reasonable now to believe tho reports

A movomont is on foot in this nnd
other cities to form n National District
Asssombly of 'longshoremen nnd dook

A convention of delegates from 'longshore
men's organizations in tho United States and
and Canada has been called to meot on
March 1 at Pythagoras Hall, 134 and ISO Canal
stroet, in this city.
Leaders of tho 'longshoremen's unions and
local assemblies, nided by tho organizers of
tho Knights of Labor, aro moving actively in
tho matter, and it is bclioved that an or
ganization including 50,000 members will
bo formed early in tho spring under
tho National Trades District rule, which
gives eacli body of workers so organized full
control of their own affairs, and ossuresthem
tho moral and financial support of tho entire
Tho projectors of this schomo also jproposo
to organize tho 'longshoremon of Great
Britain in like manner, and establish an in
ternational organization or board.
Thoro aro in tho Order of tho Knights of
Labor at tho present time 210 local assemblies
of 'longshoremen and dock laborers, and a
committee buying chargo of the new organi
zation schemo has received favorablo replies
from 163 locals. It is thought that tho others
will also favor tho project.
The disastrous striko of last winter caused
many of the 'lougshoromon to withdraw from
their old organizations. It is believed that
with a now order of things thoy will
rejoin. Thero aro ten local
nssemblirs of 'longshoremen in good stand
ing in this city, Brooklyn, Jersey City nud
Hobokon, and four others aro nbont to re.
organize. All theso locals will sond dolegates
to tho convention. Boston 'longshoremen Bond
word that thoy aro pleased with tho idea and
will send representatives. Thoro aro five
local assemblies in that city, with a member
ship of 4,200.
Mr. Bailey, of tho Gcnornl Executive
Board of the Knights, has promisod to do
all in hia powor to aid tho movement, and
has recommonded it to 'longshore
men's tmions. Ho also recommends that
tho proposod National Assembly adopt sub
stantially tho constitution, and by-laws of
the Miners' and Mine Laborers' National As
sembly, No. 135.
Invitations havo boen sent to all open
unions of 'longshoremen in this and neigh
boring cities to send dolegates to tho convention.
In Canada thoro aro nine locals of 'long
shoremen, They and the organizations at
Savannah, New Orleans, Baltimore, Charles

great body of dock laborers at tho various
ports on the lakes will join in tho scheme.
When tho National Assombly is formed a
delegation will bo sent to Groat Britain to
confer with 'longshoremen thoro in regard to
an international organization.
Tho projectors of the now organization say
that its policy will bo ono of poaco and conservatism.

On Oct. 8 last Canavan saw a big, ferocious HjH

Newfoundland in aa unequal fight tn tbVH

ho lodged. In attempting to scparaUtflH

ono of tho brutes, a big gash boinitH
mado in tho small finger of V3

that Canavan liftod it clear from the groun&jjH

Canavan no concern, though it did not seernH

At intervals the agonized sufferer was por-5B

There was a continued struggle all nlghtjIH
