KNIGHTS OF LABOR SILENT.
They Havo Nothing to Say About Mr. Faw.
derly'e Hecent Utterance.
Tho interview with General Mastor Work,
man Powderly in this morning's Woiuj has
been tho subjoot of much excitement and
comment to-day among tho Knights of Labor
in this city and vicinity.
It is g'enorally admitted that Mr. Powderly
is level-headed nnd wise in his administra
tion, and his most erudite critics are loath to
say a word against him, for they have been
with him heretofore, and to place themselves
on tho record now as antagonists would put
them in n ridiculous position before the
Knights and the public
It is singular that men who aro prominent
in tho order in this city were a year ago
strong hud uncompromising supporters of
Mr. Powderly, but now they aro his
severest critics. They oppose him
at every step, but thoy do not
quostion his honesty. These same men ridi
cule tbe idea that Mr. Powderly intends to
resign. They say that he will remain in his
present position until his successor is elected,
which, they assort, will certainly bo dono at
tho next General Assembly,
Five prominent Knights, who wero asked
by a world reporter for an expression of
opinion upon tho matter printed from the
General Master Workman, refused to speak
for publication. One man said that if he spoke
ho would mako a sensation, and others said
that it was not proper for thorn to speak, but
they wore in full accord with the present ad.
ministration of tho order and declared that
tho half million members still in the organi
zation fully sustained tho administration.
All tho Knights who wero seen were unan
imous on one point that Toe World, in
printing the two columns and a half inter,
view, had given the Order much needed in
formation, and, as usual, kept in the van in
all such matters.

that it would be poor policy to

occasioned hero by a report that Secretary
Bayard had Bent tho Mexican Government a
claim on bohalf of Cutting for n largo sum of

Information from Government circles, how
ever, is to the ofloct that tho Unitod States
hove not niado peremptory demands on Mox

future amicablo relations, to modify hor laws
regarding extra territorial jurisdiction, and
has suggested indemnity for Cutting, leaving
Mexioo to name the amount.
Thore is no bad feeling in Government
circles, but likely to be much angry talk in
tho press. Tho United States made the re
quest three weoks ago, since which tho Presi

cordial to Amorican visitors. The matter, it
is said, will go through the usual diplomatic
channels, and satisfaction is expressed that
Mr. Bayard has handled tho caxo so as to
avoid placing Mexico in an embarrassing po
sition. No decent American hero would support
a olaim for Cutting, for all bellevo him to be
simply a notoriety seeker, who deliberately
attempted to make trouble between tho two
countries. Gen. Jackson was Minister hero
at tho timo, and never believed that Cutting's
case had a leg to stand on, and regarded it as

she would soon walk over Ferguson's grave.
Two nights afterwards Mrs. Ferguson, hor

the victims had been poisoned with strych

of a morning paper, against Charles
B. Westbrook, who sinco May has

tricUAttornoy Walker, the conduct of tho
defense in various suits brought by import

Collector Magone, Special Deputy McClel
land, in chargo of tho Law Department, and
Deputy Collector Magono denounced
tho accusations against Mr. Westbrook
as being utterly baseless, and as instigated
by a corrupt ring of importers, aided and

in the Custom.House to throw discredit upon
Mr. Westbrook and tho Democratic adminis

to Inspector Byrnes for inspection.
In relation to tho transfer of these papers
Secretary Phillips told a Would reporter
this noon that it was done after consultation

his old home.
He said with much feeling that he hod
tried oi every way to redeem his son, but tho

fast until ho gives mo back my girl's letters."
Driscoll referred to a uackaco of letters
which woro found in Ills cell during tho
soaroh instituted while he was at court yes
terday. It mado him vcry angry when ho
realized that he had been deprived of thorn,
and his constant grumblo lost night was t
" Ho might have been content with half
starving me and taking away my exeroiso
without collaring my girl's letters. "
When tho wardon ncord that there was
great danger that Drieooll would not oat his
breakfast ne laughed and said that he didn't
care. In half an hour the Whyo chief
thought bettor of his terrible threat
and took his food gladly, despito tho
fact that his letters were still withheld.
Warden Walsh is determined to rendor it
impossible for Drisooll or any of the other
oondemnod men to got as near escaping as
Lyons and Drisooll were yestorday. Dan
Lyons, who is to hang for shooting young
Quinn, has beon taken from the second tier
to oell IS in Murderers' Bow. Lorenz Reich,
tno who muruorer, nas also naa ms quartors
Each of tho condemned cells were searched
this morning by the Warden in person,
accompaniod by two keepers. This pro
gramme will bo followed twice daily in tho
caso of every man under sentence of death.
Tbe puzzling thing about tholittempt of
Lyons and Drisooll Is that all attempts lo
find the saw with whioh tbe thick iron bars
were severed have proved futile. A thorough
search has beon mado not only of tho cells
formerly occupied by the condemned mon,
but of the surrounding passageways. The
Erisoners, who were at exercise yesterday,
ave also been searched, and the conclusion
is irresistible that the Implement has boon
conveyed outside tho prison.
Wardon Walsh's theory is that a friend of
Lyons, who has visitod him dally, passed him
the saw through the grated door of his oell, .
and that after Lyons got his bar sawed
through ho passed it to Driscoll. He thinks
that Driscoll got wind of the discovery
yesterday in time to get rid of the saw in a
similar way before he was searched.
Tho Warden says that ho knows tho name
of tho man who brought the saw into tho
prison, but will not make it publio booausa
in the absence of the Implement he cannot
prove anything against him.
Driscoll's desperate attempt will have tho
effect of bringing the death watoh to the
prison earlier than usual. Hitherto the Sheriff
has put his men in the condemnod cell ten
days before the execution.
As Driscoll's execution is fixed for Jan. 20
the death watch is not dne for five weeks
Sot, but the Sheriff is said to intend setting
lo death watch on Dec. 16.
Whon Warden Walsh was asked about this
ho said : " I wish Sheriff Grant would send
the death watoh right away and take tho
responsibility off my hands. Driscoll is a
desperate man and ho seems to havo friends
who know how to help him.
' ' You must remember," Bald tho Warden,
" that this is not the first attempt at escape
from tho prison mado by Drisooll. Eight
months ago he and the murderer Smith con
ooctod a pretty clever plan to get free.
Smith tried to dig through tho floor, but
Driscoll managed to get a key made whioh
fitted his oell door. He also had a false beard
and mustache smugglod into his cell.
" Bee." continued Mr. Walsh, opening a
drawer in his desk t " here are the articles.
It was arranged that in the dead of night tho
friend who had the key should open Dris.
ooll's door and he should come out dis
guised in this falso beard. Smith
expected to work his way out at tho
soma time, and the two had planned to catch
the keoper off his guard, hit him on tbe hood
and get out. But I managed to intimate to,
Driscoll's friend that I knew all about the
key and that the scheme wouldn"; work."
The key produoed by tho Warden was of
brass and was very cleverly made. The false
beard was also of tho finest make and was of
such a sizo as to rondor a man totally un.
recognizable by his best friends.
Howe & Hummel, Driscoll's counsel, in.

but tho petition has not yet beon prepared.

HARVARD'S FOOTBALL PROTEST.
Baaed on Improper Piny by Ynle The

Tho Graduate Advisory Committee of tho
Intercollegiate Football Association will
meet at tho Fifth Avenuo Hotel this even,
ing to consider tho protest of tho Harvard
eleven against the deoision of the refereo in
the great chompionahip gamo played at the
Polo Grounds on Thanksgiving Day.
Bradlee Palmor, manager of the Harvard
team, who was soen by a AVobld reporter this
morning, deniod the statement that tho pro.
test was based on timo being called too early
in tho first forty-five minutes of the gamo.
" We are contesting tho deoision of Befcrco
Hnucock solely on tho ground of improper
play on the part of Oorbin, Yale's centre
rush," He said the ball was not put properly
into play by the contre rush. It did not
touch a third man beforo Corbin received it
and made the touchdown, Corbin did this
several times during; the gamo and was but
once called back bv tho referee.
" I wish," contlnuod Mr. Palmer. " you
would make publio the fact that Beforeo
Hancock bad no bots on tho game when it
was played. He had but ono bet on the ro
sult at any time, and that was with me.
Whon it was mado ho did not know ho would
referee the game. On the morning of
Thanksgiving Day ho coma to me and said
the bet was off."
