The detail of the flagship Ban Francisco

H is known that Secretary Olney is In

Porte tint citizens of the United States in

The orders to the San Francisco were
expected in view of Mr. Oluey's senti

that no other vessels nave been git en
In view of the fact that the San Fran

entire American naal force on the Eu

This fleet consists of the Baltimore, the
Oljmplu. the Mouocacy, the Concord, the
.Petrel, tlie Charleston, the Machlns, the
Yorklown, and the Detroit, and in view of
comparative safity of American Interests'
in China at present, owing to the punish
ment of the Ku-Ch'Mig murderers and the
prospect of speedy redress for the assaults
on missionaries in Cheng-lu aud its icinlty.
.such a large force is not now necessary, and
some or the vessels tnav sarely be with
drawn for service In the Levant.
As the Baltimore has been relieved by the
Olynipla and will soon Btart for the United
States, It Is likely that licr commander will
be directed to return by way of the Indian
Ocean, tlie sea of Arabia and the Red Sea,
to that she may join the San Francisco
and the Marhlehead on the Syrian coast.
The Charleston and the Detroit might
also be called on for tlilfservlce, and

XO HDASON TO FEAR.
Legitimate Stock Brokers In No Dun
Ker, Sayn Mr. Blrney.
Every bucket shop in tne District may
expect with confidence that something wUl
happen in a legal way in which each will
have a direct Interest Jest as soon as the
necessary evidence is obtained uion which
to base action.
United States District Attorney Blrney
said to The Times to-lay that these cases
will hare his attention as rapidly as pre
sented, and it may be Inferred that steps
are being taken to discover the estab
lishments, with evidence forthcoming to
establish the charges.
Mr. Birney added that legitimate dealers
have no cause to fear interruption, but in
all cases ot arrest it will be incumbent upon
the accused to show a clean record.
"Or course, we cannot control the action
of the police," added Mr. Blrney, "but I
have every reason to believe that the roree
will lie carerul, as they usually are, and
that no arrests will lie made without the
evidence to support them."

Important RenultH to Be Expected.
The nineteenth annual convention or the
Knights of-Labor in the United States and
Canada was at 10 o'clock this morning
calletl ta order In Mechanics' Hall, corner
or Pennsylvania avenueaud Four-and-a-bair
James U. Sovereign, grand master work
man or the organization, presided, with
John R. Hayes hj the secretary's chair.
Sixty-eight delegates answered to the roll
The attendance Is expected to be ma
terially Increased during the afternoon and
evening by the arrival of far-distant dele
gates, those rrom Montana, Texasand other
remote States not having yet been re
corded as present. At least 100 representa
tives will be here by the time the convention
settles down to buslnessT
"WhUe the numerlcr- strength of the con
vention is necessarily limited, owing to
the fact that but one delegate is allowed
from each 3,000 of membership, the gather
ing is in every sense or the word representa
tive. Those present are all men of unusual
intelligence, long experience In the work
of affording adequate protection to the in
terests or labor, possessing standing and In
fluence in their .respective communities,
and the utmost reliance can be placed In
their wisdom and ability to enact such leg
islation as will be for the advancement or
"WORK OF ORGANIZATION.
The morning session today was entirely
dev oted to the iv ork or organization. The
question or credentials was the only sub
ject under discussion, and a conclusion bad
not been reached when a recess was taken
at 12:45 until 2 o'clock p. m., and the
delegates partook ot lunches at the Hotel
Several contests have arisen, and the
technical question as to whether contest
ing delegates can be seated by the conven
tion without their claims having been
first passed upon by the grievance commit
tee. No significance whatever attaches to
this feature of the meeting, as it is re
garded as purely one of detail
When the preliminary work of examining
and accepting credentials shall have been
completed working committees will be ap
pointed and the regular work or the ses
sion begin. The rirst matter or general in
terest will be the annual address of Grand
Master Workman Sovereign.
To The Times reporter Mr. Sovereign
said that his address would be quite brier
and only touch upon matters appertaining
to the organization of which he is the head
In a general way. ills annual report will
come later and be more specif ic in Its char
acter. This will be disposed of In prac
tically the same way as the President's an
nual message to Congress.
It will bo divided up into blocks, so to
speak, and distributed among the various
committees, each being given thoe por
tions referring to topics with the considera
tion of which they are especially charged.
These will come up, after due examination
by the committee, for discussion and action
by the convention as a whole.
EXECUTIVE BOARD REPORT.
The report of the executive board has
been practically completed nnd only awaits
transmission to the convention. The work
or the j ear lias been examined and gathered
together ror information and inspection.
It will show that, great progress has been
made and the condition of the order is
better today thati ever before In its history.
The delegates, without exception, all
bring In tlie most encouraging reports from
the sections of the country they represent.
AH testiry to the growth and prosperity
or tlie organization, and confidently predict
its steady Increase and continually devel
The regular sessions of the convention
will be held each day rrom 0 o'clock a. ni.
to 12:30 p. m., and rrom 2 to D o'clock
p. m. There has been no limit placed on the
duration or the meeting, but sessions will
continue rrom day to day until the work
Is rinally completed.
During the present session many matters
of vital importance to the organization
will come up ror consideration. Among
these will be a proposition to change the
method or collecting the per capita tax
At present all taxes are paid by the various
locals direct to the general office.
The change proposed will place the col
lection of the per capita tax in the hads
of the district assembly to which the locals
The next proposed change Is an Increase
in the charge for all new charters, seals,
and, in fait, everything pertaining to the
formation of new organizations.
Another important measure which will
be introduced is one providing for mem
bership of individuals in maIl towns and
the rural districts where there are no
The convention will also make an em
phatic denial of the rumor that the as
sembly at New Orleans, La., had admitted
barkeepers and bartenders to membership.
There are cases where members of tteK.
of L. find It necessary to accept tempo
rarily positions as waiters and bartenders
In saloons, but that Is nil.
THE STEERING COMMITTEE.
The convention will not hold nlgbt ses
sions unless they become absolutely nec
essary to expedite the transaction of busi
ness. During the evenings such of the
delegates as have uot accepted other offers
of entertainment will be taken in charge
by the local "steering committee" and es
cort cd to meetings or the various local as
semblies In this city. '
