Their Resignation! E idenoc That

For Labor yews.
The publication in the Evening Star of
yesterday of what purported to be a re
port of the proceedings of the Federation
of Labor meeting, held Tuesday evening
at the hail, on the corner of Four-and-a-half
street and Pennsj lvania avenue, has met
with the oluntary and prompt condemnation
or leading members of that organization.
The purpose of the publication, they say,
was so manifestly an attempt to throw dis
credit Miwn The Times, the only Washington
paper that ever showed labor unselfish
firar, and was ateo so obviously in the
Jn4erct of the StRr. that its object will
They deny that Messrs Rea and Clem

resignations from the press committee
as were given in the Star.and that is sub

press ooainiiuee, nays that upon this point
he gave no such information as that quoted
in the article

erul others of that organization are fully
informed of the circumstances connected
with the case The sratement of the Star
is falte and contains not one iota of fact.
The story as given in the Star is charac
terised by labor leaders as mischievous and
misleading, and in the main essentials
wholly false, and it publication lias brought
to the surface the proof that in times past,
prior to the appearance of The Times, its
evening contemporary did charge organ
ized laitor for the publication of labor
news, and the further fact appears that
since the advent or The Times there has
been a decided change in the policy of that
paper When that fact is proed there
seems to be but little left of the Star's
The Times will permit those interested
to speak for themselves
IMPLIED AN ANTAGONISM.
T resident James F McHugh, or the
Federation of Labor, when his attention
wens called to the publication in the Star,
expressed rogrct that it had ever appeared
in prtt, because it implied an antagonism
to The Times, which does not exist.
"It was not fettled that there should be
consultation or the press committee," raid
he, "concerning what should apjwar in
pntot, but it is underttood, aud amounts to
a rale, that no one member shall gie out
news without advising his colleagues,
"The Times is a consistent friend to
labor, and its reputation m Washington Is
that of a pioneer m the cause. It deserve
the hearty support of every man connected
with every labor union in the District.
The paper and its recognized head hae my
highest regard "
When atked if Messrs. Rea and Clements
resigned for reasons published in the Star
when they declined to serve on the press
oanitHUtee, Mr McHugh said no He re
inemliered having heard no such remark.
They did not say what was charged.
CONCILIATING OCR ENEMIES.
"There is an old Grecian sajing," said
Mr. W H G Simmons, District master
workman of the Knights of Labor, "that
'the wise man conciliates his enenij ' That
is a good thing to act upon and to perpetu
ate, bat in so doing it docs not follow that
we must sacrifice our friends. In concil
iating our enemies we often do such a

disastrous. Workmgmen know this by

STAR CHARGED FOR IT.
Mr. George KeJthlcy, for years a promi
nent member of the Carpenters' Assembly
of it Knigliis of Labor, but now a con
tractor and builder, who resides at No.
612 Pennsylvania avenue southeast, was
asked last night whether he had ever known
the Evening Star to charge a labor organi
zation for publishing a statement in the
Interest of labor, and said:
"Yes; I am personally cognizant of it,
end have a copy of the article, written
by myself, now in my possession."
Mr. Keithley produced it, and it is now
in the possession of The Times. It is a
statement that appeared in the columns
sfThe Star May 11, 1689, under the sig
nificant caption of "Tho Other Side."
Mr. Keithley said:
"For about eighteen months I served
Carpenters Assembly No. 1,748 and Lo
cal Dnion No. 1 of Carpenters and Joiners
as their business agent. It was a matter
of commoa comaliunt among, labor jicasJA.
that the newspapers were unwilling to
publish anything for them or in their in
terests when it could be avoided, while tlie
corporations and capitalists were seemingly
having eerything printed iu their col
umns that in any way served thorn.
"I distinctly remember that ou one oc
casion ft stat-nient appeared in the Evening
Star of this city that was veiy obnoxious
to laboring men generally, especially the
carpenters, and we sent a communication
to th" manngerts of the paper in which we
attempted to refute and otherwise answer
the allegations which the oilier article
contained. After some delaj what pur
ported to be the communication was pub
lished, bat it had lieen so mutilated as to be
ONLY FOR PAY.
"I afterwaids wrote another communica
tion on another subject and personally
carried it to the Star office, with a re
quest for its publication. It was the
article I just gae jou. After it was in
spotted by some one in the oifice I was
informed that it would not be published
except for pay. I asked what the expense
would be and was told it would cost $30.
Seeing no other way to get the matter
before the public, I told them to publish
it and present their bill The amount, $30,
was afterward paid by the organizations,
and tlie receipt Is doubtless now on file.
"This statement is made simply in the
interest of Justice and right and for no
other purpose, and if it is necessary I can
make affidavit to the pajment of the $30
for the publication."
In regard to the Star's statement con
cerning the resignations of Messrs E. J.
Ilea aud S A Clements, of the press com
mittee, Mr Miirord Spohn, one of those
appointed to fill the vacancies when seen
by a Times reporter last evening denied
that either Mr Kea- or Mr Clements, in
stating the cause of their resignations,
saidnnyihing in regard to being financially
interested iu the paper, only to which they
were willing to luruish information about
"They both stated," said Mr Spohn,
"that tlie cause of their action was that
they were not willing to furnish any in
formation to tlie reporters of any other
paper but The Times; but that was all
"I do not think that The Times has ever
asserted that the Star is unfriendly to
the laboring people, although that senti
ment exists among hundreds of laborers"
Mr. Spohn said that ho furnished tho
Star with a part of the material upon
which its publication was based, bjt there
were portions of the article that were in
accurate, and were not supplied by him.
Mr. Arthur Keep, a member of the Fed
eration press committee, and a tailor by
"I have read the article in the Star, and
consider it very ingeniously gotten up.
It Is entirely misleading, for it would
appear from reading it that there is a
change of sentiment in labor circles to

Eentiment on the floor of tho Federation
during the so-called debate Tuesday even
ing was overwhelminglj in favor or Tho

"Besides, I know that the tailors have
had to pay the Star for articles which they
wanted published. One was concerning

that it was practically valueless to or
"Another thing: From n reading of the
publicition in to-day's -Star one not ac
quainted with the facts would believe that
arter a lengthy debate an amendment was
made to the resolution in question. That is
not true. A motion was made to sub
stitute the -word 'earnest' for 'undivided,'
but it came before there was any discusfion

"So far as I am personally concerned, I
shall give The Times my undivided support,
and the great majority of laboring men will
in my opinion do likewise. They know The
Times to be their jfriend."
Mr George W. Glasgow, the sergeant-at-arnis
of the Federation of Labor, says that
during the progress of the meeting Tuesday
eenmg the sent imenLs expressed were over
whelmingly in favor of The Times , and that
workingmeu generally will she it their
Representatives of the Painters' Assem
bly say they can submit proor in support of
the Labor Advocate's charge against the
Star, as they have that paper's receipts

It was also stated on the floor of the
Federation Hall Tuesday evening, and ha
since beeu reiterated, as the belief of leading
representatives of the local unions that
ir the publication of The Times should by
anj mischance be discontinued, the Star
would re-establish its old rule of charging
advertising rates for anything that laboT
wanted introduced into its columns.
The plasterers, in addition to the carpen
ters, painters and tailors, also recall that
they were not long ago required to pay
advertising rates for the expression of
their labor views through the Star, and say
they have cause to be grateful to The
Times for the radical change that has been
effected in this particular.

That a Magnificent Structure "Will

The handsome structure, No. 1411 New
York avenue, belonging to the Young Men's
Christian Association was completely de
strojed Tor all practical purposes by fire
and water early yesterday morning. It
was a Tierce, rabid, uncontrollable fire,
which some delay In turning in the proper
alarm gave opportunity for its work or
destruction. Tho loss is estimated vari
ously between $30,000 and $50,000, the
insurance being about $14,000.
The heavy loss to the association has
given a spur to its desire to recoup at the
firat opportunity. Tho preparation for
rising from the ashes was made literally
jesterday morning in the smoke of the
Just as soon as it had been ascertained
by the ofricers and directors or the organ

Issued a call ror a meeting or the directors '
at his ornce yesterday afternoon at 4
o'clock. All the directors in the city re
sponded to the call.
A telegram had in the meantime been
sent to Seeretary Pugh in western Pennsj 1

to go out for a spin on his bicycle He post

ADDRESS TO THE PUBLIC.
President Williamson presided at the
meeting of the directors with Mr J. H.
Lichliter as secretary In the absence of
Mr S. W. Woodward, the chairman of the
finance committee, the discussion partook
largely of a general nature, but the opinion
was unanimous that the association should
be pu ton its feetagain m a handsomer build
ing than tho one destroyed.
The need of a new headquarters was dis
cussed and there were several good offers
from which toselect.theFirstCongregational
Church, the Toundry M E. Church, and the
Western Presbyterian Church " The head
quarters were fixed temporarily atFoundry
Church, on G street, near fourteenth,
where the litter that was saved from the
building was scut.
The directors requested the president,
General Secretary Pugh and Mr. J II. Lich
liter, in combination with the finance com
mittee, to prepare an address to the public
in aid of a new building, after which the
Nearly a thousand young men and 25,000
citizens intimately and the whole city gen

upon thousands of people yesterday, many
of whom remembered it only as the Y. M.
C. A., and others as tho old Chanibcrhn
Hotel and the Club House.
There were beveral tenders or finan
cial assistance berore the smoke had rolled
away. Tho rirst contribution to the new
building Tund was made by a member of
tho association, who handed a dollar to As
sistant Secretary Harris for that purpose.
ARRIVAL OF MR. PUGH.
A great deal of interest was attached to
the coming of Mr. Pugh, who came iu at
9 p. m. oer the Baltimore and Ohio, and
was met by a delegation fiom the associa
tion, headed by Mr. H. W. Olmstead, his
brother-in-law, one of the directors. He
at once went to tho site formerly occupied
by tlie association, and viewed the ruins,
afterward going to the Hotel Ardmore,
his temporary headquarters, where a con
ference was held Tvith Messrs. Lamer
It was concluded that the building com
mittee, Mi. J. B. Larner, chairman; and
tlie finauce committee, Mr. S. W. Wood
ward, chairman; should make all Uie
arrangements for the rebuilding. Noth
ing will, however, be dorje until Mr. Wood
ward's return to the city from Newport,
Mr. Pugh said to The Times that tho
association would use Toundry Church at
present, but it was not expected that they
could domorethnn conduct prayer-meetings
there. It would bo impossible to do any
or the educational or other work of the
Institution, as all of the books and para
phernalia had been destroyed, and it is
absolutely impossible to duplicate them
at this time. In fact it was liiadUsablo
to enter upon any mo omenta until the
affans of the association wero settled.
"We have to buy everything anew," he
said. "The association Is poorer than
poverty. The fire has simply placed ua
in the position where Ave have to begin all

"The insurance," said Mr. Pugh, "Is
$14,000; the Indebtedness on the lot and

Hoarded by a Lieutenant and Four
Marines All Very Polite.
(By Associated Press.)
Breakwater, Del., July 24. Capt. Quick,
of the American schooner Carrie F. Lane,
upon his arrival hero to-night had a tale
to tell about a thrilling encounter in Cuban
waters with a Spanish gunboat.
Two shota were fired at the Lane by the
man-of-war, and one or the schooner's
crew narrowly escaped being killed by one
The vessel was made to heave to and.
give an account or herseir before being
allowed to proceed.
The schooner was of r Port Antonio , and
making good time berore a stitr breeze when
on the 14th instant she sighted a. sreanier
flying the Spanish flag following her.
Capt. Quick at first paid no attention to
the steamer, but after an hour or so, no
ticed that she was signalling him to stop.
He then examined her more closely but
could only make out that she looked like
a large tug boat, such as is usually to be
York, and other American seaports.
A SECOND SHOT.
While he was making up his mind what
course to pursue a puK of smoke curled up
o ver the steamer 's port bo w and a rou nd shot
whistled uncomfortably close to the schoon
er's mainmast and plunged into th ewater on
the lee quarter
Capt, Quick gave the order to haul in j
sail and bring the vessel to, and while
this was being done one of the crew ran
out ou the bowsprit. As he stood there
the gun on the Spanish warship boomed
again and another shot sped on its way
toward the American craft, this time
coming so close to her that tho sailman on
the bowsprit swears ho distinctly felt the
wind caused by its rapid flight.
The Lane soon eamo to a dead stop,
and the gunboat drew up under her
quarter. A boat was lowered and four
Spanish marines, under tho command or a
lieutenant in the Spanish Navy, came
The were fully armed, and their leader
very civilly lifted his cap and demanded
to know from what port the Lane had
sailed, and whither she was bound. Capt.
Quick gave the required Information and
produced his clearance papers in proof
of his assertions.
No further search was made and the
vessel was permitted to continue on her
couurse without further molestation.
TnE NAME UNKNOWN.
Capt. Quick sajs that he could not get
the name of the gunboat, although he
tried to do so, and can give no further
description of her than that she resembled
an American tugboat. He adds that after
the first shot was fired at the Lane he
caused the stars and stripes to be hoisted
at the peak, but the only response the Span
ish vessfl made to this was a second shot.
Tho gunboat did not hoist her colors
until after the first shot was fired. As
6oou as Capt. Quick reached here to-night
ho wired to his agents, in Philadelphia,
and will await advices from them berore
determining upon what course to pursue
in regard to what he considers an out
rage. He thinks that the Lane must have been
mistaken for a filibustering craft, but in
sists that there is nothing in her appear
ance to j ustiry this belief. Besides this
the vessel is well known to West Indian
