The charge on the blotter against Mater
is nssault and battery, but it is said there
is an old indictment for falee pretenses
hanging over him. and that he was sur
rendered by Dr.Kobertson. his bondsman.
When seen last night Mr. Mater refused,
to suy anything about his trouble, lurther
than that he would be cleared ot allcharges

Ham has been working for years, lo find a

The only Interruption to the consideration
of the report of the committee on laws at
the afternoon tcsiiou of the general as
sembly of Knights ot Labor was the Intro
duction and adoption of a preamble and
resolution expressing the sympathy of the
knights for the belligerents ot Cuba.
The prcambleand resolution are short, but
emphatic in tone and are as follows:
"Whereas, the Cubans are at present en
gaged in a struggle to achieve their Inde
Iiendence against an alien and tyrannical
"Whereas, the result of the act of the
contest has made it obvious that the native
forces cannot iiosstbly be subdued and that
a further continuation of the present status
will only tend to deepen the general misery
all over the island of Cuba, and,
GRANT THEM RECOGNITION.
"Whereas, we. as the citizens of the fore
most republic In the world, should at least
be willing to-see that all men fighting for
the liberty of the land of their nativity, and
their own deliverance from foreign op
pression, should have a fair and equal
chance to meet thetr opponents In equal
warfare; therefore, be It
"Resolved that- the general assembly of
the Knights of Labor, representing every
section of the country and all conditions
of humanity, does hereby declare Itself
In favor ot the immediate recognition
of the Cubans as belligerents."
The above preamble and resolution were
adopted without a dissenting voice.
Section 7a, of the laws of the order was
amended so as to permit any one over
sixteen years of age to become a member.
The- exceptions to this rule are manufac
turers ami owners of liquor establishments,
lawyers, bankers, stockholders, and gam
blers. This change dors not prohibit
any member of the order from becoming
a. bartender or a waiter In any place
n here liquor is sold.
RECOGNIZING LAPSED LOCALS.
Section 192. artlchr30, of the constitu
tion was so changed that In the cafes of
"lapsed" locals, five members In good
standing: may constitute a quorum for
the purpose ot reorganization. At pres
ent It requires fen members in good stand
ing to keep a local alive.
The cost ot obtaining a charter for a
new organization lias been reduced from
S13 to $8. The proposed local, however,
most pay all expenses of the organization.

the Open Meet Ins.
General Master Workman Sovereign and
several of the delegates to the General As
sembly or K. or L-. addresd-a large meet
ing; last evening at Society Temple, comer
of Fifth and G streets northwest.
The meeting was beW. under the aus
pices of Carpenters Council, and was at
tended by nearly every member of the craft
In tin- city. Besides these there were
present representatives of every other
The meeting: was called to order by Mr.
W. F. Moran, master workman of Carpen
ters' Association No 1748, K. of L., who
requested Mr. W- H. G.Simmons, master
workman D. A. 6. to preside.
The speech of the everting1 was by Master
Workman Sovereign. Though not a car
penter, he-said, he watorn under a car
penter's bench and could therefore pre
sume lotaltto carpenters. Bytradebewas
a stonecutter, a builder of monuments for
the dead and he intended, he said, lo stay
in the buslre-'S until he had erected a tomb
stone over avartce,cupldlty,and capitalism.
He then referred to the arrest or four
men. at Los Angelon. CaL, becauso one
of them spoke to the engineer of a passings
train. This he denounced as even a greater
outrnge-.tr such a thing a ere possible, than
the incarceration of Debs.
These men were sentenced to eighteen
months imprisonment and the worst fea
ture of It all Is that Justice Brewer, ot
the Supreme Court, has Just banded down
an order conflrmmg the opinion ot the
lower court. Bat thlsj was necessary, he
said, for capital demanded It.
The great misfortune to the laboring
classes is. he said, that they spent too
much time and money In efforts to arrange
the question of wages- This Is expending
force in the wrongs direction, for they all
should know that the fundamental principle
of the order Is to atiolish the wage system
altogether and Institute a co operative
plan, for the laboring classes. What ad
vantage would It be. he asked, tor the
-wages to be Increased twice or treble
what they are If the cost of all tht neces
sities of life were proportionately in
creased. None at all. So It could easily be
seen that that should not be the-end aimed
"i: don't know wbatyour wages are. nor
do I want to know. I do know that as
civilization advances so do the arts and
sciences, and with them the neceitles
or society Increase. So It Is that as the
years advance your needs and wants ac
cumulate. Hence the necessity for more
money to provide them.
Mr. IT. J- Lluholm of vChlcago said that
the Knights of Labor had done more to
increase wages and shorten hours ot labor
In the- United States than all other in
fluences combined, but that was not their
ambition. There was another feature, the
education of the masses, whldi they were
striving, tor. and would not cease until they
Mr. J. M. Kenny of New York, a mem
ber of the national executive board ot the
K. or L.. spoke of the displacement of
workmgmen by tho introduction of ma
chinery hi all branches or trade.
"The- question which confronts us then
is how is this to be counteracted! Will
It be by labor underbidding labor? No, I
hope not. The only hope for a satisfactory
solution of this question is In the success
of the fundamental principles of the K. of
L.. the co-operative system, by w hlch the
laborer can get the benefit ot alt his labor
"Machinery, whllo It Is a child or the
brain. It -will be noticed Uiat it la the
child ot the worklngman's brain. Tor you
have never heard of an Invention by any
of the 100 or that class."

Glenn and McDowell Said to Have
Pooled Their Fight.
Although Congress will assemble two
weeks from yesterday, fewer than thirty

McDowell ot Pennsylvania and
J. W. Glenn ot Cuba. N Y., opened their
headquarters at Wtllard's Hotel yester
day. The two gentlemen are understood to
have formed a combination to secure the
offices of clerlr and doorkeeper, respec

is also, a candidate for clerlr, and has In

The Kansas representatives-have a can

It has been reported that the colored
