Mr Pd.ly The aim of the or
ramsvimof the Knights ot Labor Is
tj bvn fit the laborer and to secure a
better feell g bttween him and bis
employer. All our methods a e peace
ful. We nevtr counsel anything of a
ylolent nature. A member of tbe or
gaaiaation may, once in a while, com
mit ac ti of violence. We cannot help
that. It is a matter beyond our con
trol ; because, when men feel that they
i.ve endured wrong, there is no law
' which cn propnily teitrain them.
The. Chairmnn Di I nnderatand

Churned that it is no more than rwht
for bo'h to meet on equal terms, and

I want itonrieis ood that, so far as our
Executive B a'd is concerned, I have
from over 4Xl) aaaembliea letters of
indoreemrnt of a'sreet circular of
mine which, sinm it was issued, has
been mad; public, Theee indorse
ments bear me out in what I have
said, so that you can understand from
the tenor of tbe circular the character
of our org-aniztiion. When I stated
that our organiajtion was willing to
meet our contestants before the courts
I hsd no idea that I was making a
wrong aUtemeLt. J. believe that
the Uw of tbe land is higher than any
organisation, and that when a man vio
lates tbe law of tbe land either as a
Knight of Labor, rr as a private
ciiiz -n, or as a member of a corpora
tion, he should be punished for it
and that bis connection with an or
ganization should be bo shield for
him; and I have thought on tbe
other hand that the man who violates
the law and is worth millions of dol
ls rs should suffer the same as the poor
man. I have made that statement, and
people have seen fit to see in it a
tendency to anarchy. If that is an
archy, in tbe name of God what is law.
Mr. Burns tbe country generally
(and I doubt not, properly) teems to
fdace a good deal of confidence in yonr
ntegrity, your intelligence, and youi
patriotism. Being disposed to con
sider qnostions practically, I ask if you
nave given tnousnt to the Question of
a legislative remedy for the evils to
hich you have alluded."
Mr. Powderly I have never worked
it out properly; I have thought it
over, but have not followed it to its
Mr. Burns Will you be able, dur
ing the sittings of this committee, to
give us your views on the question of
the remedy for the wrong?
Mr. rowderiy How Ions is tbe
committee likely to sit?

Mr. I'owdnr'v I think I will be
able, because in that time you will
have an official declaration from the

they must deal there, but they are re
minded that it is to their interest to

to reach the ear of the president of
the compiny it must go through the
euprinter.dent, and a man will be
d i charged as soon as be utters a word
u f complaint. The men whose money
Is invested in the lailroad know noth
ing about this. In many places double
jinces are chargf d in theee stores.
Mr. Buchanan Will you be liable
to furnish specific instances of this
Mr. Powderly The committee will
find proof of all thtse things. Tbe
men amo commam convicts are
hn tight from tbe penitentiaries in
Texas to work on the tailroads aud
that striped suits may be seen side by
side with honest labor in track repair
ing. That statement has been made to
me by members of the committee.
Mr. Buchanan You promised to
furnish tbe committee with some
view as to the legislative remedy for
troubles of the kind now existing.
Will yon also, in considering that
question, take into view the complex
nature oi this government and the li
vidid responsibility between the Fed
eial and State legislation, so as to
make your suggestion such as tbe Na
tional Legislature can duly act upon. '
Mr. Powderly I will do so.
Mr. Grain What is the principle of

Mr. Fowderly Our organiiation
aim tJ settle all differences by arbl

one reason why we have didlculty in

until rrcontly that our organisation
should have a thing ta do with
stiikes. 8o, too, boycotting is sotne
thli g which we have never legislated
on but once, and that was to rtstiain

go at ill further.

We often see children with ml
eruptions on face and hands, roueh.
scaly skin, and often sores on the
head. Theee things indicate a de
praved condition of the blood. In
the growing period, children have
need of pure blood by which to bui'd
up trong and healthy bodies. If Dr.
Pierce's Hiolden Medical Discovery"
is given, the blood is nurgr-d of Its
bad elements, and the child's devel
opment will be health v. and aa it
should be. Scrofulous affections,
ri keis, fever-sores, hip-joint distaso
or other grave maladies and sunVring
are sure to result from neglect and lack
ot proper attention to mic.h caws.

London, April 20. Jesse Colling,
Liberal, the author of the "tbree-ncrrS-and-a-cow"
amendment, which de
bated tbe Salisbury government, and
who bas just been unseated as Parlia
ments ry member for Ipswich, because
of fraudulent electioneering pnrpo-ei,
puousues a letter in to-day's Timet, in
which he ssys he deprecates the ac
ceptance of Mr. Gladstone's bill with
out a thorough examination of the
safeguards proposed. On this subject,
Mr. Collings says, hardly a sentence
bas yet been uttered by any of the re
sponsible Ministers. "The main argu
ment in favor of the home rule bill,"
said tbe writer, "is tbat there is no
other alternative to conceding the
Irish an independent Parliament than
that of coercion. This argument we,
who yield to none in svmnathv and
affection for Ireland and in condemna
tion of the present government in that
country, absolutely decline to accept,
especially at tbe hands of thoss wbo,
in a few weeks, have not worked out,
but adopted a plan to eolve a problem
which is the growth of centuiies, and
wno admits that authority and not re a
ton la the basis of their faith."
Mr. Collings then proceeds to ehow
that tbe safeguard of the DioDcsed
double orders in the Irish Parliament
is delusive. "Ice (act tbat this pro
posal emanates from a respected
rremier alone preserves it from ridi
cule by the whole Liberal party."
Mr. Collings adds that Mr. Glad
stone s original proposal contained
surrender of the control of tbe Irish
customs and excise to Ihe Dublin
government and argurs that in that
shape the home rule bill was rigb t and
logical, because no other arrangement
couia ppsiliny be permanent. A
separate Parliament, the wiiter con
tends, must demand and would toe
certain ta eventually secure fiscal in
dependence. Ihe i'ariiellites would
be bound to follow the popular stream
or be left behind by a new patiiotic
party which would arise and demand
the abolition cf thoss things now
locked upon as safeguards of the in
tegrity of the empire. "Therefore,"
Mr. Collings goes on. "we must take
it for granted that the congregated
scheme will fail, because it is a scheme
of separation and for a repeal of the
union, which restrictions it would be
impossible to maintain. Those who
vote for the measute on its second
read'ng without positive assurance
that Irish representation at West
minster will be retained, will vote for
Tbe remainder of the letter is de
voted to urging the adoption of Mr.
Chamberlain's federation principles
instead of those proposed by Mr.
Gladstone. John Bright is quoted
sgainst the dual principle in an Irish
legislature. Washington's farewell
address is referred to as a powerful ar
gument in favor of federation aa op
posed to separation. The letter con
cludes as follows: "I yield to none in
loyalty to, and admiration of. Mr.
Gladutone. but I do complain of his
springing his Irish schemes upon the
country without first consulting the
1BTTKB VBOM JOSKra CBAIKIIKBLAIN.
A leiter from Mr. Joseph Chamber
lain on tbe differeneo between his
plan of llritish federation and Mr.
Gladstone's home rule policy has been
made public by the correspondent
wno rtceivea it, and is attracting at
tention. In this letter Mr. Chamber
lain eaya : "It is, of course, impossible
mr any one except a responsible Min
ister t elaborate a scheme of federa'
tion. It is noceseary to find how far
the Welsh and Scotch, as well as the,
English, desire decentralization. My
idea is that of provincial assemblies,
occupying the same position as the
local legislatures do in the American
and Canadian States, the subjects on
wnicn tney are allowed to legislata
being delegated to tbem, financial and
imperial questions remaining wi hin
the control of the imperial legislature
at Westminster. If Wales and Scot
land should not desire to have such
local legislatures that would be no
lesson why the experiment of the es
tahlishment of one should not be tried

QUESTION AND ANSWER.
Mr. Dana Indulges In a Little Hamcar
at Mr. Cleveland's lipeate,
Naw York, A ril 19. The follow
ing is clipped from the editorial of the
Sun thia morning: Suppose that after
President Orover Cleveland had won
the lady whose comely and intelligent
countenance wai accmately portrayed
in the Sun of yesterday, a delegation of
Kolemn prigs should go to the Whits-
ltone caying: "Hir, be consistent and
not too hasty. There are other candi
dates. The fact that she hai chosen
you does not count. Among yonr
rivals there may be some man brtter
tilted for the responsibilities which
you desire to aaaume, and we there
fore suggest that you submit along
with the aspirauta t J whom the lady
bas sot expressed her preference, to a
competitive examination in arithme
tic, algebra, geography, American his
tory and syntax. This important sp
pointmaBt should he determined by a
strict application of the merit system."
Would not Mr. Cleveland kick his ad
visers out of tbe door oi the White
Home away over the head of the
broDEe b tat ne of Gen. Andrew Jack
