A Mont absurd Idea
To-niobt the grandest meeting of
wrorklngmen ever held perhaps in tho
world will take place in Union Square
New York. All the trades unions will
be represented and it is believed will
dnciare unanimously for reduced
hours of labor; ttat men who work
fourteen and sixteen hours per day
should have twelve, that men who
work twelve should have ten, ami
that men who work ten should have
eight or nine hours. By reducing the
hours of work, the Central labor Union
hopes to increase the demands for
labor and enable thousands of people
out of work to get stady employment.

Ing to learn front Mr. Powderly that
"the prospect for the future of the
laboring man in America ' is brighter
to-day than It ever was, notwithstand
ing the seemingly 'strained relations'
at present existing between employer

It has been proposed to fill Mr. Pu.

thereto Mr. Amos J. Cummings of

rives usainet it, and say he h gn0
notion of becoming a candidate for
Congress in a district in which he
does not reside. The Philadelphia
Time holds the question of residence
to be small matter, but thinks there
ought to be a law to' prohibit a man
like Cummings from leaving his place
in journalism to talie a seat in Con

kind of man will do in Congress, but
it requires the best material to suc

Tut New York UmM, long famous
for its weather wisdom, exp'ains the
presence of the "second winter,"
which made itself felt yesterday in
nipping air, and says that "when the

winds, moving from the Kquator as
upper currents, reach to and descend
on the snowc'ad polar basin, a strong
polar current must In return be set

for apprehension that existing differ

shall prevent tho steady attention cf

as tho institution in which the "feudal

largely attended by beta teachers and
Satraps and highly enjoyed by alt.
loit of the teachers present were
young, energetic and of the pro
