The blnlT may bo Baved, but it

Mwuiltfl of the impetuous river. The
government cannot bo a-ked to do

as those IrontinR on the river, should
ubscribe, and upon a has s to be
agreed npon that will secur a fair pro

lots jeopardized in each coho. And
the amount of thissnbrription should
be decided npon while the engineers
are preparing their plans, so that
work may bo begun without delay so
soon as the river goes down. There
is not a moment to lone.

1 HE PRISCIPAL TOPICS WHICH
WILL HE CONSIDERED
By the Knights of Labor Convention
at Cleveland Powderly'a
DECIDED AT LAST.
Tke Naprerae onrl Beel4es the
HeNitlrr fftanti'dent Ke
Ex Congressman O. N. Limison of
Ohio, was in the city yesterday accotn
paaied by Mr. And rson, a well known
railroad tngineer of New Yorlt, 1 ,t the
pnrpcse of initiaticg a new lice if
railroad from Memphis to Ciirard,
Kai., with a view ultimately to eatend
it to Nebraska and drain the gtana
riea of the great Northwest. Col.
Lamison repretenta the Biyce
Thomas syndicate, which a few d ys
ago accomplished tbo purchise of the
wbo'e of the East Tennessee, Virgloi
and Georgia syttem, including the
Memphis and Cbarlettoa railroad.
This syndicate his $10,000,000 at iti
di'poral, acd with it proposes to build
the above mentioned line to Kanrai
and bridge the Mississippi at th"
point, ins done, tae la-mers l
Kamai acd the Northwest will find a
continuous line to New York, aad the
ahortett on the continent, by tha rail
roads meotirned connecting with
the Richmond and Danvi Je, the Shen
nandoah Valley, the Cumberland Va
ley ind the l'eantylvanla rMlroadi.
And thus we bnve anothtr proif that
Memphis ta to be in the near futue
the gna'.est railroad center in the
Southwest, and that the rooet wide
awake lalroad men, seeing this, are
putting their money into inveitineati
that will increase its rsilrcad fioilit.es
and make it so beyond tho perad
venture of a d inht.
THE MIKKtlNIPri RIVER.
Seia'or Van Wytk of Nevada was
just the man to make the report tbut
we publish ia another column from
the Bsna'e Committee on the Improve
ment of the Misiissippi River. His
igoortnee of the river fit'nl him for
the duty. It is a tiwus of mwitate
ments snd absurdities so glaring that
any ens at all informed as to the great
river will see them at a glance. The
Eads jetties havs proven a great suc
cess, and the decrta-e in the com
merce of New Orleans, if any there
be,, is due to the port chtrges
and the crossly niiimanaged muni
cipal government ttat bai hiniWed
and hampered the growth ci that city,
and all bat stamped the life ont of it.
The Lake Borpne outlet scheme is a
job, a job with plenty of prilt .in it
It is a scheme tbat every Southern
Senator shoal J vote against, especially
those from Tennessee, Kentucky,

Clivslaiid, O., May 2-1. The
Knights of Labor were up late last
night, and, in consequence, it was
rather late this morning before i hey
were astir. It was :2t) o'clock w hen
Mr. Powderly left the hotel and it was
10:40 o'cock before tbe general as
sembly was rapped to order ly tho
chief executive. In the meantime
the delegate congregated in groups
in the hall and corridors discussi g
lab r topics. When the call for the
convention was issued by Mr. Pow
derly he only enumerated five causes
of complaint that were to be ad
justed. Tbe e wero boycott, Btrikes,
the Southwest troubles, the relation
of Knihts of Labor to other organi
zations and the instituting of new as
semblies. Hince the delegates have
arrived many of them have plans
that they would like to
SI'KISO Vl'OS THE SPECIAL SESSION.
Whether these will be discussed or
laid upon the table, cannot be deter
minpit as v. t. (n of these pNns is
to agitate the subject of :h g ivernment
regulating tne railroads, a memuer
r.f the order from Allegheny, Pa . has
prepared a lonir address upon this
HiiliWt. and ihe delegate from bis di
t'ict will trv to secure a hear ng for
h m. The gentleman's address also
deals with the project of a National
Arbitration B nrd. Another matter
was made public by free discussion
this morning. For some time past
the Executive Board have not been
satisfied with s me of the organizers o
the order, and several have had
c- arL'es nr. ferred auainst them, and
their commissions lecal'ed. A num
berof organizers are not giving satis
faction ; so, to prevent hard feelings
by removing these men, it is proposed
to have the loruinissions of every or
ganize, from the cm f down.rocalleu
A reporter asuea
MB. BICUAIU) TKKYELMCK,
the chief orwini.er. about the in tter.
and that eentleman said: "It is truo
that such a plan is being agitated.
Much of the trouble in tho oider is
rising Irotn rapidly increasing mom'
bet-ship and the installation of our as
BOIIlOlies In UUV KJ Jiuur uigani'.ai.iui.
It is not the fault ot either Mr. row
dorlv or the Executive Boa d. In
making appointments they must rely
upon the recommendatious of the dis
trict assemblies. They do not, cannot
know all the men recommendea anu
appointed. A few weeks ago I met an
organizer, wuu, x jcicw w,
under tho influence of liquor. I ssked
him where he was going and he in

This is against the rules of the order,
as we can acimn no aimers wiuie

replied that be had a commission

I told him he could institute tne As

sob'r. lnduatr ous. representative men
in these positions, it would maice
ha d feelincs to ask for their commi
sions, so it is proposed to make them
ante up from tho chief organizer
down. This c. n be done by Mr,
Powderly alone, by the Executive
Board, or by the Executive Board
under instructions Irom tne uenerai
Assembly. The host way is the latte',
and so I thins thnt it will be done in
that manner. New organizers wdl be
oomi'issionel as fast as possible, and
will be selected because of their fitness
for the position "
THE COSVESTie.H HALL
on either side is lined with tables, at
which the delegates sit. At the end
of th room, facing Out trio street,
between two windows, is the chair of

one of which he sits, at the next two
assistants and at the third toe sten

the hall is the chair of Richard tirif

Dr. WintrrHniti. Sir I rfaivaa r'j.a 1 hava,
cbaerved for many years, tbe va ue ol your
remedy prompting me to aay.in reply to-
...nut. what I kroir of villi Chill
I'ure. 'ite private assuranooa of ia rffi-acy-I
had, and tha good reaulta o( its eBerts I
badebferved on Mr. R. W. Meredith, who,,
for more than fifteen yeara, bad been fore
man ot my oflii e, induced aie to test it in
my family. The re'ulla have been entirely
satistHctory. The Brat eara was of two
years' atandinir, in which 1 believe every
known remedy had been t.iedwuh tempo
rary rrliet the cbilla ieturnm penoaiCKlly
and with 8emingl7 ircroaied severity.
Your cure broke them at once, and there baa
beeo bo recurrence of them for more than.
six months. The other rase was ol a miiuer
form, and yielded more readily to o ner
remediee; bat the chills would return at in
tervals until your medicine was used. "0
which time, now several months, they bavw
entirely diaapneared. From the opportu
nity I have bad toludge, I do not hesitate ta
exnresa my beli.t that your Chill Cure is
valuable specific, and
promise tor it.
