eember 25. The non-appearance; of
CoDfcreseman Re id ol North Carolina,
it the auViject of much comment
among poliiiciana and others. .It will
be reinembtred that Mr. Raid iu de-
featel for re election to Congress, and
ihortly after the prat et t station began
ogly rumors came from bis district.
lie bad mad an aeuxninent to hia
creditor, and the charges are a part of
tbe development! ot tbat transaction.
These charges are tbat be has raised
large earns of money, the total amount
of which is pnt at $35,000; that as
treasurer of bis county, which office
he held prior to his election to (Jjn
gross, be appropriated funds to his
own use, and tbat fiduciary trusts

way. inese cnargss annoyea
his friends here very considerably.
In order to set the matter at rest ttay
telegraphed to hia district, confident
of being answered by himself. The
answer came that he was supposed to
bs here in Washington. Inquiries
were started and it was found tbat
Mr. K?id had not been seen in town
ainoe tbe first of tbe month. He need
to stop at tne MetroDolittn Hotel dor
ing last session, but when he came to
town to attend the present session he
moved Into tbe more expensive Eb
bltt House. He only s'ayed there a
few days, however, and the impres
sion now prevails tbat be baa skipped
to Canada. This idea was origi
nated by himseil and my
prove to nave heen only a
blind. On the evening previous
to his departure he went to the clerk's
office of the Kbbitt and told the pre
siding fanctuary that he was expest
his newly marriew sister and
her h unhand on the following
night on their way to Canada.
He wanted to find the beet and
quickest mute to that Dominion
and asked the clerk for information.
Ad the time tables and prospectuses
of routes to Canada to he Lund in the
house were brought forth and shown
to the Congressman, and after consid
erable studying he went away appar
ently aatiifhd. He paid bis bill on
the following day and baa not been
Hi frierdi are firmly persuaded
tbat tbe affair has been much exag
gerated, although they are aware of
lis fact that he has been for some
time financially embarrassed, lie
has borrowed some money here, al
the ugh probab'y in t more than J 1000
in all. llis accounts at U.e olllce of
the Hergeant-at-Arms of the Home are
straight 83 far as ctn be ascertained.
Mr. He id is a young man, under 40,
of prepossessing appearance and good
addrees, and a inetubir of an excellent
family. His father is one of the
most distinguished Methodist cler
gymen in North Carolina, and his
brother, from whom le bus borrowed
a good deal of money, is the editor of
the Ka'eigh Chriitinn Advocate. He
himseil was esteemed a man of fine
ability. Last session wag bis first in
Oongrers. li s entrance Into politics
was made under favorable and promis
ing e renmsiances, but in the revolu
tions which swept over North Carolina
politics last fall he was defeated. This
f really discouraged him. Home small
arming interests are all be is known
to posst as outside of bis salary as a
member of Congress. His friends
here discuss his aflairs with the ntmrst
reluctanne and hope that all will yet
bs satisfactorily explained and ad
justed. Another absentee Is Mr. J. Floyd
King of Louisiana. Ha aim failed .of
a re election and he has not put in an
appearance in Washington during this
session. Home ol the Louisiana peo
ple think tbat he will not return at
all to serve the balance ol his present
term. A few dysbo'ora Mr. Morrison
called up hia tariff bill, he sent leiieated
telegrams to (Jan. King at his home,
urging the importance of hi presence
here to vole on the bill. No answer
Crime from Otto. King, though a tliB
patch was received from a clticn of
the place saving that Uen. King had
left there several days before, ami bis
whereabouts were not known to hia
neighbors, Gun. Claik, clerk of tbe
House, eays that be has not beard
from King since be went" home at the
close of liut siwaioti. He had henrJ it
said tbat Gen. King had left his hs:rte
and was not going t) resume his 8t at
in Congress, but bid no personal
knowledge on the subjec. Hergnant-at-Arms
Leodom says that he Las re
ceived a number ol letters from Mr.
King asking that he arrange pairs with
him duriug bis absence, aud at the
time of the tariff bill vote Mr. King
wrote him from the Kt. Charles Hotel
at New Orleana. Tbe Congramonul
Record shows that Uen. King
has been paired but twice during
the eeesion, which would Indicate
tbat he was not very much
concerned abrmt h'S position on the
various queations. Home of Uen.
King's friends say he has long since
contemplated removing to Mexico,
and they attribute his absence to this.
In ttiia city Uen. King is in very
bai oior. He is heavily in debt, and
things would be made very hot for
him were he to return here. His
debts are all dishonorable ones which
he his contracted without the slight
est Idea of ever paving. There is a
poorjold man who hawks bomiujtd
and (lowers around the hotels who
who would be glad to meet Mr. King
agtln. He was induced to give credit
to lhat gentleman foreevtralbouquata
and is now whistling for hia money.
King's record here is of a meet unsav
But the greateet allien tee of them
all is Senator Jones, formerly ot Flor
ida, now of Detroit. As is well known
he went to tbat Western city in ore'er
to win tbe band of a fair lady. Tbe
hand was cot to be won, however, by
Mr. Jones, even though he was a Sen
ator, and so his trip to Detroit was a
failure. Meanwhile all the news
papers of tbe country had turned him
to lidicale, and t ubUhed accounts cf
hia diBguiting biauelf as a wandering
troubadour and accompanying him
self on a guitar in tingiDgcentimental
onps under the window of bis fair
lad j 'a room. Po.sibly th s made the
Sanator ashamed to return to his ant
in Cocgrrsi, or it may be that he has
found the climate of Detroit n.ore
to his fancy than that of
either Washington tr Florida.
Whatever may be his reason', the
fact remains that he baa not been
seen in the city for seven or fiv lit
months. He is still, however, drm
iog his salary as a United Hates Kt-na-tor,
although it la not legally due linn
unites the service for which it ii the
remuneration is actually pirfbrmeJ.
Until, however, enine r-'eiihtor r.iis
the po'nt in Congress the salary can
not be withheld. Hie friends feel tbe
dtegraee keenly, and his son has made
several ineffectual visits to Detroit to
indnce him to return to Washington.
Others, who are not the Senator's
friends, declare that he is a fit subject
for a lnnatie asylum.

The Union this morning publishes the

amendment shall paw each cf the
two houses of tbe General Assem

constitution provides that it sball
then be submitted to a vote of tbe
people at an appointed time. It
tbea goeson to ray : Section 3. "And
if the people sball approve and ritify

majority of all tbe cit'xsns ol the

their favor, such amendment or

In order toeee what vole at tbe polls
would.be required to pars the amend
ment, the wii'.er carefully compiled
the entire vote of each county in the
late Norembtr election. Ia order ti
get at the exact vote nqulsife it would
seem cecetsary that there should be a
report from each county of tbe num
ber of persons voting at tbe election,
as taken from tbe district polling lists.
No such report, however, ia made or
required br law to be made. Re
couise was therefore had to the artuil
votes received by tbe candidates for
the 11 nine of Representatives in
the Ueneral Aestmoiy. The total
ascribed in this article to each couuty

one Representative, or U merely in a
Floterial district, by adding together
the vote received by all the candi
da'es; where a county elects tiro or

vote received by a candid t'e on each

county votos f it a litres . ntatlve and

highor vote of tlieto.
i he total number ol "cit'zens ol tin

.majority of these is 114,811. From
tbe reading ol the constitution it were

number of votes and yet a large ma

At the Angtut election there were over
277,000 votos cast, and a majority (f
these would be i:i8,5(X). Even in tin

23U,4ti5, or nearly 7000 more than the
number r dually voting for Renresonta

Congresficual vo e of the State in the
same election was 231,41!0. not quite
2000 above tbe vote for Representa
tives. Hpecial elections, however,
generally bring out a v. ry small vo',
and if one shall bj held to vote on the
prohibition amendment, as seems
probable, it ia not likely to prove aa
entire exception to the rule. Below

k BID TANGLE WHICH GROWS
The Dissatisfaction Among tbe
KalghU of Labor Not Likely to
Result la Anything Bat a
Nw York, December 27. The Trv
bune says: Organ rd labor setms to
be in a bid tangle, which grows worse
instead 01 Detter. Tbe dissuisfaction
in tbe Knights of Labor is growing
more widoepread, and some members
of tbe order are afraid tbat tbe prts
ent difllrnlty can onlvreauit in a split,
There seems to be littl doubr tha-,
the legal rtquiremeits for a call for
a special fe'aion of the General As.
aembly will be fulfilled within a short
time, or that the call will be slgntd by
dis'rict Bfsemblies in at least bait a
ucxen Slates, perbaos twica that meny.
Among the dissatisfied element', how
ever, the feeling is tba'. no matter if
the call is made out according to the
constitution, there is no certainty tbat
tbe eeesion will be held.
One of tbem eaid yeeterday : "Oie
ot the princ pal tblngs against whic'i
we protest is the assumption of dic
tatorship by the General Execu.ive
Board and th"ir evident intention to
override tbe constitution, whenever it
conflicts with tbeir own ideas. If
Mr. Powderly should refuse to call th
special B'ssion, what could we do?
Ihe genera worthy f ireman, the next
h'gheet nfBcar, would ko' take any
action. General Secretary L'tohman
certainly would not, nor wuu'd the
Executive Board, f rr with tbe single
exception of Bary, they are all In ao-
Cjrd with Mr. Powderly. Our only
remedy would be ti call a spec al
session onnelves end then all who
attended it, would be in open revolt
and wou'd ba either expelled or sus
pended. Thii would mean a split and
whether or nnt we are prepared lor
this, I am not able to say, but it may
CJmetothat. I should be exceed
ingly sorry to see it, but if tbeon'e
is to coutinua to bs of any use to te
labor movement, something must b 1
done pretty toon."
The same opinion wa rxptesstd bv
many other Knights. Even some of
Ihe members of Dittrict Na. 4!). the
leaders of which are in thorough ac
co d with the general IU 'era. show
signs of a disposition to kick over the
tracer, and only inn no i discipline
maintained by L. B. Maguire, tho
f inner Master Workman, who is now
on tbe General Executive Board, keeps
the die a isfaction from being nliown.
Tbe local flht between the Knighls
and the open unions giowsin biiter-
nefs. and the time n not tar on when
open warfare will be proclaimed. Tlie
action of the Trades Union in Colnm
bus in tbe forma' ion of the Ameiii an
Federation cf Labor, has encouraged
the trad s ui.ion. It Is eaid, on gucd
au hority, that J. II. Ciesidy, o ieol
the mott prominent mumbera of the
Anifnc tn Kjclety ot Uarppn'era and
Joiner?, announced publicly at tbe
Cjr tral Lubar Union laet Sunday that
he Intended to "declare war to the
knife againit the Koiuhtsuf Lab r."
Tbe Knights show no dispos tinn to
shirk tbe tight, end if they and thd
unions do t ot nnd some common
ground on which they can stand, tbe
chances are tbat no strkes will be
won by the carpenters for acme time,
for the Kn ghls will take the places oi
tbe striking trades unionists ad
unionhts the placis ot the Knights
when they strike.

Philadklphia, Pa , December 27.
Uulers word is received from the Gen
eral Executive Board of the Knigt.ts
of Labor gianting the demands of tbe
assemblies of machine constructors for
a lecal trades charter, nearly 4000
Knights irt tvs city and thousands in
other parts of the conntiy will with
draw from the order. Twenty-one as
sembl es throughout the country no
tinsd tbe General Executive Board
that unices the trades rhaitar is
granted they will leave the oider, and
moat of those in this c.ty have given
notice that unless the demand is ac
ceded ti today they will withdraw.
The machinists claim as a right, nnd r
the contt tution of the order, tbat they
shall bs allowed to (Mrectttie business
iMirtaining to the'r own interes's.
Three members of the General Com
mittee'are in favor of granting these
demands, but Mr. Powderly, with a
majority of the board, is opposed to
the scheme, and it is not likely that
any word will bi received by tbe d:e
sit sflei arsemblies t"day. Some of
the machinate' eMemblies have de
cided to await until tho first of the
new yiar, and if the national charter
is not granted by that time, they will
