The Knights of Labor Members of
the Legislature, 43 in 2 umber,
DO VERY LITTLE LOUD TALKLNG,
But Thej Accomplish No Less Work Be
cause of Their Eeticence.
SOME OP THE LABOR LEGISLATION
tFEOM A STAIT COKKXKFOKDKST.l
Hakbisbubo, March 31. The 43 Knights
of Labor in the Pennsylvania House of
Representatives do not go about proclaim
ing themselves. They are for the most part
a quiet lot of men, with little to say except
when there is real need, for talk. "When
there is, they are heard from in a quiet,
business-like way. They are in complete
harmony with the policy of the able Knights
of Labor Legislative Committee that has
been working patiently and persistently
since shortly after the opening of the
The work of. tHis committee is something
positively unique in the annals of labor leg
islation, or rather of labor efforts for legis
lation. It has shown consummate tact and
ability in its methods. No man in the Leg
islature has been threatened because he was
not in complete harmony with Its views.
AFBIEJJDLY FEELING ALL ABOUND.
There has been a recognition of the fact
that men may differ honestly on important
questions, and where such differences have
developed, the men holding opposing
opinions have been reasoned with and have
had all the facts laid before them from a
labor standpoint, without heat;and with no
display of unkind feeling. Kb stings have
been left by such conferences, and where
the arguments have not convinced or con
verted, they have established a friendly
feeling that must form an excellent basis for
The Knights of Labor influence in the
House has thus far succeeded admirably on
the legislation that has been made a
specialty. The bill to establish company
stores is now on third reading in the House.
The amendment to the semi-monthly pay
law is also on third reading, a is Repre
sentative Caffrey's dockage Bill. The factory
inspection-bill, has passed the Senate and is
now before the House, where it will meet
with no less consideration.
ALL HOPE FOB THE BEST.
At the beginning of the session the labor
people expected little from the Senate, but
the liberal spirit with which the majority
treated the factory bill encourages the
Knights of Labor committee to hope for the
best for the House bills5 when they reach
the upper chamber. The employes' liabil
ity bill has been reported favorably to the
Senate, after having been amended to make
it apply generally instead of to a particular
class ot subjects. " It is likely to pass the
Senate, and though it will come late to the
House, its friends are no without hope that
it will pas;.
Another measure that is indorsed by the
Knights of Labor Committee is the amend
ment to the check weighmanact, introduced
by Representative Davis, of Schuylkill
county, whose illness has prevented its
earlier introduction. The committee feels
confident that if a special order is needed
for any of its measures it will be able to
obtain this favor with little difficulty.
MANT FBIEXDS GAINED.
The Knights of Labor strength has been
used so conservatively, so unostentatiously,
and altogether with such excellent judg
ment, that the general disposition toward it
is one of friendship and respect. In addi
tion to this, the 43 Knights of Labor in the
House will undoubtedly have influence
enough to induce a sufficient number of
others to vote with them to give them this
favor when the influence is uged in the
friendly way known among Legislators who
have bills of their own to get through. The
labor men have developed into excellent
LITTLE EXIGBT EEEAXTS.
A Band of Beiolnte Small Boys Ever Alert
New YOBKj-March 31. The most unique
and romantic club in the city is a band of
ten little knight errants, sworn to gnard
Miss Elsie Leslie from all perils and dan
gers, and if need be to sacrifice their lives
in defense of her. The leader of these
gallant and chivalrous Don Quixotes is 14,
and most of his associates are less than 9.
They have in some mysterious way become
possessed with the idea that some dire mis
iortuuewill overtake Miss Elsie if ihey
relax their vigilauce. "Whether they have
evolved this notion from their inner con
sciousness, or whether there is a similar
club of antagonistic purpose, is not quite
known, but one of their number was seen
to rush np breathlessly to a companion and
"We've got a clew at last; we will follow
it up It we perish.
Two of the knights are detailed to watch
her carriage every night as it arrives at the
stage door to see that no dynamite bomb be
in her path, and that no deadly missile be
hurled by the assassin's hand. Two more
are detailed to watch her carriage on Satur
day afternoons and guard her if need arise.
Meanwhile the sunny-haired baby star
pursues the even tenor of her way, uncon
scious alike ofher dangers and her triumphs;
leaves her enthusiastic and tearful audiences
to exclaim over her precocity and genius
while she sits down and tosses'the curls out
ofher eyes to inake dolls' clothes or recite
lessons to her governess, like. any little
maiden of nine summers. Her present am
bition is to learn how to make baby's clothes,
for there is such . a poor woman with two
little babies somewhere in their vicinity,
and she knows she could make the clothes,
for the babies aren't much larger than her
biggest and best dolly.

to Cardinal Gibbons Thanks to tbe
Archbishops for the Defense
of the Apostolic See.
Baltimobe, March 31. The following
is the letter of Pope Leo XJ.LT., addressed
to His Eminence James, Cardinal Gibbons,
in reply to the letter of the Archbishops of
the United States:
To onr beloved son. Junes, Cardinal Gibbons,
Archbishop of Baltimore:
Beloved son, health and apostolic benedic
tion, Webaveread your Impressive and pow
erful letter of the 30th of December, written in
your own 'name and in that of the other Arch
bishops of the United States. Jt does
honor to you, while It affords us
no little consolation. For nothing could
be more appropriate to the time
or more worthy ot your high office than the
public defense of the liberty ana rights of the
Apostolic See alid the devoted clergy of Italy,
against the attacks of those who, holding forci
ble possession of onr city, endeavor by threats
of punishment to stifle the very voices of those
whose duty it is to proclaim the laws of the
church. And because you have made this de
fense with prudence and vigor, both justice
and religion owe von a debt of gratitude and
this tbo more because your defense has the
merit of constancy.
These striking proofs of your faith and zeal
sene to bind our hearts in closer union, and
inspire us with the pleasing hope that your
words will have weight with those oven who,
though not in communion with us, are at least
unbiased witnesses of the injuries Inflicted
upon us and the church. Moreover, we are
consoled not only because your declarations,
which are in accord with those of the other
dignataries of the church, may win the zealous
support of upright and intelligent men; but we
rejoice especially In this that your pray
ers, united with those of tbe rest
of the faithful, confirms and increases our
confidence in almighty power and ever watch
ful providence of God. Sustained in this
hope, and praying that tbe fullness of heaven
ly gifts may descend upon you, beloved son,
upon the other archbishops of the United
btates, and upon the clergy and faithful en
trusted to your and. their care, we impart to
you and them, as a pledge of our love, tbe ap

3IAEEIED A LUNATIC.
A Yonng Man Weds nn Insane Girl for
israelii, TELEGimM to the DisriTcn.l
Potjghkeefsie, H". Y., March 31. A
short time ago George McCool married
Sarah McCauley. The marriage occurred
in New Jersey, and now Judge Barnard has
issued an order that GeorgeMY. Corwin and
George McCool show cause before the court,
April 6, why an injunction should not be
issued restraining Corwin and McCool from
molesting in any manner or enticing Sarah
away, she being adjudged a lunatic. The
petitioner for the order says that he believes
McCool abducted or induced Sarah to leave
this State and to marry him, and that the
petitioner believes Sarah should be seut to
some public institution as soon as her condi
tion will allow, and that owing to George
Corwin visiting her it is almost Impossible
for petitioner to keep her in a respectable
Sarah McCauley has been before the
courts several times. A relative left her
nearly $3,000, and there have been several
young men after her to marry her, George
McCool distancing the others. There is no
doubt that she is insane, and it is possible
that McCool will be severely punished for
contempt of court in marrying her.
DEIYEN TO JAMAICA GLNGEE.
The Substitutes for Whisky Used In Strictly
Bangor, March 31. In the southwestern
part of Maine, where the Prohibitionists get
in their heaviest work, there are some towns
in which it is difficult to obtain liquor, bnt
people inclined that way manage to get
drunk just the same. In Saccarappa, Cum
berland county, right under the eye of Gen
eral Heal "Dow, the Jamaica ginger business
is booming. One morning recently a resi
dent of that town found 24 empty ginger
bottles in his stable, and then he knew why
there had been so much noise in the neigh
borhood the night before. The bottles all
boretdruggists labels, and smelled villain
ously. A ginger drunk is considered the meanest
kind of a drunk, but in places like Sacca
rappa it is the best the market affords. In
Gorham, the home of that highly moral and
severely temperate granger, ex-Governor
Robie, they have invented some kind ot a
dose, of which burnt sugar and water are
the principal ingredients, that is said to
beat some of the patent medicines all hol
low as a substitute for whisky straight. "We
evidently need a little more law on this
A SATIONiLIST CLUB
Organized at New York for the Keformation
of the World.
New Yoek, March 31. Th!New York
Nationalist Club was organized to-night.
Jonathan Sturgis was elected Chairman,
and "W. C. Semple, Secretary. A declara
tion of principles similar to those of the
parent society in Boston was unanimously
adopted. They begin thus:
The principle of the brotherhood of human
ity is one of the several truths that governs
the world's progress on lines which distinguish
human nature from brute nature. The princi
ple of competition is simply the application of
the brutal law, the survival of the strongest
and most cunning. Therefore, so long as com
petition continues to be tbe ruling faction in
our industrial system, the highest development
of the individual cannot be reached, the
loftiest1 aims of humanity cannot be realized.
The object of the club will be the nation
alization of industry and thereby" the pro
motion of the brotherhood of humanity.

TBACTS TO SOME CHURCH PEOPLE.
John S. Slagle Has Him Arrested, Alleging
THE PEESBtTEEIANS UPHOLD SLAGLE
A man came into this office yesterday
evening. He was a meek and mild-mannered
man, but a pair or earnest brown eyes
showed devotion to a cause, whether wrong
or right. ,
His spectacles were dimmed, perhaps with
tears, or perhaps with the heat of his anger,
for this man was mad; and his face, that
conformed in martyr-like expression with
his eyes, was, a trifle overcast, as if some
thing of the earth earthly had disturbed his
"Well, I have an item for you," he be
gaa, tenderly occupying a cushioned up
holstered chair reserved for the city editor.
"An item, sir, that concerns me. The
other man will have His side printed, I sup-'
pose, and I want to tell mine,"
"My name is Elmer Bryan. I have lived
in Allegheny for years."
"Yes I have. I have been distributing
tracts every Sunday religious tracts,
tracts printed with the best intention in the
world, tracts replete with quotations from
the Bible. Tracts written by a scholor, a
grammarian and a newspaper man."
"Well, I was distnbnting these tracts,
fnll of good solid common sense, on Arch
Btreet this morning, when the Presbyterian
Church let out, and I thought perhaps some
of the members might want to read our
tracts, so I began distributing them."
SOME objection baised.
"It was not well. I had hardly be
gun ere a man with whiskers and a harsh
voice accosted me. He said I should not
be allowed to hand tracts to the people of
the Arch Street First Presbyterian Church
so long as he had anything to say. I told
him Ihad been prosecuting my good work
for years, and he said he would prose
"John S. Slagle."
"I did proceed to distribute the tracts in
a meek and mild way; but he began to talk
loud, and a voung man, his son, I suppose,
said he would help the oldgentleman. Mr.
Slagle then took hold of my arm and led me
not too gently out into the street."
"Then everything. I thought the church
people needed my tracts, and crossed the
alley in order to get away from the church
property, and supposed, from the man's
manner he owned it He followed me,
however, and said his jurisdiction extended
with the people ot his church until they '
reached their homes. I had heard of this
with school children; but with a church
people, never. Well, we paraded up and
down the street, I in the gutter and he on
the curb, interrupting me every time any
one attempted to take one of my religious
tracts.- He threatened to 'send for a police
man, and I said he was saving me the trou
ble. The policeman finally came, and I
was obliged to put up a deposit for a hear
ing Monday morning,"
"Disorderly conduct." v .
HIS FEABFUL CBfSlE.
"Dis-or-der-ly con-duct Just imagine a
mild man like myself being tn any way dis
orderly. Mr. Slagle talked in a harsh and
strident voice, and my answers were meek
and lowly. 1 have been doing this good
work for years, and never before "
"Perhaps Mr. Slagle has another story tp
"Hardly. I am to have a hearing before
Mayor Pearson to-morrow morning, and I
hope he will find nothing criminal in my
being so bold, so forward, so wicked, so de
based, so vile, so disorderly, as to distribute
a few Holy Bible tracts to some church peo
ple." "Perhaps they were incendiary?"
"Incendiary! Are such sentiments as
these disorderly? 'The wages of sin is death.'
'He that doeth the will of God abideth for
ever.' 'He that loveth not his brother
abideth in death.' If they are incendiary,
you may call me a disorderly case, a mis
taken man, a first-class Nihilist Good-day,
sir. Have a tract?"
At the Mayor's office it was learned that
Rev. Charles T. Russell had gone on the
The Church Board of the First Presby
terian Church held a meeting last night
and supported the action of Mr. Slagle in
every respect, and told him to push the case.
The members said they were not averse to
the distribution of the tracts, but they ob
jected to the advertisement on them. They
said they had ordered the man from the
vestibule of the church and from the side
walk, but he had refused to go.
Mayor Pearson will try to solve this re
ligious problem this morning. The ad
vertisement mentioned refers to the Tower

A Jersey Judge's Novel Offer to Settle a
Lawsuit Before Him.
Millville, March 31. A sensational
suit at law between Charles D. Wells, son
of ex-Mayor Wells, and A. J. Steelman,
Journal Clerk ot the State Senate, was tried
in this city yesterday afternoon. Wells
claimed that Steelman promised to pay $122
board for the late Major Wells, who was
confined in the State Insane Asylum pre
vious to his death. Wells swore that Steel
man did not keep his promises.
Ex-Mayor Wells was the Justice before
whom the case was tried, and he became en
raged at Jonrnal Clerk Steelman, and
oflered to pay the bill himself if Steelman
would go into an adjoining room and fight
it out, but Steelman declined.- The jury
brought in a verdict of no cause for action.
Wells appealed to a higher court
