THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 17. Almost
;very industry of importancein the United
rjtates is represented at the Knights of
Labor general assembly now being held in
this cit3r. Miners, iron workers, shoe
men, glass workers, pi inters, street car
men, telegraph operators, clerks and
others are represented on the floor of the
convention by those actively engaged in
the various occupations. Aside from tho
general officers, there are probably not
jnoro than six or eight persons on the floor
of the general assembly who draw regular
pay from tho Knights of Labor. Says
Mrs. A. P. Stevens, of Toledo, "they earn
every cent they get." Until a late hour
last niirht Thos. 13. Barry, and tho com
jnitteo on appeals and grievances were
meeting togethor. .Barry was heard at
length. The committee announced that
the whole matter would be brought up on
tho floor of the convention this morning.
This is one of tho most important appeals
before tho assembly. Its action on this is
considered an indication as to success or
failure of the order. Many delegates ex
press great confidence in the outcome and
intimate full belief in the defeat of Barry.
That gentleman seems to expect a similar
result; ho suggests all manner of terrible
disclosures in case of such result.
Q ho committee on state of order got the
floor ahead of the grievance committee
this morning and the time was devoted to
hearing its reports. On recommendation
5f this committee the treasurer was order
id to pay delegates mileage on tho last
day of tiie session at the rate of 4 cents per
mile each day. In view of a balance of
040.30, reported as being in tho treasury,
Some views hvo been expressed by out
siders there would bo no money on hand
to nay mileage. This morning it was an
nounced that $30,000 had been received by
the treasurer since November 1, and of
tlio amount $335 was from new charters,
t-howing over twenty new assemblies
within about two weeks. Hepresentatives
of the glass men, D. A. 300, announced
that in case of need they had tUOO.OOO from
uhichthe general executive board could
draw as much as needed. D. A. 4S, of
Cincinnati, offered 3,000 as a gift,
nnd others volunteered various sums,
making the aggreeato S150.0CO.
Nearly every delegate tried to make some
offer anil by so doing prove tho falsity of
torta n newspaper stories regarding the
bankrupt condition of the order. Since
this showing the members are jubilant
and are not slow in showing their good
:eelmg. It was further decided that
-unless for good reasons given no member
who loft tor home before the end ot the
convention, would bo entitled to mileage.
A resolution had been introduced to tho
aflect that no action should be taken on
ihe question of immigration restriction.
This was adversely reported after a lively
debate in which the question of foreign
immigration was thoroughly discussed.
Tho committee report was adopted. This
settles this fact that the general assembly
wishes some action taken looking toward
tho restriction of foreign Immigration,
but just what means will bo taken to
bring about such a result cannot be pre
dicted. The committeo on state of order still
had the floor when recess for dinner was
The subscription of money nt today's
session of tho Knights of Labor for the
payment of mileage and other necessary
expenses was an endorsement of the
Powderly administration and the .scene
when it was done was an exhibition of the
general master workman's ability to take
prompt advantage of the first chanco to
test the fidelity of delegates to him. When
it appeared that mo-e money than was in
tho treasury was needed 13. A. 300. the
Pittsburg glass workers, placed the con
tents of its treasury, amountiuc to 100,
000, at tho disposal of the order and
handed in 3,000 for immediate use. Mr.
Powderly took advantage of the opening
thus mado and called on those who wanted
to help to stand up. A majority of dele
gates arose aud quickly announced the
money they would give, tho amount
reaching $-150,000. As has been already
stated this is a practical endoremeut and
expression of confidence iu this adminis
tration, which indicates that tho present
gfiieral master workman's advice will bo
taken and ho will be urced to remain in
otlice. It means thnt Mr. Powderlv has
tho support, of tho majority although
the minority is till awake
jvml actively opposing '"m. Thev
have been acting q i t!y pend
ing action on appeal o.ses bj the
proper committee aud the general assem
bly. Last night's session of that commit
teo was brief, both Barrv and Powderlv
leiug present. But Utile debate was in
dulged in. The report has been expected
at auy hour and the Barry case in partic
ular, has been hanging over the general
assembly all week as a menace. A major
ity of tho delegates were evidently with
Pbwderly in the case but tho minoritv
proposed to make it warm for them and
they have been somewhat worried over
After the financial boom that struck the
nssemblv today there was less fear as to
the result of adverse action in the Barrv
i ase. Action in the case of D. A. 49 o"f
New York is also counted risky. The
outsiders in that case have allied them
selves with Barry and aro announcing
with him, that action adverse to their
appeal will bring down all the terrors
of their wrath upon the Knights of Labor.
The uncertain strength of those outside
elements make it difficult to appreciate the
importance of their defeat, which will
probably be effected. Thev claim a large
following, but the Powderlv crowd assert
ed that it was neither a large or desirable
clas of peoplo who would follow Barry
ind his friends. The whole matter seems
llu be a fight for leadership, iu which, the 1
cool, careful mind of T. V. Powderlv con
trols and directs the movements of the
side which has won the Barry case and
will win others as they come up.
This case was the second matter consid
ered at the afternoon session. First came
an address by a representative of the
Woinans Christian Temperance Union
and the committee on- appeals and griev
ances then got the attention of the general
assembly aud reported the .celebrated
Thomas B. Barry, of Michigan, a mem
ber of the g6neral executive board was ex
pelled from the order by that board for
circulating vilmying reports about the or
der and members. Barry claimed
in various interviews 'and notably
in his speech last spring in
tho Cooper union in New York that T. V.
Powderly and his close advisers were ex
travagant and corrunt and by their mis
management were fast destroying the
Knights of Labor as an organization. The
other members of the board expelled
Barry from the order, and as he claimed
that he had not been given a fair frial
according to the laws of the order, an
appeal was taken from the decision of the
board. This appeal came from an assem
bly at Dayton" O., through L. S. Doschf,
and was made by that asseniblyjbecause of
Barry's claim of unfair treatment as has
been already said. The matter was under
consideration by the grievance committee
last Bight and by unanimous vote they
decided in favor of the general executive
board. Their report was made to the
general assembly this afternoon and
the debate then began. Al
though not, strictly speaking, a fol
lower of Barry, Geo. Schilling, of Chi
cago, took the floor in his behalf and made
a short speech in favor of the expelled
member. He took the side of Barry for
constitutional reasons and argued the
matter very strongly, bringing up point
after point of the law to show why Barry
was not legally expelled. These points
were given in tho appeal published in theso
dispatches from Barry earlier in the weet.
GeneralMaster Workman Powderly resign
ed the chair to Secretary Elliott, of the
grievance committee, and made a careful
statement of his side of the case. The re
port of the committee included tho pro
ceedings of the board on the case and also
Barry's Cooper Union speech, and Pow-
aenys remarKs inciuueu a review ot tne
whole business. His chief points on the
matter were the same as those mado
in his annual address and need not be
repeated. Hugh Cavenaugh, of Cincinnati,
and many other able speakersjgfollowed
and the debate was at times rather warm,
but for the most part in good temper.
At the end of the debate thoroll was
called and the general executive board was
sustained by a vote of 122 "to 24. It is
claimed b3r various delegates that thoso
figures do not exactly represent the rela
tive strength of the Barry and Powderly
forces for "of the 24" they say "not more
than half a dozen are actually Barry's
close friends." Others place the number at
three and all agree that many voted
against the board, for legal reasons and
would support Powderly on any question
This matter being settled and abundant
means being at the service of the order tho
delegates tonight are feeling 100 per cent
better than early iu the week. It
is clearly seen that Powderly is
growing stronger hourly and will
probably meet with little opposition
from inside tho ceneral assembly. Dark
hints are dropped, however, by members of
the order of some cases not yet mentioned
iu the press which will cause more of a stir
than anything yet developed. This comes
from close friends of Powderly and just
what it will prove to be can not be imag
ined by outsiders.
Mr. Barry was seen this evening and
asked for his opinion of tho action of tho
general assembly. He replied: "I am sur
prised at the action of the general assem
bl. I am at a loss to understand how men
could act in that cowardly aud unmanly
manner. I have made charges against the
general officers. All charges that 1 made
were proved at tho general assembly at
Minneapolis, and I am prepared to prove
every statement I have made relative to
their doings. They dare not meet me be
fore the representatives of oppressed labor.
There is but one trial court in the Knights
of Labor, tnat being the court of the local
assembly in which tho accused holds mem
bership. I have had no trial or opportu
nity to defend myself. Now that I have
been denied a hearing I shall tako my case
to the high court of public opinion, and
believe when the truth is known that the
niea who control tho Knights of Labor
today and aro living at the expense of pov
erty will be considered the most lntamous
scoundrels that ever lived and have become
a stench in the nostrils of honest men.
I hnvo been for twenty-two years a
trade unionist and a Knight of Labor
and never had as much dirt as a fly speck
on my card. I appreciate my position of
being expelled for exposing their rascality.
This is all I shall say at present. From
now on the people may expect to hear
from mo daily uutil I shall havo placed
theso men in their true light before the
Mr. Barry has a long statement of his
case which he promises to give to the pub
lic later. It is said to be a detailed and
very sensational statement of what he lias
been charging against the general officers
of the order.
THE LXGLISII CONSPIRACY.
Fitzgerald Arraigns the British for Perse
cution of Parnell.
EgLlNCOLN, Neb., Nov. 17. President Fitz
gerald has issued a circular to the various
branches of the Irish national league of
America, in which ho says: "The foulest
conspiracy known to British history since
the days of Titus Oates have been entered
into by the present government of England,
undercover of the London Times (newspa
per), for the purpose of thwarting the ef
forts of Mr. Parnell and his colleagues to
secure by constitutional agitation tho
legislative rights of the Irish peo
ple. Failing by dvery other device
known to tyrant and oppressor to repress
the aspirations of men who are struggling
for liberty and already begin to breathe its
atmosphere, this Tory government, beaten
in its role of the tiger, now descends to the
slimy methods of the serpent. Salisbury
and his cabinet have stooped to employ
knaves, forgers, perjurors aud outcasts of
society to foreswear tho characters of the
Irish leaders and thus drive them from
public life, hoping thereby to force
the Irish people to adopt as
their only alternative the policy
of violence nnd dispair a policy
which, in Ireland's poverty and helpless
ness, could only end in her destruction.
Baffled at every point of its ignoble and
malicious course, tho Salisbury cabinet is
now striving to keep back the damning
evidence held by the Irish leaders by pro
longing and extending the commission
aud consequently increasing the enormous
cost in the hope of compelling Mr. Par
nell to abandon the case for want of funds
to meet heavy expenditures forced upon
him aud his friends."
Tho circular concludes with an earnest
appeal for subscriptions to the Parnell
A HORROR SOON FORGOTTEN.
St. Paul., Minn., Nov, 17. Tho Pioneer
Press learns that at Yankton, D. T.,
Trustees Quigley nnd Woolley today re
signed from membership of the insane
asylum board. Woolley also formally pre
sented his resignation as secretary. The
cause of these resignations was the conclu

additions to tho asylum after the same
plans and methods employed prior to the

A W0M)EEFUL GAIS.
Figures Showing the Republicans Gained
17,000 in Indiana.
Indianapolis, Nov. 17. A clerical omis
sion of 2,800 Republican votes was made
in the aggregate congressional vote as
first announced yesterday. The total con
gressional vote was 535,777, divided as fol
lows: Republican 2&i,556, Democrat 259,
965, Prohibition 9,252, Labor Union 2,001
Republican plurality 4,571. The Prohibi
tion vote of Indiana in 18S4 was 3,028 and
iu 1SS0 it was 4,046. The large Prohibition
vote in the late election is a matter of
general surprise to many of the best
posted politicians of both sides. Hon. S.
N. Chambers, of Vincennes, one of the
prominent Republicans of southern In
diana and delegate to the Chicago conven
tion, in an interview this evening upon
this point pertinently expresses the views
of a large number of Republicans
wheu he says: "I was apprehensive
about the result in Indiana, knowing well
the great odds that the Republicans had
to overcome.;If I had believed that the Pro
hibition vote would have been near 10.C03
it would have left no doubt in my mind
that we were defeated. Of the 10,000 Pro
hibition votes I believe that nearly 8,000
of them came from the Republican party.
There are not many people who appreciate
what a great victory we have achieved
with 8.000 Republican votes cast for the
Prohibition ticket with a Democratic plur
ality of 0,500 to overcome and with a Re
publican plurality of 2,500, we made a
gain, it may be seen, of about 17,000 over
fonr years ago. This victory was achieved,
too, in the face of a desparato fight by the
Democrats and on an eastern issue. I think
NO BARGAIN WANTED
Charleston, S. C, Nov. 17. Several
days ago the views of a prominent Charles
ton Democrat were telegraphed all over
the country to indicate that there was a
revolt here against the national Democ
racy, because of the defection of Tammany
hall and the County Democracy. He ad
vised the holding of a convention in the
southern states to bargain with Republi
cans it they would only assure to the south
the right to manage its home affairs in its
own way. The proposition caused indig
nation among Democrats, who are such
from principle, and not from spoils of of
fice. The News and Courier today de
nounced this proposition as strictly mer
cenary, and said there are persons many
persons perhaps who have been
Democrats" from necessity rather
than from choice. but those
persons are utterly mistaken if they sup
pose that southern people are weary of
Democratic principles, or tired of Demo
cratic rule. Persons who have figured as
Democrats cannot breakup the solid south
by treating Democrats of tho southern
states as men who are for sale or for hire.
Such talk as we allude to would be whim
sical if it were not intended to bo mis
chevious. The Democratic party in the
southern states may lose some members,
but will gain more than it will lose. They
who remain, they who believe iu demo
cratic principles as the only safeguard,
will stand together more firmly than ever
before. They are not fools or knaves and
tho votes of states cannot be knocked down
to the highest bidder.
THE ELGIN SENSATION DENIED.
CniCAGO, Nov. 17. A sensational story
was printed this morning from Elgin, 111,,
tending to connect a crazy man named
George Hutchinson, a former patient at
the Elgin hospital for the insane, with the
Londou Whitechapel butcheries, which
have horrified the world. The story was
to the effect that Hutchison had escaped
from the Elgin hospital, had been recap
tured and sent to the Kan
kakee hospital, and escaping from
there had come to Chicago aud
murdered a woman of tho clas3 to which
belonged the victims of the Whitechapel
murderer. He was again arrested, so goes
the story and returned to tho Kankakee
hospital, from which he afterwards escap
ed having now been four years at large.
The detectives of tho Chicago police de
partment have no knowledge of the per
petration of a crimo such as the one
described, and -have no record or photo
graph of a man named Geo. Hutchin
son. Lieuteant Elliot, when seen
this morning, said: "I don't think thero
can be anything in the story. I do not re
member any such case or any record of it.
There is no picture in the rogues' gallery
to my knowledge of any man named
Hutchinson, and I never heard of any mur
der under the circumstances named. How
ever, if there is any truth iu the story, it
might proye a good clue to the identity of
tho Whitechapel murderer. We will look
A BIG RATIFICATION.
Hutchinson, Kan., Nov. 17. In spite "of
snow and a slow drizzling rain which
lasted all day, the Harrison and Morton
barbecuo aud jollification today was a
success. Several Democrats dressed in
outlandish garbs wheeled jubilant Repub
licans through the streets to satisfy curi
ous wagers. The McPhersou Flambeau
club and baud, the Nickerson band and
all the bauds aud drum corps of Hutchin
son were on the street last night. The
weather was disagreeable but 10,000 citi
zens and visitors lined the sidewalks. No
such a display of fireworks was ever made
before in tnis city. Curiously decorated
wagons and other vehicles were drawn
through tho streets by horses which were
completely covered with flags and bunting.
During the early hours of the morning
enthusiastic young Republicans placed
the figures 544 aud 239 upon the window
glass of every business house in the city.
These figures represented Harrison's vote
at the Chicago convention and in the elec
toral college. Lieutenant-Governor-Elect
A. J. Felt was the principal orator and de
livered arousing speech which was greeted
with the wildest enthusiasm. The drap
ing of the postoffice in mourning caused
much merriment. Tho best of order pre
vailed and tho crowds on the streets and
out at tho barbecue grounds were esti
mated at 12,000 to 1S.00O.
Someone has declared conceit worse than
consumption, and the comparison is a true
one. Many are the "conceited" who cry
down legitimate remedied, and who delude
suffering humanity, whose only salvation
is the immediate use of Dr. Bull's Cough
"He jests at scars who never felt a
wound." and a man may stand with his
bauds iu his pockets nnd laugh at poor,
worn rheumatic, but if he is a gentleman,
he'll step into a drmr store and buy him a
bottle ot Salvation Oil for 25 cents.

Indianapolis. Nov. 17. The big ratifi
