THE DANGER AHEAD OF US.
Not from Native Americans, but from
Those Who Raise the Red Flag of
Washinoton, March 24. In the debate
on Logan's bills to increase the cllicicncy of
the army in the Senate to-day, Mr. Piatt
favored an increase of the army. We
slum Id be in a position to enforce the
Motire doctrine, if necessary. Complica
tions might arise at any time with Can
ada. Mexico or China, and wo should he
pr,.nar(.(i to meet emergencies. .Besides,
there was domestic danger, Mr. Piatt said,
which justified the maintenance of troops.
The danger did not arise from tho honest,
industrious, sober citizens of this country ;

THE CIVIL. SERVICE REPORT.
An Exhibit of Theft Work the Year
Ended January 16 Last.
Washington, March 25. Tho President,
sent to Congress t day tbo third Annual,
report of the Civil Service Commission, together
with the following messnuo:
EXECUTIVE MANSION, March 25, 1886.

this scheme for n reform In the methods
of ailiiitnistcrinK tho (iovernmont is no longer
an exnertnent. Wherever tltiH reform hs
trained a foothold ft has steadil advanced In
tho esteem of lliose charred with public Hd
in i nisi i at ive dui Icm, while t lie people w ho do
Mieuood frovermueut have constantly been
continued in their hiirh estimate of Its vhIuo
and i llicioncy. With the benefits li has al
ready secured to the pubic serv ieo pialnlv
apparent, and with lt promise of Inert a-cd
u-cluhie s easily appreciated, tlnfl cause Is
commended To the liberal caro nnd zealous
protection of the Conpres.
Tho report says applicants have been ex
amined within the year from every State
of the Union nnd from every Territory ex
cept Utah. The w hide number of per
sons exnmined during tlie year has been
7.t'(i-J, o! whom 0.7'J were males and 7W
were females. The whole number thus
far examined since the act was passed
has been 17,4'M. Of those examined a
trifle less than two-thirds succeeded.
The whole number of applications made
during the past year from those exnmined
has boon l,SeJi, each for the probationary
period of six months. If to these we add
'i.L'OD, the number madeduring the previous
eighteen months under the rules, it shows
that 4.170 have been appointed in two
years. Kvery one of t he ex am inn t ions
has been open to all alike, without regard j
to p ilitical or religious opinions.
About 'JJMKl KcpRblionns and 2,(KNl Demo
crats have secured places in tho public
service under the civil service act. Tho re
port states many particulars of tho evils '
that were to be removed, nnd how far
they have been remedied under the new j
system based on free, open competition of J
merit. Political assessments have been in
a considerable measure suppressed, solici
tation and pressure for appointments have
been greatly limited, members of Congress j
bnve been relieved from much annoynnoo,
those administering the Government havo
bad their time much less taxed by office
seekers than formerly, and, consequently,
have much more time for doing the public
work. The ability to dictate appointments
and enforce assessments, which has been the
strength and the profit of partisan manip
ulators and demagogues has, the report
I says, been diminished in the same degree
that faithful study in the schools and good
character nnd reputation in private life
have been encouraged and rewarded. The
report concludes with the statement that
the commission has had nt nil times the
cordial support of the President and his
The Strike at St. Louis.
St. Lor is, March '35. The Governors of
Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas aud Texas
issued proclamations relative to the rail
road strike. The railroads are called upon
to resume tralflc, and all persons are

pledges the whole power of the Stat; to
carry out tho purposes of his proclama
tion. In St. Louis preparations are being
made by the militia to protect the armory

ser.ved an order on all Knights to quit
work at li p. in. This order was coupled
with a request addressed to switchmen who
were not Knights of Labor, asking them to
join their follow workmen and also go out.
How well this order was obeyed and the
request complied w ith was shovn when on

the yardmen in the place quietly walked
out and left the vards deserted.

POWDERLY CRIES HALT!
POWDERLY CRIES HALT! The Hoed of the Knights of Labor
Issues an Order
Issues an Order That is Practically a Condemnation of the
Present Strike—His Resignation
Proffered Unless His Authority
Rt. ln i, March 2V General Vnster
Workman Powdorly has issued n rirculnr
to tho Noble Order of the Knights of La
bor of America, which hns just been made
public. Mr. Powderly instruct the Noo
retnry of each assembly to call a full moot
ing and rond Iwfore it thesentiments which
follow. Tho address opens w ith nn older
to tho assemblies to cease initiating new
members until the relations of capital
nnd labor shall become less strained
than at. the present time, nnd continues:
"To attempt to win concessions rr ga na
with our present raw, undisciplined mem
bership would lie like hurling nti unor-
f nnized mob against a well drilled army,
t is not fair to tho older assemblies to
bring in now members, pick tip their quar
rels as soon ns organized nnd have them
expect peeuifTary aid from those who helped
build the order up for a noble purpose."
After ri well ing nt some lengt h upon the
unadvisabilitv of taking in new members
nt present, tbe nddress continues: "We
must not fritter nway our strength and
miss the opportunity of present success in
tho struggle against ra pit til bv rushing
into useless strikes. To the cardinal prin
ciples of the order we must add another
patience. Yon hnve had patience for years
anil had not the Knightsof Labor appeared
upon the scene you would still bo waiting.
our scales of prices must stand as they
are foi the present- if you can not rnisf
them bv any other process than a strike.
You i n u t submit to in juM ice at the
ha nds of the em plover in patience
for n while longer. Hide well your time.
Find out how much you are justly entitled
to and then the tribunal of arbitration will
softie the rest.'' Mr. Powderly warns the
Knights of Labor that the politician ie
planning night and day how to catch
the Knights of Labor for tho ad
vantage of himself and part v. nnd adds
that to use the name of the order in a
political contest is criminal and mut
not occur again. Referring to the eight
hour movement the circular says: Assem
blies of the Knights of Labor must not
strike foi the eight-hour system on May 1
under the i: ipression that they nre obeying
orders fv m headquarters, for such nn order
has not nnd will not be given. Out of the
tKMKMUNH) people in the United States nnd
Canada our order has possibly ;, 000,000.
Can we mold tho sentiments of the
millions in favor of the short-hour plan
before May H It is nonsense to think ot
it. After speaking of tho quaht ies which
the otlicers of assemblies snould possess,
and expecting the knights to elect honest
men of even temperament, Mr. Powderly
continues: "While 1 write a dispatch is
handed mo in which I read these words:
'They discharged our brother and we
struck; for you know our motto is: An
injury to one is tho concern of all.'
Yes, 'an injury to one is the concern of
all,' but it is not wise to injure all for

properly investigate the matter, bringing
it before every known tribunal, than to
have struck.'1" In conclusion the Master
Workman says : 1 w rite this circular to lay
before the order the exact condition of
-things I am neither physically nor men
tally capable of performing the work re
tjuirod of me. I am w illing to do my part,
but not to be asked to maintain a false posi
tion before the world any longer. (Ino
of two things must take place; eilber tho
local and district assemblies of the order
must obey its laws, or I must be permitted
to resign from a position which, obliges
me to play one part before the public ami
another to our members. I say to the
world that the Knights of Labor do not
approve of or encourage strikes, and iu
one day dispatches come to me from Troy,
i. l., -Manchester, iN. li., Chicago, Cm-
cinnati, Lynchburg, Va., Springfield, ().,

ond Montreal. It is impossible for human
nature to stand the strain any longer. I
must have the assistance of the order or
my most earnest efforts will fail. Will I
havo itf. If so, strikes must be avoided;
boy cot t.s must tie avoided. Those who
boast must bo checked by their assemblies,
no move must be made until the court of
last resort has boon appealed to. Threats
of violence must not be made. Politicians j
must be hushed up or driven out. Obe-
dience to the laws of Knighthood must have j
preference overthose of any other order. If
ti.ese t iihigs are done, the next tivo (
years wili witness th" complete einnneipa- j
tion of mankind f rom the curse of monop
oly. In our members wo require secrecy,
obedience, assistance, patience and cour- !
age. 11 with these aids yon strengthen
my hands, I will continue in the work.
If you do not desire to assist me in this
way. then select a man better qualiiied to
obey 3 our w ill, and 1 will retire in his

Franke. nged forty-two years, living about
two miles from here on a truck farm, yes
terday kindled a fire with coal oil, and
while so doing the flames ignited to the can,
which exploded with terrific force. The
burning od scattered over the body of the
woman and upon her two children, aged
nine and eleven years. The frantic woman
thii into the yard and jumped into a cis
tern at the lower end of the garden and
was drowned. The burning oil set tire to
the house. The tiro was seen by farmers
and they extinguished it. The children
were terribly burned about the face and
