There was a time, and not fo very long
ago, that when persons were attacked with
klduey disease, and hccause thoroughly
convinced or it, a scums of mingled stu
gi.ish and honor quickly crept over them.
Tijey knew the perilous position it placed
them in. Bright.s disease, with all its
lienors, stared them in the face. Horrible
visions came to them even in sleep ot the
dreadful ordeal they were to pass through,
and many would have welcomed death at
the start, once the diagnosis Miade it
absolutely certain that they were afflicted
with this disease.
How different today are their feelings,

In no city in the United States, possi
bly in no place in the world, has organized
labor had more ups nnd downs than right
here in Washington.
In the early days organlz.ed for mutual
benefit and protection and the advance
ment of their .interests, the betterment
of their condition Individually and collec
tively, the organizations of workmen
of the different traaes were separate and
distinct, the members of each craft tak
ing care of Its own. This plan worked
well so well, in fact, that It led to the
joining together of all labor bodies of any
one craft under a national head. The
success of tills plan of increasing the
power and influence of one trade led to
the formation of national unions of others,
and so on, until every craft was organized
through the different grades, rrom the
original local to the national union.
Seeing the benefits of these national
unions to the laborers of the various trades
the leaders conceived the idea of banding
together these Into one great organization,
comprising tho workmen of every trade
and calling. The object was to strengthen
by co-operation, and instead of having each
trade to combatits oppressors single hand
ed, in time of trouble, to lend It the power
and Influence of the whole body of organ
ized wage-earners, no matter to what trade
or calling they belonged. This plan worked
well and It was not until the leaders be
gan to quarrel among themselves did the
rank and flic of the working classes lose
the prestige they had gained. Discord took
the place of harmony and partisanship
made those who had for years been or
ganized as brothers, working for a mutual
good, the bittercstenemleB. In the efforts
to regain the power they lost, their every
move was not so much to benefit them
selves individually, as to injure those
whom they failed to govern.
No better example of the evil results of
Internal dissension can be cited than the
division of the once grand and powerful
organization of carpenters in tills city
Into four separate and distinct bodies.
In the early part of 1881 the carpenters
of Washington tformed an independent or
ganization, the only objects of which were
shoiter hours of labor and better wages.
This simple and natural platform com
mended itself to every hatchet and saw
artist in the Dlfcttict. The membership of
the association increased rapidly, and in
a little more than a year it is laid that
over 00 caipenters were eniolled as mem
bers. In 1S2 the lecal organisation con
nected itself with the NaUoual Brother
hood of Carpenters, under the name of
Carpenters' Union, No. 1, Mr- David Gregg
The policy of Union No. 1 was always
regarded as conservative and the indi
vidual members broad-minded, ready to
make any sacrifice to uphold the prin
ciples of their motto "United to piotect;,
not combined to injure."
The methods of the National Brother
hood of Carpenters, however, were not In
keeping with the ideas of the members of
local unioa No. 1. So, after remaining in
the national body about a year, they with
drew and again formedan independent or
ganization, which btill exists, with Mr.
Thomas F. McGee as president.
About this time the order of the Knights
of Labor wasgalnlnga very firm foothold
In the District, and dissensions among the
members of the independent union resulted
in the withdrawal of a large number, who
organized local assembly 17-18, K- of L.
It would be supposed that a severance of
this kind would have resulted in peace
and satisfaction among the members of the
separate organisations. This, however,
was not the case, for, as the result showed,
there were still a few dissatisfied mem
bers In each Of the organizations of car
penters. "When noses were counted it was
found that the obstructed numbered thir
teen. These combined to form a new or
ganization, nnd after much trouble suc
ceeded in organizing local union No. 190,
Brotherhood of Joiners and Carpenters of
The severance of the "thirteen" from
Union No. 1 , however, caused a great stir
in the labor world and also resulted in a
suit at law In the civil courts for a division
of the funds ot the union. The result of
this was of very lltttlc importance com
pared with the conclusions reached in re
gard to the individual members charged
with an attempt to disrupt Union No. 1.
These were, it is said, tried by a board of
inquiry, on the findings of which the Na
tional Union ordered that several of the
archconppirators should be expelled; one, a
degree less guilty, to be suspended for the
term of ninety-nine years, and the others
were fined sums ranging from $25 to
That being conceded, It Is well to con
sider what the military arm of Turkey
amounts to otherwise. Since the late
war with Russia, 1877-8, the Turkish army
has been reorganized by Gerriian office::,
but results of the movement have been
more or less minimized by the corruption
and carelessness of Mohammedan adminis
trative methods and practices. Neverthe
less, the Turks will fight, and eagerly
hug death in defense of their caliph and
faith. The experience of the Russo-Turklsh
war teaches that they are among the
best troops to be found for defensive
operations; but as an invading force they
are comparatively weak. They would
be especially to in a hostile country like
Macedonia, where all conditions of topog
raphy, communications, a notoriously de
fective commissariat, and indifferent, in
ferior officers would be against them.
The be6t opinion would seem to be
that, in hostilities between Greece and
Turkey, should the theater of war he
confined to Thessaly and Macedonia, the
Greek army, at least, would have an even
chance, while. If Servla and Bulgaria were
to attack the Turks in flank and rear, and
the warlike hordes of the provinces help the
Greeks, the position of the Turks scon
must become untenable. This, of courfe, is
arguing upon premises which do not in
clude the operations of other war powers. 1
From any professional point of view, the
situation In the East, in the event of
actual war, would present the most in
teresting picture and study to the soldier
and the military critic that have been in
sight for many a long year.
Thcfourth organization ,the Amalgamated
Society of Carpenters, Is also an Inde
pendent body. It has branches both in
thiscountry and Euiope.with headquarters
atManchcstcr.England. Thcreis, however,
a branch headquarters, located In New
York, for the convenience of the societies
scattered all over the United States. The
boast of the society is Its beneficial features.
Besides the tegular assessment sfor the
special purpose, all surplus money goes
Into a fclnking fund, for the pensioning of
Its old and incapacitated members. An
other admirable feature of the benefit
system Is the payment for all working
tools stolen from members or destroyed
by fire. An "out-of-work" fund is also
maintained, so that when any of the mem
bers arc eo unfortunate as to be unable to
find employment they are given a weekly
allowance equal to Jialf pay.
This fund, however, is seldom drawn on,

TO FOUND A NEGRO CITY.
A Colored 3Inn'n Scheme to Helia
bllttiUe Georgia Uoom Town.
One o the most novel negro colonization
schemes yet sprung has oiiglnated right
here in Atlanta. The person at the head
of It is no other thun the well-known
barber, politician and military captain,
Moses Bentley. Fentley has his plans well
under way, and he will not take his immi
grants to any far-away place in Africa
or Libeiin, but will settle them in Georgia
nnd will do so at a small cost to those
Beutley's scheme is unique In the fact
that he will found a city exclusively for
the negro. He is to have the entire gov
ernment conducted by the people of his
own race a negro mayor nnd negro coun
cilinen, negro policemen, end, in fact, as
there are to be no white people living
within the city limits, every officeholder
will be a negro- Then the laws are to be
the work of negro mental labor.
This scheme of .Hentlcy's Is doubly In
teresting, as he contemplates lcsurrect
ing an old "Deserted Village,'' tc-estab-lishlng
a city which once flourished
nearly a hundred years ago, and which
has literally been wiped off the face of
the map. This was Sunbury, the city
which was located on the Sunbury River,
at its mouth, in Liberty county, and on
the seacoast. In the year 1800 Sunbury
was a south Georgia "boom town,'' and
it quickly sprang into popularity, all the
wealthy planters of that section going
there and building beautiful homes. In
1S20 Sunbury had some ten or fifteen
thousand inhabitants, and was consid
ered a model city. Ships came into Its
harbor, and it was regarded a commer
cial center of no mean proportions. Hut
suddenly Sunbury began to decline. It
was sickly on account of malaria, and
the people fled from the city as If a
plague had stricken the city. In a few
years the rity was almost deserted, And
now only three or four huts mark the
spot where once It flourished.
Uentlcy Is to build his model negri
city on the Kite of old Sunbury. lie has
ascertained that while the white people
cannot stand the malaria of that dis
trict, the miasma has no ill effects upon
negroes. The land is lich, and can be
bought cheap. It can be made a ship
ping point for the pioducts of the coun
try for many miles around. Bentley has
recorded all these points.
"Yes," he said, "1 have my plans well
under way. 1 have written to tlue par
ties owning the land where old Sunbury
was once located, and 1 expect, to hear
from them In a few days. This is no
wildcat scheme. I mean business, and
I already see the money in sight for the
preliminary work. I have had this In
my mind for several years. I wish to
show the world what the negro of the
South can. do toward self-government.
I want to say right hcie that we will
have no worthless negroes- in our new
city. They have got to be industrious
and ot good character. I expect to have
a city of 5.G00 people In two jears from
Uniforms for Diplomats. .
"Why, asks Col. Frank Carpenter, should
Secretary Sherman not inaugurate a new
costume for our ministers? Mr. Sherman
once appeared before Napoleon III In kuee
breeches. Ue wore an evening suit, knee
pants, black silk stockings, and pumps,
and he says in his book that it seemed very
awkward at first, until he saw that all the
other parties at the reception were dressed
as he was. Clifton R. Breckinridge, our
present minister to St. Petersburg, appeared
at the court of the czar ,wlth his shapely
shins clad in silk stockings. Vow, in thete
days of bicycle suits there is no reason why
some such dress might not be adopted "as
the ordinary dress of the American citizen."
It was so in the past. "When John Adams
was presented to King George III he wore
a coat embroidered Avith lace, his fat calves
were clad In silk stockings and his shoes
were ornamented with silver buckles. Ben
jamin Franklin at his presentation to the
Kiug of France wore a plain suit of black
velvet, with, black velvet knee breeches,
while stockings and black shoes. He had
intended to wear a wig, butwhen itarrived
the hairdresser could not squeeze it upon
Franklin's big head. The man worked and
stretched, and- Franklin finally told him
that the wig was not large enough, where
upon the French hairdresser angrily threw
It upon the floor, saying: "Monsieur, that
Is impossible. It is not the wig which is
too small; It is the head which is too large."
Looking Out lor Counterfeiters.
New York, March 13. A clever band
of counterfeiters ot 20 Bank of England
notes are now said to be on their way
to the United States, and it is believed
that they contemplate operating in. the
larger cities of this country. The Pinker
ton detective agency ot this city has been
notified by tho London officials.
Tlie World of business
"Wall street felt better during the short
eesslon yesterday than at any time for
over a month past. iThennarket was ani
mated and firm during" tjie whole session,
andthe prices were the highest of the week.
Aside from this very pleasant fact of
advancing prices, there 'is also to he noted
the important fact thafrcohiniisslou buying
was fairly active all duy y6nterday. Really
the amount of outside speculation is in
creasing. On the otier hand there was
unquestionably big realizing yesterday.
There are a good many brokers who are
looking now tor the real strong steady
advance lu the stock market that we have
all been hoping for so long and not getting.
Conditions are certainly favorable , or many
of them are. On the whole, however, the
advancing prices during this last week
have been mostly the manipulations of the
profcsslonaT brokers and traders and the
public Is not yet in the market sufficiently
to prevent this manipulation. Not all of
the brokers are bulls by any means, and
not all are looking for a continuance of this
week's rise tomorrow. One or two shicwd
traders told me la.sfc night that they expect
there will be a big' disposition to take
profits tomorrow morning if theie is a
strong opening. The papers arc all talk
ingbulllahnnd will today be almost, without
exception, predicting that the McKinley
boom has arrived. Itisinauch asituatlon
as this that the insiders spill out for a
Congress will meet tomorrow, and Its
opening is expected to have a bear effect
by a good many. Those who nre making
a study of sugar suggest that the talk
incident to the opening of Congress about
the sugar schedule will most surelygbear
down the price of sugar two or three
points. The remainder of the market is
usually somewhat sympathetic with this
The Vanderbiits were again the feature
of the trading yesterday, and the rumor
that a new combination has been formed
to bull them Is again asserted. The
Vanderbilt boys, "NV. K. and Fred, are
likely to be. seen on the street again, one
hears. The professional bulls extended
their lines in the Vanderbiits and the
Omaha leads the Grangers, and It is the
general opinion among friends of this
stock that It will certainly sell much
higher. In the end this Miould certainly
be so, as has been pointed out in this
column, as the toad is in a pioj-perous
condition and is better able to pay its
dividend than many others whefco piiccs
are away above Omnlui's present figures.
But theie aic those who expect a teactlou
In Omaha in the immediate future, a

Manhattan cannot bejilisguiscMl. The reduc
tion of the dividend was of courfe a wise
move when the foniier dividend was not
being earned, but tile fact that the divi
dend was reduced to 4 per cent a year
should certainly not; innverilately iuspiie
speculators to puichath Manhattan In large
blocks witli the expectation of big prcllts.
Four per cent Is ncijrerthe real earning

Manhattan is on therowirwnrd ginde. Its

Rubber is taking a-, bad, tumble. It con
tinued on its dovnward"icpurse yesterday,

closing at 65. One does not hear what
particular trouble the rubber company Is
In at the momei-t, but, the general con
dition of the company Is sufficient to ac
count for any drop.
People who have been bearish on the
rest of the market all along have been
bullish on the New York Central ever
since the Lake Shore funding scheme was
announced. The stock was up to 99 1-2
yesterday. Shrewd traders arc still feel
ing good about the prospects of the road
and further advance in the stock.
I hear that Mr. George W. Silsby has
under advisement a partial change hi tho
nature or his business. He may, I under
stand, somewhat do away with his room
trading, establishing a private banking
business and doing a commission stock
brokerage husinesB only for those having
accounts with him. This column does not
care what you do, Mr. Silbsy. It feels
Bunl that anything you attempt will be
suouessful, eminently so, and that, more-
(ver, It will he gracefully done and
emoothly as well as successfully.
I understand that the pressure Is becom
ing too great with some of the local
brokers, and that the next week or two
will show quite a weeding out ortlie weaker
members of the fraternity. The fact ot
the matter is that there is perhaps busi
ness for fifteen brokers here in Washing
ton when speculation Is brisk. The num
ber ot firms having signs out at present
is nearer thirty. This cutting up of the
business means that hardly anyone is mak
ing good profits this spring, nnd that a
great many are dropping their money ev
erv week and every day.
This problem ot winning in thestock mar
ket is a most difficult one. Your trader
who has been going against the market
for months and always losing, when he
gets down pretty nearly to the bGttom of
his pile, fancies that it he bucks on the
other side he will be as sure to win as
he was to lose at first, but there Is an
error In this proposition, as too many of
the little sharps about town have learned.
Gurley & Banoss arc feeling gratified,
they tell me, at the amount of business
they are doiuK since they made their con
nection with Hunter, Cooper & Co. The
New York rirm is an excellent one, and. In
fact, there Is no onO 'op the street who
can boast of better correspondents.
Brokers ot the local market are opti
mists just at present:'; They, arc expect
ing, with a great inany others, in the
first place that Washington is to have
a fine spring in a business way. xney

2t seems impossible for many people
to believe that-the furniture instalment
plan can be made to help the pur
cJiaser and protect his interests at
every point We do it, and take
pleasure in doing it, because our vol
ume of business is so largi. We our
selves pay on the instalment plan.
Why shouldn't me also give credit to
our customers and never worry them
as our icholesalers never worry us.
