The Provisional Committee ul Hit

aro makin-.' a demand for a national con?
vention of the Knights of Labor in order
to reconstruct tbe organization of the
Order, nut! abrogate eenuin features of
the Order that an claimed to be tyranni?
cal and wrong.
Thc committee claim that lhere is no
Uso in appealing to the Genera1, Executive

the central sources of power which vi liku
are accused "of Biinppiopilalluu of

This Executive Board can control the
Treasury without being responsible for
the funds, and directs tho whole ma?
chinery of Ibu Order without consulting
the popular will. This all agrees wilb
what we said long ago would bo tbe
logical results of arbitrary management,
and the subservience of one interest bi
another when there is uo similarity
betwecu the taro, or, in other words, the
folly of making 10,000 aaa iu the ^\rest

800 men in New York.
That is wicked and satirical in the
New York Timi* to say that it is pos?
sible that Governor Fi rakel bcliev.-s the
figures to bc one, t whiih he puts forth
lu a partisan lamer.t over thc waning
fate of Ohio wool.
The Governor ais lhat tbe reduction
of thc taiilT on wool lia* already caused
a loss to bis State of 14,000,000.
The truth is that only the od
duty was taken off, but the price of wool
lias since fallen enough to bring up the
duty to almost exactly Ita former figures,
&6.i.'8 per cent, on clothing wools in 1883
and 50 10 per cent, in 1S"<6. For the four
yeats lyisl to 1060, inclusive, there wai
llC.TTi.COO worth of clothing wool im?
ported at an average duty of 05 per cent.
b tho following Inn years the imports
were |lfl?77,000(oi 1000,000 less) at an
average duty of nearly 51 per cent. Ob?
viously the trilling decrease of duty pro?
duced uo laciaaaed imports, aud had
nothing to do arith thc falling oil of thc
number or Um value of sheep in Ohio.
A citizen of Michigan explains that
tbe State is ridden to death by the pro?
tection tax on lumber which encourages
the wholesale destruction of forests, and
puts eveiy tort of lumber a third or
toore above the just price, when hy thi'
lumber barons "get n h quick" by the
process of forcing tho people la pav
them a premium and a tribute.
ile Hates also that tho "protection of
American labor pica is a fraud, because
the laborers come over from Canada
during thu working season aud go back
nitb thc money they have made.
Tbe writer 1* a well -known ciiizeu ol
bis State, highly respected for bil abiliiv
and bis character. "Michigan," hu says
"is a tariff-cursed State ; ind if the farm

Insist upon some relief."

Tht) immediate effects of that Net

Nevertheless, when he returns lhere is
a look of serene satisfaction on his face.
All this is a routine that has no fun in

But it is thc "boys" thal thc resolution

A philosopher has said that there is
"a tonic in failure" that serves to Bpni
strong men to better effort. And it
may bo said with equal truth of that
same headache that in the pallid dawn of
a new year vases up the individual to
iemind him of lost and misspent days.
If he is a weak intn he takes a cocktail,
and tries in its roseate reflection
to conjure up hope out of
chance or luck. But if he is g
strong man he will not fail to relied on
the past, and mould a strong resolution
out of ilslesson, forever wise and watch?
ful nature at that moment of punishm- nt
that she inflicts, makes the heart purer
and the mind clearer, while she puts the
penitent on thc rack. And it is just Hutt
hour that may make or mar the average
man who takes pleasure in the intervals
of work and generally too much of it
Colonel Fellows has turned out to ba

He said in a speech on Monday that
he "should have one single purpose, and
that was to make New York city un?

trust and. would execute it in the in?
terest of ihe people.
The last vear has not been a pleasant
one for Wall atreet men. On ihe con.
trary, there is a widespread Beedina ol
gloom among the brokers, caused by a
combination of heavy expenses and anal]
receipts. They have been whistling foi

and one of the tunes that they have re
lied on for that purpose has been a sons
to tho effect that all the Vanderbilt roads
proposed to declare increased dividends

Women ore the best dressed ami the most

They do not grudge a good price to those
who prepare their triumphs for them.
