cipal one being the system of representation.
The changes suggested fixes the repre

Several minor changes were also sug

of about one-half of the sections the matter

Delegates from the street car union re

"With the exception of the Barbers, and
BaTiers' Drivers, every assembly In this
jurisdiction was represented at the Dis
trict Assembly meeting last Thursday
night. The meeting was called to order
by the "Worthy Foreman Michael Cuff, but
Master "Workman Simmons took charge of
the meeting after the opening ceremonies
had been concluded.
The master "workman read a letter
from Cleveland, Ohio, which stated that
the Tin and Sheet Iron "Workers Union had
disbanded, andthecraftwasnow organizing
under the Knights of Labor.
The master workman also read a letter
from the Clevelaud laundry workers for
the encouragement of the movement to
organize the laundry employes In this city.
The letter stated that the laundry girls
iu Cleveland had seen their wages reduced
and hours of labor Increased to such an ex
tent that they realized that they were fast
drifting Into mere human money-making
machines for the benefit of their employ
ers. Determined to be free, tbey bad

very encouraging and tho writers assured
the executive board that their efforts
were strictly in accord with the aims of
organized labor to better the conation
of the working classes.
Under good of tho order the delegates
were requested to attend the Vrooman lec
tures, also to alter tho address of Harry
Davis, esq., next "Wednesday night on
single tax at Masonic Temple.
The attention of tho delegates was called
to what seems to be a clearviolation of tho
eight-hour law, which is that of giving out
by contract the repairs of tho DiBtrlct ve
hicles, to contractors who work their em
ployes not lees than nine hours per day.
-It was tho opinion of the delegates that the
eight-hour law was intended to coverall
Government work, no mat'or whether it
was the contract to repair wagons or the
contract to baild a school house. The matter
was referred to tho committee on eight
hour violations for investigation.
Anotfierease of opeifviolationof the law,
In pavement laying in the District, was re
ported and referred to the committee for in
vestigation. The committee on eight-hour violations
reported the charge of violating the law on
the aqueduct bridge had been thoroughly
investigated, the committee had positive
proof of tuo.YiolaUon.by actual observation
having watched the job for twelve hourain
succession, in addition to this the testimony
of a number of tho omployes was had who
were willing and ready to swear to their
statements as made, -that they were com
pelled by the contractors to work twelve
hours per day. The comraltteo desired to
to future actions. The question was debated
at length by tho delegates, the general
sentiment was, however, that the present
case would not be a good one on which to
test the law. The committee was Instructed
to use every effort to secure the enforce
ment of the law in tho futuro which was
thought would be done it the officers were
The master workman called the attention
of the delegates to the appeal of District
Assembly No. 75, of Brooklyn, N. Y., in
behalf of the unfortunate victims of the
lato railway strike in that city. While
the strike is overpaid the master workman,
much remains to be done. Many of the mem
bers of the order havo been blacklisted for
taking part in the strike, others who by
slight acts of indiscretion have placed
themselves w Ithin the grasp of the law and
havo been indicted for offenses, which in
ordinary times would have been overlooked.
The maBter workman then suggested that
a sum bo appropriated. Acting on the
Euggcstign pttbe master workman, the sum
of 250 was ordered to tie sent in response
to the appeal.
The propriety and benefits of using union
labels on the products of union labor was
then considered. During the debate infor
mation was asked why the bakers did ijot
have ajabelonunionmade bread. The reply
to this was that the lakers favored the
label, but thaVbread buyers did not, owing
to a misconception on their part as to how
tho label was applied. The general suppo
sition of tho public is that the label is ap
plied like a postage stamp, therefore there
is a natural opposition to tho system. But
it appears that the label is put on with a
stamp, whose imprint can be seen after
the label is removed.'
The- mastfir. workman called attention to
an erroneous impression that had been cre
ated as to his suggestion that the locals con
sider the advisability of establishing a labDr
bureau. The idea was to establish one gen
eral labor bureau for all the locals, and not
ono for each local, as had been published.
AMONG THE LOCALS.
The members of the Theatrical Alliance
of Stage Employes were f impressed with
the plan adopted by the Electrical Workers
of dispensing with meeting in a hall and
engaging a suite of rooms for headquarters
that they havo followed suit. Rooms have
been engaged at 1S1G E street, and the
members can drop In at any time.
The regular meetings of the alliance are
held on the first Sunday in each month, but
owimj to theadvantagesof thesuitaof rooms
the members have boon enjoying a series of
continued meetings for the past few weeks.
The alliance has every confidence in Col.
Albaugh employing members of the union
in his new opera house when it is com
pleted. Encouraging reportscomeinatevery
meeting, and with the assistance that it
has been rendered by organized labor they
are convinced of attaining their ends.
A straight eight-hour union job or no
union carpenters on the Portner flats was
the verdict of the Carpenters' Council at
its recent meeting, and this action has
been indorsed at the local meetings of
the four organizations of carpenters that
form the council. This request has been
complied with by the contractor.
The electrical workers continue to meet
in the suite of rooms 509 Eleventh street,
and have decided that the experiment is
a success, therefore by unanimous vote
havo copcluded to make the rooms perma
The members have been much interested
in their recent meetings over the prospects
of gaining the suit against the Chesa
peake and Potomac Telephone Company
for damages caused by the fatal accident
of Thomas Connors, one of the members
of the union. The suit is now ended, Mr.
John M. Bergcr, the president of the
union, who had also boon appointed ad
ministrator by the court, agreeing to
accept the compromise of $900, as of
fered by the company.
The mother of Thomas Connors, who by
the death of her son was left without means
of support, has been well cared for by the
union since the accident.
The attendance at the regular meeting
of the Galvanized Iron and Cornice Workers,
held last Thursday. evening in their hall,
737 Seventh street, was very large.
The charter of the Cornice Workers was
closed on April lBt, but this had no effect

Very few of the members reported out of

A NEW INSPECTOR GENERAL. '
Tho inspection this year will be con
ducted by a new inspector general, Win
thro p Alexander. Gen. Ordway for
warded his nomination Wednesday to tho
President. The appointment has been most
enthusiastically received by the guard. A
On all sides it is spoken or in the most
complimentary manner. Two years ago
the new inspector general assisted at tli
inspection and every one was phased
with tho way in winch he handled '.imself..
His appoiutineut bears with it the rank of
major, and is made to fill the vacancy
catised by the death of Gen. Dan Maeauley
last fall. Since then the posit.on lias been
vacant and the boys were wondering who
would inspect them this year.
t Maj. Alexander b?gan his military ca
reer with the Boston School Regiment in
1876, aud was private, corporal, first
lieutenant, respectively, in the command.
From 1879 to 182 he served m the corps
of cadets at the Massachusetts ln";itute
of Technology being, respectively, first ser
geant, captain aud major. In ltfiO he en
listed In the First Mfis-nchusetts Infantry,
and for a time was first lieutenant of Com

Second Rhode Island Infantry, and
was also a member of Light Bat

In 1889 ho came to Washington

bo decided this weik. All the infantry
companies will be expected to be present,
but tho battory and troop may be permitted
to go off on a march by themselves, pro
vided they do so before June 30. The camp
will last ten days.In speaking of the
camp Gen. Ordway said:
GEN. ORDWAY TALKS.
"I have worked fonrars for this camp,
find I expect to ba' a success. In all
Northern States they, are successes, and tho
percentage of attendance of the various
commands must be 90 W more. I have
not issued an order yet, but I will notify
all the commands that thoy must appear In
camp, aud that every organization must
chow 75 per cent, attendance for ten days
or get out. If tho government appropri
ates money forthepurposoof Instructing tho
National Guard of the District, and that
guard does not want to profit by It, why,
the sooner we get rid of thpm, the better."
Gen. Ordway means that tho camp shall
be a success. Ho has worked hard toobtain
tho money necessary and expects each
company to be out in full force. There will
bo no difficulty in any command securing
permission to leave the District to tako part
in any competetivo drill but it must bear
tho 75 per cent, requirement in mind.
It is probable that the St. Louis interstate
drill will catch some of the District com
panies. It is to be held from July 1 to 7 and
camp dutieB would then be over. Most
flattering offers have been made, Tho
prizes aggregating $16,000 in value are

AMONG UQL ATHLETES
What Is Going on in Amateur Cir
cles on Land and Water.
An announcement which cannot fail
to bo of great interest to. all lovers of
amateur field sports is that of the Sports
man's Association, which will hold its .first
exposition at Madison Square Garden,
Now York, from May 13 to 18, Inclusive.
Ono of tho principal features outside
of tho practical tests and illustrations
ot all sortB of field sports is the exhibit
of neccisary articles and appliances.
Tho association hopes to place beforo
the sportsman every essential detail spe
cifically illustrating the evolution and
growth of all that pertains to the life and
pursuits and pleasures of a sportsman.
There will be fourteen classes in all in
the exhibit and each will be broad enough
to show to the fullest extent the evolution
In thiB or that appliance. For instance, In
ahooting the evolution of tho gun i"s tho
history of the catapult, tho cross bow,
the blunderbuss, flintlock guns, percussion
guns, muzzle and breech-loading, and re
peating anus and so on. And so with
all other land sports.
Then take tho water sports, the chief
and best of which is rowing. Of course, of
this there will be no practical Illustration.
The water craft will fchow tho evolution
from the primitive dugout, canoes, 6kiffs,
battcau, aud on through to the delicate

Many of our local sportsmen and athletes

GEORGETOWN COLLEGE ATHLETICS.
Georgetown University will tend a track
and Held team to the annual intercol
legiate games at Mott Haven on May 25,
and the prospects are that the entries will
score a number or points.
Much Is expected rrom George Ma
honey's ("Big Mike") work. He will be en
tered in hammer throwing and putting the
shot aud liroad jump. His work is or the
pheuomenal class when itris considered
that he has had virtually no training to
rub ort the rough places to make his "work
etisier. As it is he-willmake the best-of
them at Mott Haven do their best to keep
out of his way.
Both Harvard and Pennsy are anxious
to seo Mahoney win the six points which
go to the two weight-throwing events, be
cause it'will deprive Yale of this big lead
and give the others a better chance to win
It is aid that each of these colleges has
offered to send its trainer down to coach
Mahoney, but he would not hear to any
proceedings that savored of a "combine,"
prcremng, ir ho can, to win the events
on his own merits.
Georgetown has several speedy track
men. Fox, the new sophomore, who recently
won the interclass 100-yard dash with
ridiculous ease, has good records for
all distances up to 440 yards.
Holt, also a new man, who claims to have
beaten Orton, of "Pennsy'Tameasaspnnter,
is anxious for a chance at his fellow-townsmen
for the inter-collegiate championship.
Murphy, the popular third baseman, who
has done 10 1-5 ror the 100 yards, will
make a goodshowingunderpropertraining.
Claiborne is a mile runner who has a
number ot medals for 5-minute work for
the mile when in his "preps." It will be
a pretty coutestbetweenhim, Douglass, and
Holt to decide which is to represent the

MAN BORN OF WOMAN.
We are told by the poet of the olden
times that ho is cf few days and full or
trouble. Many troubles or men are ot
their own making. Falling into vicious
habits through example or ignorance, ha
soon learns the dreadful effects. Surely
but slowly those nerves grow weaker,
appetite rails, bad taste in the mouth,
visceral organs refuse to perform thebr
functions; at last death would seem a
relief. Dr. Walker of 1411 Pennsylvania
avenue, northwest, has established a
world-wide reputation in the cure of all
diseases of this nature.
Thousands ot men In Washington and
vicinity are guttering tortures every day.
They know there is something wrong. The
family physician does not understand the
case, lie thinks the patient Is "run
down" and needs a tonic. Not being a
specialist, it is not possible for him to
understand these intricate cases. Friends
do not understand; only tho victim him
seir knows. LiTe Is to him a burden,
sapped of vigor and spent of vitality,
enervated anil debilitated with no am
bition, strength or vitality, he lives on
through wearying days and unrefreshlns
nights, as the penalty of his own actions.
It is to the unfortunate sutterer from ner
vous debility in any of Us various forms
that Dr. Walker, the specialist, particularly
addresses himself He has spent a lifetime
In treating nervous and chronic diseases,
and it is due to the successful treatment of
these troubles that has given him the high
reputation which he so proudly maintains.
Let your disease be what It will whether
come ordinary complaint that has becoma
chronic and baffled your family physi
cian, or those most Eerious diseases which,
are undermining your strength, prostrat
ing your vitality and Xast hurrying you
toward a premature grave console Dr.
Walker tho specialist. He makes abso
lutely no charge for consultation, examin
ation or advice, either in person, at his
office, or by letter. Thousands of young
and middle-aged men, with shattered
nerves, weakened powers, and exhausted
vitality, who had tried in vain the treat
ment of other physicians until they had
become discouraged, despairing, and al
most hopeless, have, by applying to Dr.
Walker, been soon restored to sound health,
strength and vigor.
Dr. Walker may be consulted free ot
charge at his well-known sanitarium, 1411
Pennsylvania avenue, adjoining WtHard's
Hotel. Ofrice hours, 10 a. m.. to 5 p. m.;

Georgetown, Princeton vs. "Pennsy."
The standing of Georgetown, earned in
recent gamea, would make the games very
much ot a drawing card.
The team's work in college game3 this
season has been remarkable, as will be seen
by this statement of game3, giving scores
of each team:
