Indiaiiopolis, Nov. 20. That Pow
derly is the ruling mind of the general
assembly of the Knights of Labor has
been evident for some time, and it was
more than ever apparent at the morn.
ing session to-day. The report of the
committee on law was submitted and
was exactly in accordance with the
conditions expressed by Powderly.
Section 15 of the constitution was
amended by the committee to provide
that the elective officers shall be the
general master workman, general
worthy foreman, general secretary
treasurer and the general director.
Of woman's work the executive board
shall consist of four members, besides
the general master workman, and the
general operative board shall consist
of two members besides the general
worthy foreman. All except the gen
eral executive board and general co
operative board shall Do taken from
the general assembly, and when elec
ted shall serve two years. This is a
reduction of two members in each
board, besides the union of the secre
tary -treasurer, and is that much saving
in expenses, but the place where
Powderly inluses the most appears in
section 16 of the same article, which
shall hereafter piovide that ihe general
roaster workman shall be chairman ex
officio of the general executive board
and shall as soon as practicable sub
mit to the general assembly the names
of eight persons eligible under the con
stitution, from which the general as
sembly shall select four members,
This shall be done ire soon as possible
and at the same session at which the
general master workman is elected.
This Section further provides that the
general worthy foreman shall be ex
officio chairman of the general co
operative board, and that he shall sub
mit to the general assembly four names
irom which they shall select two who
will constitute that board. A pro
longed debate followed the introduc
tion of these amendments. It wase'e
sired to reduce all offices and to
change the size of the board, but such
propositions were defeated and the
report of the committee was adopted
by more than the required two-thirds
majority. General Master Workman
Powderly and Gen. Worthy Foreman
Richard Griffiths, of Chicago, will pro

Curo for Literary Drum Drluklnc.
Tho bnbit of dram drinking, it is
said, leads to futty degeneration of tho
heart i. c., cxccssivofuUoning- around
tho heart und weak action of tlio heart
in cojisequence. So, too, tho habit of
exciting novel reading leads to futty
degeneration of tho literary mind
i. o., to an unhealthy and spasmodic
action of tho imagination and a gen
eral weakening of tho power of enter
ing thoroughly into tho bolid interests
of real lifo.
So far as wo know, tho only cfTcctivo
curo for this habit of literary dram
drinking a euro not always forth
comingis a moral bhock of somo
kind which exposes tho hollowness of
all theso unreal interests nnd makes
them appear artificial and melodra
matic as they actually aro. That, how
ever, is a curo which is an extremely
painful ono, almost cruol in its dis
illusionizing power. Thcro arc, wo
beliovc, somo happier mortals who can
curo themselves, us tho grocers' bhop
boys nro wiid to bo cured of their taste
for sugar and raisins and such dainties
by an early surfeit of thorn: but that
is a kind of curo which it talcos a very
healthy mind to opcralo upon.
As a rulo, oven whero tho Mirfcit de
stroys tho zest of novel reading, it also
leaves tho mind too languid to take
eagerly to plainer and inoro wliolo
somo food, and to at onco destroys the
pleasure taken in tho poi.son, and
leaves tho mischief produced bv it..

to placo grapo leaves between layers of
