vate bills wcro considered.
Mr. Lanham replied that ho know noth
ing to the contrary,
Mr. ltced wanted further assurance,
but failed to set it.
Mr. McMlIlln said ho did not like to Seo

incor tliolournal. nnd thatlt was tldio
' that some ol'tho appropriation bills w'cW)

Mr. ltced retorted that tho Democrats
should havo thought or that last week.
It was now evident that a nassaae-at-
arms would tako place and confusion bo

trapping with his gavel for order some one
ion tho Jtcpubllcau side demanded the

Democrats In Congres had conspired to
keep Dakota out of the Union until aftor
tho Presidential election. Mr. Butler in
.respouso said ho did not think Mr. Cul
lom would- require tho electoral votes of
Dakota and jokingly inquired of each of
the Presidential candidates whether ho
needed them. Mr, Cullom laughingly ro
nlicd that ho would like to novo them

Ho boarded ot AIln Hov's home and

CO-OPERATION.

Iairgo Scale,
PliiLADEi.ruiA, April 13. Charles II.
Lltchman, general secretory of the
Knights of Labor, has issued a circular lo
tho members of the order outlining a
plan for practical co-operation.
" Co-oporatloit," tho circular says,
begins and' seems to succeed better In
distribution through stores rather than
in production through factories. Fol
lowing out this apparently natural law
or re-operative cllbrt, wo bellcyo It pos
sible ot onco and without capital to
establish in and through tho ordor tho
grandest co-operatlvo ellort the world has
ever soon." .
Mr. Lltchman, in a brier outline or Iho
plan, then suggests that manufacturers
una co-operative establishments, "mem
bers of the order" llio with the general
secretary a complcto price catalogue or
tho goods they produce; that these prlco
lists bo classified and printed copies scut
to every local assembly, nnd that each as
sembly appoint an ngunt to handle orders
lor ino goous.
Tho scheme abo provides for o feo from
each establishment entering into the ar
rangement; tho stamping ot tho makers'
name upon tho poods to guarantoo their
mahty, etc, Tho circular concludes:
"Tho gain would be nn immenso concen
tration of patronage upon goods produced
by our own people, quality guaranteed,
prices moderate, elimination as far as
possible of middlemen, nnd the substitu
tion of a co-operatlvo for a competitive
system."
