which evoked applause.) There are some who have believed that banking: organiza tions are joint associations; that managers of railroads should Join associations; that everybody was entitled to Join an associa tion except the laboring man. (Applause.) The laboring man's association has been the means by which he has protected him self in his warfare against other organiza tions amongr other people. Now, my friend, the labor organization has done much good, and yet there is a good that society can do that will add to and supplement the work of the laboring men themselves. I want to speak of it here the principle of arbitration of differences between cor porate employers and their employes. That principle has been forced upon the atten tion of the American people. I believe in arbitration. (Applause.) Arbitration is sim ply the extension of the idea of the court of Justice. (Applause.) It Is merely insti tuting a tribunal, an Impartial tribunal, before which men may go and settle their differences instead of- resorting to violence to settle those differences. "You say the laboring men are interested in arbitration. Yes; they have so ex pressed themselves, but I want to say to you. my friends, that society has a higher interest even than the laboring man in the principle of arbitration. Society has a right to protect itself against these contests be tween labor and capital. Society has a right to say to both employer and em ployed. Instead of asserting a right or a claim and defending it by force, "you shall, in the interest of society, submit that to an impartial tribunal and let justice be done by those who can see both sides.' (Cheers.) "NEW LAWS NECESSARY." "My friends, new conditions make new laws necessary. In the olden times but one man employed a few laborers. There was a bond of sympathy between them. lie knew the names of his employes, lie came In contact with them and sympathy sprang from heart to heart, and this sympathy was an influence that enabled them to agree upon amioable terms. But times have changed. Instead of the employer with a few employes, we now have a great cor poration with I s thousands or its tens of thousands of employes. It is impossible for the employer to know his men. It is im PkS i , e' under these conditions, that there should be that personal sympathy between them which controls their conduct towards each other. What must we do? There is but on'e thing that we can do. Where that personal acquaintance has disappeared, and, therefore, injustice has crept in, so ciety, with its paramount interests and overshadowing rights, can step in and by law supplement that condition, that rela tion, fcnd substitute Jutsice for force in the settlement of those difficulties. (Applause.) "Now, I appeal to you to take the interest In government that you ought to take. I want you to take an Interest in politics. I am not here to suggest to you what meas ures would, in my judgment, bring relief, but I have a right, as an American citizen ppeakin?: to another American teitizen I .Ye 3, nht- 1 s?y' to be of ylJ that you shall recognize the responsibilities which rest upon you as citizens and pre pare yourselves for the intelligent dis charge of every duty imposed upon you. government was not instituted among men to confer special benefits to-any. (A voice, Uood boy!') Government was instituted for the protection of all the citizens, in ordtr that they might enjoy the fruits of .heir own toil and the results of their own exertions (applause), and it is the duty of governments to make the conditions sur rounding the people as pleasant, as agree able as possible, and you must have your opinion, a.d by your vote must have your influence in determining what these con ditions may be. "Aly friends, if you find a largo number of men out of employment, you have a right to Inquire whether idleness is inflicted upon the human race by natural laws, by the act of the Creator or whether it is due to legislation which is wrong. If it is due to legislation which is wrong, then it is not only your right, but your duty, to change that legislation. (Applause.) The greatest menace, to the employed labor to day is the increasing army of the unc-m- ployed. It menaces every man who holds a position, and if that army continues to in crease. It is only a question of time when those who are, as you. say, upon the ragged edge, shall leave the ranks of the em ployed and join those who are out of work. (Applause.) "My friends, I am one of those who be lieve that if you increase the amount of idleness, if you increase the number of those who cannot work, and yet must eat, you will drive men to desperation and in crease the ranks of criminals out of those who would be earning bread under better conditions. (Applause.) The New York World of a few days ago editorially com plained of the increase of crime. My friends, if you find crime increasing, if you find idleness growing, it is not a priv ilege only, it Is a duty that you owe to yourself and your country to see whether you can change that condition and Improve the conditions that surround you. Now, when you come to use the ballot, I want you to remember that that ballot was giv en to you not by a man who employs you, not by any man. (Long and continued ap plause and a voice, 'We will remember youl') That ballot was given to you by law. You had it before he employed you. It will be yours when your employment ceases. You do not tell him that if he does not vote according to your opinion you will quit working for him (laughter and ap plause and cheers); and yet you have just as much right to say to him as he has to say to you that you have got to quit work ing for him if you do not vote the way he wants you to. (Applause.) My friends, when I say this I am not afraid of offend ing anybody, because if-there is an em ployer in this country who ' believes that he has the right, by paying wages, to con trol the vote of those to whom the wages go I say if there is such an employer. I cannot offend him, because that man can not be offended by anything. (Applause.) A LIMB OF TREE BREAKS. "I have known of men who thought that because they loaned a man money that, therefore, as long as they held his notes, he must vote as they wanted him to or risk foreclosure. (Laughter.) I am not afraid of offending any man who -has that opinion, because the man who would use a loan to intimidate a citizen has yet to learn the genius of the institutions under which he lives. (Great applause.) I cannot im press upon your minds any more important truth than this; that your ballot is your own to do with what you please: and that there is nobody that must be satisfied with your-vote except your judgment and your conscience." (Applause, and a voice "You will be satisfied.") Mr. Bryan said: "Don't worry, my friends." (A voice 'They are coming down out of the gallery.') He has not made the mistake that some men are trying to do when they destroy the pro ducer. (Applause.) There is only one per son, there is only one citizen in this coun try who can prove himself unworthy of the ballot which has been given to him. and thai Is the citizen who either sells it, or permits it to be wrested from him under to sell others.') Whenever a man offers you pay for your vote he insults your man rood and you oVght to have no respect for the man who tries to do it. (Applause.) And the man who. Instead of insulting your manhood by an offer of purchase, attempts to intimidate you. or coerce you, insults your citizenship as well as your manhood. (Applause.) "My friends, in this world people have just about as much of good as they deserve. At least, the best way to secure anything that is desirable, is first to deserve that thing. If the people of this country want pood laws they themselves must secure them. If the people want to repeal bad laws 'ney alone have the power to do it. Government presents a contest every day. In a government like ours every year offers the citizen an opportunity to prove his lovo of country. Every year offers him an opportunity to manifest his patriotism. Jt is said that vigilance is the price of liber ty. Yes. not only for a nation, but indi vidual vigilance is the price of individual liberty. The citizen that is indifferent is a citizen who is apt to be misruled. The citi zen who is watchful, tho citizen who is on the alert to make government what it Awarded Highest Honors World Fair, MOST PERFECT MADE. A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder. Free from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant, 40 YEARS THE STANDAR.dC M. ought to be. Is the citizen who has the best chance of living under good laws and wise and beneficent institutions. "Let me leave with you just one parting word. Let me urge you whatever may be your views on political questions, whatever may be your ideas as to the policies pro posed from time to time by various parties let me urge you to make it your highest ambition to prove yourselves worthy of that greatest of all names an American citizen. I thank you." (Great applause.) Mr. Bryan took the 5:30 train on the Burlington road for Lincoln. Neb., stopping at Aurora, 111., for a twenty-minute speech at about 6:30 o'clock. There were about four hundred people at the depot to see his departure, but no demonstration. A reporter handed Mr. Bryan a copy of Mr. Watson's speech delivered to-day at Lallas. Tex. "I have nothing to say on the subject at present." said Mr. Bryan. "I do not care to discuss it." BKYAX EX ROl'TE WEST. He Make Speech at Anrora, and la Anked About the TarifT. AURORA, II!., Sept. 7. On the train leav ing Chicago was a reception committee fiom Aurora, and these gentlemen had pre- ' vailed on Mr. Bryan to stop off thirty min utes and address them. At 6:30 the trainer arrived at Aurora. The platform was crowded with men, women and children, anxious to catch sight of the nominee and hear him speak. Across the street from the railroad tracks a platform had been erected, and Mr. Bryan spoke to the audience from it. Pie said: "Ladies and Gentlemen In the short time I have to speak it will be impossible to more than touch upon the one great issue before us. The people are thinking as they have seldom thought before upon a great economic question. Some consider the money question too deep for the people, but r.o question which concerns 70,000,000 people is too deep for the people themselves. No class can settle the question for another class. We have none in this country who either by birth or by law are intrusted with the privileges of thinking for others. Each one must determine where his inter ests lie. I want to assure you that the money question is sufficiently settled to be understood by all. "Our opponents declare in favor of inter rational bimetallism. Th?y do not say the geld standard is good. If you find a pc'on opposed to free coinage ask what he be lltves in. If he believes in a gold standard tell him he cannot stand upon the Repub lican platform, because it pledges the Re ptblican party to get rid of it. But when? When other nations will help us. (Ap plause.) If the gold standard is a good thing why not keep it? (A voice, 'We will.) I am glad to find one man who is for the stnadard and not a hypocrite, claiming to be for bimetallism. (Cheers.) I wish our opponents would say they are for the gold standard and not a hypocrite, claiming to say they love the money owners better than the toiling masses. (Applause.) Tho man in favor of a gold standard cannot point to a single instance in the history of the world where the people have indorsed the gold standard. It is the money chang ers' standard, and if you take from it the support of the money owning and chang ing class the the gold standard will not survive a day in any nation of the world. That is why the Republican party did not declare for it. It made as bad a mistake as if it had. .because it said that while it desired bimetallism, the American people were too feeble to have what was good for them, but they must wait until foreign nations take pity on us. But the Republic an party refused to take pity, on the Amer ican peorjle. They said we must maintain the gold" standard until commercial na tions will join in international agreement. Why wait if we are strong enough to do it ourselves? I assert that seventy millions of peoole not only have a right to have a financial system of their own, but are able to have it. I wish our ooponents would print upon a card and wear it upon their breasts,: 'I am an American citizen, but I think America has to appeal to foreign nations for legislation for the American people.' Some may think this country not great enough to legislate for itself, but that idea is among people who know more of Lombard street than of the industrial masses of the United States." A Voice What's the matter with the tariff? , Mr. Bryan We are going to regulate that by international agreement as we will bimetallism. Then we will call an inter national conference and adopt a foreign policy and at last we will annex ourselves to some nation big enough to tako care of us and relieve us of f.he trouble. (Cheers and prolonged applause.) Mr. Bryan then took the limited train at 6:40 and the next stop was at Piano, where he shook hands with a few hundred people gathered at the trs.in. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION. Bryan Will Be "Informed" liy the Sil ver Party To-Day. LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 7. Hon. W. J. Brya : will arrive here to-morrow and be formally notified by the National Silver party of his presidential nomination. An effort is being made to have the affair car ried out on an elaborate scale. The local committees have been busily engaged for several days perfecting arrangements. The general plan of the ceremony is now out lined and the work of fitting in the details is rapidly going forward. Mr. Bryan will arrive in Lincoln before noon to-morrow and the formal notification will probably take place in the north front of the State house during the afternoon. A platform to accommodate the candidate, the notifica tion committee of ninety, and other dis tinguished visitors has been erected. The paved space on the north of the State house will permit thousands to see and hear the ceremonies and speeches' on the platform. The committee will decorate the north entrance of the Statehouse in an ap propriate manner. The committee has ar ranged to have a number of the Silver party from all over the West, who will visit Lincoln-jyj that occasion, deliver ad dresses at r iings which will be held at several points in the city to-night and such times on Tuesdayas will not Interfere with the notification. Senator Teller. Congress man Towne and Ignatius Donnelly are booked on the programme for speeches at those meetings. George A. Groot, of Cleve land. O., chairman of the notification com mittee, arrived to-day. A rate of one and one-third fare for the round trip from all points in Nebraska has been secured. The counties in the central and western part of the State are sending in word that delegations will come from most of them and western Iowa and north western Missouri will also send in delega tions. C. W. Jloxie has been selected as the chief marshal. At 7:C0 Tuesday even ing there will be another parade of the clubs with torches, transparencies and fire works and again in the evening there will be speaking on the capitol grounds. Herbert Interviewed in London. LONDON, Sept. 7. The Dally News this morning publishes a column interview with Hon. Hillary A. Herbert, Secretary of the Navy of the United States. Mr. Herbert' ridicules the idea that there is any real dissensions between the North and the South or between the East and West. The threats of Western secession were hardt worth denying and nothing was heard of them in America. "No doubt." said Mr. Herbert, "some of the gold Democrats will feel obliged to vote for the Bryan ticket, because Bryan carried the Chicago con vention; but many will not do so. In my opinion the Bryan movement has reached its height and is now declining. I should be sorry to say." Mr. Herbert continued, "that the silverites are fanatics and fools. Many of them are good men. But I think the silver party is mistaken in its aims and policy." Mr. Herbert said to the Daily News rep resentative that his official position pre vented him from speaking more fully. Gold Men Will Resign. NEW HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 7. It was announced to-day by a member of the Democratic State central committee that at the State convention in this city Sept. 16 the twenty members of the committee who favored the gold standard will resign. This action, it is said, has been decided on be cause it is evident that the silver-standard Democrats will control the convention. REVISED BIBLE NOT ADOPTED. Synod of the Church ot England in (V. n a da Decides to Walt. WINNIPEG. Manitoba. Sept. 7. On Sat urday the General Synod of the' Church of England in Canada, in session at Winnipeg, spent the day in discussing the adoption in the church of the revised edition of the Scriptures. By a small majority the synod decided against their adoption. The Ameri can delegates present unanimously voted with the majority. The house of bishops wiil likely follow the example of the lower house. The principal argument used against adoption of the revised Scriptures was the church in England had not yet seen fit to adopt them, and it was best to await the action of the parent body. JACKSON inr HOW AXD WHERE THE TWO FA. 3IOIS ARCTIC EXPLORERS MET. Details of the Incident Famished by the Englishman and by a Mem ber of the Relief Party. ANOTHER SEA DISCOVERED NAMED IX HONOR OF QUEEN VICTO RIA BY MR. JACKSON. Latter Will Utilize It When He At tempt to Reach the North Pole General Foreign News. (Copyright, 1S96, by the Associated Press.) LONDON, Sept. 7. Henry Fisher, botani cal curator, to the University College Mus eum, Nottingham, and the botanist of the Jackson and Farnsworth arctic expedition, now entering upon its second winter on Franz Josef Land, reached Gravesend on Saturday with four companions by the ex pedition's supply steamer Windward. This vessel landed Dr. Nansen, the Norwegian explorer, at Vardoe island, in the extreme northern part of Norway, on Aug. 13. In an interview to-da Mr. Fisher fur nished further details of the meeting of the two parties on the ice and a letter from Mr. F. G. Jackson just received throws additional light on this interesting chapter in northern exploration history. Mr. Fisher said: "On June 17 we had just finished dinner in our quarters at Cape Flora when suddenly Lieut. Albert Armi tage, R. N. R., our astronomer, put his head in the window anu shouted: " 'How many of you are here? I see a man on the ice floe.' "Mr. Jackson immediately rose and said: 'Whoever it is, I'm off.' "We then scrambled for our telescopes and Lieutenant Armitage and I, who had good glasses, discovered that the stranger was Dr. Nansen. By the time Mr. Jackson met the stranger they looked like two SDecks in the distance. After watching the stranger still more carefully we definitely concluded that he must be Dr. Nansen. He was wearing a ski and was jumping from one ice hummock to another in a marvelous manner." Mr. Jackson's letter is addressed to Mr. W. C. Farnsworth and continues the story. He wrote: "Hearing that some ore had been seen on the ice, I started to meet him. I saw a man on tae pack ice south east of Cape Flora and a second person further off. I fired several shots to attract their attention and, after an hour's walk, we met the man on the ski. We concluded he was a Norwegian and imagined he was a walrus hunter who had come to grief. Approaching nearer, we noticed that he was as black as a stoker, and that from head to foot his clothes were covered with grease. We shook hands warmly and then the following conversation ensued: "Jackson I am awfully glad to see you. "Nansen So am I to see you. "Jackson Have you a ship here? "Nansen No; my ship is not here. "Jackson How many are there of you? "Nansen I have one companion in the distance there. "During this time I was looking steadily in his face, and, in spite of his long black hair and smoke-black skin, I thought he was Dr. Nansen, whom 1 had known in London. So I exclaimed: " 'Are you not Dr. Nansen?' " 'Yes, I am Nansen, was his reply. " 'By Jove,' I answered, 'I really am aw fully glad to see you.' Then we again shook hands still more heartily. " I thank you very much,' said Dr. Nan sen. 'It is very kind of you.' "When we reached headquarters it was midnight, but as light as noon. After Dr. Nansen. and his companion. Lieutenant Schott-Hansen, had a bath, they were shaved and their hair cut. Our photogra pher then took their pictures and they dined with us. Our dinner was a great .success. To Dr. Nansen's astonishment we had roast loon, peas and other vegetables, jam. tart, cheese, preserved fruits and port, sherry and whisky." Mr. Jackson also sent by the Windward a resume of his diary, kept during the past year, and maps of his own making, which entirely alter the geography of Franz Josef Land. He has discovered a great sea where the map of Payeer, the Austrian explorer, shows land. This sea. which Mr. Jackson has named Queen Victoria sea, he thinks, extends without a break from about sev enty miles north of his winter quarters to within three degrees of the pole, and is considered by far the most important body of water yet discovered in those parts. Mr. Jackson also writes: "A long channel through which we passed from Tisto to Queen Victoria sea. 1 named the British channel. Its chief arms are Clements Markham Chanel. Allen Young sound and Robert Peel sound. To this sea I look as my most favorable route in 1897, when the sun returns in the spring. The mapping of Franz Josef Land is practically complete, and nothing should prevent my attempting its open water, or crust of ice, as the case may be. I gave Dr. Nansen tracings of my map and his route south. As his watches ran down he was unable to establish his position correctly. Until he saw my map of last year he supposed that no one had been there before him." GERMAN ARM V MANEUVERS. Wit 'rested by the Kniaer nnd Czar and Their Royal Sponges. GORLITZ, Sept. 7. The Czar and Czarina and the Emperor and Empress of Germany left Breslau by train at 8 o'clock this morning for this city. On the way to the railroad station the imperial carriages were escorted by the Emperor. Nicholas Hussars and the Empress Alexandria dragoons, and at the depot a guard of honor from the Emperor Alexander Grena diers was drawn up. Their Majesties were warmly greeted by the crowds assembled along the route followed and about the sta tion. Upon the arrival here of their Maj esties, they were received in state by the provincial, municipal and military authori ties, assembled on the platform of the rail road station. The burgomaster delivered an address of welcome, to which Emperor William replied, expressing the thanks of Emperor Nicholas as well as his own. The Czar wore the uniform of the Emperor Nicholas Hussars, and Emperor William was dressed in the uniform of the Cuiras siers. Their Majesties drove together to the review ground, followed bv the Em press in a second carriage. The streets were profusely decorated with Russian and German flags, etc., and nearly all the school children of the town and its vicinity in picturesque groups and attired in their brightest holiday clothing. The imperial party was lustily cheered on all sides. The Emperors left the review at 2:43 p m.. riding at the head of the color com pany. Emperor William was on the left of the Czar and General Von Seeckt com manding the Fifth Army Corps, to which the troops reviewed belong, was on his right. On arriving at the town hall the monarehs reined up their horses in order to watch the color company and the Standard Squadron march past. Their Majesties and the Russian suite then dined at the town hall. The Czar and Czarina started for Kiel at C o'clock this evening The departure of the Czar and Czarina was marked by an enthusiastic popular ovation. All of the German princes and the court officials awaited their Majesties at the station and the route of the march was lined with masses of the peoole, who cheered vociferously as the two rulers passed. On the platform at the station tho Czar and Czarina bid adieu to the German princes and to the other distinguished per sons gathered there, and then, in the most cordial manner, they made their farewell to the Emperor and Empress of Germany. The two Empresses embraced warmly both being visibly, moved, as wore also trie two Emperors. The Czar and Czarina then entered the train, the band again playing the Russian anthem. The Russian imperial pair waved adieu from the train until it was out of sight. The town was splendidly illuminated to night ift continuation of the celebration of the meeting of the two Emperors. A mil itary banquet was given this evening, at which Empress Augusta was present. Em peror William, in proposing a toast to the Fifth Army Corps dilated upon the pleas ure which the Czar's visit had afforded him. - Emperor William, in proposing his toast to the Fifth Army Corps, made a long speech complimenting it. He continued: "It is my special satisfaction and your good fortune to appear in this state of high efficiency before the eyes of my beloved neighbor and cousin, his Majesty of Russia. We are still all under the fascination of the youthful figure of the knightly Em peror. We still see him as he rode past us at the head of his late father's regi ment. He, although the commander of a most powerful army, desires to see his troops used only in the, service of culture and for the protection of peace. In com plete accord with me. his efforts are di rected towards drawing together the peo ple of Europe in order to unite them on the grounds of common interests and for the protection of our most sacred posses sions." A London "Bomb Outrage." LONDON. Sept. 7. This city now has a "bomb outrage" to discuss. At about 11 o'clock last night an unknown man threw a clumsily constructed bomb into the premises of Farmer & Brindley, marble masons and sculptors, of No. 63 Westmin ster bridge road. The missile exploded and the report caused a large crowd of people to assemble about the vicinity. The police investigation which followed showed that no serious damage was done. An empty tin-can with its ends blown out was found near the spot where the "bomb" exploded, and a man, shortly after the explosion, was seen running away from the neigh borhood. The police are investigating the "mystery," which is believed to be nothing more than the result of foolish, petty spite upon the part of a. discharged employe. A Governor Imprisoned.

A dispatch from KasaT rfo the-Tribuna of Rome mentions a doubtful rumor that is in circulation there that the Khalifa Abdullahi. the leader of the Dervishes and ruler of the Soudan, is dead at Khartoum.

MEETING OF TOILERS BRITISH TRADES UNION CONGRESS IN ANNUAL SESSION. Men Who Labor Only with Their TonKues, Like Burns, Hurdle and ' Broodhnrst, Barred Out. MANY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO BE DISCUSSED AND DISPOSED OF BY THE DELEGATES. Sentiment of the Unions as Shown by the Resolutions Presented for Consideration. (Copyright, 1WG, by the Associated Press.) EDINBURGH, Sept. 7. The twenty ninth annual Trades Union Congress of Great Britain opened its sessions at the Assembly Rooms, George street, this city, at noon to-day. About 360 delegates were in attendance. The congress will close Sat urday. Sept. 12. The vehement arguments and bitter personalities of the twenty eighth congress, held at Cardiff last year, will not be repeated this year, as the new constitution, adopted then, directed the im proved formation of the congress of 1896. Men like John Burns, Keir Hardie and Henry Broadhurst are not present. In their place are real workingmen, such as the Northumberland and Durham miners union and the boiler makers' union, which latterly have taken no part in the annual congress. Samuel .Wood, secretary of the parlia mentary committee, in an interview pre vious to the meeting to-day, said: "We have not more than 360 delegates this year, owing to the new standing orders, and our congress is much more workable. Under the old constitution there would have been over 700 delegates. The delegates this year are only bona fide workers at their trades and legal members of trade societies. No person can be a delegate unless he is ac tually working at his trade at the time of his appointment, or is a permanent, paid working official of his trade union. This was definitely settled at Cardiff last year. "We are likely, however, to have a little rub or two over an attempt to revert to the old way of voting, where each union or body represented had one vote. Under the new standing orders, each delegate has one vote for every thousand workmen whom he represents. This is direct representa tion, and I do not think it will be over thrown. We have about thirty more trades unions represented this year than last, and about twenty which have never been repre sented before. There are two American delegates, Messrs. Strasser and Sullivan." The work of the present congress is ex ceedingly ambitious when the time availa ble is considered. The parliamentary com mittee, of which Edward Cowey, of the Yorkshire miners, is chairman, and also president of the congress, has prepared a programme in which is embodied eleven resolutions for discussion. To these notice of over twenty amendments have been given. The two sets of resolutions cover the widest field for discussion and effort, practicable and otherwise. The temper of the congress towards the impracticable can perhaps be gauged by a resolution of the paper mill workers, that no representative of the press shall be allowed to report the proceedings unless he can prove that the journal he represents is "printed by trades union labor and on paper manufactured In the United Kingdom." A NOTABLE RESOLUTION. A further intimation of the trend of this congress Is contained in a resolution pro posed by the power loom overlookers to rescind the famous collectivist resolution adopted at the Norwich congress of 1S94 on the initiative of Keir Hardie, and in its place to substitute the following: "That in the opinion of this congress, it is essential to the maintenance of British industries to nationalize the land, mines, minerals, roy alty, rents and railways and municipalize all water, artificial light and tramways undertakings within their several author ities, and that the parliamentary commit tee be instructed to promote and support legislation with the above object." Councilor W. Thorn, of the gas workers, will ask the congress to declare "that the time has arrived when the hours of labor should be limited to eight hours a day in all trades and occupations in the United Kingdom." E. Hartford, of the railway men, will bring up the question of employes' liability by resolution, calling upon the government to so amend the existing act "that among other things the responsibilityynay rest upon the employer for the acts Bf hi3 em ployes or of these of any subcontractor and that, irrespective of the acquisence in or knowledge of any defect or danger on the part of the person killed or injured; that its provisions may apply to the work ers in all industries, on land or sea, in pri vate, state or municipal employment and that contracting out be made illegal." Factory legislation, payments of members of Parliament, taxation of land values and ground rents, which. It is demanded, be made "a test question at the next general election;" employment of children in fac tories and "their consequent exploitation by the capitalist, which is injurious to tne children, unjust to their parents and a crime against the human race;" municipal ization of docks, wharves and warehouses the release of all political prisoners; griev ances of civilian musicians; hours of do mestic servants and which are not to be "more than seventy per week, including one and a half hours for meals per day " fair wages, compensation for injuries; the hours of shop assistants; government con tracts, old-age pensions, education and pub lic money, and many other matters all have places on the programme. THE CONSPIRACY ACT. . The plate-glass bevelers will offer this important resolution: "That the recent de cisions of the judges of the hight courts of justice, in cases arising out of trade dis putes, have made it abundantly clear that the 'trade-union acts of 1871 and 1S7G afford no effectual protection against civil actions brought against officials of trade unions and others who are merely exercising the rights of combinations supposed to be se cured by those acts, and it is, therefore, most essential to the continued and effectual existence of trade unions that the parlia mentary committee of the Trades' Union Congress should endeavor to obtain such an amendment of the 'conspiracy and pro tection of property act of 1S75' as will pro tect those who legitimately exercise the right of combination for trade purposes against civil as well as criminal proceed ings." The tailors society will attempt a sweep ing reform in the alteration of the law of libel, "so that it may become lawful for any person or persons acting in the inter ests of the community, who are doing so without malice, to expose in public meet ings or in the public press any firm or firms who are known to be working con trary to tho interest.-;, or in anv way in jurious, to the workers or the public." The Miners' National Union, represent ing 7G.0W miners in the northern countries sent thirteen delegates, including Messrs. T. Burt. M. P.: C. Fenwick. M. P., and John Wilson. M. P. This body was not represented at Cardiff last year.

Great Organization of Dockers. LONDON, Sept. 7. A meeting of 2.000 deckers was held at Canningtown to-day in connection with the threatened strike in that trade. It was announced at this meet ing that 1,750.0)0 continental dockers .-had joined the International Federation of " I am fully informed as to the proportion of grain entering into the mash from which this whiskey is made, and can say that the proportion Is such as will yield the finest product.

Crisis in the Flffht Between Jobbers und the Pittuburic Company. CHICAGO, Sept. 7. The Tribune says: A crisis is rapidly approaching in the war be tween the plate-glass combine and jobbers of glass, which, the latter say, will force a confession of defeat from one side or tho other within a few weeks. The Jobbers de clare they won't be the ones to fling up the sponge, either,' The struggle has been in progress for six months. Shortly after the consolidation of nine principal factories into the Pittsburg Plate-glass Company the lat ter formed a" peculiar alliance with the large Jobbers in the principal cities. The purpose of it, as the jobbers understood it, was to guarantee trade arrangements that would force consumers to purchase glass from the jobbers and also to provide that the combine should abandon the policy of the factories composing it in selling to con sumers direct. The alliance worked smoothly until the jobbers found out that the combine was ig noring its part of the agreement. Then a smash occurred. The combine immediately appointed one selling agent in each large city and informed the jobbers it had no more quotations to make or glass to sell them. Tho latter poured in their orders to two plate-glass factories that had refused to join the combine and proceeded to meet the combine's price. Since February the two outside factories have worked night and day, and as their orders have increased the factories of the combine have one by one closed until now the entire nine are shut down. A third long idle opposition factory is about starting up with orders booked ahead for several months. The combine is said to have a heavy stock on hand. The outside factories aforesaid are reaping a good profit on their goods, but tho joobers are, they say, selling every thing at cost, and lower in some instances. "No overtures have been made by either side," said a large jobber on Saturday, "but there is a feeling in the air something will drop. The present conditions cannot last much longer. It Is not sentiment that Is inducing the jobbers to tight, but a desire to be preserved. If the combine wins and controls the trade through its selling agents, as it has started out to do, the peo ple will have to pay prices it will fix, and the jobbers will be out of business in plate glass. When it is understood the three out side factories can take care of the con sumptive demand at present, that capital will build new new plants If the demand gets bigger, that the jobbers are generally in good shape financially and that the com bine has a load of big salaries to officers and selling agents and also tixed charges to meet, and has in the bargain probably 5,000,000 feet of glass on hand, it is possible to deduce the probable end of the war. The jobbers won't yield." PLOT TO ESCAPE. Jacknon nntl AValllni; Will Be More Curefully AVatched Hereafter. CINCINNATI, Sept. 7.
