His Agents Say It la a Step Towards Civilisation of the Nation's Red Skinned Wards. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Commission er of Indian Affairs Jones, in his annual report, estimates that the government, from its foundation to 1890, spent SM5.275.290 in fighting, subduing and controlling the In dians of the country, and $240,000,000 for the education and care of their children. "The extent and demoralizing effects of the ration system evil." says the commis sioner in explaining his policy of abolish ing that system, "were generally recog nised and universally condemned, except, perhaps, by a mistak n philanthropy which. Ignoring the natural law that man must earn hla living by the sweat of his brow, would exempt the Indian from labor and carry hin onward on flowery beds of ease. It was felt that it was time for a change. Heretofore the dealing had been with the tribe; It la now with the indi vidual. His manhood is appealed to and he is to be taught self-reliance and self respect and to put his hand to the plow If he would work. Nothing Is further from the truth than the assertion that the plan ia to hire out adult male Indians as contract laborers. The results of the policy have been favorable even beyond expectation, and there is every reason to believe that the final success of the plan. If carried out Judiciously, is assured. As a first result over 12.000 haw been dropped from the ration roll, being wholly self-sap. porting. Aa a second result a large number of Indians have been put to work, or work has been found for them." Concerning the order directing the agents to encourage the discontinuance of the Indians' custom of wearing long hair, paint ing, etc.. Mr. Jones says the r. ports on the subjects by the agents are all in and that the concensus expressed is "that it is a step forward and in the right di rection." The report advocates that agencies and portions of agencies be placed under the Charge Of bonded superintendents of train ing schools, a policy already started wher ever practicable, and. according to the com missioner. giving better administration that when the same agencies were under the control of political fanatics. The total cost of Indian schools during the fiscal year was $3.347.7. or $138 per capita. This amount maintained 24 schools, with an enrollment of 24,434 pupils, and. in addition, a number of pupils at the Hampton, Vs., Institute and at public schools. UNEXPECTED MOVE. (CONTl.nKI FRM FIRST PAGE.) the hearing room, but must be fixed up at the mines. There are upwards of 360 col lieries and there are hardly any two .f them alike. It is argued by the operators that there must be a different scale for each one on account of the varying condi tions and that a uniform wage scale, which Is one of the miners" demands, is impossi ble. Regarding the weighing of coal the operators aay that It would be impossible to grant the demands as presented by the miners because of the nonexistence of ma chinery or system by which a miner can Fair weather. This Shopping after Suitable Suits for the small boys-is no longer a hardship if you come to the right place. Modesty forbids us saying where the right place is, but in making the tour you might include THE WHEN be paid for the 2.240 pounds of prepared coal. It will have to be done, they say, through the present system of averages. The proposition is to have the mine workers make the contracts with their em ployers only, and not as it is done in the bituminous States, where the operators have State or district organizations which recognize the United Mine Workers of America. The proposed contract with each company does not carry with it a recogni tion of that union, and on that ground it is note likely that the two parties will be able to settle It without resort to the ar bitration commission. It is not doubted that whatever agreement, if one is reached, will be approved by the commission. The agreement, however, will have to be one that will provide for a reasonably sure per manent settlement. The instructions given to the commissioners by President Roose velt when he handed the case to them to settle are explicit. In these instructions he said: "You will endeavor to establish the rela tion between the employers and the wage workers in the anthracite fields on a just and permanent basis, and, as far as possi ble, do away with any causes for the re currence of such difficulties as those which you have been called in to settle." When one of the commissioners was asked what the commission would do in case it thought the agreement would not be per manent, he said: "We will cross that bridge when we come to it." YESTERDAY'S TESTIMONY. Dr. R. H. Gibbons, of Scranton, was ex amined to-day. He said that the occupa tion of a miner subjects a man to pleurisy, gout, neuralgia, asthma, bronchitic, sciatica and other diseases. He believed the day would come when men would be subjected to medical examination before they under take mining. Children, he said, who have suffered from any form of disease of the respiratory passages, bronchitis or pneu monia, should never be permitted in the mines under the age of fifteen years, be cause they should have a chance to elim inate the predisposing factor in the case of so-called miners' asthma. Dr. Gibbons then described the surface indications of miners' asthma, his testimony in this re spect not differing essentially from that given by other expert witnesses. Dr. Gibbons was followed by Dr. Eugene J. Butler, a member of the Central Poor Board of Luzerne county, who testified that 70 per cent, of those in one of the poorhouses In Luzerne county were miners, and that 40 per cent, were crippled by acci dents in and about the mines. Many of these, he said, had become insane through worry over their affliction. A man who works a few years as a miner, he declared, is not fit for anything else. A. McClintock, representing the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company, cross-examined the witness and asked if it was not true that a large number of the profession al men and merchants in Wilkesbarre were rr.en whose fathers and grandfathers had been employed in the mines. "I that Is so," the witness replied, "the fathers and grandfathers were the wise fellows who got out in time. They were not men who worked for twenty or twenty-live years In the mines." Dr. Butler was excused and the Rev. Dr. Robert was called to the stand, his examin ation being conducted by Mr. Darrow for the mine workers. He reiterated his belief expressed In his book that an intelligent and p. rsistent combination among miners for the maintenance of prices and rates of uajres would secure a Just share of the profit for the workers. In answer to Commissioner Clark, Dr. Roberts detined the use of the words "an thracite syndicate" in his book by saying he had reached the conclusion that there was an understanding among the operators to adjust the prices and regulate the trade. This conclusion he had reached from per sonal Investigation. "In view of the last strike." Mr. Darrow Sked, "and everything that has occurred Since, have your views as to the desira bility of collective bargaining In the an thracite regions been modiPed or strength ened, or have they charged at all" "Strengthened decide Uy.' the witness re plied. It was agreed to-night by the miners' representatives and the attorneys for the coal companies to ask the commission to adjourn to-morrow until Wednesday, Dec. 3. It Is likely the request will be granted. Concrete Buildings. Kansas City Journal. "The old Romans made their buildings of solid concrete." said a contractor. "Mankind long since discarded that idea, but now we are taking it up again. Here and there throughout America a number of concrete buildings have been erected in the last two years, and they have proved to be great successes. Such structures, of course, are absolutely fireproof. Their con crete Moors have the same smooth surface that you see in sidewalks. Only their win dow casings and sashes are of wood. In the construction of these buildings a great deal of false or temporary work must be done in order to mold the concrete. False floors and false girders in the form of boxes must be set up. and after the concrete has been molded they must be torn down. Thus a concrete interior finish is more ex pensive than wooden floors, buttressed by great timbers, but on the other hand. It is cheaper than steel, and It is more thor oughly fireproof than any other substance in the world." . Safe Prophecy. Minneapolis Times. When Presinent Roosevelt says anything he says something. His forthcoming ftMS sage to Congress will be looked for with deep lntere . Ly all the people. He recom mended terseness In his subordinates in making reports and his recommendation is equivalent to a command. When Theodore Roosevelt Is terse he is apt to be mighty convincing and strenuous a whole lot. The message to the second session of the Fifty seventh Congress is likely to be historical, sure to be what Greeley called "mighty interestln' reaotn'." It tones up the whole system Jayue's Tonic Vermifuge. MYSTERY NOT SOLVED NO NEW LIGHT ON THE SHOOTING OF MKS. ELLEN GORE AT PARIS. Consul General Govrdr Du Endeav oring to Solve the Mysterious Man ner of Her Death. DE EYDZEWSKI STILL HELD MRS. GORE HAD MANY FRIENDS IN THE CITY OF MEXICO. Separated from Her Wealthy H01 band, Who I Now Relieved to Re with an Opera Company. PARIS. Nov. 21. The tragic death of the young American artist. Mrs. Ellen Gore, continues to occupy the attention of the po lice and the staff of the American consul ate. The developments of the true Inward ness of the mystery were followed with eager Interest by the public to-day and brought forward many who had known Mrs. Gore here and in America, and from them her antecedents were fully obtained. It was developed also that she had been a pupil of the famous composer, Moszkowskl, while De Rydzewski was a pupil of Jan Lassalle, the baritone of the Grand Opera. The police branch of the mystery seemingly remains undeveloped, and no further light has been thrown on the causes which led to the tragedy or the clmcumstances attending its enactment. An autopsy was held to-day by Dr. Soc quet and resulted In 1 formal report that the cause of death was a bullet wound. Consul General Gowd assigned a member of his staff to attend 'he autopsy and take notes of the condition of the body. That official reported that the bullet entered the forehead above the left eye and went clear through the head. The bullet was not found. The prefect of police designated Gastinne Rennette, the expert armorer, to study the weapon and wound for the pur pose of determining the possibility of sui cide. Although many friends of Mrs. Gore called on Mr. Gowdy none claimed the body, and late In the day he cabled Attorney But ler, of Mexico City, asking as to its disposi tion. The most circumstantial account concern ing Mrs. Gore was furnished by Vincent Toledo, director of a leading piano estab lishment in the Avenue de l'Opera. He says she was introduced to him by letters from musical friends in New York. She appeared to him most charming and viva cious and devoted to music. She received all of her mail at a private address. She traveled in the early summer over Europe and took lessons In Vienna from a leading master. Returning last August she asked to be recommended to a master of the high est rank. Moszkowskl was chosen. She studied with great ardor and took part in a number of musicales. Last Tuesday she accepted an invitation to the opera from M. Toledo for last night, and he was horrified on going for her to find her dead. Moszkowskl. on bdng interviewed, said: "I cannot believe Mrs. Gore has committed suicide. She was of the happiest disposi tion. I never saw the least evidence of melancholy. She was deeply Interested in her work and gave much promise as a musician. It was her purpose after com pleting her musical education to return to America. She Inquired of me recently If I thought she would make an excellent pro fessional. She has taken lessons of me every Tuesday since the 10th of October. Last Tuesday I received a note from her saying she was suffering from Indisposition. I did not know anything of her private life." De Rydzewski continues In confinement. The police decline to admit his friends to see him pending inquiries. M. Lassalle has undertaken to champion his pupil's inter ests and has designated two leauing law yers to defend him. Lassalle says the murder theory is untenable, as De Ivydzew ski is of a tender, sympathetic disposi tion. The police have modified their theory on one damaging clew. De Rydzewski at first exclaimed that the girl was dead and he afterwards said she had committed suicide. The police at first held this to be a dam aging contradiction, but Commissary Landel said, after further Investigation to day, that the second declaration regarding suicide was misunderstood and that De Rydzewski intended to indicate merely that she was dead. The Journal states that Dr. Soquet's re port on the autopsy of the dead woman es tablishes that the bullet entered her head from below and passed upwards, thus sup porting Rydzewski's story that the acci dent was duo to the fall of the revolver. De Rydsewrski Was Infatuated. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21.-Mrs. Col. T. B. Dickinson, of Alameda, an aunt of Mrs. Gore, when seen to-night declared that her niece did not commit suicide. Mrs. Dickin son said that she was in receipt of several letters from Mrs. Gore stating that De Rydzewski was infatuated with her and had threatened her. MRS. GORE'S ANTECEDENTS. Was Born in Ohio, Married a Canadian and Separated In Mexico. MEXICO CITY, Nov. 21. The tragic death in Paris of Mrs. Gore, wife of Thom as Sinclair Gore, has greatly shocked her friends In this city. She was regarded as a lady of artistic tastes and had a large circle of acquaintances In the American and English colonies. Her husband is a Canadian, and brought his wife here as a bride some fifteen years ago. She is be lieved to have been born in Ohio, but on being orphaned at an early age was brought up by her aunt, Mrs. P. T. Dickln- I 1, of Alameda. Cal. It Is said that the couple did not live happily together. They had one child, which died. For some time P ist Mr. and Mrs. Gore have lived apart, and she, being of an artistic temperament and fond of music, went to Vienna, where she studied under good masters. She re turned to this city to arrange for her fu ture support, her husband being the owner of a large amount of real estate and pro prietor of the Gore Court apartment house in the fashionable quarter. It is understood that Mr. Gore was very liberal In the treat ment of his wife, agreeing to an equal di vision of the ownership and rent as far as the apartment house was concerned. Edward C. Butler, her attorney here, says that the Idea of suicide Is to be discarded at once. Mrs. Gore was wrapped up in her music, and her husband's business interests here were in excellent shape. He had only v. terday received a business letter from her, signed Nellie S. Gore. In this letter she wrote: "I am taking lessons with Mos zowski. the great composer and pianist. I am working hard and getting along well. I am also taking French lessons, so that my time is completely occupied. I hope everything is going on all right. My love to Mrs. Butler." Mrs. Gore Is recalled as being a refined woman of irreproachable character, ad mired for her grace and taste in dress, and was often known to take part in concerts here. Her husband made his money In coal and real-estate operations. He is now sup posed to be singing in opera in the United States, although possessed of large prop ertv here. He treated his wife with gen erosity and is himself well regarded in this City. Mrs. (lore's maiden name was Nellie S sUogdall. and her father was a Methodist minister, who died many years ago. She Was Divorced. NEW YORK. Nov. 21. It has been dis covered that Mrs. Gore lived In Madison avenue, near Twenty-eighth street, in this citv until she went abroad on the steamer Frlealand on July IL' While here she ob tained a divorce from her husband, who was an architect, and a man of wealth in Mexico. Mrs. Gore's only relative is said to be an aunt living near Oakland, Cal. Teacher of French Found Dead. NEW YORK. Nov. 21. Miss Edith Q. Hodges, a young woman who had recently been supporting herself by giving lessons In French, was found dead to-night in her bedroom in a boarding house in Bronx. Death is believed to have resulted from an accidental overdose of valerian which she was in the habit of taking for insomnia. From letters found in the room it waj learned that her mother lives at No. 2306 Grandvlew avenue. Walnut Hills. Cincin nati, and that she had a sister, Mrs. Emma C. Williams, living at Malone. N. Y. STOLE A SCHOONER. American Who Was Sentenced to Five Yeara' Imprisonment In China. VICTORIA. B. C. Nov. 21 According to mail advices from Shanghai, Henry Plant, the American who was sentenced to five years' imprisonment in that port, had buried considerable loot near Tien-Tsin. He plotted with two deserters from the United States army to steal the schooner Agnes from the United States consulate for the purpose of reaching Tang-Ku, which is within walking distance of the spot where the treasure is burled. The men were caught in the act of sailing away with the schooner. They were convicted and sen tenced to Imprisonment. On completion of their sentences they will be deported to the United States. Plant previously had been sentenced to four years' imprisonment by the United States Consular Court at Tien Tsin for looting. He was pardoned in May and liberated from the" American jail at Shanghai.

The Christian community of the Universal Brotherhood, at Crowstand, Assinaboia, Canada, have sought a home in this country, but have been officially notified that the community cannot settle on government domain. The community, represented by Ivan Pono mareff and others, forwarded a letter to the President asking for a refuge in the United States. The letter was referred to the In terior Department. Assistant Commis sioner Richards, of the General Land Office, has forwarded a reply, announcing that they canot locate on the public lands of the United States. Mr. Richards says: "In said letter you state that your com munity numbers more than 7,000 and that in 1898 and 1890 you emigrated from Russia to Canada because the Russian government would not permit you to live according to the dictates of your religion. You have discovered that, although in Canada there Is religious freedom, still it is not what you were in search of; that you yield obedience only to the commands of the spirit of God, in your hearts, and cannot submit to any human laws or become the subjects of any sovereign; that you are not compelled to bear arms or perform military' service In Canada, but must become subjects of Great Britain, and, therefore, you cannot obtain land on which to live without obeying 'all the institutions and laws of Canada.' You therefore ask that you may be given refuge in this country or on land under the juris diction of this government, where you may live by the labor of your hands, and where you 'shall not be forced to obey human ordinances or be asked to become subjects of any one except the good God.' You state that you use no meat or milk, but only vegetables and fruit; that you have no domestic animals and all your work Is done by your own labor, and ask only for so much land as you can cultivate by man ual labor without the assistance of ani mals, etc. "In reply I have to advise you that the public lands of the United States are dis posed of only to citizens of the United States or to those who have declared their intention to become such citizens."

The pontiff spoke cordially to each and gave them individually his hand to kiss. Herr Krupp has issued a statement to the press to the effect that the Vorwaerts's allegation against him grew out of a politi cal fight. He explains that a keeper of a hotel at the Island of Capri, where Herr Krupp lodged, having won an election, his opponents invented the damaging story to injure his hotel. The great gun maker has placarded his work? at Essen with an an nouncement that he will prosecute the Vorwaerts for slander. The past week has witnessed a considera ble depression at ail the leading centers of the British iron and steel industries and prices have undergone an all-around re duction. Considerable shipments are being made to the United States, but the news that a cargo of Canadian iron is on its way to the Clyde hr.s been received with mis giving, as indicating the possibility of the American trade being no longer able to ab sorb ail the Canadian suppli. a. When the hearing of the charges of cruel ty against Mrs Annie Penruddock, of Compton Park. Wiltshire, was resumed at the Old Bailey yesterday, the defendant was placed In the witness box and made a sweeping denial of all the charges brought against her. A number of her friends testi fied that they had never seen her daughter subjected to any cruelty. The jury, how ever, found her guilty of assaulting and neglecting her daughter in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering and injury to h r health and censured her husband for countenancing the cruelty. She was fined $1.250. A state banquet of fifty covers was held in Windsor Castle, England, last night.

The budget, he added, would be submitted in two or three weeks. The deficit for 1902 was $14.750.000. It would not do. the secretary said, to be always pro viding for deficits by loans, nor could the contributions of the federated states be increased. Nevertheless it was probable that the states would ultimately have to bear the deficit. What ought to be done was to increase the imperial revenues so as to balance the expenditures. Looking around for suitable objects for Increased taxation he saw beer and tobacco, and he begged the members of the house to keep these in view while thinking how to bal ance the budget. Baron Von Thielmann also intimated that the government intend ed as soon as practicable to propose pen sions for widows and orphans. AT WORK ON MESSAGE PRESIDENT RETURNS TO HIS DESK IN HIS OFFICE. At Once Pitches Into Business Pre paratory to Finishing; His Annual Address to Congress. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. President Roosevelt arrived here at 8 o'clock this morning over the Southern Railroad. A little crowd was at the station to welcome his return. As he left the train he shook hands with the engineer and fireman, and thanked them for the safe run they had made. The President and Secretary Cortel you were driven direct to the White House; The President began at once to dispose of a mass of business which had accumulated during his absence. During the next four or five days, as opportunity may offer, the President will put the finishing touches on his annual message to Congress. It is un derstood that the message will be sent to Congress on the second day of the ap proaching session, Tuesday, Dec. 2, owing to the fact that deaths of members of both houses have occurred during the recess, which will necessitate an adjournment on Monday. The document is almost com pleted, but some points of it are yet to be written finally and the whole revised. Dur ing the early days of next week the Presi dent will consult on parts of his message with Republican leaders In Congress. Several of the leaders in both branches of Congress have been Invited by the Pres ident to call on him at the executive offices next Monday. He will discuss with them the features of his forthcoming message relating to trusts and the tariff. The Pres ident hopes as a result of his conference with Republican leaders to facilitate the work of the approaching session of Congress and pave the way for a reconcil iation of any differences that may arise be tween the two houses. Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, took luncheon with the President to-day and they discussed freely some of the important features of the President's message. Will Visit Philadelphia To-Day. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21. President Roosevelt will be the guest of honor at two celebrations in this city to-morrow. Accom panied by several members of his Cabinet, he will attend the dedicatory exercises of the Central High School for Boys during the day, and in the evening will participate in the observance of Founders' day at the Union League.

Stotesbury, a director of the Union League. An Automatic "Pompom." WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.-General Cro zier, chief of ordnance, has prepared a memorandum, showing what has been done in his bureau in the matter of new work and new experiments since the period cov ered by his last annual report. A trial has been made of the Improved automatic "pompom" gun at Sandy Hook. The per formance of the gun was generally good, but the accuracy of the steel shell at 2,000 and 2,500 yards was poor. With the automatic action 100 rounds were fired in seventy-eight seconds and 200 rounds in 147 seconds. Several changes are needed in the gun and mechanism. The whole equipment of this gun as a field piece is heavier than the weight of the gun and ammuni tion appears to warrant. It has been decided to equip the wheels of the am munition truck with rubber tires to avoid danger of explosions. The new swords for officers, of three different lengths, are be ing manufactured and it is expected that a sufficient supply will be ready to meet the demand when the new uniforms are to be donned. A one-pounder steel shell has been manufactured for subcallber prac tice. This shell bursts upon Impact with the water and the effectiveness of the shots can be easily gauged. Case of a Water-Cnre Victim. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Secretary of War Root to-day sent Attorney General Knox the papers in the case of Father Augustine, who died from the effects of the water cure, administered by soldiers while serving in the Philippines. The case has been thoroughly investigated by the Judge advocate general of the army upon the charges brought by Charles Francis Adams, Herbert Welsh and others of what was known as the Lake George Confer ence. It cannot be found that any per son now serving in the United States army was responsible in any way for the death of the frair, and, therefore, the persons cannot be tried by court-martial. It is ex pected that following the precedents grow ing out of other wars the attorney general will render an opinion that neither the courts in this country nor those in the Philippines have any jurisdiction over the men or officers who have been discharged from the army. Captain Brownell, a vol unteer officer who was In command of the troops which administered the water cure, has acknowledged that the cure was ad ministered and that the man died. Will Use the Nero's Soundings. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Secretary Moody to-day directed that the Nero sound ings be turned over to the Pacific Cable Company. This action resulted from a con ference to-day between Secretary Moody and Rear Admiral Bradford, chief of the Bureau of Equipment. In regard to the proposition of the Commercial Pacific Cable Company to construct a cable from San Francisco to Honolulu. The secretary has authorized the admiral to turn over the soundings made oy the Navy Department to the Pacific Cable Company as soon as the necessary papers have been drawn up. These soundings, which were made by the Nero, represent more than a year's work and an expenditure of about $100,080. As a result of the secretary's determination to relinquish the soundings of the Nero in return for concessions to the government in cable rate: and In military use of the cable it is expected that a cable will be in operation between San Francisco and Hon olulu within six months, and work will then be pushed on the line between Honolulu and Manila. Commander Harris Off Duty. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON. Nov. 21.-In a cablegram received at the Navy Department to-day from Amoy, Rear Admiral Evans informs the department that Commander U. R. Harris, of Indiana, has been relieved from duty as Governor of Subig. Mollneux and the Yellows. Pittsburg Chronicle Telegraph. The estimate that $500,000 has been spent in the Molineux trials, by both sides, the first trial in itself costing the State not less than a quarter of a million dollars, is an exhibit that indicates that justice may be made to come high in New York or any other place where there is competition among journals of the yellow stripe to con vict some one of crime for the lurid glory that attaches to the detective hero of melo drama or of the yellow-back romance. There is no doubt that Journalism of the type made famous in New York by at most a few papers was responsible for the con viction of Molineux on his first trial. Had he been executed they would have claimed the credit for it. What do they think of the situation now? Fortunately, there is a healthier journalism in New York than the yellow-back kind, and the Journalism of the United States in general is not yellow. Cauae for Alarm. St. Paul Pioneer Press. Senator Morgan says that If President Roosevelt is renominated in 1904 the Demo crats will win. The basis of this theory is Roosevelt's treatment of the Lily White Re publicans. The South has always contrib uted so many electoral votes to the Repub lican party that Roosevelt must be alarmed.

Troubles of the Woodworkers, Car penters and Others Aired School Teachers to Be Organised. NEW ORLEANS. Nov. 21. Arguments long drawn out in support of conflicting claims of jurisdiction occupied the time of the American Federation of Labor to-day. In the morning it was the row between the woodworkers and the carpenters and be tween the woodworkers and the piano workers. In the afternoon it was between the 'longshoremen and the seamen. All the disputes ended In the same manner. Every one was referred to a special committee, which is to meet within a given time and endeavor to reach a solution which will be agreeable to both sides. The constant flow or oratory to which the convention has been subjected for the last three days has commenced to wear on the nerves of dele gates, and speakers to-day were compelled to keep much more closely to the matter under discussion than on any preceding day. One delegate this afternoon, in an at tempt to explain why marine engineers should belong to the Seamen's instead of the Longshoremen's Union, branched out into a description Of a Labor day parade in San Francisco, "when the Seamen's Union had 20.000 men in line." He was summarilv called to order and told to keep to his text. Earlier in the convention di vergences greater than that w. r. frequent and long. The report of the grievance committee was resumed at the night session and three hours and a half were consumed in a debate to determine whether maritime cooks and stewards properly belonged in th seaman's union or to the restaurant employes. The committee recommended that the cooks and stewards on "ocean bound" vessels should belong to the seamen's union and on all other craft to the restaurant employes. The report was adopted. The convention ad journed at 11:30 until 10 o'clock to-morrow. The committee on organisation has de cided to report to the contention in favor ,.f organizing the teachers of the public schools into unions. The rffthas not. however, been made to the fjanvention. The eight-hour committee met to-night and de cided to recommend to the convention the passage of a national eight-hour law. From present indications the next con vention will go either to Philadelphia. Bos ton or Ban Francisco, with Milwaukee a possibility.
