Instructions for Strict Enforcement by Attorney General Moody. Washington. Nov. — Attorney General Moody to-day Issued a circular letter of Instructions to United States attorneys regarding prosecutions of violations of the eight-hour law, in which he says the government Is determined upon a strict en forcement of this statute as relating to publlo works of the United States. All United States at torneys are directed diligently to Investigate all complaints which may come to them from any source of violation of the law, and upon their own initiative to make Investigation If there appears any reasonable ground for aaspaetlac a violation, and where rafllctant evidence can be secured it must be submitted to a grand Jury, with a view to tectiring an Indictment. C. J. Carlton, a lawyer, of Haverhill. ilass.. has bean appointed by the Attorney General to have special charge or these cases In the Department of Justice. It is stated that while up to two or three months ago comparatively few cases of alleged violations of the eight-hour law were brought to the atten tion of the department, in the last ten weeks as many aa t:.r«e hundred alleged violations have been reported. Mr. Carlton will act In conjunction with Commissioner KefU. of the Bureau of Labor, who has furnished much of the evidence upon which the department Is now acting. The text of the Attorney General's letter Is as follows: To United States Attorney*: By order of the Pr*-blder;t jour attention Is directed to the pro visions of "an act relating: to the limitation of the hours of daily service of Laborers and mechanics employed uron ths public works of the United States and of the DUtrict of Columbia," approved August 1, IKS, commonly known as the eight-hour law. The government is determined upon a strict en forcement of this 6tatute, and you are directed dili gently 10 Investigate all complaints which may coma to >■•■ from any eource of violations of the law and vi n your own Initiative to make inyestl gation If there appears to you to be any reasonable ground for suspecting violation of this law. In every case in which you can secure sufficient evi dence you will submit that evidence to the erand Jury, with a view to securing an Indictment. Your attention is particularly directed to the ex ception In the first uectlon of the statute under which laborers and mechanics may be worked more than eight hours In a calendar day "in oase of extraordinary emergency." In a recent case in the District of Massachusetts Judge Dodge defined that phrase as follows: "An extraordinary emergency, such ac Is contemplated by The act, is the sudden, unexpected happening; of something not of th<» usual, customary or regular kind, demanding prompt action to avert Imminent danger to life, limb, health or property. The possibility of danger is not enough. The peril must he certain, un usual. Imminent and actual In order to constitute an extraordinary emerge! Buch as the statute contemplates." Judge Dodge also ruled that prob able pecuniary loss to the contractor, unless due to an extraordinary emersenry, as <lefin«*i above, Is only an ordinary business rl. c k. I desire to Impress upon you the importance of using every effort to execute these directions, of h«>irifr vigilant and active In this matter. You will make prompt and full rep* rt to me of all cases and of your action thereon, with your reasons therefor. You will report Immediately the action of the grand Jury an^'the -■■•-• ail trials, with a specifics statement of the penalty imposed. Haverhill. Mass.. Xov. IS— C. .T.

[I*ram TO.* Tribune Bureau.] ■Washington, Nov. Troubla Is brewing tor the South Carolina Immigration authorities who were recently Instrumental In bringing in a ship load of Europeans to the port of Charleston. The United States Immigration bureau has re ceived complaints alleging: that thea© aliens were brought to this country In violation of the Con tract Labor law. The solicitor of th© Depart ment of Commerce and Labor has been Instruct ed to make an Investigation. The raising: of a question as to the letral'.ty of inducing immi gration to South Carolina may throw a damper over the whole project of diverting Immigration to Southern ports, which has been taken up re cently by a number of states. South Carolina was among the first regularly to organize an im migration commission and to effect a shipment from Europe direct to a Southern port. "When the immigrants arrived Commissioner General Sargent was on hand by special request to su pervise the examination of the Immigrants and all but three on the ship were admitted. This was all that the immigration bureau had to do with the shipment, and if no complaint had been mad©, the inspection of th© federal offi cials would have ended th© matter. The com plaints to th© department relate to the methods used by the South Carolina immigration com missioner in encouraging th© aliens to take pas sage for South Carolina, It is alleged that they were Induced to come under promise of employ ment or an agreement This is a feature of the Contract Labor law. for enforcement of which the immigration authorities are responsible and whatever evidence has been submitted will 'have thorough investigation and study. TO PUSH PATRICK CASE. Appeal in the Ordinary Course Would Xot Be Reached Until April. [TVom Tha Tribune Bur«&a.] Washington, Nov. 13. — An effort on th© part cf District Attorney Jeroma to advance th© hearing of the Albert T. Patrick case in the TJtattad States Suprem© Court is expected, becaus© of an inquiry received here by Supreme Court officials from one of Mr. Jerome's assistants for Informa tion relative to tha status of th© case on the docket. This is th© first manifestation of Interest in the atandlns; of the case before the Snprem© Court th© District Attorney's office has exhibited slnoe the ajppeal was granted last July. The case has Us place on th© Supreme Court cal endar, where it Is No. 838, and under ordinary ciroumstances would not be reached until April, thus granting Patrick, who Is under sentence of death, a long reprieve. It Is believed that Mr. Jerome will make a motion to get an earlier hearing to avoid giving Patrick's counsel the ad vautages of the long- delay. In any event the case cannot come up until January, as tha Su preme Court Is confronted with an unusually heavy docket for th© remainder of the fall term, and a vacation will be taken at Thanksgiving and aJso for Christmas.

NEW NAVAL, ENGINEER OFFICERS.— "Dr.* Navy Department win In a ■week or two designate tha Junior officers, probably eight or ten in number. •who win take up naval engineering: as a specialty under the system of making that duty the object of several years' study and practical work under trained officers of the old engineering corps. For a year a number of officers of the line, of th» Junior grade have been engaged on this work, under Commander B. C. Bryan. They have heard lect ure* In "Washington, visited the various manufact uring plants, navy yards and. private shipyards and are now about to go to sea. They have served as assistants to the Inspectors of material, and have, aided in the official trials of the new ships. They are In all respects competent to take positions as trained engineers and will now obtain the. practi cal experience necessary as a finishing touch. They will then be detailed to engineering work perma nently, mostly of a designing character. The ex periment of training these officers has been ob served with much Interest in th«» service as a step which paved the navy from one day being con fronted with the fact of possessing no specialists In engineering. It la not known Just how many officers can be spared for the second place, but an effort will be made to have as many as twelve de tailed for the purpose. MILTTAUT PRISON SCHOOL..— Reports received from the military prison at Fort Leaven-worth. Kan.. Indicate that th« prisoners should he more closely employed. They may not work overtime, and It Is not possible for the present to furnish all of them with employment In the shops. The plant has not been fully equipped. In the mean time something must be done to keep the prisoners busy. It Is proposed to establish a day and night school. u> be conducted by the army chaplain on duty at the Institution. It Is found to be possible to equip euch a school out of existing funds of the war Department, and to conduct the school after the manner of the schools at army posts. The fact that tiie prison is not a post does not Interfere with the project In any way. The chaplain has been detailed for duty there, and It fa proper, It is ex plained, to regard such an Incident as carrying with It the usual means of aiding: that officer m his work as prescribed by the regulation* and the laws. WIRELESS FOR TORPEDO CRAFT.— The wire less telegraphy will bo used on board the torpedo craft of the navy to a limited extent, and the first of the boats of that class to receive the apparatus will be the Whlpple. one of the destroyers, which Is used as the flagship of the commanding officer of the flotilla In home waters. It Is possible that one of the torpedo boat* on the Pacific Coast and one on the Asiatics station will be similarly equipped, but the action will be delayed until after the in stallation on the Whlpple has been fully tested. Wireless on torpedo boats will have Its uses, of cour66, but there will be a decided limit to the means of communication, em •» the ships cannot carry tail masts, and It is considered that one boat equipped with the apparatus will serve all the pur poses required. The Whlpp'.e will be equipped at the navy yard at League Island.
