GOOD WOIID FOB GRANT. The National German-American Alliance in biennial convention at Cincinnati.! last Monday di-cus-ed reports of various committees. The Peace Committee, in setting forth the principles of the alliance with reference to the Universal peace movement of the world, de clares in favor of a federation of all nations, based on a mutual guaran tee of their independence and pos sessions and against attacks of the rrmnbers. The committee favors the fur therance of all international agree ments, treaties and conventions which will establish uniform legis lation tending to the welfare of the working classes and improvement of social, commercial and industrial conditions in general, and the sub stition of legal proceedings in place of bloodshed ,n settling dissensions between nations and between em ployes and employers. The convention voted down a res olution condemning Gener.il Pred Grant for marching in United States Army uniform at the head of a tem perance parade in Chicigo. Pre vailing arguments were that Gen eral Grant marched in his personal capacity only, and that "he is not a fanatic, as he advocates the useful ness of the canteen for the army." A resolution asking the Govern ment not to pass legislation cur tailing well-meaning immigration was adopted. It wa. held the Gov ernment should belter distribute immigrants over the country. A resolution calling on the alli ance to contribute to the support of German private schools was de feated, on the ground that the or ganization members did enough for the cause of education by paying taxes for public schools, and that the alliance would use its influeiKe to maintain the teaching of the German language in the public schools. The convention voted unanimously to invite the German Protestmt associations of the Unit ed States to join the alliance. GRAND JURY REPORT. The Grand Jury ha 1 a busy time last week.
