dre/i KepubJicaos sat down to n Jove *
feast in tbo big Mechanics' Hall this rj
evening. ?ho galleries about tire ball /
were crowded with several thousand a
more, while the air was alive with en- ^
thuaiaam. Governor MclCinley, of a
Ohio, was on the speaker's platform, g
and he looked like a man of victor}'. f
Tom Reed, of Maine, was there also, F
sod at his side was Governor-elect a
< .reenbalge, of Massachusetts. Gov- t
ornor Taller, of Vermont, and Congress- S
man Cousins, of Iowa, were there.
Collector Beard, the old Republican v
war horse of Massachusetts, was pres- B
oat, and by his side sat the venorable p
.Senator Hoar. Thomas N. Hart, ex- ?
postmaster of Boston and Republican p
candidate for the mayor of Boston, also J,
sat at the table reserved for tho princi- jf
pal guests, and President Bent, of the r'(
Home Market Club, was tho centro of e
them all. After tho dinner President
Rent opened tho speech-making; with a ?
brief address. Tie then introduced .3
Senator George F. Hoar as tho lirst J,
speaker. Mr. lloar said: tj
'I don't think just now that there is a
any occasion for the Home Market Club t|
to disband. There is plenty of work for ^
them to do. Tho nariv that is in power f,
is opposed to everything like good gov- j]
eminent and opposed to every princi- ^
pie upon which the happiness of the e
employer or employe depend. a
'Tliero are certain principles that the
Republican party stands by, whether in
victory or in defeat. Wo believe that
the government is a failure unlessevery ni
mau receives a reasonable cow Dene a- Lj
lion for his labor. Wo took this country
thirty-two years ago, its flair dishonored, M
jm bonds below par, its credit almost ?
L'one, treason and revolution rampant
in twelve states out of thirty-one, and ?
we left it at tho hoight of prosperity. ?
Kicht abort months of Democratic rule, J*
tlje apprehension of three years more i(
of Democratic rulo, has brought us to "
our present condition, it is tho duty |!
of the Home Market Club to do its ut- l.
most to bring its country back." J1
(Jovornor-elect Froderic L. Green- p
liaise then spoke as follows: y
''One of the chiof ends and aims of 11
government is to give so far as govern- 0
rnont may give security and prosperity fl
to ovory homo in tho land. And day by
day we'aro nearing th point where ap- J
parently conflicting interests and rights jj
are to bo brought in just and luiruioni- ^
ous relatione. You cannot accept tiie c
cwy maxim 'to buy in the cheapest and j(
to sell iu the dearost market' until you ?
have arranged to pay Uio running ex- ?
penses of your business and make a tair (l
adjustment, of thoso expenses. One of j
tho first step" toward giving security t
and prosperity to the homo is to givo t.

Governor William McKinley, of d
Ohio, was received with clamorous ap- c!
plause, which shook the great hall to J,
its foundation. He said: r<
"This year in Massachusetts, as in s<
I >bioj politics was businoss and business n
was politics, ana united they tri- T

noss resta upon confidence and cor- b

to tnoet the wants of mankind. While J
tile wants of mankiud aro tho great fac- ci
tor in our industrial prosperity, tho ti
ability to gratify theao wants is osseu- ci
lial. The manufacturer makos cloth bo- sc

"The common expression that tho

On the Knight* of Labor?Only Odb of HIr
Nominee* for th? Executive Board Elected?A
Deadlock on tlio Other*. Philadelphia,
Pa., Nov. il.?General
JIastor Workman Powdcrly backed
water in the session of the general assembly
of the Knights of Labor this j
morning and ondeavored to placate the
strong opposing forces by presenting a (
new list of delegates from among whom
four would be chosen to the general
executive board.
The men he named to-day wore: John
Dcwlin, Detroit; A. \Y. Wright,Canada;
Hugh Cavanaugh, Cincinnati; John
Costello, Pittsburgh; X. B. Jlaguire,
New York; J. P. Duncan, Indian Territory;
J. H. Kobertson, Arkansas, and P.
H. Quinn, Rhode Island. With the exception
of the first three, the names
wero all new.
The entire tiwo of tho session was
taken up in discussing the named and
warm speechos wero made for and
against each candidate. Most of the
men were favorable to Mr. Powderiy, '
but several of tiiuin suited tho Hayes a
faction. t
The afternoon session was more than
usually interesting. After Mr. Powderiy
had been made to recognize tho posi- t
tion his brother knights had been t
brought to bear upon him, he neverthe- c
Ices endeavored to have bis list looked
upon with favor.
Ballotting for tho now general oxccu- 1'
tive boaru commenced early in tho c
afternoon. V. K .McGuire, of Now t
York, was the only one of the new nominees
who succeeded in gotting enough
votes to elect him. Ballot after ballot f
was taken for the remaining sevon men fc
but no result was reached. The elec- E
tion had to be declared suspended until .
to-morrow morning. After adjourn- 1
ment thero was a great gathering of jj
claimants, and the name of each nom- ,
inee was presented in the most effective J
manner. This was kept up even during F
the dinner hour and at tho reception at 1
Knights of Labor headquarters.
It is said by those on the inaido that 0
if peace could be declared for a abort H
time between the hostile factious the
aliairn of the order might be bettor T
looked after. A delegate fluid to-night: J
"There is entirely too much personality c
displayed by both Mr. 1'owderly and jMr.
liayea in this assembly, and my 1
idea ia that if thoy would discontinue
their personalities for a time we could J
do more and better business. 1

Tho men begin to roalize this for the j,

of the Bill,
New York, Nov. 24?Tho Herald't
Vashineton correspondent says ho is
ible to send an accurate outline ot tho
uriO bill as far aa determined.
The froo list will include nearly all
he raw and crudo materials which en
or into manufacture. Wools, hair,
amel and coat, bituminous coal iron
re, lumber, salt, silver, lead ore, flax,
teinp and jute and a largo numbor of
homicals will all bo free of duty when
ho now bill takes effect.
This will ho the chiof benefit to manuacturers
afforded by the new measure,
tut they will also get tho benofit, in a
tumber of cases of an extension of time
row three to six months to work oil
^cumulated stocks beforo the reduced
luties on finished products take eftoct.
?hia will be true of woolen goods and
irobably of manufactures of linen. It
a doubtful if any discrimination of this
orfc ia mado in regard to manufactures
f iron, which will havo to submit to
ome considerable cuts.
The specific duties on bottles, glussvare
and plate glass may possibly be
etained. but they will be decidedly reluccd,
and plato glass in likely to bo
iut at a uniform and ad valorem rate of
orty per cent.
Steel rails will probably be put at $8
r $9 u ton. Kails will be one of tho
l'w articles on which a specific duty
rill be retained. Pig iron will probacy
bo put at fivo por cent ad valorom,
? in Jlin lnit PnhnrrnDfl otirl
>ar iron will be reduced at least fifty
ior cent.
Tin plate will bo charged one cent
ior pound, and increased imports are
ounted upon to make the revenue
learly great as under the present duty
{two and two-tenths cents.
Tho specific duties on cutlory will be
bolished, and an ad valorem duty be
Block tin trill ro back on tbo froo list,
rbere it was before ths enactment of
be McKinley bill, and copper ore will
dIIoit it upoii the same list.
A uniform ad valorem duty will bo
mposod upon finished manufactures of
rood, but logs will be free.
The textile schodulos will not sufler
<uito so much as china and metals, for
here will be a few duties.
ibo toxtile schedules will not sutler
uite so much as the china and metals,
jr there will be few duties, if any,
iieher than 40 per cent advalorem.
pacific duties and compensatory duties
rill almost universally be wiped out.
'he committee bolieves that n deduct- '
m of 5 or 10 per cent in tho silk duties
rill yield as much revenuo as at Dres- \
nt. Woolen goods will follow substanially
hte.rates of the Springer bill, but

L/IIIU ?? mo vuuajiei ^uuug, us^Dwiaiij
loth, will ba put in a separata class at
0 per cent. Tho rate on nearly all
lanufactures of cotton will be 40 per
ent. This will include hosiery. Manfactures
of flax, hemp and jute will be
reatly reduced in view of the placing
f the raw material on tho free list,
iinding twino is likely to be made free
f duty. Tho hi eh duties imposed on
grictiltural products will be merciless- .
r slashed. A duty will be retained on .
smona and oranges, but several other ,
ruita will go upon the free list. The
uty on wrapper tobacco will be reuced
to $1 00, or $1 50 per pound when
nstemmod, and 50 cents more per
ound when stemmed.
An adratorem rate of 25 per cent will
robably bo fixed on all grades of euear,
(though this is one of the questions
till open. The poorer grades of sugar
omo in at a lower fleure. The duty on
loves will be roducod. Tho internal
avenue features of the bill are subLantially
agreed upon, exeopt the form
f the income tax. There will be no
urease on beer or tobacco or cigars,
he only change will be on whiBky.
The additions to the free list will
nuse considerable losses of rovenuo,
nd while reductions of duty are
ounted upon to produce increased irnorts,
this eflect may not appear for a
ear or two. Tho proposed duty on
ugar will bring in about $30,000,000
nd it is thouzbt that some $30,000,000
r $40,000,000 will be needed from the
icreaao in the whisky taxes and from
lie income tax.
An Associated Press dispatch says:
'he Democratic members of the ways
nd means committee are experiencing j
luch difficulty in their endeavors to j
ompleto the new tarifl bill and have it
oady for submission to their Republian
colleagues at the meetine of tho full
ommittee on Monday next. There is
till considerable difference of opinion
1 tho committee upon certain items of
ho bill, and at this stage the details of
he internal revenue schednle and the
ncome tax provisions are yet incomlete
and somewhat indefinite. Indeed
trons influence lias been brought to
oar within the last forty-eight hours
3 induce tho committee to abandon alogcther
tho income tax provisions, bat
lie position of Messrs. McMillin, Bryan,
Vbitlngand others has been so roaolute s
a favor of this policy that it appears '
mpossible for the committee to abanon
the income tax fully without hope- '
jHsly dividing the Democratic party. '
uch action on tho part of tho coin- 1
littee would result in a minority re- '
ort being presented to the house.
It seems probable, however, that the I
icotno tux provision wilt not bo of that !
ireoping character that was at first ;
ontemplated. Tho present plans aro
7 imnoso a tax on legacies, on incomes <
1 lar^e corporations, on tho incomes of J['
real ostato and other property in this
country owned or controlled by aliens,
as well as to require tbe stamping of
cortaln documents and a special license
of certain classes of business. The 1
members freely admit to-day that the
details of tbo income tax provision will
be last agreed npon.
As tho work of the committee nears a
close the pressure of tho various industries
likely to bo affected for some information
of the charactor of tbe measure,
or tor a hearing in protest against
the contemplated legislation becomes
more and more intense. Mostoftbem,
however, aro unsuccessful in getting the
ear of Chairman Wilson or any other of
the mombers of the committee, as tho
sessions aro held behind closed doors,
and tho officers of tbe committee are instructed
to permit no cards to be handed
in. Considerable feeling was to-day
engendered among some ni the gontleraen
desiring to bo heard by tho facility
with which Isador Strauss and his
brother and partner in business from
Now York succeeded in entering the sacred
presence of the committee.
The snb-cominittee on intornal revonn?

labors Bomo time to-morrow night. No

in tho internal rovenuo tax on tobacco

bo a slight increase in the whisky tux.

Washington, D. C., Istov. 24.?If
President Cleveland is disturbed over
the Hawaiian situation he did not show
it to-day. At the close of a long cabinet
meeting Secretary Lamont remained
with him for some time. Then Secretary
Gresbam callod and remained a
short time.
After hia departuro, tho President
and Mrs. Cleveland camo down stairs
and entered a carriage to enjoy a drivo
in the crisp air.
There has been a genoral boliof that
tho Prosident would discuss tho Hawaiian
question in his message, and
more intoro3t than ever has been manifested
in the document on this account.
No news can bo expected from Hawaii
until after tho messago is sent to Congress,
and it was thought in discussing '
tho matter the President would neces- J
sarilv refer to the instructions that had j
Doon given Minister ??iiua ana iniorin
Conpross of what ho expected had taken S
place in tho islands in viow of tho in- I
But it was stated at tho whito houso *
that this niattor can easily bo avoided J
by an allusion to tho Hawaiian attair in *
tho regular meswge, with tho state- 1
rnent that it will bo treated iu a special 1
message 011 the subject to be submitted
when further and expected information
has been received. This being the (
case, those who aro awaiting a direct
statomont of tho policy of tho administration,
further than which lias been t
officially aunouncod in tho lotter of r
Secretary Grosham to the Prosident, i
will bo disappointed. *
It was hoped that after the cabinet
meeting Secretary Gresham would con- j.
sent to givo out some additional in- c
formation on Hawaii, but whon seen
after tho meeting by a number of nows- r
paper mon bo said that ho had no news l
to givo out, and seemed to resent even ?
an inference that ho had any information.
There is good reason for belicv- c
ing that tho dispatch received by tho c
steamer Alamoda was considered at tho c
cabinet meeting to-day.
The consideration seemed to have ^
resulted in a determination not to on- f(
lighten tho public any further on what ^
it is proposed to do in Honolulu or
what has already been done, but to
allow it to wait upon the regular means
at communication. 1
The impression in the minds o! those
about the stato department who have
not actual information as to the depart- j,
tuent's secrets is deepening into a conviction
that souie day during tho past 8
week was the time agreed upon for the t
execution of the instructions .Minister ?
Willis carriod to Honolulu with him. s
It is recalled that tho special com- a
tnissioners who came to this country v
after the revolution last January to i
propose annexation came in a char- s
Sored steamer. It costs $5,000 to $6,000 p
to make the trip. Steamers are avail- s
ible at Honolulu if any one has tho ft
money and disposition to make tho s
trip. It is possible news may be re- a
;eivod by such means before the next e
iteamor arrives at Auckland on Decom- p
3er7 or at Victoria on the tlth.
It has devoloped that the dispatches r
receivod by the state department from ji
Hawaii havo been in the navy depart- ?
uent cipher, as has been generally supposed.
It will bo romomberod that llr. r
Blount's instructions wore to uso tho e
aavy department cipher when he do- ti
iircd. and that he could avail himself of o
the kindness of Admiral Skorrott to a
transmit a dispatch. '
It docs not appear that Mr. Blount b
used the navy cipher while bo was in q
Honolulu, and it is supposod he was g
mwilting to entrust to Admiral Sker- >
rett the information and ideas ho was u
lending to Washington. It is uow bo- a
lieved that Minister Willis' dispatches e
lave come in tho regular state depart- I
Dent cipher. C
