National Aaioclatloa of Clear Mann'actnr. era in Seaalon at Chicago. Chicago, May 15. President John H. Brown, of Detroit, called the annual convention of the National Association of Ci;rar Manufacturers to order' at 11 o'clock, this morning. One hundred and fifty delegates were present The annual output represented by the factories of the firms from which the delegates were selected is about 1.5C0, 000,000 cigars, or one-third of the total product of the country. Most ot this morning's ses sion was consumed in the appointment of committees. It is the general Impression among the clgarmakers here that the manu facturers' association intends to cut wages. It is known that they now think the men are receiving too much money. Hand made cigars are now . paid for at the rate of from $1(1 per 1,000 up and mold cigars from $7 up. If the cut comes it will probably precipitate a big strike all over the country, and the men are but poorly prepared to resist the manu facturcrs in a bi? strike. THE KOYVI. ARCANUM.

Underwood Begardlng Commander Thayer's Proteet. Chioaoo, May 15. So many state ments have gone abroad in other eities than Chicago aa a result of Department Commander Thayer's recent letter to the Massachusetts O. A. B., protesting against the proposed dedication of the confederate monument at Oukwoods cemetery Memorial dap, that many persons deeply Interested in the event believe a part of the public has been led to misconstrue the significance of the ceremonies to be performed. Oen. Underwood, commander of the divi sion of the north, United Confederate Veterans, deemed it advisable to issue a letter defining his position. Tha let ter, which is addressed "To the citi zens of the United States, a reunited people of one nation," says in part: "The permission to erect a monu ment over the remains of 0,009 south em soldiers in Oukwoods cemetery was granted by the secretary ot war. Ac cordingly a fund was raided, two thirds of which has been contributed by oitlzens of Chicago, and the monu meut as' it stands was erected under direct provision of the- permit that emanated from the war department Last Decoration day a number of O. A. R. posts joined with the confederate camp in the memorial exercises and profusely decorated the confederate graves with . northern flowers the southern men returning the courtesy In memorial ceremonies by decorating the graves of the union soldiero in tha same cemetery. On . that occasion Maj. H. O. Purinton, commander of Columbia post, No. 70o, O. A. R-, sug' gosted that the monument bo dedi cated the next Decoration day, May 30, 1893, that O. A. R. veterans, because ot its being a holiday, might attond and take part in the ceremony. The holiday feature of the day applying as well to my own command, that day was selected, without any thought or intention of infringing upon a prerog ative of the O. A. K. "I am the recipient of a letter from Lieut. -Uon. John M. Schoneld, com manding the United States army, and an indorsement on the back of his photograph by Gon. Thomas O. Law ler, commander-in-chief of the O. A. R., each commending the monumenting of the remains of iby dead comrades. I will be in command during the dedica tion of the confederate monument on the morning of May 30 next, and know in advance that neither an unpatriotic sentiment nor disloyal word will be uttered, and I will personally see that the stars and stripes are alone gl ven to the breeze on that occasion."

Commissioner Wright Noting the Ef fect of Machinery on Labor. DIVORCES AT WASHINGTON. The National Capital Becoming s Great ' Beeort for DlaaatlaBed Married Far. Mas A Raoaor About Hew War Secretary. Washisotom, May 15. The eham piona of conflicting currency views are likely to find much, valuable material in tha report upon which the depart ment of labor is at work regarding the effects of machinery upon labor. The report was ordered by a special reso lution of tha last session, and Labor Commissioner Wright has already made a number ot preliminary In quiries and set his agenta to gathering material. He has prepared questions which will roduce the results to sim ple comparisons in time and money. A unit of production is to be taken, like a hat, a dozen pairs of shoes or a bolt of elotb ef substantially the same character and quality, at different dates and different establishments, and it is proposed to determine the amount of time taken by hand labor and the amount paid for the labor, and the amount of trm'sv taken in tending machinery and the amount paid in producing the. same results. The data will be obtained from a great number of establishments and great variety of articles, so that the figures ot time and cost will be put In comparative columns to indi cate the saving due to machinery. It wages have risen while the cost of the product has fallen, it is thought it will go far to support the theory of the be ' Havers in the gold standard that the fall in prices of commodities is due to Improved methods of production rather than the scarcity of gold. Mr. Wright will not undertake to discuss these problems in, this report, but tha report will form an arsenal from which students of the subject can draw effective weapons. He is glad it has been ordered by congress, because the present transition stajo is favorable for comparing hand and ma chine labor. Many articles are now manufactured by hand in certain lo calities which are manufactured by machinery in the great centers of In dustry, and from which hand labor Is likely soon to disappear. There are great advantages, in the opinion of Mr. Wright, in being able to make the in vestigation while both methods are In use, instead of being obliged to rely for data regarding hand labor upon written documents and tho recollcs tions of old employe! Dlvoroes at Washington. Washington, May 15. Washington will soon be qualified to take place with Sioux Falls and Chicago in the faoility with which divorces are grant ed. The district's laws are such as to make this the most desirable place to secure a divorce, as there is absolutely no publicity connected with a divorce or petition in Washington. The papers are never (riven out to tho public, and the fact of filing the divorce is in fact withheld from the usual channels of news. After the divorce Is granted, the only information procurable Is the bare aetlon of the court In conse quence many are coming to Washing ton to procure divorces. For severul years the divorces grantod in Wash ington have been out of all proportion to the number of people living here, and it will not be long before the courts will do better business in di vorces than the marriage license clerk in Issuing licenses. Omhwalte for War Secretary. Washixotox, May 15. Another cabl net rumor is floating about Washing' ton. It eomes from friends of ex-Con- zressman Outhwaite. Secretary La ment is to resign, so the story goes, and Mr. Outhwaite is to be put at the head of the war department Mr. Outhwaite was chairman of the mili tary committee of the house in the last congress and shortly after the ad journment was given a place on the fortifications board, an ofllce paying 5,000 a year. Not much credit is given to the rumor here. A Joker Shut Deao. Gutiiwe, Ok., May 15. It is reported here from Perkins that two young men decided to have some fun by holding up and scaring a traveling medicine vender who went under the name of Dr. Wild Jack. As ho came along the road they sprang out and ordered him to hold up his bands. Instead of get ting scared, he pulled a revolver and shot one of them dead and the other one only saved hlmsolf by taking to his heels and plunging into the bushes. Omaha aitll.U Men Do Nobly.
