Have finished boiling eighty-three tons of
Louisiana cane tonight. It made nearly
19,000 pounds of strike. A weighed por
tion run into centrifigual, gave o i per cent
of dried sugar. This will be more than
one hundred and twenty pounds of first
suspirpcr ton. The cane juice had ten per
cent of sucrose, one aud eight-tenths per
cent of glucok', and fourteen and a half
per cent of total solids. It
would have made only 80 pounds

the yield fully forty pounds per ton. The

This dispatch is regarded by the autho
rities at the agricultural depaitmeut as the
ftillfillment of the promise of important
results given by the first incomplete ex
periments in the difusion process applied to
sucar cane. The process was developed in
Emvpc for application in the manufacture
of beet sugar, aud has been several times
tried in this country upon the sugar cane,
but without decided success, owing to im
perfect machinery and the necessity of con
siderable modifications to uk 2t the differ
ence in the material to lie worked. In
1SS3 experiments in the new process were
begun on a small scale in Washington
upon sorghum, and after a time such a
measure of success was attained that t lie
commissioner determined to put the process
iu oiH?ratiou upon a larger scale and to this
cud a plant was established in connection
with a sorghum sugar making establish
ment at "Ottawa, Ivansas, and this season
the new process has lecn carried on under
the supervision of Prof. Wiley, with
marked succc?. Meanwhile the sugar
cine growers of Louisiana have become
deeply interested in the process and have
anxiously de-ired to learn whether it con Id
be madeapplieable to their product-. To
test the matter, the commissioner has de
cided to undertake tlu? experiment in
Louisiana upon a scale of sulticient magni
tude to determine its practicability, but as,

Treasurer Jordon said this afternoon
that the effect of the offer to prepay inter
est on the public debt would be to dis-
-tribute almost immediately 10,000,000
among about 2,000 banks and individuals
in every section of the county, and would,
in his opinion, be of great advantage to the
moving of crops and otiier branches of bus

only for the benefit of the business inter
at New York, has made a report to the
department in regard to the complaint of
Messrs. Weed, Payson & Co., against the
action of the United States appraiser at
New York in returnining as scoured don
skoi wools, wool which they claim is only
washed and also in making additions to t lie
entered value of such wools, where the
entered values without any additions, carry
the higest rates of duty imposed on wool
by the statutes as Assistant Secretary Fair
child in a letter on the subject says:
As estimated in departmentlctter to you
of September id, the qeestion as to whether
such wools are washed or scoured, is one
of fact, which must be determined by you
from the report of the appraiser, who is
required to make i careful examination and
report thereof, In forming his judgment
as to whether any particular importation of
wool is scoured or not, the appraiser may
have recourse to chemical analysis, com
mercial designation and to any other proper
source of information or mode of
determination with regard to the question
of value. The department concurs with
you, that in an opinion wherein such
cases as to w here wool is entered, as to
render it to be liable to the highest rate of
duty under the statute. The return of the
appraiser increasing the entered value more
than ten per cent need not carry with it the
imposition of the additional penal duty
within the meauing of section 29 of the re
vised statute.

Representative Wellborn of Texas, who
is one of the ablest and most experienced
paiiiamentarians in the houe, was asked
by an associated press reporter tod.ry what
eifect a contest over Mr. Carlisle's seat.
should there be a contest, would have upon
his candidacy for speakership of the house
Mr. Wellborn replied, such a contest would
furnish no reason whatever why Mr. Car
lisle bhould not be speaker in the Fiftieth
congress of the house of representatives,
unless otherwise, especially ordered by the
house, the speaker shall appoint at the com
mencement of each rongrcss the following
standing committee:
The list includes the committee on elec
tions and all the standing committees of
the house.
The rules of the present house cannot by
their own force fix methods of procccdure
in subsequent congresses. Nevertheless,
by unbroken usage, a new house as prelim
inary to its permanent organization adopts
the rules of" the prior house. Such, if I
take it right, will be the course in the next
house, aud the rule will thus control the
constitution of committees in the Fiftieth
congress. Should there be a contest over
Mr Carlisle's seat, the house itself will, in
some suitable way, select the committee
on appropriations, aud thus Mr. Carlisle
will be relieved of any possibility of em
barrassment on that score
To hold that Mr. Thebe's contest with
Mr. Carlisle disqualifies the latter for
speaker conduces to a result illogical and
absurd. If such a heeding were followed
the influence and power" of the chosen
leader of the Democratic party in the house
would be effectually crushed at any time
by springing a contested election, no mat
ter how absolutely void it mav be of mer

The Bucket Shops.
Chicago, Nov. 10. The attempt to sup
press the bucket shops and restore specula
tive trading to its former channels is being
imitated by a number of member of the
Hoard of Trade. The idea i to abolUh
the market reporting department of the
board, at leat temporarily. Without of
ficial quotations received over theUickers it
is claimed the bucket shops cannot secure
cnougli patronage to pay expenses. The
claim that by cutting" off all official
quotations the agent who m-ikIs
his orders to the large city bucket shops
aud be obliged to reconnect himself with
the regular broker. By the proposed plan
the tit ker service here would be dispensed
with in grain and provision speculation
and the present system of market report
from this citv b? discontinued.

A Boycott Issued by the Knights of
Labor Against Armour & Co.
Chicago, Nov. 10. General Fitzsim
mons, in command of the troops at the
stock yards, has requested that a company
of the First cavalry be sent to the yards.
It is thought they can render more effi
cient service in answering sudden alarms
than the infantry.
There was a busy scene at the town hall
and at the yards during the morning.
About five thousand of the old employes
of Armour & Co., Swift & Co. and the
Chicago Packing and Provision Co. con
gregated for the purpose of beiug paid off.
It was deemed more advisable to let
them get their pay there than to have it
done at the firm's office. Besides the
great throng of strikers there were thou
sands of their friends.
The crowd was a little more turbulent
than yesterday.
General Fitzsimtuons has an extra force
of men near the town hall to be ready In
case of any disturbance.
An afternoon paper says a boycott has
already been declared by" the general exec
utive board Knigh's of Labor. Said Barry
at noon today, it begins on Armour's meats
and other products. How far wc shall ex
tend it to other packers, 1 cannot say yet.
A large number of men applied for work
at the packing houses this morning, and
about live thousand men are at work.
Nelson Morris received a dispatch from
the east saying that some one down there,
whose name he would not give, w ill send
him 3,000 skilled butchers. About two
ihirds of the men at work in the yards arc
new hands. Militia guards were out as
usual and all approaches to the yards arc
liued with pickets.
There was a collission tonight near the
Ashland avenue bridge between a crowd of
strikers and a small squad of infantrymen.
The bridge was guarded by twelve ' men
from the Second infantry under Lieutenant
Milliau, the batillion of the company being
stationed in the vicinity of the neighboring
packing house. The crowd of striken
and sympathizers numbered about 500 and
was "determined to prevent the packing
house employes from crossing the
bridge on their way back to
the city after their day's work.
The crowd was charged by the squad
'-even times and forced to retreat temporari
ly, but increasing numbers added to its
piesistency aud a serious conflict seemed
eminent. Finally Lieutenant McMillian
gave the order to load with ball cartridges.
The crowd thereupon speedly dispersed
and the employes went on their way with
out further molestation. No one suffered
serious iniury.
The packers arc fighting in a body,
we aie not going to scatter our fire,"
Mr. Barry, of the K. of L., today,
are iroincr to take tnem one by one,
' Ik-
continued, "and see what the determined
efforts of 2,000,000 workingmen- ccn ac
complish." "Do you mean that a boycott is to be di
rected against Armour"
"Well, wc like to fight abig man, and,
as I said before, the fijjht which has al
ready begun will be against the packers,
one at a time"
The packers association held a prolonged
meeting with closed doors this crenmg,
and after much talking, adopted resolu
tions which is to be a complete backdown
from their expiestcd determination to
bring organized labors from employment
iu the Chicago stock yards. None of th?
packers would talk about the meeting.
Tlicv answered all questions in monosylla
bles!' Mr, Baldwin, secretary of the asso
ciation, said that the resolutions meant
just what they said, and that the packers
meant to run their business w. ithout the
dictation of the Knights of Labor. The
resolutions are as follows.
Whereas, At a meeting of packers he'd
ontheSth in-t., resolutions were passed
concerning the relations between their em
ploves and labor organizations.
hereas, We are convinced that raid
action being unintentional injustice upon

cordance with the mutual inten&ts of both
emplover and employed, to-wit:
Whereas, the packers are confronted
with the fact that their employes are re
peatedly Itaving their employment witliout
notice and to the irrcat detriment of their

Of More Importance.
New York, Nov. 10. The Eveuivg
Post says: While great prominence has
been given by the press throughout the
covntry to the labor troubles in" Chicago,
comparatively little attention has hcen paid
by the public at large to the strike now go
ing on in this state, which involves a
many people and as much capital, and a
principal of vital importance. This is the
contest in progress hetween the knit oods
manufacturers and the Knights of Labor,
which has now become an open war upon
the latter as an organization. Though the
most conspicuouslacts in the warfare have
been noted from time to time, but few
persons have a. clear idea of the nature of
the controversy, or realize that nearly 20,
000 men, women and children were em
ployed in the knit goods mills throughout
N.w York state, wrhieh the owners have
closed asrainst all ICnishts of Labor. A
long interview with one acquainted with
the history of the fight, then follows in
It is that within the pait tw o years the
Knights of Labor have been actively or
ganizing the knit goods employees, and
that as fast as they became organized they
began to subject the manufacturers to petty
annovanccs m the way ot demands toucn
ing "the conduct of their business, aud
that fiualiy the manufacturer in self de
fense were compelled to form an associa
tion which embraces the 59 mills of this
state and of SO per cent of the trade in the
country. The first straggle aro-e at Coheea,
over the question, whether or not manu
facturers should be allowed to dischiirge
any employee they might sec fit. The
issue was joined by" the manufacturers de
claring a lock o'ut at the end of five
weeks, T. B. Barry of the general exe
cutive board of "Knight of Labor,
and Mr. Speard, president of the manufac
turers' association, signed a contract tun
ning to December 1 conceding the condi
tions of the mill owners, and work was re
sumed. The present trouble originated in
Amsterdam, where a member of the
Knights of Labor was promoted to a new
aud hitherto unoperated jack in the pjn
ningroom. The spinners union, an inside
organization of the Kufchts of Labor, ob
jected. The proprietors said they would
let the machine Le idle. The spinners de
manded a promise that a member of their
union should be" put on if the
jack should be started at any time iu the
future. This was refused and the spinners
struck, thereby clo-ing the mills. The
other Amsterdam mills decided to stand by
the mill in'the trouble and a lockout fol
lowed. Mr. Barry declared the strike un
iust. but was unable to put an end to it.
though the mills were thrown open to thoj-e
who wanted to return to wonc from Ucto
her 1 to 9. The employes not returning, it
was ordered that all the mills in the state
declare a lockout October 10, and it wa.
done. Since then the mills have been grad
ually filling up with non-union men and
one "local assembly of the K. of L. has
thrown up its charter. Two mills on the
other hand have yielded. Messrs. Balk-y
and McGuire; of the executive board, Jmw

the mill owners refuf to treat with them.
