A call has gone forth to the trade
unions and public for a labor convention
in Chicago next Monday. The ostensible
objects are to take measures in aid of the
miners on tArike, and to offset the sweep
ing iowcrs of the courts In grunting iu
Junctiona in defiance of popular rights
during labor disputes.
These objectsare very commendable, and
worthy the active practical support of
every trade unionist and of every lover
or his lellowman.
liut conditions have somewhat changed

Tills week fully 75,000 miners have gone
to work on terms fixed Jointly by the
miners and 6i;cralors, and which, give a
decided increase In wages and grant
practical recognition to the United Mine
Workers of America as an organized
body. On the 21ht lnstaiiD the strike was
generally ended, except in Vcit Virginia,
a few points in western Pennsylvania, and
a itortion of Illinois. It is the greatest
victory gained by trades "unions in years.
It was won against the combined power
of wealth, judicial usurpation., and in
From the beginning or the contest twelve
weeks ago the American Federation of
Labor and the trades unions of the
whole land have been in the fore front
with money and men to back the miners.
Thousands of dollars went out geiieroutJy
from the trades unions, aud zealous union
men gave their services freely to this
noble cause. A liberal public, too, gave
no inconsiderable uhare of help in various
ways. Ail through this struggle the minora
in their manly diguity displayed no brutish
violence; their forbearance and disci
pline are at once the wonder and ad
miration of our age.
The American federation of LaSr, be
lieving only in practical methods, has to
day decided to continue its .support with
organizers and money until a complete
victory for the miners is won. To this
cad it calls on its unions and on the
public to not halt in their full aud un
measured aid to this worthv movement.
Many families still need support, and
money will be required for some time to
come, until the miners are more fully at
work aud able to help themselves. Let
the trade unions be lltieral in their do
nations until this struggle is crowned
with complete success.
We can see no need for the labor con
vention in Chicago next Monday. We ad
vise our unions not to be represented
there. Tin money it would cost to send
delegates had better go to help the
suffering miners and their families. It
is not by conventions with irresponsible
talk, inflammatory declamation aud revolu
tionary buncombe that the cau of labor
can be advanced. Violent appeals to the
passions of the multitude can serve no
good purpose. It is only bv systematic
organization of the workiug people in
trades unions, with united liearts and
united iuuds. aud a fraternity of purpose
which knows no bounds or creed, color,
nationality or politics, that will uplift
Trades unions are not the promoters
of social disorder or the upholders of riot
or revolution. Our course is along the
lines of peace and historical orderly de
velopment. We are law-abiding citizens,
and if the law or its administration at
times is against us, we are confident that
an enlightened public opinion will ulti
mately correct the wrong. Hence we here
make appeal to all fair-minded mold era
of public tliought, to our public men, to
the clergy and the pres to take a de
cided stand henceforth with us, agaiubt
the unfair and unconstitutional use of
judicial injunctions, which arc wholly sub
versive of popular liberty.
We further urge the citizens of our en
tire country to rise unitedly at the polls
in every State and elect men to make and
administer our laws who will root out aud
make forever impossible those new forms
of judicial tyranny and political pliancy
which now prevail In the service of cor

resolutions proposed by the friends of

The vote on the resolutions was then
taken unci resulted 225 to 180, showing
that even many or those who favored

be submitted to the full membership of the
The preamble and resolutions adopted
are as follows:
Whereas Columbia Typographical Union,
No. 101, having for so many years felt the
baneful effects of the old '-spoils sys
tem" or appointments aud discharges
in the Government Printing Office, and
believing that it would prove bene
ficial to its membership, to the Govern
ment service and to the cause of true
unionism to have the classified service
extended to said Government Printing
Whereas, at a well-attended and thor
oughly representative meeting of said
Columbia Typographical Union, No, 101, a
resolution was adopted by a large and em
phatic mnjority, requesting the President
or tne united states to extend the classi
fied service to the said Government Print
ing OfHce, and
Whereas our membership, having wit
nessed the rieucfictal results of said classi

Government Printing Ofrice, both to the
cause of unionism and the good of our
membership, ns welt as to the benefit;
Of the Government service, which senti
ment was recently attested when, by an
overwhelming majority, the union, at a
chapel election, at which the full mem
bership had an opportunity of voting their
honest convictions, did emphatically ex-
piess its most hearty approval of and con
fidence in the policy of civil service, and
by a vote of 767 to 378, the union ex
pressed its condemnation of and declared
as unauthorized by, and unjust to, its
membership, the action of three of tho
delegates from our union to the convention
of the International Typographical Union,
at Colorado Springs, when they voted for
a resolution in that convention condemning
tho classified service as applied to tho
Government Printing Office; and
Whereas Columbia Tyjxigrapnical Union,
No. 101, having thus frequently and em

members of this union, who, at the meet

resolution purporting to represent the
sentiment of thq Urjlonv.wherejiy the
union's former position on civil hcrvlce
was supposed to be reversed, said reso

part of a few df its members at any

or the large majority of the membership
to reverse the "position of the union on
any matter, and especially a matter like
this one, where the union has so recently

IS SEVERE ON STAXWORTH.
Mr. Roosevelt's Cuu.stic Comments
on u Xaval Officer.
The Navy Department published yester
day Its report In the case ot Lieut. C. S.
Stanworth, of the Navy, who had been
tried before a court-martial Tor being so
Intoxicated as to be kept from duty on
board his ship, the Adams, lust June
The lieutenant got off on a technicality
and a'tnough the board was directed piac
tically to reverse Its decision, it stood
by its affirmation.
Commenting on, these conditions, Mr.
Roosevelt in the report says:
"The court clearly erred in this case,
in the first instance in sustaining the
plea of the accubed ih bar of trial, and
again in refusing to correct its error when
pointed out by the department. It is dif
ficult to understand the display of ob
stinacy or obtundlty thus presented, in
asmuch as the court thereby assumes to
put itff own interpretation of precedents
and decisions originally established and
rendered by the department above tho
interpretation placed thc-reon by the de
"For the failure of Justice which there
upon nncurs, and the injury which the
discipline of the service must necessarily
suffer at the hands of those to whom
it Is entrusted; and by whom it should
be most zealously guarded, the court is
responsible The fact that an officer,
presumably giiilty of a very serious orrense,
has, by the (drained and illogical con
struction adopted by, the court in thia.case,
escaped ptmisl.iijent. while a grave matter,
is ot less consequence than the pcrmunem
injury which would, result to the service
should the deportment allow the action
of this court to stupd aa a precedent, and
sanction tint.-? be placed upon the admis
sion into naval jurisprudence of pleas
in bar Of trial of thp character advanced
in this instance. The action of the court
in sustaining Lieut.. Stanworth's plea Is,
"Tinning from, the, action of the court
to that of the .officer concerned, it l
sufficient to say, irepeetive of tho legal
aspects ot the ti.-niter, that by shiuldiug
himself behind. .a technical plea Lieut.
S&mwotlh has practically admitted h
ullt. The case of an officer of the
Nay who Is obliged to admit, by a plea
of this character, that he does not deem
it prudent to submit the question of his
guilt or innocence of iv grave charge
to the Judgment of a court-martial is
"Tt is wise thut an officer should re
flect, belore declining to face charges
preferred against him, that although he
may, a; in this instance, through the error
of the court, by the Interposition of a
purely technical pica, based upon In
substantial grounds, succeed in escaping
punishment for a gross offense, In must, by
such an not, necessarily imperil his
standing with thcosrvic; at large and the
Department, and leave upon his record
a stain which Is all the more unfortunate
because the precise nature and degree of
his offense is never judicially determined."
KSTATJS OF THOMAS WARD.
Frieiidl.y Stilt, nt Equity to Deter
mine Its True Value.
The beneficiaries under the last will
of the late Thomas M.D. Ward are hav
ing considerulie trouble over the distribu
tion of the property. Besides Margaret
Ellen Word, the -laughter or Mr. Ward,
there were several friends and several
colored churches, colleges and other In
stitutions mentioned in tho testament.
Among them Payne's Theological Semi
nary, Wilberforce University, Paul Quiim
College, Mot-rip Brown College and Ed
waid Waters' College.
In settling the estate the executor, Mr.
Abraham Grant, has had much difficulty
In its apportionment, the amount of the
indebtedness of Mr. Ward being larger
than was at first believed and provided.
A friendly suit at equity was entered
yesterday by Mr. Grant against the vari

house and four acres of reaL estate at

believed, must be divided to secure an

Another horrible case of relonious as-,
sault, brutal In its nature and serious, If
not fatal, In its results, upon an eight-year-old
girl, was brought to light by the po
lice of the Eighth precinct. The name ot
the little victim is withheld by the pollco
.md her attending physician. She is, how
ever, said to bo a bright and intelligent
Italian jrirl, the daughter of a prosper

Her assailant Is an Italian,
Benjamiue Nunsio, well educated and a
music-teacher and manufacturer of stringed

The assault occurred September 11.
Nunsio is about thirty-five years old and
unmarried. For some time he boarded
In the family of the little Italian girl
whose parents live in the Eighth precinct,
beyond Florida avenue. He was In the
habit of playing nights until late at
parties, balls, nud downtown resorts,' anl
consequently slept during the day.
On the day of the assault the father
of the child was away attending to his
business, and the mother had gone out
for a short time, leaving the child playing
about the house.
Nunsio awoke during the afternoon and
called down stairs, asking the little one
to bring him up a glass of water. She
readily complied, and upon entering the
room, Nunsio asked her who was down
stairs. Upon learning that no one was
at home, he arose and, after shutting
and locking the door, criminally assaulted

Chinatown wan honored lat night as it
never was before In the history of the
settlement. An event happened that will
be long remembered by Washington's laun
drymen and merchants.
Wu Tins-Fang, tbe.Chlnesc minister, hiu
sen and his attorney and secretary, Shea
Tang, cousin of LI Hung Chang, paid' a
long visit to the colony in the vicinity ot
Pennsylvania avenue and Four-anu-a-hiuf

minister hs ever visited a Chinese shop
keeper beruro, in this city. According to
Chinese liquet and usages the visit was a
most remarkable condescension.
The Chinese minister and his party left
the legation nnd rode down to Fouc-and-a-bair
street on the cable cars.
They reached Chinatown at 8:30, and

street. The proprietor of the
place, Moy Docn, greeted them with pre
found and reverent salaams and exchanged
broad and joyous smile.
'iiire was some attempt at conversation
but it was mostly a failure. The Chinese
spoken by tl-e minister and that of Moy
Doon are two very different languages.
Except for thia little difficulty every
thing was serene. Signs were passed
between them signifying the Intense pleas

of the minister, and the perfect willingness
of Minister Wu to give Mr. Doon the

At the jtore of Quong Sang Lung the
minister was so extremely democratic astu

equally complaisant, making himself very
much at home aud partaking of choice
confections and refreshments with grace
and seemingly large enjoyment.
Minister Wu left Chinatown with a smil
