suddenly occuircd blowing tiro In every
direction Tho utmost confusion pre
vailed tho pilot taking advautago of her
heading turned her toward the shore but
the Haines caused him to abandon his
post before tho stageplank could bo low
ered The current then turned tho boats
bow out Into the river and her stern
swung closo to tho bank which afforded
tho means of escape for those wlio wero
at that end of tho boat Tho stageplnnk
was lowered Mid many wcro placed
upon It mostly women and
children who would havo been
saved had not tbo smokestack fallen
squarely across It and all who wero not
killed by It were drowned The boat
drifted 200 yard a out Into tho river and
across to the Illinois sboro and sunk Tho

J J llanlon tbo second pilot of tho
La Mascotte says s Tho sttamer Eagle
was near us when tbo disaster occurred
and could have pushed us ashore with
out gmuch trouble ot danger but I un
derstand the captain did not care to
render any asslstanco whatever The
pilot of the Eagle told mo tho captain
ordered him not to go near La Mascotte
as be did not wish to eudauger bis boat If
be had only pushed us athoro not a single
person would have boon Injured except
irom scalds and burns
All who wltnessod the disaster severely

Beaumont aud McCarthy wero In Wasti
lugton during tho session of con
gross and shoitly after adjourn
ment piopnied a report which was pituted
aud circulated through tho assemblies of
Knights of Labor and tho substance of
which was mado public through tho press
Halph Beaumont chairman of the com

plomcntary roport which will bo pro
Bonted at tho present convention and on
which action will be taken
To tho Gotioral Kxccutlvo Board of tho
Kuights of Labon Your national legh
la Ivo committee forwarded to you wHbln
three days aftei tho adjournment of con
gress their report bolloving that
the order should bo mado acquainted
with tho work accomplished by
tho committeeat the earliest posilble mo
mont Thltfjwlth constant attention to
duty during tho session prevented your
committco from expressing in their report
any vlowa that they might havo formed
during tho time thoy wero engaged in por
foimwg their taskln regaid tu any action
that tho general assembly might see fit to
make In future In tbo Una ot influencing
logltdatlon In tho interest ot thu people
Your committee realize that tho dnv is
near at hand when wo may safely rely
upon tho members ot our ordor Iu suill
dent number to wield tho very gre > t and
useful power as a body nt tho polls to
custaln only such candidates its muv bo
relied upon to favor our Interests That
obligation can only bu accomplished by it
system of education that will dcvolop
tho highest knowledgo npon tlm
measures that aro constantly being
biought to thu front by tho legislative
balls of tho nation Your committee
found that the most dlilloult task It had
to perform was to got at tho truo inward
ness of measures pending before con
gress Thoy found that among tho hun
dreds of hills now pending before the
sonato aud house on tho tlmo gioatques
tions of tho fnturo vlrt Puullc landa
transportation and lliiunco that but few
of them wore dmwn with a vluwof ro
compllshlng tho most good In tho inter
cut ot tho people but on tho
contrary It was tho common usage
of tho enemies of Unpeople to Jntroduro
a bill that on tho face of II would scorn In
bo a good nnd wholesome measure in tho
Interestof justice aud equity whilelit
between tho lines It would contain thu
most Insidious clause that thu cunning
bialn of a railroad attorney could invent
In fact sevoral members of congress In
foiuiud your committco that It was
iiixt to an Impossibility to set
un honest and fair bill through
either branch of tho Icglslatuio
Your committee also find that mouibeis
of tho order and other woiklng mpn In
genera aiu under these conditions often
led to Indorsing measures that arc de
cidedly injurious to their own best inter
ests Again thero Is no posslblo chance
of educating tho people In these frauds by
anything that Is said In congress as those
who have charge ot this class of lcglU >
tion us a rule uio tho most skllllul tacit

loiiBe and they have succeeded In
making the rules snch as to en
able them to smotlujr debute
on every pleco ot legislation of a vicious
character that may come beforo either
houso In tho Interest of tho corporate in
terest of tho country and a committee of
throe would ho inoro than human that
would be able to watch ovety measure of
this nature and bo ablo to couaterudt thu
same Now your committco is of opinion
that in order to combat tbo corporato
Interests aided as it is by a
subsldlrcd pros that something raoro
than a committee Is not only needed but
mutt bo resorted to l We would urouso
tho people to the wrongs that urn con
stantly being enacted by our law < makcrs
aud in view of this opinion held by your
committee thi y beg leave to oflxr the fol
