FEDERATION OF LABOR. The regular meeting of the Federation of Labor tvas lield, as usual, last Tuesday 'evening In the liayden building, Four-and-a-lialf street and Pennsylvania avenue president James F. McHugb was in the chair, and representatives from every .Jocal labor organization were present. "Credentials of Daniel Donohoe. In place -x ot Thomas Byrnes, from .the Journeymen f Horseshoers' Union, No. i7, were read CJg and accepted. Gommuuicatlon was read from the newly Tonned organization of boss barbers, setting Iorth its aims and objects, and requesting the privilege of having representation in the Federation of Labor. In accordance with the custom of the Federation, the request was referred to the local .of the same craft or calling al ready represented in the Federation. The employment of unlpn men on tho building now being erected for Mr. Madcs, on thecornerof Seventh a ndNstrectfl north-west, tvas then considered. The chair man of the contract committee reported interview -with the representative of Mr. Madcs, who had informed the committee that a clause bad. oeen lnberted In the specifications providing for the work to be done by union men. The Federation then took up the special business of the evening, which "was the further consideration of the revision of theconstitution and by-laws. Section by section was considered and thoroughly discussed, and Important addi tions and amendments were udopted. The Declaration ot Principles, as ap proved, is as follows: "Whereas, past experience has demon strated the Impossibility ot workingmen, "by individual appeals or demauds, to secure a just compensation tor their labor, ttiat those dependent on their strength may not be reduced to pinching economy, which ends In want when accident or disease enrorcesldleness;and "Whereas, said experience has further demonstrated Uiat the indifference of the working classes to the eTTorts of organized intelligent workmen to reform the abuses we justly complain of, can only be traced to Ignorance (the mother ot many chil dren), prominent among which are vice, crime and slavery; "Therefore, we seek, through combina tion, the attainment or the following ob i(:ts: "First. To lift our occupations from tho degrading position of acceptng a bare sustenance as a reward for a life of houcst toil, and to elevate labor to a higher plane of respectability. "Second. To reduce the number of hours of labor, thereby increasing the amount of work and the demand for labor correspond ingly. "Third. To educate the uninformed work men by discussing questions affecting the interests of labor; to render mutual assist ance to each other in securing all just de mands; to encourage all who labor in their efforts to ameliorate their oppressed con dition, and the belief that justice demands equal pay for male and female skilled labor. "To accomplish these objects we, the representatives of tho labor organizations of the District of Columbia, solemnly pledge our earnest efforts." One of the important amendments to tho the constitution is: "That all grievances against persons or firms must be pre sented in writing, signed and under the seal or the organization making the complaint." Arter debate It was decided not to change the basis of representation, each organi zation, as heretofore, Is eutitled to five delegates. After all ot the sectioushad been approved the constitution was adopted as a whole, and ordered to be printed. The delegates from the Carpenters As sembly reported favorably on the request of Mr. Salomon to be taken ort the unfair list, provided the proposition as laid down in his letter to employ union men In the future was complied with. The matter was referred to a joint committee of the Federation and District Apsembly to draw up "the agreement and present the same for signature. DISTRICT ASSEMBLY. The regular meetiug of District Assem bly No. GG, Knights of Labor, last Thursday evening was well attended. Master Work man Simmons presided. Roll call of dele gates showed that every local assembly in this jurisdiction -was represented. Letter from tho general secretary, John W. Hayes, was read, notifying the district that several local assemblies, recently or Iganlzed, had been attached to the District Assembly. The master workman spoke of the good work that is now being donetoy the district organizer. His refusal to organ ize certain disgruntled factions of men, whose crafts are already organized Imtnis city, was Ticartily indorsed. One organi zation of any craft is enough for a town of the size of Washington was the Eenti ment ae expressed by the delegates. Tbemnstcr workman also asked the dele gates to bring prominently bofore the locals the appeal of District Assembly No. 75, of Brooklyn, for assistance. The delegates promised to bring the matter before their respective locals. Thequestion of thebestmethod of properly celebrating Labor Day this year, will be diBcussed at the next meeting. It has been suggested to request the Washington Times Company to have the "Gas Coupons" form a prominent feature iu the parade. The question of a proper reception to the delegates who will be iu attendance at the General Assembly'of the Knights of Labor, that Is to be held in this city next November will also be considered. It was announced that another local assembly would probably be organized in this city before the meeting or the District. Though the names ot the charter members were read. It was not known whether it was tho desire to huvo the name or the crart made public at this time or not. Five new local assemblies in six weeks, four or them or crart8 not already organized in this city was considered a pretty good record, espe cially so when Itwaficonslderedthatthedull times do not stimulate new organizations. It was reported that the tin roofing on ajirotnlnent new brewery was being done on a nine-hour basis. This was asurpriso to the delegates, as it had always been understood that tho Bald Job ranked "A No, 1" Tor union men, union wages, and union houra. The delegates were or the opinion that the matter would be straight ened out when brought to the attention of the proper parties. ft The committee on building a TCnights'of Labor temple in this city Is expected to have Its plans ready to be presented to the district at the next meeting. It had been Imped by many that arrangements could have been made ho as to have the edifiin: completed in timo for the holding or the General Assembly, but. the time is now considered to be too short Tor this to be douc. The delegates from Excelsior Assembly reported that it was the intention of their assembly to Invite Brother Eowen to lec ture on the money question. The mem bers ot the order would be given proper notice If the invitation was accepted. Delegates from the carriageniakers re ported names of, applicants Tor member ship and well-attended meetings. The report or the officers showed the llnaiicca or the assembly in better condition than had been known for years.. At the last meeting promises were had fiom foity carriageniakers who expected to become members or the assembly. In one or the largest carriage shops, where every man is now a member of the assembly, even the apprentices were desirous ot being ad mitted. The charge of eight-hour -violations on the District or Columbia vehicle repair work is being thoroughly investigated by the Carriage Makers, and the full investiga tion will be presented in writing to the District Assembly, to be turned over to the District committee on eight-hour violations nt the next meeting. , The liarbers requested that the name ot Andrew Ward be taken off the unfair list. Request complied with. The journeymen and boss organizations of the Barbeis would have joint meeting. In reply to questions the delegates replied that it was thought that the new organiza tion would bea good thing. " Bakers' Drivers reported all satisfactory at the Corby Bros, bakery; drivers would either have to get in or get out. Engineers reported name of applicant for membership. The executive committee reported the signing of agreement by Mr. B. Salomon to give all work in the future to employes of strictly union labor. After i debate the recording secretary was Instructed to com municate with the Federation ot Labor and Inform that body that the District Assembly was satisfied with the agreement and had voted to take tho name orr tho unfair list, provided the Federation took the same ac tion. The committee on eight-hour violations reported that It pad investigated the charge or violating the law in the laying or Dis trict pavement and had found that the men were workiug, some nine hours, and others at limes twelve hours per day. The commit tee had written to Commissioner Powell, informing him of the Tacts, and requested that Hie committee be furnished with the date of present contract. Com missioner Powell had promptly replied to Uie request, and had informed the com mittee that the contract was giveu out August 15, 1894. The committee was given full instructions to carry on the in vestigation. The executive committee reported that the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company had promised to employ uuion engineers, but they had not yet done so. the Question of paying union wages seeming to be the dif ficulty. The committee stated that it would secure a definite answer this Tveek. The unanimous endorsement of a member ot the Theatrical Stage Employes' Union for a position iu Col. Abbaugh's new opera house was granted. AMONG THE LOCALS. The local meeting of the Eccentric Engi neers Ascoclntion held last Friday evening was unusually well attended. The executive committee had several importaut reports to make. The reason for tho rejection of the appli cant for the position of engmeeratthe An heuserBusch Browing Company wasordered to be furnished to thoDistrict Assembly. Bro. C. 0. Roller, who has accepted the superintendency of the gaibage crematory atPhiladelphia, applied foratidwasgrauted a traveling card. Bros. J. T. Doherty and P. W. Keys were appoluted to fill the vacancies in the Dis trict Assembly and Federation of Labor caused by the resignation of Bro. Roller. The appointment of Thornton Silcott as engineer at the Post building, gave general satisfaction. During the evening a request was handed in for an engineer to take a position in a prominent business house In this city, but owing to the short notice given, thp association was unable to fill the bill, though thepoBition was apermanentone paying $7 5 per month. A vote of congratulation waB tendered Bro. Roller on his appointment, though the members expressed themselves as being very reluctant to losesuch a faithruVmember. Several applications for membership were received and luidover for future action. The committee on annual excursion will announce date at thenext meeting. Attbe regularmeetlug ot the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and "Joiners, held last Monday evening in Costello's Hall, a large amount of craft business was trans acted. After the regular routine matter had been disposed of, five candidates for membership were elected. Under report of 6tate of trade, the mem bers reported rapid improvement, all the members of the society being now employed, it was further reported that almost all ot tho prominent contractors were working union men, and the eight-hour work day. During the evening the following reso lution was uuanimously adopted: "Whereas, it has been reported Uiat this union had formed a building company for the purpose of bidding on work to the detri ment of reliable builders, "Therefore, be it resolved, That Uiis union cannot nor will it embark in any such under taking, believing that such a course would only result in the hostility of builders who are at present on amicable terms with the uuion." An "Unabashed Bridegroom. Years ago a mushroom oil town called Sawyer City sprang up in a few weeks dur ing the petroleum excitement in The Brad ford oil region. One day a bark peeler aud his bride from the backwoods were taking a twenty-mile wedding journey on the rail Toad that traversed that section ot the country. They were very happy and caressed each other freely, unmindful of the smiles of their fellow-passengers. As the train pulled into Sawyer City aud the bndegioora Imprinted his 199th kiss upon the fai r one's lips a brakeman ope tied the car door aud shouted: "Sawyerl" "Don't care ef ye didl" retorted the groom.

The cool weather of the past month has been the means of upsetting a number of plans for out-door athletics and principally has it been hard on rowiug, which requires clear, bright days to make everything run smoothly and especially to make the men feel like exercising hard. This class of exercise more than any other requires plenty bright, warm sunshine to open up a man's pores and loosen up his muscle; without this the work Is sure to be Btiff and muscles do not rcspoud as quickly as they do in warm sunlight. The weather during the past week was just" the thing. All hope of getting into chape for either the Harlcn or the Passaic "River regattas on May 30 haebcen abandoned. With the short time now at hand, it would be im possible to pick crews and get them into any kind of sfiape by the date named. Tho chances are now that whatevercrews are gotten together for training purposes will be kept together for July 4, the Peo ple's Regatta at Philadelphia. It would bo absurd to even think of sending any thing to theMay 30 races unless there were some worlcl-ltntcrs here, and of these we havo none nowadays. The Pabsaic and Hsrlim tegattas are among the best open regattas held in thfs country, and some vc-ry fine crews, even so catly, row in Ihcso regattas, tii.d any untried i rews sent from here would not have a show or winning. POTOMACS TO ROW THE MIDDIES. Notwithstanding the backward condi tion or the wcatherup to this week and the thort time intervenii.g, Copt. Will Offley, of tho Potomac P.oat Club, t as arranged an cight-oared thcll race with the Naval Academy crew, to be rowed at Annapolis on or aLout May 18. The event Is to take the place ot the cadet's race with" the Ana lostans, and which on account of the diffi culty to get the crew togtlherbecouseoriaw and medical examinations of some of the local men, has teen declared off. Hut little time is leit for the locals to practice, cud tli-.-y will ue.etaar.ly bchaiidicapiKdu great dial on this account. The crc-w will Le a mixed r.uo, but the prmpects are that .t will I Miong. The M.ddies, on the contrary, have every advantage, i c.t riy 'ii Ucc.uent practice, but m matti r or training, gymnasium work and so' on, ai.d they lire even now, 1.0 doubt, in excellent condition, and would hardly th-nk of poiig into a lace unless thoy were "f.t." The rotcmacs will go earnestly to wi.rk and w!l make the Lest possible sho w.ng, which is the i ext thing tow inning. It is suggested that May 2.", if it cau Le ar ranged, would he a titter t.ate Iftr the locals, bc-mute it wouid giic i hem more time to properly prepare for it, AS TO SEMI-MONTHLY RACES. On Tuesday evening r.e.t a nxetirg will be held r.t the Columb.a AthlelicClub house which will be of Miipcrtance to rowing men here. It will to- the meeting of the Joint committees from tho C. A. C, P. B. C. and A. B. C, called by Chairman Alex Grant, to t.tar the t.nat report on ins plan to havo sem'.-mouthly rowing races. The impression prevails that the plan will not be favorably reported. The board of governors or the Analost an Boat Club at a recent meeting accepted aud concurred in the report of its committee, which wasad v;Tte to the proposition, auA this settles it so far as the A. B. C. is cencerned. It is possib.e that at the coming meeting some plan may be advanced which will serve the purpose aimed at viz, to increase the local interest in rowing, not only among the rowing men, but among the admirers of. the sport as well. GAMBLING DENS UP-RIVER. While Gov. O'Ferrall is considering what to do with the lawlessness near the Long Bridge, it would be as well Tor him to add as a make-weight the lawlessnu&s at or near another bridge, and that is the Virginia side ot the Potomac River a few hundred reet from the old Aqueduct Bridge. The gam bling dens there are not legalized, so that there would be no excuse tor non-action on that score. Day and night they .tro the resort r men who can HI afrord to go there and gamble. In addition to the harm it does them, it does great injury to our rowing interests. A once most popular amusement I refer to pleasure boating hsa been almost en tirely broken up by the "class or resorts named, because or the character ot the habitues who swarm to these dens, and ssmelhing must be done to do away w ith them and once again have our beautirnl river and its banks and surroundings for the pleasure or those who enjoy boating with their lair friends. COLUMBIA ATHLETIC CLUB. ThegymnastsaudaerobatsottbeColumbla Athletic Club have been taking things quietly eince Monday evening's bcneHt performance. The athletic features of the performance were tty far the best ever been here out side of professional ranks, aud these alone should havo packed the house, not to speak of tho musical attractions. Naturally there wnsgreatdisappointment.aud rightly so, at the small attendance on the one performance of the year at which tho club has a sort of right to expect its friends to patronize its" venture as a slight return Tor the numerous excellent free shows enjoyed at its clubhouse. The gymnasium team without exception is the strongest that ever appeared in public here, and speaks well for the workorProf. Johu Crossley, who can but feel gratified at ific results of his labors. The team would make a great impression and doubtless many dollars for the club, by a tour through tho lower Virginia cities" where good shows of this kind are appreciated. in addition to the work on the apparatus by Seweii, Ross, Craig, Shelby and Har mon, and Prof. Crossley, whoso per formances were ot the promptest and most "accurate kind, the human pyramids were perfect in detail and attractive iu appear aucti, and were put on at a great outlay of energy, patience and time. The Ro man ladders, only slightly less in impor tance, were likewise a great feature. They were a splendid exhibition of agility and strength, and to Lieut. T. B. Nolan belongs the credit for their con ception and execution. As the mainstay his performance was a good one, aud brought out some of the strength which in earlier days he was noted for. As vice president of the old Washington gymnastic Association, which was located inLouisiana. avenue, between Nluth and Tenth streets, some years ago, Nolan was noted for bis remarkable development and strengen. He had the record of Iirting 1,500 pounds, also swinging a pair of Indian clubs of thirty-two poands each, and pushing above his head at arm's length a 100 pound dumbeil. We have not many such amateur strong men hereabouts nowadays. Thc-committee having in charge the great bicycle meet to be held on Decoration Day at Columbia field is hard aCWork on Hie de tails or the arfair. Tho committee consists ot G. W. Cook, chairman; L. S. Wells, jr., J. H. Brittain, Frank Libbey, Sam Stinemetz,ind C. A. Calrera. The track" Isin fine condition -and is said by experts to be one ot the fastest and safest In this section. It is- exactly tie same size and shape -as the track in San Francisco, on which Eddie Bald, of Buffalo, made the wonderful new one and twc-milc records. Richard Beall, a well-known member of the club's basket-ball team, is at work on plans for a strong and at the same timo attractive grand stand, which will seat some 800-persons. He promises the work shall havo his best efforts as an architect. For the Information of riders hereabout I give the events for which prizes will be offered and for which entry blanks may now -be had at tho- clubhouse. ''"Events in Class A One mile novice, one- quarter mile open, one-half mile open, one ntfo open, one mile District championship, one mile handicap, two mile handicap, and one mile lap race, in which event a prize will begiveu to the winners of each lap. Events in. Class B One-hair mile open, one mile ope.n, two mile handicap. All the big makers or wheels have prom ised to send their teams, which alone will be a great attraction. The baseball team is doing splendid work aud seems to be having an easy time with the Department League teams. CARROLL INSTITUTE ATHLETICS. There is no lorger any doubt about the quality ot the material Prof. Maurice Joyce has on hand among the members ot the .Carroll luUitute. The Iu&titute champion ship contest on Thursday evening clearly proved that there is material which Is sus ceptible of tho highest kind of development, and a pity it is tl at the trouble has not been taken long ago to find thlsout by just 6uclr asliow as wasgiveu IastThurcday. Gallagher's work rn tie lG-nound shot, with a put of 29 feet 2 Inches was excelleut for a i.ovice with little or no training. Hough's (C. A. C.) record is 35 feet 8 1-2 inches. Gallagher ai.d Euckley and Bauby and Eckart will make a great weight aud hammer team. Eerberieh looks like a coming standing broad jumper. Ills performance was 9 feet 4 Inches, just 12 1-2 inches less than the present local record. The performers named deserve credit for their excellent work aid to these may be added Joe Daly, Al Becker, Ben Finnigan, MeCluslcj aud Mangan, and Wasserbach, whose gymnastic as well as athletic work was noteworthy. The Introduction of the double horizontal bar was received with pleasure, as the performance thereon was out of the ordinary- The splendid exhibi tion given by James E. Joyce, brother ot the proressor, will long be remembered. His final trjck ot a double somersault rrom the bar wasdifficult and well done. Future open athletic; affairs will see C. I. athletesm nearlyevery event. ANALOSTAN BOAT CLUB. With the warmer weatner ot the past week greater activity was displayed at the were eager Tor a spin. Much to the rcreS ot Capt. Moore and all the members, especially the rowing ele ment, the cight-oared rice with the Naval i Academy had to be called off because ot t i ue emorcen absence or several or the crew, who are preparing Tor and taking rinal examinations in law and medicine re specilvely. A four-oared race could not be arranged. Bob Howard is laid up with a lameness in his leg, which iflay prevent his rowing this season. Ross Perry is preparing for a trip abioad, and his work iu theTStroke seat will be greatly missed. A large number of new members are being enrolled, and. there will b,j little dif HiMilty in getting out a number of junior crews,, in addition to the already strong senior ones. GEORGETOWN COLLEGE ATHLETICS. The students of old Georgetown, who hop., to represent It in the coming contests at Mott Haven, are In active, earnest training for the preliminary events. The interest that Is annually centered f.i these competitions among Ameican colleges has Increased to a remarkable extent during the past four years. Inter est Is added this year by the announcement that the winners or the several events will constitute a team Tor a European tour, and tlie approaching event will be by far the greatest ever held. In the past Georgetown has been at a disadvantage in having only meager train ing facilities. This is being gradually ivercome, aud this year a better showing will- be made. The number of entries will bo larger than formerly. Mahoney, who made such a record in the broad Jump last season, is facing some sturdy competition from the other aspirants. The College Field day will be held at the Campus early In May, and the follow ing are the eutnes ror that event, tlie winners In each to constitute the team to go to Mott Haven: High Jump: Scanlan, Walsh, McElhone, Murphy. Kntries in 100 yards are Fox, Mahoney, LBaby and Murphy. Two hundred and twenty yards: Bar ley. Mahoney. Murphy, Baby. Four hundred aud forty yards: Barley, Baby, V. Smith. Mile run: McElhoue, nolt, Douglass, Claiborue, McAueruey. Mile walk: Cameron, Douglass, Hop kins. Shot and hammer: Mahoney, O'Con nor, Hoyle, Leahy. Bicycle race: Hatchings, Maher, Tag gart. From the work seen in practice it is ex pected that the men who are choseu Tor Hie Mott HaventlNiin will return with a uumberof poiuts to theircredit. O. P. SCHMIDT. "Why Dennis Objected.

"Dear Dr. Shade: When I placed my wife under your treatment six months ago I little dreamed that a cure would be the re sult, my wife's father, brbther and sister having died ot the dread disease, Consump tion. You can readily imagine we had no hope, especially after she was given up by two Washington Specialists. Encouraged, however, bv interviews with people whom you had cured, resulted in a trial ot your niilnriflum Treatment. You have adviscil mc to have her luncs examined to test the cure, which has been done by our old family physician, who first diagnosed- tubercu losis nearly two years ago. He now pro nounces the cure complete. If any are in clined to be skeptical, as I was, send them to my wife. She will dispel any doubt that may linger in their minds.
