It appears that the District Commis sioners have not yet gotten to the end of their trouble in trjing to solve the problem hiwto dispose of the accumulations of gar bage. The system for the introduction of -which a contract was to be awarded has Lccn found unsuitable forusein Washington, and ntw investigations have been feet on rot. A suggestion has been made which may contain the final solution of thepuzrle and It is nothing less than a proposition to try both cremation and reduction; to have a plant for each method erected and from rosulu attained with each determine which will be best suited for local conditions and necessities. Washington does not by any means stand alone In trying to disposeof this troubleomc question. Other cities have been aud are Btill wrestling with It. It presents numer ous difficulties, and where fiscal as well as hygienic conditions must be taken in consideration the difficulties surrounding the case become greatly aggravated. The Commissioners and Health Officer Wood ward, however, are bending all their ener gies to finding a way out of tbe dilemma and it is to be hoped that tliey may find it quickly, anil to their and the ruble's en tire satisfaction.

We may be- compelled to use balmon-colored moun tain Juice for the present, but an effort should be made to rurnish Washington with water that is water and uotluug but water. GOODMOVEMErrrrXAUGTJTtATED. The labor meeting last night inaugurated a movement that fcliould bring good re sult. Unlet-b working people ca n uec the Influence of organisation to overcome the growing tendency or corporations to crowd them, the light to maintain inde pendence might ah well be abandoned. The Debs injunction, arrest, prosecution, and conviction established a precedent thut must be set aside by act of Congress, or organized labor cap exert no mllueuco in self-defense. Congress will be "called on to fix the status of organized labor, to decide if an organized body Is entitled to the rightb of an Individual; in other wordswhether ornot a strike peacefully coudacted by order of legally constituted labor leaders is a violation of the anti-trust law as w held by -Judge Woods. It is conceded that an individual lias the right to quit ins em ployment, but that right under the Debs decision is denied an organized body. Railroads combine to act as public carriers, to establish wages and hire and dismiss employes, and it would seem that working people sliould be permitted toorganizeaudlo exert the influence of organization against such encroaching corporate power. It is lk'lited by those familiar with the workings of Congress that the demand of labor organizations will be sustained by that body. It may require a .pecific act to-convinee some of the Judges that cor porations do not own the country, but the question will be decided in no uncertain way, and in the end the punishment of Debs will result in great good to organized labor. IIES'T.s. VOlt THE I'EOIVLE. Make ecry reasonable effort to abolish crime by insisting on the prosecution of the outlaws across the rior. Give every possible aid to the establish ment of a workingman's library, reading room, and labor bureau. Encourage the poor people's loan bureau. It w HI drive Suj locks out of the business. Insibt on cheaper lighting laeilitics aud unite in an attempt to influence Congress on this question. Urge the Commissioners to puMi the prosecution of the Eckington trolley for t lie removal of its poles. A corporation l hut willfully Molales the law isnoteiititlLd to leniency. Petition Congress to stop using the water rent surplus to pay for the Lj decker tunnel It will be better to set the money aside to establish a &steni to filter public water Preserve the shade trees by freeing them from nests of insects and by keeping them carefully trimmed See that jour children belong to the anti-cigaretteleagueandlooneor the bands of mercy Both these organizations in fluence the mind for good Start a moement to bring about the erection of more bLhool buildings Our facilities for education are not equal to the demands of a growing population The proposition to renominate Capt. Mushback to the Virginia State senate indicates that the outlaw clement lias little to fear of interference from Gov. OTerrall The unexplained delay of the Governor in ordering a prosecution of the cases worked up by the Board of Trade also gives cause for doubt, and un less more active measures are adopted for the suppression of the lawlessness good people on both sides of tho river will begin to think there is little hope of gubernatorial assistance in enforcing the laws. It is currently reported that the Shy locks arc arranging to settle the cases brought against them by The Times law yers by paying the amounts demanded. If so, this will be a great victory and should be looked upon as the end of Shy Iockism for the present. The next logical move is to establish a workingman's loan bureau, and all interested msuch a worthy enterprise bliould give it financial assist ance. Some English and American women have started in China what they call a "Natural Feet Society." The Chinese sug gest that these ladies return home and form a "Natural Waist Society." Score a big one for the Celestial. To an interviewer in England Mr. Croker remarked that "poor people m Great Britain have more personal liberty than they have in the United States." It cer tainly was so when Mr. Croker was the un crowned king of New York. Joe Blackburn ought to have known better than to bring Papa Stewart into Kentucky. This phase of Senatorial cour tesy was too much. Is it going to be an "iridescent dream," Mr. Ingalls? Let evcrj- boy know the cause of his Jubilation the coming Fourth. The trolley pole's declaration of inde pendence will not go. The bicycle is Nature's Cupid. It daily multiplies her lovers. t .

THEIR BIG MASS MEETING Resolutions Adopted Strongly Con demning tho Action of tho Cotirtn. Grand Master Workman Smereigu Counsels Closer TJ nlon A mong Litibor Organizations. The imprisonment or Eugene V. Bobs, the Western labor leader, whose incar ceration was purstinnt to order or me highest court lor alleged offenses against the law, was the topic or discission, last night, at a mass meeting or il.e labor or ganizations or the District at Plasterer's Hall, at tho corner or Fuor and a hair street and Pennsylvania a -venue Both in tho speeches made and m the resolutions unanimously adopted, the act or the court was denounced as the "un wat ranted, arbitrary extension or ju dicial power, ostensibly for the inaln- tenauce of law, but reallj in the interest or a corporate power which, by dishonest methods secured from a federal court and tlio National gouriiiuent legal and armd support." President James T. MclTugh, of the reileratlon ot Labor, presided, ami as the first ortier or business called for the read ing of the resolutions. These were pre sented by Mr. Miiford Spohn. MASTER WORKMAN SOVEREIGN'S SPEECH. The principal speech ot the evening was made b Mr. J. R Sovereign, the master workman or the national organization of the Knights or Labor, whose appearance on the plattorm was greeted with a storm of applause. Mr. Soereign said this country needs recapturing bj the ballot He deplored the fact that the laboring men ate not dis posed to cling together, and said lie hoped to jet lead them united to victory ; that lie was not laboring in the interest alone of his own organization , but lor workingmeii every wheie, organized and unorganized. He recounted the hihtory of tho riots in ! Chicago, and said the efforts of Bebs throughout were for peace and order. He kntw this, he said, ironi participation with turn in all tae Mirring event or that tning period. His idea was, he raid, that poverty Is a habit, and submission to oppression is a habit. Had all the acts, or corporate ag gression been precipitated upon the labor ing men at oi.ee, revolution would have resulted, but these acts were ol gradual aggression. DEPUTIES WERE DRUNKARDS. He denounced the deputies, placed in power in Chicago during tho strike as drunkards, who, by ncklesiiiess, brought on the scenes or violence. "If we want to w hip the combination that put Eugene Debs in pnton," he declared, "we must stick together. The incarcera tion means much. It means the elevation of proiwrtj rights abo-ve human rights." His opinion, brier Iy expressed, was that Debs was imprisoned without a trial, and that IT this can l)e done as to one individual it could be done with all He baid, further, that the time is coming when the wage scale would lie abolished, when the people would enjoj the fruits of their own labor, and when the railroads would be run in the interest of the masses, not of corporate wealth, with no lioard of directors to trample upon human libertv. Dr. Alexander Kent followed in a speech strongly commending the greater part of Mr Sovereign's address He referred es pecially to the reference made to the necessity for united crfort and close union upon the part or organized labor. ALL SHOULD STICK TOGETHER Ho depreciated the fact that when uuion men quit work on account of oppression, there were other men who would take their places and uphold the baud of plutocracy Every non union man should unite with the union, and all should work together for the common good. Br Kent was heartily applauded at the close of Ins remarks. The other speakerb were Miiford Spohn, James Trainer, Samuel Be Nedry and Joseph Stviuer. They were all agreed upon the necessity for active co-operation of workingmoo and the use of the ballot for the redress of thegreat wrongsbtiffered When the speeches were ended, Piesidetit Mellugh presented ihe following resolu tions and thej were adopted without a dissenting voice We, citizens or the District or Columbia, hereby declare that the imprisonment of Eugene Debs and other orficials of the American Railway Uuion, was an un warranted, arbitrary extension of Judicial power, ostensibly for the maintenance of law, but really in the miereats or a corpor ate power, which, by dishonest methods, seen red from a federal court and tlieua tional government legal and armed support in an event which was the direct result of corporate greed aud imposition it was an act that outlaws labor, an ingenious legal scheme to defeat the object or trade organization and leaves the wage earner helpless to resist the degradiug impositionof combined capital It lstlielegalmanlpul.tllotiofan Injunction which makes the wage earner a culprit and casts about tho soulless corporate body the protective ermine of the Judiciary. It is a gross prostitution of a legal pro cess which is a gteater menace to the liberty of the citizen and the stability of the State than are all the forces tending to lawlessness and anarchy. It is an an, though confirmed by the Supreme Court or the United States, that should be condemned as the greatest legal wrong of the century. H broadens and makes ipdelhble the line between that which, is legal and that winch Is right, and defines the issue as between legal wrong and illegal right, which is involved in the efforts of those who under adverse industrial conditions, legally defenseless, are striving lor an equitable share of the product of tlielr labor and the moral and intellectual ad v.incetnent of the workers of tli is republic. buch an abuse of power which arbitrarily imposes upon the citizen the forfeiture or uberty and affixes the seal of crime, deserves the condemnation of every citien who desires an impartial administration of justice fetnctly within the organic la w. Upon the defenseless heads or the repre sentatives of labor the heavy hand or debased justice falls, while a multitude are licensed and permitted to appropriate the substance of the people, outrage the right of the citizen, rob labor of its earn ings, force men to pauperism and crime. Against them no injunction issues, justice is mute, courts are impotent, legislators truckling, and judges servile. Hedged around by bayonets, spurned from the bar of the Judiciary, denied due process of law, betrajed by the legislator, and neg lected by the executive official, the substance and the liberty of the citizen is in the merciless grasp of the "com munism of pelf." Such a condition strongly appeals to the patriotism and manhood of the people, who, regardlesB of party fealty in tiie past, should enter effective protest at the ballot box. As voter, by the power of the franchise, from the high court or the reoplc, let an injunction issue bearing the eeal of the sovereignty of labor that Judges will re-pect, legislators heed and executive olficials obey. Kesolved, That the legislative commit tee of the Federation of Labor and District A-ssenibly GG demand ofCoiigresslegulation which bhall give legal protection to or ganized employes of corporations and tecure them m the future from an arbitrary and unjust application of an injunction under a gross and willful niitconEtruction of law. Itesolved, That the status or tSose or ganizations shall be legally dec'ared and the duty or tbe judiciary in all matters at issue between employer and employe eball be plainly defined. Master Workman Sovereign announced tliatj by his orders Labor Day will lie ob served by Knights or Labor all over the country as a day when unanimous protect shall be entered ogainst the Debs imprisonment.

Runs His Arrow. Against the Wrongs of This Work-U-Da-y World. Mr. Harry Shannon, already well known as a newspaiier man, made his debut last night as a lecturer at Met7erott Hull. He was introduced to an audience that filled the auditorium, by Dr. Franklin T. Howe, as "a young newspaper man, a keen observer or men andilfairs and a bright, crisp and fluent writer.!' The audience was quite en rapport with the lecturer, who was given a hearty demonstration and reception when he ap peared and ga-ve his lrifiids an off-hand, familiar salute in the semi-military ttyle. This good feeling was kept up curing the entire lecture, in which Mr. Sham on &aid a great many things that touched the audi ence instantaneously. His subject was "Wrongs," which gave him an opportunity to decant on tho man ner m which the strong oppress the weak The condition or tho poor he likened to tho vain Incessant labor or Sisyphus on tho everlasting thirst or Tantalus. Humani ty is hypnotized b j wealth and fraud is epi demic. Purgatory, he said, was a chunk of paradise when compared with the con ditions or tho poorer laboring clesses, m the shop and tho office. Mi. Shannon pitched into society , as it is technically known, and assailed a great many or its forbl5, pride or ancestry, arrectations and iiLsincn us. Anstociacy and snobocracy are as syn-onjinousass-anctimony and sin. For every dollar's worth or charity such people do they expect S2 worth of gratitude, $4 worth ot advertising and ?8 worth of heaven. The lecturer then pictured the views or all classes of society, expressing the hope that the crisis in civilization was approaching, and concluded with a bril liant peroration, in which he pictured a perfect ftv stem of civilization and human it y. The literary stjlc of the lecture was excellent. It was full of bright points and antithesis, witty, sarcastic, and philo sophic. Tbey Are Probably Sincere.

MORTON HAD A GRUDGE Bad Feeling Ibis Existed for Several Years Between tho Secretary of AKi'ioulturo and tho Chief Prognos tleator His Successor Is u Local Forecustor of Long Experience. Mark Harrington, Chier ot tho United States Weathei Bureau, gave up ids po sition jesterday and removed his per sonal errects rrom the orrice at Twenty fourth and M streets. His successor, a local forecaster, has been chosen by Sec letary Morton, of the Department ot Agnculture, but the name was not made public last night. It probably will bo to-day. Pror. Harrington was appointed by Pres dent Harrison at the organiation or the weather bureau as part of the Depart ment or Agriculture Tour jears ago. He is a Doctor of Laws from his ulma iratcr, the University pf Michigan, a member or numerous foreign hciciitiflc societies, in cluding the meteorological boeietles of Vienna and Berlin, an honor bestowed upon very few outside or Germany and Austria respectively. CHARGES WERE PREFERRED. Two jears ago charges were preferred against the management ot the Weather Bureau, involving laxness in business methods, and investigation was made. "The report completely exonerated Dr Harrington, and showed that the reports upon which the charges were made did not arise from a desire to improve the public service At that lime tliero was some sharp correspondence between Secretary Morion and Dr Harrington. This arose partly Irom misunderstand ing and partly from the fact that Dr. Harrington took the position that he tield his commission from the President and could not he removed by the Secretary. The relations of the two men have never been cordial since, but they have carried on the work of the bureau together, hold ing such personal conversations as have been proper for the management of its arfairs. Dr Harrington said yesterday the Pres ident asked lor Ills resignation because or personal interests He declined to give it on the ground that public interests were involved; there was no reason for his resignation on account of these His re moval followed He does not feel that he has been justly treated He thinks the interests or a scientific bureau a re sacrificed when it is brought to the Tour-gear plane and appointments are made tor political reasons LOCAL MAN SELECTED The new chic-r or the bjreatt, it is said, will be a forecaster in the office here not Major Dunwoody Secretary Morton said of the case last night "The sole consideration in making the appointment will be to improve the effi ciency or the rorecasting work of the Wenther Bureau If the Weather Bureau cannot make forecasts that are to 1m credited, tiien it is not worth perpetu ating, and therefore it ;s quite likely that the coming chief of the bureau will bo taken up from the ranks or local Tore casters and observers. "In all probability he will tie a man or about twenty years' experience, with executive abilitv, unimpeachable as to industry, fidelity, and sobriety. He has a high reputation as a meteorologist and is not n graduate ot any of the great col leges. He lias never been recommended for the place by a single human being, and never knew he was to be called until actually notified. I have every conTi dence that he wm be one of the best officers we have hail here for a long time." MARK'S PAINFUL. RIDE. His Bike Took Him Over a Culvert and Later Landed Him in a Cell. Edward Marks, nineteen years old. might properly be called a victim of the bicycle craze. A bicjele, and a hired bicycle at that, is the cause or his present facial dis figurement, and the fact that he is now languishing m a station house cell is also due to that agent of human ills. Yesterday Edward hired a bicvcleTrom Palmer & Co., on Tenth street, between D aud E streets northwest. It was a hand somo surety bicjele with pneumatic tires, and glittering handle bars, and next to riding on a balloon, Edward thought it tho easiest method of locomotion extant. He decided to make a little run to Baltimore, and started out. Progressing beautmu ly, he got almost to Laurel, when he rode into a culvert, a little over thirty feet dep. Tilled to a depth oT a couple of feet with mud and water. A rarmor who happened to be passing heard his distressful cries for aid, and fislid him out of his ugly predicament, aud after scraping himself Edward con tinued on to Laurel, where, becoming dis gusted with wheeling he offered to sell tin machine for $10. Unable to get a bidder at this price he lowered it to 5, and tl'en the sbentf got suspicious and held him while he telegraphed to police headquarters in thi3 city. Detective Boardman went out and Edward admitted that he had hired the wheel here. Both wheel and rider, tho latter very much battered up, were brought back to this city, and Edward was locked up at the Tirst precinct station lious", while the wheel is being held at headquarters as evidence ot Edward's physical and moral Tall.
