LOT OP- Umbrellas and Holiflay Specialties ANNUAL CONVENTION Of the American Federation of Labor Meets. Delegate Assemble in Historic Inde pendence flail, a Place Hallowed by Sao red Memories. Hpeclal to the Leaf-Chronicle. Philadelphia, Dec. 12. In In dependence Hall to-day the twelfth annual convention of the American Federation of Labor begins, and in many respects it will be the most important labor gathering ever held in the United States. This Is due of course to the fact that it is the first national meeting of trades union or ganizations since the close of the great strikes of 1892. Piesident Sam uel Uompers, who will preside over all the deliberations, has this t say of the prospective work of the organ izatlon: " We will have with us delegations from all the organizations in which strikes occurred and will be furnished with complete reports concerning them. Gapt. John O'Brien, the or ganizer from Oregon, will be one of the notable characters at the gather ing. He comes armed with the facts in the Coeur D'Alene strikes, and his report will astonish the coun try. As far as I can learn it will show that the Federal troops shot down men who were acting in the deenslve all the time. But aside from this strike we will have r ports tm Buffith , Tennessee and Home stead, and all these cases will be thoroughly discussed. Finkerton- ism will receive a rebuke which it will remember for years, and Con gress will of course be memorial ized to act decisively against further treasonable action on the part of detective agencies or employes. Then there are a number of important questions to come up in addition to these mentioned. Homestead day will of course be observed on Decem ber 13, to-morrow, and collections will be taken ud for the destitute at Homestead, not alone in the conven tion, but in every trades union In the country. Efforts will also be directed to strengthening all existing organiza tions who are affiliated with the Fed eration, and we have hopes that the great organizations of labor employes will come into the fold this year. As we believe, in the restriction of immigration to some extent, that question will claim our attention very soon after we meet. The reduction ot the hours of labor to eight will of course be advocated again, but just what steps the convention will take in the way of forcing demands of this kind remains for the delegates to see. A decided change in the conspiracy laws will be thoroughly discussed, and brought to the attention of Leg islators in no equivocal terms. The prohibition of child labor, the con vict contract system and the question of the liability of employers for ac cidents to workmen occasioned by defective machinery will all receive the attention at the convention." The representation in the conven tion is arranged on the following basis: International and national unions, with less than 4,000 members one delegate; for 4,000 members or more, two delegates; for 8,000 mem bers or more, three delegates; for 16,- 000 members or more; four delegates; for 32,000 members or more, five delegate?; and so on. Local trade, or federal labor unions, State federa tions, central labor unions, trades as semblies or trades councils, one dele gate each. The headquarters are at the Girard House and there the executive com mittee will hold its council meetings. The officers, all of whom will prob ably be re-elected, are 8amue Comp ere, president; P. J. McGuire, first vice-president; William A. Carney, second vice-president: Chris Evans, secretary; John B. Lannon, treas urer. The guests will be royally enter tained during their stay in Philadel phia and a reception committee, of which H. L. Mines is secretary, will escort the visitors to points of inter est in Philadelphia and will arrange a banquet for them at the close of the convention. It will Indeed be a historic gathering.

Borne Hews Note That Will Prove In teresting to Headers of the Leaf- Chronlcla. Chas. Hayes, a noted Texas criml nal, wanted for several crimes In that State, was shot and killed in In Hawkins county one day last week while resisting arrest. The news of the killing was received at Nashville while requisition papers for him were being issued. The committee appointed by the Bar Association of the State at its last meeting, for the purpose drafting a bill to be presented to the next Legis lature, for the purpose of creating a court of Chancery appeals, met in Nashville Saturday to draw up the document. This action was taken in view of the fact that the Supreme court has each year more cases on its docktt than it can attend to. Since the recent disastrous fire at Milan, in which the entire town nar rowly escaped,' the Exchange is ad vocating water works for the city. The Trenton (Tenn.) Democrat says: "Prof. G. R. McGee recently set out 400 pecan trees on his farm near Trenton. The plants cover ten acres of ground and Mr. McGee cal culates that in ten years they will be gin to yield profitably and that his Investment will some day yield a handsome income to the person who owns it." At a largely attended meeting of the Democrats of Obion county last week strong resolutions were adopted urging Hon. Frank P. Bond, o Brownsville, for Internal Revenue collector for this district. The people down there are so strong for him that the ladies are getting up a peti tion for him This document is being signed by all the leading ladies of that county. This leads the States-Democrat to remark that if the wishes of the ladies of West Ten ness are regarded Mr. Bond will get the appointment. The people of the Woods Valley vicinity, according to the Dickson county papers, are building a new Methodist church at that place. This church belongs to the Southside cir cuit, a new work created at the last session of the Tennessee conference. Last Thursday evening, at the resi dence of the bride in this cify, Mr. Jno. Sullivan was married to Mrs. Nannie E. Wahi. The groom is over 70 years of age, while the bride is fair and forty. Milan Exchange. Another suit has been brought against the Owensboro A Nashville railroad on account of the wreck at South Carrollton last June, in which several people lost their lives. This wreck, it will be remembered, was caused by a collision of a regular passenger train and a colored excur sion train. Hugh Barclay, of Bus sellville, was fireman of the excur sion engine and was killed. The Deposit Bank of Bussellvllle has qualified as administrator of Barclay and has filed suit in the Logan Cir cuit court against the O. A N. rail road for $25,000 damages for negli gently causing, through the careless ness of its employes, agents and servants, the death of the plaintiffs decedent. s The board of trustees of the State University hld their annual meet ing at Knoxville last week and de cided to petition the Legislature for an appropriation of $50,000 for build ing purposes. S. J. Harper, of Dyersburg, killed three hundred ducks the other day in six hours. He stood at one place and did the killing. He fired six hundred shots, and now his arm is paralyzed by the gun kicking him. The Tipton Headlight is authority for this. Says l he Henderson (Ky.) Glean er: "Bryant Lipscomb, who was confined in the Daviess county Jail last June for ao offense against the laws of the United States, has brought suit against N. M. Lan caster, jailer, for $20,000, because the latter put one Dan Rudy, a negro arrested for lunacy, in the same cell with him without first depriving him of his penknife, with which he se riously cut the plaintiff across the face and on the arm." The following tobacco news is taken from Saturday's issue of the New Era: "Several more large stem merles and rehandling establish ments will be In operation in nop kin8ville during the coming season. Messrs. Nelson A Dabney are having erected on Campbell street, in the rear of their warehouse, a large brick building, which will be fitted and provided with every modern im provement for the rapid preparation of the wed for market' Messrs. 1L M.

HON. HARVEY MYERS Aoquitted on Charm of Bribery at Covington. Special to the LeHf-curoulcle. - Covington, Ky., Dec. 11. Hon. Harvey Myers was arraigned here this morning in the Criminal court on a charge of bribery. Both sides announced themselves ready for a trial and a jury was empaneled. The Jury, on a technicality, was ordered to bring in a verdict for the defendant, which was promptly done. i Unfortunate Greatness. The more eminent the man tbe less his personal freedom. There" is, to my mind, something not altogether satisfactory In the contemplation of that plain truth. It Is as though we set up a god and placed him on a lofty pinnacle, and set him apart and kept him there. How much bettor off are we little ones In the green pastures far beneath! . ' :- - . Think, for instance, of the things which we can do, and which, say, Mr. Gladstone or the Marquis of Sal isbu ry cannot. ' We may take a hand at penny nap every night ot our lives, or even shilling nap, if we have hillings in our purses, and who shall say us nayf We should very properly regard that person as au interfering ass who in, our hearing criticised our pursuits. If he were so foolish as to attempt to prevent our playing nap, t here would, not Impos sibly, be a case of assault and battery and a verdict of served him right. But let Mr.. Gladstone or the Marquis of Salisbury play' a nightly game of nap, and let tl.e fact of their doing so be known, and it is quite on the cards that hundreds of thousands of hands will bo stretched out to hurl tlieiu where a recently deceased Irishman was hurled. We can be guilty of a hundred peccadil loes, and we are guilty of them every day. We are in a chronic state of guilt. I am bound to own I am. But no one thinks a penny the worse of us. Hut let Mr. Glad stone be found out in one and what a hubbub would be raised! We little ones know that this is a world of give and take; that we are but human; that it is human to err. Hut in the case of a great man we decline to allow that he is human. His is a case in which the one rift in the lute makes all the music mute. Let him fall away in one thing, lie falls away in all things. All tho Year Hound. An Inionv ileut Advertisement. He was a very nice young man and was got up in the highest style of nrt. He sat down in the Irani car and regarded with evident admhation a pair of very positive, very loudly checked and very now trousers, which he pulled up carefully at the knees to prevent any tendency to bagging. The car rattled and clattered along, and all the passei.ers gazed into upward va cancy, like all tram car passengers do. Finally a fair maiden, who wit opposite the young man, saw somet hing and gig gled, after the fashion of her kind. Theu he looked at the nice young man and gig gled again, aud then she iiiulged her fair companion, and the fair companion gazed across the car,, looked at the young man and giggled. All this annoyed the nice young man, who had been looking very wiso, and when two or three other passengers joined in tbe chorus be began to wriggle and ceased looking wise. 'Die laughiug increased and grew and spread, and the nice young man grew desperate. He got up to see what it was over iiis head that caused the uneeera ly cacbinnulion. He found it. It was one of those big cardboard advertisements that adorn tram curs. It was printed in big black letters, and it said: The young man sitting beneath this card is one of our customers. He is very fussy and hard to please; but myl Isn't he an elegant dresser? He hns on a pair of, our 10s. 6d, trousers. London Tit-Bite. What the Kskliuo Eat. The trip of the group of Eskimos recent ly landed in Boston on the way to the World's fair was uneventful, except for the difficulty experienced in providing sat isfactory food for the Eskimos. They would not eat cooked articles of any sort, and soon became tired of the sun dried seal meat, venison and fish, with which tbe ship's larder was bountifully provided. In this emergency the head of a family of English speaking Eskimos suggested trail ing lines for fish, and soon the whole party made a good catch, which they ate raw. During the remainder of the voyage tbe passengers spent a portion of each day la fishing, this being their only pleasure. The Evelena arrived at PortHawkesburg on Oct. 8 and put in there for provisions. A barrel of cabbage was bought and opened on the deck. Within fifteen min utes every bit of the contents of that bar rel had disappeared, the passengers having eaten all parts of the vegetable. Some ap ples were offered to them. They tasted the fruit, but it was not to their liking, and they have not since accepted any. Raw potatoes and raw turnips are eaten with a relish. .New York Tribune. An After Election Conversation. Two boys were overheard Wednesday as follows: "I'm glad 'lection Is over. I got forty-two barrels the most of our crowd but Joe Smith bossed us all jest 'cause he stored the barrels In his cellar." "Same with us," replied the other. "We had eighty-nine barrels, fourteen peach baskets, two butter tubs, and then Will Blake bossed the fire 'cause be brought two old mattresses, his cellar cover and three blinds. But, say, those mattressee made a dandy blaze, and he furnished tar, too, so p'r'ap he did have the most." Which would seem to indicate that the rights of bossism are early conceded, and that the retrosjKct of election Is not con fined to the elders. New York Time. For Bent.
