Gilford has been spoken of as a possible candidate , but his following hero is not very strong and ho is considered ua a poslbillty of no great power. For months Dakota people , In talk ing over the situation , have intimated that in the event of the shelving of Judge Moody the soiiutorship would iu all probabil ity go to governor Mollctto , who Is ono of the most popular men in th'o republican party in tbo whole stnto.

The general ns- scmbly of the Knights of Labor convened this morning with about 20J delegates present. General Master Workman Powderly read tbo annual address , after which the assembly ml- journed until tomorrow. A public reception was tendered the delegates this afternoon , at which several thousand people assembled. Powderly , In his annual speech , touching upon the economic policy of the government , said in part ; " .Wo hnvo not , ns nn order , adopted tbo tariff or anti-tariff clause in our , preamble and I do not advlso such a thing now. Wo should , however , throw open the 0 oora of our assemblies for the discussion of this great problem so thut members may become - come educated in tbo buslo principles of pro tection and frco trado. I recommend that on and after January next it shall bo permissible for local assemblies to discuss the quostiou which will bring the greatest good to the greatest num ber high tariff or free trade. Thus wo do not commit the order to cither school , and yet allow our members to take up for discussion und agitation the vital ques'tion , Upon tlio question of maintaining legislative commit tees , Powderly thought if the assembly do- cldcd to maintain thorn It should also decldo what measures they shall advosato ; how far they , muy go , and with whom they tuny co-op- crate , so that they may not bo considered le gitimate prey of every faction nud political party. Mr. Powderly dwelt ut length upon the Now York Central strike. Ho said in part : "Individual effort In the direction of the ameliorating the conditions that were not easy ot endurance had proved abortive. Pub- lie oflicluls were appealed to here and thcie , but nothing over curno of it. The publio press , from Uuffalo to Now York , was , with but few honorable exceptions , under tbo la- lluenco of the Vatulerbilt .system , with the chosen servitors of the publio traveling on passes ; with editors of papers along the road subsidized in the sumo inuuncr It bo- cnmo impossible for workmen to got the pub lic ear , or place their grievance before the olllciuls of the company without subjecting themselves to dismissal. Referring to the visits of the committees of meu to railway ofllcials Powderly said ! "Tho idea of meeting on a level of equality with the ompioyos for the purpose of alscussing the terms of agreement was repugnant to the men whoso aristocratic tendencies were given birth beneath tlio shadow of the house of Vnndcrbilt , and the means to put a stop to thcso importunities were sought for. The plan of picking off the spokesman iu order to terrify others was resorted to and ono after another was discharged iu the hope that the lesson would bo of practical value to the com pany in terrorizing the rank and filo. " Referring to his correspondence with Mas ter Workman Leo , Powderly said : "Many malicious persons and papers presumed to in terpret my language ns being iu favor of a conspiracy to get * up a strike either during the "presidential year or when the world's fair was in progress. What 1 said was that if the organization could bo kept up until the world's fair the New York Central would not bo able to refuse any just concession. Those who saw conspiracy In thut sentence would , If they were Just , say that no Just concession should bo refused in any year. I am opposed to strikes , my views on the subject are well known ; but if men are to gain anything they must be or ganized. They must bo prepared to strike , oven though wo never do it. If wo must have strikes , then wo should prepare for thenmnd not allow every subordinate to rush the order. Into them at a moment's notice without preparation. If 18U3 should bo the best year to gain what is Just nnd right nnd proper for labor and a flat refusal should bo given , that would bo the best year to btriko ana not at a tlmo when no preparation has been made. During the Now York Central strike wo had an opportunity to learn who our friends were among , newspapers and found they were exceedingly fow. Wo were given quantities of counsel , warning and con- suro. Many papers friendly to us did not seem to understand the situation or necessities of the men who worked for low wages. Since the Central strike ended tkoro were rumors of another on the Erie and the papers began to show there was no necessity for a strike on that road , for the managers nnd workmen were working in harmony. There will always bo harmony between em ployer nnd employe when the former has it in his power to dictate what au employe shall cat , drink and wear. When the employer has the monopoly of the market he has also the monopoly of harmony that some of our papers pruto about so much. Wo see the editor of a Now York paper ana president of the Now York Central railroad operat ing * the raising of funds to feed men and women In Ireland who have been robbed through exactly the same dia bolical system that is now beginning to rob the workmen of America. That which Is found worthy of pralso in the Irish workman who strikes against injustice is damned In his1 brother in America , when he asks onougn to keep his chlldrcn-out of the poor houso. In order to prevent strikes , wo must innlco every preparation to make them successful when entered upon , and legislation in that direction must bo enacted at this session or your conv Ing- general oftlcers must bo given to under stand that under no circumstances must they take part in strikes of any k'lnd. " Mr. Powdorly advocated equal rights foi both soxcs , the acceptance of the invitation to send delegates to the next fanners' alliance convention ; cooperation ot the Knights ol Labor with the various railroad organizations in the work of federation.

HAS NO CLAIM TO THE AID OF THE COURT , Tlio Itijunutlon Heretofore Issued . Must ho Dissolved An Appcnl Taken and n Hitter Fight in Prospect. Ciucino , Nov. 11 . [ Special Telegram to Tun BRH. ] "If tbo complainant Is seeking to obtain n monopoly of the business of sell ing llvo stock nt the Union stockyards , or seeking to effect a combination by which It can control the llvo stock market , It can hnvo no claim to the aid of a court of equity to no- ' compllsh such purposes. " So spoke Judge Tuloy this morning in deciding a case of vital importance to the public , nud which Involved alight between shippers on ono sldo and commission man and dealers In llvo stock nt the Union stockyards on the other. A bill was filed by the American Llvo Stock Commission company , a combination of cattle shippers , to restrain the Chicago Llvo Stock exchange , comprised of buyers of llvo stock , from enforcing Its rules , which forbid Its members dealing with n corpora tion situated like the complainant. The general manager of the commis sion company hodn certificate of membership In the exchange and when ho was discharged ho refused to turn it over to a new manager , The court was asked to compel the exchange to Issue another cor- tllleato to the now manager , but the former manager subsequently transferred his mem bership to the commission company and-thnt point was settled. It was alleged by the ex change that the commission 11 nil sought to control the price of beef and the commission company contended that the rules of the OK change forbidding its members dealing with corporation like the complainant was in re straint of trade and therefore against publio policy. Tlio court finds that the allegations ns to the complainant being u member of the ex change are not sustained and that ho had lover been u member legally or equitably. The coniplniuaut not being n member of tbo exchange and having no vested rights , con- lot complain of the by-laws and there was no cgnl duty upon the exchange to deal with the commission company ; thus the court cannot pass upon the validity of the by-laws. The only ground upon which tlio court could control an organization like the defendant would bo that such action would bo in re straint of trade , or that the business of the defendant was public juris and affected with a publio interest , nnd the business of the ex change was not so affected. There was no relation or connection between the exchange and the corporation known us * the Union stockyards and the cxcbnngo bus extended no service to the public. N ' 'I know of no law , " says the court , "which 11 force ono man to trade with another , nor any equitablaproceedings bv whichit can bo accomplished. The refusal of the members of the exchange to trade with pei-sous not members may bo iu - partial restraint of trade. but those are the acts of individuals n the exorcise of their rights , of that freedom of action that is ucccsSary to the carrying on of commerce. The injunction - Is sued must bo dissolved. As the only object } f the bill is that of injunction , the bill must bo dismissed for want at equity. An appeal was wltcm from tlio decision and the case will bo bitterly contested in the liigher court. Tbo flayers' Ijonguo Meeting. PiTTSiiuno , Pa. , Nov. 11.

General Grcely Han n Few Itcmnrks to Make on the Snlijout. WASHINGTON , Nov. 11. The annual report of the chief signal ofllcor , General Grcely , says there has been decided improvement lu the condition nnd cDlcacy of the army ns re gards signal practice. The most important event lu connection with the work of the signal corp has been the unprcccdontcdly successful establishment and maintenance of au elaborate system of heliograph signaling in the department of Arizona , longer dls- anccs being attained than over before. Uo- erring to the weather branch of the sorvlco , General Greely says the duties devolving lorsounlly on the forecast ofllcer permit less ban ono quarter of n tnlnuto on the average In which to decide , formulate and e.\presstho forecast for the state or district regarding any meteorological clement , such as the weather , temperature and wind. Rarely can a mluuto bo given to predictions for any particular state or district. " 'Notwithstanding nil dim- iultlcs , there wcro only fourteen occasions est year on which scvcro cold waves wcro not predicted , 03 per cent of all important cold wnves bclnc predicted. Speaking of prnadoos , General Grcely says It appears from data on hand that in no state may n do- tructlvo tornado bo expected oftcner than on an nvcrago ouco In two years , and that tbo area over which total destruction can bo.ex- icctcd is exceedingly small , oven In states nest liable to these violent storms. General Jrcely believes this is u matter of great mbllo Importance , and desired to impress ipou the people nt largo how small are the chances of personal Injury or loss -property u this connection. In conclusion , ho suys bat tornadoes arc not so destructive of llfo is thunder storms , Guessing AlntulicH Are Legal. WASHINGTON , Nov. 11. In response to in quiries made by Postmaster General Wana- maker under date of October 0 as to whether advertisements In newspapers of "guessing" contests in its various pluses are in violation of section 380-1 of the revised statutes , ns amended by the anti-lottery nctof September 10 , IbOO , Attorney General Miller has sub mitted an opinion In which ho holds lu the legativo. The attorney general says in the course of a lengthy opinion : "If the offers wcro not made in good faith it would bo n schema for obtaining money under false pre- .cn < j6s. Being made in good faith the gifts nro doubtless offered with the purpose of In creasing directly as well as indirectly the ; ale of tho.se newspapers nud rendering its business of increased value to those who offer prizes. " "It is clear the statute Is directed against snly such enterprises as arc dependent upon lot or chanco. It will hardly bo contended Iho enterprise under consideration was dependent - pendent upon lot. Was it dependent upon chance within meaning of the statute ! It seems to mo this question must bo answered In the negative. In conclusion It may not bo improper to say this law was framed with n view to the suppression of certain well known and wide-spread ngcnoles for .evil ; and it is corlamly not wise to embarrass Its execution by a strained or unnatural construction iu reaching after practices not thought of as the motive for its enactment.

It was democracy's night. Several thousand wildly-enthusiastic sup. mrtcrs of James 13.

From n signal sorvlco standpoint , the night vns n dismal ono niul It required n peed deal f dcmocratlo enthusiasm If nothing else - o broco n man to the point of making n IOIIR narch through tbo muddy strcoU in the Mil night nlr. But tbo enthusiasm and the other require * monts were apparently equal to the occasion. An hour or more before the tlmo for tha iroccsslon to move , the crowds began pour- tig In fraui all directions , seeking desiratilo ocatlona from which to view the parade , i'ho horn-blower mid kazoo manipulator who > egau exercising bis lungs at 0 o'clock soon ntccccded lu getting a following and nt the hour for parade the streets vero packed to suffocation and tha tolso was simply uproarious. Men , women nnd children crowded each other and good- mturod pnes fought for points of vatitngo "rom which they might view the other turbu- ont yelling mass of humanity that had tha ight of war along the street. On account of the short , notice of the Iciiionstratioii nnd the disagreeable w/athor of the past fuw days , there hud been but lit- lo attempt at decoration along the Una of narch. At the opera bouse , n portrait of the governor-elect , draped with the national coi n's , was suspended In front of the building. Across the sidewalk ut this place ulso was a junner bearing tbo Inscription : "Douglas county voted for Uoyd becausa .hoy know him. " "Douglas county votoil for Richards because - cause they know him. " "It's ' tv great thing to bo well know it , " The resilience mid grounds of ( > cncril l.owo it Sixteenth and Ilarnov streets \\oro brll- lantly Illuminated with Oliineso lanterns , creating n very pleasing effect. The parade was advertised to form and start nt 7 o'clock sharp , but as usual tlicra was a delay of nearly nn hour. Notwith standing too tlio ana ' . , , explicit fretiw'iitly-re- icatcd directions of Mnrshiil Holinrod , tha mrticipants in tbo domonstmtion becnmo woefully tangled up in their line of nmrch. Cnpltol avenue , on which the procession was to form , was dark and gloomy , and tbo clubs and delegations that were to usscmblo m streets wojt of Seventeenth stieet never reached their destination. The Snmospt association was on the ground early anil in full torro. It was headed by it tlatoon of blue coats in command of Sergeant Torn Ormsby. Then cnmo the A. O.

" "No empty houses nnd no convict contracts in Omaha for the next two years. " The personal rights league formed tha second feature of the parado. The different ward leagues met at Washington ball nnd marched in n body to tbo place of formation on Capitol avenue , paying no attention to , ward organizations. The league was beaded by the Musical Union band , thirty pieces strong. President Lund of the Douclas county league , Jolm Bautnor , Chnrle.s Hul- burts ami William Scgclko occupied a car * rlugo and following them came fully li.OOQ members of the league all loudly onlliuslastio. Among the transpaicucics earned by them were the following. "OurPresldent , Louis Holmrod. " * "Wo were born without chains. " "James 13. Uoyd , Our Choice. " "Equal Ulcbts nnd Personal Liberty Granted Us by the Constitution. " "Personal Liberty Has 'triumphed. " The First ward and south side clubs formed on Eleventh street , north of Capitol nvcnuo. The former was marshaled by Councilman Lowry and tlio latter by George Kingston. They comprised uoout two hundred men. Each club carried a Inrco Hag and transpiir * cnces bearing the imnics of the. winning democratic candidates. Hero and thcro a man carried a torch'uud several wore Uoyd ! badges. The Union Pacific band headed the Second ward organizations , which formed together on Twelfth street , south of Capitol nvonuo. George Holmes , Jr. , was marshal of tbo ICng- llsh organizations. Tlio men numbered U50. A transparency showed a fairly good picture of the govcrnor-eloct and enunciated the aphorism , "Tho state Is safe" and "Pro hibition is knocked out forever in No * braska. " The Third ward club failed In coming to tlmo so far us numbers wore concerned. Ed Ilothory and thrco others made n struggle to redeem the ward by occupying tin open car riage which struggled into line after the pro cession had reached Fanmm and Thirteenth streets , Arthur Kotbcry was down to do the marshal act for the ward , but owing to his associate club men fulling to put in an np- poaranco in a body 'ho had a vciy easy tlrag of it. it.Tlio Tlio Thqmas Jefferson association , on or ganization now to oven the most enthusiastic democrats , was In the lino. There wore slxty- five of thorn under tbo'conimund of Daniel O'Conncll. They helped to make the night hideous with tbo blowing' of sixty-four tin horns , wbllo the slxty-llfth mun carried a small si/od "float. " There were forty-five of the South End democratic club. H.

The Fifth ward divisionwas in charge of Marshal Juck Contoay with William Mxv Kentia and P. W. Sherlock as aids. There were 100 men on foot and about sovonty-flvo on horseback.
