" General Master Workman Powderly Interviewed. By Telegraph to the Journal, SCRANTON, PA., April 80. General master workman Powderly, of ths Knights of Labor was seen at his home today by a reporter of the Unite Press. The Master Workman had juet returned from Buffalo, where he had gone to aid in adjusting the labor differences. Ha was asked his views concerning the labor demonstration in New York and elsewhere tomorrow, and at first stated rbat h» had nothing to Hay, and tliat all such information should come from Mr. Gompers, President of th« Federation of Labar, under whose auspices the deuiostratiou would be held. Mr. Powdtrl y said that h* would address a labor meeting iu Jersey Git}' tomorrow eveuiug, at which time he would a,ir his idoug concerning this great labor movement. Warming up to the snbjuct Ittter he said that his position on this question was too well known to need explanation. He had always favored an eight hour law. The Knights of Labor had also endorsed it, adopting a preamble favoring it at thegeueral assembly in 1876. As he understood it, to-morrow's 'demonstration throughout the country were to convince the public that the labor element was really in favor of shorter hours for the toilers. It had been alleged by many that the eight hour movement was simply for effect and that the workmen did not really favor it. After the d«iuoustratiou of to-uiorrow it was to be hoped that there would be no untrue charges of thislkmd. I"The movement to secure au eight hour law in an universal one," said Mr. Powderly, "and we are n.11 working 1 steadily for it. Within the last few years about thirty industries employing labor have adopted it. aud still otheri have adopted the niue hour system. In some instances workmen received but eight hours compensation aud in others they got ten hours pay for eight hours work. Other in lustrias pay their workmen ten hours compensation for nine hours work. The plan which I recommended to the general assembly was to reduce the hours of labor one-half houx each year until an eight-hour system could be obtained -with ten hours pay. This has been adopted by the Union Pacific Railroad, and in three years their men will be -working eight hours dailr. I believe that the American Federation of Labor is concentrating its efforts in favor of the carpenters just now, and if they succeed it will be a great gain to labor generally. The carpenters are the largest class of mechanics which have membership in the Federation. The cigar makers are already working on the eight hour system-, at least all who were members of tbe Knights of Labor are. You will see, concluded Mr. Powderly, that thi* eight hour law is a most righteous one when you remember that a man can perform between the hours of 8 and 13 in the mornrng more labor with the implements of the present than two men could perform in two days of ten hours each with the implements of forty years ago. The genius of the mechanic provided this labor saving machinery, and it is but right they should share its benefits. However the solution of the whole problem will come when the laborer shares the profits of his toil. As he will be then working for himself, he can labor eight or ten hours as he may desire." Tin- IMttHbure Trouble Mottled. By Telegraph to the Journal. PiTTSBUilO, Pa., April SO.— The Supreme Council of the Federated Order of Railway Employes held a final meeting to-day aud decided to accept the propositions of tbe different railroad companies entering iti this city made to their yard employes which is 24 cents an hour for day conductors and 25 cents for night, and 18 cents an hour for day brakc- iijcn, and 19 cents for night brakemen. This is quite an advance over former wages for this locality. Both sides look on the settlement as a victorv. M«J-»T and Hopper Fight. By Telegraph to the Journal. ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 80.— A prize fight with small gloves took place here to-night in Lannoti's Opera House, between Billy Meyer, of Btreator, Illinois, and .lack Hopper, of New York, the winner to get 75 per cent, of the gate receipts. George Mantz acted as referee, tteo Northririge was second for Hopper^ and Eddy Meyer for his brother, Billy Me.ver. The fight was a tame one, and was almost entirely confined to bodt biowt. Six short rounds were fought. Ai, tha end of the sixth round Mf yer knocked Hopper under the chin a ferrifie blow and floored him. HH failed to come to time and the fight was awarded to Meyer. About 100 sporting men were present. XHe Chicago I>enion»tration. BT 'Telegraph to the Journal. CHICAGO, April 30.—Labors annual holiday will be celebrated to-morrow by nearly every trade organization in the city. The parade promises to be a monster affair. The many that have spoken for places in it will turn out full quotas and it is estimated that no less than 60,000 men will be in line. The one significant feature of the para le is that it. will in a measure indicate the > xtent of the ei;*ht hour agitation for nearly all the unions That will participate will be found arrayed on tlm side of the men who are lighting for a shorter working day. A mon stwr mass meeting will be held ou the lake front, after the parade, which will be addressed by Judges Tuley, Altgeld, Tuthill, aiidPnmder- grast. Congressman Frank Lawler, Chas. F.

April 30.—The Senate to day discussed further the the Custom's Administration bill. Mr. Dolph, from the commitee on foreign relations, reported a concur- reut resolution requesting the President to negotiate with the governments of Great Britain and Mexico with a view of securing treaty stipulations for the prevention of the entry to the United States of Chinese from Canada and Mexico, and he ai>ked fur its immediate consideration. ilr. Ingalls objected, however, and the resolution went over until tomorrow. • The Senate resumed consideration of MJU cijftoms administration bill. Ths amendment offered yesterday by Mr. Duwec, that in cases of the importation of books, magazines, aud eriodicais in several parts but one eclaration of entry shall be requir I, was agreed to. The amendment ffered yesterdy by Mr. Vest provid- ug that the general appraisers wtio riginally acted ou a case shall be xcluded from the board of three eneral appraisers to which an ap- pal may he made, was dib'cussed at much length. Air. bivu.rt.8 argued against the uieudmeiit on the ground that a earing before a board of appraisers ould not be regarded as in any •use a judicial proceeding. Mr. Vat's amendment rejected—yeas, ); nays, 3tt. The bill was then laid aside. Mr. Platt offered a resolution, hich was agreed to, for a correc- iou of the Oklahoma bill by substi- uring the word "east" for the word "west." After a brief executive session the senate at 5:40 adjourned. HOUSE. WASHINGTON, D. C., April 30.— fter the reading of the journal, the House proceeded to vote upon the assage of the bill for the class fica- ion of worsted cloths as woolen lotus. The bill was passed—yeas, 138; nays, one, the speaker counting a quor- .111. The text of the bill as follows: Thai the Secretary of the Treasury be, and hereby if, authorized aud <ji- ected to classify as woolen cloths all uiports of worsted cloth whether known under the name of worsted cloth or under the names of worsteds, or diagonals, or otherwise. Mr. MoKinly, (Ohio).from the coui- nittee ou rule*, reported a resolution providing for the immediate •Consideration of the Senate service ,jen-iou bill, to which the Morrill Service Pension bill may be ordered a substitute, the previous ques- ;hm to be considered, ordered at 4 o'clock. Mr. Carlisle, (Ky.), protested Against the adoption of resolutions of thin character which took away from the committee of the whole the right to consider umuey bills and forced the House a vote outham after a brief debate. The Oklahoma bill had been taken out of the committee of tht whole with the previous ques tion orderedupon it. The same had been true of the great court bill. If this was not a confession that the iit-w code of rules had failed to facilitate th« business of the house, he did not understand its meaning, (applause on the Democratic nide). Mr. Mckinley argued th»t the resolution was justified under the present cod* of rules and by the precedent, by jthe house ovr which the gentleman from Kentucky (Mr. Carlisle) presided. The Republicaas wanted to do the public business of'he country. What th« country wanted was results aud not speeches. (Applause on Republican side). The resolution was adopted, and Mr. Morrill, of Kansas, tookthe floor in explanation and support of bis bill. He naid this aot of justice had been too Joug postponed. If the government were to grant a service pension it shou?d do it without "MI-. Yoder, of Ohio, spoke in favor of the service pension bill which had been endorsed by the Q. A. R. and other veteran organiza tions. The minority opposed the Morri.l bill not because if paid pensions, but because it did not grant liberal pensions. He charged the Republicans with being untrue to their promises to the sol- Mr. Tarsney opposed the bill .because it did not discriminate properly beween the soldier who served three months and the one who servsd three with which the bill was rushed through. Mr. Sawyer (N. Y.) arraigned the Democratic party for opposing pension legislation. Mr. Reilly (Pa.), Mr. Kerr (Iowa) and Mr. J. D. Taylor (Ohio), advocated the bill. Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, said that under this bill the pension expend! ture would be increased to $150,000,000 annually or 43 per cent, of tbe gross income of the government. After an extended debate in which Springer, of Illinois; Turner and Perkins, of Kansas, and Cutcheon, of Michigan, pai ticipated, the bill was ordered to a vote. An amendment of Mr. Yorder providing for a per diem was ruled out on point of order. The caucus amendment reducing the age limitation from 82 to CO year* was agreed to. The Morrill bill was 1 hen passed as a substitute for the Senate bill. Yeas, 184; days, 71. Mr. Yoder moved to re-comuiit the bill with instructions to report back a per diem pension bill. This was lost, yeas, 48;'nay8, 161. How the the Kei KKHVITK. Condemned Man Re«etve«l rw—The Lesal Question. By Telegraph to the Journal. AUBUKN, N. Y., April 30.—The staying of the order for the electrocution of Williatu Kemruler, as au- nounced yesterday, was a great surprise. Nearly all of the twenty- seven persons invited to witnes* the execution had arrived here, and the electrocution was hourly expected. The writ of habeas corpus secured by Roger M. Sherman, of New York Uity, was issued on the plea that the mode of death to be practiced was cruel aud uausual. and therefor* against the constitution of the United States. Mr. Sherman says he will carry the case to the Supreme Court of the United States. Keuiiuler who is almot>t devoid of moral understanding, was not surprised when the news of the habeas corpus proceedings was conveyed to him. The prisoner was in his eell busily writing his autograph on cards when Warden Durslon went in to announce ths reprieve. "That makes me feel easier," was Keium- ler's reuiavk vrhentha warden told him his life had been spared a. couple of months, and perhaps longer. Then Keuimler walked to his chair and sat down. His face was expressionless and he said nothing to indi«ato astonishment or delight. The future of the case will be one of long protracted litigation. It may take montks or year* 19 gje.t the case fully before the Supreme Court of the United States. Mr. Sh^ruiaive connection with the case is still a mystery. Who employed him? i« beiug askea on every baud.
