Mr. John T. Callahan, through a I mem- psita view from those of tife association. He addressed the, committee first, and said the men ought to show fully and conclusively where - the privilege saked for wojld be a detriment. He explained that, as be understood It, it was the intention of the cotton press to bring about 85,000 bales of cotton to the press by this -means that would never resell here otherwise, but. Instead, wuld go late the railroad yard In cars and-- be handled there, and onlv un skilled labor would get the handling of ic xx cueu uui me cotton was get v. ting away from here fast; there Is a big snonater- at South port and another one going up at Port Chalmette. and these monsters are rulltng against ' the middle, and New Orleans is the mid dle. The labor unions would not get anything from Soutbport, neither would they benefit from Port Chalmette. He contended in this ease it waa a fight to get some of the cotton that the rail- roaa is now nanaung, ana wanted the tabor dc en to be assured . that he , had tbr Interests at heart - moat, because he thought he would be at work With them the present winter. ; - .

The first cotton press getting a switch track,, others would ask for the same privilege, and they could hardly be refused. - Then the railroads could eocne along and make offers . to the cotton press owners, and tne next uuns; wuum oe tnat tney-would have one big warehouse on the river front; (hat la, 'they would own all of the cotton presses and- use them as warehouses, and . then good-by to ' organised noor. - iw pra.-B woota come ana less money would circulate among. the labor ing men. - " ' -:t..r -i, . -v-. , Another of the labor - representatives said that the object in : getting - the witch track will be to have -the. cotton hauled to. the ores - bv can1 simI out of the press--the same way, thus de- E riving the teamsters and loaders of any and ling.

The circular letter which the sub-committee reported Is as follows, and was adopted without amendment or alteration: "To the Classified Civil Service Employes of the United Statesr We, the undersigned committee. In behalf of the classified civil service employes of the port of New Orleans, La., are pleased to announce to you that we have perfected an organization in- thla city, which we have styled the United States Civil Service Association, for the purpose of Initiating a movement Intended to become national, the objects of which organisation will be to act nnitedly and with a common purpose to secure such legislation and extension of the civil service rales -and regulations as will guarantee the observance and the faithful carrying out of civil service reform in its letter and spirit- We earnestly Indulge the hope that you will appreciate Its necessity and approve Its wisdom, and purpose, and that you will organize at once and co-operate with us, to the end that we may form a national association, at as early a date aa possible. In order that concerted action can be taken to put Into effect the objects above set forth. Public opinion - Is almost unanimously In favor of a competent, permanent, non-partisan - public service and, we are persuaded, - It - requires only a healthy and well directed effort on our part to accomplish this much'', needed reform. We ; have' the -ut most conhdence- in the ultimate benefits that must result from such a union,. not only to tne individual members directly interested, but to the nubile service as well. In furtherance of the objects of tnis association we nave addressed a similar communication, together with a copy ef our .constitution ami bylaws, to every port ana place in the united states now covered by the rules and regulations or tne civil service wnicn is not already organised. We earnestly hope that we win nave tae Denenc or - your iirnuence and valuable assistance In carrying out the above suggestions, which are for our common good, and ' we invite any suggestion of your own which you think would xurtner our common - interest. "We have the approval of the heads of departments in this city. "Trusting that our future relations may be closer, snd with hearty assurance of our good wm, we are yours sincerely, etc." At the' Initial meeting of the association the organisation, in adopting a constitution, failed to prefix a preamble set ting xonn tne aims ox tne , organization. The everslsht was remedied yesterday by the adoption of the following preamble constitution : We. the classified civil service employes ef the port of New Orleans, La., In order to unite fraternally and to Insist unani mously on a just observance or the civil service rules snd regulations In , the matter of removals snd appointments; to petition congress " snd otherwise endeavor to secure the carrying out of civil service reform in its letter and spirit; to strive to secure unaisturoea tenure during efficiency and good behavior; to develop a competent, permanent, nonpartisan public service; benevolent, to care for and generally promote the welfare of all its members, and to secure fair treatment 'and Impartial justice to ourselves and successors in office, do hereby adopt this constitution :-President John K.

Tne Schools and School Teaekers. The announcement made In yesterday's Picayune that 'be public schools will not open until Monday next was ' received with general delight by teachers: and puplla yesterday. The extreme heat of the past few days has been very enervating, making every one feel a disinclination to work, and it waa a wise action on the part of Superintendent Easton to defer the opening of the session to a coolei period. Mothers also balled the postponement of the opening day, being loath to send their children Into the warm, oppressive air of the schoolroom while the heat continues. - ; . The meeting of the principals and teachers which was to have taken place today has also been ' postponed, the principals of the schools being requested to meet In the superintendent's office next Thursday and the teachers of the first grade on Friday. - , A competitive examination of applicants for positions In the public schools has also been called for the first week In October. Many of ths teachers are still away enjoying the vacation, and will appreciate the respite of a week longer. The Christ lam Woaaaua's Exehsmsre.

A - To Mrs. Muller, perhaps more than to any ether, is New Orleans indebted for the Introduction of trained nuraes and epecal hospitals for women -and children In our midst. 7 It s now more than seven, years ago that the first taainlng school for nurses was established, through the Indefatigable efforts of Mrs., Muller. Being convinced and assured by many., physicians of the great, need of aurh an institution la the south, and the likelihood-, of Its success. Mrs. Muller, as president of the Ladles' TJneectarian Aid Society; called upon the philanthropic people of New Orleans to aid r the. worthy enterprise. -With the memorable Harvest end Wine Growers festival," the last payment on the training school building was made. Then the society rented the. large four-story building on St. Joseph street for" the purpose ot establishing a woman'a and children's hospital, with free wards aad pay wards. It was a success, snd for six years the training school aad hospital struggled bravely on, until lsck of financial aid compelled the ladles to relinquish the work.
