Assembly— Resolutions Cover Important National Is»ueh—To Jfeet ut Chicago Next—Th« Mine Strike Troubles in Illinois. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 18.—The general assembly of the Knights of Labor, which has been in session in this city since the early part of last week, completed its work yesterday and adjourned until thesecond Tuesdayof next November, when it will convene again in Chicago. Yesterday's proceedings were the most interesting and spirited of any day since the session began. Many questions of national significance were discussed, and in each case resolutions were passed expressing the sentiment of the organization on the several matters. The most important matter taken up at the morning session was the suggestion of the adoption of a constitution governing the degree of the Philosopher's Stone, which ia conferred upon every delegate to the general assembly. The suggestion met with the approval of the assembly and a constitution was submitted and accepted. Resolutions Eulogistic of Henry George. Under the conditions of this instrument chapters will be formed wherevei Knights of Labor organizations exist, and members will be allowed to take the degree who have been in the order a certain number of years and who have rendered efficient service?. At the afternoon sessions resolutions were passed eulogizing the late Henry George. Briefly stated they set forth that one of the ablest advocates of labor's cause had passed away, one who had secured greater confidence from the wage-earners than any other man in this decade, and that in his death the workingmen had lost one o{ their most sincere friends. Resolutions were also passed commending the services of Past Master Workman Sovereign. ImlcpemU'iKT*' of Cub t Favored. Other resolutions \verc then adopted as follow?: Declaring unequivocally in favor of the independence of Cuba; condemning the alleged hasty action of the deputy sheriffs in the llazelton affair, and calling upon the government to take such steps as will bring the offenders to justice: denouncing the Cleveland administration for "hatch- Ing" the sale ol the Union Pacific rail- raod. and the present administration for carrying out the plan; condemning the act of th? brewery w.prkers of the American Federation of Labor in seeking by alleged unfair means to force the Knights of Labor employes of the Rochester Brewing company to withdraw in favor of the federation. The executive board was authorized to take such steps as will bring the offenders to account for what is considered a most unfair action. If it is found necessary the board is also authorized to retaliate by declaring war against the product? of all breweries where American Federation of Labor men are employed. CO-OJ'KIIATIVK COLOXV PLANTS. make such ah otrer, 'Out It was nls personal opinion that a settlement could be reached on such a. basis. The figures are uniformly 4 cents under the scale demanded by the miners except as regards the Streator price, which is within !V-> cents of the scale asked by the miners. Sweet refused to name any figure on a gross weight basis In that field. Sweet generally is regarded as the spokesman for the operators •.nd his figures are looked upon as semiofficial. Secretary Ryan said: "The operators won't arbitrate. Mr. Sveet »ys we could' not find three men in the state to whom he would willingly sub- coit the case for settlement." Gotham Tailors Still Striking:. New York, Nov. IS.—The last of the tenth series of strikes ordered within the last four months by the Brotherhood of Cloakmakers here was called off last night, the strikers having secured the desired consessions. The executive committee of the brotherhood will in a day or two outline a plan having for its ultimate purpfte the abolishment of the piece and contract system. The branches of the Prefers' union are becoming restless and the members are preparing for a strike, which does not appear to be far off. FAILURE OF A LUMBER OPERATOR. ALL IN THEIR } The "Special" Reports That the Late Canadian-United States Conference Was a Failure. Pet Scheme of the Order To Be Pushed— Sovereign HHS Ambil.ion. The co-operation board was instructed to obtain all the information possible to carry out the pet scheme of the Knights of Labor and to attempt to establish colonies for co-operative plants in all states where the proper advantages can be secured. The scheme, it is thought, will give employment to thousands of idle workin^men. At the instance of the Window Glass Workers of the United States, resolutions were passed calling for a plan whereby the placing of foreign manufactured glass in the markets of the United Statescanberestricted'and preference given in all building trades to the American manufacturers' article. An effort was made in the resolution to show conclusively that American manufacturers of glass are well able to compete in all markets with the foreign manufacturers. Resolutions were also passed denouncing the check system of paying city employes. This was directed at the claim shavers. The financial question occasioned no end of discussion, and finally resulted in the adoption of resolutions denouncing strongly the national banking system. A delegate to the general assembly from New York city, and one of the most prominent in the body, said that Sovereign beyond a doubt would be a candidate for the nomination for president in 1900. "If." he said. "Mr. Bryan insists an making a fight for the nomination Mr. Sovereign will not oppose him, for the two are warm friends. In that evert Mr. Sovereign will become a candidate for the nomination of vice president. It was Jiatural for Mr. Sovereign to deny the report, as be did not care for the capitalists to interfere this early in his canvass ar.d thus greatly injure him before the fight was fairly on." CONFERENCE OX THE COAL STRIKE. Henry Sherry, of Wisconsin, Assigns All His Property to Fuy *l.OOO.OOO. Oshkosh, Wis., Nov. 18.—Henry Sherry, one of the greatest lumber operators and manufacturers Wisconsin ever knew, a man who had interests in nearly every northern county, yesterday gave up the fight against business misfortunes and the shrinkage of assets and credit due to hard times, and assigned all his vast properties for the benefit of his creditors. The assignee la James W. Cameron, of Milwaukee, formerly associated with Sherry at Vesper, Wis. For three or four years Henry Sherry has been sailing close to the lee shore Of bankruptcy, and several times clawed off only by extraordinary efforts of himself and friends. What kept him above water and maintained his credit was his verified assertion that there was not a "scratch of pen" against hisproperty. A couple of days ago deeds that had been held back were filed against the postoffice block in Neenah owned by him and the storm descended. Some of the banks of this city demanded security, and to save his estate being wasted by attachments Sherry took the step indicated above. Sherry estimates his debts ar.d those of associate companies as less than $1,000.000. He estimates that his assets and those of the associate companies are I'ufficient to pay all the liabilities if judiciously handled. He expects to pay 100 cents on the dollar. ; FINAL TRIAL TRIP OF THE IOWA. Operator Sweet Makes an Offer That It: "Informal." .So *o Speak. Chicago. Nov. IS.—The secretary of the State United Mine Workers has called a convention of miners for Xo\". 19, sit Streator. At the conference Tuesday in this city Operator Sweet was not empowered to act definitely for the operators. He told Secretary Ryan, of the mice workers, that he believed the operators would be willing" to pay 77% cents a ton over a seven-eighths inch screen or 65 cents gross weight in the Braid wood-Wilmington field; 72H cents over the screen or 60 cents gross weight in the third vein fields; and 65 cents over a 1% inch screen In tke Streator field.

IS.—The United States battleship Iowa arrived at the Brooklyn navy yard yesterday, after concluding her final trial trip. Captain Sampson said:- "Tijere is very little to be said about the Iowa's final trial trip I believe that the board of inspectors: will report that the vessel is in every way satisfactory. They will report by telegraph to Washington. We sailed south for twenty-four hours, but at no time during the trip did we resort f. forced draught. "The vessel was under natural draught all the time. After we had sailed south for twenty-four consecutive hours the ship was steered east for an hour, and then northwest for an hour at her maximum speed. She attained about 85 per cent, of her maximum speed under .natural draught, which was about 13Vi knots. In her previous trial the engines registered 108 revolutions per minute, but this was with forced drauhgt. On this last trip the maximum attained wag ninety-four revolutions. AH the guns on board were fired on our way- home, and everything passed off very satisfactorily indeed." TURKEY DID CLIMB DOWN. Snltan Agrees to All the Demands Made by Austria. London, Nov. 18.—A special dispatch from Constantinople confirming- the special dispatch from Vienna announcing that the Turkish government has agreed to the demands of Austria, adds that the vali of Adana and mutossariff of ilersina have been deposed, says that the victim of the outrage, Herr Brazza- felli, will be indemnified, and asserts that the sultan has consented to pay the claims of the Oriental railroad,, which is- operated by an Austrian company, paying the $1.250.000, balance due the company for the conveyance o£ Turkish troops during the recent war with Greece. Thanks to His Well-Wishers. Princeton, N. J.. Nov. 18.—Ex-President Cleveland said yesterday to a representative of the Associated Press: "The number and heartiness of the congratulations we have received on the birth of our son arc- so gratfeuily appreciated that I wish you would convey through the Associated Press our thanks to all the kir.rt people who have thus given proof of their friendliness." Guilty of Parricide and Suicide. Sagir.aw. Mich., Nov. IS.—Julius Eg 1 cert shot and killed his father, Joachin Esrgert. last night and then shot himself in the temple. The elder Egg-ert kept a Ealooc and Julius acted as a bartender. Trouble arose over some trifling matter relating to hi= work, and the young man, who had a furious temper, poured three shots from a revolver into his father, killing him instantly. Mob of Strikers Dispersed. Houghton, Mich., Nov. IS.—The striking trarpmers at Atlantic mine, 110 in number, threatened to prevent the miners working last night, but the assemblage was dispersed by Sheriff Lean and a force of deputies. The mine is working with guards posted. John Kow Has the~World-Beat*r. London. Nov. IS.—The new torpedo destroyer Crane had her official .trial im Stokes bay yesterday. She made 32.U tn»ts per hour. OBJECT THEEEOP WAS ATTAINED, And a Good Foundation Laid for Further Action—Canada >'ot Forcing Any Gifts on Uncle Sum; She "Wants Concession for .Concession, and There Comes in the Matter >'ow Cnder Considerailon—Status of the Vexed Seal Question. Washington, Nov. IS.—The officers of the state department were very much surprised at the reports of the total failure of the Canadian negotiations which appeared yesterday in several morning newspapers from their special correspondents here One of the officials said: "That view is not taken by the government at Washington. The representatives of the Canadian government who have just left this city did not come to Washington with any expectation of concluding any arrangement or treaty during their brief stay. They entertained views upon the question of the sealing regulations, and hoped to acauire accurate information as to the views of our government upon the remaining question which their preceding government in Canada had failed to adjust. The only fact correctly stated in the publications referred to is that under the favorable Influences prevailing the seal experts .»greed upon a report. >"ot Making Us Any Presents. "This report will furnish a good basis for further action. It goes without saying that Canada is not disposed to make a concession upon the seals withoutsome consideration to Canada. What such reciprocal concession or concessions should be is a question not yet disposed of, but continuing under consideration. There has not been the slightest check to the negotiations further than the inevitable delay in the settlement of the sealing question. The Canadian representatives were hospitably received, frankly talked with and participated in a free and frank discussion. If ever irritating questions can be removed between the two countries they can be disposed of under the administrations now charged with the conduct of affairs in the United States and In Canada." Governed by the Paris Award. Some interest naturally attaches to the conditions that will govern the seal hunters in the future, supposing that no arrangement is arrived at between, the United States and Great Britain for further measures of protection. In the absence of an official statement on the subject an answer appears to be afforded by the language of the award made by the Paris arbitrators. That body having in terms decided that the United States had no right of protection or property In the fur seals in Behring sea beyond the three-mile limit from the shores of the seal islands laid down a set of regulations for the guidance of both parties to the agreement, prescribing the conditions under which seals might be taken in the waters of the north Pacific and Behring sea. These are the regulations that govern today, enlarged as they have been by mutual agreement. Regulations Stnml for Five Years. It Js provided in the award as follows: "The concurrent regulations hereby determined with a view to the protection and preservation of the fur seals shall remain in force until they have been in whole or in part abolished or modified by common agreement getween the governments of the United States and of Great Bri-tain. The said concurrent regulations shall be submitted every five years to a new examination, so as to enable both interested governments to consider whether in the light of past experiences there is occasion for any modification thereof." This first term of five years expires about the time the sea! season closes next year, and it is a fair assumption from the language of the award that failing an agreement on further regulations those in force will continue to run. STATEMENT FROM THE COXFEBBEES. Unite in Denying the Kepolte of tlie Specials—View of a Representative. In view of the "special" reports above mentioned Colonel Foster has madepub- lic the fallowing: "The representatives of both the United States and Canada who participated in the seal conference on yesterday at the residence of Mr. Foster deny that they have stated to any correspondent of the press or other person that the negotiations have been broken off, or that an ultimatum has been presented and rejected. On the other hand they state that the negotiations are still in progress.." A difpatch from Minneapolis quotes Representative M. H. Johnson, of North Dakota, in an interview, declaring that the sealing agitation, is a mere ruse to permit a smail and select party to prey on the treasury; that sealing conferences are ridiculous and expensive farces; that the destruction of the seal herds is to be ardently desired on _ grounds of the highest public good; that i reciprocity with Canada is a policy non- j sensical and worUry of defeat, I T:ae seal agitation, he believes, is being prolonged iy men who are its bene- ' nciaries in salaries and fees, and who ' are in a ring. "The Paris tribunal cost this country nearly $250,000," said he. In ail we have spent $2,500,000 In the seal matter with not one dollar of re»urns." Sno-w Falling at the' •'Son." Sault Ste.

Little Rock, Ark.. Nov. IS.— The memory of the most famous crime committed in Arkansas — the assassination of Hon. John M.Clayton— has been revive* by the receipt of a letter by Governor Jones, written from Pitts, Ga., \w ». person signing the name of Luther Akins.

Clayton will b» remembered by politicians and publi« men all over the United States, Clayton was a brother of Hon. Powell Clayton, the present United Ste.tes minister to Mexico. He was the Republican candidate for congress in 1SS9, the opponent being Hon. Clifton S. Breckinridge, late ambassador to Rus?ia. Breckinridge was declared elected and Clayton filed a contest. While this contest was in progress Clayton went to Plummerville to look after his interests there. While in his room one night just before preparing to retire an assassin crept up to the dark and fired a. load of buckshot through the window of his room, inflicting wounds from which he died. The murder created a sensation all over the United States, but the murderer went unpunished. The legislature once offered a reward of $5,000 for the conviction of the murderer, and the reward is probably yel in force. WOMEN~MASQUERADE AS MEN.
