Powderly addressed the meeting He referred to certain insinua tions made against the management of the knights He denied that he was in 1886 opposed to the eighthour principle He was opposed however to certain meth ods of conducting an eighthour move ment He believed in practical measures A hiss Tlie Retort Invidious Geese and serpents hiss we are fight Ing them right along said the speaker A voice Were working people Here too rejoined Powderly It is a principle of our order that the man works with his brain or his jaw is a laborer as well as he who works with his hands docu ments showing that the knights were the first to suggest the eighthour principle At tbe St Louis convention they fixed May 1 as the date for it This be ing so how could thirtyeight men speat for the whole cjowd

movement to help those who are willing to help themselves He then went into an analysis of the state ment of membership of the federation and asserted that the large apparent membership was made up by claiming Knights of Labor as members of thp fede ration He denied that the bottle blowers 4000 men belonged to the federation They were knights The carpenters and joiners were on the list as 2070 members He did not know how the fact was A dont belong to them voice says they dont belong to the federation The Brother hood of Carpenters are claimed by them as 53240 They lo not number more than 81000 and they telong to us Gives tlia Federation the Lie After going through the list in this Way Powderly concluded I have taken 100 000 from their claim of 409000 including the 25000 locomotive engineers which they claimed If I were to send out such a lying statement about our membership what would our critics say The speaker then spoke of differences of method be tween the two organizations

was an overflow meeting outside the hall which was addressed by T B Mc Quire T P Quinn and J F Quinn Gompers Charges Insincerity after receiving Powderlya let ter replied to the effect that he believed Powderly never expected his Powderlys challenge to be accepted or if accepted the idea was to entrap him Gempers into a packed meeting If Gompure bad not construed thin letter as a challenge and had not accepted it the kntghts would have claimed that it was a challenge and that it had not been met He accused Powderly of being a pettifogger and doubledealer Gompers added that he was ready at the meeting or anywhere else to lepeat prove all that he had ever said about the knights and lie would at tend the meeting under this conditions named in his letter of Thursday if noti fied of
