Tlio Senate Besnmoa CoiixIilcriiUoii of tlio Tniltl Bill-Silver I,cgl�latloii Halts- A Proposed Amondiiicnt to the Interstate Coinmorco law. Washinoton, May 3.-After the reading of tlie journal the house proceeded to vote tipon the passage of the bill for the classification of worsted cloths, as woolen cloths. The bill was passed- yeas, 138; nays, none-the speaker counting a qiiorum, Tlie text of the bill is as follows: That the secretary of the treasury be, and hereby is.authorized and directed to classify as woolen cloths, all imijorts of worsted cloths, whether known imdcr tliu name of worsteds or diagonals, or otherwise. �Mr. MoICinley of Ohio, from the committee on rules, reported a resolution providing for the innnediate consideration of the service pension bill, to which the Morrill service pension bill may be ordered as a Bubstituto, the previous question to be considered ordered at 4 o'cloclc. Mr. Carlisle protested against the adoption of resolutions of this character, which took away from the committee of the whole the right to consider money bill.s and forced the house to vote upou them after a brief debate. The resolution wtis adopted and Mr. Morrill of Kansas took the floor 'in explanation and aiipport of his bill. Ho sai3 that this act of justice had been too long postponed. If the government were to gi-ant a service pension they should do it without delay. . Mr. Yoder of Ohio spoke in favor of the service pension bill which had been endorsed by the Grand Ai'my of the Be-public and other veteran organizations. The minority opposed the Morrill bill, not because it jjaid penisions, but because it did not gi'ant liberal pensions. He charged the Republicans with being \m-true to their promises to the soldier. Mr. Tarsney opposed the bill because it did not discriminate properly between the soldier who sei-ved tlu-ee months and the one who served thi-ee years. Mr. Sawyer of,New York arraigned the Democratic party as opposing pension legislation. "Mr. Eeilly of Pennsylvania, Mr. KeiT of Iowa, and Mr. J. D. Ta3'lor of Ohio advocated the bill. Mr. Grosvenbr of Ohio said that under this bill the pension expenditure would be increased to $li')O,O00,000 annually or 43 per cent, of the gross incoifte of tlie government. After an extended debate, in which Springer of Illiuois, Tunier and Perkins of-Kansixs, and Cutcheon of Michigan participated, the, bill was ordered to a vote. Au amendhierit of Mr. Yoder, providing for a per diem pension,, was ruled out on a point of order. The caucus amendment, reducing the ago limitation from 03 to 00 years, was agreed to. The Morrill bill was then passed as a substitute for the senate bill-yeas, 188; nays, 71. Mr. Yoder moved to commit the bill with instructions to report back a per diem pension bill. This was lost-yeas, 48; nays, 101. The senate bill as amended by the substitute was then passed-yeas, 179; nays, 70. [The bill authorizes the secretary of the interior to place on the peu.sion roll the name of any officer or enlisted man of CO years of age .or over, or who shall hereafter reach'that age, who served ninety days or more in the army, navy, or marine corps of the United States during the war of the rebellion, and shall have received an honorabledis-charge therefrom, at the rate of $8 per mouth. All persons who served ninety days or more in the military or naval service of the United States during the late war and who have been honorably discharged therefrom and who are now, or may hereafter be, suffering from mental or physical disability, equivalent to the grade now established in the pension ofBce for the rating of $8 per month, shall he placed upon the list of invalid pensioners of the United States at the rate of $8 per month. It also provides for a pension to the widow of any soldier when she shall arrive at the age of 60 yeai's, or when she shall be without other means of support than her daily labor.] Senate, Mr. Dolph, from the committee on foreign relations; reported a concurrent resolution, requesting the president to negotiate with thegoveiiiments of .Great Britain and Mexico, vsnth a view of securing ti-eaty stipulations for the prevention of the entry into the United States of .Cliinese from CiuiaclaandMex-ic6, ai:.d he asked for its � immediate consideration. � Mr. IngfulB objected, however, and the resolution went over. The senate resuined consideration of thei .customs administi-ation bill. The amendment offered by Mr. Dawes that incases of the impori�tion of boota, magaaines and periodicals in several parts, but one general; enti-y shall be required, was agi-eed to. �: 'The amendment offered by Mr. Vest, providing that the general appraisers who originally acted on a case shall be excluded from the board of the general appraisers to which an appeal maybe made, was discussed at much length; and, finally rejected. Mr, Piatt offered a resolution which was-agreed to, for a correction of the Oklahoma bill be substituting the word: ."east" for the word "west." ]!^omlnntious, : WABHmOTON,: May 2.-The president sent to the senate the following nominations: W.H.Pettit of Idaho, to Ho surveyor general of Idaho;' S.

SciiANTON, Pa., May 2.-Qoiieral Master ^Vorkniiin Powdi-rly of the Knights of I, abor was seou at his homo by a re-\)(n-Ua- of the United Press. The master woriv-maii had juKt returned from Buffalo, where lie had gone to aid.in adjusting'labor differences. He was asked his views conceming the labor demonstration in New York and elsewhere, and at first .stated that he had nothing to say, and that all sucli information should come from Mr. Gompers, president of the Federation of Labor, under whoso ausiiices the demonstration would be held. Mr. Powderly said that he would ad-(Ireiis a labor meeting in Jersey City this evening, at which time he would air his iilerts conceming thiti groat labor movement. Warming up to the subject later, he said that his iiositipn on this question was two well Iniown to need explanation. Ho had always favored! an eight hour law: The Knights of Labor had also indorsed it, atloptiug a' iirfjimble favoring it at the general aSBeinblj' in 1.S78. :� As he understood it, the demonstrations throughout the counti-y were to convince the jiublic 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 hiiniile for effect aiid that the workmen did not really favor it. After the demoiiKti'ation of to-day it is to be hoped tlieie will be no untrue charges of the kind. ''Tlie movement to secure an eight-hour hiw is a universal one," said Mr. Powderly, "and ,we are all working steadily for it. Within the last few homr. about thirty iiidustTies employing labor have ado^jtod it, and still otlier.s have adopted the niiie-hour rfj'stem. In some inslaucea workmen received but eight hours' compensation, and in others they got ten � hours' pay for eight hours' work. Other industries 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-iialf hour each year till an eight hour system could be obtained ^vith teii liours' pay. This has been adopted by the Union Pacific railroad company, and in three years their men wll be working eight hours daily. 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 lab'or generally. The carpenters are the largest class of mechanics which have ii membership in the federation. The cigarmaker.s are already worlriug on the eight hour system, at least. all who were members of the Knights of Labor are." "You ^viIl see," concluded Mr. Powderly, "that this eight-hour law is a mast righteous one when you remember that a'man can perform between the liours of 8 and 13 in the morning more labor with the implements of the present than two men could iierfoj-m ,iii two days' of ten hours. The genius of 'the mechanic provided this labor-saving ma-chinerj', and it is but right that he should share its benefits. However, the solution of the whole iiroblem wll come when the laborer shares the profits of his toil. As he will then be working for liimself, he can labor eight or ten hours as he may-desire." Colliers Protest Against Steam Holsters, Boston, May 2.-The Colliers' Protective union distributed uxioii the streets an appeal for a boycott upon coal hoisted by machinery. Tlie cii'cular .says that che use of the machinery will throw 1,500 colliers out of employment, besides large numbers of coopers, blacksmiths, rope makers and wheelwrights. XHK SITUATION AISUOAU.

They are on guard at the Palace of the Elysee, Pre.sident Caniot's residence, the legislative chambers, and at other points where disorder is likely to occur.

P.vris, May 2.-The report that Louise Michel was arrested at Lyons is confirmed. Tlu-ee other anarchists were arrested with her.

Tjabor Day at Chicac^o, CHrcAOO, May 2.-Labor's annual holiday is being celebrated to-day by nearly every trade organization in the city. The parade promises to be a monster affair. It is e,stimated that no less than fifty thousand men will be in line. The one significant feature of the parade is that it will in measure indicate the extent of the eight hour agitation, for nearly all the unions that will participate will be found aiTayed on the side of the men who are fighting for a shorter working day. A monster mass meeting will be held on the Lake front after the parade, which wUl be addressed by Judges Tuley, Altgeld,Tuthill and Pren-tlergast. Congressman Frank Lawler, Charles F. Zeib, of the cigarmakers' union, and W. H. Kliver, vice president of the carpenters' council. Settlement in Sight. Chicago, May 3.-The committees chasenby the Carpenters' council and the New Bosses' association met yesterday afternoon and agi'eed upon the thii'd umpire-Judge McCoiinell-who, with Judges Tuley and Briggs, and the committee of six from each organization, will settle the carpenters' sfrike by arbitration. These fifteen gentlemen -vvill meet at the Grand Pacific club room Friday morning, and it is believed all differences will be speedily settled. The carpenters are pleased at the prospect and the bosses are glad that they can resume work Monday on their contracts* Clileag'o Iron "Workers. Chicago, May 2.-Wliile the molders, as a body, are in favor of a shorter worldng day, they will take no united action on the .subject, owing to the fact that a large munber of their men are tied up by contracts. The men employed ill the shops of R. T. Crane & Co., and the men in the malleable iron works on Blue Island avenue have demanded eight hours and an advance of 10 jier cent, in wages. It is expected that their example will be followed by the forces at McCormick's, French's car shops, and other extensive establishments. 'Che Chicago Packing House Strike Off, Chicago, May-3.-At a meeting of packing house laborers last night the prospective strike at the stock j'ards was practically declared off. This action is said to be in accordance with the wish of the American- Federation of Labor, who want to settle the carpSiiterS^'figitt' before another is inaugurated. The decision seemed to meet with satisfaction on the part of a majority of the workmen. The failiu'e of this movement practically iiuts an end to the general movement and greatly reduces the chances of impending trouble. The Boston Carpenters. bostox, Mass., May 2.-The three carpenters' unions of Boston held a mass meetmg last night for final action on the strike question, and the committee on arbitration having reiwrted the failure of all their efforts, it was unanimously voted that aillmen employed by firms which have conceded eight hours go to work as usual to-day, but that all those emjiloyed by the Master Builders' association should stay oiit. It was stated as probable that all non-union men would also quit work. The men are confident of success, and say they will have the aid of the American United Brotherhood of Carpenters, the Amal- famated Society of Carpenters and oiners of the World, and the American Federation of Labor. Dulutli Coal Dock Iialiorers. DULTJTH, Minn., M-ay 2,-All the coal dock laborers here went out on a striike. They were induced to go out by agitators from West Superior,where the dock laborers struck two days ago. About 200 men on the northwestern dock quit without notifying the company of dissatisfaction, and they were followed by forty Pioneer dock hands. They have been getting 40 cents an hour and demand BO cents. The companies refuse to meet the advance and claim to have double the applications for work that there are situations. The Kallroad Question Settled. PiTTSBnRa,May S.-The supreme council of the Federated Order of Railway Employes held a final meeting and decided to accept the propositions of the different railroad companies centering in this city made to their yard employes, which is 24 cents an hour for day coi).-ductors and 25 cents for night, and 18 cents an hour for day.brakemen and 19 cents for night brakemen. This is quite an advance over former wages for this locality. Both sides look ou the settlement aa a victory;____ The Lastera, Boston, May 2,-The Lasters' Protective union convention met here, with 1S4 representatives of sixty-nine branches of the union present. Business in nearly eveiy shoe centre of the counti-y was reported good, Fdward McSweeuy was elected president, Boycottinsr Squires' Pork.
