Dethoit, Midi., Doo. 13.-.-EarIy in the itiomiiig of tlio sixth day of tho convention of tho American Fedei'atlon of Labor, tlie consideration was readied of tho most important oxooutivo matter of tlie entiro week, tho position of tlio federation upon the eight hour movement. Tho special committee appointed to formulate the views of tlie federation reported as follows: "Tlio American Fodor.ation of Labor, in convention assembled at Detroit, Mich., ISfiO, roaliirm the declaration made by it upon tho oieht-hoirr question at St. I^uis in X888, ami reiterated at Boston in 1889, that tho oreanized force of tlio irrand army of labor in all centres of industry in Atherica, iu England and Kuropo, are dotorminod to secure a reduction of tlio hours of labor to eiglit per day. We recommend that "this convention adopt tho plau of campaign of 1889 and '1)0, !md that the power conferred by tho nintli .annual convention bo continued and renewed, and that eacli iiliiliated National Union be reguested to assess its members upon the basis provided for by the vote of last year-two cents per capita a weolc for a period not exceeding five oonseoutivo weelcs-in order to secure tho successful issue of tho movement for the eight-hour day. To all who have aided in the triumph of organized labor the A. F. of L. tenders its lioartfelt thanks and summons them anew to grander fields of action. The ei'glit-liour movement of today will make easier tlio six-hour movement of 'tomorrow. It means more wealth .for tho toilers, ,X.ess Wealtit for tlie SpoUcrs. 'Wo roa.ssert our declaration to light it out on this lino until ho who produces wealth enjoys it. .      . "Grand as liave been tho achievements of tho past, glorious as woro the eight-hour movements of 1889 and 1890, tho A. F. of L. summons the wagoworkers of America to boar yet furtiier onward tho banner of eight-iiours, upon wluiso folds is inscribed our battle. ciy, 'Eight hours and higher wages.' "Forward and onward, conirades,forwar.d and onward to victory. "We reaffii'm the decision of the late executive council selecting the miners as tlie nexttrado to move towards eight hours, and recommend tliat the details of tlie niovomeiit be loft to the consideration of tlie incoming executive council. "So long as those M'lio go down to the mines do not o^vn tliem, so long as those who go down to tlie sea iu ships are slaves to the will and oaprica of thoir follow men, so long as the men, women, children of toil produce that others may consume,-Tind suffer that others may on.ioy, will the demand go forth for less hours and more �wealth. "We appeal to all union men and women to increase tho membership and lun'fls of their unions, and in every way aid in the economic education and organization of all wage-earners. Wo appeal to all men out of the unions to join the unions of their craft, that they might be one with us in action as tho^ are one with us in in- terest. Thus united in interests and objects 'wo will shout tho lusty rally from ship-y.ard, shop and mill, eight hours for work, eight houi'H for rest, eight hours for what we will,' FkankIC.

J., Deo. 18.-Tho great strike of the spinners formerly employed in. the Clark 0. N, T. thread works, and the consequent lockout of the framers, carolers, flnish-ers, plocei's and creolers, still remains practically the same as yesterday,' although the strikers ,and looked-out employes are jubilant over tlie prospect of a speedy settle-rnontot the diflScultios which the conference yesterday would sooVii to indicate. It is roportod that Mr. Moore, secretary of tho National Mulo Spinners' Association, presented thfe grievances of the men to tho Messrs. Clark in the true light, and tliat, alter hearing them. Treasurer William Clark promised to give tliem all due coiisid-oration, asking, however, that tho men inost concorned prepare separate lists of grievances, and have their-affidavits attached, to them. Tho spinners believe that Mr. Clark has boon kept in ignorance of the real cause of llio troublo,, which has existed tor several weeks, and been led to believe that tlie men wore impudent and neglected their work. Secretary Moore, m speaking of the strike and tho probable results of the oonfereuoe, said tonight: "My irapros.siou is that the troublo bo-twoen tho firm and its employes will be settled bv Tuesday of next week at the furthest. The conference was very satisfactory in all its details. "If half tlie allegations of the spinners are correct, tliey are certainly in the right, and will receive all tlio protection from tho National Cotton Mule Spinners' Association to wliicli they are entitled." Mr. Moore said ho believed that the company were perfectly sincere in their prom-mise to give a fair, and impartial invest ga-tion of tho"h'holo trouble, and that tiey seemed to have an earnest desire to have the strike and the caiisos which lead to it fully sifted. He said in regard to mill No. 1, that of courso it w!i3 understood that that mill would have had to close down anyway for two weeks during tho progross of the -ivork of erecting new boilers and machinery, and should an understanding be arrived at, work could not bo resumed for a few weeks. In tlie event of the present negotiations being brought to a close and a settlement effected, Missrs. Hughes .and Woods, both of whom aro members of tho national association executive committee, have to go to Fall Kiver and lay tho results of the strike lielore the committee. Tlio company aelciiowledged that before Mr. Walmsloy was installed superintendent no trouble of this kind over occurred. . Tiiey promised to investigate all sworn grievances aiid meet a oommittoo of spinners Monday morning, when it is probable that a settlement will bo effected. m liKIHe Of::iINDS. HOIiDING UB A CLUB. Lynn Morocco Dressers Demand One of Two Things Kight A^way. Lynn, Deo. 13.-John McCarthy, secretary of tho Morocco Dressers' Union, Kniglits of Labor, of this city, will leave for Philadelphia early next week to consult with the leaders of the Ivniglits of Labor in that city, relative to tho strike here. The striking morocco dressers at a recent meeting voted that unless the strike was Settled by Jan. 1,1891, they woixld use their influence to have the duty on French kid removed. The programme istohave organized labor all over the country and the Farmers Alliance urge Congress to this. Bir. McCarthy stated 'this afternoon that the duty of'35 per cent, on French kid was imposed to protect American labor, at least that was tho reason assigned for it, but it was not doing that. Armenians had been imported into Lynn free of duty to take tho places of the Lynn mochaiiios, and tho duty on li'renoli kid does not protect tho Lj'iiii workiugmeii. Jlr. McCarthy will discuss tho matter with the labor leaders in Philadelphia, after which he will go to Washington and interview some of the Confe'rossional labor committeo.__ OUT WITH A ICNIPE.

Hagar of the Salom Norma' School presented resolutions "'on the death of Dr. William H. Lambert, late head master of the B. M. 0, Durfee' high school at Fall River. The special guests of the� club were William T. Harris, LL. D., United States com-mis'sioner of education; Richard G. Moul-ton, M. A., of Cambridge University, Eng., and Rev. A. P. Peabody, D. D., LL. D., of Harvard College. Thetopicfor aftor-dinner discussion was "Formative Influences in Ediication." Mr, Frank A. Hill, president of the clttb, introduced Dr. Andrew P. Peabody, as a teacher who had exercised a formative influence upon young men since prehistoric times. Dr! Peabody said his heijrers might well believe his interest in school work dated back to prehistoric times, for just 64 years ago he was mtister of a country district scliool, ^ome of his pupils being children learning their letters and others young men and women 10 yeiU'S older than himself. "The difference between mere lesson hearing In a school and the daily presence of the highest and'best in a teacher's character is a difference that lasts through life. I havo folt through my M'liolo life the formative influence of the first teacher of whom I h.ave any remembrance; a woman of the highest tone, who afterwards held a commanding position iu tho society of one of oui:colloge towns.      ; ... "What you say or do for your pupils is a small multiplicand; what your character is must be tho large multiplier. On which the product of your work depends. , The force of a strong character is intensely felt, still more the influence of a pure, high and noble character. "Your scholars know what sort of men you are; whether the community holds you m high eatoein at your true worth, or whether you are merely tolerated as a te-apeotable teacher with whose work there is no especial fault to find. "Your scholars feel it and sho^w it, and the memory of it laijts through life. It comes to them when tliey are old men, and old men's memories make early associations very vivid. They are in their second childhood, in the best and highest sense. "Teachers must not only be men of high mor.al tone, but also gentlemen. A teacher who is not a gentleman is not flt for his place. He is a propagator of ill manners and ill manners are bad morals. - The ancients had but one name for manners and morals; I wish we had only one." Dr. Peabody spoke of Mr. Williston, late head master of tho Cambridge high sohool, as a type of the gentlemanly characters that he had known in the teaching profession, and of dopartmentB in Harvard College, like the Semitic department, that drew large numbers of students by� the at-triictivensBs of tho men that stood at tho head of those departments. "Put your soul into your work," said the venerable preacher and teacher as. he concluded his address, "and b^ sure you are gi'owing and learning; wnon you have ceased to loarn. when you have reached th6 summit, stop teaching." The next speaker was Mr. Richard G. MoultonoflCambridgo, Eng., who began by quoting tho saying of an Eastern rabbi, that ho had learnea much from his masters, more from himself and most from his pupils. "When 1 was sent out by Cambridge to do my part towards University extension," said Mr. Moulton, "I thought a groat,deal of myself. For was I not 25? And I spent my tune in spreading ideas and methods that I am now spending all my eiJorts to get rid of. "The flrst principle to take effect was that the number of lectures should be diminished, and their work supplemented by exercises. We now have one lecture a week, then the student works out exercises, and then we havo the mooting of the class in which the lecturer makes comments suggested by the exercises. "Koraembor, these aro exercises, not examinations. In an examination, tho student is invited into a room, away from his books and his ordinary lifo, and asked to givo accurate information ou a dehnite series of topics. In these exorcises he is allowed books and �whatever help he knows how to jet. To be sine, wo do assign subjects for aim to consider, but even hero some lati-t-ude is allowed. "An examination is an unnattiral test; it iB making bricks without stra^w. Or. I prefer to call it a sack race. I don't remember the victor of a sack, race as the best runner, though I have no objection to his getting tho prize. "Now, in the lecture the teacher has his mninga; in the class the pupils have their innings. It is an open discussion, tho teacher commenting on the results of the exercises. The, pupils' influence is thus brought to boar directly on tho teacher, and I must say that my views got from my college training woro gradually knocked out of me by this influence. "The teacher jiaturally has tho academic bent, and the best way to correct it is to bring the influence of the Boholara to bear upon him as much aa possible. "He Is apt to preach to himself, as many preachers in their pulpits do, knocking do^vn tho imaginary Intidels every Sunday; the ouly interest the hearers havo is that of the spectators in a prize fight.  "The next Important influence that 1 consider formative is education, and 1' am afraid tliis will not meet with such hearty approval as iileasure. 'I always made it a main object in my reading to choose the things that gavo mo pleasure. I always had an ineradicable desire to exalt the pleasure side of every "I am un^VidDing to admit that a child has been taught reading uiitil he has been tnught to like reading. In England farm boya como to our national schools, learn to read and pass tlie tests satisfactorily. Then they go back to tho plough, they do not care to read, and In a few years they have actually forgotten how to read. It Is not the fault of the teachers. They ought to bo trained to make and inspire a love for reading, not to try to get the largestnumber ol ijassed examinoos. Dr. Wi liam T. Harris said that in thinking over his talk beforehand, he had begun with metaphysics and with plant life as lie generally did. Tho plant receives from tlie outside world air ana light and heat and food, lut forms itself. Animals form even their own forma, exorcise selection, and things outside of himself exorcise little or no intluonoe upon him. Then the speaker branched off upon the work of the United States Biureau of Education, saying that its work ivivs to gather tho experieuceof the world's teachers and hand it out so that each man could add to himself from the experience of others.
