UNITJBD THEY STAND. Consolidation of K. of I. and P. tt of the Plan.. O., Jan. mine workers and Knights of Labor have at last amalgamated. The joint committee of both organizations 'made its report Friday. The constitution presented was taken up by sections and-adopted, with a few slight amendments. It provides that the name of the new organization snail be the United Mine Workers of National Division Assembly 135, K. of L., and the National Progressive Union; thus the names of both old organizations are preserved. The national officers will consist of. a president, vice presi- dent, secretary-treasurer and an execu- tive board composed of seven members. The constitution further provides that any member in good standing- of either the Progressive Union or X. D. A. 135, K. of L., shall be eligible to office under the amalgamation, providing he be- comes a member of both organizations before qualifying. This provision is oc- casioned by the fact that the N. P. U. is an open organization and N. D. A. 135 a secret one. The time of the annual convention is fixed on the second Tues- day in February of each year, the place to be voted upon at each preceding con- vention. This practically settles the whole matter and the remainder of the session will be occupied in routine busi- ness and fixing a national scale of prices. KIDDJLEBEKORB DEAD.

Hotkey aad Cold are the Mala u> the Revival of NEW YORK, Jan. G. Dun A Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade saya: Business has a more favorable appear- ance. Colder weather has brought gen- eral increase of activity and improve- ment in colleofcons. Heavy disburse- ments by the Treasury Department for bonds have brought easier money mark- ets, and several troublesome labor con- troversies have been adjusted. The pre- vailing sickness, though seriously inter- rupting trade and industry in many quarters, is abating at the East. Specu- lation is restricted and moderate in vol- ume, while the payments through banks show a steady increase over last year's records. The official statement of the Iron and Steel Association is particulary gratify- ing, because it shows that, contrary to the general impression, the unsold stocks in the hands of makers did not increase during 1SS9, but actually de- creased tons. The American mar- ket this week, however, shows some signs ol weakness and the Philadelphia market for pig is more irregular, liar iron is dull and less firm, plates and nails are dull, and while two Pennsyl varda mills have marked up steel rails to 836, others still sell at S35. The woolen business has been a little improved for all grades by the colder Weather and is fairly active for cheaper eassimeres and worsteds, with some gain in heavier woolens. Cotton goofls move fairly at firm prices, but the rise in the material causes some disturb- ance. The boot and shoe trade is rather better and orders for several months ahead are reported at Boston, with more buying of leather, while hides remain low and show no improvement. The trade in rubber goods is moderate. Lum- ber and building materials are in de- mand. The coal is made more cheerful by cold weather, but the large accumulation of stock will probably force another suspension of production, THE CUSTOMS BILL. The House of Spends a Day in Discussing Amendments to Mr. McKliiley'.i Measure, WASHINGTON, Jan. time of the House yesterday was almost wholly taken up m iiscuesmg propose fl toms Administrative "bill in Committee of the WTiole. The pending amendment was that ot- tered by Mr. Bayne to Section 15, providing that luring the pending of any controversy or litiga- tion about the amonnt of duty to be paid by any awner, agent, importer or consignee on any im- ported merchandise to the courts, the merchan dise in question shall remain in the Government warehouse and under the control of the Secre- tary of the Treasury. Mr. Flower, of New York, read a telegram from Charles Landen A Co., of New York, pro- testing against the amendment. Mr. Mills sup- ported the amendment. He spoke in behalf of the taxpayer. If an importer paid a higher rate of duty and then sold his merchandise he made the taxpayer Day the duty. Then, when with one band he had taken the money out of the pocket of the taxpayer and had paid it with the other to the treasury, he went into the courts and se- cured a rerating of the duty at the lower rate, thus taking the money from the taxpayer. Mr. Carlisle thought the amendment did not strike at the fraudulent importer, but at the honest importer. A fraudulent importer never wanted to go into court. The amendment was an indirect provision that no honest importer of Soods should be allowed to appeal to the courts for the correction of any wrongs. Owing to the crowded dockets of the courts a decision in an import case may not be rendered for three or ftfur years. K in the .meantime the goods were required to be kept in bond, it would work a hardship on the importer. Mr. Lafollette, of Wisconsin, offered amendment providing that perishable goods may be withdrawn pending litigation. was agreed to, but the Bayne amendment as was defeated. Mr. Carlisle offered a substitute for the whole proposing to allow the courts to deter- mine questions of fact as well law. This was rejected. Some further procrcss tnade with the bllL when the committee rose and the Bouse adjourned. Farther Details of tfce SETTLERS VS. HUTM Killed ud Fov Often Badly UJtred on the Steamer Sardinian.

The Skolfeld left New York November 27 with oil for Batavia, but lost part of her rigging in a fierce gale on December 4 and was with much difficulty towed into St. Thomas, W. 1., by the steamer Ben- larig.

The Augusta post gave a banquet to the encampment last night to which colored delegates were not in- vited.
