Union men affiliated with the American Federation of Labor are asked not to purchase any commodities without the union label being printed on them. After February 1 all firms now on the unfair boycott list are to be dropped from the list unles3 the unions interested entered protest. This action is taken because the list had grown to an unmanageable size. Delegates Waterbury of the Carpenters, Olsan of the Granite Cutters, and Dris-co- ll of the Massachusetts State branch, were chosen as a committee to attempt the adjusting of the painters' troubles. A resolution was adopted protesting against the employment of the employes of the Government in competion with civilians in any field of labor whatsoever. The convention also indorsed the movement of the Retail Clerks' National Union for shorter hours, and calls upon all organized labor to assist them in their efforts to secure better conditions. Another important resolution adopted calls for the election of the President and United States Senators by direct vote of the people. The Executive Council were instructed to visit the next conventions of the various national railway organizations and endeavor to have them more closely affiliated with the Federation, as the Railway Telegraphers now are. The blue label of the Tobacco Workers' Union was indorsed, and all union men are urged to demand it when making purchases. Handsome souvenirs were presented the foreign delegates, who had created a fine impression, before the final ad journmcnt. The convention was one of the most successful and conservative yet held, and its meeting here next year will mean much for Louisville. Tr Offica Hour horn 8 to 5. Sundays 9 ta 11. e American.

The division received a visit from the county officers of New Albany, which city they will visit in abody next month.

Flushed with victory and in the best of spirits Delegates Walter' Young and James McGill have returned from Detroit, where they represeried the Central Labor Union and Federal Labor Union at the convention of the American Federation of Labor, the greatest gathering of representatives of American trades unionists ever assembled in the United States, briuging with them the next convention to Louisville. Messrs. McGill, Young and Charles Peetz left two weeks ago and labored for Louisville night and day till the time for the balloting to begin Wednesday, when they had the pleasure of winning easily over Scranton, Cleveland, Columbus, Salt Lake City, Galveston and Bay City, Mich. Their victory is the more remarkable from the fact that the Federation has not met in the East for a number of years, and as Nashville, Cincinnati, Kansas City and Detroit have had the convention it was thought by many that an Eastern city, possibly Syracuse, which is a noted convention town, might carry off the prize. However, the Louisville representatives were not to be dismayed and the delegates could not resist the temptation to come here after enjoying a taste of the hospitality dispensed at the Kentucky headquarters. When Louisville was placed in nomination the convention was brought to a standstill, that the formal invitations and telegrams might be read. They were from the Board of Trade, Commercial Club, Central Labor'Unior., Mayor Weaver and Henry Watterson, Cols.

A big force of police was called out and troops were held in readiness. Large crowds assembled at the place of meeting, however, beanng Irish and Transvaal flags. They were charged by the police, who captured some flags. Processions formed in different parts of Dublin were also dispersed by the police. Several persons were injured. Great excitement prevails tonight. The Colonial Secretary fljd wife and their two daughters are staying with Viceroy Cadogan at the Viceregal Lodge.

THe 11 f Thursday evening the largest number gathered together for of some time assembled at Hibernian Hall, the occasion therefor being the annual election of officers of the Society for the year 1900. The new form of initiation devised for this society met the hearty approval of all present, and the initiation of the ten candidates was voted the most interesting yet witnessed. The newly ndded benevolent features are proving very attractive and will assist in greatly increasing the membership. The cost is so small and the benefits so great that many names are expected every meeting hereafter. Those wishing cheap and safe insurance should not fail to investigate the plan adopted by this society. President Thomas Keenan, Thomas Tarpey, Charles Feeney and others addressed the members, and judging from the tenor of their remarks nnd the en thusiasm displayed new life is about to be infused and nothing left undone to bring the active membership up to 1,000. The most important business transacted was the election of officers for the year 1900, which resulted as follows: President Charles Feeney. First Vice President Thos. D.

CHRISTMAS GREETING. "Peace on earth to men" was the angelic announcement of the birth of Him whose mission was of peace and brotherly love to man, and on each recurring Christmas the heart of man responds to the salutation, rises above the sorrows and ills, represses the contentious and auger, turus from the gloom and fears of life to the bright ray of peace, hope and love, and rejoices in the fullness of a heavenly joy that inspires and contributes to the happiness of u all, as becomes brothers, the of the Father of all. May all our friends be filled with that unbounded and unalloyed joy, and have a merry Christmas. chfl-dre- INDIANA LABOR LAWS. catedand an educated BiL'Mw:B(i.(l tu. anion oi laoorinmaiana me resuua ieen is. amoiuous ana capaoie oi dinner. war by many years Charles Ahrens, of the Ahrens & Ott are shown to be favorable, causing something more than the drudgery Charlie Wendling's friends are think Like the overbearing bully that has Company, is home from a visit to West m first surprise, then admiration ; it at which child labor is usually em- ing about barring him from their euchre suddenly got a trouncing, no one Balen Springs.

Long through this sad sojourning My heart and brain were burning With hopes of yet returning To Erin, glad and free. My hopes were unavailing, I feel my strength is failing; And still that bitter wailing Is drifting o'er the sea. But I have yet, thank heaven, Four gallant sons of seven My Irish wife has given To soothe my life's decline; Four youths of noble bearing, Of spirits high and daring, ' Whose hearts are ever sharing Those cherished dreams of, mine. And should my dear land ever Renew the old endeavor Her cruel bonds to sever, Though I can serve no more, Four soldiers brave I'll send her, To aid her and defend her, And thus I still can render Allegiance as of yore. I have one gentle daughter How fondly I have taught her. Of Erin o'er the water An island green and fair; And marked her bright eyes shining As, ou my knees reclining, I kissed her while entwining Fresh shamrocks m her hair. The well shod and well gloved woman bespeaks a person of refinement and breeding as well now as for a century past. There are so many and various styles of shoes now for every occasion that choice can be made from a large line as to which arc really the best fitted to For outthe foot and the pocket-book- . door wear and walking in cold and rainy weather nothing is more comfortable or desirable than the "mannish" boot, which supersedes the rubber overshoe, disliked by so many. In this "mannish" shoe we are following our English cousins, who are noted as great walkers and who have found a heavy walking boot the most comfortable for outdoor service. For walking or driving the derby glove is the proper thing, the thick kid protecting the hands from the cold. A glove should never be worn that has n rip in it. If there is not time to visit tjie shop where it was bought, it can be repaired neatly at home with a needle and fine cotton thread as near the color of the kid as possible. Turning the glove wrong side out and sewing the edges together will take but a few moments and serve one's peace of mind, as a ripped glove is always exasperating to the wearer. Be sure cotton thread is used, as silk will cut the glove. Muffs for bridesmaids are taking the d place ot the bouquets'or fans, but even though winter is here these do not suggest cold weather. Mot of them look as though they were to be carried to a garden party. At a recent swell wedding the maid of honor carried a muff made of Parma violets and Bnde roses edged with sable. Sonic beautiful ones seen recently were of yellow chrysanthemums bordered on each end with mimosa. In the center was a spray of yellow roses mixed with lilies of the val ley, which fell to the knee. These muffs were on a chain of filigree gold and pearls, the gift of the bride. At another wedding the maids had muffs of pale mauve orchids, suspended on turquoise ribbon. Variations can be rung on these to suit the costumes of the maids and the color of the surroundings. time-honore- PIANOS A few more Special Bargains left. BARGAINS - 4 SQUARE- SAt special prices.

By the harnessing of cataracts and rivers electricity will be evolved Of such stupendous power that light and heat will be supplied us without the use of the black monarch, which seems today to rule us with an iron hand. Thousands of tons of coal per day are being saved by the use of electricity. In Michigan a big dam has just been completed that pro duces a 40.000 volt current. The next largest enterprise is the 33,000 volt plant run by a waterfall in.Califoruia. . Buffalo gets electric'Hght'and power frbm'Niag- ara Falls and Toronto will soon be doing the same. All over the world water power is being resorted to in order to furnish cities with the light and heat that formerly were given us by coal. Cinders and grime will disappear and the labor of housekeeping will be reduced when the mighty force of electricity is well and sat isfactorily understood. Great things are promised during the coming years within the domain of electricity and magnetism. But little is known compared to the vast regions that yet remain to be discovered and explored.

At the weekly meeting of the Cnrlow Board of Guardians a resolution was adopted condemning the eleven months' letting system as detrimental to the best interests of the country, The Labor Electoral Association, of the Arran Quay ward, Dublin, has declined to put forward a candidate at the January election, which action will pre vent a split in the National vote. The death took place two weeks ago at Rathkealeof Joseph O'Connor, merchant. Deceased was one of the "Old Guard," and took part in the '67 movement. The funeral was largely attended by National ists of the district, Once again matters are in full swing in the Killaloe slate quarries, and about 300 men are employed. Operations had to be suspended some time ago owing to a landslip or the subsidence of a large quantity of the mountain front from which the slate blocks are quarried. Dungarvan Urban Council has finally decided to erect the memorial to Edmund Power at the corner of the market house. Thus the sacrifice of the yeoman Captain who threw off his English uniform to fight with his countrymen in '98 will be commemorated on the spot where he gave up his life. The Gaelic League in Limerick has made an earnest appeal to all patriotic citizens to help in the movement to revive the national language. The League has undoubtedly done good work, and the classes formed are. well forward in their studies, but all ' the same the mem-lershis not what it ought to be. It is to be hoped that the appeal will have some good effect. The death of Michael Egan has removed from Limerick one of the most respected merchants of the city. Head of one the largest firms in Limerick, with a branch house at Tower street, London, he individually built up a trade extending over Ireland and England. He was connected with every charitable society in Limerick, and his death is deeply regretted by every citizen. On Sunday the funeral of Joseph Mur phy, of Belfast, who for many years was a reporter on the staff of the Northern Whig, took, place, the remains being interred in the family burial ground in Loughinlsland, Couuty Down. The funeral was largely attended and representatives from the several Belfast newspapers were present. The wreaths included one from the colleagues of the deceased on the Whig and another from the Ulster District of the Institute of Journalists. Shortly after 11 o'clock on Monday a fall of a roof took place in Congo pit belonging to the Dungannon Collieries. Peter Hart, aged sixty, residing in the engine yard, Killybrackery, was crushed by a large rock and received severe injuries to his back and one leg was broken. He was at once brought to the surface and Dr. Norman sent for, but before his arrival the injured man expired. The deceased leaves a widow and large family, the majority of whom are grown up. The Limerick Board of Guardians in politics may be a divided body, but they have unanimously marked their sense of the services rendered by Parnell to Ireland. At the last meeting a resolution was unanimously adopted approving of the intended memorial to his memory. Mr. Dix stated that every man in Ireland who owned a perch of land should subscribe to the memorial. Mr. Coffey, solicitor, ably stated the case for the deputation and had a geod lieutenant in P. O'Reilly. A man named James McCourt, of Dundalk, a carter in the employment of Messrs. Cooper, received severe injuries at the Dundalk railway station, from the effects of which he has since died at the County Infirmary. It appears that he was unloading empty barrels from a float, when the horse was touched by one of the casks and took fright. In trying to recover control of the animal McCourt was caught between his own and another cart and very badly crushed. He was about fifty years of age and unmarried.

At a large and influential meeting of the committee and subscribers to the martyrs' monument, held in the Independent National Club, Kilrush, Luke O'Brien presiding, it was decided, amidst enthusiasm, to take early steps to hold a great demonstration in the capital of West Clare on the occasion of the laying of the foundation Stone of the monument, and John Outran was directed to invite James Stephens, John O'Leary, William Redmond, and other well known Nationalists to take part in the ceremonial. The United Irish League was the sub ject of a lengthened discussion at the meeting of the Limerick Guardians, on a resolution proposed by P. Fitzgerald and seconded by D. Clancy. An amendment was moved by Copt. O'Brien, seconded by R. S. Walsh, protesting against the United Irish League as an interference government with constitutional and liberty of the subject. The Mayor spoke against the resolution, describing those who supported constitutional agitation as factionists. As a Fenian he protested d against theories" of poll ticians who were afraid to voice their opinions ou the hillsides. There was considerable regret evinced in Waterford when the death of Thomas Hayden, Sr., wa9 announced on Wednes day morning, December 6. The deceased had reached the splendid age of eighty For over forty years he was two years. connected with the Barrow Navigation Company. He was a Parnellite to his heart's core, and remained faithful to his beliefs to the last. With his son, Joseph Hayden, late Secretary of the National and Literary Club, and other relatives, thcie is general sympathy. On Thursday high mass and office for the dead were held in the Cathedral. The interment took place at the family burial ground, Knockboy, when there was a most repre sentative attendance.

Division 3 will hereafter impose a fine upon all members who fail to attend at least one meeting each month. Division 21 of Worcester, Mass., has appointed committees to arrange for a festival to be given before Lent. The Improvement Committee of Mili tary Division 10 of Lynn, Mass., lately held a sunlight party. The results were most gratifying.

John Grogan, the popular Recording Secretary of Division 4, has been cast for an important role for the entertainment on St. Patrick's night. There were over three hundred couples present at the twentieth annual concert and ball of Division 2 of Nashua, N. H., held in Franklin Opera House. Secretary John Cavanaugh and Vice President Phil Cavanaugh made some telling points and declared their strenu ous opposition to any consolidation. Col.

Maryland now has another division County President Henry Conway recently instituted Division 10 at St. Bridget's church, Canton, with a good member ship. The visiting committees of the various divisions have done excellent work thus far this winter, but none surpass James McCue and Mike Hoban for promptuess and good reports. Walter Joyce, of Division 3, possesses the right spirit of Hlbernianism, and what he says has the right ring about it. His remarks Wednesday evening were heartily approved. The social event of the year in Hibernian circles in East Weymouth, Mass., was the first annual concert and ball of the united divisions of that place. Four divisions were represented. The annual ball of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Anaconda, Mont., was a social success. Mrs. Kate Norris, State President of the Ladies' Auxiliary, has gone to California for the winter. William Patterson and James J. Brown were the recipients of a cordial greeting Wednesday evening. Their presence augurs well for the future prosperity of their division, Their assistance will prove invaluable. The thirteenth annual ball of Division 4 of Boston was largely attended. After a concert of Irish music the grand march was led by President and Mrs. Frank Cassidy. A large nun.ber of division Presidents participated. The Military Branch of Portland, Me., at its annual banquet by a rising vote adopted resolutions strongly protesting against any alliance with England. Sympathy was expressed for President Kruger and his brave men in their present struggle. Monument Hall, Charlestown, Mass., was recently the scene of one of the most successful social events of the season, the occasion being the fourth annual ball of Military Division 37.

A young fellow, Marlowe, out of work and no' chance of making a living, has become a member of the Chi nese Highbinders. He has met Freda on her arrival and pitied her misfortunes, He resolves to aid her and succeeds in rescuing her from her Chinese jailers, Many exciting scenes transpire in these picturesque hannts of crime. Freda finally assumes the character pf a German ba roness, meets the brewer's widow, who is forced into making a confession of her Marlows and crimes and is arrested.
