Tho Clorks Association Wearied of
Trying to Provail on tho Two
Merchants Who Refused to Ob
serve Early Closing, Decido to Lot
tho Central Labor Union Act and
tho Latter Body Meet Sunday.
The early, closing movement has as
sumed that stage where It Is deemed
necessaiy to Invoke tho aid of the Cen
ttal Labor union In ouler to bilng In
line tho men limits in the city who re
fuse to lose nt tl.Srt each evening, tho
hours specified In the ngi cement be
tween the Mei chants' association nnd
tho Association of Clerks g
The struggle between the Cleiks' as
sociation nnd the two merchnnts re
feu ed to, one it Main stieet dealer, the
other of Paik stteet, for It lit s i cached
to a struggle, has been In pi ogress
for seveial months Their tefusal to
obseive the agreement has been a bone
of contention between the clerks nnd
the Mei chants' association The fact
of these two stoics temalnlng open and
making sales after their neighbors had
losed their stores and gone home of
fended the latter, ami when It was
persisted In, It tiled the merchants, and
thete has scaicely been a meeting of
the association for months nt which
this was not a feitlle topic of discus
sion, nnd which on a few occasions
thtew the more romonstrative ones
into u feiment of anger The Clerks'
association was made the tatget of
censure for seemingly allowing these
two merchnnts to continue violating
the agreement without measutes being
taken that would compel the closing of
evetj- store at the hour agieed upon.
The cleiks, on tho other hand, piotct
ed tint they did not care to use haish
mcasiues until cluumstances forced
them to. and they piefeired to exhaust
eveij- othet means before Invoking the
aid of the Central Libor union In
the meantime the two merchants who
have come tinder the bin continued to
sell goods up to any hour that suited
the convenience of buveis, while the
merchants' dissatisfaction nnd anger
giew. The climax came last week
when the Mei chants iseoclatlon asked,
or It might be said, foimally demanded
the clerks to use its pwoer. What
ever it might amount to. to force the
stotekeepers lefeued to close at fi 30.
The cleiks wpip still disposed to pro
long the mattPt In the hope that the
rcnleltrants would fnll In line, but this
hope boie little fruit, and the early
olo-lng movement being threatened
with a sudden death, the clerks hast
pupcI to takp action, and at their meet
ing this week they decided on the
steps which they hoped so long would
not be necessarj- to take
The mattet was placed In the hands
of the gile ance committee, nnd this
body, after canvassing the situation,
was foicPd to tho conclusion that the
bringing of the names of the two mer
chants heroic the Central Lihoi union
was the alternative between the suc
cess or defeat of the enily closing. The
committee leluetnntly took this couise,
but ns It seemed the salvation of the
members. thP dpclslon was agieed upon
nnd Hip- two merchants names will be
piesenteel to the Cential Labor union
meeting tomonow afernoon, for that
body to take what action It may deem
advisable and pioper.
Seloct Councilmen nnd Mayor Kil-
patrick Prosent Him with n
Handsome Meerschaum Pipo.
A very felicitous event took place In
the select council chamber last night
when Mavor J. W Kllpatiick. Select
Councilmen Thomas Bmett, Thomas

Mr. Moon and his wife leave on Fri
day next for n six wcekn' or two
months' stay In England, Mr. Moon's
native home.
Mr. Mannlon called upon Chaliman
Fletcher to announce the puiposp of
the meeting. The doctor admitted that
he had not given the cleik notice of
the meeting, but insomuch as he, (the
doctor), was going away shortlj' and
would probably not letum befoie Mr
Moons' depaituie for England, lie
deemed It wisp to hold a meeting. Tho
mppting. he said, was called In order
to allow the councilmen to express
their i egret at the clerk's depaituie.
and to expies their appreciation of
his services In tho past. Too often in
political life the people are prone to
show up only the bid traits In public
ofllclals. The doctot also scored the
newspaper utterances, what he teimed
unjust ciltlclsms, and mentioned spe
cltlcally the story that several mem
bers had received $2,000 to vote against
0 reitaln measure. When every mora
bei voted ea, he said, he looked In
vain for the paper to use some words
of commendation for the councilmen
who had the pilnclple to reject such
nn enticing amount
Mr Fletcher then piesented the cleik
with the pipe and said that he hoped
when Mr. Moon reaches England It
may temlnd him that he has friends
bete at home nnd that It mav serve
as an Inducement to hrlng him home.
Mr Moon then expressed his thanks
In a few woids He assiued the donors
that when he i caches the othpr side of
the water his thoughts will many times
