Washisgtox, April L The sab
committee of the house judiciary com
mittee has been at -work for sometime
on a measure that is proposed to re
lieve the supreme court of the United
States, of a large amount of work,
with which it has beeu constantly
overwhelmed. A large number of
bills for this purpose have been in
troduced and these have been con
sidered and a rough draft of measures
has been practically agreed upon.
Both the house and the senate
committee have gone over the sub
ject to a considerable extent and it is
thought that the bill reported by the
house committee will meet with no
opposition. The bill which is already
roughly dratted, proposes to increase
the circuit courts by the addition of
one judge in each court The dis
trict courts alone are to have
original jurisdiction and appeals are
to be made from the circuit to the su
premo court in cases involving at least
S10.000. involvinc legal questions, con
stitutional or treaty questions, or legal
questions of sufficient importance to
require final decision by the supreme
court, and in patent and copyright
cases in equity. This is in addition to
the usual constitution and admiralty
questions, in which the supremo court
of the United States now has original

Boston, April 1. To-dav was set
for the inauguration of the nine hours
system of labor bodies, but the success
met with was not as encouraging as
anucipaieo. iui over JNew aigjand
the movements were made and had
been looked forward to with
such dread by manufacturers
and contractors, that they
successfully temporized with their
employees to postpone final action un
til May 1st. This brought dissention
in the labor ranks and prevented the
movement from being unanimous.
Most of the organizations made a
stand, however,and numerous strikes
are the result.
In Boston, most of the trades put
the demand off for a month, but the
journeymen, lathers, plasterers and a
large number of carpenters struck out
and. were promptly discharged, the
result being almost total cessation on
building. Besides nine hours, the
laborers want fifty cents per day
In Haverhill the carpenters will hold
off until May, but all the painters
struck for more pay also.
In Providence 2,000 carpenters and
painters are out, and 500 at Portland;
200 at Lowell, and the same at Law
rence; 600 at Springfield, and in most
cases some demand for an increase of
pay is made with that for less hours.
-bmployers of all kinds are making
a 'Jetermined stand against this, claim-
mg extortion. Throughout Aew

but double that number have deferred
actioc. The result has been already,

the condition of winter wheat is very

tho average for the state will fall as
low as Wisconsin. Six counties
only in Illinois estimate the present
condition of winter wheat 100
per cent; all other counties
report the damage to range from 10
to 60 per cent The same state of
affairs prevails in Indiana but several
reporting a good condition. The per
cent of damage is the same. Ohio
makes a better average, 15 counties
in that state reporting the condition
100 per cent or over. Other counties
report the damage to range from 10
to 40 per cent Kentucky
shows a falling off of 20 per cent;
Missouri, 66 per cent; Michigan and
Wisconsin, from 10 to 50 per cent.;
Kansas alone holds her own.
