WASHINGTON , Juno SO , The president has
nctod upon the application for pardon ot a
number of convicted criminals. The most
Important case Is that of Thomas Ballard ,
tlio notorious countorfoltar , who was sen-
tencoeUanuary 1,1873 , to thirty years Im
prisonment In the Albany penitentiary. The
president grants him a pardon. In cndois
Ins the application , ho says the prisoner was
supposed to be ono of the most experienced
counterfeiters In the country. He hns bcoi :
In prison equal to moro than fifteen years ,
allowing n deduction for good behavior. Hi
has grown an old man , broken down
physieally and mentally. Ills conduct ha ;
been such ns to cause much Interest In hi ;
case by many gooel citizens and ofllclals. Ill :
wife , who has clung to him with a tuu
woman's devotion all these years , and win
lias almost worn herself out ii
her efforts to support and educate her dauph
tor , just now reaching womanhood , plcadi
for the erring nnd pentlnent husband's ro
lease. There Is a universal belief on th <
part of those acquainted with the case tha
the prisoner's reformation Is complete , am
that In no circumstance could this broker
down man , whoso mind Is fast giving avvaj
with His body , bo u menace to society If lib
erated. "I am of the opinion that in thl
case the law lias been fully vindicated. "
Several pardons were granted to person
convicted of violating the revenue laws am
ono to Jacob Helkle , convicted of bigamy li
Utah. A pardon has been refused In th
case of John Irvine , sentenced In Wyoming
February 20 , U > Imprisonment for life to
mail robbery. Tills seems to bo a bad time
savs the president , to pardon such otTense
when they aio quite lu vogue and their com
mission frequent.

I'liti.AiiKi.niiA , Juno oO. ( Special Tele
gram to the HKIJ. | General Master Work
man Powderly yesterday detailed the facts
concerning child labor gleaned from his long
residence In the coal regions. Ho showed
how chlldien whoso education was neglected ,
as they grew Into manhood , would naturally
gravitate Into Knights of Labor Illiterate ,
Ignorant and devoid of Intelligence. "Those
are the men , " continued Mr. Powderly , "that
the Knights of Labor have to deal with and
If poslblo mold Into something better. Men
who can't read when charges of corruption
are mndo can bo led hither nnd thither by
nny ono who may be iln enemy of ttio of-
tlclals , simply because they cnn't add up n
column of llgures. The Ignorance of many
Knights Is what causes much of the trouble
In locals , but It docs not end here. It makes
the men ttio tools of unscrupulous dema-
goeups and places themlunderlnlluenccs that
about a state of affairs worse than

hope , but It darkened again us lie said : ' 'But
thete Is one question that tlio American
people must take up that locally concerns the
workincmun. It is or will become the burnIng -
Ing question of thedav , an issue which will
excel all others in Importance , and that
question is the problem of Hie great unceas
ing tlood of linmigiation from old Etnope. I

tion pure and simple. 1 think a halt should
bo called on Immigration t'litll ' this nation

these nationalities to enter here and become
a burden on our county ) and n menace to
American homes. As a ruling to decide who
should bo excluded 1 would make It an al
most Inflexible rule that u man or woiimn
who could not sustain liimsolt or herself nnd
their respective families for one year should
not be allowed to land. " Powderly refined
to sav any thing concerning the stalament
that iMcOlynn Intends to join the Kniglits of
Labor. The position of the general board
would probably prevent such an addition to
their membership. Powdorlv and all the
conservative knights are opposed to using the
order to fuithcr any s < | fc\IIMIc , communistic
and land theories. fTiey hold , as has been
clearly evident in recent utterances by Pow
derly , that the mission of the knights Is to
legislate for the best Interest of American
workmen , freofiom all social nnd revolu-
tlonaiy Ideas. While McGIynn will not bo

Nr.w YOIIK , Juno ro. f Special Telegram
to the BIE. : ] The World this morning says :
"Cyrus Field turned o\er tlio remainder ot
his Elevated rallwav stock to Jay Gould yes-
teiday. The amount was 20,000 shares ,
which , with the 50,000 shares previously dis
posed of by Field to Gould , shows the for
mer's total holding to havebeou70,000 sliaies.
The value of Field's big block of block at
5100 n share , which was the market price before -
fore the downward movement began , was
$11,200,000. Ho now has no Interest In Man-
hallan and will retire from the heard of ell-
cctors. Gould will keep tlio lirst lot of
0,000 shares to add to his own holding , mnk-
uc his total interest in tlio stock of the coiu-
mny about S10,000COO. Tlio second lot of
20,000 shares ho will split up. This stock was
mbscribed for yesterday. The World has the
wliola story of Mr. Field's retirement from
oed authority. It was enforced. Ho was car-
ylng his monstrous load on margins. Ho
Had borrowed money from nearly every trust
: ompany in the street on the stock as fast as
lie required It In order to buy more. He
finally cornered thn stock and ran the price
up to 3170 , Tlio fate of his corner was , how
ever , thn fate of nearly all corners. Disaster
overtook It. After the collapse of the cotTeo
and wheat corners nnd the breaking of the
Fidelity bank the trust companies , bunks and
other money lenders glow distrustful and
began to call their loans. The market began
to shrink and Field could not margin down
Ills stock nny lower , as he hail no collateral
on which to raise money. Thursday night
lie and his son Edwardiwont to Gould's hoiuo
nt Irvlnglon. Field told Gould the position
lie was in. He could no lunger carry his
Jorid. Gould was satislied of Fields solvency
if given relief fiom his elevated stock burden
and agreed to take the amount offered
M,000 ) shares at the price It averaged Field ,
which was about S120. Gould came to Now
York next moinlni ; to procure money nnd
complete tlio transaction. It turned out ,
however , that Field was still unable to extrl-
cnlo himself , and yesterday ho went to Gould
and asked the latlcr to take the rest of Iho
stock. Gould agreed to do so and furnished
the money to margin it down. In the earlier
p.iitof the dav Fields face had Indicated
great mental dlstiess. After the deal with
Gould was consummated lie was In most OK-
jcllent spirits. Field , despite his great loss
In Manhattan , Is still n wealthy man. Ho
lias always been proud of the fact that his
name is historical as the promoter of the At
lantic eablo nnd Elevated railway svstem of
New York. Kussell Sage was asked last
nlulit if the statement of Mr.'Fiold's ' complete
retirement from the Elevated railway was
correct , and he replied that It was. "Field
has disposed of all Ills stock , as stated , to
Gould. "
