As fast as the monthly meetings
of the various trades and labor

adopted by the Carpenters1 and Join

recently held at Hillier's hall pro
testing against the board of super,

the board will hear the voice of labor
on the subject, even if Mr. Collins1

committee in their extreme devotion
to him have seen tit to ignore all that
has been done so far.
A I'niun Men's Views.
"We are not obiectine to Mr. Col
lins on the score of his politics, or his
official standing politically," said a
leading labor onion man conversing
with an Argus representative. "Mr.
ollins has shown himself to be the
bitter, unrelenting foe of organized
lauor. sow we no not object to a
man who docs not employ union la'
bor, but to a man who on any and all
occasions lights union labor, dis
criminates against it and has put
lumseii ont to antagonize us and do
us injury because we are nnion men,
we feel we nave a just grievance,
We are not opposing Mr. Collins be
cause of his convictions on the labor
qnestion whether favorable or preju
dicial to labor's interest that it is
his privilege. But we naturally re
sent a man who is organized la
bor's steadfast foe. We have asked
the board not to recognize a man who
so obnoxious to the organized
labor classes, and we are more deter
mined now to present our most vig-
orous protest in view of the snap

Stirred l'p a Whirlwind.
The defiant attitude of Mr. Collins'
friends in the building committee
has, it may be added, stirred up
whirlwind that is not confined to the
ranks of the labor unions. People
regardless of politics have been beard
to express their disapproval of the
manner in which the chairman s par
ticular friends have succeeded in
working him into a position, espoc-
ally at this stage of the proceedings
where the county will be obliged to
pay for his services.
J he committee expected to reach
home tonight from its jaunt, but it
is understood now that in order to
complete its trip, it will not be back
until Monday or Tuesday.

A CIVIC FEDERATION.
Prospect of Oae Betac Formed la Berk
The movement such as is headed
by Dr.' Parkhurst in New York and
the Civic Federation in Chicago look
ing toward reform in municipal gov.
ernment has reached Rock Island.
and a civic federation is to be organ
ized here as described by one of the
leaders to nnite into one non-political,
non-sectarian center all the
forces that are laboring to advance
our municipal, philanthropic, indus
trial and moral interests, and to
serve aa a medium of acquaintance
and sympathy between persons who
reside in the different parts of the
city, who pursne different vocations.
who are by birth of different nation
alities, who profess different creeds
or no creed, who for any of these rea
sons are unknown to each other, who
nevertheless have similar interests
in the well being of our city, and
who agree in the wish to promote
every kind of municipal welfare.

on the subject, a petition in circula

inattention and neglect of the voter,

and wasteful. It will encourage at

principle that the people as the

faithful service from their servants
it will repudiate the proposition that
municipal agencies representing gll

taxes levied upon all. have a right to
use the power and influence thus de

party. The Civic Federation is ab

by the putting on of an additional
carrier, went into effect today. Bv
it a new route is created, sonth of
Fifth avenue, between Fourteenth
and .twentieth streets, which is as
signed to Carrier Henrv Burris. The
business district, north of Fifth ave

Twentieth streets, is now composed
of two divisions. Carrier Walter

Seventeenth and Twentieth, and
Carrier Matt Bogan the part between
