STRIKE VICTIMS IN ILLINOIS.
William Clark and Thomas
Link Here From Ladd.
Condition of the Idle Colliers
and Their Families.
William Clark and Thomas Link
came to Ho 3k island from Ladd. Ill ,
last night to aolicit aid for their fel
low minora and their families who
are starving. The emissaries of
charity and Humanity called at The
argus cince in company with J. W
W. Cavanaugh. Thsy tell a sorrowful
tale 01 want and famine amone the
men in the employ of the White
Breast Fnel company's coal mines of
Ladd. The colliers have not had
remunerative employment since last
iau, mat is tneir earnings during the
winter were not more than an aver-
age of two-and-a-half days1 employ
ment a wees: wouia Dring in that
time. They live in the company1
nouses wnere tney are required to
pay $6 a month and this is taken out
hrst, and what they have left for
provisions, etc, is hence not suffi
cient for the actual necessities of
life. This was the eonditioa when
they were working. "The mines have
been idle since May 1," said Mr.
Clark, "but early in June they started
up, ana me uu men alter working
nine aays rouna teat their income
amounted to 25 cents per day per
man. Then they ceased to work and
have been idle since. Our mra be
long to the United Mine Workers
and our grievance is the same as
that which it has caused our brothers
to strike in the great mining dig
tricts east ana south. We are sim
ply protesting against starvation
wages. We are willing to work; in
lact are anxious to do so and earn a
TalM of MlMry.
"No one who has not been among
us realizes the extent of the want and
misery that exist in our town and
among our miners and families to
day. To say nothing of the ill-clad
condition of the sufferers, there are
women and children who are actually
starving to death day by day in sight
of each other and within the reach
humanity. There are innocent, help
less, little children on the streets of
of our mining town, whose stomachs
have not contained food for days and
wnose gaunt laces tell more elo
quently than words that I can utter
the story of their dreadful condition
While with the men it is hard
enough, the condition of the women
and children is dreadful.
We have made every provision
for the proper distribution thete of
the funds we recoive. We, in addi
tion to the soliciting and receiving
committees, have a thoroughly or
ganized and trustworthy distribut
ing committee, which attends to the
proper distribution of all aid.. This
committee investigates and keeps
itself posted on the condition of
every one of the 400 families, and
when provisions come in they will
be sent to those most .needful and
apportioned according to the man

Messrs. Clark and Link were at
Sheffield yesterday, where they re
ceived considerable ercouragement.

Bock Island on making known their
mission. They will be here some
days and it is hoped they will re

WHEN IT WAS STARTED.
Tfc PrcMBt CattaIa
"The present insurance rate war."
said a local agent this morning, "can
in reality be traced back to 14 years
ago. It was at that time that cer
tain companies, now embraced in the
union, formed a compact and to such
an exorbitant extent advanced the
rates on insurance that many of our
industries right here in ttock Itlaad
were obliged to draw oat and cancel
their insurance, and to institute mu
tual companies. We had two of
them here in K9ck island, bat the
anion companies made each war
upon them that they were obliged
eventually to cease existence. This
opened the field to other companies
and increased competition. The
anion companies are coming
back with their reductions and seek
ing to drive ont the competition that
they themselves established 14 years
ago. The aim in brief is to break
up competition, and all that stands
against the success of this design is
the non-union company and lta ally
the mutual company."
VERY MUCH BUG HOUSE.
That Was the Appaaranea of tke Pearla
A cloud of ahad flies blew np the
river into Rock Island from the south
this morning and landed on the
Peoria depot building, the west and
north sidas of which were soon coated
with the myriads of the insects. This
is the first invasion Rock Island has
had of these river bugs this year.
and the consequence was an enter
taining discussion about the depot
premises as to lust what they were
Some termed them June bugs, others
morning Dies, sua others lumber
flies, and still others electric light
bugs, but a railroad man capped the
climax when he said the correct name
was railroad canaries. At all events
the insect, swhich appear to exist but
for a day, come from the bottom
lands along the river, and often pur
sue boats, as they probably did to
Kook island last night, are willow
wisps in many respects that is cer
tain. And we did not hear of any
body remarking about "you're not
so many" in gazing upon thorn this

The directors of the Modern Wood

Island ounty court house. Aside
from the routine run of affairs pre-L
parationt must be made lor the great
order to operate under the bylaws
adopted at Dubuque, and which be
come effective Aug. 1.
There have been several changes
in the state deputyshlps made by
Head Consul Northcott, and a few of
the deputies for the territory ad
mitted at the last head camp have
also been appointed. Dr. A.
O. Faulkner succeeds D. C.
Zinck in Nebraska, and C. i.
Byrna succeeds C. 8. Sharrow
in Michigan. Indiana, whioh here
tofore had two deputies, la now
placed in charge of one, O. F. Avery,
a resident of Pontine, 111., who will
make his future home at Logansport,
Ind. C. E. Whalen succeeds T. U.
Love in Wisconsin. C. D. Elliott
has been appointed state deputy of
Washington, and E. C Reeoe. of Or
egon. The deputiea for Pennsyl

been announced. '

Head Clerk Hawes aaya the benefit
fund is in excellent condition just
now, and unless an nnusual increase
in the death rate occurs, there will
in all probability be no assessment
for September. The order since
189J has had 11 assessments anna
ally, and if September ia skipped
there will only be 10 for the present
year, a condition which should be
gratifying to members of the order.
