The formal opening of the Indus-
trial fair at the roller rink oosurred
last evening under the most auspici
ous circumstances. The attendance
was large and the exhibits shone in
all their brilliancy, and the surround
ings had that old time fair-like air
about them. Bleuer's band played,
and there were several delightful
numbers by Bowlby's Mandolin or

master T. H. Thomas, trustee of the
Industrial home, when Gustav Klotz,
president of the Industrial Home as
sociation, announced the commnnse-
ment of the exercises. He first in
troduced Mayor Medill, who made
the address of welcome. At the out
set he took occasion to congratulate
the association upon the beginning
01 a lair wnicn baa every promise of
success, ana reierrea to the generous
manner in which business men and
citizens generallv contributed.
The aim, as I understand it, in
the holding of fairs of this nature,"
continued the mayor, "a primarily
for the purpose of raising money to
meet tne inaeoteaness ooming due
on your industrial home building.
This monument to organized labor
which you have erected with your
own hands, the conception of which
originated in your own mind s, and
construction made possible by your
own efforts and exertion, is indeed a
monument, and every public spirited
citizon should look upon it with
priae ana leei an interest m it and
assist you to pay lor it.
Why Labs Orcanlass.
"The trend of all lines of business
now seems to be toward organiza
tion. Transportation as well as
manufacturing, commercial and
mining industries have combined to
effect their ends, mat is. large in
terests in the same line have asso.
oiated themselves for the purpose of
forcing up or down the price of their
commodities, as the case may be,
thus rendering it absolutely impossi
ble lor a party 01 small means to
compete with them. I might also
add that it seems where such large
volumes ei capital are thus engaged
in the employment of labor that the
first movement for retrenchment or
curtailment in the cost of production
or transportation is direoted against
labor. Whether the element of la
bor constitutes the greater part of
the cost of production cr transports
tion, depends largely upon the arti.
cle produced, but it Is very evident
that labor hrst feels the strong arm
of retrenchment. These reasons and
others I might name are the cause
why labor has organized. Xou have
formed trades unions for the many
lineB of trade and occupation that
you pursue. By the establishment
of an association or congress, in
which all lines of trade unions are
represented, you thus combine all in
terests and organize a most formlda
"The exercise of this power should
be used with moderation. Labor
thus organized, should not become
arrogant and too dictatorial: for in
Its strength lies its weakness. Re
member, the objeot of organizat'on
is mutual protection ior me crait
To transcend its object is to weaken
its foundation. This great power
placed in irresponsible hands may
lose for you that object which you
had hoped to attain. To use it with
care, to be firm in your position, and
reasonable in your demands, cannot
fail to excite the admiration of man
kind, command the respeot of all,
and crown your efforts with success.
Ton will pardon ma if I refer to
a remark that I once made while ad
dressing your association some few
years ago, 'that we must aispei from
our minds the delusion that he alone
labors who labors with his hands.
That the world was caused to move
by means of mind labor.' This as
sertion is partially demonstrated by
tne tact mat you coma not nave
erected the magnificent building that
you nave, were it not that the plan
waa conceived and evolved from
your fertile brain. Thus does the
mental labor come in for ita share of
the credit. Tour association, as I
understand, is composed of the rep
resentatives 01 tne iraae unions,
Tonr unions ae composed of all
skilled labor. Tour skill lies in the
knowledge which you possess thus
does mental labor claim with
physical labor an - equal credit.
It has been said that 'So in
timate is the relation between them,
that the ratio of mental activity is in
proportion to the multiplication of
the varieties of physical labor. Thus
is the clerk in the counting room
or the editor at his desk a laborer.
We are all laborers in a common
field; laboring for a common pur
posethe betterment of our condi.
tion in life.
"We should net allow ourselves to
harbor a feeling against capital as
many are wont to do. Capital is
but a creature or child of labor.
which in turn, becomes the Daren t of
labor. While labor creates capital,.
still without canital wa could not
employ labor. They are so closely
em hated, ao dependent one on the
other, eaoh so necessary for the safe
existence of the other that it ia dan
gerous to estrange them.
"It is only in the abuse of capital
when it has been collected in large
amounts,! has become dictatorial in
11s sway, and lifts its arrogant head
to crush down its associate that we
have reason to cry out and com.
plain. Let it be handled with care.
giving labor its full reward and we
need have no fear of its power."
After a selection by Bowlby's man
dolin orchestra State's Attorney
Searle was introduced and made hap
py remarks of a congratulatory or
der. He spoke of the earnest war in
which the laboring people were car
rying on their worthy cause, aid of
the hearty cooperation they were re
ceiving from most of the people. In
Kick Island, he said, organised labor
knows its rights. But this, unfortu
nately, is not the case in other com
munities, uere organiaea lanor is
recognised and respected by all. and
man respects man no one ia looked
down upon beoause he works in the
saop or tne mine. nr. searie said
thia is a period the like of which
was never before known in the his
tory of the country. Capital has or
ganized, and labor has found it nec
essary for Its mutual education and
protection to do likewite. He was
at a loss to prophesy where the ten
dency toward organization and com
bination was going to end. Loek
how capital is combining its forces.
No wonder the men who toll, who
produce capital, should organize. It
is absolutely necessary. Referring
to strikes, Mr. Searle held they were
illogical. They ought to be settled
by the ballot. He liked to aee labor
organize for protection, and felt that
the tendency toward thought and
study would eventually bring about
a solution of the labor problem,
A finanoial statement of the condi
tion of the Industrial Home bnilrfinir

who said: "It gives me great pleas

The jury remained out all night, re

The case was s hard fought one.
The proponents of the will intro
duced W. J. Entrikin. of Moline,
who drew the first will June 2, 1892.
He said Mr. Connell was perfectly
rational at that time, but was in
great pain, evidently anffarlnir frnm
a protracted spree, and was at death's
door. In this will he left all of his
property to his three nieoes. But
soon afterward he revoked it on oc
count of their alleged illtreatment o f
mm. tv. a. Bieeao testinea that the
will in controversy was drawn by
him; that Connell was sane at the
time: knew all abont his nvnnartw
and remarked that his reason for not
remembering his heirs more gen
erously waa beoause they had
not treated him right, and
that Revs. Fathers Greve and
Mackm had been kind to him
and be meant to reward them by
leaving a portion of his property to
each. Neighbors and fellow-workmen
of Council's were placed on the
stand, aad said that during their ac
quaintance with him they never
thought he was insane. The contest
ants introduced a large number of
witnesses who testified that Connell
had for years been a hard drinker;
had peculiar actions, and some of
them characterised him as being a
weak-minded person. Documents
placed in evidence showed there had
been three Inquests into Co a cell's
sanity. The first in the Rock
Island county court, June S3,
1892, when he was adjudged insane.
He was treated at Mercy hospital,
Davenport, from which ha waa Hia.
