The Character of the Orders Mai. Riant
li Proceeding Voder and the Kspusi
bllisy That la on Hit Shoulders-Men
Should be Glad of the Opportunity,
There has been a great deal of mis
representation eoueerning the re-
uirenient of seven davs labor at
oek Island arsenal under the stress
of war orders, as inaugurated last
Sunday. One ridieulous story in cir
culation this morning was to the effect
that 300 men had been discharged
lieeause they declined to work last
Sundav. The simple facts are that
two men and four Iwys were relieved
of their positions on account of the
new -day order. One of the men
stated that he had work to do at home
that he preferred to that of the gov
ernment, and the other was too tired
to work the seventh day: of the boys
one wanted the lay off and the other
three were detained at home on ae-
couot of relijrious convictions.
To the fair mind there is nothing
arbitrary or unreasonable in the in
creased davs of labor at the arsenal

and if he had increased facilities for
doing the work, and could employ-
even more men than he has he would
still under hi orders feel that every
minute shouwl i give an account
of itself. He must make the very
best possible use of everything at his
command, ana nine is a vaiuaoie a
factor as men or machinery. Some
of the things that go into the equip-
liient of a soldier are turned out at
the rate of ti.000 a dav; others 7.000
and 8,000 a dav. At this rate a dav"s
break counts. The men at the front
are waiting for the supplies. The
field officers are constantly calling
upon the war depart liient for supplies
and the war department is as ener
getically calling upon Mai. Blunt.
There is probably noneamongthe men
one who would more gladly welcome
a Sunday respite than the command
ant himself and he does not get pay
for overtime, either.
l'laln (Juration of Out jr.
When communicated with on the
subject of the Sunday work at the
arsenal, Mai. Blunt said this morn
ing that he was happy that there had
been no objection among the men to
speak of, as he was confronted by a
condition that required that every
man on the arsenal pay roll Ik; em
ployed the full measure of time. "In
a word." said Maj. Blunt.
cannot discuss at this time
the value of a six-sevenths man
as compared with a seven-sevenths
man. The requirement that all men
work seven days a week, anil that
none be retained who do not is not
for its disciplinary effect as we have a
splendid corps of workmen who do
not need disciplining. It is simply
mandatory that we make every
facility count for gettiug our work

that admits of discussion from any
other standpoint than that which con
fronts us in the practical and abso

Petition Bearing About One Thousand
Names Asking That the Contractors lie
Obliged to l.lve Ip to Agreement
Adopted at Last Night's Meeting -Said
Teams Art to be Imported.
Mnch feeling is rife in thy city,
among the union lalmr puople in par
ticular, against the Sennott Construc
tion company, of Chicago, in view of
its refusal to employ Kock Island
teamsters at the standard scale of
wages, $3 per day. and eight hour
work. A petition bearing the signa
tures of no less than 1,000 citizens,
was presented at the council meetin
last night, demanding that the con
tractors on the reservoir excavation
be obliged to lie up to the provisions
of the specification under which thev
accepted the work. A resolution in
harmony with this request was pre
sented bv Aid. Pender and unani
mously adopted, the matter Mag re
ferred to a committee consisting of
Mayor Medill and Aids. Maiickersur-
luan and Johnson.
A' committee from the Tri-City
Lalwr congress headed by John Nor
ton, of Moline, members'of the Team
sters' uniou. which had for its spokes
man C J. Searle. and an assemblage
of working men which tilled the coun
cil room, were in attendance. Mr.
Searle was iM-ruiiltcd to address the
meeting. He said the Teamsters"
union and the laboring eop!e had al
reaoy neen iavoreu ov me council in
the ndoptiou of the -honr law. and
were not now finding fault. !nt !'n
ply asked asitance in obtaining
rights which thfy believed were jut. 1
He said the Sennott people knew ln-
fore bidding tin the reservoir job that
the union scr.le for teamiii'r in Rock
Island was S3 for a day of eight hours
and naturally based their climates
accordingly, and hence should lie com
pelled to give the work to home labor
and pay for it at the ruling rate.
Ball Kane, of Peoria, have leen
engaged by the Sennott Construction
company to complete the excavation.
It is understood some 20 teams will
be brought here from outside towns,
thereby depriving Rock Islanders of
work they are entitled to.
It is uufortuuate that this difficulty
should have arisen at this time, when
Mayor Medill is striving to rush oper
ations at the reservoir site, in order
that the plant will lie running by win
ter, furnishing to the resident 'of the
city pure clear, water. But the con
tractor must live up to their agree
ments, and while the contract in
question docs not specify what wages
shall le paid, it does provide for an
K-hourday. and if there is any legal
way in which the city can secure for
the teamsters their demands iu rela
tion to pay, it will do so.
Bids for the paving of Thirtieth
street from Seventh to Eighteenth
