The proposition to make their pro-
luct more of a luxury was taken up
by the manufacturers after several of
their number bad told doleful talcs of
reduced profits incident to the booms
n the steel and iron market. It was
asserted that self-protection not only
warranted but demanded radical re
vision of the plow price list. Much
discussion ensued as to how heavy the
ncrease should be. resulting in a
recommendation of !." per ccut, with
tacit agreement to make a figure
higher if conditions suggest.
Deny the Trust Story.
The officers of the meeting denied
hat the plow men had been summon
ed to Chicago to talk "trust" or that
Re subject of the proposed combina
tion had ever been broached. The
Chicago Record says that two lead
ing figures in the day's affairs
however, were .1. Harlev Kradley and
C. II. Deere, of Moline .who attended
the New York conference last week, at
which details of the new organization
are said to have been outliued. lhat
they failed to take advantage of dis-
cussiagtthe project with such a rep
resentative gathering of kindred m
terests is not thought probable.

Uon inquiry at the Rock Island
Plow company's office today it was
learned that F. A. Head, vice prcsi
dent of the com nan v. had attended
the Chicago conference and had gone
from there to MiuneapolislAuthow
seriously the arrangements entered
into yesterday would affect the local
concern was not Kuown. as is
known to Akgi s readers, . Mr. Head
has been heretofore TKj.sitive in his
declarations that the Rjck Island
Plow company had not gone into a
trust and would not be affected by
anv that might be formed.
C. II. Deere returned to Moline this
morning from Chicago, where he
attended Yesterday's meeting. He
states there is no truth in the asser
tions as to the formation of a trust;
that the gathering was simply for the
purpose of raising the prices of
implements 15 per cent, which was
done, and that so far as his particular
company is concerned, it had given
option on a certain amount of its
stock in New York for what is to be
called a public company."
Blair Which Mr. McConochie Is
I Lbs Ko Precedent.
The Argus seems to be indulging
in a great deal of unnecessary worri
tnent over Mayor Mcuonocnie s ap
pointments. It feels aggrieved that
men who failed of confirmation should
le appointed afterward, and enter up
on their duties. It was Mayor Meant
we believe, who familiarized Rock Isl
and with the doctrine of persistence
by keeping Officers Kautz and Carnes
on the lorce, and nominating them
to the council over and over again
uutil he gained their confirmation.
The existing situation is not at all
similar to the one which the Union re
fers to. At too time Mayor Medill
made the appointment of the two
policemen there were vacancies on
the force, not of his owncreation, but
which in the course of events had oc
curred. In one of the cases the ap
pointee had proven to be a republican
at that, one of Mcconocme s support
ers in the last campaign, and whose
bi other, upon his demand, is now as
signed temporarily to duty on the jo-
lice force. As it happened, me repub
licao aldermen succeeded in holding
up the appointments and never did
confirm them. It was only when the
appointees happened to have the ad
vantage bv having a majority of the
council present otherwise, that they
were conhrmed. In the present in
stance the mayor is attempting to re
move competent men and substitute
incompetent men. A member of the
council who could prevent such a pro-
cedure and failed to do so would lie
unworthy of the confidence the peo
ple of his ward reposed in liau when
thev elected him. Apart from the
priuciple involved, which, as self-re
specting public officials, the aldermen
cannot ignore, the mayor has made
such miserably weak selections, espe
cially in the police force, that there is
absolutely no reason or excuse for
sustaining them. The Union's refer
ence to the matter simply bears out
what has been suspected all along-
that the mayor is working a stitl
bluff on the council and is desper
ately clutching for a precedent to
hang bis hat on.
Rut he is still carrying his bat.
G. K. Merrymao Entertains at Daw
son City Xogcets for Souvenirs.
Mrs. G. E. Merryraan writes enter
tainingly to friends of life at Dawson, in
the Klondike district. She says she
has enjoyed the novelty of life there,
but stales that the doctor and she are
coming out this summer to dwell in
civilization, but will wait till after the
spring clean-up, and will leave the
country for good on the last boat down
the Yukon, though they have not yet
fully decided whether they will come
ont by St. Michael's or go up the river
and come out via White Pass and
Skagway, and touch at Juneau.
Mrs. Merry man recently gave a
party at Dawson, which was quite a
society event, the guests including
Mr.'McCook, the American consul.
The event probably lacked the hot
house plants and the foliago decora
tions of such a function in the states.
yet the cabin house was bright and
sparkling. Mounted nuggets were
pinned on the lapel of the coats of
the gentlemen guests, and the ladies
received similar souvenirs.
Dr. Merryman has turned hisatt'en
tion to mining, having given up his
medical practice some time ago, after
the Canadain government denied the
American physicians the right to prae
tice in that territory, tor several
months the doctor has been engaged
in developing some of the claims on
Hunker and Kldorado creeks in which
he holds an interest, and will wait till
the dirt is washed out in the spring
before coming out. lIo8a-s he never
wants to spend another winter in the
