ESCAPE OF THE PATIENTS.
Watertowu People Said to lie In Fear of
Commenting upon the large num
ler of inmates that have escaped re
cently from the Watertown hospital
for the insane, the Moline Journal
hints at queer tales regarding the con
dition of things there. The Journal
"The escape of patients from the
Watertown asylum are of too frequent
occurrence. Only a week ago one of
the unfortunates wandered upon the
tracks and was killed near IJarstow,
whi'e doubtless dozens of others wan
der away and are injured or lost track
of entirely. Many other things occur
at the institution " which never reach
the public ear. It seems there is eufli
eient help about the institution to look
after the welfare of the inmates.
"The people about Watertown tell
some queer stories of the conditions
which prevail, and the statement is
made that the residents are in a state
cf alarm almost continuously at the
hands of patients who roam around
and may become violent at any time."

New Rules Proposed by Unions
Affiliated With Tri-City Build
INCREASE IN PAT AND 8-H0TJE DAT.
Become Effective In the Three Cities April
1 , at the Opening of the Building- Season
Organizations to be Benefited Con
tractors Said to Have (iiven Endorsement
to the Movement.
Union craftsmen in the building
trades of the three cities have under
taken a sweeping change in working
conditions. As one of the results of
the organization of the Tri-Citv
Building Trades council, the 13 unions
now affiliated with the council and
this number will likely be increased
to 18 or 20 in a short while have
adopted a minimum wage scale which
provides for increases to the lowest
paid members of each craft and the
8-hour day, which substantially
means an increase in wages to all the
members of each craft.
This change goes into effect April 1
at the time the building season
opens and with the exception of the
Painters union, which has adopted a
9-hour day and a new wage scale.
both of which go into effect March 1
the following unions will be benefited
Carpenters1 unions in each of the
three cities; Twin-City Stone Masons'
union; Tnm-City Plasterers' union.
Painters' union in Rock Island and
Moline; Rock Island Woodworkers'
union; Tri-City Sheet and Metal
Workers' union; Teamsters' unions in
each of the three cities; Plunilra1
union in Rock Island.
Contractors A. latins;.
It is understood that the contrac
tors are assisting the men in their
work bv giving indorsement to the
changes adopted by the unions, and
the result will be a closer bond of mu
tual interest between employer and
employe with vastly improved condi
tions for the toiler.
Evangelist Kerr Says It I the Weakness
of the Church Today.
The large inerease in the number
and seriousness of the congregation
at the revival services in the First
Methodist church last evening indi
cate a rising tide of interest, and
presage successful results. Some
have indicated a desire to begin the
Christian life, while a large number
have manifested a deep longing for
a fuller spiritual life.
The sermon of the evening was by
Evangelist Kerr, and based ou the
words, "I beseech you, therefore,
brethren, by the mercies of (od. that
ye present your bodies a living sacri
fice, holy, acceptable unto (Jod, which
is your reasonable service. And be
not conformed to this world: but be
ye transformed by the renewing of
your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable, anil per
fect will of (Jod." The speaker de
clared his belief that conformity of
many religious people to the world is
the weakness of the church today. As
the Jews of old made a calf of gold and
bowed to it so many professedly-
Christian people now worship a calf of
gold and a calf .if pleasure. The only
way is to be out and out for (Jod. A
temperance society might reform a
man, a bicycle club might deform
him, but only (Jod could transform
him. He pressed upon all the neces
sity of cntirt devotion to Cod for per
sonal reasons and for the sake of the
salvation of the people.
