BURNS AT THE HEAD
Former Rock Islander General
Master Workman of Knights
WILL PUT LITE EffTO THE OSDEE
Believed Other Organizations Will
Now Affiliate With
In Wednesdy's A kg us a Pittsburg
dispatch was published telling of the
selection of Simon Burns, formerly of
this city, as leader of the Hiyes fac
tion of the Knights of Labor. The
following from the Pittsburg Leader
would indicate Mr. Burns is the execu
tive head of the whole order:
"President Simon Burns, of the
Window Glass Workers1 association,
was elected general master workman
of the Knights of Labor at the general
assembly of the order, closing at Bir
mingham, Ala., Saturday night. The
other ofticeis elected at the general
as mbly were as follows: General
worthy foreman, Leslie McConnell, of
Alabama; general secretary-treasurer,
John W. Hayes, of Washington, D. C. ;
general executive board, J. D. Cham
berlain. Colorado; T. O. Keilly, New
York; J. II. Sanderson, Indiana.
CJlves U antral Satisfaction.
"The selection of Simon Burns as
general master workman is, from the
general labor standpoint, a satisfac
tory one. It is claimed that under
his leadership the organization will
be benefited. Since the retirement of
T. V. Powderly Pennsylvania has not
had representation in the general
master workman's chair. The selec
tion of the president of 'the glass
workers may result, it is claimed. In
attracting a number of organizations
to affiliate with the Knights of Labor.
A well-known labor leader, in speak
ing of the appointment of Burns,
said: 'Burns is an able, fearless,
honest man, and will insist on mat
ters being conducted squarely in the
Knights of Labor or he will tear it
into tatters. His election means a
renewal of life in one of the oldest
labor organizations crippled by inter
nal feuds.' "
New Baggage Rale.
The Hack Island & Peoria road has

$203,000 FOR HOSPITAL
ASKED FOR NEXT YEAR.
The trustees, superintendent and
treasurer of the Illinois Western Hos
pital for the insane at Watertown
have issued their second biennial re
ports. In two years the capacity of
the hospital has increased from 360 to
600 a-'d the surrounding grounds
completely transformed. New build
ings have been erected. The $20,000
infirmary is well under way. The
trustees recommend an appropriation
of $200,000 for the ensuing year.
In the report of Supt. W. E Taylor
a review of the work done and im
provements made is given. He recom
mends appropriations for a society
hall, male dormitory, laundry, parole
ward, refrigerating plant, fencing,
library, improvement of grounds and
repairs. There were 354 patients
at the asylum July 1. 1893, and
since then 208 patients have been re
ceived from other institutions, and
316 direct from county authorities.
During the two years 76 patients have
died, a majority being old. decrepit,
chronic cases. On parole there are 28
patients, while 169 have been dis
charged, leaving July 1, 1900, 620
patients in the institution. It is fur
ther stated that there have been no
contagious diseases, an3 the patients
have been absolutely free from ty
phoid and malarial fevers, vall of
which is attributed to the purity of
the water and the healthy surroundings.
BETS ARE MADE ON
Already there are a number of bets
made in the tri-cities on the result of
the Iowa-Northwestern game here
Thanksgiving. Football authorities
all concede that Iowa has the stronger
eleven and will most likely be vic
torious in the coming contest, but
boasts by the supporters of the Hawk
eye colors that the Chicagoans will
not score has aroused the patriotism
of the local friends of the latter and
there will probably be some lively
betting on this point. Will Sweeney,
an alumnus of Northwestern, said
today that the Chicago team was
going to make a better showing than
it is expected to. He does not look
for it to win over Iowa, but is satis
fied it will at least score.
In addition to the entertainment at
the Rock Island Club Thanksgiving
night, which will of course be the main
event, a number of minor socials are
being arranged for the visiting teams
by the society people of the three
The board of control of athletics at
Iowa State university yesterday re
ceived an offer from Wisconsin for a
post-season game of football to be
played in Chicago Dec. 8. The board
as yet has taken no action in regard
to the matter,, and will carefully con
sider every phase of the question be
fore making its decision, which will
be announced early next week. Pres
ident MacLean and a majority of the
board of control are opposed to a
post-season game, but are willing to
consider this proposition and leave
the answering, in a measure, to the
members of "the team. Should the
oiler bo accepted, every member of
the team would have to vote in favor
of it, as the game would prolong the
season and the consent of every play
er must be had. The management
will not urge the players to answer
either yes or no.
Tte players seem to be divided and
before taking any definite action will
wait for the board, which is composed
of faculty members, to decide. There
is a popular demand that the game be
played, and were the men satisfied
that the contest would detiaitely de
cide the championship they would te
unanimous in voting to play. An
offer from Minnesota would have been
more acceptable than from Wiscon
sin, as Iowa considers that Minne
sota has the best record. As Wis
consin has spoken first it will,
however, receive the first consider
ation, and in all probability be given
the game desired.

DDLLIVER IS HEARD
United States Senator From Iowa
Speaks at Augustana
DEVELOPMENT OF KSTITUTIOUS
Says War With Spain Gave Na
tion Prestige and Credit
in the World.
J. P. Dolliver. United States sena
tor from Iowa, received a warm
welcome last night at Augustana
college, where he spoke under the
auspices of the lecture bureau on
the development of American in
stitutions and government. On the
platform with the speaker was Hon.
C. J. A. Ericsson, of Boone, Iowa.
Mr. Dolliver said that the preparation
and signing of the declaration of in
dependence was but the expression in
concrete form of what had already en
tered deep into the minds and hearts
of the people, and had been prepared
by them and given expression in vary
ing forms by their courts and press. In
the events culminating in Banker Hill,
Concord, etc., and the declaration of
independence, the speaker saw a man
ifestation of the divine purpose in or.
dcring the destiny of the new conti
nent. The rebellion destroyed slavery,
which had prevented the perfect evo
lution of the national destiny, and
cleared the way for the later and bet
ter generation." For the speaker was
persuaded, from a consideration of
the record which can here be merely
referred to, that in everything that
ministers to their true dignity, the
people of today enjoy an immeasur
able advantage over past generations.
The man never stood for so much and
the dollar for so little. And the na
tional life is but a reflection of that of
the individuals composing it, for it
has been truly said that a nation is a
moral personality. From this point of
view the speaker discussed the events
of recent history. A nation has re
sponsibilities toward the world, as the
individual has to h;s neighbors. But
until the clank of the slave's chain
was no longer beard in the land the
natiou was not in position to meet the
obligation imposed upon it by its op
portunities for benefitting mankind.
The war with Spain not only removed
the remaining vestiges of sectional
ism, but gave the nation the prestige
and credit in the world which will
make the light of our institutions
more effective from year to year in
establishing the aristocracy of true
manhood in every part of the earth.
Senator Dolliver is a brilliant and
eloquent orator. He is one of Iowa's
brightest sons and leading republi
cans. He was prominent before the
Philadelphia convention as a vice
presidential candidate, and would
probably have been nominated had
not the powers that be forced Roose
velt to accept. When Senator Gear
died Mr. Dolliver was appointed to
the lniteu Mates senate by dov.
