All Union Men in Rock Island
Quit Work on Refusal
WANT AN INOSIASE IN WAGES
Ask That Minimum be $2.25
The differences which have been
pending between the anion carpenters
and the bosses in this city since April,
came to a climax yesterday, when the
. former held a largely attended meet
ling at the Industrial borne and voted
to stop work.
Today practically all the anion men
were oat nnd the contracting cir-
penters were holding conferences to
! discuss the situation. lljlh sides
!ae firm and both appear con tide at of
The Point of Difference.
The point of contention is the mini
mum wage. Last year the lowest
wages allowed by the scale was 25
cents per hoar or f 3 for a day cf eight
hours. This f priog the only altera
tion demanded by the carpenters'
union wasan advance of the minimum
wage to 2 2o r er day. This was met
with a refusal on the part of the con.
tractor cu the pro u ad that it id an
exorbitant rato to pay for the cheaper
k'nds of labor necessarily employed.
A number of conferences between the
bosses and carpenters have been held,
but both sides have refused to yield
the point. The signing of the scale
would be a mere form on the part of
some of the contractors, as in many
cases they ay all their men more
than the price demanded.
Metal Worker Hay Become Involved.
A result of the carpenters' strike
may be a renewal of the efforts on ihe
part of tbe fcheet metal workers to
gain the ecale they have been unsuc
cessfully demanding. They have
asked a minimum wage of 30 cents
per hour, and have been refused on
the same grounds that the contract
ing carpenters have taken. While
there has. been no general strike of tbo
metal workers, it is not unlikely that
they may join forces with the carpen
tera now and put up a lively tight.

Readlna; mm a Cure.
The practice of reading aloud at reg
ular intervals Is of great lcnefit to npy
one affected with a chest complaint.
In all canes of lung trouble It Is impor
tant to Indulge In thise exerciies by
which the client Is In part filled or emp
tied of air, and reading aloud, singing
nnd whistling are three of those exer
cises. There are many who cannot sing.
and we do not expect the fair sex to
whistle, but reading aloud can bo prac
ticed by all. Care must be taken not
to overdo It, of course, and the body
should le in such a position as to allow
the chest to have free play.
Heading aloud. If we pay attention
to what we are doing, will not only
be benellclal from the standpoint of
health, but will also have the effect of
making us better speakers by teaching
vs proper modulations of the voice and
by increasing our knowledge.
This Is where It has tho advantage
over whistling and singing.

At noon yesterday the four Illinois
and southwest division freight engines
quartered at the local roundhouse on
the Rock Island road formed a cheer
less procession to their new home at
the Hawthorn yards, Moline, and
from that time through freights began
giving Rock Island the go-by."
This morning the roundhouse and
yards here presented a deserted ap
pearance, the switch tracks looking,
as a citizen has expre33ed it, "like the
wrinkles on an old man's face." Em.
ployes of the road were bustling about
preparing for a permanent change of
base, for it had been given out that
ter tomorrow morning no crews for
the trains whose runs terminate at
Hawthorn will be cilled in this city.
This is taken to mean that the general
rule that the crews must live within
one mile of the roundhouse will be
come effectivft, It was very evident
that the employes were not rejoicing
at tbe prospect.
Thirty-one Euciocs Leave.
While there are usually not over
10 of tbe engines affected in the round
