Carpenters and Contractors' As
sociation Have Conference,
But They Fail to Agree.
PROLONGED TIGHT LOOKED rOB
Employers Claim There is
Scale Whatever in Ef
A special conference committee
from the carpenters' anion met with
the Contracting Carpenters1 associa
tion at Turner hall last night at the
latter' request for the lirat formal
conference since the strike.
The result of the meeting was not
what had been hoped for. and the
understanding arrived at on both
sides will, from present appearances,
only tend to unite the carpenters on
one hand and the emplojers on the
other for a more prolonged ba.tle.
The contractors claim there is no
scale whatever now in effect, that
there has been none during the past
year and that they are in favor of
continuing the present arrangement.
Lilt Tear's Scale.
A year ago when the question of
ast season's scale wss up ior a settle
ment an agreement was made between
committees of carpenters and con
tractors providing for an 8-ho;r day.
25 cents per hour as the minimum
wage, an increase ol one-naii lor
hours worked overtime and double
wages for Sunday work. This was
approved by the carpenters' union at
a meeting, bnt owiDg to a disagree
ment among the contracting carpen
ters, it was not oflicially approved by
Individual contractors, however,
with one or two exceptions, made
the concessions In private agreement
with their emplojes ana the scale
was in force throaghout the season,
although not signed by the contract
Last night's conference failed to
accomplish anything farther than to
bring out a formal statement 01 tne

THE REASON BAKER
ISN'T ON THE FORCE.
People up in the Sixth ward who
originated and signed Henry Biker's
loag petition for retention on the po
lice force are wondering what superior
power prevailed in the face of that
officer's record of highly creditable
service and the expressed wishes of
his neighbors of the aixtb, regardless
of party affiliations.
Mayor Knox, in justification of his
course in failing to recommend .Ba
ker's reappointment, gives just one
reason: Baker is a democrat and
therefore not deserving of the place at
the hands of a solidly republican
council. Not that the mayor was
wholly averse to a favorable consider
ation ox his petition, but ne implies
that it would have bsen of no use to
nominate Baker in view of his politl
cal bias, and he. as mayor, did not
propose to grate on the nerves of the
council at me very outset 01 ms term.
The consequence is. the petitioners
must content themselves with an ex
cuse for a policeman because the
mayor and council are in accord po

COU IS DENIED
Charles Lowe Discharged On Ac
. count of a Faulty Indictment.
ADMITS THAT EE IS GUILTY
Rearrested On a Charge of Lar
Charles Lowe, who, before chang
ing his address to the county jail,
made his home in a shanty boat in the
west end of town, has had the rather
singular experience of being unable to
have himself convicted of a crime to
which he has on more than one occa
sion confessed his guilt.
Out of employment, without funds
and hungry, about a month ago he
turned thief, consoling himself with
the thought that it was more com
forting to the inner man to be in jail
and served with food three times a
lay than wandering around with an
empty stomach. That is what be
told tne authorities.
He was held to the grand jury for
larceny An indictment was returned
against him. Yesterday he appeared
in the circuit court. Jlle was prepared
to again plead guilty, when his attor
ney told him it would be folly for him
to do so. as he would hive him liber
ated, having discovered a flaw in the
indictment.' The error was pointed
out to the court and the bill quashed.
Lowe, surprised and apparently dis
appointed at the same time, walked
out of the court room a free man.
Bat toiav he was j tiled again.
Bert Dade, from whom tne wheel was
stolen, swore out another warrant
against Lowe, and he will go through
a preliminary hearing tonight.
Tom Antereoa Uld.
Tom Anderson, charged with the
theft of junk from Morris & Lswis'
iron yard, was placed under $100
bonds to await the action of the grand
When Anderson attempted to get
away from the Morris & Lewis iron
yards on Twenty-fourth street last
Sunday he was treed on the high
board fence by two of the firm's em
ployes. Ia time his perch became
uncomfortable and he came down and
was set upon bv his pursuers. A
crowd gathered, and by threats in
duced the junk men to let Anderson
l?o. Tom Golden, who was arretted
fir taking part in the interference
had his hearing before Magistrate
Johnson last evening. A fine of $5
was imposed, but was remitted upon
tne payment oi tne costs.

Murray admitted their guilt, and he
admits having loaned tee others his
wagon to haul the booty. The disas
trous ending of the enterprise may
have been due to the fact that 13
pounds of the metal was taken.

MOLINE BOILING WATER.
Mayor Appalled at the Aatooat Wasted
M stars Ordered.
'Boil all drinking water" is the ad
vice Mayor Wessel, of Moline, gives
to all who use the city water for that
purpose. So great is the amount of
water used in the city and so great
the waste that it has been necessary
to take most all of the water for the
mains from the intake that is in Syl
van water. The inlet pipe leading
from the channel of the river is en
tirely too small to supply the amount
of water. For this reason, the bulk
of the supply comes from the still
water of the slough, which is more
liable to be contaminated than run
Mayor Wessel and City Engineer
Wheelock are aghast at the amount of
water used and wasted in Moline, and
the beginning of an investigation.
which will result in the installation
of water meters generally through
the city, is ordered.
