A. POPULAR ALDER1XAS
WHO DESIRES TO RETIRE
The democrats and people generally
of the First ward are much disap
pointed in the announcement on the
part of Aid. F. W. Plochlingcr, whose
term expires this year, that he feeb
he cannot stand for reelection to the
office he has filled so faithfully and
so well. Mr. Dlochlinger desires it
understood that, highly as he regards
all the kind things that have been
said of him during his term in the
council and much as he appreciates
the disposition that has already been
manifest in the ward to favor his re
election, his personal affairs are such
that he cannot consent to serve lon
ger at this time without serious sacri
fice. Mr. Dlochlinger is one of those
men who. when lie does a thing, he
does it all over. He has been one of
the most painstaking aldermen that
has ever sat in the council chamber.
He has done his work thoroughly and
faithfully. Any duty that has devolv
ed upon him has commanded his best
attention and time, and the result is
that he has proven a model alderman
in all respects. On this account the
people of his ward are not inclined to
let him off. despite the fact he is as
conscientious in the matter of retir
ing as he has been in his service. Mr.
Dlochlinger states that he is willing
to do all that he can in the selection
of a good man as his successor and
desires to express his thanks to all
who have sustained him both in his
election and in his incumbency of the

INJUNCTION AGAINST THE
SYNDICATE NOT GRANTED
Judge Thompson" Saturday refused
to grant the injunction prayed by
'rank E. Ilcrgquist, manager of, the
Galesburg Auditorium against the
Chainbcrlin-llarrir.gti'n syndicate, ot.
the ground that he had no jurisdic
tion. Dergquist, it will be "remember
ed, applied for the injunction some
time ago, claiming that the syndicate
prevented him from booking many of
the best companies at his independent
theatre through giving such compan
ies to understand that if thev did bus
iness with him they could not play the
company's circuit. Judge Thompson
stated lhat it would be necessary to
bring an injunction in every countv
n which the Chanibtrlin-IIarringtoii
syndicate operated and that any writ
he might issue would be useless. In
the somewhat lengthy statement he
made when passing upon the applica
tion he assertel that F.ergquist had
good grounds for action if It could
be properly brought.

That the Tri-City Labor congress
is not in favor of the movement of S.

the meeting yesterday of the follow
"Whereas. S. U. Kenworthy. aided

"Whereas, The street railway com
pany, by its recognition of union la

support, while the action of the said

may be, is a direct blow at the inter

or oust a fair and large employer of

tion has not the backing of or sup
port of the people, all of whose inter
ests, in fact, are attacked by this
move; now. therefore, be it
"Resolved. That the Tri-City Labor
congress hereby condemns the action
of said Kenworthy and Weld as not
only contrary to the public good, but
as a blow to labor, and we demand
that the state's attorney. Weld, shall
at once cease to be a party to this

Action U Popular.
The Argus is glad to see that the
labor congress has put itself on rec
ord on a matter of so much interest
to the general public. There can be
no quest it n that prpnlar sentiment is
oppose 1 to the continued persecution
of a corporation so closely identified
with the development of the communi
ty as the Tri-City Uailway company
has been. That the public is anx
ious the company should enjoy
the full benefits of its privileges in
this city and state has been shown
through the repeated popular action
of thev local-legislative bodies .and in
the Special legislation on the part of
the general assembly a- year ago. in
responding to the demands of the
people that the company not only be
given such reasonable franchises as
are essential to the carrying on of its
business, but that its vested rights be
made as clear and unhampered as it is
pI-sihle t-r them to be made in ac
cordance with the law and the will of
the people. The Tri-City Railway com
pany has not played he part of an
overfed monopoly in the three cities, j
It has given abundant return for cv- :
ery right that has been accorded it
to do business. It has expended $150,
000 in paviug improvements in Uock
Island alone since that system of per
manent improvements was inaugura
ted in Rock Island. It has made an
outlay r f $l(i().0()i) in the best possi
ble equipment built at its own shops,
on this side of the river in the past Is
in nths. It made an outlay last year
of $05. 000 in track improvements in
Rock Island alone, and is face to face
wiih an outlay of a like amount the
coming season in order to bring its
road bed between here ant! Mcdine up
to the requirements imposed by rea
son of the new and heavier coaches if
has installed. Two years ago it built
a new car house here at an expense
of $40,000. while its power plant, now
to be enlarged, is also located in Uock
Island. In fact, its t ot a 1 invest
ment in Illinois alone amounts to
$1,000,000 The disposition of the peo
ple is that the company ought, not
only to be protected in its property
rights. but that it have rea
sonable privileges for the exercise
of its obligations to the, public, and
the representatives of the people have
shown that if any -flaw has existed in
those rights which have been vested
in the company they ought to be rec
tified. To. seek to deprive the com
pany of any -f the privileges that sir?
now reposed in it upon the strength
of a technicality, whether imaginary,
or even real, would be contrary to
every sense and obligation of public
policy, a repudiation of what has been
given in good faith, the spirit of which
good faith has not been broken in a
single instance by the company.
