HANDLERS ARE OUT
Freight Men at Local Office of

DEMAND 17 1-2 CENTS AN EOTJE
Strire May Spread to Other Compa
nies in the City and to
Fourteen freight handlers in the em
ploy f the Kock Island road at this
place f :11' c.l their demand for an
advance in wages made about ten
lavs ago with a walk-out this morn
ing. They ha;l leeii put off with tie?
1:11. lei s.ta 11 ding that their ease would
lie taken up at headquarters ami upon
reporting thi morning they were told
that the company had declined to
yield. They did not go to work.
The contention (f the men, as pre
viously stated in The Argus, is that
they are not getting in this eity the
wages that art- paid in Daenport ami
in other larger cities. They have been
working for 11 cents an hour with a
10-hour day and time and onu-half for
overtime. In I)aenport the freight
handlers receive l' e"iits and in I'eo
ria and Chicago IT1'.- cents. The de
mand was for the latter tiiruro. the
hours an 1 pay for overtime not figur
ing. The men claim lhat the platform
here i in suen condition that the work
i exceptionally hard.
Two menders of the force remained
at work and the local representatives
of the company made efforts to in
crease the number during the day.
Cars that were to have been worked
in this city were taken to Dawn port.
It is understood that pressure is be
ing brought to bear to induce the
handlers in Davenport to strike also
for 1V: i-cnts. There was some talk
also of carrying the strife to other
companies doing business in the city,
with a similar object in view.

CLEANING OF ALLEYS IS
TO BEGIN COMING WEEK
Notice to the Public: The city au
thorities will commence leaning al
leys next week in the residence por
tions of the city. That the work may
be thorough and complete, we would
recommend that all parties having
ashes anil refuse in their yards that is
usually hauled avvav by the city, that
the s;ime be deposited in the alleys, or
streets where there is no alley, just
before the city teams reach them, and
not after they hate passed, as is some
times don, because we don't want to
go over the work twice or three times
w hen once w ill do.
We would further recommend, as
the city has not the funds to keep the
streets and alleys cle;m and in as good
rep.-rir as we would like to do. that
citizens generally would ail ami co
operate with us, wherever it is possi
ble without damage and danger to
adjoining property, by burning all
light inflammable material, which is
unsanitary for f.Hing and of no benefit
to the low- street- and alleys which
costs the city so much to handle with
no compensating benefits.
