John Collins and Samuel Block, Can
didates for Governor and Attor
ney General, Speak at Picnic.
FORMER TELLS OF ARREST
At Springfield for Disturbance of the
peace Appeal Made to the Labor
ing Classes to Arouse.
John Collins, of Chicago, and Sam
'iel Block, of Peoria, candidates, re-sjxt'tivc-ly.
for governor and attorney
general of Illinois on the socialist
ticket, delivered addresses yesterday
afternoon at the first of a series of
picnics given under the auspices of
the party in Hock Island at Huber's
Mr. Collins noted that it was the
first picnic held in Hock Island by the
socialists, and lie was glad to see so
many enjoy themselves. Most of them
were Germans, and ho was probably
the only Irishman in the crowd. In
stead of saner kraut growing out of
his nose, he had potatoes budding from
that appendage. He said that the
working class, to accomplish anything,
had to stav closer together than it had
been doing, and he prophesied that
tho time was near at hand when the
working class would arouse and make
a light for its liberation from the chok
ing chains of the capitalists. Speak
ing of his arrest in Springfield last
week, Mr. Collins said that people of
the old parties did it in order to pro-
vent his speaking on socialism, and to
try to keep the working class in ig
norance, and not let them see that
they are standing in their own light.
He had announced the sale of litera
ture on socialism at Springfield when
a policeman came up to him and ask
ed him if he had a license to sell hooks.
when the speaker said that he did not;
that if it was not lawful to sell the
bonks he would not.
HrfiiN-H to ((nit Tn I kin sr.
He proceeded to talk, when the po
liceman shouted at him to stop. Mr.
Collins would not do so and said that
he would have to be arrested before
he quit speaking. He was arrested and
taken to the police station. The police
man told the chief that Collins was
trying to sell hooks without a license.
Tin? speaker said that he was given his
liberty, and as he walked out of the
station he was telling the large crowd
that had followed him to the station
that he was not going to speak that
night, but that he was the night fol
lowing. He said that a fly cop then
picked him up for causing a disturb
ance of the peace, and this time he
was put into jail with negroes, drunk
en men and all kinds of other bad
characters. He retained the services
of a lawyer, and with the assistance
of his attorney and his friends he was
released from jail. Ho cited this story
as being generally applicable to the
methods used by the democratic and
republican parties in suppressing so
cialism, the exponent of what lie call
ed righteousness, in making an ap
peal to young men. Mr. Collins told
them that they would have to make a
harder fight than they are at present to
get from the serfdom they are now put
in by the capitalists. The speaker
said that when men suffered the pangs
of !i linger and the lack of the necessi
ties of life, as a natural result women
and children did likewise, only more
so. for men could take a nickel,
buy : glass of beer and get a lunch
with it, while with women and chil
dren the case was different. The
capitalists were developing a system
that, if allowed to continue, would soon
throw the working class out of employ
ment and wreak horrible consequences
upon the country. Modern machinery
was one factor in throwing men out of
".lployment and that was getting
worse all along.
l.nliorrrN lril uring; All.
In touching on labor unions, the
speaker said that the working men
who belonged to unions were waking
up to t lie fact that a serious situation is
facing them. They would in time to
come broach subjects that would re
sult in a final and successful blow
against the serfdom endured by the
laboring class. He said that the work
ing men produced everything to eat
and wear, and that the capitalists were
the ones who derived all the benefit.
The working men built the line man
sions for the capitalists to live in, while
the laborers go to their hovels to live.
When the working men were allowed
an increase in wages through a strike
the owners of the concern where the
strike took place raised the price of
commodities, about four times as much
as was the increase allowed the em
ployes. As a result conditions were
made worse. He did not mean to say
that unions were to blame for the con
ditions, but the working men should
learn how to free themselves.
Socialism taught workingmen how
to aecomplishe this. Socialists
were ill-treated by the work
ingmen. but that was because people
generally were not educated up to the
ideas of the laboring problem like the
socialists were. Capitalists did not
care whether Parker or Roosevelt was
elected. But they did not want to see
Debs, the socialist candidate, elected
IW.M-k'M Tnlk In Ilrlrf.
Mr. Block cited various labor trou
bles, such as those existing between
the mine operators and miners of Col
orado and the packers' strike, and at
tempted to show that socialists have
interests diametrically opposed to
those of capitalists by offering the la
bor troubles as examples. In conclu
sion, the speaker asked people, in hon
esty to themselves, to support the so
cialists at the ballot box. There were
300 at the picnic.
COMMITTEES ON BUSINESS
Points of Information That Congres
sional Visitors are Seeking.
The national committee on rivers
and harbors is not coming to Rock
Island on a pleasure jaunt. It is a
matter of business that brings the com
mittee here. Congress has been asked
to improve the river from St. Paul to
Cairo, making a waterway with a uni
form depth of six feet. The cost of
this improvement has been estimated
at $15.oiM,0uu. It may be more. The
committee wants to find out "where it
is at" before reporting upon this vast
undertaking. The committee wants
information. The following letter
from I j. B. Bos well, secretary of the
I'pper Mississippi River Improvement
association, explains itself:
"The rivers and harbors committee
will require da'a relative to the com
merce and traffic affected by the up
per Mississippi river.
' In order to obtain some uniformity
in this respect, it is advisable to have
prepared for your city a typewritten
communication addressed, and to be
delivered by you, to Theo. K. Burton,
chairman of the rivers and harbors
committee, of the house of representa
tives, when the committee arrives at
your place, giving information approxi
mately as nearly as possible, as fol
"1. Xame of town or city.
"2. Population. 11)04.
"o. Number of factories and kind
of articles produced.
"4. Number of mercantile houses,
"3. Number of employes in all

tured products annually.
"7. Value', in dollars, of raw mater
ials consumed annually.

mately, in cars eir Ions.

your place1 on the first five classes un
der the western classification, to strict
ly int-rier points, for distances of 2."i,
50. 75, 100. 150 and 200 miles.
"10. Water rates of freight from
your place on first five classes, under
the western classification, to river
points, for distance's of 25, 50, 75, 100,
loti and 200 miles.
"Please send me carbon copy of
your communication as above suggest
ed. "Your statement shoujd he carefully
and promptly prepared so as to file
with the rivers and harbors commit
tee on its trip down the river.
"You will be advised of the date of
arrival when the committee is on its
tour, as it is impossible to give definite
information in advance as to the actu
al day er hour of arrival.
"The importance of furnishing the
committee with the information sug
gested herein, must be apparent to all.
The committee is in search of infor
mation relative to the necessity, and
the effect upon traffic, of permanently
improving the upper river. This can
best be demonstrated by showing the
saving in the freight rates as between
all-rail and water traffic."
A meeting of the tri-city general
committee on arrangements for the
visit of the congressional committee
will be held tomorrow evening at S
o'clock at the rooms of the Davenport
Business Men's association.
BAILEY HAD A COMPANION
Man Killed on Rail Near Geneseo May
Have Been Murdered.
It has developed that George Bailey,
the young canal workman who was so
badly mutilated in the accident that
cost his life Thursday morning, ncai
Geneseo, had a partner. Frank Pierce,
a barber, recognized the remains a?
those of a man who had been in hir
shop the previous night for a har
cut. He had a partner with whom
he seemed to be very thick. Neither
man had much to say when in the
shop, except to e ach other. Mr. Pierce
is confident that Bailey had not beer
drinking at the time he was in the
shop. The partner had not been
heard from since the accident, and the
mystery is that he should desert hir
friend at such a time. The mutilated
condition of the body might be a cause?
for suspicion that foul play had beei
committed and the body placed across
the track to hide the crime.

WILL QUIT RAFTING WORKS
Vest Newton, Center of Logging Busi
ness, to be Abandoned.
The rafting works at West Newton
are now be-ing dismantled ami only
a comparatively few logs will be rafted
next season, when the final clean-up
will be made. Something concerning
these works may be of interest.
The legging industry on the Chippe
wa river first attained any prominence
in the year 1SCS, when the Be'ef Slough
Manufacturing. Log Driving & Trans
portation company controlled the raft
ing on the river, and then in 1S71 the
Mississippi River Logging company
was formed by lumbermen envning
pine lands along the Chippewa and
rafted out' logs as they were cut frim
year to re'ar.
Fp to 10 years ago Boef Slough,
near Alma, in Wisconsin, was the
scene of the logging operations, and
then the lumhermen. actuated by what
they believed to be an unj'isf taxation
law in Wisconsin removed the rafting
works to the Minnesota side of the
river, near Minneiskt. at West New
ton, and that has been the headquar
ters of the logging industry since.'
The rafting of the Chippewa river
logs reached its height in the early
nineties, the record output for one
season being 037,000. 'too feet. For 15
years the average output of logs from
the works was from 4ti0.fi00.000 to 5on.
emo.oeo feet a year. Latterly, as the
available pine along the Chippewa
has become scarce the output has been
considerably reduced. Last year only
Ii0.0(i000 feet of logs were rafted,
and this year the output was further
reduced to RO.OuO.OOO feet. Fid ward
Douglas, of Winona, Minn., has been
the superintendent of the rafting
works since 1K71).
