Avoid Contention With a Peoria
At the regular meeting of the Tri-
City Labor congress last evening Pres
ident Hergis discussed the establish
ment of a defense or strike fund. He
thought it would be a boon to union
ism to install a fund for the cause of
unions when out on a strike. The
lackers' strike in Chicago furnished
He was afraid that the strikers
would he compelled to acquiesce to the
packers and return to work under the
saute conditions under which they
were working before they struck. If
a defense fund was on hand and ready
for ihe assistance of the strikers thev
A fund could he created by
assessing 51 a year for each member
f the American Federation of Labor
and inside of three years the fund
would be large enough to successfully
tight the btaudard Oil company. The
plan was indorsed by the congress.
Only One Will Sljcn.
The committee appointed at the last
meeting to try to induce wholesale
lealers of the tri-cities to cease hand
ling Clark Bros. & Co.'s whisky, made
in Peoria, reported that all those called
on, with the execution of one. refused
to sign a card submitted to them ask-
ig that they quit selling that brand
f goods. Those who declined stated
that they were afraid to do so because:
the distillery might some day get the
dge over them and make them regret
the stand in this instance. The one
who did sign the card asked that his
name be withheld from the public.

An appeal from the Trades and La
bor council, of Freeport. 111., asking
for financial aid in supporting the fam
ily of John Weurth. a union baker of
that city, who was killed last May in
a street altercation between non-union
md union bakers, was read. The con-
res. s having voted at the last meeting
to quit extending financial aid in re-
spouse to appeals outside of the tri-
ities. as a congress, reported the ni-
peal to delegates from the various un
ions, who will report to their respec
tive unions. The union bakers of Free-
port went out on a strike the first of
last May and much trouble grew out
of if. many combats having Liken
place, among them being the one in
which Weurth was killed. He left a
wife and four children.
L. Stinton, of Minneapolis, repre
senting the union bakers of this dis
trict, appeared before the congress and
isked the moral support of the mem
bers in the cause of unionism among
the bakers. He stated that but a very
few realize the deplorable conditions
under which bakers in cities are com
pelled to work.

A discussion of the feasibility of or
ganizing a union label league was
broached. It was contended that it
would be necessary for the housewife
to be made cognizant of tne signili-
uice of buying union goods for the
culinary department as well as house
hold goods in order to establish firmly
i union league. Some contended that
women did not take enougn interest
n such matters, anil that they did not
realize the importance of buying noth
ing but union goods. It was also cited
that the best plan to bring about the
ultimate success of such an undertak
ing would be to use the postal card
system, fonncrlv employed by union
ists in lighting handlers of non-union
oils. The idea suggested is to have
eards primed in the form of pledges
to be signed by members of the league.
ornising not to purchase anything
but union goods. The cards would Ik
printed and distributed monthly, bear
ing a list of non-union shops. Each
member would pay the Mini of . cents
per month as a fee for supporting the
uise. It was sumested 'hat it would
be rontrarv to law to adopt such a
method. No action was taken.
Pay Twice a Month at Arsenal.
Effective yesterday an order issued
by the secretary of war providing for

Rock Island arsenal. The payments
are to be made as nearly after th

Will Have Ward Clubs.
At their meetings last evening the
republicans derided to have marching
clubs in the Fifth and Sixth wards. In
the Third the party lights thought that
rhe flambeau club ought to manasre to
burn all the oil that the local campaign
fund would stand for. In the First
ward no action was taken. In the
Fourth a committee was p.piointed to
feel the sentiment of the republican
voters of the ward who were not pres
