Creating Confusion in Local Labor
Affairs Monthly Meeting
Unions centralized in the Tri-City
labor congress have been falling away
at a rate that is alarming the officers
)f the latter organization.
Until a few years apo the congress
embraced within its fold nearly every
local union In the trl-cities. It was a
power in local labor affairs. It still is
powerful, having In its membership
some of the wisest counselors in labor
matters in this locality, but there has
been springing up in Davenport and
n the other two cities organizations of
the same character as the congress.
These have been drawing the unions
heretofore affiliated with the tri-city
txMly. The result has been a confusion
that has brought the unions to the
point where really they do not know
where they are at.
Committee to Labor With t'nlona.
The congress held its monthly meet
ing at the Rock Island Industrial home
last evening. The situation above re
ferred to was considered, and a com
mittee appointed to confer with the
unions that have been withdrawn in
an effort to Induce them to return.
The committee is composed of the
president. H. C. Hergis. William Camp
bell and E. C. Berry. Paul Henneberg,
William Campbell and H. C Hergis
were appointed a legislative commit
tee. The Rock Island Fuel company is to
be visited by a committee and asked
to give its consent to Its teamsters
joining the teamsters union. Paul
Henneberg reported that he had ob-,
tained the signatures of a number of j
dealers agreeing not to handle the
products of the Washburn-Crosby Flour.
& Cereal company, of Minneapolis, un-1
til the company had made Its peace
with union labor.
t'bnrjie In Dlitpm t rn.
K. C Berry, editor of the Tri-City
Unionist, was absent at the former
meeting at which he was represented
as having accepted advertising from
an unfair firm. He refuted the charge.
He stated that the blackboard In the
congress meeting room on which are
supposed to be posted the names of
firms that are not in good standing
with union labor had always served as
his guide. If the name of a business
house that may be antagonistic to the
interests of union labor was not writ
ten there, he had no way of knowing
but ttiat it was on terms of equality
with others that were friendly. The
congress thereupon ordered expunged
from the records all reference to the
matter. Mr. Berry has entered into
contract with the congress to edit and
publish the official organ the ensuing
Federation Letter Received.
The congress received the letter
from the American Federation of Labor
giving notification that the blanks and
literature explaining the referendum
system of balloting were ready for de
livery. This letter was held up t a
former meet in g, when there was a
charge of political manipulation on the
part of the federation.

"The stage is a tremendous force as
an educator. It wields a fearful Influ

through the eyes and ears. We have
in well chosen language not only the
thought of the author, as we do from
the naked platform, but we also re
ceive through the eyes the outward
form and show the actions which ac
company the thought, presenting us
with real and not abstract life. Thus
it becomes a double means of educa
tion. "To many church and theatre seem
diametrically opposed; but the divorce
is only temporary. The stage was born
in the 'dim, religious light of the
church,' and some day when religion
grows wiser and more appreciative she

Philadelphia Club for Sale.
Philadelphia. Fa., Oct. 7, Philadel
phia millionaires who tried baseball
as an investment and incidentally
nought to make the national game pop
ular with the swell set have admitted
the experiment is a failure. As a con
sequence the fate of the Philadelphia
National league baseball club hangs
in the balance.
After two years' experience, which
has cost the club between $60,000 and
$70,000, it is said on good authority
that at the next meeting of the club
the local franchise in the National
league will be disposed of to the high
est bidder. A meeting of the stock
holders was held yesterday, but owing
to the limited number who attended,
no definite action was taken. The
president's report showed a heavy
financial loss this season. After it
was accepted an informal discussion
took place and indicated a general
feeling in favor of disposing of the
President Potter said: "We shall
finish the season and all debts will be
paid, but after that it will be for the
stockholders to determine whether
they wish to continue or not. I shall
continue in charge of tlie club until
some action is taken."
President Pulliam of the National
league was present at the meeting.
