IV! AY SETTLE THE
Boss Barbers and Union Repre
sentatives to Have a
FORMER MAKE A STATEMENT
Importing of Men From Chicago Post
poned in Hope Agreement
Will Be Reached.
The members of the executive board
cl the barbers' union, and the boss bar
bers who have taken action to run
open shop? in the future, are to hold
a meeting this evening, and it is possi
ble that at that time the difficulties
will be settled in a satisfactory man
ner. The proprietors this morning
made a direct proposition to the men
who are on a strike, to the effect that
the men return to work at the oil
time, and that the trouble which ex
ists be settled by some method of arbi
tration. While the individual mon fa
vor this method, they claim that until
the executive board takes action on the
proposition they are compelled to re
The boss barbers contend that the
men are not permitted to return to
work, for the reason that the officers
are men who own shops, and as long
as the larger shops are handicapped
by the strike the smaller shops are
reaping a big business. The proprie
tors have heard nothing further from
Chicago, in regard to the non-union
men who were to arrive today. It is
understood that they have decided to
wait and see if matters can not be ad
justed satisfactorily before they im
Ito.MMCN In Statement.
The following statement was issued
by the proprietors of the shops with
whom the union is at outs, after the
statement was published last evening
in The Argus, from the members of
the executive board:
Rock Island. Nov. We. the under
signed proprietors of the leading bar
ber shops of the city, wish to make a
statement regarding the Vemere &
Motx case appearing in tonight's
issue of the Argus and a few other
matters that have not been made clear
to the public whom we wish to know
the facts. At a meeting of the boss
barbers held on the evening of the
31st, it was decided that we would
stand by one another in protecting our
patrons, and at the same time not allow
our journeymen to dictate how our bus
iness should be carried on. We were
never informed by a committee of the
change of opening our shops, or not
even consulted in the matter. Mr.
Vemere above all was loud in his sen
timent in standing together, and as a
former financial secretary of local 113.
he claimed the union had not the right
to take our cards and was the one to
suggest a plan to resi&t the demand if
one was made. It seems as though he
was trying to injure our business, at
the same time he was getting the bene
fit, as he is still holding his union card
and in fact has not even had an in
terview with any of us since the pres
We further wish to deny the state
ment regarding I. G. Miller, secretary
of local No. 113 as to his being accused
as instigator of the present strike. We
find he was acting only under instruc
tions from the union and as secretary
was forced to sign his name to the
articles first appearing in the Argus
and Union regarding the change. He
and other journeymen have been heard
o say they did not care to strike, but
were in the minority and were com
pelled to. We wish to state that we
have no wish to antagonize union
labor; we have been forced to adopt
this course or else not have any say
in the conduct of our business.
