City Labor congress last evening, fol
lowing the regular open session. Chair
man Streeter.of the committee appoint
ed to investigate alleged violation of
the closing hour rule in Rock Island
business houses, made a lengthy re
port. This matter has been in the hands
of the committee for some time, with
instructions to investigate the charges
that certain stores in Rock Island
have been open after the regular hours,
but until last evening the committee
had nothing of importance to report
to the congress. The action of the
executive session is not made public.

In the regular session the business
agent. F. . Herges, made a report of
his visit at the meeting of the United
Mine Workers' union at Sherrard last
week. He said it was one of the best
union meetings he had ever attended
and classified the miners as "princes."
He will attend a meeting of the Cable
union in the near future, and expects
to secure the affiliation of the union
with the congress. He reported that
the miners are enjoying favorable con
ditions. with an eight-hour clay, and
plenty of work. Mr. Herges reported

JUDGE SEPTIMUS J. HANNA
At the Illinois Theater Next Tuesday
Evening, Oct. 10.
It is customary for every Christian
Science church to give a public lecture
each year. The miroose of these lec-
tuers is to give the public an oppor
tunity to hear the truth and remove
any misunderstanding in regard to
Christian Science. Through, the cour
tesy of the First Church of Christ, Sci
entist. of Rock Island, a cordial invita
tion is extended to all to hear Judge
Septimus J. Hanna, C. S. D., who will
lecture at the Illinois theater, next
I Tuesday evening, Oct. 10 at 8 o'clock.
Judge Hanna is a member of the
Christian Science board of Lecture
ship of The First church of Christ, Sci
entist. of Boston. Mass.. he is one of
the most able exponents of Christian
Science, is a fluent, and interesting
sptaker. There will be no charge for

The resignation was accepted and
the new appointment made by the su
preme court yeste relay afternoon. The
action on the part of Judge Gest had
been anticipated, but the appointment
of his fellow jurist in tho same district
came as something of a surprise to
the Rock Island bar.
1'rrfern Trlsil Work.
"The work on tlie circuit bench is
more satisfactory to me," said Judge
(Jest in discussing his reasons for giv
ing up the appellate seat. "I have al
ways been a man' of the world, mixing
with people of all classes, and for that
reason the work in the circuit court
room, where there are jurymen, wit
nesses and numerous lawyers is more
enjoyable than the work that confines
me in my study.
"Besides that the work of the Third
appellate district is very heavy an J
growing. At the last term each judge
was assigned 40 cases. I have heard
it said that the work of the Third dis
trict was equal to that of both the
Second and Fourth."
This recognition that comes to Judge
Ramsay at this time is deserved by
him on account of his faithful and effi
cient service as a judge of the circuit
court in this district. He was first
dected with Judge (Jest in June, 1S97,
and has since been presiding over the
courts of the district. Previous to that
time he served for several years as
master in chancery of Whiteside
Judge Ramsay is now presiding in
the Rock Island court over the trial of
the storm drain case, and upon its con
clusion the work will be taken up by
ludge Gest. Judge Ramsay expects to
continue to give some of his tune to
the circuit work.
The city council meets in adjourned
session tonight to formally consider,
and possibly to act on the proposi
tions looking to the purchase of a new
pump for the Rock Island waterworks.
That the question is one of the great
est importance to the city need hardly
be said, in which, as has been frequent
ly stated, the tax payers should con
slder themselves vitally concerned. And
while it is fair to presume that an emer
gency exists why there should not be
unnecessary delay in making provision
for increased pumping facilities at the
waterworks plant, this condition
need not call for too hasty action at
this particular juncture. In a word
the council should move advisedly, and
be quite certain that it has secured the
best pump for the city within the re
quirements of the specifications. The
aldermen ought to have acquired some
knowledge as to the relative merits of
the pumps represented, at least suffi
cient knowledge to move intelligently,
and for the best interests of the city.
They are reasonably expected to be in
a position to know what they are do
ing better than an outsider who has
not given the subject study. The tax
payers will, as a matter of course, an
ticipate the best pump at the lowest
expenditure, and where so much money
is to be spent the aldermen should for
their own part be in a position to ex
plain why what they may do is best
for the city considering the range of
possibilities and opportunities before
them, both as to the questions of merit
and outlay involved in the transaction.
Realizing this fact, some of the ald
ermen are opposed to action, tonight at
