SWEAT SHOP APPELLATION
The Further Course of Action Con
gressman McKinney Learns
Pursuant to the action of thj Tri-City
Press club of Tuesday evening relative
to the unfortunate conditions existing
at Rock Island arsenal, the club's
standing cooperative public good com
mittee got busy the first thing yester
day morning, preparing a memorial to
the American Federation of Labor, de
precating the resolution of the federa
tion in condemning the arsenal as a
"sweat shop," as follows:
Rock Island. 111., Nov. 22. 1905.
Hon. Samuel Gompers. President
American Federation of Labor, and
Delegates to Convention of American
Federation of Labor, Pittsburg, Pa.:
Tri-City Press club, including in
membership the newspapers and other
publications in cities of Davenport,
Iowa, and Rock Island and Moline, 111.,
and embracing C5 working newspaper
men in community contiguous to
Rock Island arsenal, deprecates reso
lution adopted by your distinguished
body, condemning Rock Island arsenal
as "sweat shop," feeling that you could
not have been fully informed as to the
actual conditions existing at the ar
senal. Believing that apart from
the fact that your body would not wil
lingly do an injustice to any institution
or community, that in effect the afore
said resolution, is as we verily believe,
really damaging to labor conditions in
this locality, we therefore ask of your
honorable body that the resolution al
ready adopted, be rescinded until a
careful investigation be made.
In the meantime, we pledge the aid
and cooperation of this organization
and its members, if it shall be desiref!.
in an honest and fair investigation of
the conditions as they really exist at
Rock Island arsenal.

Hon. Samuel Gompers, President

congressional investigation will do
more to right wrongs at Rock Island f

E. C. BERRY,
The Press club committee will meet
in a few days to discharge the further
part of its duties in the form of a me
morial to congress as to the contract
and piece work systems.
Mr- Work to He Doar.
The press club is determined
through its tri-city committee, to bring
every phase of the Rock Island arsenal
situation before the proper authorities.
Thn attention of the nresident will be
sought and congress will be memorial- j
ized through the Illinois and Iowa sen-!
ators and representatives, to conduct
&ueh investigation and prescribe such
remedies as will correct the conditions
at present existing at the arsenal.
What ('MtrrMnai MrKlaarr I.rrd.
Yesterday while here. Congressman
McKinney learned from Col. Blunt, the
causes of the steady reduction of the
forces in the employ of the arsenal.,
because of the gradual increase in the
volume of arstnal manufactures going
into the hands of private contractors.
That while a year ago there were 2.600
men employed at the arsenal, the total
force now numbers 1.6X, and it is still
From Business Agent Herges of the
Tri City Labor congress. Congressman !
McKinney received the information j
that there are conditions existing pecu-;
liar to this arsenal that should be rem-.
edied either by the president, the sec
retary of war, or by congress, that
these conditions apply both to the pol-:
icy of the ordnance department in per
mitting outside contractors to bid for
and secure the products that legitl-
cat&ly btlooi to the arsenal, and iaj
the system of piece work as in vogue
at the arsenal-
Tfce Sweat Shop Tctbb.
In the same connection Mr.
Herges took occasion to say
that the Tri-City Labor congress had
deferred action in approving the reso
lution of the American Federation of
Labor condemning the arsenal as a
sweat shop, as it was the desire to
ascertain the full interpretation of the
federation's resolution. Mr. Herges ex
plained to the congressman that all
labor regarded the arsenal as an ideal
place to work, as far as architecture,
and the shop comforts were concerned,
but that the system employed there
was just such as lead up to sweat shop
oppressions, and this could only be
remedied through an act of congress,
the result of a congressional investiga
tion. Aaka Geaeral Cooperation.
The Tri-City Press club has asked
the cooperation of the various organi
zations of the three cities, whose aim
is the advancement of the community.
and is ready to act with such other
properly designated committees as
may be named for that purpose.
MAYOR OUT OF CITY
COUNCIL GETS BUSY
Mattcon Aldermen Find Way to Fill
Appointive Offices Left
The city of Mattoon, 111., is situated
similarly to Rock Island in that there
is friction between the mayor and
council. Like Mayor McCaskrin, May
or William Beyers, of Mattoon, has
been dilatory in making his appoint
ments. Yesterday the council took ad
vantage of the absence of the mayor
from the city to elect a mayor pro tern
in the person of Aid. White. The act
ing chief executive immediately filled
all the appointive offices and the coun
cil promptly approved of his action.
The Rock Island council may take the
hunch and follow the same plan with
reference to chief of police if Mayor
McCaskrin don't watch out.

Latest Entries in the Race Ar
senal Men Meet McKinney.
By the time Congressman McKinney
was through receiving at the Harper
house last evening he undoubtedly had
reached the conclusion that Rock Is
land is really the big end of the dis
trict, so far as federal interests are con
cerned. Besides the eight candidates
for the postoffice, with many of their
friends, which may develop in any
city, there were dozens of arsenal men
who called upon the congressman. His
time was occupied all of the afternoon
and late in the night with those seek
ing to be beneficiaries from his admin
istration. In the afternoon he visited
the arsenal to become acquainted with
the situation, and later addressed the
W. R. C. in session at the court house.
Of course the issues between the
candidates for the position of postmas
ter were the ones pushed hardest at
this time. All interests are represented
in this class, and the votes were no
sooner counted than Congressman Mc
Kinney was face to face with the prob
lem of the distribution of patronage.
He is also face to face with the situa
tion of having seen the experience of
his predecessors, not one of whom for
years back has carried the county af
ter the making of federal appoint
ments. If it was carried at the pri
maries it was lost at the election.
Two more candidates for the office
of postmaster are in the field, the ones
that were made public last night being
Dr. G. G. Craig, Sr.. and Dr. J. W. S'ew
art. These, in addition to the ones al
ready published in these columns, make
eight having been announced in order
as follows: T. H. Thomas, R. W. Olm

It is not a matter of measuring up
petitions. It is not a matter of chos
ing a friend and leaving the enemies.
It is not a matter of measure of fed
eral influence. It is not a question of
the most state influence. But all of the
things are put to the congressman and
his choice must thus be made, and
what standard of measure is being
used is not known, even if he has de
T.. II. Thomas, the present incum
bent, will offer his record and endorse
ments from the business and commer
cial interests as backing his claim to
a third term in the office. He will also
have an endorsement from some of the
local influences who have been identi
fied with the federal interests. R. W.
Olmsted probably has the longest peti
tion, promiscuously signed by people of
the city. George E. Bailey, George L.
Mitchell and E. II. Bowman represent
the veterans of the civil war as well as
friends generally. Oapt. McDonald has
the backing of his fellow beneficiaries
of the state administration. Dr. Craig
i will probably have the greater part of
the federal influence, and Dr. Stewart
enters as one of the old and respected
residents of the city.

Congressman McKinney was accom
panied by Hon. M. (5. Reynolds. C. E.
Emerich and Judge Connell, some of
his Aledo lieutenants, who assisted in
holding the crowd off to some extent
by acting as a kind of reception com
mittee. Incidentally they talked things
over with the politicians in the hotel
lobby and gathere such information af
would be valuable to the congressman
after getting out of the closet.
