Representative of Shermrd Union
Tells Labor Congress of
TRY TO AVOID A STRIKE
Congress Votes to Exchange Delegates
With Rock Island Ministerial Association.
At the regular meeting of the Tri
City Labor congress last evening, the
delegates heard an Interesting discus
sion of the coal strike situation by Mr.
Hurns, the delegate from United Mine
Workers' union. No. 1104, of Sherrard.
Mr. Durns, in the course of his- re-
marks, said that the miners of this
locality are hoping that a general strike
might be averted, but should this be
impossible, he assured the congress
that the miners are prepared and will
ing to enter on a hard struggle. The
discussion was heard with interest by
the delegates, and gave them many
new phases of the coal situation.
The congress elected Percy Dean fin
ancial secretary, to succeed C. V. Nel
son, resigned. Delegates were obli
gated from United Mine Workers. Nt.
1104, of Sherrard. Theatrical Stage eu
ploycs. No. 83, and Tri-City Electrical
Workers, No. 109.
The congress decided to accept the
invitation of the Rock Island Minis
terial association, for the exchange of
fraternal delegates. The invitation of
the local ministers is in the line of a
movement on the part of clergymen in
all parts of the country, the movement
originating a year ago with action by
the general board of the Presbyterian
church, which organized a labor
board. The intention is to give the
church workers an opportunity to be
come more familiar and in closer touch
with the methods of organized labor,

The question of continuing the office
of business agent, which was created a

Herges, was continued until the next
meeting of the congress. The office of
business agent has during the year
proved a successful venture, and there
J no indication that it will be discon
tinued. Owing to the fact that the of
fice was created for only a year, form

Citizen Points Out Need of Coed
Roads Agitation in Rock -v
OBLIGATIONS ARE NOT MET
City's Highway Allowed to Fall Into
Such Bad 'Repair' Trade is
Driven Away. "'
"It is well to agitate good roads in
the country," said a citizen comment
ing on the good roads agitation, "but
some of our farmer friends are asking
pertinent questions about the highway
for which the city of Rock Island is
responsible. Unfortunately the city is
the possessor ol Ninth street to th'
Rock river bridge and of the bridges
"The bridges are in good condition,
but the street has received littlo or no
attention-and is rapidly becoming a
succession of ruts and mMd-holes.
There is bottom there, but sometimes
it is hard to reach. The revenue from
the toll gate approximates $1,000 per
annum, all of which goes into the con
tingent fund. Then when appropria
tions are matle for street improvement
there is objection, perhaps naturally,
to spending money on roads that are
outside the corporation limits, although
the property of the city. This is a
mistake, and enough money should be
spent on Ninth street each year to
keep it in perfect condition to the
limit of the city's jurisdiction.
Would Mraa Mrr Trade.
"The results from this expenditure
are obvious. With better roads, more
people will come to town, more pro
duce will be hauled in, local trade will
be improved, the pleasure of driving
will be increased, and the city will be
discharging the duty it owes the coun
