to bring in a party of independence;
party enthusiasts from that city, and
the delegation includes Mr. and Mrs.
Hearst, James J. Gray, Dr. Howard S.
Taylor, Charles A. Walsh, Charles H.
Mitchell, and others.
Mr. Hisgen left for Davenport last
evening, and was stated to have ar
rived at 10 o'clock. George V. Mc
Caskrin, however, could not locate the
candidate, and during the morning was
chasing about the three cities in an
automobile searching for Mr. Hisgen.
Mr. Hisgen seems determined to se
clude himself until the afternoon.

The parade this morning proved one
of the largest, labor demonstrations in
trie tri-cities in years. It was a column
over two miles in length. All of the
labor unions of the tri-cities were rep
resented in line, and there were many
pretty floats. The float of the boiler
makers attracted much attention. It
showed a large boiler, and a number
of workmen demonstrated the opera
tions in the making of such a fixture.
Mr. Hisgen did not participate in the
parade. The column, headed by a pla
toon of Davenport police, moved at 10
o'clock, and was passing through the
streets for over an hour.
Petersen's band followed the pla
toon of police and following the mu
sicians in 3G carriages came in order
the Moline City Council, the Rock Is
land council and the Davenport alder
men. Other participants in the parade in
their order were as follows:

The pow-wow is not strictly con

times the butcher and the baker and
the rest of them get their heads to
gether and discuss the merits of their
patrons in this way. Delinquents on
their books are known and their credit
is questioned. Isn't it better to keep
your name out of these pow-wows

settle with them NOW? By all means.
Now that we have furnished the ad

We'll be glad to let you have the cash

Davenport was the large touring car
advertising the Jtock Island Exposition.
Attractive red, white and blue banners
on the sides and above the car bore
the familiar words "Rock Island's
Great Exposition, Sept. 2S to Oct. 3."
ihree employes of the publicity de
partment were kept busy handing out
the several varieties of novelties pro
vidd by the committee on advertising
and so great was the demand for
these that at times the progress of the
car was completely stopped by the
people crowding against the wheels.
Five thousand pieces of advertising
matter disappeared within a few min
utes and a hurried run to Rock Island
for a second supply became necessary.
This afternoon the Islanders at Is
land City ball park wore on their caps
large Expo, buttons.
At Suburban Inland.
The program at Suburban island this
afternoon included addresses by the
mayors of the three cities, an address
by Mr. Hisgen, and an address by Wil
liam Randolph Hearst. The remarks
by Mayors George W. Scott of Daven
port, Andrew Olson of Moline, and H.I
C. Schaffer of Rock Island were in" the
form of a welcome to the visitors and
congratulations to the. trades unions
that had made the day one of such sig
nificance. Mr. IlearM'x Speech.
Mr. Hearst spoke as follows:
"I intend to talk politics, because we
ire thinking of politics at the present
lime, but I do not intend to make a
political speech or partisan speech.
When I first urged labor unions' to go
into politics, Samuel Gompers dis
agreed with me and declared labor
unions ought to keep out of politics;
but I don't agree with him on the way
labor unions ought to go into politics.
CJompers thinks the right way is for all
labor unions to lay their votes in his
basket like a lot of good, dutiful politi
cal hens, and for him to then take his
basket to market, peddle the contents
to the republican party or to the demo
cratic party. Objections to this plan
are many. They are convincing and
conclusive. First, you cannot afford to
repose so much power with any man or
set of men.
"There is distinct danger that the
contents of the basket would be ped
dled more for the benefit of the owner
of the basket than for the advantage
of the honest, truthful layer of the
votes. There would be competition for
the contents of the basket of a kind
that would debauch and destroy your
organization without benefiting its
"Second, you would never be har
monious in your ideas of how the votes
should be delivered. You would be di
vided by difference of opinion; you
would be disrupted by dissensions.
"Third, you would get no result from
such a system, for the men elected
would be primarily democrats or repub
licans. They would be your friends be
fore election, but would forget all
about you after election. '
Fourth, you have tried old parties
time and time again, and found them
wanting every time, and it would be
absurd for you to waste your time and
your opportunities persisting in a pol
icy that has continually proved a fail
ure. If anyone tells you the demo
cratic party is a new party with a new
attitude towards workingmen, I stand
ready to prove tha: it's the same old
democratic party w;th the same old
attitude toward workingmen."
In concluding his address, Hearst
engaged in bitter attacks upon Mr.
Bryan and Governor Haskell, but con
siderately spared Mr. Taft and the re
publican national machine.

the Rock Island Club from 4 to

Out of respect for Labor day, no
school was held at Augnstana college
today. The students assembled as
usual for chapel exercises, at the close
of which Dr. Andreen announced that
the day would be observed as a holi
day. In making the announcement
President Andreen made a few brief
remarks appropriate to the day.
"Today is the day we observe out
of respect for labor for the men who
work with their hands," said he. "It
is only right and just that those who
toil and labor should receive this rec
ognition. Both those who labor with
their brains and those who labor with
their hands must recognize each oth
er's rights. This spirit of brother
hood is the only solution which ve
can hope for in settling the complex
labor questions of the day. The
'brotherhood of man' is our, hope, and
the Holy Script is the guide to show
us how to reach this goal."
