Schoede, are entitled to enjoy a few
days well earned repose.
R. R. Reynolds should be the next
state's attorney of Rock Island county
He Is not only well qualified for the
office, but is willing that the people
shall fix his remuneration. He seeks
the office on his record ' as a profes-
sional man. not as a politician. He
seeks to serve, not. to dictate.
Another labor speech at the rink
M. J. McEniry has proven a wide
awake citizen, always keen to the
highest interests and common welfare
of the community. Such kind of men
make good congressmen.
Elect Dr. M. J. 0Heni coroner and
get the advantage of a physician in
the office. None will deny. that the
people will profit by such an election
One more day passed and not one
conciliatory word on .the part of Coun
ty Chairman DeSilva toward Judge ,C.
J. Searle and Searle the original Taft
man in Rock Island county. Guess
the threat made against Searle by the
Cannon contingent in Rock Island
county, when he .launched the Taft
club, "that he would get his all right"
is coming to pass.

Order Extending Work Day , "
ABBROGATED 8-HOUR LAW
Employes on Government River Inv
prcvement Now Put in 10 Hours,
With No Extra Pay.'
Laboring men, and particularly mem'
bers of the union organizations, are re1
calling a local instance that indicates
the attitude of William H. Taft toward
labor. At the time Judge Taft, as sec
retary of war, visited Rock Island
June 11 last year, the men employed
in the government river , work were
employed eight hours a day. Judge
Taft while here learned much of local,
conditions. In a few days an order
went forth through the channels of
the army, from the secretary of war's
office, changing the working day. of the
men employed on river improvement
here ,to 10 hours a day. and to the
present time the men working at Milan
and in the Mollne pool put in 10 hours
a day for the same pay they formerly
received for an eight-hour day.
. Protrnt In Yaia.
- Many of the employes entered a for
mal protest against the rule, but Judge
Taft remained firm, and the order
sticks. It Is said to have been the first
tlme.in the history of the government,
since the eight-hour day was estab
lished, that the rule was abrogated
And it was abrogated right Lere, and
by the order of Judge Taft, the present
candidate of the republican party for
president, who claims to be a friend
of the laboring man.

GET RICH STRIKE IN MINE
Former Rock Islander and Partner
; Find Gold Vein in Nevada. .
News has been received here from
Gold Circle, Nev., telling of a lucky
strike in a gold mine of a former Rock
Islander. James Boyle, a resident of
this city some 25 years ago, in partner'
ship with another man, leased a mine
known as the Esmeralda, and they
have . been tunneling , for some time.
Lately they struck a very rich vein of
gold-bearing ore, some of . which will
run as high in value as $2,000 per ton.
They will work the vein for all it Is
worth, and as It runs clear across their
mine they will probably be made rich.
