THE ROCK ISIIAXD ARGUS. WEDX12SDAY,- APRIL 5, 1911.
VOTING ON SCALE
Final Decision of Journeymen
to Be Announced at Tri
City Council Meeting.
NO TROUBLE EXPECTED
Agreement Binds Contractors
Employers for Two Tears
From May 1.
Information gathered today Indi
cates that union carpenters of the tri
cltles will accept the tentative con
tract recently drawn up by a com
mittee representing their district
council '..-.3d a delegation of the mas
ter builders' association. The associ
ation of boas carpenters had given its
representatives power to act. The
conference agreed on a two-year con
tract, or agreement, to be effective
May 1, and to contain a clause pro
viding for five cent Increase in the
minimum wage paid the union men.
This means that the master build
ers have placed their o. k. on the ten
tative contract. Whether the two
year agreement will become binding
May 1 now depends on the carpenters
It was learned today that a number
of the Davenport carpenters' unions
and possibly some of the locals on
thlB side of the Mississippi all mem
bers of the Trl-City District council
have voted in favor of the tentative
IOB OBJECTIONS ALSO.
It Is said, however, that some of the
locals have placed themselves on rec
ord as objecting to some of the
clauses In the proposed contract.
At a meeting In, the near future Tri-;
City District council of the carpenters '
will cast its vote on the matter and '
whatever decision Is taken at that !
time will be binding on all the locals i
in the Jurisdiction.
The outlook for this council meet-1
ing is that the majority of delegates I
will favor acceptance of the tentative
contract in which case May 1, 1911,
will end, both bosses and journeyni'-n !
acting under a definite mutual under- '
standing. There Is no such contract
or agreement In force at this time, j

Gentlemen: I pause for a moment
to call your attention to the death of
Dr. O. G. Craig, an ex-city official of
this city. He served the city as health
commissioner. In fact, was the first
health. commlaeloner the city ever had.
His labors came at & time when the
city was In Its infancy, and It required
not only tact and energy to make some
headway, but It required professional
skill and knowledge to cope with the
then existing conditions of the city.
But time will not erase the things he
did then, neither will the future forget
the things done by this leader ef men,
a real patriot and an-esteemed citizen.
The city can well be proud that he
served it and helped aet It right toward
the splendid growth and prosperity it
In all public matters this splendid
man was always present to lend a
hand and give his help, and the city as
well as Its citizenship will remember
with respect and a kind and sympa- j
thetlc reflection that in candor and eol-!
emn belief that be gave his part to
make this world better than It web.
Tux duty at this time is plain and I ' ,JLe famll7 of deceased, Dr. G. G. Craig,
would suggest that, in honor ef the ! our 8ince"e sympathy in this hour of

THIN HAIR ON TOP.
A Dose of Parteian Kage in Time
Multiplies One liair by Sine.
Young men, old men. middle
aged men all begin to worry when
the hair thins out on the top of the
head and the bald spot is getting
ready to appear in public.
They don't know what to do; they
get rattled, ask advice, try special
ists, listen to barbers and do every
thing they ought not to do.
To these men we want to say that
the Harper house pharmacy has a
prescription for the hair called
Parisian Sage and if it will not cause
hair to grow where the hair Is thin
ning out, nothing on this earth will.
And we want to say to everybody,
iran, woman and child, that you can
have your money back if Parisian
Sage isn't the best hair grower, hair
saver, hair beautifier and dandruff
cure on the market today.
It stops itching 6calp and falling
hair and makes balr grow thick and
abundantly. Fifty cents for a large
Lottie at the Harper house phar
macy and druggists everywhere. The
pirl with the auburn hair is on every
of the minutes of this meeting; that
a copy thereof be sent to the im
mediate family of the deceased Dr.
Craig; and that the newspapers of
the city be requested to publish this
message and these resolutions.
Done in open council this 20th day
of March, A. D.. 1911.
