THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, MAY 8, 1911.
TO BE WITHHELD
FOR THE PRESENT
No Prospect of Immediate In
stallation of Taylor System
at Eock .Island Arsenal.
COMMITTEE MAKES REPORT
Trip to Washintrfcon Apparently of
Advantage to Contention of
That there will be no Immediate
installation of the Taylor system of
shop management at Rock Island ar
senal, as the substance of the re
port of the Arsenal Federation com
mittee which recently returned from
Washington. The report was submit
ted to the federation yesterday aft
ernoon a Turner hall. Davenport, by
members of the committee. C C
Wilscn of Rock Island, acted as chair
man of the meeting. There were more
thar. 700 men present.
OlTl.I.VE OF THE WORK.
After a brief address of welcome
by Mayor Alfred Mueller, Mr. Wilson
who accompanied the committee to
"Washington, bur returned before the
work "as completed, gave an outline
of the situation and then introduced
Harry Simpson of Davenport. The
other speakers were W. H. Bragdon
of Davenport, B. D. Dyas, Rock Island
and N. P. Aiifas, Davenport. The
conferences of the committee with
General Crozler, chief of the ord
nance department and with Secretary
of War Dickinson were outlined thor
oughly. The committee received no
satisfaction from these officials, as
both are heartily in favor of the sys
tem. The matter was then taken to
President Taft by the committee, and
as a result of the conference with
him. it is thought that the installa
tion of the system at the ar.senal by
the war dc-partment will be head
ed off by the president. While
the war department is in favor of the
sytni, the president is apparently
f..'iai!)it i. At present, there is a res-f.-l
Mi. in cgainst the installation before
Hi- ial.or committee of congress and
if :' .ilir.fst a certainty that this com
r.i.' i-f will present the resolution in
OI TI.OOK IS FAVORABLY
There is scarcely a doubt in the
minds of the committee that the house
will favor the position of the work
men, and head off permanently the
Installation of the system.

$250 new pianos are being sold for
less than $100, on payments of $1
per week and the $5 50 player-pianos
are being sold for less than
$3 00, payments of $2 per week. Is
it any wonder there is an excited

"I wonder if the real bargains are
all sold?" Many times bargains are
advertised and when you go to the
store you hear them 6ay, "That cer
tain priced piano advertised has been
sold." Not so in this case, as an
entire carload of each make and
price advertised can be seen in the
large warerooms of the Griggs' Mu
sic House, where there is ample room
to display the product of the well
known manufacturer who is adver
tising his goods in a way that will
benefit the piano purchaser. Up un
til the time this paper went to press
over 25 pianos have been sold to
pianoless homes in and around Dav
