In ita Issue today the TrI-City
Weekly Labor Review haa an article
which suggests that it will be pos
sible to secure the headquarters of
several of the International anions
for the three cities if the commer
cial bodies of Rock Island. Moline
and Davenport assisted in the move

comment appears in this week's is
sue of the labor paper:
Indianapolis, Ind., May 10. 1911.
As a result of the illegal procedure
in the removal of J. J. McNamara,
secretary of the International As
sociation of Bridge and Structural
Ironworkers, from Indiana to Cali
fornia and the seizing of the rec
ords of that organization without
authority of law there is a well de
fined movement "on foot to remove
from the state of Indiana all the
headquarters offices of the national
and international labor organizations
now located there.
The movement has received con
siderable Impetus and already prop
osition have been received by a
number of organizations looking to
the removal of headquarters to
other sections of the country. Illi
nois and Iowa are the first states to
put in their bids, and on account of
their central location and assur
ances of fair treatment of labor or
ganizations are looked on with fa
vor. It is said on good authority that
Springfield. 111., has made a Etmnfr
bid for the headquarters of the
Mine Workers, that Peoria, I1L, was
after the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen and Enginemen and that
Des Moines. Iowa, has made a bid
for one of the oSces.
This contemplated removal means
much to the state of Indiana, and
particularly to the city of Indianapo
lis, which has long been the head
quarters of some of the strongest la
bor organizations in the country.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars of
union money are now on deposit in
the local banks and the business of
the unions amounts to millions of
dollars annually. A strong effort is
being made by the bankers who are
naturally averse to losing this busi
ness, to block the fast growing sen-1
timent in favor of removal. !
RECORDS ARE SEIZED.
The unwarranted and illegal seiz- j
ure of the books and records of the !
Iron Workers by private detectives i
I has done much to convince the of-
fleers of the various organizations j

the belief that Iowa at least will !
