THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS
WEDNESDAY, 'ATOTTST 0, ion.
Object of Joint Conference Be
tween Builders and Board
EXPECT GOOD RESULTS
Cniform System Proposed for the
Best Interest of All Concerned.
H. W. Horst. Henry W. Tappendorf
and H C. Landeck were named at the
Tri-City Master Builders' association
at Its regular meeting In the Safety
building yesterday afternoon as a com
mittee to call upon the board of edu
cation and present a request for thJ
cooperation of the school board In ar
ranging a plan on which the master
builders are working for a systematic
apprenticeship system. The board of
education at its regular meeting last
evening heard the request, and ex
pressed approval of the plan. Super
intendent H. B. Hayden, Principal A.
J. Burton and A. G. Hill were appoint
ed a committee to confer with the
committee of the builders, and to sub
mit a definite plan of instruction and
cooperation for the approval of the
PLAJf OP APPRENTICESHIP.
The plan of the Tri-City Master
Builders is in brief to indenture ap
prentices on a four-year scale to be
agreed upon between them and jour
neymen carpenters, and to provide for
sending apprentices to school three or
four months during the school year,
probably in the winter season when
there ia not much building work being
done. By this means it is hoped to
arrange a plan whereby an apprentice
will be amply qualified to enter upon
the duties of a Journeyman carpenter
at the end of his apprenticeship. At
present apprentices secure employ
ment and work with one man for a
period of time, after which they may
go to another, and soon they are lost
track of and are working as journey
men carpenters, when in reality they
tire only saw and hatchet men.
HAISI.tti THE STANDtllD.
The plan which is now proposed is
offered with a view of raising the
standard of work of Journeymen car
penters and better ' fitting them to
make advancement, while at the same
time protecting those who are competent.

IS HELD AS A WITNESS
Were He Not Needled by State ut a

City Chat "
-HE NEVER TOLD A LIE."
I saw him standing In the crowd
A comely youth and fair;
There was a brightness In hia eye,
A glory in his hair.
I saw his comrades gaze on him
His comrades standing by;
I heard them whisper each to each,
"He never told & lie."
I looked in wonder on that boy
As he stood there so young;
To think that never an untruth
Was uttered by his tongue;
I thought of all the boys I'd known
Myself among the fry.
And knew of none that one could say,
"He never told a lie."
I gazed upon that youth with awe
That did enchain me long;
I had not seen a boy before
So perfect and so strong;
And with a something of regret
I wished that he was I,
So they might look at me and say,
"He never told a lie."
I thought of questions very hard
For boys to answer light
"How did you tear that Jacket, sir?"
"My son, what caused the fight?"
"Who left thegate ajar last night?"
"Who ate the apple pie?''
What boy could answer all of these
And never tell a lie?
I proudly took h!m by the hand
My words with praise were rffe;
I blessed that boy who never told
A falsehood In his life;
I told him I was proud of him
A fellow standing by
Informed me tnat that boy was dumb
Who never told a lie."

John Craig Files Hill in Circuit
Clerk's Office Alleging He Was
Tricked Into Matrimouy.
Incorrigibleness and the habit of
helping himself to things which be
long to other people and numerous
other petty offenses, resulted in Wil
liam Payne, a 10-year-old negro, be
ing taken into the county court this
morning before Judge It. v. Olm
sted. William has caused his moth
er all sorts of worry and sorrow by
his actions and refused absolutely
to bend to her will. Therefore, 6he
appealed to Miss Dina Ramser, po
lice matron, who took the boy Into
the county court. The fact that Wil
liam is the principle witness in a
criminal case which is to come up
for trial in September is all that kept
him from being declared delinquent
and sent to St. Charles.
As it was, he was released on pro
bation and placed In the custody of
Miss Ramser. He is to report to her
at, the Association house three times
a day. Any transgression from the
right way will land him in the home
