The plans for Rock Island's mass meet
ing to hear the situation of the Northern
Illinois miners and their families dis
cussed and to contribute to these starr
ing people,have been altered considerably
since the publication of the mayor's
proclamation in last night's A Reus. As
stated then there was a general de
sire to hear Congressman Frank Lawler,
of Chicago, explain the condition of the
starving people, bis appeals in their be
half all over the state having been at
tended by a genereus outpouring of aid
and sympathy for a people who are sus
taining a principle and enduring more
misery and suffering than can be fully
pictured by human tongue. The efforts
to secure Mr. Lawler were attended by
success, but a telegram received late last
night stated that he would be here this
morning in company with Won. Scaife,
state secretary and treasurer of the Na
tional Progressive union of miners and
mine laborers, and would speak tonight.
Messrs. Lawler and Scaife arrived at the
Harper this morning, it being impossible
because of other arrangements to give
Rock Island any other time but tonight,
and the purpose being to devote an even
ing to both Rock Island and Davenport.
Messrs. Brooks and Morton, have
been in the city several days, as hereto
fore related, arranging for the meeting.
Mayor McConochie, Deputy Sheriff Cav
anaugh and others were consulted and at
a meeting held in the Arsus office at
8 30 o'clock, it was decided to call the
meeting at 7:30 tonight, instead of Mon-.
day night, and to urge that all be on hand
promptly at that hour, as Mr. Lawler and
Mr. Scaife expect to speak in Davenport
after the Rock Island meeting. There
will, it is unnecessary to state, be an im
mense meeting and all should attend
promptly and be prepared to give accord
ing to his means. Human beings in Illi
nois are suffering for want of the ordina
ry necessaries of life, and no one can lis,
ten to the story of their situation without
giving, if only a mite.
The plow shop band will donate its
services for music tonight. B'.euer's
band had been secured for Monday night,
but has other engagements for tonight.
THE CONGRESSMAN IJiTEi VIEWED .
Congressman Lawler and Mr. Scaife.
paid a visit to Rock Island arsenal early
this morning, and the congressman after
inspecting the buildings and the work in
proeress, returned to the city, and after
paying his respects to Congressman
Gest, was seen at ex-City Attorney Mc
Eniry's office by an Ajmcs reporter, and
expressed himself as greatly pleased with
what he had seen. The dam, he said,
showed itself to be a much needed im
proyement, and a liberal appropria
tion should be made by congress for its
completion. Other improvements, the
congressman said, were pointed out to
him as necessary, and that he would use
his best endeavors to assist in securing
When asked as to his ideas of the
Hennepin canal. Mr. Lawler said:
''I havealwaya been a strong advocate
of iucb a measure, and my support bas
always been most enthusiastically given
this particular project. I have always
favored any improvement that would give
a ship canal from the lakes to the Mis
sissippi, and hope and trust that we shall
have one in the not far distant future.
The congressman's opinion as to the
prospects for the location of the coming
world a fair was asked, and he replied:
"I am for Chicago, first,' last and al
the time, and furthermore, I don't be
lieve there is a shadow of a doubt but
what Chicago will get it. I base this as
sertion on the fact as I believe it to be,
that a great many who now favor Wash
ington, will favor Chicago, as between
it and New York. With the united
front of the south, west and northwest
that this will give us, there seems to be
no doubt of Chicago's success."
Turning on to the subject of the min
ing troubles and sufferings, which have
really brought Mr. Lawler to Rock Isl
and, he waa asked to relate his experi
ences with the relief movement for the
suffering people, and he said:
"Two months and a half ago a canvass
was made among the business men. of
Chicago for food and clothing. We se
cured two car loads and took them to
Braidwood, Coal City, Clark City and
Brace ville. We found a great deal of
distress existing, aod going back to Chi
cago renewed our efforts and got two more
cars loaded and took them to Spring Val
ley, Braidwood, LaSalle and other min
ing points in that vicinity, where
found untold Bufferings. We returned
Chicago and mustered the third train
and took it to Streator. where we
found six thousand people in great dis
tress. Then we commenced oar canvass
outside of Chicago, which we are still
engaged in- We have been sending reg
ularly since all we could get, but as there
were 22,000 people on the verge of star
ration at the outset, the first relief was
only temporary, and the number is now
increased to 24,000. u those who had a
little means laid b j hare exhausted it,and
are now forced to cast themselves upon
the public for help. Milwaukee, Wis.,
and South Chicago, Elgin. Peoria.
Springfield and Quiacy, la this state,
hard exerted themselves, and are con
tributing their share toward these starr
Mr. Lawler waa asked if he had any
thing to say about the recent charges of
the Chicago republican press that he was
attempting to make political capital out
of his present endeavors, and his reply
"No, nothing at all. I only hope the
writers will be charitable with me. There
is no reply necessary to such charges, 1
"They are lie J" spoke up Mr. Scaife
who was present and had heard the con
rersation: "Every one of them lies and
as good a republican says so as there is
in the state of Illinois. I have always
been a republican and I have accom
panied Mr. Lawler on ail his trips and
heard all his speeches, and he haa never
uttered a word, directly or indirectly that
might be construed into haying a politi
cal bearing. He has not referred to poli
tics in any way or in any sense."
"My sole mission has been in the in
terests of common humanity and human
charity," Mr. Lawler interrupted. "There
were no polities thought of until the
Tribnne't article appeared. In fact the
men working with me are of all shades of
political affiliation, even to a 'mugwump.'
There should be no politics at such a
time as this. But 111 tell you one thing
that I am going to do tonight; I am going
for Bill Scott on that last proposition of
his which is of no possible justice or ad
vantage to the miners, as I will explain.
Then I think, too, that I shall give
Governor Fifer a piece of my mind, call
it politics or not, but it shall be my first
allusion of this kind. But the point in
which I wish to arraign Gov. Fifer is
this: Daring the last campaign Private
Joe assured his hearers throughout the
state that if elected governor, the Pink
ertons must go'; that if he was elected
governor, the strong arm ot the law
should prevail, and that where danger of
trouble appeared from strikes or other
wise, the law should be enforced by
state troops. There is at Godley. where
ia located ona of the mining disputes, Pin
kerton men on guard. I insist that
the governor is not carrying out his
pledges, and I don't believe iiis pol
itics to charge him with a viola
tion of those pledges. I believe in
the enforcement of the law and order.but
it should be done by the law's sworn
troops and not by armed private individ
uals, and I say the governor should de
mand the surrender of these Pinkerton
men at Godley."
Congressman Lawler ia obliged to re
turn to Chicago tonight to attend a meet
ing tomorrow, and next Tuesda
speaks at a miners' picnic at Coic T De
in this congressional district. hester
