THE CAUSE OF CHARITY.

11 ii if i by Krupreta to Bill
Meet l mill tilcv l i i
Owing to a misunderstanding, arising
out of the change of time for the Lawler
charity meeting, there was not as large
an attendance at Turner hall Saturday
night when the time came for calling it as
there would otherwise have heen. and
Mercy knows tbre should have been.
Home intimated that the mayor had acted
indiscreetly in that one little admontion
in his proclamation, "Don t forget your
pocket-books," lint let us hope that this
reminder played nn part in detaining
people from attending. One thing is
certain: That those who were present
were willing to eive freely and abun
dantly, and an inform il canv-tss found
each one ready to be one of the five hun
dred to give one dollar to the relief of
suffering and starving humanity.
After some discussion by those in
charge of the meeting it was thought
best to adjourn to Market square, and
this was done. A wapon was secured at
Coyne's livery stable and ro'led over to a
suitable space near Thomas' drui: store,
and Mayor McConochie mounting it,
fittingly introduced to the crowd whii-h
quickly assembled, the speaker of the
evening, Congressman Frank Lawler, of
Chicago, who was given a complimentary
ovation. Mr. Lawler did nut indulge in
preliminaries, but went directly into his
ubject. He represented the citizens'
committee of the city of Chicago that was
making a canvass of Illinois for relief for
n impoverished and suffering people.
In our state of plenty. lM.iMni human be
ings are stsrving and have been in that
condition since May f . Thousands of
patriotic lives have been sacrificed in the
laal quarter of a century for the aboli
tion of slavery. Yet in those days be
fore the negro was given his free
dom, he knew that at night when
when his dty's work was done that his
meal would be ready for him. The 24.
. held in worse than bondage today,
have no knowledge where even one meal
a day is to come from Day after day
pasaea with them with not enough to keep
soul and body together lone they are
starving day by day for want of the or.?i
nary necessaries of life. One who has
not visited the scene of this abject rai
ery has no idea of its client. Children
crying at their almost MaJ and helpless
parent?' feet for fond, women with their
brents dried up, with emaciated children
stinging their mothers' hearts with their
pitying appeals for the food of nature.
When elected to congress from the Sec
ond district in OMOtg . Mr I. iwler said
be believed he was chosen not only to
represent the people of his congressional
district, but of the entire state of Illinois
the same as any of the twenty members
of the congressional delegation of the
stale. He believed he hud a plain duty
to perform when any cilamlty threatened
the people . What more direful situation
could be realized than this? In Spring
Valley, a town but a few miles from this
prosperous and contented city, now in
the year of renewed vigor and growth,
people have been three months without
potatoes, surviving on bread made from
fiiurand corn meal, without even salt.
He then briefly described the existing
troubles of the first cut down of one half
m the working forces of the helpless
miners, who divided up tht ir forces in
order to give all employment, working in
alternate details tht final the shutting off
of provisions and the threats of eviction
which were finally withdrawn, and the
Up to tonight, the speaker said, be had
made no allusion to politics In his ad
dresses, he had simply appealed for food,
but now he had got Bill Scott, the mil
lionaire owner of these mines, where he
wanted him, be that politics or not. His
last proposition to the miners was an in
suit to them that they would not accept
It was simply a roundabout way of fun-
ing them to work for less than seventy-
five cents a day, on which they could not
live. He watt attempting to enslave
them as every other working man in the
state, and ii was better to starve to death
on the ground fighting for a human prin
cipal than down in the shaft in subjec
tion to Scott's damnable oppression and
insult. For seven years the miners re
ceived $1.50 a day, hut it has been grnd
ually cut down until Sott makes the in
sulting proposition to mine coal at sev
enty cents a ton. It means fif
teen cents per ton reduction,
and nearly Us) per eent more
dead work to perform a reduction
of at least twenty-live percent. Accord
ing to the statistics of this state the
average wages of miners amount to $21
per month, the Spring Valley miners
receive 21 to f2:t. Out of this $5 to
f? must be paid for rent: 92 N for fin
and out of the remainder board must lie
bought, while the miner must also bur
his own tools and blasting powder and
also pay for the sharpening of bis tools
Added to this is the thought that their
children are denied the privileges of
education, and the consequence is the
springing up of an igooranl class of pen
pie. The question has been asked, "why
don't these miners leave the mines and
go somewhere else?" The next oueation
it "where will they go?" St. Louis has
25,000 unemployed laborers, Chicago
85,000. Where can they go when they
have not the price of a pound of salt
Some papers bad said some cruel things
about the efforts being made in behalf of
these poor starving people. The speaker
only naked such people to lie charitable,
remembering that every newspaper man
that writes a I ins against these poor men
is the same as putting a dagger to th
hearts of the starving women there, and
aiding Bill Scott in driving them into
"It has been said," continued the
speaker, "that Lawler would not attack
Bill Scott because he is a democrat. That
makes no difference to me. As I have
said before, I have not touched upon pol
itics In my addresses until tonight, but I
have now expressed myself on Bill Scott
as a democrat. I want to say a word
about our 'republican governor. Yon
will remember that during the Fifer and
Palmer campaign for gubernatorial hon
ors a year ago now, Fifer responded to
Oen. Palmer's demands that the 'Pinker
tons must go,' by pledges that if he was
elected governor the Pinkertons would
go. At Oodley one of the mines in dis
pute today. Pinkerton men are on guard.
Fifer knows it and this stows he has not
kept bis word. I don't raise this because
Fifer is a republican; bad he heen a dem
ocrat instead of a republican I should
have paid my respects to him before now.
I believe as a rule, he is making a good
governor, and was generous enough to
send the miners' relief committee $100,
but he in not keeping his word in respect
to Pinkertnns, and I denounce him for
Then Mr. Ltwlcr made a feeling ap
peal for the suffering people. He hoped
that the people of Rock Island would be
as charitahiy disposed toward the people
of their own state and neighbors as they
were toward the Johnstown sufferers.
The business men and working men
should give their mite. Here he spoke of a
message appearing in the associated press
dispatches to the effect that at Slreator
the miners had refused to go to go work
by arbitration. He had telegraphed
them during the afternoon and bad re
ceived a reply, which he read, that the
miners there had gone to work again
even at the reduction The trouble was
with the big mine owners not the little
ones, who were afraid to oppose the
monster comhinati ons or their dictators,
lest they be crushed by the mine owners'
trust. In two Weeks the miners would
protiably all be back at work, but in the
meantime their families are starving and
dying. It was for them that he appealed
and he hoped that the committee, which
the mayor would appoint, would receive
In conclusion he spoke of his visit to
Rock Island arsenal anil assured his
hearer that he would give any appro
priations f ii- its improvement bischeeiful
assistance in congress, and touching in
this connection upon the claims of the
island workingmen, stated that the gov
eminent was responsible for the differ
ence in time of labor over eight hours,
and that the claims should he presented
and that they would surely sooner or
later be allowed, as they should be. He
wound up with a very pleasant compli
ment to Mayor McCunoclne foi his i (Torts
in behalf of the miners.
