The first formal public msetinp; of the
Itock Island Ei:hihour league was held
at Hillier's hall last evening. Rev. H.
C. Leland, pastor of the Tlrst Baptist
church, was the speaker, and his address
a thoroughly able and very thoughtful
one, was about an hour ioag and was
heard with the closest attention to the
The miscellaneous character of the au
dience indicated that the Interest In the
el;;bt-hour movement is not confined to
any particular party or clasn of people.
There were present members of. the
churches and of the labor onranirmions.
and of all the political parties.
In opening his addresa Vr. Leland
said that it was because the ISight-Hour
league was not a party in politics nor or
ganized in the interests or at y party or
sect, but purely for the di ussion and
advancement of the elght-hi ur move
ment, he bad consented to spetk. being in
sympathy with this movement, and be
lieving that Its discussion woi.ld advance
the interests of all classes. an J convinced,
after much study on the subjei t, that the
adoption of an eight-hour day would ad
vance the moral, social and intellectual
welfare of the country, he th utht that
the churchea and pastors shoild show
their interest by assisting the Movement.
This he believed could be don without
touching the purely political questions
with which the church has no richt to
meddle. In order to be an ad 'orate of
the elglit hour day, it is not necessary
that one should hold socialistic views,
nor be a pegiinist in his views concern
ing the condition of working people, a
condition which is in all enstntial re.
epecta InBaitely belter than it waa one
hundred years ago. Neither is it neces
siry to bold that there is a nectsoary an
tagonism between capital and labor, the
employer and the employed. In order to
secure the most rapid developm mt of the
great economic forces of the world, there
mast be tranquility and social order.
Strikes, boycots and lockouts only pro
long the strife, thev settle bolhing. If
the laboring classes would succted in the
eight hour movement they must -ecognize
and not antagonize natural laws, is the law
of supply and demand and coo petition,
the fact that character and not li gislatinn
is the basis of lasting social and political
institutions, the ends desired must be
gained by methods in harmony with our
The desire of the wage earner is the
same in general as that of the cupitalist,
viz: More of what he hits which lie recog
nizes ss good, or of the good which be sees
his neighbor enjoying more money, more
recreation, niore opportunity f r intel
lectual social and religious imprt vement.
As the laboring classes constitute seven
or eight-tenths of the populatiot , what
ever tends to secure to tbem creator
privileges Is a general beneQt to society,
the nation and the world, and will tend to
lift our already wonderfully alvanced
Civilization to a higher level.
It was argued that the eight hour day
would help in tbia direction by .'urn lin
ing employment for the unemployed, se
curing a better quality of work, Wealthier
workirgmen and happier homes among
tbem; that capital would be benet tted by
the larger demand made by the ir creased
consumption, and that the mors rapid
spread of intelligence and morali y win
these would insure a stronger nation.
History, sound economics and religion,
be said, demands that we move toward
shorter hours for the laboring mt n if we
wish to keep pace with the spiri: of the
age. and that the working man should
seek broader intelligence cont ol bad
habits, as the use of rum and tibacco.
Use the present opportunities of educa
tion, religion and the Sabbath carefully,
and agitate the question peaceal ly and
continuously not in the denunciation of
capital and clergy, and vested rigt ts. nor
in the anarchistic method of overthrow
ing all law and order in the fal: hope
that on the ruins of our present s; stem a
better could be erected. Not revolution,
but evolution is the proper method.

The city council had an animated ses
sion last evening. There was as usual
considerable that occurred which is of in
terest to the public that the official pros
oeedings do not necessarily note.
There were numerous entertaining, not
to say amasing, dialogues, and while a
large amount of good humor was thrown
in gratuitously, it did not interfere with
the work of the municipal body, but
served as spice to the otherwise unsea
soned monotony of the proceedings. The
present council gets along nicely. To be
sure there are tilts and now and then a
friendly exchange of complimeats, but on
the whole lta duty is discharged fearlessly
and with a proper regard for the best in
terests of the city, eyincing the fact that
the predominating spirit, while conserva
tive, ia progressive, and that under its
guiding policy the city is to witness the
greatest advancement it has ever known,
while future generations in reading
from the pages of municipal history the
names and deeds of the men who compose
it, will be forced to exclaim: "There was
a council as was a council!"
The interesting part of last night's
proceedings began when Aid. Negus
called for an explanation of the bill of
Pat Rooney for $128 as inspector of the
Third avenue sewer. The alderman con
sidered the bill extortionate and he
thought that if the chairman of the sewer
committee had a proper regard for the
dutiea of hia position the city need not
be called upon to make this expenditure.
While he was chairman of the sewer com
mittee he devoted his entire time to the
duties and bad not required the expense
of a sewer inspector.
To this reflection Aid. Scbnell, chair
man of the sewer committee, replied that
be was elected to serve the city aa an
alderman and not to stand over a sewer
all day. at the detriment of bis own busi
Aid Negus retorted that the aldermen
were elected to guard the interests of the
people. So believing he had done his
own sewer Inspection while chairman of
that committee and he moved that
Rooney's bill be rejected.
The mayor reminded Mr. Negus that be
was also a member of the sewer com
mittee last year and that there was an in
spector for every sewer constructed.
Aid. Edwards thought the alderman
from the Third ward had attended to his
duties as chairman of the sewer commit
tee with a vim when he did not know
that there was an Inspector at all. Re
thought the bill waa none too large aad
should be allowed.
Aid. Corken took the same view, and
the bill waa allowed without another de
bate. It waa reported that eight thousand
feet of new brick walk had been laid on
tbe north, east and west sides of Union
square and that the walk would be
pushed to completion Ibis fall if possi
ble. The council took up the claim of An
drew Etzel for $66 66 for service aa dep
uty health commissioner at the abattoir.
The city attorney's opinion was sought.
which was that tbe council was enjoined
from paying it. The only way to deter
mine how to pay it would be to order it
paid and tun tbe risk of being taken up
for contempt of court and then it could
be settled as to the council's rights in the
premises. It would then become a
question of sdjudication, and the writ
might then be construed.
Aids. Edwards and Scbnell spoke in fav
or of allowing the bill, and Alda. Buncher
and Schroeder doubted the city's right to
allow it. The bill, however, passed un
animously, as it should hare done. The
courts certainly did not contemplate
beating a poor man out of his well earned
money when it denied tbe city the right
to maintain an abattoir. The
council abowed commendable grit in
standing by E'zel's claim. He waa hired
In good faith, and the council ia morally
obligated to pay him.
Aid . Hampton presented the ordinance
for tbe extension of tbe Second avenue
pavement from Fourteenth to Fifth street,
the estimated cost of the enterprise, in
cluding grading and curbing, being $40,
480 80, and made a very creditable
speech in fsvor of the improvement.
Aid. Knox spoke in opposition to the
improvement on tbe ground that the
amount of tbe city'a portion of tbe unt
dertaking might be better expended other
A remonstance was presented headed
by J. S. Gilmore and tbe Rock Island
Aid. Schroeder and Corken both op
posed the extension.
Aid. Ntgus made a plea for tbe enter
prise. It would be tbe best thing possi- I
ble for tbe city and a piece of property on
Second avenue where there is paving
now had to his knowledge advanced $500
Aid. Edwards stated that Rock Island
had six blocks of paving already down.
Thi wa done practically in opposition
to the voice of the majority. Now that
majority was tbe other way pleased
with it. Under the plan for the
contemplated improvement the prop
erty holders would not feel It and
Rock Island would be getting a durable
improvement AJd. Edwards expressed
himself for paving always. The ordi
nance as originally presented wa then
passed and Rock Island, thanks to tbe
abiding good judgment of the council, will
have paved street for fifteen blocks at a
stretch. It wa a splendid move on the
part of the aldermen who voted for it,
and who, let It be hoped, will continue lo
abow a stiff upper lip, not only in stand
ing square upon their record, but in
granting other paving propositions until
Rock Island is from one and to the other
a paved city.
Atkinson 3c OiofT bid for the paving
of Eighteenth street from First to Third
avenues, aa stated in the record waa ac
cepted, th work to commence) on the
council's ordea. In view of tbe
way the contractors, who have been

(or a piece of land oa East Seventeenth
tract, twelv) feet wide, to enaV,e than

01 th site of their present building, waa
received and Aid. Corken promptly moved
that it be granted, but upon further con
sideration it was referred to the city at
torney to report at tbe next meeting.
The prayer will undoubtedly be granted
in the same spirit that has characterized
the council's course toward all public en
terprises. It will insure to the city tbe
handsomest business block in the
three cities and tbe city fathers will cheer
fully lend it a helping hand, which is
The session developed more eloquence
