Mr. Que expressed the pleas ire and the
honor be fell when called Un to ad
dreaa a gathering of worklngnen.
Wo ooght to be in the warm tst gyniia
thy. as our interests flow together. The
true minister of the gospel is a friend of
the working classes, and of the poor and
helpless. The very nature of bis calling
sends him out to work in the interest of
other. 1 believe the gi-eat r form and
benevolent enterprise of the age are due
more to tbern tban any oth r cla of
men. We are bard toiler in tbe interest
of humanity. It is our privileg j and dutv
to touch in our discourses upon all
themes tbat concern our country and hu
manitypolitical, secular and religious.
In thi land of liberty we wa it to fear
lessly discus every measure that effect
our citizens. There are two principles
that should govern us in evtry reform
enterprise: One is organ iz.tioD: theolb
er agitation. No great refornation ever
came in any otuer way. Tho abolition
of slavery was brought about by orgaoU
iziog and agitating until tbe waole coun
try was stirred. This Is the hopeful fea.
ture in this eight hour movement that
brings us together this even ng. It is
not a question concerning s,n e political
party or church creed, but on j effecting
all classes. You certainly t.re taking
hold of this matter in the mont sensible
and Intelligent way.
Public discussion, printed cocuraents.
calling the attention of tbe Intelligeut
public, and when the movement is
prope ly understood it will commend
itself. You are a hundred time
more likely to ucceed in this way
tban though you went out on strikes and
boycotting. The laboring mi-n in this
country, if organized on the principle of
righteousness, would be tbe miuhtiest
power In this land. Tbey wjtild com

Tbe capitalist claims a ribl to bis
property, and dictates regarding the way
tt is to be used, and it is right. And the
workingman has a slock in tiade it is

will work, and with proper organization
be can do it. But you are tolc it is your
right to work aa few bours ii a dav as
you choose, but yon should be paid pro
portionally. But such do no. take into
account tbat the lee hour of toil tbe
better quality of work you w II do, and
judging from the past the le hour of
work tbe better pay. Men who now
work the greatest number of bours get
the least wagea.

When the eight hour principle is gen
erally recognized we will ee a better
state of things among our working
classes, tbey will receive better pay, more
men will be employed and a better qual

be a better class of cit'zen. I ut we are
told that it will only sflord mo e time to

but the reverse is true. Wao are the
drunkards and dissipated men imong our

work tbe greatest number of hours and
receive tbe smallest wages. Oyer taxing
the physical powers tend to dissipation.
Eight boura for aleep, eight Dour for
labor and eight bout for recrialion and
Improvement of the mind. TLere is no
country in tbe world where more work-
ingmen own tbeir own homes .ban here

tbe hardest work, working tbe seat hours

The christian religion can scarcely

tion to go to church and do nit appre
ciate the gospel blessing. What tbey

finer feelings will develop and love for

themselves. Such a borne wil) cultivate
loyalty to our country and a respect for
our laws. We want in tbi lend of lib
erty a higher type of citizenship, a con
scientious regard for the nghlii or others.
We all should stand on Const' great

do for you, do ye even o to t em."
A committee composed of tbe officers
of the league reported tbe following
DECLARATION OF PURPt 8K8
of the league which was adoped;
We, tbe officer of tbe R ick Island
Eight Hour League have been informed
tbat a rumor ia current tbat tbis league ia
not what it is claimed to be jy tbe pros
jector of tbe movement, or in other
word, that it i political cl erne run in
the interest of some political t arty, or in
tbe Interest of some one looking for a
political office, take this method of itat
ing that if such rumor are in circulation
they are absolutely false at d without
foundation of any kind whatever to war
rant them; and that the parties using
tbem are not in the interest tl or true
friends to tbe labor cauae nor in favor of
tbe eight hour day. We look upon tbem
if there be auch in our midst. a enemies
and not friend of labor, notwithstanding
all assertion tbey may make to tbe con
trarv. And as tbey are not f dr enough
in this matter to come to tb meetings
and make known, there. In public, their
reason for auch statement, sod give the
member of tbe league a chance to de
fend themselves, and at the t me time to
refute those charge, we deem it onr
duty, both to tbe people and ouiselves a
officer of tbe league, and to : ta members
generally, to make this public atatement
of tbe objects of this league.
Tbe eight hour agitation ii neither a
local or a national matter. It is so in
ternational matter, and in on er to prop
erly discuss and understand it, leagues
are formed, and we. as worl ing people,
deem it a duty wa owe to onrselves, our
families and the working class in gen
era!, to keep np with the times and or
ganize and agitate for shorter hour of
toil for tbe masses. In doing this we
hope to help alleviate a great deal of the
distress and suffering that now exist in
all branches of honorable toil. We
hope to establish the elght-bonr day in
all branchea of industry; we hope to
make it s universal measure instead of a
sectional one, and thus creating a healthy
demand in the labor market, and con
tribute to tbe health, happiness and pro
perity of the people. We hope, through
tbis measure, to give all a chance to earn
a livelihood. We sincerely believe tbat
tbe universal adoption of the eight-hour
day will give all working people leisure
and opportunity to enjoy the fruit of
Knowing this to be the object, and tbe
only object, of this league, we now state,
over our signatures, that all persons who
are Interested in the welfare of this conn
try and its institutions, regardless of na
tionality, creed. ez or color, are welcome
to, and are respectfully invited to attend
its meetings and become member of the
Kock Island Eight Hour league. Also
that all are invited to attend all meetings
and discus tbe eight hour day, whether
in favor or against It. whether they are
member or not.

TO HELP HENNEPIN.
Preliminary Sleeting at Davenport
Last Night. .

Warn for the Caaal- Exerative
As tbe time approaches for the conven
ing of congress, interest In tbe great Hen
nepin canal project is being revived, and
the indications are tbat the friends of the
meaiure will make a determined fight for
a congressional endorsement this winter.
Tbe preliminary steps towards an effec
tive organization were taken at Daven
port last night, where a meeting of repre
scntative citizens of Davenport and Rock
Island was held in tbe Business Men's
association rooms. Among those pres
ent from Rock Island were Fred Hass,
Henry Carse, E. H. Guyer, Howard Wells,
Dr. J. W. Stewart. R. Crampton, W. S.
Knowlton, Dr. W. A. Paul and J. J.
Mr. W. F. Rosa was elected chairman
and J. B. Phillips, secretary. Hon. J.
H. Murphy addressed the meeting at
some length on tbe importance of an or
ganized effort to present the matter fully
before congress, and to push Hennepin's
claims for federal recognition with re
newed activity. He deprecated tbe
apathy his Davenport friends were mani
festing in not attending tbe meeting in
larger numbers, and complimented Rock
Island on its good representation. The
Davenport papers, he said, had not even
published tbe strong endorsement tbe
canal bad received in tbe waterways con
vention held in Cincinnati in October,
and if more interest was not manifested
here, it was not likely much could be
In regard to Hennepin's chances be
fore congress, however. Mr. Murphy
thought they were never brighter than
today. There was a friendly feeling if
not a warm interest in tbe project both in
the house and senate. The speaker of
tbe house would undoubtedly be favora
ble to it, as all the candidate were
avowed advocates of tbe measure. It
was also very probsble that the presi
dent would say a kind word in his forth
coming message, and it was pretty near
certain that Congressman Henderson
would be made chairman of the commit
tee on railways and canals, w hich would
be a big point in its favor. When Mr.
Murphy closed by stating tbat be had
abiding faith in the ultimate success of
the Hennepin canal, and that be proposed
to go to Washington next week and stay
there six months if necessary, at his own
expense, laboring in tbe good cause, be
was heartily applauded.
Upon motion a committee, consisting
of Hon. J. H. Murphy, of Daveaport,
and Fred Hass and Henry Carse, of thia
city, was appointed to select an executive
committee of fifteen, three from each
city. The committee reported the fol
