Mat Tbi call for a meeting of those inter
ested in the eight-hour day movement
was responded to by an enthusiastic
gatbe ing at Hillier's hall last evening,
r resli ent Klotz. of the Rock Island Eight
Hour League, presided, and after explain
ing briefly the object of the meeting as
the result of rumors that the eiitht hour
ordin ince recently adop'ed by the city
count il was to be evaded In tbe contracts
for th i proposed paving extensions in the
city, be called upon Aid. A H
Ham ton who was present, to pre
sent I is views of the matter as a repre
sentative of the municipal body. Mr
Hnn ton stated that in the specifications
whicl accompanied the advertisement for
bids f r the proposed pavement the eibt
hour rdinanre was made part. It was
one o ' the specifications. If a contrac
tor vi dales any part of the specifications
be vi lates the whole, and the alderman
bad n doubt but that the city attorney
woulc draw an ordinance that would
amph provide for the atiict adherence to
every part and condition of the specifi
catiors contained in the advertisement.
Mr Klott asked if there would be a
penal y provided if the contractors did
not omply with tbe eight hour pro
vision Mr. Hampton replied that if the eight
hour irdinance is legal, the council can
comp -1 contractors to abide by it.
Mr Klotz held that tbe success of the
eight hour ordinance depended entirely
upon tbe vigilance of the council and the
mayoi to secure its enforcement. The
city a torney had nothing to do with
that. The ordinance was there and had
been made a part of the specifications
and the contractors kuew what to ex
pect vhen they bid on the work.
J. II. Danforth gave a sketch of the
eight hour raovemeut and its relation to
tbe ci ;y ordinances. He gave the names
of tlu nine aldermen who voted for the
recen ly passed nrdinaccn and of those
who I ad opposed il, but assured tbe
meeti lg that the entire aldernmnic body
and a 1 members of it, whether they
voted for the eight hour ordinance or
not, vere hound by their oath of office to
sustain it now as a law and whether they
believed in it or noi. In conclusion he
move i the appointment of a committee
of fiv - on resolutions.
Tin motion prevailing the llallmi
name I the mover as chairman and
Messiti Kotert Hudson of the Carpen
ter's union, H. Bostock, of tbe Glass
Workers' union. Wm. P. Dower, of the
Iron Moulders' union, and Steven O'Con
nor, c f the Eight Hour league.
Wl ile tbe committee was out Aid. Lar
kln was called upon to express his views,
and lie stated that he was present for en
ligbunment rather than to talk. He was
anxious to learn tbe opinion and the tot
sire of tbe laboring people and to perfect
bis own way of thinking as far as possi
ble thereby. For his part he could not
see hi'W the eight hour ordinance could be
violated He did not think there was any
d tngi r of any of tbe aldermen who had
voted for the eight hour ordinance waver
ing in their duty as applied to it, and lie
believed that the provisions in regard to
it In til contracts let by tbe city could be
Mr J. W. Cavanaugh called attention
to tht clauses in the declaration of prin
ciples in most Knights of Labor organi -zatlor
s depreciating the idea of contract
labor in all work to be performed by the
government, state, county or city. This
ground bad been taken because the
labor societies believed tbe people
had ost in every undertaking in
whicl they had trusted to con
tractus. The best way. the people
could accomplish work and protect
them: elves and protect labor was to do
it themselves. In this case the people
outside of those who were to pay for tbe
work by special assessment had an in
terest in the matter as tbe city tbe gens
eral ax payers had to pay for the
street and alley intersections. But as
long is contract work is to he permitted
at all. tbe eight hour day should be se
curer at any rate. The quicker the
eight hour day is adopted, the sooner
will the laboring people be more con
tented, more prosperous and more in
telligent. The qnestion is not as to
wag s. It is shall we have the eight hour
day, and the laboring men are attempt
ing t get it by an honest, legal way. As
laboiing people we want more time to
eductle ourselves, more lime to read
our newspapers, more time for our books,
more time for our families - our homes
wbicn constitute tbe real and first oh
pact of honest endeavor and labor.
We want the eight hour law enforced,
that will give to us the eight hour day.
We say nothing about the wages, we
want more time to ourselves. Let eight
hour i constitute a day's work and the
wage question will regulate itself.
Tie committee on resolutions reported
through its chairman the following,
whica were adopted by a rising vote after
tpeet hes bad been made by Messrs. Harry
Boat ck and J. B. Danforth favorable to
the s une :
W i ere as. The city council of this
city lid, on the 4th day of November
last, enact an ordinanre providing that
elgh hours of labor shall constitute one
Jay work for all laborers and workmen
in ai y and all work thereafter to be done
by tl is city, and that the so-called eight
hour labor system should be adopted
for i.ny and all such contract work
W jerk as. The said ordinance also
prov ided that all advertisements there
aftei to be published for bids and pro
pose is for work to be done by the city
by :ontract; and all other contracts
then -after to be entered into by and be
twet d the city and any contractor or
cont -acton for said work should ex
presdy state, set forth and stipulate that
the ight-iiour labor system must be
stric tly observed in the performance and
carving out of any work by any con
tractor or contractors lor the city; ana
Whereas, The said ordinance also pro
vided that whenever any contractor or
contractors should fail, neglect or refuse
to comply with tbe provisions of said
ordinance, or should order any laborer or
workmen in bis employ in the perform
ance of such work to extend the time of
labor so limited and stipulated, or should
suffer this to be done, tbe contract so
entered into by and between the city and
contractor or contractors for the per
formance of such work, should at once
be annulled and cancelled, and such
work or such part or parts thereof as
should be and remain unfinished at tbe
time of such aunullment and cancelation
be relet, and the contractor or contrac
tors should not be entitled to any claim
for damages on account of such annul
ment or cancellation; and
Wnv.HEAS, The said ordinance was
approved and signed by the mayor, and
became a law from and after its passage
and approval, and
Whbhkam The recent advertisement of
tbe city authorities soliciting bids for pav
ing did Be", forth that the contractor is re
quired to obey tbe ordinance relating to
the eight hour labor system for contract
work done by tbe city, and that all bids
must be accompanied with a certified
check in the sum of five hundred dollars,
payable to the order of the city treasurer,
which shall become forfeited to said city
in case the bidder shall fail to enter into
contraei, with approved securities, to ex -ecu'e
the work fbc the price mentioned In
bis hid. and according to the plans and
specifications, in the event that the con
tract should be awarded to him; now
therefore be it
Reiolcul, That we, citizens, voters and
tax -payers of tbe city of Rock Island, in
public meeting assembled, declare that we
expect and believe that our city author

spirit and provisions of said ordinance,
and make no contract for any work which
does not plainly set forth all tbe points
contained in said ordinance and adver
tisement, in a legal and binding maun r
A motion of Mr. Cavanaugh that
these resolutions be endorsed by the pres
ident and secretary of the Eight Hour
league and by the president and secre
tary and official seal of every labor or
ganization, and a copy given to the city
council, was adopted unanimously, after
which the meeting adjourned.
Home donate Entertainment!!.
The First Methodist church folks have
arranged for three first class entertain
ments to enable them to pay some of the
increased expenses which they have ins
curred since they left the old church.
These entertainments are of a class that
should recommend them to a large por
tion of our citizens who have been
auxiously waiting for some lecture or
anusement that would be an improve
ment upon the general class of those that
have drawn largely upon our people dur
ing the winter without having any sub
stantial impression behind tiiem.
The first lecture of the course is by the
Hon. R. G. Horr, well known as a for
mer congressman from Michigan, who
has a na'ional reputation as a wit aud
orator. His subject is interesting "Has
it beeu proven that the baboon is our
cousin? No sir!'1 This lecture is given
next Friduy evening, and if our people
wish to show their appreciation of a sub
stantial literary treat, they will be pres
ent in large numbers.
The second lecture is on March
11. next, by Frank Beard,
the caricaturist, his subject being
"Chalk Talk," illustrating his
lecture as he proceeds by telling and pun
gent caricatures in chalk on the black
board. Many of our citizens heard the
celebrated Thomas Nast when be lectured
in the west, tbe talks of Mr. Beard are of
the same character and are said to lie not
only instructive but amusing.
The last entertainment of tbe course is
on March 20 by the Royal Hand bell
ringers, tbe finest troupe of bell ringsrs
that ever travelled. They use 131 bells
iu their concerts and have played by
special request before all the courts in
Europe. This entertainment is not beard
by tbe people very often and many of tbe
young people now living have not heard
a company of bell ringers. To hear
them once will leave a longing to hear
them again that is not easy to gratify.
We bespeak for these entertainments a
cordial and liberal patronage, not only
for the real good that is in them, but to
assist a local enterprise that every citizen
of Rock Island should delight to assist.
The lectures and concert will be held
in Harper's theatre and all merit large

for their proposed new building on tbe
north side of Second avenue between
West Seventeenth street and Sev

from two different architects and call for
a square topped building, a mansard roof.
a building with bow windows and corner
turret; but all are imposing structures
with red sandstone fronts and brick sides
supplied with a great abundance of plate
glass, while the interior designs are mag
nificent. Two more designs are ex
pected this week and then a plan will be
adopted. The building, whatever is to be
its architectural beauty, is to cost in
the neighborhood of $80,000 and will be
the finest, moat modern and most com

A steer belonging to George McMur-

several other animals on McMurphy's

Des Moines, a former attache of the Reg

over and killed at the Perry street depot
in Davenport by a west bound freight
train on the Rock Island road at 9
o'clock last evening. Herb ad a gold
watch and chain and a ticket from Dav
enport to Des Moines, but that was all.
Mr. Welling was about forty years of
age, about five feet seven inches in
height, wore a black mustache, and his
hair was beginning to turn gray. He
had a dark suit of clothes on, a seal skin
cap with a peak to it, a black overcoat,
and wore kid gloves. He was a Mason, a
Knight of Pythias and a Modern Wood
man. The alarm of fire from the Fourth
ward at 7 30 last evening was needless.
Smoke was seen coming oyer tha roof of
Odd Fellows building at the corner of
Second avenue and Eighteenth street and
some one rushed into the M. & K. cloth
ing establishment and gave an alarm.
Investigation showed that there was no
tire at all, though a crowd quickly gath
ered and crowded about the buildings,
and had there been a fire would have
greatly hindered the work of the firemen.
Tbe Rescues, Wideawakes and Hollys
responded promptly, but tbe great num -ber
of people that swarmed about the
building offered another striking illustra
tion of the need of a systematic fire de
partment under tbe laws of which peo
ple who get within so many feet from
burning building are liable to immediate
An rnfurtnnate Accident.
A peculiar accident occurred on tbe
premises of Mr. J. H. Kerr on the bluffs
last evening. Mr. Kerr's daughter, Mrs.
Wm. Delien, who lives at the corner of
Eighth street end Eleventh avenue, had
been spending the day under the parental
roof , and last evening Mr. Kerr bitched
up his horse to drive her down Elm
street to meet a car. They bad just en
tered tbe huggy when the horse became
frightened, turning abruptly. Mr. Kerr
was thrown heavily upon the ground. and
Mrs. Dchen upon him. It was found
that Mr. Kerr had broken two ribs in the
left side, while his daughter was painful
ly bruised. None of the injuries, fortu
nstely, however, are regarded as serious.
