As vas expected. Saturday night's
special council meeting proved one of the
most inportant that has characterized
the deli wrations of the present municipal
body, lu object was to take definite
action with reference to the conditions
to be in posed upon the contractors who
shall bi entrusted with the proponed
paving i tensions. As is known several
remonstrances were tiled against the pro
jected improueraents on Second avenue
and on Twentieth street on the ground
that the eight-hour ordinance would in
crease he proportionate cost of the
assessm ;nt twenty per cent. While the
council, or the majority at least of the
alderrnei, were unable to see any foun
dation ft such assertions, there seems to
have ex sled in the minds of several of
the coui oilmen favoring the ordinance a
question as lo its legality, and the city
attorney having satisfied them that such
an ordinance was unconstitutional they
were no in favor of burdening the mu
nicipal code with it. notwithstanding they
would lue to have seen it in such shape
that it c uld be made binding.
Every alderman was present at Satur
day nigl t's special session except Mr
Scott of the Seventh ward. The mayor
was in b s seat. After the call, signed
by Aldeimen Hampton, Scbroeder and
Edward-. had been read, AM. Hampton
in exp'auation of the call referred to the
rejectim of all bids for paving at the
last mee.ing, the agitation that had
arisen oer the effect of the eight- hour
ordinanc e upon contemplated paving and
that the committee had arrived at the
conclusion that the eight hour ordinance
was not legal and that it came before the
council or further advice and instruction
before advertising for new bids. If the
ordinance was legal in the minds of the
council, the committee desired so to
understood, if not it should sot be per
mitted to interfere with the proposed pavs
ing imp ovements.
City Attorney Haas was on motion re
quested o give his opinion as to the legal
bearing f the ordinance. He said that
before tie ordinance was passed on the
night ol its presentation he had been
asked to give his opinion of it. and be
ben sta ed that he did not think it could
be enforced. Since then he had lookedJ
up the 1 tw more thoroughly and had
failed to find an authority showing that
such an irdinance could be enforced He
was therefore still of the opinion that he
had before. It was true that the Illinois
legislatu e passed a law in 136? stipulate
ng that tight hours might be constituted
day's li.bor under city employment, but
there wa an important modifying clause
which stated that such a law might he
enforced - unless of a contract to the con
trary 1 be city could not, the city at
torney crntended, ignore the modification
or adopt a law in efft-ct contrary to the
meaning tnd intent of the state law. The
igbt boi r ordinance could not be en
forced aiid any attempt to enforce it
would be contrary to the law and of no
The Be lion of the statutes applicable
to the ca:e is appended:

shall con ititute and be a legal day's work,
where there is no special contract or
agreement to lue contrary.
This i.et shall not apply to or in any
way affect labor or service by the year,
month o week, nor shall any person be
preveatei by anything herein contained
for working as many hours overtime, or
extra hoi rs. as he or she may agree, and
shall not in acy sense be held to apply to
farm labc r.
It is or this latter section or provision
that the Hty attorney bases his opinion
Aid. I smpton then presented an or
dinance -epeallng the eight hour ordi
Aid. l.dwardi stated that the city at
torney hi ving stated that the eight hour
ordinance was illegal, it should not re
main on he city code. He had failed to
find a c ty in the United States or in
Europe that had attempted t enforce
such an ordinance. The Rock Island
council tad shown its good will toward
labor in attempting it, but even if the
action w is legal the city had undertaken
too ii n; Nine hours would have been
a better move if it had been made in
strict haimony with statutory proviaions.
Eiffbt bcurs was too big a step, and in
making It, it placed the city at loo big a
disadvantage it was putting the city in
jeopardy When the eight hour day
becomes universal, God speed it here.
Mr. H ias again took the floor on the
leeal sta us of the ordinance, and stated
that it w M imposaible for ;he city to at
tempt to regulate how long a man work-
ing unde - a con tractor with the city shall
work, "he city cannot step in between
the ront -actor and his employes. The
eight hoi r law further giveB the property
holder, who is disposed to oppose im
provemeils on any pretence that might
offer itatlf, a chance to lake advantage
of techn cal errors and enjoin the city.
Aid. Shnell favored the repealing of
the ordinance on the ground that the
eight ho lr ordinance entailed in his mind
an addit lonal expense and worked a hard
abiD to i mall property holders, to say
nothing jf its illegality.
Aid. ghroexler slated that he voted for
ti... nri nance because he favored the
eight bo lr ordinance and because he had
no idea hat it was illegal. Now that he
had lear led the city attorney's opinion he
would v ite for the repealing ordinance
Tk. it. had no rurht to eive a contract
l LiV VJ a-w J
that won't stand in law. Beaidea. if the
eight ho ir ordinance would make a flaw in
the cont -act for pavement improvement
were waiting for a chance to find fault
and would not re slow to take advan
tage of any technical error that might
afford them opportunity to thwart the
council's progressive spirit.
Aid. Hampton said that on the re
monstrances which had greeted the coun
cil at its previous meeting were found
the names of many of a certain
class of properly holders who are not so
anxious to krll the eight hour law or
find fault with it, as to oppose city im
provements on general principles. What
he wanted was to see the city put itself
in a poaitioo where it can go right
ahead and triumph over all technicalities
sod overdrawn excuses. He wanted the
city to put itself in a position where it
can push its improvements without in
terference from those whose only aim is
to check the march of progress. He did
not want any loop holes left which ob
structionists could crawl into and make
trouble. Besides the city attorney had
come before the council with the law. If
the council was misguided by his opin
ion, be must alone stand the responsi
bility. He, therefore, favored the re
peal of the ordinance.
Aid. Knox voted agsinst the ordi
nance, he said, when it first came up,
because the city attorney had advised the
council that it was illegal. He was not
opposed to the eight-hour law or to eight
hour men, hut be believed tbe eight hour
ordinance was not only illegal but that it
would drive faen away from the city if
the understanding that they were to have
only eight hours pay was strictly adhered
to. He believed the eight hour contract
ordinance a hardship to the laboring
classes instead of a benefit.
Aid Evans slated that he was an eight
hour man; he had voted for tbe ordi
nance andnwould vote to maintain it.
He differed. with the city attorney's in
terpretation of the law. He thought
too that Aid. Knox's statement that the
eight-hour law would drive labor from
the city was entirely wrong. He could
not see either, on what ground prop
erly holders had to object to eight hours
as a day's work. It was immaterial to
them whether the men worked ten hours,
as loag as the men received pay only for
what they did. He was . in favor of
shortening the hours of the laboring men
as far as possible, and he took occasion
here to accuse Aid. Schnell of over
working and underpaying his men as a
contractor, and be said further that Aid.
Schnell would work his men by the elec
tric light if be could do so unrestrained
Aid. Schnell replied to the attack by
saying that it was wholly unfounded.
That he paid his men good wsges, at least
more than living expenses, which was
more, he said, than tbe alderman from the
Fifth could say.
Aid. Evans modified his accusation
with reference to Mr. Schnell somewhat
and the wordy war cea ed, Mr. Evans
uoiuiDg. nowever. mat air srnnell was
not a friend to labor.
Aid. LarkiD said he could not sec how
the cosi would be more whether the men
woraea eigm or ten hours There was no
use of anticipating trouble. He had not
met a laboring man yet but what was
willing to work and take his pay accord
ing to the lime he put in There had been
an under current to kill the eight hour law
ror several days ana now it was coming
to tbe surface. He did not believe the
ordinance as it stood was illegal.
Aid Negus held that tbe property
holders were many of them of the opin
ion that the eight hour day ordinance
would entail additional expense lo them
in paving work and were therefore op
posed to the ordinance as a stipulation of
Aid. Howard did not believe tbe ordi
nance was unconstitutional, and he could
see no reason for rescinding it. He
tnought the council should stand firmly
and solidly by it, and insist that tbe hours
of labor be established as eight hours.
Aid. Cotken had always been an eight
man, and he proposed to stand by every
law that looked to the establishment of
an eight hour law. He could not see
how it was unconstitutional or in con
flict with the laws of the state. He
thought the law should be maintained
and continued on the ordinance books of
tbe city. With all due respect lo the
city attorney, whom he regarded as one
of the best tbe city had ever had, he
could not see any reason to change bis
Mr. Haas stated that be stood before
tbe council purely on a legal basis. He
was not opposed to the eight hour law
but it is in this instance against public
policy, against the law of contracts. The
city had no right to interfere between
tbe employer and the employed, or to
impose a condition of this kind. The
city had no right to override the law of
Aid. Edwards and Scbroeder both
spoke further in favor of the repealing
Aid. Buncher said he ws in favor of
the eight hour law, but the city of Rock
Island could not exercise any power not
dedicated 10 it by tbe legislature of the
state and he thought the city should stand
by its city attorney, whose advice on
points of law should be accepted. The
aldermen should be guided in matters
such as this by tbe advice of tbe city at
torney who was elected for that purpose.

Tbe mayor stated this morning that he
would sign the repealing ordinance on
tbe grounds of the illegality of the orig
inal ordinance. He would base his action
on the opinion of the city attorney.
While the Arqub is not diBposed t-j
criticize the aldermen who changed ibeir
vote and repealed the eight hoar ordi
nance doing as they did upon the ad
vice of the city attorney, who is sup-
poaed to know tbe law, and upon whose
shoulders tbe responsibility of tbe coun
cil's action falls, it regrets that any point
has arisen that led to tbe recalling of tbe
ordinance . The Auoub is for tbe eight
hour day, and it hopes the council will
yet see ita way clear to constitutionally
The assertion that the eight-hour day
would entail additional cost to property
holders is Iscking in supporting proof,
and it is to be regretted that there are
any property holders who take advan
tage of any indefinite statutory pro
visions to defeat public improvements.
The council's first mistake was in adopt
ing the ordinance without referring it
for careful investigation as to all its

The Mayor Telearaphs rrreory
Proctor Hie Opinion of Chief of Ord
nance Benet t'aaeeralnc Our linn
In addition to the telegrams from our
presentative citizens forwarded to Wash
ington Saturday night in reply to Chief
of Ordnance Benet's remarks concerning
the foundations of the buildings at Rock
Island arsenal, and his attempt to ignore
the gun factory project. Mayor McCono
chie this morning sent the following tele
gram: Rock Island. III.. Feb. 24.
Hon. RedBeld Proctor, Secretary of War, Wash
ington, D. C. :
We are confident that Gen. Benet is
prejudiced against Rock Island arsenal.
We fully believe it is to tbe interest of
the United States government that some
of the immense buildings here be utilized
tor a gun factory, and rely upon you to
give the matter careful consideration.
We, therefore, respectfully request that
before deciding against the project you
call Col. Whittemore to Washington for
consultation or send an intelligent and
fair-minded commission hereto investi
gate and report to you.
William McConochik, Mayor.
The chief of ordnance is manifesting a
spirit of hostility toward Rock Island
arsenal that is not at all becoming his
high station. He has in the past been
disposed apparently to send an officer
here whom he had some desire to reprW
mand by sending him into a place of iso
lation and then to totally ignore him and
reflect upon every suggestion that ema
nates from the arsenal for its improve
ment . Rock Island arsenal is too im
portant to be thus served by Gen- Benet,
and people of the tri cities are becoming
weary of his conduct toward them. If he
has an ill feeling toward Col. Wbitte
more or any other army officer who is
located here, he should not manifest it
in a manuer calculate 1 to not only injure
the greatest arsenal in the world, but an
entire commucity whose justifiable pride
it is. (
It is a happy thought that Gen Benet's
retirement is to occur the coming season,
but what an advantage it would be to
have him retired just now, when he is
using the powers of his office to defeat
important army reforms in tbe gratifica
tion of personal emnity.
