TALKING FOR THE COLLIERS.

Mr. J. C. Tippett, a prominent labor
reform speaker, is in the city arranging to
apeak before some of the labor organiza
tions on the recent coal miners' troubles
at Kewanee and Peoria. He recently or
ganized a Miners' Protective association
at Kewanee and at Gilchrist. Last night
be visited the mines of the Coal Valley
Mining company at Cable, and he Bays he
never Baw things in better shape both as
to the way the mines are conducted and
the feeling among the colliers who are
bappy and satisfied and have no grievs
ances whatever. "We don't believe in
strikes," he Bald to an Argus reporter
this morning, "and are anxious to adjust
our difficulties and secure our rights as
far as we can by the application of rea
son and mutual concession. As I said to
the striking miners at Kewanee, we do
not organize that we may have strikes,
but to avoid them. Strikes have been our
ruin and we must settle our differences if
possible, by conciliatory, measures and
avoid a great conflict with combined
capital until we are sure we can
achieve the victory that must come
through organization. There was some
thre weeks ago a great commotion
throughout the world. A general strike
was talked of, and the advance of wages
and shorter hours was expected by most
of the laboring classes of people. Tell
me how were they to receive it. It bad
to come through organized labor, and
yet the people outside of the ranks ex
pected just as much as the parties that
WL-re inside, and to put good men in the
front to be cut down by the enemy in
this way would be ridiculous. After the
miners in the northern district fought
and suffered so much last summer fight
ing the organized Brethren Miners, the
national executive board thought over
the situation of the various districts, that
they were not in a position to conquer at
this tiuie, and a few figures will make it
plain to be seen that they took the right
In reference to the history of the United
Mine workers of America, he said this or
ganization bad made rapid progress in the
past seven or eight months. '-Before that
time we had no nuch organization; now
all the bituminous coal miners of Penn
aylvania, with the exception of Scott's
miners, have joined, and in Ohio, out of
25.000 miners 30,000 have joined, and in
Indiana out of 7,000, 5,000 have joined
the U. M. W. of A. They have received
the advance of wages as fast as thev be
come united, since they have combined for
business. Pennsylvania hss advanced
the price for mining 20 per cent in the
last seven months. Ohio, 10; Indiana,
from 2J to 10. Virginia and Kentucky
were notified some time ago that they
must reduce the price of mining or else
they mustclose their mines, hut they iai
mediately organized and received from 5
to 10 per cent of an advance in wages.
But it appears that Illinois was obliged
to continue for a time under a provisional
agreement adopted at a joint convention
at Chicago. To make a long story short,
the meaning of it is organize your miners
and then more pay."

At the conclusion of the case of the
U. B. vs. the M. E. church, of Moline. in
the circuit court. Judge Smith instructed
the jury to find a verdict for the plaintiff.
the United Brethren. This suit was one
of plain ejectment to force the First M.
E. church of Moline to give up
possession of the church property in
Stewartville. The trouble had its orig
ination in this wise: The trustees of the
U. B. church negotiated a loan of $400
from S. A. Samuelson, an employe of the
Moline Wagon Co., and as security gave
him a mortgage on the church property.
Failing to get his loan back when due,
Samuelson foreclosed the mortgage. The
time for redemption going by without
any action by the U. B. trustees to li
quidate the debt, Mr. Samuelson sup
posed himself to be the owner, and
through W. A. Meese transferred the
property to the First M. E. church for
$825, and received cash to that amount.
Now come the U. B. trustees Phin
Heck, Jos. Heck. Adam Fries and J. W.
Dewrose and claim that they were
wrong in executing the said mortgage to
the said mortgagee in securing the loan;
that they bed no right to do 'bo without
the concurrence of a msjority of the
members of the church. Ia this position
they are sustained by the court as a mat
ter of law. The First M. E. church will
now demand the return of the $8:25 paid
Samuelson, since the property is to be va
cated, and not used anyway. Sam
uelson being a poor roan, will be
the greatest sufferer, as it is stated
that the $400 loan mafle by the U.
B. trustees hn been outlawed by the
statute of limitation, but it will probably
be settled by the courts in a new fore
The jury in the appeal case of Frank
Bowman vs. W. L. Covne, returned a
verdict for the plaintiff this morning for

Ills Order Was for Six Testimonials and
That's What Ha Wanted.
An old sergeant belonging to the col
ored troops stationed at Fort Bryan,
N. M.,"and who is detailed as head
gardener, was directed to-furnish the
quartermaster with a list of garden tools
wanted for the coming season. On the
following day the list was handed in and
taken up by the quartermaster, who was
somewhat pnzzled over an item of "six
testimonials." Never having heard of
such a tool the old sergeant was sent for
to explain. Pointing to the item, the
quartermaster asked what it was.
"Dem am testimonials," the serjroant
"But there is no snch tool," the quar
"Oh, yes," replied the sergeant. "Pat's
de namo what de catalogue speeerties."
"Bring me the catalogue."
A few moments later the sergeant re
turned, a big twinkle of satisfaction
lighting np his coal black countenance.
With a step fnll of confidence ho walked
np to the quartermaster's desk; opened
the catalogue, placed Iris finger on the
illustration of the tool in question and
said: "Da's de tool," and turning over to
the next page, "da's de name testi
The quartermaster "caught on." The
illustration represented a newly patented
weed her, and immediately following,
on the opposite lage, came several testi
monials as to its usefulness, etc. ; the word
testimonial, heading each paragraph, be
ing in large type, which the sergeant
naturally concluded was the name of the
tool illustrated on the other pago.
Of course the quartermaster, being con
vinced, informed the sergeant that he
should have the testimonials, and the old
man departed highly pleased with him
self and his knowledge of garden tool.
