rHE SOLDIER DEAD.
This is Memorial day, an occasion
when many touching and sacred remin
ders are recalled. Perhaps none are im
bued with a tenderer sentiment than this
extract from an oration by Hen. Cbaun
cey M. Depew: "When the war was
over, in the south, where, under warmer
skies and with more poetic tempera
ment a, symbols and emblems are better
understood than in the practical north,
the widows, mothers and children of the
confederate dead went out and strewed
their graves with flowers; at many places
the women scattered them impartially
also over the unknown and unmarked
resting places of the union soldiers. As
the news of this touching tribute flashed
over the north, it roused, as nothing else
could have done, national amity and
love, and allayed sectional animosity and
passion. It thrilled every household
where there was a vacant chair bv the
resile, and an aching void in heart for
Ion hero whose remains had never
been found; old wounds broke out
afresh, and in a mingled tempest of
grief and joy, the family cried: 'Maybe,
wis our darling!' Thus out of sor
rows common alike to the north and
south came this beautiful custom. But
Memorial day no longer belongs to those
who mourn. It is the common privilege
of us all, and will be celebrated as long
as grtlitude exists and flowers bloom
A more beautiful Memorial day has not
been witnessed in Rock Island since the
ntro duction of the solemn and patriotic
custcm. Buford post and the various

One hundred carpenters employed on
various buildings in Rock Island will go
a strike Monday, the Carpenters'
Union having inaugurated a strike for
the nine hour day. Contractors Guthrie
and Schreiner will lose all their men,
while the others are scattered among the
various contractors and builders. There
are about twenty-five nonsunion men in
The Carpenters' Union of Rock Island
has submitted the following as sustaining
the stand taken by the men:
Editor of the Abucs:
Kock Island, May 30. W e would like
the following published for the benefit of
the carpenters of Rock Island, as we are
forced to strike for what we believe to
be a just demand. As a rule the people
are inclined to condemn strikers and ac
cuse them of being unjust, and demand-
ng something unreasonable; so we think
it best for the people of Rock Island to
know what the carpenters are striking
for, that we may not be unjustly ac
cused by citizens. - In all the cities where
the carpenters have been or are now on
the strike are demanding eight hours for
a day's work and an increase of pay, but
the carpenters of Rock Island think this
is asking too much at tnis time, and conc
luded to go htlf way, and demand of
the contractor nine hours for a day's
work, the pay to be the same as received
or ten, as the pay of carpenters in this
vicinity is lowenough 20 to 22 cent
per hour. This is from 10 to 15
per cent less than carpenters are getting
in Chicago and other cities, the pay be
ing 35 cents per hour, and eight hours for
a day 8 work, being 2 80 a day, 5. cents
more a day than we receive anil working
wo hours more. If our demands are
conceded to, it will bring us below the
carpenters of Chicago 55 cents and one
hour a day more. A majority of the con
tractors are willing to concede, a few arc
not, claiming to have taken contracts on
the basis of ten hours for a day's work.
This is their own fault as the carpenters
of this city gave them notice on the first
of April that on the first of June, 1890.
we would demand nine hours for a day 'a
work and the same pay received tor ten
hours. The most of these contracts have
been taken since that time.

At about fifteen minutes before 1 o'clock
this morning fire was discovered in the
Germania house on Second street near
Harrison- A general alarm was turned
in, calling the entire department. When
the firemen reached the place smoke was
issuing from all the windows of the hotel
and all the people were huddled together
in the balls in vaiious stages dishabille
and frightened almost to death, being un
able to get down stairs on account of the
thick heavy smoke. As soon as the
ladders were raised people commenced
coming out through the windows, crowd
ing each other in their endeavors to reach
place of safety. It was some little time
before the firemen could locate the fire ex
actly, but as it appeared to be in the
kitchen of the hotel, they directed their ef
forts in that direction and with good effect
and in a short time all danger was passed.
After looking around to ascertain just
where the fire started, an old dumb
waiter, running from Buck's implement
store, to the kitchen of the Germania
house, was discovered and the indications
were that the fire broke out in or near

Mr. Charlts H. Deere, of Moline, is

appropriations for the arsenal at Rock

some years ago, it was intended to lc the
argest and finest in the world, but of
ate years only a small amount of money
has annually been appropriated, and the
attention of congress has been directed to
the other arsenals at Springfield and

year, and that is just enough to keep
things going. The Illinois delegation
have not shown much interest in this in

the Massachusetts delegation in Springs
