Badly as the eight-hour law was
framed and consequently ban as it
would have be n in practice I yet it
was infinitely worse to perrdit Mr.
Brewer to injure it further by amendment.
Of course the amendment was oaposed.
but by whomT Did our representative
have one word to say against it? Not a
word. Did he rse in his place andvpoint
out the iniquity of such an amendment
an iniquity that would practically depWve
the men of receiving one dollar? Not h
Stolid and silent he sat and let the inter
eats of the men lie vowed to look after.
take care of thet iselves.
The damaging amendment of Mr.
"That this act shall not be operative
whenever the court Bball find that such
aborer. workman or mechanic performed
such labor or service under a contract,
express or implied, and has been "paid
tneretor the amount agreed upon.
So that although the law says already
that eight hours shall constitute a day's
work, yet if 'he man is compelled to
work ten or twelve hours a day he shall
receive no additional compensation
for it, becausd when asked to la
bor the extra hours bv his em
ployer, he wi l either have to con
sent or lose the work, and when he
consents this consent shall be construed
nlo a contrail, and he will be bound
thereby. And this whether he labors
under protest or not If he consents to
the additional hours, it will be an ex
press contract; if he remain silent it will
be an implied contract. Ia either case the
the amendment, makes it a contract, and
as a conscquerce he cannot recover for
the extra tirre. Should he protest it
will not evail, because if he works under
protest the result will be the stme.
These glaring facts were before
the eyes of Mr. Qnst, and yet
he spoke not. He might at least have
asked that tbe amendment be not al
lowed, lie might have shiwn that much
interest at least in the men he was sup
posed to represent.
This course or non-action on the part
of Mr. Qest is one of the most painful
omissions of I is whole experience in con
gress. And l is legislative sins of omis
sion are m-irjy. As one member said, the
claimants can go to Washington and
spend year in and year out, from youth to
old age, upon the faith that some respect
will be paid to the decisions of a court
instituted by the government itself, but
who go away session after session disap -pointed.
. It will be so in this case under
the new act us passed by the house. It
matters lit) le whether it ever reach the
senate or not. It matters little if it ever
pass. Belter far that it should die
where it is. It was simply a sup to Cer
berus to win favor until after the elec
And this i tbe great work that "SahN
ia, who corresponds for tbe Lnwn, would
ask the peo le to believe was a herculean
task performed by Mr. Oest in behalf of
those who desire to be benefitted by the
eight-hour law. "Sahlj" will need to
pore over the statutes a little longer and
set forth the result of his lugubrious ideas
for tbe benefit of the iieople generally.

What lo to ba Done to the Market Let

no Hpeedlly as Potnible.
Encouraged by the enthusiastic iranner
in which the public has endorsed tbe im
provement of Spencer square, which has
become a source of just pride to every
citizen in Rock Island, the council at its
Monday night session took the initiative
toward putting Market square in a more
presentable condition, and pursuant to
the action of tbe municipal body, Mayor
McConocbie has already contracted for a
new stone base and also for put-,
ting the fountain itself in running
order. Then the entire structure will
be repainted and redecorated, and a clock
placed in the cupola. The paving of the
square will doubtless follow; the old
weighmaster's quarters will give way to
something more artistic, and by next
spring the city fathers will be ready to
turn their attention to tbe lower end
The Argus knows of one citizen who
is ready to make a contribution to the
beautifying of that square, and others
will, no doubt, follow such an example.
The city has but to provide for the
grading and cross walks, as an incentive
to the people in that part of town to
provide the ornamental designs.
A NEW PARTY INCUBATING.
