THE ; ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, 1 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9. 1890.
THAT BILL AGAIN.
What, the Representative of the
Federation of Labor Thinks.
Claim ttJIr. Went Look Very Mirk
ad Hilly Indeed, m They Ie
perwe. The other day writer in the Union,
who signed himself a "Republican," made
a strong effort to prove that the Brewer
amendment to the eighthour bill did not
in any way affect it, and that, 'consequent
ly, Mr. Qest should receive the warmest
approval of everybody interested. Of
course, it was shown the same day in
these columns that the position taken was
a false one.
The Washington correspondent or the
Chicago Herald states that II. J. Schul
ters, of the federation of labor, saya the
labor bills seemed fair enough on their
face, but were amended to death before
the republicans would permit them to
pass. Mr. Schulters says: "The Cutch
eon amendment, by striking out the
words 'or permit,' legalizes any number
of honrs per day, instead of enforcing
eight hours as a day's labor on govern
ment work,' thus nullifying the present
eight-hour and a!so the alien contract
law. By inserting the word "knowingly,
that act is made nugatory, utterly pre
venting iis enforcement by the treasury
officials. The Brewer amendment of the
bill, providing for the adjustment of ac
counts of laborers, workman and mechan
ics arising under the cighthour law, un
der which no man can eyer recover a
dollar for work done in excess of eight
hours, though such work was under pro
test of compulsion and in violation of ex
isting law. The words 'or implied' in the
Brewer amendment make this act null
and void. To recapitulate, the eight-hour
law as amended by the house of repre
sentatives is not an eight-hour law.
Second, the alien contract labor law as
amended does not prohibit the importa
tion of aliens under contract. Third, the
eight-hour back-pay bill as amended does
not give back pay to anybody. The in
telligence of the American workingman
has not been 'sized up' correctly by the
speaker and his committee on rules in
their eleventh hour effort. It is too late
in the session to have it corrected by the
senate, and it is sure to prove a big bun
And yet Mr. G-st is posing as a cnam
pion of the workingmen and their friend
in the eight hour law and other matters.
When Mr. Reed went to Maine the other
day to induce the people down there to
reelect him he told what great good the
republican party had recently ac
complished for the nation, and in his
speech at Portland he spoke of the
passage of labor bills with "appro
priate amendments." These amendments
were enquired into by Mr. Reed's oppon
ent, Mr. Frank, and Mr. Amos J. Cum
minga, the newspaper correspondent, and
congressman from New York, telegraph
ed to Mr. FraLk as follows:
The labor bills passed by the house are
amended so as to make them nugatory.
No man can recover a dollar under the j
eight-hour back pay bill, as amended by
Brewer, of Michigan, a republican. The
eight-hour law permits any number of
hours for government employes as
amended by Cutcheon, republican, of
Michigan. The alien contract labor bill
does not prohibit the importation of
aliens under this bill as amended by Pays
son, republican, of Illinois. Mr. Reed
called these "appropriate amendments'
in his speech, thus insulting the intelli
gence of American workingmen by false
Is there anything that Mr. Oest has
done that will bear investigation and
show him to be the hardworking, intelli
gent congressman that he is sometimes
represented to be?
That "all's well that ends well," was in
a way exemplified in the happy, though
romantic culminating chapter in the po
lice court case of Annie Settle vs John
M. Volk, last evening. As stated in the
Arous of last evening, Annie had John
arrested on a serious charge, and the only
remedy at law by which John could es
cape the penalty was to wed his
fair accuser. It was this predicament
that brought to his rescue Mrs. Mathias
Paulson, a pretty and quite weli off wid
ow, from South Rock Island, who loved
John out of the abundance of her heart.
Money was nothing to her when
weighed in the scale with her affecs
tionate devotion, and a few hundred
was sufficient to secure the dismissal of
the case against her adored, and last
night Magistrate Wivill officiated in the
ceremony that linked John M. Volk and
Mrs. Mathias Paulson in life's happiest

Yes, I thought I had become famous by

poetry that appeared in the Union the
other day, but now, do you know, that

It is at once a gratifying and an un
happy fact that there are no vacant
houses in Rock Island. Gratifying be
cause it demonstrates how well the city
is appreciated as a resident city, and un
happy because we have no accommoda
tions for the constant influx in our popu
lation. It Is a condition often commented
on by the Argus that Rock Island is
totally without that style of a tenement
bouse for which there is a popular de
mand a house that will command an
average rent. The consequence is that
many families rightfully belonging in
Rock Island, have been the cause of the
taking down of several "for rent" signs
in Davenport. Indeed it is estimated
that no less than twenty-five families
who properly belong iu this city are
now comfortably domiciled on the Iowa
side of the river. The Argus knows of
a number of cases where diligent search
was made for months for suitable houses
here and finally the only recourse has been
accepted.of locating in Divcnport. It is
only necessary to cite a couple of suah
cases: One is that of Mr. . Bundicbub,
proprietor of the Arcade cigar store on
Second avenue, who came here from Ne
braska four months ago in advance of his
family to establish his business and se
cure a house. He got bis business going
all right, but could not And what was
more important a home. A few weeks
ago his family arrived. He bad searched
iu vain for a desirable bouse and after re
maining at the hotel some time was
obliged to go to Davenport, where he
found just what be wanted. Mr. Win.
Blancbard. one of our oldest citizens, af
fords another illustration of the ex
isting state of affairs as to tene
ment houses. After living in the sub
urbs during the summer he has
moved to Davenport for his winter home,
An Arous representative asked him the
reason yesterday. Ilia reply war: "Why
bless you, I could find no house in Rock
Island. I don't feel at all at home in
Davenport, but that was all in the world
I could do."
What shall Rock Island do in the face
of these facts? Certainly something must
done if the city would retain all its own
people. The subject is a good one for
our Improvement association to grapple
witb. There Is a broad field in Rock Is
land for the operations of a syndicate
formed for the purpose of erecting houses
such as will command from $12 to $20

The Royal Baking Powder will make sweeter, lighter, finer-flavored

"As the result of my tests I find the Royal
Baking Powder superior to all the others in every
respect. It is entirely free frorn all adulteration
and unwholesome impurity, and in baking it
gives off a greater volume of leavening gas than
any other powder. It is therefore not only the
purest but also the strongest powder with which
I am acquainted. -
