Members of Trio Lodge Honor Capt.
H. C. Cleaveland.
Remembering; hint ob the Twenty-
fifth Anniversary of his Entry Into
the aiaannte Fraternity.
Last night witnessed the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the entry of Capt. II. C.
Cleaveland into the order of Masonry.
Probably no member of tbe fraternity in
Rock Island has done 60 much for its up
building and advancement as has Capt.
Cleaveland. Not only has Trio lodge
57 of which he became a member 25
years ago reaped the advantages of his
painstaking endeavor in behalf of the or
der, but Rock Island lodge has likewise
been promoted as a lodge through bis work.
And while Capt. Cleaveland has risen to
tbe highest ranks of this noble order and
received tbe highest honors that the tem
pie of knighthood confers, he has not
been unmindful of the welfare of the
lodges where the foundations are laid for
the higher degrees of advancement in the
Being aware of the important anniver
sary in her husband's life Mrs. Cleaveland
had planned a" surprise for him by extend
ing an invitation to the members of Trio
lodge to call during the absence of Capt
Cleaveland at the meeting of Everts com
manderv, the plan being to give him a
reception on his return. On receiving
the invitation from Mrs. Cleaveland, the
lodge determined to have a part in the
surprise of its own and arrangements were
made accordingly. Bo that when Capt.
Cleaveland returned from the Knights
Templar meeting he found not only his
home, Ai3 Twentieth street, completely
in tbe possession of Trio lodge and sev
eral from Rock Island lodge, but that tbe
Mason9 had come prepared to show their
estimation and affection for him in other
way9aswell. For. in due time J. M.
Buford on behalf of Trio lodge and in
choice words presented Capt. Cleaveland
with an elegant desk for his library, and
George F. Kramer, worshipful master of
the lodge, presented a life honorary mem
bership. The recipient was taken com
pletely by surprise, but found language
to respond most befittingly.
In the meantime Mrs. Cleaveland, witb
the assistance of her sister, Mrs. L. M.
Copp, Mrs. Dr. Kinyon and Mrs. J. J.
Reimers, had prepared refreshments and
after all had shown their abundant
appreciation of this part of the pro
gramme, short speeches were made
complimentary to Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
Cleaveland and tbe ladies present who as
sisted in tbe evening's entertainment, by
Wm. Jackson. Henry Burgower, E E.

Hampton as a Oalnr.
While the Union is busily engaged
booming A. H. Hampton for collector and
representing him as tbe likely nominee,
the probabilities are that when the repub
lican city convention is held it will be
found that Hampton "isn't in it," and has
not Deen from the start, but that his
name has been used as a guise, and that
while W. T."Sugden, the other aspirant
for the office, has apparently been
dropped by all save a precious few, that
in reality Hampton is only being worktd
as a blind. That the real candidate of
the bosses, is being held in reserve to
spring at the last moment, and who is none
other by the way, than W. J. Gamble,
the former superintendent of the Moline
and Rock Island railway and late pro
prietor of the Fourth avenue hotel. Tbe
bosses have attempted to clothe Gamble's
candidacy in secrecy and are quietly
looking to him as a great trump card if
played at the opportune moment, but un
fortunately that wonderful hand has been
exposed, and hence this announcement
which it is hoped is not too premature.
linn eh Counter.
G . W. Masury heretofore in charge of
the lunch counter at the C. R. I. & P.,
depot has rented the room formerly ac
cupied aB Timberlake's lunch counter and
will embark in the business on his own
account. Mr. Masury, who is a polite and
affable gentleman has had a number of
years experience in the business and will
no doubt be very successful. The lunch
counter at the C. R. I . & P., depot will
hereafter be in charge of Miss Hattie
Gove of Monmouth.

counters for tbe Railroad News company

THE JOB PRINTERS' STRIKE.
The Treubie la Hallne (Between Pah-
lkaher and Their Ilea.
The Molina Dispatch describes the
strike io progress in that city between
publishers of job work and their printers.
After alk ding to the advance granted by
the newspapers to their men, it says:
The job and book printers have not
been so f ortunate as to come to any mu
tual agreement. The employes in these
offices ask for a minimum week rate of
$13 50, and for 30 cents per thousand
ems. This the Western Plowman Pub
lishing ccmpany has refused to grant, and
its five ccmoositors "went out" this morn
ing. Mr. J. H. Porter has been con
fined to bis house by illness for a few
days. At present there is but one hand
in his office whom the asked-for scale
affects. Miss Sadie Newton, and she de
cided this morning to remain at work till
the could confer with Mr. Porter.
Usually tbe same rate is paid for what
is known as book-composition done in the
daytime is is paid for morning newspaper
work done at night. This is because
book -con position requires extra care in
spacing. The wotk at the Plowman
Publishin i company's is mostly for college
and other monthly papers. The spacing
required is a little better than that which
daily newspaper printers usually do, yet
not so goxl as is required in ooox-work.
Therefore the printers decided t ask for
it a rate of 30 cents, which is between the
usual boo i rate and the present rate on
We understand, however, that the
greatest d fference between employer and
employe i:i on the rate for day work.
Heretofore it has been f 12 per week in
Moline job offices, with extra wages to
especially competent wort men. The de
mand now is that the lowest wages shall
be $13 50 per week, which is not as much
as printers on evening papers are earning
Of the fve men who quit the Plowman
office this morning one was getting $15
per week. He is not asking for increased
pay for himself, but for the new scale for
bis fellows. The typographical union is
going to look after its striking men, pay
ing them f 5 a week for tiire lost, and an
arrangement having been made whereby
the printers who are employed shall put
on substitutes at least one day each week
This wculd give the striking men each
three days' work each week, which with
tbe $5 aid, would see them pretty com

The ann lal "May festival," under the
management of the ladies of the First
Methodist church, will be held in the
rink, commencing Monday. May 4, and
continuing through the week. For several
months the Ladies' Sewing society has
been earnestly at work planing for this
festival, aid it is their intention to spare
no pains it. making it an attractive and
enjovable time. Provisions are being
made for entertainments each afternoon
and evening that will equal, it is though',
anything hitherto giyen in these May fes

several booths where there will be dis
played the handiwork of tbe Ladies
Sewing society and many contributions
from friends outside of the Methodist
church. Meals will be served at a reas
onable price every day and refreshments
p-ovided for each evening.

ing to Pastor Gae and consenting to be
married at the time and place mentioned
above, will be presented wiih a fine bed
room set as soon as the ceremony is over,
Special donations and tbe various 12a-
tures of the fair will be mentioned from
time to time as the work of preparation
progresses. The Ladies' Sewing society
assisted by many friends and patrons out
side of the church have made and paid
large subscriptions on the church, with
out which it would have been almost inv
possible to have undertaken and com
pleted the task of building their fine
structure that is an ornament to our city
This enterprise had its origin in this
ladies' socie.y, and they are now working
to pay off their last subscription to the
same. Will the friends in and out of the
city do their best to help tbe ladies finish
what they hive so nobly begun and so
successfully carried forward?

Fred Hast this afternoon received the
following gratifying message from Oliver

mission to Washington and that all ob
