It is the open boast of members of the
A. P. A. society that they control the
present mayor and council. That they
are boss of the mayor's actions does not
admit of doubt, but it is a very grave
doubt if they can manipulate the council.
The vote on Dr. Kiny on, the pet candi
date of the organization, demonstrated
that fact. The vote on the confirmation
of Dr. Efster would more clearly show
the standing of the council, and it is
a conceded fact that had Mr. Murrin been
appointed by the mayor he would have
been confirmed by a similar vote.
Sunday morning quite a good deal of
excitement was caused at the residence
of Fred Gould, in Moline. The telephone
wire had broken in the night and fell
across the trolley wire of the electric
street railway on Sixth avenue. This
played the deuce with the telephone in
Mr. Gould's bouse, burning out the
"ringing coils" of the 'phooe. The burn
ing of the coils made a noise similar to
escaping steam, and it hud the effect of
scaring the people in the bouse. Later
ne of the line men of the telephone
company located the broken wire. He
threw a rope over the live wire and
brought it to the ground. When it feil
it struck the street car track, making a
loud report and sent up a huge tbeet of
blue flame, after which it wiggled around
for a while and then settled down.
The habeas corpus proceedings in the
case of Jim Collins, the sprinter, who was
held here by the police on a warrant from
Gridley, McLain county, LI., charging
him with the larceny of $500 stake money,

cuit court this morning and the warrant
not being under seal showing that J. C.
Adams, by whom it was issued, was a po
lice magistrate or -justice of the peace,
the court released the prisoner. A war
rant charging Collins with burglary hid
also been sworn out by J. W. Jones, and

scratch" but was prevented by Deputy
Sheriff Silvia, who escorted him to Mag

there was no evidence against him and he
was discharged. A. D. Sedekum, a con
stable of McLain county, who came here
to take Collins back, will return without
his man, but stated that Collins couldn't
go so far but what be would "bring him
to tan" sometime.

It is with sincere feelings of regret that

tomorrow morning for Rock Island, which
city will be their luture home. Mr. Conv

burn (colored), on one side, and some fifty
or more strikers on the other. Two men
were fatally shot and about twelve more
wounded more or less seriously. The
fight, which was at close range was
brought about by the brickmakers'
strike which has been in progress at tbe
Divis yards for several weeks past. Yes
terday morning Davis and his son, the
proprietors of the brick yards, with eight
negroes with double barreled shot guns
loaded with buck-shot, started for the
yrds with the avowed intention of be
ginning work or dying in the attempt.
The Strikers Appear, and the Result.
As they were nearing the yards a party
of strikers, headed by Frank Surber, ap
peared aud asked that they be allowed to
t ilk to the men who were going to work.
Djivis replied that the men did not want
to talk, and ordered the strikers to allow
his men to pass. This the strikers would
not do, and Davis and his son and five
men opened tire on the strikers. Thomas
Kelly was shot in the small of the back
and died two hours later. The men most
seriously injured are: John Ridenour,
hot in the back and mortally wounded;
Frank Surber, shot in tbe right arm, ne
cessitating amputation, and may die;
Burt Brown, shot in the right arm; S.
Paal, bhot in the left shoulder; Jack Gar
ret, shot in side; W. J. Shaunte, shot in
the forehead and in shoulder; Sam Far
rar. shot in legs; Pete Nolan, shot in leg;
B. O'Brien and William Dickson, boia
shot iu head and side.

New York Lumber Dealers Declare a
Boycott on Boycotters.
New Yoke, May li The Lumber Deal
ers' association declared a general lock
out yesterday morning. Not one foot of
lumber was delivered in New York yester
day, nor will any be delivered until the
backbone of the labor union is broken,
or the dealers themselves succumb.
Eighty lumber dealers, employing 3.50C
men, comprise the Lumber Dealers' asso
ciation, and other dealers are joining
daily. This lock-out will affect probably
lo.OuO meu in this city. It was precipi
tated by the striking of the men iu tbe
shops of Bucki, Decker and Schuyler, and
the subsequent boycotting of those shops
by the labor uuiou. Iu other words, it is
boycott against boycott.
Think it is Time to Call Halt.
"The labor unions have adopted pros
cription," say the lumber dealers "and we
will do the same." The plan is to sell no
lumber to anyone who employs ujiio.i
labor, just as the unions refuse to deal
with or handle the products of those who
employ non-union labor. John D. Crim
uiins, the contracter, said that the build
ers would generally stand by the deaL.-s
in their fihc with the union. "It is time
to call a halt," said Mr. Crimmins. Until
the walking delegates raise the boy cott
on Bucki, Decker and Schuyler, the deal
ers will adopt similar tactics, so they say.
