7 he Davenport city council held a spe

proposition of Edwards & Walsh to for
feit tbe contract for paving recently
awarded that firm, and tbe council re
jected all bids and advertised for new
one for the work, tbe forfeit bond being
increased from $500 to $2,000. Edwards
& Walsh bid on the work with the under
standing that on No. 3 quality of brick was
required by the specifications for the un
der course of brick, and they further no
tified the council "We did not know that
on Brady and Ninth streets nine inches of
macadam would be required and supposed
it was only six inches. Now finding our
error or misunderstanding we decline to
execi te tbe contracts for paving under
our bids of March 2, 1892, preferring
rather to forfeit to the city our $ 500
check put up."
TWO SIDES OF LABOR.
The 1 Jright and the Dark Side of the
Kfv. JK. W. JHerrell'a Nermti at thr
ft irt 91. E. Church Monday
Sleht Outline ot the
The theme discussed by Rev. F. W
Merrel: as announced at the F.rst Metho
dist Episcopal church Sunday evening
was ' Labor Organiz itions The Bright
and Dark Side." The ttxt was Judges
"Knit Together asOnoMau."
The speaker began by stating that the
conflict between labor and capital was
no new question in tbe world's history,
but was referred to by James and others
of the founders of the church in tbe
clearest terms. A student of history can
alone understand tbe rugged path up
which tie working ram has traveled on
the way to better social conditions. This
way is well illustrated in Mark Twain's
recent work, "A Yankee in King Arthur's
Court." The French revolution was tbe
direct outcome of tbe upward struggle of
the so-called lower classes of society.
The ninttenth century has been justly
denominated "the age of the working
man." T here have been three epochs in
the upwa d march of tbe working classes
slavery, serfdom and employment for
wages. A fourth epoch is just at hand,
namely, joint proprietorship or profit
sharing, v. hen every man will have a per
sonal interest in doing his best and in
advancing the general interests ef the
corporation or company where his
labor in expended. The history of
the progress of the workingman was
dwelt upon from the days when hours
and wages were fixed by laws compelling
the laborer to work from 5 in tbe morn
ing to 7 and 8 at night under penalty of
being bran led or imprisoned or sold into
slavery for attempting to evade the law.
down to tha present condition of things.
Some woul 1 call the olden times "good
old times." They were manifestly not
very good times for the laborer. They
would do vary well for the rich and the
nobility, but" were even dangerous for
them. Every man mist rejoice in tbe
progress of society in its prevent condi
tion tn free America and history points
to better th ngs still.
How bas this advance been made?
Primarily, be held, through the gospel of
tbe Carpenter of Nazareth that has
taught the necessity of love to God and
man. Where the gospel has gone these
conditions have changed for the better;
where it has not gone the old systems yet
prevail. Christ taught a pure, true so
cialism, and the world is tending in that
direction as rapidly as is well for human
ity. Labor organizations were exhibited
as one step in the upward trend of the
laborer. Th ;y have come in response to
a demand of the times. Capital is or
ganized. Labor must also organize to
meet it. Theie is a bright or
a dark side to the question. It
is nat well to disguise either; but an al
lowance was certainly te be made for men
whose wives and children were crying for
bread. It wuld be impossible to vindi
cate many ex messes in times of strikes
and uprisings. But these things must
needs come but woe to him to whom
In conclusion Mr. Merrell said, "on
the whole labor organizations are to be
commended for securing needed legisla
tion and for the educational and social
uplifting of tbe working man. But it is
Used in Millions of Homes 40 Yean the Standard.
to be remembered that this is not the ulti
mate result or state ot things to be de
sired. The interests of capital and labor
are in reality identical and so the problem
must be worked out. The present is the
stage of upward pressure and struggle
toward the better. That ia sure to come
because it is connected with the ultimate
triumph ot Christ on earth. Every
workingman should recognize that to
Christ he owes his present good as com
pared with past evils, and every working
man in America should thank God night
and morning at the family altar for Jesus
of Nazareth and for birth in America.''
