Interest of their children, and use Castoria in

merits of Castoria has won us to look with

THE LABOR CONGRESS.
Its Regular Monthly Meeting Yes
Preparations Belns Made for the La
bor ly Observance A Rrqsest
to Stove Oealrrs Adoption
of a Deelartloa.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Tri-City Labor Congress was held at
Hillier's hall yesterday afternoon, and
was well attended. Reports on the pro
gress of the Labor day committees were
heard, which were of a very encouraging
nature. The labor organizations of
Davenport will come over in a body with
their own music. The event has been
well advertised throughout the sur
ronnding country, and promises to be a
A resolution 'was adopted asking
dealers not to handle any goods from
the Eclipse Stove works of Mansfield
Ohio, which is having trouble with or
ganized labor. It was also decided to
offer a handsome gavel to the organiza
tion presenting the best appearance on
Labor day. After transacting other
business of minor importance, the fol
lowing declaration was sdopted:
Rock Island, 111.. Aug. 13. The
Rock Islander has seen fit to assail this
Congress collectively and individually. It
has villi tied the Congress as a whole and
its members as private parties. It has
imputed to this congress and its mem
bers motives of which they ntver
dreamed. It has striven to make po
litical capital of a matter which was
never intended as such, and whjT Be-,
cause this Congress saw fit to declare
that on account of changes made in the
policy of the Rock Islander, it was no
loDger the official organ of Congress.
Of the personal villification of mem
bers of the Congress we will have only
this to say: As men, in all that the
word implies, they are as far superior to
a person who could pen such an article
as the Rock Islander's, as night is to the
The members of the Congress are
charged with being walking delegates,
socialists, anarchists, etc.; in fad, al
most everything except direct assistants
to his satanic magesty. This style of
argument is always adopted by oppo
nents of the labor movement, and
betokens one of two things
the person making the statements is
either very sparing in the use of tbe truth,
or else does not know what he is talking
about. But let us be charitable and as
sign the latter cause to this outbreak.
To look at the matter from a political
standpoint, this Congress has been, is.
and always will be a non-political body,
and composed of members of all political
parties. Politics are never discussed
during its sessions. Therefore, when tbe
Rock Islander changed its course
and became a party paper, the
Congress could not consistently
allow it to remain the official organ.
There was no desire whatever to injure
the Kock Islander. The Congress simply
did not wish to have a partisan paper as
its efflcial organ. If no one supported
the Rock Islander because it was our
official organ, no harm ws
done it. If it did receive support on
that account it should not expect to hold
it after deserting the labor movement
by labor movement is not meant the
people's party, although the Rock Is!
ander tried hard to make it appear that
such was the meaning of the resolution.
It would not be out of place to say
here that we have assurances from Col.
Danfortb that he sold the Rock Islunder
with the understanding that its policy
was to be unchanged. To sum the
whole matter up, the resolutions were
passed because this Congress did not de
sire to have the organ of any political
party as its official organ. The resolu
tion passed unanimously, oeing voted
for by men of all shades of political be
lief. We deny emphatically that this
Congress has ever attacked religion.
The Labor day committee has engaged
T. J. Morgan of Chicago as chief of the
day. A number of manufacturers and
business men of the Twin Cities have
signified a desins to participate in the
parade. A memorial prize will be given
to tbe best appearing organization in
the parade. All manufacturers and
others desiring to prepare floats for tbe
parade are requested to send their names
to J. W. Cavanaugh, Rock Island.
The Itarnum and Ualley Mhowi.
For the 10 or a dozen years just pre
ceding the death of P. T. Barnum he
had really taken no active part in the
management of the great institution with
which bis life had been so closely identi
fied. Everyone knew this, or should have
known it. Mr. Barnum never claimed
to be a circus man, but he did claim to
be a showman. During the latter partof
bis life the Greatest Show on Earth was
managed by his equal partner, J. A. Bai
ley, and the wonderful versatility of the
latter gentleman was best shown in the
tremendous novelties and innovations he
introduced into the business, in many in
stances even going so far as to amaze
and surprise Mr. Barnum himself by their
ingenious worth and amusing instruction.
Every detail connected with the vast in
stitution was and is still personally di
rected by Mr. Bailey, and every feature
or attraction, small or large, was de
signed, selected or invented by him, but,
of course, the name of Barnum, its big
ness in the show world, its wide celebrity
and universal character, necessarily ab
sorbed and covered everything connected
with the show. What matters it if Bai
ley designed and Barnum profited so
long as the public benefited.

Thursday afternoon Everett Miller,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver W. Miller, of
Camanche, was drowned in the Miss
issippi. With two other boys named
Slaughter and Dannatt, be was playing
on a raft which they bad constructed of
some stray boards. Tbe raft broke away
from tbe shore and smarted down the
river. Miller became frightened at the
prospect of being swept away from home
in this manner, and leaped into the
river. He immediately sank and did
not reappear. Soon after this tbe other
lads followed him, but they were res
cued by men with a skiff who had started
to the aid of Miller, having observed bis
plunge. The drowiied lad was 11 years
of age. A reward of $25 will be paid
for the recovery of his boCy.
"The Ensign," which is to be givea at
the Burlis opera house, Davenport, on
Wednesday evening of this week, is one
of tbe genuine novelties of tbe season.
It comes to this city with an enthusiastic
endorsement from Boston, Chicago, Pnil
delphia and other cities. It has tbe ad
vantage of having no rivals in the the
atrical field. A naval drama, with man-of-war
spectacular effects, ought to make
a hit now. if at anytime. There is a
live public interest iust now in our naval
affairs, and the general ignorance on tbe
subj ;ct of man-of-war life is surd to
mete a production cf this kind attrac
tive to many. The scenery of "Tne En
sien" is Slid to be magnificent. Real
ism has been observed very closely, and
the gun deck of the old Kearsarge is
vividly produced in every detail. This
was accomplished through actual pho
tography and studies in water colois
made on shipboard expressly for tbe
purpose. Groups of our naval officers
and seamen were also takeu.
