Strike is Ended.
NO CONDITIONS OF SETTLEMENT.
A Meeting Held In Chicago Yesterday
Afternoon, at Which the Str ke In All
Its FHascs Was Dhcoued-Thn Decision
Klnnlly Reached Off at 10 O'clotkThls
Morn In ft Past Grand Chief Thurston the
A' i meeting of the advisory commit
tee of the Order of Railway Telegraphers
btld esterday afternoon in Chicago
after a long discussion it was
finally decided to declare the
Rjck Island strike off, and today at
10 o'clock btiog the hour. Accordingly
a'l operators along the lines of the road
who can get back are now at liberty to
am-pi positions with the company.
Torre are no conditions wha'ever te the
settl rufnt, the officials of the order
si nply having a meeting and diciding to
abandon the strike.
Knormous Expense to the Order.
The fight has been carried on at an
enormous expense to the order and there
being no immediate prospect of a settle
ment, it was thought best not to continne
it toy longer. It is understood that
what men are not taken back by the com
pany, the O. R. T. will mate arrange
ments to provide with places us fast ss
possible. No bans of any k nd are an
nounced against the road and the pre
sumption is that there will be no furttir
trouble between the order and the road.
Will it Affect the O. R T?
Past Grand Chief Thurston, of the or
der, is said to have been one cf the mov
ing sp:rits in the calling off of the strike
and it is also iatimated thi.t he was
against it from tie start. In his opinion
it was not the proper time t3 order out
the men. He claims, howey r, that the
result of this strike w ill not work injury
to the order and that it will lets strong
as tyer. He estimates that tiie percent
ago of operators who Lave gf.ne back on
the ordr is very small and will not tffdet
i'. mat ria'ly . The fact that it has been
declared off Kill probably no. rutke any
chp.ngs in the offices here.

ADAMS AND AMERICAN.
The Change in Kxpress Companies on the
According to the change ia express
companies on the Burlington system
wtich went into tffect with the advent of
the New Year, the Adams Express com
pany will occupy all the C'licago. Buri
lingtn & Qjincy system, displacing the
American Express company east of the
Missouri riyer atd the Wells Fargo com
pany west of the river. The change was
made by ibe Burlington officials because
both th-s? companies d the busioeas of
parallel and competing lines. The direc
tors believed it was for the best interest
of the road to have its lines occupied by
an express, company cot having cer.flicl
irjg or competing interests. They there
fore entered into a contract with the
Adams company, which is only on one
other road the St. Paul. The Burling
ton 1)88 never bad a large share of the
express business in the west and it wants
to see if it cannot work up as large a one
as any of its competitors
The American Express company issued
a letter to its employees on the Q. route,
Tee names of many of you have been
upon our records for so many years that
they have become as familiar as house
bold words and we are yery sorry that
necessity compels us to erase them from
our pay rolls. We fully appreciate the
goodly service that you haye rendered us,
and feel that the high standing whirh this
company has attained with the business
community on the lines of the C, B. &
Q R. R is very largely due to jour in
dividual efforts. In withdrawing from
the Burlington lines, we especially regret
that it tikvs from us a class of men who
have so fully demonstrated their efficien
cy, integrity and loyalty. We found it
impossible to provide places elsewhere
for so mxny, and decided that it was for
the best interests of all concerned to ar
range with our successors, the Adams
Express company, to retain you in your
present positions and at your present

The Supervisors Convention at
THE JOURNEY IE0M E0CK ISLAND,
The Opening Meeting- and the Proceed
ings Officers or the Convention Inter,
esting Letter From a Member of the
Rock Island County Beard Who is on
Champaign, Jan. 2. On our way to
Champaign to attend the state convention
of supervisors in this city we were in the
crowd of holiday excursionists students
returning to their Uudies and leg'slators
on their way to Sprinefield to be in time
to help organize the Thirty-eighth general
assembly. Senator Crawford and Repre
sentatiye Mulligan were on board and
each seemed very much impressed with
the duties they were about to assume.
At Bloomington we might have seen the
gang from Cok county, but our train
seemed to be in a hurry when we crossed
the Alton and we were not allowed even
a glimpse of the Cook county contingen
cy. The Convention Called to Order.
The convention was called to order at
3 o'clock by President Miller, of St.
Clair county, who introductd Mr. Rb
inson, chairman of the Champaign county
board; who delivered an excellent addrefs
of welcome, assuring the gentlemen
preseut that they were welcomed not only
by the county board but by the citizens
of the who'e county.
In response President Miller made a
happy littlcspeecb in which he assured the
g nt'.emen of the Champaign c.iunty board
that wt; ere ready and willing to be en
tertained. Mr. Miller in his response, . s
well as Mr. Robinson in his address f
welcome, made a happy bit on the recent
upheaval of state politics which from the
applause in consequence showed a good
sprinklingof democrats present acd cotr.-
ini from two pronounced republicansmi e
it the more funny for the opposition
Mr. Miller in referring to the intelligence
of the American people said that some
folks since elecion were very much od
posed to the Australian ballot system.
Mr. Robinson related that just a few days
ago he made the remark to a gentleman
from another state that there was no
state like Illinois. The gentleman an
swered that there were several states like
it last Jioyemrer.
The committee on credentials was ap
pointed by selecting ore from each con
gressional district, a committee on per
manent org iniz-ition appointed in the
same manner. The committre on cre
dentials repon shows a good repreen
taiion irom most of the counties
throughout the state.
The committee on permanent organizt
lion reported in favor of the following
ptrmanent officers of the convention:
P.esident J. R. Miller, of St. Ciair
Vice President S. B. Ball, of Cbarn
Secretary E. W. Mudge. of Maiison
Assistant Secretary T. E Cav,naugh,
Ot IJeoria county.
Alter short hdlrefsjs from the officers
elect, the convention adjourned until the
COLD WAVE COMING.
WUlbe Down to 16 to 20 Below by Tomor
That was a genuine old timer, a north
wester with a venae ance that struck us
broadside early this morning. As the
day broke, however, the wind lost its
terror and subsided, and the weather
though still keen became more bearable,
while the wise acre went off into a cor
ner to museover his open winter proph
esy. The borees of last night, however
seems to have chilled the atmosphere in
dead earnest and the signal service has
advices of a desline to 16 to 20 belo
zero by tomorrow morning. In other
words a decided cold wave is coming.
