The Tri-City Labor congress met
in regular session in Hillier's hall
yesterday afternoon, with President
Lindley presiding. Secretary Emil
Ziegler gave a reading on the "Pres
ent Situation and Future Outlook,"
in which selfishness and ignorance
were characterized as the stumbling
block that would frustrate human
plans for the betterment of the pro
ducing classes. Until these evils are
rectified the millenium cannot be
hoped for. The paper frought forth
some spirited discussion, in which
remarks were vouchsafed by Messrs.
Kramer, Hathaway and others.
Mr. Uindler gave a verbal report of
the special meeting at Wigger's thea

holiday in celebration of the event,
'1 he survev and plat of what is
now known as the old or original

The survev was made by P. H.
Ogilvie for Messrs. J. W. Spencer.
David H. Sears, Charles W. Atkin
son, C. Lvnde. II. and Joel Wells,
and Nathan W. liass. The document
bore the date above named and was
acknowleded before Nathaniel Iiel-

tified that the following named per
sons appeared before him and ac
knowledged the plat: David li.
Sears. Spencer H. White, Hunting

This document gave the name Mo
line to the ground thus platted and
recorded. J here were only about
half a dozen houses here at the time.
A few lots had previously been
measured off, and the name Hesperia
had been given the settlement by
common consent. ' When it came to
make this formal survey and to plac
ing a name on record, a meeting was
held to decide on the survev and a
name for the new town. At this
meeting the name Moline, or City of
Mills, was chosen. Only one man
who attended that meeting still con
tinues to be a resident of Moline. so
far as the Dispatch knows, and that
man is Thomas Mcrryman, at pres
ent a justice of the "peace. Deacon
W. II. Edwards was here, but was
working at Davenport at the time.
Daniel Gordon was also here, but did
not attend the meeting.
This anniversary is one that seems
to us worthy of some observance. A

like to soi- it celebrated, and we
would not be surprised should some
of them bring the matter before the
city council iiext Monday evening.

some kind, at which historical ad
dresses might be made or historical
papers read; then could come a bas

the habit of having annuallv.
The numbers and Steam Fitters Strike
This Morninc Tlie Cause.
The contention bet ween t he pi umb
ers and steam tit ters and the bosses
that has been going on for some
time, has at last reached a crisis and
the plumbers, of Wake & Wirke and
the Davis company, quit work today.
The history of the contention in
brief dates 'back to a year ago, when
a scale was presented to the bosses
to be signed, a.-king for a uniform
rate of wages and hours. It was
signed by the different firms, but a
report gained currency that some of
those who had ' signed had
not lived up to it, although
no trouble was made at the time.
Trouble Over tlie New Seale.
When the committee asked to have
the new scale signed some weeks ago
which provided for an increase to
3.o0 per day instead of $" the com
mittee was met with the proposition
from some of the bosses that all had
not lived up to it and that when all
would sign and live up to the agree
ment it -would be satisfactory all
around. The above mentioned two
firms signed with the condition that
all the rest should do the same, but
since that time none of the others
have signed and the result is that
the men have gone out, ponding a
settlement of the difficulty. About

Ideas of ltuiness.
Chief Sexton, of the Uock Island
police force, proposes to adopt a met
ropolitan uniform for his men. The
design has not been entirely deter
mined upon as yet by the chief, but
will be in a few days, it being the
hope to have the men appear in style
on Memorial day. The permanent
arrangement and assignment of the
men also awaits the next meeting of
the council, when it is believed the
mayor will complete the force. It
is to be my aim," Chief Sexton said
in conversation on the matter "to
give the city of Hock Island a credit
able administration of police affairs.
No effort will be spared to enforce
proper discipline and insure the best
possible protection to the people of
Kock Island. There is no doubt that
with the steady growth of the city,
more vigilance is required, and this
we propose to exert to the fullest ex
tent. We need the telephone system
recommended by my predecessor, and
as between it and the increase of the
force I should say the telephones are
most to be desired if practical
though the department would be
vastU" benefitted by the addition of
both 'the advantages proposed.''

Chief Hrahm, of the fire depart

fest noticeable pride in his work. He
has had the grounds back of the cen
tral engine liouse laid out in attrac

time thev will present an attractive
appearenee. Chief Hrahm has already
commenced a practical inspection of
our business houses, a precaution
which will prove of great advantage
to him in the event of fire. He pro
poses to drill his men thoroughly in
ladder climbing, and in a short time
will ask for the privilege of visiting
the departments of larger cities that
he may look into the practical work
ings of long established systems.
