There is trouble between the mas
ter and journeymen carpenters of
lioek Island, which has resulted in
the latter to the number of 1.51 quit
ting work, thus affecting every one
of the 16 contracting carpenter lirnis
in the city. The present disagree,
nii'iil is not due to the wage quest ion.
ilthough the nine-hour day enters
into the controversy. Primarily the
journeymen maintain that only union
men should be employed by the master
carpenters. This positi.m on their
part was full y set forth in a petition to
th.? master carpenters -ubmittcd last

the result that the following resolu

Kesolved, 'That this association
while recognizing t he rights of or
ganized labor to be the same as that

and while we are willing to grant the
demand of the Carpenters Union
that nine hours shall constitute a

deny the right of any body of organ

Hock Inland union. No. li(i. of tin
Carpenters and Joiners" P.rother-
liood ot America, met tins morning
at Hillier's hall and adopted the fol-
i;i k Isi..M. May 20. In
Sunday morning's Union appeared
an article from the Contrac
tors and Master Carpenters'
association, stating that they would
not discriminate between union and
non-union men. which is contrary to
the constitution anil by-laws of Car
penters' union 1 " G of Hock Island.
We wish to state that the members
of the aforesaid association have alt
received !i copy of the by-laws and
constitution of the Carpenters" union
lf" of Koek Island. Consequently,
they are fully aw are of w hat the con
tents of said by-laws and constitu
tion are. We also wish to state that
most of the members of the Con
tractors ami Master Carpenters' as
sociation formerly belonged to the
Carpenters" union 1M of .Hock
Island, and from the appearance of
the feeling that exists with the con
tractors, they are trying to crush
the Carpenter-" union. The cause of
the trouble is brieily this: A man
by the name of William Kol.ison. a
former member of this union, after
paving a few mouths' dues dropped
out . claiming t hat the secretary of
the union did not notify him that he
was in arrears. He was reinstated,
and during the last year he became
delinquent, and his plea is the same
as before, while the books of the sec
retary show that he was notilied
Our constitution says no member
can be reinstated unless he pays six
months back dues and the initiation
fee (w hich is !?") and cost of member
ship card (w hich is ."( i cents). This
he refused to do most emphatically,
using language unlit. Collins I'ros.
employed this man. ami he is the one
that is the cause of all this trouble.
l"or anv contractor to be so stubborn
as to insist on keeping any man w ho
is so ignorant that he does not know
when he is in arrears when his card
shows how he stands any reasonable
person will see the folly of such a
course. What the object is of the
Master Carpenters" association in tak
ing the stand they did is something
more than we can understand, as it
is an understood thing that we,
the members of union 100, have no
demands of any kind. We have only
asked the bosses to hire union men
and we did not say they could not
hire any non-union men, but we hold
the right to call such men into the
union; and we think there is nothing
unreasonable in what we ask, and
everything as it stands causes a lock
out not a strike.

THE SILENT SOLDIER.
(weneral Manager Parsunt of the Wept
Side Cahle System Here Local Notes.
President 1). II. Louderlutck, of the
Davenport & Hock Island Railway
company, spent yesterday in the tri
eities, returning home last evening.
Mr. Kouderback was accompanied by
his friend, J. B. Parsons, vice presi
dent and general manager of the
West Division Cable company, of
Chicago, one of the greatest systems
of the world. Mr. Parsons said he
had merely come down to look over
the tri-eity anil plant ami system:
Mr. Louderbaek refused to talk on
the object of Mr. Parson's visit, but
at all events the latter took a great
deal of interest in the local system,
praised its workings and was partic
ularly profuse in his compliments to
President Louderbaek concerning the
Tower. It would not be surprising
if Mr. Parsons should become inter
ested in thi' tri-eity system some
day. Indeed, it is not divulging anv
secrets to state that the syndicate
ha reached that stage where it needs
more capital about as badly as it is
possible for it to need it, and if it can
show that there is a future for its sys
tem here, it may be able to interest
some more of thegreat street railway
men of Chicago. Speaking of the
tri-eity system. Mr. Parsons said to
an A Kill s reporter: ! am amazed
at the street railway facilities you
have here in the three cities. You
are Jt) years in advance of anv other
cities of your size in the United
States. Tin' system is splendidly
managed, equipped, built and opera
ted and the uniform appearance of
the cars and men is a credit 1 am
sine. All you need now to complete

sengers, and. with such a lovely spot
as Black Hawk Tower to induce peo
ple to ride, there ought to be no com
plaint on the score of patronage.""

in establishing a uniform system of

attended. John Buford Post. G. A.

the Woman's Relief corps, met at
Grand Army hall at l' a. m. and
marched to the church. The inter
ior of the handsome structure had
been profusely decorated with plants
and flowers, the national colors be
ing artistically draped about. Ser
vices were opened with praver bv
Rev. F. W. Merrell. which was fol
lowed bv music and a responsive ser
vice. The congregat ion then united
in singing America." after w hich a
double male quartette rendered a se
lection. Rev. Merrell delivered an
eloquent and stirring sermon appro
priate to the occasion, in which he
paid a high tribute of respect to the
nation's honored dead, and from
their self-sacritieing devotion drew
an example worthy the emulation of
the young men of today. His re
marks were listened to with the
keenest interest and deeply im
pressed his hearers.
I have this week some new
ami tasty llower holders; pretty
shapes in decorated designs, and
several sizes in slender crystal
vases. The effect of llowers for
home decoration will be much
increased by using some of
them. Prices very reasonable,
