SESSIONS OF THE SYNOD.
The Work This Morning and the BaslnMs
Transacted Yesterday Afternoon.
At this morning's meeting of the
Swedish Lutheran synod in session
at Augustana college there was a
good attendance, the election of di
rectors for Augustana college being
completed. Rev. J. Erlander, of
Gowrie, la., was elected for three
years. Rev. J. Dahlberg, of Altoona,
111., for two years, and Dr. O. Olsson,
of Augustana college, and Samuel
Anderson, of Chicago, for one year
each. A report was also received
and read from the beneficiary fund
of the synod which was of a very sat
isfactory character, after which a re
port was received from the manage
ment of the Lutheran Augustana Book
cencern, which was also of a very
satisfactory character. A resolution
was offered and adopted, the pur
port of which is to encourage
Dr. E. Norelius to proceed with his
historical work on the progress of
the Swedish Lutheran church in
America. One volume of the work
is already finished and in print cov
ering the historv of the church to
1860. The board of control of the
book concern was chosen as follows:
Rev. S. P. A. Lindahl of this city
editor of Augustana. C. G. Thnlin,
of Moline, and G. Bodin, of St. Paul.
Reports were received from the
church extension society and a reso
lution was adopted authorizing the
board to engage a financial agent to
work in the interests of the society.
Today is ladies' day and this evening
Miss Anna Shaw speaks on temper
ance at the Jubilee tent.
Yesterday Afternoon's Session .
According to agreement the report
of the committee on a new constitu
tion which was made the special or
der for yesterday afternoon was tak
en up and the work of adopting it ar
ticle by article was begun. The
main cause of contention was the
plan of representation. Instead of
the svnod being composed of all cler
gymen and delegates elected by each
congregation an entirely new plan
was adopted. According to the new
plan the synod will hereafter be com
posed of one minister and one layman
for every 1,500 members, which will
be elected by the different confer
ences. Besides these the members of
the synodical council composed of
two representatives from each con
ference will be members. The
president and theological faculty
of Augustana college and also
one delegate from that institution
will also be members. The treas
urer of the synod is an ex-oflicio
member. Two-t birds of the mem
bers constitute a quorum. It is fig
ured that the plan will be more sat
isfactory all around, as representa
tion will grow with the expansion of
the membership and at the same
time be representative in every re
spect. A the present membership,
the synod would be composed of 170
members under the new plan. The
plan after being adopted this year
will be in vogue until the meeting of
the next synod when it will be acted
upon finally. Last evening there
was a discussion on home missions
by Rev. M. Noyd, C. J. Tetri, N. Le
Vean and G. Nelsenius, there - being
other services at the different
Warren on the Right Track.
The board of supervisors of War
ren county is moving in the direction
of a new court house, having adopted
the following resolution:
'Resolved, That it be the sense of
this board that a court house be
erected to cost not to exceed $80,
000." The Warren County Democrat for
gets Rock Island in some of its re
marlySconcerning the project yet in
somd rjespectsf its statements , are di
rectly applicable to Rock Island
No county in western Illinois, ex
cept it be Mercer, is more in need of
a new court house than Warren
county, Our present building is
hardly fit for use at all. Let the new
building be erected as soon as prac
ticable. The age of. the building makes it
necessary to constantly repair it, and
to the advocatesof a new court house
this appears like "putting new wine
in old bottles."
Stone Cutters Sympathy.
The Stone Cutters are also in line
with the locked out carpenters, the
following resolution being adopted
at their meeting last evening:
Whereas, It is apparent to all or
ganized labor that the employing
carpenters of Rock Island are making
an attempt to disrupt L. U. 166, U.
B. carpenters, be it
Resolved, By Rock Island Branch
f the General Union of Stone Cut
ters of North America, that we stand
by our fellow workmen of Carpen
ters' Union 166. Believing at all
times that their cause is our cause
and we hereby pledge them our full
financial support and will decline to
work with non-union carpenters
pending a settlement of the present
trouble. William Robb, Pres.

The Proposed Jfew Factory and What it
The prospects are very good today
for the proposed new glass factory
project, which, as The Argus stated
yesterday, is likely to be the result
of the closing down of the Rock Isl
and glass factory plant by the trust
now owning it. The committee rep
resenting the glass blowers. and com
posed of Messrs. Al. Owens, Phil
Theibert, ' Rudolph Schaum, Simon
Byrnes and John Broomhall, has been
busy today with its mission of at
tempting to form a local company.
Despite the stringency in the money
market, businessmen generally have
expressed a willingness and desire to
back the glass workers in subscrip
tions should a company be formed,
the scheme being to inaugurate an
industry on the cooperative plan.
Opposed to the Trust.
. The announcement in The Argus
on Wednesday evening that the
United Glass company had noti
fied its men here that they
need not expect employment
next season, thus stopping an outlay
of $8,000 monthly here, was received
with much indignation by citizens
generally, owing' to the fact that
the local market has . always more
than supported the factory, consum
ing the bulk of its output every year.
The apparent disposition of the trust
therefore, to shut down its plant
here and compel the local manufac
turers to pay the freight on glass
from factories located elsewhere,
aroused much feeling, and the move
ment looking to the starting of a new
factory was the outcome.
It is hoped and believed the new
factorv undertaking will succeed.
Meeting with KneonraKement.
The committee met with encour
agement from the local factories pat
ronizing the glass works, every one
in the three cities assuring the com
mittee that it would give the new
industrv the preference Over all oth
ers in the purchase of glass. When
the fact is taken into con
sidcration that the upper sash
door and blind factory here
uses $50,000 worth of glass an
nually, and one factory in Davenport
2."j, 000 boxes, one may gain an idea
of the demands of the local market
In the matter of subsciptions one
business man who had pledged $300
to the Noxall factorv state.l that lie
would put $1,000 into t'.e new glass
It is reliably stated the United
Glass companv would sell its factory
here to the new company, but the
projectors will probably not want it.
as illiam Koth has oueren too no
nation of a factorv site.
The Kourth at the Tower.
. Manager ; J. K. Montrose of the
Tower, returned this morning from
Chicago where with President Lou
derbaek of the Davenport & Rock
Island railway company arrange
ments were completed for a suitable
observance of the fourth ot July at
the Tower. A band of music will be
on hand all dav, and there will be
dancing in the picnic pavilion after
noon and evening. A grand balloon
ascension is to occur in the after
noon and in the evening a magnifi
cent display of fireworks is to be
presented from the island opposite
the Tower. Several hundred dollars
are to be expended on this feature
which is to include a number of set
pieces and every thing that goes to
complete an elaborate modern pyro
technic entertainment. The grounds
are to be prettily illuminated at
night, and no pains will be spared to
make the delightful place attractive
That Flouring; Milt.
Mr. Johnson, mentioned as inter
ested in a movement to. build a mill
on the other side of the' river, states
that the effort to build in Moline has
not fallen through, as the Democrat
stated, bnt that action is held in
abeyance to await the making of a
decision between that city and Rock
Island. ,, An option is held on land in
Moline, and it may be used if Rock
Island is not selected. The matter
will probably be decided by the ac
tion of the Rock Island city council
on the coming Monday night, when
the application for side-track facili
ties will be acted upon. Mr. John
son further says that the mill will be
not less 250 barrels capacity, and
that it will embrace an oatmeal mill
as well. The cost of the plant is not
to bo limited to $20,000, as he says he
can get all the money he wants.
L. II. Harms, secretary of the
Schiller lodge, A. O. U. W., Moline,
some time ago reduced certain
charges to writing concerning the
moral character of A. Milde of that
place. Harms was arrested for crim
inal libel, but Squire Kerns, of Mo
line, dismissed the case. Proceed
ings were then commenced here in
Justice Weld's court against Harms,
and he was brought down by Con
stable Eckhart. Justice Weld held
him in bonds of $500 to the circuit

Two months ago if a man "wanted
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate

are, good. The objection to the first
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
