tor of the Akgis: Will you allow
us to correct a statement made in the
Union of the 24th in reference to a
farewell picnic bv the window glass
workers to be held on Labor day.
People reading the article referred
to are led to beli ive that the glass
workers as a body are interested in
this affair, whicl. is not so. There are
just four of their number in it. I
believe that the sentiments of the
glass workers as a body are expressed
here by saying tl ey are opposed tt
any labor organisation or any mem
ber of such holding a picnic on that
day. when a tri-t ity affair has been
decided upon, and it is Davenport's
time to celebrate. Let the labor ele
ment of the tri-cities understand this
matter properly, and if there is any
blame, investigate and place it where
We dislike very much to leave this
city, but circumstances over which
we have no contr d compel us to seek
livelihood elsewhere. And we trust
(not on the United) that a year hence
or sooner w ill find the Bock Island
glass works in fi II blast.
Chief Brahm, of the Koek Island
fire department, returned from Mil
waukee last even ng. where he had
been attending the annual meeting
of the lire chiefs t f America. He hail
a tip top time, and gained much val
uable informatioi: from the chiefs of
the larger cities, and the varous ex
hibitions given, which he will im
part to his men, thus increasing the
efficiency of the local department.
In order to get in:o the inner circle
of the chiefs, Brahm joined the Na
tional Association of Fire Engineers,
having stood the required crucial
tests unflinchingly, ne came home
laden with badger- and medals aud
full of fire fighting inspiration.

McCabe May Branch.
There is a generally prevailing ru
mor in Davenport that L. S. McCabe
has leased the handsome new- Ken
wick building being erected on Bra
dy street, that city, under the origi
nal idea of C. A. Meek, recently as
signed, occupying it. Mr. McCabe
was quite non-committal and evasive
when approached on the subject this
morning, but he did not deny that
th re is something in the w ind. In
any event, should he decide to open
a branch house in Davenport, the
people of that city will merit con
gratulation, which the Aicni s takes
its chances on offering now.
