State's sttauir Saart OoegiMoUtas tns Laboring Paopls oa Tmelr Fiea' t Mi aad TrutM Taoana Ql MM at tkw Bwlpta 1 i BUpaadlter of the Boom Ball Hag. The formal opening of the Indus- trial fair at the roller rink oosurred last evening under the most auspici ous circumstances. The attendance was large and the exhibits shone in all their brilliancy, and the surround ings had that old time fair-like air about them. Bleuer's band played, and there were several delightful numbers by Bowlby's Mandolin or chestra. On the stage wore Mayor T. J. Me- dill, Jr., the members of the council. State's Attorney Searle and Post master T. H. Thomas, trustee of the Industrial home, when Gustav Klotz, president of the Industrial Home as sociation, announced the commnnse- ment of the exercises. He first in troduced Mayor Medill, who made the address of welcome. At the out set he took occasion to congratulate the association upon the beginning 01 a lair wnicn baa every promise of success, ana reierrea to the generous manner in which business men and citizens generallv contributed. The aim, as I understand it, in the holding of fairs of this nature," continued the mayor, "a primarily for the purpose of raising money to meet tne inaeoteaness ooming due on your industrial home building. This monument to organized labor which you have erected with your own hands, the conception of which originated in your own mind s, and construction made possible by your own efforts and exertion, is indeed a monument, and every public spirited citizon should look upon it with priae ana leei an interest m it and assist you to pay lor it. Why Labs Orcanlass. "The trend of all lines of business now seems to be toward organiza tion. Transportation as well as manufacturing, commercial and mining industries have combined to effect their ends, mat is. large in terests in the same line have asso. oiated themselves for the purpose of forcing up or down the price of their commodities, as the case may be, thus rendering it absolutely impossi ble lor a party 01 small means to compete with them. I might also add that it seems where such large volumes ei capital are thus engaged in the employment of labor that the first movement for retrenchment or curtailment in the cost of production or transportation is direoted against labor. Whether the element of la bor constitutes the greater part of the cost of production cr transports tion, depends largely upon the arti. cle produced, but it Is very evident that labor hrst feels the strong arm of retrenchment. These reasons and others I might name are the cause why labor has organized. Xou have formed trades unions for the many lineB of trade and occupation that you pursue. By the establishment of an association or congress, in which all lines of trade unions are represented, you thus combine all in terests and organize a most formlda ble combination. "The exercise of this power should be used with moderation. Labor thus organized, should not become arrogant and too dictatorial: for in Its strength lies its weakness. Re member, the objeot of organizat'on is mutual protection ior me crait To transcend its object is to weaken its foundation. This great power placed in irresponsible hands may lose for you that object which you had hoped to attain. To use it with care, to be firm in your position, and reasonable in your demands, cannot fail to excite the admiration of man kind, command the respeot of all, and crown your efforts with success. BJad Labor. Ton will pardon ma if I refer to a remark that I once made while ad dressing your association some few years ago, 'that we must aispei from our minds the delusion that he alone labors who labors with his hands. That the world was caused to move by means of mind labor.' This as sertion is partially demonstrated by tne tact mat you coma not nave erected the magnificent building that you nave, were it not that the plan waa conceived and evolved from your fertile brain. Thus does the mental labor come in for ita share of the credit. Tour association, as I understand, is composed of the rep resentatives 01 tne iraae unions, Tonr unions ae composed of all skilled labor. Tour skill lies in the knowledge which you possess thus does mental labor claim with physical labor an - equal credit. It has been said that 'So in timate is the relation between them, that the ratio of mental activity is in proportion to the multiplication of the varieties of physical labor. Thus is the clerk in the counting room or the editor at his desk a laborer. We are all laborers in a common field; laboring for a common pur posethe betterment of our condi. tion in life. "We should net allow ourselves to harbor a feeling against capital as many are wont to do. Capital is but a creature or child of labor. which in turn, becomes the Daren t of labor. While labor creates capital,. still without canital wa could not employ labor. They are so closely em hated, ao dependent one on the other, eaoh so necessary for the safe existence of the other that it ia dan gerous to estrange them. "It is only in the abuse of capital when it has been collected in large amounts,! has become dictatorial in 11s sway, and lifts its arrogant head to crush down its associate that we have reason to cry out and com. plain. Let it be handled with care. giving labor its full reward and we need have no fear of its power." After a selection by Bowlby's man dolin orchestra State's Attorney Searle was introduced and made hap py remarks of a congratulatory or der. He spoke of the earnest war in which the laboring people were car rying on their worthy cause, aid of the hearty cooperation they were re ceiving from most of the people. In Kick Island, he said, organised labor knows its rights. But this, unfortu nately, is not the case in other com munities, uere organiaea lanor is recognised and respected by all. and man respects man no one ia looked down upon beoause he works in the saop or tne mine. nr. searie said thia is a period the like of which was never before known in the his tory of the country. Capital has or ganized, and labor has found it nec essary for Its mutual education and protection to do likewite. He was at a loss to prophesy where the ten dency toward organization and com bination was going to end. Loek how capital is combining its forces. No wonder the men who toll, who produce capital, should organize. It is absolutely necessary. Referring to strikes, Mr. Searle held they were illogical. They ought to be settled by the ballot. He liked to aee labor organize for protection, and felt that the tendency toward thought and study would eventually bring about a solution of the labor problem, rtaaaelal Hlatory. A finanoial statement of the condi tion of the Industrial Home bnilrfinir was next read by Trustee Thomas, who said: "It gives me great pleas ure to present the following report of the fioanclal condition of the Indus trial Home Building association, and I am very muoh gratified to be able to inform you that we are now, for the hrst time, in a position not only to pay the interest and all other run. nlng expenses, but also to start a sinking fund for the purpose of pay. ing off the bonded indebtedness. "This home was built by organ ized labor for a noble purpose, and every member of organized labor snouia leoi proud of it and take an active part in its affairs, and work for its interest, for in union thr strength; so let us stand shoulder to snouiaer ana pusn the good work along, for its loss would be unfortu nate to the oause of organized labor. not only financially, but in prestige vruuiu it saavr. "I am proud to be enrared in this work with you and assure you that 1 will at all times be found doing everything I can to advance the in terests of the Industrial Home asso ciation, hoping my services will be BBusinciory to every member of or ganized labor.

WfeuosUaaar Tr tsa ant a BeveyHss- pltal 1st Das port Jaif 1st at Arts DallDtraUn- la Hoar. The heirs at law of Martin rv.nnn are victorious in their suit to annul his Will. In Which ha icnnr.ri tha ma. jority of them and bequeathed the a. It- al S T . . . uuia m uis property, vaiuea at sev eral thousand dollars, to St. Joseph's church. Bock Island, and St. Mary's church, Moline. The argumenta in the case, which has been on trial in the circuit court since Oct. 8. were concluded at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, whan the jury retired. The jury remained out all night, re turning reruict to juage uest at 9 o'clock thia morning, that the paper writing introduced ia evidence was not the will of Martin Connell. The jary was composed of G. A. Darltnc. John C VWla. William Grah, Charlea Heald. Arnold Rursch, trans boB. Charles Jones, Ferry Willis, N. P. Lewis, John Schsat, William Copp, J. A. Johnson. It is probable that n new trial will be asked by the proponents. If this is denied the case may be carried to the higher courts. But the expense attending such a nun snnM it ia said, be greater than the amount at siaae warrants, u tnere is no fur ther legal oontest, the next move will be for the appointment of an ad ministrator of Martin Council's estate, and then will follow the di vision of the property among the heirs, each receiving whst the law provides. The case was s hard fought one. The proponents of the will intro duced W. J. Entrikin. of Moline, who drew the first will June 2, 1892. He said Mr. Connell was perfectly rational at that time, but was in great pain, evidently anffarlnir frnm a protracted spree, and was at death's door. In this will he left all of his property to his three nieoes. But soon afterward he revoked it on oc count of their alleged illtreatment o f mm. tv. a. Bieeao testinea that the will in controversy was drawn by him; that Connell was sane at the time: knew all abont his nvnnartw and remarked that his reason for not remembering his heirs more gen erously waa beoause they had not treated him right, and that Revs. Fathers Greve and Mackm had been kind to him and be meant to reward them by leaving a portion of his property to each. Neighbors and fellow-workmen of Council's were placed on the stand, aad said that during their ac quaintance with him they never thought he was insane. The contest ants introduced a large number of witnesses who testified that Connell had for years been a hard drinker; had peculiar actions, and some of them characterised him as being a weak-minded person. Documents placed in evidence showed there had been three Inquests into Co a cell's sanity. The first in the Rock Island county court, June S3, 1892, when he was adjudged insane. He was treated at Mercy hospital, Davenport, from which ha waa Hia. charged cured three weeks after. I 1 etm lOnu a a a. 1 uij 20. ne was declared eane in the county court. Sept. 3, fol lowing, the will in controversy was made. May 20. 1893, ha was ad judged insane by the insanity con-., mission at Davenport. He as placed under treatment at Mercy hospital and died there s tew days afterward. Utfear Ooart Hattors. The Cases Of thA nannlai J. A.
