LABOR TAKES ACTION
Tri-Citv Congress to Contest
Federal Injunction Pro
ceedings. MOEE OPEN SUNDAY STOEES
Moline Merchants Return to Old
The principal business before the
Tri-City Labor congress yesterday was
cf such a nature as to require consider
ation in executive session and the body
was occupied behind closed doors over
three hours. The main matters up
were the Sunday closing question, in
cluding an injunction brought against
the congress by a Davenport clothing
firm, and a reorganization of policy
with a view of securing a return of
various unions to membership in the
Previous to going into executive
session, action was taken restoring to
the fair list those lirnis that had been
declared unfair on account of handling
the Buck stoves and ranges Commu
nications were read from the carpen
ters and paper hangers stating their
reasons for refusing to send delegates
to the congress. In both cases the
countenancing of political action was
the only reason ascribed.
The congress in executive session
readopted a resolution originally acted
upon a year ago barring from mem
bership anyone holding a political
otlice. J. M. Farhham and E. C.
Berry were appointed tr represent the
congress at Keokuk, Dec. 3, at the
hearing of the injunction proceedings
begun by Silbersteia Bros., of Daven
port, and to employ attorneys to con
test the proceedings in behalf of the
congress. It was decided to arrange
an entertainment to raise funds to
pay the expense of the legal tight,
which the congress proposes to carry
to he end.
Moline retail clerks reported that
the Moline clothing stores had opened
again yesterday. A mass meeting
may be held in Moline shortly to pro
test against the retailers keeping their
stores open on Sunday.
The following resolution was adopt
ed: Resolved, that the Tri-City Labor
congress regrets tne efforts or the
Springfield newspapers to attribute
to ollicials or the Jloleri) woouman
society an improper interest or motive
in connection with contracts of the
society, and we learn with pleasure
that Tri-City Typographical Union
relies upon the assurance of said of
ficials that the interests of organized
labor in the premises will be fully
F.fTect of Injunction.
By the restraining order issued by
the United States district court of Iowa
last Saturday, the Tri-City Labor con
gress, its constituent members, asso
ciates, ollicers, agents and attorneys,
and all parties acting or contemplat
ing to act in their behalf, or under
their authority, are especially re
strained and enjoined frm publish
ing anv statements, either in their
oiliciaf organ, the Tri-City Unionist,
or in any other newspaper calculated
or intended to injure the reputation
or business of the plaintiffs, from dis
tributing, posting or causing to be
posted, stickers, labels, cards, ban
ners or other devices in writing, print
or lithographing, bearing the name of
the plaintiffs with the intention of in
juring tneni or tneir business. Ail
persons, too, are restrained from
gathering in front of the place of bus

pose of interfering with them or mo
lesting any persons who wish to enter
their store to trade with them.
An Old Time EnKllnh Kleetlnu.
T!io only contt-st whk-fi occurred at
Gattin within historic memory was
curious ennujrli. Sir Mark Wood, who
had been one of its members for sever
al Ttiirs, had as his collontrue In thes
parliament of 1S12 Sir William Con
jreve, the inventor of the famous "Con
jrreve rocket." The latter resipned in
1S1G, and the baronet wished his own
son to fill the vacancy.
There wore only three voters In the
constituency. Sir Mark, his son and bis
butler, named Jonninss, but as the son
was away and the butler had quarreled
with bis master an opportunity was af
forded for a singular revenge. Jen
nings refused to second Sir Mark's
nomination of his son and proposed
himself, and a deadlock was averted
only by Sir Mark coining to terms with
the refractory butler, whose nomina
tion he seconded in order to induce him
to not as seconder to his son.
Matters being thus put formally In
train. Sir Mark arranged with Jen
nings that the former's vote should be
alone given, and the final state of the
poll at Gatton's only known contest
stood thus: Wood (Tory), 1; Jennings
(Whig), 0. Westminster Gazette.

The report of Secretary James R.

tistics in regard to the order. In the
state there are 873 lodges, of which six
were instituted during the last year.
These lodges have a membership of

The official count of the vote of the
Fifteenth congressional district shows
that J. Ross Mickey, democrat, has
defeated Col. B. F. Marsh, republican,
by 264 plurality.
The question now is, in view of the
election to the legislature of Mr. An
drews, what committee will call the
senatorial convention two years hence.
If Mr. Andrews' election is to be con
strued as an indorsement at the polls
of his convention at Cambridge, not
withstanding that it was pronounced
illegal by law, it will probably fall to
his conmittee to do the calling. Yet
in Rock Island county the fact that
1,500 democrats failed to vote on the
legislative candidates at all is evi
dence of the intention to support the
straight democratic ticket with the
supposition that, despite all the warn
ing that was given, this carried Mr.
McEniry through. But it did not.
A leading trade journal the day af
ter election telegraphed the prominent
manufacturers of the state to wire
their views of the outcome. Among
those who responded was Gerge
White, of the White Buggy company,
of this city, who states that as one of
the results of the way prosperity has
struck his enterprise a new Rock Isl

it is contemplated that no election
precinct shall contain more than 450
voters. The returns from the recent
election show two precincts in the

city having in excess of 450 votes.
The second -of the Third has 480 and
the second of the Seventh 477. It is the
duty of the county board at its next
July meeting to reanange these pre
cincts so as to reduce the vote in each

probably be accomplished by changing
