ROCK ISLAND LL 8 ON I -1 REPORT OF A MACHINISTS' STRIKE AT NEW SHOPS DENIEI The report of an Impending trikt of machinists at New Shop-, printed in some of the papers of this locality is denied hi K. C. Berry, president of Tri-('itv lodge No. 388, International Association of Machinists, with which the men employed at the Rock Islam: plant tire affiliated. 'There is not the slightest ground for the report." Mr. Berry stated "There is no trouble at New Shops. The machinists there are getting along nicely with their employers, and are receiving satisfactory wage. The strike story is a canard. I cannot im agine that any man employed at New Shops could hme been responsible for it." It has been reported upon fairly good authority thai the force at New Shops will m. be cut down this sum mer. but that the men will be allowed to continue until fall. At firsl on tie count of wild, varied n ports circula ted in the eil.v. it was feared that the amber of working men employed would be graatlj i educed on account of scarcity of work, but it now devel ops that llii report was without f im itation and the force will remain as it U with but little change. Along with the tirst report came another to the effect that the work train running from New Kliopt. to the three cities would be discontinued. Upon investi gation It fcellls ll if Ihls steolid re port is n groundless as the first. The takinsr off of the train would cause gmat many of the vv r k 1 n U me n to re mole from this city and nearer t New Shops. tUK-kholdera' N. il S Notice is hereby given of t lie annua! stockholders' meeting of the Hock Isl and Mutual Building, Loan & Savings association to be held at its office. i room 18, Mitchell Ar Lynde building, iHnrk bland.

Before departing Mr. Hur-t reiterated hi- position in regard to the democratic gubernatorial nom ination in Illinois, 'Conscious, as I am. of all tin highly complimentary mention that has been made of my name in this connection,' he said. "1 have never looked upon the question of my- candidacy seriously. While 1 consider the nomination for governoi f Illinois by a great party a an bon .ir of which any man should be proud and worthy of ambit i n. yet I have felt that then- were others more de serving than I. and certainly better able to give to a campaign the Hme and labor that should devolve upon a candidate in whom is reposed so much responsibility . "I have undergone a severe strain In the practice of my profession during the past year, and at no time sinci the tirst discussion of available candi dates have I seen my way clear to en oonrage any of the moves that kim' friends have made in my behalf. I am going abroad on a little trip for rest. When I get back I hope to be useful in doing what I can for the success of the democratic ticket." PERSONAL POINTS.

Henry county. Sturgeon. Stelck A Sturgeon are attorneys for the plain tiff. Only the praecipe has been tiled, but from the attorneys representing Man sill it is learned thai the suit grows from the .-ale of 320 acres of valuable land owned by Mansill in the vicinity of Atkinson. Mansill hist December while look ing over his holdings in Atkinson met English ami engaged him to dispose of the property at S'.hi per acre. Kng lisfa to receive L' per cent commission. It i- claimed t hat Mansill before leaving the town the same day learn ed that he had agreed on a selling price far below what the hind really was worth, and tit noon revoked the contract he had entered into with English. I iielUli SHU l. (1 to Cstour. In the face of the revocation Kng tish assumed power as agent for Man sill and soon thereafter disposed of the land to the Catours for $90 per acre, the latter depositing $500 in an Atkinson bank to bind the bargain. A lecd. in which English signed the name of Mansill as tin- hitter's agent, was tilt d for record at Cambridge, the county seat.

Mr. Sturgeon began suit in Henry county to have the sale of English, so ftir as it related to his 120 acres, an nulled, and won his suit in the court. Kiiflish has begun suit in Henry county to recover commission for the ale of the land to the Catours from Mansill. which the latter has declined to pay. PEOPLE ARE ANXIOUS TO LEAR?
