RAILWAY MEN STILL OUT Aid is Solicited to Keep up the Fight, Which it fs Believed Will Be Won Eventually. At the regular meeting of the Tri City Iabor congress last evening the business disposed of consisted chiefly of reading of communications, such as appeals and resolutions, and letters from various unions and concerns no tifying the congress here of existing conditions in labor circles abroad. The lir: i communication was from the :-rril,ors formerly employed by the Bloomington Ai- Normal Railway com pany, ami the Btectrfcal v Heating company, of Bloomington. asking for aid, M wai stated that if the unions here were unable to furnish financial assistance that agitation for the pre vention of patronage toward those companies would be highly appro dated it was decidi d thai each de!e gate report the matter to his respec tive union In an endeavor to raise funds for thi strikers. The strikers stated that they have been out since Doc. JO, when their contract with the eompanier expired, and were refused s cent ier hour advance. They say the officers of the company kept de ferring a meeting which they had promised to hold and give the men an audience for the purpose of discuss ing the increase in wages for which tho strikers had asked. The men are outtinir ur a sturdv fleht. and thev feel confident that they will yet win tho day if they are assisted. ClflsMM llnjcoii NtMNpnp-r. A communication from the News !

The communica tion stated that the papers had been at a heavy monetary loss. It was voted to have the secretary write the secretary of the congress at Denver inquiring Into tho matter and if it proves to be as stated in the commu nication it will be decided to assist in getting up subscription clubs as re quested by the publishers. Th3 Clothing Cutters and Trimmers' union of Rochester. N. Y., sent in a letter stating that its members have been on strike for nine months, and asking that the congress here make a firm refutation of the report that the strike had been declared off. Thr union claimed that the manufacturers of the goods are endeavoring to make the public believe that the strike is over and that it has been settled sat isfactorily with tho former, employes. It was also stated in the communica tion that some of the goods had been sold In Rock Island since the men went out. It was asked thnt no un ion man patronize the manufacturers or the merchants handling their goods. Ki, W Fran BarfvaSera. The members of the Bartenders' un ion of Moline have been objecting to their members who work in Rock Island attending the congress as dele gates, they claiming that they bad no right to dej so. A representative of the union was present and asked the con gress for advice upon the matter. The representative was told to notify the union of Moline that the men had a perfect right to attend the congress is d legates. Tour ladies employed by the Tri-City Regalia company, were present tit the meeting and submitted a contract between the employes and the members of the firm which they eked the congress to endorse. It was voted that the congress assist the ladies all that it can. The contract stipulated the following prices and working house, to be effective from July 30 for one year: Nine hours shall constitute a day's work, the hours to be from 7:80 a. m. until 5:30 p. in., except Saturdays, when a day's work shall be 7 hours. The minimum wages are B0 cents per day for tho first month, T." cents the next two months. 9U cents for tho next three months, and $l.-.r after a year. As an amend ment to the contract drawn. E. C. Berry moved that it be inserted in the contract that none of tho employes shall be discharged without a just rea son being given for such a dismissal, the speaking claiming that it would bo a protection to tho employes, basing his reason upon the fact that there are firms which discharge their employes when they get To making good wages and have their places filled with cheaper labor. The motion was car ried. Mr. Berry extended an Invitation to tho delegates to attend the Tri-City Labor day celebration at Grand Isle, Sept. 5. HAVE NEW BATTING ORDER Thornton Selected to Lead Off the Team Again Miller as Captain. I tie KOCK Island baseball team ar rived home itist night from Rock ford in charge of the newly appointed man ager, Hugh Nicol. Ross Thornton. who had been on trial with Columbus joined his former team mates at Da- vifl Junction, and came on homo with mem. stiller expressed nimsen as pleased at having been relieved of the responsibilities of manager, as he real ized it interfered with his playing. He and Thornton both expressed a tie sire to pull together and put in thci. best licks for Rock I .-land for the re mainder of the season. Manager Nicol today reappointed Miller captain oi trie team. 1 ne halting order was rearranged also, and Thornton re stored to his old place at the head ot the list. This will be joyous news to the fans, as there is not a .bett base getter in the league than Thornton. Returning with the team last even ing were" Director H. K. Cs Steel and Secretary J. K. Poetz. Manager Nicol had a lengthy conference this morning with President Sexton of the local as sociation in which a thorough undei standing as to the direction of the team was arrived at. "We have the material for tho mak ing of as fast a club as there is in the league." Nicol said after the confer ence. "There is no reason that I n see Why Rck Island should not be tin in the first division in a few- weeks, if affairs go as smoothly as I anticipate they will. Henceforth I am for Rock Island, not Rockford. While I was with Rockford I fought for that town as loyally as any one could, but you will find me fighting as strongly for Rock Island in tho future. I am now for Rock Island against the world in baseball." Manager Nicol announces that be ginning today the hatting order of his team will be as follows: Thornton, center: Fisk. short: Vandine. third: Lister, first; Miller, second: Smith, left: Sump, right: Hessler or Meyer, catcher: Liebhardt. Lundin. Hager man or Iikaff. pitcher.

The program for the annual tri-city celebration of labor day. which comes on Sept. 5 this year, was arranged last night by the Rock Island Industrial Home association at its regular meet ing. The affair will take place at Grand Isle. There will be no promi nent speakers from abroad on this oc casion, all of the oratory to be furnish ed by local talent. The individual unions and the business public of the tri-cities have been Invited to take part in the celebration, and. judging from the hearty responses, the celebration will be a grand success. The parade will take place at 10 o'clock in the morning in Rock Island. A committee on program appointed consists of M. J. Whalen. Allen Pratt and P. C. Pickle. The committee on parade is composed of Peter Nelson. .!. W. Wilson. J. W. Cavanaugh. Gus Salzmann, J. W. Boger and Frank En tier. Preparations for street car and steamboat service will be made and the large crowd will be handled effectually. The local speakers will make appropriate talks upon the day and its origin and purpose. The auditing committee of the In dustrial Home association reports thai the total receipts of T. H. Thomas, who is acting as agent for the association, in the management of the building, the past year amounted to $4.I9:5.3S, and the expenditures $3,880.89, leaving a balance of $812.49.

We would therefore most urgently recommend to the dif ferent unions the necessity of continu ing the assessment." DUST FROM THE DIAMOND Here's good luck to you "Nic' are all with you. Now let the manager manage the public keep its hands off. w I vet Cameron and D;-xter. of the Superior team which has disbanded, have joined Rockford. Hagernian pitcned one of his cus tomary games. In addition, he was there with the stick. Attention has been called to the fact that the Springfield is now on its last trip to the northern end of the league. Tho Rockford directors have let Mer rill go. Merrill has not proven such great disappointment to the directors as to cause his release, but it is be lieved a better man has been secured in George Nichols, who has joined the team. There is only praiso on every side on the work of the Rock Island pitch ing staff on the recent disastrous trip. With the team generally in such a demoralized condition the pluck of the pitchers in doing their best at all times is certainly appreciated. Marks' home run with the bases full won the game for the Young Rock Islands from the Young Americas yes terday afternoon 1G to 11. The bat teries were Marks. Harris and Som- mers for tho winners and Finkelstein. Kohn and Harris for the loosers. Now that the local association has restored order out of the chaos Into which the Rock Island baseball club was thrown through the meddling of knockers the place for the aforesaid knockers is in the back seat. Rock Island ought to be done with heeding the wail of the knocker for all time phold the manager and cheer on he boys at every stage of the ccedings. Manager Hayes has signed two new players. One is William Staton, the p who was given his first try-j ROCK ISLAND SKIRT CO.

He feels well equipped with catch ers and in the pitching staff there is of course no ground for complaint. Lister, Miller and Vandine on the in i'eld and Thornton In the outfield are fixtures. What other changes are made will depend Upon the trying out of the numerous players now on hand from which Nicol will make his selec tions. The great little center Solder of Cleveland, who was once witb Hock Island, established a new record in Huston Tuesday afternoon by pulling down 12 flies in center field. He also drove in Cleveland's first run with a two-bagger, sent in the winning rut: with a single thai tallied Hickman f rom second, and himself scored a few minutes later on Bernhard's single. Harry also stole a base, and by fast tiedding prevented a double by Sel hach from becoming a home run. Players who have been misbehaving during the past two weeks wore dis ciplined this morning by President Sexton in accordance with his an nounced attention to teach a lesson to those who have been horsing the as sociation and the city they represent, .ally was fined $100 and suspended indefinitely for "insubordination, mut iny and indifference." Ulakey was fined $2o and suspended Indefinitely for the same offenses. Other members of the team suffered minor penalties lor failure to heed former admonitions from the president and given warnings as to their future conduct. During the morning Managi 1 Nicol had the boys at his room in the Rock Island house for a heart to heart talk. TODAY'S MARKETS. Chicago. July 212.

Mr. Murphy related that there are some 1.600 persons in the prison and thai under the new law he has nothing for the prisom rs to !. lb' can give em ployment to 400 about the grounds. The rest must remain in idleness. Thus far all the exercise thai the have has been the military drill given I hem daily on the grounds. As there is nothing for them to do. they must remain in their cells all tho rest of the time. "Imagine yourself." said the warden to his visitor, "shut up in one of those small cells till day during such weath er a. this. The thought is enough to drive a man to desperation. It is sim ply to swelter and do nothing. The nun can not stand it. Their health will fail and they will go crazy." The warden then spoke of the in- crease in the death rate in cOn se quence of this idleness and confine ment in the cells during day time. The effect on the mental condition of the prisoners is terrible. Then while they it re thus shut up in their cells in idleness they are bringing nothing to the state and are being supported by the taxpayers in this condition. They are earning nothing toward their own support. It was learned by the visitor that while the making of contract labor goods in tho Illinois penitentiaries had been stopped, there is no law against the shipping of other goods in here from other states. The result is that there are large shipments into Illinois of the goods that are made in the penitentiaries of other states. The wtti den said that of the goods made ia Illinois prisons in the past a large pro portion of them were shipped into other states. Now the free labor of the state has to compete with the prison goods made in other states. The warden considered the problem of what to do with the prisoners a very difficult one.
