The May day festival of the social ists of the tri-cities took place last evening at Claus Groth hall, Daven port. A literary and musical program was rendered and the address of the even ing was delivered by A. R. Simons, of Chicago, who spoke of the principles and pledges of the socialistic party and reviewed the industrial condi tions of the country, both in the past and the present. Mr. Simons is the founder of the "Worker's Call." and at president editor of the International Socialistic Review. For a time he was connected with- the various Chicago dailies and secured his early training and first ideas of socialism while re porting upon a paper. World Grown. The substance of the speaker's re marks was that the idea of the "world" grows constantly larged. In ancient times the world was known as a nar row strip around the Mediterranean. It has been widened by discoveries, but is still unconnected with the com ing of capitalism, steam transiortation and electric communication, the world becomes really the globe. Then came the struggle for the con trol of this world and its markets. This is now practically completed and the capitalists rule the world. In the meantime it has solved the problem of wealth and production, but has separated the worker from tools and the product. Now the struggle is between capital and labor for the pos session of these tools and products. This is the last great world struggle because a victory of the workers means an end of the rulers and the ruled. KnoiiKti for All. The speaker laid particular empha sis upon the assertion that today the world's strpply was large enough to meet all demands but that it was the distribution of this supply which caus ed hunger, poverty and famine. Like wealth, the products are controlled by a few and the masses are made to suf fer by reason of this monopoly. MAY CONTINUE BUSINESS Cralle . Co. Considering Laving in a New Livery Stock. There is a possibility that L. F Cralle & Co. will not discontinue the livery business that the firm conducts in this city. Some time aKo. it will be recalled, the stock of their establish ments in Rock Island and Moline was disposed of for a farm at na, S. D. Though thr stock has been taken away by the new owner Cralle & Co are still conducting a boarding stable at the old stand in the Tindall barn on Third avenue and it is not unlikely that it will later be decided to put in a complete new stock and continue in the business as of yore. The lease on the building does not expire for some months and it may be renewed. The Moline branch, however, will not be continued.

She plead guilty t hi? morning and was fined $2 and costs by Police Magistrate Elliott. James Smith was fined $3 and costs today by Police Magistrate Elliott on a charge of disorderly conduct. A. O.
