W. tiae'a Atlarraa Uefare the Ilaek lalaa L,eaae..A Oeelaratlaa f Okjeeta tha Part r the An rlatlaa. Kev. O. W. Gtte. of the 1'ir.t M. E. church, addressed tbe Rock It land Eight Ilour league at it weekly meeting at If illier's ball last evening. Tl e different minuter of the city have ml agreed to pek before the league a tiey may be calhd upon to do o by tbe committee. Mr. Que expressed the pleas ire and the honor be fell when called Un to ad dreaa a gathering of worklngnen. Wo ooght to be in the warm tst gyniia thy. as our interests flow together. The true minister of the gospel is a friend of the working classes, and of the poor and helpless. The very nature of bis calling sends him out to work in the interest of other. 1 believe the gi-eat r form and benevolent enterprise of the age are due more to tbern tban any oth r cla of men. We are bard toiler in tbe interest of humanity. It is our privileg j and dutv to touch in our discourses upon all themes tbat concern our country and hu manitypolitical, secular and religious. In thi land of liberty we wa it to fear lessly discus every measure that effect our citizens. There are two principles that should govern us in evtry reform enterprise: One is organ iz.tioD: theolb er agitation. No great refornation ever came in any otuer way. Tho abolition of slavery was brought about by orgaoU iziog and agitating until tbe waole coun try was stirred. This Is the hopeful fea. ture in this eight hour movement that brings us together this even ng. It is not a question concerning s,n e political party or church creed, but on j effecting all classes. You certainly t.re taking hold of this matter in the mont sensible and Intelligent way. Public discussion, printed cocuraents. calling the attention of tbe Intelligeut public, and when the movement is prope ly understood it will commend itself. You are a hundred time more likely to ucceed in this way tban though you went out on strikes and boycotting. The laboring mi-n in this country, if organized on the principle of righteousness, would be tbe miuhtiest power In this land. Tbey wjtild com mand respect for those who are doing the hardest work and carrying the greatest responsibilities. Capital is organized and intrenched and can do about as it pleases. Let laboring classes organize in tie rigut spirit, and there will be a compro mise between labor and cani al. Whv do banks open at 9 a. m. anc close at 3 P m. T Because they are organized. Why do school teachers begin ' heir day's work at 9 a. m. and close at 4 p. m. with an hour's nooning Because there is organization in tue educational work in this country. Whv do the letdine men. clerks, etc , in our fireat corporations work only eight boursT Because the men who control these corporations know that eight bours of work bv clar headed fresh men is worth more tban ten to a'x teen hours of work by overtaxed ex--haunted men. Why is it thi t tbe gov ernment recognizes eight hour a a day's lanorr Decause tbe men who bave made it study believe ibatiliaiat much as men can endure day after day and con tinue healthy and pure. Wb'v is it that tens of thousands of bard-t iling men have no regard shown them, and capital dictaliog to tbem a though tbey were slavesT Because they are not organized. ana uo not stand up for their on rights. Tbe capitalist claims a ribl to bis property, and dictates regarding the way tt is to be used, and it is right. And the workingman has a slock in tiade it is bis time, bis brains, bis sweat and mus cle; and he has a right to s what bis laoor is worth, and bow many bours he will work, and with proper organization be can do it. But you are tolc it is your right to work aa few bours ii a dav as you choose, but yon should be paid pro portionally. But such do no. take into account tbat the lee hour of toil tbe better quality of work you w II do, and judging from the past the le hour of work tbe better pay. Men who now work the greatest number of bours get the least wagea. Eight hour work day after day by tho same man i worth more to a firm tban aixteen hours' work. Men a not able to toil more than eight bours every day and keep op good spirits anl in good health. When the eight hour principle is gen erally recognized we will ee a better state of things among our working classes, tbey will receive better pay, more men will be employed and a better qual ity of work will be given, and they will be a better class of cit'zen. I ut we are told that it will only sflord mo e time to visit saloons and will increase tiissiptttion but the reverse is true. Wao are the drunkards and dissipated men imong our working classes 1 Tbey are tbose who work tbe greatest number of hours and receive tbe smallest wages. Oyer taxing the physical powers tend to dissipation. Eight boura for aleep, eight Dour for labor and eight bout for recrialion and Improvement of the mind. TLere is no country in tbe world where more work- ingmen own tbeir own homes .ban here in America, because tbey tiive more rights here and better pay. But there are tbose In tbis country wbo an over taxed physically, and ttey have no ambition or care for personal a spearancc. for borne comrorts or anything or the kind; tbey are nearly all renters, living in garret, cellars asd back al eys, doing tbe hardest work, working tbe seat hours for the least pay. The christian religion can scarcely reach tbeae classes, tbey have no ambi tion to go to church and do nit appre ciate the gospel blessing. What tbey need first ia more daylight at bame, more bours to read, more bours to Oikke borne pleasant. When manhood is not crushed finer feelings will develop and love for home. and home comforts wil manifest themselves. Such a borne wil) cultivate loyalty to our country and a respect for our laws. We want in tbi lend of lib erty a higher type of citizenship, a con scientious regard for the nghlii or others. We all should stand on Const' great principle "A ye would that ipen should do for you, do ye even o to t em." A committee composed of tbe officers of the league reported tbe following DECLARATION OF PURPt 8K8 of the league which was adoped; We, tbe officer of tbe R ick Island Eight Hour League have been informed tbat a rumor ia current tbat tbis league ia not what it is claimed to be jy tbe pros jector of tbe movement, or in other word, that it i political cl erne run in the interest of some political t arty, or in tbe Interest of some one looking for a political office, take this method of itat ing that if such rumor are in circulation they are absolutely false at d without foundation of any kind whatever to war rant them; and that the parties using tbem are not in the interest tl or true friends to tbe labor cauae nor in favor of tbe eight hour day. We look upon tbem if there be auch in our midst. a enemies and not friend of labor, notwithstanding all assertion tbey may make to tbe con trarv. And as tbey are not f dr enough in this matter to come to tb meetings and make known, there. In public, their reason for auch statement, sod give the member of tbe league a chance to de fend themselves, and at the t me time to refute those charge, we deem it onr duty, both to tbe people and ouiselves a officer of tbe league, and to : ta members generally, to make this public atatement of tbe objects of this league. Tbe eight hour agitation ii neither a local or a national matter. It is so in ternational matter, and in on er to prop erly discuss and understand it, leagues are formed, and we. as worl ing people, deem it a duty wa owe to onrselves, our families and the working class in gen era!, to keep np with the times and or ganize and agitate for shorter hour of toil for tbe masses. In doing this we hope to help alleviate a great deal of the distress and suffering that now exist in all branches of honorable toil. We hope to establish the elght-bonr day in all branchea of industry; we hope to make it s universal measure instead of a sectional one, and thus creating a healthy demand in the labor market, and con tribute to tbe health, happiness and pro perity of the people. We hope, through tbis measure, to give all a chance to earn a livelihood. We sincerely believe tbat tbe universal adoption of the eight-hour day will give all working people leisure and opportunity to enjoy the fruit of their labor, Knowing this to be the object, and tbe only object, of this league, we now state, over our signatures, that all persons who are Interested in the welfare of this conn try and its institutions, regardless of na tionality, creed. ez or color, are welcome to, and are respectfully invited to attend its meetings and become member of the Kock Island Eight Hour league. Also that all are invited to attend all meetings and discus tbe eight hour day, whether in favor or against It. whether they are member or not. Hoping thi notice will set matter right before tbe public a regard tbe aims and objects of the Eight Hour league, we are, respectfully yours, Uuvrav Klotz, President, J. W. Cayanacoh, ) tt. r. , , Thos. Pknper, I Vice-Presidents, Melvin Parker, Tres., Edward Bubrill, Sec. The Waadaaea lavrailaratiaa. Tbe investigation of the affairs of tbe Modern Woodmen by the state auditors is going on rapidly. The regular work of Head Clerk Brayton and his clerks is not interrupted, and the business of tbe order is being conducted aa usual. Head Consul Root, Head Banker Smith and S. L. Waide, chairman of the finance com mittee, have all paid their respects to the state authorities, and each turned over for inspection all papers and records con nected with his office required to make tbe examination complete. Tbe ex perts were assured that they should have all the assistance possible and every fa cility would be afforded them so that their work may be as thoroagh as possible and completed as soon as tbe msgnitude of the task will admit. The examination will doubtless extend to tbe afftira of Head Physician McEinnie and the order will have the satisfaction of knowing whether tbe reports of the Investigating committee is right or not. The examin ation can but be the verv best thing pos sible in relation to tbe membership hav ing a full and complete understanding as to tbe financial management of tbe or der. If everything ia all right so much tbe better, and if anything is shown to be wrong let' go to work and correct the same. Fulton Journal. Katertalasarata.

H. 31 a r-phr-.He Will a ta H aehlasrtoa ta Warn for the Caaal- Exerative Ceaaaaltcee Appelated. As tbe time approaches for the conven ing of congress, interest In tbe great Hen nepin canal project is being revived, and the indications are tbat the friends of the meaiure will make a determined fight for a congressional endorsement this winter. Tbe preliminary steps towards an effec tive organization were taken at Daven port last night, where a meeting of repre scntative citizens of Davenport and Rock Island was held in tbe Business Men's association rooms. Among those pres ent from Rock Island were Fred Hass, Henry Carse, E. H. Guyer, Howard Wells, Dr. J. W. Stewart. R. Crampton, W. S. Knowlton, Dr. W. A. Paul and J. J. Reimers. Mr. W. F. Rosa was elected chairman and J. B. Phillips, secretary. Hon. J. H. Murphy addressed the meeting at some length on tbe importance of an or ganized effort to present the matter fully before congress, and to push Hennepin's claims for federal recognition with re newed activity. He deprecated tbe apathy his Davenport friends were mani festing in not attending tbe meeting in larger numbers, and complimented Rock Island on its good representation. The Davenport papers, he said, had not even published tbe strong endorsement tbe canal bad received in tbe waterways con vention held in Cincinnati in October, and if more interest was not manifested here, it was not likely much could be accomplished. In regard to Hennepin's chances be fore congress, however. Mr. Murphy thought they were never brighter than today. There was a friendly feeling if not a warm interest in tbe project both in the house and senate. The speaker of tbe house would undoubtedly be favora ble to it, as all the candidate were avowed advocates of tbe measure. It was also very probsble that the presi dent would say a kind word in his forth coming message, and it was pretty near certain that Congressman Henderson would be made chairman of the commit tee on railways and canals, w hich would be a big point in its favor. When Mr. Murphy closed by stating tbat be had abiding faith in the ultimate success of the Hennepin canal, and that be proposed to go to Washington next week and stay there six months if necessary, at his own expense, laboring in tbe good cause, be was heartily applauded. Upon motion a committee, consisting of Hon. J. H. Murphy, of Daveaport, and Fred Hass and Henry Carse, of thia city, was appointed to select an executive committee of fifteen, three from each city. The committee reported the fol lowing names: Davenport J. H. Murphy, J. S. M. Eldridge, W. Wylie. M. L. Marks. J F. Ross. Rock Island II. C. Connelly, Fred W. Hurst, John Hass, Henry Carse. E. Crubaugh. Molinc C. H. Deere, S. S. Davis, A. Wright, H. A. Barnard, W. C. Ben nett. Tbe meeting then adjourned, after it was announced tbat the executive com mittee would meet at the Improvement associat:on rooms in Rock Island at 3 o'clock Thursdav afternoon for the pur pose of selecting an executive committee.

Tbe Rodman Rides have decided upon Dec. 5th as the time of tbeir grand opening ball ef their new armory. An effort will be made to make tbe occasion one of tbe social events of the winter season. Officer Mulqueen arrested anothtr transient mercbaut yesterday for pur suing bis avocation without the munici pal permit. His name was Francis L. Cane, a peddler of galvanic belts, ink. etc ,and he was compelled to pay a fine of 95 to Magistrate Wivlll. The cold wave predicted by tbe signal service yesterday did not materialize in Rock Island, though it came a far east as Omaha, where it registered 2 below zero tbis morning. The winds then shifting and carried it down tbe Mis souri valley. No complaints are to be beard . Chief Clerk Bloom, of the Kock Island house, has adopted an original scheme for booming Chicago's claims to tbe world's fair of '92. After every guest registering Chicago he writes "1893," and requests them to so register themselves everywhere they go. The plan Is quite likely to be adopted by all commercial travellers. Some beautiful scenic work csn be seen at the Crown dining hall.

Tbe Moline Ministerial association met at the Y. M. C A. rooms in tbat city at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. A pro gramme of Sunday night temperance meetings was arranged. The order of the day was taken up, and "Tbe Moral Stat us of Moline." discussed bv Messrs. Lindeblad, Morgan, Albro and Hess. Tbe status was decided to be pretty low in many respects, tbe Ditpatch say.

He revived though and will probably re cover, no ia iweniy-nve years or age ana single, tie bad a bad case of too much prohibition whisky. Tbe railroad excursion which the may or, a number of the aldermen and mem here of the Improvement association and other citizens were permitted to enjoy through the sourtesy of Division Agent Hack, of tbe C, B.

Tbe excursionists were conveyea to ftionoe via a special car on tbe Burlington road and met by a Moline committee, and the ride over the electric road in tbe elegant new coaches proved a delightful trip in every way. All were highly pleased with tbe road and fully complimented the company on Its enter prise. Tbe company will probably make application for rights of way into Rock Island between this and spring by some route other tban tbe one properly refused by tbe council be fore, and thia lime by a route that tbe municipal body will feel that it can consistently grant.
