The First Factory For the New
Site Contracted For.
C0STRACT WAS EXECUTED TODAY.
A Bran Goods Maaofactory Provided For,

Negotiations Pending To Briar. More
Mra to the Commealty.
Rock Island would like to have the
new manufacturing site to be known
as East Moline nearer its door than
it is, but it does not begrudge Mo
line the advantage of closer proximi
ty. The people here, the thinking
people, at least, realize that in this
community the benefit to one is the
concern of all. Hence the advan
tages to come from united action and
consolidation of interests, the reali
zation of which the Moline papers
will wake up to some day and then the
two cities will come together and
staud together. In the meantime
we can only rejoice in every visible,
as well as tangible sign of added ac
tivity within the lines which bind as a
commercial and industrial neighbor
hood. It is this spirit that we may
view with satisfaction, the first sub
stantial evidence today of the suc
cess of the East Moline company's
manufacturing site project.
The First Factory.
Today the contract was closed for
the first factory with Lee J. Mittin
ger, of Cleveland, who represents the
second generation of people whose
lives have been devoted to manufac
turing enterprises. The result will
be the bringing to the locality of a
manufactory of brass goods, plumb
ers1 supplies and stamped ware.
The emergency buildings are to be
erected at once. One will be two
stories high, and with dimensions of
40x150; one one story high and with
dimensions of 50x50. Then there
will be an addition to these, a foun
dry and safety-brick vault for the
keeping of .patterns. The industry
will employ 100 men at the start,
and negotiations are pending which
will likely be closed in a day or two
for another institution giving em.
ployment to 400 men. R. R. Bemiss,
the hustling town site promoter, has
brought about this condition of af
fairs, and is making good his prom
ises to build up a busy center.

sending out a pamphlet outlining
the advantages it possesses and its
inducements to factories.

- H.'X. Stone started today to com
plete his canvass for the dew direc
tory. The territory yet to be can
vassed is that portion from the river
south to Third avenue and Six
teenth street, east to Nineteenth.
As this, is the principal business
portion,, it has been left until the
last in order to allow for the changes
which usually occur this time ot
year. In the meantime a. record of
alt vacant houses and buildings and
prospective changes have been kept,
which will be recanvassed. In addi
tion solicitors are kept busy watch
ing removals and changeYin busi
ness. A large number of compilers
are arranging the information, which
is a piece of architectural work and
can only be done by those who are
educated in its many intricate de
tails. A large number of people
think in order to publish a directory
all that is necessary, .is to'go round
and take the names and hand them
to the printer. Such, however, is
not correct. Every slip . has to be
gone over and compared with its
duplicate. If, there is any difference
a solicitor is dispatched (0 get it
correct. Differences occur by the
different . spelling of names. For in
stance, at the home the name is
given "Schmidt" and "Smith" at the
place of business at the place of
business the given-name is given
"John" and at home "William." "J"
or. people who are not familiar with
the numbers make a ' mistake at
their place of business, and) there are
divers other causes which make the
direotory man lots of worry. After
all the work is. compiled vtibe same
has to be checked from the last book,
so if a name which appeared in the
last book is not found search has to
be made to ascertain the cause. It
may be that they have left the city,
or they are dead or have moved from
some territory uncanvassed to some
Mr. Stone reports there are some
firms here who refuses to allow his
canvassers to go through their places
to get the names of the help the
only reason for not doing so, it takes
their time. This is wrong. Any
citizen who is interested in the wel
fare of . their city should willingly
lend his assistance in a matter of this
kind. Some people think that the
information can be secured at their
homes. There are a large number of
workingmen who room, and it is im
possible to find them at home; also
wbo board in boarding houses and
the hostess and the proprietors really
do not know their full names. Now,
unless the canvasser gets them where
they work they are liable to be
missed. Mr. Stone reports that Mo
line has done better this year than
heretofore. He has secured a larger
number of orders for books, as well
as advertising. Rock Island should
and doubtless will do its share.
Mr. Stone has given us a beauti
fully printed, as well as metropolitan-like
directory, and far more com
plete, and accurate than anything
that we have ever had in the past.
The compiling a4 publishing of a
directory necessitates several months
of Jabor, besides a large outlay of
capital. It is no fake or scheme, bat
it is one of the foremost necessities.
If oar business men had no directory
they would find that in order to be
promot in deli vei ing their goods it
won ki.' require a large amount of
time in hunting the people, as well
as would necessitate increasing their
help in addition. The directory is
valuable in keeping the strangers

If we were without a directory, then,

GREAT WILDEST WEST.
Beaaarkabte Afsrecatloa of oarage Cree
ladlaas, P looser Attractions.
In Beveridge's Montana Wildest
West show, which is announced to
exhibit in Rock Island next Thurs
day; we are promised something not
ably and essentially different from
and far superior to 'the common, so
called "Wild West" absurdities,
whose few degenerate Indians are
borrowed, by Uncle Sam's permis
sion, from the nearest reservation,
and whose professional" cowboys
make a leathery splurge in stunning
high-top boots; something no gen.
nine cowboy was ever known to wear.
To begin with, there are more In
dians with this show than all other
exhibitions combined can muster,
and they areef the "untutored mind"
kind the poet Kings of. They con
stitute the tribal remnant of the
great and dreaded Cree nation who
so long and defiantly reigned in the
wilderness of British North America
by genuine squatter sovereignty
title, until the fate of war. as mani
fested in the Ricl rebellion, drove
them across our northern border, po
litical refugees; over whom no
government exercises control, and,
in very fact, a people without
a country. A practical spirit of
philanthropy has succeeded in mak
ing them directly interested partici
pants in this great show, where they
will be seen in their village of fifty
wigwams, and in the grand border
arena, giving wonderfully vivid, pic
turesque and forceful illustrations of
their tierce battles, marvelous eques
trian akill and strange and savage
ceremonies and pastimes. They also
form a conspicuous and barbarically
splendid feature of the daily pvJblie
parade. Associated with' these na
ture's genuine "400" will be seen a
congress of crack shots, led by Capt.
A. H Bogardns, the champion wing
shot of the world; a regular round
up of rough riders, cowboys, scouts
and famous border women; the buck
ing Belgrade bull, by riding whom
anyone can pocket $200; the cham
pion Abdaliah troupe of Arabian per
formers; noted female midair gym
nasts, and a big border hippodrome,
f (resenting Indians, Arabs, cowboys,
ady jockeys and charioteers, plains
men, mustangs, mules and ponies in
various kinds of daring, exciting and
novel races. The prelude to this
huge and hilarious Wildest West
holiday will be a monster parade pa
geant oi the plains.
A rale of one fare for the round
trip will be made for three grand
homeseeker's excursions via the
Burlington, Cedar Rapids and North
ern railway. - Tickets at this rate
will be sold May 21 and June 11 to
all points on this line in northwest
ern lowa, southwestern Minnesota
and South Dakota, west of and in
cluding Iowa Falls. Tickets will
also be sold on these dates at above
rates to points in the following terri
tory: Alt points in Arkansas, Color
ado, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, Wy

important stations in Idaho, New
Mexico, Utah and southwest Mis

A Remarkable Core.
Mrs. H. B Adams, 1609 Wabash
avenue, Chicago, says: "I had a
scrofulous taint of the blood from
childhood, which, however, remained
dormant.-An -ulcer began, on the
side of the nose, having all the ap
pearances of a most malignant can
cer. The agony of mind I suffered
cannot be described as I contem
plated the progress of such a malig
nant disease. Finally I was induced
to try Foley's Sarsaparilla. It ap
peared to neutralize the poison in
the blood. The growth of the ulcer
ceased. 1 be diseased tissues in the
bottom and edges of the sore seemed
to loosen and the natural flesh to
take its place. No part of the dis
ease remains." M. F. Bahnsen's
