Assignment of a Young Institution.
SIXTEEN MONTHS' EXISTENCE.
The Kork IslanJ Heating I'lunblBg
Company Find Itself an t'nnrontable
Enterprise and Ceaeer, to Scuro It,
A general assignment of the Rock
Island Heating and Plumbing com
pany was made this morning. The
action was not taken because of
pressure of creditors, but practically
in view of the discouraging business
prospects and while the institu
tion was in a condition to adjust its
claims satisfactorily. The liabilities
do not exceed $2,000, while the as
sets will aggregate about f 3.000. and
therefore the company is in a posi
tion to dispose of its obligations.
The affairs have been placed in the
bands of T. 1!. Davis, as assignee,
who will finish all incompleted con
tracts and other business and dispose
of the stock according to to his own
Sixteen Month Old.
The company was organized -10
months ago withT. F. Burke as presi
dent, John Joers vice president and
Krnst Wagner secretary ami treas
urer, under favorable circumstances.
Unfortunately the enterprise did not
prove a remunerative one. and pros
H!cts not being of an encouraging
nature Mr. Wagner has hail the as
signment alternative under consid
eration for some time, prefering to
adopt such action before affairs
reached such a slate ns to give food
for the belief that insolvency was
inevitable. Mr. Wagner received
the cooperation of another member
in his view anil the desire of the ma
jority was prosecuted. The company
was under heavy financial obliga
tions to Mr. Wagner and to properly
insure himself and partners and
creditors as well, he encouraged the
idea. The settlement of the com
pany's affairs will end Mr. Wagner's
idcntilication with the plumbing
business, his intention being to de
vote bis time to his other interests.
Whether the remainder of the com
pany will reorganize is a matter of
con jecture for the present.
Adair Pleasants, who drew up the
assignment, gives assurance that the
company is fully able to satisfy all

that capacity he was . encountered
by the man who delegated him with
the duty of delivering the animal to
another party and made a prisoner.
In the afternoon Ike sauntered into
the horse-shoeing establishment of

Bland asked Ike to deliver a custo

later and was astonished to behold
the traitorous Ike racing around in a
careless manner, with the animal al
