The committee started out site in

the former class works and the Kai-
ble & Stengel brewery down town
and the other buildings such as the
o. s school, etc.. suggested at the
meeting yesterday afternoon.
Beady to Move.
Mr. Peaslee stated to an Argus
representative at the conclusion of
yesterday's meeting that he had
closed up his industry at Pecatonica
preparatory to moving to Rock Isl
and that the machinery was being
taken down and packed and that 40
families, aggregating 100 peiple,
would come here at once as soon as
the factory location was determined
upon and the company formally in
corporated. He seemed much grali-
liea with the way Kock Island had
taken hold of the proposition and
is pleased with the city and its peo
ple, and he realizes and appreciates
the advantages it possesses as a man-
ulacturing and distributing point.
Mr. Peaslee said also that he had al
ready booked $15,000 spring orders.
Other New Factories.
Incidental to the discussion at yes
terday afternoon's meeting, came up
the matter of other new industries
which may be brought to Rock Isl
and, and as have been alluded to
from time to time in The Argus, and
the assurance was given by some of
the gentlemen present in a position
to know, that within a very short
time at least two entirely new facto
ries in addition to the shoe company
and the Lewis Roolins company
would be located here, and one of
these, coming from an Illinois town
at that, will not ask a cent of sub
scription or require a nickel of bo

a positiveness of manner that carried
a sense of infinite satisfaction to all

ANOTHER CUT COMING.
That Seem to be the Impression as to the
J he beer war status remains just
as it was yesterday, but there is a
feeling of uneasiness among those
who represent the various brewing in
terests that promises a break some
where at any time, and when it comes
it will be attended by a scramble to
follow suit, although the Rock I si
and Brewing company declares it
will go no lower than it has already
rrom talks with the local managers
for the Chicago, the Mendota, and
the Schlitz, it is reasonably safe
to predict another cut tomorrow
morning. In fact, each is now ac
cusing some other of going below the
f3 per barrel rate, which was reached
yesterday, and all now seem to be
waiting to see what tho other fellow
is going to do. Two of the managers
told The Argus today that ttrev
knew the price would be down to $2
per barrel by tomorrow morning.
but that they were not going to make
the first break. But," said one,
"we will cut if any the others do;
we will stay with this thing to the
end." And the other agreed with
If the price keeps on descending,
the rival breweries will soon either
be supplying the drinking fountains
with their respective brands of the
amber fluid or taking the place of
the pop corn venders with a barrel
always on tap and begging the public

such a manner as to admit ol the
entrance or exit of a prisoner with
out the other inmates knowing what
is going on.
Col. Jonathan Merriam, of Taze
