in on an ilinsi rat d :ire article in
tin- Sundav"s Chicago Chronicle. It
is the lirl"of a series of writeup.i of
the three c-i:ics. The introduction
The cit of Uock I-ilanal in this
state will prove a happy surprise to
any oik? who knew the place in the
old days, then the business of the Mis
sissippi valley wa all done on the Mis
sissippi river, when a fleet of steam
boats was in elTeet what the railroad
train now is t lie? whole thin;;, as re
garded both by the freighter and the
traveler. Some there are, doubtless,
who will remember Kock Island as a
pretty ronjjli titer town, but this is a
memory that even a haty vi-it there
todav would completely obliterate.
From Ijein the rouh river town
that it once most certainly was it has
now to present to those who arrive
there from Chicago or New York or
whatever metropolitan city, every
comfort and elegance that is com
monly lookeil for by travelers of ex
perience and relineiuenl.
'Most of the towns and cities on
thejireat river have in the past 'juar
ter or third of a century uiit!erroiin a
wonderful transformation. Few of
them have the same outward a.-pre's
thev once had n.s re.-pects their main
features, and the busy people one sees
on their streets ar- pursuing similar
ends to those pursued by busy people
in all the trading and manufacturing
cities of the country. Wealth has
aeciiniiilated in the more favorably
located river cities as fast or faster
than it lias in many other imp rtaiit
places, and liberal portions of this
wealth have been and are bein ex
pended, more unjjrudinjjly perhaps
than almost anywhere else, in pro
viding things of and for the mind
.-chools and ehufhes and clubs and
i?i extending and beau l if i n in hab
ited areas. Those old river iik.ii who
had their huiii!Ie homes on the levee
were generous-hearted fellows a.id
cheerfully parted with their lust dol
lar to obtain for themselves or their
families thinjrs which pleaseiL Today
a vimilar spirit of liberality animates
the people who live, not on the levees,
but on the iiue streets and avenues
and who are m tnife.-tin; their eager
ness to excel both in the elejrance of
t heir private dwellings :ind tnevrran
ilcur of their public buildings. 'l'!ie-e
observations and r llect ions are ex-
t remel v appropriate to t he subject of
this article Kock Island city."
Al vantage I well I pun.
A few of the extracts from the
write up follow :
They speak to this day of harbors
on the river, and all admit that one of
the iinest of these harbors in other
words, easy landings -is at Kock Isl
and. What it is at the present time it
was in the olden time. For t his reason,
if there had been no other, all the boats
tied up. and did business at this place.
But there was another reason there
were no white inhabitants on the Iowa
side, where now is the rich and thriv
ing city of Davenport."'
Rock Island is now a railroad cen
ter and a city of e.xten.-i ve manufac
tures. It is also a money center and
a city with a j;reat deal of trade. It
has "many institutions of education
and religion and it supports them all
most liberally. Its streets and ave
nues are line then- are none liner an y
where and care and considerable
amountsof money have been ln-stowed
upon its parks and driveways. Its
social elements are well discriminated,
and society is organized in the fashion
that is most approved of in much
larger cities. In a word. Kock Island
is a city."
'The population of Rock Island
is placed at and this is deemed
bv the best informed to be a conserva
tive estimate. There are very few
retired rich men there and not many
impecunious idlers. There seems
to be enough business for all and
nearly all are in business. The ''
factories are running at full capacity
and at least three otLer factories are
said to le about to locate there."
The steam railroads, consider
ing the number that have come into
Kock Island, and the .V) trains that
pass dally through the city offer the
least K)ssible menace to persons in
private vehicles aad to pedestrians.
A stranger may be in the town for
days U -Tether and never see a rail
road train or hear one whistle. Hut
the electric car is everywhere. There
is no other city, do matter of what
size, in this country so well supplied
with electric transportation as is Kock

said: "The island was always leauti
ful nature made it so preeminently.
And at last the government, by a l".i

employment of men of the best taste,
made it still more beautiful. The
shops are monstrous in size, bnt as
much attention as possible was paid
to their architecture, so that they
miht not repeat the uirly featuies of
the ordinary manufacturing town.
The native forest, which nearly covers
the island, has been preserved for the
most part, but still here and there are
seen the traces of the landscape gar

miles lung and two miles wide, and

to a safe height above the river, it is
