upon them for treatment between now

not only of consultation, examination
and advice, but also of all mipor sur
The object in pursuing this course

POLES ARE TOO THICK
Being: Promiscuously Erected on
City's Prominent Thor
oughfares. FIFTH AVENUE LIKE A WILDERNESS
Crowing Evil That Should Be
ately. An evil that is railing forth general
complaint In Rock Island, and justly
so. is the promiscuous erection on the
principal thoroughfares of the city of
ples to support electric wires of var
ious character. So thick are they be
coming on Moline avenue that a peep
up that thorongbfare reminds one of a
strip of pine land in the fall after tbe
fi 1 age has been stripped by Jack
Frost. Unless some measure are
soon taken to prevent further occu
pancy of tbat avenue by poles, the
stringer coming into town is liable
to find himself lost in a wilderness.
Instead of decreasing as it should
be, now that Rock Island is daily
growing more into a metropolis this
evil is growing, and unless it is
checked pretty soon, these white up
rights will be thickly planted in every
block in tbe city, and then it will be a
job of no small proportions to have
them removed. .
In the larger municipalities all
wires are placed under ground. It is
required by ordinance, and corpora
tions must comply or tbey are not al
lowed to conduct their business. Rock
Island bas long since graduated from
tbe village class. It is a citv that is
rapidly growing its population is in
creasing and its commercial impor
tance is enhancing. It prides Itself on
its beautiful public thorongbfare. It
spends large sums annually in main
taining them, and it is indeed a shame
that corporations are permitted to de
face their appearance and impair their
Room Getting; Scares.
The day is not far distant when
Rock Island will be confronted with a
condition unless remedial steps are
taken immediately where there will
be no opportunity to see from one
property line to tbe other. All the room
will be occupied if tbe poles continue
going up at the present rate. So it is
well tbat the municipality take some
action at an early date looking to the
checking of this unnecessary usurpa.
lion of the public highways.
The time will come when all com
panies will be obliged to place their
wires under ground or confine them
to the alleys exclusively. in this city,
as in all large cities, a'nd thy may
as well begiu now as later.
COMPANY A GIVES BALL.
Second Anniversary of Departure for the
Thursday, April 26. 1898, members
of Company A gathered at their head
quarters in response to an order to
Jirepare to leave for Springfield and
ater for the front to do their part in
driving the Spanish from the islands
of Cuba and Porto Rico. That was 3
gloomy day in many Rock Island
homes that were sending away sons
that would probably never returo
alive. The second anniversary of
that memorable day was observed
last night with a grand military ball
at Armory hall, where tbe boys in
blue and "their friends gathered la
large nnmbers. The hall presented a
beautiful and impressive scene. At
either end there was an improvised
camp, suggestive cf tbe homes tbat
sheltered the boys when they were in
Torto Rico. The decorations were
red, white and blue. The south wall
was covered with a huge btnner, in
the center of which hung a likeness of

"I consider Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy the best in the world for
bronchitis." says William Savory, of
Warrington. England. "It has saved
my wife's life, she having been a
martyr to bronchitis for over six
years, being most of the time con
fined to ber bed. She is now quite
well." It is a great pleasure to
the manufacturers of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy to be able to publish
testimonials of this character. Tbey
show that great good is being done,
pain and suffering relieved and valu
able lives restored to health and hap-
iness bv this remedy. It is for sale

THE STRIKE MAY END SOON.
Colon Carpenters la Davenport Hay Re
turn to Work In a Few Days.
The carpenters' strike in Davenport
has assumed such shape as is believed
will cause its end before many days,
according to tbe statements of inter
ested parlies on both sides. The con
tractors have at last recognized the
union as a working body, worthy of
consideration. This condition is
what the carpenters have been
striving for all along, and is the
first step toward full and com.
plete settlement of all difficulties.
This fact, however, remains to be
firoven. The contractors are saying
ittle in regard to the meeting of the
Master Builders' association Tuesday
night, which was one of great import
ance. Thev admit that tbe strike
conditions were discussed at length
and that a plan of procedure was out
lined. What that plan is was not
stated in specino terms, ui n was
learned tbat tne contractors nave us
cided to modify their doctrine of "no
compromise" and insert in lieu of the
most stringent parts a policy which
will demand of the union carpenters a
large number of concessions.
