Rock Island Beginning to
Good Results of the
HEW lAOTOBY TO LOCATE HEEE
Attractive Site for Manufacturing:
Purposes Soon to Be Available-Lower
Results are already apparent of
the efforts recently pat forth in be
half of Bock Island's commercial and
industrial advancement in the an
noancement that a new industry will
shortly move to the city. This ac
quisition, and much of the benefits to
follow ii this direction, will be due to
the efforts of President F. W. Bahnsen,
of the Rock Island Club, and the par
ticalarly persistent and diligent work
of V. II. Marshall and other members
of the club's committee on manufac
tures. The industry referred to has grown
from a small beginning. Its progress
ha9 been rapid and it was seeking just
such facilities as Rock Ibland has to
offer.and which were intelligently and
forcibly presented to the officers of
the concern by the Rock Island Club
Fine Factory Site.
In the same connection it can be
said that the manufactures committee
has not been idle in the movement to
open up territory with advantages
attractive to factory locations, and
before many months one of the finest
sites for these purposes in the west
will be available within the city lim
its of Rock Island.
It will mean much to the industrial
advancement of the community, as
facilities will be offered that will
make it an inducement for manufac
turing establishments to come here,
and may likewise induce local capital
to further invest in the factory line.
To Discuss Lower Road.
The proposed new lower road fig
ures in the general plan to forward
the city's value and importance as an
industrial center, and tonight this
project will be given a lift at a meet
ing of the Retail Merchants' associa
tion, before which it will be made a
special order for discussion.
lhe Kock island Club committee
appointed on the lower road to attend
tonight s meeting of the Merchants
association consists" of W. S. McCombs,
L. Simon and G. A. McDonald.

Trouble at Steel Works.

for the fourth district of the Amalga

assist in the settlement of the dis
agreement between the men on the

and the company. In the adjustment
of the wages of the tonnage men, the
pay of the men was cut, and as all
the men on this mill are paid bv the
day and not under the association
scale, the men quit. Saturday those
who were offered their pay "checks
found that not only had they been
cut, some as high as $2 a week, but
that the reduction dated back to Nov
1. They refused to accept this as full
