RIGHT KIND OF SPIRIT
That Shown By Moline in Offer
ing Opportunities to
SHOBTEnXG AVENUES TO THE CITY
Which Implies a Suggestion to
Rock Island to Be Do
The committee of the Moline Busi
ness Men's association in charge of
the road that city proposes to build
south from the Rock river bridge, is
working with commendable energy
The route intended to be followed
lies r.outh of the bridge to a junction
witn the Knoxville road. The right
of way for the entire distance has
been secured and the preliminary
canvass for funds beun. It is cal
culated that the new route will
shorten the distance to Moline for the
country to the south by several miles
and will besides afford a road that
can be relied upon at all seasons.
The effect of the free bridge at Rock
river can already be noticed in the di
version of a large part of the coal
trade that formerly came to Rock Is
land by way of Milan. The same ef
feet is undoubtedly produced on ordi.
u&ry travel, although it is less notice
able. V hen the further ac vantage of
several miles less travel to Moline is
secured by the new road, the defection
of rural trade from Rock Island to Mo
line will be seriously felt.
A Forcible Example for Kock Island.
This manifestation of an enterpris
ing spirit on the part of Moline busi
ness men should serve as a reminder
that Rock Island has a similar enter
prise on foot and with much more at
stake. While it is scarcely proper to
envy Moline the award of that for
which she makes a fair bid, sound
business policy demands that Rock
Island offer at least equal induce
ments to the trade that would natur
ally come this way by the opening of
the proposed direct road to the lower
end and the attendant abolition of
the antiquated toll privileges over
Rock river bridges.

Delkaao Gives Marvelous Exhibition at
Rock Island Clnb.
Delkano, who defies the ordinary
methods of restraining the subjects of
the law's vigilance, gave an entertain
ing and altogether wonderful exhibi
tion of his skill at the Rock Island
Club last evening. The event was
provided through the club's entertain
ment committee and was heartily en
joyed by the members, who turned
out in large numbers to witness it.
With the presence on the platform
with him of Officers Goff, Schmid and
Thode. of the police force, and Deputy
sheriff Andrews and a Will county
efficial, who were privileged not only to
apply the handcuffs, but to scrutinize
closely his every move. Delkano, in
a twinklingalmost, freed himself from
handcuffs of various descriptions
which were securely fastened about
his wrists by the officers of the law
Delkano not only used his own cuffs
which were carefully examined, but
those fnrnished by the police and rep
resentative of the sheriff. The hand
cuffs having been applied, it was
only for Delkano to step into his cabi
net, which was a simple curtained
enclosure which all were invited to
inspect, and come out with his hands
free. After a number of feats of this
kind, Delkano was handcuffed again
placed in a sack which was securely
tied at the top with ropes, the
knots of which were sealed.
and then lifted into a box
which was locked and bound and
knoted in innumerable ways. The
box was then carried into the cabinet
At this instant, the lady assistant
came forward and asked some one in
the audience to count three, but be
fore this was accomplished Delkano
appeared on the platform free ana
the lady had disappeared. The box
was then brought forward, and af.er
the locks and ropes had been removed
the seal on the sack was found un
broken, but removing it and untying
the ropes, the lady came forward.
Delkano also gave an exhibition of
the magic art, of which he is likewise
It is said that the police and one or
two newspapers in Davenport made
elaborate plans to beat Delkano at his
own game Wednesday evening. I hey
manacled him in several positions from
which it seemed impossible for him
to extract himself, and some of those
present offered to bet liberal sums of
that he could not get free. But he
was equal to every test and the only
reason that no money changed hands
was that there were no takers for the

This is no surprise to those who fol

On his return to the stable late tho

was useless to resent the trick played
upon him, he said to the owner: '"Look
