"There are rumors in the air that
are of striking interest here, and most
of the people who hear them are im
pressed with the belief that there is
some foundation for them," says the
Davenport Democrat, "and that they

of them is that the Chicago & North

has tasted the quality of tri-city busi

here, and it is ready to get into a
light with its competitors, if there is
any need in that direction, in order to
get the fine traffic that there is here

the Milwaukee wish to allow the
Northwestern a place on their joint

sibility. As for the Crescent bridge,
it is understood that there is no dan
ger that the Northwestern, or any
other road, can be shut off that struc
ture if It can reach the approaches to
it. The charter gives all roads that
can get to it the right to use it, and
it is not understood that the deal that
has been made in any manner viti

Some lait History.
It will be remembered that when
the D., R. I. & N. W. began surveying
for its proposed extension to Peoria
the Northwestern bought a town in
order to make a short cut from its
main line into Peoria. This was the
first evidence that the Northwestern
management was not in thorough ac
cord with the owners of the Tri-City
route. It has lately been said that,
while the general impression pre
vailed that the Northwestern would
eventually control the Tri-City and
that the company seems to have had
practically an option on the- property
for a vear, Mr. Gates became dis
trustful and unloaded on the Milwau
kee, the latter becoming the possessor
of rights here in Rock Island of ines
timable value at a small outlay. The
stories about the Northwestern en
tering the community are all well
enough to tell, but they seem too good
to be true. If the company really
contemplated coming this way
it would not have permitted the Mil
waukee to get the inside track on
the new road property. Still, if
the ordinances under which the Mil
waukee is operating the Tri-City route
and Crescent bridge are worth the pa
per they are written on, at least so far
as Rock Island is concerned, the North
western or some other independent
line ought yet to be able to effect an
entrance into the three cities over

TERMS OF PEACE
ARE NOW SIGNED
The controversy between Silberstein
Bros., of Davenport, and the Tri-Citv
Labor congress over Sunday closing
was finally ended today, when the
firm signed an agreement to close its
store every Sunday hereafter. The
following statement has been issued
by the congress:
To the Public and the tnends of
Organized Labor: Whereas the mis-
lderstanding which has existed be
tween organized labor and Silberstein
Bros., of Davenport, Iowa, has now
been thoroughly investigated and am
icably adjusted to the satisfaction of
all parties concerned.
Therefore it is resoivea tnat we,
the Tri-City Labor congress, recognize
the fact that Silberstein Bros, have
always been friendly to labor, and
that they be put on the labor fair list
and that the firm of Silberstein Bros,
is worthy of the patronage of labor
and its friends.
"Resolved, that the foregoing be
published in the Tri-City Unionist
and the tri-city papers."

DR. MYERS' POSITION
AS TO HEALTH OFFICE.
Rock Island, April 10. Editor Ar
gus: Last evening's Argcs credits
me with being an applicant for the
position of health commissioner of the
city of Rock Island. Since I am not
an applicant, and have not been an
applicant, I trust you will do me the
kindness to state through the columns
of your paper that you were mistaken.
I do not ask the correction because
aspiring to such a position is not a
laudable aspiration, but because, when
the appointment shall have been made,
the public would cast undue reflections
upon my political standing. Very
James F. Myers.
The Aug us fears that Dr. Myers
has taken a different view of the mat
ter to which he refers than it was the
purpose to convey. The doctor's
name was included in the list of can.
didates for health commissioner
under the Knox administration with
no intention of creating the impres
sion that a "candidate" need neces
sarily b) an "applicant" In the strict
sense of the word.

ADVISES CITIZENS TO
ACT ON WATER QUESTION.
Rock Island, April 9. Editor Ar
gus. I read in the report of the do
ings of the city council that the 30
inch intake pipe at a place near the
shore was cracked, making an open
ing large enough to admit a hand.
The health committee suggested that
the intake pipe be reiaid and the
inner wall at the waterworks be sur
rounded by another well to prevent
The reports were received and re
ferred to the waterworks committee
to report back to the council. It is
coldly asserted that this waterworks
committee has known for some time
that the intake pipe was broken. Can
we hope now that anything will be
done to stop the flood of sewage into
the water furnished the. city?
Gross negligence has caused suffer
ing on every side. Let the citizens
look the matter squarely in the face.
We have an allliction here caused, as
all medical men everywhere say, by
poisoned water or food. We have
had the water examined and it is
found full of rottenness and poison.
The community is advised to boil all
water used. Nothing is done to make
the water supplv better. When the
health commissioner advises action.
repairs, etc., his resolutions are passed
up and down in the council to the
waterworks committee to be returned
to the council. Meanwhile splendid
young men and dear little children are
sickening and dying. It is time the
citizsns of the town took this matter
op. Hold a public meeting and urge
the city council to bigia repairs of
those broken pipes iand wells to do
what any sensible person would do if
tne pipe supplying his house was taK
ing sewage. M. A. L.
lhe foregoing communication, re
ceived today by TnE Argcs, contains
many truths and wise recommenda
tions that the council may well heed.
But it is gratifying to state that
typhoid and other forms of disease
that have prevailed in Rock Island
during the winter are abating and
the city is again recovering its
usual healthy condition. This is in a
measure due to the precautions that
have been strictly lived up to and
should be continued till all doubt as
to the purity of the water is removed.

than when applied to clothing. If it just misses a good
