There are some pleasures that must

can't imagine them! But once try
them and you want them! One pleas
ure is the EMPEROR MAN S SHOE
No need to go into an analysis of its con
struction you are not a shoemaker!
But you know that yon like it. And
that is enough.
You detect instantly a certain air of
quality, lhere is nothing common
place about it. It is unmistakably an
aristocratic shoe, made of soft, pliant,
extra-high-grade leather. Every part
of it is flexible, so that the foot is not
cramped; the step is easy the tread

SURPRISING TO THE EAST
What Luis Jackson. Milwaukee
Road's Industrial Com nits- .
fcloner; Hay. -
Liiis Jackson, industrial commis
sioner of the C, if. & St. P. road,
makes some strong predictions re
garding the manufacturing future of
he middle west. For example, he de-
lares that the Moline-Uock Inland-
Davenport district will soon hare a
population of 250,000, and that ulti
mately the Chicago-Milwaukee dis-
rict will rival Pittsburg as. a manu
The development in recent vears in
the manufacturing interests in the
territory west from Chicnco to the
Mississippi river and from Mimienno-
is on the north to St. Louis on the
south has been, accordinir to Mr.
Jackson, sufficiently phenomenal to
warrant his rosy prophecies. Among
other things Mr. .Jackson's report
"A new manufacturing center is
springing up west of Chicago on the
Mississippi river, which promises to
jump from a population of 100,000 to
250,00 witltin a few years and which
has the markets of Omaha. St. Paul.
St. Louis and Chicago within easy
reach. This is the Moline-Roek Isl
and-Davenport district. It has coal
at hand. Moline has long been the
world's plow center, and now the dis
trict bids fair to become one of the
world's largest buggy, carriage and
wagon manufacturing centers. The
Velie Carriage company has just com
pleted an immense buggy plant; the
Bettendorf companv has its first larce
buildings up on a 30-acre site for the
manufacture of steel railway cars;
the Wright Buggy Body company has
located a hne structure: the Foster
Implement company is building large
works, and a Syracuse, N. Y., firm is
negotiating for a site.
Milwaukee' Confidence In Community.
"The St. Paul road has such confi
dence in this territory that it is con
structing u cut-off direct from Moline
to its Kansas City line. Kansas City
s another town that will command
the trade of the further southwest.
The city has a great variety of small
manufacturing plants that are grow-
ng year by year and are being rap-
dly added to.
Milwaukee is pushing along phe
nomenally in manufacturing, and now
ikes rank as the second machinery
manufacturing center in the we$t. It
has lately secured a new coke manu
facturing plant, which will cost $100.-
000 and which will nut the Chicago
and" Mlwaukec manufacturing district
ultimately more on a parity with
ttsburg. This will be the result be
cause this industry will lead to new
experimentation, development and
mastery of the problem of the west
manufacturing its own coke. Mark
Ilanna is interested in this plant.
Activities at Other Points
"Owing to the fact that 75 per cent
of all the iron ore used in the United
States comes from the region north
of Milwaukee, the Lake Superior dis
trict, it was decided to make the coke
nearer the ore. All the motive ma
chinery recently installed on the New
York elevated roads was made in Mil
waukee. At Menominee, Mich., the
Menominee River Sugar company is
building an $SOO,00d plant, which will
be one of the largest in the west It
is expected to draw numerous set
tlers to farm lands in upper Michi
gan. "A plant to cover 12 acres of ground
in Minneapolis is to be used for man
ufacturing structural steel and Cor
liss engines. At Cedar Kapuls Doug
las & Co. arc constructing a large
starch works, and at Kansas City sew
er pipe works are being built."
Mr. Jackson mentions a large num
ber of industries that are being es
tablished at other points on the St.
Paul road, and he declares lhat Chi
cagoans would be astonished at the
changed agricultural conditions in
the square of territory from Chicago
to Milwaukee, thence to La Crosse,
if? T..'- t
' Absolutely Puro
then Fouth to Savanna and back toj
Chicago. This region , is one vast
dairying, cucumber, cabbage and to
bacco growing area. It supplies more
than half of the United States with
pickles, saner kraut and "binder" to'
baceo, and the towns are attracting
such industries hs glove factories and
Elaborating on Shop Plans
Col. Thomas H. llrown, who is rep
resenting the Rock Island road in
the purchase of the Pleasant Valley
lands for the location of the shops
of the company, has returned
from ( hicng.r. where he 'learned
(hat the original i'I;m- frr t lie Imild
ings to be erecied have lx't-n changed
The buildings are to be even larger
than the original blue-prints showed,
and instead of 17 acres being under
roof it is likely that before the en
gineers are done with it they will
plan for buildings to cover 10 acres.
The trackage about the land the com
pany has purchased will also be great
ly increased and the whole tract im
proved upon a more elaborate scale
than was at first intended.
The officers do not intend taking
any chances of -bavins; ; the needs of
the company outgrow during the next
few j-ears the plant that such a heavy
expense will be incurred in removing
from Blue Island to this county.
Bock Island After Frisco.
New York, Feb. 2G. Wall street feels
almost confident that J. P. Morgan &
Co. have purchased control of the St.
Louis 3fc San Francisco railroad' for
the Hock Island. There were rumors
all yesterday of competitive buying
of stocks by the Morgan interests.
but these purchases were not cred
ited to the Rock Island. It was said
earlier in the day that the Rock Isl
and people were buying on their own
in tne last hour of the stock mar
ket a report spread on the exchange
that Morgan & Co. had purchased
control of the 'Frisco or the Iiock
Island company. It. was declared
that control had been acquired
through the purchase of a large
amount of common stock. According
to these same- reports the price paid
for the stock was 03 20 per cent in
cash and the balance in notes extend
ing from six to 18 months'.
It has been an open secret for some
time that the Kock Island aspired to
the control of this propertv. Covet
ous eyes have watched every move of
the "Frisco people and an opportunity
to buy into the property has been
eagerly sought. The acquisition
would give the Kock Island many
feeders in the south which it needs to
meet some of its strongest competi
MUSCATINE IS SADLY
AFFLICTED WITH TYPHOID
Typhoid fever is raging in Musca
tine and the source of the disease is
blamed to the river water. Many
deaths have occurred and at present
there are any nuiuuer of cases
throughout the city.
The jK'ople are alarmed at the
spread of the fever and are demand
ing that something be done at once
Water is being boiled and samples of
the river supply have been hurried off
to a chemist for examination. The
Muscatine Journal says in part:
"The fearful mortality due to the
ravages of typhiod fever in Musca
tine is something that demands im
mediate attention and quick action.
The people are already aroused to the
gravity of the situation, but there is
urgent need of a waking up on the
subject and of impressing the citi
zens with the idea of putting in prac
tice some simple plan which will les
sen the epidemic and eventually stamp
"The fact that the intake of the
water company is but a short dis
tance below a large sewer is disgust
ing, to say the lea.st. It is also an
alarming matter and should be reme
died whatever the expense. The ini
tial mistake in locating the intake
rests with the men' who built the
plant, and the city, which now owns
the property, will be compelled to
bear the expense of relocating it.
This will require the expenditure of a
large sum of nfoney, but this consid
eration has no weight as against the
ever present danger from typhoid, es
pecially in the deadly form with which
it has gripped Muscatine this winter."
Woodmen Scheme for Govern
ing Elections is Most
POLITICAL PARTIES ABE OUTDONE
Over 700,000 Members la ll.OOO
Camps Express Th-lr
..'ust now the machine by which the
Modern Woodmen of America con
trols and keeps track of the elections
of its 710,000 members through 11,000
camps in the 35 states and territories
of the jurisdiction is in full operation
and the members are using their un-
trammeled right of franchise in de
ciding probably the most important
question that has ever been submitted
to a vote in a fraternal society.
The sending out cf instructions and
the receiving and classifying of re
ports occupies tne aitention of a
force of clerks under the immediate
direction of Assistant Head Clerk
James McXamara. Everythinsr is re
dnced to such a system that there is
no confusion and the great mass of
statistics is handled with an ease and
certainty mat is uewiiciering to one
not acquainted with the modus oper
andi. The popular 'notion that the na
tional republican and democratic or
ganizations comprehend the most
complete systems known to the
American ieople of arriving at the
popular will, is being made ridiculous
ov tne national organization ot this
greatest of fraternal insurance so
cieties, wiin its Headquarters here in
i ne -repumican and democratic na
tional organizations, it will bo borne
in mind, have little or nothing to do
with the holding of primaries for the
selection of delegates to the city and
county conventions. These are con
trolled solely by the voters. Further
more, while the national committees
"cut some ice" in the various state
conventions, these are composed in
the main of delegates who pay their
own exjenses and are free to accept
or reject any advice tendered them
from the national headouarters. The
national nolitle'al orcanization is not
required to iav the exnenses of state
delegates, nor can it discipline the
delegates if they prove contumacious.
On the other hand, the national
headquarters of Jhe Modern Wood
men of America, directed by the head
clerk, C. W. Havves, absolutely con
trols, through the laws of the so
ciety, the selection of delegates from
the local camps, corresponding to the
primaries. From this point upward
through the country,1 territorial and
state conventions, and even the na
tional convention, the national Wood
men organization absolutely controls.
not the deliberations, but the ma
chinery of government of the society.
Plaree for floldln Named.
When the local camps elect dele
gates to county conventions they nre
required to report the names and ad
dresses of the delegates elected to fhe
head clerk. In the 33 states in which
the society operates, the head clerk
names the places where the meeting
ot county, state and territorial con
ventions shall be held, if the previous
conventions have not done so. He al
so designates, according to law, who
shall call the county conventions to
order, and names the number of dele
gates to which each local camp is en
titled in the county conventions.
Jf and local camp has elected a
greater number of delegates than pre
scribed by the head clerk, the last
names on the list must be dropped to
bring the representation within the
requirements laid down by law.
The county conventions, when held,
must make a full reiort of their pro
ceedings ti the head clerk, and the
state and territorial conventions must
do likewise. When these last reports
have been received, the head clerk
makes out the pay rolls for all dele
gates in attendance, and after the so
ciety's board of directors has author
ized their payment, he mails each
delegate individually a general fund
order for the amount to which he
may be entitled.
The delegates fo the national Wood
men convention each represent 1,500
members' in good standing. They are
more directly subject to control than
are the delegates to the county con-
ty, territorial and state conventions.
They are the supreme law-making
body. Head Clerk Hawes issues indi
vidual credentials entitling each to
sit as a delegate, and upon adjourn
ment of the national convention, each
receives his pay from him.
