IS PLENTY OF COAL
Generous Supply is Already on
Hand in Rock Isl
and. A FAMINE 18 NOT LIKELY
Prices Will Not Cat Much Figure
With Users as Most of Them
There seems little likelihood of a
coal famine this winter, at least as
far as Hock Island is concerned. The
:;tck of coal is large and for the moist
part the bins have been tilled long
since. The recent lowering of temper
ature has had the effect of hurrying:
up the laggards ami there seems little
likelihood that anyone will be short
In fact the coal question falls far
short of being a question at all, and
everyone who has the money also has
the coal in his cellar.. A local dealer
said yesterday: r
"1 do not anticipate a very great
rise, in the price of coal, although
there is some intimation of it in the
trade journals. As a matter of fact
it is due in a large measure to a
scare carried over from last year and
there are large numbers of people
who v. ill place in store large quanti
ties of coal for which they will stand
in no need for whatever. Not that the
price will lower after the first pur
chase of the winter, but it would not
be good policy to purchase more than
is needed for ordinary consumption as
there will not be a change either for
the good or bad in the price.
Wilt be Some Chance.
"Of course, it is not probable that
there will be no fluctuations in prices.
There never has been a season yet
where the price of fuel remained
stationary for any considerable
length of time, and there is no reason
to suppose that it will during the
coming winter. What I mean to say
is that the changes in price will not
be of such a wide range ss will cause
what is commonly termed a 'famine,'
and therefore there will be no need
of a panic and a rush on the coal of
fices for a winter's supply."
The situation is about as expressed
above. There not the slightest dan
ger of a fatiune in the fuel market,
and those who- expect to anything of
the sort who are buying in large
quantities of coal as a result while
they vill not be losers by reason of a
drop in the price are being unneces
sarily alarmed. Hard coal will of
course be subject to a little rise as is
always is the case in the middle of the
winter, but this scarcity is due to

users of anthracite coal to purchase

Southern Suburb Will Oppose Fill
ing Under Span of Siough
WHEN STRUCTURE IS REBUILT
Claims Shortening Would Endanger
Village in Time of
The people of Milart set in determin
ed t resist the proposed tilling of
the north end of Kickapoo slough,
the southernmost one of Hie streams
nt that place and the one which the
Rock Island city council is preparing
to place a new bridge-across. It was
pointed out that a till had as well be
made under the north span, leaving
but one span to be rebuilt and mater
ially Yetlucing the cost, from the fact
that the stream that' now passes un
der the bridge is but a fraction of
what it was when the bridge was ori
The people of Milan take tlie ground
that while the water that ordinarily
passes down the channel is very small
and could easily pass under one span,
the freshets of Mill creek need all the
room they can get in order to prevent
them from washing away the town.
In other words, they assume that a
considerable portion of the Mill creek
floods are carried away nnder the
north span of the bridge.
Now Full of DrUt.
Xow, as a matter of fact, the north
half of the channel has become filled
in through action of the water and
the growth of willows and weeds till
the bank there is nearly the same
level as the portion of Milan
immediately south of it. Not
that, but the slough is tilling
year to year, and the time will
in a very few years when no water,
even in the cae of a freshet, will get
over the north bank of the ordinary
channel. When there was a flood in
the creek a couple of months ago and
the fire bell was rung at Milan at dead
of night to warn the people of the
danger, there was but a few inches of
water passing under the north span
of the present bridge, while there was
a foot or two tearing down through
the town and passing away via the
"Little Jimmie" creek.
One Span Is Sofliclent.
The fact is that the south span of
the bridge will accommodate all Ihe
water that is able to pass down
through the narrower channel above,
and if the tipper channel is overtaxed
Milan is in for a flood even though
the Kickapoo bridge were a mile long.
It hardly seems the part of wisdom
fr.r the city of Rock Island to go to
several thousands of dollars extru ex
pense in placing a span across the
norlh half cf the channel when very
little benefit to anyone can possibly
accrue at the present time and none
whatever after nature has done its
work a few seasons longer.
LOWERS SCHOOL STANDARD
Universities Too Kacer In 1 heir Search for
t Football Playt-r.
Demoralization of athletics in the
high schools, with consequent detri
me nt to the educational stauding of
pupils, is the result of certain univer
sities seeking youths who may be suc
cessful in the football lield, accord
ing to Superintendent Cooley and
President Harris, of the board of ed
ucation, of Chicago.
Protests have been made by Mr.
Cooley to President James, of North
western university, and President
Harper, of the University of Chicago,
against the selection of husky youths
in the high schools who may make
good football players.
The rules of the high schools gen
erally take care of Hie education of
football players, and the youth who
fails to reach the average of 75 per
cent in a year cannot play in the foot
ball team, even though he may be able
to kick goal from the -10-yard line
The universities, however, have been
licking out the athletic youths and
have given them entrance to universi
ties, though tliey have not come up
to the requirements of the high
Four instances are known of in Chi
cago where school boys who failed to
get the requisite Educational marks
have been accepted in college. One of
them is said to be Eckersall, w ho went
to the University of Chicago, and an
other is said to be. Tom Hammond, of
the Michigan team.
Superintendent Cooley will make a
protest at the college conference
Nov. 27, but the trouble with this con
ference is that it will meet after the
final games Thanksgiving day. Mr.
Cooley, however, hopes to make his
protest so vigorous that it will be tak
en up and the practice stopped.

show proper respect for old age, but
