Otbcr Concerns Making Large In
roads on Their Business
The foreign packing companies hav
ing local branches here and in Daven
port have returnel to the practice.
abandoned last August, of delivering
products to the retail markets.
Iliose in the non-delivery agree
ment were the Hnminoml. Hwift, Ar
inour, Nelson Morris and Cudahy con
cerns. hi!e adhering to the eld cus
tmi were the local packers, T. M. Sin
clair, of Cedar Rapids, and Kchwartz-
schild & Sulzberger, of ew l ork.
The decision to dispense with the
wagons was apparently made by per
sons not familiar with the situntion
here, although doubtless the head
otticcs of the companies were
advised that the new arrangement
would eventually mean business sui
cide to those in the agreement, and
such it was proving when the deter
mination was reached to go back to
the old order of things.
There is a packing house owned by
local capital in the west part of Dav
enport. The management declined to
enter into the non-deli vcrv agreement
for the reason that the company had
no uptown offices or storage accom
modations and consequently the trade
would lie obligVd to tbit the house
in the outskirts of the city, entailing
the loss of the greater part of a day
to the prospective purchaser if he
wished to visit the concern and look
over what it had to ofTcr fnr sale. This
was an unfair advantage, and Sinclair
ind S. & S. held out on the grounds
that thev could not afford to buck a
home establishment that intended to
continue delivery of products.

but which no one seems to care to

from being the case with Crea tore
that the towns where he has played
oftenest are the keenest to hear him
again, anil each season opens better
than its predecessor. After the con
certs here hist season, which came
quite near the close of the musical
season, the band took a brief rest, and
opened June ."0 at Willow Grove, the
popular resort of Philadelphia, for a
three weeks' engagement. Then fol
lowed four weeks in New York, which
has lost none of its enthusiasm for
Creatore. and the rest of the summer
was filled with engagements at I'uf

and Pittsburg, where the audiences
broke all records for attendance in
the great music halls. The tour which
is now in progress will last until May
1, 11MU. The programs will be found
much the same in character as those

popular numbers are repeated, par
ticularly those of the melodious and
emotional Italian music, which Crea

"Wine improves with age" is a fact
that can he made to apply as directly
to the spirits of man as to the liquid
spirit. l!ut few of the middle-aged

The little girl was not told that her

Mrs. Qulntin's last apnearance on

years ago, when the play was first
presented, and which the had played
ever since. She was unable to go on

A Night Alarm.
Worse than an alarm of fire at night
is the brassy cough of croup, which
sounds like the children's death knell,
and it means death unless something
is done, quickly. Foley's Honey and
Tar never fails to give instant relief
and quickly cures the worst forms of
croup. Mrs. P. L. Cordier, of Man
nington. Ky., writes: "My 3-year-old
girl had a severe case of croup; the
doctor said she could not live. I got
a bottle of Foley's Honey and Tar
the first dose gave quick relief and
saved her life. Refuse substitutes.
Sold by all druggists.
Foley A- Co.. Chicago, originated
Honey and Tar as a throat and lung
remedy, and on account of the great
merit and popularity of Foley's Hon
ey and Tar many imitations are offer
ed for the genuine. Ask for Foley's
Honey and Tar and refuse any sub
stitute offered, as no other prepara
tion will give the same satisfaction.
It is mildly laxative. It contains no
opiates and is safest for children and

St. Louis, Feb. 2G. A well-known
baseball player of this city is respon
sible for the statement that there will
soon be a well organized baseball
players union to fight the growing
trust among baseball club owners and
league managers. Said he:
"The magnates think they have the
baseball . situation tied up in a com
pound knot that makes the gordian
affair look like a true lovers bow.
With a baseball union backet! by the
labor unions, the baseball player could
at least protect himself. Of course,
the union could not step in and dic
tate salaries, but it could force clubs
to live up to contracts and keep the
players from being putty in the h.lnds
of the magnates. think the scheme
will go through, and it ought to.
Players are now absolutely at the
mercy of club owners. You need not
laugh. I know a players' union has
already been tried, but this time it
will be different. It will be organized
as a member of the American Federa
tion cf Labor. This means the sym
pathy of many hundreds of thousand
of workmen, who. by the way. are the
principal patrons of baseball games.
You can imagine vyhat a lever this
will put -into the hands of the players.
I am not talking through my hat.
The plan was breached by the head
or the labor federation, and many of
the players have received communi
cations about the matter." j
