Chicago Stone Cutting Plant
Considering Removal to

Would Place Them in Position to
Compete With Out
Tlie repres'-iitiitive of a Chit-ago
firm was in Rock Island toil ay intcr

erence to the establishment of a stone
cutting establishment here. He stat
er! hat his cc.mpany was t'.oiii!'' a
luTfje busines-, in Chicago, but w ishei!
to locate further ct, where it would
be in touch with The lii!fliiii- inter
ests of this territory.
An institution of this character
would be a threat arlxantnp'e to con
tractors here and in the cities of Dav
enport and Moline, one of their num
ber stated to lay. as it would place
them on a footing with bidders mi
jobs from cities where they have
stone cutting plants, as machine cut
stone can be furnished at a figure
considerably below that turned out
by hand work.
Asked if such a plant would not be
a Ietrimtnt to the s-tone cutting
trade in this section, the contractor
stated that it would not be; that
tradesmen would have to be cmphned
at the plant anyway, an 1 more of
them would be given work than were
now -1 1 ' I y ed. by long odds, on the
jobs that are available in the three
cities. They won!'! not only have all
the stone used on buildings hereabout
to cut. but would turn out materials
for contracts secured all over the
An AI1 to Contractors.
"I propose giving the firm ail the
encouragement at my command." con
tinued the contractor, who was none
other than Mayor William MeCoiio
chie. '"i'.ringing it here will mean
much to builders. It will give them an
opportunity to spread out,- and com
pete with tin- big fellows in other
cities, who have been taking all t h
work away from us simply because
they have at their base just such an
establishment as this."

IN 13 INCHES OF WATER
A valuable bi;Il of .lohn Rosen

drowned in a water tank the other
day. The cireum.-tnnces surrounding
the tragic end of the bovine were
somewhat sensational and txtreinely
humorous to ceroue concerned ex

The a'limal was one that was hard
to manage. Mr. Rosengrcen was un
able to hold it and his on on a wnscr
attempted to hold the animal. The

around the water tank. The jerk given
the rope by the young man threw tin

with its head down. The tank was
filled with IS inehes of water and was
just large enough to make the bull a

POLICE DEPARTMENT TO
HAVE THREE NEW HORSES
Dexter. Hilly and Doc, the faithful
horses of the Pock Island police de
partment, are to be retired. Tbey
are not to be pensioned, but are to be
given ever to hands where the de
mands en them will not be so strenu
ous as that in the yioiiee service. Hilly
is Is years old. while Dexter is 1 and
Doc 10. They are growing too old
for the dip. an I y oung r animals, are
to be substituted for them. I'd My has
served the city for veal's. He began
with the CertraJ ho-e company, and
three years ago was transferred lo
the police department. He is the vet
eran of the three. Doc is his running
mate on the patio and a inbula cce.
Dexter pulls the chief's single rig.
There is still h ft in the policemen's
ball fund about ?:;."o after buying a
mnv buggy f ;r the chief am! repaint
ing the ambulance and equipping it
with electric light anl adjustable
stretcher appliances. With this
amount, and the price the three
horses disposed of will bring-,
it is throught three new spank
ing steeds can be bought, and
those having any desirable hor-c flesh
to offer might strike a bargain by
calling at the station. One team will
continue to pull the ambulance and
patrol. The third will be used n the
chief's rig. and relieve either of the
others in ea-e .f sii-kfiess.
MILLER IS TO WED
Chief of Rock Island Police Force
Taken Into Camp by
EVENT OCCURS IN NEAR FUTURE
Miss Bertha Schmitt is the Lady
Phil Tells of His Little
Cupid has taken captive Phil Miller,
chief of police. For months the head
of the local police department has
been under suspicion, but he stead
fastly denied, the soft impeachment
Miss Pert ha Schmid, a member of
one of the old families of Rock Isl
am, is the lady whom the chief is to
lead to the altar. He declines to state
when the happy event is to be con
summated, but admits that his days
of single blessedness are numbered.
In due time the invitations will be
issued, and the chief says that all his
friends will be included. The wed
ding ceremony will be quiet, and will
be attended only by the relatives, but
there is to be a reception afterward
at the home of the couple, and to
which they will welcome their friends.
It was known that the chief was
keeping secret in his breast informa
tion the release of which would do
him good, and when he poured forth
his little affair of the heart today he
smiled like a youngster who was
about to have his first venture on the
sea of matrimony. This will be the
second for the chief. He confesses
he is no longer a young man, but
still he does not wish to be numbered
with the old ones, for he feels as
young, and he looks it. too. as he did
?.'(! years ago.

"I have always felt that the head
of the police department should be a
married man." remarked the chief to
day. "It looks- better for the city. It
sets an example for the remainder of
the force, and then besi 1es the chief
is in a position to advise these bache
lors around town who are burning
electric light and hovering about the
tire places of the homes t f the city
during the winter without the slight
est thought of marriage."

pleted a lengthy tour, during which
he visited nine states and received in

have brought in numerous letters, a
large stack of which lie on his desk
at the state capitcl, urging him t
announce his intention of seeking tin
vice presidential nomination and of
fcring support. These outline hi.

his record as an active party worker
