ROCK ISLAND ILL.
UP TO THIS COUNTY
Henry Supervisors Not Enthusi
astic Over Upper End
THE COMMITTEE INVESTIGATES
Bat One Member From Neighboring
County Board Pata in
Supervisors Wood. Stoflft ami Hutch
inson member.- f the committee ap
pointed bj the Bock Island county
board to investigate the proposed plan
of building a bridge between Rock Isl
and and Henry counties at one of
three site.- favored bare returned
from devotiag a couple of days to this
work. It had been arranged to meet
with the committee appoin&d by
Henry county, but only one member
from that county appeared.
The attitude of the Henry county
supervisors is taken as evidence that
it is up to Rock Island county to in
dicate the degree of enthusiasm that
exbts here toward the bridge, and it
is up to the people of the county, e.--peciallj
of Kock Island and Moline,
to stand back of the .-u per visors in
reflecting the popular indorsement
ami support of the project. The Hen-
I ry county people appreciate the ad
vantages of a market close at hand
for their goods, but the fact exists
that the farmers who produce the
farm and garden supplies that will
liir.' a read market here have a mar
ket in Chicago for what they have to
High as Chicago Markets.
Rock Island county markets are said
t be fully as high as the Chicago
market for the greater part if the
year, due to the fact that we are con
sumers rather than producers, and
that which we want is cut off from
us by Rock river and the lack of con
venient crossing. There is not one
bridge over tin- river from the Moline
bridge to the one now rising at Hills
dale that is available to farmers'
The committee discussed the vari
ous sites with the people in the vicin
ity and were made acquainted with
points in favor of and against each.
The Barstow site is favored by many
because the expense of building ap
proaches will he avoided if the site is
cho.-en. and because it is a more cen
tral crossing point calculated to ac
commodate a larger number of Henrj
county people, without going far out
of th.eir way. than either of the other
REV. SAM JONES MAY HEAD
THE PROHIBITION TICKET
It is possible that the Rev. Sam
.loin - will he the chief standard bear
er of the prohibition partv this time,
hy becoming their nominee for presi
dent. A large number of the leaders
are in favor of having him head the
natii nal ticket.
Some time asro it was rumored thai
Gen. Mile- hail expressed a willingness
I to become a candidate for president
ion the prohibition ticket, lmt it is
I quite evident that the leaders of the
party are not in favor this, as
(Jen. Miles has not so far fully de
clared his attitude toward the main
principles for which the party stands.
It is not likely that very much effort
will be made to secure his nomination
unless he should make some definite
statement in the near future.

candidates are Q. W. tleer. of Cham

His policy, No. 22, increased over 300
per cent in value and was a great
comfort t him in his declining years.

zel Salve is the best salve in the world
