Messrs. Kindt and Deutsch have re
cently received requests from the

Scott and L. M. Fisher, Mary Conk
lin. owner of rhe Atlantic house, has
brought suit against the Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific railway, charging that
the erection of the embankment
against the Atlantic house has caused
that building to be shaken, that the
heavy trains have acted in such a way
on the walls that they are cracking
and will soon crumble; that dirt from
the embankment is falling in and
water is pushing its way into the
house. For this damage to the prop
erty Mrs. Mary Conklin asks the sum
of $30,000 and costs.

BUSINESS IS ALL RIGHT:
C0XEY HEBE FOE BARNUM
Says Outlook Was Never Brighter
Plans for the Big Exhibition in
This City Next Monday.
Circus men are notably good bar
ometers of the financial situation, and
W. D. Coxey, one of the press agents
of the Barn am & Bailey circus, which
will be here next Monday, says that
there is not the slightest indication
that this presidential year is going to
show a falling off In business.
Mr. Coxey was in the city today
looking after the interests of the cir
ens. He is an intelligent and inter
"In times of financial depression,"
said Mr. Coxey, "the circus is one of
the first enterprises to feel its effects.
This is because a large part of the cir
cus clientele comes from the country,
and the farmers are very quick to
scent financial danger and practice
economy. Our business instead of fall
ing off is constantly on the increase,
and our greatest trouble is to find
room to seat the people.
"Yon may think the latter statement
surprising when I tell you that the
seating capacity of the Barnum & Bai
ley show is in the vicinity of 16.000
greater, in fact, than any other circus
in the world and even superior to
that of the Barnum & Bailey show
prior to its trip to Europe. This great
show, however, is restricted in its ca
pacity by one important fact it abso
lately will not sell 'standing room.'
Every scat in the big tent even the
cheapest is a coupon or section seat.
The capacity of the tent has been ac
curately figured out, and only enough
tickets to fill it are printed.
"But this Is not all. Not only is the
audience not crowded, but its comfort
is also provided for in a way that
would have seemed chimerical a few
years ago. There are four classes of
seats. If you wish to pay the price
you may have a box seat; $1 gives you
an opera chair on a solid platform,
and 73 cents pays for a folding back
seat, the same as other shows exact a
dollar for. The greatest triumph, how
ever, is in the 50 cent seats. Every
'admission' seat has a foot rest and a
comfortable foot rest at that. The
popularity of such an innovation is
evident. While the danger in walking
from seat to seat is totally eliminated.
"From the standpoint of magnitude
a great deal can also be said. The
show will come to Rock Island next
Monday, July 23, with over SS railroad
Mr. Coxey "s views on the business
situation are interesting as bearing out
the contention of the optimistic ones
that the good times are with us to
Some men are born great anil some
are born to go in advance of a show.
Like the show he represents there is
only one Coxey and his coming is a
feature in itself. His word pictures
of the great white-tented fairyland are
worth the while to listen to. The big
ges't and best event of the whole sum
mer season will be when Barnum &
Bailey come to town.

the following letter relative to his de

in Moline. Mr. Dow has also address
ed the Business Men's association rel
ative to the matter, and an investiga

proposition. The letter reads: "I am
in line to offer your city a very excep
