Build New Warehouse.
This summer another large building
will be added to the Third avenue fac
tory row. Plans for now being per
fected providing for a five-story brick
structure by Deere & Co. to be erected
on the old paper mill site. For several
years the great plow shop has been
crowded for warehouse room and bow
the company has been forced to take
immediate steps to remedy this. With
this in view a $100,000 building will
be built. The building will be 171xlG4
feet and five stories high and will be
built out of brick. It will be built on
the paper mill site, half of which is
owned by the Moline Plow company
and the other half by Deere & Co.
The latter firm owns upwards of 300
fest of the ground and a little more
than half of that ground will be util
ized for the new building. As soon
as plans are completed ground w-ill be
broken, which will probably start the
latter part of this month or the first
of April. It will be completed by the
time cold weather again sets in.

serve as officers: President, Newton
Marshall; vice president, Beder Wood;

CAPT. BLAIR BACK FROM
TRIP DOWN THE RIVER
Sees Good Business for Coming Season
Tells About the New Co
lumbia. Capt Walter Blai has returned from
the south, where he purchased the
steamer Columbia for the excursion
business to be run by the Carnival City
Packet company. He brings word that
the river season is opening up in good
shape down the river and he looks for
a heavy business here the coming sea
The Columbia was built by the
Youngs, of Clinton, and put into com
mission in 1S99, and is therefore a com
paratively new boat. She is four feet
longer and has four feet more beam
than the Helen Blair, although she does
not set as high in Vhe air, being at
present without a tpxas. and therefore
looking a little smaller than she really
is. Excellent machinery, and new boil
ers, allowing a pressure of 206 pounds,
equip her admirably for speed, and
her big wheel has pushed her around
on the lower river in a way that has
been the admiration and envy of skip
pers other than her own.
As soon as the boat was purchased,
on the Tennessee river, where she was
spending the winter, she was dropped
down to Farley's landing, and a gang
of shipwrights set o work to remodel
her and adapt her especially for the" ex
cursion business. Some of the state
rooms are coming out to make more
cabin room, and glass sides are going
in, together with facilities for serving
dinners and catering to the hungry
picnicker, and the Sunday schools and
churches, lodges and clubs of the river
along here will find the Columbia just
what they have been looking for. She
will be nice and clean, airy and light.

FOR NEW MOLINE THEATRE
Chamberlin, Kindt & Co. Deposit $20,-
000 in Bank as Per Their
.uonne s new theatre will be built
this year. Ground will be broken as
soon as the frost leaves. M. J. Mc
Eniry, secretary of the Moline Busi
ness Men's association, which directed
to a successful conclusion the canvass
ior an advance seat sale amounting
to ?10,ooo. today received a letter from
Chamberlin, Kindt & Co., who are
A 1 - . i
io ue ine owners or tne new piay-
house, stating that, in accordance with
their agreement, they had deposited
$20,000 in bank, and that they would
immediately invite plans from archi
I he theatre, which will be erected
on the site of the old Auditorium,
which was destroyed by fire several
years ago, will cost $50,000, exclusive
of the ground, in which there will be
an additional investment of $5,000.
The plan is that the Moline Business
Men's association should raise $10,000.
This has been all pledged, and is now
being collected. Chamberlin, Kindt
& Co. are to put up $20,000, and mort
gage the property for $25.0tO. They
say the theatre will be one of the
handsomest in their circuit, which in
cludes Rock Island, Davenport, and
other cities in Illinois and Iowa.
NEW DAYLIGHT SERVICE
Milwaukee May Put on Additional
llejKit has it that the Milwaukee
road is contemplating the putting on
of an additional passenger train eac-lr
way between the three cities and Chi
cago. The runs of the trains will be
between Chicago and Davenport and
it is designated that each way daylight
service will be provided. Since the
opening of the Kansas City line and
the installation of the Southwest Lim
ited service, the Milwaukee has stead
ily gained in its Chicago travel from
the three cities to the extent that the
Southwest Limited wesbound, is filled
every night. The aim is now to pro
vide daylight service to relieve some
of this travel and to give the patron
age here the same good service east
bound. The Southwest Limited leav
ing here at 4:15 a. m. is too early
for many friends of the road who
would travel over it if the trains de
parted a little later in the day. The
eastbound train, it is understood, will
leave here about 2:30 p. m.
