TO SILVIS JAN. 2
Division Point of Illinois, Missouri
and Iowa Lines There
i AFFECTS ABOUT 300 MEN
Causes Much Inconvenience to Those
Living in Rock Island and Mo
line Sell Y. M. C. A.
Next Tuesday Silvia is expected to
become the division point of the Illi
nois, Missouri and Iowa divisions of
the Rock Island, for both east and
westbound freight business. The pas
senger terminal and division point for
the three divisions will remain at Rock
Island, as at present, but the entire
freight business will be handled at
Silvis, Natlck being abandoned. Prep
arations for this change have been un
der way for months, and it was planned
to have removed the division point
Dec. 1. The furniture and fixtures of
the offices both in the yards and at the
transfer house have not been installed,
but are expected to be ready by Jan. 2.
Tkrre Ilaadrrd Tniimra.
About COO trainmen on the three di
visions are affected by the change,
those on the Iowa and Missouri divis
ions residing in Rock Island and Mo
line being put to considerable incon
venience by the change. Many of
these men have their homes in the two
cities, and for some time will be un
able to secure accommodations at Sil
vis. They will be called for their runs
by telephone, and must provide them
selves with some means of transporta
tion to Silvis to report for duty. Grad
ually these men will provide them
selves with homes convenient to Silvis,
but the change will be made so slowly
that it will hardly be noticeable. The
men on the Illinois division nearly all
have their homes at Blue Island, and
at this end of the division simply re
main over between runs.
The abandonment of the Nalick
yards will result in the abandonment
of the Natick Y. M. C. A., and the asso
ciation building, which answered the
purposes to a large extent of a hotel,
will be sold. It is understood that the
association will continue to hold the
religious meetings, but it is not for
the present to enter the field at Silvis
that it occupied at Natick. The Rock
Island's hotel at Silvis provides nearly
all the accommodations formerly pro
vided by the V. M. C. A. It is possible
that the association's railway depart
ment will later effect an arrangement
whereby reading rooms and gymnasium
privileges will be provided at Silvis In
copnectlon with the hotel. .. .. ,
McKIRAHAN MET HIS
FIANCEE AT IOWA CITY
an education, he having fcr some un
known reason chosen to leave Ills
adopted parents in Vermont and come
west. Miss Crandali was a student of
liberal arts at the same lime, and the
two formed an attachment. McKira
haa left school in December, and the cou
ple we're engaged at that time. He evi
dently attended Kansas university for a
year and then sought employment with
the understanding that as soon as he
bad an income sufficient to support a
wife he would wed Miss Crandali. Six
months ago he was heard from. He
had entered the employ of the con
struction firm of Bertrand & Co.. with'
which he was connected at the time
of his death. Arrangements for the
wedding were made and ths event was
to have taken place Christmas day.
CARPENTERS HAVE TROUBLE
Question Arises of Work on Materials
from Unfair Shops.
At the next regular meeting of the
district council of the carpenter's union
attention will be given to the question
of allowing the members of the unions
to work materials furnished by manu
facturers who are on the unfair list of
the council. Last week the union car
penters on a small job were ordered to
quit work, because the material was
furnished by an unfair shop. The mat
ter was brought before the union, and
the men will be allowed to finish the
job. Though various manufacturers
have been on the unfair list for several
years the union men rarely refused to
work on materials coming from these
manufacturers. Now a protest has
been made by some of the carpenters,
and it is expected that the district
council will be called on to draw a
sharp line and instruct the business
agent to see that the orders are en
forced. ANOTHER PAPER50 YEARS OLD

Seme people imagine that the rise in the price of diamonds is due
to the syndicate holding back their stock, but such is not the case. - It's
simply a question of supply and demand.
The production at the mines is constantly growing shorter and the
shipments are becoming less frequent, while the demand for diamonds
is growing greater each year. If you den't believe it, look up custom
