WHAT WILL YOU D0?
When sickness, lack of work, or some other cause has forc
ed you to go in debt. You will probably say, let your
creditors wait now that's poor policy, you should strive
above all things to keep your credit good, furthermore,
they were fair to you in extending you credit, now be fair
with them and pay them what you owe, even if you have
to borrow the money. But don't make the mistake of ask
ing your friends or relatives for it, that's humiliating.
Come to us pay a reasonable compensation for your loan
and there is no obligation to the transaction. We can ar
range such a loan on short notice, at a fair rate of interest
and in a strictly private way, on your furniture, piano,
horses, wagons, etc. without removal or annoyance. See

COMMITTEES MAKE PROGRESS
Commercial Agent, Competitive Tracks
and Factory Site Practically As
sured at Present Time.
The past week has seen a great im
petus given to a greater Rock Island.
As The Argus has noted from time to
time, the most pleasing progress has
been made in carrying out the purposes
of the recent meeting at the Rock Is
land Club, in which the club and the
Retail Merchants' association decided
to join hands in an endeavor, to give
the west end of the, city competitive
railway switch tracks and to provide
there a site such as outside factories
can find readily available. Sufficient
funds have been raised within a few
days by the committee in charge of the
work to provide for a commercial agent
for the city, and the early announce
ment that one has been engaged is ex
Of equal Importance is the assur
ance by the committee on competitive
track rights to the lower end, which
has been hustling the past few
days, that the problem is already solv
ed, or will be in a very short time.
Just what the arrangement is, is not
stated, and will not be till contracts
SttPM Wnlt on Track.
The factory site committee has like
wise computed its work and further
progress now only awaits the comple
tion of the track project. In short,
one of the most important steps in tht
development of the resources of tht
city has been taken and results are
certain to be reaped in the near future.

GEORGE REDDIG PRESIDENT
Vote Unanimously Against Proposed
Sidewalk Improvement Will Pre
sent Protest to Council.
At the meeting of the First and Sec
ond Ward Improvement association
held last evening, the following officers
were elected for the year:
President George W. Reddig.
Vice President C. V. Johnson.
Secretary xv. R. Fennessey.
Treasurer John Holtzhammer.
There were about 40 citizens in at
tendance, the meeting being called for
the purpose of considering the propos
ed sidewalk improvement in the two
west end wards.
Vole for OppONltion.
The proposed sidewalk assessment
was thoroughly discussed, and at the
conclusion of the arguments, a unani
mous vote opposed the improvement.
Mayor McCaskrin and others presented
the matter to the meeting, explaining
the manner of operation of the assess
ment for the work. The sidewalk con
struction is opposed because of other
contemplated improvements which will
result in special assessment levies
against the property. It is argued that
the property owners along the propos
ed Improvement are not speculating in
their real estate, and that the side
walks will in one way be of no value to
them, while with the other levies, it
would be a considerable burden. A pro
test will be presented to the board of
local improvements and the city coun
On Ninth Street Invlnr.
While the question was not generally
discussed, and no action was taken, it
developed that there is likely to be
considerable further protest on the
Ninth street paving, on the grounds
that the street is in fair condition now,
and that the traffic would be too great
for the pavement. While there are fal
lacies in these arguments, a number of
citizens are advancing them seriously:
and it is understood that a second
written protest will be presented to the
city council. The first protest had but
a small portion of the frontage repre
sented by the signatures.

John W. Scherer. '
John W. Sherer died at his home,
1315 Sixth avenue, last evening at 5
3'clock, after an illness of 15 months
with siomacb trouble and a complica
tion of diseases. He was born in this
city July 31, 18C4, and had been em
ployed at Rock Island arsenal. He is sur
vived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John
Sherer, of this city, four sisters, Mrs.
Mark M. Pierce of Chicago. Mrs. G. F.

Mrs. Alvin Farber died at her home
in Barstow Tuesday. She was born at
Geneseo, Feb. 2, 1869, and was married
to Alvin S. Farber In 1S87. She leaves
beside her husband," nine children,
Clyde A., Alice, Merley A., Ethel C.,
Ellen V., Sylvester R., Harold P., Lucy
M., and Alva E. Farber. Her mother,
Mrs. Lena Houschild. a sister, Mrs.
Sophie Hummel of Milan, and two
brothers, Charles and James, of Hills
dale, also survive.
The street car service on the Watch
Tower line last evening was a marked im-
provo-ntnt over the manner in which
the crowds that attend the Friday even
ing concerts have been taken care of
in the past, and the change was the
subject of much favorable comment.
Extra cars were placed on the line
early in the evening, and trips were
made from the city every few minutes
until late. At the close of the program
and the moving picture exhibition.
there were plenty of cars standing
ready on the tracks at the Tower to ac
commodate nearly all with seats. The
accommodations were even better than
the usual Sunday and holiday service.
The crowding and rush for seats at
tendant on the inadequiate service
heretofore has been the cause of many
minor injuries to passengers, and made
possible accidents of a serious nature.
The improvement is worthy of commendation.
The most desirable patterns of the greatest furniture
factories are represented in this line. Whether you buy or
not, you'll enjoy seeing this extensive assortment of beau

lent Attractions to Be Given

The failure of the Moline Chautau
