A.I I Ut of TrnrkK,
The tract embraces everything west
ef the railway tracks and within the
c ty limits except the part lying north
of the old "sawdust" road from the
Standard Table Oilcloth company's
plant, east. The land exrepted is that
of the Weyerhaeuser & Uenkmann mill
and yards, the Kahlke boat yard, the
oil cloth plant, a tract of about five
acres lying east which the oilcloth
works may eventually occupy, ami the
two acres belonging to the city at the
old abbatoir, now the isolation hospi
tal. The-conveyance is subject to sev
eral leases of short terms on small
The area Included is as large as the
whole of the factory district of Moline
west of Fifteenth street. It is the most ad
vantageemsly located for manufactur
ing purposes of any in the threje cities,
or will be when additional railway
tracks are secured, which there is ev
ery reason to believe will be in the
near future. In addition to being
reached, eventually by three and pos
sibly four great railway systems, it is
on a navigable portion of the Missis
sippi river and water transportation
facilities will always act as a check
upon rair freight rates, particularly
after the? Panama canal is completed
and the Hennepin canal is finished and i
made part of the system between the
Great lakes and the- Mississippi riv r.
While much of the land is below high
water mark, most factories will find
this to an advantage, as they will be
given an opportunity to dirpose of re
fuse in filling.

The acquisition of this tract is on?
ef the most significant forward steps
Rock Island has evtr taken. It means
that this ci'.v has immediately avail
able1 for industrial purposes a huge
area of un xcel'ed advantages. It
means thai the long looked-for growth
to the west and south is about to be
gin and when once started the develop
ment ot tl:e laud to Koeu river on me
south will be a question of hut a few
years. Men of capital and ability
whose past achievements insure tin
success of this big undertaking, have
takm hold of the matter and there can
be but oil" result, the doubling of
Rock Island's commercial importance
and population in a comparatively few

That progress has been made on the
trackage proposition was stated at the
meeting Saturday afternoon. The com
mittee that has this important feature
in hand reported that overtures have
been made by the Milwaukee and D.,
U. I. & N. Y. roads to the Rock Island
for switching privileges and a deal is
now- pending between the interested
lines by which an exchange of favors
will without question soon bring about
a realization of the end sought.

Argus office this afternoon a carefully
prepared typewritten dimand for re
ward" iiwtae name of the police depart
ment. The il. maud was .-igned by Mr.
Ludwig himself, and attached to the
document, was ih.. clipping from The
Argus of the notice of reward which
has been running a week in hopes of
putting down the series of burglaries in
Rock Island', the limit of the time for
which the reward was to stand expir
ing when the council meets tonight.
Accompanying the communication is
what purports to be a "signed confes
sion" by 'lorn Johnson of Moline, wit
nessed by Night Captain L. K. Ilcmeii
way, telling in ditail of the commission
of burglary in Rock Island and how he
disposed of the booty, his capture, etc.
The communication further attacks The
Argus for criticising the lack of vigil
ance on the part of the police depart
ment in coping with the Jong siege of
nocturnal visitations in Rock Island,
and. in conclusion, makes the demand
for the $.r)U reward right away, "by
check or otherwise."
As far as Special Patrolman Ludwig
is concerned, if he has run to earth one
d' the burglars who have operated in
Rock Island, The Argus will be only
too happy to pay the amount of the
reward the moment the conviction is
established. It will do this, not onlv
to make gexxl its offer, but to show its
appreciation ot the lact that the offer
has spurred the police to successful ef
ions. in any event, Special Officer
