spent three days in Hock Island, Mo

an Argus representative at the
Harper just before the de
parture of the party for the east
last night, when he made the remarks

"Wo have great plans for the im
proviment of our interests here" M:-
.Mackay said, and we are anxious to
perfect them just as rapidly as pos
sible. We have gone over the groun
carefully, noted the needs and decided
upon the expenditures to lie made .1
order to intelligently attain the high
est degree of perfection. Much money
lias already been expended in the im
provement of the gas ami ekctric
plants of which the public is not
aware. A great deal of new track has
been put down. The sum of $2oo.nuu
is been appropriated for trackage
alone, and work in this direction will
be resumed and mished forward the
the present year with all the speed
possible. We want to have everv
vestige of old rails out of the way bv
the close of the year. Twenty new
cars are iu process of construction a

local company will get as many more
as it asks for and as often as it asks
for added equipment to meet the re
quirements of the public.
We came here in order to be on the
ground anu too see exactlv what 's
needed. We are more than pleased
with what we have seen. Many of us
have never been here before, and wo

three thriving cities. I do not know
of such a community anywhere on th"
map. a locality so singularly favore I
by nature or so fortunate geographical
ly. It does not seem to be that there
could ever be any dull times here, with
the great south and west and north
west to supply. Regardless of what
tinancial stress may overtake the coun
try, the development, of agriculture
must go on. The farmer must have
implements and other supplies, and
right here is the locality to provide for
his wants. With these three
cities situated in the middle
distance between Chicago and
Omaha in one direction and Chicago
and Kansas City in another, and half
way between St. Paul and St. Louis, 1

can pass through this gate without
paying tribute right here.
And added to the advantages cf

natural highway, the Mississippi river.
What a beautiful stream it is, majestic

regulator of commerce."

then known as Vermilyn & Co., sue

we did for the twin cities we propose
to do on an even larger scale, with the
advantages, of modern appliances for
the tri-cities" he continued. "Our plans
will take at least five years for com
piete development, so extensive are
they in their scope and magnitude, but
when they are completed the people
will have something they can point to
with pride. We do not want to buil
hopes too high or to attempt to swing
the rainbow of promise so low that you
can pick the colors off. We are going
to do the right thing, and make these
properties a source of pride and joy."

The new scale was adopted by local
