Work on Hotels Goes On. During
the present existing differences be
tween the union carpenters and the
members of the -Mastei . Builders' as
sociation, work on the construction of
the new Davenport hotel at Fourth and
Main streets and ttie remodeling of
the Kimball house, is not being inter
fered with. The new hotel is being
erected by outside contractors and the
remodeling of the Kimball house is
being done by the Tri-City Construc
tion company, neither of whom are
members of the Master Builders' as
sociation and consequently are not af
fected by the present difficulty.

Character Study of the Three Defend

Of the three officials of the Western
Federation of Miners now on trial at
Boise, Ida., for their lives on the charge
of having conspired to cause the mur
der of ex-Govcnior Frank Steunenberg
qt Idaho, W. D. Haywood, secretary
and treasurer of the miners' organiza
tion, makes the best impression on first
acquaintance, says Oscar King Davis,
the Boise correspondent of the New
York Times. He is a big, sturdy fellow,
with "a square head and solid jaw. He
has lost the sight of his right eye and
has developed a curious trick of turn
ing bis face away as if to conceal his
misfortune and rolling his left eye
around to keep track of what is going
on.. It gives him a queer, unnaturally
furtive expression, not at nil in keeping
with his straightforward manner when
Haywood Is a Socialist and an Ideal
ist. He is fond of reading and devotes
much of his time to It, making it both
recreation and study. His friends say
that although he is deeply concerned in
making the most vigorous fight possi
ble to escape conviction, he has not
lost sight of the fact that the death
penalty in this case would make hi in a
martyr of organized lnbor.
But Charles II. Moyer, president of
the federation, and George A. Pettl
bone find no such compensation in their
situation. They are both more prac
tical men, desperately intent on mak
ing a winning defense. Moyer was the
brains of the Western Federation of
Miners and Its chieT organizer.' He is
of the labor leader type and always ex
tremely popular with the regular labor
union man. He makes a fiery speech
and carries his audience with him. He
has the reputation of being the best
man on his feet in the ranks of organ
ized labor today. Petti bone in appear
ance fits the description ' reported to
have been given of him by Harry Or
chard. He is a slight man, below the
average height, with a weak chin and
the good natured grin that goes with it.
Wheu I saw the three defendants in
the county jail the other day Haywood
had just come down from the court
room, where he had listened to the ad
verse ruling of Judge Fremont Wood.
In court he was very nervous and had
difficulty in maintaining an outward
show of composure. He seldom faced
the Judge, but continually rolled his
left eye toward the bench, while seem
ing to look the other way. But in his
cell he is a different man. He had
nothing to say about his case of course,
but manifested a lively interest in what
was going on outside and particularly
in the effect of the "undpslrnble citi
zen" expression of the president.
Pettibone was busy at his favorite
amusement, pyrography. He had a lot
of specimens of his work and one
which afforded no little amusement.
It was a big piece of leather on which
he had burned the motto, "So live that
every day you can look every man In
the face and tell htm to go to h ."
The signature Pettibone has adopted
for his artistic effects in the burned
wood and leather line is a goat. He

E. Freeman of the Moline divisiou of
naval reserves has received orders for
the annual cruise on Lake Michigan,
the local division to leave Moline on
the evening of July 19, returning from
Chicago on July 27. The Moline di
vision now has CI men on the mem
bership roll, but Lieutenant Freeman
would like to enlist at least 10 more
men before June 10. Lieutenant Free
man has also received an invitation
from Company G, 5th infantry, of Peo
ria, to visit that city June 11 to take
part in the military parade, it being
the military day in that city. A big
parade will take place in the afternoon
and a sham battle will take place at
Lake View park in the evening.

that they will have brick instead of
asphalt. The majority of the frontage
has filed a petition with tho board of
local improvements asking that the
street be paved with brick and that the
work go ahead as fast as possible.

"First we had a drink, and second we
put on the gloves and boxed a, while,
and third we had a few more drinks.
Then we walked outside of the saloon
and he called me a name, so I took a

boxing partner. Dan Hepburn. Hep

dismissed, but Harrington was fined

The river Rhine is being turned to

women of a trouble which will soon

How often do we hear women say,
"It seems as though my back would
break." Yet they continue to drag
along1 and suffer with aches in the
small of the back, pain low down in
the side, dragging sensations, nerv
ousness and no ambition.
They do not realize that the back
is the main-spring of woman's organ-
a diseased condition of the feminine organs or kidneys, and that aches
and pains will continue until the cause is removed.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
made from native roots and herbs has been for many years the most
successful remedy in such cases. No other medicine has such a record
of cures of feminine ills. ..t

completely worn out and on the verge of nervous prostration. My back
ached all the time. I had dreadful periods of pain, was subject to fits
of crying and extreme nervousness, and was always weak and tired.

FACTS AND FIGURES
Touching the Rock Island Tropical
The company holds clear title to
12,000 acres of hardwood timber.
This timber before it was purchas
ed was found to contain more than
,120 trees to the acre where it ap
peared to be of average and uniform
These trees will average over 2,
000 feet of lumber per tree, which
will amount to 216,000 feet per acre,
or a total of 2.860,000,000 feci.
That It will average only one-fourth
of this amount; that will still mean
C0.000 feet per acre, or a total pro
portion of more than 700,oon,ooo
feet. This lumber includes a large
proportion of such woods as ma
hogany, zapote, chicle, Spanish ce
dar, paque, and many other equally
valuable varieties, some of them

$250 per thousand.
It sells" at the railroad in Mexico
at $60 to $100 -per thousand, or an
average at American railroad mar
kets at $260 per thousand.
' NOW SUPPOSE
That trie cost of cutting, millingand
marketing this lumber will amount
to $30 per thousand. That will leave
an average profit of $30 per thous
That only one-half of this can be
realized. There will still be a net
profit of $23 per thousand, which,
multiplied by 700,000, gives a total
profit of $17,rOj),000.
This means a net profit of $1,
45S.33 on every share of stock in
the company, without even taking
into account the considerable sums
of money which may be realized
from the sale of dye-woods, medic
inal plants, wild rubber, and other
gums abounding in the forest
BUT SUPPOSE AGAIN
That only one-half of this can be
realized; what then?
One share of stock is worth $200
par value. One half of $1,458.33 is
$729.16, or more than three times
the par value of the stock.
That It will require 10 years to ge't
this lumber out; this will stili mean
an annual average dividend of $72.91
per share, or r,6' per cent on the
par value of the stock.

W'c have 2,xoo,ooo,000 feet of lum
ber in sight. To quiet your doubts,
we call it only one-fourth of this, or
700.000,000 feet. This Fhould net
us $50 per thousand, or $35,000,000.
We cut this estimate down to one
half of that, or $17,500,000. This
gives us a profit of $1,458.33 on each
and every share of stock, which
looks so large that we cut it in two
and make it $729.16 per share, and
still, basing our estimate on the
proceeds from 1-1 C of the visible re
sources, our average annual divi
dends will amount to per cent
of the par value of our stock, even
if every share were issued and out
standing. BUT HERE IS ANOTHRER POINT.
Only a small proportion of our
stock has been sold, and it is more
likely that we will never need to
sell more than one-half of our stock.
This will not only double our divi
dends, but double our holdings as
well, since the unsold stock will be
issued as stock dividends.
