The work of securing subscriptions
to the $100,000 factory fund was con
tinued again today with the same en
thusiasm as yesterday. The work is
progressing in fine shape, and the com

couragement.'' The business' men who
have been approached for subscriptions
have in practically every instance
promptly signed the list for the amount
requested, and some whose conserva

At the Rock Island Club last evening
a general meeting of the 17 soliciting
committees was held, and the day's ex
periences discussed by the canvassers.
It was found that of 78 men approached
during the day, all but four had given
their signatures for subscriptions, and
these four expressed their interest in
the wci-k, and regretted an inability to
assist. It is expected that three of these
will, before the canvass is completed,
make some subscription to the fund.

The spirit of the undertaking is
spreading, and the canvass will accom

a. unity of purpose to advance Rock Is
land in every possible way. The boost

out the city.
As a result of the exchange of exper

took up the work again with renewed
vigor, and better prepared to accom
