A- SI-'.l'.N 111 OTIIi:i(S.
That the Rock Island movement for
the placing of a fund of $100,000 in the
hands of a board of trustees for use in
securing new industries for the city is
attracting wide attention is becoming
more and more evident. In yesterday's
issue of the Volks Zeitung, the Rock
Island German newspaper, an interest
ing item appears in this connection,
which translated is as follows:
'The fact that the movement of se
curing a $100,000 factory fund for Rock
Isl.-yid is beginning to attract wide at
tention has already been stated. The
press in other cities is holding forth
this enterprise of the people of Rock
Island as an act of great loyalty to the
interests of their city, for which a rap
id development seems assured. The
Iowa Reform, an influential German
paper of Davenport, speaks of the move
ment editorially as follows:
Rock Island seems to understand
boosting better than Davenport. In
stead of sending out so-called trade ex
cursions, the citizens and business men
on the other side of the river are rais
ing a $100X00 factory fund, and if not
all signs fail, this large fund will soon
be secured. When the subscription
corrvnittees began their work, they had
in less than no time raised the amount
cf $20,000. They have now secured
ever S75.00C. more than two thirds of
the entire required amount. This was
accomplished in a few days, and is cer
tainly a result that elicits the highest
regard for the local patriotism of the
Rock Islanders and their untiring ef
forts to secure new industrial establish
ments for their city. As Rock Island is
also in position to offer free factory
site, there can be no doubt that the
prospects of locating there in the very
near future a considerable number of
rew industries are most promising.'"
This expression from the Davenport
paper is the more striking because of
the fact that it comes from a represen.
tative German publication in Daven
port, Rock Island's sharpest competitor
in commercial and industrial circles in
this part of the-country. The Daven
port comment is only one instance of
the attention which has been attracted
to this city by the success of the move
ment. The executive committee is
credited by Rock Island people who
have given the matter attention with
understanding boosting, and the same
attitude is taken by others outside of
the city. The work was taken up here
cn a solid and substantial basis, and
the committee has been working with
the future rather than the immediate
precsnt. in mind, and has not hoped to
bring about the "Greater Rock Island"
in a day's time. There has been no
boom spirit in the project, but a goon
business proposition furthered by a
MV M.W SI IIS IMI'TIONS.
Among the contributions today wa
one from Phil Mitchell, for $5,000.
While the reports of the canvassing
committees have not been made in full
to the executive committee, and the
total can not be announced, there have
been a number of goodly subscriptions
made since the last report, and the fund
is growing steadily near the $100,000
mark. A number of smaller subscrip
tions have been made at the drug stores
whose proprietors are acting as agent3
of the committee to receive subscrip
tions of $25, $50, $75, $100 and up, arid
when these are reported the total will
be materially increased.
