ance. WIIIIK STII.I. lOVMMI'.S.
The committees renewed the effort
to complete the $100,000 today, and
will prepare to make complete reports
to the general committee this eveninrj.
The situation at the present time is
exceptionally bright, not only for the
success of the canvass for the factory
fund, but for the Greater Rock Island.
n:s MM II TO ( IT V.
The spirit of cooperation and local
patriotism which is being centered on
the effort to nlace in the hands of a
reliable hoard of trustees a large funj
for the purpose of bringing new in
dustries to this city means much for
Rock Island, The spirit itself is worth
much to the city, r.nd spells advance
ment. What the fund will mean may
be best seen by an examination of the
table of results at Terre Haute, where
the same project was undertaken some
years ago. The results at Terre Haute
are shown at the head of the column.
i m:si: i wr ;i:s.
Rock Island has all the natural ad
vantages that one could wish, and witn
a greater population, more industries
such as will he brought here by the
Industrial convnission with the means
being placed in its hands, the city wifi
have still greater advantages, and will
be in a position to compete with any in
the Mississippi valley for commercial
and industrial rank,
Minn: m iTuvs itr. r.i r.i.
The Booster button committee is re
ceiving additional supplies from the
manufacturers, and in a few days the
entire city will be supplied with the
Greater Rock Island emblems. The
buttons are on sale in various parts cf
the city, and new supplies are beinn
rapidly distributed by the committee.
