William M. Reck, chairman of th.3
'executive committee, late this afternoon
announced that the canvass for a fac
tory fund of $100,000 has resulted in
there arc still
others who have
but intend to do
so. The canvass
for the fund hai
been in progress
but a little over
three, weeks, and the rebults arc a cred
it to the patriotism of Rock Island cit
izens, and indicate the loyalty of the
people to Rock Island and its interests.
The fund has grown steadily from the
moment it was started, and not a day
has passed in the three weeks but that
there has been an increase in the
S'-nount subscribed, excepting the holi
day and Sundays.

The movement for a big factory fund
for the city was started a: a meeting a

to present to the business men of the
city a proposition to bring an impor
tant new industry here. About $40,000
was required to carry through the pro
ject which the committee presented,
and after it had been fully discussed,
the meeting voted, on motion of L.
Simon, to start a fund of $100,000 for
such purposes. Mr. Simon maintained
that $100,000 could as easily be raised
as could $40,000, and he started the lis:
with a subscription of $1,000.
IN SMAI.I. IOl VI S.
The $118,250 is made up of many sub
scriptions ranging in amounts frcn $23
to $7,500. It can be readily seen from
this that the subscriptions have been
general throughout the city, and that w
large number of people, several hun
dred, in fact, have helped in the move
ment by subscribing to the fund.
The movemenc was fully organized
before any effort was made to secure
subscriptions, but at the meeting at
which the project was started fully $20,
003 was guaranteed, and later the men
who pledged themselves at that time
raised the amount of their subscrip
tions in several instances.
Mir -i.os i::, iiowi: 1:11. -
While the $100,000 originally sought
is more than secured, the committee de
sires it announced that BY NO MEANS
IS THE SUBSCRIPTION LIST CLOS
ED. The committee, in view of the
fact that there are many who desire to
subscribe to the fund who have not yet
done so, has decided to keep the sub
scription lists open for a time in order
that these citizens may add their names
to the honor roll of boosters, and their
subscriptions to the fund which wi'l
change the city from ssmply Rock Is
land to Greater Rock Island in reality
Those who have not yet subscribed.
however, should do so at an early mo
mentt in order that the complete funJ
may be placed at the disposal of the
board of trustees as quickly as possible
pi iii.imi i:oi.i. i. i : it .
In connection with the decision to
hold open the subscription list for
time longer, the committee hss also de
cided to withhold the publication of the
roll of honor until a few days later. It
had been intended to pu'oiish the list
of subscribers with the amounts given
hy each, Monday, but in fairness to tho:
who have not subscribed yei, but desire to
do ro, the, publication of the roll will be
postponed for a short time in order to
allow them to get on the list before
The "DO IT NOW" motto of the com
mitlee is even more apt now, for the
publication of the roM will be delayed
but a few days, and those who wisl
their subscriptions to be included wi.l
have to heed the committee's advice
and subscribe al once.
Did (.lists as ;r:vrs.
In order to make it convenient for
those who have not subscribed, but
wish to, the committee has authorized
the following druggists, who have been
receiving subscriptions, to continue to
