BUILDING A' BIG HOLDER
Work on New Retorts and Governors
to Be Commenced in a Few Days
at Molire Plant.
When the People's Power company
completes the new equipment now un
der construction at its plant in the
west end of Moline its patrons will be
furnished with a much more satisfac
tory service, ami an even pressure of
pas. Of late the capacity of the plant
lias been taxed because of the enor
mous sale of gas stoves and the many
additional connections made as a result.
It frequently has happened that the
pressure during the period of greatest
consumption, just preceding meal hours,
that the pressure has fallen very low.
InNtnllinic it Holder.
The company is now installing a big
new gas holder at the foot of Fourth
street, and this will materially increase
the capacity of the plant. The new
holder is 100 feet in diameter and is to
be 00 feet high. Approximately 15.000
rivets are required, and the merry
tattoo of the air pressure hammers as
they fasten these rivets can be heard
for some distance from the work. Tho
holder will have a capacity of over half
a million feet of gas. It is consider
ably larger than either of the two pres
In a few days work is to be com
menced on the new retorts, and these,
too, will, enlarge the capacity of the
plant. These, with the new governors
which are soon to be installed, will in
sure a much more even pressure, and
eliminate the difficulties which have
been experienced during the summer.

there is plenty of fun. causing heart v
wholesouled laughter; bright, witty
dialogue, reasonable and logical com
plications and situations, set in an a
mospliere of art, with a touch of life
in Bohemia, and there is not one word
which can offend the most sensitive
nature. "My Buy, Jack" is a story of
irienastup. love and truth, and nu
greater sermon has ever been preacn-
ed from any pulpit by the most emi
nent divines of the day, than can hi
drawn from the presentation of "Mv
Boy, Jack." "Jack Padden," the hero.
is the acme of young American man
noott. ih is true, toyat, chivalrous an:i
self sacrificing, he is the kind of box-
that in the time of trouble, goes to th
front and dies for a principle, and i
these days of hustle, worry, intrigue
and selfishness, it is refreshing to
come in contact with one of natures
noblemen, and such is "Jack Padden."
whose unconscious motto is. "Do unti
others as you would have them do unto
you, and yet he will make you laugh.
Edwin Milton Royle is responsible for
him, and he may well be proud of "My
"Man of the Hour" Following it?
presentation at Springfield a few weeks
ago. "The Man of the Hour," the play
which appears at the Illinois next Tues
day night, was accorded the rather
unusual distinction of an editorial no
tice bv Editor Clendenin of the State
Register, in which this well known
writer and politician took occasion to
call attention of Springfield citizens !
the. lessons to be learned in the play.
In his editorial comment Mr. Clendenin
said: "George Broadhurst's play,
"The Man of the Hour" has more than
mere entertaining quality in it. It has
an educational value to it inasmuch as
it is well planned demonstration of
what actually occurs in American poli
tics. Of course "The Man of the Hour"
is dramatized fiction, but George Broad
hurst obviously constructed his play
to make it harmonize as nearly as pos
sible with actual events of tho times
as they occur in franchise fights in our
American cities, eome of which are ir.
the clutches of organized greed. This
play demonstrates how some profes
sional politicians pose as being friends
of the people; how they plan electloi
of men whom they hope to use to fur
ther their own thieving desires after
election, and how the "boss" schemes
tp make public office a private snap
for unscrupulous individuals and or
ganizations by abuse or bribery. In
this play the "Man of the Hour" is a
young man, honest, sincere, determin
ed to adhere to principle whatever the
result may be. Great losses confront I
him. His family honor is threatened. I
His sweetheart spurns him, and all thj
world seems to turn against him at the'
critical moment when lie is prepare It
to veto a franchise which the "bosses"
and a corrupt corporation had drawn
up to rob the people of their rights
and to reap rich profits for themselves.
The "Man of the Hour" mayor of th.?
city follows his mother's advice to
let honesty guide him whether life or
death result. Then comes the grand
climax. The grafters are trapped.
Their cunning schemes ar exposed.
Their rottenness is revealed. They
find themselves thwarted and outwit
ted by the honest mayor of the city,
and in disgrace they withdraw their
franchise. "The Man of the Hour"
triumphs in his honesty. His sweet
heart sees the truth and returns o
him, and there is happy restoration t
love and avoidance of ' the calamities
which confronted him when he was t )
choose between right and wronp, be
tween money and principle. More- of
such plays are needed for the Ameri
can stage and the American peop'.o
In these days of modern political
"hossism"and graft, such as exist in
some great cities, and such as hn
been exposed in St. Louis, where there
was a gigantic franchise steal; in Phil
adelphia, where grafters looted tin-, pub
lic treasury, and in San Francisco,
where Mayor Schmitz is now in jail
as a result of the exposures of the
grafting by the executive and hii
"boss," Abe Reuf more such play1;,
we repeat, will serve to effectually edu
cate tho American public as to tho
machinations of "boss" rule. Such .1
play deserves more than passing com
mendation. There are too few like it."
