Committee Named to Assist in Dispos
ing of Sufficient Shares of Stock
in Rock Island.
At a meeting of the Itock Island In
dustrial commission last evening, with
business men of the city generally, the
commission adopted a resolution giving
its unqualified endorsement to the
Flr&t Savings Bunk Life Insurance
company and its organizers, Paul
Kersch, Milton Denney, and James L.
Ferguson, and also took steps to ma
terially assist these gentlemen In plac
ing sufficient stock in the new company
in Rock Island in order to insure this
city the home office of the company.
The meeting was presided over by
Hon. T. J. Medill, president of the com
mission. Secretary Mayer Levi aoti
as secretary. At the opening of the
meeting Mr. Levi read a few letters
from bankers, insurance men, and oth
ers, including Samuel Alschuler, Sena
tor A. J. Hopkins, and men of h.'gh po
sition, regarding the charac ter and abil
ity of Mr. Denney and Mr. Ferguson.
I'lnn 1m I.liiln-1.
The plan of operation of the new
Insi ranee company, which has been
discussed lo some extent heretofore in
Th Argus, was explained by the three
org! nizers of the company, and the ad-j
van ages Rock Island would gain by
the location of the home office here
werj also shown. Mr. Kersch pointed
out that with industrial and commer
cial growth, a city's loan facilities must
nec 'ssarily increase, and he showed
tha' no Institution better Increases the
crer it facilities of a city than does the
hoD e office of a legal reserve life in
suri nee company. lie calculated that
the rompany's location here would mean
in 15 years an increase or $5,000,000 at
least in the bank deposits of the city
f roi i this source alone.
Men the Only Problem.
Mr. Denney and Mr. Ferguson explain
ed the business side of the proposition,
and showed that success in the life in
sur; nee business is simply a matter of
cap ble management, and the selection
of lien able lo produce the business.
He mowed that $40,0im is all the work
ing capital required, the $ 1 10,000 addi
tion il to this amount received from
the sale of the stock of $100,000 capi
tals ation being deposited in savings
bants in the state and certified to the
stat 3 insurance commissioner as a guar
antee of the legal reserve fund which
Insures the policy holder that the com
pany will meet the obligations of its
comracts. Mr. Ferguson showed that
witl even a moderate business, the
company can not fail to be a financial
suexess, and he also demonstrated that
life insurance is a business where the
invtstor in stock stands practically no
risk of losing the money invested.
ItrMolu Hon llool.
After the matter had been thorough
ly discussed by the organizers and
Otto Huber, William M. Reck, Charles
Mcllugh, Dr. G. L. Kyster, and others,
and the endorsement of H. E. Casteel,
Carl Hellpenstell, C. J. Larkin and oth
ers of the bankers of the city, who were
not present, had been expressed to the
meeting by telephonic message, a mo
tion was carried that a committee com-
posed of Otto Huber, F. W. Bahnsen,
and Dr. G. L. Eyster prepare resolu
tions expressing the endorsement of
the commission. The resolutions re
ported by the committee and unani
mously adopted, are as follows:
"The Industrial commission of Rock
Island hereby gives its unqualified en
dorsement to the First Savings Bank
Life Insurance company, and to its or
ganizers, Milton Denney, James L.
Ferguson and Paul Kersch.
"This enterprise being a valuable ac
quisition to Rock Island, and a good
investment for its citizens, the Indus
trial commission of Rock Island here
by tenders to the organizers thereof,
its hearty cooperation in the consum
mation of their plans."
To Actively Cooperate.
In order that the city may secure this
institution, which is assured success in
its organization, a committee to co
operate actively in the work of the or
ganizers in placing the 200 shares of
stock in Rock Island was selected.
Those named to assist in the work are
Dr. G. L. Eyster, W. 11. Marshall, I. S.
White, Otto Huber, H. E. Casteel, and
Hugh E. Curtis. This committee was
selected by a committee composed of
William M. Reck, Charles Mcllugh, and
Hope Thompson, In conference with
There have already been subscribed
555 shares of the stock, and of these 135
are held in Rock Island. With 200
more shares owned here, the company's
location of its home office here can be
controlled. The balance of the stock is
to lie disposed of among the bankers
in different cities in the state, these
banks being named as the local de
positories of the legal reserve.
The company promises to be an im
portant acquisition to the business life
of the city.

The scope of the exhibits at the
Watertown hospital fair, which opened
esterday and continues over tomor-
ow, was a surprise to the many visit
ors at the fair yesterday. Opening in i
tho morning the fair was visited by!
many people from Rock Island ani
Moline and over a thousand of the in
mates themselves occupied the grand
stand or visited the various stands
The articles manufactured at the in
stitution are shown in a small build
ing erected permanently for such pu
loses at one corner of the enclosed
space. It is a small frame structure
but contains sufficient room for a dis
play of samples of the various indus
trial departments of the hospital. The
furniture shown, all of which is the
work of one patient whose skill in the
work was recently discovered by the
attendants, includes several dining
tables, leather rockers, mission style
chairs, clothes closets and other pieces.
If displayed in a furniture store tho
pieces could not be distinguished from
those of regular manufacture, so well
are they put together and finished.
The exhibit of another male patient
who formerly did metal work, consists
of hammers, screw drivers, hammered
copper and tin trays and other arti
cles, the finish of which seems almost
ncredible as work of a man mentally
unbalanced. The maker of the arti
cles stands near while the exhibit is
admired by visitors and takes appar
ent and fitting pride in his handiwork.
By Violent Inmate.
Other exhibits of male patients in
clude tin ware, such as pails of various
sizes, and small cooking utensils, burnt
wood work in pretty effects in different
fancy and useful articles, a few boats
strongly put together and smaller
novelties and trinkets. Some wicker
work shown was made by a male pa
tient who is seriously demented and
had to be secured in a chair befoie
he could work on the articles. Once
his mind was diverted to the wicker
work he turned out the willow bas
kets and working boxes.
Show Woimi'i Art.
The articles shown as the work of
women inmates include food and cook
ing exhibits and a great variety of
fancy work. Two hand painted oil
pictures are shown, the work of a for
mer inmate, now cured, who did equal
ly good painting while an inmate. The
paintings are held at high prices. In

blacksmith department and studio are
located on the grounds. The cooking

by the patients mostly in their owl
wards, the best of working equipment
is provided. Some of (as patients pro

supervision; others must be overseen
and difficulty is met in keeping them
interested in the work.
Product of Farm.
Outside of the exhibition hall is the
agricultural exhibit, including corn
pumpkins, squash, turnips and oihr
products, all raised on the institution
farm by the patients. The two poultry
ents are located near by and in thehi
are several cages of thoroughbrei
fowls of different breeds, pigeons,
geese, ducks and turkeys. Nine stock
stalls are occupied by registered cows,
hogs and sheep raised at the hospital
stock farm, attended to by the inmates
under supervision of employes.

At the west end of the enclosed
ground is the grand stand which will
seat 2,000 people, near by is the baud
tand, a merry-go-round steams at the
north end and refreshments are vend-.
ed in various stands nearby. A "nigger-baby"
stand is attended by a pa
tient who gleefully told yesterday of
his day's earnings.
It was the intention to have a bal
loon ascension as one of the attrac
tions and charge an admission, but
the aeronaut met with an accident
and could not appear, so the authon-
ies decided to charge no admission.
The fair will continue over tomorrow.
Yesterday was chilly but nevertheless
many visitors were present and more
came today. All articles exhibited
with the exception of the food pro
ducts, furniture and tinware, which
can be used in the institution, are for
sale and many articles found ready
purchasers yesterday. All money ovtr
the cost of raw material used is given
to the patients who made the exhibits.
Dr. W. E. Taylor deserves praise
for maintaining the institution in such
a manner as to permit of so commend
