Alas, and yet alas again! Must Rock
Island suffer,, too, from Davenport's En
forced goodness? Must we share the
martyrdom of the injured neighbor
across the water? It seems so.
Schuetzen park is in danger. The
prospects are it will be closed next
season. Suburban island seems doom
ed to go with-it into oblivion. This is
getting on Rock Island's toes. We
could stand by and see the screens
taken out of the windows of the Dav:
enport saloons and the 10 o'clock clos
ing rule enforced without wincing. We
could even bear rhe obliteration of
llucktown and-Sunday closing without
suffering unendurable pain. -It was
something of a jolt to know that Tur

tin;' public, but. wu stood that man
fully. Now, however, there is no dis
guising the fact that we are stun:;

more liberal terms from the Daven

at Grand Isle, though Manager Kuehi
