It would be almost superfluous to
dilate upon the significance of tho in
fusion of extensive new money interests
in tho Hock Island riow company, as
related in the new3 columns of yes
terday's Argus. Needless, too, would
it seem to comment on the nature and
extent of popular gratification that at
tended the announcement that capital
originating in Bock Island, and which
has already been identified with 'many
of tho great local projects, has found
reinvestment in an enterprise that has
been associated with the cilv's er.rly
history, its progress and development.
It is enough to know that a big fac
tory has the renewed sinews of activ
ity and the resources at its command
for expansion upon a scale that vill
make it not only one ot the most sub
stantial, but one of the greatest in Its
line in all the country.
There are great things ahead Tor the

and as a labor employing Industry,

A greater industry for Greater Rock
Island is assured.
The sturdy men who go to make
up that vast labor organization known
as the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica, are sometimes" referred to as "coal
diggers." They constitute a great
power in the nation,' not only because
their organization is one of the largest
in the world, but because there is
something back of It greater than mere
physical force, and more effective than
union. That potential force is manly
cooperation, with iegard for generals-hip
and the selection of men as lead
ers whose character and capacity war
rant the confidence of the men.
Reference Is here made more partic
ularly of the national organization,
and its wisdom in having chosen for
its leader for many years past. Presi
dent John Mitchell a man of more
lhan ordinary genius, and. an exponent
of the rights of labor whose general
ship is unexcelled, and whose knowl
edge of justice as applied in many
great struggles has brought peace
where strife was wont to reign.
A more ideal relationship between
men and leader could not be found
than that as exemplified at Indianap
olis when the miners tendered Presi
dent Mitchell, upon the latter's retire
ment, a large .pecuniary gift as a token
of their confidence in him and appre
ciation of his efforts in behalf of the
President Mitchell's eloquent address
in declining the gift for himself but
requesting that it be given to Mrs.
Mitchell to be used for the education
of their sons, was a further evidence
of the kind of manhood and genuine
ness shown at this great convention of

of admiration of the public, who com

future of the miners' national organ

those which now relinquish hold upon
the national presidency.
An Opportunity Not to be Neglected
If the present council neglects any
essential concession to be made to
the people residing in the section of
the South Rock Island territory desir
ing admission to the city of Rock Is
land, it will lay itself liable to well
merited public censure. A do-nothing
tendency unfortunately has been all
too frequently manifest in numerous
instances during the existence of the
present council where matters have
developed requiring positive action.
The simple proposition of adopting a
name for the new Seventh aventle
boulevard afforded an instance of this.
Merelv because a difference of opinion
imong those interested developed, the
aldermen ran away from the subject
like a lot of scared sheep, and per
mitted it to be pigeonholed. The alder
men, or a number of them at least,
were too timid to exercise tneir own
good judgment in the premises.
There have been other instances
where a failure to evince courage of
conviction has been shown. But the mat
ter of territorial annexation is one on
which the public is net inclined to tol
erate any foolishness. There is no
variance in popular sentiment and no
occasion for any. The city ought
to be only too glad to receive the ap
plication from the neighboring peoph?
to become members of a common mu
nicipality. The city should be gra
cious enough to welcome them with
out quibbling or debate, or dilly-dally
ing over conditions. Give them every
thing reasonable they ask, even if it
becomes necessary to stretch a point
to do it. There was no reason, and,
in fact, not a particle of excuse, for
failure to act completely last night, as
far as the granting of all conditions
The territorial annexation proposi
tion now before the people of Rock
Island and South Rock Island means a
great deal in the way of mutual gain.
To Rock Island, it means the acquisi
tion of at least 2,000 more people be
fore the next census is taken. To
South Rock Island, it means, or should
mean, every form of municipal advan
tage in permanent street and sidewalk
grades, in public lights, and in water
mains, in fire and police protection, in
school advantages and mail service. U
is up to Rock island to extend to its
neighbors who desire to become a part
of the city, everything that is asked
for or expected.
The people of Rock Island have
shown their loyalty to the city and
their determination to make it grow
by their marvelous accomplishment
raising $140,000 for the upbuilding of
the city, the impelling motive of which
undertaking was that it Involved two
things industrial development and
territorial expansion. Now that the
matter of annexation has been brought
p to the council for action, the people
will be very apt to hold every officer
of the municipal government account
able for failure to do his duty, andJ
that without delay.
And it is proper that they should

Callander. "I'll wait until he is In

Don't you feel the approach of another

The three young men sat in the shade
of a huge mass of rock that marked
the end of a long, irregular ridge of
hills which jutted out from the main
range to the west. At the mouth of
a tiny canyon just visible from the
rocks a cluster of summer cottages
showed white against the brown and
gray of their surroundings.
Georgi Callander grunted, stretched
his bulking body and took out a pair
of fieldglasses from a case at UN side.
"No. Folsom," he replied at length:
"I don't feel unusually foolish at pres

declared from the opposite bank.

turning to Gaitley. "I suppose you're
