Industrial commission in providing

TerniH That Have Ile'u Mailc.
In regard to the concession granted
the National Neck Yoke company, it
was agreed that, in consideration ol
the permanent location of the con t cm
plated new factory of said company in
the city of Rock Lland, entailing an
investment in buildings of from $12,
Omi to $18,00(1, the board of control ol
the Industrial commission recommend
the purchase of a suitable site to be do
nated to said company, title lo which is
to be held ineserow by the Centra!
Trust & Savings bank, trustee, until
the buildings and improvements are
completed, according to the plans sub
mitted, and free from encumbrances
The location chosen is on the coiner
of Sixth avenue and First street and
contains 2.515 acres.
In due time a committee, composed
of Messrs. l.aikln, SehalTer and Dart,
was appointed to examine the accounts:
of the company and ascertain if the
'terms of the agreement had been ful-
feeding by more thi"i $5.0no the max
inuim s,i!)U!a,ctj in . contract
The plant consists of two buildings
a factory 100x2X foot and a warehouse
o2x250 feet. At present the company
employs about 40 bands, but they con
template installing another branch to
the business which would mean the
employment of at least loo workmen,
for whom ample room was provided
when tbe. plant was erected.

happily, very few. This almost unani

MAKE CALL AT WATERTOWK
Clmiriiian Adkins Wui'in in Praise of
the Manner in Which Local
Institution Is Managed.
The house committee of the state
legislature on charitable institutions
was in this city today after sending
the morning looking over the Water
town hospital. Nine of the 13 members
of the committee were here, and they
were accompanied by their wives, and
in some cases their daughters, so that
the entire junketing party numbered
over 30. Hon. II. L. Wheelan, Mayor
George W. McCaskrin and J. G. Hun
limn met the party at the Milwaukee
depot and escorted them on a sight
seeing trip through this city and to
Rock Island arsenal. The trip was
made in a special trolley car. The
committeemen present were Chairman
Adkins, and Representatives Troyer
Naylor, McCollum. Finley, Dolin, Well
born, llardell, and Rigney.
Kind Iilt'iil CiinillliotiN.
Chairman Adkins stated to an Argus
representative that t!e- committee
found that almost ideal conditions ex
isted in the hospital at Watertown, and
that in his opinion it is one of the bos
conducted institutions'- in the state.
What struck him most forcibly, he
said, was the fact thati there was so
little demons! ration among the patients
classed as the violent ones, and that
a greater degree of freedom seems to
exist throughout the institution than
in most of its kind. The committee
has visited most of the charitable in
Simmons in tne state, and the praise
accorded the Watertown hospital -was
barked up by real knowledge of ex
isting conditions and speaks well for
the work of Dr. Taylor, the superin
tendent. The party spent but a short time iu
leek Island, arriving at 12:o0 and de
parting again at 1:30 for Peoria.

lu ce Members of tho City Council I
A fleeted if Its Force Is 1m- '
Colonel F. E. Ilobbs, command-
nt at Rock Island arsenal, in re-
ponsc to an inquiry made about two
eeks ago, has received a new inter
relation of the war department or
ter relating to the political activit
f employes of the department. Thi
rder prohibits employes from engag
ng- iu politics. Colonel Ilobbs made th-.
iniuiry with a view to dcterminin;
vhether the order-was intended t
orbid employes being candidates fo
Uice. The interpretation receive'
s to the effect that no employe ma.
lecoine a candidate for any politic-p
jllice. The order is of considerabl
nterest in the three cities, and par
icularly in Hock Island, where fo
mine years arsenal employes havi
lcld seats in the city council as rci
esentatives of different wards, an
.t vthe present time there are thre
ildermen who are employed at tin
Mny Serve Tonim.
One of these, Frank Lawler of thi
Sixth ward, was elected a year ago
The other two. Alderman W. 1)
Jochran or the Fifth ward and Al
lerman Charles Borst of the Scventl
ivard, were elected this spring
Whether the order would make i
lecessary for the aldermen clecte
iince it was posted to resign eithc
their political position or their place:
it the arsenal is not known. Coloe
lobbs informed The Argus toda
I hat if tlie matter is presented to bin
he will take the matter up with tin
'department. "I do not know wheth
T the intention is to forbid tho hold
ing of poliical oflices already ac(uir-
'd or not. The matter has not come
ip," said Colonel Ilobbs.
Men DM MlH'll IIitc.
If this was the intention of the cU
iiartinent, it would be necessary foi
:he three Rock Island aldermen tc
either give up their employmet ot
the. arsenal or to resign their seats
in the council. It is not likely, how
ver, that such a rule would be en
t'orced, even though employes in I he
uture would be prevented from be
ing candidates for office. If th
hree aldermen should be forced ti
esign their seats in the council, It
.vould cost the city something like
,000 to hold special elections tc
ill the vacancies.
The order has aroused a general
.1 rotes t from the employes and from
jitizens in general. While it does
not deprive the employe of the right
to vote at either general or primary
elections, it deprives them of the right
to hold party or public offices and
thus takes away some 01 tne verj'
important privileges of citizenship.

The Most Common Cause of Suffering
Rheumatism causes more pain and
suffering than any other disease, for
the reason that it is the most common
of all ills, and it is certainly gratifying
lo sufferers to know that Chamber
lain's Liniment will afford relief, and
make rest and sleep possible. In many
cases the relief from pain, which is
at first temporary, has become perma
nent, while in old people subject to
chronic rheumatism, often brought on
by dampness or changes in the weath
er, a permanent cure cannot be ex
pected; the relief from pain which this
liniment affords is alone worth many
times its cost. 25 and 50 cent sizos

Time tells which is best and most
reliable. For 70 years Perry Davis
