She shadow,of right on his side, for he
ipplied for the charter on the basis uf
he river Improvements already put In
y . his" firm. Heinzman wanted, the
improvements already existing con
demned and sold as a public utility to
the highest bidder. He offered further
guarantees as to future improvements.
In addition were other and more po
tent arguments proffered behind closed
doors. Many cases resolved themselves
into a bald question of cash. Others
demanded diplomacy. Jobs, fat con
tracts, business favors, influence, wero
all flung out freely, bribes as absolute
as though stamped with the dollar
mark. Newspapers all over the state
were pressed into service. Among
these delicate and complicated cross
currents Newmark moved silent, cold,
secret. He seemed to understand them,
lo play with them, to manipulate them
is elements of the game.-
The fight endured through most of
the first half of the session. At. the
last, however, the "bill passed the board
The company had Its charter.
"It's cost us plenty, anyway," Orde
said when the charter bill became a
law. "The proposition's got a load
on It. It will take us a long time to
get out of debt. The river driving
won't pay quite so big as we thought
it would," he concluded, with a rue
ful little laugh.
"It will pay plenty well enough," re
plied Newmark decidedly, "and It
gives us a vantage point to work
from. You don't suppose we are go
ing to quit at river driving, do you?
We want to look around for some
timber of our own. There's where the
big money Is. And perhaps we can
buy a schooner or two and go Into the
carrying trade. Newmark & Orde
means something to these fellows
!N the course of the next eight years
Newmark & Orde floated high on
that flood of apparent prosperity
that attends a business well con
ceived and passably well managed.
The Boom and Driving company made
money, of course, for with the margin
of CO per cent or thereabouts necessi
tated by the temporary value of the
improvements good years could hardly
fail to bring good returns. This, it
will be remembered, was a stock com
pany. With the profits from that busi
ness the two men embarked on a sep
" Orde lived at ease in a new boose
of some size, surrounded by grounds.
He kept two servants. A blooded
team of horses drew the successor to
the original buckboard. Newmark
owned a ea.il yacht of five or six tons,
in which. .onite solitary, be -took his
only pleasure. Both were considered
men of substance and property, as in
deed they were. y
Immediately" after the granting of
the charter to drive the river the part
ners had offered them an opportunity
of acquiring about 30.000.000 feet of
timber remaining from Morrison &
Daly's original holdings. Orde finally
completed the purchase on long time
notes. Below the booms they erected
a mill. The following winter Orde
spent in the woods. By spring he had
banked about G.000,000 feet
At the end of the fifth year the op
portunity came to get possession of
two lake schooners. Orde at once sug
gested the contract for a steam barge.
Towing was then In Its infancy. Orde
thought that a steam barge could be
built powerful enough not only to car
ry its own hold and deck loads, but to
tow after It the two schooners. New
mark agreed with him. Thus the firm
went into the carrying trade. The
most Important acquisition was that
of the northern peninsula timber.
Most operators called the white pine
along and back from the river inex
haustible. But Orde saw the time not
far distant when the world would be
compelled to look elsewhere for Its
lumber, and he turned his eyes to the
almost unknown north. After a long
investigation he purchased 300.000,000
feet. This was to be paid for mostly
by the firm's notes, secured by Its oth

"W h y d o n't
you let him con
tinue your business?" smiled Carroll.
"By the time Bobby's grown up thia
business will all be closed out," re
plied Orde seriously.
Three years after the conversation
last mentioned, which would have
made Bobby just eight, Orde came
home on a summer evening, his face
alight with satisfaction.
He believed he had found the oppor
tunity, twenty years distant, for which
he had been looking so long.
Orde and his wife sat together on
the top step. He slipped bis arm about
her. They breathed deep of the happi
ness that filled their lives. Two shad
owy figures defined themselves ap
proaching up the concrete walk.
"Hello i" called Orde.
"Hello!" a voice responded.
"Taylor and Clara," said Orde to
Carroll, with satisfaction, "Just the
man I wanted to see." The lawyer
and his wife mounted the steps.
Clara Taylor stopped short and con
sidered Ordo for a moment
"Let us away," she said seriously to
Carroll. "My prophetic soul tells me
they are going to talk business, and if
any more business is talked in my
presence I shall expire. Come. Car
roll; let's wander down the street and
see Mina Heinzman."
The two sauntered away.
"Look here, Taylor," broke in Orde
abruptly; "you told me the other day
you had fifteen or twenty thousand you
wanted to place somewhere."
"Yes," replied Taylor.
"Well, I believe I have just the prop
"What is it?'
"California pine," replied Orde.
"California pine," repeated Taylor.
"California's a long way off, and there
is no market. Is there?"
"It's cheap," replied Orde succinct
ly. "I don't say It will be good for I
immediate returns, but in twenty or
thirty years it ought to pay big on a
small investment made now."
"Laugh all you please." rejoined
Orde, "but I tell you Michigan and
Wisconsin pine Is doomed. Twenty or
thirty years from now there won't be
any white pine for sale."
"Nonsense!" objected Taylor. "You're
"All right," said Orde quietly. "Well,
what do you think of Indiana as a
good field for timber investment?"
"Indiana!" cried Taylor, amazed.
"Why, there's no timber there; it's a

price of $S an acre," replied Orde.

Tax - Rate Increased to $8.90. Mo
line's tax rate under the new assess
ment on which taxes will be collected
between now and the latter part of
March will be $8.90 on each $1,000
actual valuation. The rate a year ago
was $3.45. The Increase of 45 cents is
largely the result of an Increase in
the tax levy of the board of education
of Moline occupied with an Increase
in the state levy which was ordered
some time ago. The Moline school
levy was increased from $115,000 to
$125,000, largely as a result of the in
crease in salaries granted the teachers
last spring and to provide for the
growth and improvement of Moline's
school system. The increase In the
pay of teachers proved to be one of the
popularly supported concessions that
the school board has undertaken in
years, and sentiment was practically
unanimous that the teachers of the
grade schools deserved all that they
