Mayer Levi and Charles GofT, secre
taries respectively of the Rock Island
Industrial commission and the Rock
Island Business Men's association,
held a conference this morning with
Postmaster H. A. J. McDonald to con
sider the complaints of enumerators,
particularly those in the business dis
trict, that it would be impossible for
them to insure a complete return of
their districts unless they had cooper
ation from those who are interested
in seeing that the city is credited with
all that rightfully belonged to it in
numerical citizenship strength. Post
master McDonald immediately got
into communication with Mr. Wallace
over the long distance telephone and
secured his promise that he would-be
in the city tonight to give all the
aid at his command to simplify the
To Distribute Blank.
Moline and other cities have the
same conditions that are annoying
Rock Island to contend with in the
opnsus canvass. Moline has just se
cured the appointment of a deputy su
pervisor, and, with the cooperation of
the .commercial bodies, has system
atically entered upon the work in the
full assurance that not a single soul
w!Tl be overlooked.
The greatest difficulty that has been
met here is in obtaining the names of
the occupants of rooming houses and
flat buildings. They are people for
the most part who spend little time
outs'dc their sleeping hours in their
loppings. They go to work in the
er.rly morning, take their meals at
restaurants, and do not return until
late in the evening. William Schaar
mann, the enumerator in the first pre
cinct of the Fourth ward, related to
The Argus yesterday the handicaps
that he had encountered, and predict
ed that unless there was some action j
tanen at once nunareas or names
would be missed.
The plan to be adopted here is to
have slips printed giving all the ques
tions asked by the enumerator. These
are to be left at every place where the
occupant is not found in by the enum
erator. With the slips will be an en
velope addressed to the assistant su
pervisor. This stationery is to be fur
nished by the Rock Island Business
Men's association and delivered to Mr.
Wallace on his arrival in the city.

It is believed the ball has been start
ed rolling in Rock Island in the right
direction, and it is hoped the plan pro
posed will guarantee accuracy and com
pleteness of the canvass. However,
this does not relieve the duty of the
individual citizen. He, or she, should

Miss Jennie Nelson Victim of
Explosion in Augustana
TWO OTHERS ARE INJURED
Glass Flask Containing Mixture the
Students Are Preparing
Miss Jennie kelson of South Rock
Island, a senior at Augustana college,
was severely burned in an explosion
of chemicals in the chemical labora
tory at the college yesterday after
noon. Miss Ida Swanson of Escan
aba, Mich., and Arvid Nelson, a broth
er of Miss Nelson, were also burned
slightly, the latter while trying to ex
tinguish the flames which enveloped
the two girls.
The young ladies were engaged in
j the preparation of potassium cyanate
crystals when the accident-occurred.
i They had fused a mixture of potas
sium ferrocyanide and potassium bi
chromate and were dissolving the mass
in boiling alcohol. The exact manner
in which the explosion occurred is not
known, but it appears that the glass
flask c6ntaining the mixture burst, ig
niting the boiling alcohol from the
In Enveloped In Flaiuea.
Miss Nelson was leaning over the la
boratory table when the explosion oc
curred and the burning alcohol from
the burstin flask was thrown ovef her.
In an instant she was enveloped in
flames. Some of the burning alcohol
was also thrown on Miss Swansan.
Both girls fought desperately to extin
uish the flames, but to no avail.
Miss Nelson's brother, who was
working" in another part of the labora
tory, was attracted by the screams of
the girls, and rushed to their assistance.
Seizing an overcoat belonging to Miss
Swanson, ne wrapped nis sister in it
and smothered the flames, then aided
Miss Swanson. The laboratory desk
and the floor were also ablaze, but the
flames were quickly extinguished.
Sweater Jacket Saved Her.
Fortunately for Miss Nelson, she
was wearing a woolen sweater jackel,
which protected her greatly from the
flames. The jacket was almost en
tirely consumed, however, and her
dress badly burned. The skin on her
neck and hands was entirely burned
away and her ey.ebrows and hair badly
Miss Swanson's clothing was also
badly burned and her hands blistered.
Arvid Nelson's hands were burned
while he was assisting the girls in ex
tinguishing the flames. Professor J.
P. Magnuson rendered first aid to the
victims, after which Miss Nelson was ;
attended to by Dr. Sala. He stated i
that her injuries were not of a serious
nature, although the burns may leave

comment as his party started for the
train. "They stick the price up just
as high as they dare, just as high as
they think they can get without bring
ing a roar from the consumer."
Denim the Coarse.
John Newman, president of the
board, declared that if Chicago mem
bers placed any such interpretation on
Mr. Davis' remarks they were wrong.
"We don't put the price as high as
we think we dare," said Mr. Newman.
"We put the price where we think, as
producers, it ought to be. and the pro
ducers are the men who ought to
know. Say, do you know that with
butter at 32 cents we make just half
a cent to a cent a pound?

against their own Interests and they
will find it out and quit this war at

IN DAVENPORT CASE
Iiorenzon, Proprietor, Fined for
Keeping His Shop Open on
The Meatcutters' union of Daven
port won its case against Hans Lor-
enzon, the butcher who was arrest
ed for selling meat upon the Sab
bath. Lorenzon was fined $1 and
costs and ordered to keep his shop
closed Sunday. The case resulted
after a petition had been presented
to the butchers by the union. Lor
enzon was one of those who refused
to accede to the demands and his
arrest followed. The case came up
in Magistrate Roddewig's court and
was continued till yesterday after
noon. It was heard before a jury.
The jury was out just 10 minutes
and then returned a verdict of
"guilty." The butchers threatened
at the time of the arrest of Lorenzon
that if he were found guilty that
they would close all stores and the
atres on Sunday. They have not
made a definite move so far.

CLEAR SKIES ON THE WAY
Estimated That from One-Half to
Three-Fourths of Tree Fruit '
Is Already Gone.
When old Boreas comes back for
more in the springtime and 6lips into
a clinch, as he did the other day, watch
out for him in the breakaway. That
is when he lands his meanest blow.
The breakaway otherwise known as
"clearing skies and frost" was ex
pected last night, but the old fellow's
grip proved better than the weather
man thought, and he continues to hang
on. So it is again predicted that he
will let go tonight.
There was no frost nor freeze last
night, the lowest temperature being
39 degrees.. Consequently no damage
was done. Today it was possible to
make a more accurate estimate of the
havoc done Saturday night and Sunday
night, but results will be still more ap
parent when the sun shines again.
At Iermt Half (ionr.
It is perfectly clear that tree fruit
has been hit hard. Some localities
have fared worse than others, but the
general estimate is that from one-half
to three-fourths of the crop is gone.
Grapes will be nil, the young leaves
and buds, which were just starting, be
ing totally killed. Shrubs have fared
according to the exposure and otheT
conditions, though raspberries and
blackberries are not far enough ad
vanced to suffer much, if any.
