THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, TIIURSDxY, JUUY 14, 1910.
Another Smallpox Case Reported.
City Health Physician W. A. Stoecks
yesterday reported that another case
of smallpox had been found in the res
idence of Mrs. Minnie Bailey, where
Miss Rose Bailey, teacher at the Tay
lor school, is the victim. She was re
moved to St. Roberts' hospital In the
evening. While her case is not a ser
ious one, it was thought best to take
, this precaution to prevent further
spread of the disease.

Holdup Man Bound Over. Jack Har

hails from California and who was the

shop, charging him with violation of
the state laws in keeping bis shop

will issue no more warrants in these

tried with failure to convict. County
Attorney Vollmer has also declined to
prosecute any more of them.

You are getting some every
week, and perhaps spending it
all. A little of it put away
now where it will work and

an account with this good

This is the sixth of a series of advertisements that we
have run in The Argus as a means of getting our story
squarely before the public preliminary to a petition that
we will present to the city councils asking permission to
dispose of the physical assets of our telephone plants.
We have been treated fairly by the people and the
city councils in carrying on our business here. We have
hoped from the beginning that eventually our enterprise
in attempting to furnish competitive telephone service
would win out. We have backed our judgment and
faith by a large expenditure of money. Our actual invest
ment today represents $600,000.
It is costing a loss of $1,000 per month in keeping
our exchanges in operation pending the release that we
are asking at the hands of the city councils. We have
been extended every favor that was asked under our
franchise ordinance; therefore we have no grievance.
The financial failure of the Union Electric Telephone
company is attributable to one seemingly unalterable fact
almost universal opposi ion to paying for duplicate tele
one service. We have had this truth demonstrated to
us by an experience of eight years here. We have fought
the battle long enough to have convinced ourselves of
this truth beyond any doubt.
Thi3 being the situation, we are endeavoring to put
our condition frankly before the people in order that
they may know that we are dealing fairly to the end of
ovlt relations here.
The telephone is a quasi-public institution; therefore
we feel the public should be made acquainted with the
facts in our affairs. We have yet to learn of any seriouB
objection to our proposal to withdraw from the field, in
view of our hopeless financial condition. We can ex
pect to realize from a sale only a small part of the
money we have sunk here in our effort to furnish the
people what, at the outset, we believed they wanted and
could and would maintain.
