PROSPECTS- ARE BRIGHT
Freeze Is Thick and Getting Thicker
Each Day and Big Crop Is
The annual harvesting of the Ice
crop will begin the latter part of the
present week or the first of next
week, provided the weather condi
tions remain favorable. This an
nouncement was made this morning
by officers of the various ice compan
ies in the city. The ice was report
ed today as being from 8 to 9 inches
In thickness and if the cold snap
continues the requisite 10 Inches will
have een attained by Friday or Sat
urday. W ORK BEGINS AT ROCK HIVER.
Manager C. A. Schoessel of the
Union Ice company is out on Rock
riven this morning completing ar
rangements for the installation of
the big winter camp, and several
teams are already at work dragging
the snow from the surface of the ice.
Tbe Tnion company will probably
employ about 200 men, as was the
case last year. A complete camp is
maintained, including a bunkhouse,
which will accommodate' over 200
men, a cook' shack, stables, etc.
A cutter which is run by a gasoline
engine is utilized by this company
and this machine has a capacity of
at least 2,000 tons a day.
The Union company harvests its
ice and has its camp about two miles
east of Milan on Rock river.
MOLI.VR COMPANY HEADY.
Officers of the Moline Ice com
pany, which has offices in the Robin
son building in this city, stated that
their company would probably begin
active operations Monday. The Mo
line company cuts its ice at Sylvan
pool and at Watertown. About 250
men will be employed altogether at
the two places when everything is in
full blast. The ice cutter at Moline
Is propelled hy electricity and can I
turn out 2,500 tons daily, while the
machine at Watertown, which uti
lizes gasoline power, can cut 2,000
tons a day.
ICE CROP TO BE BIG OXE.
Ice men predicted today that the
crop this year would be the largest
for several seasons, for the reason
that there Is so much water all over
the country. This will be welcome
news to the long suffering and pa
tient consumer, whose existence is
not en enviable one when he is
whip-sawed between the coal barons
and the ice magnates.
OUTSIDE SHIPMENTS IMALU -
The Moline company has a ware
house capacity of 40,000 tons and
in addition to this amount plan on
shipping in the neighborhood of 200
carloads to outside points. Three
hundred and fifty cars were shipped

out of Moline last year, but inas
much as water la so general through
out the country, It is thought that
the shipments consigned to other
points will not approach the amount
set last year.

EVERYTHING GOES WRONG
Ink Is Frozen, Rudgren Is Busy, No
Heat in I loom, but All
Rock Island's city commission be
gan the new year with Its first meet
ing of 1912 yesterday afternoon
amidst environments that were, at
first, anything but conducive to the
best results. In the first place there
was quite a crimp in the personnel
of the assemblage because of the fact
that Commissioner M. T. Rudgren,
weighted down with affairs appertain
ing to the needs of the department of
the city clerk, was unable to break
away from the exceedingly heavy
grist in his office. He Is the record
keeper of the council, among other
things, land so his duties had to be
cared for by Commissioner R. R.
COM) HOOM FROZEN INK.
When they scrambled into the city
hall council chamber they felt the in
tense change in atmospherical condi
tions, for the heat had not penetrated
sufficiently to down the cold condi
tions that have existed there for a
week. The ink was frozen In the hot
ties so that it could not be used for
writing; the door had to be closed
so that none of the precious warmth
could escape. When the door went
shut, it locked aud a hapless scribe
had to pound for admission.
The council meeting ended well
after the transaction of business. If
the old adage, "a bad beginning Is a
good ending," can be taken as & cri
terion, the council got off yesterday
on the tight foot.
