Rock Island, May 23. Editor The
Argus: It seems that many of our
citizens have gotten the impression
that the merchants of the city are the
greatest offenders In the matter of
strewing paper and rubbish where it
may be carried over the city by the
winds. No doubt some of our mer
chants are censurable, but I think an
inspection of the streets and alleys in
the residence district will 6how that
there is greater carelessness in those
parts of town than In the business sec
tions. One alley inspected within the
last few days, and it is not a very bad
alley either, revealed that one house
owner had evidently dumped a basket
full of loose paper in the center of the
alley and two other householders had
strewn garbage on the surface of thelj
