THE BOCK- ISLAND ARGUS. . FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 26, 1913.
Object of a Petition Being Cir
culated to Present to City
Anniversary Sale Celebrating Our 2d Successful Business Year
JASPER, HIGHLY EDUCATED DOG, SIGNS
A CONTRACT TO GO INTO VAUDEVILLE
Starting tomorrow, Saturday, we inaugurate our 2d Anniversary Sale in commemoration of the birth of
the firm of LunoM & Co.. just two short, years ago.- Qn September 23d, 1911, this small but determined store
of Lundt& Co. was ushered into existance; a nev era in Moline merchandising immediately began; a year
later the success of the firm was so pronounced that a re -organization with greatly increased capital and in
creased space was necessary to meet the demand of the ever increasing business. Today, Lundt & Co.'s
Department Store, with its dozens of exclusive stores under one roof, occupies a dominant position as one of
the greatest distributers of merchandise in Western .Illinois.
Within atweek petiions rrobably
will be presented to the city commix
icn urging the passage- of an ordi
ntnce divcrcing saloons here from
brewery control. Petitioners advance
lh airumerrt that freedom from in
fluence of the breweries would improve
renditions so that the best Interests
cf the saloons, as we'; as of the gen
ial piLi.lir. would be conserved. The
?ext of .the petitions now being circu
lated is as follows:
'"We, the undersigned citizens of j
Moline. balieving that breweries now
encaged in operating and controlling j
sa Icons are lowering the standard of i
saloons in the city of Moline, and be
lieving that the best interests of this
community would be subserved by
divorcing the breweries from any con
trol of the saloons, respectfully peti
tlcn your honorable body to pass an
ordinance prohibiting the issuance of
any saloon license hereafter to any
person or persons, firm or corporation,
to engage in the sa'oon business in the
ci'y of Moline. Illinois, who is or are
directly or Indirectly, either as agent,
af orney or otherwise, or who may be
In any manner or form connected, di
rectly or Indirectly, with any brewing
company or association, corporation
or firm, manufacturing or gelling beer
or similar products."
