The Illinois Oil company Is now en
gaged in the manufacture of barrels
for the shipping of various oils at its
plant on First avenue and Fifteentn
In the new factory, however, cans
for shipping the oil will be made in
one. five, 10 and 15 gallon sizes. The
company now employs 40 men, but
with the new factory completed 100
men will be given work.
Will Be Huge Structure.
The new structure will be a large
one. It will be 160x300 feet feet, con
tracted of steel and concrete with as
phalt flooring. The cost of the erec
tion of the building as estimated will
be about 60,000. New and most mod-,
ern macnigery, including nyarauuc
presses, will be installed. These will
cost in the neighborhood of f50,0ou.
Barrels of the type now made by the
company will be manufactured also.
Besides the Water street site the
company has under consideration oth

to favor the one at the lower end of
town. According to Mr. Welch if this

"Then, again, we have not secured

control of the property we desire ana
if we can secure Water street, we will
then have "to get busy in getting tho
property owned by the estate.
"We may not be able to do so, but
we thought that It would be oetter to
get the rights to the street first and
then the other property.
"We have several other sites in
view here, but none seem available
as the price asked Is too High'. We
plan to spend not over llO.iwo for the
land. We would pay that much to
stay in Rock Island. In case we do
not secure a location here we will lo
cate in Davenport where a free site
has been offered us."
