PROGRESS IS REPORTED
Committee Plans to Make Ensuing
Year Banner One In History
That the Greater Moline committee
has accomplished a great deal of work
and at a very small outlay of money
whs made apparent to th- many who
attended the get-togetlur meeting held
last evening at the Moline Commercial
It. B. Lourle gave the chairman's
report, reviewing In detail some of the
things that the committee has achiev
ed for the welfare of Moline, and out
lining some of the things that require
ihn committee's attention during the
coming year. In closing he urged that
the committeo be not placed on the
defensive in the matter of necessary
financial support to carry work during
the coming year. There can be no
curtailment of funds if the committee
is to do Its best work. The Daven
port club, Mr. Lourle pointed out, has
an annual fund several times as large
as the amount spent by the local com
mittee during the year just closed.
Formal acceptance of the report and
indorsement of the work of the com
mittee was given at the meeting.
Report of the treasurer, O. E. Man-
sur, sowed a balance of a few hun
dred dollars in the treasury. A brief
report was given by Secretary Otto
In turning the meeting over to those
present Chairman Lourle announced
that he would be glad to receive sug
gestions from any of those who cared
to give them. The folowing respond
ed: Father J. S. Kelley It has been a
puznle to me why Moline has been left
so long by the Tri-CIty Railway com
pany without adequate street car fa
cilities. It seems to me that the com
pany has been partial to Davenport
and Rock Island. The Twenty-seventh
street extension of the Fourth avenue
line ought to be extended farther.
Rev. R. S. Haney Fifteenth street
must be improved is my refrain. I am
getting tired of visiting Fred Young's
auto repair shop after every visit I
make over that thoroughfare.
Arthur Kincaid, representative of
the local steelworkers organization
The Republic Iron & Steel works,
which I represent. Is not pleased with
the failure of some of the local manu
facturers to use the product of our
mills. I would urge that the Greater
Moline committee take the matter up
with the purchasing agents of the fac
tories and see what can be done to
ward getting an increased patronage
of a home industry. It is of special
importance at this time because of
the work that would be provided here
for men who are idle.
For Bridges and Jail.
Dr. Fred Graflund I want to call at
tentlon to the necessity of supporting
both the county jail and the South
Rock Island bridge when these ques
tions are to be voted on at the coming
election. If Moliners will do that they
wll not only be carrying out the pledge
made to the supervisors in order to
get favorable action from them, but
they will insure a majority vote for
the Colona bridge, the long felt need
of the east end of this county,
li. J. Oripp As a member of the
Greater Moline committee I want ev
eryone who has anything to complain
of in reference to the committee's
work, to do so. for only by such action
will they be fulfilling their duties as
citizens of this community.
J. F. Tanner of Davenport I believe
where Moline is lame is in the lack of
cooperation of the citizens with the
work of the Greater Mollne committee.
Clark G. Anderson Concerning the
matter referred to by Father Kelley I
will say that you will not get a car
line unless you show that there is a
sufficient number of people who actual

I believe this body ought to attend to.

mission without a vote of th
