It baa beea argued, and mathematicians
have att-mpted to figure, that the location
of the w irld'a fair at Chicago would re-
ault in a disadvantage to other cities in
Illinois i nd the states within a radius of
two hun Ired to three hundred miles of
the city hy the lake. One gentleman
made lata calculation last night, when it
was dett rrained that Chicago had won the
coveted prize which the great cities of the
continent have been striving for so ear-
nestly aid so long, that the fair at Chic
go would take $200,000 out of Rock Isl
and. Th s was estimated as the aggregate
expense: of the trip of those who would
attend tl e fair from Rock Island. It ia
to be ex lected of course that the fair at
Chicago would attact more than if it were
held in New York, notwithstanding that
Rock Isl iud was pretty well represented
at the Philadelphia Centennial K i posi

A Nad Case.
Capt. r; l Mts. Geo. Lamont have a
sad and pitiable case in their family in
the fate f their little son, Georgie, whose
death frc m starvation is a matter of but
a short t me. The boy is now sixteen
years old When at the age of tbiee be
got bold f a bottle of lye thinking that
it was something good to drink, and
'allowed considerable of its contents.
Prom tbi results of this the boy has suf
fered r.iore or less intensely from
stricture of the throat, and while it re
1 ixcd a t -ifile at times when instruments
were inserted, it soon closed again. The
pain real y baa not been so great aa af

constitutrd the boy's sole source of
nourishment. At time he could swallow
a little anup and he managed to satisfy
his appetite by what lie ceuld dissolve in
his tin ut i and a swallow of ginger snaps.
He seen ed, however, to be strong and
healthy and kept about aa if nothing was
the matter. He often came to town
with bis father and became known all
over Soi th Rocd Island, where attach
ment wu formed for the boy who always
appeared light-hearted and patient under
bis affliction. It was only possible for
him to gn to school but half a day, aa it
requiied so long for him to get into bis
stomach what he could get through the
passage f his throat. Ice water seemed
to afford him great relief and be often
managed hy repeatedly taking considera
ble into hM mouth and ejecting what he
could no: swallow, to reduce the stricture
Bomewhst. After be attained the age of
ten yea a i, : difficulty seemed to
disappear somewhat, and for a few
years he was able to eat mashed potatoes
and to allow soups, the juice of meat
and ever to eat amall particles of mince
meat itut about a year ago the stoppage
of the throat returned and since thea the
affliction baa increased until it was im
possible to swallow any nourishment
whatsoe -er. Since a week ago Friday the
boy has lad no food whatever except

Capt .atnont has given his son the

from tbe earliest stage of the trouble,

Mr J. S. Wylie. who went to Wash
ington as representative of the Daven
port Business Men's association shortly
sfter Mayor McConochie, of this city. and
President Hass, of the Rock Island Citi
zens' Improvement association, reached
home Sunday and the Democrat says:
As for the military prison at Rock Isl
and araenal, it is Mr Wylie's opinion and
also the view of all friends of the arsenal
that the government penitentiary isn't
wanted here. It would be a curse rather
than a benefit, and tbe Ioa and Illinois
delegations in congress will take this view
of it. fort Leavenworth, or some more
remote piace, where the government has
no large manufacturing interests, would
be much better.
The gun plant at the arsenal for the
making of heavy ordnance is altogether
another matter. If we do not realize this
it will not be on account of idleness.
Last Friday Mr. Wylie in company with
Senators Allison and Cullom, and Con
gressman Gest. of Rock Island, had an
important interview with Secretary of
War Proctor. Tbe secretary visited the
arsenal last summer and formed a cor
rect idea of its extent and advantages for
manufacturing purposes. Senators Alli
son and Cullom made a more effectual
argument during their private call than
they could have made on the floor of the
senate. Both are in earnest and were
very courteous to Davenport's representa
tive. It is feared that Gen . Benet, tbe
chief of ordnance, will not give the en
terprise the help he might give it, as
stated in a Washington dispatch. There
is a good chance, however, ot getting the

new regulation it will take the trains over

and consequently tbe time of the arrival
and departure of the trains along the
stations will be changed .
There is a valuable lesson for Rock Is
land in how Chicago succeeded in cap
turing the location of tbe world's fair.
It was simply a neyer-sleep determina
tion to get there that brought tbe prize
to the metropolis of the west, and to our
own atate. It ia that sam: unconquer
able spirit that has overridden the ob
structionist, driven out the croaker, and
made Chicago what it is today. That
energetic idea baa begun to develop in
Rock Island, but it is encountering the
opposition that it first met in Chicago aa
it docs everywhere. Tbe question is.
will the progressive aims prove unvield-
ing in this city? If they do Rock Island
will get to tbe front all right, too.

The Union says:
"The ARacs seems wouderfully anx
ious to fix the "responsibility" for repeal
ing the eight hour contract labor ordi
nance on City Attorney Haas."
What the Union says is untrue. Tbe
Arous did not, nor neither does it desire
to place any undue responsibility upon
Mr. Haaa. It simply published that por
tion of the statute upon which Mr. Haas
based his opinion and a report of what
was said at tbe council meeting upon tbe
question of the ordinance's legality. It
seems to the Arous as though Mr. Haas
should feel complimented upon the man
ner in which the council respected his
opinion. As city attorney, he is expected
to advise the conncil as to what it may
and may not do without conflicting with
statutory provisions, and when the coun
cil follows his advice wholly on a legal
point, he naturally becomes responsible
for the correctness of his opinion.
