The Springfield Regi$ter contains the
following excellent explanation of the
work of an improvement association
such as Rock Island has, and may be ap
plied with equal propriety to Rock Is
Isnd. Read, mark, learn and inwardly
The statement cannot be repeated too
frequently or too much emphasized that
the citizens of Springfield should make
an earnest and determined effort to de
velop our manufacturing interests. The
citizens' association is daily receiving
good propositions from msnufscturers
desiring to locate at Springfield, but until
our capitalists are willing to offer the
same inducements as other cities having
less desirable facilities, manufacturers
will locate elsewhere. The Citizens'
Improvement association is simply
a bureau of information. The or
ganhMtinn is supported and offi
cered by our best and most public
spirited citizens, and combioes influence
and responsibility, and the prime ob ect
in Its formstlon was for the purpose of
gathering and disseminating reliable in
formation in connection with the manu
facturing interests and calling attention
to our advantages as an industrial cen
ter. It is no puff bureau or "boom agency,"
established for the purpose of enticing
capitalists to make investments on illu
minated statements or generalities, but a
medium of reliable information a source
from which prospective investors can ob
tain the facts and needed assistance in
their t fforts to establish new industries.
It ia intended as a help to all who wish
to locate in this city and develope any
legitimate business, and its information
is free to all who apply.
The association cheerfully furnishes in
formation concerning eligible sites, prob
able cost of ground and buildings, freight
rates on raacufactnred articles, labor and
its cost, the source from which supplies
will be drawn, and trade obtained after
the plant has been furnished and put in
operation In brief, the association was
established to assist manufacturers and
capitalists desiring to maite investment
here and render all possible aid to old
and new enterprises that will likely con
duce to the success of the commercial in
terests of the city. The association
should receive the hearty co-operation of
the capitalists and business men In gen
eral of the city, as without their aid it
will be almost useless to secure any new
lei. l in ion After All.
The Rock Island and Moline delegates
to the Tri-City Odd Fellows Anniver-ary
association are considerably indignant i t
the present time at the result of tl.eir
labors for the purpose of arranging for a
celebration on April 2fl. The members
from Davenport where the exercises
should be held this year In accordance
with the regular order of rotation. Rock
Island having the first celebration and
Moline that of last year, at first mani
fested but little interest and were not
present at the first meeting held this year.
Afterwards they came forward and de
clared their de-ore to celebrate the anni
versary as has been done by the Odd
Fellows of the three cities for several
years past. The arrangements were sc
cordingly carried forward and the invi
tations were already to send out when at
the last meeting, on Saturday evening,
the Oaveuport genlleniau backed out en
tirely, saying that they did net want a
celebration. This will undoubtedly end
the matter for this year, says the Moline
Rriufiliriih, as it is considered to be now
too late for the Moline and Rock Island
Odd Fellows to arrange one on their own
account with anv expectation of having
any great number of visitors from abroad.
Tiie anniversary will, however, probe
bly be celebrated in a quiet way by the
members of the order in Moline. The
Tri-Clty association is deemed to be vir
tually something of the past, though the
Davenport members would not withdrew
from the association.

There is another United States in

policy for the building npcf domestic

pursued by us.
This is the United States 01 Colombia,
in South America, of whici the Isth
mus of Panama forms a pari This is a
country in which vast forests of the
choicest timber abound, and this timber
varies from the tropical pilni to the
liardy Alpine types. There a e also vast
mineral resources, such an c ipner, lead

(Although the United States of Colom
bia raises nearly all of i s revenue
through tariff duties, still if law mak

How is it that these men art so dull of
pe rception as not to see that tl e true and
only way to develop Colombian -lup
building is to shut out these Pittsburg
river steam ciVr The Cauca and the
Magdalena rivers of Colombia are they
not better than all the rivers of Pennsyl
vania? At the same time another dispatch
reaches us from Chili, which states that
tho government of that country will
shortly take steps to reduce materially
the duties on raw materials i i otder to
encourage Chilian manufact iring en
terprises. Those persons seem to mal e a great
mistake who assert that the prestige of
the United States will make it from tliiw
time forth the model of all on southern
Ou the other hand, it seems jlear that
the South American delegate to the
Pan-American congTess did noi come up
here to learn political wisdom from us.
How little the Chilians are d.sposed to
follow our example as the leading nation
is further illustrated by an occurrence
which happened some years ago. A
commission was sent from thit country
to South America to effect reciprocity
treaties with the various natiocs of that
continent. When the commiss on came
to Chili they had a hearing with the
president of the republic.
But what did they accompli ?
The Chilian president politely told the
commissioners some things which must
have struck them as foundec on very
queer and even heretical prii ciples of
This is w hat he said:
"It is out of no want of respe- t for the
United States, but it is my sett ed belief
that ail treaties are needless. 1 here can
be no control by any convention of the
laws of trade. Men will buv and sell
where it is most to their advantage, and
this cannot be aided or materially in
tluenced by national compacts. Chili
opens ail her coasts to the vessels of any
nation, the United States inciuied. and
in turn the Chilian flai; ought to have ac
cess to the ports of the I id tod states on
the same terms
