BOCK ISLAND ARGUS, SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 190

Tbe plan talked of hy the Messrs
Bear since tbe destruction of their flour
log mill near Milan, to utilize their water
power there in electric transmission to
Rock Island. Davenport or Mol no, has
been definitely decided upon, though tbe
Messrs. Hears are still non-committal on
the subject. Their purpose, it is be
lieved, is to erect an eiectric tizht and
power plant, develop a thousand horse
power on the site of their mill, and the
water power is to he utilized in connec
tion with two iiidepcndunt steam power
plants, of 250 horse power each. The
plant is to be complete in every particu
lar and there will be a large part of that
power which nnv be readily transmitted
to Rock Island by electricity. The Ar
Ds has on numerous occasions spoken of
the necessity of taking action with refer
ence to securing this power. Tbe CitU
r.n" Improvement association has voiced
the ime sentiment, as have many
of our citizens If that power is to be
transmitted it rk Island is to get. the
benefit of it nnd should make an effort to
secure it. if it is not too late. Dvnn
port has been ipietly laying wires to at
t tin the advantage for some time, and
If that city carries It over the head of
this city while it slumbers, it will he a
disgrace that it will he difficult to over
come or recover from .
This is a matter of the utmost impor
taneo for our Cit zens' Imp-ovement as
sociation, whose mission It is to develop
enterprises and improvements that look
to the best advantages of the city. It is
essential to our manufacturing indus
tries, and more p'lrticuUrly the smaller
ones that are springing up over the clty;
that Rock Island have the benefit of this
power.no matter what the cost of accom
plisbing it. The Improvement association
has a responsibility in this instance. It
has - committee designated for this very
purpose, and President Hass will, no
doubt. Wako the members tip. and see
that they do their duty in the premises.

The Key P. A. l oot on Labor
The Rev. P. A. Cool, pastor of Ike
First M. church at Peoriit. and for
merly presiding elder of this district, ad
dressed the open meeting of tbe Carpen
ters' Union, called to discuss the eight
hour movement, at the Trades Assembly
ball there Thursday night. The hall was
filled and the speaker was frequently in
terrupted by applause. He made a
strong plea for a more even distribution
of wealth, and particularly the advan
tages that wealth afforded. He thought
the laboring man should have a little
time It become acquainted with his fam
ily, a few moments in which to post
himself on current tepics and a little time

children are asleep when they leave In the

before tbe father returns at night, conse
quently tbe workingman rarely sees his
children The argument was brief but
eloquent, and far reaching in lta scope.
The speaker also dropped in enough wit
to call forth frequent hursts of laughter.
The Tran$cript says "It was by far the
best of any speech yet made at these
open meetings "
The following from tbe Princeton ,'
publitan, edited by John W. Bailey, cen
sus supervisor for this district, may be
taken as ex-cathedra information for can

The next thing in order will be tbe ar

then will follow tbe selection of enumer

to cultivate patience for awhile, until the
supervisor can find time to answer their
favors Meantime they may send their

FOR CHEAPER FRUIT.
California' Hem ami for Prohibitory Du
ties- Protests In New York and Hoaton.
The Foreign Fruit Exchange of New
York has memorialized the ways and
mean committee of congress in opposi
tion to the increase of duties on raisins,
prunes and oranges which has been asked
for. The exchange asks that oranges.
lemons, grapes, currants, dates, figs,
prunes and plums lie placed on the free
list, and that the duty on raisins Im re
duced from two cents a pound to one
cent. If thif cannot lie granted, then the
exchange nsks that sulwtnnt i il reduc
tions lie made.
The Boston exchange lias indorsed the
New York schedule. At the meeting of
the Boston men one importer opposed
the removal of tho duties on green fruits
on the ground that if those duties were
removed small importers with little or
no capital would eater the business and
would cause sharper competition and
consequently diminished profits for those
already in the busluess. From all which
the consumer can see how the present
tariff oerutes to keep tho importing
business in tlie hands of a small number
of wialiliv dealers, thus shutting off
competition and keeping prices up.
There is little reason at thistune for
Increasing tho duties on fruit that even
The California Fruit Grower, the organ
of the fruit growing interests of the Pa
cific slope, lius entered its protest against
the increase. It justly calls attention to
the fact that only two states in the Uniwn
are Interested fn having the duties put
up; and it warns the California grower
that there is danger in his demand, bj
reason of the oppfststtfiai which will be
aroused in the east.
N. vert he bus t he i 'alifomia Fruit union
has a memorial before the McKinloy com
mittee asking that the .resent duty of
one cent I pound 00 prunes be increased
to three cents. When it is con-"dered
that California prunes are of such excel
lent quality that they have created a

the richer classes, and when it is further
considered that the bulk of the foreign

fruitless thus far, and as tbe amount

barely sufficient to last until July 1, the

gloomy. The other districts are in worse

A crowded balcony and gallery and not
half a hundrtd empty chairs on tbe first
floor marked the beginning ot the three
act comedy. "A Soap Bubble." in which
Baker and Farron appeared here last
season. There are some changes in the
cast tbis year that make the performance
better than before El. J. Connelly as
the "Barher," la the second act. scored
a great hit. He is a funny comedian,
quite original and will tome day make
himself known. Mr. Corey, as usual, is
amusing and bis songs capture the audis
ence. With Mr. Connelly and the rest of
tbe company he makes tbe barber shop
seene the great one of tbe play. Miss
Dolly Foster is clever in acting and sing
ing, and tbe other ladies of the company
fill th ir parts to satisfaction. The
modest trio was a taking feature, and in
fact, tbe entire performance was re
ceived with shouts of laughter and ap
