Th Proposed Third Avenue School
A Xcat Little Structure t Mder
eta-B and Advantaea...IIow It
The school building for which the
board of education has accepted the plana
Architect Ross, and which ia to be
erected on the titeof the ancient ttruc-
ture at the cornsr of Third avenue and
Thirteenth street, will not be a very large
anair, but will be built with ample ac
commodations for all demands for years
come, and wi 1 furthermore be modern
design, arrangement and convenience,
is to be of either brick or stone probs
ably the latter and will have four
rooms, two on the first floor, and two on
the second, with an office or library in
the turret on tie second storv. There
rrtoPOSED sew school
will also be a basement for the furnace
and ventilating system, drv closets and
plsyroom8 for the younger children.
The board has decided that it shall be
modern in all re peels, and built wiih sn
eye to the heal h and comfort of the pu
pils. It will cr st $7,000.
The present building, which is as old
as the vtry hills almost, has become not
only in a measure unsafe, but is inade
quate to the meds of the district, having
but two rocme, wheress double that num
ber is actually necessary. The proposed
b uildine will therefore relieve eonie of the
overtaxed buildings in adjoining districts
and will be larj'c enough for all purposes
for msny years to come. There has been
no better sign of the times since Rock Isl
and entered ujon its era of progress and
prosperity than the improvements that
have lxen nude in our public school
buildiDgs in recent years. The new High
school and the new No. 5 arc a credit to
the communitv, and the more advance
ment the board of education makes in the
reconstruction of school buildings, the
more it does not only for the intellectual
welfare, but for the appearance cf the city.
Good school buildings are the most at
tractive characteristics of a growing
The erectiot of the new No. 2 ill be

The Rock Island Industrial Home asso
ciation opened its third annual exposition
at Armory hai. last evening. A very at
tractive and ucccssful departure was
made this year in the way of an illumin
ated procession, tbe various labor organ -
zations assembling on Market square at
3 o'clock under the marshals!) ip of Mr. J.
W. Cavanaugh, whose aides were Messrs.
Gustave Kloiz, Al. Genung, Michael
Sexton, 8 8. Hull, Patrick Rooney.Ham
lin Dull. M. Ilalloy, R. T. Sheridan and
T. A. Pender. The organizations with
LANTERNS A5D APPROPRIATE BANNERS
formed on the- square and then proceeded
over the following avenues and streets:
East on Th rd avenue to Twentieth
street, north on Twentieth street to Sec
ond avenue, west to Twelfth street, south
to Third avenue and east to Armory
hall, Bleuer'j band leading the proces
sion. Colon d lights were sbown along
Second avenue and many cheered the col
umn as it parsed. The organizations in
line were the :
Iron mouliers' union, glass workers.
carpenters, nights of Labor, 1957, cigar
makers, slonj cutters, switchmen, brick
layers' union stonemasons, tailors, and
tbe typograr. hical union.
After the societies h.id assembled at
the hall tbe mayor and city council were
escorted in by the executive committee
and given scats on the platform at the
west end of the room. Bleuer's band
played a selection, after which J. W.
Cavanaugh, as chairman of the commt
tee on arrangements, made a short ad
dress of welcome to" the third annual ex
hibition of the Rock Island Industrial
Home association, speaking of the ob
jects and aii as of the association to pro
vide a boa e for the labor societies of
Rock Island, and promising not only an
improvement each night in the various
exhibits, but other features in the way of
music, etc,,- awch as would add to the
interest and pleasure. Mr. Cavanaugh
who spoke :is follows:
Mr President. Ladle and Gentlemen, and Mem
ber of the 1 ados! rial Home Association :
I Bm nappy to meet you here tonight
on an occat ion like this, and I will take
this opportunity of hereby expressing
my sympathies, and to let you know that
I take a spisclal pride in tbe grand efforts
that are bei ag made by my fellow workmen
in their lauiable undertaking; also In the
progress tht has been made to advance
themselvei and the cause they represent
morally, i socially ana inteiiecmauj
every when, not only upon this continent
but in the autocratic strongholds of Eu
rope, worlangmen we coming to the
front, and why not? Have they not
been kept in the background long
enough? The destines of Europe are
gradually passing into the hands of the
working classes, an J when that time ar
rives when they will have control of
public affairs upon that continent, then
the tremendous standing armies, whose
burden has galled the neck , of
the people and been a menace
to the peace of Europe for
centuries will have to go, and all titles
and privileged classes with them. Then
man will have to stand upon his own
merits. It will no longer be fashionable
for any English aristocrat to make his
proud boast that be was descended from
some robber baron, who came over with
William, the conqueror, or perhaps
was the lineal descendant of some scion of
royalty who fell defending the tottering
throne of the house of Stuart on the fields
of Nssby. But a few days ago the world
was startled by the news that the great
iron chancellor of the mighty German
empire was compelled to step down and
out. Why? Because his young master,
the emperor, wss wise enough to read the
signs of the times and to know that con
cessions must be made to the working
classes to save his empire from destruc
tion. Any student of history knows
nr ,- l.ll'H 111
building no. 2.
when such concessions are once com
menced they will never stop until every
imperial privilege is wiped out and the
emperor and empire with it.
I ish to say one word in commenda
tion of these organizttions and the com
mittees who have this matter in charge.
I do not believe anyone whois not directly
connected with them understands tbe
magnitudo of the task they have under
taken in raising the necessary funds res
quired for the purchase of a suitable site
and for the erection of a building that
not only will be an ornament to the city,
but will be a credit to the. united efforts
of organized iabor in this city, which
they can truly call a home. Tbe gentle
men composing this joint committee are
en tilled to a great dtal of credit for their
perseverance and the faithful manner in
which they have performed their ardu
ous duties. They are certainly entitled
to our encouragement and support, and
that cot only by our words and actions,
but with a free and open purse.

The Urlrk Fartory.
Mrs-rs. Meade and Butterworlh of
the Rockford Construction company, are
still prospecting in the vicinity of Sears,
and have discovered some splendid clay,
samples of which may be seen at Mitch
ell & Ly tide's bank. Rumors have been
prevalent today to the, i fleet that the
RockforJ representatives had decided not
to locate their factory here at all, but
these are it is to be hoped, unfounded.
Of course the Rockford company cannot
fail to loca'e its factory here and act in
good faith with the city, and tbe men
who compose the new company, if the
Anocs judges them correctly, are not of
the class who sy one thing and do an
other. The probabilities are very strong
that the factory will be located at Sears
as stated yesterday, but Messrs. Meade
and Butterworth are non-committal until
they have made further investigations.
A Fine Trade.
The inventive mind is constantly de
vising new ideas in every line of busi
ness. It particularly is the case in house
hold furnishing. In furniture and car
pets Eann & Flemming have a fine dis
play .of the latest designs, their establish
ment being crowded with fine parlor
suites, bedroom suites and all kinds of
household furniture. In carpets they
have a particularly fine line, which they
are selling at very reasonable prices. Last
year their business had increased to such
an eitent that they were compelled to add
another room. They leased the store
room adjoining on tbe east which is de
voted exclusively to the display of ear
pets and curtains. '
