Another six months have passed
since we were before yon with our
emi-annual clearing sale of remnants.
It is onr custom at the close of each
season to gather together all of the ac
cumulation of cut pieces, all short
lengths and odds and ends, which in
tharush of the busier part of the year
is thrown to one side, and after care
fully measuring and ticketing each
remnant to put so low a price on each
piece as to cause a grand rush each
time, to onr remnant bargain sales.
These sales have become so popular
and the opportunities to buy many
choice pieces of merchandise at half
and quarter value, makes it necessary
that we shall thoroughly advertise the
event so that each of our customers
may have equal chance at the rare bar
gains which cannot at any time be du
plicated. We commence the tale on Monday a. m. July
14 tb, at 8 o'clock promptly, and continue the sale
each day, of what remain over daring the entire

IAN EXCITING EXPERIENCE
The Libbi Conger Collides With
the Draw at the BridRe.
With Hlr Kifamlna An Hoard. The
Popular mrtnrr Hm ft Narrow
F.neape Kxteot of the isamaee-.
The popular steamer, Libbie Conger
mat with a peculiar accident, and at the
same time a close call to a disaster at
0:30 this morning. In command of Capt.
Geo. Lamont, the boat went up to the
Moline landing for an excursion pari;
under the auspices of the Svea male choir
of the Swedish Lutheran church, and
wfth a big crowd on board was steaming
merrily down the river. At the cus
tomary distance above the bridge the
whistle signal was given for the draw to
open, but the dredge boat A. J. Whit
ney, which is working on the wing dam,
was in the way and the draw was pre
vented trom swinging as rapidly or as far
as It usually does, but no danger was real
ized until the Libbie was up pretty close
to the bridge, when it was seen that the
space was not sufficiently wlds to admit
of her passage, and while Tilot Sheldon
Ruby bad rung for the wheel to reverse
and was attempting to back up, the boat
had caught the current and was steadily
drifting toward the bridge. A number of
people on the bridge watched the boat's
approach with breathless horror, while a
large portion of those on board no doubt
having fresh in their minds the Like Pe
pin calamity, were terror stricken and
but for the self possession manifested by
Capt., Lamont, who assured his passen
gers that everything would be all right
in a moment and that there was nothing
to fear, a panic would most certainly
have taken place on board the boat.
The Conger, however, was driven to
ward the bridge until she came in violent
contact with the corner of the draw,
which struck the forward end of her texas
nd ripped it off with crashing force, to
gether with a spar on the left side, and
i he boat then floated through all right.
:4be presented a pitiably demoralized ap
learance as she approached the Rock Isl
and dock, looking much like a man bear
ing the imprint of one of Sullivan's right
Landers in the r.'gion of the optics.
The boat was not disabled in the least,
however, and went down the river to
Muscatine. She will be repaired tomor
row, and an investigation will no doubt
1 e made as to who was to blame for the
accident, which might have resulted in a
loss of life similar to that which attended
the sinking of the Sea Wing further up
the Mississippi Sunday afternoon.
The Davenport Baslaess Xri't Asm-
At the regular monthly meeting of the
Davenport Business Men's association
l'tst evening, the meeting was addressed
by Rev. Robert Edgar, who stated that
be had recently returned from Pennsyl
vania. While there he learned of ten
j lung men, practical glass makers, who
wish to form a company and begin busi
ness in some live western city. They can
command about f 20,000 of their own
capital. Tbey want some two acres of
ground and would employ at the start
sixty men on a monthly pay roll of $3.
6(10. Being practical men, some of them
are now earning $300 a month. Chairs
man Hoyt, of the manufacturing commit
tee, stated that be had written the young
men for further information. He was in
clined to think they want a bonus and a
bid against some other city.
A resolution endorsing the Tn-City
Trade Journal and recommending it to
the business public as worthy of support,
wits unanimously adopted.
A communication was read from Sec
retary Ilirahl, of the Davenport Fair
and Exposition, stating that tbe prospects
for success are of the brightest character.
Mr. Wylie introduced the matter of
holdlug a river carnival, similar to that
of last year, but on a much grander
set le. It is designed to have the cor
nival during the week of the fair. He
staled that it could he made a great suc
cess if given tbe necessary support.
It was earnestly advocated by others.
A member ot the Irriwadi Canoe club
stated that tbe amount of money used
last year could be made to go a deal fur
ther. He thought from f 1,0 K) to $1,500
could be used to good advantage.
Tbe season of tree trimming has ar
rived and the artists with their long han
dle! shears are busily at work. There
seems to be no rule adapted for trimming
trees. Diff. rent artists have different
notions as to tbe amount of cutting and
slat king a tre will stand. We presume
it in a mat'er of taste, though the kind of
tree, trimmed ought to have much to do
wit n fixing the extent of tbe cutting it
will stand. A soft maple grows rapidly.
the branches yield readily to high winds,
and hence require a considerable trim-
mir g, while the pretty elm should as a
general thing be let alone. We believe
a city ordinance provides that all trees
whose limbs project over the sidewalk
sha'.l be trimtr ed to a height of eight feet
aboe the walks. This is not always
dons, but it should be, especially now
that the high electric light light is de
penled on for lighting the walks.
Tae Free port races are on the slate
for t his week, commencing today. They
wero originaly booked for June, but the
freshet of last month submerged the
tract and turned the park into a nati
toritim. Now everything is lovely, and
Sectetary Conkrite advertises a large and
brill ant field of horses 89 in all. It
will be a great week for the racing fra
ternity, and numerous horsemen from
this vicinity will be present.

and tbe whole community is the sufferer.
Today a contractor has no assurance
when he undertakes a piece of work that
he will be allowed to complete it without
encountering a strike for shorter hours.
If he has figured on wages based on the
nine hour system and is soon after com
Delld to reduce them to eight, he is the
loser. In order to be safe from loss of
this sort be must figure his labor on the
possible eight hour baBis. It may be that
he will not be compelled to scale down
his working hours, but there is no cer
tainty that he will not. Tbe result
has been an increase in tne esti
mates on contracts, and in many cases.
tbe Democrat is informed the increase is
quite sufficient to deter men from doing
work tbey bad intended to uo mis seas
son. One contractor places the propor
tion of jobs that are held in abeyance at
not lexs than half the number of those
that will be done during tbe season.
This estimate may be high, but there can
be no doubt that there are pieces of work
that are standing still pieces that will

there are others who can. As it is now
tbe men are willing to work, but the
terms upon which tbey will do so are so
uncertain that tbe contractors, and the
workmen themselves even, do not know
where they staud. Tbe net result just
now is that there is Ubs for mechanics to
do than there would be if they had not

This waist is designed to meet the
requirements of ladies who cannot,
comfortably, wear a stiff and rigid cor
set, while it can be worn with as much
comfort as an ordinary dress-waist, it
will give the same elegance of contour
as the heaviest boned corset in the
market, while the stays are so arranged
that they give support to the back and
spine, and in nowise interfere with the
freedom and comfort of the wearer.
Our price for this comfortable and
healthful waist is $1.00- You will no
doubt find it fully as satisfactory as
waists for which you have paid $1-75.
