'What effect will the tariff have upon
your tradeT" was asked Mr.'C. C. Mcln-
tire, of the firm of Mclntire Uro-.
"Well. I cannot tell definitely as yet.
I have received advices or circulars that
silk plushes would be advanced 20 per
cent; silk velvets at least 10 per cent, and
circulars wbicb inform me that various
kinds of goods would be advanced soon,
but without stating the txact figures.
Among these goods are corsets, velvet
ribbons, handkerchiefs, emb-oideries. lin
ens, woolens, yarns and variouB other ar
ticles, the letters advising cie I have not
at hand just now. These letters which
I got a short time ago, bef ire the tariff
went into effect, advised ma to purchase
at once, else it would be too Hte."
'Who, in your opinion, will have to
pay this new addition to the price? '
"Why, the buyer, of course. The mer
chant cannot afford to pv the advance
and not charge it up to the purchaser.
Of course, on the goods we have already
a stock we will make no advance. Our
customers will be enabled io buy them at
the old figure, but when w - get new sup
plies in the months of Dicember, Janu
ary and February, and wc ourselves are
charged the advance com Del led bv the
new tariff, why, we will be obliged to
charge the additional sum to those who
buy from us. The profits on our busi
ness are none too large nr w and we cer
tainly could not afford to lose the addi
tional charge. Tilings may straighten
themselves out, however, in a couple of
"In what way?-' was asked.
Well. I'm not prep;red to say just
now, and it does seem to ine that there is
no way of getting out of the truth that
the customer must psy the extra charges.
True, I dou'l see how s few vears can
make things any better titan tbey are, but
I have hopes that they might."
'Can you give me your opinion of the
effects of the McKinley bill upon your
business in a local way?" was asked Mr.
h. McOabe, of the firm of McCabe
"While 1 do not wish to be quoted as

McOnbe, "sti 1 the consumers must be

receiving all the time no' ices of the change
and the consequent ad v. nee in price and
I suppose we must gi.vcrn ourselves ac
cordingly. The goods row on our shelves
will remain at the old prices, and when
our newer goods come in, which will be
bought under the new tariff. I don't see
how we can svoid fur any length of time,
charging the new rates We may be in
clined to stand the loss ourselves as a
matter of judiriousnesH, and permit our
goods to go at the old figures in order to
command trade, but I ihink that gradual

to advance the price in accordance with
the demands of the tariff At first we
might not make the full advance re
quired, until, as it wi re, the people got
used to it, but it would have to come.
There aie some lines f good that home

in the main, when the merchant is
obliged to psy more for his goods by a
tariff increase, this increase must certain

Macdonald, a New York
Mr. John Claflr, over his own signa
ture, states that "woolen mills have been
unprofitable for some years." Will he be
good enough to explain how, with the
highest tariff woolen manufactures have
ever enjoyed in thi; history of the coun
try, amounting to ibotit SO per cent, an
additional increase of 10 per cent on the
cost of the manufactured goods to the
public, and an additional cost of fully
that amount in wool itself, is going to
bring about prosperity for the next few
years to all the wool :n interests con
cerned? If 80 percent didn't do It. will
he bo good enough to inform us bow 90
per cent is going U do il? It appears to
those who look on from the standpoint of
common sense that if foods cost more
than formerly the less quantity is bought,
resulting in disastir and loss to the mills
only accelerated i-i speed
Will Mr. John h.oane also explain how
the thousands of idle workmen whom he
writes about as being unable to find any
employment in the carpet manufacturing
establishments for several years past with
a present tariff of about 50 or 55 per cent,
are going to fitd instant employment
with an additiotal cost of 10 or 12 per
cent added to tb carpets? Carpet trusts
are busy arranging to lock up half of the
mills now existing. If 50 or 55 per cent
tariff didn't bring prosperity, an inquir
ing public wisht to know bow an in
creased cost of 10 percent or 15 per cent
is going to do it. and what is the proper
line of demarcation in the tariff between
prosperity and disaster.
Will Mr. F. B. Thurber explain his re
mark, that in consequence of the duty on
tin plates, canned goods will not be seri
ously affected, ' except imported goods."
on which he says a rebate is to be given?
Does be not m an to say except exported
goods, etc., anu if so does it not follow
that the American public the common
people ars thus compelled to pay more
money for our goods than that at which
foreign nations are suppled, Mr. Hiscock
to the contrary, notwithstanding?
Regarding tbe article of corsets men
tloned in tie above interview, it
should be stilted that the manufac
tured article under tbe old
per cent, under tbe new 00 per
cent; the laceti used in making it, 40 per
cent under the old, under the new, 60
per cent, and coutil, also used in making
free before, nt'W 45 per cent.
Referring to this, Dr. Lucian C. War-
ner, who is it tbe head of the firm .of
Warner Broa , who own an extensive
THE ROCK ISLAND
corset factory at Bridgeport, Conn.,
The cheaper grades of corsets will not
for the present be materially affected by
the tariff. All materials of which they
are constructed, except bornstrips and
laces, are made in this country. The
bornstrips remain free, the same as in
the old tariff. The duty on lace is in
creased from 40 to 60 per cent, but this
will not add more than 3 or 4 cents a
dozen to the cheaper grades of corsets.
It is probable, however, that the tariff
will increase the general expense of liv
ing by increasing the cost of so many ar
tides of daily necessity. This will in
crease the cost of domestic materials, and
ao will eventually increase the cost of
cbeaier grades of corsets.
The price of imported corsets will be
materially increased by the new tariff, as
the duty is increased from SS to 50 per
cent. This will add about 50 cents to the
retail price of corsets which now tell for
S3. It will also very likely lead to the
manufacture of some of the imported
brands In this country. If so, it will give
to our corset manufacturers much more
troubleseme competition than the same
goods imported from the other side.
The increased duty on lice is entirely
uncalled for, as none is made in this coun
try, and there is no indication that it will
be made even under the increased protec
tion. The public, however, suffer most
from the duties of 45 per cent, upon im
ported coutil. This is made by special
process, the yarn being bleached before it
is woven, so that the goods are ready for
the market as they come from the loom.
It is not made in this country for the
reason that it requires a mill to be es
pecially fitted up for these goods, and the
sale is not large enough to justify the ex
Dense. The coutil is a very soft and
durable cloth and is better adapted to the
manufacture of corsets than any other
material. It is very largely used abroad,
but has been almost excluded from this
market because of the high duty.
A lower rate of duty which would per
mit its free importation into this count! y
wonl I very soon creaie such a demand
for it that it might be made her.', where
as tae high duty has the contrary effect

Among the mercantile evidences of
Rock Island's advancement and prosper
ity as wdl as an indication of the confi
dence felt in the city's future as a busi
ness centre, is the new hardware store of
E. Houseman, 1823 Second avenue,
which has just opened its doors to trade.
It is situated next door east of the Hove,
tinware and furnace store of Baker &
Uousman, both being practically under
the supervision of Mr. Chaa. F. Cjoper,
who, however, will devote himself more
particularly to the new enterprise. The
store which is thoroughly (quipped and
stacked for the retail hardware IraJe, has
been entirely overhauled and remodeled
to suit the accommodation and dis
play of the stock, and the way
io which Mr. Cooper has arranged
his goods both for convenience and
exhibition will repiy a visit to the
store if nothing else. In keeping with a
complete line of ell such goods as come
under the head of retail hardware, a spec
ialty is made of building hardware, me
chanic!,' tool', pocket, table and kitchen
cutlery, while everything thnugbont
presents an appearance of neatness and
cleanliness such a "challenges admiration
at a glance, and will continue to be a
marked characteristic of the store. Toe
stock which is klready large, will be in
creased as business warrants.
Mr. Cooper, who has a lifetime of ex
perience in this particular branch of mer
cantile industry, is to be assisted in the
store by John Sisssltr as head clerk, who

Tbe celebration of tbe golden wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Christopher
Atkinson at the borne of their son, Mr.
Wm. Atkinson, near their own long-time
residence on Elm street heights last even
ing, was as happy in its nature as was tbe
event itself. It is seldom that a couple
ia spared to tread the paths of life for a
half century together, and it never occurs
that after attaining such an an
niversary both look back upon a
life in which they have Dartici-
pated as one, with more happy re
membrances than do Mr. and Kirs. Chris
topher Atkinson. The gues's of last
evening included tbe direct descendants
children and grandchildren of tbe hon
ored couple numbering thirty-six,
while other relatives and invited
friends brought the number present up
to fifty. The children present were: Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Atkinson, Mr. and Mrs.
James Mirfleld and chil lren; Mrs. II. n.

Among tbe appropriate presents re

Crubaugh, C. W. Negus and C. E. Case.
and a gold headed umbrella from Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. Wagner.
A splendid supper, bountiful and in
cluding a variety of rich dishes and deli
cacies was served, at the conclusion of
which Maj J. M. Beanlaley made a
pleasant address to the venerable cou
ple, during which be spoke fittingly of
the importance and happiness of the
event now celebrated. Christopher At
kinson be said was born in Yorkshire.
England, Jan. 6, 1819, and is now seventy-one
years eld. He went to Canada
when fourteen years of age and came to
Uoek Island in 1850. He was married
fifty years ago. on the 13ih of O toher.
l40,at Roch ster, N. Y . to a young lady.
Miss Ann Lambert, from Kent, England, J
and was twenty years of age at the time
of marriage. "When this young man.
Christopher Atkinson, and wife came to
Rock Island they bad been married ten
years. They bad born unto them
William, a young and promising boy.wbo
has not to his father and mother proved
without merit, and who wooed and won
the heart of one of Llinoia' fair daughters.
Miss Ella Louisa Green. They have been
blesstd with ten beautiful Atkinsons of
the real old slock, nine of whom now are
living. This son is now one of Rock
Island's most popular citizens and a large
contractor in tbe business his father
taught him in this and adjoining states."
He then spoke complimentary of each of
the daughters in the order of their birth and
whose names are now Mrs. Jas. M it field.
Mrs. H. H. Holland. Mrs. Barnes, of Den
ver, and Sirs. W. n. Eastman, of Daven
port, the latter married one week ago last
Friday, and in conclusion the speaker
said: "The children and grandchildren
who could be reached are here and there
is one bright eyed little boy. the son of
William's daughter Ruth, now Mrs.
Joseph Lane, of Davenport, and Mr. and
Mrs. Chri9toph Atkinson, have been made
great grandparents by no less a personate
than William Atkinson Lane."
Mr. Atkinson replied with much warmth
and feeling and expressed the pleasure of
himself and wife at being privileged to
greet so many -old fiiends on ao oc
casion so ftll of happiness to them. The
assemblage then repaired to tbe parlors
where there was vocal music by Mr. C.
E. Case and Mrs. E-tstman, Miss Ams
Atkinson and Mrs. Lane and Mr. Henry
Woltmann. It was near tbe midnight hour
when the gathering broke up after wish
