SURPRISING THE PUBLIC?
Robert Kraase to Retire From the
He Will Devote Himself Exclusively
to the wholesale Trade A fcireat
Business fcJrows From a Small
The citizens of Davenport and vicinity
will be greatly surprised to learn that
Robert Krause has decided to go out of
the retail business and devote himself
exclusively to the wholesale trade. This
decision on his part was not arrived at
on account of poor trade, but because
h is wholesale business has assumed such
large proportions that it requires all his
time and undivided attention.
Mr. Krause came to Davenport early
in the '50's and began business in one of
the rooms now occupied by the German
Savings bank. At that time he did a
wholesale business, delivering his goods
throughout the state by means of a wagon.
It was from this small beginning that the
business grew. But this grand success
was not attained without hard work and
close attention to every detail of the
business. Added to this he always car
ried a first-class stock and in all his deal
ings he was strictly honest and conscien
tious. His business grew rapidly and he
was obliged to seek larger quarters and he
moved into the building which he now
occupies. After a time he commenced
the manufacture of wearing apparel. In
this he has been as successful as in his
other business and it is on account of the
great demand for his goods that he has
decided to abandon the retail business.
His factory now occupies about 6,000
square feet and 100 sewing machines are
kept running all the time by electricity
manufactured from his own dynamo.
A foreman, two assistants and three
cutters are kept busy setting material
ready for the many girls who are em
ployed in the work. In addition to the
sewing machines are three button-hole
machines which are kept busy, also a ma
chine to sew the buttons on. There are
few in Davenport who are aware of this
bee hive of industry. It is an interesting
sight to take a look through the work
rooms and see the rapidity with which
the work is turned out, and all is done in
a manner which cannot be excelled any
place in the country. Last year fully a
quarter of a million of garments were
turned out of this factory, all of Mr.
Krause's own-brands, known to the trade
as the Tri-City Pants and Shirts
Crow overalls, and the Robert Krause
reversible duck coats. The territory in
which these goods are sold extends from
7-3 miles west of Chicago to the Pacific
slop?, embraciDt; western Illinois, all ot
Iowa, Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Mis
souri, southern Minnesota and portions
of o'.her western states and territories.
The merchant tailoring department is
known throughout the entire west. This
branch of the business is particularly
good in Oregon, Wyoming, Washington
To transact this immense business re
quirts a lurte force of men. Ten travel
ias men are kept busy all the year round
and in the store are 19 clerks. The total
number on the pay rotl is in the neigh
borhood of 150 persons. The wholesale
business is constantly increasing and the
entire building is now needed to accom
The building is 40x159 feet and three
stories high. The retail department
c jntains upward of 75,000 worth of

goods which will be closed out at once
regardless of cost. Davenport Tribune.
The Broadway Excursion.
It is clear now that tomorrow will be
a good day and it is expected the boat
will be more than filled. Considering the
scenery from herelto Clinton, and the
complete rest that a day on the river
gives, those who go are sure of a good
The number who can go is limited, and
no ons will be admitted to the boat with
out a ticket. They can be bought this
evening at Von Koekritz, Marshall &
Fisher's. Stewart & Montgomery's, Loos
ley's, and Young's and Ralph Haveri
stick will have tickets at the Broadway
prayer meeting tonight.
The boat will start promptly at 9
o'clock. Those who have not by that
time obtained tickets, will be left behind.
Ralph Hsverstick will be at the Diamond
Jo office at 8 o'clock to sell them, and
those who don't buy today will do well
to be at the office at that time.
As before announced, Krell & Math
will serve coffee and sandwiches, ice
cream, lemonade, cake, etc., on the boat
at reasonable prices. They will have
ample help in serving.
