The Daren port Democrat takes a sug
gestion offered by The Argus the other
evening, as a text for the following dis
course which is as sound in logic a it is
apropos of the present tri-city 6ltu
The Abgus says that Rock Island
would like to have the opportunity of
entertaining the next Western Waterways
convention, mentioned in these columns
Sunday morning, but that, since Daven
port has spoken for the meeting first and
has first claim on it she will not seek in
any manner to wrest the honor from us;
rather than that she will eive us all the
aid she can in entertaining the delegates
and in making the convention a success.
This is the sort of spirit that should
prevail all throush the three cities. L cal
jealousies and petty spites have no right
ful place here. What is the interest of one
of these three towns should be the concern
of the others. A certain detree of local
pride and good matured generous emula
tion are all right and perfectly proper,
but they should not be carried to the ex
tremes that are to be occasionally noted
here and on the other side of the river.
This point is really one community.
There is a vast diversity of interest here,
but there is room for it all. and room for
far more than there is here. Davenport
is doing well. Its business houses and
retail stores and factories are all prosper
ins, its commeice is being extended, and
its borders are being enlarged . It should
not be envious when Roik Island or Mo
line gets a new enterprise, nor should
they be when it is likewise blest.
The day may come when not only Rock
Island and Moline will be consolidated,
but when the three towns shall practically
grow into one. They are one now in
many respects. Located as they are,
each upon the borders of the others,
there are many things that are common to
them, and many things that tbey com
mand jointly which could not come to
any one of them singly and separately.
Tbey all ought to remember, more dili
gently than they do, that in union there
is strength, and join teams instead of
pulling against each other.

A Murderous Attack.
Alex Moore and John Smith, two col
ored laborers were walking up Perry
street in Davenport' last evening, when
near Third street Smith without warning
struck his companion in the abdomen
with hia pocketknife, thrusting the blade
in deep and then drawing it toward him,
inflicting a terrible wound about six
inches in length Smith then made his
escape in a rather remarkable manner.
He arrived at the ferry dock just in time
to catch the out going boat, which landed
him in Rock Island just in time to catch the
freight train that was on the point of leav
ing for St. Louis. He is known to have
ensconced himself on the bumpers of this
train and was well out of the city by the
time that the officers in pursuit of him
reached this city . The stations along the
line were telegraphed to in the hope that
he will be picked oft of the train some
where, but the prospects of bis capture
do not look very promising.
Both men were lie carriers, had received
their pay yesterday and both were under
the influence of intoxicant when the
assault occurred. The exact cause of the
affray is not known. The victim is in a
Tourists and travelers to Manilou and
the mountains are advised that from Chi-,
cago over the Great Rock Island route
through sleepers and through chair cars
are run daily to Colorado Springs.
Take this, as it is the cool northern
route, and the only direct one from Chi
cago to Colorado Springs, and avoid de
lays at Denver and Pueblo.

SEAL ESTATE BOOM.
The Veaerally Healthy Condition f
Property all Over the State.
The great advance which has been
made In the prices of real estate, both
city and country, throughout the state of
Illinois is attracting the attention of the
public Many theories are advanced and
many causes assigned, but that which
bears the stamp of r.'ason to a greater ex
tent than the others, says the Peoria Jour
nal, is the fact that the rate of interest for
money has greatly depreciated within the
past 10 years. Even five years ago 8 per
cent mortgages, with a 2 or 3 per cent
commission were common and a ready
market could be found for capital at these
rates, bat since that time the rate of in
terest has steadily fallen until today first
class loans are made at 5 per cent with
out commission. Many such mortgages
have been nego iited al hough the nomi
nal advertised rates of interest is 6 per
cent- Now it is evident that good real
estate in Illinois will and does pav a
higher rate per cent than this and conse
quently a great deal of capital is just now
being invested in lands and city property.
Whenever the rate of interest falls below
what can be secured front rentals then the
value of real property must necessarily
advance. Farm lands that were selling
eyen two years ago at 40 per acre can -not
now be had for less than $50 and in
some localities $60 and $70 is the price
This state of facts gives evidence of
prosperity in all walks of life and soon
Illinois will be a money lending state.
Farm lands will be hieb and money will
be plenty. Much of it will go to the
western states and territories there to help
build up and increase the material wealth
of the citizens. For a number of years
Illinois has looked to Massachusetts and
the older states of the east for capital, but
she is now almost in condition to supply
every demand of her people and at the
same time time have a surplus for other
states further west. This is a matter that
cannot be toe carefully considered, and
Peoria people may rest assured that
investments at the present time in acre
property and town lots will be amply re
warded in the beaf future.
This is likewise true as regards Rock
Island. Real estate was never a safer,
bitter investment here than just at this

Scarcely lees foolish is the practice of those who
fly to violent physicing for coniveness. They
dose themselves violently weaken their bowels by
so doing;, and disable them from acting regolarly,
so that, verily, the last condition of such people
is worse than the first. Hostctter's Stomach Bit
ters is the safe and effective substitute for snch
vast expedients, for It is by r.v. means expedient
to use them. What is needed is a gnt!o bat
thoroneh laxative, which not only Insnres action
cf the bowels without pain or weakening effects,
which also promotes a healthy secretion and flow
of biie into its proper channel. Dyspepsia, de
bility, kidoey complaints, rheumatism and ma
laria give in to the Bitters.
