aa seeking an entrance into this locality, I
was in the city this ttorning and called
on our leading manulacturing and job-'
ning establishments, tnd Maor JIcCon
ochie and later dropped into The Argcs
office. Mr. DeGroot stated that he is
teni out simply to lock over the ground
here and see if the company is wanted
here, and what are tl c inducements for
its coming. He is fu ly satisfied that the
new company will be welcomed and a'so
that there is a promibing field for the
company in the tri-ciries. Keck Island '
in particular would appreciate the advan
tage of having night and Sunday tele
graph service, and not be de
pendent, as it h is been for two
years, on tte railroads for this con
venience. These advantaees and &'.k
greatly reduced r&t ;s, the Postal Com
pany promises if it builds to this locality.
A few years ago Malay's Postal Tele

Ohio telegraph lines i.nd it has grown to
be a formidable rival of the Gould cor
pcration since, until ii now controls con

G0. F. ROTH,
A 'orrepod-nt lVlio Does Xot Like
the Nnnrrt 1'aik Idea and Who
Rock Islaxd, August 24. Editor
Akocs: I notice in the dailv papers a
proposition to be pre9 cted by the Busi
ness Men's association to the city council
recommending that th; city establish a
park between Tenth ard Thirteenth
streets on the river front. This may look
to the men owning property arij nnin
ttic proposed park, Iik.j a grami project,
but to the tax payer outside of tLe im
mediate neighborhood it is likely to be
luokcd upon with somj suspicion.
The project contemplates the abandon
ment of First avenue t ttween lenlh and
Thirteenth streets and closing it to busi
ness, and the rea oval of the tracks of 'be
railroad company. Admit, if you choose,
tins could be done, let us see what we
have "ot in the way f material for a
park; t-imi.ly an ill shnped strip of land
tbe surface of whreh is from one to three
feet below high wa'er mark, to be tilled
in at an enormous expanse to tbe city
without a friendly tree or shrub to Eh el
ter the visitor while wutrhiDg the setting
sun. Then, tbe entire sewerage or the
neighborhood is emptied along the front
of this strip and lies at low
water on the stones basking in
the sun, ready for prevailing winds
to watt it into the park. The cost which
ttiese gentlemen assume will be so lisbt
will run into the thousands at the exi
pense of tne taxpaveis, as any thought
ful man must know. The expenses of
the tity arc rapidly ire reading and going
at present outlook far bevond our pro
spective income. I am a firm believer in
public improvements, but before any new
park schemes are taken up let the council
carry out the promises made to the peo
ple of tbe lower part of the city and fin
ish up and beautify Gamsey park, which
ii now an unsightly pi a :e and a disgrace
to our part of the city. This will take
all the funds tbe city will have to spare
for a good while.
Then too, instead of sunset parks, let
us have some of our back streets brought
to grade, new sidewalks built, the slough
filled up and many things done that
would greatly add to 1 ealtb, benefit the
property of working ieople, and, beau
tify our city, before recreate any ex
pensive river front parks, fit only for a
f.;w wealthy people. "Litter on it will be
time to lay out and adopt some compre
hensive syatem of parks on the bluffs
where pure air is abundant and nature
has beautified the grounds and made them
ready for use. Yours truly.

Siturday was the 4Sih oirlbday of
F. C. Hemenway and iust before bis de
parture from the cracker factory where
he is superintendent he was called into a
room where tbe employes of the factory
were assembled where Charles Godehn
on behalf of tbe employes presented him
with a handsome book case. Mr. Ilemen
way was ccmpletly surprised and in a
short speech th&nked those who had pre
sented it, and left for his summer home
on VandruS's island, where in tbe even
ing a large number of his friends from
Moline, Rock Islaud and Davenport had
assembled, aud while Mr. Hemenway
was inside oce of bis tents it was sur
rounded by hia friends . Sheriff Gordon
stepped inside and placing him under
arrest and brought him before tbe crowd.
Mayor McConocbie wks introduced and
in a few appropriate 'remarks presented
Mr. Hemenway with a beautiful gold
watch. This second surprise fairly took
his breath away but he managed to thar.k
his friends as bust hi could under the
circumstances, and the siu sis were then
given the freedom of the camp and en
tertained in a royal manner.
An Argus reporter made a trip to the
amp yesterday and came upon Camp
Comfort just before dinner. Looking
into the large kitchen tent he discovered
Messrs. Dodge, Barth, Reimers and
Cleavelind in the act of preparing the
mid day meal. They appeared to be
tight at borne in their occupation and all
who partook of the delicious spread unite
in saying that it was done to the queen's
taste. The following was the menu:
Bullion and wafers.
Salmon, baea and cat.
Tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, core, lima beaus
Ice cream and cocoanut cake.
The denizens of Camp Comfort were
elegantly entertained on Friday night by
Louis Kohn in his camp at Sears.
