There is a Ko4 deal is the pretest s:v
naUoa to interest the coriaimtr of r,l la
taia city, a3 !a all thi vieiaH? tot that
matter. The write is still eScctic at
Cable, end there is bo hope or prur-ect of
tie ttrmiaatioo. The wj'.nirawal of that
xaoaat cf coal from the tri-etee tad the
trade tfcat the? iapplj front the Coal Tel
le? Mines is ecsticg some p5e a pocd
deal cf money, asd trvab'e of one kind
end Mother is arising.
So far. there das been bo t ooruge of
fad in this market, but there is. at the
tame time, to surplus Mo'i'ne aaamfac
tarers he beta irj'.ng to buy coal cn
this tide of the rirer, and hae faiied
Th dealers here seem to tare all tbtj
v sat to do to take care of their kcal ros
totcers. acd tboe who largtlj depend on
the Coal V!!t tataes for tbeir
supplj are Cndio? it a matter o? d fSsuIty
and tTte icioofit;iUT to fi!l the orders
end 'jiet tfie o njp!-in's of toe mall
dealers in tte e n; ai I to ns oatside of D
ecport. Miiica'.ice is complsiisg 'A
tcarcity. and the little places along the
Milwaukee and tie Bock Inland roads are
a.l beginaieg to cry oat Tieorous'y. They
hate been pretty well stocked, but tht
reterre is runnirg low bow, atd ltcy ficd
it nectsssry to replenish it.
Tbe strike teems not to be coaSasd to
Cable. A good msj people ia ths we;t
ern end of this city hare been bujice
their coal on the market, like tbey do
wood or hay, and the B'j?!o m-nes have
furnished this supply. Now ii is learced
Use re is trouble in the BjSiIo mines
Tbey are ail smai!, but thtrre has been
some (triking there. This hn decreased
the supply sj that the cost of the article
has been largely increased. I: has gotie
o p to 10 cents buebei at the mine, and
a day or so ago this Balilo coal sold on
the market be re at 15 cen's a bushel, or
3 75 a ton.
Eldridee & Docahne have been out of
coal for a week. Lon Gro? e is short
also, and there are wails from other
places, Yirjiog ia degrees of sadness b'j
all of them bad enough. The dealers
hare say that they are receiving as gocd
prices tor the car lots tbey pat into thes i
little places as they da for the retail or
ders that eo out of tbeir Tarda to this
city. Coal is coming in from f'iJIrrerjt
Brines, and from almost all points.
Within the past two weeks one
firm here has bad cars of
coal from 17 d.Zereot roads, and
from more this that somber of m;nes
This supply has kept np the fins in tbis
icty al! right, but it has not been e4e
qaate to tbe eatside trade. Dealers are
doing as much work now trying to quel!
their protesting customers in tbe illces
about Davenport as they are in the effort
to get coal.
It is stated that their is a shortage in
tbe clack market as welt as in tbe coal,
aad that tbis is felt here more keenly thin
tbe latter. One dealer here has a con
tract for sopplyjeg slack to one heay
consumer, and in order to ke-p bis eon
tract has been compelled to furnish lump
coal. This is costing him large sums of
money instead of yielding him a proSt,
bnt bis contract is one of those vise-like
affairs that will not let go.
If there were ta be a few more strikes
in the Illinois mines, about La Salle or
Peoria, there would probably be trouble
here. There would certainly be a sharp
advance in tae price of coal. This is
something 'hat has not jet been made,
though there has been talk of it, ard it is
likely that it will not be made unless
there is an advance in the cst to tbe
dealers here. Some of them, at least, sy
they will not take advantage of tbe neo
eseity of tbe people who depend oa tb'-m
for fuel, and that they will not put up
the price till it is put up on them. Dav
Tonight tbe comedy. "A Barrel of
Money," is to be presenttd at Harper's
theatre. It is one of tbe finest comedies
traveling tbis season, and in addition to
the amusing features incidental to tbe
production, there are a number of start
ling climases.aod some very fine scenery is
"The Pricce and the Paupct"atthe
Burtis will be one of the special events of
the theatrical season. Elsie Leslie heads
the organizvt'oQ. She has a drawing
power equal to that of many of the best
known stars, although she is only 11
years old. Her contract calls for a snite
of apartments for herself and mother in
the best hotel of every city
she visits, parlor cars, carriages to acd
from her hotel and the theatre, acd all
tbe other extras which high priced prima
donnas usually eitct. Her performance
in "Tbe Prince and Pauper"' is spoken of
The patrons of Harper's opera house
will next Monday have an opportunity of
witnessing of the best of military comedy
dramas when Henry P. Mawson's ply,
"A Fair Rebel." will hold the boards.
This play has made a great success in the
east and is now at tbe Havmarket theatre
playing to delighted audiences. The
Chicago papers are unanimous in praise
of this production.
Catarrh Can't be Cared
with local applications, as tbey cannot
reach the seat of tbe disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you baye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure ie taken
internally, and act directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
tbis country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of tbe best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. Tbe perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many cf whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
Catarrh i Diseases of Women
These physicians also guar
antee to stop any pain in the
body in from three to five min
utes without the use of medi
cine. Remember it costs noth
ing to see these doctors and
find out what your troubles
are, and if you can be cured
they will take your case, but if
you can't, then they will tell
you so. Xo matter what your
sickness js, go and get relieved
or find out if you can be cured.
Catarrh, they guarantee to
cure no matter how long stand
ing. Those pronounced in
curable or who had doctored
for months with their family
physician, are especially in
vited. It does not take months
to cure any case nor weeks
