The first tTay's canvass for subferip
tions to the stock in the Twin-City
Columbian Exposi Ion was attended by
ooft gratifying results. While the gen
t rl rfflcers of the soliciting committees
buve received Tcibal reports from the
ct airmen of all the committees of tbe
most encouraging nature, the committees
sre all holding bac their formal reports
in Lopes of mafcin as good a showing as
possible on coming in. In this they are
actuated by a spiri-. of pride which is en
tirely pardonable. The Argus observes
a frit ndly, but nevt rtheless earnest dispo .
uition to rival and excel among the vari
ous committees, wl.ich will be conducive
to tbe best possible results. It is ex
ceeding gratifying loo, to note the spirit
ofunison which is manifested. A mem
ber of a soliciting committee entering a
shop or factory finis tbat no workman
wants bis fellow workman to do more
than Le. and all are anxious and deter
mined to have something to do with the
This undertaking; is bound to win, it is
bound to be a success, end the time will
come when those who neglect this opprr
tunity so important to the twin-cities and
every individual resident of them, will
rrgiet they should have failed to do their
share. After ha virg stock in this enter
prise be it only one sbare one may
feel that he has done srmi-lhing person
blly to help his tcn along. Even were
the money donated he ought to feel it in
cumbent upen him to do his part. But
this is not a contribution in that sense of
the word. It is an ii. vestment, com
mended and recommended by men who
are willing to staka their reputation as
citizens of this con munlty on what tbey
say. Aside from the advantages to come
from the investment in a pecuniary way,
you do something to help the town which
gives you a living. It may be the first
chance of this kind you have had to dis
play your local pride in a practical way,
and if this undertaking were to fail, you
would not have a sim'.lcr opportunity
again for a very lorg while.
No man has to invest in tbe Columbian
exposition project. It is not like taxes.
But it is juBt as much tbe duty of every
property holder in Lock Island to assume
a portion of this obligation as it is to pay
his taxes. The success of a public en
terprise of the Bcopj of this exposition is
as essential to every property holder, to
every citizen, as it h that he pay his tax
es. One is obligatory and the other is
not that's tbe only difference. No man
is obliged to encourage the Columbian
exposition, but it U every man's duty to
encourage it and lo do it in a practical

STONECUTTERS INAUGURATE A SPLENDID
The Rock Island stonecutters have
shown their appreciation of the efforts to
promote tbe interest ) of Rock I-lacd and
tbe entire community, and have taken the
lead in a noble movement which is likely
to be followed by o 'her labor organiza
tions. Tbe following tells the story and
shows the public spirit of this branch of
Rock Island.March 4 II. P. Simpson,
secretary committee for Moline and Rock
Island Mechanical Exposition association
Dear Sir: At a meeting held by the
Stone Cutters' association of the t ri
ch ies last night it was decided to take S20
worth of stock in ths Moline and. Rock
Island Mechauical Exposition association.
The society came to this conclusion mi'.h
tbe belief that this is a project that the
labor societies and laboring people gen
erally can invest their money iu and have
the satisfaction of knowing that tbey
have done their shar;, and invested tbejr
money in a project that will not only be
a benefit to the tri-ciiies, but to this local
ity generally. Youn truly,
"Listed," as the brokers sav. at "100

Inrrnnisrmm and the K- hh t.
There were two more fires in D ven
port Kst uieht, and there are eviflt ncrsof
incendiary origin in both cases. At 11
o'clock tbe barn in the rear of the St.
James wis destroyed with contents, in
eluding a valuable little Shetland pony
belonging to the dughter of Landlord
Birdsall. The department did heroic
service, preventirg the preadirg of the
Shortly aftir a large frame building at
the corner of R pley and Tuird was dis
covered in flames, bat WdS savtd with a
loss of $503.
A sad accident accompanied the at
tempt to extinguish the fire at this place.
A ladder bed been thrown to the third
story window and Christ Hanson, d iver
of the twos, mounted to the top Willitni
Marshall clambered up right after him
and tbey were followed by one or tw o
other firemen who assisted in
runnirg the hose up to Han
sen, who sion had tbe nrzzle.
When the water was turned on the com
bined weight of hose snd men broke tbe
ladder and the men tumbled to the side
wa'.k. Hansen fell nearh 30 Keland was
injured across tbe region of tbe kidneys
and also strained his nerk and bruised
one leg. He got ur and was tbken into
Dr. Jay's residence near by, ani later to
his home ia the patrol wagon. Mr.
Marshall, the second man on the ladder,
also hurt one of Lit lees quite bddly. It
is not thought that the injuries of either
will prove permanent. No theory other
than that of incend arism can account for
either of the two fires.
Another evidence of Rock IInd's
prosperity, and the progressive spirit of
its business men is the opening of George
Schneider's new cash shoe store at 1712
Second avenue. The sto e has been en
tirely remodeled within and is now fur
nished throughout in natural wood. The
shelving is provided with handsome car
toons manufactured especially for the
new sir re which is also provided with
bicycle ladders and a new cash register.
The store is thoroughly metropolitan in
its appearance and is icdetd a credit to
the business portions of the city.
Krtll & Math, the confectioners, hive
received their partition which is strictly
in keeping with the other elt gant appoint
ments in their handsome new store. Few
cities there are of the size of Rock Island
which can banst a finer confectionery
than the one just men ioced.
Louis Glockhcff, tbe well known pro
prietor of the Arcade cigar store and bil
liard and pool p-rlors, is now settled in
his handsome store next door to his
former location. Tbe fixtures in tbe new
store are of tbe latest design and are the
finest in this vicinity, and speak volumes
for tbe enterprise and public spirit of the
A V.ctory for Sock Iiland.
Properly adjusted spectacles and eye
glasses are something that Rock Island
has long been in need of.
Prof. H. Hirschberg, the w.j11 known
optician of 629 Olive street, St. Louis,
has appointed T. H. Thorn ts agent for
his celebrated diam nd and non-changeable
spectacles and eye-glasses, where a
complete assortmeut can always be found.
Prof. H. Hirschberg will remain in Rock
Island April 7, 8 and 9. and all
those in need of properly adjusted spec
tacles and eye-glasses should avail them
selves of this opportunity. Examination
of eyes free of charge.
Its Excellent Qualities
Commend to public approval tbe Cali
fornia liquid firuit remedy Syrup of Fig4.
It is pleasing to the eye, and to the taste
and by acting gently on tbe kidneys, liver
and bowels, it cleanses the system fleet
ually, thereby promoting the health and
comfort of all who use it.
