'Cbina, Qla-r. Lamps,
If the 1.C00 men frozen out of work
and homes by the tyrannical methods of
Carnegie & Co., at, Lomestead, desire
employment at Reed wages. Rock Island
offers them the same, and a home free
from the oppressions which have been
imposed upon them in Pennsylvania. It
is not an exaggeration to say that Rock
Island can furnish work to 1.000
good men at the pret ent time, and there
is not a contractor in the city or vicinity
who is cot in need of men andteamsand
all are willing to pay eood prices to se
cure them. Edwards & Walsh on the
Moline avenue paving contract, the
Rockford Construction company on
Third avenue, the contractors in charge
of the Hennipin canal construction all
nre advertising for laborers, and the la-'ti-
r worthy of his hire need not
Mand by idle in R ck Island these days.
In a few days, tie indications are that
ac:ive operations will be commenced on
the Columbian grounds, the building of
fences and buildiBgs, and completion of
grand stand and track grading. These
contracts mentiontd are all larce ones
requiring gcd men, while all through
the city, business houses haye signs out
calling for two, four, six and 10 men
The demand for men in Rock Island
is a ign of the times, indicative of what
Rock Island is doing, and the opportuni
ties here for people seeking homes where
they may earn an honest livelihood.
Miss Rosa May made two more success
fa' balloon ascensions in front of the
Tower Saturday and yesterday. The
fi st of the two was a particularly
remarkable feat, the daring aeronaut
attaining a height of fully 4.000 feet
directly above the island from which the
ascension was made, and cut loose only
when the balloon began to descend
aain. The parachute opened beauti
fully, the little lady alighting in a tree.
bat escaping inury. Yesterday she
made nnctber thrilling ascension and
leap, going up about 2.0U0 ftet.
The new slide at the Tower is now
operating successfully, electricity being
used as a motive power to return the
boat to the starting point.
In further pursuance of his determina
tion to have everything conducted in a
neat arid orderly m inner at the Tower,
Prssident L uJerback has delegated to
Louis Goben duties of special po
liceman, and has ordered a hindsome
uniform f ar him, the color to be gray as is
customary with park police in other
cities. Mr. Lnuderback will ask the
authorities having lawful jurisdiction
over the premises to clothe as many men
as he may reed for police with police
powers, and the right will no doubt be
readily acceded, as in the case of watch
men. The manifest carelessness f the
men running the special Sunday trains on
the Tower line in In; matter of uniforms
is a matter that is frequently commented
upon. That on this line above all
others the rule of President L9uderback
should be diregarded, is in no sense
commendable of those to whose change
th? management of ihis branch is dele
gated, and it seems that the only way the
rule can be enforced pending upt. Hun
toon's return to health, is for some one
in higher authority to tske the matter in
hand. The past two Sundays, while
some of the men have appeared in regu
lation uniform, others have presented
the most slovenly appearance of any on
the company's lines. Men who can't
obey the company's rules are unfit for
the compiny's service.
Mrs. August Herkert is to have charge
of the culinary department of Black
Hawk's Ion hereafter as her many
friends will be pleased to know.

There is probably no more impassable
thoroughfare in Rock Island than Four
teenth avenue is at times when there
is any occation for bad roads anywhere.
At the same time ttere is no avenue that
can be made of more importance to the
city by proper development than Four
teenth avenue, as it reaches a territory
that has not heretofore been brought :n
proper communication with the city. It
was in realization of the vast possibilities
of development up in that neighborhood
that The Akgcs was led to so strongly
urge the extension of street railway com
munication to the locality and the putting
in of a track at once without consideration
of the rail to be used. The council did
the right and proper thing in passing the
ordinance of the Davenport & Rock
Island Railway company , which has come
to the aid of the Tri-Cities in so many
public improvements, and thus was made
the first step in putting the avenue in
And, as street improvements have
everywhere followed the 6treet railway

cities, so they promise already to on
Fourteenth avenue. A proposition is
likely to come before the council at to
night's meeting looking to the permanent
grading of the avenue and the putting of
it in a good condition for traffic at once.
As evidence of appreciation of the coun
cil's always fair disposition toward rail
way company. President Louderback
has offered $250 toward defraying the
expense of the improvment if any
arrangement can be made whereby the
city and other interested property hold

on either side the words "Everts Com

matter was referred, is of interest:
U. S. Engineer's Office. Rock Isl

turn to Chief of Engineers, U. S A m. :
Muscatine slough has never received any
consideration in connection with the ick
provement of the upper Mississippi
liver. It is cut off from tbe river by
dams and railroad bridges. It
has not been used by the Missis
sippi river commerce. accord
ing to enclosed letter, for
35 years, or within the recollection
of such of the oldest navigatorj as
have been consulted. It is reported to me
that portions of the slough are almost dry
at low water. While its waters may be
connected by minor channels with the
aters of the Mississippi, the slougb.
which lies wholly within the state of
Iowa like many others along tbe river
is not needed for purposes of Mississippi
So far as the interests of navigation
are concerned, it would not appear to me
to be necessary or desirable to maintain
that Muscatine slough forms any part of
tbe navigable waters of the Mississippi
river or the United S.ates.
