Henry Nelk of Quincy, has been in
the city the past couple of days in the in
terests of Lesem & Co., of that place,
who are manufacturers of overall.,
shirts, pants, coats and jackets. The
company has a large factory established
at Quincy, and it is their intention to es
tablish a branch factory somewhere in
this vicinity. Mr. Nelke has been look
ing over the ground here and is pleased
with the city and surroundings, and will
no doubt report favorably
to his company. If established
it will give employment to
a large number, and particularly to girls,
as the company's business is constantly
growing, which has been the cause of
their determination to start a branch
The city has several different locations
that could be utilized to an advantage in
establishing the factory here and the mat
tar ought to be looked into by the Im
provement association, in order to let the
company know that Rock Island is awake
and desirous of securing anything that
will be an advantage to the city .
Eti Mosenfielder, with his accustomed
public spirit, is pushing the matter of
bringing the branch factory to Rock Island.
MAKING HASTE SLOWLY.
Tho Wiodoti tr th Korkford com
pany's Contract ravins That Re
mains for the Meason.
The Rockford Construction company
is making haste slowly with the round up
of its paving contract commenced with
the improvement of Tbird avenue. The
work on Nineteenth street is barely movs
ing owing to the shortage of brick, the
Third avenue job and contracts else
where having exhausted all the company
could produce at Its kilns at Sears. The
consequence is that the completion of
Nineteenth street and also Commercial
alley, which is ready for the pavers, will
consume some days yet.
Then the company will have to take a
respite before embarking upon its con
tracts for E-tstand West Seventeenth, Six
teenth, Fifteenth and Fourteenth streets,
which the company has promised to fins
ish this season.
Edwards & Walsh are now at work
paviDg the court at the Rock Island de
pot, which was made a part of the firm's
contract with the company in connection
with the Moline avenue frontage .and this
will be completed in a few days.
Tne indications are that all the paving
work in Rock Island contracted for this
season will be finished by the time frost
appears, so that all contractors may be
free to bid upon the South Twentieth
street and Fourth avenue contracts dur
ing the winter, and perhaps Seventeen th,
Eighteenth and Nineteenth streets.
