THE PETERSEN BUILDING.
The editor of the TJoion takes his Rey
nold 8 correspondent to tasx in nearly a
column article, for sayicg "no matter
which candidate is elected, the country
wiil be safe," referring to Cleveland and
Harrison. The statement of the Rey
nold's writer and the philippic issued by
the Union furnishes a striking contrast
between the candid and demagogic in
politics. To the newspaper profession it
also reveals a new manner of editing
"country correspondence", and suggests
that the Reynolds man should be pro
moted to a higher position on the Union's
s'aff. He seems to be endowed with
Positive of Victory.

It Wat Formally Opened on Saturday A
Stpnumeut to the Enterprise of Daren
port's Wlde-Awake Xry 6oods Merchants
Saturday witnessed the opening of the
new Petersen building, corner of Second
and Main, Davenport. It wsa au-auspicious
affair, and marked a new era in the
dry goods business, at least,of our neigh
bor across the river. A continuous
stream of people poured through the
building the entire day and evening, em
phasizing by their presence that they ap
preciated the enterprise, public spirit and
progress! veness of the Messrs. Petersen.
It was just about 20 years ago, the
Democrat sava that J. H. C. Peterson
established a very small general store at
219 West Second street. The place wsa
20x50 feet in size, one story, and was big
for the business at the time. Mr. Peter
sen had just about $1,400 in cash and no
credit. ' He wss unknown in the com'
mercial world . His three sons, Max D.,
William D., and Henry F., all of them
mere lads then, made an arrangement
and agreement with him to the effect that
vrhen the business should reach a certain
point when there should be a certain Bum
in it, they were to be admitted as part
ners. It was their desire to go west, and
thev had talked of that matter in their
boyish way, but they determined to see
their father and mother well provided
for before they went, and so it was sets
tied that when they could go and leave
them with a comfortablo sum $10.000
thev would be taken into the firm or be
at liberty to leave.
Oa this basis, mutually satisfactory,
thev went to work. Work it was. There
was no time for pleasure or loafing.
Early at it in the morning, late at it at
night, hardl venturing forth from the
store, father and s-jls 6oent the earlier
years of their business career. They
made their cffort9 tell. They did busi
ness on a f quare bsis, and they made
money. It was not squandered but was
turned into the business acd kept at
work. In the spring of 1875, after some
thing lik-3 three years of devoted work,
the first inventory was taken. It was to
satisfactory that the boys determined to
slay where they were, and the firm be
came J. H. Petersen & Sons.
In 1884 it began to become apparent
that there would come a day when en
largement wonl l be demanded beyond
the capacity of the place where they were
for such enlargement. That year H. F.
Petersen bought, as a Tersonal invest
mcnt, the cround occupied by the new
building. Two years ago the work of
nreoarins for the building began. It
would have been prepareJ for long be
fore if the property had not been held by
lessees whose rights of tenure ran till
Jan. 1,1802 The members of the firm
devoted themselves to the acquiring of
knowledge with which to supplement and
round out the teachings of their on 18
years' experience. They visited every
larere department store in America that
had a lesson for them. They invest:
gated, studied, searched into and looked
ihrouyu everything in the matter of ar
rangement, of heating, lighting, ventilat
ing, furnishing with r-- and fitting
up with conveniences and appliances.
No detail was overlooked tr omitted.
The result stands as has been said, the
finest monument to push, energy, bard
work and intelligent methods and the
commercial prosperity of Dsycnpcrl that
c'uld possibly have been erected.
