IT'S A BIG DEAL.
The Rock Island illuminating Combina
tion. The purchase of the Rork Island G -it-works
by the Brush Electric company
means more to Rock Island than the
mere consc.lidation of two treat illumin
ating enterprises. "The combination
meaoB better light, more light and cheap
er light," is the way R, II. McMullen, tte
popular general manager cf the Brush
company puts it. "And furthermore."
ccnlinued Mr. McMullen, we propose to
furnish cheap heat and plenty of it. We
will pipe it to ycur homes and furnish i:
in the same abundance and as conven
iently and tconornically, as people now
o'jtiin their water supply. You may
have something of an idea of what we
propose to do here, when I say that th
Brush company baa already investtd
$150,00 here and will not slop at that,
but continue to expend money until it has
things in shape to suit it.
"We propose to put up a handsome
building at the foot of Seventeenth street
on the lot recently purchased from Mr3.
Riley opposite th3 gas works, and there
will be centered our consolidated icttr
e9t. We mean busice3a. We have
come here to stay."
