Rock Island, 111., Jan., 5, 1893. To
the Honorable Mayor and City Council of
the city of Rock Island: In explanation
of the fict that the National Clay Co.
has refuse' to quote prices on brick to
contractors o'her than the Rock ford Con
struction Co., we would respectfully sty
we have been unable hitherto to name
prices to others than those directly in
terested in oar brick, on account of our
factory being a new industry with many
difficulties to encounter and a name to
snxke for its product, which we consider
con Id be done only by those having di
rect interest in the same: we feared any
prices named might be used by rival in
dustries to unfairly underbid us. or if
not, then ih'.t our brick might be so
handled as to impair its reputation which
we were endeavoring to build up for
them, and previous to the last meeting of
the city council we had authorized Aid.
Guyer to explain our position as above.
If, however, tbe city sees fit to protect a
Rock Itland industry by specifying Rock
Island brick in the work to be done this
season, we will name prices on the sm3
to all responsible parties and make eu-h
figures as will kep the price below that
of outside factories.
