Rock Island has made wonlerful
progress in building improvements
in the last few years. The report
in detail appearing in The Annus at
the beginning of the year con ained
the record made the past year in this
regard. In the way of new business
blocks, the city has not been back
ward, a number of handsome struc
tures having risen in various locali
ties. The need 'of such improve-j
ments, too, has been invariably
shown by the way such new build
ings have tilled up, and the fait that !
there is not a vacant store room in
the city at the present time, demon
strates that a want has been sup
More lIulldNi4 nantfd
But as further evidence that Kock
Island is still in threat need of mod
ern business blocks, it may b said
that within a week we may have
lost a mammoth new mercantile
store, simply because no accommo
dations could be offered to ind ice its
location here. A gentleman who
was enterprising enough to tear
down a rattletrap on one of ourmain
busincs.- thoroughfares and reet a
modern business block instead, was
offered a most tempting chance to
least- fur five years, to vacate the
storeroom and permit the incoming
timrchant to have possession. The
gentleman could not afford to make
the sacrifice and the business man
who thus sought to locate help, may
possibly go elsewhere.

The A lifers has referred from time
to time tu building improvements
anl extensions in contcmplat on the
' comiii'r season, but lookintr over the
list, it is hardly probable that even
then the requirements of the situa
tion in Kock Island will be in any
way met. '-What we need is more
modern and more commodious store
rooms," said a merchant th.' other
day. "I desire a larger store; here
I am cramped for room, an 1 can't
make anything like the display of
stock that I would like to but what
am 1 going to do? I cannot et any
better accommodations. If sone pro

Jo?teph't to ik Large Audience Coming
"Joseph," a comedy of excellent
merit, was presented at Harper's the
atre last evening by Ramsay Mor
ris' comedians. A large and ap
preciative audience was present, and
while the entertainment possesses
the elements of enjoyment and suc
cess to a marked degree, there were
apparent evidences of curtailment
last evening, the purpose being a de
sire on the part of the company to
catch a train east at 10:37. The man
ager of the company was desirous of
raising the curtain at H o clock, but
Manager Montrose protested, as his
patrons are accustomed to having en
tertainments commence at 8:30. The
company then inconsiderately cut the
performance. Mr. Montrose has been
giving us a good class of shows the
present season, and it is to be re
gretted that he should be so treated
in his endeavors to elevate the stan
dard of plays here.

company had advertised were ne

"My Jack," a sterling melodrama,
w ill be the attraction at Harper's
theater Tuesday evening. There
is at least one scene in it
which is strong enough to carry al
most any play. The scene referred
to describes a desert w here the vil
lian and the hero meet and try con
clusions. P. Aug. Anderson is the
Greek villian and the manner in
which he pleads for life when cor
nered is quite moving. There is a
great deal of plot and powder mixed
up fn the piece also a deadly knife

Hits ot News of Interest to Railroad Men
The Tri-Citv Bridge and Terminal
company is having hard work to
make the residents of the upper end
of Scott county see enough in its
project of a line to Clinton to' vote a
tax to aid it. Meetings for and
against the scheme were held, and
red hot debates resulted. The elec
tion on the question of voting the tax
came off, and Princeton township
voted against it, while LeClaire
township voted for it. Now those
against it in the latter township are
raising money to fight the assessment
on the grounds of illegality and
irregularity, in Princeton the com
pany has made a new proposition to
the residents to the effect that not a
cent of the tax w ill be taken until the
road is entirely completed and the
irain service is begun. A new flec
tion w ill be held there, while dow n at
LeClaire the kicking of the anti-road
men goes merrily on.
