IMPORTANT MEETING! THIS EVENING
Public Spirited CI lien will Have a Chne

A meeting; of all public-spirited
eitizens who are interested in secur
ing the Noxall factory will be held
in the rooms of Hie Citizens' Improve
ment association this evening at 7:30
o'clock, and it is hoped that every
one who has the interest of our city
at heart will attend this meeting and
have explained to them the propo
sition of Messrs. Lesem and Xelke,
of loeatin": here a large faetorv. simi

Owing to the. limited time we have
to accomplish what is necessary to
be done, and the limited time the
committee can span- to do it. it is
ihouo-ht advisable to call this meet
ing so that all will have an oppor
tunity to learn all the farts regard

a Teat deal of the committee's time
to make the necessary statement to
each one separately.

The first game of base ball for the
season occurred at Twin City ball
park yesterday afternoon, being the
game between pick nines of Itock Isl
and and Moline, for the benefit" of
Harry O Day, the old Twin City sec
ond baseman. The contest was wit
nessed by about 301) people and net
ted $64 for Mr. O'Day. The game
was aHvthing but exciting or even
entertining, being entirely one
sidod,ud utterly devoid of anything
akin to brilliant plays. The local
professionals were distributed among
the players of the opposing teams,
the make of the nines being as follows:
Tlie Oiiponing Team.

C.One may learn from Quincy of the
"enninencss of. the worth of tlie Nox
all factory and of what it has done
for that city. Starting in. a small
wav there six years ago, it has grown
to be one of the most prominent and
most prosperous factories of its kind
in the United States, and an idea
mav be hail of its ad
vantage to all lilies of
trade when it is said that the streets
of Quincy present a holiday appear
ance when the Noxall factory turns
out its S;) girls on- the streets after
paying them off at i o'clock Satur
day afternoon. But this is only one
of the advantages incidental to the
establishment (,f the Noxall factory
at Quincy. The starting of the box
factory and the springing up of a
number of smaller industries similar
to the Noxall, where girls are em
ployed, are some of the other fruits
of the Noxall's enterprise and pluck.
The factory at Quincy.
The Noxall factory building in
Quincy was erected in 1890. It is
three Stories high besides a basement,
and has a floor space of 4 ),000 square
feet. It is lighted from all sides by
generous windows, and also lighted
from above by two large sky-lights.
It is fitted "throughout w'ith all
modern appliances for health, safety
and comfort. The stairways are in a
brick tower, are insolated "from the
main building, and the building is
equipped with an outside iron stair
case for use in case of tire. It is by
all odds the most commodious, best
lighted, best ventilated, and most
cheerful factory building for the em
ployment of female help in the United
States. It is constructed of pressed
brick with stone trimming.
Attempted Mull KoMwry.
Saturday two mail sacks were
found hanging on the fence near the
Atlantic house, opposite the Perry
street depot, Davenport. Both of
them hail large slits in them, but
nothing else. These sacks came in
from Colorado Springs on Friday
evening's southwest Rock Island
train. The ear that brought them
stops and is turned back at Daven
port, and the mail is always trans
ferred there from the midnight main
line train from the west for Chicago.
The transfer is made by stacking the
mail sacks on a baggage truck which
is left in front of the baggage and ex
press office door on the depot plat
form, supposedly always under
guard. There are. "however, moments
when a sack or two might be snatched
out of the heap. It is supposed that
these two sacks were taken out of the
transer Friday night while it was
awaiting the arrival of the Chicago
train. They had been opened and
emptied by "the clerks this side of St.
Joseph. Mo., ami were still enipty
wheti they were purloined. The gov
ernment "loses two old sacks which
would have been replaced before long
anvway, and the thief loses his time.
Nevertheless the government would
like to get its hooks on him.
The Telephone Service. - i r
Some time ago the Central Union
Telephone company placed all its
bridge lines in cables. These cables
gave them insulation against the
strong telegraph and electric light
and power currents that crossed the
bridge right along with them, and
filled the telephones of the three
cities with all sorts of sounds of fry
ing and singing and scratching and
buzzing. The result was a great im
provement in the service across the
river. Kecently tnese linage lines j
have been cabled in like manner be- ;
tween the bridge and the Davenport
office, and the same thing is now be-:
ing clone between the bridge and the
Kock Island office. When these ,
cables are completed it is expected !
that conversation between persons
separated bv the Mississippi will be ,
as clear and distinct and satisfactory '
as though they were out in the couu- .
try and miles away from all these in- ,
terruptions that have made so much .
trouble in the past. ;

The Striking Operator.
The telegraphers, operators and
dispatchers, who left the service of
the Rock Island road last winter in
what was assumed to be a strike of
alarming proportions, have not been
traveling tlowery beds since then, if
reports are to be trusted. It is re
ported that very few of these men,
some of whom gave up good berths,
have succeeded in getting anything
to do, and all who have found em.
plovment, with hardly an exception,
have been compelled to take vastly
reduced wao-es. One man, in a Rock
Island office', not many miles west,
was drawing $G5 a month from the
company, with perquisites amount
ing to something more, making his
safary not less than $75 "a month, has
been working for a telegraph com
pany in the same town for $20 a
month. Reports from these men

A collision occurred between M. A.
Lloyd's little mare,' driven by Mr.
Lloyd, and the horse of Mr. Krohn,
the" florist, on Eighteenth street be
tween Fifth and Sixth avenues Sat
urday afternoon. Mr. Lloyd was
driving out Eighteenth street at a
fairly good rate, when Mr. Krohn
drove in from the side avenue, anil
the two vehicles came together in an
instant, and both were somewhat
wrecked, Mr. Lloyd being thrown out
on his head, while the contents of the
florist's wagon were scattered along
the thoroughfare. Mr. Lloyd's horse
broke away from the buggy and
started up Eighteenth street, but was
caught in the next block and taken
to Flick's livery stable. Both vehi
cles were considerably damaged and
Mr. Lloyd's horse injured, but not
seriously. Mr. Lloyd was stunned
for the time being, but soon recov
