RESULT OF LAST NIGHT'S MEETING.
The Proposition to Itrtns; the Kranch of the
lllK Industry to Itork Inland Folly Ki
plalned and DlMcuNged and a CnmpreheO'
alve l'liin ot I'rocedure Determined lp
un The General Committee la Charge.
The meeting of the citizens held
last night at the rooms of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation to tako into consideration the
proposition of the Noxall bhirt and
overall factory of Quincy looking to
the establishment of a branch indus
try in Rock Island, resulted in the
original committee on subscriptions
and site composed of Messrs. L.
Simon. John Ohlweiler and E. II.
Guyer, being enlarged to nine and a
definite plan of canvass under a sys
tem of classification being determin
ed upon, the committee as increased
including in addition to Messrs.
Simon, Ohlweiler and Guver, Messrs.
W. B. Maucker. II. 1). Fo'lsom, Wil
liam Roth, T. J. Medill, Jr., W. B.
Ferguson and Eli Mosenfelder. This
commitiee meets promptly at 7:j0
this evening at the rooms of the Im
provement association to adopt it
plan of canvass and proceed with it.
V. B. Ferguson, as chairman of
the meeting on the previous evenig.
called the gathering to order, and
proposed L. Simon for chairman, and
that gentleman was duly elected,
w Hereupon Jonn. uniwener was
chosen as secretary. Mr. Simon
briefly explained the object of the
meeting, detailed what the commit
too on subscriptions had accom
plished and what it hoped to accom
plish. lie told of what the Noxall
factory had done in Quincy, its rea
sons for seeking to locate branch
in Rock Island, having exhausted the
tiold for that class of labor it employs
at Quincy, ana now sought an addi
tional sceno of operations.
Gen. V. A. Schmitt related from
personal knowledge the standing and
reliability of the iirm of Isaac
Nescm & Company, its scope and the
extent to which it had grown until it
stood at the head of Quincy indus
tries and on.: of the largest of its
kind in the country. Its field of
operations include 8i states and now
it was unable to supply half the
trade it had established. It sought
the location of a factory in a com
munity where it could get all the
female help it required, and once es
tablished here. Gen. Schmitt had no
hesitaiK-y in ottering the assurance
that 500 to 1,000 girls would be
employed provided they could
be secured. He spoke of the
advertisement the Noxall company
here would give Rock Island and the
advantage it would bring in the mat
ter of freight shipments as wall.
Enlarging the Committee.
Mr. Simon spoke of the necessity
of an active an energetic canvass, and
with the consent of the meeting and
suggestions from members, eniarjred
the committee to nuns adding
as new members the names W. C.
Maucker, II. D. Folsom, William
Roth. Eli Mosenfelder. T. J. Medill.
Jr.. and W. B. Ferguson.
Eli Mosenfelder spoke of his per
sonal acquaintance with the Noxall
people, whose goods were shirts and
ueflisree foods as well as overalls,
and who have built up a business
and reputation purely upon merit
and the quality of their products.
The factory was one that Rock Island
could ill afford to lose and the fac
tory having abundant opportunity
and inducements to go elsewhere, it
would be a serious detriment to the
city's reputation ts fail to take ad
vantage of the company s desire to
W. C. Maucker spoke earnestly of
the duty of Rock Island's citizens at
such a time as this and not only en
dorsed the enlargement of the com
mittee but proposed a systematic
and business like canvass of the
business men and people in general.
What 1 lloldiajr Ho k Inland Iliii-k.
William Jackson spoke commenda
tory of the undertaking, estimated
the benefit such a factory would be
to Rock Island, and particular! v to
ottr business men in the matter of
earnings which would be distributed
among our grocers, dry goods mer
chants, milliners, jewelers and banks
and which eventually would find its
way into all channels of trade. He
tho'ught everyone should contribute
to the success of this undertaking.
It was a project that should enlist
the endeavor and the
e aid of everyone!
in Rock Island lor every
reap a benefit from it. He fav-
ored the classification by the
committee of all our people
according to their means and the can
vass for subscriptions upon the
strength of such a classification. Mr.
Jacksoa. also spoke pointedly upon
some of the misfortunes which had
always tended to hold Rock Island
back. He said that Rock Island was
particularly interested in the roads not been connneu io oeu irom sica.

The masses of the people have made
a brave effort, and to them belongs
great credit in making Rock Island
what it is today, but he hoped that
no one would lag behind.
Further remarks were made bv Hen
ry Carse, T. J. Medill, Jr.. John Ohl
weiler and L. Simon, the latter stat
ing that the average wages paid by
the Nbxall factory were $ 6 a week,
wLile some made as high as $10 and
$12 and others only $4r according to
thuir adaptability, and: taking 500
girls at average wages we could very
readily figure the weekly wages paid
out by such a factory $3,000 a week,

"CUCKOO" COLLINS SHOT.
A Well-known Sprinter Probably Fatally
A New York dispatch to the Chi
cago Herald says:
"Cuckoo" Collins, one of the
sprinters employed in Barnum's cir
cus, was shot and mortallywounded
on Sunday afternoon on the grounds
of the Kearney Athletic club at
Kearney, N. J., after running a hun
dred yard race with a man named
Green and being defeated. The man
that shot him was his backer, P. J.
Dolan, who keeps a saloon at 94 Pa
cific street, Newark. The match
was made for $100 two weeks ago be
tween Dolan aud William Davies,
w ho keeps the Lodi hotel in Kearney.
Gree,n easily defeated Collins and
both retired to tho club house.
Dolan, white with rage, ran after
Collins, and, witnesses say, shot him
in the back as he was ascending the
steps of the club house. After the
shooting Dolan w'as arrested. "I
knew he was crooked," he said, "and
I warned him not to throw me or I
would shoot him. I had $150 bet on
him, and I knew lie could give Green
10 yards and beat him. Yes, I
threatened t- kill him if he dumped
me, but I didn't shoot him. I don't
know anything about the shooting.
I didn't do it."
Collins spent considerable time
here during the past season and had
participated in matches before the
Manhattan club. He married Miss
Anna CundilT of this city a number
of years ago. He was years old
and had quite a reputation in Eng
land and America as a sprinter.

tell with his special advantages of
figure, face and voice, she might
have had in view his adaptation to
such an impersonation as that of the
handsome chivalric soldier in the
melodrama of "The Face in the
Moonlight." The play which is by
Charles Osborne, is of a romantic,
historic order, and has to do with
the events in France from the time
when Napoleon escaped from Elba to
that'iu which he met ruin in Water
loo. The pivot of the plot turns on
the extraordinary resemblance be
tween the gallant young officer. Vic
tor Ambrose, and the murderer,
Jacques Ferrand. The newly wed
ded wife of the former, Lucille
Munier. is possessed with a feeling of
horror for the husband that the once
loved, as on account of the resem
blance the odium of the murder
committed bv Ferrand falls
on him. The subsequent confession
and suicide of the real murderer un
ravels the difficulty and gives a feli
citous ending. Mr. Mantell imper
sonates both characters, and his wide
rauge of dramatic capacity is seen in
the rapid transitition between
two parts that stand a opposite
poles of human nature. The colors
of the viUian are laid on with bold
and unsparing though not inartistic
hand; but it is admitted that Mr.
Mantell is at his best when tilling
the role of Victor Ambrose, in which
he has the aid of natural equipment
not less than histronic art. Such an
imbodiment is calculated to prove
that melodrama has a permanent
mission and its adequate presenta
tion a charm which those of the
more classic school cannot displace.
Difficult and exacting on ine
"ies as are the enactment of
roles. Mr. Mantell sustained hi
distinctive skill and unwavering fer
vor to the end. The great drama
