THE NOXALL EFFORT.

The committee on subscriptions in

Simon, John Ohlweiler, William
Koth, W. B. Fergeson. E. H. Guver,
W. C. Maucker, T. J. Medill. Jr., and
Eli Mosenfelder, has issued its circu
lar appeal to citizens individually
upon the basis of .the classification
previously agreed upon by the com
mittee. After appealing for the aid
stipulated, the circular says:
Considering the great benefit de
rived from the location of this large
enterprise the amount is but a small
one and .will repay ten-fold in the
space of a few years, for the Noxall

they were urgently invited to come
here bv a number of our citizens who
are well acquainted with the lirm s
reputation. They will employ at the
outset 550 young women who are at
present unemployed and dependent
upon tneir relatives, ami ineir wages
will be so much added to the produc
tive wealth of Kock Island. The
number will be increased from time
to time, and a year from the begin
ning the number of hands employed
is expected to reach 1.000. The
earnings range from $3 to $12 a week,
according to the degree of skill at
tained by each operator, and the av
erage is about $0. With an average
number of employes the first year of
500, to make a low estimate, the an
nual amount disbursed will be about
$150,000. This money will come
from elsewhere to be distributed in
What It Mean.
It means $150,000 more than
at present expended among our
merchants for the necessaries and
comforts of life, and among
our holders of real estate and build

property values, a larger and more
prosperous population and increased
activity in all the branches of trade,
and the drawing here of other indus
tries. With the successful issue of
this undertaking, this or similar
committees will be greatly encour
aged to put forth their best efforts in
securing other industries, while the
failure of the project would disheart

The discussion of the situation that
followed the election made it evident
that while future aeiion is not defi

question as to the intention to goon
with the enterprise. Secretary Whit
comb thinks, however, that the road
will not cut any rates in competition
for the World's" Fair traffic.
After the adjournment of the stock

yards last night and given lodging at
the police station.
Police Officer William Glass has
resigned, ami tomorrow morning
leaves for Chicago to join the extra
force .ii duty in coliseti uelice of the
Columbian World's fair.
A stranger with both legs off and
only one arm was found in a beastly
state of intoxication amongthe tracks
in the C K. 1. & P. yards last night.
The patrol wagon was called and he
was taken in. but no record at the
police station shows the arrival of
l ho man there. What was .lone with
him remains a mystery.
A woman was detected in the act
of carrying off about $4' of dry
goods at McCabe Bros", late yester
day afternoon. She had selected the
goods from different departments
and hail wrapped them up in the
ladies" dressing room, being after
ward detected by the floor walker.
She got out of the store, but a de
scription of her was given the police,
who arrested Mrs. William Weaver
at her home on Fourth avenue be
tween Tenth and Eleventh stieets.
She was kept at police headquarters
over night, and will have a hearing

A Strong Tw in. City Train.
The professional ball players of
Rock Island and Moline have organ
ized an independent team to play
with similar teams from surrounding
towns. The team is composed of the
following- . Sage and Zeis change
catcher and right field; Cunningham,
p: Speck. 1 b: Scherrcr. 2 b; Kelly.

Wyiin. e f. They go to Peoria for
games Saturday and Sunday and lat
er will probably visit other neighbor
ing cities. Similar clubs have been
organized at Pckin, Lincoln. Canton,
Iowa City and other places, and the
result may be some good home games.
The directors of the local association
have called a meeting for tonight, at
which time the matter of taking up
the independent .club will be dis
cussed. As there is more base ball
interest growing daily, it is thought
that it may lead to the reorganization
of the two-eved league.

odd pieces I mean
