The Number of Children Horn In the

ures. In conformity with his annual cus
tom Superintendent of Schools S. S.
Kemble has prepared a statement of
the nationality of the pupils in the
Hock Island public schools. The ex
hibit is for the school year ending in
June of the present year and shows
the number born in tho United States
to be 2,341; in foreign countries 176,
making a total of 2,517, the total en
rollment being 2,G22.

A further study of these figures
will show that s per cent, of the

advantages ottered by the public

The nationalities of Norway. Den
mark. Wales, France. Hussia. Hei
ght m, Persia and Holland, show no
per cent of representation in the
Hock Island High school. A fact of
peculiar interest developed by these
figures, is that while the pupils of
Austrian parentage show the highest
percentage of representation in the
High school, there was but one pu
pil of such-lineage attending, and the
representation made by the so-called
patriotic order that the Irish are
largely sent to parochial schools, is
confronted by figures showing
that after all. a larger per cent of the
children of Irish parentage attending
the public schools, go to the High
than any other nation, not excepting
the children of Amercan parents.
How t lie Fund in Apportioned.
The AiMH shad not intended to en
ter into a detailed statement in cor
rection of the communication which
appeareil in the I'nion the other
morning over the signature of "X.
V. Z." the entire argument on the
part of the correspondent reflecting
his ignorance of the subject with
which he attempted to deal, but one
of his declarations was so glaringly
inaccurate that one or two have sug
gested that a correction was due the
public' "X. Y. 'A." among other non
sensical assertions states that the
apportionment of -the public school
fund to Hock Island falls short 1.imi
by reason of about l,oon children at
tending the parochial . schools, for
which the school fund receives 1 a
head. In contradiction of this silly
idea, it should be said that the ap
portionment is based on the school
census, which must enumerate every
child in the city under 21 years of
age. without regard to sex, race or
color- or- whether it attends the
public? tr parochial school, or wheth
er it attends school at all. Further
more, the allowance is made on a
basis of 50 cents each, and if there
tire I.'mm) pupils in the parochial
schools of Hock Island, the Hock Isl
and school district receives the bene
fit of $."l over anjl above what it i

General Passenger Agent Eustis,
of the C, H. & Q.r has issued a circu
lar to prospective visitors to the
World's fair, in which they are urged
to make the journey now in
stead of waiting till August
or September, when there will
be such a throng going to
the exposition that much discomfort
and inconvenience will result. The
following is the text: "The traffic to
the World's fair for the past three
weeks has been very large, lutt re
ports indicate that many who might
go now, are needlessly postponing
the trip, forgetting that transportation-
facilities are limited. Unless
some who say, 'We'll go in August
or September' can be induced to go
now while they can be carried satis
factorily, all will suffer the discom
forts and delays usual under such
circumstances, and perhaps many
will be unable to get there aj all, for
lack of transportation facilities. Our
patrons who might make the trip
now should le urged to do so; it is
important to us, to them, and to
their neighbors who cannot go until
lafer. We have efficiently trans
ported all passengers, but shall be
tinable to carry all who seem to be
depending upon our taking them in
he fall. The fair is now complete,
ami accommodations in Chicago arc
ample and charges reasonable."

Tin- grand lodge of the Brother
hood ofHailroad Trainmen is receiv

for t he location of the headijuarters
of the order. It is proposed to erect
a building to cost from $75,000 to
$1 00.100. at which all national con
ventions will thereafter be held.
Along with the location of this build-'
ing will go the official publishing
house of the order, employing about
50 persons. There is 110 reason why
Hock Island should not try and win
the. building. Undoubtedly there
will le a great many inducements of

nothing is won without an effort and
this city's chances ought to lie as
'ood as any.
SITUATION OF THE STRIKE,
No New development In the Carpenters'
There has been but little change, in
the situation of the locked-out car
penters. The Contracting Carpen
ters' association still holds meetings
as do the men at their headquarters
in the Hillier block, but no advances
have lately been made be either. The
contractors are still confident that
they will be able to get along all
right and claim to have a sufficient
number of men to get along pretty
well. On the other hand the men are
very sanguine of ultimate success as
they still insist they are asking noth
ing unreasonable. About 25 or 30
men are at work in different, parts of
the city, tin; most of them being in
the employ of Collins ltros. It is
claimed by some of the firms that a
good many of these are ones who
have given up the union and gone to
work, while the carpenters contend
that only live at the most have done
Trying to Fill the I'laces.
A few carpenters have been
brought in from other cities, the con
tracting firms having advertised for
men in several neighboring places.
One of the members of a local llrm
had an interesting time while in Chi
cago a few days ago on such a mis
sion. A large number who have
agreed to work have either been in
duced to join the union or go back
where they came from. In the mean
time building operations are compar
atively at a standstill. As stated be
fore, a few men are at work here, and
these, besides those of Contractors
Blotter and Spilgor. whose men re
turned to work on account of the
formers' withdrawal from the con
tractors" association, but it is not at
all in proportion to the building op
erations in progress at the time of
the trouble. Not only has it affected
the carpenters themselves, but the
work of the painters, bricklayers,
plasterers, etc., is all delayiwJ and
held back so that the difficult y is fast
becoming a serious, question to the
community in general.

New York Tribure.
Two months ago if a man wanted
a filter he would probablybuy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
Citv (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are, good. The objection to the lirst
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
Today, in the so-called "Hapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both Iilters are combined.
I have the "Hapid," and will lie glad
