A NEW TEI-CITY CORPORATION.
To Purclmw the tian and Hrunh Elertrlc
I'lants In Rock Inland, Kreot Hlc Station
anil u Into ItnineKS for All There Is In
It The Main Office to be Here.
A new corporation which promises
touring to the tri-cities the benefits
of outside capital has been com
pleted in the organization of the Tri
City Power and Light company.
The business association thus formed
under the laws of Illinois, starts with
a capital stock of $31)0,01)0, ami its
consummation is the outcome of the
energetic work to which R. II. Mae
Mullan, local manager of the Brush
company, has been devoting himself
since coming to Rock Island to as
sume charge of his company's inter,
ests here. It will be remembered
that soon after assuming control of
the plant of the Rock Inland founty
Brush Electric Light company on the
purchase by the parent company of
Cleveland, Mr. MacMullan bought the
Rock Island (!as works and consoli
dated the two illuminating enter
prises. The joint corporations then
purchased of the Riley estate
the lot 210l.r)0 feet at the corner of
Seventeenth street and First ave
nue, on which it is planned to
erect a handsome commodious tire
proof power plant, from which it is
proposed event ually to furnish the
company's patrons in the three cities
with light and powcr.in any quanti
ty they may deire. For the present
the t"o sides of the river will le con
ducted separately. The new tri
city co.v.pany purchases the property
franchises, etc.. of the Brush com
pany in Rock Island, together, of
course, with its wires leading to Mo
Iine. which gives it many desirable
advantage and a promising outlook
in Rock Island and Moline to start
with, which with the property of the
lavenport l'ower and Light company
gives it a good foothold in Daven
port. The company will endeavor to ex
tend the field of operations to a point
where its consumption of gas and
electric light will warrant a reduc
tion all around to the consumer, and
thus ilk another way will the poople
of the three cities reap the benefit of
the investments of outside capital.
The "onip:itinn of the Company.
The company is composed of men
of experience in electrical matters,
who have recognized the merits of
this locality as a promising field for
investment", and they have come here
backed bv their own money. For
president, the company has B. E.
Sunnv, of Chicago, western manager
of the Edison General Electric com

THEY FEEL HOPEFUL.
Street Railway Owners View Their Prop
erty and Pass Judgment.
President D. II. Louderback, Vice
President J. J. Mitchell and Messrs.
Clarence Buckingham and J. F. Gill
ette, of the Davenport & Rock Island
Railway company, spent Saturday
evening and yesterday in the tri
cities inspecting their property, and
wound up at the Tower, where they
spent the latter part of yesterday
afternoon and last evening. They
all expressed themselves as much
pleased with the condition and ap
pearance of the tri-city electric sys
tem and the improvements in the
Tower property. Mr. Mitchell spoke
for the directors when he said:
While we have earned nothing from
our investment here, so far, in fact
the system has been a constant drain
on us up to date, we have hopes for
its future. And mind you we don't
mean to grumble when we say that
paving has come rather hard with
us in all the three cities. We don't
object to paving, and there is no
douot that in some parts of our
system it has proven a blessing in
disguise, but it has come too rapidly.
Had not so much been undertaken at
once, we could have stood it better,
but it has come upon us so rapidly
as to prevent anything like a profit
and the consequence is that our
already overtaxed stockholders have
been met with demands for further
expenditures instead of dividends.
Now all our most important lines
have been paved, and some that are
not so productive have been likewise
improved. So far we have uttered
no complaint, and all we say now is
give us a chance to catch our
breath so that we can make
something of a showing to
our stockholders, and then you can
go ahead with your pavement and
von will hear no objection from us.
We have some heavy obligations to
meet the first of the month. A few
of us will be obliged to provide for
thee. This done it will take all we
can make this summer to see us
through another year, without a cent
of profit, but we feel encouraged at
what we have seen here. We have
been treated nicely as a corporation,
the svstcm seems for the most part
to be increasing in patronage, and
we are exceedingly gratified to see
how all three cities are growing.
Surely nothing will do us more good
than a growing populaiion."'
It may be added that there was
considerable more importance at
tached to the visit of the Chicago

has completed all arrangements for
takin"- possession of the room now-
occupied by the Harper house bil

mer barber shop and bath rooms, for
with. the leases having all been
signed. The plans are in the hands
of Architect Stauduhar and con
template the conversion of the rooms
secured into a modern sanitarium
with all the latent scientific appli
ances and adjuncts, the plan being
to make provision in addition to con
sultation offices, for extra rooms for
treatment by massage, electricity
and also arrangements for medical
baths. The baths will include elec
tric, electrothermal, hot air and
Turkish, with a complete equipment
and skillful attendants. The appli
ances for the examination and treat
ment of patients will be in all re
spects equal to the best.
The physicians who have thus asso-
ciatedithemselves will be able to give
patients the benefit not only of their
combined knowledge, experience, and
skill but of the valuable scientuie
adjuncts to be provided. The part

viding this sanitarium. It is expected
to have it in operation by Aug. 1.

Little Interest Taken in the Content for
i ' School IHrertor.
Tomorrow occurs the annual elec
tion for two members of the school
board, the retiring members being
Dr. C. Bernhardi and D. J. Sears.
Both have positively and emphatic
ally declined to run again, and not
withstanding the pressure brought
to bear on Dr. Bernhardi in particu
lar, he has firmly declined to be con
sidered a candidate under any cir
cumstances. There is probably less interest sur
rounding the election than has been
shown for some years. There have
been but two formal announcements
of candidates made and they have
been named by the' American
Protective association. It is un
questionably due to the acrimony
tiiat this organization has unreason
ably thrown into the school elections
in recent years in its determination:
to defeat citizens who had made
capable school directors and who
! were opposed merely because they'
.were not members of the order, that
; has caused public interest in the elec
tions to lag and ha therefore brought
about a state of affairs greatly to be
deplored. In fact the school elect ion

The hard coal stoves uiile in one
way very comfortable, keepinsr a room
at an even temperature all the time
are, in ignorant hands, a sourc? of
serious danger. If the drafts are not
properly turned, the carbonic acid and
sulphurous fumes may pour into the
room, and in a sleeping- room may
smother the sleepers before they are
aware of their danjrer. Three per
cent of carbonic acid jras in the air of
a room is fatal to animal life, and a
larfre-sized base-burner will not take
lonfj to supply this percentage in a
close room. Such stoves should al
ways be carefully watched and never
handled save by experienced persons.
