The Akgts hopes the glass work
ers' committee will not cease its en
ergies in behalf of the project looking
to the establishment of a glass facto
ry in Rock Island succeeding the in
dustry which the United Class com
pany has seen lit to abandon here for
one season at least. Whatever may
be the future intention of the compa
ny, it is a natural presumption that
no intention . is had resuming in
Rock Island for a time at least. or the
men would not have been notified
that thev niiHit look elsewhere for
work next year. Of course these
men skilled workmen, all could
not be expeeted to waste an entire
season in Rock Island waiting ..the
company's pleasure as to another sea
son, and unless some tangible plan is
developed by which the factory may
lie purchased and reestablished on an
independent basis, they will go else
where and look fur work. Priven to
sueh an alternative Rock Island
would lose S.I families.
What Will be Done?
What will our business men do
about it? That remains to be seen.
The merchants are surely the most
directly interested in the outcome of
the preent movement. The glas
workers committee representing the
men. all of whom are anxious to re
main in Rock NIand where they have
secured homes and friends, has been
untiring in itselTurts to bring about
some plan by which the factory may be
iK-rmittcd to continue here. A tair
price has been plaeed on the factory
by the company now controlling
while one enterprising eiti.eu has
proffered a desirable site for a new
factory -.i.oul 1 one be c.-iablihed. A
company with moderate capital could
secure the abandoned factory and
carry on the business with profitable
results. Tho committee has demon

ness nun lime signiliod their desin
to become interested in sueh a cor

More Saloon Injunc tion.
Temporary injunctions were
granted by" Judge Waterman, at
Davenport, yesterday in the Le Claire
liquor cases against Saloonkeepers
Sweeney, Bailey, Shipley, Rider,
Davenport and Bissick. One of the
interesting bits of testimony was of
fered by Rev. Howe, to the effect
that he had in his grip samples of
whisky, which he had purchased
in nearly all of the saloons
against which action was brought.
Another sensational episode was
furnished when Constable Bagley, of
Le Claire, was in the witness chair.
Mr. Bagley, testified, under Mr. Har
vey's questioning, to having drunk
beer in Davenport's saloon, and hav
ing seen other persons drinking
there. He was then turned over to
Lawyer Hubbell for cross question
ing, "and about the tirst question that
the witness was asked was, if he had
not demanded and received "hush
money" from Davenport as the price
of his silence in the actions pending
a,rainst the saloon keepers. After
considering for a full naif min
ute Mr. Bagley refused to answer the
question. 'An altercation ensued that
waked up Rev. Harvey, who asked
to have the question repeated, ami
then objected to it as irrelevant ami
immaterial. The court ruled the
question to be all right, and it was
again put. The witness appealed to
the -court to know whether he had to
answer a question that would tender
to incriminate himself, and was in
formed that if the answer would tend
to'-eriminate him he might refuse to
answer a"d he refused.

It is always delicate and embar

so often misundeijt pod. The chance
is taken, however, to drop a few sug

It is perfectly projier ami safe for
young ladies to attend the fair with

girls do so. Many precautions have
been taken by the authorities.
Guards and jruides are at one's call
constantly- The circus crowd is not
here to the extent that the roughs
gather in groups. Profanity is not
heard; intoxication is never seen;
and good order is maintained.
It will not be found to profit or
pleasure'of individuals to come in
parties. Two may be company, more
will be an irritation. This refers to
circulating about the grounds. It is
most commendable for families and
friends to travel together, to top at
hotels, to dine and pass evenings;
but all this is only a fragment id the
real object. Often it will happen
that husband or wife is happier with
