felt the linancial closeness from
which the country is just emorginr,
but it may be said with infinite" sat
isfaction that m commercial center
in the country lias stood the test of
soundness with any better results
than has Rock Island. While every
branch of trade, and individuals gen
erally have fel the effects ofthe
tightness in monetary affairs, the
city as a whole, has come out of the
unusual conditions in good shape.
There has been nothiti"; to show that

The Rock Island stove works resumed
the past week with full force and full
time. The Rook Island plow works
will shortly do likewise it is believed,
though the management is still non
committal on that point, while others
are preparing to follow suit.

The local banks have not suffered
in the least degree. They are all as

The Improvement AfiHot'iatton.
The executive committee of the
Citizens' Improvement association
held a meeting yesterday afternoon
at 4 o'clock at the office of Jackson
& Hurst. Those present were,
Messrs. Jackson, Paul, Crampton,
and Secretary Day". It was decided
that the association should be in
corporated as a corporation not for
pecuniary prolit, so as to give the
association a legal status with the
right to hold property and trasact
business for the good of the commu
nity. William Jackson accepted the
task of framing a suitable constitu
tion, by-laws and articles of incor
poration. It was decided to try and
infuse new life into the association,
and several matters were talked over
that would benefit the city, among
them being the idea of making a
public park out of some of the Col
umbian grounds. It was the idea of
all present that the association go
ahead with renewed vigor, and a
special meeting be called soon to act
on several important matters.
TRACK AND TRAIN.
The Jackson Sentinel of Maquoketa
says: "A historical old carriage has
been doing duty as a hack during the
past week between the city and the
fair grounds. It is a 3-seated rig
with broad seats, and will comforta
bly carry nine ordinary persons. It
is said to have been expressly built
for Col. Davenport and family some
50 years ago and cost at that time
$1,000. When new it was undoubt
edly the finest turn-out in the tri
cities, as the trimmings, upholster
ing and materials are of the very best
qualities, and it is in very good con
dition yet. It is owned l y the Court
l'clul Fair Ground Trains.
Sept. 10 to 14 inclusive, the C, R.
I. & I', railway will run a special
train to the Davenport fair grounds,
leaving the Rock Island depot at 1:45
p. m. daily. Returning, the last
train from the grounds will run
through to Hock Island.
Koek Island and the Southwestern
Rates-Other Railroad Xfw.
Shippers and manufacturers have
been watching with a great deal of
attention the effort of the Rock Isl
and road to hold the St. Louis rates,
on manufactured products, between
the tri-cities and Texas and south
western points. The matter has all
been settled in regard thereto; the
St. Louis Globe-Democrat says that
the Missouri Pacilic, as intimated in
the dispatches from the Southwestern
Traffic conference at Chicago, reced
ed from its position on the Iowa
Texas freight rate situation and con
sented, with the other St. Louis
southwestern lines to an extension of
the St. Louis rate basis on Texas
traffic to Rock Island, Moline and
Davenport. The Rock Island thus
gains its point and will now
have no objection to joining
the Southwestern Traffic associa
tion. If the St. Iiuis lines had re
fused to make this concession to the
Rock Island it might have resulted in
utter demoralization of rates during
the fall season in the southwest, and
a rate war in a time of general de
pression is too expensive a luxury to
be borne. Measures for reorgoniza
tion of the Southwestern association
with the Rick Island on the 'inside"
will now be perfected, and a chair
man will be selected probably before
the adjournment of the conference.
Of course all this trouble was brought
about by the extension of the Rock
Island to Fort Worth. Texas, and its
joint tariff arrangement with the Tex
as & Pacilic. St. Louis men naturally
objected to the extension of the St.
Louis basis of rates any further
northward than Fort Madison, and a
meeting was held at the Mercantile
club to giye expression to their views
on the subject. The president
of the traffic commission was
in a delicate position, for his
firm is interested in agricul
tural implement works at Moline,
ana as a shipper lie could not con
sistently oppose the St. Louis basis
of rates being applied from Moline
The traffic commission, did all that
could be done under the circum
stances to support the St. Louis
lines in efforts for protection of St.
Louis interests, and those lines have
in the emi aooptea the only course
open for the protection of their own

For 32 years Thomas Wheelan has

Ever since Jennie Chandler and
Cal Harson attempted to wreck trains
east of Moline. some apprehension on
the part of ladies has been felt as to
traveling at night. We now hear
that attempts were made some time
ago near Geneseo. We have also
heard of open switches, so that now
the Rock Island has issued orders'
that watchmen be employed to go
over each section especially they
arc to go over them just before pas
senger trains are due.
According to the report of the
financial committee of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Firemen, which
has just been completed, the order
had a membership on August 1 of
