SPLE5DH) PBOSPECTS PRESETTED. Option LooKingT to m Big BnUWH Block and Other laJleaMona of ImpronaHl nirett Mora Property Chasers Hud. The real estate market, in Rock Island has never been as active as it is this sean. Property is moving in all directions, and all dealers and agents report the prospects as the most promising in me city s nistory for new buildings and solid improve ment. Negotiations are pending in a number cf important deals and all with fair prospects of success. One in particular which has been goiug on for some weeks, will, if consum mated, mean the erection of the largest an-1 handsomest business block in the three cities. While there is vet much to accomplish to insure the ends desired, and the transaction in all that enters into it is bv no means completed, options have been secured., and in some in stances transfers all but made on a number of adjoining pieces of prop ertv, all contributing to the same purpose in view, and the carrving out of the enterprise is now contin gent upon the arranging of certain details. Hearing 00 Bmlnen. As saiii, the plans are in a measure yet in a crude state, and a hitch in the proceedings might in volve the abandonment of the entire project, yet the outlook is favorable and the consequence will be a marked expansion of our business district, as well as business enterprises. Further than this, if the negotia tions, in which some of our best real estate men have taken part, are suc cessful, other transfers will rapidly follow in all probabuitv, and in each instance a new business block will follow. These are all but the nat ural consequence of the erection of public buildings in nock Island, in the new court house and postoflice buildings. It is the same old rule repeating itself. What has been true of other places is to be so of Rock Island. Uavenpert furnished an ex ample, and the history of other places embarking in the construction of great buildings is to be true of Kock Island. here the proper ex ample is set, others are sure to fol low. 1 male enterprises loiiow in the wake of public improvement. More Transfers. Two important transfers of prop erty were consummated today through the agency of Reidy Bros1., B. Berkenfeld selling the brick building on Twentieth street between Third anil Fourth avenues to Chicago parties for $5,500. The property is purchased as an investment and will continue to be occupied by H Schroeiler under lease. The rest dence property of Robert Williams on Seventh avenue between Tenth and Eleventh streets was sold by Reidy Bros, to James Park for $1,500. PLEASANT MEMORIES. Acknowlrrigmant of the Courtesies Ex tended the Kereot Bankers Convention. Phil Mitchell, chairman of the local committee on entertainment of the Bankers' convention of the state of Illinois, which met in Rock Island a few weeks ago, is in receipt of the following letter from ex-President K S. Drover, of the association: Ciik Aso, III., July 3. 1895 My Dear Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell: The Bankers' convention held at your city is a thing of the past, but the reminiscences of the glorious days spent in the beautiful ciues of Rock Island and Moline will remain fresh forever in the memory of those who bad the good fortune to participate. Al! bankers present and their ladies win never forget tne most nearly welcome accorded to all of us, and although I am almost afraid to tax the generosity of your citizens some' what to the extreme, still I cannot help suggesting to all who .think of holding conventions, to select nock Island and Moline as a meeting place With a verv vivid recollection I re. member the hours passed at Black Hawk Tower, a recollection made all the more memorable by the royal hacmiet extended to -our guests and I am extremely thankful for the honor conferred upon me in having been elected toast-master lor the evening. Today, even. I sec before me the"beautiful hall splendidly dec orated, and a sight I shall never for get, adorned by the presence of so many beautiful ladies of Rock Island and Moline, who vied with one an other to make their guests feel at home. And they did suacecd to such a decree that we all felt sorry when the time came t part. Uratltude Expressed. 'I embrace this opportunity to thank aain a l the ladies-or the re ception committee for their kindness anil true hospitality, and would ask of you, Mr. Mitchell, to carry the thanks of vour ex-president to all the gettlemen of the committee, and also to the members of the press for the work done by them to make the convention, what it really was, an unqualified success in every respect. I have my honest doubts whether any other city in our state can cope successfully with the hospitality and goo.l fellowship with which we were entertained by the citizens of Rock I!and and Moline. All I can say i?. we arrived as angers, but when the parting hoar ne we bid farewell a friends. 'I remain very gratefully yours. E. S. Dbki eb." . THE DENVER SPECIAL. The Handsome Rock Island Train Passes Thronga Last ETealnr. The. handsome special train of the Rock Island for the national educa tional convention at Denver passed mrougn last evening at 5 o'clock.

Xoa-narrested Spinach Will be WaRed by the Sabbath Breeie A Systematic Par. pose to Enforce the Law, Which Is Mow la Effect. The barber shoos of Rock Island will close tomorrow under the new law of the state which became opera tive July 1. As far as the tonsorial adepts of Rock Island are concerned. there is a practically unanimous pur pose to aoiae by the law, and not only to respect it, but to compel uueuieuce to it on me part 01 mose of the craft who may be disposed to disregard it. The majority of bar bers nave determined to carry out the enactment fiom the start, and to this end propose a systematic plan ot insuring obedience to the mandate as to all. Consequently an inspect ing committee will be abroad, and the barber who opens h.is shop will be caught and made an example of. Mast be Shared Today. Consequently the individual who relies upon the barbers' art to pro mote facial adornment had better at tend te this duty today. Unless he is desirous of emulating Pfeffer or Tom Carter and cultivating an un tamed crop of unbecoming foliage for the Sabbath breezes to tamper witn, ne must hie nimseu to his fa vorite artist of hirsute decoration. The Penalty The penalty is large enough to in sure the practical inforccmeut of the law if the barbers are disposed to carrv out their purpose, as the line for violation is $50 for the first of fense and from that to t-'OO for sub subsequent convictions. FLIGHT OF FOUR FAKIRS. Qaartet of Sasptclout-Looains; Characters Vast at the Bight of an Officer. Policeman Moody was afforded an opportunity to test his sprinting proclivities last night, when be sue ceeded in landing one of a party of sleek and suspicions-iookiug individ uals who set their coat tail flapping at the blue coats' appearance. The 'ellows arrived from the east in a side doonsleeper. They emerged from the darkness of the Rock Island yar lsunler the rav of the electric ligit. Heavy footsteps attracted thair attention. It was the police man, and away they new in the di rection of the outskirts. Moody un doubtedly would not have taken any particular notice of the fellows but for their fright, and he started after them, and caught one. He was de livered at headquarters. The other three were apprehended in South Rock Island this morning. Asked to explain themselves, the fellows thought they had made a feolish break in running away from the oihcer, as they bad com mitted no offense. One of them carried a satchel and the others each a bundle. They carried outfits for mending dishes etc., and gave the chief a strong talk regarding their misfortune in being compelled to resort to such a wav of making 'a livelihood. They had seen better days and were in search of work Finding no crooks' tools in their pos session. Chief Ktzcl gave them in structions to decamp. There is no question but that the fellows are a band of crooks, probably desired persons in another community, or it is doubtless if they would have sought to elude the oluccrs' Uetec tion, their appearance a'.ono causiug suspicion. Pointers. The refrigerator at the residence W. S. Fullmer was minus its con tec ts this morning, some prowler having indulged in a feast during the night. John Owen admitted his guilt of swiping the tomatoes from Hansgens' grocery to Magistrate Schroeder yey- tcruay aiternoun, and be turned him over to the grand jury for further investigation under f 110 bonds.
