On an average of twice a season for the past dozen or more years, The Ar gus has found it its duty to call atten tion to the lack of a sufficient number of tenement house of moderate rental to accommodate the rapidly increasing population. "While the record of build ing improvements published in The Argus at the close of each year has shown that these suggestions have not been "unheeded, yet the city has ex panded and extended so much more steadily than has the march of build ing improvement with all that has been done, that each springtime has found the demand for houses greater than the supply. This is as usual the ex perience this year. The statement may be safely ven tured that today not less than one hun dred medium priced houses, that would rent from say $12 to $18 per month would find ready takers. Further than this a number of even higher rated tenements would not go begging. Flat AImo dcA. What is true in the matter of houses. would apply with equal emphasis to the flat question. Flat buildings in all sections of the city would undoubtedly prove profitable investments. The capitalist who wants to realize quickly on his investment has only to put up a number of tenement houses or flat buildings, and help the town as well as himself. GOES TO THE PENITENTIARY William T. McDonald Sentenced to Two and One-Half Years. William T. McDonald, who entered a plea of guilty to a charge of perjury was sentenced to the Fort Madison penitentiary, Iowa, for 2 years and six months at hard labor, this morning by- Judge Barker, of Davenport. In mak ing his statement, McDonald said that he had been drinking in Chicago, and was influenced to sign the affidavit which was presented as an argument for a rehearing of the Huggard case against the Glucose company. McDon aid will be taken to Fort Madison this evening. YOU CAN Now Buy at My Grocery Store HAY AND STRAW. CORN AND OATS. WHEAT AND SCREENING. CHOPPED FEED. CRACKED CORN. CORN MEAL. BRAN.
