TerniH That Have Ile'u Mailc. In regard to the concession granted the National Neck Yoke company, it was agreed that, in consideration ol the permanent location of the con t cm plated new factory of said company in the city of Rock Lland, entailing an investment in buildings of from $12, Omi to $18,00(1, the board of control ol the Industrial commission recommend the purchase of a suitable site to be do nated to said company, title lo which is to be held ineserow by the Centra! Trust & Savings bank, trustee, until the buildings and improvements are completed, according to the plans sub mitted, and free from encumbrances The location chosen is on the coiner of Sixth avenue and First street and contains 2.515 acres. In due time a committee, composed of Messrs. l.aikln, SehalTer and Dart, was appointed to examine the accounts: of the company and ascertain if the 'terms of the agreement had been ful- feeding by more thi"i $5.0no the max inuim s,i!)U!a,ctj in . contract The plant consists of two buildings a factory 100x2X foot and a warehouse o2x250 feet.

The number w ho have withheld it he fulfillment of their obligations are, happily, very few. This almost unani mous response to the call for the first j installment of 20 per cent of the sub- scriptions is cause tor sincere con ' g rat illations. 11 1 The two great obstacles to our in dustrial progress are that but one rail- rc;uj jias direct across to the Manufac- . Hirers addition and the lack of build ings adapted to the needs of small fac tories. A solution of the first problem, which has vexed our growth for 20 years, is one of the promises of the near future. Yours very truly, MAYER LEVI, Secy.

Committee o' Illinois House Passes Through City. MAKE CALL AT WATERTOWK Clmiriiian Adkins Wui'in in Praise of the Manner in Which Local Institution Is Managed. The house committee of the state legislature on charitable institutions was in this city today after sending the morning looking over the Water town hospital. Nine of the 13 members of the committee were here, and they were accompanied by their wives, and in some cases their daughters, so that the entire junketing party numbered over 30. Hon. II. L. Wheelan, Mayor George W. McCaskrin and J. G. Hun limn met the party at the Milwaukee depot and escorted them on a sight seeing trip through this city and to Rock Island arsenal. The trip was made in a special trolley car. The committeemen present were Chairman Adkins, and Representatives Troyer Naylor, McCollum. Finley, Dolin, Well born, llardell, and Rigney. Kind Iilt'iil CiinillliotiN. Chairman Adkins stated to an Argus representative that t!e- committee found that almost ideal conditions ex isted in the hospital at Watertown, and that in his opinion it is one of the bos conducted institutions'- in the state. What struck him most forcibly, he said, was the fact thati there was so little demons! ration among the patients classed as the violent ones, and that a greater degree of freedom seems to exist throughout the institution than in most of its kind. The committee has visited most of the charitable in Simmons in tne state, and the praise accorded the Watertown hospital -was barked up by real knowledge of ex isting conditions and speaks well for the work of Dr. Taylor, the superin tendent. The party spent but a short time iu leek Island, arriving at 12:o0 and de parting again at 1:30 for Peoria.

'ARTICIPATING IN POLITICS lu ce Members of tho City Council I A fleeted if Its Force Is 1m- ' mediate. Colonel F. E. Ilobbs, command- nt at Rock Island arsenal, in re- ponsc to an inquiry made about two eeks ago, has received a new inter relation of the war department or ter relating to the political activit f employes of the department. Thi rder prohibits employes from engag ng- iu politics. Colonel Ilobbs made th-. iniuiry with a view to dcterminin; vhether the order-was intended t orbid employes being candidates fo Uice. The interpretation receive' s to the effect that no employe ma. lecoine a candidate for any politic-p jllice. The order is of considerabl nterest in the three cities, and par icularly in Hock Island, where fo mine years arsenal employes havi lcld seats in the city council as rci esentatives of different wards, an .t vthe present time there are thre ildermen who are employed at tin arsenal. Mny Serve Tonim. One of these, Frank Lawler of thi Sixth ward, was elected a year ago The other two. Alderman W. 1) Jochran or the Fifth ward and Al lerman Charles Borst of the Scventl ivard, were elected this spring Whether the order would make i lecessary for the aldermen clecte iince it was posted to resign eithc their political position or their place: it the arsenal is not known. Coloe lobbs informed The Argus toda I hat if tlie matter is presented to bin he will take the matter up with tin 'department. "I do not know wheth T the intention is to forbid tho hold ing of poliical oflices already ac(uir- 'd or not. The matter has not come ip," said Colonel Ilobbs. Men DM MlH'll IIitc. If this was the intention of the cU iiartinent, it would be necessary foi :he three Rock Island aldermen tc either give up their employmet ot the. arsenal or to resign their seats in the council. It is not likely, how ver, that such a rule would be en t'orced, even though employes in I he uture would be prevented from be ing candidates for office. If th hree aldermen should be forced ti esign their seats in the council, It .vould cost the city something like ,000 to hold special elections tc ill the vacancies. The order has aroused a general .1 rotes t from the employes and from jitizens in general. While it does not deprive the employe of the right to vote at either general or primary elections, it deprives them of the right to hold party or public offices and thus takes away some 01 tne verj' important privileges of citizenship. FINAL PAPERS FOR PARK DEAL SIGNED Substantial First Payment Mmle by Mayor anil City Clerk $2,000 Now Due Yearly.

The Most Common Cause of Suffering Rheumatism causes more pain and suffering than any other disease, for the reason that it is the most common of all ills, and it is certainly gratifying lo sufferers to know that Chamber lain's Liniment will afford relief, and make rest and sleep possible. In many cases the relief from pain, which is at first temporary, has become perma nent, while in old people subject to chronic rheumatism, often brought on by dampness or changes in the weath er, a permanent cure cannot be ex pected; the relief from pain which this liniment affords is alone worth many times its cost. 25 and 50 cent sizos for sale by all druggists.
