The proposition to be voted iion
in connection with the city election
to he held April 4 looking to a spec ial
2-milI tax for the purpose of a c'ty
hospital, had--its origin, it may le
said, with Jthe Ladies' Industrial Ke
lief society. In its work of charity
and more v,r many cases of suffering
came under the eyes of the ladies of
this organization, which fully dem
onstrated the need of such an imti
t ution.JT It will lie remembered it
was the ladies of Rock Island, irre
spective of religious denominatin is,
who formed the St. Luke's hospital
guild, and whose saerilieing devot on
to the noble cause curried it on suc
cessfully for a number of years, un
til indeed, unreasonable atta-ks
upon their methods of raising reve
nue to sustain them in carrying on
the enterprise the charity ball for
instance caused its failure and so
disheartened the ladies of St. Luke's
that they were obliged to lin: 11 v
abandon the thankless undertaking.
The opposition to the charity ball
triumphed in its effects, but the
chief of these effects has been t hat

The I.iUir Suw tha Need.
As has been said the ladies of the
Industrial Kelief society in their ef
forts to care, for and help the tin
fortunate, have seen the direct need
of a hospital. After discussing v iri

ranged the petition which Mr. V.ix

That the proposition to be stibi lil

not a word of objection has been

Once erected and properly equipped,
the hospital would be almost self

of all the facts surrounding the mat

of the situation? Will it ignore the
appeal of charity and mercy? There
can be no question a" to what the re

ConochU Talked or Candidates.
The internecion warfare which is
raging within the local republican
ranks seems to grow more fierce and
deadly as time brings on the city
conventions. If anyone thinks for a
moment that Aid." Schroeder is not
in earnest in his opposition to Mayor
McC'onochie's renomination. he has
not become acquainted with the
Sixth ward alderman's methods of
campaigning. The most serious breach
that has occurred in the lines of the re
publican party is due to the charge
vigorously made bv Mr. Schroeder
that the mayor has deliberately and
shamefully " broken faith w ith him.
Mr. Schroeder avers that two years
ago when he Was a candidate for the
nomination, McConochie went to
him and told him that if he would
get off the track and out of his way
he would reciprocate two years
hence by throwing his support to his
candidacy. This pledge w as made in
the presence of a friend of Sehrocder's,
and agreeable to the understanding
Schroeder withdrew. Now the time
has rolled around for McConochie. to
make good his part of the pledge
but is he doing it? His own course
offers the answer and Schroeder is
contenting himself with the convic
tion that his honor is merely carry
ing out the course that has character
ized his policv with reference to all

Tn the Fourth ward the democrats
are talking strongly of nominating
Henry Lemburg for alderman.
Dr. C It. Kinyon is being discussed
as an available republican candidate
in the Third ward. He would make
as good a figure head as any, for the
people? of the ward have decided to
return Aid. Dan Corkcn.
The Second ward democrats are de
termined to have another alderman
in the council this year, and looking
to that end are talking of ex-Aid
Charles Durman and K. D. McCart
ney, either one of whom would dc
feat Hettcr or anv other man the re
publicans could put up. with ease.
The Fifth ward democrats are de
tcrmined to have an alderman this
spring, and are talking of Julius
J tinge. Jacob Scherrer and Robert
Kuschniann, the nomination of any
one of whom would mean election.
Aid. Knox's friends want to nominate
! him. but C. A. Schoessel has avowed
his disposition to run. and t here's the

announcement of his candidacy for
the nomination for collector on the
republican ticket. Burgh has proved
a gallant officer in the ranks of the g.
o. . and is now ready to show his
willingness to do or die for its sake.
J. Alex Montgomery has decided at
last to openly east himself at the feet
of the republican party and has come
forward with a formal announcement
of his candidacy for the city clerk
ship nomination. As there is a
strong bitter feeling existing between
Montgomery and Koehler. this last
act on the former's part was all that
was necessary to stir up a hornets'

That Rock Island is rapidly forging
ahead is apparent upon every side,
and in no branch of business is this
fact more strongly evidenced than
the real estate market, where the
many calls for suitable investments
and successful engineering of trans
actions has led to the formation of a
new firm that completed its arrange
ments today. Richard A. Donaldson
and George F. Roth have established
a Real Estate & Loan Exchange in
rooms 3. 4, 5 and C. Masonic Temple
Probably no more reliable or thor
oughly competent men could have
formed a co-partnership for a busi
ness of this kind than the gentlemen
mentioned. Mr. Donaldson was for
17 years connected with the county
clerk's office, 11 years of which he
was county clerk, and on his retire
ment in 1890 entered into partner
ship in the insurance business with
Hon. E. W. Hurst, ami has since
been selected secretary of the Home
Building & Loan association. The
other member, Mr. Roth, has been a
resident of the city 19 years and for
lrt vears held a responsible position
in the offices of Weyerhauser & Denk
mann. The past two years he has
been superintendent of the loan de
partment of the law firm of Jackson
& Hurst. Both gentlemen are pecu
liarly adapted to thislineof business
and their past experience both hav
ing been associated more or less in
this lints has amply qualified them
to undertake and carry on success
fully a business of this kind.
The fact that the two. members of
the firm are connected with the
building and loan, and loan proper
business will be of inestimable bene
tit to them in carrying on a real es
tate business, as thev can provide
investors or persons seeking a home
at moderate prices and on easy terms
with almost any kind of a deal they
wish. 1 hey arc thoroughly convers
ant with every detail of the business
and being gentlemen of push, cnergy
and sound business judgment, thev
can be fully relied upon to look after
any business that is intrusted to their
care. The jnew firm starts out with
bright prospects and combines in a
happy degree, ability, experience and
tlie other requisites of success.
