VOL. 15. NO. 46. DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY ROCK ISLAND OFFICIAL TOLD HORTON BUSINESS MEN TO RE COURTEOUS Several Horton men are behind a move to furnish the old Windsor hotel building in that town, for use exclusively of Rock Island shopmen.

It is said that furnishings for the hotel will cost more than $2,000. Horton shopmen who went out in strike are still "holding firm." It is said that many of them are of the opinion that Rock Island has played its last cardthat no further efforts will be made to get them to return to their old jobs in the shops. Good many Horton citizens continue to show indifference toward new shop workers. At noonday meeting of Kiwanis club, Monday, Assistant Chief Engineer Ford of the Rock Island, was principal speaker. Mr.

Ford spoke planly about the way certain Horton people are treating shop workers. Mr. Fords criticism was not well received, it is said. Mr. Ford said he deplored position of business men.

He said the new shopmen had come to stay; that business men, citizens in general, should make up their minds to be courteous to them, just as they have been to old employes in years gone by. Some of Mr. Fords remarks were so severe it is said that a good many business men became so mad they refused to meet the speaker after he had finished his talk. Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 1, Rock Island will charge shopmen $1 a day for board.

This will cause many to search for other boarding places. Many of them will find sleeping, boarding places up town. DEATHS Courtin-D. S. Courtin died at his home in Huron, Saturday afternoon, Oct.

Note: George, that sounds like Old Stuff. Ed Hiller: I saw "Bringing Up Father" in Kansas City. It's on the order of an old fashioned musical comedy. Joe Gibbs: John Shetter, just back from Morrill, is limping. Some of his friends are saying that he got caught in a wolf trap.

Ed Smith: After looking at a picture of an evangelist printed in an exchance one is reminded of the old lady who, seeing a rhinocerous for 1st time, observed, "My, ain't he plain." Mart Parks: Talked on telephone Monday with father and mother who are in Kentucky. I heard them as distinctly as if they had been talking in Willis. They are having a good time. O. R.

Meyers: I asked Helvern why he didn't have his picture on his cards. He said if he was as good looking as the 2 candidates for district judge he sure would. Advertisement. A. R.

Andrews. Helvern deserves a great deal of credit on the clean race he is making. He doesn't believe in throwing mud as some of the candidates do. He will get a lot of votes for county attorney on Nov. 7.

Advertisement. Frank Morrill: Our apple crop was disappointment. About as much hard work as usual, however. Hot weather caused a big loss of Jonathans that fell. Prices this year were low.

Our crop totaled, all kinds of apples, about 12,000 bushels. A Banker: The talk that paved roads will confiscate the farmers property is silly. A lot of the farmers wealth is confiscated by the co-operative stores, elevators, similar enterprises he puts his money in. He could save enuf to build paved roads all over the United States it he kept his money out of such investments for a few years. G.

W. Irving: Owing to the rain there was no meeting of the taxpayers organization in October, but one will be held Nov. 4. The state tax levy is less per thousand than last year, saving from $4,500 to 000 in every county in the state. 50 of the most populous counties now have taxpayer organizations.

Remember the date and show your loyalty by being there as we have some important questions to take up. C. W. Good: In reply to an inquiry about the show for Thursday we have this telegram: "Kansas City, Oct. 27.

To the Auditorium, Hiawatha, Kans. We are playing Bringing Up Father this week to capacity business. Best satisfaction any dollar show this season. Best popular priced show playing Kansas City in years. Better than average $2.50 K.

Sherlock, Mgr. Grand Theatre." There are 24 people in this company and they have a car of their own special scenery. Prices here 50c to $1. Ewing Herbert: I would like to vote against any candidate who says he isn't in favor of paved roads, that they are confiscatory, etc. Such a man is ignorant--doesn't know what he should.

Mud roads cost more than paved roads. They take more of the farmers money than paved roads. A paved road can be built, paid for, with the use of it, within 20 years for $25 to $50 a year. No land owner in Brown county is so poor he can't afford paved roads. He can't afford mud roads, if he would just figure the cost to him of dirt roads which are mud roads in bad weather.

Whenever rain falls' the farmer and his family are shut in, are lonesome on the farm. The towns are deserted. No business is done. Yet where roads are paved business goes on as usual in bad weather. The farmer transacts his business in town, hauls his grain, has time from his farm work, account of wet weather to go any where paved roads will take him.

Klan Meeting For Men. There will be an open meeting under auspices of Hiawatha Ku Klux Klan Thursday, Nov. 2, at 8 o'clock, in old Postoffice hall. A national speaker of the Ku Klux Klan will explain the principles of the Klan. All men of Hiawatha and vicinity are cordially invited.
