Mayor Mediil," Chief Sexton and
Sheriff Gordon had a conference fast
evening, prior to the mayor's depar
ture for Chicag$,'in regard to the
best method to receiving and dispos
ing of Kelly's armv of the Coxey
crusade on its arrival In the com
munity. It was the prevailing feel
ing that if the three cities could act
in unison in this respect the burdens,
which it is apparent must fall on
each, might he lightened and an
unwelcome delegation of visitors
disposed of in the quickest possible
time, and sent hence on its wav with
no illfeelinjrs - toward the locality.
After due deliberation it was decided
to call a meeting at the mayor's
office, Uock Island, at 8 o'clock nest
Monday afternoon of the mnvofs and
chiefs of police of the three cities, as
well as the sheriffs of Rock Island
and Seott counties, with a view to a
proper discussion of the situation
and the best course to pursue. It
was decided to request the preence
of Mayors Hennett, of Moline, and

Appealed In Vain.
Several times during the recent
session of the board of supervises,
Sheriff Gordon laid the matter of the
probable isitation of the Kelly
army to Rock Island county
In-fore the board, and asLed
for advice governing his ac
tions or for authority to move in any
emergency; but to all the -sheriff's
suggestions the board turned a deaf
ear, or gave him the laugh. Finally,
Sheriff Gordon became provoked and
he informed the supervisors that he
would act according to his judgment
when the Kelly army arrived, and
should his judgment dictate, he
would swear in all the deputies he
might deem necessary at the coun
ty's expense, and that he would pro
tect the property of the county
should it become necessary, whether
he had the authority of the board or
not. The supervisors having ad
journed without giving tho sheriff's
pleas so mnch as respectful consider
ation, the sheriff called upon Mayor
Medill, who had already had the
matter under consideration, and the
result was the conference of last
When Will They be Ucre?
The Kelly crusaders are moving
across the state of Iowa, and making
very good time, and. are expected iu
Deo Moines some time this evening.
They will probably rest there over
Sunday, and resume their tramp
early Monday morning, with the
three cities as their objective point.
At the rate they have been traveling
they should reach here some time
the latter part of next week. There
are 1,200 men in the Kelly ranks, and
the plan now before the representa
tives of the three cities and the two
counties is to treat them as decently
as possible, and invite them to pro
ceed. Where Will They Camp?
Many inquiries have been made as
to where the army will be encamped
on its arrival, and several places
have been suggested. The general
impression is that the Rock Island
ball park will be secured for the day.
Knough admission might ! taken iu
at a utekcl a head to the public to
feed the army while here. Ernest
Armstrong, wiio came east with the
Kelly army from California and de
serted it at Atlantic, arrived in Dav

A New Soil Fountain.
One of the most expensive, as well
as one of the neatest soda fountains
in Rock Island, has been placed in
Ilartz & Ullemeyer's drug store, on
the corner of Twentieth street and
Third avenue. It covers a space of
nine feet long and live feet wide, and
reaches from the floor to the ceiling.
The fountain proper was manufac
tured by Otto Zwietusch, of Milwau

tain consists of the Columbian

as follows: Vert Maurin front, black

black and gold marble bands, Griotte
mouldings and Mexican onyx tiles.
There are 20 syrup and six draught
tubes, and the wood work is all baud
carved. It is tho idea of the pro
prietors, and the work has boen ex
ecuted at a cost of $2,000, which is
an evidence of the progressive spirit
of the hustling young proprietors of
