House Warmtoc Lt Evening at Which
Cng-reasina Prince is tieaid.
The McKialey club housewarmmg
of its new rooms on third avenue
last evening was not a howling suc
cess as far as the attendance of active
republicans is concerned. There was
a crowd present and the inadequacy
of the Quarters for the accommoda
tion of any lair sized audience, gave
the assemblage the appearance of be
ing larger than it was at that, and
the atmosphere within ine siuuy
room was stifling and uncomfortable
to those present. City Attorney J,
Li. Haas, as president 01 tne ciud,
presided. There were also on the
platform Congressman George W.
Prince and . A. freer, 01 uaiesourg,
Senator F. L. Brown of the Washing

band opened the exercises wiin a

Then Mr. Haas made aiittle address
and the Dinner Bucket quartet again
vocalized, after which Congressman
Prince was introduced. He indulged
in the stereotyped republican cam
paign argument about the party of
Lincoln, Logau and Grant, upheld
protection, but he ventured with
caution on the money question. He
finally got around to the indorse
ment of the St. Louis piatiorm plank
and eventually repudiated complete
ly his past sentiments on the money
question. tie was interrupted a
number 01 times by a notoriety seek'
tag individual who had no better
taste than to chip in his lip, and the
speaker attempted to reply and con
cluded with eulogis'ic reference to
the ticket named at St. Louis.
There was more vocal music, an

tie oa tbe Subject,
The Peoria park plan, conducted
under the statutory provisions of the
state,, as heretofore extensively de
scribed in The Abocs through a
communication from E. U. Gnyer, is
received with much favor not only in
this city, but in Molina as well, and
there is general talk of a meeting ot
representative citizens ot the two
cities with a view to taking the mat
er up and insuring to the twin-city
community a syst-m of parks and
drives which will be a source ot
pleasure and pride to the combined
population. Rock Island is now far
in advance of most other cities in th
state. It not in the country, in the
matter of lovely parks. Its pub ic
squares are known throughout the
land, and no advertisement as- far as
the city's general advantages and at
tractions are concerned, has been ao
far reaching and influential ia ita
favor as the fame ot Spencer and
Garney squares. ' Black Hawk
Watch tower, too. in 11s historical
and romantic surroundings is always
a subject of interest and intense de
light to all our people and alike to
strangers among us.
ow the plan is to procure sufficient
land, before it la too late, ior sua inr
ther park purposes in both Rock Isl
and and Moiine, ana me laying out
of the same in pleasant drives and
beauteous features. The Idea goes
still further. It involves the con
neciicg up of these parks with drives
such as many other cities of tbe
state, Peoria being conspicuous
among the rest, are favored with.
The spirit of the times favors a
united effort on the part of Rock
Island and Moiine, looking to the
end so much desired. The project
6eems practicable, but a meeting
such as it is proposed - to call in the
near feature would enable those
whose public spirit has indaced
them to bring it about to explain it
more fully and to determine if the
people of the two cities are prepared
to undertake an enterprise which ap
peals to all.
