The joint committee of the Rock
111 and and Moiine clubs on parks
and boulevards will meet again this
week to revive the project under-
taken daring the winter months an
der each fnvor&ble auspices, and
which it was deemed test to aban
don temporally daring the excite
meat of the spring campaigns in
both cities. That the enterprise wilt
be carried through to success hai
never for a moment been doubted in
the minds of any of the committee
members, and a gratify irg circum
stance throughout has been the many
canines made from time to time
bv citizens as to how the matter was
progressing. The system proposed
is one that promises so much t both
cities and tho surrounding and in
termediate territory, that all who
tally comprehend the significance
and scope of the proposition are
enthusiastically in favor of it. The
aesire inai ail should nave a clear
undtrstandiog if it arid that it
should not te complicated by other
subjects of adsorbing interest was
me real cause ox tne dropping oi it
until after tho regular municipal
elections. The fact, however, that
the prop'.e cf Rock Island at least
have kept track of it is the best evi
dence of the commendation with
which the scheme is met. The park
committee will probably meet with
few obstacles in putting the plan

Linked with lha interest that has
been manifested in the park and
drive system is the sentiment favor
able to the Itoci Island Club which

but which has not received the at

it is worthy of. The disaPDoint-
