W. tnm sad W. A. Jones, and a
Musical Treat ! Furnished by Spencer
The Moline newspaper boys capped
the climax of tri-city entertainment
last night ly tendering to their breth
eru of Koek I.-land and Davenport a
line banquet in connection with the
monthly meeting of the Tri-city Press
club. The gathering was held at the
Keator hou?e, some thirt v members of
the fraternity being in attendance.
The business session wai held iu the
guests' arlor. President Walter
Johnson occupied ti.e chair. Inciden
tal to the dispatching of routine mat
ters there was an interesting discus
sion of business methods. It
was led bv Messrs. Johnson, of
Koek Inland; V. F. Kastinaii. Mvron
Jordan and V. A. Jones, of Moline
and T. J. Feenev, of Davenport
Messrs. Johnson and Jordan were se-
le.ted as a committee to investigate
certain features and report to a
meeting of Koek Island and Moline
members. J. K. llalligan and George
K. Davis of the Davenport Leader, and
Malcolm Mackinnon, of the Daven
port Kepubliean. were proposed and
unanimously elected to membership
in the club.
At the Kesttre Hoard.
Having disposed of all matters of
bn-iness ln-fore the club, an invita
tion was extended by the Moline
members to accompany them to the
hotel dining hall, where a long and
elaborately decorated table only
tended to sharpen the appetites cre
ated lv the suggestion that somcthin
had been prepared for the inner man.
At each plate a pretty red rose had
lieen laid, while profuse bonnets had
been tastily arranged on the festive
board. The banquet was nieelv ar
ranged and iximisitelv carried out.
At the conclusion of the .spread the
guests were treated to songs by Spen
cer Kobtnson, Koek Isiaud gilted
tenor, who proved a wlwile concert
company in himself, and two enter
taining papers by K. V. Cram, of the
Davenport Democrat. and V. A.
Jones, of the Moline Mail. Mr. Cram
took for his subject '-People We've
Known ami Heard from. It was
brimful of characteristic drollery, and
recited facts, incidents anil experi
ences, some of which all were familiar
uilhaiid had encountered. lb; said
there were those who made the life of
the newsgathercr anything but pleas
ant, out then, too, the win Id was not
without people who knew how to
scatter roses in the thorny pathway
of the information chaser. Mr. Jones
told "What IIapeucd to Jones," and
he did it in a manner that elicited
many heart v laughs. (letting serious
along toward the close of his paper,
Mr. Jones gave a few valuable
pointers on newspaper circulation.
Sir. KultliiHon Singing.
Mr. K 'billion's singing was the
feature of the evening's enter
tainment. He was called upon
continually, but was always in readi
ness, and gave a scries of selections
which proved indeed a feast for the
ears oi ins auditors, his inagniiiccnt
oice making the room ring with
music. The numlers which he ren
dered were "li der the Kosc." "The
ind of the l.eal.' "Just a Little
Sunshine," "Annie Laurie,'" ami
Queen of the Mav."' There were
also songs by a iuinlet composed of
Mr. Kobinson, II. t . Downer. S. .
Searle, W. A. Jones, and John M.
1 he meeting, one of the happie-t in
the history of club, came to an end at
