STREET FAIR TALK,
Prospects of Having One in Rock
Island Next Fall
otheh cities have succeeded
Why Cannot We Do tin W ell? A Chance to
Insure a Visit From the President of the
I'nited States-at the Same Time-Club
Llkelr to Take Action With Reference to
Will Kock Island have a street fair
next fall? That is the cpiestion that
many citieus are interested in just
now, and it proved a matter, as stated
yesterday, which awakenea consider
able informal discussion at the Hock
Island Club Saturday night. The suc
cess of other cities in this modern
and novel manner of drawing people
to a city was presented' anil explained
by manv who have cither witnessed
or heard directly of the expeiienccs of
. " r cities, and the conclusion in
whici. 'M seemed to concur was that a
special i."";ting of the club to take
this and similar enterprises, such for
instance, as the projected new theatre,
up. hould be held unng the present
I'rcsident Coultl be Intlaceu i. " "me.
Incidental to the discussion of I:e
street fair project, the prospect of in
ducing the presideut to include Kock
Island in his western tour next fall
was aNo brought up, and the unanim
ous opinion was that with the proper
action the coming of the president
would be assured. It will be remem
bered that when, owing to the exist
ence of the war, the president was
obliged last summer to cancel his
promised visit to Kock Island during
the national U. V. I', encampment,
he stated that at a future time, when
his ollicial duties would permit, he
would be highly pleased to come to
this citv. He is to make a trip west
next autumn: he has already prom
ised to include visits to Chicago and
Peoria, and (lalesburg is alter
him again, too. But as the
latter citv had the honor last fall,
Kock Island will no doubt stand the
chance this time. Daenport is mov
ing in the same direction that llock
Island is. and if the president decides
to come, it will be of the nature of a
tii-c;ty event, as the president has
relatives in Moone that would put in
a claim, naturally, for a portion of the
time in that city, as well. Of course
Kock Island arsenal would be the
main attraction that would draw the
executive tt) this community, but the
time would be most propitious to
have the street fair also.
