Municipal Delegation in Chicago
and Should Invite the
POSSIBILITY OF HIS COMING YET.
Anil If Not ou This Trip Some Other -At
All K vents It In Hoped Kock Isl
and's liood Wishes Will lie I'resented
While the Chance Is UtTered so Near
When the presidential jiarty came
so close to Bock Idand Saturday ami
yet avoided us, the people realized the
force of Tin: Auuii1 recent sugges
tion that with properly directed ttT rt
the city might have secured a place in
the itinerary of the trip. Today,
however, the city administration is in
Chicago. The majority of the heads
of the municipal government from
the mavor down anil most of the al
dermen are there. In fact, for the
interim, it is difficult to determine
who has the immediate direction of
public affairs. The Union is authority
for the statement that the responsi
bility for running the municipal ma
chine for two days has been upon the
.shoulders of Miss Katie Gottsinann, the
experienced and capable assistant in
the ofliee of the city clerk. With such
an important ami di-tinguished re pre
mentation of the city of Hock Island
ut Chicago, ttie opportunity should
not lie Lfglected to impress upon the
president the disappointment that is
.-hared by all claes of people here,
that within the pat few days the
executive mid his suite should have
been so near and yet so far.
The Chicago papers t 1 1 of munici
pal delegations from various parts of
lhe countrv that have been admitted to
the presence of the president during
his stay in Chicago to urge him to in
clude their respective cities in his
nvels. To some of these, in
oit, fir in.-tance, the president
..- been obliged to decline, but with
t '.e promi.se of a visit ut a future time.
Among those in Chicago is a delega
tion from Omaha, seeking to induce
the president, after his vi.-it to Sioux
Citv, on his return from the Dakotas,
where he reviews the returned troops
from the Philippines, to stop at
Omaha and inspect the Nebraska vol
unteers. It is not known yet whether
the president will alt-r his plans suf
ficiently to accord this recognition or
not. If he does he will be expected to
wait for the return of the Kansas boys,
now daily expected in San Francisco,
and the most famous of all who went
to the Philippines. As he is not likely
to do this, it is suppostd that he wili
decline the Omaha invitation, espec
ially as he was in the Nebraska me
tropolis last fall about this time, l'.ut
should he determine to include Imaha.
it would so change the plan of travel
of the presidential train that it might
be brought east via the Kock Island to
this point and then transefrred to the
Milwaukee or Hurlington for Du
buque, which is, as now arranged, the
next scheduled step of importance
after Sioux City.
Should Invite lllm An) way.
Hut in t lie event of the Omaha ef
forts proving unavailing, the opportu
nity now afforded in Chicago to offi
cially extend the invitation of the city
should not be neglected, as serving for
a subsequent occasion when the head
of the nation is again on wheels.

Kock Inland High School Shots Out Musca
Hock Island's High school eleven
covereu usen wun glory in its season s
tirst match aiue of football Saturday
afternoon, wiping up the dust of
the J weJftn street diamond to the
tune of 11 to 0. The boys demon
strated throughout the exciting con
test that they had been excellently
trained. When the teams lined up on
the field to begin the battle a glance
satisfied oue without knowledge of
their comparative seientilic qualifica
tions that the Kock Islanders were
elected to come out at the short end
of the horn, for the Iowans hail con
siderably the advantage in weight.
But they locked the head the gridiron
tactics. So excellently versed were
the locals in this respect that it was
but a very few moments after the
start had been announced that they,
working eooly, fell onto the move
ments of their antagonists and the
score relates the remainder of the
story, which, iulecd, proved a very
sweet one to the admirers of football
in Hock Island, and which will doubt
less serve as an impetus to the inter
est in the sport here, ami will result
in more encouragement to the High
School Athletic association, which is
promoting the game, in the way of
larger patronage of ensuing events on
the gridiron. The teams linetl tip as
