LITTLE SIGJT OF EAELT SETTLIUtElST
Proposition to Delefat an Oof slds Com
mittee to Select the Bite Declared Inad
visable A Consultation With Oovernor
Tanner. But It is Not Likely He Will la
fere. The normal school contest is still
on at Springfield and there appears
little prospect of an earlv settlement.
The trustees put in yesterday dis
cussing a proposition to appoint a
commission ox normal scnooi men to
select the site, but it was pointed out
that this would not help matters
The board of trustees cannot legallv
shift the responsibility for the loca
tion of the school, nor can it bind
itself to accept the judgment of out
sile men. It was suggested that the
trustees a? individdals could bind ,
themselves, but some of the members
object to this and Insist that the trus
tees shall do the work themselves.
' Call on Governor.
Today the trustt-es will call on Gov.
Tanner for advice, but it is not likely
that be will interfere. He has been
ke'eping out of the fight, and it would
not be to his advantage to throw nis
influence to either of the towns.

NIGHT FOR WOODMEN.
Com".nued from Fifth pure
ed at once to the theatre, which he
nti-red just as Chairman William
Jackson urese to deliver his address
of welcome. As-Mr. Johns- n, who
on all former occasions tince Rock
Island first became closely identified
with the order1 highest and best in
terests, has occupied a place with the
omcials of the order near the btage.
was escorted to a seat in the body of
the house, with the rank and lile, a
cheer weut up throughout the build
ing. This was repeated again and
again until it swelled into a mightv
shout, accompanied by vigorous hand
clapping and feet-stomping that shook
the building. Then during the course
of the evening, when one of the speak
ers alluded incidentally to Mr. John
son, there came another burst of
approbation. And when the ex
ercises proper were over, and
thi- last of the regular speakers had
spoken, the cry arose a'l over the
bouse, of "JonnsonT" "Jobnson: '
"Johnson, of Peabodv!" etc. The
suggestion was taken up with such
unanmity of expression that it seemed
ss if everyone in the house was con
tributing t the volume of the sound,
and the scene which attended the
entrv of Mr. Johnson was repeated.
When be stood up in his seat in re
cognition of the compliment shown
him. and attempted to speak, the act
proved but the signal for even more
rapturous demonstration, and Lt was
some time before quiet could be re-
tored sumcieotly for him to make
himself beard. Acknowledging the
testimonial of friendship shown him,
and expressing his appreciation of it.
be spoke of bis reg'et tuat, because,
of unavoidable circumtances, he bad
not been privileged to spend more
time in the city during the present
gathering of the order's officials, but
he was merely passing through the
city, and had improved the oppor
tunity to stop, if only for the even
ing, and would be obliged to resume
bis journey on the midnight train.
He was overjoyed at the thought of
meeting again old friends from all
parts of tjfe jurisdiction of Wood
craft, and of making the acquaint
ance of those who had entered its
official ranks siace he had ceased to
occupy official station As he re
sumed his seat, Mr. Johnson was
again warmly applauded.
Utbrr Social Events.
