PLAN AND PURPOSE
Of Tonight's Theatre Meeting at
the Rock Island
THE PEOPLE ABE INTERESTED.
Is Their Project and They
Should Understand It
Rock. Island is for innate in th9 op
portunity that now presents itself (or
tbe securing of a brand new ground
floor theatre, not only in the fact
that such a chance should be offered
for the success of the undertaking
without risk or responsibility to a
single citizen, but in the character of
the promoter who has been induced
to come here. George II. Johnston is
not only the most successful and most
sought promoter of amusement enter
prises in the country, but in the
world, for that matter. The fact that
his name is attached to tbe under
taking is an assurance in the
first place that it will be put
through in every detail just as he
prU3ies. if it is put through at all,
and that after it is completed the class
of attraction w'll be up to the stand
ard of the house. There is no exag
geration about this assertion. The
committee and others interested in
the proposition hare had ample time
to lcok thoroughly into Mr. John
ston's record from one end cf the
land to the other, and not a tingle
instance has beea found where he has
failed in the slightest particular to do
exactly as he contracted to do. lie is
a man whose reputation is his main
stock in trade; he is proud of it and
will permit nothing to be done either
in his own interests or the interests
of those with whom he is dealiug to
reflect upon it.
I-et It Be radii stood.
There ought not to be the slightest
doubt of the success of Mr. Johnston's
plans in Rock Island, and it is for this
reason that The Akgcs urges a large
attendance of citizens generally at to
night's public meeting to tw held at
the Rock Island Club, where the proposition-
now before the city will be
tally ani intelligently explained. It
is desired that it be particularly un
derstood mat mere is no purpose in
tbe -call to get people to tubsciibe
against their will or to put them in a
position where tnev will feel that they
ought to do so. The committee has
taken the view that this is an enter
prise in which the entire people are
interested and that they should un
derstand it thoroughly, as tbey ouly
can by an informal discussion, and
thus through cooperation tho work
may be undertaken in a more system
atic manner and speedily put through
John Eberson, who is conducting
tbe ticket sale for Mr. Johnston, is ill
and has been confined to his room at
the Harper since Saturday.
Bobctantlal EDcoariffmtnt Offered to the
New Theatre Koterprlse.
A commendable spirit was shown
this afternoon by two Rock Island
citizens, who believe the city should
not let this opportunity f-lip to get a
new theatre, lhe following telegram

THE NATURAL KINGDOM.
All the Woaderfnl Featares to Be Seen
With TCedaeeday'a Show.
The strange, savage and beautiful
living wonders of the natural king
dom have never been so comprehen
sively exhibited as they now are in
tbe united Adam Forepaugh and Sells
Brothers' enormous menageries, and
will be shown here Wednesday. Not
only this, but there are also repre
sentatives of the various species
which are absolutely the only ones
in captivity. Take the time to in
spect this splendid collection. It is
full of interest and instruction, merits
your attention, and the management
hopes will receive it. The circus and
hippodrome performances do not be

the menagerie doors, and at their con
clusion j on will have another chance
to study these zoological treasures.

James CillaDD Found in Rail

HE HAD BEEN ASSAULTED.
Mike Dunn Held for Attempt to
A riverman named James Gillapp
was found last night lying across the
Peoria tracks at Twentieth street with
his hands tied. He was taken to the
police station in the patrol wagon and
there gave information which led to
the arrest of Mike Dunn on the charge
of assault with intent to commit mur
der. It seems that Gillapp, who is
not entirely sound mentally, had been
drinking with Dunn and the latter
undertook to relieve him of his cash
and began by knocking him down.
Not much further is known except
that he was found as stated. Magis
trate Stafford gave Dunn a prelim
inary hearing this morning and con
tinued the case till Thursday, the de
fendant being held at the eounty jail
in default, of 500 bonds.
Three young fellows created a dis
turbance yesterday afternoon in tbe
neighborhood of Eteveiith aveuue and
Fifceenth street, by attempting a pre
mature celebration of tbe national
holiday. Revolvers were beirg used
rather' recklessly when the patrol
wagon was summoned to the scene and
Officers Moody, Thode and Kberhart
gave chase to the offenders, who took
refuge in the hills south of town. The
pursuit was not entirely successful,
hut the offenders were recognized and
this morning "Brody" Gracer was
arrested at h;s home. The others are
known and will be taken as soon as
they can be located. Gracer claims
to have been using blank cartridges.
Charles Am merman was assessed

Tomorrow'! School Election.
Considerable interest is felt in to
morrow's school election, atwbich one
diiector is to be chosen. There are
two candidates in the field, A. Soland
and George F. Roth. Both are worthy
citizens and both are deserving of tho
energies being expended by their re
spective friends. Hard work is beinc
done for each. As said Saturday, the
fact that Mr. Roth lives down town,
whieh section of the city will be de
prived of a representative on the re
tirement of Mr. Heimbeck, whose
place is thus to be tilled, is responsible
for an unusually earnest effort for Mr.
Roth below the Third ward, and there
seems to be a correspondingly strong
pull being made for Mr. Soland in bis
own ward, which is tho Fifth.

Grave Yard Mystery Solved.
The grave j-ard mystery at Rey
nolds has been solved. Nov. 1 last a
man named Smith living near the vil
lage secured the keys to the cemetery
from Mrs. John McAdam and buried
there the remains of an infant. Mrs.
McAdam forgot to report the matter
to her husband, who is secretary of
the cemetery association, and so it
came that no record was made 'of it,
resnlting in an investigation by Corc
ner L. V. Eckhart, as told in The Ab-
crs last week. Mrs. McAdam has
written a letter to the coroner ex
plaining tbe affair.
