AS TO RAILROADS
Cooperation With Merchants and
Council in Interest of the

Unanimity of Sentiment Shown--
President's Visit and Fac
Rock Island Club members were
out in force at the special meeting
last night called for the purpose cf
discussing the railroads and their
present and future relations with the
As showing the interest manifest in
this important question among the
business and professional men of the
city, the meeting was probibly the
largest ever iield by the club purely
for business purposes, and the spirit
of determination manifested in the
railroad and other questions is further
evidence of the revival of the old-time
spirit of push in those quarters that
have it within their power to do for
the weal or woe of the community.
Entertainment of President.
President T. J. Medill ;was in the
chair, Warren Keck being elected to
serve as secretary in tho absence cf
Secretary B. D. Connelly. After the
president bad explained the ob
jects of the gathering thero was a
discussion as to whether the mat
ter of arranging for the entertain
ment of President McKinley. as far as
the club is concerned, should bo left
to the executive committee of the club
or whether a special committee of 10
should be appointed, a motion by L
Simon to the latter effect finally "pre

Sala were present as committees from
the Retail Merchants1 association on
railroads and factory sites, and re
ported the action taken by their asso
ciation the previous evening.
To Call on Itallroad Official.
The following resolution, submitted
by F. W. Bahnsen. was thereupon
unanimously adopted: .
Resolved, That the president of
the Rock Island Club be empowered
to designate a committeo of as many
as he sees lit to act in conjunction
with committees appointed by the
Retail Merchants' association and the
city council for the purpose of con

view to the promotion of the interests
of the citv." '

ized to say for II. D. Mack, division
agent of the Burlington, that there had
been a wrong impression concerning
his company, to the effect that changes
in its service would necessitate the
removal of a number of families from
Rock Island; that the facts in the case
were that, instead of a loss, there
would be a gain of at least 50 people
to the city.
Ur. Cable's Assurances Repeated.
Mr. Medill also told of an interview

R R. Cable, chairman of the board of
directors of the Rock lalaad road, yes

stantially as that given by Mr. Cable
in The Argus last evening. Mr.
Medill reported that Mr. Cable
said, that the number of train
crews to be shifted to Moline on
account of the transfer of the west

exaggerated; that only tho through

crews would continue to make tneir
headquarters here, this point also to
continue to bo tho terminus of the
passenger trains. Further, the com
pany wss to increase the repairing fa
cilities at its roundhouse here, was to
build a fine new passenger station,
and altogether the outlook was not as
gloomy as it bad been pictured.
The Factory Site.
The opening of a site for factories
in the western part of the city was con

was held in abeyance pending settle

F. G. Young, chairman of a special
committee of the Merchants' associa
tion, said that arrangements were
under way to accommodate a local
factory that had announced its inten

to Davenport unless something wai
done for it here.
FOR NEW FACTORIES
A most important matter was
brought before the Davenpsrt Busi
ness Men's association last evening in
a communication from the West Dav
enport Improvement company, in
which that company offers free fac
tory sites with railway and water
transportation facilities. The reading
of the communication was received
with applause and was followed by
a vote of thanks bv the association.
The communication was signed bv
George T. Baker, president of the
company, and stated briefly that the
company tendered free factory sites
to such industries as might locate
there. The company owns an exten
sive tract of land just below and
abutting the city limits, in what is
the old town of Black Hawk. This
tract of land lies on the river, having
a river frontage of considerable

ALUMNI TO MEET IIIUH SCHOOL.
Warm Game Fromlsad at the Park Fri
The annual baseball frame between
the high school team and a picked ag
gregation from the Alumni associa
tion takes place at the Twelfth street
park at 3:30 Friday afternoon, and
from all indications it will bo the
tightest one played yet. The high
school boys are very fast this year, as
may be judged from the fact that
they held the heavy men from Augus-
tana u.vn in a practice game to one
score in four innings. Toey are par
ticularly strong iu their infield,
Hampton on first and Channon on
third being lelt-handcd men, with a
quick, jerky movement that is very
puzzling to bae stealers.
The Alumni team, however, is not
so slow. It is composed of men with
brilliant records behind them and the
practice they have been getting of
late has put them in old-time shape.
Gen. Charley Dck is captain and
third baseman. The way he stops
left-hand liners and tosses them over
to first is a sight for sore eyes. Sam
Dirt plays first and his professional
instinct ' may be depended upon to
keep any and everything from getting
past him. Harry Schreiner on second
nails everything' that comes within
reacn. and Harry Campbell at short
stop is death on grounders, but his
best hold lies in running bases.
You'd think him a dromedary to see
him stealing second. Harry Mitchell
will pitch. He has an arm as hard and
tough as a new dollar-and-a-half ball
and his curves are simply majestic,
