mounted for service on ship and the

ONE HtllfDBED AT BANQUET
iieut. Got. W. A. Nortlicott and
Others Speak A Fine
Rock Island Club members last ev
ening paid tribute to the memory of
Washington in the form of a banquet
at the clubhouse on Sixteenth street.
It was the first banquet served for the
whole membership, similar affairs
having not been attempted owing to
the fear of cramped accommodations,
and it proved one of the really big
successes on the' social calendar of
The feast was served in the billiard
hall, which was cleared of its playing
tables and prettily decorated in the
national colors. The walls were drap
ed with kirffe American flags, in the
folds of which were hung likenesses
of Washington, Lincoln and McKin
ley. The guests gathered in the library
and reception room at 7:30 and pro
ceeded to the dining hall, where the
following menu, excellently served un
der the direction of Steward R. R.
L:iwli:r, was discussed:
Scotia's Cream Soup.
Rroiled Whitefish. Parsley Rutter.
Parisienne Potatoes. Khine Wine.
Fillet Reef, larded. Mushrooms.
French Peas. (! laced Sweet Potatoes.
Tomato Prineesse. St. dulien.
Vanilla Ice Cream.
Roquefort Cheese. Rents Crackers.
Jules Verne Cigars.
Toantmaster Open Oratory
F. A. Head, president of the club.
was toast master, and a capital one
he proved, his introduction following
the completion of the feast allowing
him an opening for the uncorking of
a fund of humorous hits prepared at
the expense of a number of the mem
bers. Mr. Head then grew serious
and felicitated the membership and the
citv on having such a creditable or
ganization as the Rock Island Club.
and dwelt upon the attractions it of
fered for the entertainnv-Yit of those
belonging and their friends, no city
in the state outside of Ch'cago having
anything to surpass it. ..Thereupon
Mr. Head introduced Robert Kexdale,
who recited an original poem, "The
Homage of the Drum:"
TUB IIOMAI! K OF TUB DKCM.
Men of the nation, sires and sous.
Heirs of a grandeur still to be.
I sin": of deeds whose valor won
The glory of Thermopylae;
I sing the praise of gallant bands
Who held the pass against the foe
The hosts who stood with Washing
And gave the lion blow for blow.
I'he warning drum-beat wakes the
In busy mart and mountain glen
.MI armed to strike for liberty.
Spring up the Yankee ininute-men!
Again the belfry lantern gleams,
To signal that the foe is near,
And through the night, and far away.
Speeds on the steed of Paul Revere.
I see the fathers, roused for war,
Rush on to die with faith sublime,
The offspring of a fighting race.
That humbled kings in Cromwell's
I hear the tramp of marching feet.
The air is filled with wild alarms,
nd from the darkness rings a cry,
"My countrymen, to arms to
Our heroes sleep where cities rise.
To greet the light of freedom's
Their graves a priceless heritage
For generations yet unborn!
Nor time, nor tide, nor stress of war.
Shall dim the lustre of their name
It needs no splendid Parthenon
To make secure the nation's fame.
The guns of mighty battleships.
The rolling drum, the bugle shrill,
Pay homage unto Washington,
The idol of a people's will;
The flag he loved, with newer stars,
Waves over land and over sea.
And tyrants dare assail no more
Our country vast, United, free.
In response to the persistent ap
plause Mr. Rexdale recited another
poem of his own writing, an oriental
allegory, the story of Hen Alt Chan.
Mr. Northcott dire Oration.
Lieut. Cov. W. A. Northcott was the
orator of th.e evening. He was ac
corded an ovation when ho. arose to
speak and was called upon by one of
the guests to enlighten his nyditors
on the. state senate gavel incident.
Tho lieutenant governor admitted
having brought the gavel down rath
er hard on his table, but he wished it
understood in doing so he was acting
simply in self-defense.
Mr. Northcott showed Washington
as the incarnation of a great princi
pie, whose evolution required ages
the principle of human liberty, and
the formation of a government on
that principle which shall endure for
ages. The speaker referred to the
mighty nations of ancient times
Egypt, Creece and imperial Rome
nations which achieved great results
m the arts and sciences, but which
disappeared from the stage of his
tory because their development was
from the top the few being rich and
powerful, all absorbing all the cul
ture. and personal -privileges. - With
the teachings of Christ there came
into the world the seed of human lib
erty, which is the-counterpart of a
human brotherhood. The speaker
briefly referred to the development of
the spirit of liberty in Europe, and
its fruition in America when the col
onies declared their independence,
and found in Washington the proto
type of Anglo-Saxon spirit of liberty.
Washington stood at the apex, the
bloody angle of all that civilization
brought up to that time, and bnilded
for himself an imperishable monu
ment, because he exerted the powers
of his clear head, the influence of his
pure personal character, and great
physical courage in behalf of the es
tablishment and maintenance of a
government by the people and for the
people. The sjeaker analyzed the in
fluences at work in the building epoch
of the nation, showing that New Eng
land furnished the intellectual fath
ers of our independence, as well as
the army commanded by Washing
ton. Rut the idea of human liberty
could only be made a fact because the
south contributed her Washington,
Patrick Henry, Madisc.n, Jefferson,
and others. Continuing. Mr. North
cott spoke of the nation preserving
epoch of our history, made necessary
by faults in the billing period, and
in this latter epoch it was given to
Illinois to occupy -the center of the
stage. Her statesmen like Douglas
were t he builders who sought to rem
edy and circumscribe the baneful ef
fects of slavery; on her soil was en
acted the tragedy which vitalized the
anti-slavery agitation, and from her
people came to us Lincoln, the great
est man in the tide of time, the man
under whose leadership the equality
of all men before the law was made
a fact. The speaker concluded with
an eloquent tribute to the charac
ters of these two great cmlodiinents
of the spirit of human liberty Wash
ington and Lincoln.
Future of Trl-Cltle
"The Future of the Tri-Cities" was
responded to by C. E. White, presi
dent of the Moline Rusiness Men's as
sociation, who said that it was his
confident belief the-next census would
show a population in the three cities
of 200,000. The possibilities for indus
trial expension were unlimited, said
Mr. White, and were not appreciated
as much by the people living here as
those from other localities.
.1. F. Lardner, general manager of
the' Tri-City Railway company, had
for a topic "Tri-City Ronds of Steel."
in which he briefly and entertaining
ly outlined the retirement of the mule
and bobtail car and the advent of
electricity here some fifteen years
ago. Since then the cities have ad
vanced and the street railway system
has kept up with the procession, not
withstanding it was discouragingly
expensive at times, until now there
was here one of the most complete
systems in the country. Mr. Lardner
wanted the three cities to back each
other in every movement having for
its object the advancement of either
place, for his position was that what
helped one city helped all.
Rook Taland Road'a New Deal.
Col. C. W. French, of Davenport,
was to have spoken on "The Spirit of
the Times," but was prevented from
attending, and Hon. E. W. Hurst kind
ly consented to take his place on the
program. Mr. Hurst, at the invitation
of the toast master, let out some of
the details of the Rock Island road's
projected improvement at Pleasant
Valley township, stnting that the
bringing of these immense shops to
Rock Island county was due entirely
to the efforts of R. IJ. Cable, former
president of the system, who had. told
him that he wished to do something
forthe community where he had spent
the greater part of his life before he
retired from active connection with
the management of the Rock Island
road. Mr. Cable would have liked to
have the shops closer to this city, but
that was found impracticable after
a survey by the company engineers.
Then Mr. Ilurst entered into a de
scription of the magnitude of the es
tablishment it proposed to locate on
the newly acquired tract, the build
ings the company intends erecting at
once occupying 17 acres of ground.
"The Tri-Cities Now and Hereafter"
was the toast assigned to Capt. Lon
Rryson, president of the Davenport
Rusiness Men's association. aIio elab
orated upon the transportation ad
vantages of the community, placing it
in touch with the markets of the
world, and the power possibilities of
the Rock Island rapids.
Activities at Arnenal.
Maj. S. K. Rlunt, in discussing "Mod
em Manufacturing," related some in
teresting statistics about Rock Island
arsenal, where there are at present
employed 1,400 men. ISO per cent more
than any other factory in the three
cities, and has a weekly payroll of
$20,000. He expected the force would
be. increased several hundred as soon
as the new small arms plant is start
ed in operation.
T. J. Medill responded to "The Rock
Island Club," outlining the objects for
which it was formed and referring to
the aceommodat ions and amusement
it affords. It was a place where men
could meet, for both business and
pleasure, where friends from outside
the city could be entertained. It
was just such an institution as every
city the size of Rock Island should
After three cheers for Moline, Dav
enport, the club, toastmaster and
speakers, the exercises closed with
the singing by the company of "Amer
ica." with orchestral accompaniment,
music for the evening being furnish
ed by Lee Grabbe's orchestra.
A pleasant feature was the rendi
tion of two ballads by Fred Davis.
