GUARDS IN THE AIR
Doubtful Whether Company
Will Attend the Chicago
FIGURED ON. A WEEK'S STAY
But It Appears the Kxpenso of Kn
Members of the Illinois Xationa
Guard, including' those of Company
A, of this city, arc, in fhe vernacular
up in the air regarding the Chicago
centennial celebrations and whether
r not they are to take part in the
military display upon that occasion
The National Guardsman, the official
paper of the National Guard, is au
thority for the statement that the
entire Illinois militia is to take part
in the centennial celebration and to
stay in the windy city a week.
When questioned in regard to the
matter, members of Company A here
stated that no official orders had
been received regarding the taking of
the company to Chicago. Chief of Po
lice Kittilsen, of Moline, colonel of the
fith regiment, says that, while he has
been in correspondence with those at
the head of things, lie has as yet been
unable to get a definite answer on the
Is l'p to Chicago.
The trouble seems to be that the
matter of expense is too formidable
and the city of Chicago, notwith
standing her patriotic ardor and de
sire to have the centennial a success,
does not care to raise the necessary
funds. It is estimated that it would
cost $..0;M) to take each regiment -to
Chicago and keep it there during the
week, and this is a pretty steep price
