Fur line Illj? City.
President F. T. Myers acted as the
chairman of the meeting. William A
Meese of Moline. was the first speaker
and In his remarks he compared the
two cities. Rock Island and Moline. and
the progress of. each. Mr. Meesc
strongly protested against jealousies
and said that the two cities are sister
cities, only a mere street separating
them, and should work in unison to
make the community a progressive
one.. Mr. Meese then told of the work
of the Moline Business Men's associa
tion. He remarked that the Moline
business men had a little better back
ing for the different things that the;
sought, because of the factories, but
that this should not stop the businesr
men of Rock Island from progressing
He urged an effort for new factories in
the west end of the city. In conclusion
he pictured a city of the future, when
the boundaries would include the terri
tory from Rock river at Colona west
to the limits of Rock Island, and south
to Rock river. He said he hoped to
see this in reality.

Thompson was the next speaker, and
in his address he pointed out tne tact,
with many illustrations, that the thin?;
hat. makes a city is the conservative
action of residents and business men
of the city. Mr. Thompson declared
that there is entirely too much jeal
ousy among the Rock Island business
men and not enough brotherly love.

Mayer Levi spoke on the subject.
"What Rock Island is Going to Be."
Mr. Levi was of the opinion of the
other speakers, that the men of the
city do not work, together to make the
city prosperous. "Every business man
in the city of Rock Island should put
his shoulder to the wheel and get in
dustries and factories here, which is
positively the making of a prosperous
nd enterprising city." he concluded.
Mayor McCaskrin was then called on
for a few remarks.
For a Booh t th' C'luli.
The organization of a boosters club
was suggested by Mayer Levi. Such
an organization could do much to ad
vertise the .city, and the suggestion
met with favor at the meeting last eve
ling. The suggestion will be acted
ipon in the near future, it is expected.
The meeting concluded by a brief
address by President Myers, in which
'ie expressed his appreciation of the
cooperation of the members during the
past year, and outlined briefly the aims
of the association for the coming year.
