i puny of ;75 at Banquet.
The city and county Sunday school
rally held yesterday afternoon and
evening at the Broadway Presbyter
ian church was one of the most suc
cessful and host attended affairs ef
its kind ever held here. " At tho ban
quet which was served in the Sun
day school rooms in the evening,
uoine 375 people were present, mak
ing the. largest numher that has ever
sat at a hamiuet at the church. Of
thi.i numher ahout 173 were from
jMolinc. Enthusiasm fcr the work of
the rally was evident on all sides and
it is the hope of all the delegates
that eonsklerahle Rood will result
from the meeting. Dining the cour:;e
of the hamiuet, a numher of musical
selections were rendered in which
the Arhtn quartet. .Miss liertha and
Arthur Jonass-en, and Mrs. II. E. Van
Du.er and Harvey E. Curtis look
part. The latter two rendered a cop
net duet, aud the other numbers were
Ilrnr IIiikIi rk.
After the hantiet was over, the
banqueters repaired to the auditor
ium of Hie church and listened to an
:uldress by Hush Cork of Chicago
whose subject was "House to House
Visitation." Mr. Cork is secretary
of the international visitation com
mit tee and he has been in the work
for some three years, making him ad
mirably fitted to explain the details
of the work done in making home to
house visits. He is an excellent
speaker and his talk was very in
structive. In his talk, he told of some of the
work which has been done in other
cities in the line of house to house
isiiation. In Philadelphia, he said.
I.'hmVOO people had received calls
in one day from T,Mo people who
were engaged in the work of making
visits for church purposes. It took
considerable organization work to
outline plans whereby all those visits
could be made by so many different
people, but it shows how thoroughly
the work can bo dune, lie advocated
I'M t tins the visitation work in the
hands of the city union, and he ex
pressed a hope that the task would
be undertaken here shortly.
Objrrtn of Visitation.
Tho object of tho visitation, as he
explained it, is to make a" canvas:; of
the people in a city, in order to find
out their preferences and to gel
them into church, not any especial
church but ino the. chinch which
they prefer. This is no small task,
but it is rendered much easier by a
systematic canvas. If the city'union.
composed of delegates from all the
different denominations in the city.
takes up the work, it should appoint
some one to supervise t lie work in

each of the wards cf the city. These
supervisors, in turn appoint those
who make the house to house vis
its. These latter call uncn everv fam
ily in their districts and learn their
preferences as to what church they
would rather attend. Their names
are then handed in to the city uuion
and the different ministers and
church workers are put in possession
of the knowledge thus gained and
they are given a clear idea of where
they will meet with success in try
ins to brins new members into the
fold Among the suggestions' made
towards making the canvass more
successful was one to the effect that
the visits take place in the afternoon,
preferably on Saturday afternoon.
The visits seem to have more effect
oa that day and the result is shown
by tho increased attendance ia the
churches on the 'following day.
Ask Alliance to Art.
After V.x. Cork had completed his
talk, the delegates who were present,
voted to bring the matter of holding
a house to house visitation in iiiis city
before the Ministerial alliance and to
psk it to take charge of the affair.
Such a canvass has just recently been
o:ni leted in Moline anil the dele
gates to the rally from the city were
mthusiastie as to the go-id results to
be gnined by such a course. C. S.
Trevor, provident of the Moline city
::nion make a short talk on what ha
been done in Moline and issued a cor
dial and pressing invitation to the poo
h; of this city to be present at the
county Sunday school raljy which will
be behl at Prospect park this summer
In tho cour&e of the evening, short
,tal!;s wer made by Hev. V. H. Clem
mer, president of the city union. II. E
Van Pnzer and Dr. J. Arthur Hurley
of Moline. Kev. W. B. Clemmer made
an earnest plea for a united action in
furthering tiie good offices of th-.j
church and the other gentlemen ex
pressed the same hope.

Attacking Transportation Lint;
in This Way.
A serious division of opinion hai
ari.-en among the directors and mem
bers of the Illinois Manufacturers' as
sociation regarding the policy to ho
pursued with respect to railroads.
The controversy has arisen as the r.--rult
of "legislative bulletin No. in,"
recently issued by
and the Burlington
th- Rock Island
roads tor alleged
I'pon the theory that such an aitact;
ii; "icurrilous and undignified" soni-
members of the association are cir
culating a petition addressed to .the
board calling upon that body to see
that no more circulars of llu chaiact-.-r
of the one in question are i:ii"d iv
the association. It is sail by sonv;
that tho petition Is meeting with gen
eral favor and that it is strung in de-
unciaiion of the statements made :1
the so-called ofTciidi'iir bulletin.
Although the ontroyersy is held a
serious one. there is no thought at
its present stage. that it vr ill threaten
uie existence or tiie association. Tin
situation is clearly outlined in-two
statements made ot Chicago yesterday
by members of the directory, who take
opposite views upon t lie subject,
llolil.t It Irrrlrvnnt.
The position of the faction which is
not in sympathy with the policy, as
evidenced by the bulletin, was out
lined by Director Rudolph Ortmann of
the Griflin Wheel company in thi.i
"There are many members of th
association who do not approve of
the couise which has been pursued.
We are not concerned wiili the
question of whether or not the
charges made in the bulletin arc true,
but we severely condemn their being
made upon the authority of the asso
ciation. Many of us regard the cir
cular as scurrilous and undigniiied as
well as illy advised and extremely un
wise. Our association is organized "o
promote tho welfare of the manufac
turers of Illinois and not to fling mud.
Mud slinging is not the way dignified
ind substantial business men win their

Another member of the directory,
.vho refused to permit the use of his

"When the association recently pass

Aould also cease agitation. Tiiat re
