THE ROCK ISLAND' ARGUS
TUESDAY, JANUARY 25, .1910.
:' ; - .
biscuss Project in Annual Meet
ing Held Last Evening at
MAJORITY IN FAVOR OF IT
Will Be Held in Conjunction With
Third Exposition Officers of
" Rock Island will have a home-coming
week this year if plans laid at the an
nual meeting of the Rock Island Busi
ness Men's association held last night
materialize. President E. B. McKown
"was authorized to select a committee
of three to investigate the manner of
conducting a home-coming, as It has
been tried in other cities, and to find
but just what success has been met
"It was suggested, and was the sense
o the meeting, that the affair take
place in conjunction with the third an
nual Rock Island exposition. Thes-?
two affairs coming together would boost j
each other and would result in more )
strangers and old residents being in i
the city than have ever been here be-
fore at one time. The advertising that j
the city would get would also be great
and much to be desired in every way.
All the principal officers had given such
satisfaction during the past year that
the rules were suspended and . they
were unanimously reelected by ac
clamation. They are as follows:
President E. B. McKown.
Vice President H. A. Clevenstine. .
Secretary Ralph V. Laniont.
Treasurer E. B. Kreis.
Directors G. W. Kingsbury and Ed
Preceding the election, officers sub
mitted reports for the year just closed.
The reports showed a growth in the
organization in point of membership j
and interest shown, ana tne nope ior
an even better year in 1910 was ex
pressed. A scheme Is now on foot to
hold monthly meetings of the associa
tion instead of quarterly.
Favor Commlulon llan.
George II. Kingsbury inrtoduced a
i resolution favoring the commission
form of city government and calling
for the association to go on record as
its exponent in Rock Island. The res
olution passed without a dissenting
vote. The organization will use its
power to aid the passage of the bill
now pending in' the legislature which
proposes to give cities the right to
adopt the plan If they see fit, and if
the bill is passed, as it is generally be
lieved It will, the association will do
what It can to bring the matter before
the voters of Rock Island.

consistently, no more games will be
played. There is still enough ma
terial at the association to make a
corking good team, although Robb

positions during the year, have quit,
Boxlnjc Class Haa 10 Members.
The boxing class of the Y. M. C
A. now numbers IB members. The
class started out a few weeks ago
with just enough members to make
it worth while, but of late the at
tendance hhs been all that wan de
sired by the officers of the associa
tion. At least 10 of the members
are present for their lessons on

Those present at the meeting last ev- , . ,
ening were almost unanimous in favor
of the scheme, provided they can be
L shown that it will meet with the ap
'proval of the majority of the member
ship. The home coming proposition has
been discussed1 from year to year in
Rock Island for some time and it is
gratifying to note that the Business
Men's asociatlon has taken hold of
the matter which on this occasion
was brought before that representa
tive body, by Edward Bauersfield.
Plan for Banquet.
The annual banquet of the associa
tion will be held In March and com
mittees will be appointed this week to
take care of the details of the affair.
The date for the banquet has not been
fixed as yet, but It will come after the
annual state convention of retail busi
ness men, and features on the program
will be reports from Secretary Charles
Goff and others who will represent the
local association at the meeting. The
convention will be held at Cairo Feb.
15. 16 and 17, and Rock Island is en
titled to seven delegates.
It is planned to secure good speak
ers from out of the city to be with the
association on the evening of the ban
quet and to give them the principal
places on the program.
Mayer Levi Talk.
The association discussed several
different projects during the evening,
some little time being devoted to the
...commission plan of government. This
,'same matter will come up again at a
special meeting of the association
which will be held during the latter
, part of February or early in March.
During the course of the evening
Mayer Ievi spoke to the membership
on the subject of the industrial com
mission of this city. He reviewed to
some extent the plans and accomplish
ments of the organization as were
shown in his annual report which was
submitted some time ago. In regard
' to the payment of the subscriptions to
' the booster fund, he said, he was meet
ing with great success.
The meeting marked the be
gining of a new year for the organ
ization, and accordingly officers to head
it during the coming year were elected.

After that there was no more prac

at Muscatine. . They succeded in de

was their last victory. The high
