The third annual Rock Island county
exposition opens one month from to
day, and all indications point to the
biggest event that has yet been pulled
off at Exposition park, providing our
old enemy, the weather, manages to be
good this year.
As heretofore stated, the directors
have already booked three big acts, in

In addition, there will be as part o!

program, running races, which will
bring the best stables in this part of
the country to Rock Island.
A pyrotechnic display surpassing the
features of this nature of former years
will be given three nights during the
week, and the gorgeous system of illu
mination, which has heretofore been
one of the distinctive features of the
exposition, will be enlarged and elab

fund of $5,000, which must be deposited
in a bank before the contract is closed.
The original committee, however,
which had the soliciting of subscrip

success in its canvass for a renewal of
the subscriptions then made, the idee
being that to have the aerial exhibi

Combination That Reaches Down to

They are playing inside politics to a
Cn'sh in the republican party in Rock
Island county these days. The latter
lay boom for former Mayor B. F. Knox
for state senator is one- of the import
ant phases of the situation. In Rock
Island at least, and It is believed that
throughout the county, there is a
strong undercurrent of sentiment fav
orable to the Knox candidacy as a well
merited recognition of long and faith
ful service to the party.

ate has always been one of the laudable
ambitions of the ex-mayor of Rock Is
land, and last evening a number of con
ferences were held in his behalf. All
kinds of pressure has, on the other hand,
been brought to bear to induce the Rock
Is'and politician not to consent to the
use of his name, and this may be suc
cessful. In such an event, however, it

Landee, in the meantime, scared

Victor Engel, a west end lad, was
sent to the county jail this morning
for Ave days by Police Magistrate C.
J. Smith, who found ' the defendant
guilty of assault and battery, the
charge being preferred against him by
Charles W. Londberg. Albert Kimbel,
who was also implicated in the fight,
was fined $25 and costs, but the fine
was suspended pending his good beha

best a few weeks ago to start a fight
between the complainants and others
residing in the west end. He finally
succeeded in drawing Lundberg into a
fight with Kimbel and himself. The
fight was a small affair, and as Engel
was the instigator and aggressor all
the way through, he was dealt with ac
