Where Building Is Needed.
Saturday evening Moline closed a
whirlwind campaign for $125,000 for
a new Y. M. C. A. building. For just a

was a new experience ior, me peopie or.
Moline to see all classes of citizens
working together and boosting united
ly for a public project.
That was the thing which made it
possible, however, for Moline to raise
not only the desired amount in the
quick campaign, but to run $10,000 over
the mark. When the returns were in
Saturday night it developed that near
ly $135,000 had been pledged alto
gether. This vast sum of money includes
gifts ranging all the way from 15 cents
to $20,000. There were more than
4,000 different subscriptions made in
all. The people of wealth did their
part generously, but the multitude of
people of small means did their full
share also. There were thousands of
pledges in small amounts from men
and women who did their best because
they felt the need of the new build
ing. Probably not less than 2,000
pledges came in from the factories

The Moline association on Saturday
i had the good fortune to sell its old
building to the Red Men for $20,000.
After taking out the amount of the
debt on the building the association
will still have about $10,000 left, which
will be set aside as a contingent fund
from which many expenses will be
paid, in order to preserve the building
A new era of prosperity and expan

work in Moline, which will mean much
to the future of that city. The men
have the honor of having broken sev

will now be in order for them to break
other records in the work they will do.

handled in Illinois outside of Chicago,
and one of the quickest big campaigns
on record anywhere. The city has the
largest amount to spend for a building
that has been available in the 6tate
outside of Chicago, so it will no doubt
have the finest and biggest building of
any of the cities downstate.
Example- for Rock Island.
In doing what it has done, Moline has
set a good example for Rock Island to
follow. With a situation worse, if pos
sible, so far as its association record
was concerned, than that of Rock Is
land, Moline has buried the past and
gone ahead in this great movement for
civic betterment. Rock Islaud needs
to do the same sort of thing.
A year ago there were not three men
in Moline who believed that this great
thing could be done, but today every
body ia glad for the faith of those few.
Similarly, in Rock Island, today not
more than one or two men have abso
lute faith in the ability of this city to
"ALMA, WO WOHNST DU ?''
"Alma, Wo Wchnst Du?" (Alma,
Where Do You Live?) is the title
of the operetta to be presented for
the first time In this city Wednes
day evening at the Illinois theatre
by the Adolph Philipp company. This
comedy has been running in New
York for two seasons and is still pop
ular there. It is a free adaptation
from the French of Paul Herve b
Adolph Philipp, the music being by
Jean Briquet. One of the numbers,
the "Alma" waltz, is described as
another "Merry Widow" waltz. The
little opera will be presented here by
an exceptional company, headed bj
Miss Cora Morena, said to be a beau
tiful and fascinating German sing
ing comedienne, who will appear as
Alma Dufaur, the dashing heroine.
Besides the "Alma" waltz there are
other numbers that will linger in
memory, such as "Der Srhwartzen
Kater," (The Biack Cat and "wei
ber, Weiber," (Women, Women). It
is claimed the dramatic action in this
operetta is so continuous and its
aim so universal that it is not neces
sary to understand one word of Ger
man to grasp its meaning or enjoj
"THE FLIRTING PRINCESS."
The things that stand forth in
Harry Bulger's company presenting
Mort II. Singer's "The Flirting Prin
cess" and make it one of the sea
son's successes, are the novelties
some of them very daring. The tune
ful music ever found in Mort Sing
er's productions abounds from over
ture to finale and it runs through the
piece in most entertaining bewilder
ment and fashion. The plot is strong
enough to make one think and the
dialogue is of the usual order so
common to good musical farces. Still

call it on its visit here a year ago.
is something out of the ordinary. It
is full of delightful features and
shines resplendently as a costume
and beauty show. In fact, the cos
tumes are ravishingly beautiful and
have seldom been outdone in any ol
Mr. Singer's former productions.
The chorus and dancing girls, wheth
er they be the statuary like beauties
or the dainty broilers, look like mod
els in face and form. Two features
connected with Mr. Bulger's starring
vehicle ' are "The Vampire"- and
"Apache" dances. The first named
dance in the first act is so wild,
weird and dreamy, with the accom
paniment of languorous music, that
it falls upon the spectator as a hid
eous nightmare, albeit its beauty
chains the senses. It is as Kipling
wrote it and Philip Burne-Jones
transferred to canvas. "The Apache"

Local nulliliDK White Elephant.
Rock Island must have a new Y. M.
C. A. building. The present one is a
disgrace to the public spirit of the com
munity. It is a white elephant, so far
as the association work is concerned.
The only sensible and business-like
way to deal with the situation is to
sell the old building, raise $75,000 or
$100,000 more, and put up a building
that will be fit for the great work that
is to be done. With Moliue's success
as an inspiration, Rock Island ought to
go ahead and do it without a bit of

I says she has acted every kind of

man. She has been villainous and
star, played comedy and tragedy, but
her forte is childish bits. And as a
demure little Quakeress in "The Girl

ceptionally well cast. Resides being
very pretty and childish. Miss Mcln

Miss Mable Mailumn was warbling
"Has Any One a Kiss to Spare?"
As she riveted her orbs towards the
box in which the Rock Island mayor
and his friends were seated Mr. Mc
Caskrin said he was game. The
young woman, not to be daunted,
danced to the edge of the box and
there was nothing for the mayor to
do but stand pat which he did.
Miss Mailumn, returning to the
center of the stage, proceeded with
the song, and she concluded the last
verse, asked the mayor If he had
any objection to a return engage

Mayor McCaskrin, it will be re

arrested and given a ride in the

means for the establishing and main
