promoting this big meeting, wish it

sire to attend.
SPREADING THE SiEWS.
Executive Secretary Clapp will go
to Muscatine tomorrow night to speak
at a booster meeting there and line
up a good delegation from the down
river city to the tri-city convention.
Deputations o f men will also pre

a meeting is being arranged for at
East Moline for Friday evening.
R, C. Smedley, secretary of the ex
ecutive committee, will go to Galva

cities together with Cambridge it is
ery man sign up. The committee '
feel that it is not too much to expect
that at least one-half of the church
men register. In other places hun
dreds of men registered who were not-'
identified with the churches, and it is
to be hoped that many more than
have done so will sign up at once. To
men who have not registered the com
mittee would say, "D ionotw." To
those who are registered, "Get the
other fellow, and do it at once."

REGISTRATIONS TOO FFEW,
A large number of registrations
were received in the office of the
covement at 214 Safety building, yes
terday, but the number already enroll
ed for the convention is entirely too
small to satisfy the executive commit
tee of business men who are behind
this movement. Waterloo had over
800 delegates with less men to draw
from than are in the vicinity of Rock
Island, and the committee here are
very anxious that the registrations ex
ceed that of Waterloo. They are not
asking whether men believe in mis
sions, nor anyone of a hundred other
questions, but they are asking earn
