The Second Annual Industrial Fair
at the Rink.
Opeainc Laat Evening or tb. Winter
ExpoMltlon of the Boclt Island In
dustrial Home Assoclatln -Addresses)
by theSIayor and Other.
The second annual fair of the Rock
Island Industrial Home association began
at the skating rink last evening. Bleuer's
band preceded the executive committee
and city officials to the hall, where Presi
dent J. W. Cavanaugh, Mayor Blandlng,
City Clerk Koebler. City Attorney Mc
Euiry, Aldermen 111, Negus, Hampton
and Simmon, and President Hass, of the
Citizens' Improvement association, occu
pied seats on the platform.
After music by the band, President
Cavanaugh introdnced Mayor Blandiog,
who formally opened the fair as the
representative of the city, congratu
lating the committees and the working
men generally upon the grand success
both financial and otherwise, which had
crowned their initiatory effort laat year,
and expressing the confidence he felt
that the present exhibit would prove
even more sucoessful than the preceding
oae. It was to be hoped the exhibition
was to become a permanent feature. It
would certainly become of great value
and advantage to the city as its soope
and extent continued to enlarge with each
recurring season, while the educational
and other bene fits resulting to the work
ing people themselves from the industrial
home to be erected were inestimable and
such as to encourage the assistance of
every resident of the city.
Rev. G. W. Gue was the next speaker.
Mr. Gue said be was glad to meet with
the men of toil. He always enjoyed
meeting with the people. All toil was
honorable and ho ftlt that be was a toiler
himself and therefore he was in sympa
thy with the people. The speaker dwelt
at length upon the American mode of
life and the wonderful possibilities af
forded to the workiegman by it, such as
were possible in no other country in the
world. When one looked into the face
of one of these kids here in the rink, be
didn't know but that boy might be a
future president of the United States.
The world was before the mechanic of
today. If he had no gold, no silver, yet
he had capital; it was his stock in tiade,
his brains, and it was equal to anything
in the world. They needed to organize
more perfectly. Organization was the
secret of capital power, and it was possi
ble for them to secure equal power in the
same way. When they were organized
perfectly tbey could ask for their rights
and get them too. He hoped the fair
would be a great success and that its pro
jectors would be successful in completing
the industrial home.
After music by the orchestra Mr. Wm-
Jackson followed in a happy address. He
Said be felt like the man who was too
busy to say his prayers, and so nailed
the Lord's prayer to his bedstead, saying
when the time for his nightly vesper
came, "Un, Liord, them s my sentiments.
Amen." Like him, he felt like re-echoing
what had been said before. He felt proud
to address the people on this occasion.
He recalled the same occasion a year ago,
and how forcibly the same determination
towara a common purpose had been
shown. lis success showed what oppor
tunities the workingmen of Rock Island
had missed in the last twenty five years.
Had they commenced at that lime
they might now have an industrial home
and annual exhibit, which would be of
untold value both to themselves and the
city. He considered the proiect grand in
its possibilities, and thought every citi
zen of the town should come out and
assist them to make It a success.
City Attorney McEniiy was called for
and made one of his usual pleasing ad
dresses, speaking in glowing terms of the
benefits to result from a successful com
pletion of the enterprise, comparing the
advantages enjoyed by poor people in
this country with those offered in foreign
lands. He felt sure the fair would be a
grand success, as it deserved to be.
Among the exhibitors are these:
M. & K., clothing, boots and shoes;
Crampton, fine wall paper and room
mouldings; Wheelan Bros., groceries; J.
T. Nofsfeer, stoves and hardware; Bailey
Davenport, coal; Kann & Fleming,

Ramser, jeweler; Miss Rose Loinloger,
fancy goods; H. F. Cordes, furniture and
Many of the apacos taken had not been
occupied last night and many of the other
exhibitors were not prepared for display,
but today most of these have baen com
pleted and many new spaces taken, and
the prospect Is that the fair will be in
full blast by tonight. The attendance
last evening was fair for the first night
and with the excellent programmes and
entertainments which will be offered
nightly, commencing tomorrow with the
home talent club.will be no doubt largely
increased and fully equal to that of last

been untiring in their efforts for the fair's
success, and it is to be hoped everybody
will go and assist the enterprise with
