The proposition to consolidate the
cities of Rock It land and Moline, seems
to be meeting with considerable favor in
Moline as well as in Rock Island, and
there, too, the tiore sensible view seems
to be taken. A gentleman who is inter
ested in one of the most prominent man
ufacturing industales there, but whose
home is in this city, in conversation with
an Aroos repres ntaiive the other morn
"I am most henrtily in favor of the con
solidation, and p irticularly am I favora
ble to the adoption of the name of Rock
Issand. I'll tell vou why: Much as has
been the gain of Moline in point of dis
tinction through its many and varied
Industries, Rock Island is, by its advan
tageous location, its great railroad and
river facilities, the government arsenal,
etc., the better known city. I will cite
an illustration of this that came under
my own observation and experience and
by the way it is only one of a great many
such similar incidents that have come to
my attention. Not long ago while trav
eling in the west, making one of my reg
ular business trips I registered at a hotel
in a growing wentorn city, as from Mo
line. In a conversation with a citizen
there one evening. I was asked by him
as to the location of Moline. 'Why,'
said I, 'it is three miles east of Rock Isl
and, and a manufacturing city that does
not take a back scat to any in the country-'
'Oh, I know where Rock Island is
well enongh,' the gentlemen replied, 'but
I never heard of Moline before. "
"So this, you ttee, is the reason, that
while ray bnsint ss interests are all in
Moline, I would lather have the consoli
consolidated. Moline, while famous as a
dated city called P ock Island it they are
manufacturing city, is known only to the
dealer not the consumer, and Rock Isl
and is known to all. So you see It would
be mutually ad vat tageous to unite under
the name of Rook Island. Moline in
dustries might preserve their trade marks
just the same, though the city's name
would be Rock Island."
"Rock Island in the county scat, the
larger city, too, acd always will be. It is
directly on tbo river, is a terminal rail
road point, has one of the greatest trunk
lines in the world earned after It, as well
as the Island of Rock Island, and is in
my estimation det .incd to be a great city
if not a metropolis."

The St. Paul road is said to have begun
a very aggressive retrenchment policy in
the hope of getting back some of the
money they lost .ast year. They have
begun to cut the pay of their employes.
and greater reduci ions are expected to
follow. A St. Paul disDatch says:
"For soma mont as railroad men have
been predicting a reduction of salaries on
certain northwestern railroad lines as the
next step in the move for retrenchment,
which has been f alt through the entire
winter, but it will (cession no litue sur
prise that the old and time-tried Milwau
kee road should be the first to put such a
plan into effect. Li.st Wednesday a secret
order went forth reducing wages of a
large number of employes 331 per cent.
It is understood that the reduction is
confined principally to the agents and
cl;rks, of which .be road employs a
small army. At tie same time there is
feelirig that all the other em
ployes of the r md will be called
upon fcbortly to sliare in the retrench
ment so liberally begun. Coming
as it does just after the preliminary an
nouncement of the bad financial condi
tion of the road the cut has an especial
significance. A special meeting of the
board of directors of the company has
been called for next Tuesday In Milwau
kee. Such a call is quite unprecedented
in the history of the road. It has given
rise to the belief thU the dissatisfaction
with the management of the road haB
taken a definite fort i, and some develop
ments of a Btartlit g nature are looked
for. A curious thing about the present
reduction of salaried is that is retroac
tive, the order having been issued on the
0th to take effect on the 1st."

goes into effect on the C, R. I. & P. to

Mrs. . 8. Webber and the Misses
Webber gave a highly entertaining and
appreciative entertainment at their home
on El a. street last evening, to a company
of about one hundred friends. It par
took of the nature of a reception and re
cital, Mr. Hannibal A. Williams giving
the complete text of the bright comedy.
The Taming of the Shrew," introducing
all the various characters distinctly and
representing the different scenes. It was
a most elegant affair und the achievement
on the part of Mr. Williams was one of
extraordinary merit. Refreshments were
afterward served. The flloral decora
tions were profuse and beautiful.
An Indecent Brute.
A number of children were passing
through one of the tavlnes west of Elm
street on their way aome from school
yesterday, afternoon when they were ap
proached by a dark complected man
about fifty years of age, who stopped
them and made an indecont exposure.
The children were shocked and fled, and
the brute escaped. It is such 'outrages
as this that encourage white caps, and
make their deeds less lawless la the eyes
of the public.
A sunbeam of joy entered the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Eli Moienfeldet this moras

The Boston Quintette club concert com

country, gave one of its concerts at the
opera house last night before a cultured
and critical audience that filled the lower
part of the house and a good part of the
The first number on the programme
was a quintette by Mendelssohn that was
played with such exquisite shading and
expression as to hold the audience en
tranced. The finely balanced power, the
individual talent and the perfect ensem

and general reading of the music were
points in the performance of the first

Miss Ann Carpenter, a lady of rare per
sonal attractions and of charming man
ner, with a voice that is a dramatic so
prano, full in quality of tone, followed
with a solo which wa9 faultlessly ren
dered. In response to an enthusiastic
encore, she sang a charming selection in
a charming manner.
A quarteete by Beethoven preceded the
gem of the evening, violincello solo by
Mr. Blumenberg. This, the most difficult
or all instruments to master, is bandied
by this gentleman as few ever learn to
use it. His cadenzas, slurs and harmon
ics were as brilliant and as difficult as is
possible to conceive. Few violinists pro
duce such effects on their instruments as
does Mr. Blumenberg on his. He was
encored, and the music of the last note
he drew from his instrument will linger
in the memory of his hearers for years
Miss Carpenter gave another superb
solo In which she showed a most perfectly
cultivated voice, aad the delightful even

Holme in Chlraco.
The Chicago Ilerald has this of C. B.
Holmes, president of the tri-city street
Any one who has seen C. B. Holmes
drive his rig through the streets can well
believe that he is in favor of rapid transit.
Mr: Holmes is president of the South Side
cable road, and is one of the most expert
drivers in town. He can get through
bigger crowds and smaller holes with his
rig than almost any one else in town.
He used to drive an old bugcrv which was
sturdy enough to rip the driving wheel off
or a locomotive in a collision, and it was
pulled by a sptinkinz team. When the
State street road was in course of con
struction he used to (ret in that old buggy
and drive along the torn-up street, going
over hills of concrete, mountains of iron,
and billows of mud like a skip in a heavy
sea. And be has never had an accident
How he drives his lively team to a little
inclosed carriage like a doctor's rig, and
the way be escapes collisions aud gets
over the ground is a caution. He drives
as he walks on the jump.
