THE HOCK ISLAND AUGUS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28, Iin9.
THE PROGRESSIVE BODY.
A Little Letter Treat feretary

Secretary T. J. Medill. or the Rock Isl
and Citizens' Improvement association,
hat addressed a circular letter to the
members of that body on tbe opening of
the second year of its useful existence,
When we oooslder tbe great amount of
good our association bas been tbe means
of causing, in tbe shape of tbe paving of
Second avenue, tbe wonderful sidewalk
improvements, the adoption of tbe spec
ial assessment and special taxation ordi
nance, and the appropriation of 12,600
for tbe purpose of beautifying Lmon
outre, also the large amount of prospec
tive improvements, such as free bridges
over Kock river, tho viaduct on Twenty
fourth street at the end of tbe Rock Inl
and bridge, tbe Union depot, the custom
bouse and many others we can justly reel
that our efforts have not been in vain.
Everv member of tbe association well
knows that if it had not been for tbe
Improvement association during the last
year, we would have had no permanent
We consider what has been done mere
ly a begiomag. and with proper support
from our citizens, and well directed ef
for on the part of the associa
tion, we can pi are Rock Inland for
ward in the rank of cities, to where Its
location warrants it.
But we must have assistance, and ear
nestly hope that you will help us in
crease the membership of the association
by explaining its objects to others, and
instead of decreasing the membership,
we will then Increase it.
This organization bas become such a
factor in the city's growth and upbuild
ing, working in harmony and conformity
with tbe common council, and bearing
the respect and good will of the munici
pal legislators, that the latest thing that
has been heard against it is a remark on
the part of a former member that be did
not propose to continue bis membership
any longer, because tbe association was
doing too much, and pushing tbe town
ahead, and so revolutionizing things that
the town would not know its former self.
That kind of a member is better out of
tbe association than in it. There1 is no
room anywhere in Rock Island for
a pcTton who can't keep out of tbe
way of its advancement, and it is be
cause the Improvement association is
going to keep things turning over that
its membership will increase, rather than
decrease as it should.
It is a fact that will be of interest to
tbe members of the association that sat
isfactory arrangements have been made
with Secretary T. J. Medill by which be
remains in tbe ssme capacity another
sap) lac a Trade Stark.

Patten, enclosed in your fsvor of tbe
20th ult.. has been received. I note tbe
following script on same, towit: "Young

time-consistent with tborongh work and
at the least expeose. Private or class
instruction, day and evening throughout

edge and consent, from an engraving
made from copy executed by me. Copy
for the cut used by Messrs. Wood Jt Van

fice, a recent number of which contained
the engraved plate made from my work.
I denounce tbe deception In thus appro

credit. It may not be amiss to remark
here that Prof. Armstrong has a copy

A system of pooling engineers, which
will eventually be extended to the short
er runs, went into (fleet on tbe C. B. A
O, at noon Sunday. Tbe main reason
that bas impelled the rou'pany to adopt
pooling Is to get more work out of tbe
engines in busy times with less fatigue
to tbe enginemen. As it is at present, a
crew bas a particular locomotive, and in
busy seasons this locomotive may have to
make two or three successive trips. The
enginemen, after the fatigue of the first
trip, are in no condition to stand the fa
tigue of the othrrs. They become tired
out, and the liability to accident is thus
tbe greater. An ofllcial of the road, in
speaking of this, says that when be ran
under this sort of a regime of successive
trips with his engine, be not infrequently
became so utterly worn out that he could
only with great difficulty keep from go
log to sleep even while on his feet. Un
der the new system, after delivering tbe
engine to the roundhouse, the enginemen
will have a chance to rest, while another
crew, whoso turn it is, will take the loco
motive next trip.
ew letter Hoaee.
A new letter box bas been adopted by
the government. The style now in use
Is deemed objectionable because of the
facility with wbicb rouberies can be per
petrated and the fact that it Is not weath
er proof. The new style has no visible
opening for the reception of letters, but
there are two knobs at tbe top, by push
ing down on either one of which on open
ing is exposed by the revolving of a
hinged plate. This connects with a tray,
and as soon as tbe knob is released tbe
tray falls down and drops the letter be
low. There are two compartment- to
each letter box, and it is impossible to
get at tbe lower compartment, in which
all letters are dumped by the tray, until
the box is opened by the carrier. The
new style will gradually supersede the
old style, as the present boxes wesr out.

THE EPWORTII LEAGUE.
Abj Orcaalkatlea rerfrrtee at the 91.
K. Caanp Xeetlas Ita Farpeaa.
About three hundred people assisted in
the organization of an Epworth league
for the Rock hlatfd district, at the Meth
odist camp meeting in Tindall's grove on
the closing day of the camp meeting.
The following officers were elected :
President Addis Albro, Moliae.
Vice President W. B. Stioup, Port
Corresponding Secretary Lillis Mar
Recording Secretary-- Lizzie Carnahan,
Treasurer Mattie Sewell. Ualva.
Revs. Addis Albro and F. II. dim
ming, tbe last named from Goneseo.wero
elected delegates to the district conven
tion to be held at Indianapolis, Ind., be
ginning last night, and Rev. Albro left
for that city on the noon train.
Tbe motto of tbe league is: "Look Up:
Lift Up." The badge is composed of a
white ribbon with scarlet thread, on a
maltese cross. It is a very pretty em
blem. Moline bas no local league of that
name, but an Oxford league, tbe pur
poses of which are the same, and this
will be merged into tbe Epworth. From
an Epworth leaflet before us tbe forma
tion and objects of tbe league are ex
The Epworth league was instituted
at a conference of representatives of all
Uie general young people's societies in the
tietnooist Episcopal church held in
Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday and Wed
nesday, May 14th and 15th, 1889. The
following societies were represented by
accredited delegates: The Young Peo
ple's Methodist alliance, the Oxford
League, tbe Young People's Christian
League, tbe Young People's Methodist
Union, and the Young People's Episcopal
alliance of the North Ohio conference.
Each society and its features were duly
presented, a spirit of mutual concession
was shown, and after thorough discus
sion and earnest prayer, it was unani
mously resolved that all existing socie
ties be merged into one new society for
tbeentire church, to be called tbe Ep
The object of the Epworth League is
to promote an earnest. Intelligent, prac
tical and loyal spiritual life in the young
people of our church, to aid thera in
constant growth in grace, and in tbe at
tainment of purity of heat.
In its Captain Doyle the Peoria ball
club bas the most inveterate and most
unreasonable kicker in America. There
seems to be a sort of internal connection
between bis jaw and bis beel and be
can't open his mouth without sending
forth a kick. . If he'd happen to knock
the ball over the fence for a home run
he'd abuse the umpire because be would
not allow him to keep on running around
the bases and registering a home run
every time until the sphere was returned
to tbe field. He has thoroughly dis
gusted the audiences in every city in the
inter-state league snd is despised in all
of them, he seems to be placing himself
in tbe same attitude before the fair
minded people of Peoria. Speaking of
Monday's game there, tbe Transcript bas
Doyle was fined $10 and taken from
the field in the last half of tbe eighth
inning. Tbe umpire bad just had a lit
tle till with "Me Boy'' Sirolhers. when
Doyle chipped in and was requested by
Mr. Levis to desist, which he refused to
do, whereupon a fine of i It) was assessed
against him and the warning given that
if he persisted in his talk he would lie re
moved from the field. Doyle retorted by
tening tne umpire to 'shut up, and go
on with the game, when time was called
and the demand made for a substitute,
which was finally acceded to by Kartson
going to center, Hoffman taking Doyle's
place and tbe latter going to tbe bench.
This is tbe first instance of the kind re
corded here this season, but the action of
Levis is universally commended.
One of the Itest nominations for second
place on the state ticket yet made by the
democratic press is that of A. P. Mc
Ouirk. of Davenport. Well known
throughout the stale. popular everywhere,
brainy and liberal, filled with progressive
ideas and possessed of a full knowledge
of what goes to make an able presiding
officer, Mr. McOuirk's name would add a
tower of strength to the ticket. The
fight this fall It to tie a hot one, and keen
sighted. quick-wpaVd, aggressive leaders
are needed. One of these tbe eloquent
Dtvenporter should Ite. He possesses
tbe essential qualifications of heart and
mind, combined with an enviable popu
larity, the latter quality one which of
times plays a part as important as either
of the other two in a hard-fought cam
paign. No matter who of Iowa's promi
nent democrats la selected lor firot place,
with Mr. McOuirk's name associated with
him, the ticket is certain to lie made both
better and stronger. Burlington (luzttte
