Kew Knterprl n Talked f.
The regular nonthly meeting of the
Rock Islund Citi wns' Improvement asso
ciation was held in the rooms in Harper's
theatre building last evening and the at
tendance as well as the enthusiasm with
which all entered into every subject that
came up for iscussion demonstrated
fully that the sane pushing, unyielding
spirit which was responsible for the ac
complishing of so much for the solid ups
building of Rock Island last season is not
lacking this yea-. President Haas occu
pied the chair a id Secretary lledill was
at bis desk.
After regular rotitiue proceedings the
committees were called and the one on
consolidation, through its chairman, E.
II. Quyer, repored progress, outlining
the outcome of t le Moline meeting here
tofore fully reported and at which there
was a cordial inierchauge of views be
tween the members of the joint commit
tee and the adop .ion of the resolution that
consolidation is lesirb)e.
Mr. Oliver Oleon submitted the follow
ing resolution which was adopted unan
imously: Itemtlml, That considering the well
known public sp rit, ability aud energy of
the citizens of Chicago; that city's un
rivaled hotel, railroad, water and ter-
minttl facilities, its central location and
it tx-ing above all cities of this country a
typical representative American city, that
it is the sense of this association that it
is the most suitable place to hold the pro
posed world's exposition of 1893.
A communication was read from an
enterprise desiritg to locale In Rock Is
land, and referred to the committee on
manufactures, w th powers to act.
The subject of establishing a brick and
tile factory in Rock Island was brought
up by Mr. II. I). Folsom, who urged that
all efforts be dir jcted to that end. The
extensive brick ;aving oteralions which
Rock Inland has just entered upon, and
the fact that tie material is in abund
ance hereabouts, the shipping facilities
of the locality ill tend to encourage a
strong effort to establish a factory.
Mr. E. E. 1'armenter sustained Mr.
Polsom's views. He Itelieved Rock Is
land had only fairly entered upon its
paving operatioi s. He would like to see
the brick pavemi nt extended to the plow
works this fall, and would willingly pay
his proportion to have it done. To be
sure there are croakers why would op
pose and some vho would interpose ob
jections on the g -on lid of being too poor,
but the march of this enterprise involv
ing so distinctly the city's foremost in
terests, should not be checked on this
account. Let tl e pavement continue to
spread all over the city. Then there will
be a demand for brick factory here.
Messrs. Oliver Olson. E. II. Guyer,
Dr. W. A. Paul und Aid. Winslow How
ard also made remarks apropos to the
subject. The ol.i committee of the asso
ciation was Diu.lly continued with the
thanks of the association for past efforts
and the addition of another member.
The committee is now composed of
Messrs. E. H. (rtiyer, Phil Mitchell and
II. I). Folsom.
The plan of tuj association's work for
the coming fall and winter was outlined,
the principal enterprises to tie sought be
inq the removal of the Galena custom
house to Rock I dand. the viaduct at the
fool of Twenty-fourth street, the Union
depot and govoriment building and the
best plans of accomplishing these pur
poses were fretlv discussed and many
valuable suggestions made.
The names of Messrs. John Crubaugh
and J.seph Rotenfield. for membership
were mentioned and these gentlemen
unanimously elected, and upon motion of
Mr. R. Crampt in the association re
solved that the resident appoint a com
mittee of three 10 solicit new members.
Mr. Oliver Ols in offered the suggestion
that the commit. ees on the viaduct and
brick factory prpare to report at the
next meeting of the association and give
notice Ix-foreha id in the newspapers.
Mr. Olson Itelieved that the association
should have SMCilic objects to work to
and then it woul i accomplish more.
The association then adjourned.
A Mlolra llrr lilrntifled and Itr-

In the Erie co -respondence of the Alt
(ius of Septemlier , appeared an account
of the stealing of a horse from the pas
ture of Irving Morgan, just over the
Henry county line, the animal being the
property of John Snively, who had just
gotten it paid for. The horse a fine six
year-old mare was fully described in
tne same connt ction, and this fact it is
now revealed led to the recapture of the
horse. Yesterday Mr. J. I). Walker, a
friend of Mr. Snively, came to Rock Is
land in search of any possible trace of
the horse. Anxng those whom he called
upon was the liveryman, Mr. W. .1.
Kerr, who waa not long in putting him
on to the location of the horse. Mr.
Kerr, after reading the description in the
Arous rememlN red it. He has a great
eye for horses and the moment he sees
one sizes it up fiom head to tail and notes
its every characteristic at a eUnce. A few
days since he saw attached to one
of the delivery wagons of Long's grocery,
a horse answering the description of the
stolen animal. 1 he more he saw the horse
the more be becrnne satisfied that be bad
"called the turn" correctly, but the
circumstances led him to keep his
own counsel. Hut yesterday when Mr.
Walker visited t im he told him he be
lieved he knew '? here the horse was, and
to this Mr. WalUer replied that there was
$50 in it if he could point it out.
As luck would have It the horse was at
that moment dr ven by.
"There is th horse to which I have
reference now," said Mr. Kerr.
"And it it the one I am after as sure as
I live" said Mr. Walker, who at once tel
e phoned to Geneseo for a marshal, and
that official in company with Mr. Snively
came to Rock Island last night. Mr.
Walker, it seems, and his wife bad been
visiting in Moline and there Mr. Walker
boarded the train on which the marshal
and Mr. Snively were coming to Rock Isl
and and on the way a scheme was fixed
up to recover the horse without paying
Mr. Kerr for the important part he had
taken. They called on Mr. Long, from
whom they learned that a week ago to
day he had purchased the horse for f 35
from a man who stated that be was
bound west, was a little hard up and was
obliged to dispose of his horse though be
must do so reluctantly. The description
of the man answered that of Ham Good
rich, of Hillsdale, who was noted in the
Arous correspondence of yesterday from
that place, as missing under suspicious
circumstances.and who had been from the
first the supposed thief.
The three gentlemen made a satisfacto
ry settlement with Mr. Long and took
their horse, thus entirely ignoring Mr.
Kerr, who, by the aid of the Argus, had
been the chief instrument in locating the
stolen property. It was an ungrateful
act, to say the least.
A YOUNG FEMALE THIBK.
Officers Boland and Carlson arrested a
girl fourteen years of age, named Flor
ence Anderson, whose father lives near
Hillsdale, and who bad bsen employed in
Richard Hill's hotel at that place, and
from whom Marshal Miller had recived a
message in the afternoon to arrest the
girl for larceny on her arrival here. The
girl hsd stolen $30 from nenry Krum
line, a boarder at Hill's tavern, and
skipped out. While in the custody of
the police she attempted to throw away
a roll of bills which contained $19. and
this she confessed as all she had left of
the stolen money. This morning she
told Magistrate Wivill the name of
the person to whom she had given
the rest and it was recovered, and
she was hound over in the sum of
$200. The esse is a really pitiful one,
and there seems but one alternative to
send the girl to the reform school.
A THIKR CAPTURED AT GENRSEO.
This morning Sheriff Silvia received
word that James A. Bennett, of Carbon
Cliff, indicted by the grand jury shortly
just before its adjournment Wednesday
for on the previous day robbing the till of
Clark Corbin's store at Carbon Cliff of
$15. The sheriff traced him to Geneseo
and telegraphed there for his arrest.

spring of 1857, establishing a wholesale
and retail grocery. He afterward dis
posed of the retail department and em
barked in the wholesale trade exclusively
and his business became known all over
the west. Later his three sons C. J.,
A. C. and W. IL became associated
with him. and jn 1869 Mr. Dart sold out,
and since July, 1881, his home has
been on the Pacific slope. In 1877 Mr,
W. II. Dart died, and the Messrs. C. J.
and A. C. have since conducted the
business which has grown to immense
Mr. Dart was twice married. His first

Mr. Dart remarried eighteen years ago,
bis aecond wife beinR formerly Mrs.
Lucy E. Duwe. of Davenport, whose
death occurred in April, 1888. at San
Jose, and since that time Mr. Dart has
made his home with his second wife's
daughter, Mrs. C. E. Fleming, of that
city, where his death occurred.
Mr. Dart was in bis day one of the
most energetic and successful business
men of the Mississippi valley. His busi
ness career won him wide esteem.
