The Arods several days kgo noted the
departure of a large number of Rock Isl
and delegates for Peoria to attend the
seventeenth annual convention of the Y.
M. C. A. of Illinois. The convention has
bad an active session, tbe prominent
members of the association In tbe state
being present. Tbe following offlceis
have been elected for the ensuing year

Second Assistant Secretary A. V.
From tbe annual report of the execu
tive committee, the following is taken:
At tbe last state convention it waa
voted tbat $13,000 be raised for tbia work
for tbe year 1880. This was a yery large
advance on the amount secured for any
previous year. For the year 1888
$8,591 40 was raised. Up to tbe present
time there has been pledged and guaran
teed for tbe year 1889 $11,000. Tbe ad
vance made has certainly been great and
such as to give encouragemet. There is.
however, one marked tendency which the
convention should notice. The following
table shows the total receipts for state
work for each year from 1882 to 1889 in
clusive, showing also the amount raised
from associations, individuals and other

be seen from these figures in
the earlier years a very large proportion
r tne support for this wotk among
young men of the state came from tbe
associations. In 1883 tbe association
gaye over seventy-six percent of all con
l touted for tbe general work. In 1838
this had fallen to less than thirty-two Der
cent; while in 1889 the proportion is even
less tbat is, while tbe expense of the
committee has increased fourfold since
1883, tbe amount received from assoeia
tions has scarcely increased at all. though
in that time the number of secretaries
employed has increased from thirty-four
to sixty-two, and the number of points
where secretariis are employed has in
creased from twenty to thirty-five.
During tbe year one new ootnt. the
German department. Chicago, was
opened for a secretary through the assis
tance or nr. uiaus ciandt, or the inter
national committee. It is a very encour
aging thing that during the last four
years not a single secretarial point has
been lost, while In tbat time eleven new
points have been opened op for secretar
ies. There are now employed including
six in state work sixty-two secretaries
and assistants at thirty-rive points. The
vacancies wnicb existed at the time of
nnr last annual report, have all been
filled. The expenses of the committee
iluiine tbe past year bave amounted to
$10,685 43 Tbe items of expenditure
will appear in tbe tepori of tbe treasurer.
The committee recommends for the
coming year tbat the six secretaries now
mployed be continued in service; that
tbe convention authorize the raising of
$13,000 ss during the last year; that each
association be urged to contribute as an
association and tbat pledges be taken in
this convention for tbe largest possible
proportion of the full amount.
The annual repot t of the treasurer
shows receipts for the year amounting to
11,444.27; disbursements $11,415 83.
Messrs. E. B. McEown and J. D.
Warnock reached home from Peoria this
afternoon, having been in attendance up
on the convention. They report tbat tbe
attendance of delegates outside of tbe
Peoria association will reach 400. These
were entertained by tbe best families of
the city. The sessions are given to the
discussion of topics pertinent to the work.
special attention being paid to work
among railaoad men, colleges and boys'
work in connection with tbe local asso
ciations. Tbe convention is especially
favored by having in attendance and up
on its programme, such men as Mr. S. A.
Mean, of Chicago, treasurer of tbe Illinois
state work; Mr. E. 8t- John, general
managsr of the C, R. I. & P., who Is
prominent in promoting the T. M. C. A.
among railroad men; Dr. W. O. Moore
bead, professor in the United Presbyteri
an Theological seminary at Xenia, Ohio,
who has been giving a number of power
ful and inatruotiva bibla readiojra; State
Secretary Nash, of Nebraska, Rev. Dr.
Rhodes, of St. Louis, C. II. Yatman, of
New Jersey, and representatives of tbe
international committee at New Tork are
also doing valuable work in tbe conven
tion. It is expected that $10,000 will be
raised in tbe convention to assist in car
rying on the work by tbe state executive
committee. This committee uses tbe
money in organizing new associations,
strengthening tbe older ones and inaug -erating
various lines of work among the
800.000 young men and boys in this state.
They employ six secretaries who are con
stantly in tbe field. The local associa
tion has fifteen delegates in attendance,
a few of whom returned home this noon.
The past week has witnessed but little
change in the status of diphtheria as it
exists in Rock Island, except that tbe dis
ease seems to be abating a little. Nine
cases were reported against ten tbe pre
vious week, and four deaths bave oc
curred . Tbe utmost care is being exer
cised by the health department to stay
the progress of the disease, and if tbe
same vigilance is shown by parents and
school children there, will not be an
alarming prevalence of it in Rock Iiland.
Numerous complaints, however, have
been made of instances where
children have been attending school
with throats flannelled and other evi-
j ..a -i . . , i ,.
ueocea ui turuai irouDie. inese cases
should all receive the most searching in
estigations by school teachers, for if it
is shown that parents baye so little con
sideration for other children as well as
their own as to subject them to exposure,
it becomes the duty of the teacher to in
tercede and deny the children showing
signs of diphtheria admittance into the
public schools. All throat disease are
not diphtheria, but any of them are likely
to be, and it is better to aend a child
home who hasn't it than to jeopardize tbe
entire school by permitting one to remain
wno baa it.

"If your local paper," write an old

and Uke a Rood breath and think for a
season, and aee if you cannot remember

Rock Island who may find food for re
flection in this very suggestion .
An exchange say that every news
paper in the land should publish the fict
that burnt corn is a sure cure for bog
cholera. It was first discovered by the
burning of a pile of corn belonging to
distillery at Peoria. It was thrown to the
bogs and readily eaten by them. Before
that time a number had been dying each
day with tbe cholera, but the disease im
mediately disappeared. The remedy is o
simple that it can easily be tried.
Master rankle Jones, tbe boy actor.
appeared in "Carl, the Outcast," at Har
per ineatre last evening before a fair
sized audience. The star again demon
strated wonderful dramatic powers for
one of his age. He performs with grace
and ease, has a good clear, well regulated
voice and sings nicely, but it is to be re
gretted that he should appear in such a
piece which has no plot, verse or any
thing to give him opportunity to develop
his gifts. This afternoon th company
appeared in "A Sea Waif for a matinee
performance and it will be repeated to
night. This is the piece In which the
great tank scene and startling surging
sea of water is provided; and Master
Jones will at the came time introduce a
number of his songs and other specialties.
Rock Island was well represented at
the grand musical entertainment given at

mentia DeVere, Dora Poole and Signore
Bologna, all appeared to their best ad
Vantage. On Monday evening we are to have
some of the richest comedy on the road

Boston Evening Traveler says:
The Globe was well filled to see the in
itial Boston performance of He. She.
Him and Her," a piece brimful of fun
and laughter. It is a succession of
amusing incidents having no especial
bearing on one another, which serve to
introduce Mr. Geo. H. Adams and Miss
Toraa Hanlon in tbeir specialties, like
wise a company of comedians in their
specialties, alt making an even ins of up
roarious fun. The music is excellent, and
waa much enjoyed by tbe audience.
On Tuesday evening Palmer's spectac

The first presentation of John Fv

A conference was held .at the Harper
house last night between Judges Pleas
ant and Smith, of the circuit court, and
tbe official stenographers of the district,
H. D. Blakemore and J. E Blakemore,
of Moline, and C. C. Secriest, of Gales
burg. The meeting was held on the
strength of a petition to the
judges of tbe Tenth district requesting
that the number of official reporters be
reduced from three to two. Of course
all three reporters were rjresent. and
each presented his own case in tbe
strongest light possible, and it
was more than once during the evening
tbat an animated exchange of conmli-
ments ensued between the reporters.
Finally, after the session bad continued
until nearly midnight, the judges decided
not to act upon the Question for the
present, tbe understanding on tbe part of
Mr. J. E. Blakemore being tbat he would
endeavor to find other employment, and
if be should succeed to resign, thus re
lieving tbe judges of the embarrassment of
discrimination. There is not enouea
work in the district for three reporters,
but a good living for two. The present
stenographers are all very capable, and
the judges are not inclined to make dis
tinction if they cau avoid doing so.
