For his evening; subject at Harper's
theatre last night, Re. G. W. One chose
for hit subject "Our City. Her Past.
Present and Future." His text as from
"A el t lien of no mesa elty.'
Paul, said Mr. Gue, was a splendid
character and intensely a man. ne was
consecrated to the work of savl g men
regardless of nationality and loca lly, and
yet be loved bis own people. He took
pride in rtfirriog to bis citizenship as a
Koman and boasted that he was frre
born. Of Tarsbus, tbe city of I is natis-.
ily, be declared tbat -it was l.o mean
city." Paul loved rity life and the most
of his woik wss done in the grei.t centers
where people congregated f every
tongue and character. And it is in our
cities where the greatest efforts to save
and educate and tlevate mut be put
forth, for it is theie where the vilest and
most vicious gather. In these cities
everybody helps cr binders, becomes a
blessing or a curse.
The sentiment ex pressed by Cowper,
"that God made the country and man
made the town," Is really prevent in the
minds of many when they compare coun
try and city life. They have a notion
tbat romance belongs to tbe ct untry and
prone to the city. But I love t le city and
io my heart believe tbat he wjo knows
the city life the best can find a different
tate to till. Take your stanl on some
conspicuous spot along the bluff or climb
one of the highest buildiugs, then look
and what a scene meets jour gaze.
Tonder flows the grandest ri'-er in the
world, not only a thing of tv-auiy, but
giving swift and cheap Irsnsi ortation to
the commerce of tbe north and the west.
See the flee houses and stores and public
buildings that lie along the avenues of
trade and here and there a cl urch spire
pointing io silence to tbe skits, speaking
of heaven and reminding mortals of im
morality and God. What a prospect,
what variety, what food for meditation,
what a field for work. Cities do not
spring into being spontaneously, they are
subject to the laws of adaptability and
growth. Location, therefore, becomes an
important factor in the growth of a city.
It should be at a point when distribution
la not only possible, but economical,
where tbe producer and consumer can
readily clap hands and thrite.
Such is the location of our city, for
her nature has done ber best. Sur
rounded by the richest agric iltural coun
try underlaid by inexbaustio e coal fields,
near to tbe best of stone for building pur
poses and possessing tbe grandest natural
facilities for water power in all tbe world.
V bat, through these facilt' ies may be
divided now by different corporations,
nature has designed tbat l)ey be one,
and they nan not remain st parate long,
"for what God baa joined togethed no
man can keep asunder." There will lie a
union of our city with Moli ie and Milan,
and the wonderful werld rei owned, rock
bedded, rock giraed island suggests the
united cities name.
All tbe mutual agreemen's and legisla
tions that can possibly be enacted would
not wipe out the historic nt me. Hock Isl
and, in a hundred years, lbe United
tales government years at o saw tbe ad
vantages of this locality an 1 resolved to
pend millions of dollars hire buildiug up
the central and grandest arsenal of the
ation. While nature bas dealt bounti
fully, and with a lavish t and bestowed
every facility possible fortae building up
or a splendid city here, tbe spirit of
enterprise bas presumed t to much. She
waited for everything .o come here.
but "fortune is a luiy gnJdess she will
never come to you."
Many citiea about us w tbout natural
advantages, but with a determined enter
prising spirit have gone way beyond us
and ara so recognized today. There is no
reason in the world why this should not
be the second city in tbe i.tate, a hundred
thousand population, unit ss that It is that
sbe bas stood io ber own way. Tbe signs
f tbe times are full of encouragement
for us. Six railroads, busdreds of miles
of navigable waterway, a natural ter
minus for business and tie United States
government's confidence :n this locality.
There ought to be etreett running now
from tbe Mississippi river up over the
bluff to Hock river on tbt south all paved
and lined with dwellings with several
lines of street cars connecting tbe rivers.
There ought to be a Uoi ed States gov
ernment building located here and eplen-
ul elevators for the stonng or giain.
1 be viaduct should se no longer a
question and tbe bridges over tbe IWk
river should all be msde free. It we are
to have material growtl and aland aide
by aide leading cities, i ur local political
wrangling will nave to cease. It is ex
ceedingly difficult to accompliHh any
thing for the city s gooc when men elect
ed to t fllce feel that the: r operations must
be for tbe party's and n t tbe city's good.
and then all through tbe administration
feel tbat they are bount ed and trammeled
by the opposite party. If political lines
are not laid aside then we should do our
best to nominate men f good sense and
pluck. Men wbo are not afraid to en
force the laws, pass roper ordinances,
tear up old sidewalks grade down the
streets and fill up tbe parks. The psst
year bas been about tt e grandest In sub
stantial improvement in tbe history of
the city. Over 2.500 meal feet of splen
didly paved streets, and 11,000 feet of
permanent aidewhlks tbat would be a
credit to any city.
Tbe effort to beiutify Union and
Franklin squares should be endorsed by
everyone in tbe city. Oiling up tbe one
and leveling down tin: other to tbe grade.
Our city council deserves a vote of
thanks for the energy tbey have put into
the work. In tbe face of opposition,
threats and petitions, they have gone for
ward and accomplished a vast amount of
permanent improvements. Tbe business
of Hock Island la on solid foundation,
our banking bouses are reliable, tbe
stores well filled wi .h tbe cheapest and
best and honorable ricn in charge. Tbey
are tbe ones wbo build our churches, pave
our streets, maintain our schools, and take
care of our pool and we should patronize
them in return. Wj have no more right
to) take our trade elsewhere than tbe
merchants and manufacturers have to
bring in foreign bel jin our places.
We have no need to go elsewhere for
anything. Our newspapers we are in
debted to in a bunt. red waya and should
have our patronage, but we would all be
better pleased if tjey would atop their
unkind remarks an 1 flings at each other;
nobody enjoys it. 1 always dread to have
strangera read stch personalities. It
would be a matter of congratulation
if each one would see aometbing in tbe

Our preachers are doing the hardest self
sacrificing work of any men in town. I
am only sorry tbat our brother of the
Central church finds its necessary to
leave us soon. Here in oar city isolation
is impossible. Here you have your oc

But I plead for other services tonight.

Tonight Geo. Wilson's famous min
strels appear at Harper's theatre. The
Syracuse Journal says of them:
George Wilson's minstrel company gave
performance which satisfied a house
full of people last night at tbe Wieting.
It was but the fourth performance of the
season, but all parts moved as smoothly
as if tbe show bad been on tbe road for
month. There is an evenness about
tbe performance from first to last
that ia pleasing. Tbe opening of the
first part, "Derby Day in England," is
pleasing and full of excitement. A
chance to introduce bright colors in cos
tuming ia taken advantage of, and tbe
stage, with its plush drapery and curtains
"nukes a pretty scene. The singing was
good, some of tbe numbers being espec
ially fine. Clifton gave an exhibition of
ventriloquism which seemed to please the
audience. Tbe Kirmeas dance was put in
place of tbe customary drill number and
waa an improvement. George Wilson
and Lew Benedict were funny, and their
jokes and local hits thoroughly enjoyed.

grotesque musical instruments, and witb

THE MNCE OF DEATH.)
C. SI. Glass, Formerly of this City.
Sleets a Horrible Death.
Aaaaaalaacesl at a Iaaee ia La As
a-elea, Cal. Clabheel ta Death aaa
Hia Rrsnalas Plaeea as a Rallreaa
About two years and a half ago Charles
M. Glass, who for a numner of years
had conducted a blacksmith shop on the
west side of Eighteenth street between
First and Second avenues, and wss known
as one of tbe most skilled blacksmiths in
Rock Island, or tbe three citiea for tbat
matter, went ta Los Angeles, Cal., to live
and work at bis trade.
Now news comes of his murder at a
dance there on tbe 24th of last month in
one of tbe most fngbtful and atrocious
manners possible. The tragedy occurred
at a free and easy'reaort known as tbe
"Three Mile House," and six miles from
Los Angeles. Glass had gone out there
to attend a dance in company with
Franklin Pierce, one of bis workmen,
W. O. Stephens, alias 'Shorty," a
hostler, Eugene McManus, a hack
driver and Cbas. Sweeney, a hostler.
It ma subsequently learned upon
investigation tbat after tbe dance a
saloon in the neighborhood was vis
ited, tbe men got into a fight
over tbe ownership of tbe bata and
Gl ass knocked a Mexican down, thinking
be wss striking Sweeney of his own party
who had said be "could lick any man in
the crowd." A general row followed,
during which Glass' companions escaped
and G!ass disappeared. It seems the lst
ter got into a fight witb Mexicans and
Spaniards outside, during which Glssi
was literally pounded to death. As near
as it can be learned there were eigLt men
in the crime, wbo placed the mangled
body of their victim on a railroid track.
but tLe first train tbat came over the
track struck tbe body and threw it to one
side. The trainmen picked it up and
t ok it on to Los Angeles.
Glass' mother is in Los Angeles and he
bas a wife and two children in Rock Isl
and. Tbe Los Angeles Timet says of
"Charley" Glass, the murdered man,
was one of the best known characters in
the city and was very popular among the
classes with which be associated. He bad
quite a reputation as a horse shoer and
did most of the best class of work for
owners of fast stock. He was quite well
off, but spnt money freely and was con
sidered a "high flyer" in his wavs.
