The Nyivan n IMhband.
The Silvan boat club of Moline held a
meeting Tuesday evening and decided to
disband. The club has not been ravine
running expenses for some years, and has
run in debt in the sum of $1,800. A note
was given for this amount, and bears the
name of thirteen members of the club
11. ut-ere noios mis note, it seems
Tl L 1 ...
that within a few days an offer has been
made for the purchae of tte boat house
and the ground upon which it is erected,
1.80) being offered for the building and
grout d. Thus, thought the members who
were present last evening, could they pay
off the indebtedness and wash their hands
of thf matter by selling the place and
disbanding. The matter was talked uo in
forrm.lly, and J. H. rotter said that he
was ii favor of selling, and getting out.
Mr. Tarntrd and Mr. Moore were the
only members who wanted to see the
organzation remain, and were willing to
leave their names on the note another
year. Mr. Moore suggested that fifty
youn:; men of the city be solic-
ted to join the club, ravine an
niliaiion fee of 10. which would
amount to 500; that they, with this
money so paid in, pay off on the
note. If this could be d.me the dues of
the fl 'ty members could be used for run
ning expenses. Mr. Bernard, too.thouuht
that this would be a good idea, but Mr,
Porter said that this could not be done.
and te thought that the best way would
be to sell tbe boat house for the amount
of tin- note. A private meeting of seven
mem!rs was held in a corner of tbe
room when it was decided to sell the boat
house, and disband. Tlie terms of the
sale isclude only the house and ground,
not the contents or boats.
Tbi; lie publican says a liberal offer was
mnde to the young men of tho city, that
if an organization could be effected with
membership of forty or fifty, they, the
members of the Sylvan boat club, would
give is an inducement to the new organic
zation all of the boats," furniture, carpets,
etc., now owned by the club.
A ommitti e was then chosen consist
ing of Ed. Weisc. Tom Eurchal, Fred
Watt, Henry First and M. J. McEniry,
and c f which the latter was made secre
tary, to circulate a petition. It is expect
ed that the new organization can be per
fected, and that the purchaser of the boat
housj may be willing to rent it to the
boys the coming season; if not, the city
will probably be asked to allow a boat
hoaee to be erected on the lot occupied
by Velie & Nason as a stone yard at the
foot of Sixteenth street. The old club
will letain the ampitheatre on tbe isl
and iU present and the new club will be
able to purchase it. Tbe Sylvan Boat
club was organized in 1874, and for some
year) was a brilliant success. Of late
yean, however, it has not been a paying

Marshal Miller made a further investi
gation this morning of the premises on
which the dead body of tbe infant was
fourd in a vanlt last Tuesday morning,
and he learned through 'the partial con
fession of a woman living on the second
floor of the house on tbe premises, facts
that would undoubtedly lead to the un
ravelling of the mystery weie the inves
tigation pushed. Such, however, is not
likely to be the case, as Coroner Hawes
doe not believe that sufficient evidence
can be produced to Insure a conviction.
Tbe case, if prosecuted, would disclose
several very uu pleasant features, and the
core ner is not inclined to believe the re
sult t would justify further investigation.

Cirrie Miller and Eva Wilson, the
Davenport colored women arrested yes

Kramer for fast driving, were fined $100

women were very abusive and profane
in t le language they used toward the of
fice -s, and they gave the police a lively
cbae to catch them.

The board of supervisors were rather
late in getting started this morning on ac
count of the somewhat difficult task
Chairman Smith experienced in satisfying
the desires of his colleagues in regard to
the make up of the standing committees.
At 11 o'clock, however, he made the last
revision of his list and the board was
called to order.
The minutes of yesterday's session were
read and approved.
Mrs. Metzgar, of the W- C. T. U.. of
Moline. was allowed to address the board.
one said the organization which Ehe re
presented was not of a political nature,
but that it worked for God and the home.
It was interested in the welfare of Rock
Island county, and it asked for the care
ful consideration of the board on two
matters. One was the providing of
more, suitable entrance to the women s
department in the county jail, and the
other for the provision of holding reli
gious services at the poor farm at least
ouce every two weeks. She was proud
of the manner in which the board had
provided for tbe physical comfort of the
inmates, but their spiritual wants were
being sadly neglected.
A deep nnd impressive silence was man
ifested when the chairman requested
Clerk Donaldson to read the list of
standing committees, which are as fol

President Stoddard, of the Rock Is
land & Milan street railwav. made n
plea for an abatement of at least a por
tion of the tax assessment against his
company,, and his p?tition, with a couple
of others of a similar nature, were re
ferred to tbe abatement committee.
Considerable discussion was indulged in
over a request for a donation of $f0
by Buford Post, G. A. 11, tor the deco
rating of the soldiers' monument on May
30th. Comrades Harris and Campbell
appeared for the petitioner and made
short remarks on the subject. When the
question came to a vote the ayes and nays
were called, and the request was rejected
15 to 8. A motion by Supervisor
Burrall to authorize the committee on
public expenditures to expend $G0 in
decorating the monument met with a
similar fate. The supervisors who voted
agaiufcl both mo' ions tiien showed their
generosity by starting a persnal sub
scription of one dollar each, to which
every member subscribed. displaying a pa
triotic and at the same time commendable
disposition to guard tbe county treasury
against any undue encroachment.
This afternoon the board having au
thorized the chairman to appoint a com
mittee to arrange for the publication of
tbe official proceedings, Supervisors Bur
rall, Cralle and Kerr were named.
It was on Supervisor Kerr's motion or
dered that the expenses of a minister of
tbe gospel to the poor farm for religious
services every two weeks be paid.' The
board then went iuto a discussion of the
bill of fare at the poor farm. Supervisor
Kerr having protested against the present
as luxurious and not confined to the nec
essaries of life.
Room for Itron n llizher up.
Vice President II. B. Stone, of the C,
B. & Q , has resigned bis position, a fact
that is causing much speculation in rail
road circles, a general belief being that
the object of some was to create a place
higher up in the estimation of the Bur-
ngton for W. C. Brown, now superin
tendent of tbe Iowa lines and formerly
holding the same office on the Rock Isl
and & St Louis division. Tbe Burling
ton Gazette says:
The news of Mr. Stone's resignation
was a thorough surprise on all bands.and
is thought to have been a hurriedly cut
and dried affair with a view to creating a
channel for promotions that will affect a
prominent official of the Iowa lines and a
citizen of Burlington. One or two rail
road men hete who are posted in the mat
ter will say nothing definite, but one vol
unteered the remark "that there would be
some big surprises in this locality."
8 apt. Brawn, is not in the city today.but
there are many reasons which strengthen
the theory that he is to be tendered an
important promotion. Of course,whelb
er this is due to the fact that Mr. Brown
has been considering for some time a very
flattering offer from the Oregon Railway
and Navigation company, is not known
positively, but the guess is a good one.
