The lonj; anticipated fair and carnival
given und'.-r tbe auspices of the ladies of
the First M. E. church, opened most pro
pitiously last evening. The attendance
far exceeded expectations and bore ample
testimony to the fact that the worth of
the previc us entertainment given by these
ladies has not been forgotten.
The various booths are all prettily ar
ranged so as to present an attractive ap
pearance as ooe enters the hall, while
each little pavilion is in itself unique and
tastj. One of the most novel md pret
lily designed booths is the one that first
greets the eye and is known as the Japan
ese booth. It is covered by an immense
Japanese r arasol.the frame work of which
was made by the Rock Island Lumber &
Manufacturing company. and it was artis
tically covered by the Adams Wall Paper
company. The doll booth is on the
right hand side, where is an almost end
less variety of dolls, including the talking
wonder, dills at play, dolls asleep, dolls
in school t.nd dolls at the bridal altar.and
above all the Hennepin canal on a small
scale with boat and tow horse; the ice
cream boo h is on the left side with its
glistening top, giving every suggestion of
cooling re'reshment to the observer. The
other booths are varied in design accord
ing to the exhibits displayed. Tbe names
of those in charge of the various depart
ments uf the fair are:
S upper tables Mrs. II. C. Cleaveland.
Stage er tertatnments Mrs. J. P. Rob
inson. Mrs. Geo. W. Cash.

Across the rear of the hall a large and
substantial stage has been erected, and
here Biehl's orchestra was stationed as it
will be throughout the week, discoursing
delightful sirs at intervals during the
eveuing. The hall is comfortably pro
vided with heat which will be regulated
according to the weather during the
T3K MAT DAT CARNIVAL.
The beautiful entertainment, ''The
May Day Carnival," was given on the
stage un ler the direction of Mrs. J. F.
Robinson and Mrs. Geo. W. Cash, Mr. C.
A. Stoddard having charge of the1
military features. The scene opens
with the Queen of May ascending her
throne, aad her pages and maids of honor
passing gracefully at her feet. She is
being entertained by about forty children
n a grand march, representing birds,
Sowers, foliage and many different char
acters, amusing and entertaining, dressed
in the most appropriate and be autiful
costumes, carrying their trophies and
emblems led by the sceptre and crown
bearer. They are interrupted in their
march ty twenty flower girls covered
with flo'vers, holding wreaths and gars
lands, who weave themselves in and out
among ihe flowers, singing a tuneful
melody. The four seasons, contraiy to
nature, tome in together, and present the
queen their respective symbols, followed
by Faith, Hope and Charity. The katy
dids are greeted with a song telling them
they an; welcome, and that they may
stay and enjoy themselves. The grass
hoppers take advantage of the privilege
given ths katydids and make things live
ly for a few minutes singing and hopping
around. Tbe different characters all pre
sent Hit queen with their tropbys and
emblems. Tbe flower girls almost
smother her with flowers. The crown is
then placed on her head and tbe sceptre
in ber hand accompanied by wishes for a
long reign and prosperity which she
gracefully accepts and responds to. The
scene lien closes with a full chorus of
seventy voices with the coronation song.

THE INS AMD OUTS.
The Old Citaneil Orparta and the Kew
Oao Jlaken lia lrbnt..-MIte Talk.
Last night's meeting of the city coun
cil was important in that it witnessed the
retirement of six of the aldermen who
have had the honor of being identified
with the promotion of one of the most
prosperous municipal years the city has
ever known, and the admission to the
municipal body of their successors, all
young men, who, as the mayor said in his
message, should be proud of coming on
the scene just at this time and they should
not neglect to cooperate with their col
leagues more experienced in city affairs,
and continue the city's advancement
The outgoing councilmen were Wins-
low Howard, A. II. Hampton, C
W. Negus, Matthias 'chnell, Wm. Ed
wards and W. W. Scott, while the
aldermen taking their places were
Chas. F. Bladel in the First, Chas.
Durmann in the Second, Joseph Gciger
in the Third, W. P. Tindall in the Fourth.
Wm. Kennedy iu the Sixth, and Paul
Thitsen in the Seventh, Chas. E?ans be
ing the only hold over alderman. After
the old members had taken the choice of
seats as is customary, und the entire
council was seated, it was found that it
was one of the most youthful bodies in
appearance tha', has ever guided the ship
municipal, Aldermen Scbrocder and 111
being the only members of advanced
The old council carried its progressive
tendencies to its last act by passing the
ordinance for the pavement of Moline
avenue with the modification to the orig
inal ordinance that the pavement be ex
tended to the Moline limits. The city
conn:il of Moline last night passed its
Tnird avenue ordinance despite the pro
test of the manufacturers, and also de
cided to make its annual total approprias
tions this year $110,000, which is $56,
000 more than last year in order that it
may embark in general improvements on
an extensive scale. This is business, and
Rock Island will have to keep hustling to
Mayor McConochie's address dwelt on
the progressive spirit of the day in Rock
Island, and urged a continuance of it. It
commended the street and park improve
ments, complimented the city officials,
recommended a paid fire department, and
made some good suggestions as to the
equipment of the same, including the es
tablishment of a hook and ladder house
on Flatiron square.
The ordinance for the pavisg of Mar
ket square was received and properly res
Aid. Buncher passed around a box of
cigars previous to the convening of the

adjournment spread a lunch in Turner
At the Thratrr.
A large and appreciative audience in
which Moline and Davenport were well
represented, attended tbe presentation by
M'lle Rhea and her excellent company of
the dramath interpretation by Albert
Roland Haven of the modem historical
character. "Josephine, Empress of the
French." M'lle Rhea was admirably sup
ported byMr.Wm. Harris as "Napoleon."
whose make up and tone were as perfect
and realistic as could be possible. He
was a living portrayal of the Emperor of
tbe French. The play dealt chiefly with
the loves and trials of Josephine and Na
poleon and their forced separation in or
der that tbe royal succession to the throne
might be preserved. The stirring, ro-
mantic and touching incidents of those
times are fully realized in the acting of
M'lle Rhea, though historical facts have
probably been distorted somewhat by the
author in his efforts to allow Napoleon to
share with Josephine tbe true martyrdom
of their separation, though the great
beauty of the dramatization is the ever-
present sweet, pure, self-sacrificing worn
anly character of Josephine. Rhea nev
er appeared to better advantage. Her
postures are admirable and her move
ments graceful, dignified and queenly.
The Tri-City Ministerial association
met in the Y. M. C. A. parlors, Moline,
yesterday afternoon, the Rev. J. B. Little,
president, in the chair. The resignation
of Dr. Albro as secretary was read and
accepted, and the Rev. Oilman Parker
was elected to fill the vacancy. A letter
from the Rey. C. L. Morgan was read ex
pressing regret at his inability to be pres
ent to fill his portion of tbe programme.
The constitution was so changed as to
provide for tbe holding of future meet
ings at 10 a. m. instead of 11 a. m. It
was suggested to the executive commit
tee that the next meeting in July be held
at Black Hawk's watch tower instead of
Rock Island, but no definite action was
taken on the suggestion. Tbe Rev. II.
C. Marshall, ofthis city, read an excel
lent paper on "The Atonement, its Na
ture and Extent." It was discussed by
the Revs. Hess. Gilruth, Griffin (of
Cable), Archibald. Lindeblad, Ghormtey,
Parker and Little. The Rev. A. O. Eng-
blom, the new pastor of the Swedish Bap
tist church, Moline, was admitted to mem

For sufficient reasons the couple have
kept the consummation of their union a
secret from all but a few of their most ins
timate friends until recently, but there is
no longer a desire on their part to con
ceal the happy fact. The groom is tbe
former Rock Island mail carrier, who
duting his Bervice in that capacity proved
himself one of the most popular and effi
cient on tbe force, while his bride is the
daughter of Mrs. Anna Doonan, of 2413

young lady in every respect. Mrs. Mc

Even the Union is sufficiently posted to
realize that Mr. Cable's nomination by

of Mr. Gest. Hence its anxiety that Mr.

There was a very heavy frost early thia
morning with results, that it ia feared.
will prove very disastrous to the fruit
crops that were any way advanced. Cher
ries and plums are seriously damaged and
the latter fruit is believed to be destroyed
for this season. The early varieties
of strawberries are also believed to have
perished. Fruit growers who have been
seen today are very blue over the pros'
pect, and while they can only estimate tbe
extent of the destruction, they express
fears that it will be found to be underes
timated rather than exaggerated.
Tbe temperature went as low as 33 this
