The regular amual meeting of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement a8o
ciation was held Ian evening at the rooms
in Harper's theatre building. President
Haas, Secretary Medill, Treasurer John
son and most of 1he other officers were
present. There m as the largest attend
ance of members that there has been
since the starting i t the association. The
capacity of tho rjom was taxed to its
fullest extent, and many citizens occupied
seats outside the door within hearing of
After tho minu es of proceeding ses
sions had been read and other routina
matters disposed of, Secretary Medill re
ported that the txecutive committee had
made satisfactory arrangements with Mr.
T. Kenworthy for the joint occupancy
of the association's rooms as his law of-
uce, ana me actio i of the committee in
this respect was tpproved by the asso
The annual report of the officers were
received and placed on record, that of the
treasurer being embodied in the secre
tarjB report wfcich indicated dues
collected from 103 members, and
amounting to $515 that fourteen
delinquents representing $70. were
yet to hear from. There was a balance
of $105 in the treasury, independent of
current expenses to be acted upon during
the evening; a certificate of deposit for
$107 of funds uouced by Vice President
Carse during his viiit to Washington in
the interests of the association, was also
reported. This money belongs to the
cili?.ns subscribing it, and is merely in
the safe keeping of the association. Com
mittees were called in order and the com
mittee on parks and boulevards reported
through Dr. Paul t iat its report was vis-
ble in the appearance of Spencer square,
and the association acquiesed in that way
of expressing it and manifested its ap
proval of what had been accomplished in
a manner complimentary to the commit
tee. Under the head of public groucds and
buildings, President Hass called attention
to the condition of the viaduct project at
Washington, and gt va assurances to the
fact that the vicuct would be con
structed without ii doubt, practical-
all that was needed now beiog
the president's signature to the sun
dry civil bill. Tie C. R. I. & P.
and C, B. & Q. railways had promised to
pay the damaces r.o abutting property
holders, growing out of the erection of
the viaduct. As to 'he government build
ing Mr. Hass reported his belief that the
senate bill would be reached in the bouse
before long and the house bill could
never be reached in its present position
on the calendar.
In the line of new business Dr. Paul
suggested that provision be made for a
class of members who are not property
holders or business men, but who take an
nterest in the progress of the city, and he
bought a reduced n embersbip fee should
be arranged for such members. Mr. R.
Crampton thought quarterly payment
membership dues might meet thp require
ments of such cases, but the matter was
finally deferred to s subsequent meeting
The names of Messrs. B. T. Cable,
Willard Baker. M. R. Ifilehart. C W.
Searle. S. W. 8erle, Chas. Cooper
and Louis May were all proposed
for membership and admitted by unani
A VALUABLE ENTERPRISE.
Further new busiress was called up and
Mr. Oliver Olsen ail tressed the associa
tion upon the prosrect of bringing a very
mportant industry to Ruck Island. The
matter had beer, called to bis attention by
conversation Willi Hon. . W. Hurst
while driving to llie watch tower last
Saturday. Mr. Hurst had obtained his in
formation from a colleague in the legis
lature who bad talked to him of the suc
cess of cooperative industries in the city
which was his home, and bad demon
strated very clearly the advantage and
success of such br.incbes of industrial
pursuit. The next Monday evening Mr,
Olson stated be had received a call
from Mansgtr Jeiperson, of Augus
tana College, who had related to
him the fact of a visit to Rock Isl
and of a friend cf his, a representa
tive of one of these very cooperative in -
dustries with a yiev of locating here and
that the industry would, if certain in
ducements were made, establish a $ 100,
000 cooperative furniture factory here
Tbeae inducements were not on the way
of subscriptions t stock in the enter
prise, but more part icularly in a desirable
factory site accessible to shipping facili
ties. The original cooperative enterprise
was established in the city from which
this gentleman cacie fifteen years ago,
The city then donated land of sufficient
size on which to build and also railroad
switches, etc., and bad also gone so far in
aidins industries of a similar nature
which were the outgrowth of the pros
pcrity of the origin il industry as to -put
up buildings for so ne of them.
Mr. Jespereon wis then introduced by
Mr. Olson and be stated that the ques
tion was BimplT "wnat tuuucements
will you giyet" There were nineteen
of these coooeratire establishments in
the city in question. It took but
few weeks to gst one under way
when once started. From the first one
established sixteen years ago in the city
with a capital o ' 10.000, he had in
mind, two had sines branched out with a
capital of $100,000 each, and paying div
idends aa high as 8) per cent, and aver
aging not less than 20 per cent.
Mr. H. D. Folso n moved that a com
mittee be appointed to confer on the
subject and enter u pon sueh negotiations
at once as will lea 1 to the establishment
of the industry in Hock Island.
Mr. Howard Wells directed the atten-
tention of the aisociation to the fact
i i 1 " I'" i " ' ' I . . w . a -m . n ST rv mnVTtf I
that stock, such as would 1 required by
the furniture industry, could be delivered
25 per cent cheaper in Rock Island than
in any inland city away from the river.
After further discussion, Mr. L. Simon
moved as an amendment to the pending
motion, and which was accepted by Mr.
Folsom, that Messrs. Hurst, Olson, Dart
and Wells be added to the committee on
manufactories, and authorized to make
every effort to secure the industry, and
report progress to a called special meet
ing of the association whenever it may
be deemed advisable to bold it.

THE FUTURE POWER.
:lertrlPity Derided I'pon by the
Holme I'rople and the Contract
1'rubably Let Today.
Today in Chicago the contract is being
let for furnishing electricity as a motive
power on the tri-clty lines of the Holmes
syndicate. The Thompson-Houston sys
tem will probably be adopted and the
Sears Power company will likely have a
chance to close a deal for power. Mr.
Schmidt, representing J. G. Brill & Co.,
the Philadelphia car builders, was here
yesterday, nis mission solely concerns
the Holmes people. He was in consul
tation with Supt. Schnitger regard
ing fifty fine new 16 foot cars, which
are to soon supersede the present horse
cars. The latter will be run as trailers
when needed, but there will be no horseB
in use after tbe new cars go on. The
Brill company promise something very
neat in this order. When it is filled there
will not be a city the size of this in tbe
west that will have such uniformly ele
gant cars as we will here.
President Holmes is now in the east
completing tbe arrangements fur tbe
adoption of the new power.

About 1 o'clock this afternoon two
stranirers entered Bamberger's clothing
store, and while one engaged Mr. Bam
berger in conversation over the purchase
of some goods, the other wandered leisure
ly to the rear of tbe store. Mr. Bamber
ger's suspicions were aroused and while
he paid strict attention to business he kept
bis eagle eye on tbe man in the back of
the store whom he noticed had his coat
flung carelessly oyer his shoulder. So
when the Strang r attempted to leave the
store Bramberger overhauled him and
found a pair of pantaloons nicely tucked
up under bis arm. The thief at once at
tempted to run. but Bramberger recov
ered the stolen property and held on to
the fellows' coat with such tenacity that
it was left in his hand by the scamp who
ran for dear life over to Market sq uare
where be turned south. State's Attor
ney Sturgeon was on tbe corner near
Thomas' drug store, when, attracted by
Bamberger's jestures., he put after the
thief, who cut through the alley in the
middle of the block on the east side of
tbe square to the rear of Given fc Bell's
saloon where be shot through to Third
avenue and made across lots until he
reached the Y. M. C. A. building where
be disappeared. The state's attorney and
a crowd pursued him that far when they
lost track of him. The police are now
scouring the city for tbe thief.
Indications are that Harper's theatre is
to be opened after all the coming season,

provision that an entirely new heating
apparatus, the reconstruction of the
front of the house, the supplying of new
scenery, etc , in accordance with original
plans, be provided at once. Mr. Mont
rose will probably take possesoion Oct. 1,
by which time it is expected the improve
ments will have been made.
