What gorgeous night! What a
triumphant occasion to the public spirited
citizen was that which attended the for
mal opening and dedication to the public
of Spencer square last evening. It was an
affair toward which Rock Island had
looked forward with pleasant anticipation
though the people had already begun to
enjoy the privileges and pleasures of a
handsome park and had accepted them in
a somewhat matter of fact manner. On
the other band no elaborate preparations
had been made. The exercises were all,
it may be said, informal and Impromptu.
They were more of that cordial, happy
hearted nature characteristic of a great
family reunion or a joyous event,
when all are united by a bond of
mutual sympathy and enthusiasm.
Commissioner Jackson, to whose untiring
efforts and incalculable labor) is due the
state of perfection attained in the im
provement of the square, had prepared a
little programme including a band con
cert, a few speeches and turning on of
the Cable memorial fountain. But it was
the manner in which the public generally
testified to its approval of the public
spirit shown by Mr. Jackson, by the city
council and by the contributors to the
square's ornamentation that made the
eventof last evening what it was. Through
the endeavors of Messrs. R. Crampton
and Will R. Johnson, of the committee
designated by the Rock Island Citizens'
Improvement association, a brilliant dis
play of fireworks had been provided, the
park illuminated and it was due to the
cooperation of Davis & Co. that an extra
number of arc electric lights had bepn
supplied, while the ladies had worked
faithfully all the afternoon decoratiog the
vases and planting them with plants and
So it was a lovely scene indef d that
met the gnze of the assembling throng in
the evening. The entire four sides of the
iquare were strung with Japanese lan
terns, and lines were also hung along the
main cross-walks, while two arc lights
cast a bright ray over the fountain, ami a
red and a blue arc lamp hung on either
side of the band stand entrance. Mana.
ger Montrose, who yesterday took pos
session of the Harper, showed bis public
spirit by having the entire east side of the
house illuminated a light appearing in
every window and the business houses
fronting on Second avenue and on Twen
tieth street were nicely illuminated, and
a volcano of red fire sent up a pyrotechnic
display at intervals from the top of
Prick's livery stable building.
By all odds the largest assemblage of
people men, women and children that
has ever gathered in Rock Island at
time, was wrapped in pleasure and ad
miration when the exercises opened in
the band stand pavilion with an overture
by Bleuer's band which had offered its
services gratuitously for the evening's
entertainment. The band then gave way
to the mayor and other city officers, board
or aiuermen, f resident Ilass and others
of the Citizens' Improvement association
and a number of other citizens who were
escorted to the pavilion by Commissioner
Jackson, together with a number of young
ladies accompanying Miss Florence Dart
who was to perform the graceful act of
formally starting the fountain. The mul
tilude having gathered about the stand
Commissioner Jackson introduced
JUrxiK J. W. DRURT
as chairman of the evening. Approval of
the selection was manifested in a most
enthusiastic and complimentary manner
In accepting the honor Judge Drury said
it afforded him great pleasure to meet so
many people of the town which for so
many years bad been his real home. He
came here to make this his home fifty two
years ago. All of Rock Island was a park
then. "I am very glad to witness the
progress Rock Island has made," said the
judge. ! am very glad to be with you
on this gladsome occasion and shall al
ways be glad to meet with you. I desire
to congratulate you all in having such a
beautiful park, and to those who have
brought it to such a beautiful state of per
fection, let there be all honor and praise."
Commissioner Jackson expressed his
happiness at seeing so many people prea
ent, which he regarded as an evidence of
public interest and pride taken In the
beautiful square. He spoke briefly of the
that had been made from a frog pond to
a place of pleasure, pride and rest. He
traced the history of the movement which
bad been attended by such gratifying re
suits first the action of last year's coun
cil in ordering the filling and grading of
the square, and the putting in of the
cross walks. "I want to say," the com
misaioner put in here, "that that was a
grand old council, and every member
who sat in the municipal chamber during
its existence, has a right to teel proud of
his official association with that
body." He then also alluded to
securing of the first great ornament the
Cable fountain. He knew, be aaid, that
a fountain was the first essential in an or
namental way, and when Mr. Ben T. Ca
ble returned from Europe, where he had
traveled extensively and where much at
tention is .paid to public grounds the
speaker said he had taken him to Spencer
square, showed him the progress of the
work- thus far and explained what he
hoped to do. "Mr. Cable was delighted,"
aid Mr. Jackson, "and without hesiten
cy he said, 'If f SCO will help you toward
a fountain, you can have my
check for it any time." This was
a starter, but' before the commission
er had time to see about Increasing the
subscriptions, he observed that Mr.
Cable's interest in the square was increas
ing and finally he came to him and said
that hia sister, Mrs. Geo'. A. Castleman
and himself had decided to assume the
entire cost of the fountain and to put it
in as a memorial to their father. "Thus
it was that we secured that beautiful
fountain which adorns our square," Mr.
Jackson continued, "and after it had been
selected I voluntarily assured Mr. Cable
that it should be surrounded by a line of
ornaments fully in keeping with its rich
ness ana elegance, and 1 have bad no
cause to regret that I made such
a promise for our public spirited
citizens have responded generously
and have provided' the other de
signs which are distributed through the
square. And I have yet to hear of a man
woman or child fail to approve of what
has been done. These gifts em
blems, vases, statues and Bet tees
are all testimonials of good feel
ing, of public enterprise, and they
are tonight placed in your custody.
They are yours to enjoy and to appre
ciate, and to take care of. We have
started to make Spencer square the grand-.
est in Illinois, if not in the United
States, for its size, and we hope the pub
lic will enjoy and appreciate the full ben-
egta and pleasures to be derived from
such a square."
Mr. Jackson then called for remarks
from J. B. Danfortb, who commended tbe
improvements that ' had been made, and
spoke of the public park as the poorman's
front yard a place where those who have
no broad lawns and gardeus and flowers
may find rest and recreation He gave
some carefully prepared statistics of the
number ot acres devoted to public parks
in the larger cities of the United States
and in Europe, and cl sed with an appeal
for more factories and mills and sbopp,
such as are essential to the support of tbe
laboring classes, which means population,
the increase of which is tbe first aim of
nil progressive cities. Rock Island should
strive to secure more factories where tbe
laboring man may get bis pay in cash
every Saturday night and not be obliged
to take it in an order on a truck store.
was then called upon by Commissioner
The mayor stated that what he had
to say was to be directed solely to
Commissioner Jackson, and addressing
him said he had been selected by the
members of the city council to perform
what might be considered, under ordin
ary circumstances a very pleasant duly
requiring considerable nerve, and no
small amount of moral courage. It was
nothing less than a public chastisement
by giving him a good caning with a
shrub plucked from the African forests.
Ever since the park improvements com
menced the mayor said he had been re
peatedly admonished by members of tbe
city council to keep an eye upon the park
commissioner and to hold him well in
band, and see. to it tbat he put no statue
ot a white elephant in the park that
might become an expensive luxury.
"Now, contined the steker. '"I do not
know whether I have carried out the
instructions strictly to the letter of the law
or not, or whether I have not been guilty
J of urging you on to greater exertions on
this line. At any rate they have called a
halt and demand that I proceed to mete
out what they consider well merited chas
tisement in their behalf, with this under
standing, however, that present punish
menl be now deferred on condition tbat
you accept this cane and use it until you
meet the man who is base enough to con
demn your policy as a park commissioner;
you will then turn it over to him to chas
tise you according to the original instruc
tions. But should you find none such, as
we hardly think you will, then we hope
you will turn it to its intended use of aid
ing and supporting your weary footsteps
as you slowly tread the declining paths
of life leading to an honorable old age,
ever remembering you will always have
the kindest wishes of tbe members of tbe
present city council, and it is their earn
est wish tbat your health and life may be
long preserved to enjoy the respect and
esteem your energy and perseverence in
your laudable undertaking has earned for
Mr. Jackson was visibly touched by
this evidence of good will and esteem.
He did not expect that kind of a speech,
he said, and he was profoundly impressed
with the token which bad been tendered
him. He would accept it with feelings of
gratitude as an evidence of recognition
and esteem and would always cherish it
in such a spirit. If tbe council and the
public bad approved of bis humble efforts
as a simple citizen to upbuild the city and
improve its attractions, he was wholly
satisfied with the reward of his labors.
Tbe labor in which he had been
engaged in the improvement of Spencer
square had been one of love, and
any success that had attended it.had been
as highly gratifying to him as it could be
to anyone. Rock Island was to him tbe
first city in the world; he would rather
live in Rock Island than any other city in
the universe. In retiring, Mr. Jackson
again thanked the aldermen for their
Ex-Mayor Henry Carse was introduced
and he spoke a few words on the subject
of public projects and improvements. He
emphasized tbe idea that Rock Island
should aim to have more factories and
alluded to the success of the viaduct and
Hennepin canal bills, and predicted tbat
a year hence the city would be rejoicing
over a government building.
City Attorney Haas made a few con
gratulatory remarks on the great ims
provementa which had heen made in tbe
appearance of the square, and tbe argu
ment the transformation presented in tbe
support of the theory tbat Rock Island
was advancing, and that public spirit bad
taken possession of its citizens. Our
people have only to encourage this pub
lic spirit to make Rock Island a sparkling
jewel in the crown of beautiful cities
that adorn our land.
Aids. W. F. 8chroeder and Daniel
Corken were asked to speak, and they
responded in the order indicated,
both making appropriate remarks.
Mr. Schroeder also proposing three
cheers for Win. Jackson, which were
given beart'y . Remarks by Messrs. Fred
Hass'and Walter Jihnson concluded this
part of the ceremonies. Mr. Jackson
announced that MUt Florence Dart would I
turn the water on
TU CABLE FOUNTAIN
and Marshal Miller having directed the
:earing of a way from the pavilion to the
fountain, it was soon set Dlavinsr
beautifully by Miss Dart. Almost simul
taneously the sceno was illuminated by
Messrs. R. Cramptcnand Will R. John
son with red, blue t nd green Are in turn,
producing a moat strikingly beautiful ef
fect. This was a ulgnal for tbe grand
display of firework f satures sent off under
the direction of Capt. Beardslev. and

Free from Lime and Alum
ROYAL is the only Baking
Powder Absolutely Pure.
The only Baking Powder yet found by chemical analysis to
be entirely free from both lime and alum and absolutely pure, is
the ' Royal." This perfect purity results from the exclusive use
of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent pro
cesses which totally remove the tartrate of lime and other impur
ities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is much
greater than any other, and it is used in no baking powder
except the "Royal."
Dr. Edward G. Love, formerly analytical chemist for the U. S.
Government, who made the analyses for the New York State
Board of Health in their investigation of baking powders, and
whose intimate knowledge of the ingredients of all those sold in
this market enables him to speak authoritatively, says of the
purity, wholesomeness and superior quality of the " Royal " :
" I have tested the Royal Baking Powder, and find it com
posed of pure and wholesome ingredients. It is a cream of
tartar powder, and does not contain either alum or phosphates,
or other injurious substance.
" E. G. LOVE, Ph. D ,"
Late U. S. Government Chemist.
Prof. Love's tests, and the recent tests by the Chemical Divi
sion of the Agricultural Department of the United States Gov
ernment, show the Royal Baking Powder to be superior to all
others in strength and leavening power.
