THE CITY'S PROGRESS.
Last Night's Meeting of the Im
The Paiblle Batldlaa;, Vla4aet aB4 tth.
r Prajeeia-Xew qaartera Talked
The regular monthly meeting of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement i.sso
elation last evening, was presided over
by President Jackson, and there fas a
large attendance of members. After the
regular routine business had been dis
posed of, the committees were callrd in
order and Chairman W. B. Ferguson of
the committee on manufactures, reported
on vsrions matters which had been re
ferred to him, stating that one project in
particular would receive his special at
tention, on his visit to Chicago today.
Under the head of public bail dings
and works, Mr. Fred. Hasa reported that
Mr. M. E. Sweeney was at work oti the
abstract of the title to be vonveyc d by
the state of Illinois to the government
of the necessary rights at the foot of
Twenty-feurth street, and 'hat while he
bad found some defects in the same, they
are being remedied, and the outlook is
hopeful for securing an absolutely clear
title. Mr. Hans also reported having
received proposal j from a number t f situs
suitable for the government bu.lding.
These were reported to the association :
From D. T. Robinson, the 8iencer
property at the head of Nineteenth for
From I. Huber the property at the
southwest corner of Third avenue and
Twenty-thirJ street, two 60 fool lo a and
a 60 foot lot adjoining, and all for J'8.000.
From Collins Bros, the present t kating
- From W. B. Fergnsori, the corner of
Eighteenth street and Fifth avenue where
the plating works are now locate 1, and
also the lot immediately west, owned by
J. R. Johnston.
A strip of land on Eighteenth street
near the Dart building and runting to
The Krell property on Eighteenth
street and Third avenue.
Mr. Phil Miu-he)) asked if one of the
Warren lota on becond avenue and
Sixteenth could not be secured by con
demnation. This subject was bri-.-fly dis
cussed, the prevailing sentiment being
that it could.
Mr. J. M. Buford thought it impro
priety for the association to attempt to
locate the building. It was cut 0t its
calling entirely, as whatever course it
adopted or whatever preferences it showed
would cause fetling and make tie asso
ciation eneaies. Besides the location of
the building csme wholly within the
province of the government. Seven
teenth atreet,said Mr. Buford, is tae cen
ter of population. Almost forty differ
ent sites could be had in the neighbor
hood of that street, and be cited as in
stances the Warren lots, the Lynde prop
erly, the Taylor house property, '.be pla
ting works property and J. R. John
ston's property. He thought in due time
the government would advertise for bids
and ihen those having propositions could
submit them to the proper source.
Mr. Fred Hass stated that the main rea
son thai the association had interested
itself was to expedite matters a ad have
the location settled while the st ite legis
lature is in session in order that the site
may be ceded by the state cf Illinois.
Oiherwise we would have to,wait two
Mr. Oliver O.sen agreed with Mr. Bu
ford. The government itself must lo
cale the site and will no doubt send its
representative here to determine the mat
ter wnen the proper time arrives. The
association does not want to endanger
friction by too hmty action in tie prem
ises. The point was rained as to whether
tne legislature could cede jurisdiction in
advance of the formal choice f a site,
and Mr. M. E Sweeney read from Starr
& Curtis' Statutes of Illinois laws in point
which not only showed that it can but
has been doDu. A hill for the purpose may
be framed by an attorney and forwarded
to Springfield for passage this winter.
Mr. John Vulk was of the o inion that
when the govern ment was reary to locate
the building, tlire commissioners would
be sent here by the treasury department
for that purpose.
Mr. W. C. Maucker state I that be
could certainly not submit a proposition
until he knew the speciflcatioca or stipu
lations as to tie site desired. Toe en
tire block bounded by Pour t a and Fifth
avenues, and Sixteenth and f-eventcentb
streets, was anvailahle, but ho would not
make a proposition until he knew the re
quirements of the government.
Mr. C. L Walker suggested correspond
ence with the treasury officiuls on this
point, and a motion by Mr. J M. Buford
prevailed, that the matter be referred to
tue committee on public b iildinga, to
correspond with the department at Wash
iogton, and take any other needful and
proper steps to expedite matters to the
end that the building may ix: if possible,
started this spring.
The following resolution was offered
by Mr. E. II Guyer. and adopted unani
mously: Itetolced. That this association take
this opportunity to express its thanks to
the Eon Ben T. Cable for bis expression
of kind regard for the people of this city
in the valuable donation of the filtering
apparatus in connection will the water
works, and we desire to express out ap
preciation of the gift, believing that its
bentflts will be long and fully enjoyed by
oar people in thus securing to them a
foil and abundant supply of pure, whole

spoke of three nice rooms in McCabe's

mittee, reported on rooms in the new T.

Mr. T. J. MediU offered the suggestion
that should the association determine
the securing of more expensive rooms
Impracticable that it accept the conncil's
offer of a year ago for the use of the
council chamber. This idea was briefly
discussed and it was finally adopted as the
sense of the association that desira
able quarters, such as those of the Dav
enport Business Men's association, be ob
tained if possible, if the association can
stand the expense, otherwise, that the
council's offer be accepted. In reply to
an inquiry Secretary Searle reported that
the association bad 115 paying members,
which, with dues at f 5, amount to f 575

matter was referred back to the c mailt

Yesterday's meeting of the Iowa and
Illinois Central District Med'cal society
at Davenport was largely attended. En
tertaining papers were re id by Drs G. L
Eyster andO. G. Craig, of this city, and
interesting and instructive discussions
followed . At the conclusion of the ses
sion it was intended that Dra. Craig and
Tuesdale.of this city, Dunn aud Sloan, of
Moline, meet and consider the availability
of several that sites have been offered
for St. Luke's hospital. A Dr. Sloan
was not present it was decided to meet
at the Augustana Book Concern on Mon
day afternoon at 4 o'clock and look
over the grounds. The committee
will have several sites to inspect. Mr. C.
H Deere has offered a lot on Second
street. Moline, in the Water Tower Pow
er Co' west addition, for hospital pur-,
poses. Mr. E. P. Reynolds baa offered
a lot in the rear of tbe'll. P. Hull prop

Third street, Moline, can be had, with
one acre of ground, for f 3.000; and the

can be had reasonably. It is to be
hoped the committee's deliberations will
lead to the establishment of a twin city

The above paragraph appeared in the
Union's report this morning'of last night's
meeting of the Kock Island Citizens' Im
provement association. It is but one of
many evidences shown of lute of the
morning paper's contemptible narrow
mindedness towardMr. Cable.which is now
carried to an extremity not to bave been
expected even of the Lnion. All that it
has spoken of Mr. Cable's benevolence has
been begrudgingly, but it was hardly
to be expected that a'reoortoriitl ac
count of the proceedings of a pro
gressive body, entirely non-partisan
In its aims, and having for
its only object the advancement of the
city's best interests should be garbled so
far as to make it entirely incomprehensi
ble to one not familiar with the facts
prompting the action on the part of the
association. Fortunately, however, the
public is fully cobversant with Mr. Ca
ble's public spirit and liberality, and
would have been so had the Vnion never
opened its mouth on the subject.
"A Cold Dai" roailai.
From what ean be learned frem various
parts of the country where the company
has appeared, Perkins D. Fisher's "Col.l
Day" comedy which is to be presented at
Harper's theatre next Saturday night is
one of the very best on the rosd. The
Cincinnati Sun says of it:
This cozy family theatre wap packed to
the doors at both performances yeslerda',
and, judging from the amount of laugh
ter. "A Cold Day, or the Laplanders," hns
surely caught on, and will not get left.
Perkins D. Fisher baa secured a company
which is far above the average, in facC
every member may be called an artist.
The play, of course, is light, with only
enough plot to make it interesting, but
it ia full of fun, replete with catchy and
sparkling songs, ouela, e'c. The scenery
and properties carried by the company
are new. In abort, it is as complete a
comedy as one wishes to see.

SERIOUS COASTING ACCIDENT.
Aa Afteraaaa r
Kaa Marred nr
A serious coasting accident occurred on
the hill in the Davenport pasture at the
head of Twentieth street at 0:80 yester
day afternoon. Ever since the recent
snow storm, boys of various ages and
yonng men and young women, too, for
that matter, have been in the habit of
congregating thera nightly and indulging
in the joys of coasting over the snow
capped surface. The hill ia quite steep
and the ride rather an animated one
from summit to base. Yesterday after
noon at the time stated a number of boys,
with sges varying from nine to fifteen
years, were coasting on the hill with a
bob sled after school. A quartette com
posed of Gabriel Mosenfelder, Geo. Mar
tin, Duncan McFarland and Henry Wei
land had mounted the bob for a slide
when Jakey Simon, a by-atander, no
ticed that the front sled of the too was
crooked. He told McFailand, wbo was
manipulating the steering apparatus of
this, but the latter paid no attention to
the warning and off the sled load went.
It soon became evident ibat the coaster
was unmanageable and before it could
be controlled it bad daahed into a tree
slump and the boys were piled up in a
heap. It was at once apparent that some
of the boys had been seriously injured.
McFarland escaped with few bad effects.
Weiland. however, fared the worrt of
the boys, both legs being arenched and
bruised, and the right one badly broken
and splintered above the knee. He was
carried to his home on First avenue acd
Twentieth street, and Dr. Cowden at
tended him. He is suffering great
agony, but bis injuries are not
likely to prove of a permanently
serious nature. Geo. Martio was rendered
nnconscious by the shock, but soon re
covered and is getting along nicely. Gab
riel Mosenfelder was painfully injured
and was carried by some of his compan
ions to the home of bis father, Alphons
Mosenfelder, on Twentieth street and Dr.
Craig upon examination, found two fright
ful gaahea, one on the lower Up, and the
loas of several teeth from the lower jaw in
consequence and one under the jaw.
Tne chin and right ear were also cut.
The boy is stiil suffering, but there are
no serious apprehensions as to his recov
