A rery rleasant sororisa was ri
John Oil weUer at his home 1108 Fourth
avenue, last evening in honor of hit forty -eighth
birthday. For some days past "a
number of Mr. Ohlweiler'a inUmate
fxienda have been busy making arrange
ments for the event, and although the
gentleman himself had an inkling of what
was going on and was expecting a few
Wends to call, he had no idea of the ex
tent of the plans that had been mde, and
was surprised at 8:30 o'clock at suddenly
finding his house filled with old and
young friends showering congratulations
upon him. According to arrangement
the guests assembled at Turner hall and
proceeded thence to Mr. Ohlweiler's resi
dence. After arriving Henry Jordon
made a few informal remarks ot happy
and congratulatory nature, and presented
Mr. Ohlweiler with an elegant rattan
chair on behalf of Henry Carae and the
employes of the bottling firm of Carse
& Ohlweiler, and in the name of the Ger
man Singing society, a cigar case of most
unique and elaborate design. Mr. Ohl
weiler ia always eqiil to every emergency
and this occasion, great as it was to him
with its attendant surprise, proved no
exception as to him. He responded in
well choeea remarks, expressive of his
giateful feelings, ami extended to his
guests the freedom of his house. There
were so many p reseat, however, that it
was impossible to accommodate them in
the house and adjournment was egreei
upon to the bottling establishment of
Carse & Ohlweiler in the rear and fac
ing on Eleventh street, wnich by the way
had, unknown to Mr. Ohlweiler, been
properl? prepared for the reception and
enjoyment of the visitors, by the em
ployes. The entire east portion hid
been cleared for dancing, the floor para
phined and B'euei's orchestra was in read
iness to start the ball. The walls had
been tastefully decorated and in a con
spicuous place, where it met the eyes of
all as they entered, was a c .rd which j
bore this inscription: !
: We!com,Yonr Forty -eighth B rthday.
: 1843 -ISM '
: "Uut neil."
It was not long before the company
had taken possession of the floor and
were intermingling in the fascinations of
Terpischore to merry music. In the
basement light liquid refreshments were
at the disposal of the guests at their
At Mr. Ohlweiler's house card tables
and other e mes had been arranged for
the older one3 to whom dancing afforded
no particular charms, and many availed
themselves of this form of amusement,
Mrs. Ohlweiler remaining there to enter
tain this portion of the guests, while
Mr. Ohlweiler saw to it that there was no
cessation in the scenes of merriment at
the shop. The German singing society
rendered a number of delightful and in
spiring selections at intervals.
At 11 o'clock the dancers were formed
Into a marching column by Messrs. Jacob
Ohlweiler and John Ohlweiler, Jr., who
with Mrs. Ohlweiler, had planned the
affair, and the march taken up to Mr.
Ohlweilei's house where tables had been
spread the full length of the first floor of
the house and to which all eat down and
did ample justice. This important part
of the evening's enjoyment over, dancing
was resumed and continued until the
morning hours. The complete list of

The Moline Dispatch has been looking
up some important sections of the school
law, which nnder the increase in the pop
ulation of that city entitles the city to
nine members of its board of education,
and a president hereafter. The law of
In all school districts having a popula
tion of not less than 1,000 and not over
100,000 inhabitants, and not governed by
any special act in relation to free schools
now in force, there shall be elected. . in
stead of the directors provided by law in
other districts, a board of education to
consist of a presiden tof tie board of edu
cation, six members, and three additioual
members for every additional 10,000 in
habitants. Ia no case
shall said board consist of more than fif
There being some misapprehension in
Moline as 1o the interpretation of this
section, the Dispatch wrote State Super
intendent Raab on the subject, and he has
given the following version of the law;
The section of the school law to which
you refer replaces the provision in the
oldtr acts by which boards of education
were allowed to take the plaee of boards
of directors in places having 2,000 inhab
itants, and allowed additional represents
lion of three on the board for every addi
tional 10.000 inhabitants.
Now, when the number of inhabitants
in any one district un.ler the general
school liw is known by census to b-j
I , 000 or over, to the limit of 10). 000. tht
district shall elect, at the next annual
election, a board of education to succeed
the board of school directors .
If the population of the place be less
than 11,000. the board shall consist of
six members and a president; if it be
II, 000 and under 21 the board shall con-,
siet of nine members and a president.
In this way, increase shall be made in
the number f members of the board;
three member beine added for f-vi-rv ad
dition of 10,000 in the population of the
pjace uniu me numDer or members in
tbe board, exclusive of the r.residnt. is
15 the limit of membership far places
an a population or less than 100.0 JO.
The decision attaches no siyciacance
in Rock Island, as our board of education
operates under a special charter, Moline
being under the general laws f the state.

The company is a good one, and the
