The regular monthly meeting of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation last evening was the most largely
attended that the association has wit
nessed since its organization. President
Wm. Jackson presided. Under the call
of committees, E. H. Quyer reported
that the consolidation committee had had
a meeting the previous evening and it had
been thought expedient to arrange for a
joint meeting with the Moline committee
with a view of formulating a bill to be
submitted to the legislature before its ad
journment, looking to consolidation in
stead of annexation, thus bringing the
two cities together on a more equal foot
ing. HERE IS AN IMPORTANT MATTER.
Under the bead of Ilennepin canal.
John Crubaugh recited a conversation
with Capt. Marshall, engineer in charge
of the canal survey, in which it had been
stated that great difficult bad been ens
countered at Milan by property holders
demanding too much for their rights
Henry Carse stated in the same con
nection that considerable comment had
been made over this condition of affairs,
the general impression being' that the
people of Rock Island were standing in
their own light.
J. H. Wilson reported that he knew of
little opposition on. the part of the people
holding the water power, to the canal
reute as determined upon by the official
survey, nar of a disposition to exact ex
torticnate prices for the land contiguous
to the route proposed.
E. H. Guyer reported that the route
surveyed through Big Islind was regarded
with the most general favor, and Mr.
Crubaugh said that the owners of land
on the Silver Lake route were only ask
ing from $10 to $60 an acre for their
land, which was regard2d as acceptable.
It was said that D. L. Kunkle.the owner
of the Milan, or sou:h shore power,
wanted hie power preserved and guaran
ted to him, and $30,000 for the privis
leges desired by the government.
When the committee on public grounds
and buildings was called, Fred Hass brief
ly related the return of Mr. Olsen from
Washington where he had completed all
details as to property, titles, etc., but Mr.
Olsen entering at thia juncture, Mr. Hass
retired after seeking a report from Mr.
Olsen himself. That gentleman ex
plained that all deeds had been
accepted by the attorney general who had
also Bigned a letter to accompany them
to the other departments setting forth
that existing laws afford all necessary
jurisdiction tor conveying the property
to the government, and that no addi
tional legislation is needed. He explained
the various steps necessary to be taken
on his arrival at Washington and the fact
that now the papers were all safely back
in the hands of the war department with
the written approval of the attorney gen
eral, and that all that is necessary now is
to forward the papers to the comman
dant at Rock Island arsenal to proceed
with the work.
On motion of R. Cramp ton, the hearty
thanks of the association were extended
Mr. Olsen for his very efficient services
in behalf cf this community.
From the executive cjmmittee, E.
H. Guyer called attention to the tabular
ted statement prepared by lbs secretary,
showing the preference of the members
of the association as to q uarters. The
various suites of rooms proposed were
those over McCabe's store, over Loosley's
store, over the People's National bank
and in the new Y. M. C. A. building. Of
125 postal cards sent out 61 bad been re
turned, showing a preference of the ma
jority for more expensive rooms with the
club room features, the vote standing 37
for to 20 against. The vote on the
membership fee was 27 for $5, 23 for $10
and six for $15; on the annual dues. 29
for $5, 24 for $10, six for $15, and one
for 825, while two or three were for dif
ferent indefinite amounts. The vote on

becond choice Mitchell & Lvnde'a 3;
over Crampton's 4; new T. M. C. A. 5,

R. Crampton submitted a minority re
port in favor of two rooms in the Fries
building over his store one 20x40 and one
20x15 with enterance on Second and on
Eighteenth street both nicely papered and
heated and for $20 a month, and with the
announcement that the secretary was
willing to occupy the rooms in lien of his
salary thus saving that amount to the
. Phil Mitchell tendered the ground floor
room south of the postofflce in the Mitch
ell & Lynda block for $600. '
Mr. Guyer - moved that the executive
committee be empowered to lease the
two rootis on the third floor
and east side of Mitchell & Lynde'a new
block for $ 825 per annum. Mr. Wells
offered a substitute that three rooms be
secured, and upon Mr. Mitchell offering
the three rooms for $350, the motion, as
so made af'.er considerable discussion, in
which L. Simon, W. C. Mancker, E. H.
Guyer, R. Crampton, E. E. Parmenier,
Fred Hass and Olver Olson were heard,
was submitted and carried.
AH TO FEES AND DDKS.
The quest ion of membership fees then
came up and Dr. Paul moved that the
amount be $15 with annual dues of $10.
Mr. Carse moved that fees and dues be
$10, in effect after August 1, the present
$5 rate for both to continue until that
time. The subject was debated at length
and finally the amendment of Mr. Carse

Reports upon the street today about
Charles H. Deere having sold out his
interest in Deere fc Co., were flying thick
and fast. According to rumor the sale
had actually been affected. The street
talk is due, no doubt, to the presence in
the city of two strangers, who have, for
several days past, been busiiy at work
noon the books of the company. Mr.
Velie, secretary of the company, upon
being seen by. the Journal reporter, says
there is no truth in the report of a sale.
The strangers are registered at the Eeator
as Louis Yalden an 1 August Fischer, both
of New York. We understand they are
expert accountants. Mr. Deere probably
has his reasons for putting them at work
upon the books, v hich may, or may not,
be known later on. Moline Journal.
