The Kock Island Citizens' Improve
ment association held its regular monthly
meeting Ust evening, oceunvin? iia npw
and inviting suite of rooms in Mitchell &
Lynde'i building, for the first time.
President Jackson occupied the chair
and Secretary Searle, Treasurer Johnson
and other officers wire in their places,
while there was a large attendance of
mcmbtrs, many being present who have
not attended the meetings before.
A motion offered by Oliver Olsea wa9
adopted, constituting the executive com
mittee the governing board with authority
to adopt such rules as shall seem proper
in regulating the dab room features of
the organization. Amotion by W. H.
Judge was aso favorably acted upon, in
structing the procuring of 25 keys to the
rooms to be placed in the hands of the
secretary who shall issue them to the
members desiring the same, at 25 cents
eich. It was decided to have the name
of the association placed on the windows
Under the call of committees. Chair -mn
Johnson, of the advertising commit
tee, submitted a proposition of the Rock
Island Union to issue a special Fourth of
July edition of 5,000 copies and reserve
a certain amount of space to be tilled by
the secretary of the association, the sug
gestion being thu 650 be appropriated
for that purpose. The matter after be
ing discussed, was referred to the finance
and advertising committee to expend $50
or ?25 according to the finances of the

M. Montgomery reported corres
pondence with a barb wiie factorv
as requested at the former mettinc,
and submitted a letter which he hd
rvceived, showing the product to be
1750,000, its pay roll $3,000 per month
and the number of men employed 200.
The association continued the matter in
Capt. Montgomery's hands, and the manu
facturing committee, of which he is a
member, was authorized to take whatever
steps might be deemed desirable, and to
setd a representative to the city having
the location of the enterprise, if thought
In the matter of parks.Dr. W. A. Paul
brought up a matter now under di;cus
sion alone; First avenue for a park on the
river front west of Thirteenth street, and
called the association's attention to the
desirability of some action with reference
thereto. P. L. Mitchell made a statement
for tbe information of the association,
that the ground between Eleventh and
Twelfth was ownCd by the city, while the
blocks on either side are private property.
Iu the discussion which followed, many
excellent ideas were advanced looking to
the livins out of a paik and boulevard,
aud the matter was at length referred to
the committee on parks and boulevards.
R Crampton stated that the authorities
of Augu9tana college had under way a
projct to purchase sufficient land
fnr a college pirk south of
Seventh avenue and extending to Molice
avenue, with a view of calling it Univer
sity park, and of a desire to have Seventh
avenue changed to College avenue when
the improvements now in contemplation
by the council are completed. u,iver
Olsen spoKe also of the same purpose on
the part of the college, which was growing
faster than our people are for the most
part aware. The change in the name, he
thought, would be an appreciable compli-
meat and would have a beneficial effect
in many ways. W. li. Ferguson enu
merated advantages to come from the
chance in the nams of the avenue. Tbe
members of the association were author
ized to pledge tbe best efforts of tbe as
sociation in furthering both improve
Dr. Paul offered the suggestion that it
would be an advantageous improvement
to have the Bchools designated by names
such as those of prominent literary peo
ple.than by numbers.
R. Crampton suggested tbe advisabil
ity of a Fourth of July celebration, but
upon discussion it was decided that it was
too late for anything of a pretentious cel
ebration thi3 year, although the associa
tion will not withhold its endorsement
and encouragement of any and all die
plays on that great patriotic occasion.
The suggestion did meet with favor
however, that preparations be already
taaen in hand for a celebration one year
hence the occasion of the Columbian
anniversary and it is quite likely that
tbe next meeting of the association will
be devoted to this subject. It is none
too soon to take this matter in hand, and
Rock Island, if it pursues the proper
course, can have a Fourth of July cele
bration in '92 of which it may be proud,
and which will do the city no end of

An electric car was run over the bridge
line to tbe crossing on Twenty-fourth
street, under the direction of Manager
L,ouderback this afternoon, and the ex
Fcnuicui, as a;i oiners or tne street car
people's new system, found entirely sat
lsiactory. I he old tram rail on Third
avenue between Fifteenth aud Nineteenth
was found to require bracing up, and this
will be done tomorrow, so that electric
cars may be run Sunday, though the four
blocks mentioned will be relaid with
Johnston rail as soon as it can be had.
Electrician Willard, of the Thomson-
Houston company, has received a trolley
device which will enable the running of
cars under the Brooks' crossing viaduct
temporarily, and it will be introduced in a
few days. Eventually, however, the
bridge will be raised, as it should be, and
it is understood the Rock Island road has
agreed to make this change. A moye on
the part of the Rock Island, so considerate
of publ.c welfare, would be appreciated by

Conductor J. fl. Hayes, of the C, B
& Q. who runs the Monmouth accommo
dation freight, met with what might have
proved a very serious accident while
switching at Port Byron Junction about
8 30 la-t evening. Ue had signaled the
engineer to buck up and was stepping
across the track in from of some box cars
when his foot was caught in some manner
between the rails near a switch. He at
tempted to jerk bis foot lose, but it was
caught fast. He signaled the engineer
with his lantern to stop, but the engi
neer did not see it as the cars were al
most upon him, and with rare presence
of mind In threw his body outside the
track with his foot across the rail and
allowed the first truck to pass over it, by
which time the cars were stopped. He
was picked up and brought to the city
where Dr. Truesdale dressed the foot
wnicn was uaa:y masnta, tnougn it is
thought no permanent injury will result.
and today Mr. Hayes is resting easy at
his home, 1706 Fourth avenue.

favs Something That Will tehock
Ths Argcs of Tuesdiy evening: de
fined as clearly as possible what it be
lieved should be the position of the
friends of the public schools in the forth
coming school election, and the issue that
should be made if the disgraceful prac
tices of the past two years are to be again
attempted. In that same connection the
candidacy of W. B. Fergu3 m was men
tioned, and the statement made that be
was supposed, with bis own consent, to
bs the candidate of the A. P. A. organization.
With the hope of learning from that
gentleman his own position, an Argus
representative called upon Mr. Ferguson
yesterday, and iu reply to the question if
hen as a candidate for member of the
board of education, he said be was.
"Are you the candidate of the organi
zation known as the A. P. A.?" asked
That I am not prepared to say. "
Has that society with your consent,
endorsed your candidacy?"
'I don't know, as I have never attended
a meeting or the A. r. A., and have
never entered their hall."
Have you any reason to believe the
A. P. A. would endorse vou?"
'They might endorse me if a fight were
made on me. I am not a Catholic, and
everybody who knows me knows that."
Asked afterward, if, in the event of his
becoming a member of the board, he
would oppose teachers simply because
theywereCathol.es, Mr. Ferguson an
swered; "No sir, I would not. I would
not be in favor of removing any of the
present teachers on tnat account, nor
would I interpose objections to a new
teacher simply because of her faith, if
she were otherwise qualified to
discharge her duty faithfully and accept
ably. Thathaa always been my position,
and the f;ct that Catholics hive been
employed about my house should sustain
the assertion that I am not prejudiced
against a person on tbe ground of re
While from Mr. Ferguson's remarks be
appears to be entirely willing that the A.
P. A. should support him, yet, in his po
sition, as stated, it will be difficult to con
ceiye how the members of that society
can reconcile themselves to him as a can
didate. Either be has been very indiscreet
in not evincing an unrelenting prtju-
dice, or he has not hid the understanding
that he should with the leading lights
