SHALL WK CELEBRATE.
A Fonrth of July Demonstration
on a Grand Scale.
A flin of Observing the Columbian
Year-Let Hock 1 Hi and Teke
As stated in yesterday's report of
Thursday evening's Improvement associa
tion meeting, a plan of Fourth of July
celebration was suggested, 'and the pre
vailing sentiment was that Rock Island
should attempt no demonstration of a
particularly elaborate nature this year,
but that in the Columbian year l!92
this city should indulge in an
observance on a scale that would
mak,e us famous. The Improvement
association is likely to hold a meet
ing in the near future . to consider this
matter. If such a celebration is to be at
tempted it is none too soon to look after
the preliminaries. First, the demonstra
tion should be decided upon, a plan of
procedure mapped out and the prepara
tions systematically and methodically
carried out. The Ahgcs is most heartily
and enthusiastically in fayor of the
demonstration talked of. It is too late
to attempt a pretentious celebration this
year, but in '92 the Columbian year
Rock Island can distinguish herself if the
matter is properly managed. If the Im
provemerM association desires to assume
charge of the celebration, it should at
once be given out that Rock Island is to
entertain all the .surrounding country on
that day. Let the city be first in the
field and then it can expect a prestige
not otherwise obtainable. Some will say
it is too soon to begin to talk about 1!92.
The Argus does not think so. The
earlier we begin the better will be the
plans, the more the suggestions that can
be offered and in the end the more elabo
rate the celebration.
Tne world's fair in Chicago does not
open until the fall of 1S92; there will be
nothing to attract public notice before
that time, tscept the expectancy of Chi-,
cago's exposition The opportunity for
Rock Island will be plain to the mind of
all contemplating the subject. Many of
our public improvements now under way
will be completed. We will have more
pavement, the viaduct will be in place,
the government building under way as
Will, in all probability, also, anew court
house and union depot. BlacK Hawk's
watch tower will have been transformed
into a pleasure resort, attractive and fa
inous as well as romantic and historical,
and reached by speeding electric cars.
The Hennepin canal will be far enough
under way 83 that the world will realize
greater than it does now what it means to
the commerce of the nation, and what are
tte advantages of a city like Rock Island
directly at its mouth.
Altogether it strikes The Argus that
the Fourth of July, 1892, is Rock Island's
golien opportunity. Let the improve
ment association determine to arouse the
world on that occasion and it will be
GIFT OF A CHURCH.
P. L,. Miuheir Dona-ion to the
t'hriHtian Organization Worthy
P. L. Mitchell filed in the circuit court
yesterday a deed conveying to the Chris
tian church people the house of worship
tbey have long been occupying on the
northeast corner of Third avenue and Fif
teenth street. The transaction simply
means that hereafter the Christian con
gregation will own the church whichfor
20 years it has been occupying through
Mr. Mitchell's kindness, he having paid
a'l expenses and kept up all repairs, his
intentions from the - first being to
donate the church to the congrega
tion at such time as the organization was
in such condition that it could assume i.
The structure was purchased by Mr.
Mitchell 20 years ago when the Fust
Baptist church society abandoned it for
tie edifice on the comer diagonally op
posite. The building was overhauled
and refurnished and improvements added
from time to time by Mr. Mitchell, in
volving in all an expenditure of $14,000
How acting upon his advice the church
organization has been incorporated as the
Christian church of Rock Island, the
bard of trustees being composed of
Messrs. P. L. Mitchell, Adam Blackhall,
L. E. WeEt. M. A. PatterBon and George
Btocker. The result was that Mr. Mitchell
carried out bis long contemplated plans
and made the donation ot the church to
the people .
The bridge builders are now putting in
the treBt'e work at the island end of the
bridge which completely covers the east
track, leaving only the west track for use,
and necessitating the transfer of passen
gers . at that place. "Change cars for
Davenport." or vice versa, is now heard
on reaching that point.
The bridge painters now have the under
part of the upper deck of the Rock ibI
orwi hrirlce about completed and the
structure looks quite gay in bright color.
The cannon and carriages occupying
the point of the island west of Arm'
strong avenue, have been painted black
and the grass neatly trimmed, and now
present a much Improved appearance.

WHAT WE ISEED.
City Clerk Koehler Stake an EU
nate or R'-rtlptn and Ezpendltarea
for the Flecal Year.
By far the most important matter
which will engage the attention of the
councilmen Monday evening will be the
equalizing of available appropriations
into the various funds. City Clerk Koeh
ler has prepared his estimate of receipts
and probable expenditures for the cur
rent fiscal year as follows:
, BECE1PT9. .
Water r ntala
Othi r iternn "."".".""!'.

Grand total fl44,4;0
This would show a deficiency of
$54,910 at the end of the year should
the clerk's estimates for all funds be al
lowed to stand, but it is not improbable
that some pruning will be indulged in,
and the appropriations reduced consid
erably in the aggregate. However,
sbould Cpt. K Dealer's estimates be ac
cepted, there is an available 2 per cent
tax limit which would produce 841,679
and a furtlitr levy of $13,430 for inlertst
on the bonic-d debt, which would brins
the total revenue up to $144,919 the
maximum amount collectable.
SMOTHERED IX A WELL.
IodiflVrrnre of the I'nforlnnate Han's
Relatives to hlo fate
Henry Rohn. a well-digger, lost his life
at the farm of N. Schol!meirin Winfield
township.Seott county, Wednesday morn
ing, by having a well cave in on him.
The soil was almost wholly a treacherous
red sand. A moment before the acci
dent, the men at. the top of the shaft no
ticed a crack that indicated a possibla
cave-in, but in reply to a question; Rohn.
said he did not want the rope sent down.
He was soon grasping for it in the hope
that it had been let down, but it had not .
The cave in was an extensive one, and
when it had finished the dirt was eight
feet deep above the bead of the unfortu
nate man. The Schollmeier family seems
to be densely ignorant. One of them
made the suggestion that the cheapest
method cf disposing of the matter would
be to shovel in the dirt that had been
taken out and make the well the tomb of
the man blow. But the work of
exhuming the body was undertaken
in a bungling way, and in three hours his
head was uncovered. When the body
was drawn out of the well, it was laid on
the ground, covered with an old blanket,
and left there. Oae of Schollmeier 's
sons went on with his plowing in an ad
joining field, and Schollmeier himself
went about his other work with less con
cern man he would have shown if he had
lost a fine h"g. No effort was made to
notify any authority or to do any of the
thiDgs that ere ordinarily dote in such a
case. Ia the afternoon a couple of men
who happened to be in the neighborhood
and who had beard of the accident, went
over to the place to see what had hap
pened. They soon set things in motion.
An inquest was held and a verdict ren
dered in accordance with ths above facts.
It is supposed that Rotn has relatives in
Ciinton county, Iowa, and that his wife,
from whom be is separated, is now ving
in Davenport. Some 10 years ago his
brother lost his life in the same way in
