A Kork I land Hoaueaiton Recti v. d
i . ;t..t l-iirt in Moline A Vranil
It'Oiooitra Ivd FcHxlbl'.
In its n-view of pving advancement
in Roch IsNnd The Abotjs of last 8atur
dy iveoiuB suggested incidental! that
when the Molice avenue pavement i.-ins
xbat on Third avenue in Moline, for the
completion of both of which contucrs
now unler way. will finisa a stretch of at
leat four miles in length, a silver brick
be put in directly on the division line as a
token of good fellowship between the
two cities thus brought nearer together
by the public spirit which is the source of
tbe public improvements now at work.
Tbe Moline Republican-Journal takes
kindly to The Argus' suggestion relative
to the planting of the silver brick, and
after inswnine The Aegcs' remarks with
reference to the silver brick, says:
Brother Argus, we secocd the sucges
tion, heartily endorse the sentiment and
approve tiie idea. Let the chain be
Ptrengtbeced. Let the silver brick be
planted and planted to stpy. That the
two cities will some diy be one is believed
and acmitttd by most of our thoughtful
unbiased men .
Approp..B of tbe endorsement by the
Moline paper cf the silver brick idea, the
thought now suggests itself that the
Fourth cf July, 1S92, would be the right
time exactly for such a demonstration.
As has heretofore been stated, the Rock
Islard Citizens' Improvement association
contemplates a big celebration on July 4
a year hence. Why not extend the
participation in that demonstration to in
clude Moline.'.the two cities joining in tbe
display and on that occasion planting the
silver brick. The progress of the pave
meet cn Moline avenue will probably
reach the Moline line by that time. Now
what is to hinder the two cities uniting
in this reat Columbian demonstration?
Proper committees from the Improvement
association in this city and tbe Business
Men's association in Moline could map
out a programme including, perhaps, a
grand parade ia the morning with
floats representative of the industrial and
commercial institutions of the two cities,
interspersed with other floats indicative
of important events in our national his
tory, from the landing of Columbus to
the present time. After the pageant has
made the rounds of the two cities, let the
brick planting ceremonies occur, the af
ternoon given over to picnics, etc., while
in the evening there might be a grand
illumination of both cities. These are
merely oiTtrtd as suggestions, although
Tee Argus proposes to continue to urge
a Fourth of July celebration of '92.
Some will say it is too early to talk
about that now. That is where we are
mistaken. Tne quicker the plans are
uacler headway the better. Let us de-
ci.ii' upon the demonstration and then
itn to prepare for it. What say you,
public-spirited people of Moline!

Tee committee on new quarters re

time. The ctmmittee to ask the city
council for additional funds for fitting up
the new quarters, reported its mission
successful in a gratifying degree. The
board adjourned tiil next Monday even
ing when definite reports are expected
as to tbe new quarters, and on the cost
of book racks, tables, file supports, wains
Qoating, etc., so that contracts may be
ltoll-d on the Highway.
A bold highway robbery was committed
on the Monmouth road about one and a
half miles south of Milan between 6 and
7 o'clock last evening, the Tictim being
T. S. Martin, a poultry dealer residing
back of Davenport, who was returning
from a trip through the country back of
Milan, and when reaching the place above
stated he was met by two men, one of
whom asked him for a chew of tobacco,
and as he was about to comply with the
request he was seized by the two ruffians
and robbed of something over $33. He
was then bound on top of the chicken
coops which he had on the wagon
and tbe team was started toward Milan.
While in this uncomfortable position
be narrowly escaped death by a R. I. &
P. train on a crossing near Milan, over
which he had just passed, the train being
so close upon him the breeze fanned his
cheek as it passed. On reaching town
he was assisted from his position on the
coops, and at once came to this city
where be reported it to the proper au
thorities, and Sheriff Gordon i6 out on

Ju'y 14 marks the anniversary of the
fall of the Bastile and a holiday for all
Frenchmen throughout the world It is
our Fourth of July in Frence. This year
July 14 will be a holiday for this tri-ur.
ban section. Adam Forepaugh's
shows will be in Rock Island on that day
and give the only big show entertainment
of the year for the citiz ;ns of Rock Isl
and and her two sister graces, Davenport
and Moline. No other tig show, and
most likely no other tented show of any
kind, will visit either of the three cities
this yeitr. Tbe Adain Forepaueh shows
are so extraordinarily large, and their
tents are so commodious that 21.0flo
persons can be seted, ai.d that will ac
commoda-e a large proportion of the
6how going population of toe cities. Of
course thousands will come in from
smaller towns and cities, as excursions
will be run upon every railroad entering
tbe three cities. If the merchants of
Rock Island are wise they will prepare
for the enormras multi.a le tbat is cer
tain to be in the city on July 14, and the
very best sort of preparation to receive
it, is to let tLe people comprising it know
what and where to buy by judicious
newspaper advertising. The Adam
Forep&ugh shows will do their part in
bringing the crowds here. They are cot
only the largest shows ever put out on
the road, but they are being advertistdto
aa extent heretofore unknown in the
show world. The tremendous success of
the shows during all of last weeK in Chi
cago. ws qaite unprecedented, some of
the newspapers tveie declaring unquali
fiedly to quote one of them "The
Adam Forepaugh shows in their magni
tude and merit mark a new era in tented
exhibitions. Tbe yeteran showman died
a year ago saying, 'keep my show and
name alive.' His spirit may Test in peace
on that score as the shows of bis day were
never one-half as good as they are to
day." COLD WATER CONFERENCE.
