A large number of the young men of
the city accepted the invitation of the Y.
M. C. A. to their reepntinn t tho
building last evening, which was civen
in order that tbey might see the present
state of the work and the possibilities of
the future. The building wan hri'liantl
lighted, and the guests, as they arrived,
were taken in charge by a committee
and shown through the different rooms
ana an explanation made of what
ise rooms would be put to when
After the guests had all been shown
through the building, the time, until 9
o'clock, was spent in listening to some
delightful music by Eleuer's orchestra.
and a general sociable was indulged in.
At 9 o'clock tie guests were invited to
the auditorium to partake ol an excellent
supper which had been prepared by the
ladies of the United Presbyterian, Broad
way Presbyterian and Baptist churches,
and which was served by the Toung
Women's Christian Temperance union.
After all had finished supper Presi
dent Sperry, of the association,
made a few appropriate remarks in which
he bid all the young men assembled a
hearty welcome, and spoke briefly of the
part of which young men take in the des
tiny of the world, in which connection he
mentioned the career of Napoleon, Grant
and others, dwelling at some leiigth upon
the necessity of good character in young
men, and in closing called upon . B.
McKown. the treasurer of the associa
tion, for a financial report.
The report of Treasurer McKown
showed that the building fund which had
tesn started in January, 1S87, with 50
cents now contained S1S.S43 Of tth
amount $15 G27 had been collected and
paid out, and $2,763 remains collectable,
which wiil meet all outstanding accounts
against the building, except a cote for
$7,000, secured by personal endorsement
of the members of the building commit
tee. The note was made to relieve a
pressure for funds, and the treasurer was
in hopes that it would be taken up in a
few months. The report also showed that
106 young men had civen nearly
$2,400 themselves and an effort was being
made to increase it to S4.UOO which was
the price of '.be lot upon which the build'
ing is built, and which when completed,
would tencfit the yourg men socially, in

one suureme moment when it is a man s
privilege to make seme self-sacriSce that
would give him consciousness that some
thing Lad been done that would be of

Fourth Aenne Improvements.
Edwards & Walsh commenced . Jayins
brick on the Fourth avenue"" pavement
east of Twentieth street this morning and
campleted both courses of the south tide
of the avenue between the outer rail of
the double track of the street car com
pany, and the curb during the day. On
being congratulated by an Argus repre
sentative on the rapidity with which the
work was being done, and asked if he
had any fears about not reaching Thirty-
eighth street this year, Mr. Walsh said
"We will reach Thirty-eighth easy, and
you can say, too, that if the property
holders are wiliini? to put up the cash
this summer we will finish the
iob to the Moline line for
them this year and be done with it. We
are through in . Davenport now, and will
put on 10 men abreist paving as soon as
we get over Twenty-first street Then
you will see it rushed at the rate of two
blocks week." Atd the work so far
looks as if Mr. Walsh knew just what he
was talking about.
Considerable delay and annoyance not
only to the paving contractors, but to the
street car company, involving as it did,
many transfers up to noon today, was
occasioned by the relaying of the
Twentyfirst street sewer pipe across
Fourth avenue. The old wooden
sewer was replaced for this distance
with tile, and it having been found de
sirable to sink it somewhat it became
necessary to drop the water mains and
Davis & Co. "a gas pipes also. This was
what made the delay. Supt. Murrii an d
a force of men worked all night on the
water mains in order to save as much
time as possible. At noon today the
work was completed far enough to re
open s'reet car traffic over the point of
On Wednesday afternoon in Davenport
occurred the marriage of Miss L zzie Iten
of that city, to Arthur F. Burrill, of Rock
Isla nd. The couple will make their home
in a nicely furnished cottage corner
Fourth avenue and Eighth street in this
city. The grcom is employed as a glass-
blower for the United Glass company.
On Wednesday morning at St. Joseph's
church Charles Zeis and Miss Anna Wein-
burcer were married by Rev. Father
Thomas Mackin. A reception followed
at the home of the bride's father, Martin

While the association is now ready for
business, the first regular meetire will
not be held until the first Thursday eve
ning in July, when it will meet at the
office of Jacks n & Hurst to make loans.
The great success that bus attended the
two other tssocintions of the same nature
in Rock Itland and the pros-peroue, steady
grwth of the city, fully warrants the be
lief that the new organization will pros

possesses as the result of the election of
of officers. All are experienced, pro
gressive representative business men.
While this is true as regards the
entire executive bo&rd, the association
has been ie:uliar!y fortunate in the
choice of its secretary who is to have
charge of the business in detail, R. A.
Donaldson. His long service as county
clerk fully tested h s worth and ability,
and made a record whirh won him the
confidence of the public, ad the friend
ship and good will of all our people.
The Home association is indeed to be
congratulated on its bright prospects,
viewing it from any standpoint.
