The bnlloan ascension and parachute
leap by Prof. W. R. Guli at th watch
tower yesterday afternoon was a decided
success, scarcely an opening being left
for the ever-present "croaker" to get in
his work. The start from th) island in
front of the tower was made at precisely
4:15 o'clock, tte balloon rising to an alti
tude of about 1,500 feet, when it struck
a current of air that carried it about' 400
yards to the east, and when it had ceased
to ascend the aeroniut cut loose with his
parachute and dropped like a shot a dis
tance of perhaps 200 feet, when the par
achute spread, after which the descent
was more gradual, the adventurer land
ing safely in a corn field not far
from the starting point. The
balloon lightened of its burden shot up
ward a few hundred feet further when it
collapsed and fell in a fiel 1 about a mile
away. It was a very successful ascension
and the crowd all went home salUtled,
scarcely any trouble having been exper
ienced by the street car company in
handling the crowd.
One feature of the entertainment which
had not been advertised was that of
Prof. Gould passing the hat for contribu
tion through the crowd just previous to
the ascension, which teemed somewhat
of the street bear act "No mona no
climba big pola" and was not naturally
received with much favor by the crod."
MOLIMTO LAHOIl DAY.

for the t eiebratton overaor Fifer
Invited.
The Ust meeting of the Libor day gen
eral committee in Moline was the most
enthusiastic yet held. All the sub com
mittees reported satisfactory progress.
The soliciting committee had been able to
approach but 10 of the merchants and
business men of that oi'y, but had bpn
very successful, having secured ST2.
They will go on and complete the work.
Nearly 109 invitations have been sent to
various organizitions to come and take
part in the celebration. The Brother
hood of Mschiaery raou'd'jrs. No. 68,
were included, being represented on the
general committee. This organization
coming in added 5 to the treasury, the
same amount as assessed from the others.
Following are the names of the com
mittee to CD-operale wita Moline from
Davenport and Rock Island, appointed
by the Tri-City Labor congress:

M. W. Battles,

Harry Bostock was preseht and in a
short address before the committee stated
that he could garantee cne thousand men
in the par's da from Davenport and Rick
Island. They would do all in their power
to make the day a memorable one. Mr
Bostock in his address also gave the com'
mittee some points gained from
perience. Samuel Gomper, president of
the federation of labor, could cot come
The committee is hopeful of having Gov
ernor Fifer present on the day of this cel
ebration, it being the feeling that the oc
casion is of sufficient importance to war
rant his excellency in coming provided be
is free to do so. Last year Governor
Boies participated in the. Davenport cele
bration, and it is felt that this demon
stration will in many respects be even
larger and grander than that.
The right to issue an official programme
was voted to P. H. Philebr, who will
have the exclusive right so far as the
sanction of the general committee goes

Moline' Attitude.
In commenting on the assertion made
by the Davenport Tribune that Moline
had not treated the street railway syndi
cate properly, the Dispatch adds:
In Moline there was a clear understand
ing with the company before any vork
was commenced. It may be that MoLne
asked too much of the company in de
manding one per cent of their gross re
ceipts, in lieu of taxes, we are inclined to
think they did. but the company see now
if they did not at the time that Moline
was right in insisting that a conductor
be put on the cars. We are not aware
there has been any trouble at all in the
city. Our peopie do not feel that they
have been treated justly in having their
name or tiie city taken from the cars and
stuck up oo a shingle at the top of the
car, and it is our impression that Davens
port would prefer protest under the same
circumstances.
The first part of tee Dispatch's remarks
is unquestionably correct, but that
which has reference to the lettering is ex
ceedingiy inconsistent, in view of the
fact that the name of neither city ap
peared on any of the cars until the eyn
dicate took possession. Then, before the
lines . were consolidated tinder the
name of the "Davenport & Rock Island
Railway company" in order to lessen com
plications in disposing of bonds, etc., the
name "Moline & Rock Island Railway
company" or "Union Street Railway
company" appeared on the cars, but the
syndicate was Hie first to inaugurate UU
plan, the old original company pajiag no
attention to either city. Now, since the
syndicate has adopted the name of the
bridge line as that of the entire system,
and has assumed obligations and respon
sibilities under thwt business title, of
course it cannot be changed, as the cars
IcttfTPil rr bt'lonoing to tho company are
purt of its cbitteU, aid an electric car is
quite a valuable piece of property as com
pared with some of the tor e cars we
used to have in the three cities a few
years ago. As far as the name goes, it
is at the top of the car that people look
anyway, and there Moline certain y is
given prominence, and on the old line its
business street, "Third avenue," stands
out above all else. Rock Inland could
with as much reason kick about this, but
it don't.

The funeral of William Hanlon. who
was killed on Mondty in Clinton, la., by
