Tonight's Conference and Banquet
at the Harper.
Promlno or Allaire Atiaanre From
Mollne raeroity r the Tri-
ItF Mtrret Railway Pir.
pmeef ilit Hrfiuc.
Managing Director Louderback hag noli,
fled Secretary Porter, of the Moline Busi
ness association that ne will provide suf
ficient cars for the transportation of all
members of the Moline Business associa
tion who wish to attend the banquet at
the Harper house tomorrow night. The
train will have to go by the blue line, as
the large trailers cancot make the curves
at the bridge cross. ng. It is neces
sary that all wl.o wish to go
le at the association rooms at 7:30
sharp. Th banquet is set for 8 o'clock,
and there is no time to waste in loitering.
It is hoped there will be a large represen
tation of our business men, and that the
fraternal relations that exm between the
two cities may be increased by the friend
ly intercourse of the evening. There
will be business transacted after the ban
quet in relation to the Columbian celebra
tion of the Fourth of .July, and though it
seems early to begin vork on that, it is
none too early if the celebration is to be
made what it oufi;ht to be. Let us have a
big train of men, who mean business, to
morrow nijiht. Moline Dispatch.
There is every indication that tonight's
conference of the two Business Men's as
sociations of Rock I.-land and Moline
wiU be a success, both as regards a pleas
ant time socially, and in results looking
to a grand TwinCitj Columbian celebra
tion on July 4, next. That such an effort
be made meets with tie hearty and en
thusiastic approval of the representative
citizens of both cities, and while the sen
timent has been growing in favor of such
a joint demonstration on July 4, next, in
cluding the planting of a silver brick be
tween the two cities, there have
also been many tuggestions about
taking steps looking to a permanent
annual Twin-city attraction on the divi
sion line, such as a met lacteal exhibition,
the firat of which it would be quite ap
propriate, indeed, to have next year.
While such results would naturally fol
low a Columbian celebration on such a
scale as is contemplated, it would not be
at all out of place to present any sugges
tions relating thereto tonight. The
C dumbian celebration of '93 should be
the first and prime top c of consideration
and such it is likely to be, and only such
movements as will te the outgrowth
of it ought properly to
receive consideration a permanent
Twin city exposition or annual demon
s'ration of any attractive nature being
most emphatically in order, nevertheless.
But the main point Tns Arocs desires to
suggest to the Twin city conference is
that the Columbian celebration on July 4
ntxt be not side-tracked or lost sight of
under any pretense whatever. It will be
a two fold patriotic occasion well worthy
of the celebration the Twin cities may ar
range for by beginning in time, and only
by beginning in time and devoting every
energy to the success of the undertaking.
Let us have the Twin city Columbian
July 4, 19&2, whatever else we do.

Secretary Welch reported that in mov

library, had been found and placed in a
box. He moved that they be donated to

Wheu the C, M. & St. P. train coming
west st-.pi.wl nt th- ' J ' crossing tibove
Albany last night, the trainmen noticed a
man board the cars, but Conductor Cum
mings couldn't discover the individual
among his passengers. After patroling
the coaches a couple of times without suc
cess, Ct nimings scratched h:s head in
amazement. He was positive the man
had boarded his train at the crossing, but
where had be disappeared to? That was
the question which pczzled John, but he
d-itermined to solve the mystery somehow.
So summoning his crew ho made known
the situation, and started all hands
upon a rigid investigation. Arriv
ing at Albany a hurried inspection
was made of the trucks, which
the genus tramp generally prefers to a
cushioned seat in the coach. In despair
the roof of the cars was suggested, and
there sure enough, on the front end of
the baggage car, was the much sought
for passenger. It is needless to add that
Cummings promptly invited him to
"comofl the perch," and proceeded to
lecture him for his dead-head propensities.

There have been a number of
cases of cholera in Davenport recently,
and one death from it and some from
cholera infantum. The disease has not
assumed the form of an epidemic as yet,
however, and there are no serious cases
and no great apprehension on the part of
the health department.
