ciation was called to order bv We.Pi-M,
ident Henry Carse, who presided in the
ahsence of ;Prc6id nt Jackson. Mr.
Carse explained that Will R. Johnson
was the originator of the movement
which the meeting as called to consider
and he thereupon bc ngbt that gentleman
to esplain. Mr. Johnson stated that
britfly the object of the meeting was to
decide upon some p an of illumination of
Hock Island on the occasion of Daven
port's river carnival next Tuesday night,
and he desired an expression of the meet
ing as to ihe best mode of procedure.
The names of Messrs. J. E. Mobtrose,
E. I.Leveen, R. C. Willerton and W. J.
Kerr were proposed for member
ship at this juacture and elected
unanimously, and tae association then
proceeded with the discussion in hand.
Dr. W. A. Pul staled that there ap
peared to be a manifest desire ib the city
nut only to illuminate Tuesday night, but
to adopt oiber mean of enteitaining the
people who might come to Rock Ie'.and

Spencer square in particular Tuesday
night in honor of the carnival. An ex
tended discussion of the proposition fol
lowed, in which I. Leveen, A. C. Dart
Oliver Olsen, W. C. Mauckcr and others
participated, in which there was a general
expression in favor of an illumination,
the prevailing sentiment being that it
shouM be in a spirit of entire friendliness
to Davenport and in no way a counter
attraction, but entering in a spirit of
neighborly fritndiin'KS and co-operation,
the discussion culminating in the follow
ing resolution presen d by Dr. G- G
Cmig which was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That this association, in
spirit of neighborly friendliness, favor the

Kfsoived, that we favor the route on
'.! e norih side of U .ok liver, because the
enuul is to be conslrucitd for the great
commercial interests of the country and
lor those interests, we believe the north
side of the river is by far the most ad van
tneeous. The western "xrminu3 must be
a distributing point. Eome goods will go
up the river, some down, some west, north
and south by rail. Fac lities for loading.
unloading and storing must be furnished
at the terminus. Such facilities can be
bad on the north side. The north side
terminus furnishes a safe and commodious
harbor for boats, coming and going, and
which can be easily reicbed by rail. It
alo furnishes admirable locations for
warehouses and elevator;. The terminus
on the south side of the river offers no

The committee appointed bv last nisht's
Improve m mt Association meeting to illum-
nate for Tuesday night's Davenport car-
ival was out bright and early this morn
ing and by noon had its plans well under
way. A member of the committee went
to Davenport to learn the withes there as
to illuminating, and was told that Rock
Island could not shies any too bright
either on the river front or elsewhere, so
that the spirit shown in some quarters
there to belittle Rock Island's disposition
to contribute to the success of the carnN
Val is haooilv not indicative nt lh
feelings of the people in general or of those
having the cirnival arrangements in
charge. The plan of the locl r immittfi
is to illuminate Spencer t-quare gorgeous
ly, to illuminate the river front and the
electric liht towers on court hon
square, on Twenty-second and Fourth
avenue and on Twentieth street if the
Brush company does not object, and to
look after the illumination of as many
streets as possible.
The single aim of the association is not
in the least to detract from the brilliancy
or success of Davenport's spectacle, but
to contribute as far as possible to the
radiance of the occasion.
The committee will be glad to have all
who are so disposed contribute by pri
vate illumination or in money to the suc
cess of the display. There will be noth
ing of a pyrotechnic nature, as The Ar
gcs understands it, and nothing of that
kind has been contemplated from the
first merely an illumination in honor of
Urn, fit t nt.natnmrnt.

by constantly failing to cure with local

constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
