Hork Inland's Columbian Fourth of
July Committee Organises Natur
day Xttht's nerilataat Ulscuaalan.
The committee designated by President
Jackeon of the Pock Island Citizens' Im
provement association to act in conjunc
tion with a similar committee from the
Moline Business Men's association on
plans and arrangements for the Twin
City Columbian celebration July 4, next,
met pursuant to President Jackson's call
at the rooms of the association Saturday
evening for the purpose of organizing.
There were present the following mebi
bers of the committee: John Crubaugh,
Phil Mixhell. A. C. Dart, Dr. G. G.
Craig, Dr. W. A. Paul. V. B. Ferguson,
Walter Johnson and H P. Simpson, the
absentees being Oliver Olsen and C. L.
Walker. The commute effected a tem
porary organisation with the election of
John Crubaugh as chairmau, and H. P.
Simpson secretary. Upon motion these
were later declared the permanent officers
of the committee.
In consideration of the f&ct that Capt.
M. W. Lyon, acting commandant at
Rock Island Arsenal, is a member ot the
joint twin-city committee, and in order
to be familiar with the entire workings
of both committees as well as the joint
committee he would find an advantage in
meeting with both as well as with the
joint committee, it was voted that an in
vitation be extended to Capt. Lyon to
join the Rock Inland committee at its
meetings hereafter, it being expected of
course, that similar action would be taken
by the Moline committee.
The secretary was instructed to notify
the Moline committee that the Rock Isl
and committee was organized and read;
for business, and awaited the Moline com
An informal discussion followed, in
which thtre was a general exchange of
views as to the nature of the Twic-City
celebration, the popular idea favoring a
grand historical, industrial and military
procession through the streets of both
cities in the morning, terminating on the
division line, where there might be ad
dresses by distinguished speakers, and
other features and perhaps the inaugura
tion of, a log pilace and mechanical expo
sition, which thereafter would prove a
permanent annual Twit-City attraction.
These, of course, were merely sugges
tions, as the foirual plan of celebration
must be developed, formulated and car
ried forth by the joint committee of the
twin cities when it shall meet.

The Diamond Jo line steamers Sidney
and Libbie Conger were both overdue last
night, but had not been heard from since
the day previous, when the Sidney was
aground at Hickory Chute. If the Lib
bie Conger gets through she will be sent
back as far as Dubuque, and will ply be
tween that point and St. Louis until a bet -ter
stage of water ensues. The Sidney
will be kept at work between here and
Qaincy as long as she can run. The
Pittsburg is also on the way don, but
will be laid up on arrival here. St. Louis
The Pittsburg, Capt. Killeen in com
mand, reached Burlington Friday from
the north. Being the last boat going
south, from points above Rock Island for
a few weeks, she carried 200 passengers.
At Hastings, while she was coming
through Glen Haven chute, a narrow,
winding passage, she sank a barge by
forcing it against a sandbar. A hole 20
feet long was opened on its side. The
barge was bulkheaded and raised, after
about three hoars' delay. When the
Pittsburg arrives at St. Louis she will
stay there until there is more water in
the channel than at present.
The United State snagboat Gen. Barn
ard arrived at St. Louis from La Croese,
Thursday. She has been proceeding leis
urely down the river, removing obstruc
tions from the channel. Capt. Durham
reports scant four feet of water in the
channel from St. Paul to Hastings, and
three feet from Hastings to Q iincy, with
the exception of the crossing at Otter isl
and, a short distance abive Burlington;
there the water is only three feet, and, as
the Gen. Barnard draws three feet six in
ches, some scientific steamboating was
done in making 'the passage. It took the
boat six hours to cross the river at that
point, and then its success was due to the
lifting by spars and the vigorous use of
the lines and the castan. In speaking
of the datum line for low water mark,
Capt. Durham said that nine inches for
an error should be deducted from the
gauge at Q iincy, which would reduce the
reading to the minimum record for 1864.
This shows that at St. Louis they are now
having the lowest stags of water wit
nessed during a navigation season for the
past 2? years between Q lincy and Dabu
que. The average is yet six inches above
the low water record of 1864.

The young man who peddled pens,
got hypnotized and sandbagged in Mo
line ail in one short week, meekly paid
up his board bill at the Belmont yester
day and departed, a sadder, and we hop
a wiser man than when he arrived, lie
seemed to evince much surprise and
sorrow that his talents in these various
directions were not better appreciated.
But later developments go to confirm
what we intimated io our first ac
count of the affair that it was a "fake,"
Three young men who were sitting on the
fence across the street during the time the
assault was said to have occurred, neither
aw nor heard anything of the struggle.
Dr. Sale bad just retired, but had not yet
gone to sleep, and knew nothing what
ever of the tearful tragedy that was tak
ing place a few feel from his opea win
dow. Thus, one by one, the props are
dropping from both the wonders of the mes
meric and the sandbagging sensations.

next stopping place the troupe visit re
