A Brllilaat Mpeeiaele Which aa Ef
fort Was Jlao ta caaeeal From
Rack Itlaael-Oar Owi Iltaatlna-
Davenport's third annual river carnival
occurred last night. The spectacle was a
brilliant presentation of Davenport's en
terprise and public spirit. The city on
the Iowa side has well earned the repu
tation of being "The Crcival City," and
there should be no disposition on the
part of neighboring Cities to share in the
distinction hereafter. A year ago, after
last year's carnival, Rock Llaud realizing
that it was reaping a benefit from the
carnival, expressed through The Argus
and other sources a desire to participate
la this year's event, not in the sense of
divesting Davenport of any of its honors
or glories, but merely in - the way of
contributions and cooperation to an
extent that would aid it in
making it more gorgeous ibis year.
ouch a disposition as not met in a
friendly spirit in Davenport however, and
was rather resented than encouraged.ar.d
the consequence was that the matter was
dropped. Rock Inland firms neverthe
less helped Davenport in the entertain
ment ot the visitors to the extent of over
$100 cath, and one business house here
contributed more than a (ingle Daven
port house. This city furthermore, in a
spirit of entire friendliness, illuminated
its city. bpencer square presented a
beautiful sight, while down Second ave
nue lanterns were strung on the cross
wires of the the railway company, lorm
ing a very pretty effect. First avenue
and Seventeenth, Eighteenth and Nine
teenth, between First and Second were
handsomely illum'nUed. The Harper
house and stores beneath, Lovd & Stew
art, the business houses of D. R. Bowlby,
McCabe Bros., Krell & Math, the Crown
restaurant, the offices of H. C. Wivill, M
M. Sturgeon, Ei. L'eberknecht, T. H.
Thomas, The Abgus. the Boston store
George Kingburg, Mclotire Bros. . The
Rock Island house, etc , were particulary
attractive while the Burlington ad the
amphitheatre on First avenue were hand
somely illuminated. At the amphitheatre
on the river front the Light Guard band
of Moline played.
And the crowds! It is doubtful if Rock
Island ever contained more people. The
amphitheatre seats on the levee were all
occupied, while every available particle
of space in the city otherwise was occu
pied. Carriages were massed in the
cross streets leading down to the river.
Rock Island turned out en masse and was
joined by her twin sister Moline, in wit
nessing the event. Added to this were
thousands of paople from abroad who
came to see Davenport's great carnival.
Now to the carnival. The floatilla
started promptly on time, and made its
appearance in good season. In point of
magnificence the spectacle itself sur
passed all previous efforts, though in
numbers it was not what it was a year
ago. Davenport, however, did not do
itself proud in the narrow deposition
manifested in the manner of conducting
the carnival. Not only were boats com
pelled to hug the Iowa shore in an effort
to spite Rock Island, but after
the carnival the excursion boats were
massed with a view of shutting out entire
ly from the view of those on this side the 1
pyrotechnic features, the ferry. Spencer,
strange to say, participating in the con
spiracy. Then the more elaborate pieces
of fireworks were not sent off until after
11 o'clock, and most of the people on
both sides of the river had gone home
disappointed, thereby missing the display
which was in every sense grand, and ems
braced some of the most marvelously
elaborate effects and designs ever seen
in the west. But they were in a meas
ure wasted, and through carrying out a
policy to spite Rock Island, not only
were many people in Davenport denied
the spectacle, but hundreds of strangers
went away from this city on truing at 11
o'clock, with an entirely wrong idea of
the nature of the display.
Further than this the attempt to conceal
the fireworks not only failed of its purpose
for thosD on this side witnessed
the best pieces from as advantageous a
position as if they were in Davenport, but
there was a great mistake in haying the
carnival, and also the barge from which
the fireworks were thown, so near the
Davenport shore that people in that city
who have been in the habit of witnessing
the carnival from the windows of build
ings up town, were denied the privilege.
The Argcs r.grets that Davenpoit
should have so grottly misconstrued the
disposition of Roc-r. Island toward the
carnival feature. This city bs viewed
the event merely in a spirit of friendli
nees, appreciation and pride, and the
spirit manifested over there did but do
Rock IcUnd ihe injury it did Davenport,
for there were thousands of strangers in
the city who went away disappointed.
The cities on' the Illinois side of the
river have at no time sought to deprve
Davenport of its distinction as the Carni
val city. Surely there will beoodisposi
tiontodo so hereafter.
B. F. Tiliinghast, managing editor of
the Davenport Democrat, who was in
Rock Island today, states that the Carni
val association had nothing to do with
the locating of .boats and that the enter
tainment committee of which he is a
member, had taken pains to advertise
Rock Island hotels, knoving that the
crowi from abroad could not be accom
modated in Davenport, and in f aet it was
xpectedihia side of the river would afford
a go yi view of the spectacle.
The great Swedish dialect comedy ' Ole
Olson" is to be presented at Harper's
theatre Friday evening. The Des Moices
Leader says this of it;
'The long-etpected gwedith comedy t
'Ole Olson,' was presented at Foster's
last night. The audiecce was the largest
for scm time, although the play had
been preceded by a number of well
known comedies of goed drawing powers.
A Swedish dialect comedy is a novelty,
yet the field is one in which managers
might have forseen the mint of gold
which it bss remained for Manager Shnnk
to unearth. O e Olson is a ereen Swede.
He hasn't been in this country long,
but has caught on to its ways pretty
well. After passing through a number
of ludicrous situatiocs he at last figures
in a dramatic scene, and plays the princi
pal part in foiling a heavy villain ami
bringing him to justice. But he does all
in a manner which keeps the audience in
a continual uproar. The author has
entered a field fraught with possibilities.
and he is making the most of them The
play is full of laughable incidents, and
there was not a time last night when the
audience whs in the least bored. It is
comedy good, clean, legitimate comedy,
of the sort which is enj oyed to the fullest
measure and a repe Uion longed for. It
is bound to be popular, and for a long
lime iu tne future me management may
be sure of being greeted by crowded
houses, as has been the rule ever since
the first presentation of the play.
