Last night the First Methodist church
was crowded to its utrarst capacity on
the occasion of the pastor Rtv. G. W.
Out's farewell tetuion prior lo his de
parture for fortland. Oregon. Over a
thousand people were present, and it
was an interesting service. Nine per
sons came forward and united with the
church. The large cborue choir did come
very fine singing. The hymns selected
were old just uch ks every oce could
sing and the pastor urged that as the
church was well supplied with hymnals
he wantea every one to join iu the eoo.8,
which all did wilb. a hearty will.
To add to the interest many of the
preachers were present frcm the M. E.
conference now in session at Moline.
They were here to join in the farewell
greeting to Mr. due. Among these was
Chaplain Lazier, of Iowa, who eaug sev
eral songs of his two composing.
Pastor Gue'e sermon was from the text
First John, 2:1S:
'It U tuelast time."
He sai.1 the aposllt-s and their di?cip'es
believed that they were in the last cay?,
and they certainly were in the last dispen
sation of tte world. "I am Handing to
night," he said, "for the last time in this
pulpit as your pastor. Four years have
passed with their joys and griefs, and
gratifying achievements. It would be a
pleasant task to take a retrospect of the
days gone by and tell you of my attach
ment for this church and the love I cher
ish in my soul for the people of this city.
"But I will not do this as I can occupy the
time to a better ad vantage As this is
my last time in this pulpit I will epeak to
you concerning loet things. You men
and women of business ate coming to
your last business dty. Men are coming
near to their last sinful amuse
ments. You are coming near to your
last Sabbath. You are coming near to
the last year of your life. He closed
by saying that our pleasant work together
has ended. It can't be changed. Some
things if I had a chance I would like to
change. I have enjoyed my work here
very much and I love you dearly. I will
treasure up your kindnesses, and here he
spoke some tender words regarding his
wife, whose failing health prtly induced
him to leave Rock Island for the far west.
These remarks were in connection with
things he said regarding the silver set
presented to.them at their 23 :h anniver
sary of their married life. He spoke
some complimentary words regarding our
city and its improvements; its churches,
schools, the G. A. It., etc. "I have tried
to treet all courteously," he said, in con
clusion, "preach plainly, and I leave with
a good will for all."
Mr. Que will preach to his old congre
gation at Peoria next Sunday, and then
return to Rock Island, leaving that eve
ning with his family for his new home at
Portland, via St. Paul.
For an hour after the service llast
night Mr. Gue's parishoners crowded
about him to bid him farewell and wish
him God speed.
Saturdays Varht Itarr.
The Caprice, Licy and Sarsh contested
for honors again Saturday afternoon, and
for the first time since merits were dis
puted a month or so ago, all three boats
got off together and treated what few
spectators happened to be on the river
front to an excellent race. The fact that
the race was to be held had not been an
nounced, and there were, therefore, tew
At 3:35 the Lucy and Sarsh crossed the
line and the Caprice followed 10 seconds
later, the three boats gliding away down
the river with mainsail aad jib spread to
12 knot breeze. Down about the red
buoy they went.and then back up stream,
turning the upper buoys as follows:
Caprice, 48J. Sarsh, 4:10, Lucy, 4:10J.
The course was gone over again and fin
ished at the starting point as follows:
Caprice, 4:49, Lucy, 4 54, Sarsh, 4:50.
The time of the boat?, it will be seen, was
1:24, 1:29 and 1:31, respectively. Z
The skippers of the three boats were:
Caprice, Dr. Hill; Lucy, Walter Johnson;
Sarsh, Norm Burdick.
The alaim of fire in the Fifth ward
about 150 yesterday afternoon was
caused by an incipient blaze on Twentieth
street, and was out before there was any
necessity for throwing water. The alarm,
however, served to demonstrate what may
be expected when our alarm system is
complete, and the electric alarm all in.
The hooks made splendid time to the up
per part of town, and if there bad been a
box in the immediate neighborhood for
accurate guidance, as there soon will be,
they would have been on band in two
minutes time, if not less. The Frank
lins, Gilpins and the discarded Cables,
of the yolunteer service, also made ex
cellent time, the down town company
having its curt driven by one of its mem
bers n complete negligee toilet, and he
picked up the chief on the way.
The only corrplexion powder in the
world that is without vulgarity, without
injury to the user and without doubt a
purifier, is Pozzoni's.

The members of the church hope to be
able to build a church ins de of another
year. The orfginal organization was
simply as a mission by sdvice of the
bishop. The txperiment has shown
sufficient strength, and the present or
ganization is as a parish. The next
move will be to incorpuate under the
laws of Illinois, and be in shape to ac
