Tbut the twin-cities of Rock Iiland and
Molite will have a grand Columbian cel
ebration July 4, '92, has been an assured
fact for some time.
Th joint committee of the
two cities determined upon that
at the first met ting, and at.-o cin
sidered an elaborate programme for the
demonstration. This much practically
determined upon, the committee btgan
lookiig to the permanent exposition fea
ture. In pursuance of this end one of
the m )8t largely attended and enthusias
tic mtings the joint committee has jet
had was held last ever.irg at the rooms

mnect exposition project, a sub com
mittee was authorized to apply for incor
poration papers for a stock company
wiih capital stock of tlOO.OOO, divided
into 10,000 shares of $10 each. There
was a discussion as to the name acd a
number were suggested, including the
Missis ippi Columbian Association by
Capt. Lyen, the Moline & Rock Island
Mechanical Exposition by A C. Dart, the
Twin City Columbian Association by
Walter Johnson, the Rock Island & Mo
line TinCity Company by C. L. Walker,
and the Rock Island & 51 iline Mechani

Velie. The latter name seemed to meet
wun greatest favor and upon motion it
was adopted and under such name it will
be incorporated. There are other details
yet to perfect aod these the ccrnmittee
through its sub-committees properly ap
pointed for the purpose, already has well
Prior to the regular order of business
being ttken up a joint meeting of the
Citizen h' Improvement association and
the Mo ine Business Men's association
was held at which Capt. Bennett spoke
of the visit of G-'n. D. W. PUsler. chief
of ordntnee to R ck Island arse nil next
Monday, and of the propriety of the
tvin-ciiies extending him a reception,
aod peraaps a bauqaet. Remarks were
made also by William Jackson, A.C. Dart,
Dr. O. 3. Craig and Phil Mitchell, and
finally tae presidents of the two associa
tions wire instructed to select committees
from each association to act with them
selves in providing for the proper recep
tion to (ten. Flagler on his visit here next
Monday. The two presidents retired and
reported the folio wing committees, the two
presidents being included in accordance
with the sense of the motion:

wishes in the matter .
It is probable that the reception will
be held a', one of the buildings on the
island and it will be an evi
dence of the regard in which Gen. Flag
ler is held in the twin cities, the interests
of both of which, as commandant of
Rock Island arsenal, he so materially ad
vanced by his public spirit.

Another evidence ot Rock Island's
prosperity has been shown by one of its
most enterprising citizens, L. S. McCabe
purchasing of F. Ludolph the 30 feet of
ground on Third avenue adjoining Mr.
McCabe's property, at the corner of
Eighteenth street and Third avenue, the
consideration being $S,000.
ThisgWes Mr. McCabe a frontage of
120 feet cn Third avenue and a depth of
150 feet, txeept 50x60 feet owned by the
Union Printing company. Mr. McCabe
who has always been one of our most pros
gressive c tizBos intends to erect upon
the site a fivesstory steel office bui ding,
and as it would be one ot the most ad
vantageous sites in the city for a building
of this kind, it ia to be hoped that the
coming summer will witness its erection.

irvla Accident to Hlai,
The late George Courtney, the travel
ing engineer on the main line of the C ,
B. & Q. road, who was killed in the
frightful wreck at Monmouth the other
night, was a former Rock Island railroad
man, and it seemed as though ill fortune
wsb big vigilant pursuer. He originally
was an engineer on the old Rockford,
R.n:k Island & St. Louis, and when that
road was absorbed by the Burlington,
Couitney went over to the Rock Island
& Peoria. where he ' ran a
train for a few years. and
was one of the most trusted engineers in
the company's employ. Re used to run
the pay car and sll specials, etc In 1876
he was taking the pay car out one morn
ing and between Milan and Coal Valley
he ran into a brcken rail and the en
gine was ditched. Engineer C )urlney in
attempting to work the. reverse lever was
caujilit in such a position that he was un
able to move and it took thr e hours' time
to extricate him. In the meantime the
escspiog steam from a broken valve
poured down his leg and over the toes of
his left foot literally cooking the toes,
Mr. Courtney meanwhile, as a matter of
course, enduring frightful agonies.
As a result of the accident Mr. Court
ney was obliged to have four toes of his
left foot amputated which with the in
iuries to his leg made him a cripple the
remainder of his life.
After running on the Peoria for a num
ber of years Courtney went back to the
C, B. & Q. where he was given an en
gint on ;he miu lint. He was one of
tbe few engineers in the Burlington's em
ploy who were layal in the strike of a
tew sears ago, and in token of his servi
ces then he was elevated to the position
of traveling engineer, a position he had
still held and in tbe discharge of the du
ties uf which he met his terrible final
May Loae the Slant or ike Eye.
Tne lrjury to joung Peter Langbeh's
eye proves to have been more serious than
was kkown yesterday afternoon. Dr.
Kerns stated this morning that when he
arrived at Mr. Langbebn's and made an
exeunnatioa be saw that it was a' very
serious case, hence be desired counsel,
that he might not be unduly blamed
should tbe results of the necessary opera
tiqns be less successful than desired. The
cut in the eyeball was very deep and a
portion of the iris was protruding. Dr.
Kerns and Mr. Langbehn accompanied
tbe unfortunate boy to Dr. Peck's office in
Davenport, and after Dr. Peck had ex
amined the eye it was operated upon by
Dr. Kerns. A portion of tbe iris that was
protruding was removed and a few stitches
taken ia the eyebill, and a few in tbe eye
lid, that bad also been cut through. Dr.
Kerns has little hope of saving the sight
of the in j and right eye. but hopes that
sympathetic ophthalmy ol tbe left eye,
which might cause a serious injury to that
member, may be avoided. Moline Dis

a youthful horse thief named John Green,
aged 14, who has been working for Mr.
Quaintance and who at 3 o'clock on Wed'
nesday afternoon rode off on one of the
bet horses on the farm. He is known to
have passed through Rock Island yesler
day, and is believed to be beaded for
Oshkosh, .Wis., his home. The horse
which he stole was a chunky animal
with white hind foot and mane well worn
off. The boy, who is in his shirt sleeves,
attempted to sell the horse for $65 twice
between Cable and Rock Island.

.At 1:30 o'clock this afternoon Deputy
ShtriffT. 8. Sil vis closed the doors of
the London ClotbiDg company store by
virtue of three executions issued at Cam
bridge this morning by the clerk of tbe
circuit court of Henry county on a con
fession of judgment by ii. Joseph and
E. I. L tyeen, proprietors of the London
ClothiDg store. The three executions
amount to $11,150, and areas follows:
People's National bank of this city, $2,
100; Henr'y W. Marx, of St. Louis, $ 1,.
050; and Leopold Strass et si, of Cnicgo,
It is thought that the company's sheets
will meet all liabilities, and it is not im
probable that the company will again be
on its feet in a short time.
The misfortune which has thus over
taken one of R ck Inland's most enter
prising and libtrally disposed business
houses will be received with general re
gret by the eDtire public. There is prob
ably no enterprise in Rock Island which
bag done the city the SRtne amount cf
good in the way of advertising that the
Lond.in Las. It has advertised tbe city's
nt.me fur and w :d-, and the uutuu of the
firm has become a synonym tor pluck and
enterprise. No one will read of tbe Lon
don's reverse without r gtet. while all
will cherish the hope that the company
may be able to meet its obligations and
so adjust its d ffi ulties that it may
again be on its feet and doing business
at the old stand. The London's public
spirit L won iLc admii&wvJk of c.cfj
body, and it has been rewarded for its
liberal business policy by a healthy acd
growing trade. Mr. Leveen attributes
the troubles to the continuation of summer-like
weather beyond the time antici
pated.' Tbe stock of summer goods had
been pretty well diminii-hed and the
shelves replenished with goods more sea
sonable to tbia time of the ear. These
the firm was unable to dispose of. trade
fell o3 and a slight financial embarrass
ment was magnified and misrepresented
until it precipitated a run of creditors on
tbe business. Ths result was one of
those disasters which houses with many
times the financial backing of the Lon
don have failed to withstand.
-The London has justly been the pride
of Rock Island, and with the same degree
ot friendship with which the public has
manifested its appreciation of the Lon
don, will it hopefully anticipate the time,
not far distant at that, when the London
will flourish again.
A quit claim deed was filed for record
in tbe recorder a office at tbe court house
this aflernoon by which E. L Leveen and
G. Josephs of the London Clothing com'
pany, transfer to Samuel Leveen, of
Columbus, OMo, all interest in the lease
of ground upon which tbe store stands.
also the store and fixtures, the considera
tion being $1,923.50. Tbe ground was
oriitically leased by M. G Mills for 99
years from O. J. Dimick and Mr. Mills in
turn transferred it to tbe London corn
pany who erected the building.
