The Twin-Cfty Columbian Celebration
comm ttee completed the duty assigned
to it by the joint meeting and banquet of
tbe Bi siness Men's associations of Rock
Island and Moline at the Harper house
last summer last evening, formulating its
report and recommendations which will
be rep rted to the second joint meeting
and banquet of . the two associations at
Milinerhursday evening. Thecoi mit'.ee
has had a much.more difficult task than
may be generall) conctded, and it has
requircdmuch work and no little care.
Tbe committee has aimed to carry out its
missiot: faithfully and with an eye to tbe
best in treats f both cities, and its re
port to be submitted Thursday night will
afford something of an idea of tbe labors
it has performed, while showing it the
same time that tbe great undertaking
which ii in hand is only just fairly en
tered u xm, and that those who care to
carry out any rtcommeuilations wbicb
t two associations may adopt will have
much ork to do.
At the meeting last night, J. W. Atkin
son, of Moline, wus called to tbe chair in
the abs nee of Chairman Velie, and the
report cf a sub-committee composed of
Dr. G. 3. Craig and W. B. Ftrguson, of
Rock Island, and B. C Eeator and M..T.
Cady, of Moline, was accepted with mod
iQcations and will be presented at the
meeting of the two associations at Moline
Thursday night for approval.
The :o!ine committee stated that ar
rapgemi nts were in hand for the joint
banquet at Moline Thursday night aid
that a meeting of the Moline Business
Men's association hd b -en called for to
night to complete cetails.
The Rock Island association will prob
a My meet at the rooms early in the even
ing and go up in a body. Manager
Louderbuck of tbe railway company, has
generously offered a train for the trans
porUtioti of the Rock Island association
to and fram Moline.
Tbe M 3line Diapstch commenting last
night on the twin city movement, said:
This (Columbian celebration idea is
growing daily in favor. The general
public bss learned enoueb of tbe plans of
the cuma.iltee to know that there is con
templated not only a fluictz twin-city
eelebratien of the tour hundredth Fourth
of July since the landing of Columbus,
but also tbe establiKhrnent of a perma
nent mecaanical exposition, which will
spread tbs fame of Moli-ie and Rock Isl
and, and attract visitors hither from sea
son to set son .
The id a is not to raise a big fund to
"blow in" all in one day. Instead, some
thing of a permanent nature and some
thing decidedly attractive is to be estab
lish' d, bet des having the Fourth of July
celebration to inaugurate tbe whole af

Adams' Relaatin end ike
Purchase efthe w Wat
The city council held another animated
session last evening which st times
brought forth some lively controversies
between tbe aldermen.
Aid. Corken began by speaking of the
feeling that existed outside the council in
reg-ird to that body's action in relation to
ex-A'd Adams' resignation, and as in
his opinion the council had not intended
to injure anyone, be moved to recon-ider
the action in regard to it. The ra-yor
then suggested that tbe aMetmin make
bis motion "to expunge from the record"
as the time for reconsideration should
have been at the previous meeting. Aid.
Corken then moved that 'he action taken
in regard to Aid. Adams' resignation be
stricken from the record . Aid. Huesing
objected on the grounds that as the min utes
of the previous meeting hd been
approved it was too late, and tint it could
not be stricken from the recotd.
The mayor was inclined to take the
same view of it, and he accordingly ruled

gentleman then appealed from the chsir's
decision and Aid Knox was first called to
the chair, and as tbe latter wisbed to
speak on the subject Aid. Evans was
called, and after some further discussion
Aid. Kennedy moved taut the chair be
sustained, and on- call of the vena and
nays it was carried by a vote of 6 to 5.
Aid. Huesing then secured the floor and
raised an objection to the manner in which
tbe contract had been 1st for the new
pump at the waterworks, claiming that it
was illegal and that the council had not
gone about it in the right manner. He
based his objections on legal sdvice which
be had obtained which was to tbe effect
that the city council could not legally
contract a debt for which no provision
had been made in tbe annual aDDro-
priatioDS. He then moved that the city at
torney be beard on the question, and thit.
being carried. City Attorney Haas said he
had not examined tbe ctse thoroughly in
all its bearings, and adJed that he did
not wish to be put on examination by the
alJerman who had cone outside tbe citv
attorney for legal advice, whereupon
Aid. Huesing said that he would withs
draw bis motion to hear tbe citv attor
ney, but Acting Mayor Evans ordered
that gentleman to proceed and he accord
ingly gave his opinion, which was to the
effect thht the city by virtue of an act
proyjded for cases of emergency might
contract an indebtedness if it was for the
public welfare and protection of its citi
zens, tbe set cited being particularly in
relation to waterworks.
After some further discussion on the
same subject tbe council adjourned.
