The Twtn-Oity Columbian Celebration
and Mechanic al Exposition committee met
pareuant to i s Wednesday afternoon ad
journment at the rooma of the Kock Island
Citizens' Imt rovement sssoci&ticn Satuis
day evening. Chairman Velie presided.and
there was a lurge attendance of members
from both cii ie, including Capt. Lyon
af Rock Islatd arsenl,and also President
Jackson and Secretary Searle of th
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation. Tie committee havinc- on rh
day of Ha pri vious meeting personally in
spected the Iirook's site originally recom
mended, and also the tract, whicb is a
part of the some estate titnated cast of
Eilgewocd laik, ',he purpose of Sat
urday niRht'H meeting was after mature
deliberation to definitely fix the location
of the expos tion t the end that a legal
option might be secured and the license
to incorporate the Moline & Rock Isl
and Mechanical Exposition association
secured, and the books tor subtcriptions
to stock opened.
It was reported that William Brooks,
representing the Brocks heirs, bad put a
price of tU'OO per acre on the strip east
of Edgewool park, the offer being con
ditional enti-ely on the association taking
the entire 55 acres, and that no part or
parcel would be disposed of at those fig
ures. The committee also had before it
the original 25-acre ttbet at $2,500 per
acre, and a Ungtby discussion was enter
ed into as to the merits of the two sites,
in which gentlemen from both cities ex
pressed thtir preferences. The two
tracts were compared, the original selec
tion of the committee of 25 acres amount
ing in price to $62, COO being spoken of
as more suitable to the purposes ' of the
committee, on the ground of accessibility,
being reached by the double track of the
street railwiy company, with a single
track running on three sides of it, with
three preat railroads running almost
through it, with every advantage for
switching purposes, as well as in view of
all passing trains, with water trains run
ning to the grounds and a paved thor
oughfare ct travel to Rock Iiland and
Moline. The grounds furthermore, were
in such Bha-e as to be more easily devel
oped for buildings and track purposes
than the otlier. A small diagram drawn
by Capt. Lyon, with a piece of string rep
resenting U e track, was exhibited to show
bow this feature could be provided, and
Mr. Cady, tae architect of the committee,
spoke of hew the track could be located,
with the buildings on the corners and
lake scoopel outin the middle, which could
be used as a skating park in the winter.
On the other hand the 55 acres would
cost i 82,50) to commence with, while
with the Vrhittig and Alday additions
necessary ti provide the race track, the
outlay wou'.d reach in the neighborhood
of $100,000 for land alone, while nothing
would be left for buildings; and the
site wonld not then be accessible for the
purposes. It was suggested that it
might be well for the committee to aban
don both s tes aud go back on the bluff
where cheaper land could be had and that
transportation wonld come to it.
A motion, however, that the sub-committee
on lands and location previously
selected, be instructed to secure a legal
option on tae lower Brooks tract was
adopted by an almost nnan'mons vote, an
amendment that efforts be made to secure
an option cn the nppcr piece or a part of
it, having teen defeated with but four
votes in lis favor. Mr. Guyer was sub
stituted by Chairman Velie for Mr. Olsen
on the cemmittee whose place on the
general committee he had taken by reason
of the latter's resignation, and the 'sub
committee was authorized to call to its aid
any legal advice it might desire to
secure the legal option on the best terms
possible, t ie verbal six weeks' option
being perfestly satisfactory to the com
mittee. but it was deemed desirable to
have it in lsgal form as an advantage in
securing subscriptions to the stock.
The committee has some elaborate
plans for it exposition, etc., and the
members ate very enthusiastic Ter the
prospect of the success of the enterprise.
Why do the Rock Island and other
rosds call some of their trains limited?
pint tbey are limited as to time.
Second they are limited as to the num
ber of cars and weight of train. Third
they are limited as to the class of cars.
Fourth they are hmitid as to the num
ber and class of passengers permitted
transportat ion thereon, this last limit bs
ing adopted so that tvery passenger may
have ample accommodation and not be
crowded or interfered with by any other
passengers. The fact that an additional
fare is charged on a limited train, and
further, th.it nothing but first class tickets
are accepted for passage, tends to limit
the class of travel which is carried.

iror several days pasta former resident
of Rock Island has been in the city in
quest of his wife, whom be avers is living
intnia city or Davenport with another
man. His story is to the effect that a
few months after their marriage he be
came aware of the fact for the first time
that his wife had been in trouble with
another man previous to her marriage to
him. This so enraged him that he left
her that very day with the determination
to never look upon her face again. He
lettlhat day without even telling her
good bye or where he was going, and she
nas not heard from him since. He went
west and tried .to forget his sorrow, but
the visions of bis wife ha unted him . He
could not rest at nL'ht. and a few dava
ago be resolved to come back to RDck
Island, seek oat the one he had deserted,
and in some measure atone for the in jus
tice he bad done in his hasty action. He
arrived here a few nays ago and began a
search for his wife but could not find her.
Oa Sitorday he learned through a friend
m a neighboring town, that his wife, af
ter waiting a number of months without
ever hearing a word from him. had taken
up with another man. and was now Jiv
ing with him la this city or DvenDort.
He has since made a thorough seaich of
the two towns without locating them, but
he still has all the confidence in the world
in his wife, however, and says that unless
the man with whom she is now livinp
had hounded her track she would not
have acted as she has. The police in this
city and Davenport have been unable to
locate them, but the irate husband says
he will not rest until he finds the pair
and settles wi:h the man who has led his
The Big Amnaemeat Event.
An eminent critic says. "The climax
of farcical fun never reaches New York
until the engagement ot Russell's come
dians in their incomparably tumorous
play. "The City Directory," commences.
This production is endorsed by the press
and public cf all the principal cities of
this country, and will be seen at Harper's
theatre tomorrow night. The New York
World says of it :
The crescendo of farcical fun reached
its final crtzs in this city five months ago,
when Russell's comedians first presented
that extreme of farce conception, "The
City Directory," and the extraordinary
success of this performance is best sum
med up in the fact that last night re
corded the 150(h of the production and
the huge audience laughed and applauded
with the same vim and vociferousnets
that was accorded the first pre
sentation. There has been given to
the public all manner or farcical
comedies, and all characters of farcical
comedy companies, but the counterpart
of Russell's Comedians and "The City
Directory." have yet lo be created and
organized. The humor of the play is
rich, the action spirited, the dialogue
bright and breezy. The situations aieeo
laughable that the audience cannot re
strain themselves, and involuntarily are
forced to give expression to their feelings
in rapturous applause. Old and young
enjoy the mirth nrovoking fun, because
it is novel and dissimilar to anything yet
It is safe to say no company of come
dians has ever developed so rapidly acd
obtained so strong a hold upon all classes
of theatre goers as has Russell's Comedi

The "Lillie McHeary Gaiety Boys and
Girls Company" played in Meline Satur
day evening and in Davenport yesterday
afternoon acd evening. As the name
suggests, it is not a company ot the
highest order, and considerable comment
is occasioned by the rumor that it was
joined yesterday by Miss Mary Hutchings
of this city. Her family decline to give
much information in regard to the matter,
but Mary has left home. She was seen
to board a train with the company for
Lyons this morning. She is quite a
skilled banjo player and singer. Those
who have beird her will regret exceed
ingly that she has not used her talents to

A Commission hits been appointed by the
present government whose duty is the
preservation of the monuments of Arabian
art; occasionally, therefore, in a mosque
one finds scaffolding in place and a general
dismantlement. One can only hope for
the best in much the same spirit in which
one banes when one sees the beautiful old
front of St. Mark's, Venice, gradually en
croached upon by the new raw timbers.
But in Cairo, at least, the work of repair
ing goea on very slowly; 800 mosques,
probably, out of the 400 still remain un
touched, and many of these are adorned
with a delicate beauty which is unrivaled.
I know noqueht soenchanting as a search
through the winding lanes of the old
tjUartera for these gems of Saracenic taste,
which no guide book has as yet chronicled,
n dragoman discovered. The street is so
narrow that your donkey fills almost all
space. Passers by are obliged to flatten
themselves against the walls in response to
the oriental adjurations of your donkey
boy behind: "Take heed, O maid!" "Your
foot, O chief !" Presently you see a mina
ret somewhere, but it is not always easy to
fiind the mosque to which it belongs, hid
den, perhaps, as it is, behind other build
ings in the crowded labryuth.
At length you observe a door with a dab
or two of the well known Saracenic honey
comb work al)ove it; instantly you dis
mount, climb the stops, and look iu. You
are almost sure to fiud treasures, either
fragments of the pearly Cairo mosaic, or a
wonderful ceiling, or gilded Kulic (old
Arabian text) inscriptions aud arabesques,
or remains of the ancient colored glass
which changes its tint hour by hour. Best
of all, sometimes you find a space open to
the sky, with a fountain in the center, the
whole surrounded by arcades of marble
columns adorned with hanging lamps (or
rather with the bronze chains which once
carried the lamps), and wit h suspended os
trich eggs the emblems of good luck.
One day, when my donkey was making
his way througii a dilapidated region, I
came upon a mosque so small that it
seemed hardly more than a base for its ex
quisite minaret, which towered to an un
usual height above it. Of course I dis
mounted. The little mosque was open, but
as it was never visited by strangers it pos
sessed no slippers, and' without coverings
ot some kind it was impossible that uu
sanctilied shoes, such as mine, should touch
its matted floor; the bent, ancient guardian
glared at me fiercely for the mere sugges
tion. One sees sometimes in the eyes of
old men sitting in the mosques the original
6pirit of Islam shining still. Once their re
ligion commanded the sword; they would
like to grasp it again if tbey could.
It was suggested that the matting
might, for a baksheesh, be rolled up and
put away, as the place was small. But the
stern old keeper remained inflexible. Then
the offer was made that so many piasters
ten (that is, fifty cents) would be given
to the blind. Now the bti nd are sacred iu
Cairo; this offer, therefore, was success
ful; all the matting was carefully rolled
aud stacked in a corner, the three or four
Moslems present withdrew to the door
and the unbeliever was allowed to enter.
She found herself in a temple of color
which was incredibly rich. The floor was
of delicate marble, and every inch of the
walls was covered with a mosaic of por
phyry and jasper, adorned with gilded in
scriptions and bands of Kulic text; l td tall
pulpit, made of mahogany colored wood.
was carved from top to bottom in intricate
designs and ornamented with odd little
plaques of fretted bronze; the sacred niche
Was lined with alabaster, turquoise and
gleaming mother of pearl; the only light
came through the thick glass of the small
windows far above, in downward falling
rays of crimson, violet and gold. The old
mosaic worli of t he Cairo mosques is com
posed of smail plates of marble and of
mother of pearl arranged in geometrical-
designs; the delicacy of the minute cubes
employed, and the intricacy of the pat
terns are marvelous; the color is faint.
r.uless the turquoise has been added; but
the Klitter of the mother of pearl gives the
whole an appearance like tuat of jewelry.
Cponour departure five blind men were
found drawn up in a line at the door. It
would not have been difficult to collect
fifty. Constance Fenimore Woolson in
