It was S oclck when toe krst guests
armed, and from then on untii the time
Ue banq jet was cil'.el the Harper
house elevator was kept be -7 between the
first floor aad the floor oa which tbe re
ception room were situated. Along
string of carriages wa? constantly in front
of the d or. At 9 33 the banquet was
announced and te strains from BSeuer's
orchestra stationed in tbe ordinary the
march was taken up to the) dining ball.
Then it was that the necessity of seating
only a portion of the guests at a time be
came apparent, and when as many as
could be accommodated at a time were
given seats. President Welch of the Rock
Iiland post made a short and happy ad
dress, aspekicg of the object of tbe
association, being to better the condition
of traveling men, their social elevation
and to imcrove their acquaintance. Mr.
Welch spoke his gratification at seeing
eo many present, and expressed his spec
ial delight at the presence of the ladies
in such goodly number. He hoped all
would cc jay the occasion, and that this
would be but the beginning of a series ot
gatherings such as this, which would
come together once a year at least.
Tbe orchestra then struck up a joyous
air aad some time was spent ia doicg
jastice to tbe delightful spread Mine Host
Montrose bad prepared. At a suitable
season C. F. Gaetier called for a speech
from President mith, of the Davenport
post of tbe T. P. A., and that gentleman
responded ia a speech abounding in loy
alty to our local tri-city interests, and
eloquence. He viewed the three cities as
one common centre, a commn city that
should not be separated by a river wbich
should rather act as the heart cf the
three, through which wou'd 3w the life
blood of their commerce, witb the many
railroads ccnterin ' here a! arteries o
trade. He commended tbe idea of these
social gatherings an i o5.-r.;d some souad
adticeas to maintaining the society in
its highest aad best mission.
The taMe. were reset for thoe wqo
could not be served at the first tables, and
afur they had fully tested their appre
ciation ot the viands, tue floor was clears
ed and sow came tbe best part of the
evening's enjoyment. The floor commit
tee bad prepared an excellent programme
and it was 3 o'clock this morning when
the last strains of waltz died away, and
tbe first annual social of the Rock I-land
Travelers' association was ever.
