The TwinsCity Co umbian committee
meet again tonight at the rooms of the
Reek Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation, and tbe attendance of all
members who are ir. the city is ex
pected. The meeting promises to be one
of particular importance, as the appoint
ment of the committee on solicitation of
subscriptions to stock is to be an im
portant item. The joint committee is
anxious now to comp.eteits work, raise
the capital stock desired and turn the ex
position project over to the incorporators,
in tbe election of officers in which every
stockholder w:lt, of course, have a voice.
It is necessary to hme the full amount
of tte capital stock subscribed before the
incurj oration can be closed, but it is not
essential that it be all called in. The
method of collecting t ie dues adopted by
tbe committee will m-tke the payments
easy to ail subscribers. The shares are
to be placed at $10 each and
lIj $2.50 will be due on each share on
the organization of tbe company. Three
months later another 2.50. at six months
2 50 and the final $2 50 at the
end of a year's time. Consequently the
stockholders will hardly miss their sub
scriptions, aid in fact have a year's time
in which to pay for their shares. They
get them on the instalment plan and on
the most reasonable basis conceivable.
The exposition is intended, let The Argus
repeat, for all our people, a,nd it is that
the people who are to own and enjoy it
shall have the least buidensome methodjof
obtaining their property that tbe commit
tee has devised such a plan of payments.
That it will meet with the approval of
the masses of the pecple whose enter
prise this undertaking is, The Annus feels

last eveniog was large, and was swelled
considerably by four street car loads of
students from the Davenport Business

the audience. Tbe booths are doinsra
good business, and, although there are a
great many other attractions each eve
ning, the fair comes in for its (hare. This
evening the Q. T. quartette of Mollne.
will be on hand and delight tbe lovers of

will, at the same time, encourage those
who have labored so icdustriously for the
success oUhe fair.

Last evening Mr. Wooliey egiin ad
dressed a large audience in the Central
Presbyterian church on the subject of
temperance, directing bis remarks prin
c'pally to the drunkards. The oc
casion of drunkenness be did not regard
as a habit, or disease, or result of asso
ciation, so much as a disposition to sin,
common to all men. The remedy be
thought ws.s not to be found in an inter
ruption of tbe habit; in pledges or drugs,
but in tbe gospel of Jesus Cnrbt. His
own bitter experience, and remarkable
rescue, enabled Lim to speak with tte
pesiiiveuess of conviction, he said, and
at the same time with ereat sympathy for
the man enslaved by drink. Tbe meet
ings will continue until Friday night.
