Most of .the committers met at the

and ex r.ssed by motion a preference for
a mass meetiDg at Harper's theatre on
Wednesday evtning of this week if the
theatre can be secured, and left the mat

The Chicago I'ost thus outlines a new
through passenger route that is to be
opened betweer Chicago and Denver.
The Milwaukee & Su Paul has entered
the field as a conpetitor for the business,
and has arranged a combination with the
Builington by which it will be able to
send pa? sengcrs through without change.
Commencing Sunday, April 3, a first
class sleeping car route will be es
tablished betwean Chicago and Den
ver over the Milwaukee & St. Paul
from Chicago to Omaha and the
Burlington from Omaha to Den
ver. Trains will leave the Milwau
kee & St. Paul 1 epot there at 6 p. m
daily, arriving at Denver at "7 o'clock on
the morning of the second dny. They
will leave Denver at 8:30 p. m., arriving
in Chicago at 9.1:0 a. m. the second day.
This will enable the Milwaukee & St.
Paul to ticket business via Omaba to
Lin col u and all the principal points in
Nebraska, Colon da, Utah, Arizona, New
Mexico and Calilornia. The Post enthu
siastically says the sleeping cars to be
put on the route will be of the finest, and
tbis will be the only cltctr'c light line
west o Chicago, and it is believed this
nevv c mbinatior of two of the strongest
systems in the wi-st will result in the de

Some icquiry lias been made as to the
muddy appearance of the water which
comes from the city maics. Supt. Mur-
rin.when asked about the matter this
morning, said: ' The water which comes
from the river in so muddy because of
the breaking up of the ice that it is im
possible to take the stain out without
alum. This is the process empoyed in
Davenport and other cities, but we hardly
regard it necessary to involve that ad
ditional expense here. The filters are
working admirably and the water is thor
oughly cleansed of its impurities, but the
stain cannot be removed until the river
settles. The water is purified to the ex
tent that filtering science can make, but
it can only be changed of its muddy ap
pearance by artificial means. Tbis is
not necessary ."
St. Paul lodge, Knights of Pythias.hos
through a committee, practically com
pleted arrangements with Henry Carse
for a castle ball to be erected in accord'
ance with special designs on the north
side of Second avenue between Fifteenth
and Sixteenth streets, and the plans only
lack the approval of the lodge. If car
ried out Mr. Carse will put up a 3 -story
brick building wi h dimensions of 40 feet
front by 90 deep, the third floor to be de
voted to the Pythian cast'e hall, and the
other two for stores and offices.
The Waiting Opportunity.
The Twin City Columbian exposition is
a lively infant and ene which promises
to roach maturity in good time. The
business men of Hock Island and Moline
are putting their shoulders and their
pocket books to the project In a way
that means succesi. All the world loves
a lover and Daver port admires the pluck
with which its neighbors are working for
a project that mcst result in solid good.
Not hair enough has been done ia the
years that have gc ne to call the attention
of utsiders to the resources of this in
comparable loeality. When Nature so
generously spread her bounty she per
formed her full pert. Good business re
quires that the wi rid be informed of the
waiting opportunity. Davenport Dem
