THE MASS MEETING.

- Hear the Colombian Exposition
At l ist night's meeting of the Rock
Island branch of the Twin-City Colum
bian committee the arrangements were
completed for the mass meeting at Har
per's theatre tomorrow night. The thea
tre has been donated free by Manager
Montros", while Clemann & Salzmann
will furnish the heat gratis, and Blcuer's
band has generously tendered the use of
its services. Messrs. William Jackson,
Oliver Olseu, E. H. Guyer, J. W. Cava
oaugh, J L. Haas and Henry Bostock
have agreed to make short addresses of
an explanatory nature, and a general ex
pression of sentiment will be invited. It
is hoped there will be a large turnout as
the meeting has been called in deference
to the wishes of some of the solicitation
committees who have been led to believe
from the inquiries made of them that an
ntelligent and comprehensive explana
tion of the purposes, scope and advan
tages of the Columbian undertaking in
which the twin-cities are equally inter
ested,, will facilitate the work of securing
subscriptions to the capital stock.
The following have been selected by
the Columbian committee to be recom
mended as the officers of the meeting;

I ask those who have come to regard
Carlyle as exacting and domineering
among associates to accept as the simple
truth the fact that during those weeks of
close and constant intercourse there was
not one word or act of his to the young
man who accompanied him unworthy of
an indulgent father. Of arrogance or im
patience not a shade. In debating the ar
rangements of the journey and all the
qtiestions in which fellow travelers have a
joint interest, instead of exercising the
authority to which his age and character
entitled him, he gave and took with com

Electric Railways In Creat Britain.
In September, 18S3, a railway of three
feet gauge, six miles in length, was opened
between Portrush and Bushmills, in the
north of Ireland., Various other short lines
have been opened at Bessbrooke and Newry,
in Ireland, and Blackpool, in Lancashire.
In 1890 an electric railway was opened
which is carried throsgh a snbway and is
8i miles in length, called the City and
South Ixradon railw&v. But all of these
together probably do not make a length of
thirty miles. Ixmdon TitrBits.
