Tbe canvass fbr s ibscription9 to stock
to the Twin-City C lumbian Espositiou
tins been energetically and systematically
begun all along the line. The Cbmpaign
was entered upon tlis morning with vim
an l enthusiasm whi :h insures the sue
cess of tbe proj"ct without a shadw of
doubt. The cbairii.cn of the various
committees are provided with printed inN
structions from theeneral officers of the
rommittte as to metaods of procedure,
manner of reportiLg. etc.
Last night's mass meetiDg at Hirpei'a
theatre started the bill to rolling. The
house was well filled wi'h as representai
tive a body of men as was ever gotten
ti gutter, when Cleuer's band opened tbe
exercises with an inspiring air.
At 8-15 o'clock. President Jackson, of
the Citizens' Improvement association,
stepped to tbe front of the stage and an
nounced that Major McConocbta had
been decided upon lo preside at the meet-
J iug, and that J W. Cavanaugh would
act as secretary. Mr. Cavanaush then
read the list of vice ( residents who were
invittd upon the staee, the cnmple.e
list of those upon the platform being
Aid. Corben. Tinda.l, Kennedy, Knox
j and Durmann. Mes-u. William Jackson,
G iver Olscn.E. FJ Uuyer, F. M. Sinnet,
David Don, W. F. Schroedtr.
J W. Cavanaugh, J L. Hias, H. II
Kobb. C. A. Rosander. J.E Lark en J,
W. Welch, John Oulweiler, Harry Bis
lock, Capt. J. M. Berdslcy. After some
more enlivening mus c by Bleuer's band
msde a few brief n marks in which he
spoke words of et ccuragement for the
infant project ard introduced E. II.
Gujer, who spoke of the enterprise and
pes'! t bat would be neceisiry tocarry
out this enterprise, ssying that all the
nuTuml cdvantages ii the world would
not bui!d a city withcut pluck acd ceur
ase. He then spoke of the early settlers
of 'bis vicinity who were content to plod
along in the beiten paths, but said that
the yourgcr generation lcokcd upon tbe
matter from a different standpoint, and
thU tbe time was close at hand when he
hoped Rock Island ci izens would show
their public spirit as never before. After
which he mentioned the phenomenal
growth of some of our western cities many
of them having taken a start years after
R ick Island's fame w is known, and in
this connection he mtntioned the weed
like growth of Wicl ita and the enter
prise and! push manifested by its cit.'z?ns
in spile of tbe many disadvantages. If
Rock Island wants to Me up with its com
petitors it must adot t tbe same meas
ures as these of o'.hcr cities who have suc
ceeded in'building themselves up. Mr.
Ouyer then spoke of the enterprise of
our city council in
ENCOURAGING ITItLK IMPROVEMENTS,
which are everywhere visible and hoped
that tbe goad work -vouid go on. He
then explained the obj ;ct of the meeting
and the purpose of organizing the expo
sition as-ociation, and in so doing paid a
compliment to a nunibi r of R ick Island's
former citiz :ns, who haye become famous
as railroad magnates, etc., which Le said
was Illustrative of tbe ability of our peo
ple if they were given an opportunity.
He then spoke in glo ving terms of the
unrivaled location of the proposed site
and explained in detail the plan of tbe
exposition, and at the same time men
tioned that all could jiio in the funher
ing of this enterprise which would be of
such inestimable benefl . to the commun
ity at large.
Oliver Olsen was nex. introduced. He
spoke of having been raised in the city
and of having noted the prcgr(83 . from
his boyhood. He then briefly outlined
the superb natural advaatages of thiB lo
cality and the disadvantages that had
been Ubored under in past years, which
virtually paralyzed the efforts of public
spirited men. He then congratulated our
citizens upon the fact that times of that
kind have pisstd and a!l that is now re
quired is for Rock Island to bestir itself,
aod'tbathe hoped to live to see the day
when it would be one of the
WONDEHOUS CITIEJ OF TBE GLORIOUS
Mr Olsen then mentioned that it would
be necessary for all t feel that they have
an interest in the city, and when the time
ccms to back this enterprise
for every (man to ?o down into
n:a pocket hnd Bimscrim; liberally
in the muter of inking stock. Iu closing
Mr. Olson bade the clJztaa of Rock Isl
and do their share townrds tbe en'e-prise,
and atsurd bis hetrera that every move
made looking toward the advancement
of the city's ioterest w a direct benefit
lo each and every one.
Harry Bostock was then introduced,
who spoke in a free and easy msnner of
how the proposed exposition would be of
vast benefit io ton community at large
and cited different enterprises lo illustrate
what great uccepse have sprung from
such small beginnings. He advanced
tbe idea of enlisting ib: interest of the
ladies and predicted that if this were
done the success of tbe undertaking
would be asMired. He called the atten
THOSE EMPLOYED IN THE SHOPS
as to bow i bey could give aid and stabil
ity to tbe enterprise, and closed with an
appeal to all working people to lend it
their hearty support.
William Jackson wasthe next to aldress
the auitence. ILi praised the citizens
of Rock Island for the hear.y iuJorse
ment they had given by lt-mling their
presence at the meeting, and assured
them that ibis alone wis almost enough
to assure its succ-ss as he had confidence
in the peop e of R ick Iland. ' He then
spoke of the concentrated efforts that
will be necessary to make Rock Island's
fume know n, and in this connection he
spoke of the syst m of public improve
ments that have been inaugurated and of
their inestimable value to the city. Mr.
Jackson mentioned that the first and
primary object should be to budj up the
city and that other eti'erprises would
naturally f jilow. If manufacturers are
wanted here we must show them an en
terprising spirit in order to cet them in
terested, and also saw them an attrac
tive city. He outlined
THE PLAN OF THE EXPOSITION
and described tbe advantages possessed by
the proposed site, nd then explaioed how
easy it would be for every working man
in the city to share in tbe enterprise, and
in closing asked everyone to put his
sho.lder to the wheel and give tbe under
taking his hearty support, and the Jesuit
would be one of the grandest successes
Rock Island has ever achieved.
James W. Cavanatigh was next intro
duced and spoke briefly of the plans that
have been prepared for the propose ex
position. He then called tha attention
of the laboring men to how easy it would
be for each aud everyone, to take shares
iu the enterprise, as one share wtuld
cost the nominal sum of 83 cents per
month. He outlined the advantages
that this locality had been given by nature,
and assured those prefect that when n
enterprise was being pushed by such men
as were at the head of tb s ore, it meant
success bejond a doubt E--ery thing
was now favorable and if the
LABOP.I. O MEN WOULD DO THEIK SHARE
success was assured.
J. W. Welch was called upon ard
spoke brii fly of tbe appropriateness of
the opening of tbe exposition in this tbe
Columbian year, and then in an able
manner described the grand results that
could be brought about by tue united
efforts of Moline and Rock Island and
called attention to the enterprise Rock
Island citizens had shown in the matter
of public improvements, and in closing
said he hoped that every man present
would cors d?r himself a committee to
go out and enlist the interest of his
neighbor to the end that Jt may prove a
Aid. Dan Corken sp 'k? a few words
of encouragement for the enterprise in
which he promised his hearty support,
after which the meeting closed.
Tbe use of the theatre was donated
free by Manager Montrose, the steam by
Clemann & Salzmann, aud tbe music by
B euer's band.
The Aegu8 will publish from day to
day a list of subscriptions to tbe capital
stock in this great enterpr'ss.
The army of solicitors, from what The
Argus can learn, is meeting with gratify
ing success, seme of the largest subscrip.
tions heard of being those of Ctirse &
Ohlweiler and Jutnes McElroy for S500
each, while any number of smaller
amounts are coming in. The farmers
are taking a lively interest in the matter.
Supervisor John A. Wilson, of Rural, to
day put his name down for a couple of
shares of stock , and expresses bis belief
that the farmers generally ought to bes
come financially identified with the un
dertaking. He is right.
The Moline committee on subscriptions
met last night and elected J. R. Cornwell
chairman aad W. R. Moore secretary. A
plan of sub-committee work, etc., was
adopted. Tbe committee meets again

The Uiiion reminds the public of a
great neg'ect. It would like to make Ex
Congressman W. H. Qest a subject of
charity, and speaking of tbe damages
which he alleges have been done to
bis property by reason of tbe change of
grade on Second avenue, and which he
asks of tbe courts ttiat the city be made
to pay him, it gives expression to these
words: "As a generous, warm-hearted
people, we tdmuld bave seen to it that
the damage was fully made good to him
there re communiti.s that' would not
have res:ed c intent until they had se
cured and presented io him the noblest
mansion in the city." Surely indeed
our people have been ignorant
of their duty to Mr. Gest if
there was any reason why they should
bui'd him a mansie'n after Ihey had de
c'ded they bad no more use for him in
congress. The people, however, thought
that $5,000 a year was sufficient ira
bursement for Mr Gest for whatever he
might bave done, and no one probably
thought eitberhe or his friends expected
the peeple to build him a bouse on his re
turn. However, the audacity of such a
proposition on the part of tbe Union
oufcht to be as insulting to Mr. G.'st as it
is ridiculous. It i9 on a pir with tbe
wonderful accomplishments it attributes
lo the congressman's work in congrets
and its contemptible abuse of ih prepent
congressman whose liberality and public
spirit cannot fail nf contrast with the ex
congressman's elispe9ition relative to pub
