It is your duty to help the Twin-City
Columbian exposition project to the ex
tent ot your ability if you care anything
for the city in which you reside. You
are presented now with an opportunity to
financially aid a great public undertak
ing. Be your contribution ever so small
it is your part, and is necessary to the
success of the project. Do not neglect
Tonight the soliciting committees are
to make report to the general officers of
the committee at the rooms of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement association
and is is desirous that not only the chair
men, but every committeeman be pres
ent. -The A rous v ill hereafter publish a
daily report of the subscriptions with the
committees to which they are credited.
Every committee stould aim to make as
good a showing as possible tonight.
The Rock Island city council did a
handsome thing lad night in adopting
unanimously by a rising vote Aid. John
son's resolution commending the Column
bian exposition, thereby showing with
what spirit the enterprise is received by
the city authorities.
The Moline committee has called a
mass meeting at the auditorium in that
city tomorrow night to give the undertak
ing a proper send off before the committee
enter upon the formal canvass far sub
scriptions to stock. In that city as here,
the exposition is ha led with enthusiasm
by all classes of people and everybody is
desirous of doing his share toward mak
ing it a success.
A sample of how this enterprise is ap
preciated was furnished this morning.
A. number of Rock I ilacd engineers who
don't live here put their names down for
a number of shares, the only condition
they asked being that they be permitted
to payjtheir entire sul scription up at once.
Their names were taken on those terms.
"Rah for the engineers.
Keeplnc Ha Prailri Wlib a Tea
areaaee. Much indignation ttnd surprise is ex
pressed on account cf the disposition ot
the Postal Telegraph company to suspend
its night office here. At the time the
Moline city council v. as hampering the
company's entrance into that city and en
deavoring to make a provision in the
ordinances for a night office, the Postal
representatives here ( ave our citizens the
assurance that if allowed to come into the
city it would give Bock Island a per
manent night service, without any provi
sion Jstipulating the st me. Rock Island
gave the company it gateway into the
tri cities, and for this the company recip
rocated fcby giving Davenport a service
superior in every respect to Rock
Island from the .tint, but Rock Isl
and made no objection as long
as the company fulfilled its obligations.
To the Cable company belongs, to be
sure, the credit of getting from the West
ern Union the service ;hat the public de
served, but as it folio ed the Cable in
bettering the service, it will no doubt do
the same in the retrograde movement the
Cable has now adopted.
Rock Island asks no favors or accom
modations of the Ctble company. It
merely wants it to veri "y the promises it
made to the city counc 1 when it came in
here, that it would give the city a perma
nent night office and a first-class service
generally. Let the company make an
effort to secure business and give a ser
vice that will invite it,and it will find that
Rock Island will sustain it.
A very pleasant surprise was given

The assembly hall of. St. Joseph's
school on Second avenue was crowded to
its utmost capacity last night with friends
of the school to listen to a musical and
literary entertainment given by the senior

An excellent programme was presented,
opening with a hymn, "Ava Maria," by
the senior and junior choirs, which was
followed by a piauo trio by the Misses
Lucy McQuinn, Lillian Mulligan, Mary

by the Misses Nellie Bartbalow, Mary
fiein and Marguerite Grealish. A bur
lesque kazoo band by Messrs.Charles Mc
Hugb, James McOuinn, John Colligan

after which a quartette composed of the
Misses Mamie Maroney and Mamie Rich

mie Richards sang a solo, ' Waiting, "in a
charming manner, which was well re

was rendered in a very pleasing manner
by Miss Mamie Maroney, which merited
the warmest applause. The "Common
Chord," a prologue to which was read by
Miss May Brady, was admirably rendered
by Miss Alice Kane which closed the ex
ercises for the evening.
It was a very entertaining programme
throughout and gave evidences of much
careful training. Miss Bridget Roche
was accompanist on the piano.

important things at its regular monthly
meeting last evening.
