The fitst n etting of the soliciting com
mittees for the stock in the Moline &
Rock Island Mechanical Exposition asso
ciation was hi Id last evening at the rooms
of the Rock Islat d Citizens' Improvement
association. Ttu re was a good attend
ance of members and all tut three cf the
chairmen were pnsent. All the commit
tees Lad most cn :oursging reports of pro
gress to make, waile every committee re
porttd lists out vet to hear from.
Chairman Gujcr spoke of the limited
t:me in which to raise the stock desired.
The monej for tie option on the 20 acre
tract hud been pud over to the Brooks
heirs yesterday, snd the option papers
dating frcm March 5 were in the hands
of President Jackson, of the Rock Island
Improvement Association and Chairman
Yelij of the Twia-Citj Columbian com
mittee. It was necessary, Mr. Guyer
said, that after til the stock was pl.iced
that there be at least 15 ('ajsin which lo
prepare and serie the necessary incor
a'.ln papers, aid this must be done be
fore the fiist pajcirntof $15,000 could
be ma.de in teiuring the deed to the
property. Thus there was but about 42
days left in wh ch to canvass, and all
solicitors should woik with that fact in
President Jackson, of the Improve
ment association, spoke of the idle ropre
scntatiocs that h id been msde by a ftw
that the enterprise was one in which
eventually the hi; fish would devour the
little ones. Itw iulibe exceedingly un
healthy, Mr. Jnckson said for any one
man or any nua bcr of men to attempt
any fretze out pi-. me in this undertaking.
This is a public enterprise sustained by
popular subscription, and the man who
would ULdrrtake anything illegitimate or
unfair would be buried so deep we could
never Cod him again. No man could live
in this cuminunity who would do such a
thing. People who make such asser
tions about fretie cut schemes are aim
ply trying to get out of doing their duty.
Another thing, (aid Mr. Jackson, that
arouses the indignation of public spirited
mm is the indisposition of one or two
wealthy men wLo for years have been
fattened by this community to take
a proportionate amount of the stock.
' I believe," said Mr. Jackson, "in giv
ing all Euch men a fair opportunity to do
then part, and if they refuse, I believe
there will come a lime when we can
teach those men that they have missed
their opportunity and that it will cost
them something, too." The way in which
the people of all classes bad taken hold
of this enterprise. Mr. Jackson continued,
was one cf the grandest exhibitions of
public pride cud enterprise he had ever
seen. Keep on with the subscriptions,
every share counted, and the man who
took one or two i hares of stock shou'd
be counted as one who was willing to do
his share toward helping to advance bis
Speaking of the matter of fretz ng
out, said Mr. Gujer "I propose a remedy
and that is that the Improvement asso
ciation be vested with a proxy for 10
years to vote to atock. I lor one will
give the association such a proxy, and I
believe ail the stock holders will, and I
know from what -.he c fibers of the street
railway syndicate jaid while in Chicago,
that such a plan would be not only agree
able to them but desirable."
Remarks were tlso madd by John Oal
weiler, Uapt. J. M. Beardsley and Harry
Botock, and a motion by Dr. G. G.
Craig that President Jackson, of the Im
provement association, ard Chairman
Guyer, of the general soliciting commit
tee, be empowered to adopt a plan of gel
ticg the ladies interested in the project,
The fooling up the reports of the so
liciting committees thowed that nearly
$30,000 in subscriptions bad already been
secured in Rock Island including the
street railway syndicate's portion of $5,
000, but as Rock Island was entitled to
but half of that, if left the Rock Island
subscriptions abort $18,000 or over one
third if its proportion of the capital
stock, most gratifying showing indeed.
The committee decided to meet here
