determination to mi.ke the Rock Island
total $-'.") ,000. orht.lf its portion by the
next meeting of the committees Monday
night. This can be dote by proper work,
but each committee and every comniit
tetuian must do his share to accomplish
it. Let tbc solic tors, however, strive
with this end in vit-v hulf Roek Island's
portion is to be pledged by next Monday
night. There are two davs yet for work

The endorsement which the mterprise

ready to do their bh ire and may be de

the stock if there is iny to spare.
The following is the resolution in full

ular. Paul Alexander Johnstone, who so
mystified those atterding his recent exhi
bitions in Rock Island, was obliged to
appear before a Moiiticello audience last
week without bia dress suit. .His valises'
had been checked i t Cedar Rapids, but
strayed oyer to Oxford Junction, where
they remained out til night in the rain
and the contents were in no condition for
use when be received them. The Mcn
ticello Express says "on account of this
blunder, which deprived him of bis claw
hammer coat during the evening's per
formance, much to the distress
of t his mind. The pale, faced
mind reader has lodged a claim
against the C, M. & St. P. R'y company
for $2,500. In bis letter to the company
be said that bis is such a sensitive organ
ism that unless he operates in the dress
suit, which he is act ustomed to wearing,
he must necessarily overtax himself. De
says that the embarrassment of appear
ing before his Monticello audience wasso
intense and realistic 'that he would not
again go through th tortureBof that eve
ning, incident upon the loss of his bag
gage, for $3,000. The company has not
yet paid P. Alexander Johnstone's mod
est demands. But he probably knows
whether its officers have it in mind to do
so. It doesn't reqi.ire a mind-reader to
guess at that."
Aa it Klionld be.
A change in the running of passenger
engines on the C, R. I. & Py will occur
tomorrow whereby engine changes will
be made in Rock Ishnd instead of Dav
enport. This will probably bring a
number of new families to Rock Island
and will virtually m ike this city the end
of the passenger as well as the freight
divisions. Things ill then be as they
should have been before as this ia where
it properly belongs both as regards the
housing of engines snd track room.

It is doubtful if the i relitninary skir
mishes for a city eleciion were ever at
tended wiih h si noise ani activity among
politicians thau is characteristic of the
approachiue electioo. In tact there has
been no skiriiiis-bing at all. No one seems
to have much thought for anything but
the exposition project In which alt men
meet on a fair, equal and peaceful footing.
To merely allude to the surprise expressed
by one of the most prominent republicans
in the city on being told last evening that
the republican primaries were to be held
tonight, shows something of mi idea of
the political indifference generally man
ifested. The advance of the time for
holding the election miy and c"oub less
will revive the customary political
enthusiasm. Tonight the republicans
will meet in the different waidtand go
through the formalities of nominating
candidates. The forecast of the First ward
is that Aid. C. F. r.ladel will be renom
inatid. Ia the Second the p rty is in a
perplexity as to who to gel for Charlie
Durmann to knock out, but L V. Eck
hirtia being prominenlty spoken of as is
J. A. BGenung. Ii the Third, E.G.
Finkenscher is like-ly to be the victim. In
the Fourth W. P. Tindall would like
very much to be renominated but the
friends of W. A Euleb wi 1 make an ef
fort to nominate him. Io the Fifth there
is a put up job to give Charles E. Evans
the empty honor. The present alderman
is deserving of a better fate.
Charles O.iwald and John Boll
man are ftvori'.es for the nom
intion though. In the Sixth William
Kennedy will show that he knew what he
was talking about when he said he would
be renominated, while "W. F. Schroeder,
William Levy and F. G. Gall will contest
for the short term candidacy. In the Sev
enth there are to be two nominations, too,
and F. M. Sinnst, A. W. Williamson and
W. M. Johnson are so fsr announced as
willing to be sacrificed for Tie good of
the cause. Oihrrs will blossom forth to-.
night. There will probably be some in- j
slruc ion in the various wards as to the
township offices. An oppc-rrunity to
choose between William Gi.mble and
Bobtj Flynn for collector will t-e offered
and something said about renominating
J. II. Cleland for assessor, in the choice
and complexion of de!cnate3 to the city
to wnshiu convention.
Tomorrow nit.ht the democratic cau
cuses will beheld. The parly has abund
ance cf good matt rial In all the ward",
and betides rewarding fittful scryice of
present aldermtiuic incumbents will
take the setts at present ccrupud in
the council by republicans.

The literary and musical entertain
ment and sociable given by the Good
Teiapisrs at their hall last evening was
largely attended. About 100 were pres
ent ard listened to an interest icg pro
gramme, which consisted of a vocal duet
by O. H. Creel and Miss Lucy Coyne,
followed by the reading of "Over the
Hills to the Poor House" by Miss Battles,
after which the Misses Woltmann favored
those present with a zither duet. "Over
the Hills Frem the Poor House'' was then
recited by Mistt Fitzpatrick. This was
followed by an organ and violin duet by
the Misses Spencer, after which Miss
Kate Notmoyle recited "Where's An
nette?" Miss DeSanto followed with a
select reading, "Gone With a Handsomer
Man," and the programme was closed
with a recitation by Miss Cleland. R J.
Hazlilt, state secretary of the order, was
then introduced and made a few brief re
marks, after which elegant refreshments
were served by tl 5 ladies. It was a
pleasant affair in all respects.
D. J. Sears and wife were given a very
agreeable surprise at their home, 1125
Twenty-ninth street, on Wednesday eve
ning, the occision being Mr. Sears' forty
fourth birthday. The guests came amply
provided with loads of delicate viands
which were served by the ladies later in
the evening. A handsome china tea set
was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Sears as
a token of the high esteem in which they
are held by their many friends. The
company remained until a late hour, and
the evening was spent in as pleasant a
manner as could be wished for.
The members - and their families of
Rock Riyer lodge, A. O. TJ. W, cf Milan,
were the gat Bts of Island City lodge No.
4, of the same order, of this city, last eve
ning. About 100 came in from the city
by the Hennepin and were entertained in
a royal manner by the sister lodge of
this city. The principal feature was
dancing, and late in the evening a fine
supper was served to the gueats, and the
Milan folks returned borne feeling that
they had passed an exceedingly pleas
