stockholders, but Moline was without
representation, although & communica
tion was presented from that city that
those who were promoting the ball team
in that city had nearly $700, and ex pec

also had before it the proposition of the

H . - T , . . - .
uev. oicivee, ana an address or welcome
was delivered by Rev. W. T. Kerr and
response made by the president.
The first subject was ' The Relations of
the Furriers' Organizations to the Iosti-
iuic, uv donn u. ujoorne, wmcu was
discussed by a large number of members
and continued until the noon adjournment.
The afternoon session came together at
sociocuwiiQ l'resident Oiborne in the
chair. A delegation from Rock Island
and Moline w present and a6ked per
mission to bring before the institute the
subject of the mechanical exposition of
the twin-cities, which was granted, and
Oliver Olsen spoke on the subject; also
E. II Guyer and Dr. J. II. Matthews, o
Milan, after which the regular
gramme was taken up.
The subject "Fruit Culture." by N. K
Fluke of the eastern experimental station
of the state of Iowa, who presented the
subject in a very able paper, at the close
of which be was asked and answered
many questions covering aboat every
kind of fruit as well as the tree or bush it
grows upon, and a lone discussion fol
lowed, and at the close Dr. J . S Matthews
moved that the paper read by Mr. Fluke
be published and that the secretary fur
nish each member of the institute with a
copy which was carried.
The subjuct "How Shell the County
Maintain its Credit at the Expiration of
the Special Three Mill Tax! ' was taken
up by County Treasurer Thomas Camp
bell. His first proposition was 10 divide
in the middle the revenue derived from
the 114 saloons in the county wnich
amounts to $56,500 and put onehalf in
lue county treasury.
l lie second was to allow each town
ship to take care of its own poor, both of
wnith would need an act of the legista
ture. The third, to change the revenue
law so the levy would be one per cent or
one dollar on the hundred.
Fourth and last, for the board of super
visors to pass a resolution asking the peo
ple of the county to vote a 3 mill tax for
another four years. A general discussion
followed without coming to anv definite
Jee Fitzpatrick moved that the chair
appoint a committee of three on resolu
tions regarding the mechanical exposition
of the twin-cities, and tbe chair appointed
Joe Fi z patrick, S. W. Heath and i
Corbin as such committee. At the eve
ning session a large audience was present
and the whole evening was consumed in
discussing tbe able caper read bv Dr. J
S.Matthews on "Our Public Schools."
The chair ruled that the discussion
should be on tbe line of common schools
in tbe rural districts, but which, however,
wandered off tbe track.
The committee on resolutions reported
a set of resolutions in sympathy with tbe
mechanical exposition which was
adopted, and the usual vote of thanks to
tbe people of Milan, and tbe institute ad-
journed to meet at the call of the execu
