ToDight the stockholders in Rock Isl
and and Moline in the Twin-City ball
club meet at the Peal houte in Moline.
Oa the attendance and aspect of the
meeting is contingent the success or fail
ure of the effort, in which the levers of
the game In the twin- cities have inter
ested themselves. Rjck Island has made
a good showing in soliciting the stock.
Moline his been making a move in
the same direction in the past day or two
and has rennded up a good subscription
list. If, at tonight's meeting there
appears to be enough stock sub
cribed to warrant those who have de
voted their time to the undertaking to go
ahead and organize the Twin-City base
ball club, directors and other officers will
be elected. If not, the base ball matter
will simply be eiroppel.
It is to be hoped most assuredly, that
sufficient encouragement will be offered to
warrant the formation of the club, and
that Rock Island and Moline may unite
in promoting and ei j ving the national
game this year as they have in bringing
about and furthering the great Twin-City

Hen. jillrhrltn Canal fchem.
At last nimbi's meeting of the Daven
port Business Men's association the fol
lowing resolutions presented by B. F.
Tillinghast were adopted:
Whereas, The location of the Illinois
and Mississippi canal, popular y known
as the Hennepin, has been fixed in accord
ance with an act of coneressand the sur
rey made by Capt. W. L. Marshall of the
United Slates engineer corps, has been
approved by the secretary of war. And
Vtheress, The fifty-first congress en
dorsed the plans and appropriated $500,
000. with which to begin the work of
construction, thereby re sfllrming its for
mer act. And
Whereas, the consideration at this time
of any other line for this proposed water
way designed to connect the Mississippi
river with the great inland lakes, wonl.i
be to doubt the wisdom of bo:h congress
and the engine-er corps. And
Whereas. It has been sought tore-oppn j
the question of route by Gen. C. A. Gil
cbriht in tails with business men, and in
newspaper interviews. Therefore be it
Resolved, By the Divenport Business
First. That we believe the rou'e
recommended by Capt. Marshall and ap
proved by all his superior flljers through
whose bands it has pissed, is the one
most practicable and desirable line for the
Second. That tr e discussion of other
routes, now that the national government
is fully pledged to a specific line, is un
wise, and in the nature of things must
adversely effect further favorable legisli
tion by coDgress.
Third. Thit we regard the so called
scheme of a "lorkhss canal" between
Lake Michigan and the mouth of Rock
river as visionary and unworthy the at
tention of thoughtful citizens on account
of differences in levels which can be only
overcome by locks
The secretary was instructed to for
ward copies of the foregoing to Iowa and
Illinois senators and representatives, to
Capt. Marshall, and to the secretary of
The Democrat also publishes a letter
from Capt. Marshall, from which it draws
the opinion that Gen. Gilchrist's scheme
is exceedingly visionary.
