The Woman's Itelief Corps entertain
ment given for the benefit of needy old
soldit'M at Q. A.R. hall last evening was
attended by a larre audience and proved
a success in every respect. About 250
people were prestnt at the opening of
the musical and literary programme, the
fitst number on which was the singing
of "America" by -.he andimce. Rev. F.
W. Merrell then offered prayer after
which Mrs. L. C. Dougherty and Miss
Ethel Donghcrtv rendered a charming
piano duet. Mayor McConochia was
next introduced and made ashort address
in which he pictured scenes on southern
batik-fields that b ought back to many of
the veternns presi nt nunihries of camp
life in tbe sruth. At tbe conclusion of
his address Mis9 Delia Stone and Philip
Wells re-Ldtn d j iaio ted violin duet
which ws followed by a well rendered
recitation by Miss Edith (Juayle.
Mrs. W. B. B.-irker, Rev. F. W. Mer
rt:!l acd Suwal. Dodge then sani;
' Oh Restli ss Sua " Miss Clara Johnson
then favored the hjOie-nce with a recita
tion. The Aiisfef B-.-lie FuUom and May
CultoD m x. rccdi red a riano duet that
was wi-11 received, after which Sewall
Dodge ai.d Rev. I W. Merrell sang "On
the Fields of Olcry." which" recerve-d
much nierited applause. Mrs. Milton
Jonts nest gave u, humcrou3 recitation
which was followed by a pleasiDg vocal
duct by Rev and Mrs. Merrell. A reci
tation by Miss Bertha Johnson was fol
lowed by a vocal solo by Mrs. W. B.
Barker, a piano solo by Miss Mae John
son, and a song by Mattie and LouL
Jones, and the programme was closed
with the singing of "Marching Through
Georgia" by the audience. After tbe
close of the programme a fine supper was
served and a general social indulged in.
The affair was one of the pleasantect of
its kind ever given by the corps and was
greatly enjoyed ty everyone present.
The Union this morning in alluding to
the refusal of . Superintendent Parker, of
the Postal Telegmph company, to accept
the resignation of Miss Nellie Murray, its
local managerial es occasion to make an
otherj venomous thrust toward Toe
Alters, because of the stand taken by
this paper at the time the Postal corns
pany withdrew iu night office here. The
Arocs has made no personal attack oa
MjS3 Murray, nor would it so forget
itself as to approach on that
delicate ground. On the contrary
it has (.refrained from associating Miss
Murray in any wsy with the position in
sisted upon that the company should
keep its promises here and that it had
not only failed to provide a continuation
of the seivice vouched for when it sought
its ordinances herc. but failed to make
any particular effjrt to secure business.
At the time theil nion made its first ri
diculous assertion concerning Tue Akgcs'
position on the postal telegraph matter,
it was considered too absurd to notice, and
m reference wou'd be made to it now but
for tbVrepetition of a fity which -s no
more clear to any one than the friends of
the local manager, who have at this time
interceded for her retention here.

e. The meeting of tbe s'ockhol lers of the
new Twin City base ball team was held
at the Peal housn in Moline laet evening,
a large number of base ball enthusiasts
from both towrs being present. W. R.
Moore, of Moline, was called to the chair
and C. C. Hodges, of Rock Island, acted
as secretary. The stock books showid
that I3.C00 had been subscribad $2 000
of which bad been taken in Rock Island.
At least 500 mora is in sight, and it is
intended to make tbe capital stock $3.
500. It was decided to call it the Rock
Island & Moline base ball
club. It was decided also to secure
Harry Sage as manager, if suitable
erms could be agreed upon. On motion
it was decided to have each city select
three directors, in accordance with which,
C C. Hodges. Fred Woltmann and Ed
ward Ereis were selected from Rock Isl
and, and W R. Moore, Oscar Peal and J.
D. Chapman from Moliae. A meeting of
tbe directors was then held which was
later adjourned to meet agtin at the
Harper neuse at 3 o'clock this afternoon
when officers will be elected, a manager
decided upon, and the preliminary work
of getting in shape for beginning the
season will be arranged for. The pro
moters of thn club are very enthusiastic
and feel just pride in the success they
have thus far attained. Harry Sage will
undoubtedly be made manager of the
club as his experience in different leagues
and wide acquaintance with ball players
generally will well qualify him for tbe po
sition. He also enjoys the advantage of ,
being a fl st class player and would give
strength to the team. Applications for
positions from players in all sections of
tbe country have been received, from
which a team can no doubi be selected
that will gain for the twin-cities a place
