Last night's meeting of the soliciting
committee of the Twin-City Columbhn
exposition at the rooms of the Rock Isl
and Citizens' Improvement association
was attended by most of the committee
chairmen ard many of the solicitors. It
was apparent from comparison of the re

committees wore not conking the exer

committees thould be credited with
the bulk of ti e work so far and that fcr
the remainder of the week at least there
should be renewed efforts all along the

The first intportant thing brought up
was the math r of renting levee room to
sand men so as not to infringe on the
present room for boats. It was Aid.
Knox's opiDicn that they should all be
unloaded in the vicinity of Twelfth street
where there is an abundance of room.
atd that all the levee room th&t can be
had in the renter of the city should be
kept for stcembOBts, and it was finally
decided that "he license committee be in
structed to C( nft.r with sand men with a
view of hav ng the boats unloaded at
Twelfth or TtiirtecLth streets.
An ordinance to amend the ordinance
passed at the last regular meeting pro
viding for the paving of Eist and West
Seventeenth streets and Fourteenth and
Fifteenth streets, was reported by Aid.
Bladcl, and as passed unanimously. Tte
ordinance as amended leaves out the pav
ing of Fifteenth street north of Second

ing for the lsying of a sewer on Seven

back and hunging fire for some time.
Aid Durmanti also spoke in favor of
passing the o dinance and it was passed
Aid. Kennedy introduced a resolution
providing that the waterworks superin

The public will recall the recent visit
to this city f f one Beaumont, of Men
mouth, who was held up by the Union as
an example of one of the representative
men of the d strict to whom Mr. Cable
owed bis political honors, and who had
not been suitubly rewarded for his labors.
A dispatch from Men mouth tells of this
exploit oc the part of Beaumont.
A sensation tl occurrence took place in
this city this evening, occasioned by an
tin warrantable attack on the person of J.
Iioss Carpenter by Walter Beaumont, a
well known local republican politician.
Mr. Carpenter is the editor of a weekly
paper called Truth, an anti-saloon advo
cate. Truth had published several com
municatirns e f late that reflected against
Mayor Taylor, Beaumont and other cele
brities. This evening Beaumont resolved
to wreak a wholesale revenge in the most
public part of the city. Be met Mr Car
penter and immediately drew a rawhide
and proceede i to severely punisu him .
But the pluciy editor not only resented
the attempt, but proved himself well
versed in the science of pugilism.as with
in a few seconds his assailant was dis
armed and severely chastised, regardless
of Qiieensben y rules.

A SAD PAilTIXG-
A Lonely Ftznre In Dorp Remorse
Uida Solemn A tile a to Fond Astiocl
Twa8 evening. As the penetrating
east wind, laden with its weight of fleecy
flakes of driving snow, sighed mournful
ly through the leafless limbs of the giant
trees of Spencer square, a corpulent, fa
miliar figure, wrapped in a great coat,
might have been seen silently wending
its way along Third avenue in the direc
tion of Twentieth street. To the casual
observer no special significance could be
attached to this melancholy form, as with
measured stride it plodded on, but had
the observer cautiously peered beneath
the broad brim of the large slouch hat
pulled low upon the bead, a face of in
describable sadness would have been
seen. Hard lines of care and
anxiety marked the once fair
and innocent features, while the
shadow of the hat rim together with the
gloom of the gathering shadows of night
made the face a picture of hollow mock
ery. Unmindful of the piercing blasts of
the biting wintry wind the figure moved
along until it reached a point opposite a
little old stone building on Third avenue,
about which clustered so many pleasant
memories of the lest and disUnt past.
Gathering his fluttering raiment about
his shivering form he stood, as the shades
of deepening gloom closed in about him
surveying the scene before him. The
low moan of the ruthless March wind
sent a shiver through his very soul and
as the rude gusts toyed with
the locks of long brown curly hair he
stood there the picture of sadness,
while his once classic features betrayed
despite his effort to conceal it, the an
guish of his deep despair . What is it,
that the dark form as it stands amid the
shades of falling night, watches with such
intense interest? A wagon is drawing
up to the side walk opposite and as the
stranee figure in black sees men moving
to and from the bouse bearing loads of
household effects a low moan breaks
from the firm set lips of the lonely man ,
as he stands with his band shading his
eyes and peering into the gloom, then
turning disconsolate he bows his head
in sorrow, and in bitter tears pours
out the anguish of his soul.
Long and silently he stands there
till at Ibst thf pargs "made more panga
ble"by an early dinner remindshim that 'tis
past the time to masticate his frugal eve
ning meal, he steals silently away from
"the field of his fame fresh and gory,"
and is lost to sight in the deep Bhadows
of swift approaching night.
From one who had been close enough
to this "Seatley" individual as he re
treated it Is learned he softly whipcred
in a manner somewhat reassuring, "we
will meet beyond the Via."
The t n trnl Church Conrert.
The Central Presbyterian church was
well filled last evening notwithstanding
the very disagreeable weather, with an
appreciative audience, to listen to the tal
ented McManis sisters. The first num
ber on the programme was a piano "Valse
Caprice," by Miss Alice McManis, fol
lowed by a whistling solo by Miss Liura
McManis, after which came a select
reading by Miss Nellie Wilson, which was
followed by a piano solo by Miss Alice
McManis. Miss Luir McManis, the
charming whistling soloist, then followed
with a solo "Queen of Hearts," which
was well received . After a well render
ed piano duet by the Misses Gest and
Connelly, a vocal quartette rendered a
pleasing selection, which was followed
by Miss McManis whistling the "Last
Rose of Summer." iibe was given a
hearty encore and responded with a beau
tiful rendition of "The Mocking Bird."
The entertainment was an excellent one
in every respect the audience expressing
its appreciation with hearty encores for
almost every number. '
The llrnnrpin Appropriation.
According to today's Washington dis
patches there will be included in the river
and harbor bill to be reported to congress
tomorrow, an appropriation of $51)0,000
for continuing the work of the Hennepin
canal, and it is stated that the
amount would be larger were it not for
the delay that has been suffered in hinder
ing the preliminary part of the undertak
ing. The fact that the Hennepin has not
been lost sight of despite the obstructions
that have been put in the way of pushing
the work, is evidence that our present
representative has not neglected his duty
as regards it .
