Tbe Twin-City Columbian exposition
has been gaining ground gradually, but
surely, since the people, whose undertak
ing it IB, took hold c f it. From the first
Rock Island has stood ready to do its
part, and while the-e has been some en
ergetlc and successful work done in tbe
way of soliciting sul scriptions, not all of
the committees have made the effort they
should, in,' justice t) themselves and the
project. It is not such a difficult under
taking to secure subscriptions to this pro
j set. It requires bi t a little persistency
and an ? intelligent presentation of the
purpose and scope of the enterprise to
secure the subscription of practically
everybody. As said before, the money
is ready in I tbe majority of cases and is
simply awaiting the solicitation.
While Rock Island hts taken hold of
tbe matter with a vim and a spirit of
liberality that has btken the breath away
from the croaker, that individual has,
nevertheless, been a tempting to build up
a wall of obstruction to the enterprise in
tbe past day or so on the ground that Mo
line was going to fail in doing iti part and
tbertfore Rock Island need do no more.
Such an assertion is made with absolute
ly no knowledge of facts. In the first
place Moline is not going to fail, and it
would be no reason why Rack Inland
should go down with it, if it did. The
proud reputation of the twin-cities is at
stake, and when Ro k Island comes to the
front with its load.lMoline will not fail to
follow suit. Moline , in the first place,
had a later start tha i Rock Island, owing
to a combination of circumstances, but
has done well nevertheless. Rock Isl
and, however, is not accountable for
what Moline do. Rock Island
has started out to n.ise $50,000. So has
Moline. The joint undertaking on the
part of these two cities has gone abroad.
Outside cities are talking about it, and the
proportion each of the cities engaged in
the enterprise is tn do. Neither city
cn afford to fail, at d neither will. Cer
tainly one cannot bi cause the other does.
Rock Island has nade up its mind to
raise its share, and "when the time comes,
Rock Island as usut.l, will be on hand,
having done its duty. To the mind of
those who have been chiefly interested in
this great twin-ci y effort for several
months, there is no such word as fail.
Success is what tbe two cities are striving
for, and euccess will ccme. Tbat is the
watch-word and wi h it ever in mind and
view it will lead to un accomplishment of
the desired end despite every possible obstacle.

John Reynolds, a bariender from Dav
enport, was on this side of the river last
night, and didn't appear to be in just the
beat humor. YVhi e in a First avenue
sample room he wai ted someone to go on
an errand for him. George Willis did
the errand, and on returning reported to
Reynolds and tbe latter called Willis out
side, where, with hsrdly a word of wan?
ing, he ibegan to w pe up the sidewalk
with him. Willis' face was badly cut,
and when the police: interfered he was a
sorry looking sight. Officer Carlson ar
rested Reynolds and took him to police
headquarters where he put up collateral
for his appearance today.
Reynolds, when taken to the police
station again, got funny, and Officer
Suhaab found it necessary t take a drai;
out of him, which he did with neatm ss
and dispatch. When brought before
Magistrate Wivill U is morning ha was
assessed $15 and cists for his night off,
which he paid.
Dr. Henry Matthey. of Davenport, was

wife. Tbe doctor stopped and remon
strated with him an 1 with hardly a word
of reply tbe negrci drew a pocket kni'e
and stabbed tbe doctor in the face. Tbe
blade of tbe knif a penetrated his right
cheek, going through to the teeth, and
the blood poured fiom the wound ia a
stream. lbe doctor went to nis emce
and dressed the wound, and tbe matter
was reprrted to tl e police by O. John

who accompanied Officer Magee several
blocks up the latter street, in which di
rection the negro hud gone, until he was
captured near Sever th or Eighth. In his
pocket was found tie blood-stained knife
with which the cutting was done.

A case which may develop some sensa

notice of the proper authorities ia the
death of 17-year old Nellie Ford, wbirth

mnher, Mrs. Anna Ford, 732 Thirty

relatives learned that she had b -en sick
since a week ago last Monday night
when she came home sick from Moline.
The family states that on that evening
Miss Ford had gone up to Moline in com
pany with three other ladies, and that
tbe whole party went to the Peal hou e
where some dentists were pulling teeth
for the purpose of having some tee h
that were troubling her extracted. Wi en
she returned home that night she was tmt
feeling well, her head ached, and the
went to bed quite ill. Ia the
morning she was unable to arise. A
physician was called in who termed her mtl
a4y lung fever.later pneumonia and finally
