The meeting of tbe Columbian sub
committee on canvafsicg the agricultura1
districts, was not attended by all tbe
members last evening; on account of tbe
bad weather, although several were pres
ent, and an adjournment was taken until
tonight, when Chairman Sturgeon desires
the attendance of every committeeman at
his office. .The committee is composed of;
II. M. Sturgeon. It. A.Donaldson, Fred
Hass, Walter Johnson, Henry Carse,
William McEniry and T. S. Silvia.
Local interest in ti e Columbian project
continues to grow, but the soliciting
committees are not all working as they
should. Rock Ialaml ought to raise f 1,
000 a da; from this c n, and can do it by
proper effort on the part of those entrust
ed with subscription lists. Let every
man do his part.
The Moline Reputlican-Journal of last
evening, which has teen apparently en
couraging the project right along, takes a
strange shoot, though not a wholly unex
pected one, and as if to free itself of some
thing which has beer, on its mind right
along, it attempts to urgue that the expos
ition is not to be a go as far as Moline is
concerned. Of the reasons given by the
Republican-Journal for viewing the mat
ter in such a light, oae is the reluctance
with which Moline capitalists have inter
ested themselves; another, Moline does
not take kindly to at exposition located
in Rock Island, and Knottier still is, that
same of the prominent people of Rock
Island have been forlish enough to say
that the j iot effort of tbe two cities
would be a step in ti e direction of twin
city consolidation. The way in which
the Republican-Journal looks at the mats
ter has caused much feeling among
those of Moline's people who bave
interested themselves in the under
taking, and, as if to refute the
charge that Moline's capitalists were
reluctant about interesting themselves

of the representative men of the city have
determined to do so. Ia the light cf the
Republican-Journal article, failure tbat
might attend the tw n-city .effort would
bs chargeable to Moline.but the assertion
has had a good effect, and this morning
some of the leading orkers there said that
Moline would stand under no such charge,
that it was going a head with it portian
and might yet put liock Island to shame
by coming up with iu 50,000 first. x Of
course this would le distressing to tbe
Republican-Journal after having declared
itself se pointedly, but Moline will get
there nevertheless when tbe reputation of
the city is at stake.

raising $10,000 before noon a good half

A woman, perhaps 60 years of age, was
found by tbe police on Twentieth street
between Third and Faurth avenues early
this morning in a be astly state of intoxi
cation. She was taien to the armory in
tbe patrol wagon where she abused the
officers roundly for being arrested. She
has been employed in a restaurant on
Second avenue the past few months and
has always heretofore coc ducted herself
in a very orderly manner. Her employer
states that she was not given to the use
of spirits, and is of the opinion that the
woman has been dri gged. Her name is
Scott, and her home is in Iowa, but she
has been working in and about this city
for sL-veral months past. She was paid
off last night and natle arrangements to
go to her home in Iowa, but for some un
known reason she did not get started, and
was found this norning in the above
described condition. She is Btill under
the influence of the liquor or drug and
seems hardly conscious of her surroundings.

Seeing your chalk nge in last evening's
Auoua to match mj Notary or 3 year
old pacer, which challenge while being
very indefinite as :o conditions, etc., I
nevertheless accept on the following
terms: The match shall take place with
in 80 days or six wi eks as you may elect,
tbe contest to take place on the Rock Isl
and race track which is good enough
for me the stake to be $100, and I, as a
token of good faith, bave this"day de
posited f25 with The, Rock Island
A rqus, the match to be with your
Hiatoga stallion, or as long as you have
net mentioned your horse I agree to
match you In a free fo all contest on the
same conditions. I see no reason why
we should wait until tbe Davenport fair
week, but as it is te be a Rock Island
contest, it should be, held in Rock Island.

P. A. C. Peterson, a man of Swedish
nationality about 45 years of age, attemp
ted suicida , by cutting his wrist at the
police station this morning. Peterson has
been on a prolonged spree. He was run
in for drunkenness early this month and
wis fined. His spree then lost him bis
lob on the C , B & Q. work train and he
hes since sought to drown his sorrow in
the flowing bowl. Oa Sunday morning he
came to the police station and gave him
self up, saying that men were after him
of whom he was afraid. The officers saw
at once that he was suffering from a
drunken debauch, and was then on the
verge of the deliriums. He was locked
up and taken care of, and yesterday was
apparently getting along nicely. When
his supper was brought in last night
be in some way managed to keep
the knife unknown te the attendants,
and this morning becoming possessed of
the idea tbat two men were in front of his
cell who wanted to hang him, he slashed
himself across the right wrist to end his
existence before they could get hold of
him. He was discovered a few moments
later on the floor of his cell with his wrist
cut, from which the blood flowed pro
fusely. Dr. C. B . Kinyon was summoned
and found that the main artery bad been
severed, and the wonder is that be had
not bled to death before he was discov
ered. His in j jries were dressed by the
doctor and he immediately quieted down
and his mind is now pretty clear again.
He has no relatives in this country and
has been woiking about the city for sev
eral months. Tbe man will probably be
kept at the armory until he recovers
sufficiently to take care of himself.

The t'omliiloD of Sloline Aveoua at

AlfO In a Sliaerable I'undilion.
To all appearances It will be necessary
for tbe council to adopt some more
stringent measures in regard to the con
dition of Moline avenue at Thirty-ei,hth
street. As a result of the council s pre vious
action in the matter the paving
contractors, Edwards & Walsh dumped a
few loads of macadam into the chuck
hole at that point, and it is now in a
worse condition than before. It is now
not enly in a disgraceful but almost im
passable condition, it being often neces
sary for the drivers of vehicles to get out
right in the middle and assist in extricat
ing tbe poor beasts that get mired down.
Public safety demands that something be
done immediately to put the avenue in a
passable condition, as a number of acci
dents were barely averted there yesterday
FOCRTH AVENCE TOO
Rock Island. March 30. Fourth ave
nue is becoming almost impassable es
pecially between Fourteenth and Fif
teenth streets. It has become necessary
to bang out danger signals al one or two
places in order to avoid accidents.
Curbing and sidewalks are becoming mis
placed. Two men one day cleaning gutters
would eliminate this trouble, but I sup
pose tbe mayor thinks the people on
Fourth avenue are ' still in tbe usages of
the dark ages and need no attentions or
improvements. Citizen and tax payer on

matter of grounds which will be

days practice before the opening of tbe

want to get their grounds in shape as

idea of opening the season on the south
ern circuit, jit is understood that most
of the f roundi down there will be ready
first, and by so doing it would give the
upper clubs tore time to finish up their
There has been considerable discussion
here as to the propriety of a' double, in
stead of a single season. 'The major
league will this year depart from its usual
lines, and play under 'what is termed a
double championship season. As the term
indicates, the scheme means a division of
the playing season in two series, in each of
which a pennant will be contested for and
in the end, should different clubs win the
flags, a third championship series will be
played for the special or year's pennant.
In this case, the league will present three
distinct championship contests some
thing of a contrast to the old rule, when
only one dg is in sight all the season
and U en generally obscured to the vision
of all but two or three clubs, who; either
by exceptional playing or a lucky 6treak,
have clustered near the top. leaving the
remainder of the clubs to stmgle for the
minor honors. The Western league has
also adopted the same p'an, and no doubt
the I. -I. will follow suit and be in it with
bowels each day.
