The special ct mmittee to canvass the
agricultural districts for subscriptions to
Columbian association stock met last
evening at the tfllje of M. M. Sturgeon
and organized wkh the election of M. M.
Sturgeon as cbaiiman and R. A. Donald
son secretary. Plans for furthiring the
work wt re discus ed and the committee
now await the p'easure f a similar com
mittee to be appc inted by the Moline so
Tonight the Rock Island soliciting
committee meet again, and it is hoped
there will be a gcoi attendance ef mem
The txpositioi proj;ct is moving
steadily along now in Moline as well as
in Rock Island, and there is a radiancy of
hope along the way.
The Dieputch of last evening treats ef
the Republican-Journal's calamity shriek
of the previous evening as follows:
The Journal ot last evening announced
that the Columbian exposition is a failure
so far as Moline is concerned, and did all
it could to injure-the enterprise. Before
the paper had ?ot on the street C. II.
Deere had mbscribed $2,000 to the stock;
M. Rosenfleld f 1,000. and many other
subscriptions raoRing from $1,000 down
to S5U0 were in s ght. It may be that the
money will not be raised to complete
this enterprise, but with about $45,000
on paper now, almost enough to pur
chase the land, it is not a good time for
such a calamity article as appeared last
evening in the Journal. It is true that
the Journal is privileged to try and
kill tff the enterprises in which our peo
ple engage, if it wishes to, but it is not in
good taste for a member of the commit
tee of 21 that has the whole matter in
charge, as the.editor of the Journal is, to
announce that tt e project has failed and
thus give semi-c:H?.ial endorsement to the
statement. Itstould be understood that
this statement is not in any sense an offi
cial one, that the committee knew noth
ing of it as a committee, but that individ
ual members protested against any such
statement as early as yesterday morniog.
The principal subcommittee is actively
at work tcday, and it is believed by them
mat an amount ot money will be sub
scribed before m'cht that will give the
project a Doom that will secure all the
money needed w thin a month.
And the Republican Journal of last
The article in last evening's Republi
can-Journal seems to have succeeded in
awakening our citizens from their lethargy
in regard to the exposition enterprise, and
the manufacturers', bankers' and capital
ists' committee report having secured $ 10,
000 in their first 24 hours' work. This is
encouraging, and edows what Moline will
do when she gets down to business. It is
to be deplored that there has been so much
dillydallying in this matter. However,
the solicitors are now getting down to
hard work. Our citizens are at last
coming down with their subscriptions.
C. H. Deere has invested f 2.000. Mr.
Rosen 6eld, for tlac Moline Wagon com
pany, has put bis name down for 1,000
and other large subscriptions will follow
if the commit' ee pushes the work as it
intends to do . c ome who have subscribed
small will probably be icvited to increase
their investment to a respectable sum
Many will probably feel inclined to do
this if asked. fi general canvass has yet
been instituted tmong the masses. These
solicitors have teen waiting to see what
the manufacturers, bankers and capital
ists would do. We understand that the
solicitors will gire all an opportunity l
subscribe within the next few days.
The Chce of Politics IlrnlPd.
Rock Inland, III , March 31. Editor
Argus: Kindly allow us space in yeur
valuable paper to correct an impression
which might be produced by an associa
ted press article in your issue of 30th
inst., entitled "A Mining Company in
Politics," and which reads as follows:
'One of the boldest political schemes of
a national character ever planned in
Colorado has co:ne to light. The King
Solomon Mining Co., of Creede, has sent
agents to eastern cities to create a free
silver sentiment bi fore the conventions
meet at Minneapolis and Chicago." Be-,
ingthe sole representatives of the King
Solomon Mining and Milling Co. in the
easf. we desire to say that there
is no political significance whatever
associated with ourtffortsin the interests
of the company. We represent them on
a purely business basis, our efforts being
conflned to the placing of a limited
amount of the tieasury stock. The per
sonnel of the diirctory includes such men
as Senator William Gelder. Burvevor
Ut-neral E. U. Humphrey, S. K. Hooper.
George W. Robinson, etc. , and while they
are among the n.otst prominent and best
known business men in Colorado, they
re in no way desirous of UBing The
King Solomon alining and Milling Com
pany as a political leveragn. Respect
fully yours. A. A. Rick.

This -evening at Harper's theatre the
world's champion. Join L. Sullivan,
will make his initial bow to a Rock Isl
and audience as an actor, together with
the fayerite actor, Duncan B. Harrison.
An exchange says of them:
John L. Sullivan, the champion pugi
list, made his first appearance in this city
as a legitimate actor at the People's thea
tre last night in Duncan B. Harrison's
sensational drama called "Honest Hearts
and Willing Hands." and taking into
consideration the limited time he had to
prepare himself for his new departure, he
acquitted himself most creditably. He
was at a disadvantage for the teason that
the audience had come only to see Sulli
van, and whatever he did, no matter
how trivial, was the signal for ap
plause from the bouse, which was
frequently ilUtimed and likely to
be embarrassing: His part, that of
a young Iruh blacksmith, suits him to -a
dot, and as the author wisely furnished
him with nn Ions' and tedious sncer.hps
there is no tax made upon his declamatory
sonnies, isut he delivered the lines that
belong to the part with an ease and nat
uralness that were surprising, and if he
were to be judged simply upon bis per
formance last nicht. without anv refer.
ence to bis skill and fame as a pugilist,
the verdict would be a favorable one.
The nlav itself is novel, and the nlot
and counterplot strong and interesting.
Mr. Harrison has certainlv trained an
other laurel by his clever construction
ana nne, manly acting. The company is
away above the average, and the scenery
among tne cnest ever used intniscuy.
The great Modicska is to appear at the
Burtis, at Davenport, tomorrow evening.
and many Rock Island people who ad
mire this famous exponent of the highest
art of the stage, will attend.
There is no denying the popularity of
The Country Fair," nor its quaintness.
nor realism. It has jumped into instant
favor wherever presented, atd theatres
are everywhere tested to their capacity.
That its Metropolitan fame has reached
lere Is best evidenced by the large seat
sale in progress at Harper's theatre Mon
day evening, and play-goers who love
choice places are warned accordingly.
The play is a straight, laughable and pure
comedy, embellished with beautiful scen
ery and presenting a number of novel
effects, including a real horse race, which
is the greatest and most legitimate bit of
realism ever put in a play.
