their mission, as well as of earnest and
concentrated acticn from this on, he offi

Office Citizens' Improvement Associa
tioD, Rock Island. 111., April 9
Every member of the soliciting corns
miutes for the exposition project should
be present at the rooms of tbe Citizens'
Inirnvt mt-nt association Monday evening
St 7:30 p. m., as each committee can
then In- fully advbed of the number of
subsf fibers ulrend r secured in its particu
lar fi Id, and can :ake Meps to secure
the niimes of tt e remainder. A full
mettir.g mi:st be l ad in order to be thor-ov.r-'i'y
ndvi'ed. Tli8 means that you
are t.o exception nd should be present.
Success depends on concerted effort, not
on the effort of 1 alf a dozen. Let no
one ditcourtige the others by his absence.
E H. Gutkii, Chairman,
H. P. Simpson. Secretary.
It is very necessary that the work of
securing subscriptions be most energeti
cally furthered from this on, as but a
short time intcrvt nes until the option ex
pires, when the first payment of $15,000
must be made ur on the land. As Tbe
Argus has reiterated there will be no
trouble in raisin; the money so far as
Rock Island is rencerned, at least, if the
committee entrusted with the important
duties of getting it, will but do what is
expected of them. Tbe money is here
and so is tbe interest, and tbe field has
only to be thoroughly and systematically
canvassed to bring about the results. To
accomplish this end and to devise better
and more suitable plans looking thereto
is the prime ob.ectof Monday night's
meeting, and H is therefore important
tbnt all committeemen attend.
People snould not regard their sab
scriptinas to tte Columbian exposition
as a donation, bat as an investment from
which they hope to realize a profitable re
turn. The laid if nothing else, irs ares
this and is worth a third more than the
price that is pail for it, for city lots. Tbe
attractions to be presented on the grounds
as source of revenue are innumerable, and
more are being suggested daily in addi
tion to those already contemplated, such
as tbe mechanical and art exposition at
one season and tbe countj agricultural
fair at another, electric light as well as
daylight races, pall park, skating course
in winter, etcampment and circus
grounds, etc. The enterprise is one that
merits the financial endorsement of every
one in the two cities wbo have under
taken it and it must not now fail. Should
these two cit es fall back now in their
joint endeavor it would be a blow to
their reputations that they would not
soon recover from. Let us all fully real
ize this fact, that the pride of the com
munity in which we reside is at stake
and then let every individual who has
identified himsjlf with this work turnout
Monday night determined that it shall
not fail if bis personal exertion can save
it . Then it n: ust succeed.
Chairman Stnrgeon and Secretary Don
aldson, of the t pecial committee on can
vassing tbe agricultural districts, have
prepared a neat and comprehensive sep
arate circular for distribution among the
farmers. It ir devot- d to the importance
of the agricultural feature, and referring
to tbe advantages or tbe site ana exposi
So far this undertaking has been met
with marked t pprobation . For this pur.
pose an option on a site of 26 acres, lying
half wav between the two cities, has
been secured, and it will be purchased
This site is now actuallv surrounded by
the two citieh.and inside of five years
from now, at the present rate of increase,
will be worth twice what it now costs. It
is in the very center of a system of elec
tric streetcar lines, which alone can han
dle with ease 75.000 people every day. It
can te reacbel without a transfer of cars
by every railroad line running into the
two cities. It is in tbe midst
of a splendid system of electric
lights, and can be made by night, if
desired, as bright as day. It is within
easy reach of the waterworks of both
cities, and with a radius of five miles
there is a population of at least 70,000
people. In o'.her words, it is surrounded
by conditions and circumstances to make
the undertaking a success At a general
meeting recer tly held for tbe purpose,
the question 'vas under consideration, as
to the enlarging upon tbe original desigu
and scope of the undertaking, and it was
decided to n Jt only have a mechanical
exposition, b it to include also an art and
agricultural exposition and county fair
as a prominent and permanent feature,
that shall be second to none in tbe state,
provided tbe farmers could be enlisted in

About election times, both before and
after, you may always count on Boss
Wells making an exhibition of himself.
He dearly lovea politics, and would like
to have people look upon him as the
wisehead of tbe republican party herea
bouts. He has sought to pose in that
attitude in every assemblage of the local
contingent of the adherents to the
diminishing faith, since that famous
telegram from Milan immortalized bis
name. And the worst of It is that he
never fails to display his ignorance, to the
extent of making a diabolical freak of
himself. Last election day the boss was
on hand as usual. After stationing one of
his carriers in the wards where there were
the closest contests, he himself put in
the greater part of the time working hard
at the Fourth ward polls, with the very
natural result that the ward went demo
cratic by a safe majority.
In the Third ward, however, where his
pet carrier resides the result was more
to the boss' liking at least so he has
boasted and the mult has been that -t
has taken considerable of an effort to
recover from the surprise of the day, and
at a late hour last night the boss pet car
rier bad not yet fully recovered from cele
brating the victory.
One of the ,most ludicrous incidents
that has occurred for sometiane in con-
nection with Boss Vv ells' pretended
morality in conducting his "custom made''
post official service was displayed in a
Second avenue business house yesterday
afternoon by this, his pet mail carrier.
The latter cwnein to the place mentioned,
for the purpose of showirg a new uni
form that had been furnished by the
I Philadelphia pants maker, and in so
doing he also gave a fine exhibition of
jast bow successful the boss has been in
carrying out Jhis prime law of sobriety.
From the appearance of the servant of
Uncle Sam just referred to, the mail
boxes were more numerous than usual.
and he seemed to see tbem every
where. His mail sack also contained
a different collection from that usually
taken from mail boxes which included a
bottle of a tonic nrennreH in Milwaukoo
bearing a label from one Schlitz, ot that
city, and which is commonly sold under
the more familiar name of beer. It also
contained a smaller . flat hnttlo nf
the variety usually termed flasks, partly
filled with some liquid from which eme
nated a loul buoquet, while tbe carrier
himself seemed to be orettv well filled
with a mixture of both, which it is
thought gave him the impression that he
