WILL BE A -WINNER,
Rockldand Will Do Its Part for
tin- Columbian Exposition.
The ft mmitleea are UoIbk Their
imy fr the .if osc Part-Meet
A rata To.lghi at the In -piov.
The Twin-City Columbian exposition
has taken a fresh start in Rock hland
with tb j sun of the house to house can
vass by the committees delegated a week
ego, an I there is every, assurance that
Rock L land will come up with its v pro
portion of the $100,000, whether Moline
does er not . It matters not to thi
bat attitude our sister city take;. The
two cit es started out to raise $50,000
each, Bock Island has led in the enter
prise fiom the first, and it will be due to
no fault of this city if the project fails of
success . The impression that
exertia themselves to create, that. Mnlino
is not (loint its part and consequently
Rock Island has lost hope has failed of
us purpose. Rock Island has cone into
this th ngto win, and win it will if per
sistent work and unfailing determination
count for anything in this town.
Tne fct that the Twin-City base ball
orcanizitlon has lessed the McMaster
tract iamt diatfcJy east of the proposed
Coluabisn Fite, is no indication that the
origin 1 undertaking has failed. Not by
any meaDS. The committee :n charge of
the Cdumbian enterprise had desired that
the ball grounds be included in the
groun Is o.t which the option is held
until Mav 5, but the owntrs of the land
refusi d to let the ball club in until the
first pujment be made on the grounds.
The club therefore perfected i's lease
with Mr. McMsster in order that the
opening o! the easoj might not be de
layed, and with the hope that when the
Columbian association is fully organized
it wil assume the lease, having as it has,
abundant use fcr the grounds, and move
the purk into the Columbian grounds
proptr.ihe outlying leased grounds be
ing d sirhble for other purposes.
Tonight the soliciting committees are
to met at the rooms of the Rock Island
In- pDvjnn'nt association, and next Mon
day evening the finitl report is tx pec ted.
Let noone who has Rock Island's interests
at heurt be discounted; it is much easier
to lor k a: the da:k side of a great under
tbkiDg than the bri.Pbt side. It is easier
to dit coumge than to encourage a public
enterprise. Let no one be guilty of
throwing cold water on the project, no
inattt r wLat bis feelings with regard to
Sever le Part.

Another transfer of real estate has been
practically completed that will give the
city more improvements of a substantial
nature. H. A. Myers, of Eureka, the
father of Dr. Myers of ibis city, has de
cided to locate in Rock Island, where he
can be nearer to his Bon, and in view of
this they have purchased an acre and a
half of ground located on Moline avenue
opposite the Cable mansion, upon which
they will erect two handsome residences
of modern design, and otherwise improve
the property. The proposed improve
ments will necessitate the outlay of about
$10,000. Mr Myers. Sr. is at present
mayor of Eureka, and will probably move
to this city in the near future.
Dr. John Holdread, of St. Louis, has
associated himself with Dr. Myers and
wiil also locate here. He is a physician
of 11 years' pract'ee, bsing a graduate of
the Bellevue Medical college, of New
York, and the College of Phys:cians and
Surgeons, of Missouri, and will be a valu
able acquisition t3 the medical fraternity
of the city.
