At last night's meeting of the Twin
City committee at Moline action was
taken looking to the meeting of the
amount $14,100 due tomorrow. Chair
man Vtlit: biiog detained at home by ill

C. K;ator, who called the meeting to
order, named ss chairman. In addition
to the Rock Island members of the com
mittee of 21. Messrs. Henry Carsc, John
Oalweiler and Eli Mosenfelder were pres
ent from this city, while a number of
re present iti ve citizens of Moline were also
in attendance with the committee of that
The firm businees in order was the re
ception or'the report of the committee on
devisiDg means of meeting the option on
the Brooks tract which expires tomorrow,
and it was made through E. n. Guyer in
the share of a note to which a
number of representative citizens had ap
pended heir signatures and to which
there are indications that others will be
Bdded.andby thu negotiation of which
the money will be raised to meet tomor
row's obi gation..The land is to be secured
by President Jackson, of the Rock Island
Citizens' Improvement association, and
Chairman Velie, of the joint committee,
who hold the option, and who hold it in
trust for the Columbian association.
This secures the land as the property of
the association as soon as the required
stock is subscribed and an organizition
On motion the report was received and
the cocuriiiu-e continued, and the joint
committee then turntd its attention to the
KOUi.Tn OF JLLY
celebration, which is to the inaugural
feature 'f our joint Twin-City attrac
tions this year. It wae decided upon
motion cf P. 8. McGlynn that when tbe
committee ad journ it be to meet at the
rooms of tbe Rock Island Citizens' Im
provement association next Saturday eve
ning, when the Fourth of July celebra
tion shall be the special order of business.
A comm ute composed of S. 8. Davis,
B. C. Ktator, Eli Mosenftlder, E. H.
Guytr, John Ohlweiler and W. R. Moore
was nan ed to prepare an outline of a cel
ebration and to report to the Twin-City
committee Saturday night, after which
the manier of eelebratieg tbe day will be
carried rapidly forward.
Willism Jackson brought up the mat
ter of a suitable demonstration as a rati
fication of the purchase of this land for
the purposes designed, and suggested
sometime this month. The idea was
Popularly received.and a number of dates
were suggested, and after considerable
discussion the matter of fixing the date
and arranging for the same was referred
on Mr. Mitchell's motion, to the commit
tee on t ie Fourth of July celebration, to
report at the Saturday night meeting.
The move of the committee and the
other f. iends of public spirit in the
two citi.'S last night is probably the most
significant step that has yet been taken
by the cities of Rock Island and Moline
It is the crowning act in the enterprise
inaugurated last fall, and now that the
land is secured the last morsel of conso
lation t ) those who have found excuses
for opposing the enterprise has vanished
The fact that this valuable tract is now
practicf lly the property of the subscrib
ers and that every subscriber has an in
terest in it, it is believed will stimulate
the canvass in both cities and that there
will be no trouble in securing the remain
der of the $100,000 capital stock. As
Mr. Mi'chell put it last night, "this very
act I believe makes the securing of the
$100,010 an aesured fact. I have had
my doubts about raising that amount for
it is a great deal, although I have felt we
could g Jt the most of it. Now, however.
that we bave shown that we mean busi
ness all the way through, we will get the
1100 0(0, and there is no doubt of it."

Some time ago Isaih Hart, a colored
denizen of tbe lower end rented a house
from George Stodd, residing on Ninth
street, but be having failed to pay any
rent for three months, Mr. Stodd con
cluded to have him removed. Legal pas
pers were served, and yesterday was the
limitation of Hart's residence there, but
he had in the meantime takes in
another colored famiiv. and nn
apers had been served upon them
r. Hart moved out and the other mis
ter remained. Mr. Stodd vesterdav af-
moon attached a bose to his hydrant
and turned the water in on the colored
mily that still remained in the house.
This brought about a flank movement on
tbe part of the Hurt contingent, and in a
few moments it had gained possession of
the hose and turned it on the attacking
party. Then a scene followed in which
shot guns, etc , cut a prominent figure.
and in the evening Isaih saw blood on the
face of the moon and he returned to van
quish the foe, but further trouble was
appily averted. Magistrate Wiviil will
probably hear how it all came about tomorrow.
Berkhart Gaeger, a Swiss stranger on
his way to St. Louis on horseback, got
on an overload of intoxicants last nicht.
and was run in by tbe police on Thirty
eighth street. Magistrate Wivill fined
him $3 and costs this morning.
Dan Kane swore out a peace warrant
yesterday charging that his sister, Mrs.
Patrick Fennel, had threatened his life.
The case will be held before Magistrate
Wivill this evening.
AucnMtana to Have a Fair.
The Augustana University association
held an extra meeting Ust night at which
it was decided to make arrangements for
a university exposition or fair to culmi
nate at Rock Island in June, 1893. The
following were elected as committee to
draw up plans and do preliminary work
before the annual meeting, which will be
held in two weeks: Profs. J. E. Gustus
and P. J. Sjoblom, Messrs- A. G. Ander
son, of the Book Concern .H.Jacobson and
C. A. Rosander. Tbe meeting was
largely attended. Several enthusiastic
speeches were made. It is the firm inten
tion of the association to establish one of
tbe most prominent universities of the
west at Rock Island. They are confident
that with united push and energy they
will accomplish the same. Tbe associa
tion now numbers over 136 members.
Every effort will be made .to have the
Augustana synod hold its grand jubilee
at Rock Island and Moline in 1893.
Thousands of people will come to attend
the same, and see the institu'ion so dear
to them, and to which they have con
tributed so liberally. If the project is
carried through several thousand dollars
will be realized, and the university
grounds afterwards beautified and the
money put to valuable use for the insti
tution in general.
nr. Olaen tv Icave i n.
Oliyer Olsen has finally determined to
leave Rock Island and locate in a city
where the climate will be more congenial
to his health. Mr. Olsen has been a suf
ferer for some time, and since bis return
from the southwest he has not improved
as he hoped, although he found tis trip
highly beneficial to him. Mr. Olsen has
therefore reluctantly determined to move
further west Salt Lake City Leing prob
ably bis objective point. This announce
ment will cause general regret in Rock
Island, where Mr. OUen has re
sided since a child of 3 years. He
has grown up with Rock Island, partici
pating in all its struggles for advance'
ment, and mingling his own Strug
gles with those of the city. It is
such efforts that build up cities and
promote the individual in the affairs
of the world, and further his own
interests as well. Mr. Olsen is an exam'
pie in illustration of this fact. For
18 years he has been an active and suc
cessful practitioner at the Rock Island
county bar and in every sense one of Rock
Island's representative, influential and
progressive c'tizens. We wish him sue
cess in his new western home.
