The Brooks Tract Secured
THE TRANSACTION TODAY.
Messrs William Jackson and S. H.
Velie Bold the Deed.
HOW $14,000 WAS PROVIDED FOR.
A" Itret.tlB Uocament as Mteorlty
H w tttn People' ProJ et Was
oea Fiondly w
for a Fresh Effort.
The 2iJ acres of ground situated be
tween Rock Island and Moline ! is no
longer the property of the heirs of the
late WiLittm Brooks bj whom it has been
he'.d so 1 ng. It is now virtually in the
possession of the Twin-City Columbian
association, for which organization when
perfected, it is held in trust by Messrs.
William Jackson, president of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement association,
aid S. H . Velie, chairman of the f win-
City Colombian committee.
The deed transferring the land passed
into the hands of Mecsrs. Jackson and
Velie toilay on the expiration of the Op
tion, which those public spirited
gentlemen secured 60 days ago
in behalf of the joint committee in charge
of the Columbian enterprise. The first
payment of $14,000 which with the tl,
000 aires dy held by the owners of the
estate, makes $15,000, was made in cash,
the mom y being secured fr. m the Rock
Island Suvicgs bank and the State Sav
ings ban i, of Moline, who are secured by
what arc probably the stroDgest promi
sory notes that have ever been presented
to a bar k in the three cities, for a like
amount. These notes are for $7,000
each, one held by each bank, and are
payable in one year from date. The same
signatures are on both aoles.and a glance
at the stine will be convincing proof of the
rtdomrnect the representative men of
both citi s are ready to give the project.
The notes are iu fact good for any
amount of money that might be desired
on thim, and Phil Mitchell stated in Mo
line Mon Jay night that he would be glad
to give four times the emount solicited
with llii in as security, if it were needed.
This too, before half the names that now
appear o-i the face of the note were ob
tained. The names of the makers of the
notes apjK'ar below:

' Messrs. Velie and Jacksonare secured by
a declaration of trust, and they execute the
ptircbssa money by means of a mortgage
amounting to f 37. COO, bearing interest
at six per cent, due in three annual in
stallment)). This makes the total of
$52,000 r quired for the land.
In looking over these names the highly
gratifjiD- fact will appear that Moline
has done is share abundantly, and now
that th6 Eien of wealth and influence in
that city have thus tvtnced their confi
dence in the undirtaking in the strong
est way possible, there is no doubt that
the masses of the people in that city will
do their jart, as Tns A rocs has felt as
sured from the first they would do even
tually. And now that it only remains to
complete the organization by raising the
capital stock stipulated in the articles of
incorporation, to secure the title of the
land which Mesers Jackson and Velie hold
for that purpose expressly, there is no
possibility of doubt the solicitors will re
double th;ir i Aorta and that the remainder
of the stock will be forthcoming. Rock
Island has $35,000 in actual bona fide
subscript sub formally entered upon the
books of the general officers of the so
liciting conmittee, while there are out
standing l.sls with (2,000 or $3,000 upon
them. Tli at this city will go in and raise
the remainder of its proportion it is hard
ly necessa-y to say.
In Moline the enthusiasm Is re-awaks
ened. The people are taking hold of the
Columbian with a vigor not characteristic
of their fir a efforts, and which will prove
a forcible repudiation of the report that
baa been circulated that Moline is not in
it. Molin 3 in truth cannot go back on
the enterp -ise now without evincing a
lack of confidence in its representative
citizens who have assumed this obliga
tion for their benefit. The same may be
said of Rock Island . The public spirited
people of both cities have done their duty.

THE Y. M. C A. BUILDING.
Ita Speedy Completion
An informal gathering of a few of our
business men who are especially interest
ed in the work of the Young Men' Chris
tian association, was held last evening at
a private residence. Although haEtily
called together the result was most grati
fying. as it will result most probably in
the completion of the building in the near
future. After a full discission of the
matter a subscription was started with a
view to raising the full $18,000 which is
required to pay the debt and complete
the building; $9,650 was pledged by
those present on condition that the whole
amount be secured.
The subscription of Weyerhauser &
Denkmann of $5,000 was of the greatest
help, and success is due v. ry largely to
their generosity. Without any special
effort on the part of the building commit
tee other subscriptions have been secured
which will increase the total to $11,000.

The Twin-City team dropped another
game to . Terre Haute yesterday which
closed the series there, and our boys will
meet Evansville for the first time tomor
row on the latter'a grounds. The feature
of yesterday's game was errorless playing
and is said to have been one of the pret
tiest games ever witnessed in Terre
Haute. A large crowd was present and
the work of both pitchers was of the best.
Only one error was made in the game,
the Twin-City s being credited with It.
Bartson and Sage constituted the battery
for Rock Island Moline and Mars and
Terrienfor Terre Haute. The fielding
of both clubs was exceptionally fiae, not
withstanding that many chances were ac
cepted. Rock Island has just cause to feel proud
of the record made by the boys in the two
last games and good reason to believe
that they will gradually push their way
to a place arrong the leaders. The fol
lowicg is the summary of yesterday's

Harry ODay, tte new second
baseman, arrived from San Francieco this
morning, and left this afternoon to join
the club at Evansville. He is of average
ize, has the appearance of an athlete
and will no doubt prove a valuable ac
quisition to the club.
Rock Island fans would r.ttber see the
home team lose hy such scores as charac
terized yesterday's game than to see them
win with the score away up in the teens.
It looks like bill playing, don't you know.
