The Tract Krnnlsii.
The Monmouth Review explains that
the n ason 'for changing the place of
holding the Militarv Tract Soldiers' and
Sailor' reunion, was the failuare of Rock
Island citizens to make good the guaran-
tee of a sufficient sum of money to defray
tbe excuses of the meeting, the estima
ted amount being $1,000. Accordingly
a meeting will be held at Galesburg, May
24, at which the officers of the association
will consider propt sitions that may be
onerea dv otner maces, and fix upon a
location. Macomb, it is understood, has
raised, .he required amount, and it is not
Improbable that Galesburg will a'.so enter
This will be news to Rock Island. Rock
Island baB not failed to raise the amount
necessary to secure the reunion, because
it has made no effort in that direction.
To be cure the Improvement association
took ac ion looking to a joint entertain
ment of jthe Military Tract association on
the part of Rock Island and Moline, but
the con mittee to whom the matter was
referred, failed to discharge its duty and
hence nothing was done. Rock Island,
however, made no failure tn nrnnerli
provide for the entertainment of the tract
reunion, it is simpiy a iittie piece or
neglect, and it is not too late yet to make
the effort. Let's make it.
