The Twin-City Columbian committee
held an important meeting at the rooms
of the Rock Island Citizens' Improvement
association last evening. In the absence
of Chairman Velie, E. H. Guyer was

Committee of Twenty one: Gentle
men I have the honor to reDort that the
committee upon tha celebration of the
Fourth of July have met, organized and
are now actuslly at work. The pro
gramme mapped out for the day is about
Morning At 9 a. m , a parade in
each city of historical floats and uniform
ed men. These to move to your grounds.
Then at 10 a. m. they are to puss in re-
view bi fore the people on the erand
stand; first a float of one city acd then a
float i f another, so that there may be no
comparison. One or these floats is to
represent some historical boat in which
will be many school children. After the
procession has passed, these will stop and
sing, "Star Spangled Banner," accompan
ied by the band Then will take place
the flag raising, and your grounds will be
officially opened, after which the children
will sing. Itelly Around the Flag, or
seme other appropriate song. Stiould
there be any more time before 12 m. then
may occur a race between the different
hose companies. All this is in the hands
ot M. Y. Cady. to whom everyone should
give aneiping nana.
Aiiernoon ai u p. m. tne exercises
will commence, these to consist of ath
letic sports, such as a tug f war, slow
bicycle race, the prize to go to the one
who comes in last, a ball game between
uign sen oei cnuaren or tne two citiee, a
wheelbarrow race, bicycle race, sack race.
running race, exhibit by the Turners, etc
Midway between these will be a display
of dj fireworks. All this in charge of
Uapt. J . M. iieardsley to whom you will
all lend a helping hand.
Evening These exercises commence
at 7:40 and consis of singing by a grand
chorus, after which will occur the display
This display is in the hands of W. H
Moore, who also needs your kind word
It is proposed to issue tickets for the
giand stand Che admission to the ground
being free) printed in red, white and
blue colors, the red for morning, 25 cents,
the white for the afternoon being the
same price, and the blue for the evening.
50 cents. For every dollar subscribed by
the merchants of the two cities a set of
these tickets are to be given, and on the
back they are invited to print their busi
ness cards. We hope in this way to have
all the tickets sold before July 4, and
that many of them will be sent to their
out of town customers. This and the
grounds are all in the bands of S. S.
The privilege for the sale of everything
but intoxicating drinks are in the hands
of John Ohlweiler. From this we hope
that C70U or Ifl.OOU will be derived.
From the sale of the privileges of the
programme for the day we hope to re
ceive between 300 and f 500.
The music and singing is all in charge
of WillR. J .'hnson.
The advertising and railroads all in the
hands of B. C. Eeator.
There is no reason why this should not
be a perfect success, and many dollars of
profit be derived. But to make it such a
success, the grounds should be enclosed
by a fence, so that all improper charac
ters and drunken persons may be kept
This will also give security to those
who have purchased the right to sell re
freshments, etc.,' on the grounds, and it
will also enable the committee to have
barrels of ice water at different points of
the grounds for the use of the people who
can not afford to purchase the drinks to
be kept for sale, and room for country
people to eat their lunch in some privacy.
The grounds should be carefully eur
veyed, the race track mapped out and the
location of the grand stand adopted.
If you could have this track made and
the grand stand erected, it would be a
great drawing card to your subscription
list, for this celebration will demonstrate
that at least $5,000 net profit can be de
rived from the use of grounds each year
and this would pay a handsome dividend
upon your capital stock.
Davenport has no celebration this
year, and if timely notice were given
them of what you intend doing, you
could draw many from that city also, and
there is no reason why you cannot have
30,000 to 80,000 people there sometime
during the day. M.' W. Lyon,
Chairman of Jnly 4th Committee.
E. B. Eeator of the committee on ar
rangements stated that the committee
was inclined to favor dispensing with the
speaker, but had determined to leave that
matter with the Columbian committee to
determine. ' A short discussion followed,
and upon motion the action ot the com
mittee . in dispensing, with the speaker
was approved. -
The finance com mi. tee was called upon
for a report and it waa shown that while
the Moline members had been doing
same hustling, the Rock Island members
bad done nothing, ' and it was thereupon
determined to add twa members to the
I ck Island committee, and Messrs.
Howaii? Wells and E. G Frazer, who
made such a success in the banquet sub
scriptions, were delegated as such com
mittee. The committee on - grounds was au
thorised to make arrangement for the
removal of the present houses on the
grounds, and then the committee entered
into an extended discussion of methods
for pushing the Columbian exposition en
terprise. While Rock Island has raised
$85,000 of the original capital stock
and Moline but $10,000. and while
those of the Rock Island committee who
have done the most active can
va89ing were coo Aden t that the
$100,000 could be raised and that
Rock Island could raise $60,000 if neces
sary on a basis of $100,000 easier than to !
go over the entire ground again and se
cure $30,000 on a capital of $60,000, the
prevailing opinion nevertheless w as
that the time was so short between
this and the Fourth that some definite
organization should be perfected, and it
was thereupon decided to reorganize on a
basis of $60,000 capital with a view of in
creasing the amount later, and to name
the new organization the Moline & Rock
Island Exposition association. and Messrs.
Moore, Ferguson and Walker were
delegated to make application to the sec.
ratary of state at once.
William Jackson stated that cow that
the exposition had assumed definite
shape, he was willing to shoulder a little
responsibility to see the ground improve
ments through, whether the association
was completed by the Fourth or not. He
was willing to be one of 10, 20 or 80 to
endorse a note to raise $5,000 to put the
grounds and giand stand in order for the
Fourth. The idea was heartily concur
red in. and 12 of the gen
tlemen present rose in sig
nification of their willingness to
go on such a note, and upon motion
Messrs. William Jackson, S. S. Davis and
John Ohlweiler were appointed a com
mittee to provide means for getting the
grounds in shape and proceed forthwith
with the work, none of the money thus
raised to be used for the celebration
proper, but to be invested entirely in
permanent improvements. '
The committee then adjourned to meet
in Moline Friday evening.
This morning the committee on popu
lar subscriptions started out on its mission
and is meeting with gratifying success.
It should be understood that the funds
thus eecured are for Rock Island's por
tion of the $2,000 for the celebration
proper, and our business men will there
fore show their customary liberality in
furthering such an enterprise.
