The Colombian celebration in which
the Twin cities are to join hands this year
on Jul; Fc urth, is to be an event in our
local histo y. The committees in charge
of the celebration are all hustlinq.and tbe
outlook is that the demonstration will
prove fullj up to the plan and expecta
don of the original Twin City Columbian
committee which was charged by the two
business associations with the mission of
devising tl e celebration and providing for
carrying it out.
Chairmtn M. Y. Cady of the com
mittee or. floats, etc., is putting in his
time to g od advantage, and the parade
in both cities, terminating at the Colum
bian yroi ads, will be a feature unsur
passed ir extent and grandeur. There
is little d ubt loo, that Chairman Davis
of the com mittee on grounds will have them
in shape f r the accomodation of the mul
titudes ttat the demonstration will draw
to the T in-Cities. Messrs. John Ohl
weiler, J M. Beardsley, Eli Mosenfeld
er. Otto Uubcr and Howard Wells are
hustling 'ith the work assigned to them,
and then need be no fear that plenty
of funds will be available cr of any es
sential dttail Deing neglected.
The fir: t rehearsal of the Columbian
chorus of adults was held last night at the
F.rst M. i, church in Moline. A hun
dred and twentv-five names were enrolled.
Moline is coming with her 300. Re
hearsals 'vill begin in Hock Island next
week. 1 he school chorus of 1,000 is as
sured. The adult chorus of COO has
made a b.g start.
Tonigl.t the committee on advertis
ing meets, pursuant to Chairman Keat-
or's call, atd no doubt suitable arrange
merits vf.11 be made to give the event
the proper send off in this respect.

Then was a street fight last nicht be
tween some young boys in the neighbor
hood o! Twcnty-secocd street that may
yet prove a yery serious matter. Sam
Segel a 19-year-old Russian Jew is lying
at the Lome of Max Taxman on Fourth
avenue in a critical condition as a
result of the trouble. For some time
tbe boys in that neighborhood have been
making fun of the Russian Jewish resi
dents taere and last night as young Segel
who came here lately from Chicago, was
going i.long home he met a crowd of
boys wao began to guy him as usual. Se
gel stepped and a fight with rocks
ensued Segal finally ran after one the
lads atd captured him in the alley south
of Th rd avenue and between Twenty
first anl Twenty-second streets and pro
ceeded to give him a thrashing, when he
was set upon by other larger boys and also
a woman, it is said. When others in
terfere 1 it was found that Segal had sus
tained serious injuries, and Dr. Sala was
sumnu ned, and the boy was in the mean
time t iken to Nicholson's saloon, where
Drs. Sala. and Holderead, who was after
ward ailed, stitched up tbe wounds on
the y'ung man's head. A bad scalp
wound was found on the left side and
another penetrating the skull on the
right side. Several of the boys were
taken to the Armory and questioned
concerning the affair and no arrests have
yet biien made, though there probably
will be as soon as Segal is able to ap

The city of GUesburg is making stren
uous efforts to secure the J. 8. E. road,
for which Rock Island has been laboring
for some time, but for the accomplish
ment of securing which efforts seem to
have been relinquished on the very eve
of success. In Galesburg a promise of
the line entering the city has been se
cured on condition that the right of way
and depot grounds be provided, and a
meeting of citizens was once held and
active measures taken to secure the road.
The Register says of the contract under
which the company agrees to enter
1. I provides first for the construc
tion of the Chicago, Peoria & St. Louis
railway from a point on the Illinois riy-
er opposite Havana to the city of Gales
burg, within one year from the date of
the execution of the agreement, the cit
izens or their guarantors, agreeing to
furnish the company free of cost a right
of way not to exceed 100 feet in width
through the city, and station grounds.
2. That the citizens shall make con
tracts with owners for this right of way
in the name of the company, and what
ever moneys are to be paid f jr the right
of way the company will advance them,
but that these moneys are to be repaid
the company in 30 days from the dale
of the completion of the road to Gales
burg. 3. The citizens agree to furnish the
right of way as speed. ly as possible.
If they can not procure it by contract,
they shall have the right to procure it
by condemnation, in the name of said
company, the sums decreed to be due to
be paid by the said citizens.
4 The company shall construct the
road without unnecessary delay. bu the
time is to be extended in case the com
pany is delayed by legal proceedings over
which it has no control.
5. It is agreed that the citizens do
not have to secure or pay for any right
of way oyer anv other railroad lands
or over any other railroad tracks.
6. The contracts made in the name of
the company with parlies owning the
lands over which the railroad is to be
built, are to be turned over to the com
pany, but any moneys paid on these con
tracts by the company are to be repaid
the company by the citizens.
The meeting, after going into a dis
cussion of the proposition, resolved to
appoint a managing committee to look
after the interests of the city in the
matter of the Chicago, Peoria & St.
Louis Railway, such committee to con
trol 6uch subscriotions as may be made
and properly to dispose of the collections
made, and to have authority to make such
purchases of property as it may be neces
sary to secure depot grounds and the
right of way to said company. That
a canvassing committee be appointed to
secure signatures and subscriptions. The
committees indicated will be appointed
at once and enter the field the following
In Rock Is'and the J. S E. road does
nut ask as much as it docs to get into
Galesburg. It simply desires the ma
j-irity of the frontage into the city.
Within a few feet of this requisite has
already been secured. There cer
tainly ought to be no hesitation or legi
timate effort lost to secure the remainder.

Cushman asking if they could not wait
on him for a day or two for a decided
answer as to whether he could accept the
terms offered. The home team are badly
in need of a pitcher and Blauvelt ought
to be signed if Cushman cant make up
