The mass me eting at Harper's theatre
last night to f change views on the sub
ject of base ball on Sunday was about as
largely attende 1 as the one held a couple
ofjweeks ago a gainst Sabbath desecration,
except that mt n predominated more large
ly last night. The meeting was made up
largely of tradesmen, mechanics
and laboring men of the city,
a large number of business
and professiot al men also being present.
It was calle to order shortly after 8
o'clock by E Iward Butler, who stated
the object of the meeting and made a
few brief rerx arks on the subject. Nom
inations for a permanent chairman being
in order Edward Bauersfield's name was
proposed ac.l he was chosen as such.
Albert Join son was then selected to
act as secrets ry. Chairman BauersSeld
first nituit.' a lew remarks in regard to the
necessity of calling the meeting in order
to give the n en who toiled six days in the
week a chin ;e to show that they dia not
approve of any action that tended to deny
them the rig it to enjoy a little innocent
amusement I uch as witnessing a game of
base ball on Sunday.
James IV. Cavanaugh was next
introduced and made a plain mat-ter-iof-fact
statement of the po
sition taker by the laboring people of
the commui ity in regard to witnessing a
came of bi.U on Sunday. The speaker
was inclined to believe that the Indies and
gentlemen who had met there on a previ
ous evening to protest against Sunday
base hall were sincere, but that was not
f.ny reason why men who labored six
days in the week and who could not at
tend a ga ne of ball on any other day
should be denied that privilege which is
enjoyed bj others who ate in a position
to attend them during the wi ek. Mr
Cavanaugl then cited other cities all
ovi r tae c nctrv where ball games were
played n Sutd-iv that had
suffered jir ill eft ects inconsequence. In
reply to tliis argument brought up by
those opposed to it that ball players were
compelied to work on Sundny.he said that
it was no worse than in many other pur
suits of lile and even in business, where
men woiked on tbe Sabbath and for in
stances o:' which it was not necessary to
go ousidi the city. He contended that ball
carr.es a- conducted here, where the
man8C( irent has taken every precaution
posaible to make them elderly and pre
serve tre peace and quiet of theneighbor
hoed were as gocd a phec for a man to
take his 'amilyand enjoy an afternoon in
innocent amusement as the Watch Tower
or other jlaces in regard to which not
a murmur had gone forth from those op
posed to any form of Sabbath descretion
He did nit care to criticise any man's
judgment of how he should sperd the
Sabbath, but when a body met to dictate
to other! how they should spend it, then
it was pi rtincnt to make these compari
sons, "'he speaker said he was heart
ily in favor of the laboring man hav
ing a place where he could spend
a Sunda 7 afternoon at no wotse amuse
ment thin at witnessing a game of ball,
and e xp -essed the hope that the honorable
mayor t.nd city council would take no
action i i the matter so long as they were
conducted in an orderly manner.
A conmittee on resolutions composed
of Louis Ohlweiler, William Baker. F. J.
Kellers' rass, John P. Sexton and Thomas
Byrnes, that had been appointed just
after ttc opening of the meeting, then re
ported and the following resolutions
were read by the secretary:
Whe eas, A number of citizens of the
city o Rock Island have met hereto
fore fo- the purpose of taking action with
reference to the Sunday ball games in this
Whereas, That same assemblage at
their neeting held, passeet resolutions
calling upon the city authorities to take
action to stop the game. Be it
Resi lived, By this assembly of persons
who C iU not attend ball games other than
on Sunday, that it is its desire and wish
that the municipal authorities of this city
take :io official action tending toward
preventing ball games on Sunday, so long
as the audience attending the same con
duct themselves in a gentlemanly and
peace' ul manner, and do not disturb the
quiet and peace of tbe immediate neigh
borly )d. Be it further
Resolved, That a copy of these resol
utions be presented to his honor. Mayor
McCcnochie and the city council of the
city of Rock Island.
AUorney William McEniry being next
introduced, began by saying that he be
longed to the more fortunate class, who
could attend games of ball during the
week, and therefore would not be affect
ed b; the games being prohibited on the
Sabbitb, but nevertheless he did not ob
ject o otherB who might not enjoy that
same privilege, the pleasure of witnessing
a game on Sunday. He had the highest
and :onsideration for the gentlemen and
ladies who had met there lor
the lurpose of suppressing what to them
was a violation of the Sabbath dav, but
be a .corded to all an equal privilege to
peed their Sundays as they saw fit, so
long as .they did not interfere wi'h or
trail iple upon the rights of others. The
idea of incouraging a proper observance
of the Sabbath day was no doubt rifiht
and proper, but for a body of people
who, themselves were able to attend
gmes through the week to say to other
1 ss fortunately situated, that they should
not be allowed to attend, and that they
must conform to others views of the Sab
bath, was taking away to a certain extent
the rights and liberties guaranteed to
every man by the constitution of the
United States and the state of Illinois.
He spoke both from a religious and legal
standpoint and contended that if the
playing of ball on Sunday had disturbed
anyone in that immediate vicinity it was
their privilege to file a complaint against
those offending, and also that if the Sun
day games were as gross a violation as
some would have the people believe that
it would not be necessary to call the
mayor's, city council's or chief of police's
attention to it by a public mass meeting.
The speaker insisted that there was a
question as to whether people in that im
mediate neighborhood had been disturb
ed and that street csrs and other noises
of ten disturbed people, but they were found
also to be quite convenient at times. He
doubted if it was any worse to play ball
than to run a ferry boat on Sunday, but
of course the latter had a little the best of
it from a legal standpoint. He closed his
remarks by saying that every city should
be proud of its ball club, as doubtless
most of them are, and that everything
should be done to encourage it and there
by show Rock Island to be among the
most prosperous of cities, and urged those
present to pass the resolutions just read
as they embodied just what the meeting's
sentiment should be. A motion was
then made that they be adopted as read
which was carried unanimously, after
which the meeting sojourned.
A movement is on foot to bring about a
compromise between those in favor of , and
against Sucdy base ball, by endeavoring
to have shops, business bouses, factories,
etc , closed down Saturday noon in order
to allow employes a chance to attend in
the afternoon, which no doubt would moot
with general public endorsement if it
could be brought about.

A writer in the engineering Magazine
says the political and commercial value
of the Mississippi waterway cannot be
fully estimated without considering also
the Panama and Nicaragua canals.
When the North and Soutn Americans
are severed by waterways, the Pacific
coast will be able to send its wine and
grain and all its other rich produce at
competitive rates to Europe. Captain
William L- Merry, president of the San
Frtncisco chamber of commerce, esti
mates that in the movement of one
year's wteat crop five to seven million
dollars could be saved by freight insur
ance, interest and charges for sacking.
Also that fruit could be delivered In
Europe by refrigerator steamers in
25 days. If in addition to this
the transportation can be carried up the
Mississipni to St. Loui9 or Chicago, the
value of the waterway becomes enor
mously increased. The Atlantic seaboard,
moreover, is not at present under the
control of the United States. Great Brit
ain holds Halifax on the north and the
West Indies on the south. She is now
making St. Lucia into an impregnable
fortress and guarding thus the entrance
to the Gulf of Mexico. The Pacific coast
is America's own, for it is not likely that
America's own , for it is not likely that
Vancouver will ever be developed into a
stronghold capable of disturbing the fu
ture supremacy of American naval sta
tions. To possess a means of transport
ing war vessels from San Francisco to
New York, through American waters
without entering the Atlantic, would
greatly increase the recuperative force of

The Woodmen exercises at the Tower
on Saturday afternoon, in addition to
what The Argus that cveniug contained,
was a programme which was opened with
an overture by Bleuer's band, after J. H.
Kerr called the asiemb'.age to order and
introduced William Jackson who made
an interesting address, in which he re
ferred briefly to the historic gr; und on
which the picnic was being held, and
took occasion to pay some high compli
ments to the Modern Woodmen of Amer
ica and bid them a hearty welcome to our
city. Mr. Jaekson's remarks were fol
lowed by a song by a double quartette,
composed of Messrs. Freeman, Collins,
Bishop, Dodge, Searle, Dougherty, Boll
mac and Housel.
Director Haydecker was next in'ro
duced and expressed his gratification at
being able to be present with the r,eih
bors of this city on their beaut.ful picni !
ground, and mentioned Beveral other
large similar demonstrations which he h d
attended in different cities. His remarks
were alike elevating and interestinc and
closed with some good advice to all
Woodmen to keep the coffers well filled
to be able at all times to promptly piy
all assessments. After some more vocal
music by the quartette, Dr. Frank Swal
low was introduced and entertained the
audience with some bright pointed re
muks. Before closing he pVui
Head Clerk Hawes a glowing tribute
for his ability and efficiency, and to which
he said was largely due the fact that
tbey had the best organized head of any
order in existence. At the conclusion of
Dr. Swallow's remarks, the young people
