secretary and treasurer of the committee,
submitted his report showing receipts
from all sources of $2,914.15 and expen
ditures of the amount lees $49, with bills
yet outstanding that work a deficiency of
$237. This deficiency is due to Rock Isl
and's promised subscription of $1,000
beirg short $224. owing as the com
mittee felt, to neglect on the part of the
chairman of the finance committee, and a
motion was unanimously adopted direct
ing the secretary to notify Mr. Dart to
make good his public guarantee within a
week, or tender his resignation and make
a report. This was followed by a resolu
tion authorizing the secretary to appoint
Howard Wells chairman of the com
mittee in case Mr. Dart resigns.
Mr. Wella reported that $50 res

more was available from the banquet
surplus, so that the amount to be raised
was $114 only. Thiswillnodoubt.be

mortification to the Rock Island com

simply to neelect of the head of the coin,

The committee then went into a dis

a letter from 8. H. Velie. who urged
action looking to putting the matter in
permanent shape as speedily aB possible
and speaking enthusiastically of the pos

expressed being that some steps should be
taken to organize under the original idea
of $100,000 capital stock and thus save
the $45,000 in subscriptions already
pledged, and abandon the $60,000 idea
involving as it would, the necessity of
going over the entire field again. A
number of plans were suggested, the one
meeting with most favor being mat an
effort be made to induce B0 or 40 men,
the endorsers of the note under which
the land is secured, preferred, to take
the majority of the stock litcessary to
complete the organization, S3 subscrip
tions at $2,000 each being all that would
be necessary to cover this amount, and a
number present agreed to do this. Final

filled with friends of the contracting par

being two little flower girls in attendance.
Immediately after the ceremony the

THE TliOrOSED NEW LINE
What the Projectors May of the Kail

The officers and organizers of the Illi
nois & Iowa Railway anu Terminal com
pany are very prompt and very confident
in saying that Davenport is going to bave
a new railroad, the Democrat says, be
cause of their efforts, and that she will
not bave to wait very long to get it,
either. The preliminary survey has been
almost completed. Probably Engineer
George T. Baker will have his profiles
ready to submit before very long. When
these come before the stockholders and
the directors some action by them may
be expected. What it will oe cannot
very well be guessed now. These
people, however, are warm in their
assertions that tbe line is going
to come into existence between Daven
port and Clinton, and are astonished that
Da veD porters generally take so little in
terest and bave seemingly so little faith
in it. They aver that tbe road will be
built and that it will be an important ad
junct to that city's commercial advan
tages and especially to its facilities for
reaching out in several directions in
which it has been somewhat handicapped.
"It is probable," the Democrat remarks,
"that tbe cities on the other side of the
river will be benefitted to some extent
also, but tbey will be inclined to shine by
the virtue of the light they gather from
us rather than by any effulgence of their
The Mnrrrll Inn ltu.e.
The janitor attheMorrell Institute is
uot a coward by any means, but just the
same he bumped up against one of those
stubborn facts yesterday that made his
hair stand on end for a few moments.
He opened up the building in the morn
ing and on going into tbe reception rcom
he thought be noticed something on tbe
floor that looked like a snake. He real
ized that that was a queer place for
snakes and then a terrible feeling came
over him that made him feel creepy- He
walked toward the object on the floor,
and then stooped and pinched himself to
be Bure that he was in a normal condition.
Stooping down he touched the measley
thing, and sure enough it was a real
snake. This was too much and he re
treated to the open air where he after,
ward rocovered sufficiently to muster up
courage enough to go in and bring it out.
It waB probably thrown in at an open
window by some one as a joke, bnt it
was too realistic for fun.
The institute has now been open about
a month and the success that has been
met with is indeed gratifying. Patients
are coming in daily, everyone upon
whom a cure is being effected seeming to
bring others suffering from kindred com
plaints. One of the best features con
nected with tha Morrell treatment is that
it does not interfere with the patient's
employment, thereby making the cure by
far less expensive than others, while it is
absolutely certaij. Another feature of
this treatment for which it has been
recommended by physicians every where
is the utter absence of anything akin to
the soreness in tne arms tuat is left by
other remedies tor the liquor habit.
Voluntary testimonials are being received
daily from grateful graduates of the cure.
Anyone desiring can secure a neat pamph
let which gives tbe history of tbe cure
and a largi numoer of testimonials from
persons benefitted, by sending their ad
