The regular annual meeting of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation was beld at the rooms of the asso
ciation last evening, President Jackson
Ptesident Jackson referred to the com
ing visit .of the Sir Knights of Everts
commander; to Denver on the occasion
of the triennial conclave, and the plan
heretofore announced in Thb Argus of
advertising the citj, and that Recorder
Willerton had expressed a desire that the
association frame three of the lithographic
views of the city for use in decorating
the interior of the three special Pullman
coaches to be at the disposal of the
Knights. The president was, upon
motion of Fred Hass, directed to have
the lithographs framed.
The association then proceeded with its
annual election of officers, Messrs. Wal
ter Johnson and M. E. Sweeney having
been appointed tellers. The officers were
all selected by ballot, the resaltjbeing pract
ically the re-election of the old officers as
President William Jack&on.

The matter of the deficiency of Rock
Island's portion of the Fourth of July
subscription matter having been brought
up, a motion prevailed that the balance
of $ 80 of the banquet funds be applied
on that amount, and Howard Wells hav
ing been by virtue of the resolution of
the Columbia committee appointed chair
man of the finance committee, to succeed
A. C Dart, Mr. Wells was auth
orized to collect the remainder of the
amount by subscriptions, and the new
chairman entered upon his duties on the
spot, and secured a number of pledges
enough to assume that be will experience
no difficulty in securing whatever is due
from Rock Island, and which through
neylect, has not been obtained before.
In relation to the Twin-City Colum
bUn prjcN Mr- Jackson reported the
plan of the committee to complete the in
corporatiou on the $100, 000 basis, stat
ing that about $21,000 additional toward
the $55 000 deficiency was already pro
vided for.v He made a plea for the un
dertakins. speaking of it not only as a
sound investment financially, but an en
terprise involving the pride of the Twin
Cities. The secretary read a communication
with reference to a plant to develop man
ufactures on the lines of the C. B. & Q ,
and the matter was referred to the com
mittee on manufactures.
A letter was read by Secretary Searle
from W. B. Ferguson, in relation to a
temporary bridge from South Rock Isl
and to Big Island, suggesting, however,
that instead a permanent, substantial
bridge be constructed near the mouth of
Rock river, the idea being much the same
as suggested and urged by The Argus
on numerous occasions heretofore. The
plan was discuesed, and referred
to a committee appointed by the
the chair, and composed of W.
B. Ferguson, W. C. Maucker and
M. E. Sweeney, to report at the next

Yesterday was the third day of the
races of the Davenport Mile Track club,
and it being ladies' day, a large number
of the fair sex graced the occasion by
The first race of the day was the 2:30
class for a purse of $750. Fleetwood took
first money, the best time being 8:20.
The second race was the 8-year-old
trot for purse of $500. Bridal Bells won

Today closes the meeting, the event
being the grand $2,500 special pacing
race between Guy and Manager.
The Democrat says this morning of the
lamed horse, Allerton:
C. W. Williams, the owner of the
king of the turf, who sprained himself in
the rsce with Lobasco Wednesday, was
on the grounds yesterday, but be was not
in any of the races. He had put in a
pretty busy nigh of it with Allerton, and
he bad the satisfaction of knowing that
his pride and pet was better. He was
visibly improving, and there was reason
to hope that he was not as badly hurt as
was feared, or as was indicated at first.
Mr. Williams hoped to have the great
horse in condition to meet Nancy Hanks,
he said. They are billed to trot at Inde
pendence in about a month. As Aller
ton's record is 2:09 and that of Nancy
flat 2:09. it will be seen that a great im
provement 1b expected to take place in
Allerton within that time.
Mr. Williams gives out one thing cold,
however, and that is that Allerton,
o matter how much be is speeded and
matched on the turf, is done with rail
roads. He will not do any more travel
ing. The risks incurred in transporting
a $100,000 horse about the country in
the best of cars and on the best of rail
roads are too great. He will be left here
a few days. Mr. William himself leaving
for Independence today probably if be
has not gone before this meets the read
er's eye, the horse to follow on as soon as
he is really fit to place in transit. Oace
arrived at Independence he is to stay
there. Anybody who wants to trot him
will find bim there, but he will not go
out for conqutsts any more.

At a few minutes after midnight,
Wednesday night, Mars was nearer the
the earth than be had been for a matter
of 15 years- ' Only once in that lapse of
years does he come within speaking dis
tance, as The Argus has said, and then
he is said to be in opposition to the
earth, but is at that time, as seen from
the earth, at a point in the sky exactly
opposite to the sun. Last night Mars
was about 85,000.000 miles away from
the earth, which is as near as he ever ap
proached this globe. Occasionally he
gets in aphelion, and is then 61.000,000
miles away. And every few months he
is across beyond the sun from us, and
may then be as much as 240.000.000
miles distant, when he shrinks to an in
significant speck in the heavens.
