TWIN CITY HOSPITAL.
Kock Island and Moline Ladies
Meet to Consider It.
AWtblelilta That Looks Like Con-
bnanmatioa Yestedday's tJon
fernee in Kork Island.
The Twin City hospital idea has been
revived and promises this time to reach a
successful consummation .
A largely attended and important
meeting of Rock Island and Moline la
dies was held yesterday afternoon at the
residence of Mrs. Peter Fries on Eigh
teenth street to consider the project and
while no decided action was taken the
outcome of the meeting will in all prob
ability be the establishment of the hospi
tal. The plan under consideration is to
secure a desirable tract of laud as near
the line between the two cities as possi
ble, and erect a building suitable for the
hospital and have it conducted under the
direction of sisters of mercy.
A meeting is to be held in Moline Sat
urday of the manufacturers and business
men of that city to consider the same
project, and pending the action of such
meeting the Indies adjourned.
The Moline KepuMican-Journal of
last eveuitig commenting on the hospital
A movement is on foot to give the two
cities a first-class hospital, and those at
the back of i: being our most substantial
cilizer.s, the institution can be confident
ly s-tid to be assured. It will be located
on the bluff back of the college, and will
be built and maintained by private sub
scription. The projectors are satisfied
that the city does not intend to do any
thing though a tax was voted for hos
pital purposes at the last municipal elec
tion. A meeting will be held soon to or
ganize a TwinsOity Hospital association.
The funds are in sight, and it is an ab
solute certainty that something besides
talk will be the outcome.
The hospital ia one of our crying needs
and the railroad companies, manufactur
ers tnd other employers are willing to
aid generously in the enterprise.
MUST NOT FAIL.
A Final Appeal r..r thi- Y. SI. A.
The board of directors of the Y. M.
C. A. have come face to face with an
encouraging yet serious situation. The
cinyiss for the building fund had been
going on q'lieilv, but steadily during the
summer, and the committee hive secured
in all pledges amounting to $17,260. The
balance Deeded, however, to complete
the J 13. (XX) must be secured by Thurs
day or the association will fail to secure
some of the large subscriptions already
Pledges of any amount payable on or
before January 1, are solicited, and it is
hoped that everyone interested will take
pride in helping this commendable enter
prise. Subscriptions may be left with G.
M. Loosley, president, or sent to the gen
eral secretary at the association building.
Don't wait to be called on, but send in
your name at once.

At the first of the season it was thought
that the Minneapolis mills would this
year break the record and saw 500,000,
000 feet of lumber, but if it is done it will
have to be done the last half of the
season, as thus far but a little in excess
of last year has been sawed. It is prob
able that the 500,000.000 feet mark will
not be reached. Logs are coming down
to the mills in good shape. Below
Brainerd they are making good progress,
and the upper drive is now at Olmstead
bar, the middle drive at Sauk Rapids,
and the lower drive near Minneapolis
Below the Bear river and Indian reser
vation logs the river is clear to Atkin. the
rest of the Prairie river drive haviDg
passed that point a week ago.
The prospect of one or more saw mills
being built in Minneapolis is very good.
The WeyerhauEer syndicate is figuring on
doing something of thU sort. In addi
tion to the Northern Pacific lumber and
the Wright & Davis timber on the bead
waters of the Mississippi, Mr. Weyer
hausftr and his associates are interested
ia the timber on the Mille Lac reserva
tion, now the subject of litigation.
Wfcile some of this timber will go into
St. Croix waters, much of it will natur
ally find its way down the Rum river.
Tnis means that the timber will be con
verted into lumber either at Anoko or
Minneapolis, presumably the latter point .
The Lumberboy brought down 16
strings of lumber.
The Inverness and West Rambo came
down with eight strings of logs, and the
C. J. Caffrey with 12.

HENNEPIN CANAL CONTRACTS.
Sew Bidder Awarded the Work mt
Chleasa The Trre Injunctions.
The lucky bidders on the canal work
opened in Capt. Marshall's office in Chi
cago Saturday are new contractors al
together from those heretofore engaged
in construction operations. Messrs. Mon
roe and Richardson, the bidders who
were disappointed by the enforcement of
the 8-hour law, as has been narrated,
were disappointed again. They had
hoped to make themselves even on their
outlay in preparing for the, work under
the contract that was rejected, in Case
they put in a successful bid the second
time, but they did not make the winning
proposition. The contract for the exca
vation and construction of the canal
trunk, three miles, and lock 96. the same
covered by their Tejecttd bid, went to D.
R- Lynch, of Monmouth. III. Tne con
tract for the guard lock at the head of
this work and perhaps four and half
miles from the Mississippi, was let to
David Sears, of Milan.

John JloCounell Srrloutly Injured on
Muline Avenue Thin Slorninff.
John McConnell, a young man who
drives a sprinkling wagon on Moline
avenue was badly injured by his team
running away this morning. While filli
ing his wagon on Twenty-seventh street
near Fifth avenue the horses took fright
at something, and before the young man
could get hold of the lines they dashed
around the corner on Moline avenne and
in making the turn they ran into the
curbing on the north side of the street.
The jar threw the unfortunate young
man from the high seat, and he fell to
the ground, the heavy wagon pass
ing over his extremities. Some
persons near by stopped the
team, and he was picked up and placed
upon eome quilts provided by kindly
disposed neighbors, and the patrol wagon
sent for. ,
The police responded shortly, and
young McConnell was placed upon a
stretcher and taken to his Lome on Ninth
avenue and Fourteenth street, where he
was attended by Dr C. B. Kinyon. The
latter found that his left thigh had been
crushed in two places by the heavy wag
on, in addition to which his nose was
broken, and his head badly bruited. He
was made as comfortable es possible, but
it will be a long lime before lie will be
able to be about again .
Worshiping God at Tlndall's Grove The
Camp Meeting Grounds, Aug. 29
There was a large attendance at the camp
meeting on the SabbatQ, and the B-rvices
were very interesting. The morning ser
mon was preached by the Rev. Dr. Cur
tis of Chicago, the new western agent of
the Book Concern, from the text. "What
think ve of Christ T'' The doctor said he
appeared humbly as an advocate of Jesus
Christ, and considering the congregation
as a jury would summon b- f re
them witnesses who should testify as to
the character of his client. This he pro
ceeded to do, taking the testimony of
bible worthies, of angels and d-jvils,
saints and martyrs, and pres nting it in a
convincing manner At the close he
pressed tbe question personally, "what
think ye Christ."
, Rev. Traveller, superintendent of
missions in Chicago spoke eloquently and
effectively in the afternoon. Rev. Han
ey of Geneseo preached in the evening.
Last Friday wss a good day on

COMING TO A CLOSE.
A Shut Ont Administered to tbe
Two More Games Besides Today, and the
Season Closes In Rock IslandFlay
ers Signing; Elsewhere.
There was a small crowd at Twin-City
park yesterday afternoon to see one of
the best games of ball that has been
seen this season. Both teams played
with a vim and snap that has not char
acterized the playing of the last series.
Collins and Nicol were the opposing
pitchers, and both put up excellent
games. The playing of both teams on
tbe whole was good, and the audience
was more than pleased. Patsy Lynch
played the finest game at short that has
been seen on tbe grounds this season, ac
cepting 14 chances without an error,
a number of which were brilliant
at that. George Nicol pitches his last
game for the Rockford team today and
tonight leaves for Birmingham, Ala.s
where he has signed. Shortstop Truby.
also of tbe Rockfords, has signed with
Menominee, Mich, and will report there
when the season here is finished.
The following is yesterday's summary:

Suits have been bt-gun by the Rock

seven persons in Moline who have re
ft s d to pay tbeir assessments on base
ball slock. It seems bard to think these
persons would cot pay the amounts they
voluntarily pledged, but such is the case
and a forced collection is necessary.
In view of the fact that Thursday will
witness the last professional game at
Twin-City park this season, it has been
suggested that it would be a good idea to
make it a particularly attractive occasion
by introducing a num'-er of special fea
tures, such a a turning exhibition by
the tri-city Turners, together with a
band of music. The bull association is
cot having a struggle with any problem
as to the disposal of the surplus, but
nevertheless, a venture, such as sug
gested, might prove advantageous from
a fluabcinl standpoint.
