IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION ACTS.
Laat Nlg-lit's Meeting to Consider the Best
Course to Pursue Resolution Adopted,
Committee Appointed to Carry Oat Its
Provisions and Delegates Selected to the
Omaha Head Camp Meeting;.
The leading topic of discussion before
last Light's regular monthly meeting of
the Rock Island Cittzena' Improvement
association was the approaching meeting
of the head camp of the Modern Wood
men of Ami rica. to be held at Omaha
November 15, and the proper steps to be
taken by Rock Island to secure the loca
ion here of the head offices of the crder
in the event of their removal from Ful
ton. That they will be transferred to a
more accessible and convenient point is
altogether likely, and Rock Island's claims
to meet all requirements have long been
presented and are well known.
President Jackson presided at last
night's meeting, nd after the routine
proceedings of the association were dis
posed of, attention was called by the
chair to the Woodmen matter, and re
marks were made by Messrs Maucker,
Soro rners and other Woodmen in explana
tion of the situation, and a general dis
cussion entered into id which Messrs
Car-e, Ferguson, Ohlweiler and others
participated. Rooms amply equipped
for the accommodation of the head of
ficers were discussed, such as those of the
second floor of Mr. Carse's new Second
avenue building and the fourth floor of
the Bengston block were suggested, but
in both these a vault, such as is required
20 by 20 is wanting. It was also
thoucht best to secure, if possible, the
option on a 6ite advantageously situated
for the accommodation of a Woodmen
building thould the society dec de
to build in the future
or at once. Peoria and
Springfield having decided to present
sucl'jfnducements to the head camp meet
ing. It was deemed desirable to secure
from Sir. Carse and others the terms
urder which they would equip a suite of
rooms with floor area of 40 by 65 and
and vault space of 20 by 20, and looking
to that end the following resolution pre
sented by Walter Johnson was adopted.
Resolved, That a committee of three
be appointed to confer vhh Henry Car9e
and others as to suitable quarters and a
suitab'e lot for the offices cf the bead of
the Modern Woodmen of America, and to
raise a fund to defray the rental of the
premises for two years, and take such
other action as they r'eem advisable.
The chair named as the committee to
act under this resolution, Messrs. W.
8. Ferguson, W. C. Maucker and C. J.
W. Schreiner, and it being thought ad
visable to send a committee to Omaha,
composed for the most part of Modern
Woodmen. President William Jackson,
Alderman E. H. Guyer, Dr. O. G. Craig,
T. II. Thomas and John Ohlweiler were
chosen to so act.
The mattar of securing a manufactory
of steam heating apparatus was present
ed in a report indicating encouraging
conditions by Mr. Ferguson of the com
mittee on manufacturers and Messrs. W.
B. Ferguson, 8. W. Searle and L. Simon
were eppointed a committee with refer
ence to it.
The monthly bills were allowed and
the association adjourned.

The musicsle given by Mrs. H. C.
Marshall and several of her pupils at her

was attended by a large number of
music, loving people of the three cities
and was thoroughly en jsyed by ell. A
number of pupils quite young assisted, as
did MiasLillie Smith, of Davenport, and
the affair was a very pleisant one in
every respect. The selections, whi 't
were all artistically rendered, were .'-..r.

That's what it is. It is a akein of the
most laughable situations and funny
seen s and comical episodes, all tangled
inextiicably into a mtze of Inn and
humor and ludicrous effect that makes
the listener forget hia troubles and shake
till he is well nigh sore. The piece has
been here before. Mr. Rice is a come
dian of ability, and be has an able com
pany with bim upon whose efforts he
safely depends for slrorg support and
the working out of the snarl of funny
things that go to make up the play. The

Re-opening of the Club's Rooms
A EEMEMBEANCE TO ME. SCHNELL.
The Members 'Meet and Make Arrange
ments for the Beginning of the Social
Season A Happy Event at the Conclusion
of the Business Meeting Something of
the History of the Club's Organization and
Its Aims and Objects.
Last evening at its rooms in the Bu
ford block en Seventeenth street, occurred
the annual re-opening of the Schnell So
cial and Literary club to members only.
During the heated term each year acthe
interest in the club is laid aside until cool
weather, when the social season is again
at hand. During the last few weeks the
handsomely appointed rooms have under
gone a thorough renovating, and now
present again a bright and cheery ap
pearance. It is the custom of the club,
which was organized for purely social
and literary purposes, to give a series of
entertainments to its friends each year
which are usually begun in November.
A large attendance of tbe club mem
bers were present last night and the oc
casion was made especially agreeable by
a little surprise that had been planned
for Matthew Schnell wE o had fathered
the club from its inception ani in whose
honor tbe organization was named. T.
J. Murray eecretary of the club on be
half of the members preFented Mr.
Schnell with a hacdome gold headed
cace, indicative of tbe hih esteem in
which he is held and tbe latter responded
warmly expressing his appreciation. It
was a very tippropiiate conclusion of re
opening of the rooms which will no doubt
be thrown open to tbe club's friends in a
social entertainment before long.
Tbe Schnell club was organized about
ttree years ago with but a small mem
bership, its aim being to provide a place
of - amusement for its members
and to look after their social
and literary advancement. The mem
bership roll gradually grew until it now
contains over 100 names, with as fine
a suite of rooms adapted to tbe uses for
winch they were designed as is possessed
by any socitl organization in this sec
tion. Ia addition to two large reception
rooncs, tbe club has a billiard and pool
room for those whose tastes are so in
clined and a well stocked library of some
500 volumes of standard works and
books of reference The latter is taken
advantage of more than any feature of
the club and is constantly being added to
by contributions from members. The
plan of giving literary and social en
tertainments before slluded to tends to
keep up the interest, and during the past
summer, excursions have been given that
have realiz-d to the club quite hand
somely. It is on a sound financial basis
&ud bills fair to remain a permanent in
stitution, providing for its members as it
does, just the requirements for which it
L-iu Lyons was up before Magistrate
Wivill today on the same old charge of
drankene s. He was arrested io tie
same old way, sang tbe same old song to
his honor and was fiaed the same old
fine of 5 snd costs.
Gee rye Kane was picked up by the po
lice last night in that peculiar state of in
toxication when it is said that he can't
see the town for the fences. He was
taken before Magistrate Wivill today,
who entered up a fine of $3 and costs,
on payment of which be was released.
John McGraw, of Moline, got stranded
here yesterday with quite a ca-go of se
lected drinks on board and was towed
into port by the police. Last evening
Magistrate Wivill had a date with John
at his office and the result was that $5
more waa paid into lh general fund.
John Shelly was before Justice Hawea
yesterday on a charge of assault acd
battery, preferred by Mrs. Jennie Chand
ler. The plaintiff it seems was an un
welcome visitor at defendant's hcuse and
he concluded to break off bcr visits
which he did in too forcible a manner.
The justice assessed him f S and co6ts for
Saturday. October 8th, we will reduce
prices on pitchers of all kinds, and on
sugar and cream seta.
One line of glaes cream pitchers will be
put at 3 cents eecb; but tte average on
pitchers of all kinds will be one-fourth
off. This will apply to every kind of
pitcher; p'ain white, brown, decorated;
iron, stone, Rockingham, china; every
thing witn a spout and handle except
toilet ware, will go.
On sugare and creams, a reduction of
one fifth will be made. In this, also,
nothing will be excepted; and one style,
Japanesi, prettily decorated, will be put
at 30 cea's tbe set.
