THE PILOTS' MEETING.
The Upper Mississippi Convention at La
Crosse First Day's Proceedings.
Of the first day's proceedings of the
Upper Mississippi River Pilots' conven
tion at La Crosse, the Daily Press of
that city says;
The mee'icg is being presided over by
the president, Captain VVinans, of Wau
kesha, and the other officers are in at
tendance as follows: Vice president.
Joseph Buisson. of Wabash; secretary
and treasurer. D. C Law, of Clinton;
directors, Thomas Davidson. A. M.

AH the sessions are to be conducted in
secret, though a recess will be bad at one,
during which Mayor Copelaod will be in
vited to make a few remarks, as was done
last year. On that occasion the mayor's
remarks weri of a most baDov nature:
and he ''brought the bouse down" by re

A reportorial visit to the convention
hall this afternoon found the place most
beautifully decorated. The central figure
is a large pilot wheel, completely cov
ered with smilax; studding it here and
thereare beautiful rose blossoms, while
the bub is a mass of white chrysanthe
mums intersperse 1 with yellow snl red
roses. It is a beautiful affair and com
mands the admiration of all. As the rye
glances toward the top. however, a feel
ing of sadness creeps over the beholder,
for three bunches of crepe fastened to as
many spokes set ye as reminders of the
visitations of death. The mementoes re
fer to the death of Captains Frank H.
Looney, of La Crosst; Antoine Rocquo,
oi waoasua, ana J. a Mitchell, oi
Clinton, the last named having died dur
ing the past summer. The wheel itself is
made of. walnut and was once a part of
the old Louisville.
This is the evening for the regular
monthly meeting of the Rock Island
Citizens' Improvement association. A
number of important matters are ex
pected to receive attention, including the
terminal pioject and the en'rance into
the city of the J. H. E. road, with refer
ence to which Fred Haas received this
morning a letter from President Hook,
the impression conveyed being that the
road would come to Rock Island if
proper track facilities were offered, and
the terminal scheme meets such require
ments most effectually. The import
ance of action by the Improvement asso
ciation is therefore apparent.
It has been stated that the Columbian
project would also receive attention to
night, but that is not probable as the
undertaking belongs to a committee ap
pointed by the joint associations of Rock
Island and Moline and neither association
would seem authorized to act sinelv.
Furthermore the committee is not asleep.
During the campaign it was impossible
to do anything with reference to the en
terprise, but within a week since work
has been done, E. H. Guyer of the
soliciting committee having only yester
day placed $2,000 more of stock. The
committee will meet soon to adopt
measures looking.to putting the exposition
through and will then probably be ready
io report to the two associations. Until
then nothirte can property be done.
