Feeling IrevaUThe Second Annual
The 8ecood annual banquet and ball
of the Tri-City Travelers' association,
held in tbe new Harlz & Baiinsen bniid-
iag at the corner of Third avenue and
Nineteenth street last night, was a suc
cess in every way. The handsome new
structure was all ablaze win light, and
tie outside was elaborately festooned
with Chinese lanterns end rther decor-a'-ions,
that gave it a prettj appearance
indeed. Shortly after 8 o'clock the
guesta began to arrive, they leing met by
me reception committee in the main of
fice and ushered to the s?cond flaor
where the spacious main roDin was cur
tained off, and & corps of attendants in
charge of Richmond Terrell, looked after
the comfort of the guests.
Artistic Decoration s.
The three floors have all been exqui
sitely decorated with the nation's olorg
and other decorations suggentivo of the
Christmas tide. Oi the first fljor in the
ncin room was spread tae banquet
board, the tihle decorations being also
of an elaborate character. The cater
ing was in charge of Mrs.tlerkert. Just
outside the banquet hall Bieuer's or
chestra wes stationed and discoursed
sweet strains of music during the arri
val of the guesta. At 10 o'clock the
doors were thrown open acd the long
line o! guests fllod down al ag the ban
Welaoaaed by President Welch.
When all was in readiness J. W.Welch
arose, and in a brief speech welcomed the
guests to the hospitality of the Tri-City
Travelers' association. He traced the
evolution of the knight of tae grip from
the beginning years ago t hen he was
called bummer.mentioning Jiaahange in
his appellation to that of the drummer.aN
terward being called a commercial tomr
jtt, then a commercial man, and finally a
traveling man, as he is known today.
He characterized him at the great
missing link between the I roducer and
the consumer and as symbolic of true
hole-souled manhood. He followrd the
commercial drummer in his wanderings
throughout the entire coun;ry and men
tioned a few of the difficulties encoun
tertd by men of that calling, speaking of
them as just the reverse of the 14 adage
in being late to bed and early to ripe. In
conclusion he extended to tbs assemolsga
a hearty welcome and bade all feast and
Mayor HcOomoehie Swsks.
After tha guests had sufficiently satis
fied the cravings of the inner man by
partaking of the elaborate f pread. Presi
dent Welch arose, and after alluding to
the effects of a hearty dinnir, introduced
Mayor William McConnoch e, who spoke
at some length, referring to Chauncey M.
Depew, New York'a gifted son, who has
attained such an enviable reputation as
an after dinner speaker, and of the effect
of a good dinner on him, after which be
responded to the toast. "The City of
Rock Island." The speaker spoke of tbe
pride of our citizens in tbe institutions of
our city, mentioning its business and
banking houses, its foundries and ma
chine shops, of tbe great military store
house and arsenal of tbe same name as
that of our city, the great railroad that
carries the name of our municipality to
every country of the globe, of our viva
cious twin sister city of Meline, and last,
bet not least, are proud of our brilliant
corps of traveling salesmen that represent
tbe diversified business interests of tbe
Tri-Cities. He spoke of t ie inestimable
valueof the commercial man in the avenues
of trade and of his ability in judging
human nature. At the close of his re
marks be bade the traveler all a cordial
welcome and took occatioi to express
the hope that in the midjt of our joy
and plenty, the poor of tbe city would
BOt be forgotten.
Remarks by Joseph I . Hsst.
Upon being introduced by President
Welch, Mr. Haas, who wns selected as
a representative of the legal fraternity,
made extended remarks of a very
happy character, during the course of
which be made many god hU that
were thoroughly enjoyed by the guests,
particularly one referring to the pro
pensity of the drummer for rehearsing
stories that were told and enjoyed by
our grandsires. Later, ia speaking in
a more serious strain, Vi. Haas paid
a fitting tribute to the kaight of the
grip and closed with his best wishes to
all for the future.
Letter from Ir. Tit esdale.
Dr. Truesdale had constated to make
a few remarks, but being siddenly called
out of the ci'y he bad s nt a letter ex
pressing his regrets, etc., vhich was read
by President Welch. It contained a
brief summary of the rtqui jites of a suc
cessful traveling man, an 1 gave them a
place among the most important of call
ings. This finished that p irt of the pro
gramme and on invitation tbe guests ad
journed to the upper floor, where several
hours were spent in terr ischorean pas
times, after which the comp any dispersed,

WELL WORTH SEEING.
A HandHome Car That Is Open to Visitors at
the C., M. & St. P. Depot.
If ever a man was round who believes
in systematic advertising and keeping
everlastingly at it.he baa been discovered
io the person of Mon Leak, president of
tbe Leak Glove Manufacturing company,
of Gloversville. N. Y., and who also has
a branch house in Sin Francisco, Cal.,
and who now has an introducing car for
the inspection and enlightenment of the
general public at the CM. & St. P.
depot in this city. Mr. Leak, who is a
typical American hustler, began his novel
mode of advertising ia going over the
country in a handsome car, exhibiting the
products of his factory.
Plaeer County on Wheels.
He afterward interested the people of
Piacer county. Cilifornit, and now his
handsomely appointed car which is heat
ed by steam and electric lighted from its
own dynamo U going about under the
name of "Piacer Couuty on Wheels."
The car is most novel in construction,
every inch or room being utilized in dis
playing the products of that famous Cal
ifornia county, besides the wares of about
20 firms. The interior of the car
is artistically arranged, while the outside
is provided with cases displaying the
products of tbe difierent firms that are
advertised. Tbe whole is brilliantly
lighted with ineandesent lights at night,
making a sight well worth seeing.
Expesml Mods of Advertising.
Another car is attached to tbe main
one, which is also stored full of the
different products of soil and science,
and 28 people are connected with tbe
car, some of whom represent the different
firms that advertise and take orders for
their goods. It cos s an average of
1 4 000 per month to run the cars, besides
what is given away, which amounts to
thousands of dollars every year in the
way of advertising, etc., this mammoth
scheme having grown from a small begin
ning, when Mr. Leak started out with six
men and a wagon. All visitors are
cordially welcomed and entertained, Mrs
Leak attending to tbe duties of the office.
The car will te in the city until about

Claiming That the Koad is Losing 0,000
Per Month at Least on Acoonnt or the
Strike A New Time Card Going Into
Kffect on the Milwaukee Tomorrow
News of (General Interest to Railroad
From what can be seen of it east of tbe
Missouri river, one would naturally sup
pose that the strike of the O. R. T
was at an end, as far aa the Rock
is concerned.at least. The operators still
claim, however, that the strike is on and
are making strenuous efforts to make
good their claim. Different tactics have
been adopted during the past week and
now instead of sending missionaries
along the road to get man to quit work
and stay away from the keys the men
are engaged in diverting passenger and
freight business from the Rock Island to
other roads. The O R. T. leaders claim
to have a total of 600 men out west of
the Missouri and that each of these cm
divert at, least one Chicago passenger
each week from the Rock Island, which
at an average of $15 would be $9 000 a
week besides tbe freight business. Sime-
thing more than this will probably have
to be done to mase the road abaLd in its
New C, M. A St. P. Time Card.

through without any lay over. The
morning train will leave here at tbe same
