The Columbian Project to Again
A COMMITTEE MEETING C AXLED,
The tireat Twln-Clty Vndertaklug to
Ag-ala be Trkeo I p and a Final KfTort be
Made to Pat It en Its Fe-t Necessity of
Some Decided Action Without Delay.
We have heard very little of the Twin
City Columbian project of late. Conse
quently some people have saticfied them
selves with the thought that it has col
lapsed and had been adundoned. The
croaker has taken particular consolation
out cf this self assrming view of the
But the Twin City Columbian enterprise
has not been given up. Those who have
been in a public spirited vay identified
with it, have never for a moment lost
aiht of it. or lost courage over its pros
pects, or confidence in it.
It Can Not Kail.
The fact of the matter ii, the Colum
bian project is in shnps thai it cannot
fill. Too many men navt in a financial
way evinced their endorsement of it.
Hence it cannot fail. Something must
be done with it and that toon. Rcaliz
io this. Chairman Velie of ihe original
joint Columbian committee of Rock Isl
and ar.d Moline Las called a meeting at
the rooms of the Rock Inland Citizens'
Improvement association on Friday even
ing of this week, when it ia hoptd that
some definite action may bu taken lokiog
tj the: final deposition of the mttttr.
A Worthy F.aterprlse.
The Columbian enterprise is too worthy
an enterprise, too far reaching in the ad
vantages aod benefits to Rccrue to the
community to be allowed to go by ihe
board, merely because people who ought
above all others to help it are lacking ia
the proper spirit. Too m ich work has
been done, too many risks taken
by men of public pride and liberal dis
position to let so worthy an undertak
ing fail of its purpose. During the
summer and fall when ali minds were ab
sorbed with polities, it would have been
a needless policy o have sought ta at
tract public attention to anything but the
e'ection. S the Colombian project has
patiently awaited its time. That time
has arrived. Wtat will the cities of Rock
Island and Moline do wiih ii?
The Mnuhattan Club's Opening.
The opening of Gibson .: Burns' new
place, the MiDhiUtan, occurred on Satur
day evening and was l&rtl attended by
the lovers of athletic eporl of the three
cities. The upper flior, wl ich is adm'r
ably arranged and appointed for a gym
nasium, was inaugurated by several
evcuts cf an athletic nature. "Cuckoo"
Collins, ,the well known sprinter, was
master of ceremonies, and Con Dole.
who is in training there, was made ref
eree. The first thing on thij programme
was a wrestling match between Sam
Brown, of Rock Island, and Henry Plum
beck, of Davenport, catch aj catch can,
best two in three falls. Fljmbeck won
the first fall in 3 minutes and 20 seennds.
Brown won the next in 9 minutes and 50
seconds, and after a 10-miiute struggle
without a fall it was declared a draw by
the referee. The next thin;; announced
was a wrestling match between "Cuckoo'
Collins and T. Carter, of Diion, Ia., Col
lins winning two straight falls in 9 min
utes in 50 seconds and 21 miautes and 20
seconds, respectively. O'Dty Bros , f
Dayenport, then" sparred f ur friendly
rounds for points, after whl;h the event
of the evening was "Farmer' Burns' of
fer to throw four men in an hour or for
feit $25 , took place. The fit man to go
against the farmer was Sam Brown, who,
after five minutes had his shoulders
touched to the carpet, Mr. Redshaw, of
Durham, England, being th i next man.
It took Burns 5 minutes and 30 seconds
t) straighten out the second man, after
which he put Carter down in 5 minutes
aid Collins in 3 minatca. The closing
feature was an exhibition of bag punch
iig by Con Doyle. The entertainment
was interesting and thoroughly enjoyed
by ali present.

William Ellis, a brakeman on the west
end of the Rock Island, narrowly es
caped death at West Liberty on Satur
day afternoon. While switching there
be went between the cars to make a
coupling and in some way was caught be
tween the draw bars and was badly
squeezed. Luckily the cng:ne was
backing up slowly and he was only
squeezed. His injuries were quite pain
ful, however, and be was brought to the
city, where he boards. Dr. Flummcr at

Fratk Wray, of Drury townthip, who
in October, 1885, was convicted of rape

Arrangemeata to be Made for Sending a
Representative to the I. -I League Meet
Tonight at the rooms of the Citizens'
Improvement association occurs the meet
ing of the Rock Island-Moline Base Ball
association for the purpose of closing up
the affair of the old year, atd taking
steps toward the formulation of the new
league. Ia all rrobability arrangements
will be made for sending a representa
tive to the meeting at the Shirman houee
in Chicago tomorrow at which time
some dtfiaite plan will be elaborated for
getting a good circuit in shape for the
Probability or a Fight.
From all appearances there is likely to
be a fplr.tei contest between ex-Secretary
McCaull of the Illinois -Iowa league and
the present officers of tbe organization. It
seems that Mr. McCaull, the erstwhile eec
re'.ary, holds the Jacksonville club $500
forfeit guarantee check which he has so
far refused to return to that club. His
claim upon it is said to be on account of
the league being indebted to L?m Stock-
well for seivicts as umpire. Two meet
ings will be held in Cnicago tomorrow,
one called by W. S. McCall at the Grand
Pacific and the other by the league
proper at the Sherman, la ail proba
bility the latter wiil be generally attended
by the representatives of the different
cities, while "OaioniBiil," as he delights
to be known, will be left to his lonesome.
IOWA VS. ILLINOIS.
An importunt Ruling in a Boundary Line
Slut Between the two States.
The supreme court of the United States
on tbe 3rd ins., rendered a decision in
the cise of tbe state of Iowa against the
stale of Illinois to settle the boundary
line in the Mississippi river between the
two states. Nine bridges cross the river
between the states, and suit was brought
in order each might tx only those parts
of them within the respective bounda
riee; Iowa contending the boundary
runs through the middle of the main
body of the river, regardless of the steim
beat channel, and the measurements be
taken at tbe normal stage of water. Illi
nois claimed that the jurisdiction of
each s-tale txttcdtd to the middle of the

court takes the Illinois view of the mat

Mahara's orginal McCabe & Young's
minstrels pUy at Harper's theatre tomor
row night. The entertalsmeat abounds
in many novel and enj yib'e features.
The author of "Josephine," the drama
in which Rhea has gained unique distinc
tion and in which she appears
at Harper's theatre Friday evening,
very properly makes Talleyrand
one of the commanding figures in the
Napoleonic group. From this play we
gain an accurate idea of the character of
the smooth, subtle, deceitful, brainy and
conscienceless minister of France who
began .life as the Abbe Pericord, who
was subsequently excommunicated by
the pope, and whs finally returned to
the mother church with the humblest
Complaint as to Car Serrlce.
Rock Island. Jan. 8 Editor of the
Argos: Complaint comes, from the
workmen employed in Moline of the poor
service given them by tbe syndicate lines.
They bhould run at least one more car on
the early trip, or a trailer with a stove in
it. As it is, tbe men arc compelled to
stand oat on the rear platform, which is
anything but pleasant this cold weather.
Toe company has plenty of cars, and
there is no use of crowding 35 and 40
men in cars intended for half that many.
Now the company makes money carrying
tbe workingmen to and from Moline and
we should have better service.
In respect to the above, t whom it
was referred, Supt. Huntoon stated this
morning that the company had a trailer
especially equipped with stove, etc., for
the comfort and eccsmmodation of
workingmen on the early trains, but un
fortunately the mornings that it was the
coldest and the travel naturally the heav.
iest, it was impossible to pull a trailer
over the slippery rails, ana it was all tbe
company could do to run a motor car oc
casionally at such times.
William McOonnell, an old-time resi
dent of this county, died at his home in
Bjwlicg township at 1 o'clock yesterduy

highly respected by all who knew him.
He leaves three daughters, Mrs. Robert
Moffatt, Mrs. Martin Wright and Miss Lou
McConuell, the litter residing at borne. The
funeral occurs from the late home at 11
o'clock tomorrow mcrning to the M. E.
