"There is no net d Ulkiug about the

not seem to entertain the proper appreci

company to Idanager Montrose, of Ht.r

have given you as clean a show as

tinued, "and have lost $150 by doing so.

sufficent to encourage most theatre

man, Mr. W. F. Estmau t.f tbe Moliue

citie8 met at tn-t Kimball Saturday night
to transact further business pertaining to
tbe organizing of the Tri-City Press
club. There was a general discussion
of plans and ideas and a committee ap-
pointed c insisting of three DayeDport
writers tn draft constitution and by-laws
and to report o a meeting to b3 called
by the chairman. The committee was
named from Davenport scribes because
of tin cnnven:ence of gattiog together.
Toat committe e is composed of J. E.
Calkins, city editor of the Democrat, C.
Newton Wilson, city editor of tbe
Leader and Hnrry E. Downer.
Tbe night a3 intensly cold and the
work of getting to Davenport so uncer

Alfred Waterhonse deserves cordial
thanks for th3 vigorous way In which he
bns called attention to the inconvenience
and annoyance caused to the public by a
large class ol advertisers. Acainst adver

Nor is it pleasant to see in the streets of

when we are traveling to be so confused by
advertisement? that we can with difficulty
make out the r ame of the station at which
we may wish to alight. In these things
there ought to be order and measure, so
