An Interesting, Practical Talk. Intelli
gently Illuminated Before the. Citizens'
Improvement Association Last Evening
Rocksland tha Coming Center of Com
merce and Population of the N'ei.
The regular meeting of the Citizens'
Improvement association wis held at it s
rooms in the Mitchell & Lvncie rui Minir
last evening. President Wi!li(m Jack
son presided, and after calling the meet
ing to order be introduced O. M. Bab-
cock, of Philadelphia, mho in a general
way explained the proposition he has
made to the Tri-City Columbian commit
tee for the purpose of advertis'ng the
locality at the coming World's Fair, Mr.
Babcock begun his remarks by explain
ing the manrer in wh'ch he became in
terested in the work he has io. band.
He spoke of the interest people take is
the past and was euprised that so fev
cared to look into the future.
North America I'Dder One Flair.
The speaker wis of the opinion th t
the time is coming when the whole of
Niir'h Arm-rica wou'd be under one fli:;,
and if this was so it wou'd be interestirg
to try and figure where the center of
p opulation would be in the future ard
just what section would be most favor d
in this respect. The speaker contended
that with the fl w of wa'er toward a
comiron center in the Great Bas n
or Missies ppi Vlky so ft )s the sy mp i
ties of the i.eople that inbaMt this sec
tion, and from this he drew the con
clusion that their interests and sympathies
b irg identical.they were naturally tlrawn
toye'.her by n ni.uaiiin baud that wou d
withstand all outside iifliecces ttnd
turii asint any rep t tion of secession
as attempted a few years ago in Die
sou'h He characterized the preatlake
chain and the Mississippi river and its
branches the two great hiih ways of con-
merce, and as each must have a city to
control its maia business he d'-'mon-
stmteii by a practical illustration that St
Liuis would occupy that position on the
rivers and tbt Chicasro was destined to
be the mistress of the lakes.
In this connection Mr. Babcock c-
presfed the belief that the day wot, Id
come and is not far distant when C i
csiro will h. ve a population of 10 0(in,
(MMJ and will embrace a territory esteid
as far out from the present limits as
Elgin, Aurora and Joli'H. By maps aid
charts Mr. Babcock tt:en demonstrated
that Calcutta, India, and Ruck Islai d.
LI., are directly opposite on the earth.
He then explained the position of A'btns
and Rume, the ancient seit of learnitijj.
KeoSraphically the 4Uth parallel psssins;
between the to,atjd traced the course of
civilization, population and learning on
its westward way, and showed this liue
of the march of empire to cross through
Chicago aud Rock Itland beini sligb.ly
deflected to the north and terminating at
Puget Sound, which the speaker con
tended would be surrounded by the sane
conditions as London and Paris wh ch
are situated similarly, geographically
Future Center of Topulatlon.
By a scientific demonstration based i p-
on the past conditions of the center of
population, the speaker gave his predic
tion of what locality would in the future
form the center of population of the ita
lic. Rick Is'and and vicinity oeing that
favored section. Mr. Babcock then took
occasion to explain that his theory was
not gotten up to tickle the fancies of peo
ple of Rock Island, but was based upon
scientific and philosophical principles
that are recognized by some of the dee p
thinking men of the country. He tten
spoke briefly of his forthcoming book and
asked those present if tbey were satisfied
that his theories were sound to give th ira
A Vote of Thank..
In conclusion Mr. Babcock gave a few
closing remarks on the subject, after
which Mayor McConochie moved a vite
of thanks, and an amendment by S 'V.
Searle provided also for resolution com
mendatory of the work pas-el, after
which the meeting adjourned.
Tne remark of Mr. Babcnck, while
necessarily shortened by the lank of
time, were thoroughly appreciated by
thase present and demonstrated that he
has reasoned put something that is ell
worthy the consideration of all who
would be enlightened on the future de
velopment of the country and gratifying
in a high degree to the people of this im
mediate locality, as setting forth w lat
the future miy disclose to th;m, 4f tt.ey
but give proper thought and energy to
the building up of the structure for
which nature had made the design und
laid the fourdatioa.

night was well attended. During the
early evening the Plow shop band gave a
concert which was listened te by about 50
of the Workmen and their families. La

served at 11 o'clock, the whole affair be
ing moat agreeable in every respect.
Rev. W. S. Marquis' sermon delivered
at the Broadway Presbyterian church
yesterday afternoon on the occasion ofthe
funeral of the late George B.BiOwner was
a fitting eulogy on the deceased. The
preacher drew in language forceful and
eloquent the lessons to be learned from
the life of Mr. Browner, his devotion to
his home, aud deprivations suffered that
loved ones might have the necessaries of
life: his ever bright and cheerful disposi
tion reflecting the warmth of heart and
generosity of nature, the upright, honest
conduct that characterized his dealings
with his fellows. The young men of
Rock Idand have lost in Mr. Browner
od of their number whose example in
many ways may well be emula'.ed.
The fljral offerings and designs were;
lovely. In addition to the wealth of
tributes from personal friends there were
"The Gates Ajar," from the Stevenson
club, an exquisite shield from M. W. A.
Camp 29 and a beautiful floral pillow
from the family with the inscription, "Our
George " In all there were 24 pieces.

"Every time I see Murphy I think bet
ter of the Irish," a young English lady
said to her escort in Detroit last Monday
night while some of thelaughter caused by
the Kerry Grow still remained to bright
en her face. And she was not the
only one acquainted with the Irish char
acter who might have uttered a like
sentiment The Irish have been the most
maligned of all races. To be sure, most
of the prejudice against them in this
country, at least, has disappeared, but
their still remains some. The prejudice
has been heightened by the presentation
on the stage of the most ridiculous and
brutal pictures of Irish lift. Its almist
total obliteration has been effected in no
small measure, through the same nv dium
that was used in strengthening it the
stage. It needed only that Irish men and
women should be represented efore
the public faithfully that they should
be appreciated, and the need was met by
such men as Joseph Murphy, aud by
none more than him. He deserves from
his countrymen for his work everlasting
praiso. and the Irish can hardly perform
a more religious act than praying that his
veice may long be preserved to him Mr.
