The fact of the matter is that it would
be something bordering on disgrace '.o
let this Columbian matter fail. It would
be of the nature of a public misfortune,
to have it go out to the wrrlil tbt two
cities of the reputation of Rock IMaii

Confidence In the Enterprtae.
The Akous has cot for a moment since
the enterprise was proposed wavered ia its
confidence in it, and i'.s confid nee in 'he
people of the two cities to carry it out es
originally designed. It still believes fir n

have attended the late canvass in Ruck

There was another good a zud crowd at
the rooms of tbe Manhattan club last

Tbe programme was opemd by a spirited
bout between two bantams, Johtay Davis
and Johnny Z mmer, thi'b was followed
by Frank Brady ami Johnny McGee in

followed by the most interesting event
of the program ne. It was a 3-round
friendly contest between Joe Smith
nd Jim Perry, two cl.ver boX'?r
from the glass factory. Each of the
rounds was characterised by hot ex
changes, and the finish was loudly ap

was highly appreciated Tbe next was a
3 round give-and-take between two

Fire at MoUne.
The Moline Malleable Iron works
were totally destroyed by fire at 1 o'clock
this morning. The fire originated in tbe
annealing room, which was situated in
the center of the building. A west wind
was blowing at the time and the flames
made rapid headway. So rapid in fact
that the efforts of the volunteer depart
ment to prevent tbem were futile. It
was finally seen that the buildings could
n,ot be saved and the attention of tbe
firemen was turned to the adjoining
property, O-iiy tbe office and vaults
containing the patterns were saved.
The lops is estimated at $60,000 npon
which there is some 125,000 insurance.
The insurance companies most deeply
interested are: Tbe Commercial Union,
of Lendon ; tbe North British and Mer
cantile; Phoenix, of Brooklyn; Imperial,

The Reapportionment Schemes Will Nut
Go Through Without Remonstrance, and
Other Plans AreLlkely.
The Chicago papers of toJay report
that the democratic committeemen have
struck a snag in taking up the congres
sional apportionment plans formula'ed
by Messrs. Hiurichsen and Nelson, and
that the groposed proportionment is
nything but satisfactory. The Tribune
says, after referring to tbe situation:
In tbe first place the friends of Con
gressman Cable are howling because his
county (Rock Island) his been put ia a
district inst will cive 4.000 or 5.000 re
publican mcj jrity without any trouble
Two of his best friends, Elmore W.
Hurst and State Central C mmitteeman
Potter, of Rork Island, are here tonight.
They do not hesitate to say the thing is
an outrage. Mr. Hurst gays: "This is
a poor reward for Mr. Cable's services O
the democratic party!' It is not very en
couraging to a young mtn who h-ts dem
onstrated his ability to make a success
ful political nvht to be set over in t dis
trict that is 5.000 against him."
The News says:
Congressmen 8pnnger and Cable
are beginning 10 cut something 01
a figure in tne reapport nment,
as the proposed construction of iteir dis
tricts is not wholly sttii-fuctorj . The
carnation congressman had consistently
kept out of the fight between the south
ern members and tbe Altgeld faction, and
i-' one pUn he was reward d by beinq
placed in a d strxt with a very meager
majority. His friends do not like i', and
they are not slow to say so. Con

No Fall Moon This Month .
February almost scores the honor ot
havicg two full moons, but manages to
lose both of them. A distinction of this
sort was secured by January, which had
one full moon on its last d-iy. This lat
ter one February loses by a few hours
and falls short a little oyer a day of
catching the next one. Thus February
this year has no full moon. But tbe
parts of the mons which it secures sp
pears in some interesting situations. On
the 5tb of the month the waning moon
c-ime in conjunction with Saturn, both
coming in view in the east a little
after 10 o'clock at niht. When near
et each other mjon and planet
were only about 1 degrees aprt, a dis
tince of a little mere than twice tbe ap
parent diameter of the full moon. Tbe
moon will be ia conjunction with Venus
on the 14th and Mercury on the 16. h, but
one of the orbs can be seen until about
an hour before sunrise. On the 20th and
21st the most interesting conjunctions of
the whole month. Jupiter will figure in
the earlier one and its companion Mars,
in the latter one. When at their nearest
to each ether tbe moon and Jupiter will
be less than half a degree apart. But in
tbe case of Mars the approach will be still
closer, only about a tenth of a degree in
tervening between moon and planet at
one time. In some parts of the country
Mars will be occulted.
