To Advertise the Trl-Citle at the World's
A number of citizens of the three
cities assembled in the ordinary at
the Harper house last evening in re
sponse to an invitation from the di
rectors of the Tri-City Improvement
League. The directors themselves
lacked a quorum and as a part of the
objects of the meeting was to hear
the expressions of the views of citi
zens on the, matter. S. F.
Smith of Da ven wtrt. called the meet
ing to order and' explained for the
benefit of -those present just how far
the league had gone. He spoke of
the league having been organized un
der the state laws and that it was
now ready for work. Mr. Smith then
explained the action that had been
taken in regard to the topographical
map by the councils of the three
cities, but he was also of the opinion
that the best work could be done by
paid representatives who could be
sent there to do personal work with
persons who might be interested in
William Jackson being called upon
expressed himself as being heartily
in favor of any steps looking toward
t he advert ising of the locality. He.
however, did not think that a guar
antee fund could be raised on this
side of the river, owing to numerous
other projects on foot, but was of the
lotitiioii tloit somet hiti"- miirht be
done in the way of excursions.
The next speaker was Mayor lien
nett. of Moline. who said that as the
league had been organized and was
now ready for business, that it was
all that could be done at present.
He thought that the work that could
lie done by the league would present
itself with the opening of the fair
and that it was a little early to take
any definite action.
I. foil Allen.
Tri-City Ticket Agent Allen of the
Hock Island was present and spoke
on behalf of his company. In regard
to the matter of excursions Mr. Allen
said that as western roads had never
before ' handled anything like the
World's Fair he could not say just
what could be done. His company
waa anxious, however, to do anything
that would be a bem lit to the tri
cities, and when the time came he
would be pleased to do anything that
could be done in the way of excur
Aid. Korn. of Davenport, then
spoke at some length, giving as his
opinion that the guarantee fund of
$lo.oiM that was at lirst proposed
should be raised saying that unless it
was done he did not think his col
leagues in the council would feel like
appropriating the $l.O'.0 for the top
ographical map. A general discus
sion then followed which was partic
ipated in by Aid. tiuyer and Messrs.
Jackson, Bennett and others present
and after it had been discussed in all
its phases on motion of Mayor Ken
nett it was resolved that it be the
sense of the meeting that no action
be taken until after the opening of
the fair when the work that can be
done will present itself in more tan

When nature invested Robert
Mantell w ith his peculiar advantages
of figure, face and voice, she might
have had in view his adaptation to
such an impersonation as that of the
handsome chivalric soldier in the
melodrama of '-The Face in the
Moonlight."' The play, which is by
Charles Osborne, is of the romantic,
historic order, and has to do with the
events in France from the time when
Napoleon escaped from Elba to that
in which he met ruin at Waterloo.
The pivot of the plot turns on the ex-
i a s.m.ia. manuei resemblance between the
Heinz elected i e- vo(ln nit.or Victor Ambrose
and the murderer. Jacques Ferrand.
The newly weeded w ife of the former.
Lucille Munier. is possessed with a
feeling of horror for the husband she
once loved, as on account of the re
semblance the odium of the murder
committed by Ferrand falls on him.
The subsequent confession and sui
cide of the real murderer unravels
the difficulty and gives a felicitous
ending. Mr. Mantell impersonates
both characters and his wide range
of dramatic capacity is seen in the
rapid transitions between two parts
that stand at opposite poles of human

M Jk K.'a Daylight Clothing Store to be
Thrown Open Tomorrow.
The popular and reliable clothing
house of M. & K.will be thrown open
to the public again tomorrow after the
long suspension necessitated by the
remodeling o,f the store and restock
ing the same, in consequence of the
fire of two months ago. M. & K.
start again amid new surroundings
wfth new stock and new life. The hand
some and commodious.stores occupied
by the firm and so familiar to all,
have undergone thorough overhaul
ing and remodeling in the meantime.
In addition to the putting in of a
front on Second avenue of metropoli
tan design and the construction of a
beautiful front on Eighteenth street,
every advantage has been sought and
secured in the way of affording light,
and now M. & K. have the daylight
clothing house of the three, cities.
With the walls and ceilings covered
with wall paper of the brightest and
most cheering tints, the store furni
ture all entirely new and composed
of natural oak and glass, the appoint
ments all in conformity with the de
sire to produce a pleasant effect and
at once create an impression in the
minds of all who enter, the tirm finds
itself amid surroundings well calcu
lated to excite tin? envy of others en
gaged in similar pursuits.
F.verythiniy in New.
In conformity with these new sur
roundings the stores have been re
stocked throughout. There is not a
vestige of shelf worn or carried over
go. tls in the store. M. & K. have
gien their word that this is so, and
that ought to be sufficient to satisfy
anybody, but to give double assur
ance lo this fact the lirm has de
posited at the Rock Island National
bank a check for ."')( to be delivered
to any one finding one stitch of old
stock in their store. M. .V: K.
have always been character
ized bv strictly honorable
business methods. They hare
been truthful ia every representa
tion, and thev owe their success in
the past to their unwavering -adher
ence to these square dealing methods
on the one hand and liberal and ju
dicious advertising on the other.
The firm has reallv done Rock Island
an immense amount of good, more
perhaps t ban an v other single firm
it has brought business here and
treated it well after its coming. It
has merited public confide net- at
home, has won the goodwill of the
people, and the people should feel
proud of such a merchant ile estab
lishment as M. & K. have conducted
in the past, as they give promise of
conducting liercaf ter.and stiouiu w ish
them abundant success.
