This morning's joint "seifivn of .the
Illinois and Iowa State. .Dental srei
eties. which, according to the pro
gramme, was to have occurred here,
took place in Davenport, the change
having been made at the suggestion
of the executive council on account
of a feeling among the members of
the Iowa organization that Hock
Island was getting too much
of it. Accordingly the knights of
the strong arm repaired to the other
side of the river, where -the session
was convened. Tha, meeting was
presided over by President Hlair. of
the Illinois soeietv. tbe tirst th'm;
being tin' reading of a paper on
Things Old, New ami Useful iu the
Operating Koom" ly Dr. A. C Hew

bandied in a thorough manner by the
doctor, the balance of the time be

a general discussion.
The Meeting Tlii Afternoon.
It wns found vesterdav and last
evening that the council chamber
was not large enough for the delib
erations of joint meetings, and this
morning arrangements were made
whereby the balance of the sessions
here will be held in the new Castb
ball of the Knights of Pythias. This
afternoon the meeting was convened
there, an ununally large representa
tion being present.
At yesterday afternoon's joint ses.

The Lute Tliouiux Saulpauch.
Tle late Thomas ISaulpaugh, whose
death at Mankato, Minn., yesterday
was annotinced in last evening's Ak
cs. was for a great many years a
resident of Hock Island. For 24
vears he and the late E. P. Reynolds
were associated in railroad contract
work, and for 10 years he and John
Crubaugh were engaged in extensive
railroad construction in the north
west. He left Hock Island in 18X0,
ami since then his home has been in
Minnesota. His last visit to Hock
Island was to attend the funeral of
histoid friend. K. P. Reynolds. His
wife died last January, and he leaves
one son. Clarence II., to mourn his
loss. "Two brothers also survive
him, Gerge Saulpaugh in Tennes
see, and Louis II., a Rock Island
county farmer. He was 71 years of
He left a fortune of f 100,000.
Improvements In rntgrex The Coming
The improvements at Augustana
college are going steadily forward.
For some time the work upon tje
stone retaining wall has been pro
gressing, and the coping is just being
put into place. The rickety wooden
steps that served in front of the so-
ealled old college building are yield
is s .
ing to broad stone steps, and in front
of the main building a larger, and
even liner stone stairway has been
laid. This will be surmounted by
ornamental vases tilled with plants
and llowers. The' retaining wall will
extend 103 feet along Thirty-eighth
street on the east, while on Seventh
avenue it extends along the front of
all the buildings. The contract for
the wall and steps was let for $4,455.
1 lie surprise in improvements came
in the way of the dome of the new
building. Various plans have been
discussed at different times for fin
ishing out the structure, but the nec-
eessarv jso.ouii outlay .lias always
been an unanswerable . argument.
Without the slightest- warning not
very long ago, a scaffolding began to
rise on the platform, and in spite of
the very inclement weather the dome
is rapidly noaring completion. The
contract had been let at sf:i,324 at
Hock Island and the amount is being
raised by special subscriptions in
various cities. The dome will some
what resemble the one on the eapitol
building at Springfield. It will be
covered with galvanized iron, and is
probably the most telling and widely
noticeable improvement that is being
made at the college. .
An elegant portico has now been
built on. The main pillers are IS feet
high and of polished Massachusetts
granite. The style is Corinthian. A
well built stairway is a lilting con
tinuation of the one going up from
the avenue at the lower end of the
wide walk just in front of the main
building. I he entire portico com
pletes, for thelirst time the imposing
structure tirst occupied live years
ago. This portico was built at the
contract price of !?'. '74. a sum which
is generally coiisidcrnd as very re
These various improvements are
supplemented by t he frescoing of the
halls and recitation rooms and the
changes going on within the build
ings. An elegant fountain is being
placed in trout and between the two

During commencement week at
Augustana college, many people vis
it the twin cities: but this year then'
will be many more attractions. Be
sides minor reasons for coming,
there will be the anniversary exer
cises of the commercial department,
a musical entertainment by the pu
pils in the conservatory, the college
commencement, the great tri-centeu-nial
jubilee, singing contests, ath
letic exhibitions, alumni reunion and
dinner, dedications, the synodical
meeting, and the university associa
tion exposition. This would attract
almost any one. even during an ordi
nary year. But when we remember
t hat many will come here with the
intention of taking in the World's
Fair at the same time, there is no
doubt that the provisions to lie made
for the coming thousands will re
quire the fullest attention of the gen
tlemen having the arrangements in
A canvass of the twin cities is be

i-iviii" price per day or week, per
person, without board. If board is
ottered, it shoulil ne mane a separate
item. People intending to be here
are expected to apply to Prof. Liml
berg, stating about what price they
are willing to pay. and rooms will
then be assigned by mail. This will
avoid much confusion. Persons ar
riving should go direct to the bureau
of information of the college, unless
otherwise provided for. All trains
will be met by representatives of the
committees. " While the reception
committee will do all in its power to
assist those who come without pre
vious notice, it cannot guarantee ac
commodations to any except those
who make application beforehand.
Of course the hotels will be tilled.
Arrangements for the feeding of
the thousands are receiving much at
tention. In conjunction with the
business manager, in whom all the
preparations center. Profs. A. W.
Williamson, J. E. (Justus, and P. C.
FreJa form the committee. After
the'rusli of the jubilee days is over,
the visitors can be taken care of in
various portions of the city, with the
addition of some extra facilities.
This will be the case with the break
fasts and suppers even on the biggest
davs. But provisions for the noon
day meal will, to a great extent, fall
upon the refreshment committee.
The college dining hall can take care
of about 800 during the two hours
devoted to dinner. The ladies" so
ciety of the Zion .Swedish Lutheran
church, of Hock Island, has promised
to provide an enormous tent, in
which about 2,000 can be accommo
dated during the noon hour. Grace
En"lish Lutheran church, of this
citv, has also been invited to lend a
helping hand. Then there will be
lunch "counters without number, be
sides manv refreshment stands, in
addition to the neighboring houses
that have been run for the students
during the past school year. The
committee expects to have provisions
for abont 5,000 people, who may de
sire to take their riVjon meal in the
immediate vicinity of the college.
Of course, many will go to their stop
ping places, and the down town
restaurants and hotels will be crowded
to their full capacity.
There are good reasons to believe
that one and a third will be round
trip rate on the railways. This can
not yet be definitely announced.
The matter is in charge of Prof. A.
W. Williamson. He is in Chicago on
the matter. Should the threatened
railway war break out, the rates will
of course be much lower. In that
case we may look for such a crowd
of people as never before visited this
vicinity. A programme committee is
arranging for the festivities, ami Fri
day, June 9. will be the big day,
though of course much of interest
will occur both before ami after that.
The reputation of the twin cities as
entertainers will receive a severe
test, but it will be seen from the
preparations mentioned above, that
the various committees are taking
no chances on a failure.
