At last night's meeting of the eity
council considerable business was
transacted. All the truant aldermen
lent their presence to giving the oc
casion a novel appearance. Immedi
ately after the meeting was called to
order and the reading of the minutes.
Mayor Medill announced the name of
George Green for eity scavenger, he
being confirmed unanimously. For
police patrolmen he presented the
names of Frederick Ohhveiler, who
was unanimously confirmed; James
Maucker was confirmed by a vote of
12 to 2, and John Mulqueen by a
vote of 18 no 1. The select ions made
by Mayor Medill in this respect at
a wise choice and will aid materially
in the city's service.
A Kooky Tluir for Tramp
Aid. Foss began his official career
by introducing a resolution for the
establishment of a stone pile where
the city can provide suitable enter
tainment for tramps and other unde
sirable visitors. This class of tour
ists is becoming altogether too nu
merous in the city and the new ac
quisition will give them a chance to
exercise and display their brawn. As
soon as the box ear fraternities be
come advised of the fact that a stone
pile awaits them here they will give
the town a wide berth. The Gilpin
and Franklin hose house bids were
opened, and the Franklin property
sold to Frederick Ludolph for S5t;,
and the Gilpin house to Gilpin Moore
The Official Criming:.
A long discussion was brought
about on a motion to award the ofli
cial printing to The Alters and
Union. Several members of the
council proposed different wecklv pa
pers in this citv and l)avenport with
about as much reason for one weekly
as t he other. The discussion was
quite lengthy, most of the aldermen
participating, the general opinion
seeming to be that it should onlv be
printed in the dailies. It was tinal-
lv referred to the printing commit,
tee for future action.
Several of the bonds of the new
officials were received and approved

limit of appropriations last year was
$1.15. Oso. This year the "limit is
$1 1.371.2.1. making a deficit for the
year 1!3 of $lf.:?os.77. This differ
ence is caused by the difference in
taxable proportv in the years 18'Jl

more in unexpended funds in 1;)2
than the present year, which makes
the total difference in the limit of ap

The Various Preparations In Progrresa at
In the various preparations at Au-
gustana college the great jubilee day
and grand concert are kept more
prominently in view. There being
no auditorium in the twin cities suf
ficiently large, a tent has been pro
cured. This is about a block long
and nearly half a block wide. It will
be pitched in University park, at the
corner of Fifth avenue and Thirty
eighth street, just below the college
grounds, heats and chairs will be
provided for 6,000, and most of the
space will be floored. The seating
capacity may be increased to 8,000,
it necessary, as two tents are to be
kept in readiness. The platform will
seat about 600.
The Urand Concert.
The programme for the grand con
cert cannot vet be announced defin
itely. It will consist of two English
cantatas, Gade's 'Zion'1' and the
"Song of Thanksgiving," by Cowen,
a jubilee cantata in Swedish, com
posed by Dr. Stolpe, of the Angus
tana conservatory of music; three
choruses, Xos. 3S, 44 and 56, from
Handel's Messiah," and linally,
David's Psalm CL, by Wennerberg.
The accompaniment will be a pipe
organ and a selected orchestra com
posed of 75 members, all of whom are
soloists. A pipe organ'of extraordi
nary strength is being built for the
occasion, and will be presided over
by Clarence Eddy, of Chicago. The
chorus will number about 500,
though it is probable it will be con
siderably increased should the rail
ways make the reduced rates expect
ed. The orchestra of Bethany col
lege will also accompany certain por
tions, making thus a double orches
tra. Prof. Griffith, of the conserva
tory, will be in charge of the music.
Friday, June 6. is the date of the
grand concert and jubilee. Fifty cents
will be the admission price for the
cwncert in the evening, with a slight
additional charge for reserve! seats.
Tickets will be on sale about two
weeks in advance, and announce
ments of time and place will be made
later. Although the seating capaci
ty is to be G,(M., the demand for
seats promises to be very large, on
account of the hundreds and thou
sands expected. It will be well to
make purchases letore the concert
opens. For one hour before hand.
an open air concert will be given by
the Augiistana silver cornet band and
the Bethany college baud. From the
great dome, newly erected on the
main building, the bands will alter
nate for the pleasure of the thou
sands crathering below. Both of
theseorgani.ations have shown them
selves well drilled, and the unique
arrangement will, no doubt, produce
a line effect.
It is intended that the great tent
or auditorium should be used for the
iubllee festival Friday ami Saturday.
and that the Sunday services should
also be held in it. The ladv student?
of the college have been named a
committee to decorate the various
buildings for the occasion.
It is unfortunate that the railway
companies should have so much diffi
culty arranging orld s lair luisi
ness" that other matters are not re
ceiving the attention they should.
o definite announcement can, as
vet, be made as to reduced rales.
The railways centering in Hock Isl
and are willing to make the most lib
eral concessions in reduced fare; but
as the matter lies with the Western
Passenger association, some outlying
roads are said to be using thisoppor
t tin it v to gain certain privileges for
themselves in their own territory.
The matter is in the hands of Prof. A.
W. Williamson, w ell known as a vet
eran in the matter of railway conces
sions, and there seems to he no doubt
but that one and one-third will be
the rate for the round trip.
The committee making the canvass
for rooms reports that liberal offers
are being received on all sides. How
ever, more rooms are needed, and
anyone willing to hclpentcrtain some
of the visitors should write Prof. P.
M. Li n d berg, at the college, stating
how many rooms they will let out,
and at what compensation. The min
isters who come arc, of course, influ
ential in their congregations and
neighborhood, and the lay delegates
and other visitors ire generally wide
awake, solid business men. To prop
erly care for 10.000 or 15.000 people
is no ordinary task, and conventions
of this size are now every day occur
rences. Here is an opportunity for
the twin cities to leave a good im
pression upon those who come, and
this occasion should not be neglected.
Hurled In a Storm ltraln.
Gus Broberg, a Moline loborer, met
with an unfortunate accident last
ni'Mit that came near ending his life,
if.indeed, he does not die yet. He
was at work for the Davis company
digging in a storm drain at Nine
teenth street and Fifth avenue and
was down about 12 feet below the
surface. For some reason the dirt
gave way and before the unfortunate
man could get away he was complete
ly covered. A large force was at
work in a few moments but it was
nearly 10 minutes before he could be
reached and the dirt taken away
from his head. He was found almost
exhausted but afterward recovered
and was taken to his home where he
is getting along as well as could be
expected. It is thought now that he
will possibly recover.

K. Ckamitox & Co.
Boaffht a Bigr Stock Farm.
L. S. McCabe has returned from
Des Moines and Montezuma, Iowa,
where he has closed an impor
tant land deal, on the outcome
of which he is rather to be
congratulated. The transaction in
volves the transfer by Mr. McCabe of
a 98-acre piece of property near the
state fair grounds at Des Moine"s to
J. V. Farwell, of Chicago, for a high
ly improved and highly cultivated
stock farm of 1,541 acres situated
within live miles of Montezuma, la.
The farm is stocked with 50 breeding
horses of Aberdeen Angus stock and
350 head of English shire cattle. The
farm is inclosed in 25 miles of fence,
and on the premises are a $10,000
artesian well and a $10,000 barn, be
sides two dwellings and other build
ings. The amount involved in the
deal was $100,000, and Mr. McCabe
feels that he has not got the worst
end of it by any means. He will not
abandon commercial for farm life,
but will put his rural possessions in
f Police Points.
Magistrate Schroeder's office now
fairly glistens in a new decoration of
wall paper and paint.
L. Aspin, arrested for assault and
battery, had his hearing before Mag
istrate Schroeder yesterday evening
and was fined $3 and costs.
The police were called to shoot a
dog that displayed symptoms of be
ing mad up on Nineteenth street at
noon today. The animal was dis
patched in short order.
Chief Sexton and Night Cap
tain Kramer arrested Wesley Ked
dig and Mrs. Susan Balliet about
12 o'clock last night on a
charge of adultery and fornication.
The complaint was sworn out by
John W. Balliet, the husband of the
woman, w ho now lives in Moline, and
who was arrested some weeks ago for
carrying concealed weapons, namely,
a pistol of the Krupp sizi with which
he proposed to annihilate Roddig.
They have been separated for some
time and the woman has been living
with Reiblig on Third street between
Fifth and Sixth avenues. They will
have a hearing before Magistrate
Schroeder this evening.
Our Irish Neiehbors. "
The roaring comedy success. Our
Irish Neighbors," is be presented at
Harper's theatre tomorrow night.
Savs the Dayton Journal:
Two immense audiences greeted
the return of the sparkling Irish
farce-comedy, '-Our Irish Neigh
bors." yesterday. This laughing
success has played quite a numberof
engagements in tins city, but the
company now appearing at the Park
is the best that has ever been seen in
this "skit.'' The company is exeej
tionally strong, and includes a host
of clever comedians and vocalists.
No. there is no plot, but the fun is
unlimited and t he audience is kept
in a continual uproar from the rise
to the fall of the curtain. The sing
ing is far above the average, and
every number was encored. "Our
Irish Neighbors" will turn people
away during the entire week, and if
you desire seats you should get them
in advance and avoid the rush.

Making a Hit.
The Andrews Opera company has
been playing a series of engagements
in the city of Burlington. The Hawk
Eye has many compliments to pay it.
It's leading people, it is stated, are
effective and have made themselves
very popular with the theatre goers
there, and the operas have all been
delicately and artistically rendered.
The audiences have been such as to
crowd the house, which has a capaci
ty little inferior to the Burtis at Dav
enport. We shall all probably enjoy
them equally well when we hear them
in Davenport next week.
