Today was Woodmen's day, and
none more beautiful could have been
wished for. The air was invigorat
ing and a refreshing breeze made it
an ideal one in every respect, and
suitably litted for the occasion.
The entire city, including business
houses and residences, put on its
holiday attiro in honor of the visit
ing members of Woodcraft. Three
excursions on the Josephine, Verne
Swain and Kock Island & Peoria road,
brought hundreds of visitors to the
city, and gave it the appearance of
some great fete day. The head of
fices of the order at Fulton were
closed and Head Clerk Hawes, to
gether with the attaches of the olliee
came down in u body. Head Consul
Northcott and Directors Johnson.
Haydeeker and Heeee were also pres
ent and part ici pated in the festivi
ties. It was truly Woodmen's day,
many branehes of business partially
suspending to allow members of the
order and others to enjoy a day in
sylvan shades. The employes of
head offices who were present are as
follows: Misses Lizzie Logan. C.
Fay, Emma Chandler, Myrtle Dade.
Margaret Tracy. Blanche In.-kec.
Messrs Frank E. tiraves. C. E.

Welcomed ly Mayor Medill.
At l:Si o'clock the assemblage was
called to order by S. W. Searle. and
Mavor Medill delivered an address of
welcome. He spoke as follows:
To the Officers anil Members of the
Modern Woodmen of America. (Jen
tleme.i: It is with great pleasure
that I welcome you to our city, and
I esteem it a hig'ii honor to be in the
position to welcome such a concourse
of people. Although not now within
the corporate limits of the city of
Kock Island, still we deeri it our du
ty and privilege to welcome you to
this beautiful spot. It is frequented
greatly by Bock Island people, who
come "here to enjoy themselves and
commune with nature. Consequent
ly we claim it as our own. as though
it was located within our city limits.
Gentlemen, to this place is attached
much interest. It is a historic spot,
made famous by the fact that it was
at one time the Watch tower of Black
Hawk, one of the bravest of the
brave. It was here and from this
promontory that he watched with ea
gle eve for the approach of his ene
mies! the white men. as they came
forward from the interior and eastern
portion of the state to give him bat
tle and drive him to the west of the
great father of waters. It was here
that he held his councils not with
Woodmen, but with red men. They
did not then enjoy the nlanv luxuries
and conveniences that we have now.
A toboggan slide would have been a
novel thing to them, as also would
have elect rie cars, electric light, etc..
but no doubt thev enjoyed them
selves no less than we. and had
their log rolling just the same.
Gentlemen. the objects and
aims of your order are noble
ones, ami that the merit of your plan
of co-operative insurance is appre
ciated, is certainly attested by the
fact of the great nicmlcrship you
have enrolled. The growth of your
society has been marvelous. In a
comparative few years, you have
sprung from obscurity to one of the
"reatest co-operative societies in ex
istence. But why not? As I stated
before, your aim is noble, therefore,
your efforts should be attended with
success. You have provided a way
or plan by which thousands of men
in ordinary or humble circumstances,
in case of death, may secure to their
families that immunity from want
and destitution that confronts them.
You have been the friend of the
wido' and fatherless, and have
lightened their burdens in a most
substantial manner. Another fea
ture of your organization is, as I un
derstand, the social elevation of your
members. This is a most commend
able object and worthy of cultiva
tion. The advancement of man un
der inttuerifces of this nalure has
been productive of much good. It
teaches them to love one another, in
culcates in them the duties of good
citizenship and brings them together
to work in harmony and good fellow
ship. I am not conversant enough
with the statistics of your order to
dwell upon the great benefits and
blessings you have done, but I pre
sume these features will be handled
by speakers you have with you. I
have the pleasure of being a mem
ber of C. W. Hawes camp 1550 of
Kock Island, named in honor of your
worthy head clerk anil ourold towns
man, and I can assure you, although
I have not been as regular an at
tendant at the meetings as I should
have been, still my interest in the
order has not Hagged. I trust that
your society may continue to pros
per and increase its membership;
that you have solved the problem of
the effect of time upon co-operative
insurance, and that during your stay
here and in this vicinty, you may all
enjoy yourselves to the fullest extent
possible. Gentlemen, again I wel
come you. The city is yours, take
good care of it, and when you get
through, return it in good shape.
KoHpouxp by the Head Cnnsnl.
At the conclusion of Mayor Medill's
address. Head Consul Northcott re
sponded in a speech of humorous vein
and spoke of the appropriate sur
roundings for an affair of the kind.
In closing lie returned thanks for the
entertainment and was followed by
J. E. Haas, C. T. Lleydecker and
others who made addresses appro
priate to the occasion.
Let's Hope It Will.
Among the bills that recently
passed the general assembly was the
one in relation to societies or associ
ations furnishing indemnity or life
insurance by which such societies
may transact any business outside
the state that they could legally do
within its limits, and also making
all ousiness of their nature hereto
fore transacted legal in the eyes of
the law. In view of the fact that
it will in all probability effect ualy
quiet the effort that have been made
to keep the head officers of the
Woodmen at Fulton, it. is more than
ltkclv that action will be taken at
this meeting to have the offices
brought here a the order decided to
CATTON IN PARIS.
The Koek 1-laml ltillianliKt Itlstiiieuishes
A Paris paper of a recent date con
tained the following relating to Kock
Island's expert billiard player, Billy
Two things have upset the billiard
loving world of Basis during the past
week. One was the unexpected form
sh wn by Ives, the American, in his
match with lioberts, the English
champion. The other was the veri
tication of what has been said in this
column of The Galignani Messenger
of the reallv line form Catton, the
only American champion in Paris,
has attained. Catton s unrivalled
performance at the Koyal Club Bil
liard academy. Hue t. llonore, tasi
niirht. won much money for his
friends, and has rendered this e stab
lishment, if possible, even more po-
ular. Catton s unprecedented per
formance last night was what Amer
icans call a '-hog killing." Tin
American champion was in line
form, and all Ins friends were
on hand. The luxurious billiard
hall was filled to its utmost capac
ity. Money poured on the table
for Fournil as soon as :i three-cushion
match between this French cham
pion and the American "Kock Island
Wonder" was announced, and the
bookmakers soon had their I boxes
stuffed with gold and banknotes.
Fournil was a little careless in string
ing for a lead, and Catton opened
the play. He ran up 4; the game
bcin" only 8 noints. tourml re
sponded with 3 points, and Catton
could do no better than 1 point.
FourniFs next effort yielded him 2
points, and then Catton with three
beautiful all around shots ran out.
Then came the revenge, anil the dif
ficulty was to take the money rapid
ly enough to satisfy the eager bettors
on the second Spoints-up game
This was the rccordbreak. Fournil
scored carefully enough this time for
the lead. Tho cycs of his anxious
backers were bent upon him. In
vain. Catton's ball came fully an
eighth of an inch nearer to the lower
cushion and he spotted his adver
sary's ball ami made the opening
Catton Kep)K (iaininjr.
The American scored, and went on
and on, with never a sign of stop
ping. The balls were apparently
sa7e" when Catton tried for his
sixth point, and the American made
a desperate shot that looked ridicul
ously impossible. It counted.
'Sept," cried the marker, "et pour
tin" Catton scored again very finely
and a round of applause, taken up
again and again, was bestowed on
him for this exceptionally line bit of
play, and Fournil, with . a disgusted
air," put away his cue. It was un
doubtedly one of the finest exhibi
tions of billiards ever seen. Catton's
friends nearly shook his hand off
after it, and there is now no doubt of
a match being fairly offered for Cat
ton against Carter. The coming
week will see a splendid program at
the Koyal club.

Taking advantage of the opportu
nity the Union offers to anonymous
correspondents to indulge in coward
ice and blackguardism, one who
signs himself "X. Y. "contributes a
column of rot to the make up of that
sheet this morning. The Akots'
comments on the unwarranted re
moval of Miss Kane from the corps
of teachers through the A. P. A. in
fluences after 13 years of faithful and
efficient service, is taken as the provo
cation for this screed on the part of
the nameless individual who for
want of something better adopts the
last end of the alphabet as a nan de
While The Autsrs would perhaps
maintain its self respect more becom
mingly were it to ignore the in titter
ings of the Union's correspondent
entirely, in view of the fact, how
ever, that in his distorted efforts to
say something contemptible he has
ignored the true position of The
Au!fS, it may not be amiss to repeat
the position maintained in these col
umns in the issue following the ac
tion of the board in removing Miss
Kanewithoutcause and wherein these
remarks appeared: --None will dis
pute the propriety of the rule which
gives graduates of the public schools
an advantage over applicants for
positions as teachers who are not
lut it does not seem to he the proper
policy to inaugurate such a plan
where it strikes a teacher who has
served in the public schools faith
fully for 13 years as Miss Kane has.
and whose record as a teacher can
not be assailed."
It ought not to be necessary for
Tiik Awn s to submit further argu
incut in support of its own position
than the reproduction of the above,
sett ing fort h as it does its position,
which is . that pu blie school grad nates
should always be given precedent-
in the choice of teachers over all
others, vet it deplores and condemn?
a bigoted, narrow, unreasonable and
inconsistent policy such as tail-cndcr
advocates in the I nion, to which the
board cjf education has yielded to in
the case of Miss Kane. Hud that
ladv been a candidate for a position
in the public schools side by side
with an applicant of public school
training Iiie Ai:;is would say
favor the public school teacher
everv time. But when Miss Kane
became a teacher such a rule was
not in vogue nor had it ever been
suggested. The imaginary dangers
that havesince surrounded the public
schools as to necessitate the forma
tion of secret societies to go to the
front and run things hud not then
ariseu- The davs ot an armory in
every Koman Catholic church with
batteries turned on every public
school house had not vet dawned
So Miss Kane received her appoint
ment, and she has proven herself
worthy of the conlidence placed in
her for many years. It is a very late
day to apply such a rule to Miss
Kane's case The Ahcls holds, after
she has been permitted to serve these
many years, has adopted her profes
sion anil demonst rated her fitness and
devotion to it. The rule should in a
word be applied at the beginning
not after 13 years of service and then
as a mere pretext to make way for
teachers of A. P. A. parentage.
Il:irk Ltntrrn Method.
The Ak;i s furthermore, feels it a
duty to speak of the way the dark
lantern methods ot tlie A. I . A. liave
been carried into the board of educa
tion meetings, and where the direc
tors shield their votes and acts from
the people who send them there to
guard their interests. The public
school is a public institution, the
school directors are public servants
and they should be guided in their
acts as school directors by their ob
ligations to the people not by their
obligations to the A. P. A. organiza
tion. The Autsrs considers itself as
staunch a friend of the public school
system as any oath bound member of
the secret A." P. A. organization, and
would be as quick to defend it from
attack were the occasion to arise, ami
if such emergency were to arise it is
a safe presumption that 'X. Y. '..,"
and others of his ilk who attack
through anonymous communications
would not be found in the front rank
of a fight ing army.

Two months ago if a man wanted '
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are. good. The objection to the first
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing ont of the filtering discs.
Today, in the so-called "Kapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both filters are combined.
I have the "Kapid," and will be glad
to show it.
