Owing to the intense heat and the
threatening storm, the meeting of the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement
associatio n, called by President Jack
son last evening, was not as well at
tended as would otherwise have been
the case. Nevertheless, there were a
number of representative citizens
present, and while it was thought
wise to defer the meeting to a future
time when the weather is milder, the
matter to be left in the discretion of
President Jackson, there was an in
formal discussion of matters before
the association, as well as the best
course to be pursued looking to its
reorganization. It was the unani
mous op nion that the association
should be given a new start, and to
place it n a solid and permanent
basis a social feature should be
added an I a new list of membership
secured with that understanding',
that new quarters with accommoda
tions suitable for the introduction of
billiard and reading rooms provided.
This matter will be brought up at
the next meeting as demanding "the
immediate attention of the associa
tion. The Columbian 1'ark.
President Jackson brought up the
matter ot the proposed new public
park in tiie eastern portion of the
city, speaking of the popular feeling
with whi -h the suggestion to secure
a portion of the Columbian tract for
such purposes was received, and the
fact that already a petition was in
c reulatic n u.ging the city to take
the necessary steps to purchase a
block of the land for such purposes.
The association had done its work
well so for in relation to its parks
and other public improvements, with
the resul , that Rock Island had be
come kne wn as the fity of beautiful
parks and streets, and that t'.e money
expended in improvements of this
sort had onie back many fold in the
good it h nt done the citv in adver

that other steps be taken that will

seen a grander meeting anywhere.
He was satisfied that a better series
of races had never taken place in this

O, WHAT A NIGHT!
Humanity Swelter- During: the Iimnl
Hour. I f
Last night was one of the nights
you read about. For an hour or two
after the sun went down great lurid
Hashes of heat lightning shot
athwart the sky, and people who had
suffered all day with the heat felt
that at last relief was at hand and
that in the course of a few hours
there would be a delightful down
pour that would cool off the feverish
atmosphere and refreshen things
generally. But, alas! the rain came
not, and even the wind that had
sprung up during the evening got
tired of blowing itself and died away.
Then humanity did catch it. People
who didn't happen to have an east
window to catch the little breeze that
was stirring, lay on tneir beds and
tossed about, longing for morning to
come again. Many got up ami
walked the streets, "and many hotel
windows contained white forms of
persons reaching out after a breath
of cool air.
Thin the Ilottext Day.
Today was not much better, and it
now looks as though the prediction
of the signal service that Wednesday,
Thursday anil Friday of this week
would be the average hottest days of
the year was about true. Today is
the hottest day so far, the signal ser
vice thermometer in Davenport reg
istering 1)4. Notwithstanding the
extreme heat the atmosphere was
tempered by a cooling breeze not
characteristic of yesterday. No en
couragement is offered by the weath
er bureau, as the indications are for
continued hot weather.
KcsiiltK or the Heat.
William Kurth, of 707 Fourth
street, was overcome by the heat on
reaching home last evening. lie was
attended bv Dr. Kinyon, and no se
rious results are anticipated.
John Russell, lineman in the em
ploy of of the Central Union Tele
phone company, was overcome by
the heat yesterday and is unable to
work. No serious results are antici
pated. A man out rowing in a skiff, oppo
site Nineteenth street, yesterdav af
ternoon was overcome bv the heat,
and was prostrated. He was taken
to his home in Davenport by friends,
who were along with him.
Lon Petcher was overcome by the
heat while down town last evening.
He was taken to Marshall & Fisher's
drug store, where he was given
treatment and afterward taken to his
home on a street ear.
Henry Butler at work on the Mitseh
building on Third avenue, was over
come by the heat yesterday after
noon, and was conveved to his home
on Seventh avenue, where Dr. Kin
von attended him. Nothing serious
AMONG THE SOLONS.
The StiprrviHors Make Abatement New
The board of supervisors put in a
busy session this morning, devoting
itself to the question of abatements.
The Davenport & Rock Island street
railway company prayed for an
abatement of its taxes from $2,100 to
$1,500 per mile, while the Moline
Central asked a similar reduction on
its property. Arguments were made
showing that in no city in the state
were street railway franchises taxed
as the- are in this county; that the
highest assessment any where out
side of the city of Chicago, is $G00 a
mile, and the tax on the cable roads
in Chicago does not exceed $1,000.
The board in thu lirst place rejected
the petition of Davenport & Rock
Island company, and then reduced
the Moline Central assessment to
$1,000 on T. rail and $1,500 on tram.
The action on the petition of the
Davenport. & Rock Island railway was
thereupon reconsidered and the tax
on the track all tram rail of that
company reduced to $1,50!).
The tax on St.. Anthony's hospital
was abated entirely, the board show
ing the proper spirit in this, as in its
action relating to the railways.
The board has some important
work to do at this session if a spec
ial session is not called for the pur
pose in redisricting some of the
voting precincts of the city. The
law prescribes that where a sinie
voting precinct shows more than 450
voters the precinct must be divided.
Under this provision the Sec
ond, Third. Fourth, Fifth and
Seventh wards in Rock Island
and the Second and Third
in Moline must be subdivided and
given two voting places each. The
township of South Moline asked for a
similar division on the strength of
466 votes cast at the last election,
but the board finds that 35 of those
votes were cast by women, and hence
will let the township remain as it is.
The Deere Company.
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of Deere & Company was
held on Tuesday and Wednesday at
the office in Moline. C. H. Deere, S.
H. Velie, C. C. Webber aud William
Butterworth were chosen directors,
the personnel of the board remaining
the same as heretofore with the ex
ception that C. O. Nason retires,
William Butterworth taking his
place. The outlook was discussed at
considerable length, and in view of
all the circumstances the situation
was considered but fairly promising.
The shops will be started in some
departments by August 1, or as
much of them as can be run by water
