ter a nunilii'ii ot patriotic songs and
a short time spent in sociabili
ty the pleasant occasion was at an
Columbian Note feigner Meet to Con
Endorsers on the Columbian land
and celebration notes to the number
of 20 met last evening at the office of
E. E. Morgan, in Moline, to consider
the best course to pursue in view of
the action of the State Savings bank
in Moline in bringing action against
the endorsers of the $7,0(10 note un
der which so much money was ob
tained from that bank for the first
payment on the Brooks tract. After
an extended discussion of the situa
tion, a committee was appointed
composed of Messrs. H. A. Ains
worth, L. Simon. Morris Rosentield
and E. H. Guyer, to see the S3 note
signers and try to make arrange
ments whereby each shall either pay
bis proportion of the $14,000 and ac
crued interest or sign individual
notes for the amount, with an ac
ceptable endorsement, and thus take
up both of the joint liability notes.
Messrs. Jackson and Yclie as trus
tees of the land and who are not
only jointly responsible with the
note signers in all obligations as
sumed for the first payment, but in
addition thereto for the balance due
guaranteed to the Brooks heirs by
mortgage, presented an agreement
for the signatures of their associates
in the purchase, making the 3:! equal
shares in the liability and placing
them under obligation to help carry
it until such time as the property
shall be disposed of. This was no"t
accepted last evening owever, as the
note signers preferred time for con
sideration, hut it is likely that
some ''course of. procedure will be
adopted that wiil insure mutual pro
tection to all interested. A number
of propositions were considered last
night, on being offered by Mr. Guyer
to be one of lo to form a syndicate
and guarantee a .; bid eoveVing all
Khoiilil Stitiift Together,
In whatever is done it is to be
hoped the gentlemen who through
their enterprise and public spirit
have become involved in this under
taking, will stand together, with no
be shirking of responsibility or at
tempt to take advantage of w hatever
situation may present itself. There
need lie no fear of the outcome, the
Aui;rs is confident, if the move is
lnailecautiously and in a cool-headed,
business-like manner. The land is
worth much more than the purchase
money originally agreed upon, and
surely some means will eventually
bedcised whereby those who have
interested themselves in it will be
recompensed to the fullest extent on
what they have risked.
A SADDENED HOME.
Mrs. Hen C Kcat r IaHrd Awii3' at Mid
night. Mrs. Grace Webber Keator, wife of
Ben C. Keator, if Moline, died a few

been suffering f r some time, and in
hopes of relie i lg which she had re
cently undergone a difficult surgical
operation. . Tin news of the death of
this excellent and admirable lady
will carry sorrow to many hearts and
homes in Rock Island, where she was
brought up, and which, until siie be

He has a number of aliases, and his

It is stated that he is well acquaint
