The INiitltlon Sustained by the Court An other Victory for the Ruck Iit'aiul Coun cil In Itelmir of raving-Other 1'ro.ee.l liign In Court. Judrre (ilenn disnoscd of tl.o nni: cation for injunction in the Twenty- ' ' r.in:-i paving improvement tliis noon, llV (lisillissill" the l.ill n.wl .In lining to interfere' with the council's position in the matter. The eon rt maintains that the ob jection to the ordinance on the ground that it was void and irregu lar, that should have lieen tiled in the county court at the time the judg ment was rendered cannot lie urged as a ground for an injunction now. The petitioners n this point had their day in court and failed to avail themselves of it, and cannot he heard now. The cenoral al averred in the bill are not sufficient because the o.-.ly facts set out are that the council acted fraudulently with reference to the brick selected", and on the point of merit in mate rial the court holds the council is just as competent to determine as the court is. Further than this, the court de clines the application on the ground that K. .1. Mi l ice having withdrawn his cheek and bid, there is really no bid before Ihe court in dispute with that on which the council acted fa vorably. The ruling of tlic court will cause much gratification in view of the fact that it is the first instance where opposition has been exerted in court to paving progress in any form, and the outcome is a decided victory for the council in such mat ters.

The beating of a drum down Sec ond avenue about 8 o'clock last evening created considerable conster nation in the ranks of the local re publican tarty.

A Number ;iven in Rork Islam! end Mo line ljtxt KvenliiR. The Ladies' Missionary society ol the United Presbyterian church cele brated its 20th anniversary yesterday afternoon. The missionary societies of all the churches had been invited to participate in the exercises. The program consisted of addresses by Mrs. J. II. Mills, of the Hroadway church, Mrs. Brown, of the First M. K. church, and others. Miss Lizzie Hladcl gave a recitation, and Mrs. Liston and Miss Kllen Philp ren dered a vocal duet. Letters of greet ing were received from Mrs. J. R. McAllister ami Mrs. J. A. Reynolds, former presidents of the society. The penny-a-dav mission boxes were opened ami found to contain $:!!. At the conclusion of the program 'he audience adjourned to the lecture room, where the .ladies of the Pres byterian society gave a missionary tea. The liirtlulay Has Tarty. The birthday bag party, given by the ladies of the Central Presbyterian church, was held nt the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Gest last even ing. Fully 150 people were present, and a most enjoyable evening was spent. The ladies had sent out 200 invitations, and accompanying each was a small silk bag, in which the recipient was supposed to deposit a penny for each year of his life. The little silken vaults when returned lil'ed a large ornamental bowl. There was an informal program, in which the Misses Gest and Connelly gave an instrumental duet, and Miss Jessie Hogue a vocal solo. The "Three Fates" was a living tableau, which held forth in an upper room, and as each visitor to the shrine en tered, he was given a card which was supposed to be a foreshadow of the future. Characterized Sonffs. A bright and clever entertainment was given at the First M. K. church last evening. The Grecian scarf drill was by the Misses Nellie Spencer, Lulu Bennett, Florence Freeman, Bessie Cleaveland. Jennie Greg;, TinaMcXetin and Winnie Huntoon. The little misses were dressed in colors, and besides going through a drill, difficult in the extreme, posed in a manner that would have done credit to professionals. Twelve lit tle pirls as the Tojisy Turvy" chorus, sang a medley, during the chorus of which their'shr.es showed over a low screen. "Old Black Joe"1 was rendered by F'ranklin Griffith. "Three Little Maids From School," and "The Gypsy Counters' by Jen nie Hudson and Graeie Wilson, and "Grnnnmothcr's Advice by Lutie Bullies, were very good. The clos ing number was: "In Search of Happiness," and showed the rejec tion of everything except religion. Ice cream and cake were afterwards served by the ladies. ' A great many Rock Islanders went to Mo'ine last "evening to attend a sociable and musical given at the res idence of Miss Molly ' McF.nirv. The musical was highly interesting and (juile a number of Rock lslaudcrs contributed toward it. A. F.. Hyde gave a recitation entitled "Xmas at the Quarters," to which he received a well deserved encore and respond ing, he recited, "Tillman Joy of Spunky Point." Competition Ha Itonc It. WUh keen competition between newspapers and a keener competi tion be. ween publishers to produce what the newspapers most desire it has become almost a problem for newspaper publishers to make selec tions among the many attractions offered, to secure what they are as sured will be most attractive to their readers. It is not too much to say that nearly everything that is offered is good. Nothing bad can be popular in our day. Readers have been educated. They can distin guish between the trashy and the really valuable. So it comes that the publisher of the newspaper is often perplexed. But, just at the present time, newspaper publishers are hardly hesitating. There has been produced a work so obviously attractive and so obviously of the greatest value, that nothing else offered by the publishing world can well compare with it. Reference is had to the work just issuing, en titled "America's Great Men and Women." What the work referred to is, is told in detail in the advertising col umns of the Au;t s. The publisher of this newspaper has only to say that the work exceeds anything yet offered to the community, in con nection with the promotion of news paper circulation. . It is something interesting to young and old; some thing new, giving new facts: some thing relating to t he present affairs of prominent people of the country; something never before obtainable in a single work or in such charming form. It is a marvelous production. I'edcral Appointment. " Hon. James O. Garrett, of Spar land, was yesterday appointed gaug cr at Peoria by Collector Hunter. United States Marshal J. W. Ar nold visited Peoria yesterday and named R. R. Voris, of" that city, as his deputy there.
