Rock Island streets presented the appearance of a metropolis yesterday. There were many strangers in the city. An excursion came up from Peoria, consisting of 12 coaches, and carrying about 800 people. It was under the auspices of the Brotherhood 01 locomotive Trainmen, and was pulled by engine 1.5, with John Paddon at the throt tle, in charge of Conductor Hayile Horn. The excursionists divided their time between the base ball game and the Watch Tower. Street Can Did Business. In the afternoon the crowds thronged the street cars, a magnifi cent service being provided on all the lines, calling into play all the rolling stock in the company's possession, and demons! rating the need for more trailers on big days. Eight thousand people visited the Tower to see the new Midway, the largest crowd that ever went there with the exception of last Fourth of July. Over two thou sand visited Twin-City ball back. All the visitors were well entertained between the novel attractions at the Tower and the base ball game at the park. The Coal Supply. The Moline Dispatch has gathered the following information as to the coal supply and the manufacturers there: Deere & Co. have an abundance of fuel to run them until their regular closing down time. Deere & Mansur Co. have about two weeks supply, and should the strike not be settled by that time would be forced to suspend. The Moline Plow company has a fair supply, but is running partly by water power, and if necessary can di vide its force and run by water day and night. The Sechler Carriage company anil Mutual Wheel company are well sup plied. Barnard & Leas have enough fuel to last some time and are prepared to use sawdust for boiler firing if worst conies to worst. The Pump company is well sup plied for present needs. Diniock. Gould & Co. are not wor rying. They have a fair supply on hand, have a barge at Hampton, and say that there is an abundance of coal up north which is available. They also use a good deal of wood, and could use more in case of necessity. The Moline Wagon company has been caught unprepared, having only coal enough to run until next week, when the works will lie compelled to close down, unless coal can be ob tained. Off, an filial. From the construction which the Union placed upon the result of the democratic caucuses Saturday night, it evidently knows no more of the probable action at the convention to morrow than it did previous to the republican convention. The Union has enough difficulty in reporting a convention intelligently without an ticipating what it will do. It is really too bad that the Union em braces every oportunity of making useii ridiculous. Women's Weapon. In "Kins Losr," Shakespeare t peaks of team as-women b weapons."

R. and Kindred brftTaaUatloas Attend in a Body Strange Coamparl-j son Blade by the Speaker-Drift of the Dfeeon.no. The First M. E. chnrch was taste fully decorated with flags and pic tures yesterday morning, and the G. A. K.. U. V. U., W. R. C, S. O. V.. L. A. S., Rodman Rifles and Boys' Bri gade attended the annual Memorial services. The subject of Rev. Mer roll s address was: "Memorial Day and Its Lessons." His text was Ex. 12:14: nd tlila day shall be unro you for a memorial, (1 lc shall kep it a fe t to the Lord throng h o:it your generation. e sh:ll keep 1'. a ttast by an ordinance forever." The next text was Luke 22:19: "3 liis do In remembrance of mc." Memonjal Days or All Nations. 'All nations." said Mr. Mcrrcll, have had their memorial days on which thev have celebrated their great historical crisis." He then traced the various biblical and his torical feasts of this character down to the present day. America, he said, has two Memorial days; July 4 and May 30. The first commemor ates the birth of the nation, and is given up to noise, the booming of cannon and the snapping of firecrack ers. Ibe second has been conse crated to serious and solemn obser vances. On the Sabbath preceding ueeoration uay veterans oi tlie union aiv accustomed to present them selves in the house of God for divine worship, where lessons of freedom arc dwelt upon. It is-fitting thus to kep green the memory of the awful and jrlorious davs." Incomprehensible Scenes of War. He spoke of the present generation as not being able to comprehend the awiui scenes oi the civil war, nd mentioned the names of Grant, Sher idan, Sheridan, Lojran and Lincoln as the greatest on earth. A Very Strange Comparison. Ho spoke of the enemies, with which. Americans were' forced to ccn tern! today, as being three in mini dit. Jesuits, the masses of foreign- en;. who emigrate to this country, and the saloons. He said: "We would not exult as though we fool i(-hiy fancied that all the victories of frei dom were won and all the steps taker, in the onward steps to liberty God forbid that I should hear utter one word to mar the spirit of this hour or to contradict the spirit of cuarity wnicn our noly religion rep resents, but let ns remember that there is a foe in our midst that seems nev. r to slumber or to sleep, a foe mat is ever plotting against human liberty and that has triumphed over nuiuy tanas, whose serpent trail liuiy be traced today over the Iain's of sunny Italy, fair Spain and the rich lands of Mexico and South America and portions of our own lovea land. 1 refer not to the Catholic church, but to the Jesuits. Many nations, far behind our own in lrcedom, and many Catholic conn trios, have found it necessary to nanisn them Irom their borders. America is called today the paradise oi ,K-suits. it is marvelous how,that after thev had surrounded the civili- ZMt'on on the Mayflower, on the sof.ih, the north and the west, how God seemed to restrain them in their di. i;gns, and permitted this one great country to De the abode of free insti tut- ns. And think not they have become untrue to their vows. " Closlne; (.reeting;. Iu conclusion, Mr. Merrell greeted the veterans of the G. A. R. and the kin '.ired organizations present, and me principle lor which they stand 'Friendship, charity and lovalty' mig'ut prevail more and more, and tnat as individuals, they might have eyp-rience wherewith Christ makes free, and lie not entangled with any yoke oi uonaage.
