Rock Island Had a Metropolitan Appear
ance Teaterday.
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
The Coal Supply.
The Moline Dispatch has gathered
the following information as to the
coal supply and the manufacturers
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.

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

as the greatest on earth.
