Messrs. Van Sant and Fitzpel-

points along the R. I. & P. road on
that day have gotten out a very at
tractive souvenir of Kock Island,
which is referred to as a city of
20,000 population, being the lumber
metropolis of the Mississippi valley,
as well as being to the front of the
manufacturing communities of the
west. The city is alluded to as one
whose history is full of supreme in
terest. The fact that the lirst bridge
spanning the Mississippi was built
here, the first railroad reached the
river here, and the first locomotive,
the lirst gas plant, tirst street rail
way, and lirst waterworks in the
state outside of Chicago are all cred
ited to Kock Island. The many
points of genetal interest, etc.. are

allow the representatives an oppor

a train in the evening, and were in
session for a number of hours. The
affairs of the association were thor
oughly canvassed, and everything
was found to be in perfectly

mainly a love feast in which the

Every team will remain to the end
of the season. A few changes were
made in the schedule. There will be
races at Quincy the first week in

The qnestion of the tax levy for the
year was taken up and the recom
mendation of the linance committee
making the amount f78.0') was
adopted. Of this amount, under the
law, 1 13,000 is specilied for general
purposes, and 35,000 for building.
In this connection a comparison
with the levies made in previous
years will furnish interesting read
ing. Ten years ago the school levy
never exceeded $23,000 to f.'W.OOO.
It is conceded, of course, that the
improvements in school buildings
the past few years is accountable
largely for this increase.
However, the figures which are ap
pended will be read with interest:
