Faaadera Day at the First Baptist Mr. Allaa at tba Central. Yesterday was observed at the First Baptist church as B.Y. P. U. A. Founders Day. There were three mottoes hung in the church two for outlining the Christian Culture course for the Senior and Junior unions and one containing the scrip ture sentiment of the day. In the morning the pastor spoke on the ne cessity of caring for the conversion and Christianizing of the young and drew a vivid picture of the church 30 years hence and its Tarid forms of work. In the evening the Young People's union conducted the service, Carlton G. Taylar, the president, taking charge. B. H. Wilson ex tended words of greeting. A paper outlining the aim of the union, pre pared by Miss Blanch Emery, was read by Wm. J. Taylor. The Junior union gave an exercise showing the nature of its work. The pastor called attention to the unification of the Baptist voung peo ple. There are over 3,600,000 Bap tists in America and they have organized an average of three new churches for every day in the year for the past ten years. There are nearly a million young in their churches. The B. Y. P. U. is seek ing to unify, instruct and train in scriptural 'truth and stimulate in Christian zeal and service this great nosi 01 young unristians. At the Central.

Under the city ordinance the mu nicipal year commences on the first Monday in May, and this is the ex planation of the month's lapse that has in recent years intervened be. tween the city election and the in. dnction into office of the incoming administration. There have been many inquiries as to why the plan in vogue in Rock Island is so differ. ent from that adhered to in other cities; Chicago, for instance, install ing its officers-elect in two weeks at the most from the time of their elec tion. In former years Rock Island did likewise, bnt the present plan has been in practice since tbe inaug uration of Mayor V. M. Blanding in 1887. Up to that time the officers had assumed their duties with the beginning of the fiscal year which is the third Monday in April, but Mr. Blanding followed more closely the letter of the law, his predecessor Mayor Mnrdock serving a few weeks over two years, and since then it has been necessary to await the first meeting in May to permit the retir ing mayor to serve out his full years term. A Cbaace Proposed. The long delay between the elec tion and the time of assuming con trol of government is deemed by many impracticable, and a change in tbe ordinances is likely to be pro posed, when the new council takes its seat. Mayor Knox, in conversa tion with an Akgus representative. stated that he would propose it. It will take a few weeks off my term, he said, "but it is neverthe less right and should be adopted. This thing of a month's siege with applicants for office is considerable of a strain on the mavor-elect, and it might as well be settled in a few days as a few weeks. The quicker an end is put to the suspense tbe bet ter for the mayor and tbe applicants for ollice. 1 favor shall tbe munici pal year beginning tbe first Monday after election. This will serve bet ter ends in all respects. Those who are candidates will know what to ex nect and so will those whose services are to be discontinned, and there will be no possibility for the citv be. ing the sufferer through possible in difference on tbe part of tbose who know that their services are to be discontinued."
