P. Simpson, of Rock Island, secretary. The possibilities of establishing sach a system as is desired, the unap proachable advantages common to the community and the opportunities which are offered by law for pro ceeding in the accomplishment of the end, were all di&cussed at length, and the following resolutions presented by C. H. Pope were adopted : Wnereas, A movement has been started to organize the Twin-City Pleasure Driveway and Park Disttict oi nock island county and Whereas, The organization of the prcposeu district anu the improve ment oi driveways ana parks therein would give employment to many of the taxpayers and citizens of this locality, and Whereas The said improvements would largely enhance the values of property within its said limits and thereby add materially to the wealth oi our citizens, and Whereas, The said development would great. y magnify the im portance and attractiveness of this center and draw to onr boundaries added population and thereby in crease our prosperity, and Whereas, There exists at this point an unparalleled opportunity to 4e velop a driveway and park system that will be commensurate with the national importance of the locality and that will stand unrivaled in the central United Mates, and Whereas, The full benefits of raid improvements can only be secured to the taxptvt rs of the jr 'pueed pre cinct by a perfectly fair and impartial administration of the afftirs of said disliict and by the ab solute divorce ment of its cilices r m the influences of all political partiex. and Wherens. Its desirable to provide the interested voters and taxpayers with assurance that the Safest! of said park district shall be admini--tered and the benefits distributed equitably and impartially a between the several townships embraced in said 1 proposed district, therefore be it Resolved, By the undersigned, a joint committee from R-jck Island and Moline: 1st.

The area planned embraces ; square miles, and representing a population of 60.000 people, with an 000.000. The plan is to include a svstem of boulevards and parka, the central park to be directly on the line between the two cities, and in the vicinity of Eighteenth avenne.

Big llulldlor Tear la Reek Inland Dasplta Dan Ttmrs. The year 1896 will go down into history as the most prosperous that Rock Island has known in the build ing line, and this despite tbe dull times that have prevailed all over the country. A million dollars will not represent the aggregate which has gone into improvements of a general and public nature in the way of new homes and business blocks. The new Rock Island bridge, built at a cost of S190.O00. heads the list of local improvements. In its glory Davenport shares. In Rock Island the new court house comes first among the more notable struc tures, costing $125,000; then comes the Rock Island postoflice building at a cost of $45,000, the German Lutheran and Christian Memorial churches. cosing 50,000 and other buildings, such as the Turner hall, etc.. represent in the outlay in the aggregate of S300.000. The municipality invested less in substantial public improvements than in any other year in its history. To be sure it undertook the construc tion of a 20.000 storm drain, but so far it seems to have gotten the worst end of it. WEDDING BELL8 RING. Hrla B. Ma teal f a I Mlw Lonlaa A.

With AT TTJIVEI HALL. a tha Mat aad Clever Week. Mat Rh Taw H. lentil. r far Bbav Ed. J. Atherton. ef Cuba. New Tork. won his match with John Voaa. Of this citV. at Tnrner hall laat night. Tbe agreement was that Atherton throw his opponent three times in an hour, catch -aa-calca-cen. i:vinz and rowing falls allowed. Tha Cuban took the first fall in 14 min ute, tbe second in 4 and the laat in 5:20. The match was witnessed bv nuite a large crowd, thesportinir fraternity of the three cities boinir weli renre- sented. and proved an interesting and at times an exciting event. Jack Kivlin. of Davenport, was chosen referee, and Jack Cswden and Billy Cattoi.. of thin city, officiated as timekeepers. Bi ly Lambert, of Iowa City, and liavsMub?. of Devennort. were in Voss' corner, and Jim Mc Coy, of Burlington, was Atherton's second. The event was without mush excitement until heferee Kiv lin announced his decision on the second fall, friends of the local man objecting and demanding a new ref eree, charging that it wasn't a square deal. Threats were made and it appeared as though a knock down and drag-out would be the next thing c n the program, bnt a pescefnl cloud aoon drifted oyer the audience, and the wiestlera went at it again. The event of the evening was pre ceded by a three round catch-as-catch-cau bout between Cordt Voaa and Henry Schaft, tbe former taking the three falls. Prlneiaaaei It. Then Billy tiibson. who was mas ter if ceremonies, introduced Voee and Atherton. both of whoa ap pealed in excellent condition. Atherton rushed his opponent from the outset, only pausing at intervals to study tbe situation and play for wind. Yosdid tome hard and clever work, but it was a ease, pure aad simple, of bis not being equal to bis oppo ent scientifically. Atherton is aIo quick and wiry. Voas sus tained a bloody noe in the (Let bout, through an accident, and for which Atherton ap'ilogiced Ather ton won tbe liisl two falls on a lag hold anil hair . Is n. while tbe rrntrhb.i-k half-back, hammer at.d ha f Neison w-r used to bring Voss1 -im ulder on the mat the final bout. The first two were flying falle, and the last a pin fall. At tbe conclusion of tbe match Atberton said that he had come here a stranger, and allowed the friends of bis opponent to pick tbe referee and if he got the heist of it, it was his good lock, but he nevertheless con- t-idered it a good square match, and complimented Voas as a gentleman and a wrestler. Atberton then cbnl- leoea rarmer nurns, who failed to show up as promised, for any h " u d t uf money he rou)d pnt up. but ne wanted to bear from htm at once. A Batch With Haras. Atherton is now eager to meet Farmer Barns, whose manager, Billy (ibsoo, is drawing up papers with the Cuban this afternoon, and the match probably will take place eatlv next week. oss came to Tna Aie tits ofli-e this morning in bopea of arranging for another handicap mat'-h aith Atberton. but the lalU-r says he is looking for Burns now, and this settled, he may accomtnt- date the man whom ha defeated last night for another turn Room at the Top.
