To the end however, that nothing may be left undone in the entertainment of the city's guests, a meeting of the Business Men's association was held at the office of the Mississippi Valley Mutual Insurance company at 8 o'clock this af ternoon, when arrangements were made for the reception of the visitors.

A Cirem Collision- At 3 o'clock yesterday morning the sec ond section of Forepiiugh's Circus train ran into the rear end of tbe first section which was standing on the track at Eddys ville, Iowa, about sixteen miles from Ol- tumwa. Dr. Peck, chief surgeon of the Rock Islaud railway, left at 2 o'clock yet terday afternoon on a special train for the scene of the accident to render surs gical aid. The following is a correct list of the wounded with the nature of tlieir injuries: Joe Copps, no home; slight contusion on tbe chest. Louis Hotter, of St. Louis, contusion on right arm. Frank Boyd, of Philadelphia, bruises on left arm and thigh. Frank Holland, of Detroit, Mich., col lar bone broken. Frank Baker, of New York, contusion left shoulder. August Schmidt, of Belleville, 111., con fusion on chest. Michael Welsh, of Philadelphia, bruise on right side of bead. Louis Leganders, of Three Rivers.Can ada, bruise on left leg. Sidney Joessin, of Brooklyn, N. Y., se vcre bruise on hand. Alf Peters, slight cut on scalp. W. Smith, slight cut on band. R. Connelly, slight cut on ankle. Telegrams received by the railway management state the wounds are slight and that none are thought to be danger ous by the surgeons. All the wounded mentioned above, with the exception of four or five, arrived in Davenport at an early hour this morning on a special train and were removed to Mercy hospital for treatment. The men injured occupied the last sleeper on the first section, and are all laborers. One sleeping car was par tially demolished and the damages to the engine will amount to between $300 and $400. None of the animals were in jured. Said a well known passenger conductor on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific road this morning, "it's a wonder there are not more accidents to circus trains than there are. The cars are hardly ever repaired, 'and many of the brakes are taken off in order to load heavy cages and wagons. The railroad companies should compel the showmen to keep their cars in first class condition, as a precau- tiod for safety and expense to all parties concerned." Biver Biploti- Tbe elegant Sidney is expected down tomorrow morning. The flying War Eagle passed up today.

The musical examination of Mrs, Swan's graduates, Blanche Harrington and May Fischer, took place In the con servatory of music in tbe institute build ing, on Friday evening of last week. It was attended by a limited number of in vited guests. The examination proved two things to the satisfaction of every body present: that Mrs. Swan is a thor ough and conscientious teacher, and that tbe young ladies who ran the gauntlet of her rigid examination on that evening are thoroughly well versed in matters musis cal. In fact a pair of more thoroughly competent young lady musicians it would be difficult to discover. They are natural musicians to begin with. Music is as natural to them as to the bird, who sings because he cannot choose but siag. Added to this is the polish, the culture of Mrs. Swan's course ot musical instruction. The examination in this instance was rigid and thorough, and the young ladies acquitted themselves in a manner to do them credit. We understand that Miss Harrington will shortly engage in teacb ing in Kearney, Neb. Should this be true, we congratulate the good people of Kearney in advavce on the prospect of having in their midst one so thoroughly competent to teach music as Miss Hars rington, as well as one who will prove an ornament to the best society of the city, Gtrmeo Newt.
