Rock Island, lug. 24. Tbe resolu
tion of tbe city 'jouncil to finish Union
square has elevated tbe present council in
tbe estimation of tbe people and proves
tbat it is composed of men who bave de
termined to abandon old wars and try a
more finished aid progressive course.
At tbe close of tbis year- Franklin square
and Union square will be in a condition
tbat will justify tbe city authorities to
give their special attention, that the peo
ple may enjoy th m and obtain the bene
fit that it was intt nded the people should
derive. Not only do we want to take care
of the parks we 1 ave, but we want to se
cure more. In tut future additions to tbis
city this feature can be secured. It fs as
tbe Abous suggested Saturday night, tbe
power of tbe ciiy council to demand
that some provision in Ibis regard
should be made for tbe public, wbec
the author auks the authorities to
accept bis plans. Tbe plat of all ad
ditions murt be approved by the city
council; when those plats are presented
for approval then is the time for the au
thorities to secure the future parks of the
city. Tbe plat t bee approved, it is too
The time bas now come when tbe city
council should svlect some competent
person as park commissioner. Tbe gen
eral law allows thi; council to provide for
such an officer. It would be belter for
tbe city to dispense entirely with its pub
lic squares if tbey are to be allowed to
continue in tbe condition as they bave in
tbe past. A slovenly park indicates a
slovenly people, for when a stranger
looks at the publi: places of a city and
finds tbem weedy, rough and dirty, be
naturally concludes that such places in
dicate the tun tea of tbe people. For the
future we want our parka kept neat,
and to accomplsh this ' they ought
to be placed in tin bands of a man of
good taste a man that never keeps his
own premises neat is not the man to keep
tbe parks in good order. There are in
tbis city today citizens who will assume
tbe duties of park commissioner without
pay, men who would be pleased to aid
tbe city in tbis retard.
Tbe court bouse square is a credit to
Sheriff Silvia and for his care and tbe
good taste displayed in keeping the
square in good O'-der be bas received
many compliments . Let tbe council se
lect a park commisioner for each square,
whose duty it shall be to superintend and
direct all that is to be done to keep tbem
in order. Any gei.tleman who is willing
to assume such a t uty the public may
rest assured it duty will be per
formed with credit to himself and the
city, but in maklni: such selection let it
be a person who knows bow a public
park should be kept. Public Pridk

If, Saturday's game is to be taken as a
criterion of the ki id of ball Davenport
expects to put up for the remainder of
the season, tbe other clubs in tbe Central
Interstate league n.ight just as well com
mence battling f r second place, for
Davenport has a firm bold on tbe pen
nant. Wherever "be team was weak it
bas been strengths acd, and tbe members
play with a vim and vigor that wins
games. And as 1( ng as the captain of
the Peoria team continues in his endeavor
to raise the price of liquid refreshments in
Peoria by reducing tbe stock, be cannot
expect to play bi.ll himself nor to get
good work out o! those in the team
who need anything besides common sense
to make them play good ball. If Fisber
bad not started tbe game with a clean
home run bit in the brat inning after two
balls bad been calltd on him, the home
team would bave been abut out After tbat
tbey succeeded oocs or twice in getting
men as far as third, but the bit to bring
tbem in was wanting, aud eiirht goose
eggs were placed to their credit. Fan
ning pitched an ex client game and his
support was practit ally faultless. On the
other hand, Bartson was bit quite freely
from tbe very start Peoria Herald.
Our esteemed Peoria contemporary
seems to bave sized up tbe situation pret

to 1 in Davenport's favor and Yesterday's

tirely out of the wonda, nor will they be
as long aa such formidable rivals as
Springfield and Peoria exist, but there
seems to be pretty food ground for hope
for our neighbor.

Mr. E. Toininosian, a native of Syria,
who is perfecting himself for the Metho
dist ministry, delivered an exceedingly
interesting and tbongbtful address at
Harper's theatre yesterday morning. It
was rather of the nature of a descriptive
sermon, the entertaining speaker begin
ning with an eloquent description of the

and tbe constancy and faith of
tbe Mohammedans. He supplemented
bis remarks by exhibiting some of the
spoons and othor wares of the Syrians,
their peculiar mode of dress, etc. Speak
ing of hi mself he stated that he had al
ways been in a christian atmosphere,
that a business misfortun e on the part of
his father threw him upon his own re
sources at an early age, and tbat he
worked his way to tbis country, arriving
here in entire ignorance of tbe English
language. His parents came from a line
of ancestry that bad always lived in Syr
ia, and his remote ancestors might bave
dined with St. Paul, and St. Luke might
have been the family physician. His
parents still exist, and are firm in the
Protestant faith which be represeuts. lie
