It is gratifying to note the spirit of
mutual friendliness and good fetling in

gathering of reDre entative men of

Talk about neighborly feeling.
If Davenport could have viewed the
jint assemblage of the business men of
the two cities on this s'do of the river in
the spacious Harper hoiife banquet room
last evening, she would have been
forced to the conclusion that the days of
disunion and unharmonioux action, of
yawning gulfs and short-sighted rivalry,
so long characteristic of Moliue and Rock
Island, are fast drawing to close; that the
old d'ff'-rences are fast heins buried and
that a new and praiseworthy sentiment
of unity of aim is takintj their place. We

Altogether the gathering; was
without precedent in the history of the

The Dispatch refers to the joint meet
ing in this manner:
Moline Business association members
to the number of 64 responded last
evening to the invitation of the Rock Isl
and association to a joint meeting and
banquet at the Harper house. They as
semtiled tt the association headquarters ia
Moline and murched in double file to a
special train of street cars in waiting at
Fifteenth street on the Union line, which
special train had been tendered gratis by
Manager LwderMpk . Arriving at the
Harper, the Moline men were warmly
greeted by the Rock Island reception
committee and members of the Rock Isl
and association. The banquet
was announced in due time, alter the
scioa ef har.rUhakinsrs and creetir.at,
and to this about 150 sit down. The
opening prayer was by Rev J. Jesoer
sod, of Augustana college. Ample jus
tice was done by all to the good things
provided, and after the eatables came the
smokables. and bowllesj pipes of peace
were soon sending up wreaths of smoke .
The meeting wbich followed was one of
the most remarkable gatherings of Rock
Island and Moline men ever held in the
history of the two cities. Instead of an
tagonism, there seemed to be nothing
but brotherly love and a determination
to unite in pushing the interests of these
two cities and the whole locality.
