Last night's meeting of the soliciting
committees of the Twin-City Columbian
project at tfae rooms of the Rock Inland
Citizens' Improvement atsnciatlon was
well attended by erergotic members of
the committee. The-e was an extended
and earnest discussion of the. plans and
purposes of the expjs'uion. n suiting in
the adoption of a rt solution requesting
President Jackson, of the Improvement
association, to invite Dr. C. T. Lindley,
of Davenport. to address the
Improvement association at the
next regular meeting on the
subject of making fine art an im
portant feature of the exhibition. Dr.
Lindley has taken a great interest in the
subject of fine arts and would be a
splendid man to p it at the head of this
important dcpartmei.t in connection with
Upon Capt. B.-arddej's motion a reso
lution was adopted declaring it to be the'
sense of the committee that a meeting of
the Twin-City committee af 21 be called to
devise plans for the arrangement of the
grounds , buildings, etc., and upon the
suggestion of Willia n Jackson the chair
man of the soliciting committee was in
structed to appoiat a committee of
five with the recommendation that the
Moline soliciting committee delegate a
like committee to mtke a systematic can
vass of the county for stock subscrip
tions. This mort.ing Chairman -Guyer
upon consultation with other memoirs of
the committee thoi ght best to make the
Rock Island committee seven and the
following were nam ;d: M. M. Sturgeon,
R. A. Donaldson, William McEniry.Wal
tcr Johnson, Fred Hits, Henry Carse and
T. S. Silvia. Mr. Sturpeon. who is
cbaiiman, has called a meeting at his
ofllce this evening to outline a plan of
There remains but a little over a
I month in which to stve the option money.
All those who made pledges to the option
at the Moline bacquet with one excep
tion have honored that drift for the
amount they voucl ed for, and that one
must be accredited to Rock Island.
Spesking of the enterprise today L. 8
McCabe said: "Tae undertaking is a
greater one perhaps than all the people
realize. I have considered it so from the
first, and taking tt at view I have fully
considered how gnat will be the result.
It is such a project as must not be al
lowed to fail. The ends in view are of
too much importance, the acquirement of
this valuable land for this purpose Is of
so much concern to us all that the oppor
tunity must not be allowed to pass.
Rather than see ths project fail now I
am willing to double my subscription of
1500 to stock in the association, and
I believe there are many others
wholwould da the same. In fdet
I have felt a desi c to take more stock
from the first, but I have considered that
it was the aim and purpose that the
stock should be as widely distributed
among the small share holders as possible.
It would be better to have it S3, unques
tionably, but the Columbian must go
through, and if doubling up stock is ne
cessary count me in." And Mr. McCabe
voices the public spirit which is showed
by others whom TnE Annus has heard
of. Rock Island vs ill get its 950,000 all
right, for all the people of the city are
interested in it. It is the people's pro
ject and must win.

Lovers of the country and country life
will be given an opportunity for enjoy

Fair" at the theatre nrxt Monday, and
there is every reason to believe that there
will be a large attendance, for the comedy

action is laid in New England, and the
characters are described as true to the
