THE CYCLING CLUB.
The New Twin City Organization
Rock Island And Slollne Wheelmen
Make an Important Move
Sport And Morlablllty to
The meeting held at Keller & Walker'8
office in Moline last night for the purpose
of organizing a Twin City Cycling club
was well attended, and a mutual good
feeling existed between the wheelmen of
the two towns. After talking oyer the
matter it was decided to organize at once
and accordingly a permanent organization
was effected. The following being the
President E. H. Sleieht.
Vice-President Paul Ramser.
Secretary and Treasurer Paul Keller.
Captain Will Ramser.
First Lieutenant W. Ammerman.
Second Lieutenant J. J. Flynn.
The club starts out with very
encouraging prospects, a mem
bership of 50 having already been se
cured and a large number of other wheel
men have signified their intention of
joining the club. It is expected that
every wheelman inboth cities will become
a member, and the result will be a cyclii g
club that will be second to none in this
section, and besides be a credit to the
cities it represents. The want of an
association of this kind ha9 been felt
among owners of wheels here for some
time, and now that It has been formed
every effort should be made to not only
maintain it, but make the club one of the
finest of its kind.
With several miles of well paved streets
an excellent opportunity for evening pa
rades is presented, which will in all prob
ability be taken advantage of by the rew
c'ub. No three towns are more
conveniently situated or offer better
cotrses for straightaway riding aud a
well drilled cycling club would be looked
upon no doubt with considerable pride
by citizens of both towns. Then again
the opportunities offered for providing a
clubhouse on the Columbian grounds,
which is midway between the cities, and
where no doubt a fine track will be estab
lished, are very good. The Twin Cities
are fast coouing to the front in every
respect, and there ia no reason why a
club of this kind should not be among at
tractive features of the thriving towns. It
must be remembered, too, that there are
also a large number of lady cyclers in
both towns, and a lady's division would
undoubtedly be looked upon with much
favor by those of that sex who delight in
a spin on the wheel, so that some ar
rangement ought to be made to add still
more grace and beauty to the club.
Trouble In.iue Tribe.
Much apprehension was caused last
night when it was whispered about that
the chiefs and braves of Tippecanoe
Tribe of the Liberal Republican reserva
tion were holding a council fire over the
misconduct of one of thetr warriors on
the previous night. It was known that
Crowfoot Cary had for some reason failed
to take his part in the solemn council,
and the spirit had moved the Big Cbiet to
think that he had intentionally lost the
trail and that his absencewas premeditated.
Hince Young- Man-Not-Afraid-of His
Whiakers had been sent out to investigate
and he brought in the startling intelligence
that, yes Crowfoot had intentional
ly deserted. Now in the Lib
eral Reservation every man is
obliged to give a satisfactory account of
himself, aud hence the tortures to which
poor Crowfoot was subjected at the hands
of Big Chief and others may be better
imaeined than told. Suffice 1b it to say that
Big Medicine Man put in the night with him
applying the oil of stamina to bring about
restoration. At last Crowfoot swore by
the big horn spoon that hereafter he
would not desert the tribe at a critical
moment.and with a promise to discharge
other duties equally essential to the fos
tering of the tribe, he was permitted to
go to his wigwam.
But there will be a reckoning after to
morrow night's ghost dance, if any of
those summoned to appear before the
tribe fail to do so.

writes The Arous, enclosing his sub

When I first took that paper I was a res

I have never left my subscription expire,

This is but a sample of the numerous

THE TURNER CONTESTS
The Recent Tnrafest at llaboqa., is
Tola by tbe Papers or That City.
The Dubuque Herald, in its reference
to the recent turn f est in that city, and
which the Rock Island and Davenport
Turners participated in, says:
An immense crowd had gathered at the
park. It is estimated that during the
afternoon fully 7.000 had come and gone.
In fact, the crowd was so large that com
fort was out of the question in the 2
acre enclosure. Tbe street cars were
incapable of handling the crowd.
The competitions between the lady
Turner classes were decidedly interesting.
Davenport entered a class of 20 ladies,
wno gave an excellent exhibition of the
wand exercise and club swinging.
The Rock Island lady Turners, num
bering 14. gave an exhibition of march
ing, combined with the wand exercise.
. During the afternoou concerts were
given by Strasser's band of Davenport,
Bleuer's band of Rock Island and the
Cornet band of this city.
Sunday evening at Turner hall a large
audience was assembled to hear the prize
singing. The efforts of the several soci
eties entered in tbe competition were di
rected to the rendition of one song, "Die
The judges. Prof. Strassser of Daven
port, and Dr. Minges and Chas, Sass, of
Dubuque, were stationed in a place of
concealment, and the different societies
were announced by number, so that tbe
judges while making their markings were
unaware of which society was singing.
The competing societies were tbe North
west Davenport, Clinton, Des Moines,
Dubuque, Davenport and Rock Island.
After tne prize singing each society ren
dered a Bong of its own selection. Prof.
Strasser's Davenport band opened the
exercises with an excellently rendered
overture which elicited deafening ap
plause. There was much cheering, such as only
a German crowd can Indulge in, as tbe
presentation of prizes progressed. The
Rock Is'and lady Turners were erven first
prize, Davenport second, and Burlington
In class turning Davenport carried off
first honors, Des Moinessecond, Dubuque
third. Northwest D-iVonport fourth. Bur

In individual turning William Siemson,

of Davenport, won fir9t, second, third acd
fourth honors, respectively. Ban Scherr.
of this city getting fifth mention.
In singing the Davenport society was
awarded first honors. Rock Island second
and Clinton third.
It is said that the Dubuque Turners
feel they were not fairly treated in the
class-turning contest, and tbat they have
declined to accept third honors.
The Davenport turners on their return
from Dubuque, came in ovcr the Mil
waukee last night and were met here by a
delegation with a band and escorted over
home where a reception was given them.

Several complaints have been made to
day of the running of a car on tbe Elm
street line last night with rid lights, and
the using of a yellow car today. Doubt
less one of the regular greens was disabled ,
but if there is not an extra about, the
cars temporarily used should be mote
plainly designated by signs. Otherwise
the practice of deviating from the regu
lar colors of cars is misleading, causing
mucn inconvenience to tue public and a
loss to the company.
The Davenport council by unanimous
yote last evening granted the Davenport

an ordinance changing one of its loop
