I be meeting of the Labor day com
ruittees last night at Hillier'a hall was
more . largely attended than any of the
previous ones, and the reports that were
brought in from the different committees
having the celebration in charge were
gratifying in the extreme. The ground
ana amusement committees reported
having arranged for a good programme
of special exercises On the grounds where
good order will be maintained and every
thing conducted so that all cau enjoy
pleasant day. The grounds are roomy
and include a base ball diamond where
good game will take place. They can
be reached either from Fifth or Seventh
avenues, and are of easy access.
The parade will undoubtedly be the
largest and most elaborate ever given
in Rock Island. Business houses
and factories all over the three cities have
gotten up 11 jAts and some have two or
three which wiifswell the parade. At
least 3.000 uuioa men from the three
cities wil' be in line, and as invitations
have been extended to all the civic soci
eiies of the different towns to take part
it ia hoped that many of these will re
spond. A request has also been made
to theowoers of factories,etc,,to suspend
work for the day iu accordance with the
mayor's proel&niiiion, and it is believed
that it will generally be done. The com
mi nee is debirous cf having everything
in the parade move as smoothly as possi
ble,and for lhi3 reason it is desirable that
ttaoae having fl mts, and also all organiz
aiions wu: be on nana as promptly as
passible, as the parade will be of each
proportions tbat it will not be easily

picioub eltliratioDS in this vicinity, but
it is purposed to maKe this the grandest

to the end that everything will run

A few days ago a newspaper reporter
asked President C. E Perkins, of the C,
B. & Q , if there was any probability of
the railroads agreeing on a passenger
rate of one cent a mile to the world's

they are not going to cause their systems
to commit suicide."
Following the tactics of an ancient

raphers. in the case of the B., C. R &

Cedar Rapids dispatch says that it is the
last that will be heard of it for some

was a severe blow to the employers' in

him. About 80 men have been in his
charge since the work on the house be
gan last spring, and the feeling between.
them has been bo harmonious that the

Labor day, and accordingly a handsome

The tteneral Opinion In Knek la land
That Sullivan. Slyer sad U.xon
Will Betiic Victors.
It is not in every pugilistic encounter
that people of all classes become inter
ested and talk of the respective merits of
the contestants, but in the three engage
ments that will take place in the prize
ring at New Orleans next week probably
more widespread interest is taken tban
in any other events of a similar nature
that have ever taken place. Not alone
is this discussion confined to those who
take an interest in all kinds of sporting
events, but men who usually look upon
the prize ring as something not to be ad
mired, are found eagerly discussing the
probable outcome of these encounters.
Within 48 hours after the evening of
Monday, Sept. 5 three of the greatest
fights ever contested in a prize ring will
be fought and three men out of six will
be decided the champions of their re
spective divisions. The purses and
side wagers aggregte $35 500 an
amount far in excess of any
previously hung up. The battles will be
fought under the most favorable condi
tions, insuring a fair and proper adjust
ment of all claims of the contestants, and
will be witnessed by Beyer al from Rock
Island and vicinity.
Myer and McAuliffe light weights,
will meet on Monday night, Sept. 5th.
and the winner will take with tint $20,-000.
On Tuesday night following George
Dixon and Jack Skelly, feather weights
will meet, and to the victor wiil go $17,
500 in purse and side bets.
Wednesday the nis;bt following will
witness the great- st bif.lrf of all John
L. Sullivan and James J. Corbett. heavy
weights, will decide the championship of
the world, und the ownership of a 25,
000 purse and side stakes of $20 000
the largest sum of money "iu the clear"
ever dependent upon the decision of a
referee in a prize ring.
In order to gain some knowledge of
what the general impression is in Rock Isl
and as to the outcome of the fights, an
Abocs reporter interviewed over 60 per
sons, and out of that number over 40
look upon Sullivan as the winner, though
a majority concede tbat it will be djne
before 25 rounds re fought. In the
Myer- McAuliffe fight the odds seem to
be in favor of Myer. the prevailing
opinion being tbat it will be the longest
of the three many even venturing that
it will equal the Sullivan-Ki'rain fight in
number of rounds. Of the Dixon-Skelly
mill less seems to be known by the pub
lic, many declining to even express an
opinion as to its outcome. Of those who
have given their opinion, however, the
majority is decidedly in favor of the col
ored lad, which is probably due to the
fact that he is better known, Skiliy being
considered a novice.
