Mitunlay arternoon the Western
asHociation league season oncnnl in
Rock Island with l)es Moines for op.
Knent. Early in the afternoon car
riages containing the local base ball
management, Hlcuer's band and the
ucs Aiotnes and Kock Island clubs,
paraded the streets of Rock- fsUn.i'
Moline and Davenport, and at 3
o'clock ronnded np at Twin-Citv ball
park. At 3:30 about 700 people ?at
in tne grana stand and bleachers,
and saw Rock Island take the game.
The game opened with Rock Island
at the bat, and little Danny Sweencv
came waddling up to the plate and
was sent to first on balls. Cantillion
was next np and his neat single ad
vanced Sweeney to third. Then it
was that Joe Katz strolled up to the
rubber with a stick, full of base hits.
There was no affectation on the left
fielder's part: he just settled himself
and the lirst ball that was thrown to
him met with a piece of ash in Joe's
hand and away it sailed over the
right field fence for two bases, there
by causing Sweeney to trot home
and Cautilliou to go to third. Bcldon
Hill next appeared, and tho old boy
is tuil of knots. Maytum slammed
up a swift "inshoot," but lielldune"
never moved, and in consequence he
trotted down to first, hit bv a pitched
ball, "rutty" Zeis came p and
punched out a single, and in trotted
Joe Cantillion. With the bases full,
Jimmy" Connors wandered up to
the plate and was awarded a base on
balls, forcing in Katz. Harry
Sage was sent to first in
tho same manner, and Hill was
forced in. Just aliout this time
Jones was taken from behind the bat
for Des Moines and put on lirst, and
Graner was substituted. Lynch hit
down to the third and Zeis was
thrown out at the plate. Andrews
placed a high fly in right field and
was out, but Connors came home on
the hit. Sweeney came to the bat
for the second time in the inning and
fouled out. Des Moines did nothing
in this half. In the second Rock Isl
and scored one on Cantinion's fum
bled hit to Kipp, (iraner's wild throw
and Parter's muff of Katz' fly.
For Des Moines, 11 t one got to the
The third was another 5-score
inning for Rock Island. Jay An
drews smote the pig skin an awful
swipe, and it went away up in the air
and dropped in front of the plate, and
iu the meantime the young Dr."
was scudding away down tho second
base line. Sweeney's hit away out
in center brought Jay home, and
Cantillion put it over the right field
fence for two bases, and, ditto Katz.
Hill went to first on a "cake walk"
and Zeis swiped it down the third
base line, and in came Katz, and Hill
went to third. He scored a miuutc
later on Connors' out on a fly.
Sweeney opened the fourth with
a home run, Cantillion flew
out iu left, and Joe Katz
followed with a smash over the same
spot that Sweeney had found. Hill
went to first by icing hit with the
ball and was put out trying to steal
second. Zeis struck out. Des Moines
in its half scored its first run.
Rock Island rolled up four goose eggs
in tuc next lour innings ana ics
Moines got one score in the
lifth and throe in the sixth,
but that was all it made.
Rock Island scored two in
its half of the ninth, and the game
stood 15 to 5. The score is appended:

Yesterday fully 1,600 people saw
Rock Island defeat the Des Moines
tor the second time. The game
opened with Kock Island at the bat.
Sweeney got a base on balls, and Can
tillion's hit and Jones' error advanced
him to third. Katz, the mighty.
trotted up to the plate, and with a
look of the most Intense fierceness.
he slammed the sphere over the right
field fence for a home run. Sweeney
and Cantillion came home as a conse
quence. Hill got his base on balls
and stole second, Zeis flew out
at short, and Connors, Sage
and Lynch were awarded bases
of four bad balls each. Hill was
thereby . forced in, and , Son if r,
the silent," hit down to short and
Kipp tossed the ball to Gate wood,
who muffed it, and Connors came
home and Sonier got first. Danny
Sweeney came np to the rubber plate
for the second time In the inning and
hit to Bristow, who threw Sage out
at home. Cantillion hit to short and
Sweeney was thrown out at second.
Total, five runs. Des Moines failed to
score in its half of the nrst, and thus
the second contest was opened, with
chances largely in favor of the home
team, which were not diminished as
the game progressed. After the
tirst inning the Rock Island liovs
were called out in front of the grand
stand, where they doffed their caps,
and Director Ohlweiler presented
them with a beautiful floral horse
shoe, with the letters, "R. I. B. B.
C," set in a bed of roses, chrysan
The boys smilingly took their scats
once more, and the second inning
began with Katz at the bat. '
The game was, on the whole, un
eventful, Katz, Cantillion, Sage and
Connors contributing to the hitting
and run-getting for Rock Island and
Traffley for Des Moines.

drink the town dry. The result was
that he became beastly drunk and
wandered up to the Rock Island de
pot, where he lost his hat. Ho went
out on the railroad tracks to find it
and was overcome by sleep, and fell
right where he was. " Officer Wcigand
found him shortly after lying on the

The delegates elected the previous
night to Tuesday's republican con
vention met Satarday night at the
Harper house in obedience to Boss
McConochie's wishes and were organ
ized by him in the election of C. L.
Walker as chairman and C. W. Foss
secretary. The program laid down
by the wily Mac was to have himself
elected delegate at large, in that he
failed of election on the delegation
from his own ward, but finding early
in the proceedings that he could not
secure the strength - required, he
withdrew his name. The outcome
eventually, however, resulted in the
choice of one who, like himself, was
laid aside in his ward caucus.

The caucus proved an animated af
fair within itself and was a fore
runner as to what may be expected in
tomorrow's convention. Among the
candidates for the position of dele
gate at large, Searle represented the
Eckhart A. P. A. strength among the
delegates: Collins the Hemenway
faction, and while Sturgeon, as the
manager of the Atkinson compaign,
was ostensibly the representative of
Atkinson, he was unable to control
the delegates selected, who joined
with the Lynn crowd in electing
Denkmann to the coveted honor, thus
springing fresh complications for
tomorrow s convention to solve
The general situation is not al

furnish the candidate.
The Moline delegates met at the
Keator house Saturday night and

Morris Hosen field, of this city,
submitted to an operation at the
hands of Dr. Nathaniel Senn, of Chi
cago, assisted by Dr. G. G. Craig, of
Kock Island, in Chicago tbis morn

cause of the trouble with which
he has been suffering for
some time. The operation proved
successful in all respects. The seat
of the ailment was in the abdominal
cavity, which was opened and the
appendix vermiformius removed. No
unnatural conditions were found to
exist, and the surgeons now feel that
the patient's recovery will be speedy.
