brief speech. 'Geutlenien and

the several hundred Woodmen of the
city." The speaker said that as vet

the gloriousness of the order and
the easv manner in which
poor man might make provision for

At the conclusion of the exercises
in the square, the procession re
formed and proceeded to the Peoria
depot, where it met the excursion
from rcoria and intermediate points.
The 1'eurta Kxcurskon.
The excursion from Peoria con
sisted of 11 coaches carrving 4S2pas
scngcrs. Engine 17 in charge of En
gineer Perry and Conductor Horn
nulled the train into Uock Island.
The train picked up passengers at

Robert Furst; gentry, Thomas Fow

In "the meantime the head oilicers
had arrived by boat from Fulton,
and the procession then proceeded
on its way to the picnic grounds at
the head of Twentienth street, where
a program had been prepared for
presentation, including addresses by
V. A. Morthcott, head consul,
and Sherman Searle, together
with siDging by a quar
tet, dancing, amusements, racing
and sports. The log rolling con
tinues this evening.
The Silver Crescent brought in an
excursion at 12:30 from Muscatine
numbering about COO, under the aus
pices of Camp 106 of that city, and
accompanied by the camp and a band
of music. Another river excursion
is expected this afternoon.
A Great Success.
The log-rolling proved a great
success, far surpassing the anticipa
tions of the local camps having the
arrangements in charge, the number
of strangers in the city being in the
neighborhood of C,000, and the Rock
Island Woodmen are more than
pleased with the result of their
efforts to make the occasion a nota
ble oue in the history of Woodcraft.
There were Woodmen present from
all over the county.

and City camp, 309, ci-rried axes.

Yesterday's game at Twin-City
park was a beauty. It was a pitch
er's battle and Silent Sonier proved
his superiority over Beam. Then
Uock Island put ginger enough in
the contest to set a crowded house to
sneezing. Sweeney started the game
willi a base hit. Canlillon hit one
down to Flynn, and SweVnev, who
was just rounding second started for
third. George N niton saw him com
ing and stood on the line to block
him and called to Purvis for the ball.
Jim slammed it over to him and
Danny Sweeney kept right on and
knocked Nulton head over heels, the
bail going over near the left field
fence and Sweeney scored. George
didn't block an one else all through
the game. Zeis hit to Beam and
went out at lirst. Katz was gifted a
base and Kreig got a base hit. but
Hill flew out to Flynn. For I'eoria,
Shaffer got a base "on balls and stole
second. Carroll struck out and
Flyun Hew out to Sweeney. Jim
Purvis, that tall Indian who covers
the territory about lirst base, biffed
the ball out for two bases, and "Nel
lie" Shaffer came home, Somers
struck out aud left Jim where he
was. Then it was nip and tuck until
the fifth, when Uock Island liegan
ouc of those rough houses.
Sweeney Hew out to Delahanty aud
Cantillon went out at lirst "on a
ground hit to 'Delia." William
Waddle Zeis gently pushed the
sphere for a base, and Joe Squedunk
Katz picked up a log of Cord wood,
and running alter the little colored
mascot which is wielding a magnetic
influence over the dub, made him
"mesmerise'" it. Result: Out went
another base hit. Bill Kreig ran
after the little tan-skin, and again
the youngster magnetized the bat,
and once more a base hit was the re
sult, and Zeis and Katz came home.
Hill hit to Kulton and forced Kreig
at second. Peoria failed to score
again until the eighth, and so did
Rock Island, but the latter scored one
then, and three in the ninth, while
the best Peoria could do was one in
the eighth and two in the ninth.
These last two were gilts, as Silent
let down after he had the distillers
beaten. The score is appended:

Gen. Wilson, of the Montana divi
sion of Coxey's Commonweals, ad
dressed an audience of about one
hundrcd-aud-lirty last evening in
Market square. His talk was of the
illogical character that has always
characterized Coxevism, and Wil son
neither . convinced anyone of his
hearers, who went only for curiosity
to hear him, nor did he do any harui.
He explained the object of the Coxey
mociiieni. ami told where the vast
armies, numbering in all .Wl,0i),
were, rroni this he turned to
stiikes, and explained his version of
the situation today. He claimed to !e

E. pin. He is evidently a warm sup
porter of Debs ami the A. U. U. and
roundly roasted P. M. Arthur for uot
calling out the engineers all over the
country to stand by the Pullman
strikers. He recited" some incidents
in his Montana life and explained the
distinction between a "bum" and
"hoto." "A bum.' said Wilson, "is
a man who will work for a meal and
that is all, but a 'hobo1 is a man who
