l?y winning yesterday's game from
St. Joseph, Kock Island cinched its
claim to the pennant in the race of
the Western Base Hall association.
It was not necessary to have the vic
tory to assure the l!a coming to
Kock Island, but the results remove
all po.-sibility of doubt and give the
team the championship as an abso
lute certainty. No matter what Ihe
result of future games, and even
should the 9 to 0 jjame at Quiney
given to Koek Island because the
Gem City team was not in readiness
to begin, and the Peoria game in Uoek
Ilarni over which Manager T'racki-tt
of the listillers has entered a pro
test, claiming the home team had
not the grounds in condition to be
gin at the advertised time, be thrown
out. the Twins have a lead sullieient
to win out anyway. It is not at all
likely that cither of these games will
he dropped by the league directors.as
the 1 wins in both mtanccs were gov
erned in the results by the umpire's
decision, which generally goes in
such cases. The Qaincy game has
never been counted to Rock Island's
credit in the percentage column,
however, but the outcome in "either
event is immaterial now.
A Frotiy K:ice.
The race for the pennant in the
Western association this year has
been the prettiest in the history of
bae ball, and has been watched with
interest all over the country, and
commented upon by the newspapers
everywhere. The team, therefore,
that has represented Kjck Island so
ereditat ly has brought the city f-ime,
not only in winning the champion
ship tlag, out in being one ot the
participants in so excitinir a race.
While the club had it reverses and
struck the toboggan slide at such a
furious rate at one time that it
seemed as if all hopes of getting near
the top again were dashed to the
ground, the prompt and po.-itie ac
tion of Secretary fdcllsigh in calling
th? players1 attention to business
had a stimulating effect, the rallying
cry went along the line, and thebovs
struck a winning gait a-jain. Since
then they have kept it up. and thv
may be credited now with losing less
Sanies at a time as well as dropping
less away from home than any other
club, l.esides that the players have
the reputation throughout the
league of being the best behaved,
and most gentlemanly ball players of
Wliere the Credit lttloiiH.
The credit for the success of the
club in the excellent shewing made,
as well as financially, is due primar
ily to Secretary Mcilugh, who by the
application of businos principles
has brought it out whole aud whith-
out a cent of debt hr.ngiug over it.
and whose firmness in handling the
players, and whose gentlemanly de
port on all occasions, has insnre 1 the
ends so much desired. To Manager
Sage is due great praise for picking
such a splenaid team, as well as iu
guarding the local association's in
terests when away from home and on
all occasions. To dipt. Cantillou,
who has grown in the favor of the
patrons of the game ijuite as much as
anv player that has ever been here
anl whose admirable field general
ship, and personal energy and pride
in the emu, is ilue no less credit, anil
if Air. Cantillou was misjudged at
the opening of the season it was be
cause he was not understood. Over
zeal is Joe's chief fault, and it is not
a besetting sin.
To Catchers Sage antl Zeis, Pitch
ers Souier, Andrews. Mauek and
Hurrell. toKreig, Canttilon, Lvnch,
Hill, Katz and Sweeney, each of
whom in his individual capacity has
contributed to the results, the city of
Rock Island offers its compliments
ana congratulations, and an ex pros
ion of its pride iu the team aud the
work so excellently done.
Here's to the boys, long life and
happiness, and may they all be with
us another year.
Yesterday's contest, while close
and exciting up to the ninth inning,
was marked by many and costly er
rors, neither club giving its pitcher
any support. Mauck and Kling were
the pitchers, and their work was not
what could be called good, Kling do
ing the better of the two, however,
up to the last inning, when he went
to pieces. Kock Island made one of
its dashes and the team in the field
which had gone out confident of win
ning, was stunned by the vim with
which the Twins tackled them. They
were rattled beyond recovcry.aud the
home team wou out with tallies to
spare right then. Andrews started
the ball rolling in the first inning by
letting one man in on his error in left
field, while Sage let another run in
on his bad play, not a hit being made.
And so it went all through the game,
the field work of both teams being
miserable. When the visitors were
retired in the eighth inning, the
score standing 8 to 7 in their favor,
there were many long and frowning
faces, some starting to leave, with
the assurance that the bovs were
done for. Rut when Rock - Island
went to bat in the ninth, and Hill,
Sage and Lynch got bases on bails,
and Andrews hit safe, scoring Hill,
they held their scats and commenced
to feel relieved. They smiled when
Mauek hit safe to third, forcing Sage
out at home, and on a well throw
Lynch scored. On another error by
Snyder. Sweeney was safe at first.
But you oujjht to have heard them
holloo when Cantillou, Zeis and Kreig
knocked out S-baggers, and in all
made eight runs, putting them seven
ahead of the visitors. Tho jig was
up St. Joe didn't get a run. The

STATUS CF THE CASE.
Wlmt Is Deliiylns tlie Hr moral of tbe
The committee appointed some
time ago by the Modern Woodmen
camps of this city to confer with the
directors of this'order al l u't.m, to
see what had become pf the injunc
tion gotten out by the people of that
city against the removal of the head
ollices to Kock Island, went up to
Fulton yesterday, being accompanied
by Harold A. Weld, who went in place
of Vice Prcsdent (iuyer. of the Im
provement association. The commit
tee including three members from
each of Kock Island camp. No.

Mi-Kown. K. J. Summers. J. F. Mun
ger, J.K. Larkin and Lmil llellpen
stell. After making known its mis
sion to the directors, the commission
was informed that after the tempo
rary injunction was issued both sides
agreed to the submission of written
arguments on the questions at issue
to the court. The brier were Jilud
last May, and as Judge Crabtree has
the ease still under his advisement,
his decision may be looked for at an
early date. In'this explanation the
commission feels that the board has
done all in its power to carry out the
wishes of the Kock Islanders in re
gard to the removal of the head
offices, and must await the action of
Wliere the Itrlny In.
The committee on its let urn last
night seemed on the whole s-alisfied
with its mission. It is quite appar
ent that the delay in taking the mat
ter up may be attributed iu a larjre
degree to " the inditTcret.ee of Di
rector White, who first h:id the case
in hand on bphalf of the Woodmen.
Since Director Johnson has suc
ceeded him the matter has been
pushed more rapidly, and everything
done to facilitate proceedings in the

Among other matters of import,
ance which came In-fore the council
Iri't night was the petition of the
IMwards& Walsh Construction com.
pany, laid over from the last meeting,
asking that it be released from its
contract for paving Nineteenth
street with the National Clay com
pany's brick, stating that enouph
material could not be furnished bv
this company to complete said eon
tract in the specified time, and agree
ing to substitute (ialesburg brick for
the same price per square yard as
stipulated in the original contract
$1.05. After some discussion. Aid.
Dauber moved that the council re
scind its action in awarding the con
tract to Ed wards & Walsh for pav
ing Nineteenth street with the Na
tional Clay company's brick, which
was adopted. Aid. Hladel then
moved that the said company be al
lowed the contract for paving said
street with (ialesburg brick at
the same price, and it wa carried
Aid. Kus limann, frnm the street
and alley coram i iter, presented a re
port, staling that he had ordered the
paving on Twentieth street stopped
and the brick assorted, as nne-third
f them were soft or round and unlit
fur use. The property holders had
c uiiiiined ti him about the mate
rial, and threatened to get out an in
junction against the city if some
action was not tuktn, this being the
cause of his move, in which he was
sustained by the council adopting
Want ater C.iiiuectiomi.
A communication from the I). A: K.

permission to make connections with

Second avenue, agreeing to sustain
part of the cp-nse of construction,
and iu th:it way have part owner

make some pro.Mt'.oa to that effect.
Aid. Kennedy held tht in granting
such a privilege the council was
showing partiality, aud that he be

sentiments w,-re expressed by s mie

and draw wr.ter therefrom with its

at any time the council taw lit. Aid.
Kennedy thin moved, as a substi
tute, that the mayor and waterworks
committee confer ilh tLecompany's
officials, regarding the matter, and
report to the council, whin Aid.
Maucker moved to amend the sub
stitute by adding the superintendent
of waterworks with power to act,
which was carried, all voting aye,
except Kennedy. Then the original
motion as amended was put and car

A resolution asking for the prepa
ration of an ordinance compelling
bicycle riders to use bells in the day
time and lamps at night was intro
duced by Aid. Dauber, and it was re

and alley committees. The resolu
tion, as read, claims that such action
is necessary in protection to the
travelers of our public thoroughfares.

At Harper's theatre tomorrow
night Lincoln J. Carter's new dra
matic production. "The Tornado," is
to be presented. The Chicago Record
says of the play:
With a rushing, roaring, tornado,
uprooting trees and carrying away
houses; with two icssels colliding in
mid-ocean; with a green sea tossin"
a drowning man high on its great
crests and with a shadowy corpse
with golden huir lying 'on a dissect
ing table, there is'eunugh to satisfv
the most ardent admirer of the real
istic. Iu live acts the principal
characters are taken from a little
Wisconsin hamlet thruogh almost
every danger of laud and sea. A
dark alley in Chicago and the foot of
Randolph st reel viaduct, with ekv
scraping buildings iu the background
are bits of scenery.
Davis & Keogh's new production,
Rush City." to be presented at the
Burlis at Davenport tonight, is a
hilarious musical farce by Uus
Heege, with incidental specialties,
elaborate scenery, and an imitation
cyclone that equals any mechanical
"effect" ever shown on any stage.
