The New Court House Design
HQ ILAIS WHOLLY ACCEPTED.
The board of supervisors this
morning adopted the plans of R. G.
Gunn, of the firm of Curtis A Gunn,
of Kansas City, Mo., who is accepted
as designing architect of the
new court house. The board had
originally selected six plans from
whicn to cnoose, tne architects sub
mitting their designs under nonde
pl nines, which, with the original
names, are as follows: "Dome." B.
G. Gunn, Kansas City; Borneo,"
M. IS. Ben, Cbicago; ) U "
Drack ft Kerns. Bock Island;
The Winner," Charles Bell, Coun
cil Bluffs; Circle Dart," George
P. Stauduhar, Rock Island; Truth,"
O. W. Marble. Chicago. There were
18 plans presented from 14 archi
tects. This morning the board de
cided to select from the six favored
plans a first, second and third choice
so that should the first fail to furnish
the necessary requirements the plan
would fall to the next.
Selected by Ballot.
The board selected the three
by ballot which was done in
the presence or the public. For
nrst cnoice tne vote resulted:
Dome," 19; "O O," 6; Romeo," 1.
Only 14 votes being necessary,
IJome" was declared first choice.
'O O" received second choice,
with 15 votes, while Win

1, and -Truth" 1. Three ballots
were necessary before a third choice
conld be reached, and resulted:

later made a supplementary report
adding the designs of O. W. Marble,

the stone men while the plans were
under discussion. The interest of
the representatives of quarries in the
deliberations as to plana was not
a spectacle that the public at large
took kindly to, any more than it has
to the seclusiveness that has charac
terized the committee's and . the
board's methods. But be that as it
may, the time to consider stone
seems now to face the board. This
seems to be a matter in which the
public should be given a chance to
express itself, even if it has been de
nied ooportnnity to pass judgment
on the various plans. On the subject
of material, however, the people of
tne county are likely to nave more
positive opinions than on tne plans.

possessing strong points pecu
culiar to itself, and all in their own
way having inviting features not
common to others. But in stone it
is different. People have ideas on
the relative merits of stone. In
Bock Island there has been a gener
ally expressed sentiment on the kind
that should be used in the Rock I si
and court house. The Arsis,
months ago, endeavored to learn the
predominating feeling, and it was
then, with little exception, all one
way. Many of the supervisors were
in accord with the opinion then
freely expressed. rublic opinion
may have changed, though, and so
may the opinions of supervisors, but
the board should at all events take
the time to ascertain the voice of the
people before acting. Heretofore the
board has gone ahead regardless of
the public. This may be the case
with" the stone. The disposition of
the subject will, however, be watched
with a great deal of interest.

TRI-CITY TEAM TALK.
tsee Ball rtaapeata far Back lalaad, at a
Uaeaaa' Dana port.
George S. Shngart, of 'Council
Bluffs, arrived in Bock Island this
morning to work up a tri-eity base
ball organisation to go into a new
semi-professional league which he is
interested in forming. The plan or
iginally was to call it an Iowa league.
but since there is a ieeiing in uaven
port to have Bock Island and Moline
join in presenting a clnb for this lo
cality, it will probably be changed to
the Mississippi Vallev league. The
cities included are Dubuque, Bur
lington, Cedar Rapids, Ottumwa and
Clinton. Last evening Secretary
McHugh was approached on the mat.
ter and views it with favor, and will
be present at the meeting to be held
at the Kimball house, Davenport, to
morrow night to consider it.
The Davaapart Tlew.
The Davenport Leader of last night
says of the proposition:
The twin-cities snonid never nave
made the attempt to force their way
into the Western league alter the
shabby treatment they received, as
they have entirely too good a ball
town to go about begging i lot of
sand-baggers lor a place in a league.
The shoe will be on the other foot
before the season is half way over.
Qaincy has never supported a team;
neither has Jacksonville, and tne lit
tle gang of small-bore league mag
nates will be mighty glad to welcome
a paying town like the twin-cities.
but when that time comes, tney win
get the cold shoulder. But we want
base ball, and there is no reason wny
we should not have it. A new Iowa
league is being organized which will
be composed of Dubuque, Clinton,
Burlington, Ottumwa, Cedar Bapids,
Waterloo and Marshall town, and
they want us. Mr. Shugert, of Du
buque, who is taking an active inter
est in the organization of this league.
will be in Davenport in a few days.
and we should be ready to talk busi
ness. The leading spirits ol the uocic
Island-Moline club are willing and
anxious to merge into a tn-city club.
They have an opportunity of going
into the I-I league, of which Schmidt
is president, but the people across
the river would prefer to nnite with
Davenport and have a tri-eity team
in the Eastern Iowa league or what
ever it may be called. This is a dis
position that should be welcomed
with a feeling of hearty co-oper
ation on the part ox the lovers oi base
ball in Davenport, mere is no vast
amonnt of money required to make
the tri-city club a go. Grounds in
perfect order are all ready to begin
work. If Davenport people want
some of the games here, and that
would be desirable, an that is neces
sary is to get good grounds on some
of the car lines here, but that is not
a necessity to start with, because for
the time being, we can go over and
see our" clnb play across the river,
and with greater interest, because it
will be a team which wm belong 10
the three cities and be called the
"Tri-City team," and as soon as we
can fix np grounds here we can have
onr share of the games here if we
want them. Tbe uniforms and out
fit are also ready and require no out
lay of cash. Enough season tickets
can be sold to furnish the little cash
that is required to begin with, so that
there is no necessity 01 bustling lor
It is proposed that the lovers of
base ball in Davenport have a meet
ing at the Kimball house parlors Sat
urday evening 01 this week and dis
cuss the matter. The other towns
are taking great interest in the mat
ter, the sentiment being voiced by
the IJlinton Herald when it savs:
"All that is wanted is good, clean
sport and honest ball, and this can be
obtained with a salary limit of $500
to $600. Under this limit, if strictly
enforced, and the teams all . kept
about equal in strength, any one 01
tne cities mentioned ean play tbe a
son out. and some will have balance
on the right side when the pennant
is awarded. Clinton last season with
its amateur team enjoyed some ex
eellent games, and there are many
people here who would like to see
good ball this year.
