Tonight's wrestling match at Har
per's theatre between Dan McLeod,
the California wonder, and Ed J.
Atherton, of Cuba, N. Y., the cham
pion middleweight, promises to be
one of the best athletic events ever
seen in Bock Island. McLeod being
tne cnaiienger or farmer Martin
Burns, the champion of the world,
and regarded, as he is, as one of the
comers in the art. natnrallv attracts
mach interest here, while Ed Ather
ton, in consequence of his recent
struggle 'With Burns, and the splen
did showing he made, together with
having posted 9100 for a middle
weight contest with the champion,
has many admirers in Kock island.
McLeod agrees to throw Athertin
three times in an hour for a wager
oi 9?dU. sj teat the go will be earn
est and exciting.
It is probable, too. that there will
be some significant challenges to
the farmer during the evening, both
on tne part of McLeod and represen
tatives of Lewis, and altogeter the
occasion will be an unusual one for
Bataa la ob BU Mciaela.
The following dispatch was re
ceived at The Argus office this
morning, from Martin Burns at
Monticello, Iowa, where is filling an
engagement, and it comes in reply
to advices sent mm last night as to
the anxiety of Atherton. McLeod and
Lewis to meat him, aad the intirat.

"Be io your office tomorrow at 11;
win wrestle Atherton, McLeod or

From this the indications for
some stirring- events in Bock Island
in the near future 6eem to be fir it
class. The farmer is evidently on
his muscle, nrd is ready to give
tnose wno are so zealous about get
ting on the mat with him, all they
want, lhe rules oi sports give the
champion in any branch the right to
oiciaie reasonable terms, ana as
Burns haa always consistently main
tained that all he desired was a fair
-match with stakes properly posted
and protected, and the conditions
three out of fire falls, there ought to
be no trouble about arranging the
aeries oi matches which are in
Gallagher and Harrison played
400-poin. game of li-inch balk line
at Catton1 academy lt night, the
former Having 4'iu to Harrison's 230.
Gallagher s average was 19 1-19,
Harrison's 11. Catton and Gallag
her are now practicing lor the rnts
burg tournament, articles of agree
ment for which were sent to them to
be signed today.
This is from the St. Louis Repub
lic: "Jake Schaefer will luave for
New York tomorrow. He will not stop
over to pia? uuieite in Cincinnati
as that gentleman wants a month to
practice for the match. Schaefer
says that he cannot spare the time
to stay in the west, as he has inter
ests in New York that demand his
personal attention. Frank Day will
not accompany tne wizard east.
John Lacari, of the Broadway hall.
states that he will probably pnt on
match between Billy Catton and Tom
baiiaguer at his room next week.
Gallagher and Catton wonld be draw
ing cards here. It was in this city
that Grey Tom learned to play the
game, and he is verv popular and
well known locally. Catton is one
of the foremost shortstops in the
country. He is the proprietor of
a billiard hall in Bock Island."

by their answers.
Bock Island fans saw the last rsv
of hope for a base ball team here the
coming season fade away with the
recent make up of the Westen asso
ciation, which did not even encoor
see a movement to reinstate this
city. Yet there is a probability of an
independent team being organized in
stock inland. Tbere is an axceuent
opportunity here for some wideawake,
hustling base ball manager. Playera
will be plentiful, to lodge from pres
ent indications, next summer, and it
would be a very easy matter to got a
crackeriack aggregation together at
a moderate expense. Bock Island is
a good ball town, and would give gen
erous support to a team if it shoed
itself capable of patting up a fair
article of ball.' Several nearby cities
Beards town for instance will have
independent clnbs. and it would not
be a hard matter to arrange a series
of games. What think yon?

LAW FOR A MATRON

Ialaaa Maaaa Oaa.
A bill has been introduced by
Representative McEniry in the honse
at spnn-Mieia providing lor the ap
poimment oi police matrons in cities
of 10,000 population or over. As a
matter of course, the union of this
morning is opposed to the meaure
at the first pop out of the box. Peo
ple of reformatory purpose, however.
will noptfuiiy anticipate the passage
oi the measure, xne adoption of
such a provision in connection with
the police system of cities has long
been sought by tnose identified with
reformatory measures, and it has
been the aim for yean to have it es
tablished by cities independent! v.
and in view of the fact that so many
municipalities have failed at
their option to adopt such a course, it
is incumbent upon the state to place
its sanction upon it.
ClUta Tbat HaTO Bad It.
Cities which have established the
police matron system have demon
strated its wisdom amply, and the
state's interest camesiu the reforma
tory effect, which has been so fre
quently shown, and thus has spared
the state tne duty of caring lor tnose
who if properly guarded and guided
in the first steps of waywardness
may be led into new paths There is
nothing so demoralizing as the asso
ciation with hardened characters
and with a matron properly trained
and fitted to care for and influence
females who are detained by the po
lice, in an apartment wholly sepa
rated from other classes, the work of
good to be accomplished cannot be
estimated, as statistics show. The
end to be attained fully justifies any
means which the state may employ
in the direction of insuring police
matrons in cities the-eize of Bock Isl
Representative McEniry, who
reached home from Springfield last
evening, wns seen this morning with
reierence to ms bill. "The measure
provides for the police matron in the
same sense that the laws of the state
delegate the right to municipalities
to proviae ior anv oBicial." said Mr.
McEniry. "The law contemplated
simpiy maKes the omce oi police m
iron oDiigatory with cities of over
10,000; the manner in which the of
Gee is to bo filled is to be left entire
ly with the mayor and city council."
