The baseball nine of the village of
Gilchiiet. 111., came over here one
day not many weeks ago and beat
the boys 01 this town, add Sunday
they aid It all oyer again. The
game took place at the grounds of
tbe corester lion club. it was at
tended and witnessed by a large
number of people, and it was quite a
brilliant event of the kind. The
Davenport clnb was the one that was
matched against the visitors. The
score stood 3 to 0 in favor of the lat
ter. They have a strong combina
tion, and they are reported to have
a pit-her that kept the batters of the
home team guessing, and very un
certain most of the time. Davenport
It is not entirely a new experience
for the Mercer county boys to come
up here and whallop the life ont of
Davenport's base ball teams. Some
time less than twenty years ago Dav
enport had a erack home team. It
was non-preiessional when it started
and was known as the Remington
clnb. and L. C. Stockwell, now of
Cordova, who has since shown as a
star in the diamond in various parts
01 the country, and Harry Glaspell,
a weu Known traveling salesman liv
ing in Davenport; George Preston,
now in the southwest, and B.llv
Barnes, still in Davenport, were the
most prominent members. For a
time the Kemingtons successively
vanqnisnea everything mat came
along, including two or three teams
from Chicago. Hat one dav an awk
ward squad of players catue up from
Ubitnkoarg. ine aggregation was
composed of coal diggers f 1 om Keithe-
Durg -sua iiiicbrmt mines. The
members wore green stockings and
belts and were known a9 the Colliers.
They went up against the Kemiug
tons and won with ease. With the
visitors was a pitiher who threw a ball
as 11 it was discharged from a cannon.
That man's name was Rockwell.
About tbe time the Davenport batter
began to think about striking the
sphere It had reached the catoher and
was on its way back to the pitoher.
ine wnaimg the Usniingtons re'
ceived did not discourage them.
They at once engaged this wonderful
pitcher and two others of the Mer
cer connty nine to fill out the weak
places in their own team. The
players picked from the Colliers were
Kockweil; a second baseman named
"Bid" McPhee, and a fielder named
Maskrey. They reported for duty
at once. The Colliers bad no catcher
who could receive Rockwell's pitch
ing oil the bat, but Billy Barnes, the
aemington catcner, coma, and he is
still wearing the evidence of it in
distorted thumbs and lingers. This
was the beginning of professional
base ball in the tri-cities. The Rem
ingtons cleaned up everything that
came along the remainder of
that season. The next year
tno uavenport ail-proiessional
club appeared with Rockwell,
McPhee. Maskrey, Stockwell, Glass-
pell and Barnes, all that were carried
over from the victorious team of the
year before, and a league including
also Dubuque. Peoria and Rockford
ftnoii Players Developed.
That league developed some of the
most lamous players in the base ball
wona. Kockweil was regarded as
wonder. lie threw a straight ball
right over the plate, knew nothing
01 ine curve, out he put such speed
into nis aeuvery that the average
batsman could not gnage him. - It
took but a short time for Rockwell to
"pitch hie arm off." so to ipeak. and
as he could play so other position, he
went back to Keithsburg. After the
dissolntion of the league McPhee
went to Cincinnati and he is still
there regarded as the greatest second
Daseman in the country. Maskrey
went Into the National league, but
is now a "has-been." Stockwell be
came a professional player, and dis
tinguished himself, bnt he has seen
his best days. He is now livieer at
Cordova and plays occasionally. He
led a nine down to Davenport a few
Sundays ago and was beaten some-
tning like 17 to 0. Glasepell and
Barnes retired and both still live in
uavenport. The other members of
the professional team continued in
tne business in other cities, bat
none of them were stars. While
uavenport was developing great
piayers, so were I'eona and Rock-
ford, for in their teams the Rowes,
the Gleaeons. Radbonrne. Carrol.

According to today's Chicago Tri
bune Washington special "the presi
dent has appointed Charles W. Ken
drick, of Louisiana, consul at Cuidad
Juarez, Mexico." This is accepted as
implying that a successor has been
named to Msj. L. M. Buford, as Uncle
Sam's representative on the Mexican
frontier, and while the major's
many friends here would regret to
hear that such was the case, they
would be happy to welcome their
fellow townsman back among them
again. The announcement, while it
is reasonable to regard it as affect
ing Consul Buford, is a source of
surprise and disappointment in view
of the influence that has been exerted
in .behalf of his retention.
THE NEW PRINCIPAL.
Roblaaon who will Have tha Dlrae-
ttoa of Ibe Hifch Sanaol Hereafter.
From everything that oan be
learned, the school board has made
no mistake in the electing Dr. E.
V. Robinson, of Muskegon, to the
principalship of the Hook Island
Uign scnooi. Air. Kobinson is a man
of about 30 years of age, fine, robust
physique, ruddy complexion, a
genial manly bearing and is in every
woiu ana action a periect gentleman.
He is a graduate in the classical
course from the university of Michi
gan, after which he taught for a few
years and then went to Europe to
complete his education. He entered
the university of Lelpsic, where he
received his Ph. D. degree after com
pleting two years of work. Dr.
Kobinson then returned to this
country and was immediately elected
principal of tbe MuBkegon High
school, where he had under his im
mediate supervision 450 pupils. This
position he held until he was induced
by a more favorable engagement to
accept a similar position in this city.
Mr. Koomson, is recognized as one
of the foremost high school
men of the country. He is well
known throughout the middle and
eastern states, is in touch with the
great universities of the east, is a
student of educational qaestions and
is at the present time working in
conjunction with Snpt. Young on
ways and means of putting the. Kock
Island High school in the front ranks
of the verv best in the Mississippi
valley. That these two men, backed
by the hearty cooperation of the
board of education, will do this, there
is not the shadow of a doubt. It is
the purpose of their having the
school in charge to broaden and
strengthen the coarse of eludy and
employ teachers of such scholarship
and teaching powers that the school
shall bs placed upon the accepted
list of the -best universities' of
the land. The boys and girls who
enter the Rock Island High school
this fall and those who are already
members will have reason to be
proud of their alma mater when
they shall receive diplomas of grad
uation. The indications now point
to a membership of nearly three hun
dred for next year. Dr. Robinson,
with his young wife, to whom he
was married last June, will arrive
here about the 12th of August.
The favorite comedian, Digby Bell,
who scored such a pronounced hit in
"The Hooaier Doctor" at the Grand
opera house, Chicago, where he
achieved the longest run of any at

fall and winter season of that theatre

Miss Lottie Temple, the 17-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Temple, of Rapids City, has been
missing since July 1, and friends
fear she has been foully dealt with.
Lottie,is said to have been a pretty
girl. Her father runs a shoe atore
at Port Byron, and the family is
well known in the upper end of the
county. Lottie left home last Jan
nary and went to Chicago, stopping
at the Misiion home on South Green
street. Later she obtained a posi
tion with the family of F. B. Hnrd,
on Hermitage avenue. Miss Tem
ple evidently liked life in a large
city. She was a bright girl and
made acquaintances rapidly. She
wrote regularly to her mother, until
a few weeks ago, when Mrs. Temple,
after waiting in vain for the usual
message from her daughter, com
mnmcated with the Chicago police
and asked that they inquire as to
what had become of her.
A strange young man called at the
Temple home last week. He carried
a few articles of wearing apparel be'
longiog to Lottie, which he delivered
to her mother. He said he was from
Cnicago, and asked if Miss Temple
nad arrived nome yet. He reiused
to give his name, but admitted that
he was a barber and lived in Chi
cago.- He cried when informed that
nothing had been heard from Lottie.

From Chicago comes the story that
Miss Temple soon after taking np
her abode in the big city met William
Garrison, a barber. It is aaid he in
duced the girl to live with him at
the home of Mrs. James Sanders on
State street. Garrison and Miss
Temple were seen together July 1
at the Capitol saloon on State street.
They remained there for some time.
The girl was not with Garrison when
he returned to his boarding place.
Garrison told Mrs. Sanders, who im
mediately began inquiring about
Miss Temple, that ste had started
from the saloon before him, and he
supposed she had arrived home.
From that date Lottie Temple has
oeen gone. 1H3 following day Gar-
riaon left his boarding place and the
police are unable to locate him. Miss
Temple's clothes are still at Mrs
The last letter received by Mrs.
Temple from her daughter is dated
June SO. In this letter Lottie stated
that she was soon to wed, but re
frained from mentioning the name of
her prospective husband. A few
days before her disappearance Mrs.
Sanders found Lottie weeping in her
reom. Asking ner what was the
trouble. Miss Temple replied that
she had had some words with Gam
