J. P. Weyerhauser to Leave Rock Island
It will be with general regret that

that it is J. P. Weverhauser's inten
tion to move his family away from

to locate in Duluth. Minn., where he
has extensive lumler. interests, to
which he will thereafter devote his
attention. The Weverhauser svndi
cate has 16 mills in tha north aside
from those in Rock Island and Dav
enport, and with the Musser com
pany of Muscatine, as stated yester
day, has purchased the Minnesota
and iscousin pine lands of Dimock,
Gould & Co., the consideration being
While the removal of both mills and
millowners to points nearer the base
of the log supply is but the matter of
a few years in all case where mills
are operated along the lower and mid
die Mississippi, the evidence of break
ing up is, .""nevertheless, witnessed
with the deepest sense of disappoint
ment. So that while the prospective
removal of Mr. Weverhauser froui the
city Mill cause the deepest regret
as it means the loss of one of the citv s
most substantial and worthy citizens
the prospect of the only remaining mill
of the Lumber company going, too, at
an early date does not tend to miti
gate that feeling. The growth of
Rock Island in the upper end has Deen
so rapid in recent years, carrying
with it the increasing demand for
residence sites, that grave fears are
now felt that the storage yards of
the company will seon le so cramped
that it will, when existing leases ex
pire, simply do what it will be
obliged to do in a few years anyway,
and move. This is a matter that has
not been entirely decided vet, how
ever, and it is to bo hoped when it is
settled the company will conclude to
live out the remainder of what in
the course of events will be
its existence as a manufacturing
industry at this point, on the river,
A representative of the company said
to an Aitr.rs reporter yesterday that
he was hopeful that au arrangement
could be made whereby the company
would feel justified in continuing to
operate its rema'nmg mills here.

THEY FIGHT A DRAW
Outcome of the Much Talked-of
Barry-Leon Meeting Last
THE MANAGEMENT IS CETTICISED.
While the Contest Was Apparently On Its
Merits, the Audience Paid For It In
Money and Patience The Burns-Cannon
TTrestline; Match to Coaue Off This
Evening. - .
The much heralded and talked-of
battle bet ween Jimmy Barry, of Chi
cago, who is styled the uudisputed
champion of the little men, and Cas
per Leon, of New York, came off last
night at Claus Groth hall, Davenport,
under the auspices of the Tri-City
Athletic club, and terminated in a
draw. It was claimed that Manager
Jack Leonard had hung up a purse of
f 1,500 for the winner. Ouite a large
crowd was in attendance, including
representative pf .Chicago's sporting
fraternity, and bunches from other
cities in Illinois ' and Iowa. r.
The preliminaries began at 9:3 and
kept the crowd in good spirits for
about an hour. Tom Dunn, of Peo
ria, officiated as master of ceremonies,
and for the opening go announced
Frank Bartley and Tommy White, of
Chicago, who tapped one another on
the kisser for three roun-'. Tommy
Smith, of Davenport, au.. IJinrice
Ranch, of Chicago, also sparred three
friendly bouts, and Jack Wright (col
ored) and Jack Manning, Leon's
trainer, went for four rounds.
Then there was over an hour's in
termission that taxed the patience of
the spectators, who were informed
that the wait was for the purpose of
keeping faith with a delegation that
was coming in over the B., C. K. & N
from Cedar Rapids and other towns
At 11:30 the bantams, Barry and
Jx?on, entered the rinr. Ihey were
given an ovation. In Barry's corn
er were Jack Manning. Maurice Ranch
and Don Leach, and Leon's seconds
were Frank. Bartlev, Tom White, Wil
liam McGurn and Pat Fitzgerald, all
of Chicago. Lou Houseman, sport
ing editor of the Chicago Inter Ocean,
was chosen as official timekeeper. W.
J. Egan held the watch for Leou and
Tom ' Dunn for Barrv. Malachv
Hogan, of Chicago, refereed the main
event, iom Dunn refereed the pre
Sclcntinc But Mow.
On the whole the fight was a scien
tific one, although there was some dis
position to criticiso it as slow up to
the closinr bout. Barry seemed to
deliver the more effective blows. He
was invariably stationed in the center
of the arena ready for business, his
antagonist adopting just the opposite
tactics ami playing on the detensive.
Although in some rounds the ex
changes were more frequent and hot
ter than in others, nothing happened
until the 20th that would warrant a
statement any more extended than
that the preceding rounds were dupli
cates of one another.
In the 20th Barry attempted to put
his old rival on queer street, and came
within an ace of succeeding, bv rush
ing the light, which became fast and fu
rious at this stage of the proceedings.
Leon appeared fatigued, and was
shaking like a leaf when he received a
stinging body blow that forced him to
cling to his opponent for protection
The men were parted, anil Barry placed
two moie tierce ones, knocking Leon
down and causing himself to stagger
over against the ropes. Before they
had an opportunity to get at it again
the gong was sounded and the battle
was over. Malachy Hogan declared
it a draw, and his decision seemed to
meet with general approval, although
there were many in the audience who
felt that they had not been given their
money's worth, and declared that the
meeting was nothing more than a
sparring exhibition. Neither lighter
bore evidence of rough treatment.
Fault Was With the Management.
Inasmuch as the liirht appeared to
be on the level, there was less dispo
sition on the part of those present to
find fault with those who participated
than there was with the management.
For the first time since Jack Leonard
took charge of sporting events in Dav
enport the true aim and policy of his
management to get all there is in it
reirardless of obligations to, or ac
commodations for those upon whom
he is dependent, became manifestly
apparent in many respects, and the
event served to demonstate that Leon
ard, notwitbstandingall his boasts and
self-puffery to the contrary, is not
at the present time suffering
from the symptoms of an attack of
conscientious scruples such as 'would
warrant the calling in of a physician.
The disposition of last night was ap
parently to make sure in advance of
all that was essential in the way of
seeing the pecuniary end of the per
formance through, and to let those who
trusted in the management look ont
for themselves as far as results were
concerned. The people who did at-
while the event was out of the ordin- j
ary in the three cities, the pricey
were, too. It need not le said th t t hey
were exorbitant from f 1.50 to $5 a
ticket but they were such that
the management'conld not have ex-
r3 rtti I r tn taA p! Tiap in (Via lirk - 9
puolic lenefactors or philanthropists. "
Those who went paid for all they saw. ,
and the percentage who bought
tickets in advance, thinking that in so
doing they were reserving heats, and .
found on reaching the hall that the j
numbered seat system was mainly im
aginative, and that it was a case of
"get your seat if you can," felt par- j
