LOCAL TEAMS VICTORIOUS.
Exciting Basketball Gimn at the
Y. M. C. A. Gymnasium.,.
The llock Island Y. M. C. A. was an
easy victor in two games of basket
ball last evening, the Mistlx defeating
the business college team of Augus
tana by a score of 12 to 6, and the
business men's team wiping out to
the tune of 24 to 9-the defeat sus
tained by a local team at Muscatine
early in the winter.
The seating space in the gymnas
ium was all taken to see the biggest
event in basketball pulled off here
this season, and every spectator got
his money's worth in fun and satis
faction. The Mistlx and the Augus(ana team
played first, the former leading easily
throughout the game. The scores in
the two halves were identical, being
6 to 3 in faver of the Mistix in each
case. The lineup:

The second game began at about
8:30. The two teams appeared- well
matched, the visitors being consider
ably the younger and slightly inferior
in weight, although more active. The
home team had the advantage in two
or three tall members that enabled
them t j play successfully above the
heads of their opponents. The Rock
Island team also excelled in accuracy
in throwing baskets, the work of Bly
man being exceptionally line.
There was some rather rough work
in the first half, in which the audi
ence appeared to consider the visitors
the aggressors. The play was fast
and furious and there were hard
knocks sustained on both sides. The
half ended 9 to 5 in the home team's
The second half was a repetition of
the first. Rock Island keeping the
bill at their opponents' goal the
greater part of the time, and repeat
edly throwing baskets from the field.
The only scores made by the visitors
in this hair were on fouls, and the
game ended 21 to 9. The sensational
play 01 the game was made by Kly-
inan in the second hall. Ue threw
for a basket on a foul and failed. Tbe
ball dropped, was passed back to him
and he threw ( a clean basket from
the field without leaving his tracks.

DIREFUL NEED OF FIRE BOXES
EMPHASIZED BY CHIEF HASTINGS AND CITIZENS
Many business men have com
mended today the suggestion made
through the columns of The Aruus
last evening that bteps be taken to
orovide the business portion of the
city with suitable fire protection in
the way of alarm boxes. The nearest
fire boxes to the business section aro
at Twentieth street and Third avenue
acd Fifteenth street and Fourth ave
nue. The central engine novse is
nearer to the business .section than
any alarm station, but it is a consid
erable distance for a run in the middle
of the 'night. There is not a
box on ' Second or First ave
nue east of the plow works
When business men contemplate
this situation and tbe direfnl possi
bilities that might result they are
astounded. Rock Island has the
credit, and the just credit, of having
one of the best paid fire departments
in the state, a department that has
made a record for itself of holding
tires in check and squelching them in
their incipiency. And the only way
that this has been accomplished has
been through promptness in getting
on the scene, most of the fires occur
ring in the day time, but they are just
as apt to happen at night. That the
firemen may have tbe advantage in
point of time saved is the first re
quisite. -; .
There should be no precaution neg
lected to insure prompt transmission
of the alarm to the central Bouse. Toe
instantaneous alarm is of 'course the
most reliable. The business men or
other property holders ought, not to
be obliged to depend upon telephones
or other means than the alarm that
WANT BRICK PAVING
Twentv-first Street Owners Ask
Improvement to Tenth
PETITION SENT TO THE COUNCIL
After Names Had Been Withdrawn
From One Favoring As
pHaltumNotes. Action taken by the semi-monthly
meeting of the city council last night
insures the paving of Twenty-first
street with brick, probably durin
the approaching summer, a petition
asking the making of the improve
ment from a point between Second
and Third to Tenth" avenues and
bearing the signatures of holders
of 3 721 J feet 70 J feet in excess of
majority having been submitted by
Aid. Anderson and referred to the
board of local Improvements.
Originally the council was asked to
pave the street with aspbaltum from
Sixth avenue south, and the sina
turesof property holders representin
the required frontage were attached to
tbe petition. At this juncture in to
proceedings those who had not Inves
tisrated this important item were
made acquainted by the advocates of
brick with the fact that asphaltum was
considerably th8 rucra expensive
and the result was the withdrawal of
enough names from the first ; petition
to invalidate it.
Higher L'censa Kates.
In recommending the renewal
the franchise for another year of the
Davenport & Rock Island errv com
pany, Aid. Andrews painted to the
increase in the demands upon the
municipal exchequer and the fact
that license rates remained undis
turbed, whereas, in his opinion, tb
charges should be adjusted to meet
new conditions. He apparently fa
vored Increasing the Ferry company'
license rate, but he said his fellow
committeemen did not see fit to
make a change, and he moved the re
newal of the franchiso under the old
terms, and the council unanimously
concurred. The Ferry company pays
f 100 per year.

NEW SCHOOL LIBRARY:
LADIES MEET TOMORROW
' All ladies of the city interested in
tbe movement to replace the high
school library, destroyed by tore, are
urged to be present at 10 o'clock to
morrow morning at the meeting at
tbe home of Mrs. Morris Roseniield
when it is hoped to devise a plan by
which this valuable adjunct of the
school can at least be partially ro
The manner in which the - first

practice, there will be much loss in

ed in passing to acd from classes.
All pupils and teachers will assemble
every morning at the Sunday school

may have some influence upon the
day's program, but ordinarily classes

IN BUSINESS SECTION
the city provides for public safety.
"The conditions as they exist at
present are deplorable," said Chief
Hastings this morning. "What we
need in Rock Island is a direct fire
alarm system. It is the only thing
to be absolutely relied upon. We
should make a move in the direction
of divorcing the existing combined
arrangement of fire and police alarms
They should bo separate. The best
way to itart the change is for tbe
city to inaugurate a few independent
boxes in tto business section and add
so many each year until the com
bincd arrangement 1b displaced. This
arrangement would not prove too ox
pensive. The plan now in use will
answer the purpose in tbe outlying
districts until the other can bo put in
gradually for the benefit of both de
partmenta. But tbe business part of
tbe city should have the beneht 01 a
fev? np-to-date alarm boxes right
A citizen, in speaking of the matter
this morning, stated that it was sur
prising to him that the insurance
companies had not taken the matter
op in Rock Island before this,' "and,'
said he, ' I believe thoy will when
they understand the true eitnation.

"Brown's in Town" is said to be an
uproariously funny play on the farce

and the action of the play takes place
during one summer's day. Three
acts are; used in which to tell the
story, t,he first being morning, the

young couple to keep their marriage
a secret, until they hit upon an idea
to spring the news upon the young
man's father, who objects to his son's
marrjing until he reaches a certain
Bge. The young man, who assumes
the name of Brown, seeks seclusion in
a country place 10 mi es from the
city, but to his inexpressible dismay
all their friends and relatives drop
into the same place. The complica

young man tries to keep his marriage
from them and his plan to efface them
effectively but gracefully, are said to
be very humorous ' Brown's in

NOTHING EQUALS IT
For tbe Care of Catarrh
A physician now retired from prac
tice, but who still keeps abreast of tbe
times, in speaking of the advance
made in medicine in the last 10 years
savs: "Ooe of the most obstinate
and baffling diseases is the very com
mon trouble, catarrh.
"Na9al catarrh is only one of its
many forms;' catarrh of the throat
catarrh of the stomach, bowels, liver
and bladder are very common, but
the sufferer usually thinks it is some
thing else than catarrh and is treated
for the wrong disease.
"The best and most successful
treatment for any form of catarrh
now admitted to be by internal rem
edies through the stomach, and the
safest, and probably the most efficient
is tbe tablet form, sold by druggists
as Stuart's Catarrh tablets
"1 have seen many remarkable cures
of catarrh resulting from regular
daily use of these tablets, which seem
to act on the blood and liver, driving
the catarrhal poison out of the sys
tain through tbe natural channels
"I once had occasion to analyze these
tablets and found them to contain no
cocaine nor opiates, but simply
combination of harmless antiseptics
like Eucaiyptal, Gnaiacol, blood' root
"At any rate 1 have known of se
vere catarrhal headaches which were
cured by Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and
catarrhal deafuess, bay fever, asthma
and catarrh of the thrbat and stomach
speedily show great benefit after a few
days' use or the remedy, and when
is remembered how much more con
venient a tablet is than inhalers,
douches, salves and powders it is not
surprising that this new preparation
should so rapidly supplant
all oihi r
remedies for catarrh."
For the weakness and prostration
following grip there is nothing so
prompt and effective as One Minute
Cough Cure. This preparation is
highly indorsed as an unfailing rem
edy for all throat and lung troubles
ana us cany use prevents consump
tion. It was made to cure quickly
