Toiling and erspiring as ever,
Stauffer ye.sterd.a3- proved the stum
bling: block for the locals. He fanned
but one man but he gave no passes
and only one man was hit by pitched
ball. Only twice was he touched for
safeties. It (was his steadiness that
won the day. Twice for the locals a
hit would have saved a shutout, and
at almost any stage It seemed that
if a start could have been made the
ending might have been different
But we failed to pet the bulge.
As it turned out the visitors won
the contest in the first inning- and the
entire game was a rather listless one
as is usually the case when either
side is unable to hit. In fact the
audience was strongly disposed to
criticise the locals for their lack of
ginger. Citse was effective in the
box for the locals and the four hils
he permitted ought to have given
but one run. Rock Island, however.
earned nothing and was unable to get
anything on errors.
Umpire Hickey, who was ordered
here from Terre Haute to take the
place of Collins, tlid not put in an
appearance, having been unable to
make the connections. Accordingly,
Smith, for' Rock Island, and Reising-
er. for Davenport, jointly did the act.
They did it with general satisfac
tion, too, and "the absence of the
roasting that the umpire has been
coming in for of late was a welcome
feature. "The crowd was large for a
week day and( the local rooters were
prepared to root if there had been
any good opportunity for an effective
demonstration. The ladies took ad
vantage of the day and were out in
As before stated the first inning
told the sad story. The misplays in
that part of the game came like a
dash of cold water, being rather more
effective in suppressing enthusiasm
than an ordinary rainstorm would
have uecn. Davenport batted first
and as usuai, Nill got a base, which,
as happens all too often, means a
run. He gave Hill at short a hard
chance and that player, after making
a pretty and clean top, spoiled it by
throwing wide to Wright. The latter
stopjed the ball, but could not hold
it. Smith was next tip and he got
his crazy bone in front of a stiff "in"
curve, which caused him to ma"ke
wry faces. Weihrauch got a hit that
brought in both runs, but "Holy
Smoke" was caught trying to stretch
the drive into a 2-bagger. Jacobs,
the heavy hitter, swiped at the air,
and although King waited for four
wide ones, Crockett retired him at
second on .a fielder's choice.
The third started with Xill once
more at the top of the batting list
and he hit the ball. Smith sacri
ficed him on by driving a grounder
down to Wright. Then Jacobs made
good and the third and last run was
made. King retired the side on a
foul. In the ninth Weihrauch drove
out a nice 3-bagger, but the next
three men were out and he died on
base. Score :

TERRY IS HELD FOE "
ASSAULT ON SCHMACHT
Henry Terry, colored, who struck
x.ernian Schmacht, the ice man, with
a brick a week ago, was given a pre
liminary hearing yesterday evening
before Magistrate Johnson on the
charge of assault with a deadly wea
pon. From the character of the evi
dence the magistrate decided to hold
the defendant, and accordingly his
bond was fixed at $300. The security
was furnished and Terry was re
leased. Poisoning the System.

WHAT MAY HAPPEN
When the People' of "the Old
Town" Get What They Think

The possibilities that lie within
reach of those who own, or imagine
they own, so much of Rock Island as
is included in "the old town," when
they g?t. seriously down to the busi
ness of asserting their heaven-born
rights and prerogatives, are as limit

company .iiad really no business to
put its freight and passenger depots
on the levee, and if the Union Klec
trie Telephone & Telegraph company
has no right to lay its conduits down
the alleys of "the old town," without
consulting individuals who are spon
sors for "the old town,' it appears
that there is no good reason why the
people of the section lying between
Seventeenth and Tenth streets and
norm or four in avenue cannot, go
back to first principles and enjoy a
retwm of the blessings of old when
ever they make "up their minds to do
Mo More Street Cars.
Think how pleasant it would be
once more to be without the nerve-
wearing whirr of the electric ears
and the inharmonious jangling of the
gongs. Xn cars to wait for and miss,
and no tracks to occupy the middle of
the streets, and no railroads on the
river f-ont over which the exaspera
ting machines of commerce snort as
they bring in and carry out passen
gers and freight, all in the interests
of "the old town" as well as the city
Xo need, either, to be longer bored
by telephone service. Think what a
relief it would be to throw the beast
ly talking machine out into the alley
and compel -the company to take up
its poles, roil up its wires and va
moose. The electric light and power
c.ompanics, too, are only maintaining
nuisances in "the old town." There
is the danger of dropping wires and
so many tires result from bungling
jobs of wiring. Electric lights have
been shown to breed nervous disor
ders and poor eyesight, and the art:
lights on the streets only serve to
daz.le men and draw bugs. That
they are far from u success any rea
sonable citien ought to realize by
this time. So in time will say the cit
izens who own "the old town."
. Hani Water From River.
The water question is a very vexa
tious one and causes perhaps more
anxiety than any other one in the
municipal category. The people of
"the old town" will have the whole
thing" solved if they will only take
the trouble to assert their honest
rights. Just make the city tear up
its old water mains and let every
body go back to plain, wholesome
cistern water. After ruminatincr
over the proposition it really seems
strange that no one ever thought of
that plan before. If there should
ever come a dry season it would be
delightfully exhilarating exercise for
the man of the house to get up early
Monday morning and carry enough
water from the river for the sake of
the family washing.
Sewers could be treated in the
same way as the matter of water
mains. Were they not put down in
the first place without authority ' of
the people who own and govern "the
old town?" The city has no right to
usurp the absolute prerogatives of
the property holders of "the old
town" by digging holes in the streets.
Take out the pijtes, to be sure. To
permit them to remain is concealing
a nuisance, and right under the very
noses of the people of "the. old town"
at that. Think of getting ahead of
the plumber, too. Should the public
generally not assist in such an Inno
vation when the people of "the old
town" are to be especially benefited?
Then there is the man who incon
siderately flies a flag on the Fourth
of July or a kite on any other old day
without ascertaining how far heav
enward the divine right of the chosen
guardian of "the old town" may hnve
fight to govern. Such a man should
be strung up high over the heads of
the people of "the old town."
Advance In Property Valoes.
So with all the advantages that
would be gained by assertion of
rights in "the old town" after the
manner indicated property could not
fail to advance in value. Think of
what such . a commercial - establish
ment as the Market square confec
tionery by the grace of Mayor
Knox would be worth to its owner
when "the old town" establishes its
ancient rights. People will indeed
want to move in from the country
and avail themselves of privileges
that they cannot enjoy in rural dis
tricts, and many would be willing to
pay fabulous prices just in order to
own a street and an alley or half the
Mississippi river. What satisfaction
there would be, for instance, in go
ing out upon the Father of Waters in
a row boat and compelling a big raft
of logs to, be towed around you in or
der to keep its owners out of the'
clutches of the law, or of having the
captain of a steamboat that comes
puffing and tooting np the river ar
rested and soaked for trespass!
Some, of course, may be disposed
to question whether the people of
"the old town" may do all these
things, but if doubting ones will take
the trouble to make an exhaustive
study tf the situation they may find
wherewith to lie convinced. . . '
And with what reason there may
be "a hot time in 'the old town " some
MA J. TOWNSEffD TALKS
CANAL AT ROCKFORD
' Ma j. C. McD. Townsend, of Rock Is
lands arrived in the city Wednesday
evening, says the Rockford Register-
fJazette. This gentleman has charge
of the improvement of the Mississ
ippi, between St. Louis and St. Paul
under the authority of the govern
ment. Maj. Townsend spent the even
ing with repre.sentative citizens, in
eluding especially those who were ac
tive in the organization of the Rock
River Improvement association, and
the steps which led to the act of
congress for the improvement of
Rock river for slack water naviga
tion. He obtained many facts from
citizens conversant with the river, in
its , various stages, minimum floods.
and area drained.
The major referred to (Jen. Wil
son's survey of the river in 1867,
when routes for a canal from Lake
Michigan were under discussion. He
has given more attention to the Wil
son notes and papers. Maj. Town
send said the Hennepin canal and
feeder would take COO-ton barges.
Maj. Townsend made inquiry con
cerning rales for raw materials used
in Rockford as a manufacturing
city, especially iron and steel. 'He
was also given the facts presented in
the report f the committee to the
Rock river convention, at which the
improvement association was organ
ized. I a in- iiiifitiririiicai "i iiui iv i nt-i

of congress, which provides that a

them to become opportunities for

The Rock River Improvement as
sociation was" organized, in part, in
the interest of uniting the forces of
the towns, to be benefitted; one aim
being that of getting data upon the
classes and amount of traffic that
would profit by canal rates, especiul
ly raw . material. The association
will employ agencies in the various
cities in collecting facts for Maj.
Townsend along these lines.
Mr.j. Townsend was a guest of W.
A. Beale, in his electric launch on
the river this morning in company
with Mayor Hutchins and Hon. R. H.
Tinker, president of the Water
House company. He left the city at
3 o'clock this afternoon.
