THE J. S. IS READY
Steamer Appears for the Open
ing of Excursion Season
Will Leave for Miasoari Point Next
Week, Returning Here
The J. S. left the boatyards this
morning1 and came up to the city
levee preparatory to its run to Clin
ton tomorrow on the" first excursion
of the year. She is as clean, fresh
and dazzlingly white as new paint
can make .her. The boat has been
thoroughly overhauled and extensive
improvements have been made which
represent an outlay of $5,000. The
boat will go to Clinton tomorrow on
a round trip and next week will leave
here for Missouri points, where (she
will engage in the excursion trade
until later in the season. Some time
in June she will return to Kock Isl
and and for a portion of the summer,
at least, make trips on this section
of the Mississippi. '
An expensive piece of apparatus and
the only one of its kind on a Missis
sippi river steamer is a pump and fil
ter which will furnish absolutely pure
water for drinking1 and culinary pur
poses. A new steam cooking and
heating outfit has been installed
through which 2.000 people can be
fed in two hours. A filter has been
provided for the boiler water so that
the tubes will not scale, one of the
greatest hindrances, to the raising. of
steam river engineers have to con
tend with. Through the agency of
the filter a heat of 580 degrees" can
be obtained. All impurities and min
eral matter are filtered out of the wa
ter before it reaches the boilers.
Three new traps have been udded be
sids many otlir improvements on the
Telephone 9y em.
A complete independent telephone
system has been installed on the boat
connecting the decks and the differ
ent departments. All the staterooms
have been provided with water and,
basins, while a- bath tub and other
plumbing conveniences have been nrjd
ed. Check rooms have been placed
on the main deck and will undoubted
ly fill a long felt want. The steam
steering apparatus is also new.
Two heavy spars are conspicuous
at the bow. Thej- will serve to raise
the boat in case she. grounds. They
can be swung out to the, sides, and b3"
means of a, chain and steam tackle
apparatus the whole front of the
boat ,caji be lifted up. The spars are
44 feet. high and are made from 12x12
Capt. John Streckfus will have
charge of the boat this year as usual.
Joe Young will be pilot, while the
clerk will be Miss Lillie Streckfus, and
Joe Streckfus will serve as second
clerk. The first engineer and first
mate are Bert Davis and (iene Ferris,
Capt. Streckfus expects to be able
to handle larger crowds than ever
before with much less trouble. With
the spars there is little danger of the
boat getting onto a bar that she can
not get off alone, as happened last
summer. The boat should have a very
successful season equipped as she is,
and there is every reason to believe
that she will.
Other River BTewa.
The Gardie Eastman will leave

TALES OF THEATRE
The Kennedy players Thursday ev
ening drew a good sized audience to
the Illinois theatre, presenting "Two
Jolly Tramps." They will give their
two farewell performances at the
opera house today, presenting for the
matinee "Tom Sawyer," and the great
sensational comedy drama, "Grit, the
Newsboy'' tonight with all special
scenery and electrical effects.
- When Dan Maloney made a bid for
the heart and hand of "the Widow
Clancy he was guileless of the compli
cations and tortuous path that leads
to matrimony.. He had not read- the
learned "Kules of Courtship," or,
"How to. Win a Bride," nor was he
gifted, with the chivalry-or the grace
of Beau Brummel. He - wanted the
captivating and wealthy Widow Clan
cy, and that is all that he knew or
thought of, and the, many funny com
all " mill Ml III III I. Ill"' I
plications that resulted from his ig
norance of the polite laws that gov
ern such social proceedings is env
bodied in all their humor in "Malo
ney's Wedding,'! a hilarious comedy
drama that will be at the Illinois
theatre- Sunday night, April 26. Dan
and the jolly widow are made the vic
tims of a score of funny entangle
ments and humorous situations. Their
blunders keep an audience in the mer
riest of moods, and Dan's prosaic
ideas of the little god enpid.' would
tickle a Texas steer. A pretty-story
is unfolded- in the plot. It bristles
with tuneful singing and bright and
original climaxes and situations. The
old . and young alike can share its
pleasures, for it is wholesome, crisp
and clean. .
CAR BUJLDIH0 PLANT
IS LOCATED IN PEORIA
Peoria has secured the monster car
manufacturing plant, at the head of
which is the banking firm of Jloyt &
Co., of Cleveland. Ohio. Tha name of
the company will be the Peoria Car
company,, and articles of incorpora
tion will be secured within the next
few days. The capitalization will be
$1,000,000, and one-half of the stock
will be owned in. that city and the
other by the Cleveland gentlemen. J,
L. Jacobs, one of the promoters of
the company, and who will be general
manager of the plant, has visited, a
number of cities in this part of the
country, including Kock Island, and
received! offers from them for the lo
cation of the plant.
A Journal representative is inform
ed that the new industry would lo
cate there,, by a gentleman who will
be one of the incorporators, and who
slated that while the capitalization
will be $1,000,000. one-half of that
amount will be paid in at once. The
Journal says: "It is understood that
one well-known Peoria capitalist has
such faith in the project that he has
signed for $3.".(X)0 worth of stock
alone, and a gentleman residing in
the vicinity f Peoria has spoken for
$25,000 worth. , So far nothing has
lyen done regarding a site for the
plant, and nothing in that direction
will be dene until the organization of
the company has been completed.
"Tfie gentlemen who nri interested
in the new industry are very enthusi
astic and declare that it will be the
greatest advertisement Peoria, ever
had. The name Pullman" is known in
every nook of the globe, and this ad
vertisemeut is due to the great car
works located there, and Peoria will
be as well-known through the agency
of her car works in the course of a
few years. The demand for equip
ment is very great at .the present
time, and the new comjmnyis assur
ed of orders enough to keep the plant
going for a year as soon as it is ready

upon receipt of which the proper
blanks, etc., will be furnished them to

Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident is narrated by
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, as fol
lows: "I was in an awful condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue, coated, pain contin
ually in back and sides, no appetite,
growing weaker day by day. Three
physicians had given me up. Then I
was advised to use Electric Bitters.
To my great joy the first bottle
made a decided improvement. I con
tinued their use for three weeks, and
am now a well man. I know they
robbed the grave of another victim."

DICKEY'S STICK WORK A FEATURE
Team Comes Home Today to Play
Keturn Game With Daven
Iowa City, April 25. Manager Don
nelly gave three of his twirlers a try
out yesterday. Case started in and
pitched the first four innings, Smith
relieved him and finished up to the
eighth and Cadwallader finished the
game. Case's pitching was gilt-edged,
only two hits being made off him.
Donnelly- took a day- off and put Doll
in his place at center field, (iray was
able to get into the game again today,
his injury not handicapping him se
verely. Graham, Dickey and Schmidt
did some heavy stick work, Schmidt
knocking a three-bagger, which wns
stretched into a home run by the
slow fielding of the ball. Dickey had
five hits; to his credit with a two-bagger
and a three-bagger.
Schmidt caught in fine style again,
making stveral hard running catches
of foul balls.
Slow Balls Pnszlers.
Sutherland's slow balls were rather
puzzling for some of the players, ex
cept in the second, when every man
up got a hit.' After that he settled
down and pitched a steady game.
For the 'varsity, Melsner at short
did some first class playing, not an
error being charged to his credit.
Montgomery behind the bat. and
Seerly at third also did good work.

Closw at Inwa City Today.
The Kock Island'players will close
their series at Iowa City today and
this evening they will arrive in the
city to meet Davenport on the dia
mond across the river tomorrow.
The managers of both teams have had
the opportunity to test their mater
ial quite thoroughly and the best men
will be put in tomorrow's game with
the result that the fan will be given
an opportunity to get a very close line
on the relative merits of the two ag
gregations. Monday afternoon the local team
will meet, the Peoria Western league
team at the Twelfth street park.
Davenport Get Another Tttmmlnr.
Davenport received another trim
ming yesterday afternoon at the
hands of Sioux Falls, the latter win
ning a big lead in the final inning.
The result is attributed to the pitch
ing of one Wilson, a- member of Man
ager Hayes' numerous staff, who will
probably get his paper in conse
quence. Wilsxin was put in .to pitch
for-the last three innings, ami Sioux
Falls fell on him for eight runs, and

Three College Games.
The Augustana baseball team will
open its season next week with three
games on the home grounds. The
first will be with Gcneseo Collegiate
Institute Monday morning at 10
o'clock, the next with Lombard Wed
nesday afternoon and the third with
Monmouth Saturday afternoon. The
college boys have been practicing
steadily ajid have made a very good
showing under tlie. coaching of Walt
Bar shall Pointers.
The showing that Iowa City has
been making in the series with Kock
Island ha not discouraged the man
agers, as the following press dispatch
from that city indicates:
Iowa City, April 25. The showing
of the Iowa baseball nine in the
gam en with the Itock Island league
team this week has been quite en
couraging despite th fact that the
'varsity has every day.-been more or
less, smothered in the niaiter -of
scores. Every new candidate for a
position will be given a chance to
play in Iris position before the. week
is out, which accounts for the large
scores. A fairly strong infield and
a good outfield will be made up by
the time the eollege games begin next
week. Harvey Dye, who has held a
position on the team for two years
past, will hardly be able to do so this
year, giving place to White, who is a
strong batter and a good fielder.
liockford again took second place
in a match with Ileloit at the former
city yesterday afternoon. The score
was 7 to 3.
Henry (iassV who has been playing
right field for the Decatur team has
turned himself loose and no one
knows whether he has jumped his
contract or if he intends to return.
