Davenport made it three straight
from "Dubuque by winning an exciting
game after two were out in the ninth
inning. Hines tried Osteen, just from'
the south, at short, and his batting
was a feature of the game, bringing
in three, runs. Weisbrodt, the Daven
port pitcher, was also in his first pro
fessional game, but was very effec
tive. Kinlock, Fleming and Jameson
made sensational catches and the
game was the best seen on the home
grounds this year. .Tones was put to
bat for Weisbrodt in the ninth and
made the single that started a bat
ting rally, Ives and Hackett following
with lucky hits and Crockett batted
in the winning run. The score:

Team Arrives .
Manager Donnelly and the ball team
arrived from Bloomington this morn
ing ready for the opening game here
this afternoon. The men are sore in
spirit, but not in body, ond expect to
make a good showing in the home se
ries. With one accord the umpirgs are
denounced as being unfair and preju
diced. According to the men, the
team has been a victim of yellow um
piring in every game, notwithstanding
which fact a single disastrous defeat
was met, and no. game was lost by
more than one score.
. Manager Donnelly is outspoken in
his condemnation of Umpire Farn
hara for his assault on Gray and the
rank treatment he accorded the Rock
Island team. He stated that through
out the game Tuesday the umpire was
unable to properly discharge his du
ties. The trouble started when Mullaney,
of Bloomington. with the score tied
in the ninth inning and three men on
bases, clearly allowed himself to be
struck with the ball. Umpire. Farn
haui allowing him his base, thus
ending the game. Rock Island's man
ager says he. Gray and others of the
Rock Island team came in to protest.
Gray, he says, did not strike' Farn
ham, as alleged, merely putting his
hand on the other's shoulder while
arguing with him. Gray finally left
the group and went over to the bench.
Farnham also started to leave, and
just as the Rock Island team thought
he was gone, he came running back.
Gray was walking along with a bat
in his hand. Before Gray had any
idea of what was to take place Farn
ham struck him. The blow laid the
man out, and he had to be taken to
the hotel in a rig.

BIG CLINTON BURGLARY
MYSTERY HAY BE CLEARED
It will be remembered that the resi
lience of L. E. Fay, of Clinton, la.,
was burglarized last fall and
$1,S00 worth of jewelry was
stolen. The robbery was a most
sensational one, Mr. Fay being
awakened while the robbers were in
the house, but being unable to pre
vent their getting away ith the
plunder. The case was similar to
others that occurred about the same
time and since then in Iowa and Illi
nois, and it has all along been sus
pected that the heavy jobs done in
this city were the work of the same
With the arrest of George E. Bur
ner, who was caught and punished
for a burglary committed in Daven
port some months ago, and who wtis
recently captured at Clinton on sus
picion of being implicated in the Fay
burglary, evidence has come to light
that threatens to expose the opera
.tions of the entire gang, and to bring
at least a part of the members to
justice. Barrier has made a confes
sion in which he implicates W. C.
Rogers, known as "Omaha Kid" in the
i"ay burglary. 'Rogers is in
jail in Council Bluffs charged
with murder, and one or two others
suspected of having been associated
with him and Burrier have been
placed under watch. Mr. Fay is lead
ing -the investigation in person and
further developments are looked for.
