President Sexton last evening ruled
upon the contest over (J. K. Hughes,
the shortstop from Aledo, that was
claimed by Manager Donnelly and by
Dubuque, iinl he decided that the
latter had the prior right, and was
therefore entitled to the player. Man
ager Rowland, it seems, accepted
Hughes' terms a day or two before
he received a proposition from Man
ager Donnelly that he was willing- to
accept, lie ha gone to join the Du

locality where good hull players ate

The Prisoner of Zen da.
One of the most pronounced succes
ses of the present theatrical season
through the east is Ernest Shipman's
magnificent production of. "The Pris
oner of Zenda." 4 Among all the re
cent romantic successes, which num-

ben not a few, Zenda gained first hon
ors. Its engagement in New York
City, which extended far into the sec
ond season, -was unprecedented m the
line of attendance, and on its triumph
al tour throughout the country the
capacities of the theatres has been
taxed almost everywhere. An excel
lent company has been engaged, still
retaining the well known romantic
actor, Harry Leighton, and further
strengthened by the clever artist, so
pleasantly remembered for artistic
excellence -ami ; engaging personality.
Miss Florence Gale.. ;
"Costumes and scenic effects are
new, novel and complete, and details
ordinarily neglected have been most
careully attended to, the result be

ment is announced for next Sunday
evening, and can well be considered
one of the best local dramatic offer
ings of the season.
CROP REPORT SHOWS
RAIN IS BADLY NEEDED
Showers occurred the first part of
the week, very light and scattering in
the northern sectionTbut'of a more
general character" -oner-liberal 'propor
tions in portions of the central and
southern districts.' Temperature was
above the seasonable average, and de
cided summer conditions obtained the
latter part of the week. Except in
portions of the central and southern
districts where the rainfall was suf
ficient to supply .the need of vegeta
tion, rain is required. Plowing and
planting are retarded ami arrested on
account of the dry condition of the
soil. More than usual labor is entail
ed in preparing corn land for plant
ing. The ground is deficient in moist
ure which affects germination and re
tards plant growth. While vegetation
in the districts where rain fell was
greatly revived and stimulated, a
great majority of correspondent
express the urgent need of rain.
Wheat in the central district has
improved under the influence of warm
weather and much needed rain, but
the average condition is still only
fair. In the southern district deterio
ration continues, caused by lack of
moisture, the Hessian fly and chinch
bugs. Some fields are already head
ing, but very short, and estimates are
already made of a greatly reduced
Oats are very uneven, an 1 the aver
age condition at this stage is some
what unfavorable. While the tempera
ture has been favorable, rainfall was
deficient in the regions of greatest
production. Where the crop is not
actually suffering for rain, it is mak
ing slow growth.
' Considerable proirress has ' been
made in preparation for corn. The
work luis. been retarded on account of
the condition of the soil. The ground
is hard, dry, lumpy, and generally in
bad condition for plowing and plant
ing. 1 laming operations in many i
caljii have been suspended until the
coming of rain.
(Srasses need rain. While meadows
and pastures in localities where rain
fall occurred show great improve
ment, the general conditiou is not
favorable. (Jrasscs arc short and
have not made a seasonable growth.
Marly conjecture with regard to in
jury of fruit, is giving way to definite
information, and prosjx-cts lieeome
more assuring with the 'advancement
of the season. Where serious injury
occurred, it was confined mostly to
the southern district. In the ccntcal
district, with the exception of grapes,
the prospects for all fruit are fair.
In the northern district the outlook
for fruit is now promising.
(lardens are backward, and need
rain. Potatoes are up and are gener
ally making a good showing.
POWER HOUSE AT BUFFALO
FOR INTERURBAN ROAD
The interurban road that the Dav
enport fc Suburban Railway company
proposes building from Muscatine to
Davenport along the bank of the riv
er must be completed by Oct. 15. This
includes about twenty-eight miles.
The portion of the construction ly
ing within the city of Davenport in
cludes 19 miles along the various
streets and this will be. built after
the line i.s completed from Muscatine
to Davenport. The contract for the
construction of the work was let to
the International Construction com
pany, of Detroit and New York. That
concern will build. not only the tracks
and power house, but will also fur
nish the. equipment for the lines and
will turn it over to the railway peo
ple completed and ready for use.
The contract calls for the comple
tion of the main line of the suburban
which extends from Muscatine to
Davenport, by the 15th of October,
and it is the intention of the promo
ters to have cars running by that
time. The construction will begin at
once and will be rushed through with
all possible speed. The power house,
which will furnish the motor power
for all the lines, will be located near
Buffalo, Iowa, and the work on it
will be commenced at the same time
as that on the road itself.

far enough to indicate that unless

will uphold the plaintiff and the man
