Ilecatur made Rock Island look
like a selling plater in five minutes
at the Twelfth street ball park yesterday-and'
when the first inning was
finished the game was over as far as
its winning or losing was concerned,
and for the balance of the contest
the audience sat much like a man
vvat-ching his house burn up. The
stick work of the Decatur lads was
something fierce to contemplate,
while the error-making proclivities of
the. locals brought, out all the misery
that was on tap !ir the .vicinity.
That first inning was the direst oc
currence ince that duy earlier in the
season when the Rockford team bat
ted around and a little more scoring
eight runs. Decatur did not do
quite that well, but they scooped up
live with Ihe assistance of Rock Isl
and's ragged work.
A KeadJuHted I.lueup.
The Rock Island team presented a
new front with (Jreen back at short,
Graham in left field. Smith, the new
man, at second succeeding Callahan
in the first, ami Dickey on first.
The result does not seem to have lren
very satisfactory according to 'the
story the score hoard tells. Smith
made his bow with a triple and a
score, and also two errors. How
ever it may have been the fault of the
company he is keeping, for evVn Man
ager Donnelly registered in the "bum
play" column. Case sturck out six
men and gave but on- base on lialls..
Decatur, however, cleaned up 12 hits,
four in the first inning alone. Kill was
luckier and had Rock Island guessing
most of the time and held the men
down to seven hits.
A Had Start.
Decatur went, at it with a rush and
for the first inning fairly had the
locals off their feet. Thornton, first
up, was caught at first on Yandine's
throw, but II. Walter got a horrible
revenge with a long, high three-bagger.
Wright singled and the first tal
ly came in. Wright was called out for
running in-to the ball, letting McFar
land down to first. R. Walter lo
cated first on Callahan's error, and
(ireen likewise aided Kuhn. Krebs
singled and everybody came home
when the ball was returned from the
field somewhere lie t ween first base
and the home plate. O'Connor caught
the contagion and on his single Krebs
scored the fifth run. Kul was caught
at first retiring the side.
More Scores for Iterator.
In the second Krebs two-bagger
scored II. Waiver and McFarlondr who
had been assisted about- the bags by
yellow playing. In the fourth Wright
got to base on Green's error and
scored on Kuhn's two-bagger. In the
fifth Thornton hit and scored on
Wright's single. Rock Island's first
run was made in the fifth. Smith hit
ting a 'triple and running in after Van
dine's caught- fiy. In the seventh Dick
ey's hit scored O'Leary and Vandine
who had singled. Decatur added the
tenth run in the ninth inning, O'Con
nor scoring on balls by running home
while IL. Walter was being caught at

and is certain to be a losing one

PETEB HANSON AND J. SOHILLINGEB
i;cti Haa Done , Particular Work
Longer . Than Average
Next Tuesday evening, June 30, The
Argus Faithful Service contest closes.
That is, no further entries may be
mat'ie after that time and the judges
will be announced and will at once
examine, into Ihe evidence submitted
with a view to making the award as
soon as possible of the gold watch
t lit successful party is to receive.
In addition to those who have been
mentioned from time to time in con
nection with the contest there re
main two whose terms of service are
of a length that renders them impor
tant factors in deciding to whom the
watch is entitled to go. One of the
two is .Jacob Sehillinger. of this city,
the long-time employe of the Coal
Valley Mining company, and the oth
er l'eter Hanson, ;f Moline, who has
been for many years connected- with
the Rarnard & Leas Manufacturing
company. The judges, when the mat
ter, is placed in their hands, will in
all probability require ail'!it ional
facts concerning the terms of service
of several of the oldest employes and
it is not unlikely that Haws will de
velop that will determine the contest
differently from the way in which the
evidence now in appears to indicate it
will be decide!. Among those now
entered there are three or four who
ail appear to have nearly equal
chances for the prize and others may
qnter before '1 uesday exening that
will alter matters entirely.
Jw-l SrhllllnKvr. -
Jacob Sehillinger, though 7- years
of age. is still in the employ off the
Coal Valley Mining company with
which he haw been connected since
September, lhf-0. His first work for
the company was done in August,
1S.V.), and he continued from then un
til in April, lsOO, in the employ of the
company. From April till September,
tsCii), he was ctherwist engaged. From
the latter tlate, however, Mr. Sehil
linger claims continuous employment
at the various kinds of manual labor
necessary in the operation of the
company's business.- A great portion
of his time has been spent in deliver
ing coal to city customers, and figures
giing the amount of coal he has
handled would make interesting read
ing could they be produced. It would
seem that he is entitled to the claim
of Inning handled more black dia
monds than any other-iuan in Rock
Island. Mr. Sehillinger',' home is at
St! Twenty-first street.
Peter Hanson's term of employment
as machinist for the Rarnard A Leas
Manufacturing company on the face
apjHars to have, been a longer period
than that of Mr. Scillinger's connec
tion wilh the Coal Valley Mining
company. Mr. Hanson claims
to have been connected with
the company for which he is still
working, since in June. thus
making his term of employment 4.1
years. An unusually strong constitu
tion has enabled Mr. Hanson to con
tinue activity at his life's work long
after the period when the average
man retires to enjoy an earned rest.
Mr. Hanson's home is at 11S Fourth

If any one in Rock Island wants
tangible proof of the fraud and jol
bery that has been perpetrated o
the people through the post office de
partment. 'as is being revealed by the
investigation going on in Washing
ton, all he needs to do is to inspect
ami compare the two mail boxes lo
cated on opposite corners of Eigh
teenth street and Second avenue right
here in this city. The one tin the
southeast corner is of . the old time,
serviceable and substantial kind,
made of good stutT and a sample of
the way the government, as. a rule
tloes ihings. Hut. mark the contrast
with the box on the northeast corner.
It is a sheet iron affair, so cheap in its
appearance and composition that one
might almost make a dent in it with
his fist, and certainly not a safe de
pository in any sense. This last de
scribed box. is one of those that is be
ing went out all over the country
of late .under the contract in the
supply department. These tin boxes
are, the worst sham that, has been
palmed olT on the department since
the days of embalmed beef. Look at
them for yourself.

As this "popular holiday approaches
it brings to mind the terrible strug
