The baseball game proposed for the
benefit of Walter Crum, the injured
player, by the Rock Island and Daren
port teams, and which was prevented
by Monday afternoon's rain, is to
take place, after all, O. L. limner's
kdgington team and the Cyclones, of
this city, having come forward with
an oner to irive an exhibition so that
those who have purchased tickets will
have no occasion to complain of not
getting their money's worth.
The game will take place at Twelfth
street park Thursday afternoon of
next week, commencing at 3 o'clock.
Itruner saj s he will coine in out of
the timber with the speediest bunch
of amateurs that ever craced a base
ball diamond. IJruncr covers the left

advance that the onlv bolls that will
get past him are those that are knock
ed outside the lot. lie says all are
stars in his aggregation, ami the only
easou they are not holding positions
in the biff leagues is the magnates

that will justify them leaving their
crops to the hired hands.
K. C. Kberhart is the captain of t he-
Cyclones. He predicts that the Eclg-
ingtonians will be driven to the high
tfnamputated before the sixth inn
ing. The Cyclones have been heard
from in different sections about the
county during the reason, having
swept everything before them, includ
ing itruner s team, playing the latter
it Taylor Ridge' "Labor day. Bruner

The Decatur Review, telling of the
death of Umpire Ollie M..Conn, says:
Ollie M. Coun, umpire -it lie Three
Eye league, met w ith an .'accident
shortly before 3 o'clock Sunday after
noon and died from his wounds at 11
unlock that night. He was run ovfer
bv a street car on North Water street
and was badly mangled. ' '
The car that ran over him was the
first trailer attached to motor car No
34. The motor car" was in Charge' of
Motorman V. Ft Painter and C'onduc
tor George Nevhard. lhe first trailer
was tiii ' charge of Conductor L. II.
Boi chert and the second trailer Was
in charge of Conductor Pete Brilley
This train Was going south on Yh
ter street and was being followed by
another motor car without any trail
er attached. The rule that has always
prevailed here when cars are run in
relays is for the first section to go
straight through without stopping.
leaving t he" second section to pick up
anv passengers." the object being to
prevent! the possibility of accident by
reason of the second section bumping
into the first. ' " '
Mr. Conn was on the west side of
Water street a short distance south of
the Eldorado street crossing. It was
evident that he wanted ou the car, but
Motormau llaiutcr motioned him to
take the second section, which was
coming but a short distance behind.
From the nature of the accident ,it
seems evident he tried to catch the
rear or the Jirst car and led between
it and the first trailer.
The only person on the first section
besides the employes of the street
railway company were' Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Ruehl,- of 212 West William
street. Not one person on the train
saw just how the accident occurred.
It was all done like a flash. Conduc
tor Nevhard could onlv' sav that he
iw two hands thrown up and then
there was the shock of lhe trailel
leaving the track.
Motorman Bainter had turned to
the right to motion Conn to take the
second section and didn't see Conn
make a jump for the car. Bainter had
swung his body round to the left and
glanced back over his shoulder just
as the trailer lelt the track, ami nis
jwn conductor at thc same instant
gave mm tilt signal to srop. -eitne.
of the other street car men on board
saw the accident.
Motorman Bainter stopped the car
as quickly as possible, probably with
in sixty feet
The street car men uncoupled the
motor car and the rear trader from
the one that left the track with the
assistance of several men who hap
pened to be near they tipped the trail
er over on its side and removed the
unfortunate man. While they were
getting him out some one telephoned
for the patrol wagon, and . it ar
rived about 3 minutes a'fter Mr. Conn
was taken from the car.
The position of the body showejl
that Conn had made a heroic effort
to save himself by grabbing the axle
of the car. His left . arm was wrap-
perl around the front axle and his
head 'and shoulders were-wedged in
between the end of the axle and the
bottom of the'.ear and between the
outside of the wheel and the journal
box, so that he was under the edge of
the car and not between the rails. The
ends of the axles stick out a foot or
more past the wheels before entering
the journals, so that there is a space
between the bed of the car and .the
axle. The body was wedgerl in so
tight that it was with considerable
difficulty that lie could be removed.
The car was tilterl till the outside was
three of four feet above the rail and
was held there until" the mangled
form could be removed.
Mr. Conn was carried to lhe lawn
in front of the St. .lohn's flats. Ife
talkerl wildly, but without reason. Be
ithuiight some one was trying to kill
him. anrl he shouted "Murder!" and
"Police!" The patrol wagon arrived
almost immediately and he was placed
on a stretcher and taken to St. Mary's
hospital, where Drs. F. M. Anderson
and Will Chenowcth iittended him.

Conn's injuries were frightful and it
was almost a: certajiity that he would
die. The right arm was crushed to a
.pulp sit the elbow and the bone and
Hah vvere ground- together,, making
it necessary that the arm should be
:amputaf cd"at once. This was done and
the arme was removed just below the
shoulder.1 The left" leg was also fright
frightfully crushed at the knee and it
would also doubtless have been neces
sary to amputate it "sooner or later.
The left arm, which was wrapped
around the axle of the car, was badly
bruised and the skin was ground off
lhe" tide of his neck and from one
shoulder, and his nose and the lower
part of his face were also badly
bruised' and scratched.
Telegrams were' sent to his rela
tives and his brother, Alexander Conn,
accompanied by his mother, arrived
from Mt. Zion last night and were
with hinv from that time on till 11
o'clock when he died.
The body was' later removed from
the hospital to Dawson's undertaking
establishment and prepared for buri
al. Coroner Dawson held an inquest this
afternoon and the body will be taken
to Mt. Ziou for interment.
Ollie Conn was about 2 years old
and was one of the best known men in
the country, not only among ball play
ers, but in other circles. He had
played ball practically all his life, but
he had two other occupations at eith
er or which he would work when not
playing ball. lie was a telegraph,
operator and member of the Order
of Kailvvav Conductors, and it was his
ihtoiitiyn to go to Iowa in a couple
of weeks to take a position as opera-1
lie was also a baker and an excep
tionally ' good cook. Be would have
nken charge of the kitchen at Brv-j
an s restaurant carnival week, lie
had traveled all over the country,
working in one capacity or a not hen,
and always seemed prosperous. He
dressed well anrl looked neat all the
time. He had few bad habits. He
neve'r 'drank to excess, did not chew
tobacco, and smoked but little, lie
condut fed himself "like a gentleman,
am! had a host of friends.
He began playing baseball when a
boy and played with a number of
amateur teams, ineludiii"- Mt. Zion,
Kenncy,, Macon. Clinton, and other
small towns. He was manager of the
Clinton team one season. He played
with Decatur and then with Spring
field in the old Central league, then
with Fonsy Connolly, went to Can
ada. Then he plaved with the Loudon
ind (iuelph teams of the Canadian
league, and the next season plaved in
the Texas leajnie.
Last year President Sexton was hav
ing a hard time securing umpires for
the Three-Kye league and he marie
Conn'tt member of hlstaff of umpires
as soon as the latter returned from
Texas. Conn served the remainder of
the season and made such a good re
ord as an umpire that President Sex
ton engaged him for the season just
clo-e'l Conn during this season has
been the most popular umpire in the
league. There have been no protests
and no trouble in any game he has
umpired. He was fair ami the play
ers as. Well a 1 fie fans in every city in
the league held him in high regard.

grandparents at Fairbury.
It is somewhat strange that with so
many people' on the street no one saw
Conn just at the time of the accident.
Frank J. Hodgins, who was one of the
first to run to the assistance of Coiln
and helped remove him from under
fhe oars saw him .just, a moment be
fore 4he ' accident, tiut had turned
around and did not see him fall. He
saw Conn motion the motorman to
step, and saiv" him start for the car.
A moment later he heard the noise
made b.v the trailer as it left the track
anrl he'rnh out 'where it was and knew
someone was under the car. "After--wards

Important Steps Looking, to
RCOK ISLAND PE0P0SED TERMINAL
Franchise Aceetet t
itoclc Fall Hoarl
This week has seen important steps
taken in the affairs of two interurban
lines which are intended to be built
to Bock Island. One is the tlalesburg.
Monmouth !fc "Knelt Island anrl the
other the Dixon, Bock Falls & South
western. Monday night the (lalesburg coun
cil!' passed' an ordinance granting the
former, which is backed by what is
known as the McKinley syndicate, an
ordinance for a porio-.i of '.'( jcars,
anrl yesterday the company filed an
acceptance of the terms and a bond
to begin the construction of the Kite
within u specified time. This marks
the end of a long controversy in
which the company fijst sought, to se
cure a perpetual franchise and then
one for 50 yeirs. The council was
at first willing to grant one f;ir "0
years only.-. , .
WlllCuiDo rl. Aledo.
The coninny will first build from
(ralesburg to Monmouth, and thence
in a northwestern direction to Alerlo
iind to Hock Island. The company.
which has other lines under-way. has
15.000 tons of rails under contract, or
enough to build 150 miles of line, and
lhe line from (lalceburg to Monmouth
will be laid with this steel.
The Dixon, Bock Falls & Sonthwest
ni Monday let a contract in New
Tork City for lhe buil-.linsr of riO miles
of line connecting Dixon. Bock Falls.
Tanipico, Hooppolc, Atkinson and
Ceneseo. It will cost $1,500,000. This
is as far as the line is to go for the I
present, but the plans are to extend !
it in a year or. two to reach the tri
eiticK." The portion of the line now
contracted for is to be built within a
Coal Road at Kewanee.
The board of supervisors of Henry
.county, at its session last week, pro
vided for another electric line out of
Kewanee. with Annawan as its destin
ation. The Kewanee Mining & Manu
facturing, company has valuable coal
mines between its plant and Annawan
and the company feels that by build
ing an electric line with the power
from their Kewanee plant, they can
transport this coal to their plant ami
distribute it from that point. But the
line is not confined to the coal busi
ness, as passengers will be carried,
anrl in time a well-established inter
tirbnn line will lie in operation.
The benefits of an interurban line
in Annawan are many, anrl the people
of Kewanee rejoice that the Mining &
Manufacturing company sees fit to
build such a line. It is probable that
for their passenger service they, will
arrange with the Cambridge & ,(Ien
eseo line to handle its traffic into fhe
city from the city limits.
