Two young men aspiring to follow
in the footstejm of IJuoe Wnddell. had
their ambitions chilled at the Koek LI
and baseball park yesterday after
noon. It required but two innings for Du
buque to satisfy Womack that he was
laboring tinder a delusion, if he
thought there was any deception in his
pitching. Henderson, a big-boned boy,
who delivers from the left hand, was
chased to the high timber in the third
inning. lie was making an awful
mess of the job that had been entrust
ed to him. When not allowing hits
he was cither issuing transportation
or jabbing the batters in the ribs.
It was the banner slugging ui:itch
of the season, the visitors winning by
the narrow margin of one score. Af
ter failing to talley for lie succes
sive innings the Colts showed signs of
returning life in their half of the
ninlh and hammered in three runs,
jus.t one short of a tie.
Vaudlue Gum After Hageny.
The hits were 13 to H in favor of
the Hinesites, who gave a rugged field
ing exhibition, but evened up on their
work with the stick. The Colts had
three errors ami did any amount of
booting of the ball on the isilleld.
Hagerty. the rowdy covering third for
the visitors, barely escaped an as
sault with a bat in the hands of Ynn
iline in the third inning. Trouble was
prevented by interference of other
members of the Koek Island team.
iiile there was no call for violence,
Hagerty should have been put out of
the game for his rowdy trick in at
tempting to hold Vandine when he
started home from third base. The at
tention of the umpire was called to
the performance, but he ignored the
protest of the I!ock Island players.
However, Hagerty was admonished by
Manager llines to cease his dirty
tactics and play the game according to
regulations. Hagerty is another Mtil
Janey. He is ii fair player, and can
be amusing in addition to doing well
his part in the game, but he carries his
capers to the point where they are dis
gusting to the audience. He never
passes a chance to resort to a low
trick, once throwing the ball toward
the bleachers when he' was at first
and starting for second. The nnrpire
sent him back. He should have been
benched. . It is hoped llines will
either instruct Hagerty to improve
his diamond manners or leave him be
hind the next swing around the cir
cuit. He certainly is in bad stand
ing with the fans here.

Ordinance for Vacation of Strip of
Fi-st Avenue Laid Over
LEGAL OPINIONS TO BE HAD
City Should More Slowly la Voting
Away ofRlfer Front
The city council last evening devoted
a special meeting to consideration of
an ordinance presented by the Daven
port, Koek Island & Northwestern
Kailway company for the vacation of
that portion of the river front occu
pied by its tracks and depot property
between Thirteenth and West Seven
The objection was raised that it was
not secifically stated how far the
grant sought was to extend, and there
was no assurance that the city would
not be voting away rights that would
block other railroads that might be
knocking for admission in future
The aldermen took a recess to ex
amine the blue print that accom
panied the ordinance, and when the
council reassembled the company pre
sented the ordinance amended so as to
include only that portion of First av
enue on which are located the depot
improvements, or 300 feet in length
and 150 feet in width. The ordinance
went over under the rules. Aid. L. V.
Eckhart stating that he was opposed
to Hie vacating of streets on princi
ple, but if he ditl finally decide to sup
port the measure lie wanted to be
fully informed on the aspect of the
Action of Oonncll la Wine.
The council acted wisely in adopt
ing this course. As The Argus sug
gested the other night, a matter in
volving so much of importance should
not be hastily considered. It was the
first question of import that came be
fore the new council, aud The Argus
is gratified to note the stand taken by
Aid. J. P. Sexton, from the Fourth
ward, which was that the city should
hesitate before deeding away any
rightsalmttingon the river. The Argus
is not opposed to granting corpora
tions reasonable privileges, and depre
cating, as it has so often said it does,
the disposition of eertain individuals
in the community to disturb the Dav
enport. Hock bland & Northwestern
depot and station rights on the river
front, it nevertheless feels the city
should reserve to itself not only every
inch of the levee and river front that
is left, but the opportunity to invite
other roads into Koek Island.
The vacating of streets under any
circumstances in so important' a part
of the city, especially where they lead
to or are closely parallel to
the river, is a serious question, as
such vighls, with all that 1 hey involve,
once abandoned, can never be recov
ered. The city ought to do everything
in its power to aid the Davenport,
Koek Island & Northwestern in estab
lishing the validity of its possessions
in this city, and The Argus' believes
that, were the company deprived of
any of its rights now enjoyed, it
would prove a great hardship not only
to the company, but to the public.
Public sentiment and public policy
both favor just and fair dealing
with corporations, especially where
they have acquired their rights in
good faith. The Davenport. Koek Isl
and & Northwestern passenger and
freight depots now used by the C, M.
& St. Paul are among the most at
tractive and conveniently located of
any in the city, and the company,
which is running some of the best
trains that pass through Koek Island
and has placed the city on one of its
most important divisions, should be
encouraged in every way possible and
consistent, rather than discouraged

Decatur has registered formal pro
test with President Holland against
the work of Umpire Phillips, who is
accused of deliberately handing one of
the games of the recent series to Dav
enport. "Hig Mike" Jacobs, who has been
nearly everywhere since he was taken
into fast company from Davenport,
has at hist gravitated to Evansville,
where he will endeavor to hold down
the short field.
It is surprising that a manager with
the reputation for clean playing that
llines has would tolerate urdvr any
circumstances such a rowdy on his
team as the man Hagerty has demon
strated himself to be.
Ivohly Miller is the same old speedy
boy at second. Two hits yesterday,
one the longest of the game. In five
times he missed getting to base but
once, in addition to his hits having
a pass and getting on through an er
ror in right field.
The boy in charge of the field score
board tallied 5 instead of G runs for
Dubuque in the second. When the
third score was tallied by the Colts in
the ninth many of the spectators sup
posed there was a tie. There was no
such luck. It was simply an error by
the lad who handles the big figures.
The enterpri.-dng manager of the
Central Union Telephone company at
Springfield has placed a telephone in
the press box at the grandstand in
that city for the exclusive use of the
representatives of the papers. Here's
a tip for tin; managers of the local
Chainier, Womack, Cassiboine and
Ked Clarke were given their release
this morning by Manager Thornton.
Cassiboine and Charnier were tried in
left field and Womack and Clarke
were candidates for the pitching staff.
Clarke had not been tried in any of
the schedule games, but in practice
he did not show form fast enough to
satisfy Manager Thornton.
Springfield Kegister: Harry Meek,
captain of the Kockford team, was
presented with a handsome dress suit
case, filled with roses, upon his first
appearance at the bat. The gift was
from a number of his admirers here.
Meek tried to knock a home run after
that, but he was so excited that he
put an easy one to Hankey and was
thrown out at first.
