POSTPONED GAME TOMORROW.
Rock Island at Davenport.
A hit by Ruby with Lundin on third
wen a 14 inning game in the Davtnport
park between the Islanders and the
Riversides yesterday afternoon, the fin
al score being 3 to 1. Sweeney hit
scoring Carlisle, which made the one
more count than was necessary to win
the same, as the Davenporters did not
score in their half.
It was a fast game and something of
a pitchers' battle. The hits were held
down well during the nine innings

game Itaker struck out 10 men, whii
Lundin struck out six. Lundin gav
only one pass up to the extra inning
and after that gave another. Bake
With ihf Islanders bumping the
bumps and the Riversides ahead o

Davenporters were able to muster ui

on the part of the fans on the other
side of the rivtr did not work out uuti

Reno. New, July 4. Marvin Hart, of
Iuisville, won from Jack Root, of
Chicago, yesterday afternoon in the
12th round of a broiling battle.
The knockout came like a thunder
bolt, as clean a finishing wallop as was
ever delivered within four ropes. With
both men plugging along, fighting the
sun as well as each other, but with
neither having any decided advantage,
Hart shot his right around in u semi
circle. Root's stomach was unprotect
ed. The crafty song writer was off his
watch. Into Hoot's stomach muscles
sank the heavy fist of the big Ken
tucklan. Root doubled like a pair of
scissors. His knees gave way and he
sank to the mat, his face contorted
with agony, his whole body writhing
and quivering with pain.
He reached his arm up for the ropes
like a blind man reaching out into
darkness for he knows not what. His
fingers clutched the ropes ami then
gave way from sheer weakness, ami
he rolled over on the canvas.
Men Unfile Uewperately-
The fight opened with both men

Hart became angered at the infighting

quent, and. although the agreement was
that there was to be a clean break.
both men fought viciously with short
arm blows every time they came to
gether. Hart striking for the kidneys
while Root smashed at the stomach.
Before the end of the fourth round
both men were sweating profusely and
Hart's right eye was almost closed.
Root seemed to suffer most from the
altitude, breathing with his mouth
open. He spat blood every time he
went to his corner, having received sev
eral vicious blows in the mouth. Sev
eral times he was carried to the ropes
by the furious rushes of Hart, who re
peatedly lost his head during the fight
ing in the clinches, and Referee Jef
fries was compelled to break them by

when the honors rested evenly. Hart
received a heavy right ou the point of
the jaw, knocking him down. The gong
sounded before the blow was deliver
ed, but no foul was allowed, as there
was evidently no intention to violate
the rules on the part of the Chicago
At the end of the loth round there
was no Root money In sight. Root
fought viciously, but his blows lacked
steam, and, while he landed oftener
than Hart, it was apparent he could
never land a knockout.
Hart rushed his innn at every open
ing, taking lefts and rights to the body
in order to land on the heart ami kid
neys. Root clinched frequently ami
held on to his opMnent, breathing
heavily, until compelled to break.
Kin In h Cornea In Twelfth.
Both men responded with a rush at
the opening of the 12th round. Hart
led first and forced the fighting, rush
ing Root, almost Into his corner, where
each rained blows to the body. It was
luring the infighting that the knock
out came and not until Root recovered
was Its exact nature known. Root say
ing It landed at the pit of the stomach
as he led for the head with his left.

The men stepped Into the ringside
with 20 iKMinds difference in weight.
Root scaling 170, while Hart weighed
190. The feature of the fight, aside
from the battle itself, was the appear
ance of James J. Jeffries as referee
for which function the retired cham
pion received $1,000. Harry Corbett,
the stakeholder, was at the ringside
with the club's $5.ooo. which was split
on the basis of 65 per cent to the win
ner and 35 to the loser.
