In- speaking of the success of so
many Illinois university students as
ball players. Cook said:
"The school does not solicit the pat
ronage of these players, as one would
naturally suppose from the fact that
so many good ball players Lave been
turned out there. Baseball ahvays has
been a leading sport at Illinois for various-reasons.

baseball in any of his men he is sure
to bring it out. The grounds and

the- fact that the weather is suiiable
for the playing, and the result is that
Illinois has produced teams that have
won from semi-professional, minor, and
major league teams.

"Jake Stahl is the most noted of the
players that has been turned oat by
Illinois. We were graduated together
in 1903, and both tried for the team in
1333. At tnis time stani was not so
proficient and failed to make the team

and did not make the team in 1S93. He
later made good, went to Baltimore and
then to Washington with Stahl, but

the city yesterday alternoou about 5:

to the horse's flight. It cut through
between the Burlington depot and the

this shape the tracks were crossed and
the horse cut through a vacant lot at
the rear of the Twentieth street build'

SETTLED THE KID
Paddy Nee Knocked Farmer Out
in Ninth Round at
BIG CROWD SEES THE MATCH
Climax to Good Program Put on
Standard Club at Lahrmann's
Paddy Ni-e, of Pittsburg, knocked
out Kid Farmer of Peoria in the 9th
lound of the prettiest and fastest ring
contest ever pulled off in Davenport
last night. The end came suddenly
and sensationally after eight rounds of
fierce mixing in which the kid had held
his blocky antagonist even in exchange
of blows and "Saved himself from se
vere punishment by clever blocking
and ducking. The entire evening's bill
put on by the Standard club at Lahr
mann's hall was good and bore the
mark of genuineness.
The go between Nee and Farmer
was for blood from the beginning. The
men were said to weigh 130 pounds
each but the Phlladtlphlan looked 'at
least 10 pounds the heavier. He is
dark and stocky with a large head and
a fierce ring expression that alone
would win over some antagonists.
Farmer, on the other hand, is frail of
build with a small head and face. It
was as if a bulldog had been pitted i
against a shepherd and the battle bore '
out the comparison. i
Nee was the aggressor every inch
of the way, though Farmer met him at
all the corners and rolled into him with
rights and lefis handed straight over
that seemed sufficient to settle any or
dinary mortal. But Paddy generally
succeeded in blocking the vicious ones
and those that reached him never caus
ed him to back up. Farmer fought
straight for the face, having evidently
learned in previous battles with Nee
that this was his only hope. Nee, on
the other hand, playtd strong for the
stomach. The Peorian was so shifty
that he could seldom be found abo:tt
the head with anything of a dangerous
nature, the hooks and Jabs that landed
The punch that did the business land
ed on the solar plexus after a series of
clashes in which the Kid had appar
ently had a trifle the best or the argu
ment. That there was rn element of
iccidt-nt about it there is rcarcely. a
doubt, but it is equally certa n that,
while Nee had the punch to settle the
issue at any time. Farmer was not phy
sically able to win with a clean knock
out. Soon after the ninth round open
ed, the men closed in and Paddy's right
ot through. Farmer dropped like a log
nd took the count. When the Kid
came up he covered for the onslaught
that he knew was coming, but as Nee
sailed in. instead of clinching and trying
to save himself he started to wildly ex
change wallops. In his weakened con
dition it was not long before Nee
again found his weak spot and Farm
er's hands dropped and the Philadel
phian had only to hammer his man on
the jaw till the Kid finally went down
and was counted out.
Next in point of interest was the
Ground preliminary between Stock-
ngs Kelley, of Philadelphia and Jack
Ryan of Chicago. The men fought at
130 pounds. Kelley had rather the best
of it all the way, though at times Ryan
made matters interesting. Once or
twice Kelley thought he saw a chance
to put his man out but in each in
stance Ryan's shiftiness saved him.
The bout was scientific and the crowd
approved of the referee's decision in
favor of Kelley.
More fierce was the go between
'Shine" Reed of Freeport and Kid Brew
er of Ottumwa. This pair went after
each other hammer and tongs and the
gong at the end of the first round sav
ed Reed from a knockout. In the sec
ond and succeeding rounds he came
hack strong and put up a plucky ex
hibition', though neither had enough
steam in the latter part of the match to
do the other serious harm. Brewer
was given the decision at the end of
the eighth round.
Nejsrom Aniline llie Crowd.
The opening number on the program
was a battle royal between five colored
men. Instead of putting them all in the
ring at once as announced, but two
vere matched at a time. This feature
was characterized by amusing capers
rather. than hard slugging and the
crowd enjoyed it immensely,
The crowd was one of the largest

in the tri-cities, the hall being packed
almost to suffocation. , Malachy llogan
