Peoria, 111., Aug. 26. (Special.)
Last night began the climax to the
week's camp of the Illinois National
Guard here, when the army of the
"red," in which Company A of Rock
Island "fought," invested the city of
Peoria, defended by the army of "blue."
The army of "red" crossed the Illi
nois river 10 miles above the city on
pontoon bridges, they have driven in
outposts of the army of "blue," which
defended Peoria, covering the approach
of the remainder of their troops across
tnis pontoon with machine- guns and
field artillery, and attacked Peoria
Heights, the commanding point over
the Tity of Peoria at 10 o'clock in the
Divide at River.'
The Illinois river was the dividing
line between two hostile states, and up
from the south all last night swarm
ed reinforcements for the "blue" gar
rison in this city and the efending
force was slowly but surely driven back
upon the Heights for refuge..
The reinforcements were In command
Ut General Frank P. Wells and formed
. . . I J , 1 , f 1L. C V.
tne second Dngaue, uiciuuiujs uc om
and 4th regiments of infantry, two
squadrons of the 1st cavalry, a detach
ment of the signal corps and a battery
of automobile machine guns.
The hosts of the enemy which held
the pontoon and prepared for a "sweep
ing attack this morning were in com
mand of General Jack Foster, com
manding the 1st and 3rd brigades, one
squadron of the 1st cavalry and a de
tachment of the signal corps. This
"red" attacking army was In position
by 8 o'clock, the reinforcements from
he south about the same hour, and tha
two armies met in a general engage
ment lasting from 10 o'clock until
Fljrht Orff ltouch Ground.
A3 the attacking forces of the "red"
invaders swept over the spurs of the
bluff beyond the Country club, coming
down the valley. On account of the
rugged condition of this country the
firing was furious and long con
tinued. When these wo lines of battle reach
ed a point within 100 yards of each,
a signal gun was fired rand every
bugler gave the signal to "cease fir
ing." These maneuvers were figured out
by Lieutenant Colonel Roniayne, who
is a retired captain in the United
States army. He acted as umpiro-in-chief,
while Captain H. J. Price. 2nd
United States infantry, regulars, offi
ciated as senior umpire for the "blue"
army, and Captain John McPalmer,
15th United States infantry, regular, as
senior umpire for the "red."
