TTIHIE ROCK ISLAND- ARGUS
The Labor day races which wertt
pulled oft by the Island City Boating
association yesterday afternoon proved
the best and most Interesting that
have ever been given by the clubhand
the large numbers who thronged the
banks on this 6ide of the river were
well satisfied with them. There were
four races, two speed races, one handi
cap and a novelty race. The feature
race of the day w the second one,
Class B, free-for-all, in wmch two fine
loving cups were the trophies. The
race was a combination of two races,
the general free-for-all and the Island
There Were Nine Entries.
The Ramser trophy was the prize for
the first boat to cross the line and the
Argus trophy was the prize for the
first boat belonging to the Rock Island
club to finish, and it fell to a local
speedster to win, the boat, the Mallard,
owned by C. L. Beardsley, winning the
race irom au corapeuiurs. me tuuiooi
was 10 miles and was maae in min
utes and 25 seconds by the winner.
The Midget of Davenport (afterwards
disqualified) was second, the Scamp
III. of Davenport, third and the Perfex
of Moline, fourth. The Midget, it was
found, was not owned by a boat club
owner and was not being run by mem
bers of any boating club, and so it was
ruled out of all races.
Scamp III. ffai Handlcappea.
The Scamp III., known to be the
fastest 22-foot boat in the west, if not
In the country, did its racing yester
day with only two of its four cylinders
tn commission. The other two had
been Injured recently and the cylinders
and pistons had been removea. ieaviuS
Oie case open. The engine, of ctmse,
developed less than half Us usual
power, but even at that the Daven
port boat ran the fastest of any of the
boats in the harbor and had it not
been for additional engine troubles and
a poor start, it might easily have won
The first race of the afternoon was
for boats under 22 feet in length and
the Scamp III. took that easily over a
field of seven starters. The time was
15:59. The disqualified Midget finished
second, the Imp of Davenport third,
and the Perfex of Moline fourth.
The I. C. B. A. handicap," which
another splendid cup was the prize,
was won by the Richard B. The Mal
lard finished second, the Nawahada
third and the Jewell II.? fourth. The
winner's actual time was 20:36.
Lenoa Race Good.
The "lemon race," third on the pro
gram, supplied no end of amusement
T,a. mta.tors. The contestants
tA air. fervnia to the iudges boat
while another launch went up the river
throwing air-tight cans of small size
or, ifft. The obiect of the race
was to Bee which boat could collect
the most of these cans. At the shot
of the gun the contestants had to start
their engines and take up their work.
Some aimed straight np the river and
took everything within their reach.
Some tried to zig-zag around after the
cans and several nearly fell out of
their boats reaching for the elusive
prizes. When all the cans had been
picked up, It was found that Commo
dore G. A. Jencke. In the Myrtle, had
secured 18; R. E. Snow, In the El Cap
itan, had the same number, and Her
man Sieghartner. in the Josephine, had
11 and Charles Kolls, in the Nawa
daha, had 7. The two high men drew
lots for first prize and Snow won. His
reward was 15 gallons of gasoline. Tne
prize for Commodore Jencke was 10
gallons of gasoline.
