filled -with cash as the result of their
work, they had their "meat hook"

Cose in the "Windy City. Saturday
night the quintet slipped In a score of
2.580, not a record or anything like
that, but sufficiently large to bring
home something over $30. Any team
score over 2,550 brings home some
of the filthy lucre this year. The team
ran into 40 splits in the game or the
score would have been much higher.
Salzmann and John Wich rolled in the
doubles and finished with l.OTS, a score
which may possibly net a little change,
though that Is not certain.
TWO UK I SINGLES.
Two of thtr bowlers came home with
some of the single man money. Salz
mann rolled 572 and Oren 541, and all
that Is necessary to cop some coin in
the singles this year is 540. Salzmann
led off with a foul in his first game,
and that kind of sent him up into the
skies or his score would have tx-cn bet
ter. He was rolling after a bowler who
persisted In wearing rubber-soled
shoes. Hence, the alleys were not
quite slick when tlie bowler had finish
ed. Salzmann started in the first
frame and left up the 10 pin. In shoot
ing for the spare, he did the fade-away
tilde down the alley. He made the
base all right but the foul was callel
anil he was out 10 pins. After that
lie was a little leery of the alleys. None
of the others except Oren made as
much as 5ni.

down to defeat before the greater

Saturday afternoon in the presence of
a large crowd at James Coffroth's
The fight was one of the fastest and
bloodiest ever seen between good fight
ers here. Using his extra 11 pounds
of weight to advantage all the time,
Murphy wore Attell down, and the
20th round found Abe desperately tired
and covered with blood at the waist
line, pounding away at Murphy's stom
ach, while the New Y'ork boy tried in
vain to put enough steam behind his
punches to Abe's unprotected jaw to
stretch him on the canvas. Referee

Murphy rushed across the ring at
the gong and put Attell against the
ropes lu his own corner. He beat
down Abe's guard and rained rights
and lefts on his unprotected face and
jaw. The crowd, howling for a knock
out, climbed on the seats and urged
Murphy on. Attell suddenly shook his
head, jumped aside, shook Murphy
with a left to the wind and put him
against the ropes in the same corner
with a shower of sturdy punches which
Murphy could neither dodge nor block.
From then on to the 20th, when At
tell had desperate work to avoid a
knockout, the crowd was with the He
brew almost to a man.
Attell showed few flashes of his old
time style cf hitting and getting away
but was cheered to the echo when
ever he quit swapping punches and
set .to work to outbox Murphy. The
ninth round brought the crowd to its
feet as Attell, dancing around Mur
phy, pumped in blow after blow to the
stomach, right and left, while Murphy
fanned the air.
Abe was far in the lead at the 10th
round, although the bulkier opponent
never was more than momentarily in
distress. Both fighters rested from the

has been matched with Carl Brown of
Waterloo for a finish wrestling match
to be staged at the Illinois theatre,
March 2L An effort was made by
wrestling promoters to secure Nick
Collins of Chicago, but when the op
portunity presented itself to Becure
Slaymaker, it was grasped and Col
lins was put Into the discard for this
match. Slaymaker is close to the
weight of Brown 154 pounds, and
from all reports of his prowess, he pos
sesses as much skill and strength as
the Waterloo grappler. He has many
a scalp attached to his belt and he is
confident that he can turn the Water
looan's career aside from the path of
roses that it has traversed thus far.
Slaymaker was in a match at Sabula
last week and defeated a man who was
10 pounds heavier than he.
WANT TO SEE BROWN.
The Albany lad has never wrestled
before a Rock Island assemblage, but
has been on the mat in Mollne and
should prove popular. Since last Wed
nesday's match between Brown and
"Cyclone" Tommy Thompson, Rock Is
land fans are anxious to see Brown in
astion again. In addition to the main
go, there will be two preliminaries,
and they promise to be up to the stan
dard of the past matches.
BILLY NEAL TO PLAY
WITH THE THREE EYE
Billy Neal, erstwhile Islander
pitcher and more recently of Augusta
in the South Atlantic league, has de
cided to remain in this section of the
country this year and play in the
Three-Eye league. He has secured
his release from Augusta. The man
agers of Decatur, Dubuque and Dan
ville have all made offers to Billy and
he will probably accept one of them,
most likely the Danville proposition.
The south does not agree with Billy
rnd he never strikes his gait there.

OIL BURNING ENGINE
DOING SERVICE HERE
The lack of motive power for local
use In handling the enormous freight
shipments which are going east and
west over the Rock Island has caused
the road to press into service one of
its converted oil burning engines of
the type which is being turned out at
the Silvis shops for use in Texas. Sev
eral of these have already been sent
there for service, and engine No. 2200
was ready to go when the officials de
cided to use it here for a time. An oil
expert from Texas instructed two crews
regarding the peculiarities of oil as a
fuel, and Saturday the work commenc
ed. The locomotive was busy all day
aiding freights in getting up the grade
out of Davenport. It is the first oil
burner to operate here. It is efficient
and practically smokeless.

CITY TO VOTE ON
Advent of Moving Picture Show
Held Responsible for Sit
uation at Bloomington.
COUNCIL REFUSES TO AID
Fifteen Hundred Sign Petitions Ask
ing Submission of Question at
Bloomington, 111., March 11. For
the first time in Illinois, Blooming
ton voters will express their views at
the polls upon the question. of open
ing the theatres and other amuse
ment houses on Sunday. Special bal
lots will be provided at the regular
city election in April for the pur
pose. Sentiment appears divided al
Bloomington always has been re
garded as a model town from the
standpoint of the moralist. Only the
cigar stores, restaurants, ice cream
parlors and drug stores are open on
Sunday and baseball is prohibited in
side the city limits on the Sabbath.
The comparatively recent advent of
the moving picture shows is said to
be respnislble for the alleged change
in public sentiment.
1.50O ASK VOTE.
Proprietors of the 5-cent theatres
claim their patrons wish to go to this
amusement on Sunday. Failing to
obtain the passage of a favorable or
dinance and being threatened with
prosecution if they attempted to open
on Sunday, the proprietors of the
5-cent houses decided to submit the
question to the voters in order to
convince the aldermen that a major-1
ity favored the open Sunday. Fif
teen hundred names were signed to a
petition asking for a ballot.
The council consulted legal author
ities and finally obtained advice of
Attorney General Stead, who said he
knew of no provision of the law!
which prevented the submission of
the question under the public policy
act now on the Illinois statute books.
Mr. Stead stated that he believed the
regulation of theatricals and shows
came under the head of "public pol
icy," and, although the question was
novel one, he believed the voters
had a right to express their senti
ments. Mr. Stead further stated, however,
that the expression of the people was
merely suggestive and not mandatory
and that the council had the power
to respect or . ignore the expression
as it saw fit.
FEAR WIDE-OPEN TOWN.
Leading citizens believe the sub
mission of this question will be fol-
owed by similar petitions upon
other subjects which ordinarily have
escaped the voter at the ballot box
