Btl.I. GAME FEATURE.
A ball game between the Davenport
council and a team made up from Rock
Island and Moline councils was easily
the feature of the day. The Illinois
athletes took their Iowa brethern into
camp by a score of 2 and 1, and inci
dentally covered themselves with all
kinds of glory. Ring, of the victorious
nine, pitched a classy game, holding
the visitors to five hits and striking
out 10 men.
In the evening the festivities were
concluded with a dance at the inn,
about 125 couples participating. Music
was furnished by the Criterion orches

It is a fair supposition that the class of its patrons is the best indication of the class of
merchandise which a store carries. A smart frock, a neat waist, a clever shoe will appeal
most to the girl who has smart ideas on the subject of apparel. Like begets like all the
world over, and nowhere more surely than Young & McCombs, upon which many of the
smartest young women in the tri-cities rely for exclusive apparel. Many, many of the
mothers are brought here by their daughters and they in turn bring many other ladies to shop
here because of the excellent service.

Da r row Lawyers Reported as Charg
ing Leavltt Is Feigning.
Los Angeles, Cal., July 25 It was
reported yesterday that attorneys for
Clarence S. Darrow, who is accused of
jury bribing, has complained to Judge
Hutton that Juror L. A. Leavltt was
feigning illness and asked for an im
mediate investigation by the court.
The charge was made at a confer
ence between Judge Hutton and th.
Darrow attorneys and it was freely
predicted that a substantiation of the
charge would mean a mis-trial in the
Although much secrecy was main
talned concerning the conference,
Hutton admitted a serious situation
had arisen. He said there probably
would be another conference later.
The Judge expressed the belief, how
ever, that some way would be found to
proceed with the trial.
When the illness of Juror Leavltt
was reported Monday attorneys for the
defense asked that the alternate Jur
or, A. M. Bbkslee, be Instal'ed as a
regular Juror. District Attorney Fred
It was learned that when the re
quest by the defense was made. Judge
Hutton was placed in possession of
certain alleged facts which caused him
to send for a physician of hia iwn
choosing to examine Leavitt.
According to the defense's attorney
this physician found no symptoms of
appendicitis, the ailmant with which
the Juror was said to be suffering.
Further information was said to
have been given Judge Hutton to the ef
fect that Juror Leavitt's opinions re
garding the guilt or innocence of Dar
row had been so freely discussed at
his home prior to his taking a place
on the Jury that they became a mat
ter of common report among his
For this reason attorneys for the de
fense are said to have asserted that
Leavltt feigned illness for the purpose
of being excused from the Jury.
Under the law the alternate Juror
can be used only In the even oi the
death or illness of a regular Juror, and
because of this provision the defense
Is said to have sought to ha.e Leav

mal charges against him.
Should the court decline to excuse
