clamour of battle settled over the
grassy Islander park, there stood the j
score in figures gruesome, announcing j
that the oleaginous warriors had cross- j
id the platter 11 times, while all the
urawny boys could do was to drag
themselves around the circuit seven'
times. That ever fateful-to-somebody
beventh proved the undoing of the
maciated nine when the pitch-
r, Ralph D. MacManus, blew up
in a little cloudburst that resembled !
a Kansas wind storm. Till then, the!
Leans were on the long end of the I
M ore and the Fata were at Mac's mer-
y. Hig Smoke Manuel was switched
from behind the bat onto the mound.
lUit the Leans were the under
flow and the Fats had no merry in
their scant repertoire. And so with the
fve scores gleaned in the seventh,
four of which carne earlier in the came

F;its aviated onto victory and the
richt to brag for an entire year on :
the merits of their team.

It was an impossibility to keep
track of the movements of the ball
wallopers during the game, for their
moves were many, while the accom-!
plishments were few. As a matter of
fact, there were few hits on either
hide, while the number of errors and ;
bases on balls looniB up in the dou
ble column. That Is why the players
prevailed upon the scorers to refrain
from attempting a box score. As

LOCAL LAD WILL
NOT ffiEET CQULON
Clifford Schieberl Not Ready to
Go After A Champion,
Sporting Editor The Argus. I just
returned from Kewanee, and I wish
to make a statement with reference to
the article that appeared in the issues ,
of yesterday's local papers regarding 1
a proposed match with Johnny Coulon
Labor day, should 1 win from Pete ;
Krust Aug. 12. '
Matchmaker Fred G. Smith has
made no such promise to me, and it is
absurd to think that he would, as he
is one of the best matchmakers in the j
country. It would be a ditlicult mat-!
! ter to induce any club other than a ,
local club to put on a bill like that un- ;
til I have defeated some of the boys
that Coulon has, and this would in-1
elude Harry Forbes, George Kitson,
Frank Conley, Frankie Burns and oth- j
era. Before I meet those men and
qualify myself for a championship :
fight I will be too heavy for the ban
tam weight class, so therefore do not
anticipate a match with Coulon. j
I will probably meet some of the
boys mentioned above before I grow 1
into the featherweight class, but I do
not figure on competing for champion- ,
ship honors as a bantam.
I will, nowever. try to put Rock Is-!
in the featherweight division, where I
ill not have to weaken myself to
make the weight. This will not be for
six or, eight ii'ontlis.

WRESTLING CARD IS GOOD
Many Devotees of Sport Witness Open
Air Matches at Island City
A good wrestling exhibition was
staged at the Island City park yester
day afternoon before a fair sized
crowd. The card included two finish
matches and two good exhibitions.
The first match was between Thenop
olis of East Moline and Young Polly
o' Moline. Thenopolis won both falls
with a scissors on the body and arm
hold, the first taking 6 minutes 45
seconds, while the second took 12
minutes. This was the loser's first
public appearance and he gained much
applause by his gameness.
Harry Brondell and Bull McCleary,
two old favorites, put on a 30-minute
exhibition, neither .gaining a fall and
showing to the fans that they have
lost none of their prowess in the

The first fall of the main go be
tween Lonie Page of Davenport and
Knockout Brown of Chicago, for the
lightweight championship of Illinois
i and Iowa, was full of excitement to
start with, but Page let his sturdy lit
tie. oDDonent exhaust himself in his
efforts to down him. When the Dav
en porter took the offensive for the
last time it was only a few moments
till the Greek was on his back, due to
Lonie's favorite hold, the scissors on

in which Hurley 6howed that he has

STEWART AND M'CARTY TO
MEET TONIGHT IN GOTHAM
New York, Aug. 5 Manager Gib
son of the Garden A. C. said yesterday
that he expected a crowd of 10,000
persons at the ringside tonight when
Luther McCarty and Jim Stewart be
gin their 10-round bout. Orders for
reserved seats have been received
from Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadel
phia, Boston, and other sporting cen
ters. This bout Is of vital importance to
McCarty. He has been heralded as a
wonderful fighter, a hitter like Fitz
simmons and John L. Sullivan, and a
rusher like Tom Sharkey. Having
'felled the elephantine Carl Morris for
j the full count, McCarty is believed to
i carry a wallop that will drop most
lanvbodv, but whether he can land it
on Stewart's jaw or body with enough
I accuracy and power to effect a knock
out remains to be seen.

The noveltv which ia promised in
the Rice and Dore water carnival, to
appear in Rock Island the week of
Aug. 11 under the auspices of the
Rock Island Amusement company, is
attracting attention from far and
wide, and it will not be the Islander
people or the tri-city people alone,
who will attend the entertainment,
but people from miles and miles
around will also come. Thus far, the
public has but a general impression
of the carnival performance. It is a
real novelty and few have seen it.
Rice and Dore, equal owners in the
big show which Is to come to Rock Is
land, formed their combination less
than a year ago. Roth have had ex
perience with the big circus people
and they realize what it means to of
ftr a first class attraction.
The Billboard for the current week
devotes a column to the porttayal c-f
Rice and Dore's aggregation, and the
water carnival, the real feature of the
entire show, receives its shares of the
space. Here is what the Billboard has
to say about the aqua circus:
