COWDEN IS CHAMPION.
Rock Island's Sprinter is King of
Yesterday' reat Victory at Darea
Vrt la whiea Cav ara waa aa Kaay
WlaarrBIHarr l'k( Haada.
Yesterday at Davenport occurred an
event in tbe sporting community of the
three cities. It was a race of eighty
seven and a half yi.rds between John
Cowden, the Rock I aland sprinter, and
Thomas Robinson, a professional, late of
Kansas City, but nov of Moline, and on
whom the sports of c ur eastern suburb
staked their all that 1 e could outrun the
celebrated Rock Island boy. Fully 8,003
people were present; mostly all from
Rock Island and the ambitious town on
our east. The contest accurred on tbe race
course in Central Park the old Scott
county fair grounds. Tbe distance of
tbe race was agreed uon as eighty-seven
and a half yards as a c tn promise, Cowden
being a one hundred yard runner, and
Robinson a seventy-five yard runner.
The stakes were f 150 a side. The signal
to start was to be a pistol phot. Wm,
Olson, of Rock Island, was appointed
referee and Dennis a'cEnary, of Moline,
stake holder. The betting, prior to the
race, was free and active. The enthusi
asm over Cowdea wa as marked before
the contest as it was hen he had become
victorious, and the Rock Island represen
tatives pushed the Moline enthusiasts,
who were for anything to beat Rock Isl
and, clear to the wull. They emptied
their pocket books ard then put up their
watches, scarf pins, r ngs and everything
they possessed except their clothing, on
Cowden, and would have put them up
had Moline accepted. As an accom
plished sport would be apt to put it:
All the Moline sport time down to Mall.
But when the race v over bud all lot
Over $3,000 and fo ir different watches
and other articles ch tnged hands on the
result of the contest, all coming to Rock
Island, and some sing e winnings were as
high as 300 and f 503.
At the signal Cowden made a remarka
ble leap of fourteen feet and then ran
away from his opponent like a deer, win
ning by twelve feet. Robinson became
discoursged when he saw the lightning
like speed of tbe Rock Island fleet foot
and slacked up. Tbe time was not par
ticularly fasl.either.aid Cowden declared
afterward that he could have done much
better had he been pushed to the test.
After the race Robinson attempted to
dispute the fairness of Cowden's spurt at
the outset, but tbe referee and starter
both declared it perfectly fair. Robinson
attempted to bluff bj offering to wager
500 that he could heat Cowden in
another race. The amount was promptly
covered, and if the Moline man means
business the race wili take place in that
city some evening th s week.
The Davenports defeated the Spring'

THE BARBER BUSINESS;
The Mallae Maaaay Teat Caae Fail
A Little Liw aa the Mabjeet,
The barber case in Moline was decided
by the jury in favor of the defendant late
Saturday afternoon. Leopold, the bar
ber, proved that be had a box in his shop
Sunday, into which the money for shav
ing waa dropped, which the barber gave
to a poor family, thereby bringing him
under the charity clause of the stat
ute, which says "whoever disturbs the
peace and good order of society by labor
(work of necessity and charity except
ed) or by amusement or diverson on Sun
day, shall be fined," etc. This is Sec. 317.
Starr & Curtis statutes. Page 834, and
not the section as quoted by the Union of
yesterday in reference to "disturbing
peace of family," on which are two whol
ly different sections of the statutes. The
latter was not referred to or thought' of
in the trial. As to the case of Richmond
ys Moore, 107, 111., deciding the case, the
question of labor or keeping open shops
on the Sabbath was not in issue, but the
enforcement contract made on Sunday.
The leading and only case in this state on
the subject of labor on the Sabbath is
"McPherson vs Village of Chebanse,"
tried in Iroquois county, affirmed in the
second district of appellate court, by
Judges Lacy and Pleasants and upon ap
peal to tbe supreme court, was affirmed
in the following language:
Vol. 114. Page 51 We do not admit
tbat tbe keeping open of stores in a vil
lage on Sunday ia allowable under the
statute; that it would not disturb tbe
peace and good order of society. Sun
day, as it is observed by common usage,
ia not only set apart as a day of rest from
labor but it is devoted to religious rest.
The consecration of the day to its wonted
manner of observance is a blessing to
mankind. Besides tbe recuperative ef
fects referred to it has its other beneficent
use. It affords opportunity for moral,
intellectual and social culture. It is
promotive of good habits, and tends to
improve the manners of men. It is civ
ilizing and refining in ail its influences.
Whatever detracts from the observance of
tbe day as it is customarily obsetved is
not to be countenanced. Tbe keep
ing open by persona of their
places of business in a community
on Sunday for the exercise of the
business of their ordinary calling is a
public and serious interference with the
observance of tbe day ia its accustomed
mode of observance. It is obstructive
of the purpose for which the day is set
apart; it is offensive to tbe moral sense
of tbe community; it disturbs the peace
of society in its open interference with
tbe peace and quiet of a day devoted as a
day of rest, and for religious worship.
It disturbs tbe good order of society,
publicly and flauntingly and in defiance
of public sentiment desecrating a day and
inviting others to its desecration, set apart
for purposes of the highest well being of
human society, etc.
If the 107th Illinois settled the case
why did not either of those courts refer
to the case in their opinions? It was
simply because the former case was not
in point on tbe principle of labor, but
was as to mere business, which no one
claims the Illinois statutes prohibits at

Saturday evening the first lot of Bar
dolph brick for the pavement of tbe
Street Car company's portion of Second
avenue gave out, when the double tracks
and intervening space bet ween, two thirds
of the way to Nineteenth had been com
pleted. Between Saturday night and
this morning, however, eight more car
loads of Bardolph brick arrived, also six
of Galesburgand four of curbing, so that
work can now proceed right along without
Interruption, as more will be constantly

tracks to be paved by the company, was

The Bardolph brick which the street
car company is using seems to be by
great odds the favorite with all who have
examined tbe two kinds. It is shown by
test, too, to hold its own with uny others.
Previous to the adoption of any particu
lar kind by the council, AM. Hampton
made a test, which, like the one mede by
Mr. Burgower with Galesburg brick and
noted Saturday, proved very satisfactory,
lie took half a brick of the Bardolph and
half a brick . of. tbe Bloomington and
soaked them seven hours. At tbe end of
tbat time the Bloomington brick had
gained five and a half ounces and the
Bardolpn brick one ounce.
