A CURIOUS CAPER.
The Isavrapwrt Hi i"r Ball Clk IHn.
taada-KeaiMta for the Artlsm.
The Davenport base ball association
met last night and after discussing the
present situation in'ihe interstate league,
decided to pay off the players, surrender
its forfeit money ol f COO to the league
and disband. Most people will look up
on this as a very curious caper and will
be inclined to make the accusation that
the Davenport association is acting child
'sb. There is no dojbt that the Daven
port association had reason to believe in
the existence of a preconcerted plan on
the part of the matagers of the Spring
field and Quincy clubs as well as the
president and secretary of the league, to
beat the Davenport team out of the pen
nant, which it bad dearly demonstrated
its capability of wini ing. Rut there was
no particular evidei ce that the other
league clubs partic pated in any such
scheme, and it would surely have been
better to have wailed a few days longer
and pUyod out the Rurlington scries in
Davenport at least. Evansv illc defeated
Quincy yesterday and might have taken
another game of the iiresent series. Dav
enport had sis more iames with Burling'
ton, and by winning the majority of them
might have lost the turee at Quincy and
still been ahead tha. Is, of course, with
the two victories ver Evansville at
Davenport, which Secretary Prichard
threatened to throw out, but which any
board of arbitration would have given
Davenport. In view of these facts the
association would ha'e been fully war-
rauted in holding trgethcr a few days
longer certainly until the three games
on the home ground) had been played
j ue Jemorrat- Uazeile of tins morning
assigns tbeae reasons lor the association's
There were no prospects of the Davens
ports winning any morn games in the
league if they remaine 1 in it. But that
wan not only what ba.l ar iused the in
dignation of the stockholder. The com
bination of oiipostiug f trees in the league
wbich look the form of a conspiracy,
which had been working for the pant two
months to prevent the Davenports from
being siiooemful, was nlao a topic greatly
iliacuasert. Umpired, ii seems, were in
structed to worst the Davenports wher
ever they Appeared a deep, well laid
and carefully planned conspiracy. Secre
tary 1'ritchard. the din dors claimed, bad
not dealt fairly with the association.
Ue has not had umpires here to
umpire games when they should be,
and the result has been that the
gameB were turned into farces, Uis
guating the people nd placing the
8Hrt here in a disreputable light. He
apioinled lluut to umpire the last twelve
games in Quincy, and Hunt is reported
to have slated lo Davenport aud other
club players that the Davenports should
not win one of the gaties played iu that
city if he could help it. Why then should
the club go to Qunicy t The directors had
requested Secretary I'ichard to remove
Hunt from Quincy, ard have a reliable
man umpire there, for the Davenports
would not play in that city unless lie did
so. This be refused to do. The direc
tors requenied him to credit the sums of
money they paid to umpires here on the
club'a monthly dues 1 1 the league, and
Prichard refuxed to do this also. He de
clared that he would t irow out the first
lot the last series of games played here
and also the second one, notwithstanding
tuey were won fairly bv the Davenports.
The action of last e 'cning will prob
ably kill hase base for years to come in
Davenport, coming as i . does directly on
top of a similar proceeding toward the
close of the season latt year when the
club was in the wes em association.
This year's team has Iteen an exception
ally strong one, composed of gentlemanly
players who have given us some of the
licst hall witnessed in this country the
present season, but th i association has
labored under one grc it disadvantage,
an.l that was the hoodl im element that
has pervaded its bleachin; boards and dis
graced the club on the occasion of
every game that has bet n played there.
The same disgraceful, orofane conduct
may be shown in all cities iu the league,
but in Davenport it ha been about as
tough as it could be.
Rock Island and Moline will probably
unite iu a team for next year in the inter
state league should one I e formed. Good
games can lie played, 'vhich would be
wnll pa-sroaiamt, MpmMlf if him of tha

Matter af Vital lateifat Aete Vpoa
by I.aet IKlahi'a Cowartl Meetlag
Review f the Praeee4.lBg.
Last night occurred another of those
important sessions of the council such as
have characterized the past few months
in city matters, and wbich go to show not
only that the city is moving and that new
laws must govern new developments, but
that Rock Island has a council which
will act promptly, courageously and
City Attorney Haas read an amend
ment to Chapter 20 of the laws and ordi
nances entitled "Railroads," which be had
prepared in obedience to tbe desire of tbe
ordinance committee, and wbich provides
that the railroads entering the city shall
erect gates, guards or viaduct at any
place the council shall by resolution or
der in tbe future, and fixing a $300 pen
alty for failure to comply with the orders
of the council in such regard. The
amendment which the council adopted
unanimously became necessary in the
face of the indifference manifest
ed on the part of the railroads
to the wishes of tbe council with
regard lo gates at two dangerous cross
ing. Now it will only be necessary for
the council to pass a resolution ordering
gates at certain street intersections and
they will have lo be put in by tbe rail
roads affected and maintained by them.
Between this and the next meeting tbe
gates at Davenport will be iuspected and
a resolution drawn up specifying tbe kind
and ordering them placed at Eighteenth
and Twenty-fourth streets. Both ure
dangerous places and tne council would
be guilty of great negligence in leaving
tbem longer unprotected.
The matter of permitting the Second
avenue curb along tbe line of tbe reduced
grade came up and the council after fully
considering the petition of the property
holders and hearing tbe views of Messrs.
David Don and Peter Fries on the sub
ject, decided that tbe curb must come
down, on the ground that it would set a
bad precedent and that it could not be
done without changing the general ordi
nances. Aid. Corten brought up the subject of
tbe water main in that portion of Second
avenue to oe lowered to proper grade, and
moved that the pipe be lowered. Aid.
Edwards and Negus thought it was safe
enough where it is, and a motion to leave
it so was defeated. Supt. of Water
works Murrin was called upon for his
opinion as to what would be the expense
and time consumed in lowering the pipe.
He stated that he thought he could do it
in three days at a cost not to exceed $70.
The council ordered the pipe down pass
ing Aid Corken's excellent motion.
Aid. Knox called the attention of tbe
council to the seeming delay in bringing
sidewalks to grade and in relaying them
where the grade has been established,
and cited several instances of shamefully
dilatory action in this particular. Aid.
Evans presented a resolution covering
the matter whicb appears in full in the
official record as adopted by the council.
Everybody should read it.
Aid. Hampton thought certain of tbe
aldermen ought to set an example by
looking to their own walks, and Aid.
Edward's motion that the work of repair
be begun in front of tbe premises of those
aldermen who had neglected their duties,
put the council in a good nature for the
further work of the evening.

The first celebration of Swedish fore
father's day at Moline, Saturday, was a
complete success in all particulars. Tbe
old Y. M. C. A. building was well filled
says the Republican, when the landing on
the American soil of the first emigrants
from Sweden was first celebrated. Tbe
audience was largely composed of per
sons of Swedish birth or descent, though
there was quite a good number who weie
not. The hall had been tastefully deco
rated for the occasion. A large Swedish
flag was suspended at the back of tbe
stace, but this was nearly covered by two
good sized American flags and at the front
was a large array of plants and flowers.
A large platform which . bad bmb
erected in the northwest corner of
the hall, was occupied by tbe choir;
about this, as well as the stage, tbe Amer
ican colors were profusely displayed.
Tbe exercises began with a selection by
tbe Deere band, after which Col. Eobler
called the assemblage to order and in a
few remarks stated tbe purpose of those
who arranged the celebration. Dr.
Richard Edwards, state superintendent of
public instruction, then spoke, and the
choir sang "The Star Spangled Banner."
Then Rev. E. Noreliua deliyered an ad
dress in the Swedish language. After
this there were remarks by Hon. Wm. H.
Gest and Prof. A. O. Bersell interspersed
with selections, music by tbe band, tbe
special choir and the Svea male choir, tbe
whole closing with "America" by the

It is gratifying to state that Mitchell &
& Lynde bave practically abandoned the
idea of remdteliog theivbuilding on Sec

build tbe front portion of the building
entirely, providing that the city will cede
them six feet on each aide in order that
the building may be enlarged and pro
vided with an arched center entrance on
Second avenue and one on each side of
the building. That this provision will be
readily complied with by tbe council,
