Harvey MrKraaa. the I'kratmfitl
Bllllarlit. wki la Matched with
Harvey McKenna, of Detroit, tbe ris
iog billiaid player, who is matched with
"Wizard" Schafer for a contest to occur
in New York in January for tbe cham
pionship of tbe world and 13.500 a side,
for 5,000 points, and who is under the
management and backing of W. H. Cat
ton, of this city, has made the most
phenomei al record ever accomplished
by a knieht of the cue, and
it is viry likely that after tbe
treat rm.tch in New York, McKenna
will not ooly have won the championship
of the wo -Id, but the title of "Wizard.'
The great player.who has been in tbe city
several duys, the guest of his friend, Cat
ton who, too, is a celebrated play
er, yesterday completed the de
tails for his approaching match,
deciding that it is to take place
on a Brunswick & Bnlke collender
table. 1 his morning McKenna left for
his borne at Detroit, and about November
1 he will -eturn to Rock Island and with
Catton gie several exhibitions in tbe
three ciliis. In the meantime Catton
will arrar ge an exhibition tour through
the central, southern and eastern slates
to be mate by McKenna and himself on
their way to Ne York next winter. It
was the c ritiinal intention of these two
experts to go to Paris the past summer
and give exhibitions with tbe famous
Frenchman. Yigneaux, at the Paris expo
sition, but they weie delayed in Hew
York in completing the arrangements for
the great contest to take place this win
McKenaa's record is a marvelous one;
bis rise bus been so rapid and yet so
marked, that all admirers of skill and
merit in billiards do not perhaps fully
realize t ie extent of bis accomplish
ments. He tntule the highest average
score at the three ball game in a match
with Eimes at Boston, in Dec. 21 and 22.
1837, he .o play S.tKM) to Eames 500, and
he scare 1 bis 5, 000 in twelve innings,
with an average of 41''i. while Eames
was mak ng 45.
McKci na was induced by an Argus
representative this morning to give an ac
count of bis exploits with the ivory
sphere, end in answer to the question,
"how long have you been playing bil
"I've lieen traveling and have obtained
a living at billiards, either hp leaching,
giving i xhibiiious, or by contests with
experts, ever since I was thirteen years
of ago. I first commenced to play in my
home, at Delroit, Mich., when about ten
years of iige. 1 became interested in the
game al but time, and the manipulation
of the bills seemed to come natural to
me. Ail tbat 1 know about billiards I
learned myself, never having had any
regular instructions at the game. Since
taking it up I have practiced it incess
antly, giving it at all times my entire at
tention itud mucb hard study. Up to
1885 I t-aveled through tbe western and
middle ttates, coming in contact with
about all the noted players in those
states, rceeting with victory almost ev
erywhere. I spent 1S?S.9 in California,
after which I returned east. In 18S5 I
played a match with the late Lon Morris
in San Francisco for 4.IMJO points, at
which I vas defeated, though I was sick
at tbe tin e. The first night I broke the
record th -re. running 1.611 points. Since
that time I baye never lost a game, and
have played with all the noted billiardists
of the world."
"Can you tell me of some of your best
"On Hay 6. 1886. in Brooklyn, I
played oae of the fiuest billiardists in
New Tor. In order to get myself be
fore the public I offered to play any one
5(H) or no count, for which I was looked
upon as b crank, but a match was finally
arranged, and I succeeded in winning tbe
game. The press and twenty five of the
finest loctl players were invited by Morri9
Daly, at whose room we played, to wit
ness the contest, the result of which gave
me the fi -st general notoriety I ever had
in the run. I was to win three games of
500 or n count, which I did with ease.
"The next match was in New York,
August 6th, when I played 1,(KH) or no
count, Testing another noted player,
summing 2.00O points in one inning.
Next I p ayed lleixer at Saratoga. Here
I spotte 1 the balls at every 1(H) points
and defeated him. Next I played Hilly
Burley. f Grand Rapids, Mich., on May
22, 1887. I played l.(HH points, 51(0 or
no conn'., and the first run I made was
tlHi). I riissed then and had to run 500
over aga n. The score at the conclusion
of the game stood 1.40ft to 159 in my
'or. 1'lie nxt mated waa to Boston,
on Decenber 3, 1887. I challenged any
one in N ;w England and offered to give
odds. I played 5,000 points to their 5(H).
Fred Eanes, the champion of New Eng
land, accepted and we played on the 21st
and 22d of last December. It was under
stood lht 1 1 could make 2.5(H) a night
while my opponent was allowed tbe ops
portunity of making his 5(H) and winning
the matc'a in one night if be could do so.
Tbe first night's innings stood, McKenna
first inning, nothing; second inning, 3;
and the third inning 2,41)7, Eames only
makings The next I made 2.5(H), run
ning 2.1'!l in the seventeenth inning thus
winning tbe game and beating the
world's record both nights. Eames' total
score was 45 in this game. My
average was 416$ points, which is tbe
best evei made by any one at billiards."
Outside of McKenna, tbe best records
are: Sender. 0O; Hlosson. 1.113; Yig
neaux, 1,531; Catton, 933; McLaughlin,

tain the sentiment of tbe laboring people
of Rock Island as to cooperation with
the national eight-hour league in its ef
forts to bring about the establishment of
eight hours as the standard working day
on and after May 1, 1890. The move
ment contemplates the voluntary relin
quishment of one fifth of their wages by
men now working ten hours in order
tbat the time of service may be
reduced to eight; and tbey must accept
no overtime employment.
Brief and suitable remarks were also
made by Messrs. Henry Bostock, John
Barge, Charles Dunn, M. H. Lynch, Ous
tav Klotz. J. E. Larkin. Thomas
Gray, W. B. Cochrane, M. H. McCar
thy, and others, and a committee
was finally appointed to confer with tbe
Rock Island city council with a view of
making it a condition of city contract
work tbat the eight-hour day ehall be
respected, consisting of Messrs. J. W.
Cavanaugh, Micnacl Manley, Gustav
Klotz, Thomas Gray, Joseph Walters and
W. P. Cochrane, and it was also decided
to hold another meeting at Hillier's hall
next Monday evening for the formation
of an eight-hour league. To this meet
ing all working men and women are in

most admired young ladies.
The groom is one of the most popular
and highly respected men in Rock Island
county, of which be is sheriff, and is de
serving of all tbe congratulations that
will pour upon him in his happiness.
The ceremony was followed by an ele
gant wedding supper, and tbe bride re
ceived numerous tokens of love and es
teem, including a complete set of dia
monds and one hundred dollars in gold

It was to a much larger and more ap
preciative audience than the company
bad appeared to on the two previous
evenings, that Fenuer & Crane's all star
company presented the comedy-drama.

last evening. Tbe play is possessed ot a
carefully woven plot drawing out thrilling
situations and affording scope for fine
acting which the company realizes and
takes advantage of. The heroic part of

Mr. E M. Crane while Mr. Lloyd Mel

force of tbe character. Miss Irene Wor

Monday evening the sweet singer, Karl
Gardner, will appear in his new comedy.
"Fatherland," a romantic and picturesque
drama of life in tbe Tyrol. Tbe play is
the work of Sidney R Ellis, with whom
Mr. Gardner collaborated in tbe produc
tion. Mt. Gardner, in the part of "Her
man Leopold," a Tyrolean peasant half
hunter, half guide presents a character
natural, but picturesque withal, and he is
the central figure of many stirring inci
dents. His voice is heard to advautage
in characteristic songs of tbe Tyrol, and
bis singing of the "Lilac," the accompa
niment to one of the most dramatic epi
sodes in tbe play, is an interesting feature
of the performance.
