on a Riunswick & Butke collender

he will return to Rock Inland and with
Catton gie several exhibitions in the

will arran je an exhibition tour through

McKent a's record is a marvelous one;
bis rise ha been so rapid and yet so
marked, that all admirers of skill and
merit in billiards do not perhaps fully
realize tl e extent of his accomplish
ments. He miide the highest average
score at the three bull game in a match
with E imis at Boston, in Dec. 21 and 22,
1837. he t3 Plav 5.1 MK) to Eames 500. and
he scoret his 5.000 in twelve innings,
with an tverage of 4l4. while Eames
was maki ig 45.
McKenia was induced by an Arodb
representative this morning to give an ac
count of bis exploits wttu the ivory
sphere, and in answer to the question.
"how lot g have you been playing bil
liards?" n plied:
"I've bD traveling anil have obtained
a liviDg at billiards, either bp teaching,
giving exhibitions, or by contests with
experts, ever since I was thirteen years
of age. I first commenced to play in my
home, at Detroit, Mich., when about ten
years of a 'e. I became interested in the
game at t jat time, and the manipulation
of the balls seemed to come natural to
me. All that I 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, i ng it at all times my entire at
tenlion aud much hard study. Lp to
1885 I traveled through the western and
middle s ates, coming in contact with
about all the noted players in those
states, mi-eting with victory almost ev
erywhere. I spent 18.S-9 in California,
after whk'h I returned east. In 1885 I
played a natch with the late Lon Morris
in Man I rancisco lor 4,ikki points, at
which I was defeated, though I was sick
atthetims. The first night I broke the
record thi re, running 1.641 points. Since
that time have never lost a game, and
have playi d with all the noted billiardista
of the wo Id.

On May 6. 1886, in Brooklyn, I
played oi e of the tiueat billiardista in
New Tori . In order to get myself be
fore the ublic I offered to play any one
5(H) or no count, for which 1 was looked
upon as a crank, but a match was finally
arranged, and I succeeded in winning the
game. Tie press and twenty five of the
finest local players were invited by Morris
Daly, at whose room we played, to wit
ness the on test, the result of which gave
me the flru general notoriety I ever had

A quiet, but no less important wedding
was solemnized at the home of Mrs. II.

Miss Emma Baas, sister of Mrs. DeSanto,
and one of Rock Island's best known and
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 oi all the congratulations that
will pour upon him in his happiness.
The ceremony was followed by an ele
gant wedding supper, and the bride re

It was to a much larger and more ap
preciative audience than the company
bad appeared to on the two previous
evenings, that renuer & Cranes all star
company presented the comedy-drama,
Plot and Passion" at Hariier's theatre
last evening. The 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

Tonight the company appears in "In

greeted by a still larger bouse.
Monday evening the sweet singer, Karl
Gardner, will appear in his new comedy,
"Fatherland," a romantic and picturesque
drama of life in the Tyrol. The play is
the work of Sidney R Ellis, with whom
Mr. Gardner collaborated in the 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 advantage
in characteristic songs of the Tyrol, and
his singing of the "Lilac," the accompa
niment to one of the most dramatic epi
sodes in the play, is an interesting feature
of the performance.

The Davenport Timet, in this manner
accuses the A nous of making a "fee
ble defense" of Chief of Police Frank
Kessler, of the Davenport police force:
The Timet would say that if the Arous
bad carefully read the late "razoo" grand
lury s "razoo report, it would not have
bad occasion to say what it has said in
its feeble defence of a taxteating banditti
police force under the control of a tax-
eating chief of police.
The "razoo" grand jnry that lately died
say in their report: 'We bare examined
the books and papers of the county aud
itor, and also the books anavipcr of the
city collector, and have takfe their evi
dence under oath, in res pec to said al
leged unlawful diversions of npneys; also
have examined the books, tapers and
vouchers of said Chief Kessleit and have

The Arous did not attempt an? fcfense
of Chief Kessler. It simply fblished
his vindication as due him, or an van ac
cused of crime. It does not tbk in the
face of the chief's record of nsiy years'
standing, or the grand jury's fit ng that
any defense is necessary any re than
it does in view of the Timet' a jrtions.
