as the amount stipulated few the site it
to be limited to $10,000 tome preferences
may have to be sacrificed. The prevail,

most desired, cut it is ptobable that
these lots will he so . exorbitant
in price that it will be impossible
to get them. The Lynde lvopertv on
Sixteenth street and Third avenue and the
lot on Nineteenth street and Tbird ave

who think the building should go back at

Tha Dabuqoe Tde graph of yesterday
morning contalna tha particulars of tha
cocking main in that city ba Christmas
morning as stated in laat evening's Astros
The Telegraph says:
A cocking main between Rock Island
and Dubuque birds waa "polled off" early
this morning In a room of Peter Wiokel's
saloon beyond the shooting park. Twelve
Rock Island sports arrived here Christmas
with the best talent to be found in tbeir
town and Davenport. Their birds had
been carefully trained. They bad fought
decoy cocka at the ends of broomstictk,
they had sparred with heela the points ot
which were abeatbed with cork, aad they
bad been chased about a room to better
their wiod and to get their muscles into
condition. The mob of bird fanciers
began to assemble at Winkel's as early as
7 o clock but the dead awell sports, who
bad beeo given a straight tip delayed tbeir
arrival until midnight. Ia order to get
toe crow a it was necessary to open the
doors early, but tha convenience of the
upper strata of gamesters demanded the
f on should not begin nntilmorning. The
Rock Island contingent bad brought
airaigat oeeis wdiis uuouque insisted on
the deep socket. We fear the early edu
cation of our readers in thia matter bas
been sadly neglected. So we will explain
that a straight heel ia a ateel spur an inch
and half in length which extends from the
chicken's leg at right angles while the gaff
oi a aeep socket curves upwards from
point below the bird's natural spur. The
Rock Island people finally consented to
tha deep socket, but insisted on a choice
between tbe two seta of spurs offered bj
Dubuque. This waa allowed. At
11 o clock the . erowd. numbering
aeventy-flve, was sgain seated on benches
about the pit. the floor of which was cov
ered with saw-dust to prevent the birds
from slipping. Th? main was at an end
three hours later. It was for f 100 aside.
best five battles out of nine with side beta
of 5 to 1 50 on each battle. The birds
were chiefly black and brown breasted
reds and their weights ran from three to
six and a half pounds. Dubuque won
tbe first five battles and tbe main. Rock
Island bad tbe better birds, they flopped
twice while their local competitor were
making one blow 1ut tbeir heeler didn't
understand bis business and bis birds
could do no execution. Oa tbe otoer
hand the Dubuqua cocks with every clat
ter Imposed upon tbe Rock Island man
tbe disagreeable duty ot taking their
steels out of his bird's eye or neck or
throat. A cock when struck tics down
and hia heeler polls out tbe gaff. Were
tbe heeler of tbe other bird allowed to do
it he might accldently rip tbe fallen b rd's
throat open or eye out in tbe operation.
When one cock becomes so weak that he
lies down in the pit and allows tbe other
to stand oa top of him tbe battle ia loat.
As a rule, however, the battles are not
reduced to a test of endurance, one cock
being rendered bora du combat by a blow
through tbe throat, or eye or brain.
The first battle was a chopping match
in which tbe Dubuque bird did all the
execution. The Rock Island cock made
a game fight, but was utterly exhausted
by tbe heavy blows of his adversary be
fore the fight waa five minute old.
The second battle waa tbe best of tbe
main from the Don man 'a atandooint.
whatever Henry Berg might bave thought
ot it. Tbe Rock Island bird took hia
punishment like a major and died game.
Tbe next two battles were awarded Du
buque ia a twinkling, the Rock L-Wnd
cbic-kena flying tbe pit. Tbe fifth battle
waa a stubborn contertand ended like tbe
second. Rock Itlana'a nomination being
cut to pieces. After the n.ain came two
scratch" battlea each for C25 a aide.
Tbe Dubuque bird had one eye knocked
out tbe first flap and tbe blood from It
ran into and blinded tha other eye. He
wa then at tbe mercy of hia oppoaent
but be waa game all through and it took
half an hour to finish him. He jumped
aimlessly about tbe pit. striking tun side
of it or his opponent as chance directed.
In tbe next battle the Rock Island bird
was fonght to a standstill. This ended
the "fun." and at 3 a. ro. the dead awell
sports who bad gone out at midnight left
lor the city In carriages wbila tbe chumps
who had repotted at tbe acene of tbe
fight at 7 a. m. walked home, reaching
the city in time to get breakfast and go
to work in a machine shop or boiler room.
The original calculation was that tbe
main would be over at 12:30 o'clock, and
Allen & Swiney ran their cars until that
Of the seven cocks Rock Island placed
in tbe pit but one escaped to tell tbe tale
to bis barnyard follower at home. One
died ia the pit, three so badly used np
that they were afterwards killed and two
were beheaded for cowardice, making six
