Lloyd & Stewart,
A large number of Rock Island people
attended the billiard exhibition at Turner
Grand opera bouse Davenport last eve
ning, and they learned or rather saw a
few things about billiards that they had
never dreamed of before. The Demo
crat of this morning said of the enter
tainment: W. II. Catton has been at bis Rock
Island home for the past three or four
days, while Jacob Schaefer, Eugene Car
ter and Frank Ives arrived on a late train
Thursday night and registered at the
Kimball. Schaefer suffered from an ear
acbe all day Friday and kept to his room,
while the others were piloted about the
city by Catton. and entertained. No
expense had been spared to make the
entertainment as fine a one. both as to
the aggregation and skill at billiard play
ing engaged and in general effect, as it
was possible to make it, and it was an
elegant affair from all points of view.
The lower floor bad been cleared with
the exception of the dress circle, from
the raised seats in which a good view of
the table could be obtained, and the table
stood ia the center of the hall, in full
view of everyone. Upon the stage were
potted plants, while four handsome floral
tributes rested upon tables just In front
of the stage. With the compliments of
his friend, W. H-Catten, a floral shield
was dedicated to Scbaefler, a flwal
wreath to Catton with the compliments
of the Piute club, and floral stars to Car
ter and Ives, presented by the Phoenix
club. Each design included three balls,
two white and one red, emblematic of the
game. Schaefer's shield was inscribed
"Champion," Catton's wreath bore his
name, and the stars of Carter and Ives
bore tbeir initials. The first was at least
four feet high, and the others smaller by
about a foot.
William Chamberlain acted as mas cr
of ceremonies, J. F. Cook ukine care of
the points of the game as they were made.
The first contest was between Schafer and
Carter, a game of 200 points, 14 inch
balk line. While Schaefer made many
brilliant plays, he was evidently out of
form and Cartel's steady playing won Ibe
game. The sjore:
Schaefer 0. 2, i 11, 3. 3, 16, 0. 0. 14, 0, 21, 0, 1,2
5,23,11,0,0,2. Total. 139.
Carter 4, 12. 2. 1 . 4 4, 38, 7, 5, 2. 10, 22, 46, 13, 6, 2,
10,5,7,0,2. Total, i0.
The second game was 400 points, French
carroms between Catton and Ives. Cat
ton's playing was the steadier and charac
terized, too, by many brilliant points, bu:
Ives' generalship which has 6r deservedly
won him the title of the "Napoleon of bil
liards," gave him the victory. The score:
Catton -0. 2!, 0, 26, 80, 17, 100, 61, 0. 1, 0, 26.
lves 40, 5, 7, 11, 49, 6, 30, 2, 66, 15, 0, 149. Total,
. After the contests Schaeffer, Ives and
Carter gave some exhibitions of fancy
plaing which were heartily appreciated.
All who were present from Rock Island
felt fully repaid.
