Contest Between tiib

The wrestling match advertise!! to tase
place at Harper's theatre crT Saturday
evening drew a fair sized house consider
ing the fact that sporting events do not
attract as much attention here as in other
towns of the same size, atd another
reason why there were not more present
was that it leaked out on Saturday that
!"Farmer" Burns would not appear, Bnd
when John Gibson, who acted as master
of ceremonies, announced this from the
Btage there was a general murmur of die.
satisfaction from the house . The enter
tainment opened with a 5 -round glove
contest between Con Doyle and Biily
Gibson, his trainer, Doyle of course geu
ting a little the best of Gibson, whose
wind was the only thing that seemed to
Messrs. Comstock and Jack Carkeek,
the latter of whom had been procured on
account of Burns' absence, were then in
troduced. Comstock stands nearly six
feet tall, and though he weighs
about 200 pounds, is built in propor
tion, and is indeed a fine specimen
of muscular development, and his
clear complexion, shows that he uses
every precaution in caring for himself.
Carkeek is alBo a powerful man, and,
though not as large as Comstock, he
shows himself to be every inch an ath
lete. The conditions of the match were
catch as catch can, three falls out of five,
two points down. In the first, Comstock,
who is much younger at the business
than his opponent, acted on the defen
sive, and some very pretty bridging was
done by both men toward the last. Car
keek got a half Nelson and then a hip
lock, hold acd attempted to give his ad
versary a fljing fall, but failed. The
first fall, however, was won by Carkeek
in 15 minutes. The wrestlers took a
rest of 10 minutes after which they again
took holds and began the sime mm eu
vers that had characterized the
first bout, Comstock again acting on the
defensive. In this struggle Carkeek
showed himself to be worthy of the rep
utation that he has won, and though
Comstock did some very clever work
Carkeek secured almost every hold he
wished, and though be gave Comstock
some dizzy headspins it took him 17 min
utes to win the fall.
Comstock was the favorite from the
start, owing to the fact, perhaps, that
Carkeek has a national reputation as a
wrestler, and more was expected of him.
When the men appeared f.ot the third
time they looked to be in the pink of
conkition and after struggling for eight
minutes Comstock got a hip hold and with
a quick throw brought his opponent to
grass amid the cheers of the house. When
the men came up the fourth time the in
terest that was manifested bv the audi
ence was intense and though both men
men looked a trifle weary, they went at
it with a will and Comstock appeared
more confident than before, and both men
did some more very clever work. Carkeek
again gave Comstock a head spin and
landed him on his side. Then by main
strength be turned Comstock in spite of
his struggles and slowly pressed bis
shoulders to the floor. This endel
lne contest, tut a number of gal
lery gods were disposed to . dispute the
rulings of the referee and maintained that
Carkeek had not won the fall fairly. This
called forth a speech from Mr. Carkeek
who neatly and politely admonished the
elements in the gallery of their misbe
havior, and after "speaking briefly on the
subject of wrestling, bade the audience
good night. Remarks from Comstock
were now expected, and he did not seem
to think he had been treated fairly and
he made an ill step by what in slang
phraseology would be termed "chewinj
lie condemned the Athletic club
which had the match in charge
but according to the contract which
reads ' Farmer Burns or any other
man whom the club may produce,"
tuey had a right o select anyone
they chose to wrestle with Comstock.
Carkeek. as before stated, is one of the
best known wrestlers of the country and
has won falls from some of the best wrest
lers in the world. Comstock claims the
championship of the Pacific coast, he
having thrown Quinn at Portland, Ore. ,
three falls in five, last December, and
won the same kind of a match from

Jack Carkeek. the noted wrestler, left
at 6:45 this morning for Milwaukee. To an

Btated that be was returning to Milwau

the law department of the Chicago &
Northwestern railroad in that ' city. He
bad no idea of coming to Rock Island
until Friday morning when he returned
from a trip west, and found a message
awaiting him from John Cline, of Beloit,
aakinir him to eo there at once. He
complied and was then sent to this city
to take Burns' place in the wrestling
match on Saterday night. He said that
Comstock was a very powerful man, and,
although young at the business, display
ed some wonderful tact in wrestling.
A boat race between Messrs. Wittick
and Knowlton, two employes at the pliw
shops, occurred yesterday morning. The
match wus for f6 a side, the course to be
from the plow shops to the draw pier and
return . The start was made at 9 o'clock,

A SUNDAY SESSION.
I'pon Invitation ot Mayor McCono
ehie the Council has a luiet Little
The city council held a meeting yester
day afternoon, which was attended only
by the bold-over aldermen and those who
will take their seats at tbe regular meet
ing on the evening of May 4. Even that
august individual, City Clerk Koehler,
whose presence is so essential at all con
claves of that bsdy, was excluded.
Neither wa9 the legal advice of City At
torney Hass deemed necessary. After
digesting a good Sunday dinner, bis
honor, the mayor, meandered down
to the Armory building, and one by
one the aldermen dropped in at the coun
cil chamber. When all were there ex
cepting Aid. Knox, the mayor turned'the
key in the door, and walking to his seat,
informed the aldermen that he bad in
vited them to cot s alt with him regarding
the appointive offices which he would
soon be required to f 11. He thereupon
submitted a large number of applications
for the different offices, and invited an
expression of the council as to prefer
esces. For superintendent of waterworks
seven votes were recorded for the present
efficient superintendent, J. A. Murrin,
and six for T. J. Reddig, one of the pres
ent engineers Sad to relate, H. C. Har
ris, the present incumbent, only found one
supporter when the street commissioner
ship came up. The strongest candidates
were John Huntoon and Alfred Coyne
Dr. G. G. Evster was the choice for
health commissioner, with Dr. C. B. K.n
yon a close second. Although no vote
was taken the expression was unanimous
for the retention of Pail Miller as chief
of police. The aldermen did not desire
to express themselves on patrolmen, evi
dently feeling that tbeir time woull be
wasted, and this arduous task was left to
the mayor and Chief Miller.
Many cf the aldermen subsequently
protested acainst being used to pull
the mayor's chestnuts out of the fire, in
timating i re'ety strongly that his honor
would do as he pleased, anyhow.
