A serious fight took place at Dimock,
Gould & Company's saw mill at Moline
Tuesday night. It was started by a
Davenporter named Boyce. who had been
discharged for drunkenness. He went
there after the circus with two or three
friends and was going to do up the man
who took his place. He began hostilities
by throwing a broadaxe at his successor
and cutting a severe gash on the latter's
arm. The other men who were working
near the injured man thereupon turned
to and droye Boyce and his gang out of
tbe yard in a jiffy, giving them a well
deserved pounding. Boyce has been
discharged from nearly every mill in Abe
three towns for the same cause, and is a
A HITCH. .

Htreet 1'ar Company and Paving
Contractor The Ci'3' Pneittoa.
There is a hitch in tbe paving progress
east of Twenty-third street on Moline av
enue, which is due to a misunderstanding
between the contractors. Edwards &
Walsh, and the Davenport & Rck Island
Street Railway company, over a matter
of excavating and grading the Btreet car
tracks. While both sides are firm iu
what they w;ll aod what they wont do,
it-looks to a disinterested psrson as if tbe
cause of dispute w,iso small a matter i
ibat the mayor ouht to step in and ad-
just tbe matter, ao 1 stop the fuss Sua
erintenJenl Scbnifier, of the street rail- '
way company, claims that the contrac
tors should excavite his tricks before he
can bring them to grade, which he is '
willing to do as required, but that this i
all that is req jire l of bim Mr. Walsh,
of the contractors, asserts that the street,
car company should keep a block and
a half ahead of bim in moving the tracks
and bringing them tfgrde, and that he
will see that the proper exciviiion is
done. The Akgus is not prepared to
sy who has the right of tbe matter, but
thecity is evidently judge of the situa
tion and should ste that its interests are
not uermitted to suffer because of a con
troversy between the street car company
and the contractors. Themyor looked
over the ground this morning, and tc
afternoon informed an jtfcs 'reporter
who called oa him thai he was entirely
conversant with tie situation, but that
he thought tbe trouble would be adjusted
without dely, and that at ail event the

A rather sensational phase in the Mo
line gambling case d.-veloped this morn
ing, when j ast af cjurt adjourned. Con
stable Bonham. of Moline, stepped up to
W. S. Deveraux. the Chicago detective,
who worked up the case against the ac
cused, and arrested him on a charge of
adultery, alleged to have been committed
with one Cad Allen, a married woman in
Moline, and the complaint is said to bave
been sworn out by Louis Grimmes, one
of the parties who are being prosecuted.
The prisoner was taken to Moline for
preliminary bearing before Justice Kerns,
where State's Attorney Sturgeon dis
missed the case and intimated pretty
strongly if any further efforts were made
to interfere with the court cses,he would
make it warm for the instigator.
Yesterday afternoon and this morning
was devoted to arguing the notions to
quash and dismiss tne motions, both be
ing overruled. The case of Jacob Sny
der, charged with permitting gambling
in a tavern, was the Brst case called and
a jury selected, after which court ad
journed until tomorrow morning at 9
o'clock. The jury is composed o! the
following: A. Scbaffer, Hans Schave, C.
