The Moline Republican-Journal of last
evening contained the following:
John 8, Prince, of Denver, tbe world's
long-distauce champion, who announced
in a recent is9ue of the Repub!ican-.Tour
nal bis intention of holding a bicycle
tournament on the Ktdman tract between
the two cities, has given up the enterprise
On this side of the river for reasons not
vet made public. The probability is,
however, tbat tbe local wheelmen did not
take sufficient interest in the tournament
from Prince's standpoint. The reporter
interviewed one of the Moline experts,
whom Prince announced as having en
tered, and he sta'es that Priace is a funny
fellow, to say the least. When he
(Prince) approached him, tbe champion
was positively informed that he would
not enter under any circumstances. Then,
it seems. Prince came d'.rectiv to this
cfllce. and handed in the nfortsa;d wheel
man's name a3 one of the piospective
Pnnce, it seems, is now in Davenport,
and tody, under bis direction, work was
begun on an oval 12 lap raipie trick at
the bail park, and it U expected lbs wirk
will be done so that rider can use it for
training on tbe coming Friday. It wiil
be 23 feet in width, and there wiil be c
comoiodatiom for the 6pecutor. lie
proposes to hold what he cills a tri-city
tournament, beginning next Monday and
continuing six evenincs, but it is doubt
ful if the wheelmen of Moline will feel
like going to the west end of nowhere to
take part in Mr. Prince's enterprise with
out acy positive or prospective reward.
This man Prince has treated Rock Isl
and in pretty much the same way he has
Moline. lie came here in response to
encouragement offered by people in Rock
Inland, and immediately determined to
locate his bicyle course on th3 Ho i man
property on Moline avenue between
Rock Is'and and Moline. He visited the
newspaper ofBors. to'd a very ttnootU
story, and got. all the free advertising he
could. The next we hear of him he has
dropped the twin cities and is in Daven
port, having changed his plan of oper
ations entirely. Whether the camivalcom
mittee there saw him or not and persuad
ed htm to abimion ! h purpose here is not
known, neither is it known to it anyone
cares. It is eertalu t'j'it some very elab
orate inducements miiKt h'ive t een c f
fered this "Prince" of fellows to get him
to abandon a location on tiie most travel
ed thoroughfare in the three cities for a
site two miles from tbe business prt of
tie city of Divenport. However, the
twin cities are sbeMiog no tera over the
loss of Prince. He has shown his true
nature at the proper stage of the game,
and Rock Islsnl bicyclists and others will
steer clear of him and his attraction.

J. C. Fleming, of Port Byron, bad a
narrow escape the other night from being
asphyxiated in the Keator house, Moline.
He is a bookkeeper for the Gilchrist, and
withal a genial, steady and well re
spected man . He is a brother of the late
Dr. Wilson Flemine, and is on the shady
side of 50. Tbe Dispatch siys:
J. C. has lots of friends in Moline, and
the carnival and fair has probably afforded
him a little holiday, of the kind on which
men smile on invitation, and then ask
their friends to smile again smiling wi h
them each time. Mr. Fleming occupied
room 29 at the Keamr last night. About
11 o'clock Lmdlord P. A. Merry man paid
a fortunate visit to the fourth floor and to
the ncighbordood t f to jtn 29. his object
being to escort a new-comer to a room in
thai part of the hotel. Fleming had
either blown out the gas, or had turned
it on again after turning it out. . His
room was full of eas, which was escaping
into the halls. Fortunately he had not
locked thrill. or. Mr. Merryman entered,
and with d fliculty managed to rjach anil
open a window. Fleming was as nearly
asphyxiated as a man can well be and
still recover. His body had become
rieid, and it was impossible to wake him
He waj carried to the open window, but
it was a long time before be awakened
and began to come out of bis unnatural
lethargy. He has no explanation to make
of how the thing happened.
