season's ork. The location of tbe
grounds having been definitely settled,
work will be begun at once to get them
in rrder, ai d will be poshed to comple
tion. The grand stand will be built on
tho north side facing south, and tbe
bleachers just to the west, so that the main
entrance ill be on the Fifth avenue
side, the bsck gale being on Seventh ave
nue. The grounds will be readily access
ible en ac ount of a street car line on
each side, with cars every feven and one
half minu es. They will certainly be
found very convenient for business men,
wbo will n ot be compelled to leave their
business iti til perhaps 3 o'clock, which
will give them ample time to be on hand
at the ope ling of the game. Another
feature b rh would no doubt be an
aura- live one is being talked of by tbe
manxtrement. Manager Heath, of tbe
Western Union Telegraph t fflce, will
make a pn position to cut an instrument
into the prautds and fcrn'sh the score of
the Nation il league and other gtmes by
innings ai d at the same time report the
innings of the game here. The scheme
would be 13 place the score on a laree
score boarr! tbe same as is done in the
larger cities, and if introduced here there
is no doubt but what it would add ma
terially to me interest in the local game.
The tow os that comprise the circuit of
the two eyed league are all good base
ball towns and have supported good clubs
in past set sons, and there is every indica
tion that tuey will nil be in it to tbe close
of the seas Dn. Tbe Twin-Cities have a
population of 60.000 in the three cities t
draw fr m which is the largest of any of
the towns in tbe circuit, Eransville
coming n xt with a population of
a trifle over aO.000, and Peoria
iex'. with hbou-. 41,000. From this it
will be feen that the prospects of the local
team for the season are as bright as
the bright! st. Ttrre Haute and Evsds
ville are signing their plajers. and it is
understood that a number of those who
helped to keep Peoria in the front ranks
last si-a-on will be with the Terre Haute
this year. Although the Joliet team is
crmi osed of men whose individual aver

to be i xrei dngly ragged at times, and

Tbe home team will open the season at
Peoria one week from tomorrow, and
though they have bad scarcely any prac

and Other Tented combinations.
B. F. Tillinghast, managing editor of
the Davenport Democrat, is writing his
paper a series of letters from the east in
his customarily entertaining and pointed
style. In one appearing this morning be
chats about shows, and gives a little con
versation with "Tody" Hamilton, for 11
years Barnum's right hand man, and now
.lames A. Biiley's best bower, and
from i im the correspondent obtains facts
substanciating previous explanations
of wby the Barnum shows have
not visited Davenport since 1881, coming
to Rock Island instead. After stating that
the aggregation will visit Rock Island
late in theseaon,the Democrat represen
tative writes f the following trick once
played by Davenport on the Barnum
"Is tbe circus coming to Davenport
ibis season?" the westerner queried.
"N , sir," responded Mr Hamilton, with
painful frankness. Not quite crushed,
another stab was ventured, and it was
parried with equal candor.
"Davenport is not in it, neither for
Barnum & Bailey nor for Forepaugh, or
any other big show." The boycotting
business was getting locally interesting.
A bottle of Lithia was opened, that was
the only persuasion Mr. Hamilton was
subject to, and he was. induced to pro
ceed. "You remember Barnum was in Daven
port the day tbe Garfield memorial obse
quies were held in September, 1881. Tie
stand wr out at tbe fair ground and Mr.
Claussen, a Mr. Martin, and a Mr. Lane
were the speakers. They were all good
ouea for a town of Davenport's size and
I listened to their eulogies with much in
terest. There was a big crowd in the
place called there by the circus and also
by the patriotic programme. We give
our best pirade daring the forenoon and
i :uld easily have filled the ten's
in the afternoon. Mind you the
daily outlay: was upwards of
$6,000 Your committee came to
the manager, and tbe result was that the
Barnum band played for the long funeral
procession, and we didn't give an after
nocn txhibition. You taxed us $500
for that evening performance and refused
to remit a dollar. This is why our show
and all others go around Davenport, and
they always will keep away from that sort
of confidence game. It can be played
once, but not twice."
I told Mr. Hamilton that tbe Diven
port of today is quite another town; that
while it may bavj looked like a burying
tround a decade ago.' that it ie thi best
city in Iowa in 1893. He wouldn't be

An official copy of tbe letter from the
secretary of the treasury transmitting to
congress an estimate of tbe appropriation
submitted by tbe secretary of war for tt3
improvement of the roadways of tie
Rock Island bridges has been received.
Accompanying 'be letter is the commun
ication from L Aj Grant, acting secretary
of war, and that of Gen. D. W. Flagler,
chief of ordnancej favoring the appro-,
priation. Gen. Flagler quotes the com
manding officer at th-j arsenal. Col Buf

woeden joists show dangerous deflections
under the traffic; now going over tbe
bridges, and adds: ' In tbe interest of
true economy and of tbe safety of tbe
public, I earnestly recommend that con
gress be requested to take early and fa
vorable action on this estimate. The
matter was referred to tbe bouse com
inittte on appropriations on the 11th inst.
and today Hon. C. A. Ficke, of D. ven

before the committee to argue in favor
of the appropriation.
