THAT'S WHAT TALKS.
The Twin City learn arrived home yes
terday and Bpent the day gettiDg ac
quainted nbout town. Saturday's game
at Q lincy was played in the rain, the
game beir g called at the end of the sev
enth inning on thataccount. The boys re
ceived their second shut out of the season
at Quincy, the score standing 4 to 0 when
the game was called. While the boys
have not played the best of ball, they
have not been such an easy mark as might
be imagined. In nearly every instance
the oppos Bg team played ball to win the
game, and with home grounds and a
crowd U back them, they will
no doutt play a winning game.
Manager age, while not overly enthusi
astic at the work of the club on the trip,
is satisfied that it will now begin to pick
up and wi 1 gradually work its way up to
a better position. In today's game Bart
son, who i pent Sunday nt his homo in
Peoria, is in the box, wiih Zsis behind
the bat. Mackey, Dalu and Housman
are in the outfield.. Sae will play first
and O'Daj sicond, while Nulton will
hold down his old position at third, and
Lynch wil play short. There will in all
probability be a lare attendance at to
day's a nit ag a number of the shops
closed down in order to give the employes
a chance to attend.
The opeaiog game today was attended
by a suital le demonstration. Flags and
buntiog in profusion dtcorated the busi-
LesshouseH, and many residences elso
displayed artistic decorations. In the
afternoon a procession was formed of
carriages containing the two teams and
visiting bise ball magnates, besides a
Urge number of Tri-City fans. It was
headed by Bleuer's band, and after parad
ing the streets led a large crowd of en
thusiastic ball cranks to the Twin-Citv
park, where the game was called at 3:30.

the Male or ita turret Car Line to
Eastern t'apltalisia-Rock Island's
The Freeport street car line has been
practically sold and there is little doubt
that it will be controlled by eastern par
ties after the first of next month. The
news will be peculiarly interesting to
Rock Island people in yiew of the fact
that lhe purchase and consolidation of the
tn-city lines was the keynote to the pro
gress and prosperity now seen on every
hand in the cities of Rock Island, Moline
The Bulletin views the change about to
transpire in Freeport in the light of philos
ophy, and commenting on the announce
ment of the transfer, says:
This will indeed be cheering news to
the hundreds of people in Freeport who
want to tee a more complete system of
rapid transit in Freeport. They have no
fault to find with the present owners of
the line, but they are strong in their be
lief that if cars are run oftener and the
line enlarged it would be of more benefit
to all parties concerned, both in a finan
cial and a public way.
The gentlemen who will control the
plant after the first of next month are
eastern capitalists. They are men of
money and no expense will be spared to
make the line one of the moBt complete in
the west. They are men who have given
many years of attention to the studying
of the electric system of operating cars,
in fact they are the owners of numerous
plants in the east and their knowledge of
how to conduct a system of electric cars
When they assume control of the line
it will be extended to near.v everv Dart
of the town. In fac a loop will be laid
around the town. It is their present
intention to build at least five and
oneshalf or six miles of new track
and m all will spend about $100,000
The system of electricity used to operate
the cars will he of the latest improved,
such as is being used to run cars in the
large cities in the east.
The company that will assume the
ownership of the line, if ths deal is con
sumated, and there is no doubt but that it
will be, firmly believe that the investment
will be a paying one. Tbey" realize that
Freeport is a growing town and it needs
a system of electric car service.
Tne new deal will be of great benefit to
the people in more than one way. Es
pecially will it be hailed with delight by
owners of suburban real estate, as it will
increase the value of thiir property to a
Samuel McCormick was arrested on
Saturday on a warrant charging him with
burglary. It was on complaint of James
Powell.- Both men were employed at a
brick yard on Elm street, and Powell
claims that on the 8th inst. he aad Mc
Cormick were in a barn talking when
Powell was called to dinner, and that after
eating his meal he returned to the barn
and found his trunk which he had kept
there, broken open and some clothing
missing. He alleges that he afterward
found the clothing at a neighboring
butcher shop where McCormick had
pawned it. He will probably be allowed
to go into the county court and plead
to the charge.
