AT TWIN-CITY PARK.
Yestirday's Game With Terre
lit ute Called on Account Rain.
SItrkry. Our (Slippery t,vft Fielder
At aln Falls to R port Kor Doty
Call a Oown by the Man.
The second game of the Terre Haute
series at Twin City park was called yes
terday afternoon on account of rain. Only
four ianings had been played, the score
stand rig 3 to 2 in favor of the home
team. The members of Manager Sage's
club cidn't go on the field yesterday with
their usual vim. They sauntered out on
the fit Id like a man coming home from
work, and when they went after a ball it
wasn't with that snap that characterized
their work in the past few games. Ei
ther the previous day's rest didn't agree
with them or they were likely not feeling
well. The game was started all right
and our bos had the bes of it as
far (s they went, but Terre Haute
has 8 rue athletic re ntleraen who act like
ball lajirs anil will probably cive the
home tebm a good rub in today's game.
Whether the arrival of Rainey, Terre
J Hauti's new short stop, had anything to
do w th making the same condition of
wjatlicr yehterday is not known, but he
will t o doubt add lo the team's strength
materially. The boys need some more of
last v.etk's push. The ball park is no
place for a funeral and uuick, active, en
erget c players are what take with the
people. iThis afternoon the Terre Hautes
and Twin Citjs play the last game of the
Ye-itirday's games resulted as follows:

Mickey's conduct in deserting the club
Sundiy night without leave or license
has rrov(n a r.erplesing question toMan
afccr Sdgc, who has been in something of
a quanc'ary as to what course he ought to
pur&i.e in the premises. Mackcy told
tome of the other players before leaving
that he was too fast for the company he
I was playing in and would not return,
j The trutn of tbe matter is one of the
I other clubs of the league has been tam
pering with the players of the other
cluiif. Overtures have been m&dc not
only to Mackcy, but others of our players
and also to Trost, of the P-orias. It
therefore behooves tfce local management
to thke a decided stand in Mackcy 's case.
O herwisa an exceedingly dangerous pre
cedent would be established. It is es
sentia to the club's protection
and preservation that Mackey
be t rought to lime. Realizing this
Prcs dent Ilodges this morning tele
grapned Mackey to report at once or he
would be blacklisted. When he returns
he will be suspended until be arrives at a
Bensc of decency and taught that if other
clubs deeirc his services they are to con
sult '.he management, which ia proper un
der tbe national agreement of base ball
regu attons. Mackey is not so brilliant
a star but w hut we can do without him
if he is disposed to display a lack of prin
ciple and alsotreachery, but when he goes
it mi. st be on terms agreeable to the man
agement. He was Eigned to play ball
with the Rock Island-Moline club and he
must do it until tbe club releases him.
That it will not do simply because another
club wants Mackey's services. They
don't do business that way in baBe ball.
PEOllIA FRANCHISE TRANSFERRED TO AU
The base ball enthusiasts of Aurora
at a meeting held there last evening de
cided to accept the proposition made by
Secretary McCaull, and accordingly the
Peotia club will be transferred to Aurora.
Tbe new management does not assume
any of the indebtedness of the old one,
but the club will retain its position in the
percentage column. The change will
occur at once, and tbe team will leave
the distillery town and play its first game
at its new home on Thursday. Aurora
is virtually tbe home of the I-I league, as
it wiis there it was first organized in
February, 1890. Aurora finished the sea
son ihat year in third place, but in 1891
she only laBted until tbe latter part of
May when she dropped out. Aurora is a
good ball town and will probably play
out the seaion.
CAUGHT ON THK FLY.
The Lome team leave for Qaincy to
night where they play three games, re
turning for two earnes on Memorial day.
Bitse ball can't belp but succeed in
Lowell, observes tbe Chicago Tribune,
because there are four reporters and two
palhsemen on tbe board of directors.
Such players as Mackcy ought to be
made an example of, not re'. eased, but
suspended until be comes to his senses.
The object of seeking protection from
the National league is to handle men of
If tbe local management should per
mit its players to leave town whenever
they see fit, without consulting the man
ager lent, we might as well go out of the
base ball business. The stockholders of
the Twin City club did not contribute
their money for the purpose of establish
ing a school for players for other teams
to daw from. If other clubs wast our
men they should pay for them.
ATOUB, WEDNESDAY, MA if z5,
THE COLUMBIAN JUBILEE.
More Abnnt the; Kxienoive Arrange
ment Tor the Viand Celebration
The committee of e'even for the grand
Columbian Fourth of July celebration
held a meeting at the rooms of the Citi
zens' Improvement association yesterday
afternoon for the purpose of making
further arrangements to make it a mem
orable eyent. M. T. Cady presided in
the absence or Capt. M. W. Lyon. The
chairman of each committee appointed
submitted estimates of the amount of
money that would be required to carry
out the various portions of the pro
gramme in firat-class style. Judging from
the amount set aside for tbe use of each
committee and the enthusiasm manifested
by those in charge, which is brought on
byahe hearty encouragement that is being
met wi'h on every hand, the affair will
mark a red letter day in the history of the
Twin.Citie8, and will be the grandest cel
ebration ever held in this section . The
committee on music reported that three
fall bands would be engaged,
oae from each of the Tri-Cities for the
en'.ire day which would make an aggre
gate of 60 pieces and in addition to
which a children's chorns of 1,000 voices
who are now being rehearsed by Prof.
Hartsough, will participate. Another
very attractive feature will be tbe mil
itary one. Col. Clendenin of the Sixth
regiment I, N. Q. who was requested
to endeavor to secure the entire regi
ment for a parade on that day and
a dress parade in the evening reported
that in all probability nearly every one
of the 12 companies would be present
in response to the invitation.
All our citizens seem to feel a confi
dence in the undertaking -that is indeed
gratifying. President Liulerback upon
learning of the plans of the committed
yesterday sent a telegraph order for the
construction of four new motors to
be ready by that time in order that tbe
company may do its best in handling the
crowds on that today. The committee
desires that all who wish to bid on
ground privileges for that day to call on
or address Capt. J. M. Beardsley.
Umpire Cavanaugh was arrested by
Bailiffs Bisant and Ward at the close of
yesterday's ball game, on information
filed by W. A. Corcoran charging him
with assault and battery. Cavanaugh
voluntarily went before Magistrate Wivill
in the morning and fleaded guilty to an
assault, which comes under the city ordi
nance, but Corcoran not satisfied showed
a vicdictive spirit by wai'ing until late
in tbe afternoon, and then filing infor
mation in tbe county court in the hopes
of humiliating Civanauh by having him
Uken from the ball field. While the as
s tult by Cavanaugh was looked upon by
the public at first as unprovoked, yet the
latter ection of Corcoran in following out
a studied course of vindictiveness has
tended to recerse that sentiment, and
places Corcoran in a different light in tbe
eyes of the people at? large.
Corcoran also swore out a peace war
rant against Umpire Cavanaugh this
morning, but the latter's friends immedi
ately signed a bond and he was released .
Edward Martin, of Buffilo Prairie,
was brought before Magistrate Wivill late
yesterday afternoon on a warrant sworn
out by Miss Electa Johnson, of the same
township, charging him with being the
father of ber illegitimate child. It seems
that some time ago the parents of the
young couple met in Mu3catine and set
tled the affair by Martin's father paying
the girl the sum of $300, but the latter
since learned that in accordance with a
law recently passed it could not be set
tled for less than $450. that amount be
ing the sum stipulated by the statute.
She accordingly swore out the warrant
and Martin was bound over by Magistrate
Wivill to the county court. The matter
was settled shortly after by the defend
ant paying the additionol $150 and costs
of the prosecution.
The case of Cation & O'Connor charged
with keeping a gambling bouse came up
before 'Squire Uawes this morning, Maj.
Beardsley appearing for the defendants.
State's Attorney Sturgeon dismissed the
case there and filed i .formation in tbe
county court charging tbe same offense.
'Way Down In Drary.
Over tbe river to Illinois. That is
where nearly 500 residents, large and
small, young and old, of Muecatine went
yesterday. A constant stream of people
made good use of the high bridge yester
day, and dozens of the boys in skiffs
were pushing their way around in the Illi
nois bottoms. Had the weather been
less threatening In the afternoon fully
double the number would have made the
trip. Everybody walked, for driving,
except on the bridge and for a short dis
tmce on the "dug road, is out of the
question. Many citizens, who were un
aware of the true state of tbe road over
there and who hardly b.lieved the state
ments of tbe press that a few hours work
and a few loads ef rock, kraut and dirt
would make them passable, saw- and
were conyinced of the truth of such state
ments The water crosses the road in three
different places as far as yesterday's
strollers could obseive, for the last break
was too large to cross. Above it tbe
water was apparently quiet and passive,
but it poured across the road with a rush
and roar that resembled up river rapids.
Drury township . shauld repair the
breaks before they become to large that
tbe expense will be treble what the cost
of repair , would now be. Muscatine
