The city council had an important ses
sion last evening.
On Aid. Evans' motion it was finally
determined to remove the dump boat to
the lower end of the city, and it is hoped
this long standing nuisance will now be
done away with.
The council went into the paving busi
ness with a vim. Tbe contract was lei to
the Rockford Construction company for
the supplementary work on East and
West Seventeenth, Sixteenth, Fiftbteenth
and Fourteenth streets,' that company be
ing the only one bidding, and very prop
erly was awarded the work. Manager Rut.
ledre stated to an Argus reporter after the
c -uucil niaeting, that tbe job would un
q'ietirably be done this fall, and it is
; t probable the block on Fourteenth,
between Second and Tnird will be boule
vartled. TbH council also referred Aid.
Bidet's ordmauce for the paving of
Fourth avenue (from First to Twen
tieth, andjfrom Twenty-third to Twenty-fourth,
and of Twenty-fourth, from
Third to FiflhJ avenue, and decided fur
ther to pave Twentieth street south of
Ninth avenue wilh brick, both of which
undertakings will be accomplished next
season beyond doubt. The council
adopted the plan of properly grading
Fourteenth avenue from Thirtieth to
Thirty-eighth street, as heretofore de
scribed in The Akous, and let the con
tract for tbe work at once, so that it will
be done without unnecessary delay.
City Attorney Haas submitted a fur
ther communication in the Gest case, set
ting forth the impracticability as far as
the city is concerned of permitting the
plaintiff to dictate the city's course as
well as his own, and holding that the
question of damage; if tbe plaintiff can
claim any of the city is a matter entire
ly for court and jury to determine.
The letter was pli.ced on file, the coun
cil took action with reference to divers
other matters us shown by tbe official
record, and adjourned to next Monday

Yeaterday's Kxhibltion at Twin City
Hall Park IMd Not Io the liime Any
The management of the Twin City
team decided yesterday afternoon to have
a game of ball, but when it came time to
get on tbe field it was found that through
Manager Sage's courtesy O'Day and
Collins had gone fishing. Cunningham
was also absent, but he had an excuse,
he having obtained permission to go to
Peoria. After considerable trouble Man
ager Sage persuaded Bartson to go into
the box, which he did reluctantly, and in
order to show his displeasure at this
action of bis manager in putting him in,
he put up tbe worst h&zy-gazy game of
ball that has been seen here this season.
The visitors, of course, tried to kill the
dinky-doo balls that he passed up and as.
is often tbe case, fell down in trying to
do it, Paddy Wright being the only one
who got the ball over the fence. Bart
son's work, while it turned out to be an
enigma for the visitors, was not intended
that way, and it was not his fault that
they didn't lose every ball thrown up.
There is no dcubt about there being
science in dinkey-doo pitchice, but when
a pitcher tells his manager loud enough
for every one in the grandstand to hear
it that he doesn't intend to pitch, and
shows it by bis subsequent actions, it
isn't science by any means, and Mr.
Bartson dropped several pegs in public
estimation by bis wishy-washy playing
yesterday. You can gain enough about
the game perhaps by the following sum

If tbe local management wants to kill
its patronage entirely it will continue
such exhibitions as that of yesterday .
The man who pays bis money to see an
exhibition game is just as much entitled
to his money's worth as if he had paid
admission to a championship contest, and
the players under no circumstances are
licensed to make clowns of themselves.
They are paid good silaries for their
work, and are not their own bosses on the
tall field. The quicker somebody
teaches them this much the better for the
game in the Twin-Cities.

Switchman Puebles Crnshed by

George W. Puebles. a C , B. & Q.
switchman, was run down and killed by
Engine No. 13, of the Rock Island &
Peoria road shortly before 2 o'clock this
afternoon at the crossing at tbe foot of
Eighteenth street. The unfortunate
man was switching with Engine 351, of
the C, B. & Q., and was at work draw
ing out some cars off one of the new
tracks. At the time of the accident a C,
B. & Q. freight train was just pulling
into town, and it is supposed that be
tween the noise from both trains he did
not notice the Peoria engine that was be
ing backed down to the round house
by Ilostler John Williams,
and slipped upon the track,
iust in front of it. It was a shocking
fate, tbe wheels having passed directly
over him, cutting him in half. Hostler
Williams states that he was ringing bis
bell, and running slowly, as be always does
at that point, and which is corroborated
by Flagman Mougin. Death was almost
The unfortunate switchman had only
been in the city about a week, having
come up from bis home in Medora, III.,
to take another switchman's place while
he took a lay-off. He was unmarried and
about 25 years of age.
George Dolan, William Ward and
Daniel Burn were each fined $5 and
costs in the police court this mornia
the firs' two for intoxication, and the
latter for disorderly conduct.
William Cansdale of Cordova, was
brought down to the city by Constable
Tew of that place last night, and placed
in the county jail, haying been arrested
on a warrant sworn out here yesterday
afternoon, charging him with adultery
Tbe case will probably bring out some
sensational developments as it is claimed
that Cansdale duped a young lady of that
place, one Miss Mary Stratton by name,
by having a mock marriage performed in
Davenport early this spring. Mrs. Strats
ton, the girl's mother, has since been do
ing a little detective work on the side
and now claims that no marriage license
was ever issued, either here or in Daven
port, and therefore charges Cansdale with
the offense mentioned.
