The locals won another game from the
Jacksonville! this morning, the prettiest
game that has been played on the home
grounds ibis season. Cunningham and
Clark were the opposing pitchers, and
both worked like confidence men to
win the game, while the balance of both
teams played with a snap that brought
joy to the hearts cf the fans and put the
game on record as one of the finest. The
field work was clean and pretty, while
the home team in particular played with
a dash that, had it been on a - Sunday
with the park full of people, they could
willingly have had the town. Nulton's
work at third and Pat Wright's at second
were the features of the game. Below i9

Only a small crowd witnessed the game
at Twin City park yesterday afternoon,
which was won by the locals on the start,
the risitors not being in it at any stage of
the game. Collins pitched a beautiful
game, holding the Jacks down to fiur
stingy little hits, while Sage's men
straightened out 13 of Oragg's zigzags
into safe hits. The visitors were unable
to do anything in the way of run getting,
their onlv score being obtained through
Umpire McGinley'e construction of rules.

Tommy Ryan, the champion welter
weight pugilist, who worsted Wilks at
Omaha last Satnrday night, is expected
in the city daily. The Bee says there
can be no possibility of doubt as to Ryan
winniue the fight, and in giving the fight
in detail, round by round, it says:
la the tenth Ryan smashed him right
and left, forcing him all over the ring
and making a veritable monkey of him.
He was bleeding like a stuck pig and was
so week and groggy that it looked im
possible for him to come again. - But he
did, only, however, to be made a chop
ping block of. At the end of the eleventh
round Wilks' Corner was a pool of blood
and Lis handlers bad to send for sawdust
and sprinkle it liberally ou the floor to
give bim a chance to leave his corner
The twelfth was another great round
for Ryan, and in it he should - have
knocked Wilks ont. But he preferred
to take no chances of having any of his
blows construed Into a foul. -No man
ever saw a fairer fighter. He act
ually held Wilks upon his feet,
bat refrained from hitting him simply
because he saw that it would be
needleaa cruelty. He would shove him
away and then punch him in the face
when, be got well balanced and on his
feet. W hile gaeae and honest aa a man
could possibly , be WUks was never in
the fight. He never landed but one or
two ineffectual blows, and Ryan could
have whipped three more like him in the
same ripg. , ;., - . -vt
The referee had no more right to do
clare the fight a draw than he bad to
award it to Joun L. Sullivan, 2.000
miles away. There is no earthly end to
be served in reading a repetition of the
rounds. They were all alike all Ryan's
clearly, unequivocally, honestly. Wilks
couldn't hit him, while he landed on
Wilka raw frontispiece at will. The St.
Louis man resembled a stuck pig rather
than a man, clear from 'the fifth to the
This was the seventeenth. Wilks
was bathed in blood from head to foot,
and so groggy that but one more feeble
punch, possibly, was all that was neces
sary to knock him out. The chief of po
lice of South Omaha loomed up at the
Bide of the ring and declared that it was
Sunday morning, and the fight must
cease. At this time it was just 28 min
utes of 12. v
The referee without a moment's delay
declared the fight a draw. .
The big crowd howled in derision at
the idea, and for a few moments it looked
like trouble. Rut in prize fights there is no
going behind the referee's decision, and
thus ended Ed. Johnson's last prize fight.
It might be well to add here that every
blow Ryan delivered the Wilks follow
ers shouted foul, and Ryan saw that he
must be doubly guarded.
BilliarJist "Billy" Catton has arrived
in New York from Paris. He got in on
the French steamer on Saturday and is
going back to Paris to rejoin Schaefer,
with whom he sailed in June, when
Schaefer went to Paris to play Ives for
the world's championship emblem. Cat
ton came over to take Schaefer's wife to
Paris. He says there is a great deal of
money to be made in billiards in Paris
now, confirming Slosson's assertion in
his recent letter. Catton has played
some good billiards on the other eiue.
THE EVENTS AT DAVEXPOKT.
The Openlos of the Mile Track, the
Carnival aoa Other Kent ares.
The Davenport mile track and kindred
attractions opened auspiciously yester
day, a large number cf strangers being
drawn by the events of the week. The
enterprise and public spirit shown in the
arrangement of the track, amphitheatre
and other buildings is highly commend
able of those composing the Mile Track
club, the track in particular having been
pronounced by experienced turfmen, in
cluding C. W. Williams, of Independ
ence, one of the best in the country, and
unquestionably tha beat in Iowa. Not
oniy is it so constructed as to afford an
alvantageous view all the way round,
but practically speaking it is fast as well.
Woile owine to the weatner conditions
which have interfered so seriously with
public enterprises in all three cities this
year, all the buildings are not yet com
pleted, enough has been done to indicate
the splendid plan upon which everything
is to be done. Strassei's band furnished
delightful music at intervals.
The first race called was the 2:40 class
for two-year-olds and purse of $500.
Bromide won the race in 2:42.
The second race was the 2:24 class,
purse $1,000. There were 12 starters.
Martha took first money, the best time
The third race was the 2:23 pacing
class for a purse of $750. Lena Willets
took first money, the best time being
Last night ocurred Davenport's annua!
river carnival, which was viewed by
thousands of people on both sidee of the
river, the temporary amphitheatre erected
on the Davenport shore, being well filled,
offering as it did a delightful opportunity
of witnessing the various features of the
display. The carnival was much more
creditably managed than has been the
case heretofore. There was lees delay,
and the carnival itself quite an improve
ment on that of a year ago. There were
more boats in the fire fleet, and they were
more elaborately decorated and illumin
ated. The display of Venetian lights,
and other pyrotechnic effects from the
barge stationed in midstream, the rock
ets, set pieces,' etc., were all rich and
Today's races are among the best of
the week, including the Allerton and
Lobasco trot for a $10,000 puree, though
some good attractions have been reserved
for tomorrow and the succeeding days of
the week. This evening occuts the stu

INSTRUCTIONS TO VOTERS.
Secretary mt State Peamen Shawlnc
HIs Partiality for Brpablteane.
The secretary of state is engaged In
sending to county clerks a printed form
of instructions to voters for ihe Novem
ber election, 1692. for the alleged pur
pose of "aiding in the successful opera
tion of the Australian ballot law" and
for "securing uniformity throughout the
state in the form of instructions to be
used." The form will not become official
until approved by the county clerk, and
prominent democrats have suggested that
democratic county clerks use Secretary
Pearson's form with care, for the reason
that the law does not make it any part
of the duty of that officer to it struct
voters in the use of the ballot and is
giving the republican party a prominence
that the law does not warrant. One of
the secretary's suggestions is this: "At
the top of the column (on the ballot) you
will find the name of each party ticket or
list of candidates as republicans, demo
cratic, prohibition, independent," etc. It
will be noticed that its secretary places
the word "republican" first, which is not
in accordance with the law, which in
setting out a form for printtd ballot,
places the democratic ticket or list ot
candidates first on the sheet. It is sug
gested that those democratic clerks who
adopt Secretary Pearson's form should
adhere to the form of ballot as set forth
in the law and give the democratic ticket
precedence on the ballot sheet.
An Inebriate's Fate.
John Wolenstencraft, a well known

standing, died suddenly Monday evening
in the tremens. He was 48 years of age
On Friday last be applied at the Morrell
institute f?r the 1 quor cure. He ac
knowledged having heart trouble and
kidney complaint, having a tendency at
times to t'ropsy. He was seen to be in a
decidediy critical condition, and to be
suffering from delirium tremens. He
was advised that he would suffer greatly
should he take treatment in the condi
tion iu which he was. But he insisted,
saying that liquor was killing him at any
rate, and he could not live much longer
without help. He was sincerely anxious
to throw off his bondage to the liquor
habit. His case was taken in hand, and
medicines were given him to brace his
nerves, and to prepare him for a vigor
ous treatment later. The liquor cure
had been given him only in very small
doses. Suffering from tremens, as he
was, wbUky was prescribed to be given
him every three hours, but his daughter
thought it not necessary to give it to him
so often, but it was apparently too lte to
effect a cure.
