ALLERTON IS LAMED.
The Great Trotting stallion Meets

Ihe Davrapert Trttb-The
Eleven thousand people attended the
raceB at the Davenport mile track yester
day afternoon, an immense number being
present from this city.
The first race of the day was the
8 minute class, purse $1,000. Vera won
the race in straight heats, with best time
The grand special $10,000 race be
tween Allerton and Lobasco was then
announced. Starter Harvey Loper ad
dressed the andience. introducing M. E.
McHenry, of Freeport, III., and his
splendid Lobasco and C. W. Williams,
"the luckiest man on the turf," and
Allerton, the kins; of the turf. Cheers
upon cheers greeted the speech as the
beautiful animals, both in the pink of
condition, paraded before the stand to
lamest for the $10,000 purse. The
urt heat was a dead heat, the time being
2:15. In the second heat Allerton won,
though Lobasco's nose was on the win
ner's flank as the wire was crossed, the
time being 2:13. thus lowering Lo
basco's former record of 2:15 In the
third heat Allerton had a big lead, and
Williams started out to lower the stallion
record now held by Delmarch in a race.
Allerton was doing as his master desired,
too, but at the turn he broke, and while
Williams was bringing him back to earth
again McHenry pushed Lobasco to the
pole and stole home in 2:17, Allerton
walking, half limping in through a mob
of bowling dervishes in 2:26. It was a
bad break and a good deal worse. Aller
ton was speedy enough. The quarters
were 84, 1:07. 1:39 J. The time was
reduced on the three-quarter post in
every heat. Just .past the post the break

Williams asked to draw Allerton. He
sta'ed that the horse had struck himserf
im making the turn, and that a tendon on
the inside of his right hind leg was badly
strain d, so that another beat with him
was out of the question. The suffering
horse was taken lo the barn and work on
his injury was commenced. Hot appli
cations and lotions were applied to re
duce the inflammation as speedily as pos
sible, and it was hoped to bring him out.
but for the present be was laid up. A
committee of judges went to look at him
and make a report to the officials of the
course. The horse was evidently suffer
'lag a good deal. Much of the time he
bore his weight on bis other legs and
eased the injured one altogether. The
real nature of the injury could hardly be
told; whether the animal would be com
pelled to retire from the course or wheth
er he was only laid on the shelf for a
short time It is hoped the lat
ter is the case. Allerton has
been in as bad shape before
and Williams has brought him out of it,
and this thine it is hoped he will do
again. Subsequently the starter an
nounced that Mr. McHenry would drive
Lobasco over the course in a walk-over
for first money. The mile was finished
in 3:21 J.
The third race the 2:30 class for a
purse of $7,500, was won by Utility, the
best time being 2:22.
Between the first and second beats of
the 2:30 race, McHenry paraded Del
march in a trotting buggy. Delmarch
has a record of 2:11, being faster time
than made by any other stallion in the
world in a rece.

What might have proven a disastrous
conflagration, was prevented last night by
the efficiency of the paid fire department,
and also owing to the fact that there was
scarcely any wind blowing at the time.
About 8:40 o'clock neighbors discovered
a fire among the sheds and barns that line
the alley south of Fourth avenue, be
tween Twenty-first and Twenty-secon d
streets. An alarm was immediately
turned in, and the department responded
in amazingly quick time, and in a few
moments had several streams on the fire
which was found to be in a barn owned
by C. G. Wulff in the rear of bis cigar
store, the barns of David Brown and J.
K. Cox also being in a blaze. In the
absence of Chief Ramskill, Aid. B. F.
Knox, who by tbe way, was chief in vol
ulteer days, assisted Capt. Brahm in
handling the fire until tbe chief's arrival.
It was seen at once that it would be
impossible to save tbe Brown barn, as
that was where the fire was supposed to
have originated, and the firemen's efforts
were directed toward saving adjoining
property. In this they were very
successful, as no other property except
the rear portion of Mr. Brown's residence
was damaged, although it looked for a
time as though it would spread to other
buildings, which are numerous there, it
being quite thickly built up. It was
soon under control and tbe flames were
rapidly subdued. The damage will
amount in all to about $1,500. It will
probably cost $1,000 to make good Mr.
Brown's loss, which is covered by insur
ance, nothing being lost except tbe hay
it contained, as bis horse, buggy and
harness were all saved.
Tbe loss to the Cox barn will be per
haps $100 and that to the Wulff prop
erty $400, fully covered by insurance.
In running to the fire one of the hand
some grajs on the central hook and
ladder ran a nail in its foot, which was
removed shortly after, and no injury will
Tbe waterworks blew the alarm from
box -SI, which was misleading, it being
turned in from box 51.
Albert Olson, a la-year-old lad, made
himself obstreperous on a street car com
ing from Davenport last night. Presi
dent Louderback and Electrical Engineer
Fredericks happened to be on the car,
and the latter enjoined the young man to
be more orderly, whereupon the boy be
came insulting and saucy and Mr. Fred
ericks ordered him off the car. Young
Olson then manifested hoodlumism by
attempting to hit Fredericks with some
rocks, regardless of the others in the car.
The company officials seized him, how
ever, and turned him over to the police
He was brought before Magistrate
Wivill this morning, and fined $100 and
costs on a state warrant. He went to
j ail in default. The street car company
proposes to prosecute all similar cases of
hoodlumism on its cars, in justice to itR

as he pleises on a public conveyance.
Two operators attempted to work the

W. H. Gest Withdraws His Suit
Against the City.a
Finding That the Municipality Will
St casaprsBBlse, He Releases
His Claim Oatrlchr.
In tbe office of the clerk of the circuit
court last evening,, ex-Congressman W.
. Gest entered the following re
lease and dismissal of his $3,000 damage
suit against the city. Tbe document
is written in Mr. Gest's own hand-writing,
and evinces the fact that having dis
covered the error of his move especially
politically speaking and finding that no
satisfactory outcome to him has resulted
in the negotiations that have been intro
duced with the citv, he has done the
next best thing and dismissed his case,
something he should have thought of be
fore jumping on tbe municipality. Now,
that the matter is settled, the question
may be asked, what good has resulted?
Certainly none to the city or property,
and far less to Mr. Gest:
W. H. Gest vs. City of Rock Island.
Case. This suit was brought by me
simply to test tbe legal question whether
the defendant is liable to property own
ers in said city for damages by them sus
tained by reason of the depreciation in
value of their property, occasioned by
the raising or lowering of grades of
streets abutting thireon." It having been
conceded by tbe city attorney of said
defendant in his report upon said suit to
the city council, made on tbe 1st inst..
that such liability exists, and that said
declaration is goo4 in law, ana the
object of said suit having been therefore
substantially accomplished. I hereby re
lease and discharge tbe said defendant of
ana from all right of action, right and
claim of damage whatever to me ac
crued by reason of tbe matters and
things in said declaration averred, and
direct the dismissal of my said suit.
