Park Players Deserting.
The benefit game or ball yesterday at
Twin City park 4 between Rock Island
and Miline was won by tbe former, by a
score of 7 to 6. Tbe teams were made
by dividing the home team and filling in
with amateurs in the respective out
fields. The following are the names and
positions of the players:

A fair tendaucu was present, ai:d the
game w enjoyed by everyone. Both
teams . ..ed hard, and the amateurs
caught., rover, and were in tbe game
from 1 ; ' nibg to end. It was quite
exciting times, and was only won by
the Roc: ! ands by a scratch. The fol
lowing is the summary:

The Molines were distinguished by
wearing red, and the same colors were
worn by a large number of ladies who

The dispatch from Rockford to to
day's Cbicaeo Herald that Moline had
abandoned the Twin-City team, is un
founded. The Twin-Cities are both
solid for maintaining a club, and to
tick it out to the last.
The players of the Twin-City team
were paid off today, and some of tbe
players are talking of deserting now that
they have got what's coming
to them. Bartson threatens to go to
Marinette, while McOuirk has an offer
from Menominee. When President
Hodges was talking to these men today
about holding them to their contracts,
be was amazed to find that Manager Sage
had signed neither although both
had been playing under that understand
ing. How many more of the players
have this advantage over the local asso
ciation is not known. The players of
the Twin-.City team have been treated
here altogether too well to act as some
of them are doing today. They have
been treated too well by Manager Sage,
as has been often said, and the club is
now ge ting the benefit of it.
The fact that the Moline ladies made
such a success of yesterday's game by
observing tbe customs of college con
tests, tbe Rock Island ladies interested in
the game are anxious to have a repeti
tion of yesterday's game and to outdo
their Moline rivals, and looking to this
end are talking of ranking application
for the first open date after the close of
The Twins leave in the morning for
Rockford, where they play all next week.

refused to pay for it. A woxdy war ens
sued, with tbe result that one of the
strangers whipped out a revolver and
threatened to shoot the Italian fruit ven

the straDgers escaped. The police are
now trying to locate the frolicsome pair.
A Btnpendoua Mpectaele Presented
With Hlntorieal Accuracy.
To say that children are delighted and
instructed, ladies charmed and amused,
and all others really amazed and aston
ished, does not convey a tithe of the feel
ings created by a visit to Barnum & Bai
ley's Greatest Show on Earth. Every
beholder of its wondrous features are
thrilled and filled with astonishment at
their orillianr magnificence. Its im
mensity is beyond mention, and its mag
nitude so great it resembles nothing so
much as itself a perfect world of won
ders, ancient scenes, rare and costly ex
hibits, and tremendous historical dis
plays. Its great popularity and success
is owing)as much almost to the fact that it
is honorably conducted, honestly present
ed, truthful, moral and educational, as to
the magnificence and the historical worth
of the performances. The vast number of
its wonderful features and rare attrac
tions also are a large factor in rendering
it so successful, but taken in its entirety
it stands unequaled in 4 he world's his
tory, the one shining example of the
truth of the maxim, "survival of the
fittest." To all its great circus in three
rings, elevated stage performances, novel
and daring hipprodome races, galleiy of
mystifying illusions, double menageries,
herds of elt phants, camels, 400 fine bred
horses and ponies, curious quadrupeds,
and o;ber wonders, tbe show has been
enriched by the addition of the most mag
nificent spectacle the eyes of mortal ever
looked upon. Tne stupendous historic il
piece, called Columbus and the Discov
ery of America, is an achievement in
spectacular productions almost beyond
comprehension. It will be seen at
Columbian park tomorrow.
