FUN FOK FLAHERTY.
Experienced no Trouble in
Knocking Out Sheppard.
Tne African Uaseot Was a Pleale for
the nassarhaseili Boy,Wh Won
Without Receiving a Scratch.
The ring for the Sheppard-Flaberty
flgut which occurred yesterday after
noon was pitched on .the lower end of
Offermann's Island on a sandy knoll
where it was in full view of the crowd of
sports who were in attendance. Both
men were in good condition, which was
evidenced by the fact that nothing but
even money was ottered by either side.
According to agreement the mill was
to be at catch weight, to a finish, with
2 -ounce gloves, the winner to have 75
and tne loser 25 per cent of the gate re
ceiptB. John Oipson was the only man
who could be agreed upon as a referee,
so as soon a the preliminaries could be
arranged the ropes were stretched and
the men took their places in the ring.
Flaherty wa seconded by Jack Griffin
and .Tim 8v. eney of Davenport, while
Jim Maucker d Dob Davis were in
Shepp rd's coiner, John Masterson,
Dan Keleher and Stanley Kendrick being
timekeepers. The men shook hands at
just 3:30 o'clock, and a moment later
time was called and the men faced each
other for the first time.
The first round was characterized by a
few light exchanges only, both men be
ing very cautious. In the second, th rd
and fourth rounds Flaherty landed fres
quently on Sheppard's neck and face, but
with little effect, both men clinching at
almost every blow. From the fifth to the
ninth round Flaherty's wind seemed to
trouble him a little; he breathed heavily,
hut during the eighth and ninth rounds he
forced the fibting stronger, and landed
twice heavily on Shcppard's body. There
was clinching all the time during these
rounds, it being almost Impossible for
Referee Uipson to keep the men from
hitting while clinched, there being loud
cries of foul from both bides. In a clinch
in the eleventh round the colored lad had
his hu-d under Flaherty's left arm. and in
breaking away the latter claimed Shep
pard bit him, and wanted the fight
awarded to him, but the crowd cried,
"fight it out." and it went on. It was
apparent from the first that Sheppard
was afraid of his man. but when in tte
tulfth round Flaherty came up fresher
tunn evtr. the colored boy began his
clinching tactics to avoid punishment.
O ily three times during the fight did
Sheppatd show any aggressiveness, and
then Flaherty did some clever duck
ing From the twelfth to the
eigh eemh round Sheppard showed con
siderable pluck, coming up smiling each
time though avoiding punishment as
much as possible. Toward the end of
the round be began to wind and in the
nineteenth Flaherty followed him all
around the ring, landing almost wher
ever he pleased. In the twentieth it
plain that the colored lad was winded
and the crowd yelled to Flaherty to
knock him out. Sheppard kept away
as much as possible and managed to stay
the round out. but in the twenty-first Le
was crowded into his corner, and being
unable to come up at the end of 12
seconds, the fight was given to Flaherty.
Those who attended were all well sat
isfied with the fight and the referee, and
though it was a good fight neither of the
men were badly punished, Sheppard's
swollen face and eye being his only
marks, while Flaherty didn't receive a
The Outlook for tbe Vrmorrarr In the

"We are just fairly started," said Con
gressman Cable yesterday, in an
swer to an inquiry as to how work w s
progressing t tbe western headquarters
of tbe democratic national committee in
Chicago, "but we are daily receiving
man cullers, and much interest is mani
fested ia our work, and in the campaign
Aake.l as to the general outlook
throughout the couatry as far as the de
mocracy is concerned, Mr. Cable said:
"The outlook is exceedingly bright
throughout the country. In the west we
certainly have great cause to feel very
hopeful. We have good prospects in
Illinois, while Wisconsin is surely demo
cratic . I don't tbink there is a possibility
of doubt about Wisconsin being in the
democratic column in November, while
with proper wxrk I think we shall carry
other western states which have hereto
fore been regarded as safely republican."
When questioned in regard to the os
sibla postponement of the World's fair in
consequence of the dangers of tbe cholera
epidemic, Mr. Cable said he would not be
at all surprised if the fair was postponed.

A fair sized audience witnessed the
first presentation m Rock Island at Har
per's theatre last evening, of tbe musical
eccentricity, "McFee of Dublin," in
which John T. Kelly is the starring
comedian, supported by Miss Florrie
West and Miss Mattie Vickers. While a
clever entertainment was presented, the
comedy did not come up to the full ex
pectations, for the simple reason that it is
not ic it. The scenery, songs and dances
are new, but there is nothing particularly
catchy in tbe music, although Mr. Kelly
makes tbe most of whatever is allotted to
him, particularly that entitled "There
are Moments When We'd Like to be
Alone." Miss West is a graceful dance"r
and quite a clever singer. Mattie Vick
ers is always a favorite, and her speciali
ties are taking, but she has lost her voice
entirely. The comedy received its third
production here last night, and will
doubtless improve as it grows. Mattie
Vic kers, it is understood, leaves the com
pany this week, and will be succeeded by
M iss Andeline Randall.
Tomorrow evening we are to have the
Swedish dialect comedy, "Ole Olsen," a
genuine comedy novelty. Without a
question "Ole Olsen," tbe new Swedish
play, has been one of the greatest suc
cesses ever known to the American stage.
It comes here with a powerful, strong
cast and will undoubtedly prove one of
the strongest attractions of the season.
Inasmuch as the dialect of the stolid and
imputable Swede is both novel and
funny, and as the incidents of the play
are both hilarious and exciting, and as
the piece is presented by the best farce
comedy company now traveling, there is
little doubt but what our play goers will
crowd the theatre.

little strategy by getting possession of
the key to tbe restaurant from Robert
Young, a colored man who usually opens
up. When the owner of the restaurant
tried to get in his neighbor had him
locked out, acd the result was a stormy
scene there all morning

attorney, William McEoiry, going to the
rear of the building and gaining an en
trance, which caused a little encounter
inside between the wife of Mr. Gram
merstorf and those t ff ecticg an entrance,
