A Change In the Kelatlonnnlp of One of
the Heirs A l'ortlon of the KHtatel rarm
ferred to William McEnlry and .1. T.
Kenworthy The lurpoe and Pros
pects. A sensation was caused late yesterday
afternoon in the court bouse at the close
of complainant' testimony in the caie of
EhBkbeth Ferkel vs. Jtihn Peetz, admin
istrator of the estate of Bailey Daven-
P' rt, deceased, when counsel for Mrs
Frrkel moved the court for permit sion
to smend the biil of complaint by s'rin
ing out the word na'ural and inserting
the word half before the word sister so
that the bill would read half-sister.
Counsel for Ansstasia Murphy, who has
up to the present been the
real defendant in this case, for
the reason - she bought the lands in
Btiffolo Prairie at probate sale which Mr?.
Ferkel claims title to by Rift from Bt.iley
Davenport, then moved for the continu
ance for the reason that the smendrient
chanced the character of the suit and was
a surprise to them. Mrs. Ferkel's coun
sel did not oppose the motion, evidently
fueling quite certain from recent discov
eries made hy tlem thit they would, by
the next terra of court be in a position to
prove, that their client is not ocly a
tialf-sistir to Bailty Ds. vnport, but an
heir at law cf bis. Mr'. Ferkel clain s in
tliis suit tbat Bailey D-ivenport, it: his
life-tiuje, pave to her the land in Bu lalo
Pruirte and she is now endeavoring to
force the administrator of Bailev Daven
port to execute to her a deed which the
says Bailey Davenport neglected to do in
Ad Important Transfer.
Last evening a deed was placed on file
in the court house from Elizibeth Ferkel
reciting tnat she is heir of Bailey Daven
port to John T. Kenworthy and William
McEnirv. her solicitors, conveying to
them one half of all the entire interest
to all the lands Biiley Divenport died
seized of. Messrs Kenworthy and Mc
Eniry claim tbat this deed conveys title
of all property sold of Bailey D&venpart
at administrator's sale for the reatons
Mrs. Ferkel was not made a party de
fendant to the suit in th probate co irt.
It is quite evident from the array of
counsel interested in the Davenport es
tate, the uncertainly sb to who are the
heirs of Bailey Davenport, deceased, and
the lands owned by Bailey Davenport
will be in litigation and the title uncer
tain, for many ypars to come.

MOLINE HOLDS IT ILLEGAL.
The Proposition of the Trl-City Columbian
Adverthtlns; Committee Looking to a
Topographical Map so Regarded by
the Council of That City.
At Mnnd .y uighi's meeting of the Mo
line city council City Clerk Carlson read
a communication relative to the topo
graphical map of the three cities to be
displayed at the World's fair, as recom
mended at the meeting held in Daven
port. Aid. Perrin said the estimated cost
of the same Was $2,600, including two
copies, one for Rock Island and one ror
Moline, the original, after the close of the
fair, to be given to Davenport. In ap
portioning the cost it was proposed that
Davenport pay one-half, $1,850, and
Rock Island and Moline each one-fourth,
or 1 625.
Aid. Vinton requested the opin
ion of tha city attorney as to whether or
not the city could legally appropriate
money for such purpose.
Attorney Oakleaf said he thought they
could not, and he r:ad the second clause
of the statute relative to the powers of
the city council: "to appropriate money
for corporate purposes only, and provide
for the payment of debts and expenses of
the corporation." In bis opinion pay
ment for a map to be di-played at the
World's Fair was not a corporate purpose
and hence under the clause quoted such
appropriation would be illegal He bo
said the city could not appropriate money
in aid of a new enterprise without a vote
of the people, and he deemed tb's to be
a question of that nature.
Aid. Chad wick said it seemed to him
that the capitalists of the three cities are
the ones who will be most benefitted by
visits of strangers, and that they are the
ones who should pay for the map.
A motion of Aid. Chadwick that it is
the sense of the council that it could not
legally make the appropriation was adopt
Important to the Improvement Associa

provement association: I have invited
O. M. Babcock, the author of "Cosmon
ics of the United States," to meet with
and speak to the members of the associa
tion tomorrow (Tbursdav) evening. He
has kindly agreed to do so, and I have no
doubt he will give a very interesting talk,
illustrated by elaborate ch&rts on the mat
ter of his book. To those not acquainted
ith the subi ict, I wish to state tbat it is
of more than usual interest to the peopl'3
of the tri-cities. I hope every member of
the association will be present, and all
other persons who would like to hear Mr.
Babcock. I know you will be amply re
paid for your attendance.

The Athletic Kntertalnment at the Man

The athletic entertainment at the Man
hattan last evening was well attended
and proved one of the best exhibitions of
it kind that has been givan. The pro

who is making his borne in Davenport,
and Brown, of this city. Carter winning

Jim Collins. After wrestling three min
utes Morey probably won a fall, which
the referee failed to f-ee, but no more
falls were gained by either man. The
next was a friendly 3-round glove con
test for points between Kivilin and
Feeney, f Davenport, after which Con
Doyle gave an exhibition f - bag punch
ing. The latter seems to be getting
more clever each day and his sni
ma'ed round vith the bag pleased
the spectators. The cloting event of the
eveuing was a 10-miuute exhibition of
wnstling, in which the old war horse,
