DISCUSSING BASE BALI.
llere'H ll:i!!iueH to l.il itinl IIIh.
Among the marriage licenses is
sued yesterday was one to Edward
Collins and Nellie I'ureell. It is sii
posed that the party who will give
the name to the new domestic lirm
is the hustling city editor of the
Times, although that worthy hasn't
taken any of his brother scribes into
his confidence, probably wishing to
scoop his contemporaries by having
the item appear first in his own
paper. This shows what desperate
means an enterprising reporter will
employ to get news in' dull times.
He needn't feel so big about it, how
ever, or be so mysterious, as several
of us have been married for some
time, and our self importance is rap
idly falling to par. Mr. Collins is to
be congratulated, but not knowing
when the wedding is to take place,
the Tribune reserves its" congratula
tions to his partner until he squares
himself for being so confoundedly
sly. Davenport Tribune.
Tito Meeting Last Kventiijj Thf Local
l'Iol Tlie firounds.
Last night's meeting of the Kock
Island Base Ball association was at
tended by all the directors ami also
by Harry Sage and Harry O'Day. of
the Twin-City team. The proposi
tion to place a .semi-professional club
in the field as proposed in last night's
Aim sirs was discussed and' arrange
ments made whereby the team will
have the use of the association's field
properties, the nine to be composed
as given in the Aitisrs. It was deter
mined that the club go to Peoria for
games next Saturday and Sunday.
Hert Cunningham is to be manager,
ami Harry O'Day field captain.
Twin City Carle.
This morning Street Supt. Blais
dell sent up a couple of men to Twin
City park and removed the cast fence
in conformity with the council's or
ders at its last meeting. The ball
association does not think it has
been treated rightly by the council
on this matter and that the action
has very much the appearance of
prejudice. When the association
was given the right to the 30 feet on
Forty-third street, it in return gave
the city the use of Forty-second
street, which is not platted ami be
longs to the association under its
lease. The fence will probably be
rebuilt on the property line, and the
arrangement of the diamond altered
so that the change will not interfere
with the use of-the grounds as heretofore.
The I.illy I'rison War .Museum.
Of the many attractions outside of
the World's fair in Chicago, there
are but few in which there is so much
interest centered as there is in the
Libby Prison War Museum. In issy
t his celebrated prison was removed
from Kichmond to Chicago and con
verted into a war museum. The
project was undertaken by a syndi
cate of the best known business men
of the city whose enterprise was con
ceived in a commercial spirit, but
has attained a national reputation.
A project such as this, was never
before heard of. To move a brick
and stone building the size of Libby
more than a thousand miles, across
rivers and mountains, was an enter
prise that many of the best known
contractors in the west refused to
undertake at any price. But the
move was made with success. Then
the famous old structure was tilled
with war material that represents
the work of a lifetime and the ex
penditure of $.!' 0.000. The great
collection is conceded to be second
to none in the country and includes
much of the most valuable material
that the greatest civil war the world
has ever known has left to posterity.
The collection includes thousands
and t housands of relics of every de
scription, many of which form im
portant links in the history of the
nation. The old building itself is
fraught with interesting memories
and the story of the celebrated tun
nel escape of February J. lstl. never
fails to interest the visitors, line
hundred ami nine I'nion officers
madctheir escape through that tunnel
which formed one of the most thrill
ing events in the historv of the war.

here for a year or more. So far as
known not a single part of the right
of wav between this city and Canton

said that the w vrk is being pushed on
the other side of the latter city. In
this city money to the amount id

A Kock Island woman who was
trading in Davenport Saturday for
got a parcel or two. She was on a
bridge car approaching the big bridge
when she missed the parcel. She got
off the car with her feet in the direc
tion she was going. Slut took a few
somersaults and landed on the St.
Paul railroad track. The engineer of
the train that was coming in saw the
performance, and put the air on his
train so ijuick that it brought his
passengers up standing, and saved
the woman's life. She then got on
another car and rode back to Brady.
She got olT this car a little more
