changes being made and switching
being done in the Rock Island vards"
so that nil trains are made up here,
and no charges are matte after going
over the Rot k Island bridge.
Hayenport Hound House Closed up.
Yesterday the C. R. I. & P. round
house at Davenport was practically
abolished, and all switch engines,
which are rot in use there, will be
kept on tli -i side of the river here
after. There are a number of loco,
tives that are kept busy in the yards
there at all times day and night, and
those will lie coaled here, but
those which are only used at times
w ill be housed in the new round
honr.e in Rock Island.
Having the advantage of one of the
largest round houses in the country,
one with ample accommodations for
all the loeomatives it requires here,
either for road or yard service, it was
natural it should" seek to reduce ex
penses by transferring all its loco
motives to this city.
The change leaves tbe locomotives
of the C. M. & St I, and H., C. R. &
N. the only ones kept in Davenport,
and there sire not very many of them.
No. 3 on the C. U. I. & P. was an
hour and a quarter late this morning,
the engine having broken down, ami
being delayed by hot boxes.
Asst. Sitpt. t'onlin, of the Rock
Island, is n the city today to inves

in the yar Is last week.
The ('., M. & St. P. has sent out a
notice thai the management expects
to reduce the wages of engineers,
firemen, trainmen anil switchmen 10
per cent. :.nd it asks that represen
tatives of these orders be sent to
Chicago to confer with the officials.
The threa'cned cut is not kindly re
ceived by the men ami trnuldc is an
ticipated if it lie carried into effect.
It is claimed and there appears to
be good grounds for the claim that
there is no necessity for the cut, as
the road is making money. A re
monstrance will lie made against any
reduction in wages.
ViIliam Bailey, who was arrested
last week while suffering with the
delirium tremens, was yesterday ad

E. T. Divis and ("ieorge White, the

for gambling in a shed on the levee.

pae.tylast evening, standmg room
being a a premium. Sports and
others from the tri-cities and from at
least 50 miles around congregated to
see one of the most one-sided fights ,
ever put tip in the prize ring. James
Sweeney and H. Muhs were the par
tiepants, and had half a fight been
shown on Sweeney's part, no doubt
the people would have gone away
satisfied, but he seemed scareil from
the start to finish. ,
As a curtain raiser, Charles Hell
(colored) and Billy Smith, of Iowa
City, sparred four good rounds, with
Thomas 'Cox as referee and 'Zeke"
Murdock time-keeper. Then the I
fight of the evening was announced. ;
but it was a long time coming. The 1
choice of referee was left to the au
dience, and "Farmer Burns." of this
city was almost unanimously chosen. !
Then the articles of agreement were
read by J. OT)ay, after which time
keepers were chosen as follows: For
Sweeney, John Gipson; for Muhs,
Bill Kirk; oflieial time-keeper, John
Knter the liliidiators.
At about 11:20 the men entered
the ring, Muhs coming first with J.
Mara and Billy Smith as seconds and
Charles Bell as bottle-holder. Swee
ney entered about two minutes after
with Jimmy Griflin, J. Kivelan, J.
Feeney and William Smith as sec
onds and bottle-holders. The light
by rounds is appended:
Round 1 11: iti time was called
and the men stepped forward to the
middle of the ring. Muhs leads for
the stomach, and immediately after
gives Sweeney a jab in the neck and
nearly knocked him down. Had he,
as he lirst started, followed his man,
he would have put him out then.
About this time Sweeney seemed to
contract a severe attack of stage
fright and came up with a sickly and
idiotic smile. Both men are very
cautious as the gong sounds.
Round 2 Muhs Iandsiwo without
return on Sweeney's neck, Sweeney
seemingly afraid to hit, acting al
ways on the defensive and looking
Round 3 Muhs loads on the stom
ach with the left and on the neck
with the right. Sweeney lands a
Jul.' on Muh's nose. Both exchange
light blows, Muhs having a shade the
best of it, and clinch.
Round 4 Muhs again leads with
the left on the neck and receives a
worthless jab in the face. They
clinch. Muhs again lands on Swee
ney's neck, and they clinch again.
Sweeney's nerve picks up some, and
he follows up his man, and succeeds
in landing the right on the ribs and
left on the nose, but Muhs comes
back with two on each side of the
bead. Then Muhs rushes, and Swee
ney acts entirely on the defensive.
Round 5 Muhs again leads on the
stomach, and receives in return more
worthless jabs. Then Muhs lands
four without return, and Sweeney
looks very groggy, but manages to get
in a punch which draws claret from
Muhs' nose. Muhs continues the
rushing, and when t ime is called both
men are bleeding.
Round (i Sweeney comes up vith
the right eve almost closed and
mouth fearfully swollen, and Muhs
leads for the head, and thev el inch.
Both men fall, with Sweeney under
neath, his head striking the floor like
a thousand of brick. Muhs now
punches Sweeney fearfully, but he is

The Davenport & Rock Island Rail-
w ay company bas never failed to keep
its promises with the people of the
three cities. Every pledge made to
the councils of Rock Island, Moline
anil Davenport in securing franchises
or extensions hns been fulfilled to the
letter, and more. The service it has
given has excited the wonder and ad-

many have expressed their surprise
that the company should give a pop-
ulation reaching in the
people a ser-
'' three cities 7;,O.)0
i vice that would be more ant to be
looked for in a city of main' times
our population. One business man
commenting on the subject the other
, day said: "I attribute every im
provement Rock Island has made in
the past live years to our street rail
J way system." Certain it is that not
'one of these cities would have been
'able to do the paving that has been
done but for the street rail way compa
ny. The three cities have followed the
company's tracks with pavement for
miles and it has not tittered a mur
mur. On Fort Armstrong avenue on
the island the most expensive granite
pavement was put down at its ex
pense. It cheerfully hns stood its
proportion of all the improvements
that have been made on the bridges,
and has always been ready to do its
share. How long would the ferrv
company that now seeks to control
travel between these two cities have
stood this expense without a kick?
I'll tell you the people of the three
cities uon i realize what this compa
ny has done for them. A man who
has any knowledge of street railway
matters, as I have had, can tell vo'u
what it means. And now all that is
asked is to be permitted to still fur
ther improve the service bv abolish
ing the last relic horse-carism and
the introduction of electricity in con!
formity with the rest of the system.
Who can seriously object unless he
be actuated by purely selfish mo

constitute the sole drawback to a
