highly intcrestinir exhibition of
the art of " self defon-. the
contestants appcarimr to their
best ail vantage, and while Haves
howed himself h be iramev and ag
gressive and fully up in t he scientilic
points. Cox demonstrated his
superiority in his reach, and was
also too warv for his antagonist.
Haves became easily winded, and in

feat. Cox, on the other hand, was
as bright when the match was over
as when he entered the rinir-

the respon's'ijilities. Kike so many
other of these internal revenue cases,
the I'eoria collectorship contest has
developed so ne bitterness. Friends
of rival eaud dates could not attack
Dr. Wilson n his record, so they
expressed to the secretary great fear
that owing to nn attack of illness a

able to disehirge. the duties. They
pressed this with much earnestness.
Dr. Wilson, therefore, called to let
the secretary see for himself that he

lights, making n additional ones in
all. and increasing the number in the
city to an even 14 I. It was decided
on Aid. Maucker's motion to place
all lights over the center of
the intersections of streets,
thus giving a wider range
for the rays. In all the wards,
except the Second, the new lights
were placed by the respective alder
men last evening, and a few changes
in some instances made in the loca
tion of present lights. In the Second
ward. Aid. Schroeder asked that the

The laughable comedy. Incog."
the latest hit, is to be presented at
the Burtis. at Davenport, tonight.
It will draw a packed house.
The funny comedy, '-Kittle Nug
get." trade marked continuous laugh
ter, which appears at Harper's thea
tre tonight, has been on the boards
for the last nine years, and those
who saw it first are laughing yet. To
describe the comedy more thorough
ly we quote of an exchange '-If he.
who replaces a frow n by a smile is as
much of a benefactor as he who
makes a blade of grass grow in a spot
barren before, then a number of ac
tors last night got a score of credits
on their final' account. True, the
smiles were generally of the horse
laugh order, and nobody in the house
seemed particularly sad cyen at the
beginning, but H. S. Cawthorn's
O'Brady" was irresistible, and Dick
Chalfant", as "Billy Simpkins," was
an inimitable fool. Miss Florence
Wheeler, as "Kittle Nugget." even
failed to overdo the "sweetness act."
and her dancing was indeed artistic,
and Charles A. Mason, as Jakey"
the German, w ho rendered German
parodies on the latest popular songs,
carried the house by storm. Miss
Susie Forrester. "Mrs. Simpkins," as
well as Harry Talbot as the "Crimi
nal Lawyer." seemed satisfied with
the part "given them, without striv
ing for distinction in other line;-..
Those who went for a laugh should
feel better this morning, and these
who expected more have only them
selves to blame. As a facial and leg
contortionist, Cawthoru can take the
cake, even though he be less apt with
his tongue than Mrs. Simpkins."
At the Hospital.
tins Anderson and Desire Traet,
patients suffering with typhoid fever,
have been discharged from St. An
thony's hospital, cured.
Mrs. Michael Brahm, who is very
low w ith internal cancer, was taken
