WOULD WRESTLE HERE.
Su-rrpini; Cliilllcnife From F.v:n Lewis to
Hums u ml Moth.
It is highly probable that the
wrestling match at Harper's theatre
next Friday night.- which, bythe
way. promises to be an event in tin
sporting line, and in which Farmer"
Martin Burns and Charles Moth will
engage, will lie only the forerunner
to other contests of a similar nature,
only more exciting. A few days ago
Burns received a letter from Wrest
ler Tom Conner, who has just re
turned to this country from abroad,
and i- at Newark. N. J., now. In his
letter to the farmer " Conner savs
he is coming out this wav after
awhile with the avowed purpose of
bringing on a match with some one.
and. serving that end he will chal
lenge the winner of the Burns-Moth
contest. Burns states that if he
triumphs, he will accept, and he
supposes Moth would do the same
under the same circumstances.

Editor of the Ai;;t s: Wili you please
issue the follow ing challenge: I w ill
wrestle Farmer"' Burns, of your
city, catch-as-eatch-ean, for any
amount of money he wants. He
need not shove me aidc and claim
that he has matches with other peo
ple. He speaks of wrestling with
Tom Conner, his bosom friend, and
claims to have other matches. Now
I know there is m money in hippo
droming all over the country, and he
claims to be a champion. Cham
pions are alwavs ready to compete
with anvbodv. and 1 would like to
match him. There is no question.
he can win plenty i f money by de
feating me. He need not look for
anybody else if he wants any of my
game. I should like to hear from
him if he means business.
rt-r Mot li. Too.
I see where Charles Moth and he
are going to wrestle. I would also
like to meet Mr. Moth, and as I know
he is no eatch-as-eatch-can man, I
w ill meet him Crcaceo Human for anv
reasonable amount that we can agree
upon in your city or any other place
that suits Mr. Moth. Now neither of
those wrestlers peed look for anvone
else, for 1 will accommodate them.
All I ask them to do is to notify rue
where to meet them to deposite
money and arrange matters. My ad
dress is Kmgew ay. is.
Evan Lkw is.
Iluriis Ik Willing.
Burns was seen in reference to the
above this morning, and stated that
if Lew is really wanted a match, all
he had to do was to put up a forfeit.
Let Lewis send on his forfeit
money. "t-aid Burns, "and I'll cover
it at once for a match at Harper's
tlwatre for $2ii0 a side, at any time
he may select."
Herman Smith, trainer for Wrest
ler Charles Moth, and John Voss,
"Farmer" Burns' pupil, w ere matched
yesterday for a $20 purse and gate
receipts, to wrestle best three in five
falls, eatch-as-catch-can at the Man

Moline was a little weak, although
her team played hard, but Davenport
played a more scientific game and
seemed more powerful, (juinu, of
Davenport, being the favorite. At one
time, he was running around with a
man under each arm. The score:

In the first half Davenport made a
safety, two touchdowns, and a kick
to goal. In the second half the Iowa
boys made two touch downs and a
kick to goal, making the 22, but' Mo
line failed to score any. Davenport
enthusiasts went crazy over the

A foot ball game is in progress this
afternoon between Augustaua college
of Koek Island, and St. Ambrose "of
Davenport, on the Augustana park
at the corner of Thirty-eighth street

A Horse Full With a I toy A Scrioun Kun-
away l'oIi-r Fxplosion.
Kalph Iglehart, a lad about 12
years of age, was riding a horse on
Market square this afternoon about
1:30, when the horse stumbled and
fell, throwing the little fellow with
much force upon the hard pavement.
He was taken into Bengston's drii"
store, and an examination showed
that he had sustained a severe bruise
on the left side of the head and sev
eral smaller ones about the left leg.
The injuries, although painful in the
extreme, are by no means serious.
This morning a team attached to
one of Farrell's feitilier wagons,
and driven by Charles Farrell. be
came frightened and ranaway in the
vicinity of the 11., I. & I'. depot, dash
ing into the platform of the freight
depot. Mr. Farrell and his brother
Kay were thrown from the wagon,
which passed over Mr. Farrell's neck,
but as he got up at once and ran af
ter the team, it not probable any se
rious damage was done, strange as it
may seem. The team was caught up
in the railroad yards. Kay Farrell
was injured somewhat, but was able
to mount the wagon with his brother
and ride home.
Iturned l.y a Powder Filoion.
Yesterday afternoon Henry Hen
dron and Arthur Hill went out squir
rel hunting. Their method wa to
insert burning waste attached to a
wire into the hollow of a tree, and
scare the little animal out. In some
way a powiler llask in Hill's pocket
became ignited and the powder blazed
up, burning his face and hands ter
ribly, it being impossible for him to
open one of his eyes. He received
medical attention as soon as he
reached the city, and it will be som
time before he is able to be about.
