Hamilton Defeated In Game Here for
Championship of Western Illinois,
t*V Before Large
IP" $100.
Hamilton and Warsaw citizens came
to Keokuk practically enmasse yester
day to watch their respective baseball
teams battle for the championship of
western^ Illinois, and" incideptly fight
for a.J£ji»e of $100. The spectators
played as big a part in the game asj
did the players. It was a fight for
supremacy between the two towns
•cross the river as much as a contest
between the boys on the field. The
game ended 3 to 2 in favor of the
^-Warsaw team.
There have been very few times
during the baseball season just past
that the park here has accommodated
as 'large a crowd as it did yesterday
Chances of seeing a real old-fashioned
baseball game drew out many of. the
fans of this city. From Warsaw and
Hamilton the bugs came in droves,
look to see they were there. You
could hear them five blocks away,
They wore real fans of the old school I
—the kind you seldom see at a league
baseball, game.
Taking everything into considera-j
'tion the game was well played and'
but few mechanical errors were made.
It was anybody's money until th9,
last man was down in the Hamilton
side of the ninth. Probably the mostj
obvious weakness of both teams was
to their hitting. Neither pitcher had
much to boast of in the way
trol, but the batters failed to "wait
•em out" and in consequence but three Boston ....
walks were Issued furing the day. New York
A single by Dickey, the Keokuk Chicago
boy playing third for Warsaw, at an St. Louis ..
opportune moment in the seventh in- Philadelphia
ning, drove in tbe run that sewed "P Pittsburgh
the game for Warsaw. A sacrifice fly Brooklyn ..
tby the same lad in the third also gave Cincinnati
Warsaw their first run. "Dick" played
a remarkably good game around the
difficult corner, accepting eight
chances, some of them extremely hard
ones that came at critical times.
But Dickey was not the only man
that played a good game. Turner,'
Hamilton short, Hiser, Stephens and,
Fairfax also looked good in their re-1
spective. positions.. "Nap" Ruckles, I
.Warsaw alaSwter, carried away the
batting honors of the day with a walk
and a single, scoring two runs. "Nap"
whiffed? eight batters while his oppo
-nent, Cooey, mowed down tiiree.
Hamilton was held safely until the
and seventh, but were unsuccessful
on each, occasion.
Warsaw evened up the count in the
sixth' with one run. Simmons beat

It is not likely the Braves will slow

Steamer Keokuk Lifted Out of the
Water When Upper Look^,i
Gate Raises Too
Woodwork on Top of Gate Crushed,
But Only Might Damage p"
Waa Don* to the
While passing north through the
lock here yesterday afternoon the
steamer Keokuk, Captain McKenzie,
carying a large crowd of excurslon
lata from down river cities, waa
caught in the center by the upper
lock gato-and lifted two feet out of
the water. The boat had passed half
way acroaa the Kte before an acci
dent to the controlling mechanism
caused the operator to loose control
of It and it roa*. lifting the boat from
the wmter^:
The'pa—engfors became paafcr atrlek*
en and many of them started to Jump
from the boat to the walla of the lock.
It waa several minutes before the ac
cident to the machinery could be re
paired and the lock gate lowered t°
let the boat pass Into the forebay.
Gate Slightly Damaged.
No one was injured In the occur
rence and1 only.alight damage waa
done to the boat. The woodwork on
the top part of the gate was crushed,
but otherwise the gate was uninjured,
so far as la known at the present
time. The damage can be repaired In
a. short time. Tbe second upper gate
1* being need until the damaged one
can be put in working order again.
According t° the government engi
neers the. accident waa caused by a.
controlling lever, slipping from Its
position. As nearly everyone knows
the gate la operated by compressed
air. In lowering the gate tbe air 1*
discharged and the gate drops. To
raise It the air chambers are filled
with compressed air, the bouyancy of
which Is sufficient to raise It.
Lever Slipped from Place.
In lowering the gate. .In order to
preyent" it from striking with too
much force at tbe bottom, air la
forced into the chamber Just before
the gate -reacbea the bottom. Imme
diately after this had been done yes
terday, tbe lever which controls the
valvep., slipped from. Its position. The
operator was powerless to prevent the
gate from'raising until he had left, his
poaitlon, gone to the machinery room
and placed the lever in position
again. While this waa being done the
gate rose, lifting the boat above It
from the. water a distance of aiboaft
two feet.
There were about three hundred
passengers on the boat when the. ao.
cident JJpcurred. They cante. from

to return on the boat fearing that ltj
might have been so damaged aa to
make it unsafe. An examination of
the boat, however, proved that their
fears were unfounded. Not a timber

Captain McKenzie, of the steamer

had occurred to one of the larger
river steamers the boat would have
