Shatz Bros, dry goods store in Union City was entered by thieves early Wednesday morning of this week. The intruders gained en trance by throwing a brick thru one of the back wlndowB and taking out a pane of glass. , The burglars, sup posed to be negroes and whites, all young, managed to take out of the store something like a value of , two hundred dollars or more in goods, consisting of men's pants, shoes, overalls, three men's suits, several dozen shirts, men's caps, ladies' fine crepe de chine waists and one un dershirt. The last trace the management of the store had of the robbers was the boarding of an I. C. freight train at Rives at 6:30 o'clock a.m., going towards Memphis. There were five in the bunch and they looked to be all young boys, ranging in age from 17 to 22. Two of the suspects were captured Wednesday evening dressed in Shatz Bros, clothing and taken to the "cooler." They were Walter Duncan and Paul Armstrong hailing from Jackson. STREET IMPROVEMENT BIDDERS IN UNION CITY The Various Types Called for in Specifications. Bidders from St. Louis, Birming ham, Nashville and Memphis, also local bidders from Union City, were present at a called meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen last Tuesday night to receive bids on Street Improvement specifications, covered by ordinances Nos. 6, 7 -and 8, for portions of First, Main and Church streets in Union City. The types mentioned are asphaltic con crete, sheet asphalt, bitulithic, and rock asphalt, and bases mentioned are concrete, gravel, Macadam and Telford, with bids on curbs, gutters, excavations, maintenance, etc. The bidders are as follows: S. K. Jones & Co., W. T. Murphy, B. E. Schvenell, Memphis; W.T. Lef twitch, Nashville; Strovell-Helmick Co., Mo-rena-Durkam, Construction Co., St. Louis; Southern Road Co., Birming ham; McAdoo-Waddell-Kelly Co., Union City. The Commercial is not able to quote the bids, for the reason that they had not been tabulated and the totals worked out. The sheet as phalt interests were more particular ly represented, claiming that all oth er types had been discarded by cities . on prominent streets, such streets as Fifth avenue, New York; Broad street, Philadelphia; Pennsylvania avenue, Washington; Grand avenue, St. Louis; Michigan avenue, Chica go. All these streets have some form of asphalt, but all the new work practically is done with sheet as phalt. New York is using a form of base which can be laid more rapidly than concrete and used in a few hours after laying. Very little talk was made on as phaltic concrete. The interests of concrete paving were in evidence and a very favorable bid was made for concrete streets. The sheet asphalt bidders seemed to hold to a high priced schedule. FANS ENJOY ANOTHER SUNDAY SCHOOL GAME Cumberlands and Methodists Tie Up in a Long-Distance Game. The game Tuesday between the Cumbei lands and the Methodists lacked a little of the fine ball spirit that characterized the first two games. It was however, a consider ble contest, the Cumberlands taking the lead in the first inning with three runs. In" the fifth inning the Meth odists had a lead of one run. The Methodists scored in ihe seventh, eighth and ninth, the Cumberlands in the sixth and in the ninth made a column of runs and one over, the game ending with a score of 17 to 10. The teams were both a little below good playing condition. Some of the Cumberlands and the Methodists were out of town and the game was hardly over before dark. We are indebted to the official scorer, Jas. Whipple, for a report of the game by innings. Features were a home run hit by Woosley in the fifth inning and Massey squaring circle in the eighth. Milliken, Mitchell and Woosley caught some good fly balls. Pitchers were changed during the game, Mitchell taking Scott's place and Keiser the place of Horner. The box score is as follows: Cumberlands. AB H R E PO A O. Walker, rf . . 6 2 2 0 0 1 C.T.
