Seora After Score Plied Vp Until 2X Is Secured Mollnc'a Warm Kick Tbe Ornate la Detail Jsckaoavllle Defeat Kock Island league Team -Other West era Aaaoclatloa Con tests. Quite a large crowd gathered at Twin City park yesterday afternoon to witness a large game of ball be tween a picked nine from Rock Isl and and one from Moline. From the start the boys played ball as if they knew how, and the way thev kept the bats warm was a caution. " Rock Island went to bat first and rolled up three dots, while Moline in its half only secured ono. In the second Paddock hit one down tollokenson and that gentleman threw the ball slow to Velle allowing the runner to reach first: Kersch sacrificed him to second , and he stole third while Fred Kinney fouled out. Kelly came to the bat and slammed one at Hokenson. He got itind threw it to lirst too late to catch the runner and allowing Pad dock to score. Kelly turned the wrong way after running over first and was called out. For Moline a piece of chalk woiild have made a black mark on a black board. In the third each secured a run and in the fourth Rock Island rolled up a n-oose 8g. but not so with Moline." Its representatives didn't do a thing but gel seven nice healthy scores, and those by slugging the tar out of the ball and scvereal" errors bv Rock Island. Nearly r,rkc Vp. Right here it would be no harm to mention that the game nearly fell through. Now anyone who has ever had any experience with Moline ball players, knows that they want every thing their own way, and these gen tlemen who appeared 3'esterday are no exception to the rule, and coached by a "curly locked parody" on a ball player, who sat in the grand stand, they kicked against one of Umpire Xoltsker's decisions, and would have played the baby act, had not some of the Rock Island boys allowed them their kick. It ail happened this way: Velio had secured a hit in left field, and Barnard had gotten a base on balls, when up to the plate strolled William Avoirdupois Butter worth, and the way he hit the ball was a sight to be hold. It swished its way toward short, and Vclie moped home. Barnard ran in front of Barnum when llie latter attempted to lield the ball, and he was called out for interfering with the fielder. Anyone who was there knows the rcl, as hinted at above. In the fifth and sixth, Kock Island added 17 scores to its list, while 8 was the best Moline could do. We won the game.

John Cady. of the Moline club, was hit in the car with a ball thrown by Brown, in the second inning.
