That Uock Island won the tenth
straight frame Saturday was due
largely to l'addj Lynch, who not only
jave a magnilicent exhibition of field
work, but hit the ball for three
bases. It was a terrific slngf-iri
watch all the way throu;:hrSthe
sphere getting a most' abom
inable trcunclng from first
to last. It was a reg
ular sec-saw contest. In the fourth
Lynch made the circus play of the
game. Lookabaugh hit a Ticious
screamer about two feet over Paddv's
head. He stuck up his left mitt and
jumped and pulled it down nicelv.
Aain in the second half of the ninth,
after Hock Island had its last chance
at the bat, Oaialia began annihilating
the ball aprain, and it looked ex
tremely dubious as to the outcome.
There were two men on bases and
big hitters to come. Lookabaugh's
aspirations were again cut short by
l'addy, who picked up a lawn trim
mer," ami assisted Cantillun and
Krcig in a lightning double play that
ended the music riht there. Here
is the story in detail:

Who could have expected us to
win yesterday? The cause of the de
feat in the first place belongs to Can
tillon, and his line should not exceed
.M.nor less than $19.99. Just before
liock I -land left on its last trip. Joe
Cantillun, l'A Cline and Uanny Swee
ney went fishing. Well they " stayed
out all day, anil about C:30 Dannv
hopped oil a Milan street car and had
two coats under his arm. They were
l'.d's and Joe's. Joe am! the fat um
pire came home with smiles on their
taces, but around each heart was a
dark circle on which could be traced
the word 'revenge.' The opportu
nity came and for three whole weeks
Danny has been poing around with
his working clothes on. his store
clothes having been hidden by Can
tillon. Saturday evening Joe gave
them back to him, and the' conse
quence was Hock Island lost. Then,
ajxain. on .Saturday evening, some of
the boys threw in a quarter or so,
and little Hoscoc Morton, the club's
colored mascot, was fitted out in a
suit of black trousers, white stock
ings, black cap anil white shirt, 011
the bosom of which was iuscribed,
Twin Cities.' Last, but cot least,
came Secretary Mcllugh's appear
ance yesterday on the grounds with
white duck trousers. With all this
combination who could expect Hock
Island to win?
Omaha started in the first inning
to win, and before the third out had
been made it had rollod up seven
great large scores, while we in our
half secured but one. In the second
Hill got a hit and stole sicond, and
Sage bilTed one at Hutchinson, but
lie made an error, letting Hill to
third. Doe" stole sceoud and Lynch
flew out to Ulrick, and SonieV hit
one down to Hutchinson and was
thrown out at first. Hill started
home on the play and MeVey pretty
nearly threw over the bleachers, anil
Sage as well as Hill scored. That
settled it, for Sweeney fouled out to
rear. For Ouialaugh" Secry got a
base on balls, McVcy got a hit, plac
ing Secry on the third peg, and stole
second. Hutchinson hit to Cantillon.

Vey was caught napping off third.
in me mini iiocK island ciphered,
ditto cabbagehead we mean Otna

ciphered, though it should have
done different. Omaha swelled its
lead one in the fourth on Hutchin
son's home run. In the fifth it
looked as if we would just settle the
loose dust with Omaha gore. Can
tillon got a base on balls, Zeis hit
to Hourke. but that individual threw
at McVey as if he were an eight
footer, letting Cantillon to third and
Zeis second; Katz got a base and
Kreig a base hit, and Cantillon came
home. Hill hit to third and Putty
was out at home; Sage hit to Looka
baugh and Katz was out at home.
Then Lynch flew out to L'lrich.
In Omaha's half it scored a cipher.
In the sixth Hock Island secured but
one, and Omaha the same. In the
seventh Hill started the ball rolling
with a 2-base hit. Sage was gifted
a base and Lynch fouled out to Fear.
Silent Sonief placed out a single and
Hill came home. Danr.y Sweeney
dinged out a base and Sage aud
Silent came home. Cantillon was
hit in the slats and given a base.
Zeis walked up to the plate and
Elammcd out a S-base hit, and Swee
ney and Cantillon came home. Fear
had a passed ball and Zeis came
home. Katz Ftruck out and Krcig
made a hit. Hill came to the bat
, 1 1 M ia
and nailed one away oat in Ulrick's
garden, but he got it, and ended the
sport after Rock Island had made
six. In it half Omaha scored but
one on Pedros' 2-base hit and Fear a
S-base hit. It was in the eighth
Itock Island met its Waterloo. Sace
and Lynch scored, making the score
13 to 11 in the home club's favor.
but the ossified men from "Oma-
igle" waded right in in their half
and beat the ball as if thev were
beating carpets, and before they quit
they had six big dots in their col
umn. McVey'i Clrcns Catch.
To McVey may be directly charged
the defeat. " l'utty" Lit one at "Old
Hutch" on the second, but he made
an error, and Willie was safe. Joe
Katz strolled np and the next minute
there was a crash and no one saw the
ball at all, it went so fast. A mo
ment's silence, then 18 forms dressed
in ball suits were seen strewn aUiut
the grounds, as if a bowery "pug"
had jumped in ani cut loose. The
cause of it all was that McVev
caught the ball in his right hand anil
didn't know he had it, and Zeis was
doubled at first. Krcig followed
with a hit, and Hill drove one out to
Sccrv, but he made an error, and bin-
Bill came home. Sage. hit to McVev
and was oc.t at first, and that settled
it. The score was as follows:

The torpedo boat Ericsson left St.

the trial trip w ill be made. The lit

make the run that w ill determine her

the boat will surpass the speed re

thereby net her builders a handsome
sum in premiums. Superintendent
Hopkins and K. M. Dickey, of the

was built, will accompany the Erics

before the meeting, however. Rev.
Hoover, of Davenport, president of
the society for seeking homes for the
homeless little ones, asked permis
sion to address the meeting, and it
Rev. Hoover is an excellent lin
guist, and the burden of his address
was an appeal to the Protestants to
care for their many homeless little
ones. He spoke of the work done by
other religious sects in this direc
tion, and more especially of that
done by the Catholics, who, he said,
have always made it a duty to care
for the orphans ami friendless. He
exhorted all the Protestant congrega
tions to emulate their example, inas
much that they should lind homes
for their friendless little ones. He
cited a number of examples, during
his discourse, of the happiness af
forded little folks at a nominal cost,
for keeping and schooling them.
Mi:, Uouvkk has on his list some
thing like 2,Wi) names who have
made application for little ones, and
