Daveapart Abom Otaara Wto Are Cn- iS Caper BUvartVeBa-M. Davenport. Burlington and Du- buque are talking of organizing a league up and down the Mississippi, a sort of river league as it were. C u. boss, 01 Burlington, nas written the following letter to Matt Fulton, a director of the Dubuque club last year: I have your letter of the 22d and have carefully considered the con tents. Brackett has had some cor respondence with ns here regarding the transfer of the Uuincv franchise to Dubuque, and 1 am informed that ne nas also been corresponding with me jsuruagion people about the same. I have no doubt but what an 8-club interstate league would draw wen, ana wouia pay very good inter est on the investment. I think we would experience no difficulty in carrying it through were we sure we could get the right cities. There is but one way in which it could be successfully carried out. and that is for eight cities to deposit the sum of $500 each as an evidence of good faith that they would rnn through the season, and any failure on their part to forfeit the $500. We would not countenance another league like the Eastern Iowa. I ahould be willing to attend a meeting if one was called with a view of forming an interstate league, but unless each citv would denoait $500 by the first day of January in the hands of some responsible per son who could be selected as treas urer, I think it would be waste of time to bother with it on any other grounds." If Davenport. Quincy. Burlington, Ottnmwa. Dubuque. 'Jacksonville, Springfield, and some other good city will meet and send one or two good representatives who are authorized to act and go prepared to put up the necessary amount, you can count on Dubuque being there and to remain from start to finish, says the Du buque Times. Tba Local reeling. It may be added that the old Wes tern association is practically on its last pins. Dissentions within such as are the natural result of con trol in the hands of such men as manipulated the affairs last season have resulted in break-ups through- uui. mo circuit, ana as lar as Kock Island is concerned it would prefer to see an entirely new organization perfected of good teams such as com posed the Western association the hrst year, before Rockford intruded, and when all was prosperous and good games were the order but un der different management from that wnicu boldly robbed Rock Island of its franchise a year ago at Des Moines. , AmaHDUBU.

These plays require an unusually fine company and Mr. Andrews has surrounded himself with one of the most perieci, reuned comedy com panies of the season.

Stat Bap lata as t Aaaoraoaa Cartlfl. at Pima far ISM. State Superintendent of Public In struction S. M. Inglis has issued a circular letter to teachers and others throughout the state. The letter is devoted to state certificates. After quoting the law regarding these cer- tiucates ana setting out tne require ments necessary to seeure sne same by examination, which has been pub lished heretofore, the superintendent makes an announcement for special work for 1896. : Ue states that the examinations in general history will mciuoe ureece from tne beginning to 146 B. C. and in England from 447 to 1600 A. D. The examination in English literature will consist in part oi questions on the following: American, Lowell's Commemoration Ode, Emerson's Slf Reliance and Webster's Second Bunker Hill Ora tion. British. Shakespeare's Julius Cassr and .DickensV Tale of Two Cities, ' The work in Latin will com prise Sallnst's Conspiracy ot Cati line, and Virgil's Aeneld books two and three with various questions of etymology, syntax, prosody and his tory and translations from English into Latin. The work in Greek, German and French comprises the best known works in those lan. gusges. . . Boards of Examination.' A board of examiners will be ap pointed for each place where exami nations are to be held consisting of one conductor and three or more as sistants. For a 6-vear certificate an average of 75 is required within a minimum of 70 in any branch. For life certificates 80 per cent is re quired with a minimum of 75. Xbese examinations will be held Aug. fi, 6 and 7. 1896. at the follow ing places: Chicago, Freeoort, Galesburg, Springfield, Normal. brougham and East .St. Louis. ferry Chargca. When called upon by an Abgus representative this morning to ascer tain the position of the company with reference to the allegations made by teamsters to city officials that the Rock Island & Davenport Ferry company was charging 75 cents for teams each way, which is 25 cents in excess of the ordinance re quirements, J. F. Robinson, of the company, said the company was re ducing the rate rather than increas ing it. The ordinance allows us 50 cents each way for teams and 25 cents for, buggies," he said. Now we are holding up the price of bug gies to the extent that is provided, but as to teams we are making a rate of 75 cents for the round trip instead of each way to the public in general, which would not come to us if the bridge was open, while to those who patronize us the year around, when we can run, we are selling tickets at 50 cents for the round trip half the amount we are allowed to."
