MCLEOD ASD ATHERT0I EABIE8T. rroatfar a to ba Oaa of tha Ftaaat Caataata Ertr Saaa la Book ' lalaM Ban Talk About Baa Ball-BUl- tarda. Tonight's wrestling match at Har per's theatre between Dan McLeod, the California wonder, and Ed J. Atherton, of Cuba, N. Y., the cham pion middleweight, promises to be one of the best athletic events ever seen in Bock Island. McLeod being tne cnaiienger or farmer Martin Burns, the champion of the world, and regarded, as he is, as one of the comers in the art. natnrallv attracts mach interest here, while Ed Ather ton, in consequence of his recent struggle 'With Burns, and the splen did showing he made, together with having posted 9100 for a middle weight contest with the champion, has many admirers in Kock island. McLeod agrees to throw Athertin three times in an hour for a wager oi 9?dU. sj teat the go will be earn est and exciting. It is probable, too. that there will be some significant challenges to the farmer during the evening, both on tne part of McLeod and represen tatives of Lewis, and altogeter the occasion will be an unusual one for the sports. Bataa la ob BU Mciaela. The following dispatch was re ceived at The Argus office this morning, from Martin Burns at Monticello, Iowa, where is filling an engagement, and it comes in reply to advices sent mm last night as to the anxiety of Atherton. McLeod and Lewis to meat him, aad the intirat. tions that had been made concerning mm: "Be io your office tomorrow at 11; win wrestle Atherton, McLeod or Lewis. Martin Burks.11 From this the indications for some stirring- events in Bock Island in the near future 6eem to be fir it class. The farmer is evidently on his muscle, nrd is ready to give tnose wno are so zealous about get ting on the mat with him, all they want, lhe rules oi sports give the champion in any branch the right to oiciaie reasonable terms, ana as Burns haa always consistently main tained that all he desired was a fair -match with stakes properly posted and protected, and the conditions three out of fire falls, there ought to be no trouble about arranging the aeries oi matches which are in prospect. BUltarda. Gallagher and Harrison played 400-poin. game of li-inch balk line at Catton1 academy lt night, the former Having 4'iu to Harrison's 230. Gallagher s average was 19 1-19, Harrison's 11. Catton and Gallag her are now practicing lor the rnts burg tournament, articles of agree ment for which were sent to them to be signed today. This is from the St. Louis Repub lic: "Jake Schaefer will luave for New York tomorrow. He will not stop over to pia? uuieite in Cincinnati as that gentleman wants a month to practice for the match. Schaefer says that he cannot spare the time to stay in the west, as he has inter ests in New York that demand his personal attention. Frank Day will not accompany tne wizard east. John Lacari, of the Broadway hall. states that he will probably pnt on match between Billy Catton and Tom baiiaguer at his room next week. Gallagher and Catton wonld be draw ing cards here. It was in this city that Grey Tom learned to play the game, and he is verv popular and well known locally. Catton is one of the foremost shortstops in the country. He is the proprietor of a billiard hall in Bock Island." Baao Ball Brtafa. Berry bill, of Burlington, has 18 men signed. Cear Rapids' management working up the season, ticket plans. ttocklotd people have subscribed 81.800 up to date for their ball nine. Dogdale says they have $2 500 subscribed for the association in Peoria. William Bolles, of the Orion Times, is doing what he can to kerp alive the base ball habit. He wants Gne- -eo, Galva. Kewance and Cambridge to form a lesgue. He has been wriu ioe to base ball devotees, and his fa tare career will be governed largely by their answers. Bock Island fans saw the last rsv of hope for a base ball team here the coming season fade away with the recent make up of the Westen asso ciation, which did not even encoor see a movement to reinstate this city. Yet there is a probability of an independent team being organized in stock inland. Tbere is an axceuent opportunity here for some wideawake, hustling base ball manager. Playera will be plentiful, to lodge from pres ent indications, next summer, and it would be a very easy matter to got a crackeriack aggregation together at a moderate expense. Bock Island is a good ball town, and would give gen erous support to a team if it shoed itself capable of patting up a fair article of ball.' Several nearby cities Beards town for instance will have independent clnbs. and it would not be a hard matter to arrange a series of games. What think yon?

BILL EJTE0DUCED BY MB, MffEHIBY Mm That All Paoplo of Bafann atory Paraoao Will Appiaadaaa Bepa fally Aatiriaata lta Adnptloa Baafc Ialaaa Maaaa Oaa. A bill has been introduced by Representative McEniry in the honse at spnn-Mieia providing lor the ap poimment oi police matrons in cities of 10,000 population or over. As a matter of course, the union of this morning is opposed to the meaure at the first pop out of the box. Peo ple of reformatory purpose, however. will noptfuiiy anticipate the passage oi the measure, xne adoption of such a provision in connection with the police system of cities has long been sought by tnose identified with reformatory measures, and it has been the aim for yean to have it es tablished by cities independent! v. and in view of the fact that so many municipalities have failed at their option to adopt such a course, it is incumbent upon the state to place its sanction upon it. ClUta Tbat HaTO Bad It. Cities which have established the police matron system have demon strated its wisdom amply, and the state's interest camesiu the reforma tory effect, which has been so fre quently shown, and thus has spared the state tne duty of caring lor tnose who if properly guarded and guided in the first steps of waywardness may be led into new paths There is nothing so demoralizing as the asso ciation with hardened characters and with a matron properly trained and fitted to care for and influence females who are detained by the po lice, in an apartment wholly sepa rated from other classes, the work of good to be accomplished cannot be estimated, as statistics show. The end to be attained fully justifies any means which the state may employ in the direction of insuring police matrons in cities the-eize of Bock Isl and. Representative McEniry, who reached home from Springfield last evening, wns seen this morning with reierence to ms bill. "The measure provides for the police matron in the same sense that the laws of the state delegate the right to municipalities to proviae ior anv oBicial." said Mr. McEniry. "The law contemplated simpiy maKes the omce oi police m iron oDiigatory with cities of over 10,000; the manner in which the of Gee is to bo filled is to be left entire ly with the mayor and city council."
