McLeod, the- California champion, and Ed J. Atherton. of Cuba, M. T . wrestled a catch-as- etch can match at Harper's theatre last night, the former fulfilling his agreement to throw his opponent three times in an hour or forfeit $250. McLeod won hia wsger in 49 66. It waa a pretty exhibition of skill and endurance, the New Yorker being obliged to put up with an abundance of the latter, while both men die- played their agility and science at frequent intervals. Mcueoa was ex ceedingly rough at times, and his perseverance in tnis respect naa a wearing tendency, apparently, on Atherton, for in the last oou. ciaim ing that he was nnable to further re sist bis antagonist's strength, be surrendered The wrestlers had a misunder standing about the rests In the earij part of the evening. Atherton not being agreeable to 10-mlnute inter misfeiooa between the iaiu, aniens the time waa deducted from Mc- Leod'a hour. But the articlea cf agreement provided for 10-minute rests independent of the hour. Aih erton also contended that he bad had a verbal understanding with Mc Leod that .hould be (Atherton) win one of the falls, the match would be a s. bnt as this was not stipulated in the articles It would not hold. The argument between the men was sub mitted to the audience by Thomas Gjllagber, the maater of ceremo nies, whose ready explanation of the affair bowed that he was a well rotted sport in the truest sense of the wcrd, and not unaccustomed to appearing before an audience. Whi e Mcbeoa ana Atherton were having their disenssion, Billy Gibson walked before the footlights and read a tele gram which he had just received from Evan Lewis, the strangler, in which he said be would throw the inner of the McLeod-Atherton match three times in an hour on wager of $1,000. L. M. Houseman, spotting editor of the Chicago Inter Ocean, spoke for McLeod, saying that Lewis had not authorized the posting of any money bv Mr. Gibson, and with a wave of his hand inti mated that there was no use for far. ther talk on the subject. But Gib son came out again and explained that while he had no money, with him, he would guarantee that Lewis would cover any amount that Me Leod's friends could put up. And that ended the talking. Oat I'owa ta Bnsla s. George Siler, the well known sporting editor of the Chicago Trib une, ana who has been chosen to preside at the Corbett-Fitzsimmona tight, refereed the match. W. M. Reece, of Davenport, L. M House man, of Chicago, and John Cowden, of thin oitv. officiated aa timekeeoera - . k M. Leoa ana Atherton both appeared iresn ana in gooa spirits when they met mitt to mitt on the mat. The Californian had the best of his an tagontet by 14 pounds. In the first bout, in fact throughout the match. the audience was treated to aome of the prettiest feats In wrestling ever seen in Rock Island. McLeod got the first fall on a hammer lock in 22:45. The second was won on half Nelson and crotch lock in 11:25 In the third boot Atherton was given several violent falls, the Californian once rushing to the rear of the mat with bis man, who waa thrown over against the scenery. McLeod re tained bis bold, and Atherton rolled from shoulder to shoulder, twice narrowly escaping a fall. McLeod followed Atherton up with increased fierceness, the latter tonally giving up ana losing tne iaii in 15:45 Atherton several times took the part of the aggressor, but each time soon feu dsck to tne aetensive. con Id not be- cancelled, it had been advertised for weeks in ad vance. He had come aa soon aa ho could, and was prepared to give sat isfaction to any ana ail seeding an engagement with him. He found that Atherton naa witnarawn iaii ight the $100 posted for a match at 151 pounda, and that both McLeod and Atherton had gone without leav ing any traces of their actual desire to meet him. Bwdf ta Heat Amj of Tkta. I am ready to meet Atherton, McLeod and Lewis in succession. 1V the farmer said. 'I will endeavor to train down to 16S pounda mad give Atherton bia mateb: then 1 will take McLeod and then Lewis. I will cover any amount of money any one of them puts up, bnt I am not going to post any money until thev do; and furthermore. I do not seek any more privilegea than are properly accorded to a champion. It Ather ton or McLeod had been here today I would have signed articlea with either of them, and deposited a rea sonable amount to cover the stipula tions-assented to. I do not believe in wrestling with the month, and 1 am not going aroand looking for people to tnrow, l admit that, but those who do ao much talking about me ought to wait over a train cr so to see me, when they know I am com ing in response to their desire. That's all." The conduct of both McLeod and Atherton in this instance does not sustain a atriklngly eager desire on the part of either to come to the scratch when the opportunity actn ally occurs, and it ia to be hoped we win near less cmn music par ticularly from McLeod, in the future BelJEOO LEA VB i IX lilt.

The third lecture in the Roek Isl and University Extension course ws delivered in the H:ga school assem biy room last evening by rror. Ed win E Sparks. The topic was "John Marshall and the Federal Judiciary." The speaker held that the experience with the early iorms or judicial power wrought out a model in the supreme court, and the direction of its growth is de pendent for the most part upon the senuoient of - its constitu ency. Bearing for 35 yeara the im prints of John Marshall, its general tendency has been toward federalism and a strong government. Its great est service haa been in calling the people back to correct principles of self government, and its perpetuity depends upon their confidence and esteem. The lecturer reviewed the colonial courts, the federal judicial system, the service of John Marshal as chief justice, tbe later formative cases and the place of the judiciary The next lecture will be on the topic, "Daniel Webster and the American Bar," next 1 rid ay night. and Bmk Irta aw ta tke Start at Sartaaaan already la Twsaf taa Sales KiiiawWa Sneaker Curtis, of the house of representatives of the Iiliaoia gen eral assembly , haa announced but two of hia really important committees. bnt they are tbe two most prominent. and Hon.

A Kentucky pig has suddenly devel oped a genius for gymnastics and en gineering which eclipse tbe proudest previous achievements of hia race. This eminent pig was recently placed by his owner in a pasture sorroaaded by high wall and ornamented by elm trees festooned with wild grnperines. Tbe walln, however, could not confine hia bold and vagrant spirit. Selecting tree standing near the western wall of tbe pasture, he carefully bit loose tbe lower end of a stout grapevine, wbicb was attached by its tendrils to a limb on a tree, and, taking thia improvised rope in his mouth, swung himself in the air until be gathered an impetus which sent him entirely over tbe wall and landed bim in tbe next field.
