Prof. B'chard Manslll, Rock Isl and's authority on plane) ary tcience. reacnea none this morning, ana to an Abgcs representative, who sought ms views on the air snip phenome non, stated that he had no views, in that he had given the subject no consideration. "Indeed," said the professor, "I have not looked for the strange object, and consequently have not seen it. I think the world has been deluded by a vision of Venus. People are dreaming-. Venns is the bright, particular star in the western firmament at this time. It happens everv two years at this time of year that Venus be comes unusually brilliant, and while people not students 01 planetary bcience are not apt to be start'ed with the beauty of the planet, the mote their attention is attracted to it the more thev become impressed with the splendor of the spectacle which lor years has toasted the eyes of astronomers. Oa the 28th of the month VeDUS will disappear and shortly thereafter will become a morning atar. Then, I take it, the people will imagine they see an air ship in the morning. Another star that is attracting much attention now is Alpha, in the southwestern heavens. This illuml nating body has adopted a peculiarly ana particularly red shade, and this too, may have contributed to the excitement that is prevalent over alleged scientifio discoveries." Saw the Ship Aajmln. Passengers on the ferry, Augusta, coming from Davenport shortly after 8 o'clock last night were positive they saw wa air snip, mere were ) cd board and all gazed in wonder at a strange light, this time in the east ern heavens. Tho sky bclcir com pletely overcast there was no uppor tonity to confuse the spectacle with stars, and ail were satisfied they saw an illuminated moving object. Rob ert Solomon, of the Augusta crew, had the boat whistle blow a salute to the passing ship to keep to the ngnt, out it disregarded the marine laws and failed to acknowledge the signal. Solomon afterward speak ing of it said "the light appeared oil in toe east np the river, it seemed about the head of the rapids and moved swiftly in a southerly direc tion. Almost as we gazed it seemed to cross over the upper part of the Island of Rock Island, and cut across the lower part of Molinc, and the east end of Rock Island and finally aisappearea in the southeast. bhortly alter we observed a light rise suddenly in the southwest which soon, sent up a sheet of blaze and disappeared. That was plainly a hot air Datioon started to aeceive no doubt, and eventually might tare, but I feel confident that the first was the air ship." as the prospects are not unfavor able to a clear sky tonight, the pre ent positions of the planets as well as me opportunity to witness the un natural spectacle should be better than was the case last night. Aa enterprising young man sent up nree not air balloons on Twelfth street last night, but only one as cended far enough to be seen. .there are all sorts of funny stories in town today about the air ship hav ing been in the outskirts of Rock Is land Monday, and having been near aiiian yesterday afternoon.

W. H. Catton will arrive home from Chicago at 9:15 tonight via the Rock Island road. He will be met at the train by a brass band and carriage and will be accorded a warm reception by bis friends in this vicinity. His remarkable game at unictgo still the topio of conversation in the sporting fraternity. Catton was slow to begin in the game which made him the winner. At tbe opening bank the men tied. a fact foreshadowicg tbe hard con test that was to follow. Catton won on the seoond trial, counted by the red kissing him on, and fell down on a follow tbrongh the same agency. Both players were palpably nervous and missed in amateur fashion. Spinks was the first to settle down. and. though petting the balls in good position, resigned on a simple carom. At his next venture he gathered 6, opening badly but fin ishing with close work at the top ot the table. Catton was s'lU in dis tress, and the letder tarred his first corner with a break of 23. With an average of a fraction un der 1 for 10 innings, Catton at length came to life with a well gathered 46, missing on a draw shot. His oppo nent secured the line at 15 and ran perfect to 37. the balls lining up at 45. and three shots later the Ca'ifor- nian resigned on a draw. Catton went through a small hole, and his opponent getting the ivories quickly uuo.tr control, startei out un the longest shortstop run on record. After gthering 4), he settled down to delicate work at the too of ... . . 1 me tame, extricating himself from a nad position at 61 by a clever masse shot. Ctifere the first century wi reached be was faced by several did cult problems, but starting on the eecond string he had the spheres again going bsautifully. At 138 a difficult liner was disposed of by a masse, and at 147 a bank shot was necessary. Nearing the second cen tury the ivories again became un ruly, but a line drive at 192 left good Dosiuen, and failure at 194 oa aa easv cushion carom was a great dis appointment. With a cencit of 203 against him Catton opened up with two nervy uphill were a fine effort bad unnerved him, for his next three innings were poor. Catton broke don on a one-cushion shot and mis- cued at hi next attempt, but the tide of success was then flowing his way strongly. Another two dozen in his sixteenth inning, followed by a beaa tiful compilation of 61 and another of 43, Sbrought him within It 9 of his opponent. Catton fell off until he reached his twenty-fourth inning, but in his last seven innings came along with race horse speed. The closing run of 116 was made in fast and accurate fashion, and the rougn places that appeared were smoothed out in masteily fashion spinas added two more useful runs of 20 and 45. and was at the finish of them in the lead by 44 points, but so fa.t did his opponent finish that only a miracle could have helped Spicks out. roe .core: Catton 1. 0. 6. 7.
