The following, appearing in the
Davenport Leader, shows the effect of
three straight defeats on the town
across the river that boasts of its
f portsmanship: - "Umpire Krennun
drew out in the fifth inning, disgust
ed with the dirty work of the Hock
Island fans who,persisted in objecting
to Davenport having the one run
which was given them. The run
came on a fake steal of second by
Evers and the crowd was so dense
that they could not understand.
Hock Island is awfully rural, anyway.
They have a bunch of 33rd degree
fans who sit up on the bleachers anJ
advise the batter to 'soak it real
hard, Jack, and knock a window out
of the loft of Snyder's onion patch.
It quite reminds one of an old fash
ioned shucking bee. Jack lirennan is
a good umpire, whatever else may be
said against him, and his decisions
were derided yesterday with hisses
and cat calls by the people of his
home town. He simply could not
stand the pressure and left the field.
There is one other redeeming feature
of the game. It was the last of the
season with Hock Island." Those
knowing the, real situation will best
appreciate the ridiculousness of the
foregoing from the Leader. If any-'
thing, Umpire Hrennan has been fa
vorable to Davenport on all occasions
when playing with Hock Island, rts
some of the honest people from that
town are willing to admit. As to a
comparison of the conduct of the
Rock Island and Davenport fans, the
charitable thing for a paper here
to reserve comment. However, Kock
Island has been game from the start
and has stuck by its team through
victory and adversity, while Daven
port was only in evidence when its
club was winning. Losing, iff could
not find a friend to even lend encour
agement. - - -V -

DOG vs. ELECTRICITY:
ANIMAL TAKES SECOND
A white dog, part bull and larger
than the average of his kind, yester-daj-
came to this city from Daven
port, following a Bridge line car on
which his master evidently rode.
The owner seems to have transferred
to a Blue line car and alighted with
out the dog's knowledge, for the ani
mal continued to follow the car back
and forth between this city and Mo
line till well into the afternoon, when
the street car men took pity on him
and tied him up at the barn. He was
nearly exhausted. In the evening the
animal was removed to the police
station, where he was given a cell to
await the appearance of his owner.
This afternoon the mystery of the
dog's ownership was cleared away.
He is the property of William II.
Miller, of Davenport. The family re
cently moved to Davenport from
Iowa City, where the animal had
been in the habit of following hose
carts and other vehicles. He appears
to have taken after a Bridge line car,
as he had been in the habit of doing
with hose carts at home, and on com
ing to this side he fell in with th?
Fourth avenue car.

ing of a wagon bridge across Hock

told of the efforts that have so far
been made. lie said the petitions
that have been circulated in both
counties will be placed before the
board of sujiervisors of the two
counties this week and there seems
to be little doubt of favorable action.
If cither board votes to build th
bridge, under the interpretation of
the law, the other county can be com
pelled to pay its pro rata share of
the cost. Mr. Burrall said that tw
r three sites are proposed. Those
favoring the upper one, or that at
Cleveland ferry, have circulated sub
scription papers and have secured
pledges amounting to about $1,000.
The others have proceeded on the
heory that the bridges ought to be
paid for by taxation alone and no
money has been raised for the con
struction of the bridge opposite Bar
stow or Carbon Cliff.
The association passed a resolution
favorable to the erection of the
bridge at one of the sites proposed.

President Kingsbury appointed a
committee composed of E. B. Mc-
Kown, W. J. Hess and T. F. LaYelle
to appear before the board of super
visors at the meeting this week in
the interests of the enterprise.
Enterprise of C. R. I. A I.
President Kingsbury called atten
tion to the fact that the Kock Island
road is getting out a pamphlet set
ting forth the advantages of location
ind shipping facilities of the towns
and cities connected by the system to
be circulated among the business an I
manufacturing men of the country.
communication from representative
organizations of this city had been
asked for and the president, upon mo-
iou, appointed a committee compos
ed of T. F. LaVelle, E. B. McKown
and George Schneider to draft a let
ter of the character desired.
There was some complaint of the
manner in which the rule of the asso
ciation requiring the individual mem
bers to refrain from signing peti
tions and agreement's affecting gen
eral business relations without their
having been put to a vote at a meet
ing has been violated. The particu
lar instance in question was that of
Labor dav, when an agreement was
circulated and signed on this side of
the river for the closing of stores a!l
day. Members stated that they clos
ed up and went across the river only
to find the Davenport stores doing
business. A number of instances in
which customers had gone to Daven
port during the day to trade were
cited and Ilating-book Secret ary
Burns was instructed to publish the
rule monthly in the bulletins to the
merchants, in order that it shall be
kept in mind. i

The Milan bridge question was up
and the president was instructed to
appoint a committee to appear before
the city council and work in conjunc
tion with the committee from th
Kock Island Club in guarding the in
terests of the business men in the
matter. W. C. Maucker, O. M. Loosely
and F. T. Myers were delegated to

TALES OF THEATRE.
"A Husband on Salary," the fa roe
comedy which makeM its initial Kock
Island appearance at the Illinois to
morrow evening, is written for laugh
ing purposes, and the .management
claims for it, the full requirements
illotted to it. Though new to local
theater-goers, the play has an es
tablished reputation of five years
standing and is today one of the most
popular of eastern comedies. Ihe
company which will present it here
is said to be evenly balanced, and in
eludes among its members some of
the best farce comedy players.
- The "Foxy Ouiller" opera company
will appear in this city at the Illi
nois. Sept. 29. No eonnc opera writ
ten in recent j'ears has attracted .mi
much attention as "Foxy punier.
Mr. de Koven's music of "Foxy Quill
er" is of the most entrancing quality
Iu it the composer has abandoned
the tiresome two-step movement, al
though the opera contains a thrilling
march, but he has made the waltz
rvthm dominant. The first act is laid
in England, and here Mr. de Koven ad
heres to the old English song form
movement with the madrigals, glees
and strong choral writing, for which
work on unusually fine male chorus
is employed. The second and third
acts-are laid in Corsica, and here
Mr. de Koven enters into the Italian
school with its soft sensuous move
ments, its intoxicating waltzes and
its world of melody. Altogether
"Foxy Quiller" is by far the best com
ic opera that Mr. de Koven nas jet
produced. Its hit has been sharp.
pronounced and emphatic. Mr.
Smith's book tells a cleverly witty
story and telU it well. In the com
pany are Kichard Golden, one of the
foremost comedians on the operatic
stage, Miss Marion Field, who has
won triumphs abroad. Adolph Zink,
one of the original liliputians, and
Miss Daisy Hamlin.
Not since the days when N. 15. Cur
tis made his great success in "Sam'l
of Posen" has any actor given to th;
stage the Hebrew- character as he re
ally is. Until recent years the de
mand for this closs of character was
limited, but since the great successes
of Weber & Fields, George Sidney,
Dave Warfield and numerous others
tfie demand has been so great that
managers find it diflicult in securing
the class of actors that can imper
sonate this class of work. Sam Mor
ris, who assumes the title role A
Moses Levi in "The Peddler's Claim,"
has given this character a very care
ful study and both press and public
are unanimous with his artistic in
terpretation. Manager Marks has
surrounded Mr. Morris with a very
carefully selected company, complete
scenic production. All in all "The Ped
dler's Claim" is well worth seeing. It
will be at the Illinois tonight.
The coming production of "The
Land o' Cotton" at the Illinois Thurs
lay evening promises one of the pret
tiest southern dramas now before th.
American public. Being laid in the
sunny south, the situations anord
ample" scope for the scenic artist's
embellishment, and affords a most
excellent opportunity for the display
f Milt G. Barlow's versatile talents.
Mr. Barlow is one of the best known
of the old line of minstrel men and
his departure from that field will lie
in innovation, but with his ready
talent he can but be a success.
