The Islanders took a crimp in the
chesty Prodigals and Incidentally
broke up their winning streak, by
defeating them in the game in Dav
enport yesterday by a score of 4 to
2. Christy Wilson did the work for
the locals and he made 'the Daven
porters look like" a lot of "mikes."
Mad it not been for an error by Ber
ger in the fourth inning, there would
have been a shutout to Wilson's
credit, and it is more than likely that
he would have held them to not
more than three hits. .The error,
which was responsible for the two
runs which the Prodigals made, took
a little or the snap out of Christy
and did not work quite so hard,
as he was pretty sure of winning the
game, and lie did not want to hurt
, Hill Fleet twirled gord ball for
the Prodigals and allowed the Is
landers six hits, but his own wild
ness in the first inning arid errors
behind him made six hits a great
plenty to win the game. The first
three runs of the Islanders came in
the initial inning, when Fleet passed
Imth Murphy and Berger. Meloan
laid down a pretty sacrifice wnieh
moved them within scoring distance
ami after Swacina had made a fruit
less effort which ended in a foul,
McHrbie came to tne plate with his
favorite bat and 'delivered the goods,
as lie has done many a time before,
and just what we expect him to do
many a time in the future. His hit
was a clean singie into left field on
which both Murphy and Berger cross
ed the plate and Mac went to second
on the useless throw home." He
scored from there a minute later
when Kelley drove another single
into left field. .
stark Im Clever.
The fourth of the Islanders' runs
came in the fourth and was the re
sult of some clever work by Stark.
Claude drew a hit over third base
when there were two men flowni and
with Voge! at the bat he stole sec
ond in most approved style. Not
content with this he waited until
four balls were thrown to Otto and
then pro eeded to steal third. Then
the double steal was attempted and
it worked to perfection, as McGrow
muffed the short throw to second and
both runners were safe. That end
ed the scoring for the Islanders, and
they rested during the remainder of
the game and allowed Wilson to keel
the Prodigals from tying up the con
test. The two runs of the Da ven porters
came in the fourth inning after the
locals had piled up their fourth run.
Wnh one man down, .Mctirew hit a
high one to short left, Berger butted
in on McBride and the ball was
muffed. "Lefty" C.eyer found one or
Christy's curves to his liking and he
pa.;ted it nearly to the back fence,
scoring l'ietz and landing on third
himself. Warrender followed with a
drive out to Meloan who made a good
try alter eatehingthe ball to throw
Cever out at the place, but it was
useless ;ir.d the second of the Prod'
igals' riiiss came in. Christy had the
Davenporters at his mercy for the
remainder of t lie game and the score
fnded as it sroon in the fourth in
ning. The score:

A number of enthusiastic (before
the game) Davenport fans, had ar
ranged for plenty of food for a huge
bonfire which was to appear on the
levee after the game, but when it
was all over none of them even came
within a mile of the levee.

Stark cut up on the bases in a
scandalous manner yesterday, steal
ing two of them in one inning and
scoring a minute later in a double
steal. His work so grated "on the
nerves of the Prodigal fans that
should he do it again some of the
bugs are sure to go bugs.
Christy Wilson grinned and grin
ned and made the Prodigals look
sick, lie had them on the hip all
the time and they seemed to know
it, for they came up to the plate in a
heartless fashion and whenever they
did get a hit, no one. was more 'sur
prised than they were themselves.
Had Wilson received a little, better
support, not. a run would have been
scored off hi in. ,
From the tone or the crowd which
witnessed the game, it was all Dav
enport before it started and all Rock
Island after it started. The several
hundred Islander fans who were
there made more noise than the
whole Davenport contingentJ Still,
this' is nothing to be wondered at. as
the Rock Island people ' really had
something to yell about. After the
first inning there was nothing but
whimpers and sobs from the Daven
porters. - Candy Pushers Lose.
The employes of Hartz & Bahnsen

Christy Wilson's victory over Dav

fact that Chris has never lost a game
to Davenport in the five years' in which
he has been playing on the Rock Island
club. During that time, Wilson has
pitched about 25 games against tlK'
Davenporters and every one of them
has resulted in defeat for the aggrega
Hon from across the river. The scores
have ranged from 1 fo 0 to big scores
of 12 and 10, but the larger number
has always been credited to Christy'.;
team. If ever a man had the goat of
another team Wilson ought to hav.e
that of the Davenport team, if they
would only think over the games of
