CHAMPIONSHIP AT STAKE
Contenders Are Best Exponents' of
Open Style Game in State
Ijast for West Ends.
The football game Sunday between
the Moline West Ends and the First
Regiment team from Chicago will
bring together two of the fastest in
dependent teams that were ever seen
In the three cities. The Moline team
enjoys the reputation of being the
state champions outside of Cook coun
ty and the First Regiment team mod
estly claims to be the best aggrega
tion in Cook county. This means that
If the Moline boys defeat the team
from th Windy City they will have a
pretty clear claim to the champion
ship of the state at large and Cook
county as well. If they lose they will
have to keep silent on the Cook county
end of the title.
Hrportcd Fat Ilunrh.
A Chicago paper recently devoted
considerable space to the First Regi
ment team, saying that it is one of the
fastest that was ever gathered to
gether by the regiment, which is noted
for its athletic teams Of all kinds. The
players are for the most part old higt
school and university stars who have
passed from the amateur ranks aud
who are eligible to play only with an
independent team. It is said that the
quarterback is the man whom Ecker
Eall chose last year as the all-star hign
school football player of the state.
Several of the other players are in
the same class and the Moline boys
ne expecting the ginie of their lives
when they clash Sunday. The Chicago
team is reported to be adherents tf
the open styl3 of game and if. thi3 is
true the contest ought to be a pretty
one as the West Ends are probably
the best exponents of the open styl-3
game among a majority of the teams
of the state.
Last Game of Year.
The contest will take place at Ath
letic park in Moline and win com
mence at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
Football fans from all over the thre
cities will be there to see the famous
Chicago team, and it is expected that
the largest crowd of the year will re
sult. It will bo the last .game of the
year for the West Ends and it will
close a most successful season. Thus
far -the team has not lost a gam out
of six played and it has had its goal
line, crossed only once during the -year.

pleting the business left unfinished at

RACING MAN GOES BROKE
Edward COrrigan, "Master of Haw
thorne" Has Little Money left.
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 17. Edward
Corrigan, once known throughout the
land of turf and thoroughbreds as "the
master of Hawthorne." is at last on the
financial shoals. Tho man who was
rated In the turf world a few years ago
as a millionaire has filed a petition In
bankruptcy In the United States court,
giving as his liabilities $174,000 and
assets as $13,653. What the salvage
will be. If any. Is problematical. Some
of the debts have been secured, but
the greater part Is based on Corrlgan's
word. John W. Gates is one of his
largest creditors. Corrlgan'a venture
in New Orleans Is given as the cause
for his financial difficulties at present.
His continued warfare with rival mag
nates helped him to his fall.

This was the expression of opinion
made by. Billy Papke when he heard
that Stanley Ketchel had moved up

Live Stock exposition, which is to be
held this year from Nov. 27 to Dsc.
"The International Live Stock ex
position as an educational factor has
carved a niche for itself. Producers
are confronted with the problem of In
creased cost of evory commodity that
they use, greatly enhancing their ex
penditure. Obviously this necessitates
rigid economy, and the man who re
duces cost of production to a mini
mum Insures maximum profits and his
own survival where others fail. The
International is teaching its valuable
lesson to the country at an opportune
moment. During the period of cheap
feed and feed lot extravagance such
education was not valued, because Its
benefits were not realized at the time
Under new conditions, the man who
produces beef, pork and mutton can
not afford the use of inferior machin
ery in his business. Economy requires
that he handle the very best types of
the most improved breeding; and
these lessons can be obtained at tho

which is acknowledged to be an edu
cational institution of the highest or

MAKING A BIG FILL
AT CRESCENT BRIDGE
Costly Improvement Under Way at
Davenport Approach to the
An enormous fill Is being completed
by the Milwaukee road at the Y just
off the Crescent bridge in Davenport.
Sand is being dumped into this place
at the rate of 100 carloads a day,
and although the work has been un
der way two weeks, it will probably
be 30 days before the Job is com
pleted. Sand is being hauled from the Mil
waukee sand pit at Albany and th-j
eand train makes three trips a day.
Three crews of men are employed.
One unloads the sand at the Y; an
other travels back and forth from the
sand pit, and the third loads the cars
at Albany. G. R. Morrison, superin
tendent of the Milwaukee at Savanna,
Is in charge of the work.
The sand is conveyed on flat cars
and is loaded with a large steam shov
el. It is unloaded with a sweep that
starts at one end of the train and
rapidly cleans the cars as it moves
along. The tracks at tho Y are built
cn piles, which will not be moved.
The stringers which support the ties
will be removed.
The fill is about 15 feet deep and
the work will cost considerable
money. When completed it will re
lieve an expense of repairing the tres

three years. The edge along the
