'___ tu th f wk THE FINEST—According to reports some of the Alton "finest" hpve not shone resplendent when official business has called them to the county seat. A few months ago one of the "force" was before the Circuit Court as a witness in a case of assault and. battery. The question was asked him. "Did you consider it mayhem P" "Mayhem, thunder," was the response, "no, it was Soott," and so poor old "mayhem" went scott free. Spring Shawls and Wraps, at Pierson& Carr Dry Goods Go's.

MoGinnla, the pitcher, Is doing very fine ball tossing for the Cinclnna- Ms. The Loutsvilles are .kicking strongly against what they call Mullane's unfair delivery. , King, the Brown's clover young pitch* or, Is a six footer. He is a brick layer by trade. The Nationals will play the Collins- villo nine Sunday, in Edwardsvillo, weather permitting. The Chicagos are in the same fix the Browns wnro in during the spring oha pionshlp series—disabled pitchers. Ah, there I A Chloagoan thinks no rule could be made to muzzle Latham. Ho would preach at his own funeral. The Hudson nine have bought the uniforms used by the Altons last year, and will use them in their games in future. Broutbers and Keefe will fill the vacancies in the Alton team in the next game, vice Whistler and Hemp resigned . The big batters are all getting over their high and low ball scare. With very few exceptions they find they can hit either. • The Homo Comfort club is a strong one, and will show up well in the Alton game. The nine is composed of Charter Oaks and Little Nicol clubs. The officers of the Alton B. B. A., are: Larry Farley, Manager; M. Kiley, Treasurer: H. Wm. Bauer, Secretary, and J. Mullen, Cor. Secretary. Browning uses the heaviest bat in the Louisville collection. None of the other players ever strike with it, as they say the bat is too much like a saw log. Umpire Geo. V. Burbridge's loss of position is mainly due, says a Nashville >aper, to 'his weakness in not silencing open kicking against his decisions. The new uniforms are promised for Sunday, consisting of blue shirt, pants and stockings, and white bolts and caps with blue trimming. Good color to show the dirt! The Chronicle says that Bouchard and Milliard saw the sea serpent in the Mississippi; If that's the ' "brand" they imbibe it's no wonder the St. • Joe club released them. Hemp and Shultz have joined the Topeka club of the Western League; they will be at home, as it were, for Perry Werdon and Goldsby are in the same club. Titcomb is one of the few pitchers who never has a soro arm. Ho has an elegant limb for twirling, master of all he curves and deliveries, and only needs plenty of practice, In the game between Binghamptons and Scranton, Al. Warner made two >ase hits, had five assists, stole two >ases and made one error. Four earned runs wore made off his pitching. A base ball association has been formed in Wichita, Kan., in which F. K. illespie, of Edwardsvillo, is one of the stockholders, the capital stock is $12,- iCO. Mr. G. has also been selected President. A good deal of conjecture is abroad as to the composition of the home nine, hrough unavoidable changes. It is safe to predict that Brouthers and Smith will not weaken tho team in any way, and, with;uiorfc,will rather strengthen it than otherwise. Although Whistler will be missed before the season is over. ?£ The Mots are in a bad way. Holbert, c; Orr, lb;Eslerbrook, ss; Meister, 2b; Morrison, p: and O'Brien, c, all disabled. Mays is .handicapped by the new rules. Dave Orr was seriously in- jiirect by his collision with Andy Som. mera. Both men were running at full speed for a high foul hit. They came together with great force and both fell to the ground. Sommers' head hit Orr in the mouth, breaking two tooth and cutting bis tongue almost through. Orr bruised his left knee very badly, and received a terrible blow in the ohest,from which he had several hemorrhages. Ho is unable to leave bis bed, and will not play ball for several weeks. Philadelphia has the finest'ball park in the world. Tho shortest line from homo plate is tho right field foul lino, which Is 290 feet; but as the the wall', with its 12 feet of wire on top, boasts a total height of 24 feet, this is equivalent to at least 75 feot of horizontal exten<- sion of tho lino. The centre field boundary ia 390 feot, and tho left field 425 foot from homo plate. ifO.OOO poo* pie can hnd seats. Tho right field seats consists of 22 rows, 180 feot in length, and tho loft field scats of 20 rows, nearly 800 feot In length, and together will comfortably accommodate upwards of 7,COO persons, and at leant 06 carriages in the sheds built uutlor- ueuth.

Bruoggomann has started for Los Angeles, Cal., to be absent a mouth. Dr. A. K. MoKinnoy started on a trip to Peoria and other northern cities last evening. Hon. 1. Cox sends us a copy of tho House, Hovonuo Laws, a document of such voluminous proportions as to make one tired to look at it. Senator Hadlay will bo in town tomorrow morn Ing', to confer with some of our leading citizens in regard to matters of legislation at Springfield. Archdeacon F. M, S. Taylor, of SU Paul's church, and Mr. C. H; Carmi- ban returned last evening from attending the Episcopal Synod at Springfield. Dr. Waldo Fisher leaves for Omaha, Neb,, today, where he intends locating in his profession. His many friends here will part from him with regret, but wish him prosperity in his new location. Remember we carry only first class goods. Our price are the lowest.— Morrissey Bros. It Notice. The committee on Streets and Alleys will meet at 9 o'clock a. m., at tho office of the City Clerk on Saturday, May 7, '87. J. E. COPMNOIKE, 5 2 Chairman. Money to loan on improved fiirm property. For nartSculars, apply to WHIPPLE & SMILEY. THE importance of the improvement of Eighth street from Alby to Henry cannot be over estimated. In that large section of the city, lying between Sec. ond and Twelfth.Henry and Alby streets, ;here is not a, single street; between Second and Twelfth, on which a loaded team could make its way from Alby to Henry street, and there are no passs able sidewalks, east and west within ;he same limits. The people have for fears been asking for a central street through this section, from east to west, but with no result, beyond the passage of ordinances which were never executed. Besides the convenience of the public it should be remembered that Eighth and Alton streets are the mam thoroughfares of approach to Lincoln school, where six hundred children ats tend from all parts of the city. Every taxpayer in the city who has children at this school is interested in this improvement. Another point is this: the streets named are now, and have been for years, in such wretched condition that it is only by the greatest exertion that a load of coal can bo delivered at Lincoln school, and then only by driving clear around by Twelfth street. We believe the new Street and Alloy committee appreciate the importance of this improvement and will put' it through. New Fans at Pierson &~Carr Dry Goods Go's. It Notice.
