"Boney" was formerly a democrat,
but the republicans o'fTered him the

V. V. Kent Talk of the Outlook The
W. W. Kent, of Jacksonville, gen
eral passenger agent of the Jackson
ville Southeastern, was in Peoria the
other night. "Mr. Kent is the head
and front of the base ball association
in the college city," says the Peoria
Herald, speaking'of his visit, "and he
thinks the matters pertaining to the
Western association are progressing
in line shape. Jacksonville has her
team all signed, with Con JStrothersas
manager, and the city has raised
about f3,00t) with which to put the
club on a sound financial footing.
Mr. Kent is one of the officers of the
league, and all of the cities have re
ported things moving along in line
shape. They have all signed their
men and will be ready for business
when the season opens.
'Peoria is lagging behind the oth
ers, but nothing can be done until
the arrival of Mr. Ilraekett, and he
will surely he here next week. There
are a good many people impiiring
every day about'the matter, ami it is
evident that the citizens who have in
the past supported a team in this
city arc ready to pay their admission
to see good games this summer.
