The city clerk last evening at the

through some uufortunate mistake,

who, if the grade was not changed,
would suffer severely on that ac

Several weeks ago a little fellow.
Jimmie Ward by name, came here to
umpire a few games in Rock Island.
Jimmie was a little bit yellow, and
said, "Well, I am rather punk, bnt I
can do worse." Kd Cline came here
and umpired his first game last Sat-
uruay, and since his debut in Rock
Island, he has gone from bad to
worse, until yesterday the height of
his yellowness was as high as a stee
ple. When the game was called, Cline,
took his position behind MctJrevev,
with Daniel Dionysus Sweeney at
the bat. Here he showed his knowl
edge of balls and strikes in
a most gaugrer.ous manner. He
would call a strike to reach
wkich little Danny Sweeney would
have had to borrow one of the old
electric light towers to touch. But
Danny got a base, Cantillon hit to
Sommers and that gentleman errored,
Katz sacrificed, and while Zeis was
at the bat Johnson had a passed ball
and Sweeney came home. Cantil
lon tried to do the same, but was
put out at the plate. Zies inade a
base hit and was put out stealing

nothing, for rolled up a parody.
Rock Island failed to score in the
second ditto Cuincy. In the third
Joe Smith, Kock Island's new pitch
er, came to the bat. Smith is a
young fellow, and gives great prom
ise of being an excellent player. He
played yesterday as if " he was
born and raised in Kock Isl
and; not for one instant during
the whole game did he lose
his head, and Doc" Sage has been
severely criticised for taking him out
of the box in the last inning just be
cause Mangan made a hit and Mertes
a 3-base hit. If ever a boy deserved
to be given a show. Smith does, for
during the whole game but live hits
were made off his delivery. As has
been said. Smith came to the bat in
the third and slammed out a nice
single. He weet to second on a
passed ball and to third on Swee
ney's base hit. Joe Cantillon
hit to MeGrevey, and, on an error by
that gent. Smith came home and
Sweeney went to third. Cantillon
stole second, and Kut;: made a sin
gle, on which Sweeney scored. Zies
hit to lirst. anil Joe Cantillon came
home, while Katz was ''eing put out a
second. lreig Hew out 111 center, and
Putty was doubled at lirst. For the
ensuing three innings Kock Island
failed to score, but not so with Quin
cy. In the lirth it scored three on
three hits and Joe Katz's error iu
letting a ball roil through him.
Then came a game of see-saw with
Ed Cline ia the middle, and giving
Kock Island the worst of it to the
end. The ninth inning settled
things. The summary is as follows:

llase Hull History.
Forty-eight years ago the lirst
match game of base ball was played.
This pioneer game took place at IIo
boken, N. J., and the score was so
big that the man who was keeping
tally gave it up after the lirst inning
and refused to look upon anything
less man nye runs in succession as
The glorious game of base ball
grew out of the old game of round
ers, an English idea. In the fall of
1815 a number of New Yorkers or
ganized a club which they called
-i ne Knickerbockers." L.at.er a club
called -'The New Yorkers" was put
into me neiii, and early in June,
1840, the two began to challenge each
other. On June 13 the first game
History says that it lasted but four
innings, when the Knickerbockers
were so far ahead thut the other fel
lows went home and wouldn't play
Base ball grew slowly. It was'not
until 1860 that it became in any de
gree popular. In that year a num
ber of clubs were organized, and in
Philadelphia several really interest
ing games were played. Up to this
time a rubber ball was used, but so
much time was lost in going over
into the next county for it after
every hit that a harder and less en
ergetic ball was devised. This re
duced the time of the game and in
creased the size of the bumps on the
Up to 1871 ball rdavine was in
dulged in as an amateur sport, but
in that year it began to take rank as
professional. Since then we have
heard more about the troubles of
managers and of releases and sign
ings than of the actual game.
In spite of all sorts of predictions,
base ball continues to be popular.
There is no indication that it will
soon cease to be the recognizced
game of the nation.
Sage and his players, it seems,
could not win with a company of reg
ulars to back them up.
Quincy's old first baseman, good
natured Krehmeyer, is playing in
right lield. Sommers is playing
lirst. and Mangan. Peoria's old short
stop, is playing third base.
The Rock Islands seem to have de
termined to beat Quincy out of the
tail end of the league. A brave stag
ger at it was made yesterday. Keep
it up, boys, and you will get there.
Ed Cline with a federal soldier's
suit might have an electrifying effect
upon some of the stock yard strikers,
but his appparance here in the toga
of umpire, is anything but edifying.
Chapen, the little fellow from St.
Louis, who was given a trial at short
yesterday, showed up in great form.
He only had one error and that an ex
cusable one. He also made a nice
hit and as neat a sacrifice as one
J. C. Smith, the new pitcher from
Whitewater, Wis., pitched yesterday
and showed not only great speed, but
curves as well. He is also an excel
lent stricker and base runner, and
had two nice hits and two runs to
his credit yesterday.
