Some sensational developments
have come to light over the death of
August Monaruck, mention tt whose
demise was briefly stated in last eve
ning's AKOL8. It seems that Mon
aruck had long been a sufferer with
consumption, and being in poor cir
cumstances and a single man, had no
one to give him the proper treat
ment. He boarded with some of his
country folk on Fourth avenue near
Sixth street. In speakine to a prom
inent physician, and a member of St.
Anthony's hospital board, last eve
ning, an Argus ' representative
learned that the man in question
grew worse Sunday and was ordered
taken to Jst. Anthony s hospital.
Monaruck being at the time too weak
to be moved, some of his
friends hired a carriage, and tak
ing the patient from his bed, started
to the hospital with him,- and stop

the almost dead man drink what

The drive was then resumed, and
when the hospital was reached the
man was dead. One of the men
went into the hospital and told the
sisters that there was a sick man
outside in the carriage, and that he
would like to be treated there. The
sisters went outside to the convey
ance and finding that the man was
dead, told the other occupants that
they ought to take body where it

President Rowe, of the Western asso
ciation, a column roast, first for al
lowing Umpire Needham to officiate
in the games here, and second, allow
ing the last Peoria-Quincy games to
be transferred from the latter city to
the former. The Peoria-Qui'ncv
matter it terms a piece of skulldug
gery that should be investigated by
the association. It concedes Rock
Island the pennant already, but
holds that there has been an unjust
discrimination against Jacksonville
all the season, because of it being
the smallest city in the league. It
is a fact that 'Jacksonville is de
serving of credit for getting
together such a strong team
for so small a city, and no club has
had more friends here up to the last
series when Strouthers made 6uch a
monkey of himself. The assertion
that Umpire Needham gave the Jacks
tho worst of it is entirely groundless.
According to the Courier's article,
Strouthers came here with the expec
tation of finding a cause for a kick
with Needham, and according to his
own declarations before tho first
game was called, he made up his
mind to either drive Needham off the
field or get off himself. The latter
proved the alternative, but the Jacks
simply gave the first two games
away, and did not attempt to win
either after the first few innings.
That there was an occasion for any
such exhibitions as Strouthers made
here, is purely imaginary. He came
prepared for trouble and he found it
when he attempted to run things
with a high hand, just as he does on
the home grounds, and which every
club in the league has pronounced
the hardest city to win in of any.
t i r
It may be said in explanation of the
Courier's statement' that Ward could
have been sent here as well as Need
ham, that Rock Island has had on file
a protest against Ward ever coming
here again since the last time in
which he officiated, when he acted so
ungentlemanly with Director Ohl-
weiler, and since which time he has
given Rock Island the worst of it at
every town. There being but two
umpires in the eastern circuit. Pres
ident Rowe could do nothin? else but
send Needham back, for Ward has
treated Rock Island more shamefully
bjth here and elsewbcne than any
other team in the league has been
served by an umpire.
