TALK OF BASE BALL
Fans Think Rock Island Should
be in It Next Year.
OUTLOOK TOR PROSPEROUS SEA305
Interacted Parties Uiwan a Movement to
Arrange Preliminaries Daring the Win
ter Month and be Prepared to be Among
the First to Enter Some AeractaMon.
Rock Island fans don't intend
weathering through another season
without bavin" a base ball team.
So thev have began disenssinsr
a movement already by which they
contemplate launching Rock Island
in one of the western associations
next season. Lovers of the game
leit ine absence 01 a good team here
the past few years. Uock Isl
and made a reputation for herself in
the Western association which will
go down in the annals of base hall
hintorv in couseqneuee of carrying
off the tlg in l.H'JJ, when every city
in the league had excellent player.-.
who lought nara ami earnestly for
distinction. It was indeed a ucmri-.
able Imae ball campaign. The
people of this and surrounding chic
admired the work of the local play
ers and were not ingenerous in
tbeir patronage of the contests.
Base bull always paid well here
when we had a good team. Two
seasons ago when the city was iden
tified with the Western association.
Rock Island enthusiasts were dealt
out a first class article and since
they have not been slow to con
demn anything inferior, but with a
good team Rock Island can prosper
as a base ball town.
Crt to Wotk Ear.'x.
The idea is to set to work immedi
ately if local enthusiasts desire to
have their favorite ainu enient at
home next season; be prepared to
join in the organization of any of the
minor associations at a moment's no
tice. Rock Island was thrown out of
the Western association in favor of
Rockford because she ohjtieted to i )in-
ing in a dual to throw down some oi.e
of the unfavored cities. The Western
associaliou will undoubtedly lie
nxious to receive a team from
this neck of the woods with open
arms next year. This season's ex
p iriencc will prove a good lesson to
that wiso body. A delegation of fans
were discussing the oil' look with
Paddy Lynch, tne old favorite, last
night, and it seemed to be the opin
ion in judging what old veterans of
the game are saying, that next see-
son will be a red letter one for ball.
Lynch savs if a town wants bae ba 1
all the arrangements should le
planned during the fall and winter
and not just at the opening of tie
season, and be prepared to jump
right in and get to work. .
It is believed Uock Island should
have a place in the Western associa
tion next vear. So lot the fans do
their part. There are eeveral good
sitt-s for grounds south of the city
and adjacent to the street car line.
There is no question but what Rock
iMand wants base ball and not later
than next season, either.
Railroad Konte. to the TrauaTaal.
The objective of a railway policy has
been in all cases the gold fields of tho
Kami As a glance at the map will
show, there arc three main routes to the
Transvaal one via (Jape Town and the
Cape railways, a second via Port Natal
ami the Durbau-Chailestowu line, a
third via Delagoa bay and Portngncse
territory unci so along the Netherlands
railway Paul Krusir's pet creation.
Of theso routes, that by Table bay,
while it avoids the storms of Capo
Agullias and tho rough waters of the
south coast, involves by far tho longest
railway journey after disembarkation;
that by Dclagoa the shortest.
It is 3U0 miles by rail between Dela
goa bay and Johannesburg and 1,013
miles by rail between Cape Town and
Johannesburg. Whatever paswiifrers
may do in the matter of choosing rail
way routes, it is clear that for goods
trafiie, iu theso days of cheap v::ter
tr.iusit, Delagoa bay must in the long
run. when gtod management has sue-ci-eded
to bad, be preferred from econom
ical reasons uloue to Tallin bay.
As the merchants t.f Venice were
forced to whistle iu idleness on the his
toric quays of the Adriatic when their
command t.f the casti-ru trade ronte bad
disappeared after the fnir.ccs.iful voyages
of lliaz mid Vasro da Gama, so may it
lie wi'Ji the merchants of Caiie Town.
They eiuit reasn to be tho furwaiding
agents of the bulk of the South African
trade, and they must be supplanted by
their rivals of Natal and nf IXlagoa
bay. Geography is nguinst them as well
as the stern facts of economy, for a rail
way can hardly compete mile per mile
with a steamer. Blackwood's Maga

Friends of Miss Josephine Strom
blade, a pretty Rockford girl, 24
years old, fear she has either . been
foully dealt with in Chicago or is
being kept in hiding to prevent her
from communicating with I datives
in this city. For two years she has
been a studont in the normal depart
ment of Augnstana college, prepar
ing herself for teaching, and would
have completed the course next win
ter. Early iu June she left Rockford
for Chicago, to spend the summer
vacation with friends there. After
several weeks she received an offer
to teach in one of the suburbs, the
gentleman offering the place to her
being a stranger, but she agreed to
go with him and look It over, telling
her friends she would return for her
clothing and personal effect if the
decided to accept it. Since then
nothing has been heard from her by
her Chicago friends, her trunk still
baing at their home, and no message
his come to the Rockford relatives,
who are greatly alarmed over her
di-appearance. The Chicago poliie
have been notified and are now mak
ing a search for her. Rockford
friends will go to that citv and join
in the search. Miss Stroniblade was
very popular here, and has lived in
America since childhood, although
her parents reside in Sweden. , She
is a blonde."
Miss Stroniblade was known in
both Rock Island and Mollne and
much admired. She had planned to
retutn to Augnstana college for the
coming winter term to perfect hr

After tho present emperor ascended
the throne of China his government
yielded the point and agreed to receive
the diplomatic corps in tho same man
ner that they are received by the sover
eigns of Europe. The first ceremony of
the kind, which took place on March 5,
1891, was an event in Chinese history.
The members of the several legations
arrived at Pn Una, or East Flower gate
of the forbidden city, at 10 o'clock on
that morning in sedan chairs, each es
corted by two mounted officers of the
Imperial guard. They were there met
by the members of tho Tsung li Yamtn,
who conducted them to the Shin Yang
Rung, the temple of the great river god,
when they were offered tea aud sweet
meuta An hour later they were escorted
to tho Tsu Knang Ko, or reception hall,
a handsome building profusely decorated
with gilded coverings and ornamented
with gay colors. Tho hall is approached
by eight marble steps, which lead to a
broad marble terrace. Around this ter
