TALK OF BASE BAIL
Fans Think Rock Island Should
be in It Next Year.
OUTLOOK FOB PROSPEROUS SEASON
Interacted Partle. Uiwail a Movement to
AtTM PreUmtnarl. Daring th Wn.
tr Month, and bo Preparou" to be Ab
th. tint to Enter Soma Aatoclallon.
Rock Island fans don't intend
weathering through another season
without having a tase ball team.
So they have began discussing
a movement already by which they
contemplate launching Rock Island
in one of the western associations
next season. Lovers of the game
felt the abtenre of 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 ball
history in consequence of carrying
off the Bg in JS'Ji, when every city
in the league had excellent player?,
who fought hard and earnestly for
distinction. It was indeed a memor
able baie ball campaign. The
people of this and surrounding chics
admired the work of the local play
ers and were not in;enerous in
tbeir patronage of the contests.
Base ball 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 lirst 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.
(irt to Wotk Ear'j-.
The idea is to set to work immedi
ately if local enthusiasts desire to
have their favorite ninu ement 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 nt-snciatioii in favor of
Uockford because she objected to join
ing in a dual to throw do n some oie
of the unfuvort el cities. The Western
association will undoubtedly be
anxious to receive a team from
this neck of the woods with open
arms next year. This season's ex.
psriencc will prove a good lesson to
that wise body. A delegation of fans
were discussing the on' look with
faddy Lynch, the 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 says 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 Rock Island should
have a place in the Western associa
tion next year. So lot the fans do
tbeir part. There are several 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 Routes to the Transvaal.
The objective of a railway liolicv has
been in all cases the gold fields of the
Kami. As a glance at the map will
show, there are three main routes to the
Transvaal one via Cape Town and the
Cape railways, a second via Port Natal
ami the Duiliau C'liui lestowii line, a
third via Delago bay and Portugese
territory and so along the Netherlands
raiiwty Paul Krujivr's pot creation.
Of theso routes, that by Table bay,
while it avoids tho storms of Cape
Agulhas and tho rough waters of the
south coast, involves by fur tho longest
railway journey after disembarkation;
that by Delagoa tho t-horUst.
It w 3'JG miles by rail between Dila-
poa bay and Johannesburg and 1,013
miles by rail between Cape Town and
Johannesburg. Whatever passengers
may do in the matter of choosing rail
way roates, it is clear that for goods
trafli, in theso days of cheap wr.ter
transit, Delaoa bay must in the long
run. when k"1 management has suc
cvded to bad, be preferred from econom
ical reasons alone to Tallin bay.
As the merchants t.f Venice were
forced to whist I iu idleue&s on the his
toric quays of the Adriatic when their
command of the eastern trade route bad
disappeared after the successful voyages
of Diaz and aseo ila 4aiuu, so may it

They aiust ceae to 1 tho forwaiding
aK' iiis tif the bulk of the South African
trade, and thy nmst be supplanted by
their rivals tf Xatal and of I Magna
bay. Geography is npiinst them as well
us the stern facts of econonir, for a rail
way can hardly compete mile per mile
with a steamer. Blackwood s Maga

go with him and look It over, telling
her friends she would return for her

THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS BEFORE THE

Stiff Kecked Ceremony la the Hide of
Rich Trapplnca Xacnlfloent Temples
and Falema In tho Forbidden City.
After the present emperor ascended
tbo 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 eover
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 Fu Hna, or East Tlower gate
of the forbidden city, at 10 o'clork on
that morning in sedan chairs, each es
corted by two mounted officers of the
Imperial guards. They were there met
by the members of tho Tsung ii Yamen,
who conducted them to tho Shin Ynug
Knng, the temple of the great river god,
when they were offered tea and sweet
meats. Au hour Liter they were escorted
to tho Tsu Knaug Ko, or reception hall.

with gilded coverings and ornamented
with gay colors. Tho hall is approached
by eight marble stops, which lead to m
broad marble terrace. Around this ter

of marble, pure white and beautifully
Tho emperor arrived about the same
time in his chair, which was covered
outside and in with yellow silk, the offi
cial button on top being gold instead of
silver and the ends of the bearing poles
being elaborately carved and capped
with gilded dragons. The dean of the
diplomatio corps, escorted by members
of the foreign office, was conducted into
tho hall, the sides of the approach to tho
steps, the steps themselves and the ter
race being crowded with eunuchs em
ployed in the palace and civil and mil
itary officers whoso rank did not entitle
them to enter the prescuce of the cm
Ieror. Each member of the diplomatic
corps was given a separato audience by
tuo emperor, who was seated upon a
marblo throne. As they crossed the
threshold they bowed, advanced three
or four paces and bowed again, then ad
vanced to a point between the two dragon
pillars, where a third stop and bow
were made. There a foreign carpet cov
ered tho floor of the platform, which
was about three feet high.
Tho embassadors and ministers stop
ped about 12 feet from the emperor,
where they raado their speeches, which
were translated by an interpreter into
Chuieso. They then advanced and hand
ed letters of credence to Prince Cliing,
who had been standing on tho left of
tho emperor. Taking tho papers, ho
ascended tho steps, approached the tablo
in front of the emperor nnd laid them
upon it, not kneeling until he had de
posited thein. Tho emperor replied to
the speeches in tho Mantohoo dialect aft
er the diplomatists had returned to their
places between the dragon pillars, his
remarks being translated into Chinese
by Priuco Ching, scntenco by sentence.

walking backward, with bows at throe

Prince Po, on his left Prince Ko, and
near him Priuco Ching. The room was
liui-d on either side by two rows of high
officers of the Imperial guards and
chamlxrlaiiis, many being princes and
dukes of tho imperial family. No arms
were visible except tho swords worn by
the emperor and the princes. Tho im
perial escort, bearing long red lacquered
spears, with silver points and a long
tiger tail, could bo seen just outside
the doors. They presented a picturesque
appearance. On either side of tho em
peror was a straight stem six feet high,
supporting at the top what appeared to
be painted imitations of peacock tails
spread out, tho feathers indicating rank
Lengthy inscriptions in Mantchoo were
engraved upon a marble plinth back of
the throne. Six immense incense bowls
of old cloisonne, each guarded by an
immense cloisonne dragon of great
value, were planed around tho platform,
while from the ceiling wero suspended
eight cloisonne lamps made during the
Toa-Kuang dynasty. On tho table in
front of the emperor, which was cov
ered with yellow satin, embroiden-d
with figures of dragons, was placed the
pipe of his majesty, a piece of carved
jado and gold, the handle formed by
tho body end tail of a dragon, its month

AVitliin the pink walls that surrounded
the forbidden city are several temples
and 40 or more palaces and other build
ings which are occupied as ridenc-s
by the emperor's immediate attendants
and officers of the guard. They bre all
of one story and of uniform architecture,
differing only in dimensions. Their ex
teriors are painted that peculiar white
which Europeans have never been able
to imitate and roofed with tiles of im
pnrial yellow. The Fu Hna. or East
Flower gate, is reached from the Tartar
city by passing over a marble bridg",
handsomely decorated and bearing sev
eral tablets with inscriptions that be
token long life, prosperity, happiness
and other blessings. Immediately before
the gates are the western gardens, hand
somely laid out in the highest taste and
skill in landscape architecture, and sur
rounding a lake that covers several acres.
The nearest temple is dedicated to the
great river god, and there the cnqieror
offers sacrifices to appease that disorderly
joss, who is resiionsible for the flood
which so frequently devastate the low
