BASE BALL TALK
All Towns Getting in Line for

All towns expecting to have a
place in the Westers Base Bll .
ciation next season are on the hustle.
And Rock Island, while it has been
heard from, should not allow inter
est to lag or we will be left oat in
the cold, such as was onr lot a
con pie of dozen moons back.
And then a scheme evidently
hatched in Hawkeyedom is being
agitated to leave Illinois ont of the
Western association circuit next
year. While such talk is idle and
absurd, it is no more than dne the
cities of this state, which have con
tributed so largely to the support
and success of the Western associa
tion in the past, to resent this bare
faced proposition. Iowa has the
sorehead, 'an attack of which was
superinduced by being compelled to
put np a forfeit before being ad
mitted to membership in the West
ern association. Now three towns
of Hawkeyedom imagine they have
a moitgage on the association
and want to sidetrack every town on
the other side of the b g river and
ran things to their own liking.
The Iowa idea is to have the asso
ciation composed thnsly: Cedar
Rapids, Des Moines, Dubuque and
Burlington in the east, ana Sioux
City. Omaha, Lincoln and St. Joseph
in the west. Das Moines seems al
most sure of a Dlace in tha U.atnrr,
league, however, in which case the
idea is to take Ottnmwa into the
Expraaaa Too Great.
The Iowa folk make the charge
that the railroad expenses to reach
Rock Island. Peoria. Rockford and
Quincy are too great. If such a deal
aitnongn it is idle to think of
SUCh a thin? cues thrnnirh it
has been suggested that a state
league composed of Rick Isl
and. Bloomington. Peoria, Rockford,
Joliet and Springfield be formed.
Not much. Let's hold on to tbe
Western association, which the Illi
nois towns have helped keep on its
feet too long to submit to being
kicked out. especially through the
influence of those Hawkeye burrs.
All agree that next season will be
the most successful in the history of
base ball; so let's all get to talking
it over and prepare to do our part
toward maintaining a first class team

And in the same spiteful spirit The
