Uecatur. Danville, and Springfield.
A 10-club Illinois baseball league is
a next season's possibility. A move
merit has been directed from here by
M. II. Sexton and L. d. fvJdy, presi-
dentand secretary respectively, of the
Kock Island club of the old Western
association. The cities composing the
proposed circuit are:
Hock Island. Kockford, Elgin, Au
rora and Joliet on the north, and
Peoria, Bloominston, Springflield, De
catur, and Danville on the south.
If the towns mentioned evince the
proper spirit it is rrobable a meeting

discuss the project, and perhaps
organize. All are considered number

matter thought that they would make
up a Zeairue that would not fade as a
snowball before old Sol, as has been
the fate of the Western association

and 47 turned in complete scores.
The course was iu perfect condi

it should have been. A stiff north
wind made accurate playing on ex

STILL ANOTHER SOLUTION.
Suggested Th.it the Warehouse be Italit
by Popular Subscription.
Another solution of the much
vexed levee warehouse problem has
been suggested, to the effect that the
building tie erected by popular sub
scription on the part of the business
people; that the house be for the use
of all boats landing at Kock Island,
all to share equally in the privileges,
and that no one be allowed to procure
a controlling interest in the property.
This would seem an easy way of set
tling the matter.
