LEAGUE STRONG ONE
Substantial Business Men Behind
Clubs of New Baseball
A SHOST SEASON DECIDED ON
All Rules to Be Strictly Enforced
-Outlook Promises a
In the Three-Eyed league formed
yesterday at Peoria and composed of
eight substantial cities in the states of
Illinois, Iowa and Indiana, what is
without reservation conceded to be
the strongest minor baseball organ
ization in years was launched.
As told in a special dispatch to
The Augl'3 yesterday, the circuit is
made up of Rock Island, Peoria, Rock
ford, Bloomington and Decatur, 111.1;
Davenport and Cedar Rapids, Iowa,
and Terre Haute, Ind. All are en
thusiastic over the game and the ma
jority of them have already in bank
the f unds necessary to start a team.
As an illustration of the improved
conditions in baseball matters this
year, and one. the significance of
which every admirer of the game will
readily understand, it is but neces
sary to point to the fact that at the
Peoria meeting five towns Quincy,
Ottumwa, Lincoln. Sioux City and
Evansville were denied franchises.
In former years the ditliculty was
inability to secure enough towns to
make up a circuit. The promoters
were obliged to go on their knees
almost to secure acceptances of
The Peoria gathering was both
harmonious and businesslike. The
men in attendance were there to take
definite action and the proceedings
were dispatched without an un pleas
antry something unusual for a base
ball meeting and with apparent sat
isfaction to all who participated.
Those present were: M. II. Sexton.

'first formal ballot resulted ia the
choice of those given above, each
city represented being entitled
to one vote. Three names for the
j league were suggested, Tri-State,
Central ana .three-Eye. The latter
proved the unanimous choice.
Three Candidates for Presidency.
For the presldeney M. H. Sexton,
Rock Island; M. D.' Hurley, Peoria,
and Frand Landers, Rockford, were
laced in nomination. The first bal
ot showed: Sexton, six votes, and the
other candidates one each, whereupon
the Rock Islander was unanimously
elected. He made a neat speech re
turning his sincere thanks for the
honor bestowed and the confidence
manifested in him. The presidency
carries with it the duties of secretary
and treasurer and he shall receive a
salary of $700 a year. II. U. Miller,
of Decatar, was chosen for the vice
presidency. The committees are:
Schedule Hill, Hurley and Nicol.

The gate receipts, exclusive of the
grand stand admissions, are to be di
vided equally. 50 and 50, abandoning
the plan heretofore followed of guar
anteeing: the visiting club $40 a game.
Holiday receipts are to be pooled and
divided equally, ine players' salary
limit was fixed at $900 per month and
the league dues $100 per month for
each club. Umpires are to receive

Ech association is also to post by
March 1 f zoo, to be forfeited to the
president of the league in the event
of the failure of any club to play out
the season, arrearages in does, etc.,
also to be taken from this guarantee
at the discretion of the president.
Short Playing? Season.
The season is to open Tuesday May
7, probably in tne southern division.
and close at a date to be fixed by the
schedule committee. A shorter sea
son than usual was favored. It was
agreed that not more than 110 games
do in each town be played, the sea
son consuming about four months.
An ironclad agreement, to be draft
ed in legal form, is to be entered into
by the eight associations, pledging
themselves under penaltv in accord
ance with the provisions of the consti
tution, to fulfill every requirement of
the league, the president of which is
authorized to strictly enforce all
rules and laws. The president is to
furnish a $2,500 bond for the faithful
performance of his duties.
A board of eight directors is to be
appointed, each local association hav
ing the say as to who snail represent
it on the board, reporting the mem
bers as they are elected to the presi
dent. An Aosplcloaa Beginning;.

auspicious beginning judging from
the expressions heard among the base
ball men in regard to the outlook for
the approaching season. Such confi
deace assuredly means a good year
for the national game, for the people
who are giving tbeir time and money
to the league did not forgot to care
fully gauge the situation before they
put their shoulders to the wheel.
Some Stray Notes.
Among the familiar faces seen in
the corridors of the Hotel Fey, where
the meeting was held, were those of
Patsey Flaherty, who came up from
St. Louis to see what was doing; Bill
Kreis. of Chillicothe, 111 . who will
probably bo manager of the Terre
Haute team, and Harry Bey and Davy
Seisler, of Peoria.
The subscribers to the Rock Island
ball club will meet at an early date
and effect an organization, and as soon
aspos-ible select a capable manager.
Tim O'Rourke is favored for the posi
tion. It is the intention to put into
Rock Island a team that will not take
dust from any bunch in the league.
Belden Hill had a letter from Ted
Sullivan, who said ne would in a
pinch accept a franchise in' the new
league, led was not msuitea.
John S. Ray, of Muncio, Ind., has
applied for the management of the
rock island team.
Harry Bey may be a member of the
local team this season.
Belden Hill has announced that he
no longer cares to manage the - Cedar
Rapids team, having business inter
ests in- that city that demand his
whole time, but the people there say
they will not have any one else at the
head of tbeir club, so it looks use
Belden would again be in the harness.

Disposition to Take Advantage of

The month of January has broken
all records in the number of. runs
made by the city ambulance. Up to
today 69 calls had been answered, or
almost twice as many as during any
This cannot be taken as an indica
tion that a corresponding amount of
sickness prevails, but rather that peo
ple are beginning to find out what a
handy vehicle the ambulance is; also
that its services are free.
There has been some disposition to
take advantage of the latter fact, as
in the case of one family.

The daughter was taken to a hospi
tal to have an operation performed,
and the next day there came a second
call to the same place. When it was
answered it was found that the moth

Her wish was gratified, but she re

STATE MAY YET HAVE
THREE FEDERAL COURTS
The demise of Judge Allen, of the
federal court in Springfield, raises
the question of appointments to the
United States bench. At the same
lime the whole matter of judicial ap
portionment has been broached once
more in congressional circles in
Washington. This issue has pro
ceeded so far that Congressman
Rodenburg has introduced n bill in
the house which provides for three
judicial districts in the state. They
are described as southern, central
and northern districts, Rock Island
county being placed in the northern
division with Will, Kendall, Grundy,
LaSille. Bureau. Henry. Mercer, Ford,
McDonough, Fulton, Taze well. Peoria

some time ago, and which "died

the counties, and tne division of
spoils caused a split at once. Several
cities - wanted to be court centers.
Others had candidates for judges, and
it was found impossible to reconcile
the conflicting interests. How Rep

remains to be determined.
Dog: With Gold Teeth.
It is not every dog that has gold
filled teeth, but there is a bull pup of
aristocratic breed in Moline which,
when he smiles at you, now shows
two conspicuous gold orowncd ia
cisors. The dog, which is the property
of John D. Cady, submitted to the
operation at the" office of a Moline
dentist, and it is said he behaved ouite
heroically, the operation being a cjeq
pleto success. The dog bad chewed
on bones, sticks and ether bard com
modities until his fangs were worn
down quite smooth, placing him at
a keen disadvantage in that when he
