BALL MET0 MEET
President Sexton Calls . League
Directors for March I at .
0ITIE3 TO PUT UP GUARANTEE
And Arrangements Made for
Opening of SeasonWeak
Towns Will be Dropped .
President M. II. Sexton today issued
a call for a meeting of the directors
of the Illinois-Iowa-Indiana Baseball
league at the Kimball house, Daven
port, at 10 a. m. Friday, March 1, for
the purpose of disposing of business
needing attention before the opening
of the season, chief among which is
the placing by the eight cities of $259
cash each as a guarantee to remain in
the league through the . playing sea
soo. Schednle suggestions will also
be received and a general review
taken of conditions over the circuit in
search of .possible weak spots.
In case any city fails of a satisfac
tory showing its franchise will be
transferred to one of the several other
cities that are clamoring for admis
sion to the league, Evansville, Ind.,
for instance, having enough money
already in bank to put in a team.
President Sexton nas heard nothing
lately from Peoria, but he regards the
silence of the promoters there as indi
cating that they have gotten a move
on themselves and will be . ready for
action at the proper time.
Slow Across tbe Klrer.
Just now Davenport appears to be
the weakest spot in the league, but
those holding the franchise there in
sist they will not fall out of line. They
are conducting a systematic canvass
for funds and are receiving all kinds
of encouragement, mostly hot air, it
is said, people who were depended
upon to come up with the coin having
turned the solicitors down. However,
there is still hope that onr sister over
the big stream will be able to make
good. President Sexton has been in
conference with the officers of the as
sociation on several different occa
sions and has done all in his power to
help them along. If they fall down
now, they have no one to blame but
their own people.
