fans were all there and Rock Island
and Bloomington went at it yesterday
tuned up to concert pitch. With Mc
Greevy in the box, the visitors felt
that it was now or never and the
home team wanted the scalp of Bloom

tensity of the desire to win the locals
overreached themselves. Rock Is

although each allowed 11 hits. Mc
Greevy was found for several hard
drives, while Bleomington's safe ones
were for the most part slow hits well
placed. The two pitchers broke even

giving one. but Mcreevy had six
strikaouts, while Milton bad but
four. Arthur s home run over the

locals in the fifth, was the feature of
A Battle Royal.
The fray led off furiously from the
start with the fielding advantage in
Bloomington' favor. The latter bad
piled up five runs in the fifth and the
odds were about 10 to 1 In favor of
the visitors. Then after Owens and
Middleton were out on flies Arthur
picked out a straight one and con
nected with it for what was probably
the longest hit Inat nat gone over the

after getting two good ones he put
one over the outfield whete it brought

himself. Rothermel knocked a popup
back of third which nobody succeeded
in getting under and another score

a chance for a double by dropping the

This time it stuck, Rothermel made

No particular member of tho heme
team was responsible for the Iocs of
yesterday's game, silly reports to tho
contrary notwithstanding. As a
.iter of fact every player on the
inlield had a hand in tho error coi
umn, and those who made the least
misplays made the most costly. The
man who is charged with the greatest
number redeemed himself for two of
them both inexcusable at that in
the inniog in which they were made
by retiring the side without runs for
tne visitors. It is not fair to permit
personal prejudice tp operate against
any player at every stage of the game.
The Altai's has no favorites on the
club, and it has no grudge against
any of them. Neither Is it any mat
tor of the least concern to it who is

players aliko as the caso may have

The Central Union Telephone com
pany has placed three propositions
before the rural line owners desiring
direct connection with the cities of
Rock Island and Moline which ap
parently solve the question that has
been especially vexing tbe community
south of this city.
The new offers held out form a de
cided concession on the part of tbe
company, and have been secured
through the efforts of Manager W. B.
Roberts, in charge of the lines in Rock
Island and Moline.
The first proposition is for direct
connect! n with the company's lines
on the part of the rural lines, without
reg-rd to the kind of instrument
used, for the toll rate which now pre
vails from tbe place where connection
is made.. This will enable lines en
tering Milan, Andalusia, Carbon Cliff,
East Moline and Watertown to make
connection with the twin-cities for 5
cents, and from more distant points
for a higher rate, according to tb
distance. The role in regard to rat
fixes 5 cents for a distance of 5 miles
10 cents for 10 miles and 15 cents for
up to 20 miles- Andalusia has a spe
The above proposition does away
with the stipulation that the B-ll
transmitter must be used by in
dependent subscribers and in its
pla-e makes the single requirement
that country lines now using Bell in
struments shall be allowed free con
nection with other independent lines.
Owing to the feeling tbat has pre
vailed there ba9 ben no exchange of
tbe kind in this vicinity heretofore.
Bam M City Tarty L-loea.
Another proposition made by the
company is for the installation of
rursl lines with metallic circuits with
au average of three subscribers to tho
milo for a rental of $1 per month from
eai'h subscriber. This is the same as
tl e party line tervice given in the
city, only cheaper. Under this ar
rangement it is proposed to allow free
exchange between different country
lines, but to charge the enstomary 5
cent toll to the cities of Rock Itlsnd
Tbe third proposition is made in
connection with the second and offers
free exchange to the twin-cities to
Bach of the subscribers as are willing
to pay 50 cents a month extra. In
other words, for (1.50 a month the
subscriber may talk to others on his
own line and all connecting lines as
well as to the cities without addi

Although none have done so as yet,
it is probably due to the fact that
farmers are too busy to make the nec

at the switches. At Milan, wbero the

that has developed between tbe Bell
