President Sexton has addressed the

"In closing up our affairs for the
present season I deem it proper to
make a few suggestions that have
occurred to me as a result of tho past
year's experiences, and perhaps a
short review of the season's work and
some cf the elements that contrib
uted to our success would not be
amiss at this time.
"When we met in the early part of
this 3 car and formulated the plan
which bai been followed this season,
I confess that I entertained consider
ate doubt as to the wisdom of adopt
ing the percentage plan, and I have
watched its operation very closely
throughout the season, and after the
first few weeks fsund every city
taking kindly to it, and I now be
lieve that the percentage plan ii one
of tho strongest and best features of
our constitution, audi believe further
that the cities most strongly opposed
to the plan at the time of its adoption
will now be found giving It their
Affair Boo Smoothly.
"Almost throughout the entire
playing season the affairs of the
league have gone along smoothly and
without friction, requiring very little
effort or supervision on my part to
keep things moving. This, I think,
was owing to the complete confidence
and good feeling that prevailed be
tween the different club members, as
evinced by the prompt manner in
which each club met its obligations.

"While a small percentage of the
rowdy element, among ball players,
crept into the ranks in this league,

games of the season, rowdyism was
held down to tne minimum in mis

at Bloomington, an outbreak oc
curred which, while too lato for action
at my hands, nevertheless, should
not bo overlooked, and I recommend
that Buch action be taken at this
meeting as tbo case seems to morit.
I again call your attention to an
interview from w. F. Krclg, which
has gone the rounds of the press, and
I hope this meeting will not adjourn
without replying to Kreig's charges
in such a manner as you deem proper.
"I desire to recommend changes In
the constitution of a minor nature,
in several Instances, and should like
to tee the matter of tickets and
passes more distinctly set forth and a
uniform system of tickets and passes
adopted for every city In the circuit.
I think the section relating to a line
for withdrawing a team from the
field should be changed, making the
penalty lighter and payable Into the
league treasury, instead of to the
non-offending club. think it would
be wise to change the section rela

first payment would be about Apiil

Gentlemen, in closing I desire to
express my heartfelt thanks and ap
preciation for the cordial and earnest
support given me by every member
of this board. Also for all the im
plicit confidence you have
shown, and the promptness and
willingness with which you have
complied with all of my rulings and
instructions throughout the season,
and I sincerely hope that a year hence
you may all have the pleasure of
again meeting together to finish up
the business of another season as suc

ORION CHURCH FAILS
TO OBEY COUNCIL ORDERS
It is rumored that the congregation
at the Baptist church in Orion entirely
ignored the recent ruling of the
church council in regard to Rev.
White, who was deposed from the
pastorate of that church and debarred
from the ministry. The ruling was
to tho effect that he should not be
allowed to preach, but the members
should give him a letter of good
standing. This the church refused
to do. and now it is possible there will
be more trouble.

ROCK ISLAND ELEVATED
TRACKS IN DAVENPORT.
Th outlines of the plan of the
Rock I land Railway company in its
work of track elevation at Davenport
are gradually becoming visible to the
eye as the work of track elevation pro
gresses. For some months the grade
at which the road will reach the ele
vated structure has been shown by
the south wall as it ptssed the court
house block. Now' the width that
Fifth street will have is shown by the
160 feet of north wall that has been
completed west of Scott street. Two
tracks are now carrying the regula
tion traffic of the railway company
north of the wall and yet there is
room left for teaming on the street.
When both of these tracks are re
moved a wide and handsome street
will be left.
The Rock Island road will probably
begin grading for its double track on
the southwest line between Buffalo
and Muscatine next week, and also
on the main line between West Lib
erty and Iowa City. The contract
has been let to DoUn & Son, but a
great deal of the work will be done
by the Rock Island road itself. The
rain has delajed operations so that
wotk can hardly begin before the
middle of the week. The order for
the steel for the new bridges to , be
installed between Buffalo and Musca
tine has been sent in and it is ex
pected it will be on hand by the time
the giading is complete.
