BALL TEAM PICKED
Manager Frank Donnelly An
nounces Players for Next
THREE OF OLD CLUB ABE RETAINED
Milton, Hopkins and Middleton
Cominj? Meeting of Ijcaguc
Frank Donnelly, Hock Island's base
ball manager for the season of 1902,
readied the eity Saturday evening on
his first visit in his official capacity.
Ilefnre he left for home this after
noon he made public the names of
i hunch f 13 men who will don this
city's uniforms at the opening of the
I'hree I league season.
Manager lonnelly looks the hall
ilayer. He is built for an athlete,
rather short of stature, but supple
iml with nn open eountenanee anil a
turn of the chin that mark him as a
rair-min;led man, but one who will
not hesitate to eall another's bluff.
In short, he npenrs to le the sort of
nan the grand stand will look upon
with favor nnd the bleachers will
tand by through thick and thin.
-The memlers of the loeal associa
tion arranged a meeting with Mana
ger Donnellev yesterdav nnd the sit
uation was pretty thoroughly can-,
vassed. The failures of last year
were revamed and it was shown
where n different line of Mliey this
vear may 1 exected to brinj; about
better results. The team that has
'jeen sigiiel was' gone over and indi
vidually discussed and it was decided.
since the list is practically complete.
to give the names to the pnblic.
Men That Arc Signed.
First base will be held down by
Ked" Wright, who played last year
with Little Kock, and who has an ex
ertional record both as a fielder and
a hatter. On second will be
either Kd Miilllleton or William
Voting, who played two years ago
with Springfield, but was not .in the
game last vear. Hunter Hill, a
Shreveport, T.a., boy. has been signed
for short. He made an excellent
showing last year. On third will be
l'im O'lJotirke, whose signing was an
nounced some time ago and who.
from his connection with the team
of !'.. needs, no introduction to Kock
A contract was closed today with
Lee Hopkins, the center fielder, who
has been employed in the city siice
the end of last season. He will play
one of the gardens. Miltoon,
Hopkins and Midulelon are the
only members of the aid team
retained. The other outfielders who
vill be tried out are Kd Painter, who
p4yed with Lafeyette, Col., last- sea
son in a minor league, nnd Charles
Veager, another young" man. who
wore a Keokuk uniform last year
Manager Donnelly himself, of course,
will play regularly in the field. Frank
Heidler, of St. l,ouis. will 1m given a
try-out as an infielder. He is reputed
to be a youngster of considerable
William and Conwell Catcher.
Two catchers are on the list. Dal
Williams, who played in the Western
association with Iturlington the
season of-"97 and was reputed the
best in his position in the league, is
one, and Charles Conwell, a last year
Des Moines man. the other. There are
four pitchers. In addition to Milton
there is Ed Smith, who played during
the early part of the season with
Kock Island last year and' after
wards became . umpire, Charles .Case,
who was tried last season by the Xn
tional league team and finished with
Matthews, Ind., and John Thomp
son, a south paw, who played during
last year with the Matthews team.
Among those who are still being ne
gotiated with may be mentioned Os
car Graham, the left-handed pitcher
who finished last season with Kock
Island. He is at present under con
tract with Omaha. A few others of
the Kock Island players of hist year
would 'have been signed if suitable
terms coidd have been made with
In picking his men Manager Don
nelly has,had the advantage at a very
wide acquaintance among players
and he has chosen those in whom lie
has confidence. Most of them he Is
lersonally acquainted with and the
others he knows well by reputation
He has had especial regard for men
of good habits and states that he will
enforce rules of temperance and
proper living among his youngsters
The et Leaame Meeting Her.
The next meeting of the Three I
league management will probably be
held in Rock Island some time near
the first of February. Illoomington
wants the meeting badly, but it Is
"probable that President Sexton will
keep it for his own town. The meet
ing will discuss the most important
questions of the year. It Is the last
meeting of the officers before the sea
son opens. Therefore the schedule
if games must be decided on. The
forfeits of the teams of $250 each
will have to be put up, the ball to be
used for next season will have to be
chosen, the president for the coming
year will be elected, and the present
official will doubtless make his re
port as to the umpires for next sea
son's games. -
The schedule for the season is fur
nishing matter for considerable dis
cussion. Last year the plan Was to
play 112 games in 130 days. This year
it is proposed to play 126 games in
133 days. ; This would necessitate the
playing of two games on holidays and
then leave 10 days open. There is
also a plan on foot for including 20
Sundays instead of 10.

M. R. McKinley's Thrilling Ex
periSnce in the Baltimore
& Ohio Wreck.
KEEPS WASHINGTON ENGAGEMENT
Good Prospects for Appointment as
Xicaraguan Canal Com
missioner. M. K. McKinley returned yesterday
from his trip to Washington, none the
worse for his thrilling experience in
the IJ. & O. wreck, with the exception
of a few minor scratches and bruises
and a wrenched knee. He was in the
smoking car when the accident hap
pened and out of a total of 17 occu
pants he and a colored man were the
only ones who were able to continue
on their journey after they had pick
ed themselves ont of the debris. Two
wer killed. The others all went to
a hospital. The smoking car was al
most entirely unroofed, falling on its
side and scraping against the rocks,
and the passengers were piled up
against the front end.
The accident, as is generally known.
was caused by the engineer losing
control of his machine and the sjced i
attained becoming too great for the
train to keep the track on the sharp
curves in the mountains through
which it was passing. When the train
left the rails it was on the inside of
t bend in the mountain and was
thrown against the bank. If it had
kept, the rails till the next bend it
would have gone over into the river.
Just a short time before the crash
Mr. McKinley had given his i-eat in
the observation car to a lady and
taken a place in the smoker. The ob
servation car was not nearly so bad
ly wrecked and none of the occupants
was more than slightly injured.
Want ft Canal Columlsshmershlp.
Over his interview with President
Roosevelt Mr. McKinley is well pleas
ed. He was accompanied to the
White House by Senator Mason and
Congressman Prince, and the presi
dent received him with the utmost
cordiality. When it was made known
to the chief executive that his visitor
desired a xsition as commissioner on
the proposed Nicaragua canal he ap-jH-areil
pleased. It was the first ap
plication for a place as commissioner
he had received, and the president,
while following his invariable rule f f
making no definite promise in the
matter of appointments, assured Mr.
McKinley that it would receive his
early and favorable consideration. He
even went so far as to give reasons
why he desired Mr. McKinley to have
the place, chjef among them being
the fact i that the late president was
an earnest champion of the canal
project and he felt it to be fitting that
a McKinley should have a hand in
"carrying the idea to a completion.
McKlnney to Raild
Dr. P. L. McKinnie. formerly of Mo
line. will build n big apartment house
on Ilinman r. venue and (ireenleaf
street in Evatiston after plans by My
ron Hunt. The building will be three
stories high, of pressed brick and
stone, containing twenty-four suites,
and will cost $75,000.
Steel Mill Hpniuen.
The 12-inch mill at the Sylvan steel
works was put in operation today
with a full force of men. The mill
has been shut down for several weeks
but now it is started up and Tues
day it is likely it will begin running
twelve hours a day. The prospects
are good for a busy season and there
is hope that there will be sufficient
work to keep the mill busy all year.
For the present a night shift will not
be put on.
DATE OF LOVE FEAST

publican love feast in Rock Island
