doubt that Mr. Sexton will look after
the affairs of two 'league this sea

were to hold a conference today at
which the proposition made to Mr.
Sexton was to be given final consider

A telegram was received last even
ing by President Sexton from I,. K.
I In Her, secretary of the club of
Wheeling, W. Ya.. of which Smith,
the head of Da veiiMrts team last
year, is manager. The message was
sent to inquire if fhis league offers
any opportunity for the lisisnl of
the team gathered by that city to

which has succumbed to the war
waged upon it by T. .1. Mickey, pres

The instructions to umpires pre
pared by President Sexton, of the
Three-1 league, are as follows:
(en t le men: In selecting a staff of

the ability to make a successful um
pire the ordinary "kicks" or com.
plaints, from captains or players,
will receive little consideration at
my hands, but a man proven to be
incompetent or unreliable, must not
expect to retain a position on this
I'mpiring, in my judgment, is the
most important, as well as the most
arduous position on the diamond to
fulfill, and good or bad umpiring
will do more to please or disgust the
patrons of the game than any other
The playing rates give you most un

Always remember that you are a1

progress ef a game, and have the
power to order any manager, captain
or player to do, or to omit to do,
any act that you may deem neces
sary to gite force and effect to the
rules eif the game. You are instruct
ed to enforce the rules as you find
them, without regard to your own
opinion of any particular rule.

Positively no fines must be remit

In all aggravated cases of abusive

must notify me immediately, stating
all of the facts, and the attitude of

matter of affording proer protec

All managers, captains and players
in this league will be notified by cir

the collection f all fines imposed,
and my determination to inflict addi

violations of the rules.

Roads Arranging for Protection
at First Avenue Cross
60 SAYS ME. CABLE, OF PEORIA
General Gowtdp Picked I'p at the
Depots of the
Vice President H. S. Cable, of the
Peoria road.' is authority for the
statement that the agreement- among
the three interested roads as to lhe
nature of the interlocking crossing to
deinstalled where the I'ui'liugton and
l..' Hi !.'$ N. W. tracks cross the
Peoria tracks at that point will carry
with it an arrangement for gates to
protect the public both at the Kast
Seventeenth and Kightecnth street
The peculiar conditions presented
by the nature and tingle of the
tracks render the arrangement of a
plan acceptable to all interests -a
matter of considerable difficulty. One'
:i rrangment has be-en submitted and
rejected and another is now under
consideration. Mr. Cable stated pos
itively that the watch man on duty at
ICast sSccntceiitli street had been
placed' there only as a temporary ex
iedicnt. ltork lalund'n New T!nittallc.
The new timetable that goes into
e'ffect on the Hock Island tomorrow
is generally thought to be the best,
especially so far as Chicago service
is concerned, that the road has ever
had. There will be eight trains to
and from Chicago daily except Sun
day, an. I the number of Sunday trains
will be the same as in the past. The
two new trains that will go on will
be Xos. 2i) and ::o and will carry
through sleepers, tourist and Pull
man cars and dining car service f rom
Chicago to San Francisco via the new
southwest divisions. Xo. DU going
east will leave this city at t p. m..
arriving in Chicago at 10:10. Xo. t'O
returning will leave- Chicago at S:1U
a. in., arriving in Hock Island at l-rO
p. m. The first nnmed train will carry
dining car service and one can board
the train here after business hours,
take supper on the road and arrive
in Chicago at bedtime. This will un
doubtedly have the effect of replacing
the patronage of the special sleeper
from the tri-cilie-s to Chicago till it
will be found advisable to do away
with the service and tleend upon the
sleeper regularly brought in from the
southwest ami going east at mid
night. For the present, however, the
special sleeper will he kept.
There will be several minor edianges
in time, made necessary by the addi
tion of the new trains. One of the
most iniMrtant will be that of Xo.
14. which has been elue here' from
Omaha at C:40 p. in. Hereafter it will
arrive at .:-(.', or in lime to meet with
Xo. ::u. and its run will terminate
here. The new trains will be daily
