THE ARQUSi'IOKDAY, MARCH 2, 1903.
IS WELL PLANNED
Three-Eye Le?gue Schedule
Presents Many Commend
FEW CONFLICTING DATES HERE
Rock Island and Davenport Oct Two
Holidays and Six Sundays
The schedule of games for the
Three-Eye league herewith presented
is the one drafted by President Sex
ton and approved practically without
change at the meeting of the direc
tors of the organization at the meet
ing in Joliet last Tuesday. It was
of the eight cities, together with the
requirement that there are to be an
equal number of holiday and Sunday
games in each city, makes the sched
ule a puzzling undertaking.
The greatest difficulty is arranging
for the jump to Wheeling. Dayton is
the nearest town, and it is 211 miles.
In the Indiana cities some of the dis
tances are less than 100 miles. Ander
son suit Marion can travel by trolley
line, s that railroad facilities and
connections cut little figure.
There will be 140 games, each city
having 70 on its own grounds. Some
of the schedules that will be submit
ted provide for off days; others have
continuous playing. The point which
will count most with the directors,
however, will be in the saving of mile
age. Ed Hughes, who was with Hock Isl
and for n time in VJftl and who pitch
ed several games for Davenport at
the close of last season, has been
signed for the coming season by Man-

The main features of the schedule
were made public at the time of its
adoption and were duly noted in The
Argus. It provides for the same num
ber of games as that of last season,
120, but. the season will run a few
days longer owing to'- the greater
number of open dates that have been
left. This was done to do away as
far as possible with the double-headers
that were so common last season.
Leacna Is Compact
The substitution of Joliet and Du
buque for Terre Haute and Evansville
gives a much more, compact league
and makes if possible to reduce the
mileage traveled by the teams con
siderably, the average this year being
about 2,000. It is also necessary to di
vide the league differently from the
manner of last season and Hock Isl
and is in the south half of the circuit
in company with Joliet. Deeatur and
Blooinington, instead of in the north
half as last year.
The season opens May 1 and closes
Sept. 15. Hock Island opens at Deca
tur, Joliet at Bloomington, Cedar
Kapids at Davenport, and Dubuque at
Koekford. 'May 7 the opening w;ill
take place in the other towns, with
Bloomington at Hock Island, Decatur
at Joliet, Koekford at Dubuque, and
Davenport at Cedar Bapids.
Bock Island has 10 Sundays at home
and two holidays. Memorial day and
Labor day, two games being played
on each. Davenport has 10 Sundays
at home and one holiday, July 4. The
Rock Island and Davenport teams are
pitted together for the games of July
4 and Memorial day and for six Sun
days during; the season, but it is so
arranged that they will have few
games at home at the same time and
no Sunday games.
Prls for Schedule-
Terre Haute.Mod., March 2. The
baseball fans in most of the cities of
the Central league are just now more
interested in the schedule than any
other phase of the new league's open

which is accepted at the meeting to
be held soon; The. peculiar location

WAS LIGHTEST IN YEARS
Desk Sergeant Andrew Etzel says
the month just passed has been the
dullest one in police circles of any in
several years, and Andy ought, to
know. The month was not only a
short one, but the average amount of
business each tlay was light. Accord
ing to the report of Chief Dennis Mc
Carthy there were but 23 arrests
made during the month of February,
17 being city and six state cases.
There were 10 for disorderly con
duct, five each for disturbing the
cace and being drunk, and one each
for assault and battery, carrying con
cealed weapons and as fugitive from
justice. There were 62 station lodgers
and 34 meals were furnished prison
ers. The jail bill was $6.80. Street
lights were reported out for a total
of 591 hours. There were 19 w agon
and 44 ambulance calls.
Disturbances of strikers are not
nearly as. grave as an individual dis
order of the system. Overwork, loss
of sleep, nervous tension will be fol
lowed by utter collapse unless a reli
able remedy is immediately employ
ed. There's nothing so efficient to
cure disorders of the liver or kidneys
as Electric Bitters. It's a wonderful
tonic and effective nervine and the
greatest all around medicine for. run
