The Rock Island management has
closed a contract with Ransom, the
catcher who was with Davenport ear
ly in the season, and he will probably
be in the city late today. Ransom
began the season with Selee's Chicago
National league team and is account
ed fast. He will be used as change
catcher. Frank Gorman, a shortstop,
has also been signed. Gorman has
been playing with teams through
Michigan and Itj's believed that he
will make good. He is expected this
evening. , (
Today a contract, was secured with
Loran Beatty. claimed to be one of
the best infielders in western leagues.
He fits in well at short and second

players in tht game tomorrow.

the Western league, was signed this

liock Island and Springfield played
early yesterday in order to catch a
train to this city. The players reach
ed town on the Peoria imsscnger at
9:45 and are playing this afternoon
the opening game.
There is some comfort in seeing the
other second division teams winning,
Manager Donnelly does not seek to
excuse the team for the showing made
at Springfield. "We had some bad
luck," said he today, "but we played
some very bad ball, too. Some of the
men believed they were slated to go
arid they didn't care."
There has naturally been consid
erable inquiry why it is that the play
ers from other towns in the' league
while, playing in this city generally
secure hotel accommodations. Rock
Island rightly claims having the best
hotel service in the three cities ami
the teams when playing here ought to
patronize local hostelries.
At Bloomington they refer to the
"remarkable" fielding of Decatur.
During the series at the state cap
ital it would seem from this distance
that Rock Island t-howed a tendency
to play horse rather than to play
Yesterday made it about a dozen
straight and the last beating was the
worst of the season,. the only shut-out
the team has met with.
Hunter Hill, last year shortstop for
Rock Island, has been signed by the
St. Louis American league team to
play the same position. He has been
with the Corsicana, Texas, team.
Middleton played second for Rock

brought forth prolonged applausej
He captured two diflicult flies yester
day that seemed to-be utterly impos-
sible. One was up against the. hacli
fence and if Dickey had not been
over six feet in height and jumped
about seven feet he-would never have
had the credit of tlie put out. He is
a wonder in the field. Dick

July I Data on Which Important
Acts Become Ef
fective. PASSED BY LEQISLATrJEE
Nearly all People of State
fee ted In Some Man
Some very important changes in the
laws of Illinois go into effect tomor
row, having been parsed by the recent
legislature. Among the foremost in
importance arc the groups on child
labor, compulsory education, factory
inspectors and convict labor; the
group extending the provisions of the
Torrens system of registration for
land titles; the amendments to the
pawnbrokers' act, making it obliga
tory on pawnbrokers to file daily
with the sheriff a list of articles re
ceived iu pawn and forbidding any
sales of said articles for 24 hours;
the amendments to the election laws,
permitting a trial of voting machines
at elections and creating a board to
investigate the merits of several
types of machines and select the best
for the experiment.
Oue of the most important of the
new laws is one that raises the limit
of damages collectable for death by
accident or wrongful act to $10,000.
Since 1854 the limit has been $5.O00,
and, notwithstanding the frequent at
tempts in previous legislatures to get
the limit raised or wiped out alto
gether, nothing was ever accomplish
ed in the form of amendment until
Auother new law provides for the
examination and licensing of public
accountants so that all the account
ants of Chicago and the state at large
are to be "chartered," as has been the
practice for years in many' countries
Hounty on Birth..
The bounties on births in the. state,
provided by a law of the previous
legislature, but which was inopera
tive through the failure to make any
appropriation on the matter, are re
vived and reenacted in a new law,
which command the bounties to be
paid out of the treasury of each coun
ty to the person reporting the said
birth. A similar bounty of 25 cents
is to be paid to physicians and mid
wives for each report of a death.
Reports of death are iu future to be
made direct to the state board of

irom one 10 iwo years.
A new amendment to the local im
provement acts of 1897 is considered
very important in towns outside of
Chicago. Pndcr this amendment the
power Is given to boards of local im
provement in cilies of less than 10.000
to originate absolutely anything in
the form of local improvements. For
other places a petition is required.
The effect of this law is to place all
towns within the sec-pe of the amend
ment on the same footing as Chicago
and . Cook county in the important
matter'of carrying out local improve-!
In the. matter of legal conveyances
an important new act makes legal
certain defects iu acknowledgments.
One of the very best of the new
laws is. designed to correct the' dila
tory tactics by which litigants in jus
tice courts have been inconvenienced
and harassed for years. Under the
old law it was simply impossible to
force or compel a justice of the peace
to try a case. But under the law as
it is to stand after today an outside
justice can be called upon to try the
case. In other words, if the justic
on whose docket the case hapens to
be entered is unable or unwilling to
go on with the case it can be taken
by the defendant or the complainant
to another justice and the harassing
delays, known as "conti nuances," be
eliminated from the justice shopsr
There is a new mechanics' lien law.
One. of Its principal changes or effects
is to enable a contractor whose con
tract is of the poorly drafted kind.
known as "bobtail contracts," to go
ahead with his work with just ns
much security as if his contract was
drafted by the highest paid legal tal
ent in the land.
Life of Mortcace Kednced.
Under an important new provision
of the law the life of a chattel mort
gage is made three years instead of
two, but- the time for which a chat
tel mortgage may be extended is mad-e
one year instead of the two years
An important new law confers on
telephone companies the same rights
of eminent domain enjoyed for some
time by telegraph companies in Illi
nois.. This means that there will no
longer be any necessity for telephone
companies doing business in this state
to get local franchises from municipal
or county officials; that they can pro
ceed under the condemnation Jaws,
take possession of a front garden at
the home of a private citizen and then
go tell him that his only remedy is
to accept whatever damages may be
allowed to him In" court proceedings

lice commissioners, to . be ' appointed

7.000 and less than 100,000, a bill pr

seniority" in service and competitive
examination; prohibits removals or,
discharges except upon written charg

law is to be enforced only in such cit

Under a "new law the. time Jimit-for
contesting wills is reduced from two
years to one, ,
la favor of Colored Man.
It is an interesting fact that the
hardships vf the "colored brother"
almost invariably engage the atten
tion of the lawmakers in the several
state assemblies of Illinois. In the
past the state legislators have pass
ed' laws giving to the colored people
the full and equal enjoyment cf all
rights granted to others at hotels and
restaurants. This time the legisla
tors undertook to do away with dis
crimination against the colored race
in the renting of hearses and car
riages for funerals, so that the col
ored brother can now have the proper
kind u" a burial and cannot be refus
