Rock Island to Have Indoor Sport
FIVE CITIES IN ORGANIZATION
Professional Players to be Engaged
the Season to Open
A polo league, the first of its kind
in the west, has had its beginning,
and will soon be under way to furnish
the newest form of . winter sport
in this section. It is to be known as
the National Holier Polo league and
is to be composed of the cities of
Rock Island. Davenport, Peoria, Au
rora and Ottawa. M. .1. Kittrick, who
will manage the Aurora team, and.W.
A. Parsons, manager of the Peoria
team, were here yesterday perfecting
arrangements for the opening of the
season, the first game to take place
at Davenport Nov. 20 between that
city and Aurora. An effort is to be
made to have M. II. Sextcn manage
the IJock Island team.
The players w ill,' of course, be pro
fessionals, and will be chosen by the
managers with the same- ideas as in
baseball teams. In fact, the league
scheme tallies very closely with that
of baseball, except in the schedule.
There being " very few professional
polo players in the west, the majority
of those to be used in the league will
be imported from the eastern leagues,
where the game is one of the most
important of winter diversions.
A schedule has been prepared w hioh
gives to each of the five cities of the
league an equal number of games
throughout the season, which will
continue until the hascnall season
opens. Two games will be played in
each citv everv week. -
Polo is an entirely new game in the
west and will no doubt require some
time before it meets with favor. The
leagues of the cast, where the game
is now being played at the height of
its season, have furnished the best
players, and these are gradually com
ing to the west, here to be- identified
with the upbuilding of the game. Two
of the men who will manage the teams
in the league formed of the cities
above mentioned are men who have
had experience in the management of
the eastern teams and will no doubt
bring the venture to a successful end.
The National league is one which fol
lows the Indiana league in formation,
the latter organization having been
perfected during the past season.
Old Rivalry Alar be Renewed.
The beginning of the season will in
all probability bring back the old ri
valry letveen Rock Island and Daven
port' Sri athletic matters, which was
so prevalent during the baseball sea
son, as both cities have teams in the
league. Whet her M r. Sexton w ill enter
into the management of the Rock Isl
and team is not known, but it is
thought probbble, as he is an enthusi
asts m the sport.
A meeting-of the board of directors
will be called before the opening game
of the season to decide upon a num
ber of minor details and arrange for
the hiring of players, etc. . This meet
ing will perhaps be held at Peoria.
For the education of those who are
unfamiliar with the game, it may be
a winter sport played on the ice.
There are five men to a side and the
object of the other team is to place the
ball over in the opponent's territory.
BURLINGTON BRIDGE AT

The IUirlingtoti railroad bridge at

of lowland just outside the station,.
Trains operated on the Illinois side
were sent via Zcaring until 10 o'clock
this morning, when a temporary
structure had been erected.

Debt a Menace.
The debt of the Athletic association
's not diminishing and there is serious
danger that the high school will play
no basketball this winter and uo no
track work in the spring. This is
condition desired by no student. High
school work, would become a drag
without athletics to enliven it. The
constant strain of study and routine
becomes stale and flat without some
thing to relieve it. Usually the lift
f the student is completely bounded
by the four walls of the high schoo
building, anil take athletics away the

it lias hcen suggested by a senior
that an entertainment be given by
the school, a short play supplemented
by readings and musical numbers, to
assist the fund. This would be an ex
cellent plan. There would be almost
no expense attached and a good crowd
would undoubtedly attend.
Rockford Star: Rockford will be
well represented on the Greenville
team of the Cotton States league next
season. Three of the local players
have signed contracts .with (Jreenville
and expect to make good when the
call for play ball is again abroad in
the land. The men are Coonie Dure
mus. pitcher; Ed Connors, catcher
and Henry Miller, shortstop. Ioreinus
is one of the best known of the local
players. For years he was the main
stay of the nifles and for two seasons
has been twirling in the south. Last
season with Mayfield in the K. I. T.
league he won 20 out of 22 games.
Connors is a good backstop, a fine
thrower and a fair batter. Miller is
a clever shortstop, one of the best the
city has produced in recent years.
