H0LLAND HAS IT
Peoria's Application for Three
Eye League in His
IN BECOBDS RECEIVED HERE
Purpose to be Served By
Denials of the Facta In
There have been so many denials
and affirmations of the storj', printed
originally in this paper, that l'eoria
had made application for a franchise
in the Three-Eye league, that The Ar
gus feels, in justice to itself and pa
pers that arc apparently groping in
the dark on the question, that it
should lie more explicit.
The facts in the case are that Pe
oria made its wishes known to XI. II.
Sexton before lie- relinquished the
presidency of the league to Ed Hol
land, of Hloomington. and w hen ' the
latter gentleman visited Rock Island
wetinesuav ot last weeK lor the pur
pose of taking charge of the records
and formally assuming1 the duties of
the office the application from the dis
tillery city was placed in his hands.
What object Xlr. Holland sees in re
futing the report that l'eoria wants
n -place in the league passes under
standing. In the face of his denial he
has gone to l'eoria and conferred
witn tne parties at tne neim in base
ball matters in that city.
Is J'oor Policy.
If he has started out with the in
tention of attempting to make fool
ishness with the newspapers of the
circuit he may discover earlier than
he now imagines that he is dallying
with a pretty warm proposition.- The
newspapers have a duty to perform
in chronicling information concerning
baseball as in all other public ques
tions, and they haf a right to expect
from Mr. Holland, as executive officer
of the league, to receive the news
The fact that l'eoria has applied
does not mean necessarily that some
other town is to be side-tracked al
though it would be the part of wis
dom to take such a step, considering
the advantageous location of l'eoria
and the further fact that it is u larger
and better baseball town than any
now in the circuit. The desirability
of making Peoria a member will be
more forcing' appreciated when the
time comes for drawing up the sched
ule. Getting Ready For Coroluc Season,
Speaking of the arrangements that
are contemplated by President Hol
land, of the Three-Eye .league for the
comiiitf- season the IJloomiiigton ll'ul
"It is likely that a suite of rooms
in the Unity building will lie engaged
for headquarters of the league. Ne
gotiations are now in progress. These
rooms will be open to the baseball
public and the fans will be welcome
at all times when the apartments v ill
be occupied by one or both of the of
ficers. The score board which con
tains the standing and which is cor
rected daily, during the season, will
be hung on the walls and other league
property will be kept there. The desk
and records of the league have arrived
and will be placed in the rooms with
"President Holland will have, the en
thusiastic cooperation of every patro-
of the game here and elsewhere in
the league and his administration will
no doubt be a great success. Among

other things calculated to please the
various managements and suporters
of the game in the eight cities cf the
league is the 'publication of the play
ers' averages by months. He pro
poses to issue a bulletin as soon af
ter the first of each month during the
playing season, as the scores come in,
showing the records of each player
for the games played to date. When
the season ends, it will require but a
few days to figure np the averages for
the entire five months instead of
waiting for two months as was the
case this year. Other improvements
are contemplated which will be cal
culated to make the administration
of Mr. Holland popular and success
ful." Diamond DnBt.
Springfield is after Harry Meek,
last year's heavy hitting first base
man and catcher with the red sox,
and a popular favorite among the
Ilockford fans. Meek is now holding
down a good job in a Springfield bowl
ing alley, and the Springfield fans
like him. Xleek belongs to Koekford,
however, and will in all probability
play there next season. He led the
team in hitting this season.
Ceorge Xf. Kced, who managed the
IUoomington team three years ago,
has written to one of the Decatur
directors that he is thinking of com
ing back f the Three-Eye league, pos
sibly to manage one of the teams.

Louis Lippert led the Three-Eye
league in stolen bases this season, as
last. Uut Louie, through his own
misbehavior, didn't play the full sea

WOMEN OF KANSAS ABE
BOOMING THEIR STATE
Out of the Kansas Equal Suffrage
association has grown a Kansas Wo
man s bazar association, and for its
initiative work it will hold a bazar
and exhibit in Chicago from Nov. 13
The car bearing the exhibit passed
through this city over the IJoek Isl
and road yesterday. The ladies of the
association throughout Kansas have
furnished large quantities of fancy
work and other articles that go to
make up an exhibit such as any state
might be proud of.
The purpose of the exhibit is to ad
vertise the Sunflower state, which
tne innaiutants tnereor leel lias been
more maligned and misrepresented
man any otner state in the union,
the people of the east having the im
pression generally that grasshoppers
are the chief product of that sec tion.
Twenty counties are represented in
tne exniint. Men is given space u
on which is to be built a booth in
which are displayed cards with the
crops of the county. The principal
products displayed are wheat, oats, al
falfa, kaftir corn and barley. There are
also apples from Gov. Hailey's farm,
showing the fruit productiveness of
the first district. The candy Ixioth
will doubtless prove a special attrac
tion. The candy is made by Kansas
women from beet sugar furnished by
Kearney county. The exhibit will be
in charge of 20 ladies, and will be di
played at the Great Xortherir hotel,

WILLGET NEW ROAD
Good Evidence That the North'
western Will Enter
BAqXING I. & I. ENTERPEISE
Roadway Between Davenport and
Clinton Made for a Stand
There is an impression that the
Northwestern is behind the projected
intcrnrban line between Davenport
and Clinton, and that within a year
trains of that system will be running
into the three cities. The I. & I. in
tcrnrban company is but a myth, ac
cording to the informatii n at hand,
employed until such time as the
Northwestern is prepared to come
out from under cover.
The Northwestern has. for years had
its eyes on thi locality, and would
have bought in the Davenport, Kock
Island & Northwestern line, which has
since been acquired jointly by the Mil
waukee and Ibirlington systems, had
not the price been put too high by
the Gates combination, which backed
the building of th road and the Cres
May Una HrllK.
The ordinance by which permission
was secured for the construction of
the line in this city and Davenport
and the approaches to the bridge
reaTl that any ottier line that may
in future desire entrance to the cities
they will have the right by paying
proportionate cost of the construction
of said line and bridge.
The road bed that is being built be
fween Davenport and Clinton is of
the heaviest character, such as is used
fosupport standard 1 rains. It is not the
kind of bed that is used by interur
bans in any part of the country. This,
with other things that have transpired
in the past few weeks, has led to the
belief that the Northwestern is soon
to realize its fondly cherished dream
of competing directly for tri-eity
business. The road w ill be welcome.
WINTER LODGERS RETURN
Cold Weather Driving Bums into the Hotel
Now that cold weather is here
the regular crowds of nightly
lodgers at the police station are wan
dering in and applying for a place to
rest their weary bones, where they
will be protected from the wintry
blasts which sweep the streets and
alleys. Some of these have no other
places to hang their hats, but many
are traveling through the country and'
use this means of saving what little
money they have for fond, and trans
portation, whenever they happen to
feel like paying for it.
The old hands know just what to
expect, but some .f the green ones
are very amusing. As soon as one
steps inside the station he is spotted
He comes in with a frightened air;
walks into the sergeant's office as
though he were ready to drop, and
mumbles something in' an unintelli
Then the sergeant turns on him
He knows just what is coming, so
summoning his sternest; voice, he
demands his business. Finally after
a great deal ot stammering on the
part of the poor unfortunate, the
sergeant manages to worry the truth
out of him, that he is in need of shel
ter and would like to stay at the
station over night.
"All right," says the sergeant after
a little more questioning, in which he
finds out all he can about the man,
"come with me:" and he takes him
back to one of1 the cells where prison
ers are held, and locks him up the
same as any ordinary criminal.
"Where is the bed?" asks the green
one, as he looks around and sees noth
ing but some boards raised a little
from the floor. The place is not real
ly to his liking, but it is too late to
back down; he has made his bed and
must lie on it, only the bed he made
has no covers and may have any num
ber of inhabitants before morning.
Some never return after this first
experience, but others find it not. so
bad after all, and manage to find their
way to the station night after night,
and eventually seem to enjoy it.
Such an odor as arises from the
cells where the ordinary vags are kept
that it seems incredible anyone would
care to come into such a place from
the fresh air, no matter how cold,
but on cold nights in the middle of
winter every inch of available space is
often taken, and with the .drunks,
who get merry during the "holidays,
and the vags who are taken in for pre
caution about that time, there is lit
tle sleep to be had at the station.
