TEAM IS A FACTOR
Rock Island Football Eleven
Line for all Championship
NATIONAL AS WELL AS STATE
Illinois Players Best in tbe Country
Some Other Claim
ant?. North Division's overwhelming
victory over llrooklyn hist Saturday
end Knjrlewood's defeat of Hyde I'ark
has left the question of the national
intersehola.stie championship a mat
ter of dispute, and brought out many
rival claimants for the honor, says
the Chicago IJeeord-Herald.
The game at Urooklyu tends to
prove that the west leads the east,
but as Englewood holds a tie with the
North Division boys, they naturally
want to meet their rivals cgain, and
many other western scolastic elevens
have also issued challenges to the
North Division eleven.
It is practically certain that Kugle
wood and North Division will meet
on Marshall field next Saturday to
play off their tie, so that many other
elevens ambitious to test North Di
visiou's strength will necessarily have
to wait. After Saturday's contest,
however, it is entirely possible that
the winner may be persuaded to play
some of North Division's challengers.
Among the teams which have signi
fied a desire to play North Division
are Dices academy, of Macon. Mo.;
Culver academy, of Culver, hid.; and
the high schools of Joliet
Manager 15. M. Schroyer,
ac claims the high school champion
ship of Illinois, not including Cook
county, and has issued a formal
challenge to North Division. As I'on
tiae took tirst honors at the state
high school field and track meet last
spring, it's football team undoubted
ly is a formidable one. .
Pontiae has won all of its games
excepting a tie contest with the
Northwestern academy, and on its
list of victories is a 6 to CT score over
Watseka. which beat Hyde Park
to 0. l'ontiae played Joliet and the
score stood VZ to 6 in favor of Ponti
ac. At this time, according to Mana
ger Schroyer, one of the Joliet play
ers was rilled out of the game for
kicking Captain Kvard of the Pontiae
team on the head. The Joliet players
refused to continue the game unless
the offending- player was allowed to
piny, and in consequence the officials
called the game and awarded Ihe vic
tory 1o Pontiae. . . ,
Thus the situation between Joliet.
l'ontiae and Knglewood or North Di
vision, according to the outcome of
Saturday's game, is bound to be in
something of a tangle unless further
post season contests are played.
Kock Island In the Class.
As before stated in The Argus, Kock
Island, while no challenges have been
issued, is in the championship class
this season. Juliet's showing against
Moline was not nearly as good as
Kock Island made, and this in face of
the fact that when Uock Island play
ed Moline the tri-city championship
was at stake, while there was nothing
more than the common desire to win
on the part of the Plow City team
when Joliet was met. Then, while
Kock Island clearly outclassed Moline,
Joliet had a great deal of trouble in
pulling out with a victory by one
point. Therefore it is in order to re
mark that the high school champion
ship of Illinois, and incidentally, it
seems, the national interscholastic
championshipwill not be settled till
Kock Island is reckoned with.

With the A. Z. Z. football reception
Friday night football is relegated to
the rear. The team has not yet chos
en a captain and manager for next,
year, but that will " be done before
long. With the class of 1904, the team
will lose Mosenfelder, Morrison, Sul
livan and Cozad, all valuable men, but
by the showing that some of the
subs were making at the close of this
year's work, quite as good a team will
be placed in the field next year.

The Monmouth high school football
team closed the season with a record
that appears very good on its face.
In nine games Monmouth scored 2(.)9

scores made against the team, it might
be added, were all made by Moline.
The season was wound up with a vic

.RECEIVE NEW ORDERS
An order form the internal revenue
collector at Peoria, just promulgated
among- the local gangers, is causing a
little comment. It is an indication
that the department is getting more
rigid. The word from headquarters
is to the effect that each ganger must
look after his own work. He cannot
have the storekeeper or some other
fellow as-ist him. He must stick at
it until the work is done, no mater
how long it requires.
The order is due to the tendency
of the employes to get through as
early each day as possible. In every
locality, in case of a rush, if the gan
gers can get a little help, it enables
them to complete the day's work
early. Dut next year is to be the
period of assessment ami according
to the version of one government em
ploye, the officials at the head of af
fairs are anxious to begin the inaugu
ration of strict dieipline.
