i !o not believe in the policy of
claim'nir the pennant until the sea
son over. However. I tin believe that
1 have a Mpiad of players to report
who will make a very giod showing
during the coinin season, and 1 think
the Jiock Island directors should be
congratulated on the men they con
tracted wilh before a manager was
appointe i. I l ave looked up the rec
ords of these men and find them to
be tirst-clas- in most caes.
1 have contracted with men with
great care, and have taken into con
sideration that the people of IJock Isl
and want good clean bail, and have
got tigcther a nice gentlemanly lot
of player.-. I have al.-o tried to learn
the ('imposition of each man. so a to
keep perfect harmony aim ng all the
p'ayci-. This i a more important
es-en'ial than most managers uppreci
a t e.
At present I have accepted terms
with, or received, contracts from lil
men. (counting tho-e the directors
signed.) '1 "hi.- i- hi t counting- Ynndine,

IJock Island public probably knows
something in regard to the other
Candidate for lofieM.-
For the intiel I there are (lien An-
diews. who wa- with the Chicago
White Socks for a time, then with
Toledo, remaining with the latter un
til the end of August, when he was
loaned to Decatur to cover second in
place of lli'xy Walters, who was put
out f the game for the .eason. He is
a fast infieldi r. but did not hit as well
as he should. He joined the team at a
time when the whole lJec.ttur aggre
gation had slumped in hitting, and I
hope this may account for his poor
shewing with the stick. Lister you
Know about. Haas piav erl first base
f r Henderson. Ky and was the slar
f the league, hitting ;ils and fielding
'.''.! in s'.i games. I have accepted
teims with him. Have also accepted
tciins anl signed Frank Shields, of
Canti ii. III. He is reputed to be a
hard hitter and was highly recom
mended to me bv .lap I'oor. He thinks
Shields will be good for faster com
pany after a season in the Three-Eye
league. Hidden Hill, of Cedar IJapids.
and President Smith, of Terre Haute,
were both after him. Coy . Kebscher
and Williams are men who were sign
ed before 1 took charge of affairs.
I. 'it I think well of them till.
Miller is another man whose terms
have been accepted. He is from Keo
kuk. Iowa. I know him to l-.e very
fa-t, but have been unable to get his
contract returned to ine. After fur
ther looking into the matter 1 have
learned that he has signed to manage
Keokuk in the Iowa league. Letter
received from him And winch hindliini
to IJock Island, have been forwarded
to President H. K. Casteel. of the IJock
l-!and association, which ha- been ask
ed to protest Miller to the national
board of arbitration. His term- were
accepted bv me on She same day a.
hc made them known. That wa- the
::rd of December.
Lally Said to l Spff.lT.
For the outfield. Hugh Lai Icy is one
man who has affixed his name to a
IJock l-land contract. After looking
him up I tind him to be a first-cIa-
man and expect to make one of the
best fielders in the league. He i- very
fast, a corking hitter, tine base run
ner and knows the game from A to '..
I have accepted term- of (harnier.
an outfielder, from Keokuk. Iowa,
who was with Davenport la-t sea-oti
during t he il'iies- of e-. He played in
Ji games, hit and fielded .'.lis. I'p to
elate he ha- f .tiled to return hi- con
tract, and I am of the opinion he has
signet! with Miller, as the two are
t lo-e friend. Hoth belong- to IJock
Island, as the acceptance f term- i-ju.-t
a- binding a- a contract.
I am now hot on the trail of a left
handed pitcher, and an Id hca I to
captain the infield. If I get the men
I am after they will be of great value
to the team.
It has been flirticult to secure player-
and keep within the limit, when
high sa'arie- re lveir.g paid by Spring
field. Dubutpic and Itloomingt on. 1
will have a team very close to the
limit ju-t the same.

cured Mt n lay night by Ueurge Te-

Sexton and his colleagues spent the
day in conferences with lawyers atu!
among- themselves as to the best way
to meet the issue. President Sexton
declared the meeting- indefinitely post

ton 'and two or three franchise hold

fight the case in court on the day fid

contrels the Kansas City franchise.
but who is to manage the St. Louis
National leag-ue team, said it made no
difference whether Tebeau won or
lo-t. the Western league would go on.

Mr. Watler.-i u is in hi- r..t h year1

began early, and at the age of U'l he
was editor of ihe 1 Jeptdd iea n Kanncr
at Na.-liville. When hostilities be

telligent theatregoers as the legiti
mate successor of the late Kdwin
Forrest. In the character of Macbeth
he has aroused vast an iier.ecs to great
enthusiasm and bei n accorded a de
gree of praise by hypercritical crit
ics that :s at least unusual. "Macbeth"
is a fascinating play and is consi.lered
by many students of Shakespeare to
be the greatest tragedy of the great
tuaster of dramatic literature. It is
but seLlcin seen by theatre patrons
for the reason of the difficulty there
is in giving it adequate presentation.
It isn't an easy matter to always get
such great actors as .lohn Griffith and

road this season with every advantage.
In addition to the matchless star and

It is natural for people to doubt, but
when Druggist Thomas frankly offers

that Mi-o-na is an unusual and re
