Ben Siiniinton. who ofiiciated in the

onton's home is in L'rbana, O. lie was
held in reserve by the Grand Bapids
team, but has given notice that he will
not report. He will however sign an
other contract within a few months
a life contract with a pretty Urbana
girl, from which there will Ik no es
cape. Pete Bowling 'who was to have
pitched for St. Louis this year, went
crazy at Houston, where the team is
taking its spring practice, and has
been sent to his home. His case is
much similar to that of Kddie I)o

George Davis, Comiskey's "$u,000
beauty," has reported for work and
is playing at third base with the White
Sox. It is said that he has all his old

-Deacon" Charles Phillippe, the
veteran pitcher, says tha he would
not be in favor of making any changes
in either the foul fly or the bunt. "I
think some of the prettiest plays of
the game are made off those foul
dies." sail the "deacon." "It would
hardly be right to cut out plays that
add so much interest for the specta
tors, it seems to me. When the catch
er goes back for a foul ball and gets
it it brings out great shouts of ap
proval from the fans and especially
when the contest is" (dose. The same
way when the tirst baseman goes back
to the grandstand or the third base
man gets one f Ihosc flies after tl
long chase. They add to the features
of the game in more than one way. I
would not like to see those rules
Harry I). Cassady, Hie well-known
Bloomington player, now a member

probable that his plan will be followed
out in the construction of an amphi
theatre at Wilder field this spring.

"I'eachie" (iraham got into the sec

down a field position and made a hit
and a sacrifice.
The ruling that teams having a man
on base can now send up two coach
ers instead of the traditional one will
not work to the good of nervous
pitchers. The Chicago News quotes
a fan: "Imagine such a rule in the
palmy days of MctJravv. That old
bunch would have two coachers up on
the lines and then send two more lo
relieve them at critical points iu a
game. As a rule, all four would be
howling those coming and those go
ing. This would arouse the men on
the bench and they would stand up and
make other suggestions with the air of
a steam calliope in Chicago trying to
be heard in London. Then, in addi
tion, the man relieved would refuse
to go, and both he and his supposed
successor would be in the coaching
box howling blue murder. All that
would be needed for a climax would
b' for the pitcher to pitch a wild one
some ten feet over the catcher's head
or a shortstop to hit the fence with
his throw. This howling coaching is
a great thing, and the leagues are
right in sending up all the Arrie
Lathams they have in store to im
press the pitcher with the idea that
he doesn't own the place. I think
with the new change in the rule, bat
ting rallies will be increased fullv one
third." Manager Hayes has signed a bat
tery which he expects will make a
remarkable record in the Three-Bye
league before the season is far ad
vanced. It is composed f Henry
Wallace, pitcher, and .If hit St. Claire,
catcher. Both are Indiana boys and
have liecn in the game but a few
years, having played on independent
teams in the Ihtosier slate.
Larry Magil!. of Moline. was reiiom

M. L Keyuolds, of Aledo. who put C
A. aniuelson out of the running :u

nominee. The convention was presid

chairman of the senatorial committee.
Only nine f the delegates chosen
bv the Bock Island county Yates con
vent ion put in an appearance at Aledo,
2ti of the vacancies being tilled by
Lowden men with proxies. The six
remaining vacancies were given to
Yates supporters. The proxies for
the Lowden followers from the thea
tre convention were secured by'Magill

There was. a clash between tbe
Lowden and Yates delegates from
Bock Island county, but the conven
tion insisted on their settling tlien
differences outside the convention. An
agreement was arrived at by giving
the Yates men from this county two
memberships on the senatorial committee.
After the nominations had been
made the Y'ates delegates were amaz
ed to learn that they had been work
ing under Lowden credentials, and re
fused further to participate in the
convention. J he nominations of .Ma-
gill and Beynolds will probably be
protested by them.
IN WELDING STEEL CABLE
Hancock, Mich.. March 17. Thomas
Richards, a blacksmith in the employ
of the Calumet and Ilecla Mining
company, has succeeded In performing
n feat which is said never to have been
accomplished liefore, to-wit: welding a
1 Inch steel cable. The cable is now
undergoing a test, being kept In con
tinuous motion over two sheaves and.
fo weighted as to provide a continu
ous strain. It has shown no indication
of giving way.
The cable was spliced in the ordi
nary way, but just what else was done
has not been made public. Up to the
present time when a hoisting rope has
become disabled it has had to be con
signed to the scrap heap and its place
taken by an entirely new rope, no
small Item of expense.
