Hock Island fans had their first
smile in thn-e day s at Twelfth street
parts yesterday afternoon. Even Old
Sid. who had been hiding in threaten
ing clouds, which hroke into a shower
that almost prevented the frame, took
a gladdening peep at the crowd as it
was leaving the park. A mall boy seat
ed on the enrbing on Seventh avenue
who had shouted at a passenger on a
returning ear, when told ihe result
clasped his hands in supplication, fell
back apparently in a faint, and then
gave forth a shout for joy. The good
news was too great a '-hock for him.
Ciiarlcs Botsford, the newly Efarned
'.wirier, proved the savior of the
Colts, halting them on the disastrous
ride they have been having on the to
boggan the past few week. He has
an easy delivery, ver.v much after the
fashion of LakafT, only he is right
banded.. He displayed a cool head,
ind twice he pitched hitnirlf out of
light places in which it looked a safe
wager that Decatur would score.
Botsford would have made Ma debut
with ,-i shut-out iiir for an error by
I. ally in the ninth inning, Hank Wal
frs, who had connected, scoring from
first base on Krebs' fly in left. I. ally
made a long run. the hall, which hail
been knocked until it was nearly out
f sight, glancing toward the foul line
in its descent. The field' r just got a
piece of it.

It was a pretty exhibition. Once a
Ugh! seemed imminent between Miller
and Krebs. Trouble was avoided by
interference of the umpire and oth
er players. Krebs should have been
put out of the game for his dirty
work, blocking Miller in his effort to
execute u double play in the seventh
There was excitement at the start,
the Decatur players gathering about
Umpire Milan, as if they were bent on
mobbing him when he sent Nichol, who
had mad'- home, back to third base,
and called out G rue hater tor booting
i ball knocked between second and
third by Svvacina. The umpire called
time and showed the rules to Manager
M c F a r land, but the bitter was obsti
nate, and insisted on a different in
terpretation. He appealed to M. II.
Sexton, president of the local associa
tion, who was a spectator in the grand
stand, but Mr. Sexton replied that it
was not any affair of his; that the
umpire was in charge, of the game,
and that if MeFarlatifl was sure of his
point he had the privilege of pro
testing the game before the board of
directors of the league. llcFarland,
after cooling off. realised thill he wa
in the wrong. Mid proved himself the
gentleman by apologizing t Umpire
Milan for some hot words that h had
indulged during (he srgmstent.

to locate W'eigana's curves, drawing
a single in the second. The first score

hit after he had been sacrificed on to

made his third successive strikeout.
The second score for the Colts came

CONNER S DEFIES ORDERS:
STOPS AT DAVENPORT HOTEL
Bloomington and other baseball
team- have been passing Bock Island
hotels up and stopping in Davenport
when plnying the series in the two
cities mi the river. The local manage
ment protc-ted that it was only fair
that the clubs should put up at the
Beck Island hotels when playing in
this ctty. Bloomington with others
agreed to do so. Only a few days ago
M. II. Sexton, pre-i lent of the Hock
Island association, had a letter from
S. II. Miller, president St Blooming
ton. stating that he had ordered Man
ager William dinners to hereafter
stop with his team in Rock Island
during the erie here. Mr. Sexton
this morning was surprised to learn
thai Connrrs an ! his team were reg
istered at the Kimball house in Dav
enport. He telephoned Conners and
informed him of the contents of Pres
id in M;?ler'- letter. Connors replied
that it made no difference with him
he proposed remaining in Davenport.
(Thereupon Mr. Sexton notified him
that unless he brought his team to

would be no gajne 'his afternoon, sat

his posit ion by the present of the

Tri-Grty Labor Congtess Gives
Ultimatum to Locals That
Have Failed to Pay Dues.
GRACE TILL NEXT MEETIIG
Hush Nlcol Scorched for Patronizing
a Voa-Cnion Hotel at
At the regular meeting of the Tri
City Labor congress held last night,
the delinquents in not paying their
dues, the lack of interest manifested
in the congress as shown by the small
attendance of members, and Hugh
Xico and his team of Kockford ball
players while in Bloomington, where
they ar said to have stopped at the
Illinois hotel, which has a non-union
-hop adjoining and running under the
sane management, and the tennis' rid
ing on the street railway in that city
the owners of which refuse to make
a satisfactory settlement with its
striking union men. wire the chief
topics of discussion.
There are :;T union.- in the labor
congress and a number of the mem
bers have derived benefits from it
without reciprocating bj paying their
flues. After the subject had been
thoroughly discussed it was decided
by the majority of the delegates prcs
ent by adoption of a motion that all
those unions on the delinquent list
will be suspended at the next meeting,
thus considering them as being unfair
to organized labor.
Huchey'n Mttie Koast.
The congress is in receipt of a com
munication from Bloomington, writ
ten by the corresponding secretary of
the union in that city, stating thai
Hugh Nicol and his team of ball player-
had stopped while there at the
Illinois hotel, to which there is con
nected a non-union shop, and that the
team also rude on the street car line
there, the owners of which arc stead

employes, who have been out for sev
eral weeks. 'Ihe union ;isks that the
ball club of Bock Island, when in
Bloomington. refuse to patronize ihe
street railway, and (hat they should
not stop at a place where a non-union
-hop iv run in connection.
The small attendance -,t the con
gress meeting was another very Im
portant subject broached. Here of
late, according to the members, each
meeting has been attended by a small
er body than the previous one. It was
pointed out that unless the congress
had a strong attendance at its meet
ing it would h se power in Ihe three
cities, and thus lie of lis.- benefit to

'I'll!- nnions that have had trouble

its duty, have been taking less inter

In the past few months five union
have withdrawn their delegates to the
congress because of minor grievances.
This matter is to be investigated im
mediately. The organization of the
beer drivers anil yard men of the tri
nities was reported at the meeting,
and also that the Boofers' union de
sired to be admitted to the congress.

other side of the river. The practice
that several of the league teams have
gotten into of puttincr up in Davenport
instead of here has been commented
upon throughout the league, and on
his late visit here President Hollanr
recognized the fact that this is not
fair and said that lie would use his
influence to have the matter reme
