Rock Island Police Consent to Mayor
Phillips Umpiring the Contest
On the Other Side.
One thousand tickets have already
teen disposed of in Davenport for the
baseball game to be played by the
I cams of the Rock Island and Da veil
port police departments at the league
park across the river on Sunday after-
loon, July An equal numner or
pasteboards have been left with the
police here, ami they are expected
o sell them among their friends. The
biggest crowd the park ever held is
Xpected on this dale. The receipts
vili be divided alter the accustomed
ishioa, i he winner taking Ou and the
st r 40 per cent of the receipts.
The game is to be called at 2 o'clock
prompt. II it is not mushed at o:,n
the players will lake a recess for sup
per, resuming an hour later, and keep
ng at it until darkness interferes. The
Rock Island team has consented
finally to Mayor Phillips, of Daven
port, officiating as umpire, on his sol-
imn promise not to play favorites.
The mayor lias stated that, if he is to
preside at the game he will not toler
ate kicking. He has arranged to hav
the patrol wagon on the grounds, and
all offenders will be put out of the
line, driven to the station and locked
up. to remain until sucn nme as m
sees lit to release them.
The only objection the local players
have to iliis is that some of the lxys
might adopt the kicking racket as a
ruse to get out of the game when they
grow tired, li is likely both teams
will wind up in the Davenport station
ln-fore the game is finished. It has
been suggested that Mayor Phillips
have two wagons on hand.
