WOULD CHANGE THE LEAGUE
Springfield Paper Advocates a Division
of Three-Eye Towns.
A Springfield pap-r publishes a re-
ort to ih- effect that Manager Frank
Donnelley favors an Illinois-Indiana
league in 19.1. leaving th- Iowa towns
aow represented In the Three ! league
join a state league. The springfifdd
paper says: "As the Iowa league re
port harmony, prosperity and contin-
jed interest, the chances are that It
wili continue to live. Ir was known
ast winter that Davenport. Cedar Rap-
Ids and Dubuque were not averse to
nterinc the Iowa ltacue ami thus
avoid the long jumps to the central
Illinois territory. By dropping three or
four of the smaller towns ann aamn
ing the three preamt members of the
Three-Eye and possibly Rock Island, the
Iowa league could b made one of the
most compact of the minors in the
country, and the traveling expense
item would be very .smal!. Burlington

mentioned as a successor of Rockford

ould be perfected. The four cities of j
Bioomington. Peoria. Springfield am; ;
Decatur could hardly be excelled In
point of baseball enthusiasm, while j
rom a standpoint Of juxtaposition and I
rivalry there is no superior quartet of
:ities in the country. For the Indiana
ind of the league, the cities of Terre I
laute. Evansville. Fort Wayne and
South Bend, or possibly Mar. on. could
be counted upon. With such a leag io.
ill composed of large cities, there
.vould be an assured income, while th

raveling expenses would be no
rreater than in the present
Three-Eye league, and much less
ban In the present Central league.
One of the most enthusiastic suppor
ers of the idea of consolidating the
Three-Bye and Central leagues along
he following line-, la Manager Frank
Connelly, of the Springfield club. He
hinks the scheme is a happy solution
f a probtem that has been worrying
be magnates of all three leagues. He
as been opposed to the retention ot
.f the Rockford club In the Three-Eye
ague on the ground of InaccessabilRy

!xal on the last trip to Rockford his ex
enses were $17 more than the in
ome from that point. It Is believed
hat the Bloomington and Decaf.tr
aanagements will approve the change
md as Peoria was a promising Three
Sye leagne candidate last winter, the
ssociation there will likely vote for
he trove. If the Indiana clubs are
lonvinced of the wisdom of the move,
here is very reason to believe that it
win be a go. If the developments of
he closing months of the present sea
ma indicate the collapse of the Iowa
leagne. then Cedar Rapids, Davenport
md Dubuque will probably prefer to
emain with the Three-Eye. and will
lOUbtless vote with the Illinois clubs
"or the removal of Rockford and the
idmittance of Peoria."
Donnelly at Dubuque Is reported
laving advocated such a plan.
