No game was played in the Three

Rock Island plays Tuesday, which is
an off day, at Clinton. Wednesday the
team will be here with Decatur.
Bloomington. Aug. 20. Ralph Pitts,
former third baseman of the Univer
sity of Illinois team, has been signed
to play right field for Bloomington in
the Three-Eye league.
Sunday, Sept. IS, has been fixed as
the dale of the return baseball game
between the Rock Island and Daven
port police department teams. It will
be played at the local league park.
The Peoria White Rocks come here
tomorrow for a game with the Rock
Island Independents at Twelfth street
park. The game will be called at 3:"0
o'clock. It will probably be the most
interesting amateur exhibition of the
season, as the teams are said to be
evenly matched. The Independents
have not lost a game this season, anil
the White Rocks have been putting il
over all teams in the vicinity of Peoria.
An excursion is to lie run from the

Many are coming to root for the White

Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 2. If Henry
J. Killilea and F. C. Gross of Milwau
kee buy the American league fran
chise in Washington next year, the
team will remain in Washington and
not. go to Providence. This was de
cided today at a conference held here
between Ban Johnson and John Tay
lor of Boston and Killilea, who was
asked to take the Washington fran
chise. It was a continuation of the
conference begun in Chicago yester
day. No decision was reached as to
the sale of ihe club, it is said, but
it is generally believed that Killilea
and his silent partner. (Jross. will go
!nto the deal. Cross said last niKht if
they take the club it will surely re
main in Washington.
There will bo baseball historv made
at the Twelfth street park tomorrow
morning. Teams representing The
Ar."?us and the I'nioti are to get to
gether after a month of challenges ami
counter challenges. The Knion boys
have practiced in Ihe alley alongside
the office on Eighteenth . street and
those of the Argus have been perform
ing their signal work in the alley
behind the press room. The game will
be called promptly at f o'clock. It is
hoped to finish it by the lunch hour.
Some of the boys who have circuited
the bases declare the distance between
the bags exceeds the recrulption.s and
they have recommended shortening
the same ye vera I picas. Turning a
rule before "'MV has been called by

not to exceed a v.rek's salary. The

PROPERTY OF ROCK ISLAND
Lease to Land Had Expired and Order
to Remove Enclosure Had
The ladies of Osco, Henry county,'
have valiantly emulated the example
f Carrie Nation, but instead of wag
ing war with hatchets against liquid
refreshment dispensaries, they turned
their attention to Ihe obnoxious stock
yards and with hatchets, axes, and
crow bars levelled them 10 the ground.
The war bioke forth Thursday even
ing between the hours of 7 ami 8
o'clock. The Rock Island road was
not the owner of the land upon which
the stock yards stood, but held it un
der p. lease.
Wo mm Tkf It I" p.
This lease expired Thursday, but
about C' days before it expired notice
was served on the railroad company to
tear the yards down and abate the nui--ance.
But with the slowness of cor
porations in attending to such things,
the prospects were that the yards
vould stand for some lime.
This did not suit the ladies of the
town, and headed with hatchets and
axes they marched to the scene and
plied their weapons. In an hour three
sides of the structure had been torn
down. The wreckers then desisted
and the war was over.
PI re Atliln to Kicltrmrnt.
During the excitement a very lare
strawstack on the Hoberg place not
far from the stockyards took tire, ami
cast a lurid glare over the women en
gaged in the work at the yards. Osco
had excitement enough in one evening
to last for a long time but the stock

and will remain at Harbin Springs.
Having put Joe Kennedy to the bad
early in the week, the champion fin
ished up today with a terrific bom
bardment of "Brother Jack", who had
to run up signals of distress and go
into dry dock for repairs.
In lieu of human targets, the boiler
maker went to his old punching bag
with the force ho has been holding
back for fear of putting Joe and Jack
out of business. His attack was so
fierce he broke the bag. Altogether
the champion put in an hotir and forty
minutes working in the gymnasium,
which, according to Dick Adams, is
equal to three days' work about San
Francisco bay, so intense is the heat
at Harbin Springs.
If Jack Munroe's appetite can be
taken as a criterion of his fighting
ability, he ought to give Jeff a most
interesting tussle for the champion

husky miner gulped down 15 raw eggs,
and would have eaten more had not

got away with two jiounds of steak
and a few other eatables, and still he

until two or three days before he en
