Springfield at Decatur.
Decatur, Sept. 2. Roxy Walters,
who covers second base for the Com
modores, can pitch some, and Manager
McFarland put him In to turn the trick
and make it three straight from Rock
Island yesterday. But Roxy could not
cut it. He was kept dodging base hits
while he remained on the line, and
was retired in favor of Pete Nolden.
Pete was more effective. Hagerman
was an enigma to the Commodores,
allowing but six hits, and the team be
hind him giving him errorless support.
Kuhn and O'Connor collided going af
ter a foul fly and both were so badly
hurt that they , had to quit playing.
O'Connor was carried uncouscious
from the field. Kuhn sustained a gash
in the chin that required several
stitches to close. The score:

my Foster Captures Derby.
Dick Kell, who walks a night beat
as a member of the local police depart
ment, lost his accustomed sleep yes
terday afternoon, but he never batted
an eye. as he was driving Billy Ray
mond to victory in the mile clip, tha
only harness feature of the nine days'
running meeting under the auspices of
the Rock Island Jockey club at the
Ninth street track. The prize was a
Probably a prettier or more sensa
tional finish has never been witnessed
on a track in this section than that be-
ween Raymond and Jess, the latter the
little black mare owned by i arl J.
Mueller, of this city, and which was
riven bv ICd Ward, of Moline. Jess
came under the wire almost a head in
the lead of her closest competitor, and
ould have had a chance to have tried
for the honors of the contest but for
the fatal mistake that she was per
mitted to make in breaking at the
rst turn in the second heat.
Two Other Ilorurn Break.
Two of the other horses had erred
imibirly, but Raymond had niaintain-
d bis pace, and the judges according-
held that Jess, although winning
he heat, must be set back. Raymond
captured the first heat with com
parative ease, with Billy the Ghost
railing at his heels, but not making
ufiicient gains at any point to worry
the driver of the head horse. Jess was
hird in the first heat, Barney p.. driv-
n by his owner. Al Moosman, of Mo-
mo, nolning tne end or me proces-
ion. Barney behaved badly in the
second heat, breaking repeatedly. In
rounding the first turn he hoisted his

attempt a hurdle. Moosman hugged
him close, however, and got him in
motion in time to finish on his good
Would Not Hun Her Agnin.
The judges at first were disposed to
overlook the offense of Jess and not
impose the penalty Imposed by the
rules, but her owner, Mr. Mueller, pro
tested that the decision ras entirely
satisfactory to him, and even if the
judges insisted on a third heat he
would withdraw, as his horse was not
in condition to go again, having been
out of the pasture only, two weeks, and
being in foal. This race was the only
harness event of the meeting. Ray
mond was three to five in the betting.
Itunnliig It ecu Are Exciting.
There were three running events.
with the Rock Island derby as the
feature. This was captured by Tommy
Foster, a St. !uis horse, with Me
Carthy up. There were two dashes
Foster taking both in a walk. Tin-
och, a brown gelding, with Woolsey
up, bad tbe pole at tne start, but sne
weakened at the second turn, coming
n second in the first, and last in tne
second heat. Tinloch was the veteran
of the field, and was played even in
the books. Foster was a two to one
shot. The five-eighths-mile dash for
all ages furnished the spectacular fin-
sh of the afternoon. This was the
second race on the bill. Soundly, a St.
Ixiuis mare, ridden by Berry, winning
by a nose over Bamboo Tree, with
lXremusn top. Soundly is a 5-year
ild and Bamboo Tree a 3-year-old.
Miss Messenger, four to one. looked
like the money at the start, but fizzled
out, holding the end of the row at the
finish. Soundly was a two to five shot.
The three-quarters-mile dash was the
closing event of the afternoon, and
was won by Frank Jones, an even
break, with Wilson up.
ThouMBd People There
There were fully a thousand people
in attendance. The day was an ideal
one for racing, although a trifle close
for the horses, which seemed to suffer
considerably from the heat, and the
track was fast, the five-eighths-mile
croing in 1:09. Rock Island had never
had running races before, although
they have been held in years gone by
on the other side of the river. But if
there were any there who did not un
derstand" the game before the first
lash there were not manv who were
not head over heels in it after
the first one was run. It seems more
natural to see a horse dash away over
the course with a boy astride, lyine
forward, bending and begging, and
wnippmg. ann spurring, his tine
thought to reach the wire first. It is
not so much a matter of the money
that is in sight as it is in the satisfac
lion of besting the other fellow. It's
the sport. A running race is sport
It is ejort of the old fashioned kind,

A horse harnessed to a wagon does
not appear to have a fair show. He
ean't let himself loose like he might if
he were free of the straps and the
harness and the shafts. Turn him
loose with his little friend with the
visor on top to say pretty things to
him and tell all the nice things he will
have to eat if he just beats his neigh
bor. and then watch him scoot. He
does his level best, and so do all the
others competing, and the result is
race that momentarily separates one
from his wind. There was excitement
in plenty at the Ninth street track
yet-terday afterntwn. It was tbe kind
that causes one to rise up in his seat
and cheer. He might have a favorite! of the three cities. The Independents
and he might not. But he is pulling j have trimmed every team that has met

Eye season was a couple or weeks
onger there is no telling where the
pennant might land.
Disciplining did not seem to have
much effect on Wolf of Dubuque. He
was back at his old tactics in the game
at Roekford Sunday and the outcome
was that a policeman escorted him
from the grounds. Wolf is a good
ball player, but he is not of the dis
position that makes a man popular on
the Three-Eye circuit.
Ralph Pitts, the McLean loy who
has been playing right field for Blooni-
ngton became disgusted with his poor
showing with the stick and asked the
directors to give him his freedom.
He said that he was out of luck and
that in justice to the team, that some
other man should be given a show.
The management, however, decided
that such a player was too valuable to
lose and that his views in the matter
indicated that he was anxious to do
the right thing. He will be kept, how
ever, and it is believed that lie will
yet find the ball safely.

Peters at Decatur the rankest he has
seen in years. He stole the game of
Wednesday from Rock Island. His
work was not even satisfactory to the
home people, and they manifested
their displeasure in hooting Peters.
Nic says when the people of the home
town think an umpire is not doing the

Joe Cantillon of the brewers has re
ceived another offer from Charlie Com
iskey to go with him next season, but
the chances are that nothing will come
of it, as Joe has given Magnate Have-
nor first call. and. in fact, has already
agreed to take hold of the team again
next season. There has been some
talk of Cantillon taking a team of
stars to the Pacifc coast this fall for
a series of games, but the Indications
are that the trip will not be made, for
the reason that Henry Harris, owner
of the grounds In San Francisco. Is
not anxious to let them out this fall,
and without them it would be foolish
to try and hold the games.
