PLEASED WITH JOB
Ed Holland Want to Continue in
the Presidency of the Three
Kye Lease Another Year.
ANNOUNCES HIS CANDIDACY
Will Have Opposition From Daven
port, That City Having Planned
to Promote Jeems Hayes.
Ed Holland likes the job of presi
dent of the Three-Eye baseball league.
He wants to hold it down another
year, and with that end in view has
addressed a circular letter to each of
the eight clubs announcing that he
will be a candidate at the annual meet
ing to be held the 11th of next month
at Springfield. The following letter
has been received here:
Bloomingron. III., Sept. 17. .1. K.
Peetz, secretary Rock Island associa
tion: Hear sir I herewith formally
announce my candidacy for relection
as president of the Three-Eye league
Believing that there has arisen no se
rious dissatisfaction over my first ad
ministration and being given some en
couragement to make the race again.
I have concluded to go before the an
nual meeting as a candidate. I have
sought to the best of my ability to give
the league a business like and ccono
mical administration and if my efforts
have met with the approbation of
yourself and fellow officers of the
Rock Island association. I will appre
ciate your support. I take this op
portunity to thank the Rock Island as
sociation for uniform courtesy and
consideration towards me during the
season just closed and earnestly as
sure you that it has been appreciated.
Yours very truly.
Jfi-nin lln-m In thr liner. Too.
There is talk in Davenport of a can
didate for the presidency in the person
of .Teems Hayes. the manager of
the Davenport team. Hayes is not so
anxious to secure the position as are
some of his friends in the city over
the stream who are seeking to secure
control of the team there. They have
nothing against Hayes, but they have
an idea they can more successfully
manage the club than he has done in
the past four seasons. They have
conceived the presidency as one plan
of divorcing him from control of the
club in his home town, for he could
not serve as president of the league
and manager of t he Davenport team.
There are two factions that are trying
to fake the club off Iayes' hands. Dan
It. Home is the head and front of the
one and the father of Walter Davis
of the other. Walter has been a mem
ber of the Davenport team off and on
for years. He plays the game be
cause he likes it. He does not need
the money, as his father has plenty
of it. His father is a fan also, and
nothing would please him better than
to spend some of it on a team of
which his son would be a member. If
dad secured control Walter would be
sure of a steady job. At any rate,
they are trying in Davenport to pro
mote Hayes, and they are going to go
after the presidency for him at
Mr. Srtlnn In Mnalril Aenln.
While probably lie is not an aspirant
for the position, numerous men inter
ested in the league are desirous of
having M. H. Sexton return to the
presidency. It is no disparagement to
Mr. Holland to tay that there is no
abler baseball man in the league than
Mr. Sexton. He was the father of the
organization, carrying it, safely
through numerous storms, and perma
nently establishing it. There have
been regrets that he was not retained
in the position at the last annual
meeting, and the fact has since hecn
appreciated t.'iat the league indeed
was fortunate in having such a capa
ble head to direct its affairs.
Mloomington. III. Sept. 20. Pies:
dent Holland of the Three Eye league
has written a leter to the Springfield
Ita setia II association asking whether
the organization prefers a pennant or
a silver cup as a trophy of the SpriTtrr
field team's leadership of the league.
The letter will reach the Springfield

HARVEST FESTIVAL OF THE

There are people with whom times
and seasons count for nothing; each
year represents for them the same dull
round of monotony. Not so the Salva
tlon Army. Here we have a people,
broadcast, world-wide, whose constant
endeavor and method is to derive from
each season everything that by any
possibility can be put to use for the
practical benefit and uplift of human
kind. In the winter and spring they have
their enormous, well-nigh immeasura
ble relief work among the starving,
freezing poor; in the summer they
have their penny ice wagons, their
outings, their fresh-air camps, all for
the intolerably poor of our cities and
towns; whilst in the autumn, for the
sake of these same miserably poor,
they hold yearly their harvest festival
of thanksgiving to the Lord of the
This year's date for the harvest fes
tival is set for Oct. 1 to 4. inclusive.
during which period the army, the
whole country over, will not only glad
ly receive, but will eagerly seek for
gifts of every conceivable nature.
Primarily, perhaps, the fruits of the
earth in their multiform variety are
desirable, but. as the world very well
knows by this time, there is nothing
of any sort or kind of which the Sal
vation Army cannot make use as as
tonishing as it is noble.
Following, for example, is a list of
articles of practical utility to the army

LAW FOR THE AUTO
Cunocil Va Ordinance Requiring
Registration and Fixing Speed
at Which They Are to Run.
TEN MILES HOUR THE LIMIT
Owners to Furnish Plates, Which Are
to Be Uniform, After Paying $1
Into Municipal Exchequer.
A ride that the members of the city
council had behind the chauffeur on
Labor day appears to have softened
heir prejudices against the automo
bile as a vehicle to share the public
streets with the horse. Also they
learned enough about the fine points
f the choo-choo wagon to make it a
'.opic for an hour's discussion at their
meet ng last evening, in connection
.vith the ordinance for the registraiion
uid regulation of speed, which passed
InaMy. The registration fee was fixed
it $1. lb" owner to furni:'n the plates,
vhif h are to be t.nil'o;:ii -. to rii.e and
The speed limit is 1 miles an hour,
ind for violations there are fixed pen
ilties ranging between $1 and $.".. the
alter to be imjHised in the event of a
second or subsequent offense. Aid. C.
Wilson, who offered the ordinance,
stated that there had been suggestions
nade to him by members of the council
favoring more stringent punishment.
They were of the belief that a $50 line
,vas net big enough to make a reckless
wner of an automobile respect the
regulations, and the prospect of a term
behind the bars was the only medicine
for him. The jail clause, however,
was not embraced in the ordinance.
I n I form Willi Miittnr.
If the city was to furnish the plates
there should be a charge of not less
than 55. Aid. O'Connor said, to cover
the expense that the city would be put
to in having t hem made. Aid. Anderson
said that in Moline the fee was but $1.
and there was nothing to prevent the
owners of machines here going to that
city and having them registered in
case they thought the tax in Rock Isl
and was too steep. There should be
uniformity as far as possible between
neighboring cities in matters of this
character, he said. He favored the $1
fee. the city to specify the dimensions
and material polished metal was
agreed upon for the plates and the
owner to have the latter made wher
ever he desired.
Aid. O'Connor said the material of
the plate was not so important as the
question of speed, lie wanted to know
how a policeman could tell whether an
automobile scooting out on Twelfth
street was moving at a rate of 10 miles
or 25 miles an hour. He had stood on
the sidewalk ami watched some of the
wagons whizz by, and had to hold his
hat for fear of the draft blowing it off
his head. He had pretty fair eyes, but
he could not distinguish the occupants,
to say nothing of the number on the
rear axle. The captain had nothing
against the automobile. He would not
mind owning one himself, but the op
erators should be made to understand
that they will not be permitted to race
through the streets at the rate at
which he had seen some of them mov
ing. QiirMlon UN (it lOiiforeemrnt.
There was a question whether tin
ordinance could be enforced. City At
torney W. L. Ludolph answered that
now in Chicago the city was enjoined
from the enforcement of a similar or
dinance, which had been attacked
from various directions, the chief ioint
against it being that it was class leg
islation. There would be no difficulty
in regulating the speed at which the
machines are to be operated through
the st reels, but. as to requiring owners
to number them, iig'if there was a
chance for a fight. Accordingly the
city attorney advised holding the fee
down to the lowest sum possible. In
Davenport the state and city furnished
the number and registraiion plates,
but there the municipality was sup
ported by a state law. There is no
state law in Illinois, fti Chicago a fa
vor'te trick was for an owner to carry
two numbers, removing the one under
which he was registered when racing,
and frequently causing the arrest of
IWIrf of ( My Kln-trlrlnn.
An ordinance creating the office of
City electrician was offered without
reading by Aid. L. V. Kckhart and re
ferred to the ordinance committee to
report. The ordinance embraces many
of the precautions advocated by a rep
resentative of the National Hoard of
Underwriters, who apienred recently
before the council, requiring an official
inspection of all jobs of electric wiring,
etc.. and lessening the danger of fire.
A salary of $l.."ei per year is fixed. th
inspector to be appointed by the mayor
and confirmed by the council and serve
for a term of two years.

There were read two petitions from
property holders on Eighth avenue, be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets,
complaining of old trees that were
growing on the sidewalks and had at
tained such an advanced age that they
would probably topple over under the
first strong wind that struck them.
The mayor was asked to have them re
moved. The iet:t?ons were gram-d.

PEORIA COUNTY'S TROUBLES
Threatened With Bankruptcy on Ac
count of Election Expenses.
Rock Island county is not the only
one in the state that has financial
difficulties. Peoria county is being
bankrupted by its elections. A gen

between 54,.rou ami $r.0. The low
est estimate placed on the cost of the
coming election is $S.0uf. To elec

that have taken place in the office of
the overseer of the poor, is laid most
of the shortage that faces the county
and which is forcing the board of
supervisors to borrow $f!o,oMi in anti
