Three Eye Baseball league at the an

day at Springfield to succeed Rock

protest from Roekford, and it Is prob
able that injunction proceedings will
be commenced at once to compel the
league to rescind its action and to
recognize Roekford. Roekford was
thrown oi:t on the ground of failure to
support the visiting teams. It is al-

The o d oJficers were re-elected a.s

of HlfMmington ; vice president, James
T. Hayes of Davenport. The pros-1

Springfield won the pennant, led in

The annual league banquet was held

will be arranged at a meeting to be
held Jan. 1 in Chicago.

the league as long as any town. We (
have had our tips and downs like every
other tQwn. and just as every other.
town wrll have. We can't all win pen-
nants every year. Some town must ,
be at the taw end. we nau tne pen-j
nant two years ago and no one raised
any fuss about the attendance. Xo
matter what the attendance has been,
whenever the clubs came to Roekford
they found a team there to play. There
was never any question of our being
on hand when the game was called.
We have paid our guarantees, paid
our salaries and our expenses and our
percents to the association. We have
the money to stay through another
year and this league knows that we
will stick. Peoria has never played
through a season.
'Notwithstanding the doubtful repu
tation that Peoria has in baseball his
tory, the representatives of Al I-eiry,
the big brewer. Wiiliani Meidroth and
Arthur Lehman, all wealthy and re
sponsible men. have been sufficient to
convince the league directors that Peo
ria not only has honorable intentions,
but will stick to any agreement that
may be asked by the association.
We don't care if we lose $15,000
the first year." said Mr. Meidroth yes
terday morning. "Peoria wants a
franchise in the Three-Eye league and
is willing to pay for it."
