Can Form New League.
Dubuque Times: The action of the
Rockford baseball directors in resort
ing to law to maintain the town in the
Three-Eye league will result in that
organization being disbanded and a
new league formed. The Rockford
people have taken no direct action as
yet but proceedings will be instituted
in the near future and a stubborn
fight will be made to keep Rockford
in the league. The outcome of the
whtde business will be that a new
league will be organized. Before the
meeting at Springfield the directors
were aware that Rockford intended
to fight against being thrown out of
the league and they were prepared for
action. It has been agreed among
the directors that as sxin as Rockford
starts proceedings they will hold an
other meeting and disband the Three
Eye league and then reorganize under
another name. A two-thirds vote is all
that is necessary to disband the
league, and the seven clubs will vote
that way. The receipts in the treas
ury will then be divided and each
prepared at St. Ixuiis in which
provided that the franchises then in
force would last for three years from
of the Three Eye league relative to the
WILL BE A CONVICT
Davenport Man Pleads Guilty to In
dictments by the Grand
Ex-Mayor S. F. Smith, of Davenport,
today pleaded guilty to indictments for
larceny by embezzlement and corrupt
perjury and this afternoon was ar
raigned in the district court to receive
sentence. A long term in the peniten
tiary faces him.
His sentence will end one of the
most sensational cases that Davenport
has ever known, involving the fall of
one of the best known and most highly
respected citizens and the confiscation
of his entire estate, now in progress,
to make gooel. as far as it will go. his
peculations from various trusts that
had been reposed in him. His short
ages aggregate over J 100,000.
Smith spent the summer in the east
under bond to return and face trial.
The grand jury, which was in session
last week, investigated the case and
returned 11 indictments on the above
injunction proceedings that may be
pushed. He secured all data possible,
showing Rocl: ford's status and the
laws governing the league. No imme
diate action will be taken. After a
thorough study of the case the attor
neys believe the association has a
chance of winning in the courts.

Hanson Military Academy cf Ful
ton, Overwhelmed Saturday
by Score of 45 to 0.
SUPERIOR AT ALL POINTS
Rock Island High School Idle Daven
port and Moline Win Their
In one of the most one-sided games
?ver played in Rock Island, the Angus
tana college team Saturday defeated
the tram from the Hanson Military
academy at Fulton by a score of 45
'o 0. At no point in itie game did the
visitors have a show against their
leavier and more skillful opponents. I
The Augustana boys bad by far the)
est of it in weight, and they outplayed
he Fulton boys in all of the points of
:ao game. Had the locals put more
il.irit into the game the could just as
readily have made the score double
vbat it was, for th?re- was but one pos
siblo outcome of the game. As it was.
ho Augustana boys consented to cut-.
i;ng the last half of the game live min
utes short to accommodate the vis-tor:-.
The captain of the Fulton team
sa;d that at the last minute his team
vhkh was to make the trip to Rock
Island backed out, and he had to se
'ect what, material he could em such
From the t'me that Augustana kick
ed off to l.eland at 3:.".0 until time was
called, the local boys had things all
'heir own way. Lelnnd returned the
ball 10 yards, where it was lost on
downs to Augustana. Augustana by a
series of quick plas sent the ball
close to the goal, when a fumble lost
Lhe ball to Fulton. They were held for
downs, and in another minute Augus
tana had scored, amid enthusiastic
cheering from the sluc!:r.cs, where n
good crowd had gathered to witness
the contest. The kick for goal failed,
leaving the score 5 to 0. The first half
was productive of four more touch
downs, three of them by Swanson, and
the other by Purn, who scored the first
touchdown of the game.
Three of the five goals were kicked,
leaving the score at the end of the
half 2H to 0 in Augnstana's favor.
The second half went much as the
first did. with the exception that sev
eral changes were necessitated in the
lineup of the two teams. Strawn, Ful-
lon'ii center, was put out with a dislo
cated collar bone, and Hamilton suffer
ed a slight injury to his spine. Others
who were put. out by slight injuries
were allowed to go back into the game
in place ef the players who were more
severely injured. Oberg succeeded
Lofgren at end for Augustana. reter
son was placed at right tackle, and
Newstrom at right guard. During the
second half Hall. Berger and Forsberg
were sent through the line for touch
downs, and with two successful goal
kicks the score stood at 43 at the close
of the game. The back field for Au
gustana played an excellent game, and
the weak point throughout was in the
fumbling of the ball, which was quite
noticeable during the entire game.
Howard Leland, of the academy team,
was one of the best players on the
field, and had the whole team been
composed of such men as he, the re
sult would have been different. Many
a good play by Augustana was spoiled
by his efficient line plunging. It seem
ed that he was in the midst of the in
terference on eve ry play. He was put
in the game during the second half,
and proved himself to be a much more
efficient player than the man he suc
ceeded. While the game Mas a one-sided af
fair, it gave the Augustana team an
opportunity to discover some weakness
es in its play, and the boys during this
week will be given some hard practice
by Coach Coldren. under whose direc
tion the team has made wonderful im
provement in a very short time.
The two teams lined up as follows:

While Rock Island high school had

f iot ball honors, played and won their
tames. Moline had a walkaway with
the Tipton (Iowat team, winning 24

of the season. Ottumwa. their op
ponents, had aspirations for state high

The score was 6 to o. Davenport sceir
ed in the early part of the game and
when time was called the visiting team
had the ball within a few feet ef Dav
enport's goal, luck preventing th?
touchdown that seemed inevitable.

The Moline East End Athletics came
near Buffering the first defeat of the
season at Athletic park in that city yes

gridiron stars of other days and put up
an unexpectedly hard tussle.

The M. & K. football team defeated
the Centrals of Davenport Sunday af

Davenport team got its only touch
down on a fumble by the M. & K. team
on the Central's 20-yard line, when one
of the Centrals, picking up the ball.
ran the entire distance for a touch
down. After that the M. & K.'s goal

The husky members of the West

Centrals of Moline yesterday afternoon
by a score of (1 to o on the Moline
flebl. The game had many very fine
fertures, one of them being the 5"
yard run for a touchdown made by
Nolensky. The Rock Island boys did
some very efficient line bucking, this,
being their strongest point. The Rock

Coal Valley had two political dem
onstrations Saturday evening. Hon.
L. M. Magill and J. K. Scott were the
star performers at a republican rally
at the town hall, and G. Washington
McCaskrin held forth in front of one
of the suds parlors. It was a political
version of the modern "Uncle Tom's
Cabin." with two Marks, two bands,
and other accessories. There were
two parades, the republican speakers
having been accompanied by the First
YoteTs' club of Moline and its drum
corps, and George having several
pieces of brass and a hunch of his fol
lowers from the city. With Magill and
McCaskrin pouring forth campaign
logic within a block of each other the
inhabitants had abundance of excite
ment, and it looked at times as though
there would be a clash. George was
obliged to call on the marshal! to quiet
a Magill enthusiast who was taking
him to task for some of nis assertions.
