Three-Eye Directors Prepare to
Receive Rockford in
CONFERENCE WITH ATTORNEY
Schedule Offered by Mr. Sexton Meets
Favor of the Magnates at '
The directors of the Tbree-Eya
baseball league, at their meeting- at
Peoria yesterday, prepared a line of
defense to be followed when the P-
Dlication for an injunction filed In
the McLean county branch of the cir
cuit court by the Rockford association
Is called for- bearing - next month.
Judge Gillespie, of Bloomington. of the
Ann or Gillespie & O'Donnell. who
bare been retained by the league to
defend the action, was present at the
meeting. Rockrord was not represent-
ed. This Is taken as an Indication of
the insincerity of that city, for it had
been annonnced that the Peoria meet
ing, would be taken advantage of In
obtaining service on. all the directors
of the league, only a portion of them
having been served with summons.
Th. imnression among the directors
is that Rockford Is merely bluffing and
it would be no surprise if the city de
faulted when the Injunction petition
is called in the McLean . court. Leg
ally, it is claimed by the directors that
Rockford has nothing to stand on. ana
this fact will be fully presented If the
hearing takes place.
Seitoa'o Idea Adopt.
The adoption of the schedule pre
sented by M. II. Sexton, of this c'ty.
as told briefly In a dispatch in The
Argus of last evening, followed a com
petition in which five schedule build
ers were entered. Mr. Sexton did not
care for the $50 prize so much as to
give the league the advantage of idea
that he had figured out would mean, a
considerable saving to each of e
eight clubs during the season. Ju
buqtie offered one schedule, Tcrre
Haute one and Bloomington one. The
nn nrenarea dy mt. bmuiu a.-
adopted unanimously. The Blooming
ton gentlemen who were successful in
the competition of one year ago with
drew thoir draft when they heard the
one gotten up by the Rock Island man
read. The season is to open May i
and close Sept. 17. giving each city
C3 games. The mileage Is reduced oe-
tween three and four thousand miles
over any previous season since the
league was formed. Of course tneiz.COi; Cedar Kaplds. 3.000; Davenport,

Silence Until Rose Returns.
Ann Arbor. Mich.. Jan. 4. Is Ralph
Rose bfgger than the University of
Michigan? If he is, the fact he com
peted in New York without the permis
sion of the athletic board of control
will be passed by without notice by
the university authorities, but if he
is not, he will be disciplined in some
summary fashion, or may even be de
barred from competing this year in
Michigan contests. President Patten-
sill, president of the board, refuses to
break his silence, and there probably
will be no authoritative statements
until Roue returns and the board holds
a meeting. It is regarded as a certain
ty that the board will not ignore the
big Californian's defiance of its author
ity, but will call him on the carpet
andjderoonstrate that it is a factor 'n
university athletics. The general opin
ion of Rose's conduct is that he was
willing to pacriflce his chances of com
peting for Michigan this year for the
delights of hearing the cheers of a big
Hart May Yet Meet Johnson. j
San Francisco. Cal.. Jan. 4. Marvin;
Hart and Jack Johnson refuse to abide
by the terms of the articles recently
signed by them for a fight on Jan. -7.
The trouble is that Billy Pierce, who
signed the articles for Hart, was not
authorized to do so and the latter
says a new set of papers must bo
drawn xtp If the contest is to take
place. It is not thought any serious
trouble is imminent but that this is
only a temporary hitch that will be
speedily remedied. The fight prob
ably will take place on the date orig
inally decided upon. It is. possible
that changes may be made in the con
ditions if thenew articles are signed.
Jack McCormick, who Hart claims Is
bis representative, will attend to the
signing, and the receipts will be di
vided 65 per cent to the winner and
35 to the loser. .

ORDER IS EFFECTIVE AT ONCE
Old Musicians Have Been in Service
Nine Years, Passing Through
Col. Ed Kittilsen. of the 6th regi
ment, has mustered in the Light Guard
Marine band of Moline as the regimen
tal band of the Cth regiment, Illinois
National Guard. This action is due
to several conditions which have caus
ed the Sterling band which has hith
erto been the regimental muslcmaker
to retire from the field. The new
hand, the mustering in of which began
yesterday by Col. Kittilsen, numbers
42 pieces, and, according to Col. Kit
tilsen, will be one of the best in the
Illntorr of Daad.
The Keystone band of Sterling was
appointed to the Cth regiment in 1896,
by Col. Jack Foster, and it has filled
the office with credit ever since. Afi
that time the band was under the di
rection of Prof. Nixon, and was ac
knowlcdged to be one of. the best
bands in the state. Mr. Nixon left
Sterling in the spring of 1S98 and at
that time John Prestin was elected
director. The band, 32 strong, accom
panied the Cth through the Spanish-
American war, went to Porto Rico and
came back, one of the few bands in
the state who made the entire trip and
saw actual service. Since that time
it has been one of the most efficient
and popular regimental bands in the
On each trip to the state encamp
ment the band has made a wonderful
hit, and the people of Springfield have
always given the boys the glad hand
Nine years of steady work is their
record and they are content to rest
on their laurels. The discharge from
the state service will not in any. way
effect the organization of the band.
