Pitcher Arthur Lundin Abandons
Diamond Career for
WILL NOT REPORT IN SPRING
Gives Decision in a Letter That He
Wrote to President Sex
ton. Arthur E. Lundin, one cf the leading
pitchers of the Three-Eye league, has
mnounccd his decision to abandon his
aseball career for railroading. He
rells of his determination in a letter
o XI. II. Sexton, president of the Rock
Lundin played his first profession::!
:all a3 a member of the Rock Island
team last year. He Is under reservn-
ion to the local club for the season of
l&o". Lundin writes that he will not
rexrt. He slates he has given the
pie! ion much thought, and his folks
have advised him to devote himself to
railroading, in which he has been en
gaged several years. At present he is
am ployed as night operator for the Bur
lington road at Orion, down in Henry
iounty, which is his home.
Lundin says that if he reported in
Rock Inland in the spring he would be
obliged to resign his railroad position.
His prospects of advancement are
promising, h intimate?, and he des
not wish to abandon his chances with a
big corporation for the uncertainties of
I.wm la llricretted.
President Sexton greatly regrets the
loss of the services of this young p!ay
?r, for in him he is confident are the
inalitks that in another summer's s'a--ioning
would insure him being called
by one of the larger organizations. Mr.
Sexton in his reply to Lundin told him
that it was his earnest opinion that he
was making a grievous mistake uni
ne that he would regret in later years,
n view of the great opportunities in
'laseball for those that have the goods,
and he has observed enoush of the Ori
n Imy'g work to be firm in the cnic
iin that eventually he would at a'.n
to the highest osit!on in the profes
sion. There are pitchers in 'he major
leagues who are drawing salaries oi
several thousand dollars a year.
The Three-Eye, in the few years of
its existence, has sent several players
who have Muck in both the National
and American, leagues. Charley C ase
last season made good with the Pirates.
Harney Pelty is pitching for the St.
Iouis Americans. IJeany Jacobsen is
with Washington. George Xill is with
the. '.. Senators also. Charley Dooin is
one of the star catchers of Philadel
phia. Harry Hay is with Cleveland.
Frank Dillon is with Brooklyn. All
these boys got their start in the cities
that comprise the Three-Eye league.
Cast Iron McOinnity, of the New York
Giants, was with Peoria only a few
umber of OfTrra for I.nmlin.
XIr. Sexton, during the winter, had
several flattering offers to trade L.vr
din. but would not consider any ef
them. He had banked on the Orion
boy as the mainstay of the Rock Island
pitching staff next year. Lundin is
young, physically well equipped, and
is a natural ball player. He fits into
any position on the diamond, but of
course his strongest joiiit is on the fir
ing line. He did brilliant work for
Rock Island. His record was remark
able in many respects, and his decision
to withdraw at a time when he was
rounding into his best work is all the
More disappointing to those who had
been watching his career, and were
confident that he would shine, before
many seasons, in the firmament of the
diamond stars. Several of the mana
gers of the major league clubs had
their eyes on Lundin last year, and
made Inquiries about him. All agreed
that h would make fast company tim
ber after another season. There Is a
note of reluctancy at leaving the game
in Lundin's letter, and there is still

has been offered to Rock Island for
Thornton, and he will likely come

concerning the change, but as yet has
had no reply from him.
Salary Limit ft .ZOO.
The salary limit in the Three-Eye
the coming season is to be $1,200, but
judging by the character of the players
that have been signed by the several
clubs in the circuit the majority of
them will begin with a monthly pay roll
of J1.S00. Rock Island will be nearer
the limit than any team, with Decatur
and Cedar Rapids as possible excep
tions. Donnelly, down at Springfield,
is believed to have the highest priced
string, as was the case a year ago. He
won the pennant last year. There was
no reason why he should not have done
so. The wonder is that he did nit
Pnish with a higher percentage. The
Springfield salary list was the subject
of animated consideration at the meet
ing of the league directors at Peoria
this week, and there was a promise
that an effort would be made to keep
within hailing distance of the limit. It
is understood that XIanager Donnelly,
whose monthly salary i3 said to be
$20u, will manage from the bench the

After the war lie became agent at
Cairo for a steamboat line and lived
there for several years. At the sani
time he took up the study of phrenol

the steamboat company to give charac
