Application For Injunction Will Be
" Called Shortly at Bloom- '
IKooralngton. Jan. 24. The suit filed
against the Three-Eye league by the
Rockford Baseball association to pre
vent the transfer of the franchise to
Peoria will corce up in a few d3ys
in the circuit court here. The attor
neys for both sides are ail ready and
the case promises to attract much at
tent ion. as it will be unique in base
The principal argument will apply
to the injunction. The litigants will
seek to set aside the transfer of t'te
Rockford franchise to 1'eoria as ille
gal. The league counsel believes that
it will be imiossiblc to secure such
an order from the-court owing to thi
fact that Ihe change was made months
ago by a majority vote and !:i accord
ance with the constitution of the
leajrue. and. further, that of the new
membt r of the league has practically
completed j. reparations for a new sea
son. To admit one old member with
the consequent expulsion of the new
would give the latter equal grounds
for damaif's with the new. In fact
Peoria wojiid have better reasons for
a siiit because the latter city has not
bet n tried under the present condi
tions miiI its u.i:iii) r;hl is ,'n a sense
an unknown quantity, while Rock fort!
has bit n tried and found wanting.
When the league counsel reads the
figures showing the patronage at Rock
ford for several seasons past and then
cof'ij ares th.-m with thj patronage at
tie r places it is believed that the eon
'.t will have strong cflWt irj.on tlie

Thres Bills That Will be !ntro
duced in the Legislature
CIVIL SERVICE. LOCAL OPTION
Hard Roads Report to Be Submitted
by Commission Named by
In the legislature this week three
important measures will be introduced
They are the hard roads proposition, a
itK-al option, and civil service bill. The
good roads measure will follow a re
port which has been drawn by the
rommission named by Gov. Yates in
Civil service bills have already been
introduced in both houses, though not
jf a general character, and the real
work of the committees having this
subject in charge is yet to come. In
the bouse. Representative Ilurke's bill
merely provides for the application of
civil service to the sanitary district
while Senator Humphrey's biil seeks
to provide for optional civil service to
ihe counties. As this includes the
sheriff's, treasurer's, clerks of probate
nd superior courts. coroner's and oth-
;r offices of county government, the
Mil will undoubtedly receive consid
erahle attention. Hut neither of these
;tvers the entire ground sought for.
This, it Is expected, will come In a bill
io bo introduced in the house th!s week
!y Representative Norden. of C'Mer.ro.
.Mr. Norden. who is chairman of the
Xvll strvice committee in Ihe house.
j;.S been it deep student of the subject
of civil service, and ftis bill will, it is
stated, be very comprehensive in its
KrpwrS u .imI Itonilx.
The god roads commission will pte-
sent its rewrt to Ihe legislat tin1
Thursday or earlier, and the report
will be followed by the Introduction
of a bill for the building of a system
of hard roads in the state, puitirg
forth the ideas of the commission nffer
a year's exhaustive study of the sub
jeet." This bill will have the approval
of Gov. Deneen. and probably will be
modeled after the state road system of
Pennsylvania. It will be entirely op
tional in its character, carrying this
idea not only beyond county and town
ship u proval. bet to individual prop
Local option is looked for, in the
senate at l ast. Senator Francis W.
Parker, of Ctio!:. will probably intro
duce a bill this week providing for lt-
cal option, and olhT bills of this char
aeter are expected to follow, both in
the senate ami house.

Jim Parr Beats Rooney.
HufTalo. N. Y., Jan. I'L Gripman
Rooney of Chicago won only one eiut
of the three falls in his catcn-as-catch-can
wrestling match here last night
with Jim Parr, the English champion.
Parr was lightning ou the mat, while
Rixmey furnished an example eif a. fat
man. in a hurry. Parr won the first
fall in 22:20 and Rooney landed Parr
in 5:2i on the second trial. It took
the Englishman lu:33 to put Rooney's

"Buddy" Ryan is Ambitious.
Philadelphia. Pa.. Jan. 24. "Phila
dedphia Jack" O'Urien's next opponent
will in all probability be Buddy Ryan,
the white welterweight champion. Sig
Hart, his manager, met O'Hrien on
Saturday and offered to allow his
charge to fight the middleweight, pro
viding Jack would agree to make liil
pounds at C o'clock on the night of
the contest. O'Brien agreed and they
will sign articles in a day or two to
meet before the club offering the best
inducements. While Ryan can make
140 pounds he is confident he can de
feat O'Hrien if the latter trains down
to IS I pounds. Ryan has made a good
impression on local fight followers.
