COMMODORES LOSE 10 TO 3
Manager Nicol is Handicapped in Fail
ure of Players to Be On
Decatur, 111., April 5. It was fun for
.he White Sox and it was fun for the
irowd which braved the Icy north wind
yesterday to see Manager Jones and
his bunch play rings around the locals.
The score was 10 to 3. At that the lo
cals made a fairly good showing.
The local fans expected defeat, but
when "Ducky" Holmes faced Hardy in
the first inning and fanned out, there
was a roar and a whoop which beat any
yell Altrock ever let out, and he turn
ed out liome eloquent examples him
self. Jones was an easy out, and then
the trouble broke loose.
Green smashed the ball for two bags
and scored on Davis' single. That was
the only Chicago run in the game that
could accurately be described. The
nine runs which followed were the re
sult of a combination of hard hitting
bv the Sox and wild fielding on the
part of the locals.
A good share of tc runs were due
to Swacina's inability to face the sun
in left field, and five of the hits given
the visitors were caused by his losing
sight of the ball. Holmes, Sullivan
ami Tannehill led in the bitting,
"Ducky'' getting a home run and Tan
nehill getting two singles and two dou
bles. The first run scored bv Decatur was
due to a two-bagger by Swacina while
Altrock was in the box and a single by
O'Connor. The other two runs in the
niiitli were due to a triple by Syfert, a
wild throw by Davis, and a fumble by
Jiggs Donohue. Oweu. Altrock and
Smith officiated in the box for the vis
itors. and the first named was the most
The fielding feature of the game was
a catch bv Jones of a fly from McFar-
lr.ud's bat. It certainly had the ear-
marks of a throe-bagger when it start
ed, but .tones went back to the fence,
and with a spring in the air brought

Peoria, 111.. April :. Playing on a
wind-swept field and before a small
crowd, the White Sox "tourists" found
it an easy task to defeat the Peoria
Reds by the decisive score of 1G to 2.
The combination outfit which IsbelT,
for Chicago, now is managing gave a
spectacular exhibition of hard batting.
making five cleancut home runs, a
triple and a two bagger. Tlie.so, bundl
ed in with several singles and some
clever base running, yielded the large
crop of runs. The bulk of the heavy
stick work was credited to McFarland.
Dougherty, Walsh, Clark and FtVer-
son. McFarland, in addition to a clean
home run, succeeded in scoring a three-
bagger and a sinKle, while Tom Dough

Peoria was forced to put a patch

withstanding this handicap, the Reds
gave flashes of first class ball playing.

no reason why Nicol cannot put to

FOR CRUELTY TO CHILD
Grady Girl Tells of Terrible Torture,
and Exhibits Numerous Scars
The grand jury at Aledo has return
ed indictments against Archibald Mc
Kinney and his wife, May McKInney.
Sheriff M. B. Lawrence immediately
took Mr. McKinney into custody, but
he was released upon giving bond in
the sum of $1,000.
Mrs. McKinney is sick in bed at her
home and action against her will be de
ferred for a few days. She, too, will
give bonds in the same amount. The
charge which is preferred against them
Is cruelty to children, the alleged vic
tim being Stella Grady, and the penalty
as provided in a special statute of the
state of Illinois is a fine of not less
than $100 nor more than $500, or im
prisonment in the penitentiary for a
period of not less than one year nor
aiore than five years.
There is but little to add to the
story as published in the Argus. The
circumstances and the charges, how
ever, take on an added interest in view
of the prominence of the McKinney
family, and the terrible cruelty and
torture which is charged. The Mc
Kinncys are well known in Ruck Isl
and. Trlls of Cilrl's Cloud llrallh.
The case was presented to the
grand jury by State's Attorney V. J.
Graham. Four witnesses were ca'Jed
relative to the investigation. Among
them was Mrs. Martha C. Falkner, as
sistant superintendent of the receiv
ing school for homeless children at
Englewood. This institution is under
the auspices of the Illinois Home and
Aid society. Mrs. Falkner states that
when the girl was taken from the
school to be placed in the home, she
was in good health and that none of
the marks and scars which she now
bears were upon her. She bad no
growth over her eye and there was no
hene broken in her hand.
SteJa Grady, the girl who is the al
eged victim of the cruelly which is
charged in the indictments, was also
:al!t.d before the grand jury and testi
fied. Miss Grady made her charges di
rect. She accuses Mrs. Mciinney
with beating her, says that the bump
was c'aused by a blow from a broom
handle early last fall, that the marks
and scars on her back were made by
the use of forks and scissors, and that
the break in her right hand wj:s made
when she was struck with a stick of
( lotlilnK C lotCrd AVIIh Itlouil.
To a reporter she fold a vivid story
of her sufferings and of the miserable
life which she was compelled to lead.
The sight of the scars and wounds
upon her back were almost unbear
able. Her clothing was pierced and
still clotted with blood. Her story had
?reat weight with the jury and the
vote an returning the indictments 19
said to have been unanimous.
The case if tried this term will be
heard before Judge Graves. It is projV
able, according to the latest informa
tion, that an attempt will be made to
continue the trial until the September
term. Attorney George A. Cooke has
teen retained as counsel for the de
fense. The case promises to be one of the
most sensational that has come up in
recent years. Mrs. McKinney was a
Philleo before her marriage to Mr.
McKinney. She has been prominent
!n church and social circles in Aledo
Blamea Mrs. MrKinnrr Only.
Her numerous friends are loathe to
Relieve the accusations made against
her. Mr. McKinney has been one of
the leading men of the community.
He is the principal stockholder in the
Aledo Times-Record and a foremost
member of the Presbyterian church.
In her statement Miss Grady spoke of
Mr. McKinney as having treated her
only in a kindly manner ever since she
was a member of the household. Her
charges are confined to Mrs. McKin
ney. Miss Grady has been staying at the
home of Miss Margaret Gilmore, in
Aledo. smce she was trken from the
McKinney resilience. Here she ha3
been undergoing treatment, and the
vounds and bruises which she still
bears are slowly yieid'ng to the care
which is bestowed upon her. The case
was first taken up by members of the
