A new baseball league has been
"ormed in Iowa to be known as the
Milwaukee league. It Is composed of
.mal towns along the line of the Mil
vaukee road in western Iowa and con-
ists of the towns of Coon Rapids, Ja
naica. Perry. Madrid, Cambridge and
Maxwell. A regular schedule has been
rranged and games will be played
during the summer.
The town of Otto, la., has a baseball
team composed of nine brothers nam

toosevelt's Wild Irish Roses. In ad-
lition to the nine players there is an
jther brother who is used for umpire
or is substituted when needed in the
game. Two sisters. Misses Margaret

It appears that the CHntonites had
an old score to settle with Ruby, he
having had an altercation during a
visit of the Davenport team, of which
he then, was a member, last season
and yesterday came the climax of
what had. been the manifest disposi
tion to get even since Ruby landed
there Tuesday morning. Beyond this
the aggravation of the trouble may

He was standing close to the plate,
expecting the pitcher to split the plate.
The ball struck him on the leg. He
threw aside his bat and started on a
trot for first base. Umpire Roberts
motioned him back, but Ruby, not see
ing bim, continued towards the bag.
Sweeney, the Rock Island shortstop,
interceded, and tried to reason it out
with the official, claiming that plainly
he saw the ball hit the batter. Ruby
and Sweeney walked towards the um
pire. The latter told them to go to the
bench; that if they did not he would
force them to do so. The arguments
grew pretty warm between the um
pire and Ruby and when the former

grappled him by the throat, but did
not strike hini. Rock Islan 1 players

said that if he was not to be allowed

other chance to hit the bail, and pick

evidently thought Ruby had shoulder
ed the hickory for another purpose,
and they surrounded him. and dragged
him from the park, refusing to listen
to him. or to Manager McConnell, or
even the Clinton players, who knew
Ruby well enough to trust him at his
word. Ruby was placed in-a buggy
and conveyed to the justice shop. He
entered a plea of guilty as the easiest
means of getting out of the difficulty,
and reiurned home last evening with

said Ruby this morning, "and Clinton

Clinton players tried to induce them

It was about the rawest deal I ever
saw handed out at a ball game."
Shortstop Sweeney says that the
CILntoa officers have the wildest vocab
ulary when It comes to blasphemy of
any policemen that he has met in his
time. He said that it was disgraceful the
way they cursed before the grandstand
during the trouble, calling both Ruby
and himself all the filthy names
they could lay their tongues on. Swee
ney was so surprised with the conduct of
the officers that he pleaded with them
out of respect to the lady spectators
to refrain from the use of such unbe
