THE NAME VOTE
The Oskaloosa Iowa league basebal
team, which made a showing at Daven
port that opened the eyes of Manage
Jeems Hayes, did not have opportunity
to test the comparative strength ot
the Rock Islani Three-Eye league ag
The weather was the obstacle. Ye&
terday, when the opening game of the
series of three was scheduled for play,
it rained almost continuously from
morning until night.
During last night the temperature
took a violent drop for this season or
the year, leaving the diamond out at
the Ninth street park In such condition
that at the outside It could not be used
before tomorrow. Manager Cassi
loine and his Oskaloosa team depart
ed this morning for home.

Rock Island park, bur was prevented
hy cold weather, and postponed to

but President Sexton and Manager Mc
Connell are in communication with
several cities in the hopes of booking
a few. The one game is for Friday
with the Clinton Independents at the
Rock Island grounds.
Square Ileal Here.
The rjort had been circulated
among the Clinton players that Rock
Island would oven up. with them for
the treatment given Ruby, the local
player, in the Iowa town this week,
when they came down here. There is
no feeling against the Clinton players,
for they had no part In the trouble.
On the contrary they sided with Rock
Island, and the boys can rest assured
that they wiil be treated as gentle
men down here. And, besides, they
will get a square deal. Rock Island
does nt 'want to win if it is necessary
to resort to unfairness.
