The Davenport Three-Eye team de

the down river town yesterday, but
did not have a walkaway at that. The
score was 3 to 1. Dudley, the Daven
port amateur, pitched for Muscatine
and allowed but seven hits.
BREEZES FROM FANS
Decatur is Deserving.
That Decatur bunch is not only a
dangerous bunch, but a deserving one
While the Clinton Independents got
11 hits off Hua Munch, of the Chicago
Wst Ends, who played up the river
yesterday, they made a number of cost
ly errors and the visitors' four hits
brought in runs tnouph to win 5 to 3.
Is Another One.
The report coining from Bloomington
that has been passing about the circuit
that there was a vntp on the question
of extending t he Three Eye schedule
nod that the result was a tie. is like
en or two other items that have em
anated from the same source, not whol
ly truthful. Hock Island never offi
cially expressed a preference one way
if 1 if
or the other. Don't know whether the
other towns did or not.
Hines Gets One.
Manager Hincs of Dubuque, has
signed another pitcher and he has
probably joined the team at this writ
ing. The latest addition to the staff
is Tom Hodson, whose home is in Ga
lena and who made such a fine show
ing last year with the Galena Indepen
rJow Kreig Gets It.
Decatur Herald These hot days ad
but get the beet of "Oom Bill" Kreig.
After Sunday Jie was -barely able to
wadd.'eto the bench for a drink of wa
ter anesTerday the bright sun pot
in hi eyes and caused him to do some
optical gyrations in calling balls and
strikes. Bill is honest and capable but
he needs seasoning before he will be
entirely satisfactory. President Hol
land yesterday named Mike Lawrence
as the reserve man on the umpire staff
and this will make it necessary for
Bloorninpton to get somebody else to
play the outfield. Lawrence played
with the Bloomers yesterday and did
his share of "work in'two losing games.
1 ' Get the Glad Hand.
The Islanders on their return home
this afternoon were showered with con
gratulations for the showing made on
Conners Lives on Liquid.
Bloom ingtcn I'anragrapa Manager
Conners spent a comparatively com
fortable day yesterday. He in fact suf
fers but little physical pain, though of
course he will be compelled to keep
very quiet. He cannot ear solid food
until after the broken bone of the jaw
has had time to knit. This will be at
least three weeks, and even after that
time he will be unable to do much act
ive work for some time. His head is
tishtly bandaged with a cloth to keep
the fractured bone in place, and he is
fed wholly on liquids through a tube
in his mouth.
Decatur's New Material.
A representative of the Decatur club
is now in Galena to discuss with Char
ley o'Day the pending question of sign
ing Coover and Mose Parrish. The an
nouncement is also made that deals for
three other players for next year have
been closed. The new men are Pitch
er Bittroff, a catcher, named Iemon,
and an infielder named Rollins. These
three were selected as the best among
a number cf offering from the Kitty
league. Though the matter is not set
tled the new men will likely be brought
on for trial this fall.
Kennedy Signed By Bloomington.
President Miller of the BIcomington
association, has signed .1. .1. Kennedy,
who lias bevii piajiijg with Springliel-J.
but whom Donnelly teleased in order
to let him go to Bloorninpton. Kenne

Like Our Team.
Decatur Herald: Really, were Deca
tur not in need of every game they
can scrape up. Rock Island would be
our choice to lay down to, as they are
all good fellows and play the game as
best they know how and,, with lets
wrangling than any other team that
has been here this year. McConnell
has a great bunch but they have play
ed anything but pennant ball in the
two games here. Decatur should have
had both by an easy margin.
CROWDS ARE TURNED AWAY
Telephone Operators Give Another Ex
The excursions given under the au
spices of the tri-city telephone oper
ators, of the Union Electric Telephone
company, yesterday afternoon and
evening on the W. W. and barge, were
a great success. Last" evening it was
impossible to accomodate the large
crowds and hundreds were turned
away at the boat landing. It has been
decided to hold another excursion to
night, and all tickets bought for last
evening's excursion, will be accepted
tonight. The boat leaves at 8:30 to
night. THE SAME
