Springfield at Dubuque.
Davenport at Bloornington.
McFariand's Commodores pulled the
Islanders down a notch yesterday by
a score of 2 to 1. Hardy was in the box
tor the visitors, and was too much for
the Islanders. Not only is he a pitcher
and a worker, but he has a way of
frightening the umpires and making
good in that manner. He had Law
rence buffaloed right yesterday and
as telling him what to say all through
the game. The old man would call one
for Hardy and when he saw how the
crowd took it he would make an at
tempt to square it. Ali of which added
to the interest of the contest, when the
nun did not know whether to strike at
a ball or nor. on either side.
McConneli's absence from the game
was to be noticed on several occasions,
and, although Eng as a rule works well,
he appeared to be not right yesterday,
and this weakened the Islanders some
what, The Commodores wue fticeess

Eads was in the box for the Island
its. and while he pitched a good game,
his fielding could Ik- improved. Al
though his opponents carried away
nine hits, some of these were very
much on the scratch order, and a?
least one of them was on account ot
liis own inactivity in fielding, the ball
not going out of the diamond.

Each side counted in the first in

first up and drew a pass. After steal
ing second he scored oti a two bast
hit by .McFarland. In the next half
Carlisle singled and stole second, and
a two bast- hit by Shaub brought him
In the third the head of the Commo
dore batting list was up again and
Thornton singled. A double by I.e-wee
allowed him to complete the circuit.

his third appearance in the fifth with

MINOR MAGNATE IS OUT
Howard Griffith, Baseball Disturber,
Put Under the Ban.
Cincinnati. Ohio, Aug. 16. After the
national baseball commission had been
ailed to order yesterday afternoon a
resolution recitiug recent action of the
National association in regard to How
ard Griffiths, was read, in which it was
announced that Griffiths had L. t n
"summarily i moved" from ail connee
tion with the National association from
the national board of arbitration. In
view of this fact the base ball commis
sion decided that as the individual
against whom charges had been made
was no longer connected with base ball
the ease was no longer bt fore the com
mission mi. I it was therefore finally
stricken from the records.
The commission had met to hear the
charge of Judge Kavanaugh, president
of the Southern league and member of
the national loard of arbitration,
against Howard Griffiths, also a mem
ber of the National Association of Pro
fessional Base Ball clubs, charging
him with conspiring to break "the na
tional agreement by seeking to array
ill the minor leagues against the Na
tional and American leagues unless cer
tain concessions were granted to minor
Some weeks ago the commission pre
pared to try Mr. Griffiths, but he se
cured an injunction to prevent such
action. This was in Cleveland. It was
feared that another injunction would
be served at the meeting today to pre
vent the hearing of the charges of

New Bloornington Fielder. Hagle,
another fielder, has joined the Bloorn
ington team. He formerly played with
the Vicksburg team of the Southern
league, along with Hackett. and was
secured by President Miller on the re
commendation of Hackett. Hagle's
home is at Jacksonville. He has a
good record as a hitter.
Walters Improving. Hank Walt rs
is much improved in condition and
was able to sit up for a few hours this
week. It is expected that he will re
cover rapidly and that he may be re
moved to his home in Louisville, Ky.

the loss of Godwin and Conners, as

and runs in every game.
Better Be Careful About Changes.
Quincy will be an applicant for a fran
chise in the Three-Eye at the meeting
this winter and will be prepared, it is
reported, to put up a cash forfeit with
the league that it will play out rex;
year. Quincy fcas not "Lad league ba'.i

Peoria. Quincy, Burlington and Rock
Island? What about poor old Daven
port? Meek on Bench. At a meeting of the
Waterloo Base Ball association held
last night, it was decided to relieve
Meek of the management of the team,
pending the investigation of the charg
es of insubordination and indifferent
playing. Meek has been fined $."0 and
pat on the bench indefinitely without
pay. It was decided to take this action
when Meek got sore on account of an
error made by one of the in fielders in
yesterday's game, after which he Jelib
erately threw the ball away into center
field. Outfielder Lohr has been appoint
ed captain of the team for the remain
der of the season.

Grave Trouble Foreseen.
It needs but little foresight, to tell,
that when your stomach and liver are
badly affected, grave trouble is ahead,
unless you take the proper medicine
for voiir disease, as Mrs. John A.
Young, of Clay, N. Y., did. She says:
"I had neuralgia of the liver and stom
ach, my heart was weakened, and I
could not eat. I was very ba I for a
long time, but in Electric Bitters,' I
found Just what I needed, for they
quickly relieved and cured me." Best
