AFTER THE FRAY I
All Is Now Peace. -As the Argus
suggested the day following the close
of the Three-Eye season.' all is now
peace in the kague. President Sex
on's letter of congratulation to Presl
lent Keeley of th Dubmpie local su
-ociation. has brought the desired end.
The Dubuque Telegraph-Herald de
clares the axe is buried. So let it re
mainuntil the opening of another
baseball season at least. But the Telegraph-Herald
indulges in an utiwax
ranted criticism of The Argus, when
It attributes to it anything of a per
sonal nature in the exception taken to
Dubuque's course during the season.
The Argus' comments were devoted en
tirely to the lack of enthusiasm and
interest in Dubuque, especially for a
town represented by so strong a team.
No mention was ever made, either ol
President Ketley or the club, except to
refer to the players as "wanderers"
after they were driven from Lome
through lack of ai tendance. On the
oiher h?iid, the Du!uque papers made
scurrilous personal attacks on Presi
dent Sexton, which Thd Argus saw fit
to defend him against. When Du
buque ha& had more exptiit-nce in pro
fessiona baseball it will know hotter
than to take too much a, heart the
things that are said during the heat of
a pennant race, especially where it Is
as close as it was between Rock Island
and that city this year. Another thing
that Dubuque should karn. and that is
that where it has on its team a mis
chief maker of the Thiery type, who is
not only a source of disturbance in the
team itself, but throughout the league
he Is very apt to get the club into dis
favor wherever it goes. Xot alone in
Rock Island, but in every city in the
league his cackle, as well as his be
havior has been the occasion for dis
agreeable comment. But all this aside,
the Dubuque association ought not to
take too seriously the attitude of the
papers in other cities. There were
many unkind things said about Rock
Island in many of the cities of the
league during the time the fight was
on, but such comments should be re
garded as the incidents of a campaign
to be lost sight of when if is over.
Baseball, like politics, brings out con
troversies that should be forgotten
when the issues that arouse them are
