season closed. He stated that he has
made from $20 to $30 a week,: which,
with the salary he can earn next sum
mer as a player In the "amateur"
league of Chicago will exceed anything
that he could make in the Three-Eye
league. A deal had been on by which
LIppert was to go to Decatur in ex
change for Swaclna.
The Peoria ..association has been
working hard to get the three"newspa
pers to recognize the fact tjiat Peoria
has a franchise in the Three-Eye
league. Previously the national game
has been wholly ignored during the
winter season and only casually noted
during the summer. Now it is hoped
that there will be a reform." -
Says the Bloomington Fantagraph:
There will be much amusement around
the Three-Eye circuit over the walls
emanating from Davenport and Rock
Island for the old time schedule by
which Rock Island and Davenport are
placed in different circuits. Hayes of
Davenport, is running a column story
BUNCH OF BEAUTIES IN "THE SHO GUN."
in the Times each day giving reasons made on it, and it was duo to the ex
why the two cities should be kept ' ccllence of the cast, the beauty 'of the
apart. Last fall at the Dubaqu3 meet-j production and the worth of the lyrics
Ing when It was voted to keep those
cities in the same circuit, he thougtt
that the idea was 'a good one and cal
culated to save the league an immense
sum in tra-veling expenses, hotel bills
and in loss through open dates. ' Now
he is going so far as to suggest the
idea of splitting the eastern and west
ern series into Jialves so lha the east
ern teams will make 12 trips to the
west instead of three, quadrupling the
mileage and hotel bills, not to speak of
the wear upon players by incessant
traveling. It is safe to say that the
other six cities will insist on the orig
inal arrangement regardless of the
kicks by Davenport and Rock Island.
It is probable that the clause in the
constitution which requires an attend
ance of 30.000 per annum 4o ensure
membership, is worrying Hayes and
Sexton. Hayes' complaints, since his
faux pas In regard to 21 consecutive
games, made probably without giving
the schedule any serious study, will
probably not receive much encourage
ment around the circuit.
Jacksonville, which has several
times been mentioned as a possibility
in the Three-Eye league has now ahont
concluded to join the K. I. T. league.
This will give a circuit composed of
Cairo, East St. Louis. Paducah, Jack
sonville, Vincennes and Danville.
