BASE BALL JOKER AT LARGE
Coins Report Springfield Papers Are
Trying to Hold Up Senators.
No field seems to be so well worked
by the jokesmith as that of baseball
dope, and in no league do more bright
specimens or numor circulate than in
the Three-Eye. Now some one has
started a report that the Springfield
newspapers have banded together and
demanded that the baseball association
pay them for printing the results of the
ames. O, turn us loose.
President Holland writes that he has
decided, after all. to submit two sched
ules for the consideration of the league,
one having Rock Island and Davenport
in separate divisions and the other a
slight variation of the one that was fa
vorably considered at Chicago.
