tween Two Cities."
President. Holland this afternoon tel
egraphed President Sexton, of. the lo
cal baseball association, that he had
called a special meeting of the Three
Eye league for next Thursday at'Peo
ria to consider the schedule question.
Of all the strange things that have
happened in base ball probably none
bears the stamp of . peculiarity in a
more marked degree than the latest
phase of the . Three-Eye schedule deal.
I -a at evening President, Sexton receiv
ed a message from President Holland
which said: "Majority vote received
President Sexton last night immedi
ately wrote a protest in which he as-
scucu uis ueciti iiiai iutj scueuuiers
said to have "been adopted was illegal
in that it had been voted down at the
.Chicago meeting' and bad never been
resubmitted. He questioned also
whether under the constitution of the
league it Is' proper to adopt a schedule
by' a mall vote, let alone one by tele
phone. Mr. Holland was told that
Rock Island and Davenport would not
stand for this sort of proceeding.
This morning Mr. Holland was com
municated with by telephone and the
Orst protest supplemented. He was
asked to call a meeting, as the consti
tution empowers him to do, for the
consideration of the schedule question
and if he did not he was informed that
Rock Island and Davenport would
make an effort to secure the concur
rence of four clubs in a call for a
meeting, making it legal. It Is desir
ed that the meeting be held at the ear
liest possible date. Mr. Holland agreed
Jo take the matter under consideration
and give a reply by Monday morning.

for original schedule as adopted at
Chicago meeting." This was the first
direct intimation that the local man
agement had that the schedule men
tioned had been submitted. Of course,
no vote had been sent from here. Dav
enport had submitted no choice, and
it is believed that Decatur had not.
The result is that an emphatic protest
has been forwarded by Rock Island and
Davenport In which the legality as well
as the injustice of the procedure is
Talk to Ilerlnc.
Yesterday, President Sexton, in con
versing with Wilson Behring, of Deca
tur, by phone, learned incidentally that
President Holland had been endeavor
ing to secure Decatur's consent to the
adoption of the original schedule. Hol
land said be had four clubs and wanted
a fifth to make It carry. Decatur had
not voted and on learning that Rock
Island and Davenport aro both opposed
to the schedule. Mr. Bering said he
would not support It. Mr. Hayes was
informed by phone several days ago
that the Chicago schedule had been
suggested as better than either of the
ones submitted to the league and told
by president to notify the Rock Island
iport. In other "words both teams play
j at home at the same time on 4S days.
There are conflicts on the opening day
and on eight Sundays, as well as on
39 week days. The saving in mileage
over last year's schedule is so slight
that if there is a loss of an average of
CO in attendance daily here and in
Davenport the saving made in mileage
will be overcome. These are facts
borne out by the figures. That there
will be a loss of much more than CO
on an average there is not the slightest
doubt, and the effect cannot fail to be
disastrous financially to Rock Island
and Davenport, but to the league as
well under the rule by which holiday
and Sunday receipts are pooled.

that the S-hour rule for carriers shall
apply to substitutes as well as the reg

the routes shall be carried in 8 hours,
and impose the penalty of suspension
for failure to complete the route in the
required time. This rule was formerly
in force, but owing to the difficulty o.f
tho substitutes to carry the mail in 8

allowed as long a time as necessary tc
