(Thanks to the intervention of President-Meidroth,
of the Peoria base ball
club, a sane schedule was adopted at
the meeting at that place yesterday
afternoon. Mr. Meld roth submitted a
compromise . agreement, which, while
It has its faults and does not take Rock
Island out of the same division as Dav
enport, is far superior to any other that
has' been offered this season. It was
adopted first by a .vote of four to three.

opposing. Afterward all asked that
tneir choice be registered - for - the
May 10. There are six conflicting
dates, Dayep port and Rock Island play
ing at home at the same time May 23-28
inclusive. ' ' " .
t developed at yesterday's meeting
that other towns than Rock Island and
Davenport found reason to criticise the
"original No. 1" schedule that had been
sent out from President Holland's of
fice. After all had been rejected by a
yote of pur Jo two, as stated exclusive
ly in yesterday's Argus, Mr. Hayes, of
Davenport, suggested that someone
outside of the league be employed to
prepare a schedule.
ConieM to Hnrnr.
But at this juhcture'President Meld
roth, of Peoria, came to the rescue and
distributed copies of a draft that 1iad
ria's interests had not been guarded as
closely as they might "have Tjeen. ;For
instance, during the month of June,
we are given 29 consecutive games.
Adding to these those allowed for May
and subtracting the total from the
number of games allowed Peoria for
the home grounds, I found that we had
left only 23 games between July 4 and
the close cf the 'season. I then began
to study out a schedule of my own. 1
figured 12 games at home and 12
games abroad for every team, and I
followed this plan in drawing up the
schedule that I will introduce."
Besides adopting a schedule, which
the ' meeting had been called to "do,
there were three amendments made to
the constitution. To do this It was
necessary to adjourn and hold a sec
ond session. The changes provide for
the use of turnstiles at parks by such
clubs as wish them, the sale of season
books if desired, and a return to the
old book system of complimentary
On behalf of the newspapers of the
league a protest was offered against
the manner in which news had been
allowed to leak out to outside papers
forcing those most interested to pub
lish "it second hand. It was argued
this contention and promised to use
hiz efforts to ?pply a remedy, ' ' : '
Early in the meeting the minutes of
the Chicago meeting as read by Secre
tary Thornier came in for criticism. It
was found that tney railed to mention
a number of important measures that
those present knew to have been pass
ed. These were corrected and finally
approved. ' ." '.'..'' "'.' ;
The motion to rejects all schedules
was made by Mr. Hayes after Presi
dent Holland had declined to rule on
the point of the constitutionality of. the
one declared adopted by mail vote.
This had been debated with consider
able spirit. " ' ' "...
The result of yesterday's meeting is
noteworthy in that it served as a sharp
rebuke for the Bloomington dope ar
tist whose efforts to give the league
something that it did not want iu the
way of a schedule anj to create arid
aggravate a misunderstanding, have
been obvious to all fair minded observ
ers. .President Holland can do much
to check this individual's capacity to
do harm, and it is believed that he is
now aware of the true state or affairs. ,

RHODES IS WINNER
Kansas City Man -Too Much foi
DECISION AFTER 15 ROUNDS
But Chicagoan Gave a Gcod Account of
Himself Rhodes Wll Challenge
Billy Rhodes of Kansas City defeated
Dick Fitzpalrick of Chicago after a
desperate battle lasting 15. rounds be,
fore the Iowa Athletic club at Lahr
mann's hall, Davenport! lasi night:
The westerner showed a wonderful
and weird style of fighting that had
Dick wholly at sea most of the jour
ney, and by his vicious attack ami
constant agrressiveness justly earned
Referee Pollock's decision.
Rhodes showed a stylo much like
that of George Gardner in his palmiest
days.. He was continually advancing
and seeking to get to close quarters.

Rock Island, 111., Feb. 16 Editor
Argus: I read in your last night's
paper a letter in regard to a petition
which is being circulated among bus
iness men. asking the mayor to tak3
the lid off. As I am one of the two
parties who are accused of committing
such a terrible offense, I am compelled
to explain to Rev. Dr. Marquis that I
am doing what I am for the best in
terest of the public in general, morally,
religiously and financially. :' I wonder
When he achieved that end he would
dig in spiteful jabs to the body, which
traveled less than six inches, and then
would rip up uppercuts which tore
through Dick's guard and jolted his
head back with sickening regularity. '
Sirong on DefpnHO.
Rhodes would bore in with head
down, taking the hot shot that Dick
sent at him. At times he appeared to
be wide open and Dick would slam
away, usually to find a glove between
his fist and tho point of his attack, or
else find that the head he aimed at
slipped out of range.
Dick tried hard and landed many
hard ones to the head and body. Once
in the eighth round Dick staggered
Rhodes with a hard right on the jaw.
Then Rhodes showed some freak stall
ing. He kept his heaj and his long
left outstretched. Dick followed him
around the ring and trifcd hard to land
a knockout, but was unable to do so.
When they came out for the next
round Dick started rushing, but found
Rhodes waiting for him and ready to

Soon the t!de of battle shifted back
again, Rhodes hushed Dick along the

were prior to Nov. 20, 1905; that it is
the laboring man and mechanic who
want that accommodation Sunday, and
they want it badly. To illustrate that
I know what I am talking about, I can
show that twice the number of people
want that accommodation on Sunday
that do any other day in the week.'
I find no trouble at all to get busi
ness men to sign that petition. On the
contrary, they are all, with very few
exceptions, very eager to do so, and I
am satisfied in my own mind that it is
the will of an overwhelming majority
of the people of our city to have things
restored to where they were.
I have lived in this city (with the
exception of a few years, when I was
engaged with thousands of others in
restoring the union) for 46 years, and
have always tried to help build up our
town,' and as I am so deeply Interested
in the Velfare of our city; I am happy
to say that the people are still awake
and signing the petition.

Dick on the run again. Again in the
12th round Dick made a spurt and
shook Rhodes up with a r.'gut to the
jaw, but Rhodes came back quickly
wtlh renewed strength and evened
matters up again. At the end of the
round he was the aggressor and was
chasing Dick around the ring.
Rhodes is a rough fighter and w-as
warned -several times for heeling in the
early part of the' fight.
Dick also was warned for fouling,
hitting Billy low with a right" swing,
which, however, did not hurt him.
Rhodes opened up a deep cut on Dick's
face in the 11th round and soon FItz's
face was covered with blood. Rhodes
played on this spot' to the end and
kept the wound open.
Rhodes great reach gave him a big
advantage over FItzpatrIck in the
clinches; he would slam away to the
kidneys when Dick thought he was out
of reach. He would even land on
Dick's face from behind, so long were
his arms, when they were clinched.
But his coolness and aggressiveness
were tho best things about his fighting.
He would stick that long left Into
Dick's face lightly, fiddle around and
play for an opening.' When it came
he was quick as a' flash to take advan
tage of it and would rush in close and
begin his fusillade on the body.
Like Gardner, Rhodes relied on wear
ing an opponent down to beat him. In
the clinches he works those short jabs
and fierce uppercuts to perfection and
keeps his man guessing continually all
