MAY HELP DRAG CAMPAIGN
Country Highways Nearly Impassable
Mail Carriers in Trouble.
For several days the lot of the rural
mail carrier has been a hard one. The
roads have been nearly impassable and
in some instances it has been impos
sible to cover the routes each day.
This early thaw probably means a long
season of bad roads, which may in the
end be beneficial, as it will give
strength to the road drag campaign
now being waged. Dragged roads, it
has been shown, are less subject to
softening in the spring, in addition to
being far better than undragged roads
the remainder of the year.

Besides official action on the part of
the city council, Rock Island Club and

the bill before congress which proposes
a consolidation of ports of entry and

DOPE FOR THE FANS.

for the Dubuque team, thinks Mcrar

this season. Says Claude: "If our
pitchers work well this year it will be
the same tale as last season. Mc-

Barney Pelty, the old reliable twirler

The good old name "Distillers" that
has- stuck to Peoria baseball teams
through its various league experiences,
is liable to be compelled to give way
to a new appellation, for it is not at
all unlikely that the newspaper dopists
this year will be wont to call them
''Black Birds," "Undertakers," "Mourn
ers," or what not, for while on the
road the boys will be garbed in suits
of black. At a meeting of the Peoria
Amusement association, the incorpo
rated name of the company that owns
the franchise, held yesterday after
noon, it was decided that two sets of
suits for players be ordered, white for
home and black on the road. Both
suits will be trimmed in red.
