with a band previous to entering the
practice preceding the game.
All of the opening games are being

DOPE FOR THE FANS.
The Three-Eye Jeague is not the only
one to open today. The Kitty and
Wisconsin leagues also are playing
their first games. The Iowa league is
now the only one in the central west
that has not inaugurated the season.
Yesterday the Western league made
a favorable start.
A slight injury to his hand in slid
ing to home plate in an amateur game
a few days ago, caused the death yes
terday at St. Louis of Roy D. Tremain
at St. Louis, lockjaw having resulted
from the accident.
Looie Gruebner wants to get away
from Bloomington, as there is no place
for him in the infield and he does not
aspire to an outfield job. He is a
cracking good ball player and will be
kept for a time as utility man.
Bloomington has released Orville
Selby, tlje pitcher. Ott will probably
be farmed to the Northern league, go
ing with Leighty, who has been taken
by Grand Forks. The Bloomington
management has suspended Barker,
Donovan, Blackburn, Jones and Kline
for failure to report when directed.
Deratnr is pining for outfielders,
Swacina being the only one satisfying.
Foster, given a trial, was released yes
terday. Swacina, Coovcr and Lemon
will be used temporarily, the latter be
ing the change catcher.
Howard Cassiloine, who was given
a trial by Rock Island and Davenport
two years ago, and who has been in
the Iowa league since, has now signed
to manage the Houghton, Mich., team
Reagan has finally declined all of
fers of Dubuque for this season and re
turned to Chicago, it is supposed, to
play outlaw ball, probably in Jimmy
Dubuque has released Fleming, the
pitcher, and he will catch on with Dan
ville in the K. I. T. league.

HORTON BOBS UP
Vily Colonel Who Left in Midd'e
of Racing Week Back
8ELVIDERE HIS LAST STCP
Was Scheduled to Go to Rockford
All Dates Canceled for Present
and He Is Away Again.
Colonel H. V. Horton, who disappear
ed from Rock Island between two days
in the midst of a week of running
races that he had opened at the track
of the Twin-City Driving association
here, has appeared in Illinois and
again bidden a hasty adieu. Previous
to coming to Illinois he was in Bt-loit,
Wis. From there lie went to Belvi
dere, and was scheduled to open ut
Rockford a week or more later. But
tliis time Belvidere was Waterloo and
Horton .was told "skidoo," and that
was the end of the colonel.
Alnnyn Come Hack.
The wily colonel comes north and
works a few stunts and then makes his
getaway, and after allowing a couple
of years to pass, he bobs up again, and
alighting in some other green spot, he
proceeds to do business. He came to
Rock Island in the summer of 1901
and announced that he would open a
series of running races and had horses
coming in all directions. They came.
The racing went well enough the first
day and the second, but in the middle
of the week things were not so rosy,
the races came slowly, and it was
charged that they were dragged so
that it would be too dark for the last
one, and the purse offered would be
Eavcd by the management. Anyhow,
the next afternoon there was no man
ager of the advertised "Rock Island
Jockey club." Investigation proved
that Colonel H. V. Horton had chang
ed his mail address, but not informed
anybody here what it would be in the
Colonel Horton lives high. He came
here several weeks before the proposed
race meeting, and with his wife an
child staid at the Harper house. He
also had with him a secretary, and was
apparently enjoying nil of the comfort
of life without a great deal of effort
When he left, there was behind him a
board bill as well as other obligations
that are still outstanding.
