Dubuque, Iowa, June G. Davidson's
rowdy tactics in knocking the ball out
of McConnell's hand in the ninth in
ning, thereby being called safe by Um

the Islanders had one tally and looked
the winners. But in the ninth Swalm
of Dubuque got on through an error
and hits following by Davidson and
Hadley with the former's dirty work,
resulted in two runs and decided the
game with two out.

DOPE FOR THE FANS.
Whitey Alperman, it is announced,
will from now on be a fixture at second
with Brooklyn. Admirers at Pittsburg
recently made him a present of a cost
ly gold watch.
Manager Kennedy says he will soon
be able to get back in the game; It is
presumed he will be discreet enough to
vait till after the present home series.
Now the Boston Nationals are out
after the record recently made by the
Boston Americans when the latter lost
20 games in succession. The Nationals
have now dropped 17 consecutive con
tests. Eugene McGreevy, who has been
handling the indicator at Cedar Rapids
of late in the absence of a regular um
pire, is said to be seeking a place on
President Holland's staff.
President Holland has issued an or
der preventing ball players from' issu
ing passes to friends. It Is said that
the practice has been abused this sea
son, and in order to prevent- trouble for
local managements the edict was Is
sued. So far as. Harry Swalm himself was
concerned, Rock Island had him

ton claimed to have signed, will not be

bunch. He is going to join the Island

from the present trip oa the road. Car
