By making two scores in the eighth
inning the Islanders took an exciting
game from Davenport yesterday, making
it two out of three in the series. Six in
nings were played without a count, and
then by a pass, a sacrifice and a hit CmStis
was brought around and the one run
looked big in a game like that. But the
Islanders were not so easy and a three
bagger by Wanner assisted materially
in making it a tie. In the eighth a hit
combined with errors put MeConnell's
men on the safe side and the rest was
Scott vh. linker.
Johnny Baker has been quite suc
cessful against the Islanders this sea
son, apparently having something on
all of the heavy hitters. But he was
comparatively easy for them yesterday,
and the wonder Is that there were not
several scores made on him earlier in
the game, six hits having been made
in the first four innings.
Scott was in good working order and
kept the six hits scattered in six differ
ent innings. Baker struck out more
men, but Scotty worked more steadily,
giving only one pass.
Stnrt In Seventh.
Scotty gave Curtis a base on balls
in the seventh. It was the only one he
gave, but it started all of the trouble,
which finally wound tip in the undoing
of Davenport, llarrod sacrificed and
Bennett hit to left center, bringing the
It was then up to somebody and
Wanner happened to be that somebody.
The ball went to right field and Johnny
went to third base. Vandine hit one to
Petie Burg and was caught at first.
Wanner took the chance and iu the ef
fort to catch him at the plate, Nieman
dropped the ball.
I'ioiMb in KiKhth.
It was finished in the eighth. Rudd
was hit by a pitched ball, and stole
second base. Cook hit a nice one over
the infield to left and stole second
Burg booted one from McConnell and
the bases were full with nobody out.
Davy Crockett lost one that Scotty put
down to him and Rudd came in, every
body else moving up. McConnell
thought Cook would go in on Crockett's
error and was clear down to third base.
Cook seeing this made a break for the
plate and kept them working until Mc
Connell got back pretty well, but it
looked as though he had got into a trap
himself. The Burghers threw the ball
back and forth until Nieman made a drop
kick and everybody landed safely, where
they were in the first place. Swalm
put a long fly into right field and Cook
counted. The score:

Davy Crockett went to sleep twice.
Flaherty is simply incorrigible.
Rock Island's hitting was consistent
yesterday in filling up the bases but
not in clearing them, especially in the
early part of the game.
Rudd plays first base like a veteran.
Johnny Wanner easily caught Ramey

The inevitable result of the lack of
baseball spirit shown by the people of
Davenport is at hand. Something must
be done at once or the franchise of
that city will be surrendered. Manag
er Hayes is not to blame. He cannot
be expected to wreck himself financial
ly to carry a team that the city will not
patronize, even though it is playing
good ball and winning about half its
In a statement made by Dan B.
Home, the situation is clearly given.
Mr. Hayes has suggested to Mr. Home
that the latter form a stock company
to take over the team and its effects,
which the present owner agrees to sell
at a' price t: cover inertly the amount
now on deposit with the league, the
price that has already been offered for
a number of players, and a small com
pensation for the lease of the grounds.
Wteiilil Keep Te:uit.
Mr. Hayes stated that he was ad
verse to seeing the team taken away
from Davenport and realized that if he
should be compelled to forfeit or dis
pose of his franchise to some other
city, the baseball fans would realize
too late what their attitude ha 1 cost
and would undoubtedly blame the pres
ent owner for it all.
Mr. Home has called upon t ho bus
iness men to come forward and aid
him in his plan to finance the team
and continue its existence in Daven
port. Profound agitation has been
caused by the revealing of the real
conditions but whether it will go deep
enough to reach the pocket books of
has ball supporters across the river re
mains to be seen.
It is a well known fact that Burling
ton is one of the strongest bidders for
a place in the Three-Eye and it is un
do stood that that city is ready to pay
a good price fer the Davenport fran
chise. A number of other cities would
he glad to have a chance to come in.
A meeting has been called at the
Davenport Commercial clu'j rooms to
morrow evening at which the proposi
tion of Mr. Hayes will be considered.
