enough in the TLrce-Eye league io war
rant acceptance with ta-iki for it
brought about a pretty pitcher: exhibi

locjls and pitched remr.rkable ball.
The Commodores secured nine of the
safe kind during the game, and but one
after the ninth inning.

a contrast from Wednesday's. Their

landers fast short stop, was at his
best yesterday, and accepted 11 chanc

in the game holding down the third
sack in old time form.
Cook got a hit in the second inning.
McConnell sacrificed him to second.
Lakaff struck out and Swalm was up

The remaining seven innings there
was a hard fought pitchers' battle
which, was ended when Lakaff rapped
out a beautiful three base hit, the only
one made by him during the game. It
was all that was needed, for Carlisle
knocked a Jiigh one to center. Swacina
caught the ball, but the throw-in was

The Rock Island management is
considering two plans to reward La
kaff for his work of two days. Or.e is
to give him a week's vacation and the
other to let him pitch every day. The
trouble is it is so hard to decide which
would please the big fellow most.
After the fifth inning Decatur made
but one hit off Lakaff. There were but
three men on base, two of them getting
down on passes.
Decatur players made several sensa
tional catches. Murphy took the
breath of the fans away when he
speared Carlisle's short fly that every
body had thought a certain hit. Swa

Arsenal-golf links, and won by Miss
Grace French of Davenport, with a
gross score of 130, handicap of 35 giv

Davenport. Miss Hagans of the arsen

FROM THE DOPE BOX
Jack Himes. the former Rabbit, who
hit so well with St. Louis, has lost his
eye with Indianapolis, failing to get a
safe one for four days.
Cedar Rapids must be in deadly ear

thousand dollars could put Ben Davis'
hand back where it was before the ac
cident, the money could be raised in
Johnny Carr is proving a star at
short for the Springfield Central league
team. Guy Dickey says that Carr can
easily lead the league in batting.
Dickey is playing a fast game, as is
Osteen, the other ex-Three-Eye man
with the Springfields.
Peoria1 Journal: Yesterday's game
aas the 35th game of the season on the
lome grounds, not one having been
postponed for any reason. The total at
tendance' exceeds 38,000, an average of
i little over 1,000 a game. Should the
ratio continue, and there is every rea
son that it will, the season's attend
ince will considerably exceed CO.000,
the league's high water mark, made by
Springfield two years ago.

CLIMB HILL NEXT MONDAY
Automobile Test on Brady Street, Dav-J
enport. Attracts Interest.
The postponed hill climbing contest
of the Automobile club of Davenport
has been 'set for next Monday after
noon at 3 o'clock, and Secretary A. H.
Reubsam of the club announces that
it will be pulled off at that time, rain
or shine. The race will be up the
Brady street hill, from Fifth street to
the top of the hill, and the machines
will be timed only between those
points although making a flying start
from Third street. The contests will
be open to all machines, and the en
tries will be divided into three classes
Single cylinder motors.
Two cylinder motors.
Four cylinder motors and steamers.
A gold and a silver medal will be
awarded In each class, for best and
second best time. All the cars takiug
part in the contest are to carry their
usual equipment; none are to be strip
ped. No entrance fee is charged, and
it is hoped all the auto enthusiasts of
the tri-cities will take part. Entries
will close Monday noon.

the four divers have finished their
work of inspecting the hull. Material
for the work is being sent to the scene
of the wreck. It will take considerable
time to raise the vessel, and then she
