ally made arrangements to play an ex

day. Secretary Bering of the Decatur
team makes the . cheering announce
mem that the team from that city will
be in the hole $2,000 this season.
Decatur Herald: A couple of mem
bers of the Rock Island team did not
accompany the club to Springfield Sat
urday night, preferring to remain over
till the next morning in order to fill
a date they had made with a couple of
Decatur girls. However, they were
sorely disappointed in. their date. The
girls decided that they had other, fish
to fry and left the two Islander play
ers standing on a certain corner a
couple of hours waking for them in
Dubuque Telegraph: Forsooth, it
would seem as if those who were clam
oring for a shake-up in the linkup of
the Miners were about to have their
eager wishes- gratified, inasmuch as
there is a well defined rumor emanat
ing from a very excellent source to the
effect that within a very few days there
will be at least three new faces on the
team. Even the position to be filled by
these new players have been given out,
but for the time being it is thought
best to withhold these. For the bene
fit of those of the baseball enthusiasts
who doubt the fact that the manage
ment of the club has been making
earnest efforts to strengthen the team,
be it known that only last week $1,500
was offered in an endeavor to land
three players who were found to be
desirous. The handsome considera
tion of $750 was held out for. one oft
the trio, and $750 for the other two. It
was found impossible, however, to se
cure their services.

ASKS FOR RELEASE
Milton Wires President Sexton
He Can Be of No Use
HE AND OWSLEY ARE DROPPED
Carlisle Again Stricken With Fever
Team Plays at Springfield To
morrow. The Rock Island baseball manage
ment has released both Milton and
Owsley, the two pitchers recently sign
ed to help out the regular staff In its
present crippled condition. Milton, was
let go at his own suggestion, a most
manly one, by the way, and one that
does credit to his- honor as a ball play
er. After the game he lost at Decatur
he wired President Sexton that he
feared he could do the Islanders no
good and felt that a stronger man had
better be secured. Though he was
signed at a high salary he evidently
realized that either his condition was
not up to his old standard or that the
league pace was faster than in the
days of old and he did not wish to be
a burden. Owsley was let go for the
reason that he does not appear to have
the goods for this league.
CarllMle .bhId M-k.
Added to the discouraging situation
:n the pitching department comes word
that Carlisle has again been stricken
with fever, his temperature being 10C
at last accounts. He is In Springfield,
iiut ol course, will not be able to play.
As the ailment has been hanging on for
some time, it may mean a serious ill
ness this t!me.
Matters were net brightened a bit
by receipt of news from Manager Mc
Connell this morning that it was still
raining at Springfield with the pros
pects poor for a game today. Of
course, the team will be held at the
capital tomorrow and if the weather
will permit a double header may be
played. Though tomorrow is an off
day, it is likely that all the teams wil;
be engaged if possible.
Last Four Weeks of "The Lion and
Charles Klein's intensely interesting
play of .American life has achieved the
greatest success ever known in the his
tory of American theatricals at the
Illinois theater, Chicago. This up-to
date play which has been holding Chi
cago audiences spellbound for the past
three months is now playing the last
four weeks of its stay at the Illinois
theater, the engagement pos'tively
ending Saturday evening. Sept. 1. As
the company is booked in Boston to
openi Sept. 3, these four remaining
weeks will be the last opportunity for
out-of-town patrons to witness the
most successful play in years. "The
Lion and the Mouse" is given nightly
Sundays included, with matinees ev
ery Wednesday and Saturday. The
matinees are over at 4:30 p. m., and
the evening performances at 10:30 p.
m., which allows ample time for visit
ors to the city to catch returning trains.
The play is by Charles Klein, the au
thor of "The Music Master," and is a
drama that deals with a widely discuss
ed topic of the hour that of the influ
ence wielded by the money power In
American politics today. Its dominant
personage is- John Burkett Ryder, the
acknowledged leader of the financial
world, in which he is known as "Ready
Money" Ryder. The coterie of mon
eyed magnates, of which he is the
head, has been halted in its career by
an adverse decision rendered by Judge
Rossmore, a man of stern probity in
the administration of the office to
which the people have elected him. In
retaliation Ryder and his friends se
cure with the aid of corrupt politicians,
Judge Rossmore's temporary suspen
sion from the bench because of alleged
fraudulent practices. Ills daughter
Shirley, summoned home from Europe,
returns to find her father dishonored,
bankrupt and broken in health. Ryder

alone Is In possession of the proof of
her father's innocence and she deter
mines to secure It from him. Through
an Ingeniously plausible chain of cir
cumstances she becomes a member of
the Ryder household, winning the af
fections of every member, and becom
ing invaluable to Ryder. She has con
cealed her identity under the name of
Shirley Green. Her secret is known
only to Jefferson' Ryder, the son of the
money king. Jefferson has fallen in
love with Shirley, whom he met on the
voyage from Europe. He is in sym
pathy with her purpose, even although
Lhe consummation means the defeat, of
his father. The struggle between the
''lion" and the "mouse" is rapidly ap
proaching a climax, when the love
story of Jefferson and Shirley sudden
ly assumes a vital issue in. a situation
that is strikingly but logically drama
tic. Mr. Klein has brought about the
happy termination of Shirley's romance
and her triumph without straining at
the possibilities, but with a finely com
mendable logic. Many of the players
assembled by Mr. Harris for the pro
luction here are pronounced favorites.
The cast includes Gertrude Coghlan,
Arthur Byron, Joseph Kiigour, George
Parsons, Grace Thorne, Flora Juliet
Bowlcy, Edward See, Iouise Compton.
