JOE HOULIK A NEW
Comes From Oxford Junction, Iowa
Wilson's Shoulder Shows No
Another new pitcher was announced
by the Rock Island management today
He Is Joe Houlik, who has been pitch
ing at Oxford Junction, Iowa, and who
was with Cedar Rapids before the be
ginning of the present season, but was
released without trial. He arrived in
the city today. Wilson's shoulder does
not appear to have improved. If any
thing he is in worse shape than when
he left home, and it may be that he
will be out for the remainder of the
season. President Sexton denied
rumor that apieared in a SpringfieU
paper this morning to the effect that
Vandine had been traded for Burg, the
Springfield third baseman.
GIANTS PLAY BUT
Pulliam's Umpires Admitted by New
York Management and Cheered
New York, Aug. 9. The New York
Giants came out In the open yesterday
and played the Chicago Cubs, but they
might as well have forfeited another
game, for they were squarely beaten.
3 to 2, by the league leaders. The Chi
cagos traveled over to Brooklyn last
night, having taken three out of four
games on the Polo grounds, and left
the humbled socalled giants In deep
disgrace, seven games and a half be
hind the top-notchers.
After Tuesday's tumultuous scent, in
cidental to the barring of Umpire John
stone from the field by the New York
club, and the forfeiting of the game to
Chicago by the Giants, some of the
crowd expected more exciting scenes
yesterday afternoon, but there was
none. On the other hand, Umpires
Emslle and Johnstone, especially the
latter, were received with genuine en
thusiasm by the fans, who gathered
early, and in that manner voiced their
disapproval and disgust at the un
sportsmanlike attitude of the local
club on the day before.
Date of Next Poultry Show.
The date for the next poultry show
to be held under the auspices of the
Trl-City Fanciers' association has been
set for Dec. 22 and 23. The show will
be held at Armory hall. Davenport.
The judges selected for the show are
W. C. Harnock of Geneseo, 111., and A.
L. Tedrick. of Ottumwa, Iowa.

rnthusiasm there for the local meet at
fever heat. The big dailies have ar
ranged for the presence of their golf
reporters in the city and the results
will be featured in the sporting col
umns. Probably 40 members of the
local club will compete for the prizes.

The arsenal links are in the best

Automobile services to the entrances

The new battery, Howard and Za
lusky, will probably wdrk tomorrow in
the first game here.
Meidroth has a chance to sell Thiery
to a Southern league team. Better let
him go before it Is too late.
Peoria planned a big reception with
band and all other trimmings for the
team on its arrival at the home city
this morning. Nothing is too good for
Buclow's bunch now that they have
become serious contenders for the pen
nant. Springfield is here for the last time
this season. Tomorrow there will be
a double header, the first game being
called at 2:30. Decatur comes Sun
day and it will likewise be the last ap
pearance of the Commodores on the
Rock Island diamond this year.
The Decatur lineup has been chang
ed by switching Swacina to first base
In place of "Kuhn, who has not been
doing well with the stick this season,
and whose ginger has entirely disap
peared. Fleming goes from right to
center and Syfert to right.
Rock Island players interviewed on
their return today, say that Umpire
Wheelock deliberately gave the second
game to Springfield yesterday. No
balls were called until the ninth in
ning, when, after Lakaff had held the
Senators without a run for 16 innings.
Wheelock, it is stated, called balls
on L.akanr until ne iorcea me
winning run in.
Fair minded baseball - fans every
where will rejoice that President Pul-
Ilam of the National league sustained
his point in the controversy with New
York over the umpire questton. If
Mujresy McGraw had won out it would
have been a blow nigh fatal to organ
ized baseball. Such men as McGraw,
not to mention Thiery and some others
in the Three-Eye. are a constant men
ace to the permanency of the sport and
ought to bo barred from- the diamond.
Neal did not report today as expect
ed. Last evening President Sexton re
ceived a letter from the Rock Island
twlrler at Atkinson stating that an ex
amination had been made of the play
er by a, physician and it was discovered
that two ribs were fractured. This
must have resulted from a collision in
which Neal was injured recently at
Cedar Rapids. This really accounts
for the poor showing he made in the
last games twirled. It is hoped he will
be able to go to work again at the end
of another week
A dispatch from Cincinnati says:
When shown a dispatch from Spring
field. III., this afternoon to the effect
that the Cincinnati baseball club has
offered $2,000 for the release of Elijah
Jones, a pitcher now playing with the
Springfield club of the Three Eye
league. President Hermann of the
Reds, said: "This Is news to me. I
don't know that anyone with authority
from me has made the Springfield team
an offer for Jones. Manager Hanlon
has not told me that he needs another
pitcher, and until he does so I don't
think we will buy any more. Jones
may be making a good record with the
Springfield team, but I don't think he
will do for the Reds."
The Decatur Herald tells it plainly
to the home fans In an interview with a
member of the directory of the team in
which he says: "We have had an ele
gant sufficiency of shouldering heavy
losses by reason of our attempt to give
the people of Decatur good baseball
and now we intend to pass It up to
somebody else or let It drop entirely
Some may think we are showing cold
feet because of the poor success of the
team this year, but this is far from
right. When the fact is taken into con
sideration that we few men are com
pelled to stand about $2,000 loss this
season, I think everyone will see
where we are justified In our decision
to give It up." The present officers
mean to quit at the end of the season.
A large share of the blame for failing
to have a winning team this year is
placed upon the heads of the players
who are said to be working solely for
their individual records and neglecting
