The personal bondsman is fast
becomin2 obsolete ; the risk to pri
vate fortune is too great.
The corporate bond is just as rap
idly supplanting the old form ; and,
in time, men will marvel that they
were ever called upon to incur the
danger of personal suretyship.
In point of safety, convenience and
, propriety, there can be no com
parison between the two ; the one
is just as weak and perilous as the
Other is strong and safe.
The time is near when it will be
thought as reasonable to borrow
the key of a friend's safe as to
borrow his name for surety pur

Knox College Takes Initiative
Among Schools of West In
SUBSTITUTION FOR FOOTBALL
Abandons Old Schedule and Expects to
Make New One With Schools of
Galesburg, 111., Sept. 21. Yesterday
Knox college took the initiative among
western colleges in adopting socker or
association football in place of the
regulation game played for years. The
initial steps were taken at a meeting
of the Knox College Atheltic associa
tion, where th subject was thorough
ly discussed by members of the facul
ty and the athletic team. The leading
members of the football team advocat
ed the idea of socker football.
President McClelland, who is an ad
mirer of the association game, an
nounced his hearty sympathy with the
change and said he had received let
ters from other western colleges rela
tive to such a movement. He felt that
if .Knox took the step other colleges
of the west would soon follow. He be
lieved that parents who had sons in
college would be greatly pleased if the
socker game were adopted. He would,
he said, be very proud to have the
college adopt this type of football, in
asmuch as it limited the dangers of
Abandon Old Sthdule.
The schedule of games made out
for the old system was abandoned.
Steps will be immediately taken to
form a schedule with other colleges
based on the association game. Pres
ident McClelland expressed the great
est pleasure over the decision of the.
students and it is generally approved

SILER SUES FOR $50,000
Referee Sues Nolan and Nelson for
Chicago, Sept. 21. George Slier, who
refereed the Nelson-Gans bout at Gold
field, Ner., returned to Chicago yester
day. After getting the alkali dust out
of his eyes he asked the superior court,
through his attorney, Robert Cantwell,
to award him $50,000 damages from
Battling Nelson and his manager,
"Billy" Nolan, for alleged slander. The
suit is an aftermath of the Goldfield
fight, after which Nolan is alleged to
have declared that Siler was "fixed" to
give the decision to Gans. "The fight
is a matter of history, now," said Siler.
last night, "and I have nothing to add'
to what I have already said. Nelson
fouled Gans as plain as dayand every

OPENS OLD SORE
Peoria Expected to Set Up Wail

STOPS EXHIBITION SERIES
Secretary Farrell Sends Instructions to
.Holland on Ground Chicagoans
Now li6ten for a fresh roar from
Peoria. President Jlolland, acting un
der . instructions from Secretary Far
rell of the national baseball commis
sion, has notified Peoria that no more
games will be allowed with the Logan
Squares, that aggregation being held
outlaws. The third of a series of four
games with the Chicago team had been
played yesterday and the last was to
have been played today. We shall ex
pect to hear all kinds of noises from
Peoria way now. It may be necessary
to' have another investigation before it
As a matter of fact Peoria ought to
have known what it was about when
the outlaw team was taken for a ser
ies. What constitutes baseball out
lawry was thought to have been made
pretty clear at the recent meeting
held there. It was shown that the Chi
cago team is outside the national
agreement when Jimmy Calahan, him
self was denied the right to finish the
season withe Chicago White Sox.
Will Ilnve Eicunf.
Probably Peoria proceeded on the
theory tfiat the team was not playing
any longer as a member of a league,
the contests being exhibition ones
merely and therefore national agree
ment rules would not hold good. It
should be borne in mind however, that
a baseball player is always under the
rules and is not supposed to give aid
or comfort to the enemy under any
circumstances. The rules are also be
ing violated in playing George Hughes
who Is under suspension.
.In the game yesterday' the Logan
Squares won again, thus taking two out
of three. The score follows:
Logan Squares .11000104 07 9 2

ager of the play. It will be seen here
soon with Miss Florence Gear in the
Is Marked Departure. The produc
tion of "The Greater Love," with Au
brey Bouciccault as Mozart, which
Walter N. Lawrence is sending out
this season, will be a marked depart
ure from the dramatic offerings of the
past. The play which is a four act
drama by Ivy Ash ton Root, niece of
Elihu Root, secretary of state, is so
constructed as to admit of interpola
tions of the most famous selections
from Mozart's works. These will be
rendered during the performance by
15 instrumentalists and eight operatic
solo:sts. The play is well acted by a
large and capable company. To both
the lover of the drama and the patron
of music and opera this play should
both be a delight and pleasure. It is
the attraction at the Grand opera
house. Davenport, where it comes to
morrow. The production will be the
same in every particular that was r,o
favorably received when it was pre
sented at the Madison Square theater,
New York city, last season.
"The Little Honestead." The new
attraction at the Illinois theater Sun
day will be "The Little Homestead,"
a delightfully refreshing and sweetly
simple story with strong situations
and an abundance of the other requi
sites which go to make up a whole
some and interesting play. It is from
the pen of V. B. Patton, and in the
Island City Park.

displayed itself not alone in the lines
and speeches and situations, but in the
types of persons he cleverly carica
tures. This feature of the musical
comedy adds decidedly to its Interest.
It is said that a really clever story is
told in the play and that even without
the musical accessories it would stand
as an interesting conied When to so
much worth is added the embellish

fascinating choru.-es and captivating
