LOSE WANNER, TOO
Rock Island Second Baseman
Drafted by Portland Pacific -League
GOES AT ONCE FOR A TRIAL
Annual Meeting of Local Association
Called Meidroth Quits at
Johnny Wanner is not likely to ap
pear in an Islander uniform again. Ho
has bet n drafted by I he I'ortland Pa
cific league team, and leaves for .the
toast tonight to finish the season. If
he makes good, and it is scarcely ex
pected that he will do otherwise. Rock
Island will know him no more. While
the Rock Island association is always
glad to see promising players go to
faster company, particularly when there
is a suitable consideration to be had,
the tlrafring of Wanner by Portland id
not an altogether pleasant surprise. The
services of ihe player next season had
been counted upon, and it was felt that;
should lu continue to show improve
ment, a major league berth would prob
ably be open to him. Wanner came to
Hock Island in the latter part of 1001
fiom Ceneseo. his home, without pro
fessional experience, and first played
the outfield. The following spring he
went to second base, and has held
('own that cushion since. His record
this sea .-on was probably the best all
around ot any second baseman in the
mi m I Mre-Unss Toiinrr.
Tomoriow evening the Rock Island
Iiasvball association will have its an
nual meeting at the Harper house. The
year's work will be gone over, and the
outlook for another season canvassed.
The attitude to be taken by the repre
sentatives of the local club who will
be chosen to attend the annual meeting
at Chicago is to be determined. The
ejection of otiieers al: takes place.

Billy Rhodes Fails to Take Welter
YANGER AND KINNEY BOOKED
Fight at Davenport Oct. 25 Potts and
Clarence English for
Kansas City. Mo., Oet. 1. Joe Wal
cott of Boston, and Billy Rhodes of
this city fought a 2t-round draw yes
terday afternoon on a sand island in
the Missouri river 12 miles below Kan
The fighters and spectators went to
the island by steamer and the ring was
pitched in the sand, 2.000 men standing
around the ropes to see the; contest.
The island, being uninhabited and un-
assigned to e-ither tf the adjoining
counties, neither she-riff concerned
himself about the fight. Walcott was
the aggressor from the start, Rhodes
contenting himself with cleverly block
ing the negro, who was unable to laud
on Rhodes at any time.
In the 17th round Walcott injured
his hand and abated his aggressiveness
but Rhodes seemed willing to continue
on the defensive and accept a draw.
While Walcott did most or the work
and had a shade the better of Ihe con
test, both men were in good condition
at the end of the scheduled 20 rounds.
The fight was announced to be fer the
world's welterweight championship,
which Walcott claims.
