of accepting personal security upon
a bond, when corporate security is
vastly superior ?
The personal surety may be finan

estate be immediately distributed.
Ia any event, recovery is dilatory
Because of its greater stability, the

Corporate Suretyship. Follow its

gridiron at Moline yesterday afternoon,
neither side scoring. The home team

distance but once.
Moline and Clinton high schools did
not find the first application of the new

Game of Season.
Chicago. Oct. 8. At 11 o'clock this
morning the members of the national
baseball commission, the Chicago Na

the umpires, and others directly con
cerned in the world's championship
games, met at the Auditorium Annex.
Piesident Hermann of the commission,
delivered his instructions to the quar

of preserving decorum on the field,
provision for ground rules, and other
details were gone over thoroughly.
Ti'iinm In tionl Miape.
Both teams approach the crucial
contests with forces in remarkably
good condition. Outfielder Slagle of
the Nationals and Short Stop Davis of
the White Sox are the only notable ex
ceptions. The former will not be able
to ilay during the series, in all prob
ability, the injury to his breast keep
ing him idle. As their leadoff batter
and most experienced outfielder, Sla
gle's absence can not be considered in
fairness as cutting no figure in the re
sult. At the same time it is conceded
the Cubs had a splendid substitute
in Hofman, who has been filiing Sla
gle's siioes so well for the last week,
batting hard and fielding finely. Chance
has declared Hofman one of the finest
outfielders in the country.
The rest of the Cubs appear to be
in tip top shape. Mordecai Brown,
whose Giant killer arm was out of com
mission for a while, is reported to be
in as good condition as ever. Dr. Har

George Davis is not nearly so bad
oft' as is Slagle, and he undoubtedly
will appear at short stop for the Sox
in the opening game. Davis' physician
has diagnosed the player's lame back
to be due not to a sprain but to a
co'.d. Electrical treatment is being
applied and the advent of warmer
weather, which is the promise, is'likely
to whip the veteran into fairly good

of the Cubs' lineup will be familiar,
