LITTLE BELOW SPRINGFIELD
Justifies Complaint Against Peoria
Robbits Next to the Bottom
During the Three-Eye season recent-
ly closed there was neani some criti
cism among Roe k Island fans who ac
cused the local" management of pursu
ing a policy of economy in the matter
of salaries that was responsioie ior
the unsatisfactory showing of the
team. This was denied orally by those
who knew of the facts but many were
The Argus is now" able to present
the official figures which were submit
ted at the annual meeting of the league
at Chicago last week' which show that
Rock Island paid more for its team
than either Decatur. Davenport,
Blooniington or Cedar Rapids, in fact
but a couple of hundred dollars less
than Springfield and Dubuque. Cedar
Rapids, it is interesting to note, easily
won the pennant with a team that cost
only about $15 more during the season
than that of Davenport, the cheapest
in the league and the tail enders in
JulilltM ( hnrcm Anulut l'rorla.
In the salary lists, which cover a
season of four months and Hi days, it
will be.sven that there is justification
for the cry against the high salaries of
the Peoria team and that the chum
made by Peoria papers that Cedar
Rapids was also supporting an expens-
ve aggregation was extremely ridicu
lous. The figures follow:
ence over a longer route, even though
the latter touches more cities and
towns. For this reason Alexis and Ale
da are .apt to suffer unless strong in
ducements are offered. However, sur
veys will be made which will take in
both these points.

The game of football with Kewanee
which was to have been played in that
city by the high school team Saturday
has been .cancelled. Monmouth has
been substituted and- the game will be
played at Island City park Saturday af
ternoon, the game to be called at 3
o'clock. The battle with Monmouth
will be watched with interest by the
supporters of the local team as Mo-
jinc . secured but two touchdowns in
their game with that aggregation two
weeks ago, and the result of the con
test Saturday will cause no little ex
pression of opinions in regard to the
tri-city championship title. The high
scnooi s snowing m tne initial game
last Saturday was indeed encouraging
and the Monmouth lads will have to
put up a stonewall defense to stop the
local team. Much enthusiasm is in
evidence among the students and the
team will not lack in support in the
way of rooting.

Chicago, Oct. 16. The White Stock
ings reported at their clubhouse and
the American league offices yesterday
for the purpose of talking over the
series and settling up accounts. Ev
erywhere they were met with congrat
ulations. Jones' world's champions
rtceived as their winners' share of the
$106,550 receipts of the world's series
$25,051.23. In addition there was the
generous gift of $15,000 from President
Comiskey, which raised the purse for
them to cut up to the cozy sum of $40.
051.23. As there were 21 Sox eligible
to the world's series each player's
share was $1,945.29, a tidy bit to help
him over a "hard winter." Besides
this there will be the receipts from the
exhibition games of this week, which
probably will raise each player's sur
plus to $2,000.
Loser (et Tbelrn.
Chance's men got together at the
club's headquarters in the Masonic
temple, and after exchanging condo
lences proceeded to divide the loser's
end of the spoils. The Cubs bore them
selves admirably in defeat and were
unanimous in their expressions that
they had been beaten fairly by a great
team of ball players, and that they
hoped to meet the same team next
year for the same honors and reverse
The losing share of the players' pool
from the national commission amount
ed to $8,350.41. In addition to this
Chance's men were the recipients of
$2,777.40 from President Murphy as
their share of the exhibition games the
team has played since July 29, from
which date the players have been
equal beneficiaries with the club itself
in the matter of exhibition receipts.
This, raised the sum for the Cubs to
cut up to $11,127.80, which was di
vided among 19 players. When the
players had finished that work. Presi
dent Murphy added a check for $100
as a gift to each of the players for win
ning the National league champion
ship, and this brought each man's
share close to $700.

An instance illustrating the rivalry
that existed in Rock Island between
supporters of the Cubs and the Sox in
their recent series took place in the
barroom of the Harper house. Wallace
Weigand was an ardent champion of
the Sox and Billy Ivens of the Cubs.
Yesterday morning when the latter re

Cubs supporters were bound to wear

Monmouth. 111.. Oct. 10. The survey
ing of the first line between Monmouth
and Rock Island by the Rock Island
Southern was commenced yesterday,
starting from North B street and fol
lowing north along the section line.
Engineer J. F .Curtis and a corps of
hve assistants compose tne party 111
charge of the work. The proposed
route of the first line is north across
Cedar creek very near the section line,
thence it will vary somewhat in an
easterly direction until Norwood is
touched, and from there north and a
little easterly through Suez and Greene
townships in Mercer county to Viola.
From this place a direct north line will
be built to Preemption and from there
on into either Rock Island or Moline.
The first thing desired by the Rock
Island Southern is a direct line in order
that the distance may be shortened a:;
much as possible. All things being
equal, the short line will have prefer-
Peona, Oct. 10. Distilling interests
in Peoria are showing no small amount
of concern over the regulations and re
strictions placed upon the manufacture
of denaturize. dalcohol by the internal
revenue department. Samuel Woolner,
head of the Woolner Distilling com
pany, has left for Washington, where
he will meet the internal revenue com
mission. He will be joined there by
other distillers from different, parts of
the country, and the conference will
have in view the removal of prohibi
tive restrictions imposed on the dena
turized product. Robert D. Clark, one
!of the most prominent independent dis
tillers of the country, stated that unless
there is considerable change in the rul
ing of the commission, the manufac
ture of denaturized alcohol will not be
extensive in Peoria.
Wounds. Bruises and Burns.
By applying an antiseptic dressing
to wounds, bruises, burns and like in
juries before inflammation sets in, they
may be healed without maturation and
in about one-third the time required
for the old treatment. This is the
greatest discovery and triumph of
modern surgery. Chamberlain's Pain
Balm acts on this same principle. It
Is an antiseptic and when applied to
such injuries, causes them to heal
very quickly. It also allays the pain
and soreness and prevents any danger
of bfrod poisoning. Keep a bottle of
Pain Balm in your home and it will
save you time and money, not to men

such injuries entail. For sale by all
