Season Said to Be Reason
The Dubuque baseball directors have
selected Tom Stark for manager of
he aggregation for next season and
Monte McFarland will be notified that
le must look for another job. Stark

ready under contract.
The release of McFarland is said to

made in the latter part of the season.
Fans in other cities of the league are
inclined, however, to believe that the
trouble was not all Mac's fault.
Stark, it is understood, had an ap

FARMERS OF UPPER
END AFTER HUNTERi
Rock River Bottoms from Carbon Clif
to Zuma Now a Proscribed
Xow the farmers of the upper end o
the county are organizing to put a sto;
to indiscriminate hunting. The nui
sance has grown until property owner
can stand it no longer. Every Sunda;
morning the Burlington train tha
leaves Moline is loaded down witl
scores of hunters with dogs of ever
breed and description, and they cavon
about on the farms in the upper end o
the county till time to take the even
ing train home. Shooting cattle, kill
ing poultry, breaking down wire fences?
leaving gates open, and defying the ef
forts of property owners to eject them
f.re the charges made against the hunt
ers. A paper is being circulated anc
generally signed by farmers from Car
bon Cliff to Zuma along Rock rive1
bottom pledging those subscribing tc
i; to stand together and aid in tin
prosecution of lawbreakers with do;:
and gun, and the indications are thai
there will be something doing unless
hunters are more discreet in future
than they have been in the past.
The Colona Avenue league of South
Moline, which was formed originally tc
prosecute automobile scrochers and t
improve the bluff highway between
Moline and Carbon Cliff, has decided
to take up an anti-hunters crusade.
