One of the nicest week day audi-
m en in iiie season was out ui uie re
ception. A few were from Davenport.
I'iie only time they filled their lun;
vas when Thornton opened the ninth
vith a lluke hit that went lor two
lases. I Jut tbe aforesaid visitors col
lapsed with a splash when the runner
died in his tracks on the fast double

which tarnished a heart disease wimi
ip. Seldom luis there been hear I
-itch rooting for the home team. I'
'tad something to feed upon al! th
ivhile and it grew ami flourished an I
ast the Senators in the shade.
For there was much to shout about.
Wilson held the visitors down. Cook
--.pan kid them. ;:nd Tighe prevented
i hem from getting away in the lin il
cssion. If ever a pitcher was right
' hat pitcher was Wilson yesterday. Up
to the ninth he had suffered two sin
,'!es to be picked off, both in the six.'i
inning, and then Manager Schawi
wobcr. who made the fust one. died at
In the ninth Thornton's two bagger
was a short high one over short that
Cook could have pulled down easily
iiad he bet u in his usual position.
However, he was up close behind Van
dine laying for one of those nasty li'
Me freaks that a left handed batter
sometimes puts just over the third
hasi man's head. Dowers was well t
(lie right and so the ball fulled awiv
unrestrained. Two errors on ha d
chance:; wire followed up by brilliant
all around work and did no damage.
Ui-t-rlirr ol Si Poor.
Heeclur, who is accounted Spring
field's best and who is said to be slate 1
for fasti r company at the end of the
season, did not do much worse thin
Wilson but he suffered himself to be
tapped twice in the fourth, and this
with Helper's stolen base and Ruby'.
error was enough to decide the dav.
Rock Island had nun on in several
other rounds but Cook was the only
one that was abb; to put the ball into
an open spot when there was any bod v
on second. N
Aside from the sixth the visitors di 1
not have much ground for hope.
A double play in the third pulled on
of one small hole and Wilson's quici
peg to Derger who stabbed Herbert
off second in the seventh after he h i 1
lived on an error helped in another
Tighe started the fireworks that etiv
ed in Hock Island's only run but be
did not rise to the full proportions of a
hero till the final flash. With Thorr

manager made a lunge for it, barc"
met it and held fast. Thorton was id
ready at third and t here was no use !'
turn back. The side was snuffed out
so quickly that the crowd sat for wh u
seemed a full minute before rea'.izim:
that the game had been won.

was not able to sacrifice. The last two
strikes neither of which he made a
pass at, were as putty as ever went
over the oyster. Yet Jess grew .-o
vociferous that the umpire had. to tag
him for a live spot.
Notwithstanding the ground was per
fectly dry yesterday it was one of the
dampest days of the baseball year.
Once Umpire Wilkinson was compelled
to lay the halls out in a heap back of
the catcher to dry. The reason ! r
this was the extreme humidity of tin?

to have been sick most of the tinn

Bill Ludwig i.s reported to have been

Springfield is said to be negotiating

Say:;. the Davenport Democrat: "The
Springfield Thiee-Kye baseball team is
quartered at the St. James in Dave-i
port today and ivill remain on t'tis si 1,
of the river during the series of games
with Rock Island. It was explained
that the men forsook the Rock Island
hostelrics because they coul.l not kr- ii

Davenport this is a joke that will '
appreciated in Rock Island.
STOP IN THE CITY
Booster Spirit Demands That Rock Is

ment of Rule.
It i.s altogether in keeping with th-.-booster
spirit in Rock Island for th-'
local association to take a determined
stand for visiting teams to obey th.:
rules of the league and stop in th
town in which they are playing.
Springfield came here this trip in an
ugly mood and to show its antipathy
to Rock Islam, took quarters in a Dav
enport bot I. hi doing tbis it has ai
pealcd to the hostile tendency of Dav
enport fans toward the Rock Island
ball team and instead of having Ps
proportion of the earnings of the series
hire in Rock island where it wins
them, it is turning a percentage ol'
them over to a town that has peter. -d
out in the league and has neither the
baseball spirit nor the public spiti
essential to maintain a club and whos -best
satisfaction can inw be fouuad
in knocking Rock Island. Presideir
Holland should be appealed to to en
force the rules and compel not only
Spiinglield but every other visit in;
club to stop in Rock Island.

HELP FROM NORTH
Rock Island Has Harder Work to
Keep Place at Home Than on the
Road, Declares a Fan.
"Another thins to be considered in
Kock I.-kind's uphill fiht." said
inayor Henry Carse this inornin.e:. ";s
that it is setting no help whatev -r
from the other teams of the northern
md of the circuit in meeting tho?
from the south. Take yesterday, for
instance. Kock Island was the only
team that won on its home grounds.
On the recent invasio'n of the -southern
end of the circuit Kock Island pot lit
tle help from its associate teams Li
the northern end. So it's practically
necessary for Kock I.-land to win
more than the average percentage .f
panics during th present home series
in order to keep its position at the top
of the 1 i .-, 1 . Under the circumstances
the locals have about as hard a tim
holding their own at home as on th
read. It behooves every good fa 1,
therefore, to continue the same en
thusiastic and consistent support of
the boys that was shown yesterday."
