The Islanders and Rabbits pulled off
a game yesterday afternoon that no
one expected would be played but th-j
heavy downpour in town did not quite
reach Island City park and the grounds
were in good shape when play was
called. The threatening skies forced
the Islanders to hurry the game and
they went right after the Kabbits in
the first inning so as to have a lead in
case rain interfered. Fox, the receiu
Springfield acquisition, was chosen b
Hill to iull tile Islanders down in the
race for the Hag, but they went after
the man with the $10,000 arm and lu
cent head and tucked away the gam-j
in the first two innings. Christy Wil
son held the liabbits all the way anl
kept their hits scattered with the ex
ception of the ninth when they bunc'i
Iluw Hun Wen- Made.
In Hie first after Swalm had been
called out on strikes, O'Leary pasted
a line drive to right. Himes struck
out but Simon let the ball get away
from him and Jack was safe at first.
Vandine also whiffed the air three
times but Wanner singled scoring Da.i
and Himes moved over to third. Mur
phy also snook down a single past
short and Himes scored. Cook went
out from Howard to Pfyle.
Fox gave Dowers a walk in the sec
ond and Wilson sent him along with a
sacrifice. Swalm went out, short to
first, but Dan O'Leary was ther-3
again, this time with a double to cen
ter and Dowers registered at tho
counting station. Himes hit a hot or.j
through Howard and Dan came home
with Uio second run. Un tuc throw to
catch Dan, Himes took second and ;
moment later third when Fox threw th
ball into center field. With Van up it
looked like another, but Fox made hi n
saw three times and retired the sid.
In the fifth the Islanders slipped
over another. Vandine doubled along
the left field four line. Wanner
struck out, but Murphy laced out his
second timely single and Van counted.
In the seventh it looked like th
Islanders would make a dozen with a
full house and nobody out, Vandine
getting to first with a base on balls
nd Wanner and Murphy on errors of
ox and 1'fyle, but Van was caught at
the plate on the squeeze and Smio'i
nipped Wanner a moment later at
third. Dowers singled and Murphy
was called out at the plate although
e was plainly safe.
Two DoiiMi'n IlrltiK llunn.
The Rabbits bagged one in the sixth
and one in the ninth. Oakcs walked
n the sixth and after two were down
scored on Howard's long double fc
left. Simon struck out. In the ninth
Simon singled and Clevenger sent hi'ii
all the way home with a two basse-.
Crandall struck out and Fox did like
wise, but Davis hit one along past
second and it looked like another
score, but Cook got back on the grass

chased Clevenger back to third whe.-3

Christy Wilson was right again. He
had that out drop working to perfec
tion. A young woman in one of the box
in dodging when a foul struck th-:
screen in ront of her jammed her face
squarely up against that of the youn
man who sat beside her. There wan
a difference of opinion among thosj
who witnessed the incident as .;
whether it was all accident.
The attendance was the poorest or
the season because few thought it
would be possible to play. In the
business part of the city rain fell fo
half an hour and water ran in the
streets. At the ball park, strauge'y
enough, the sprinkle was not heavy
enough to eutirily lay the dust.
TWO DEFAULTS IN
WOMEN'S GOLF MATCH
San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 11.
"George Memsic will be given the next
chance for my title," said Joe Gans yes
terday. "I leave today for Los Angeles
to begin training for my battle with
the Chicago fighter, which is set for
September 27. The othirs will be giv
en their chance in due time."
Gans did not look like a fighter who
had been through a championship bat
tle. The sturdy champion did not show
a mark from his battle with Britt and
looked fit for another go on 20 minutes'
Gans considers Memsic a formidable
claimant for the championship. He has
plenty of respect for The challenger's
punch and his ability as a fighter and
will go into active training at once to
prepare for the go. He will allow him
self to take on weight for a while in
order that he may not grow stale be
fore the battle and do his reducing in
the last week of training.

New York, Sept. 11. After making
all arrangements to start for San Fran
cisco and after having actually reserv
ed his berth a week ago, Billy Papke
of Spring Valley, 111., who was persuad
ed to remain here until another bout
could be secured for him. has been
matched to fight Saturday night. He
will go against Terry Martin in the Na
tional Athletic club at Philadelphia.

Papke has been working in a gym
nasium in this city and, although the
bout has been arranged at such a short
notice, it is believed he will be in good
hape. It is not thought that there will
be any interference with the bouts in
the Quaker city.

San Francisco, Sept. 11. In spite of
strenuous denials by both Jimmy an l
Willus Britt, rumors, which will not
down, are to the effect that Jimmy
did not break his arm in the go with
Gans, but that ho simply hurt his
wrist badly and decided to stop. Tlu
information that the lighters split th ?
purse, instead of dividing it as repori
ed, confirmed the statement.
Moreover, the rapidity with which
Britt's arm was incased in plaste"
caused some suspicions, as the phy
sicians who examined him were those
brought to the ringside by his ow.i
party. It is believed that Britt sim
ply saw his own case was hopeless and
that he was ready to stop at any
time, although many credit him with
believing that his arm was really fra:-tured.
ting or fielding to suit them, it would
appear as if Scharnie did not have
much to say.
With rain keeping the southern
learns idle the Islanders crept up io
within one point of the loaders yester
day. The rest, however, will be to
Decatur's advantage, as they were
mowing the effects of the strain they
had been under in keeping the pa- J
with Peoria and were about due for a
beating by Bloomington. Double hea-i-?rs
will probably be played at Bloom
ington and Peoria today.
Next Tuesday the Islanders start on
a barnstorming trip. They will all gJ
with the exception of Manager Tighe
and Jack Himes. Dan O'Loary will bo
;n charge. The team will first go ti
Wapello, Iowa, where a fair is to be
held and will play there daily during
the week with Burlington. At the end
of the week the team will go to Bur
lington, and from that city the Island
ers move to Quincy. So far an itin
erary lias been arranged which will
cover about two weeks.

F. 12. Smith, sporting editor of tin
Peoria Hei aid-Transcript and Fred
Robinson, publisher of the Sporting
Bulletin, have instituted suit in th
Peoria county circuit court against
the Springfield Baseball association.
The two were refused admittance t
the grounds one day last week and
then arrested and taken to th
Springfield jail on orders of President
Kinsella of the Springfield team, be
cause of attacks they had made o.i
Kinsella and the team. False imprison
ment is charged and $3,000 damage
asked in each case.
Is Peoria going to throw games to
Decatur in the final series, thereby
suffering Springfield to take third
place without a struggle? Strang
things appear in the newspapers down
that way. Says the Peoria Star
"That Decatur team should win th
pennant. Now that the Distillers are
out of the running for the Hag there
isn't a Peoria fan who isn't pulling Ur.
the Commodores. They are a gentle
manly lot and what games they have
won have gone to them on the
merits. Manager Reed has gathered
an excellent team and they have won
their honors by honest ball playing
and not by rowdyism." The Journal
says: "Paul Moore did not care a rii.i
and the rest of the Distillers couldn't
do it all. But Paul was not the on!
offender. There seemed Jo be a gen
eral attack of don't care a darn if we

"My Dixie Girl." Miss Mae Abbott,
the talented young actress, .has been
assigned the difficult and exacting part
in the new production, "My Dixie Girl,"
an absorbing comedy drama, by Miss
Sadie Calhoun, granddaughter of the
late famous southern statesman, John
C. Calhoun. This play is in four acts.
and the scenes are laid in old Ken
tucky. For the present we will be
content to expatiate upon the meteoric
flight of Miss Abbott, from the chorus
to the top of the ladder. Commencing
in the chorus of "A Hot Old Time" a
few years ago, this handsome, viva
cious young woman soon demonstra
ted that she had taken the chorus route
to break into the charmed circle be
hind the footlights, and her competen
cy soon won her speaking roles, in all
of which she acquirted herself beyond
ven the expectations of her mana
gers, sue sustains the title roie in
My Dixie Girl" "Dixie." And the
play is iu four stirring acts, bubbling,
over with merriment and excitement
thioughout. Dixie was stolen in her
bildhood and taken to New York,
where she grew up iu the slums. hen
she is restored to her father, a staid
old Kentucky colonel, her slang vocab
ulary is so complete that it apiears to
the Kcntuckian like a foreign tongue,
and in this lays much of the ludicrous-
ness of the piece. Some difficulty was
experienced iu getting the right char
acter of talent to sustain the young
lady, as every part in the play is a
star role, and the managers, Messrs.
Dodge and Duffield. were determined
that no better supporting company
could be found anywhere. From Chi
cago they routed zig-zag to the Pacific
coast, returning through the south, vis
iting en tour every prominent place in
that region. The first stand out of
