FEAR -THE.'. LIMIT
Salary Question Only Reason for Op
posing the Election of M. II.
Sexton by Three-Eye.
The Peoria Star has finally admitted
that the reason why M. H. Sexton was
so strenuously opposed by Springfield.,
aiid Peoria for president of the Three
Eye, league was on account of his well
known position on the salary ques
tion. If he had been made president
it was realized that he would insist
upon at least a reasonable regard for
the salary limit, thereby giving the
weaker towns a show for their white
alleys. While the deadlock' aT Chit-ago
was on Kinsella, of Springfield
tinual nagging of the south e;id papers
cannot longer go unanswered. Since
the Chicago meeting the . down state
papers have accused Mr. Sexton of
nearly all the crimes in the baseball
calendar. So deeply Impressed upon
them has his personality become that
they set up a cackling every time he
makes a move or they imagine he Is
going to. About the only way he can
permanently restore their peace of
mind is to efface himself from the
baseball njap or else go and live in
the southern end of the circuit.
The Burlington team came in from
Monmouth this morning and arc out
at the field this afternoon playing Man
ager Cook's aggregation. The, game
tomorrow will be called at 3 o'clock. .
" Bloomington did not get a game
with the . White Sox seconds yester
day, the grounds being muddy.
