The raising of the league pennaht-at the
Island City ball park yesterday after
noon was attended with great success
for the champs." Wilson after the' first
inning had the Bunnies at his. mercy.
In the first inning a wild rabbit was
let. raose on the field by the Cedar
Rapids bunch and the excitement
it caused made Christy lose con-
tiol for a minute and the result was
that Howard's two sacker found a
man on second 'who scored and Christy
pitched one so wild that Hill's second
baseman followed with another tally
himself soon after. That ended the
visitors' business, however, and after
the first inning Christy allowed only
one more hit up to the last inning,
when he let down again for a minute
and 'two more hits were gathered, but
one of the prettiest'relays in from cen
ter field by Dowers and Berger on tht;
last hit cut off the man who was mak;
ing for the pan, which with Murphy's
catch in the left field, ended the game,
It took the Champs just one inning
(o take the measure of Pitcher La
Vell,-who was doing the twirling for
the Rabbits. In the second inning two
hits, one of tjcni on the scratch order
were iilade 'but 110 scores resulted. 'It
was not that way in the next, however.
Wilson was issued a pass and went to
second on Murphy's hit, which was. a
liner too fast for Mattick on third to
old. Cook sacrificed himself for the
good of the cause and each of the run
ners moved up a notch. Swalm nailed
one down the' first base line and Mul
len dfd the .foolish stunt and tried to
catch, an imaginary runner at the plate
but as no one had attempted to score
on the wallop the only result was that
the bases were filled. Berger was
there with the goods and hi single to
center drove in two auns and landed
Swalm on .third where he staid while
McBride aud Eng were put out.
HabltU l.oune Attain in Fourth.
The champs were not satisfied to
let the game renvain a tie and they
vent after' T.a Velle again in the
fourth round with the result that
three runs were gathered in. 'Wilson
started doings again after there were
two out. He was given transportation a
second time. The rabbit showed up
arain having been driven from the
club house where it had taken shelter
by some boys and its appearance had
the same effect on LaVelle that it had
on Wilson. Murphy and Cook were al
lowed to amble down to first in suc
cession. Then came Al Swalm with
his bid stick, the one that makes Ce
dar Rapids papers dub him "bad man
Swalm," and pasted out a hit that for
a while seamed would never drop. It
finally did fall, though, when Al was
on third and the others had all scored.
If Al's hit had been a few feet to the
right it would have cleared the right
lif Ul fence almost at the club house.
As it was it was about the longest
drive over made in the right garden.
Swalm perished on third while Spen
cer robbed Berger of a hit .by spearing
one that ought to have crossed over
the center of the second base and
resulted in a pretty single. It was the
meanest kind of robbery, for, had it
gone safe. Jog would have secured
four li its out of five times at the bat
which isn't so bad.
DoiurH Ali fielH Three-Sneker.
The . champions took a rest in the
next inning merely knocking out a
three tackc-r to worry the Rabbits.
Dowers was the guilty one and his hit
was 'peach although Jt would have
been' good for only the center station
by ajrapst any other player. Roy car
run 'some; however, and the way he
tears up the sod when there is a hit
in tight is awe inspiring. Gus Eng
had pasted one out to almost the
same place just before Dowers came
to bat but a dandy catch while running
towards theJietrce'. by the opposing
center fielder spoiled, his chances for
a double. . .. -
In the next two passes were issued
and then Berger smashed ut a hit and

phy of the Dubuque association said
that his city proposes to have a "Lof
tus" day at an early date, and he hoped
that Rock Island would be officially
and generally represented at that time.
After the Dubuquers had received as
surance that such would be the case
President Loftus said if this city par
ticipated in the Dubuque celebration
he would personally guarantee the
presence of President Coniiskey of th'
unieago vvnite tox Hooters associa

Mr. Loftus spoke of the affairs of the
league, expressing his determination
to do justice to all the clubs fairly end
