no runs came over. In the last of

-Is, it proper for a baseball team to
stop in a city hostile to the spirit of
the city in which it is playing?
What would any other city in the
Three-Eye league do under the circum
stances which prevail here, if similar
ly situated? :
Rock Island has tried to be fair-
minded and avoid the village act, but
it seems time now to register a protest
against the continued 'housing of visit
ing teams in Davenport hotels.
A few years ago the league constitu
tion provided for the requirement that
all teams should stop in the cities in
which they play, and it should be so
now. Even without such a provision.
the spirit of loyalty on the part of
other clubs should render it unneces
sary to make the restriction binding.
The city that does its part to support
needing : only . timely hits.. In - fact,
even in the ninth a couple ot healthy
swats -well timevi would have tied the!

The Islanders played as though they
v.-ere. tired yesterday and1 there may
be excuse for "it. -The' season Is youhjH
and they are not hardened to the work.

entrance into the game was marked
