game of their. long series away from

inning comest. The game ended 2 to
The Cross Countrys did not play
with the regular line-up, as a' number
or the regular men were not ready to
join the team for the tour until today.
Thus the team was filled out with such
material as was available, and the
regulars would undoubtedly have per
formed better, thongh the boys gave
Coal Valley 'a run for their money"
at that. In the ninth inning Young,
the Cross Country catcher, broke "his
little finger, but he stayed in the game
ann worked behind the bat till the
finish. Terry of the Cross Countrys
struck d;ii 11 men, and Sommerson

A deal was announced today going
Into effect after the game this after
noon in which Rock Island trades Al
Swalm to Peoria for Catcher Claude
Stark and Third Baseman 'Wise.
Swalm will accompany Peoria home
and the other players Involved In the
exchange will remain here. 1
The change is'made in the tielief
that It will result in benefit to bota
teams and responsive to the desire of
the fans to, have "something done.':
President Rosenfleld and Manager
Cook cinched matters with Manager
Donnelly -last' evening. '
Stark Is one of the best known and
most generally liked players In the
league. He was secured by Peoria
this season from Little Rock which
bought him from Dubuque last season.
He has played as backstop, first base
aiid the outfield. ' Wise played third
for Peoria while Bewer was out of
condition but now that the latter is
hack at his regular station there is no
place for him. Wise will probably be
put at third and Lundin -will either
return tp the box or be tried on first
base, - in which event Nova-
cek will he sent to . right
field. Just what will be done
with the new players will be left to
Manager Cook. Stark may be played
at first and Novacek returned to tlio
outfield, where he does his best work,
or Eng may be sent to the right gar
den and Stark take the position : of
Swnlin (irarnil Favorltr.
Swalm has been with Rock Island
three seasons, and is a general favor
ite. " For some time, however, the man
agement has felt that he was dissatis
fled and would probably welcome a
change. Swalm Is a man of good hab
Us, and a perfect gentleman both on
and off the ball field, and there will
be much regret over any arrangement
that will take him away from the
In addition to the two new players
secured for Swalm the local manage

President Tom Loftus of the Three-

view printed in the Dubuqie Tele
graph-Herald regarding The Argus'
charges that there is a conspiracy
to which he is officially Indifferent,
among other teams, Dubuque Includ

i criticising the work of Umpire Mc
Greevy. In regard to the boycott
President Loftus says he has looked
up the rule" passed in 1904 requiring
teams" to stop, in the city In which
they play and s far as he can learn
it has never been repealed. If it Ms
still In force and a protest is made to
him through the local baseball au
thorities he says he is ready to put 5t
into effect. Regarding the umpire's
stopping in . Davenport the president
says he has not attempted to exercise
any authority over the officials In this
direction. "So far as I am concern
