thing to them. Bishop, who has seen
service in the Three-Eye in years past,
started the work and was chased in
the third after three smashes-and a
bunt game had sent him up in the air
Saint, another recruit from Taylorville,
then took the mound and stood . the
gaff for the remainder of the way, the
Islanders battering him for eight more
scores and ending with the count 12
Nrnl Sent to Klnixb It.
Lakaff started the work for Rock Is
land, and did good work till the sixth
when he got into a hole and Neal was
sent to thefront to pull out, which he
did with little damage, and then held
the Distillers safe the rest of the way

BIG RACE OF YEAR
Island City Boating Association
Holds Last Contest of
80ATS EXCEEDING 20 FEE1
List of Entries Is Large and Hot Go
Is Expected A New Scheme of
This evening the last of the first
series -of boat races planned by the
Island City uoating association will
be run off at the boat harbor. The
last race is a handicap race for boats
over 20 feet in length. There are 15
boats entered and it promises to be
the most hotly contested race of the
whole series. The course is five miles
long, starting at the harbor and going
down the river to a buoy located be
tween Suburban island and the oil
cloth works, from there up the river
again and around one of the piers in
the Rock Island bridge and then back
to the harbor. Boats going up stream
must keep on the outside of boats on
the way down. This rule was made
to prevent accidents from collisions
and any boat breaking this rule will
very likely be disqualified.
Prizes for this race have been se
cured from a number of the merchants
in the city. For first place Beardsley
& Bailey have given a large American
flag. The second boat to finish will
receive a jointed fish pole from the
Rock Island Hardware company.
Gustafson & Hayes have given a fine
shirt for the third prize. A time prizs
will be awarded to the boat which
covers the course in the least time,
regardless of where it finishes. .This
will be a box of cigars donated by the
Bijou cigar store.
The judges for the race have been
chosen. They are James Hall, Addi
son Geit. Edward Pearson. George E.
Bailey and Edward Concannon. C. L.
Beardsley and C. A. Jencke will keep
the time of the boats. E. A. Briggs
has been appointed clerk of the
course, it being his duty to get the
boats ready to start.
A new system of handicapping the
boats will be given a trial in this race.
It takes into consideration the power.
length and the beam of the contesting
boats. The principal trouble met in
giving the handicaps has been in de
termining the horsepower of the boats
Some do not know what their horse
power really is while others underrate
it in order to get a larger handicap.
The order of starting and the handi
caps of each of the entries as calcu
lated from the official club ratings of
the boats has teen made out. but on
account of the underrating of the
power in the official rating of the boats
some changes will probably have to
be made before the race Is run. At
the request of any of the boat owners
the horsepower of any of the boats
will be figured out for them and a new
rating obtained. '

their handicaps is as follows:

Joe Burg, the Burlington third bass-
man, who was formerly with Spring
field, has been purchased by Little
Warren Gill, the former Rabbit who
w'as tried out as a first sacker by Pitts-
burg last spring and turned over to
Grand Rapids when Harry Swacina
wag kept, has been recalled.
Al Kuhn has again lost his home,
Bloomington having released him be
cause of weak- hitting. Al was drop
ped by Decatur two seasons ago for
the same reason but has done fairly
well with Bloomington.
The New , York Giants wallop-:!
Pittsburg twice and took the lead in
the National league away from them
yesterday. Larry Doyle, the former
1 Springfield player, took a prominent
part in the proceedings.
Quincy is planning to hold its team
after the end of the season and it is
given out that games have been
scheduled with Rock Island for Sept.
25, 26 and. 28, as well as with a num
ber of other Three-Eye teams.
Art Wilson has been; ordered -to
join the New York Giants in Chicago

Fitcner Orville Selby, who was
tried out by Bloomington and seemed
a frost, has been sold by Topeka for
$1,000 to Louisville. First Baseman
iracey, another former Bloomer, who
was considered not good enough, has
been disposed of by La Crosse to St
Paul for $500.
The facts in the Springfield-New
York deal for the sale of players
seems to be that Cocash is the only
player actually sold beside More. He
is to bring $2,500, $500 down and the
balance when he makes good. The
Chicago Nationals have an option on

tion on Smith and. Grandy which will
no doubt be allowed to expire.
Decatur claims the navelty of a

large. His name is John Moore and
he follows the .game by listening to
the umpire's decisions. When the at
