Despite the rain which fell yester
day the Islanders added a game to the
Rood side of the percentage column at
the expense of Decatur. The Commo
dores are right on the heels of the
Springfield leaders of the league, and
had it not been that Clinton trounced
the Senators also yesterday, there
would have been a large sore spot in
the hearts of the visiting aggregation.
One can hardly see how the' champs
managed to pull off a victory on a
pair of hits and as many errors, while
the near leaders scraped up seven bin-
gles and played without an error.
Neai tossed for the champs and he
managed to keep the hits so well scat
tered that a visitor reached the far
corner of the diamond but once in the
tight rounds they faced him. t was
almost as bad with the winners, for
only one man had perched on third up
till the fatal seventh round when the
game was won. The champs had not
appeared at all dangerous for six Jong
rounds, while the Commodores were
doing all the rushing. Decatur gather
ed in two singles in the first inning,
but Eng caught both runners when
they tried to swipe second. Hits in
the fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth
were without results as far as the

was in the atmosphere he lost the

The champs had failed to land on a
safe one in the preceding innings, and
Swalm began to think they had no bin
gles coming to them. Lundin startled
him a little by landing on one with a
jolt that sent it far enough into right
field to give him a two-sacker. Then
came Louie Cook and poked one in the
other direction just inside the third
base line. Lundin sprinted for the
plate and. made it nicely, while Louie
later stole second. The two hits put
Swalm to sleep, and his wild pitch and
two free passes filled the bags with no
one but. Then he threw another one
so wide that Boucher could not touch
it, and every one moved along. Cook

was Swalm"s cue to settle down or get

grounded out and ended the inning.

Prout started to steal on a pitched ball

the throw from Eng. Barkwell, how
ever, hit the ball and knocked it in the
place where Joe had just left. Berger
saw the ball coming his way and turn
ed and started back after it. He caught
it, with his bare hand while leaning
over almost to the ground. He flipped
the ball to Cook on second without
turning around, and the man who was
trying for second was caught. A dou
ble play would have resulted had Stark
held the ball when Cook threw it to
him. As it was, Berger's stop and
throw was the feature of the game.

Manager Charles Kehoe and hi
Cross Country baseball team who have
been touring Illinois, Wisconsin and
Iowa for over two months, returned to
the city last evening. They will not
disband for the present, but will play
perhaps once a week during the early
fall. Saturday they won from Man
Chester, Iowa, 0 to 5, while Sunday
they had a game taken from them by
the umpire 1 to 0 in 10 innings, at In
dependence. 1 hey ' had this contest
fairly won in the 14th inning, the boy
say, but the umpire could not see it.
The team played 56 games, winnin
o and tying one. They met the best
teams in northern Illinois, southern
Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Prac
tically all the teams they played were
made up of or contained salaried play
"Winning games on the road is
fierce proposition," said Manager Ke
noe mis morning, "if there is any
close play the tourists get the worst
of it. If a home baseman catches th
ball the runner is out whether he is
touched or not and when the other
side is at bat the situation is reversed
Our pitchers had their troubles, too
They generally had to put them dow

But two or three games scheduled
were prevented by rain, the team hav
ing had a remarkable experience in
this respect. Eleven men were car
ried, and no changes in the lineup were
made outside the pitching staff, which
was recruited from this immediate vi
cinity. Ted Anderson, the first baseman, who
led the team with the stick, was grab
bed by Donnelly of Peoria at Cedar
Rapids a couple of weeks ago. He hits
like a big leaguer and his percentage
for the trip is well above .300. Burns,
the third baseman, had a chance to

ROCK ISLAND, 48
ON THE DIAMOND
Formal application lias been made by
he Central association, formerly Iowa
league, to the national baseball board
for the reservation of Davenport as
the territory of that organization.
During the summer Snapper Kennedy,
owner of the Oskaloosa team, bought
the Davenport baseball park; that is,
he secured the lease and improvements
on the grounds from the Davenport as-
ociation. Evidently the intention is
to switch the Oskaloosa franchise to
Davenport after this season.
Iu connection with this subject sev
eral interesting questions arise. For
one thing, it is doubtful if Davenport,
after its experience in the Three-Eve
league, really wants Iowa league ball.
Then, again, will the business men be
content to see Snapper Kennedy, an
outsider and an eccentric one at that.
represent that city in a matter con
nected so vitally with the city's name
Rock Island, of course, could .enter
protest against giving Davenport a
franchise in any league, and it would
stick, because the Davenport ball park

mile limit of the Rock Island park

At the end of the present season, as
everybody knows, the agreement of
the Three-Eye league is at an end and
the individual cities will be free to
make such baseball alliances as they
wish for the future. If Davenport
wants baseball and is content to wait
a few months before tying up to any
proposition, it is not unlikely that
berth in the Three-Eye league will be

speak of, and most of them have been
in serious financial straits a number
of times and will finish with a big de

clause. No doubt in the main the talk
of quitting is a mere bluff, and when
time comes to talk business for an
other season most of the clubs will be
ready to take their chances again, pro
vided there is assurance that the salary
limit will be adhered to. One or two
changes, however, may have to be
made, and herein lies Davenport's op
Ser the Humlm-iting'.
With reference to the salary limit
the movement from ths southern
town in this direction, particularly by
Peoria, is gratifying, for it indicates
that Hie handwriting on the wall has
been read and understood. Peoria

that material retrenchments must be

The canoe race of the Island City
Boating association in which single
paddles are to be pitted against double .
paddles is to take place tonight at the
harbor. As was mentioned some time
since, the race is to settle a difference
of opinion between Phil Mitchell and
C. R. Chamberlin. These two veteran
canoeists have put up several prizes
for the winners in the race. The con
ditions under which the race is to bi
run make it necessary to race diagon
ally across the current all the time
and accordingly the course will be
from the boat harbor on this side of
the river to a point just above the,
harbor on the other side of the river
and then back to the starting pace.
The course as laid out is one mile
long and it will test the endurance
of the paddlers quite as much as the
method of paddling.
Mu ,t llr CuiM'liiNivr.
In case of a close race between the
different kind of. propelled canoes
there will still be room for argument.
If, however, either has a a walkaway
it will settle beyond a doubt which is
really the better method of propul
sion. There are five entries in the
race at present but there may be an
other entry before the start. There
will be three with the double paddle
and two with the single paddle. The
race is scheduled to start promptly
at 7 o'clock.
