Negotiations are on between Presi
dent Kinsella of Springfield and the
local management for the sale or tradc
of Pitcher George Hardin, who has
been the subject of considerable dis
cussion since it was found that he was
claimed by several teams. Rock Island
has carried him on its list of reserved
players since 1907 and in the mean
time he had been playing independent
bail, and has made such an impression
that many of (be managers turne.i
covetous eyes on him. Kinsella ap
proached him and asked ,him to sign
up to play with Springfield, not know
ing that Rock Island had a prior claim
on him, and Hardin readily signed, evi
dently not knowing, that he was tha
property of Rock Island. Now how
ever, since the discussion of the case
recently. Dick has found that tiie con
tract which he has with Hardin is not
ILinding and as he still wants him, hi?

EXPERTS TO PLAY
Lou Shaw and Billy Catton Are
Matched in Balk Line Billiard
Game at Ihe Bijou.'
BOTH ARE MASTERS OF CUE
Contest is Set for Thursday Evening-
Charles E. Blodgett, Trick Artist,
May Give Exhibition.
Billy Catton of this city, the one
time world's champion billiard player
has been matched with Lou Shaw, who
is known In the billiard world as the
wizard of the cue and who has been
exhibiting his sktM across the river in
several of the Davenport billiard halls
during the past week, and the two ex
perts will meet at the Bijou cigar
store next Thursday evening in a game
of 18-2 balkline billiards. A substan
tial side bet has been made by the
principals in the match and a fast ex
hibition is looked forward to by the
local followers of the game.
Shaw learned the rudiments of the
game under the direction and coach
ing of Catton, and many years of play
ing with the best jlayers in the coun
try has made him one of the shining
lights of the green cloth. At the same
time Catton is a past master, and while
he has not been playing enough in the
last few years to keep in his champion
ship form, he will be able to play a
game that will aslonlsn most of the
tri-city enthusiasts. The game will
commence at 8 o'clock, and no admis
sion fee will be charged to those who
desire to see the experts in action.
May Kxhlhit Trlekx.
Charles E. Blodgett, who claims to
be the father of them all when It comes
to making the billiard balls do stunts.
has arranged for an exhibition
at the - Bijou for Feb. 23.
Blodgett is not exactly a fancy billiard
player, but he is a wonderful perform
er in wHat he terms "Chinese bil
liards." He makes the balls do things
that seem to defy the laws of gravita
tion and several other well established
laws. He is a pool expert also, and
says he has defeated Charles Tripp,
who was here lately from Chicago
claiming the state championship, by
so wide a margin that there is no com
parison. He allowed Tripp to play the
regulation game while lie used but one
of the six pockets in the table. Defeat
ing a man of Tripp's caliber under such
an enormous handicap is enough in
itself to rate Blodgett as a wonder.
COLONIAL BALL IS
SET FOR FEB. 24
Elks Will Hold Event at Lodge Hall
Celebrities of Revolutionary Days
Are to Be Impersonated.
The preparations for the colonial
ball which the Hock Island Elks ar?
to hold have been almost completed
and the date has been set for Feb. 21.
It was found impossible to secure the
rink for the affair and it will be heH
in the club rooms of the Elks building
where although it will be impossible
to accommodate any spectators, the
ones who will participate in the ball
itself will probably better enjoy them
selves because of the belter accommo
dations afforded for dancing. Coloni.il
costumes and evening dress will pre
vail. About 40 couples will be desig
nated to appear in colonial dress and
the rest will all wear evening dress.
An attempt will be made by some "f
those who are to appear in the old
fashioned costumes to impersonate
some of the celebrities of the days of
the revolution. The affair will be one
of the largest and most brilliant of its
kind ever witnessed in the throe
