A picked basketball team made up

I the Pecolas of Moline last evening at

one sidedness of the score to the fact
that they were entirely new to tba
arrangement of the Moline court and
also to the fact that Souders was out
of the game and Aster' was iu such bad
shape that he, too. ought not ' have
played. Clarence Ficken 'filled the
place left vacant by Souders, the rest
of the lineup included Liitt, Harms,

This was the farewell message of

Opening of a New Series on

ALREADY ARE 32 PLAYERS IN
Mark Catton, Scratch Man in the Bijou
BtUiard Tourney, Loses to Roan
' tree Games at L. & O. Hatl.
Interest in pool and billiard playing
has . revived considerably during ' the
last two or three weeks and another
tournament has been started, jn
which there are more' entries than in
either of the tourneys now in pro
gress. The latest is a pool tourament
at George Mason's place, In which 22
men are already entered and which
will commence Monday evening. Han
dicaps have been assigned to those
entered and there will be seven men
playing a scratch game. Four games
are to be played four times a week,
the tournament nights being Monday,
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The
games will all be 100 balls, line up af
ter each inning. Mr. Mason has se
cured three fancy pues to be given as
prizes for the winners of the first three
places. Each player will meet every
other man in' the tournament.
Plans for this tournament have been
under way for some time, but had not
been actively pushed until the poSS
hall was better - fitted for it. New
lights of the Johnson arc style have
been installed and the tables have
received a thorough overhauling, and
everything is now in great shape for
tournament. The entries in the
ournament and their handicaps are
as -follows: "James Johnson (100):
John Schwecke (100) : Archie Eddv
U00); George Ellis (100); Tom Ken

Catton (100) and Roantree (50)
played their game in the Bijou billiard
tournament last evening and the latter
won by a score of 50 to 78. The re
sult was a big surprise to everyone
who had ; been following the games.
Catton; was in such poor form and at
Lhe same time Roantree played an un-
jsually good game, that after the first
naif of 'the game was gone, it was
jasy to, predict the wfnner. This 1b
