DIRECTORS WANT TO KNOW
Decide at Monthly Meeting 'to Push
- Canvass for Funds to Start the, '
' Team on Its Way. .
Finances was the principal topic of
discussion at the regular monthly din
ner held by the Rock Island Baseball
association at the Rock Island Club
last evening. T. F. I.aVelle .took his
turn as host for the occasion. Every
thing save finances was found to be
in a most hopefrt state, but this feat
ure requires looking after to such an
extent that it was decided to meet
again next Friday evening and hear a
report from the soliciting committee.
If the necessary cash is raised there
is no doubt that the coming season
will he the best in a baseball way that
Rock Island has seen.
Burden Borne by Ffw,
But the cash that's the thing now.
For years 20 of Rock Island's citizens
have kept putting their hands into
their pockets to provide first class
league ball for Rock Island. These
people paid $100 a share for their
stock, have since paid in $174 a share
additional, have served also as officers
without salary, except the secretary,
and have never received a cent in
profits or dividends. Four years ago
the citizens generously joined with the
stockholders in providing a new park
one of the best minor league parks
in the state. Since that time they
have not been asked, to contribute any
thing except their good will. Last
year was a nara one lor an minor
leagues, but Rock Island kept its club
in the field all of the season at a net
loss of over $2,900 more than the re
Now Kit n Deliclt.
The officers of the club now face the
opening of the season, of 1009 vit1i a
depleted treasury. Manager Tighc has
signed the best bunch of ball players
ever under Rock Island contract, but
to call these 28 men will require more-
cash than the stockholders are willing
to advance. To help out, a committee
of citizens is now circulating a sub
script Ion paper to raise cash. The
stockholders are each contributing an
additional $25 and some of the enter
prising citizens and business firms who
wish professional ball continued aro
alsp contributing; hut more is needed.
and it Is hoped. the committee will.be
cordially. received by thoso upon whom"
they are to call.
