; The board of baseball d rectors who
were entertained at . dinner; at ; thti
Rock Island Club last evening by H
E. Casteel, found that the Rock Island
baseball association was never in bet
ter condition financially at the start ol
the. '.year'. than it is at the' present
time. There has never been a year
when the directors found at the open
ing of the season that they . couid
start the year with a deficit in the
traesury short of '? $1,000 and some
times it lias been considerably more.
This year it would have been consid
erably more had it not been that me
directors took the bull by the Korns
and came out and put the matter be
fore the people of the city who have
supported baseball in the past and
who could be depended upon to su-
port it again even in the fate of ad
The directors confessed that they
were in the neighborhood of $2,000
shy of the amount that would insure
baseball for the .year and asked that
the fans make up the deficit. Then
the committee appointed for that pur
pose got out and, as it were, passed
around the hat, which, when exam
ined at the meeting last night was
found to be pretty well filled. Aboat
$1,200 has already been collected anl
it is now the intention of the com
mittee to wait for voluntary subscrip
tions for the greater part of the re
Alive to I m port h ore of Game.
The amount which has already besn
raised came so easily that the direc
tors feel assured that the fans of the
city are fully alive to what is needed
and that it is their intention to see
that the whole amount is forthcom
ing. Every day someone reproaches
the committeeman for overlooking him
when the hat was -passed around and
then he digs into his jeans and in
sists that he be allowed to contribute
The examining of the contents of
the hat which was passed around took
the greater part of the time at th
meeting last evening, buf several minor
matters were attended to. The conces
sions for the selling of refreshments and
the like at the ball park during th?
year, have been let to Frank 'Warner,
who had them last year and whose ser
vice was considered very good. A
ground keeper will be named later.
Jack Tighe also announced to the
directors that he is in possession "f
the signed contract of all the men
that ho has dickered with and that
thej- will be ready to report when he
wants them. Jack made one excep
tion to this statement, as. Joe Scott
has not yet come to time and afilxsd
his "John Henry" to a contract. Joe
is still of the opinion that he is worh
more than Jack wants to give him, but
Joe is not as stubborn as a mule and

out of the fold much longer. -
