Manager Jack Tighe has received a
letter from Hugh Shannon, this year's
manager of the Otturawa club in the
Central association, and last year man
ager of Wilmington ia the Eastern Car
olina association. Among other things
Shannon extended hearty congratula
tions to Jack oh account of his having
secured Webster, tfce pitcher whom
Rock Island bought from Wilmington.
Shannon was Webster's manager last
year, and he understands his value as
a twirler. He says Webster is a big
man and capable of being worked hard
and at the same time is able to deliver
the goods day after day without fall
ing down. While Jack was already
pretty well satisfied that Webster is
the real thing, with this assurance
from Shannon he is better satisfied

Some of the papers throughout the!
circuit have been commenting on the
fact that k Outfielder Meloan, whom
Rock Island has reported as purchased
from St. Paul, is going to accompany
the St. Paul team on its trip south in
the early part of April. .The impres
sion Is given that Meloan is still the
property of St. Paul and that the local
club may not get him. This Is not the
case, however, as Meloan has been
purchased outright." He still looks
good to St. Paul, however, and that
club has asked leave for him to ac-
company the team on its trip south in
order that he may be given a thor
ough tryout. In case he looks like too
fast a man to be allowed to let go, St.
Paul will attempt to buy him back.
but they will have to pay just what the
local association asks for him in that

BOWLERS f EASTED
, Juvenile baseball enthusiasts are unable to withstand1 such weather as today, and the result is that they
have taken the bit in their teeth aud refused to wait '-longer before commencing the game. A team of boys whose
name the Rock Island Sluggers is several times ns large as the largest and huskiest member of the team, gath
ered together this morning in a vacant lot ion Twenty-eighth street and commenced operations for the year.- Aa
soon as they were done with a practice game, three of them hurried to The Argua office to hunt up the "feller

organization deserved. When they found him, they imparted considerable information and took up as much of
his time as several ordinary league games would have done. They wanted every one to know that they were to
be managed this year by Roy Stapleton, whose 14 years in this world gives him that position without any argu
ment. James Hughes was selected to act as captain because he is a husky young fellow and appears to be a
good slugger if the occasion ever arises and the umpire is m need of chastisement. Manager Stapleton announc
ed that he has signed up about 22 players, 10 of whom are mascots. He issues a challenge to any 14-year-old
boys' , team in the world, but preferably Rock Island or Moline, to play a game for the , championship of the
same, and he says-, that the mail man should be instructed to carry, any answers to this challenge to his parental
domicile at 2709 Sixth avenue. -. ' v . . .. ..
It is the intention . of the boys to have a permanent organization, arid they have selected Roy , Stapleton
president, 'William Mayers vice president, Louis Wilson secretary, and James Hughes treasurer. . The latter has
charge of the, first 25 cents .which has been collected towards buying the blue and red suits which the team will
appear iu when engaged in championship games. ., w . . ; .

The basketball game last evening
between the Augustana first team and
the high school resulted in the favor
of the high school by the scOre ofJ'l
to 78. v The game was-the last one io
be played on the local high school
gymnasium floor and was undoubtedly
the best and closest. W hen the .close
of the game was near the crowd set
up such a noise that it was nearly im
possible ty hear the referee's whistle.
The game was marked by the' rough
ness and the inability of, bqtb. sides
to throw baskets. . Time and again the
ball would hang on the edge of " the
basket and then topple off. The
Augustana rooters were at the game
in full force and the competition in
yelling between the high school and
Augustana rboters held the crowd in
intense interest " at all times. Taa
game was close and exciting during
the first half, the score ending 10 to 9
.in favor of the high school. Durin
the second half the team work of the
high school made them many baskets
and they completely outclassed thei
