THE GAME IS Of!
Des' Moines Western Leaguers
Battling - With Islanders
STARK IS NOT IN LINEUP
Ileason Therefor Is That There Has
lieen a Misunderstanding as to
The Des Moines team is in the city
today and this afternoon the game
with the local organization is on. Jaok
Tighe's team is in excellent shape and
the usual lineup will be used. It waa
undecided just who would do the twirl
ing, but Jack figures that it doesn't make
much difference as he believes any
of his slab men can turn the trick.
The game was called at 3 o'clock.
Stark t in (juiiie.
Claude Stark is not in the game this
afternoon, and thereby hangs a doleful
tale. A couple of weeks ago the Rock
Island management received an offar
from Manager Finn of Little Rock for
the sale of Stark and a reply was sent
that the terms were acceptable, pro
vided tlie player would work for thu
Three-Eye salary limit. Finn's only
response was to send Stark on. Oa
arriving here the latter seems to have
first discovered that there was
a salary limit, and hence he hesi
tated to sign for less than he was re
ceiving last year. So there you are.
Stark1 was willing to play today buc
Manager Tighe thought best to guard
against possible complications. The
local management has no disposition
to be harsh with Stark, who does not
seem to he to blame, but the player is
a great favorite here and it is hoped
most earnestly that he will be able to
see his way to attach his name to a
Ticket Sale l Slow.
The time for buying the $1 tickets
to the first game at Island City
ball park is rapidly passing and as yet
the management reports that the sale
has not been altogether satisfactory.
The cold weather seems to have had a
benumbing effect on the ticket sellers
and as a result they have about ceased
their exertions. When it is remem
bered by the fans that buying a ticket
means that 50 cents will be dpnated
to the club treasury, their hands ought
to go down deep in their jeans to rake
up the necessary plunk.
The game in Davenport tomorrow
afternoon will be called at 3:15 in
stead of 3 in order that the local fans
can get to the Davenport ball park
in time to witness the whole game.

It turns out that Clinton's independent

affair between Clinton and Sterling.
The aggregation that has been gotten
together by Manager Mammen for
Sterling will split its dates. When
playing at Sterling It will be known

the nom de plume will be switched.
On the road It is to be the "Clinton

in the Sterling papers. This being un

Island City Boating Association
Considers Broadening .
- Scope, ...
TO CHANGE THE -BY-LAWS
Report f Committee Canvassing for
. Funds is Made Voto of Thanks
for Donors. '
Tiie island City Boating association
held one of the best . attended meet
ings in its history last: evening and
considerable business was transacted.
A clause ' .in the constitution . which
prevents residents of this county from
enjoying the right to come intb the
club as non-resident members, was dis
cussed and a committee of four men
was appointed to revise the ''clause
and report at the next meeting; with
the amendment. - As there are a num
ber of people outside of the city, who
wish to join the club but do not feai
fble to take out a full membership
because they cannot. take advantage
of the privileges, it was thought ad
visable to so change the constitution
as to make them eligible for non-resident
The club selected four delegates to
represent the local club at the confer
ence of the Mississippi Power Boat
association which meets during the re
gatta at Burlington July 5. C.and 7.
C. L. Beardsley, W. T. Chambers, T.
E. Carson and H. W. Bennett were ap
pointed as delegates and as their alter
nates G. A. Jencke, George E. Bailey,
Edward Brien and Ralph D. MacManus
were named. Each club belonging lo
the M. P. B. A. is entitled to four dele
gates for every 100 members and the
local club at present has about 115
members In good standing. Eight new
members were balloted upon last even
ing and all of them, were voted into
the club. They are Frank F. Fiebig.
D. C. Strecker. H. L. Sieghartner, R. E.
Snow, A. L. MacDonald, J. WV. Larson,
W. H. Tiekens and A. R. Bergston.
Hope to Pay Debt.
The finances of the club have a'very
bright . outlook at .present due to the
activity of the financial committee
which has been making a canvas for
funds during the last month. Already
nearly $400 has been raised in this
way to clear off the debt incurred by
the club in building its club house and
preparing a harbor, and it is- the hope
of the committee that the full amount
of $500 which is the goal for which
the committee has been striving, wnl
be realized. '
The committee has met with such a
warm reception in its canvass, -that tb
club adopted by a, rising; vote, a reso
lution of thanks; to those who have
already subscribed to. the fund' and
also to those who will' do, likewise n
completing the fund ;by thei addition
of another hundred dollars. The reso-
ution adopted was as follows:
Resolved, That a rising vote of
thanks be extended to the generous
public who have so kindly assisted us
in our solicitation for funds thus far;
not only for their financial subscrip
tion, but for their kind words -and
well wishes; and be it also .
Resolved, That a copy of this-reso
lution be published in the newspapers
of Rock Island. Be it further ;
Resolved, . That an honorary mem
bership card be sent to all those who
subscribed $5" or . more to our fund,
together with a printed copy of -this
resolution. - cl
Resolved, That a Sunday be set
apart in the near future when all of
our boats with engineers be placed at
the disposal of . these people,' for a
cruise and picnic."
It is likely that enough boat owne.-s
will be gathered together next Sunday
morning to allow the booms to. be
brought down to the harbor from. their
winter quarters in the slough. ' It was
hoped to do this last Sunday, but the
rain and the fact that only a few
launches were in the water prevented
it. . '
The Cnpn More Fostrd.
From all Indications, the races which
the club will hold this year will have
more than ordinary Interest attached
to them on account of the fine prizes
which have been offered. In addition
to the beautiful loving cup given To
the club last year by Jacob Ramser,
the jeweler, three more cups are lo
be raced for this year. One of them
was donated by Mr. Ramser, another
by Fred Bleuer, the jeweler, and the
other Is a cup for owners of Lockwood
Ash motors. .W. H. Driggs of Moline,
who is agent for . the motor, is the
donor of the cup and it is to become
the property of someone whose boats
contains a Lockwood Ash motor. The
