Chicago, Oct. 12 (Special) Cir

the Three-Eye league, will not be
decided upon till next Tuesday, Oct.
19, in accordance with a decision ar
rived at by the magnates in their an
nual fall session at the Grand Pacilic
hotel here today. Likewise the elec
tion of officers was put over till the
same date. The holding of an ad
journed meeting was decided upon in
consideration for President Kinsella
of the Springfield team, whose father
was buried at Springfield yesterday
anil who was therefore unable to be
present, and was unable, as he stated
over the phone, to secure an accept
able represcntatice. A messace of
cotuloleuce was sent to the head of

that, in view of the absence of a rep
resentative from Springfield, all bus

The first matter to receive atten
tion was the raising of the season's
attendauce limit. After some discus
sion it was voted to increase the limit
from 30.000 to 35,oi0. not more
than 7 per cWWto be 10 cent tickets,
Decatur alone opposing.
Peoria raised the question of fix
ing a guarantee for visiting teams,
but it was decided to lay this over to
the adjourned . meeting. Adjourn
ment for lunch was then taken.

It had been expected that the mag

team this afternoon, and tickets
were distributed by the representa

ever, before the morning session was
ended, it was announced that the
game had been postponed on account
of the weather, a snow storm being
in progress, so it was decided to close
the business this afternoon. It is

When Albert Spalding Was Taken for
During Albert Spalding's triumphal
tour of the south last spring he visited
New Orleans, one cf the most musical
cities in America, and after a recital,
which took place on Saturday evening,
the Sunday papers contained gio.ving
accounts of it. The young violinist
had to catch an early morning train;
so. rushing up to the newsstand in the
hotel, he purchased ten copies of each
paper, and jani:ning his soft felt hat
down over his eyes, rtislu'd ns.dly for

WAS A MOD YEAR
Three-Eye League Never More
Prosperous as a Whole
Than in 1909.
OFFICIAL FIGURES SHOW IT
Aitendttiice I'.vcceded Only in 1JM17
Kock Island First in Several
Figures given on this page whis'i
were presented by President Sexton
at the Three-Eye league meeting at
Chicago today will probably make
some of the southern magnates who
I'ave been credited by their new.j
lajeis with releasing large volumes
cf hot air ia kicks on an unsatisfac
tory season sit up and take notice.
To begin with, the total attendance
this year was 339,511, or larger than
it has been tince the Kague wan
formed, with the exception of 19U7,
when it was 301,900. This will effect
ively check the talk of poor business
and will help to show those who think
they have cause for complaint that
they are merely paying up for the ex
cesses of other years. With expens
lower this year than for several sea
sons oast the clubs cannot as a rule
'fail to be in better shape than ia other
-k 1 mIii ml on Top.
Several matters gleaned from tV
table are of particular interest to Roc';
Island. This city led the league in at
tendance this year, being nearly 1,00
ahead of Davenport, the nearest com
petitor for the honor, though Daven
port drew a few more per game. Rock
Island received abroad more 1110:1 ?y
than any other team and in return
paid to visiting clubs more money
than any other team save Davenpor.
There has been made the claim that
Rock Island and Davenport have made
their good showing only in games be
tween themselves, Ieavin.? oatside
trains to FiiHVr. The figures show
that Rock Island paid Davenport and
Cedar Rapids more than any o'hr
clubs in the league: paid Bloomington
more than its old time- rival. Decatur:
paid Spiiagfleld more than any other
club save Davenport: paid Decatur
more thaa any other club cave Spring
field; paid Peoria more money than
its ancient rival. Springfield, and paid
Dubuque more than any other club
I.r:nl in Kif;h Vrltrw.
Reel; Island's total attendanc" sin-e
the league was formed is greater than
that of any otiier team, though Spring
field, with one less year in the game,
is a close second.
Have Made Many Kock Island Resi
No wonder scores of Rock Islaud
citizens grow enthusiastic-. It is
enough to make anyone happy to
find relief after years of suffering.
Public statements like the following
are but truthfully representations of
the daily work done in Rock Island
by Doan's Kidney Pills.
Mrs. William A. Pannell. CIS
Third avenue. Rock Island, 111., says:
"Nearly every member of my family
baa used Doan's Kidney Pills and
they have been so beneficial that we
consider them an excellent kidney
remedy. About a month ago 1 pro
cured a box of Doan's Kidney Fills
at the Harper House pharmacy und
it required but a few doses to re
lieve me of a severe attack of back
ache. Another member of my family
used this medicine at the saint! time
and was completely relieved of
ney disorders. We would
