West Ends of Moline and West
Ends of Davenport Meet
SELECT EXPOSITION PARK
Contest Will Tke Place ou Xeutral
Grounds Moline Team Aims ,
to Have Clear Title.
The West Ends of Moline, the win-t
ners in the contest played Sunday
with the East Ends of Moiine, will
play a game in this city next Sunday,
although not against a local team.
The West Ends of Davenport, whQ
claim a right to contest for the tri-r
city championship title, will be the
opponents of the Moline boys and,
another good game is looked for.
Early in the season the Davenport
team played the East Ends of Moline
to a tie. 0 lo u. and since that time
they claim to have strengthened
somewhat. In case the Iowans
should succeed in defeating the Mo
liners, or even holding them to a
small score, it will give the Maroons
of this city a chance to try to re-t
claim the honors which the Rock Is-t
laud Independents lost recently when
they went down before both the Moi
line teams. The Maroons held the!
Davenport team to a 0 to 0 score and
they feel confident of their ability
to make either of the Moline teams;
hump some to beat them. Sunday's
contest will practically decide wheth
er this city will have another look at
the championship title or not.
Aliu to Defeat Local.
The West Ends of Moline have ex
pressed a desire to play any team in
the three cities which aspires to the
title of tri-city champions. The rea
son for this is that the Moliners want
a clear claim, to the title, and they
feel that the proper way to get this
is to put all the claimants out of the
running rather than to depend upon
comparative scores. Because of this
desire, the Moliners will play in this
city Sunday rather than go to Mus
catine, where they are badly wanted.
The Muscatine management has made
all kinds of offers in order to get
the prospective tri-city champs down
there, not because they think they
could defeat the Moliners, but be
cause they would be a great drawing
card. This had no weight witn the
West Ends, however, and they have
decided to play here.
Gamr at Kxposltloa Park.
The Moliners and the Davenporters
will play at Exposition park on the
new gridiron which was laid off there
for, the high school team and which
is one of the best in the west. The
contest will be of considerable inter
est locally because of the presence
of three Rock Island players on the
Moline team. There ought to be a
large crowd out for the game because
the Moline contingent will be down
in force and a goodly number will
come from Davenport, while this city
will furnish, a majority of the root
ers. Local followers of tlie game are
auxious to see the Moline team play
because its. work in the game last
Sunday stamped it as one of the
best independent football teams
which has ever represented any cf
the three cities and its plays go off
with a smoothness and power which
makes it a pleasure to watch it. The
ame will commence at 3 o'clock.

The national commission censures
the National Association of Minor

list the names of 5G players who hava
been sold to the major leagues and

names. Time was when the minors
thought it better to include the names
of sold and drafted players in their
reserve list as a measure of precau

sidered running a risk to drop them.

Crew on Ambitious Expedi

on one of Its trips this morning mem
bers of the crew noticed a 3-year-old
boy who was alone and who appeared
to have no disposition to go ashore.
He was questioned and it was found
ho had run away from home. He said
his name was Ralph Hall and he lived
near Long View park. He was escort
ed up town on this side, and was later
taken home by M. p. McLaughlin, a
neighbor, who recognized him. Little
Ralph, It turned out. had started to
pay a visit to Davenport. He did not
seem to think his trip alone was any
thing out of the ordinary. He said he
had come down town without any old

evidently he had decided it was about

Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 20. Accord
ing to charges made against the Ma
bray gang, under arrest in Iowa for
alleged swindles in various parts f
the United States, prize fighters,
wrestlers, turfmen, foot racers and f.l
most every class of athletes, except
baseball players, have been engaged
in gigantic deals for several years
past fleecing the victims of various
amounts, totaling above a million.
"The scope of the Mabray gang is
wide-reaching and some prominent
people will be involved before long."
says United States Inspector J. S.
Swanson. "We have evidence tend
ing to show that a majority of the
wrestling matches are framed up be
fore the men meet and that many
boxing bouts are pre-arranged to catch
the sucker. We have a witness who
told us that the Gotch-Hackenschmidt
was the only genuine wrestling match
decided in many years. There will be
at least half a hundred fighters noiv
before the public that will be drawn
into cases against Mabray and his
gang, who seem to have worked fron

The regimental rifle shoot which
