The West End and the East End
football teams of Moline will meet
again tomorrow for the second time
this year. The game will be played
at Athletic park in Moline and will
commence at 3 o'clock. . If the weather
Is fair a large crowd Is expected to
turn out, as the game will be one of
the best of the year on the dope which
is handed out from both teams. When
they met several weeks ago a crowd
of 2,000 people turned out and all of
them were satisfied that they had
seen one of the fastest football games
which W3S ver played in Moline be
tween independent teams.
"West Ends. Have Beat Record.
So far this year the West Ends have
the best record of any team in the
state, and their claim upon the state
championship is much stronger than
that of any other aggregation. The
East Ends succumbed to them in the
first game they played this year by a
score of 12 to 0, but the teams were
apparently evenly matched, and if the
East Ends have strengthened their
team since, as they claim to have done,
the game tomorrow ought to be ex
tremely close, and it may be that the
tables will be turned on the West
Ends. The latter team is not in as
good shape as it was for the previous
game, as several of the men are on
the hospital list. They will all be in
the game, however, as far as is now
known, and they will play to retain
their laurels. The victory of three
weeks ago was the first one which the
West Ends have ever tasted at the ex
pense of the East Ends, and. for this
reason the East Ends are all the more
anxious to win from the West Ends in
the game tomorrow.
Peoria Wakes Up.
The Peoria Socials, with whom the
West Ends played a tie game earlier
In the season, have finally found it to
their advantage to plead with the
West Ends for another game on the
grounds that it will decide the state
championship. Ever since the tie and
up until the game with Spring Valley,
the West Ends have been trying to ar
range a game with the only team
which has not fallen before them this
year, but the Peorians fought shy and
absolutely refused to play either in
Moline or In Peoria, or in a neutral
town after the close of the season.
After defeating Spring Valley by a
larger score than Peoria did, the West
Ends decided to rest their claim to
the state championship on comparative
scores, as they had defeated both
Spring Valley and the East Ends by a
larger score than the Peoria Socials
had succeeded in doing. The Moline
team's claim has been admitted as
good by most of the teams in the state,
and now the Social3 feel that their
only chance of breaking into the lime
light is by doing what thoy refused to
do earlier in the season.
Ifo Word Received Here.
Accordingly their manager has caus
ed the Peoria papers to print the news
of his having challenged the West
Ends to a game for the state cham
pionship. As yet the West End man
agement has not received the chal
lenge, and it is doubtful if he will con
sider it if he does, as tho dates which
were held open for Peoria for three j
weeas nave nnauy Deen mied.
The game tomorrow has no real
bearing on the state championship, as
to all intents and purposes the East
Ends are out of the running.

Among the cases in dispute over
players decided by "toe national board
of arbitration at IJemphis yesterday
were several involving 'Three-Eye
league teams. ' Connie Walsh, the
promising young Peoria pitcher, was
given hi3 freedom. He claimed that
ho did not sign a contract and was nat
therefore subject - to : reservation.
Bloomington and Toledo settled a dis
pute over Pitcher Steen in which. $700
and the matter did not come up for
discussion. Pitcher Rufu3 Gilbert
filed a claim against Peoria over un
paid salary which was allowed.
Bloomington has signed Joe : (Dad)
Keenan as- manager for next year. Joe
la credited with having furnished tho
brains that .brought the team in a con
tender at tlio finish, being the adviser
of Manager Novacek and captain of
the infield. Dad is old enough to
know the game, goodness knows.
SEXTON IS BACK
President of National Associa

GOOD MEETING AT MEMPHIS
Iargo Amount of Business Disposed
of in Harmonious Manner
Next Session in Chicago.
M. H. Sexton returned last night
from Memphis, where the annual
meeting of the delegates of the Na
tional Association of Minor Leagues
came to a close Thursday evening. Mr.
Sexton will continue as president of
the organization for another year, he
having been reelected to the office.
"The meeting," said Mr. Sexton to
an Argus representative today, "was
one of the best the association has
ever held. It was not the largest
meeting by any means, but the amount
of business and the satisfactory way
in which it was disposed of stamps the
convention as a most successful one.
The greatest of harmony existed
among the delegates and everything
went off smoothly."
Larger City Knvored.
The next meeting of the delegates
to tho association will be held next
year at Chicago. Although the citi
zens of Memphis treated the visitors
in a magnificent manner and gave
them no reason to complain on either
their accommodations or the entertain
ment afforded them while at the convention;-
it was the general desire to
go to the larger cities in the future
to hold the convention. For this rea
son Chicago was selected for the an
nual convention in 1910.

be sold at $50 each and the intention
is to interest as many men as possible
in order to get away from tho one-man
plan under which the game has been
allowed to play out in the city.
Ned Egan has again been selected
as manager of the BuTlington team.
Before signing he demanded a guaran
ty of an attendance of 40,000 and a
bonus of $2,500, he to assume full re
sponsibility, financial and otherwise
for the team. He was given all he de
manded. The Bloomington association is lin

its work yesterday and adjourned to
meet again in July in New York City,
which meeting will principally be de
voted to the important work of re
classifying the leagues. Nearly f0
cases were passed on by the board
during the day.
The board favorably considered th
application of J. J. Bower of Belle
fonte. Pa., and the application seeking
a new state league in Pennsylvania
was referred to Secretary Farrell. The
award of the South Atlantic pennant
to Chattanooga was upheld and Au

Football championship hopes of high
and low degree are likely to be jarrod
before another sun sets. With the cur
tain going up today on all but the last
act of the gridiron .drama there will e
some hustling for what remains of the
season's moleskin honor and glory.
It Is a day of "big" games at all
points of the compass. In the west'
the center of attention Is on Madison;
where .two undefeated teams Minne
sota and Wisconsin clash for. a pia?e
at tho top of the heap. At Evanstou
Northwestern and Illinois meet, but
there probably will .bo less heartburn
ings after the contest there than at
many another spot, for the champion
ship bauble for both has already been
punctured. In Iowa, Ames and the
University of Iowa will try to keep as
near to the top of the state procession
as gameness and luck will allow.
Tho battle at Madison should practi
cally decide the western champion
ship. If Minnesota wins the confer
ence title goes to the Gophers. Should
tho Badgers prove the better .Wiscon
sin will only have to beat Chicago
university to annex the glory.

In the east the invasion of the two
western elevens divide attention with
the Princeton-Yale battle at New Ha
ven and the Harvard-Dartmouth
struggle at Cambridge. And there
will be some eliminations all rig't
after the final kick-off, although in the
case of a number of teams this phase
has already been attended to. Chicago,
defeated by Minnesota, will meet Cor
nell, tramped on by Harvard and oth
ers, so the contest simmers down to
survival of the fittest of the two teams
In Philadelphia, Michigan, which has
a score to settle since last year, will
endeavor to put the University of
Pennsylvania out of polite football so

though by teams not counted strictly
in their class, according to their own

TURN AT A RECORD
Drives Fiat Car 50 Miles in 40:14:02
at Atlanta One Auto
Atlanta, G a., Nov. 13. George Rob
ertson's record breaking drive In the
50-milo free-for-all and a hair raising
escape for H. J. Kiipatrick and his
mechanician, P. Church, when Kilpat
rlck's Pope-Toledo car exploded and
was incinerated, furnished the real
thrillers yesterday on the Aalanta two
mile motor speedway.
Driving like a flend, Robertson shot
his Fiat "Sixty" around the half-century
in 40:14:02. The previous record
of 44.21.2 was established by Johnny
Altken of the National racing staff.
Strang had tire trouble and was forced
from the event after a terrillc contest.
The accident to Kiipatrick occurred
just after the Pope-Toledo had reeled
off two iuiics in 1:33. The car was
"hitting" 7Q miles an hour when a cyl
inder, exploded. A sheet of flame 20
feet in length swept back, and the ma
chine, skidding, crashed agaiust the
fence, hurling Kiipatrick and Church
150 feet away, both men alighting
with minor injuries in a pile of brush.
The asphaltum covering of the
course was ignited by the burning
wreck and furnished a fiery spectacle
for some time before it was extin
guished. The car, valued at $25,000,
was built to enter the Vauderbilt cup
race and was the property of Asa Can
dler, president of the Speedway com
pany. . .
Lewis Strang scored a runaway in
the two-mile free-for-all, winning eas
ily in 1:34.47. Rutherford in a Stearns
took the 24-mile amateur race In
20:33.25. The 20-mile handicap race

FIRST IN DAVENPORT
Governor Deneen Honors Requisition
From Executive of Neighbor
, According to a telegram received
yesterday afternoon by Chief of Po
lice Atkinson at Davenport, from As
sistant County Attorney F. A. Cooper,
who has gone to Sprinsfleld to se
cure the necessary requisition papers
for H. N. Ordway's extradition, Dav
enport has secured first right to Ord
way's presence in that city, where it
is alleged he passed forged checks
and on several other banks in the
three cities. The telegram received
read as follows:
"Difficulty and objections with
drawn. Papers granted giving, first
rights. On to Chicago immediately
via Chicago & Alton."
From the Inference to be drawn
from the above, it is to be concluded
that Davenport has secured the nec
essary requisition papers - for Ord
way's detention in that city. He will
be arraigned in the district court on
the charge of forgery. As soon as
Attorney Cooper can reach Chicago
the papers will be served on Ordway
and he will be most probably brought
to Davenport by Detective John Quinn,
who at present is in Chicago await
ing Ordway's . release.
. A second telegram . from Spring
field further confirmed that Gover
nor Deneeh has honored the requisi
tion from Iowa's governor.
