All is peace and quiet in the Three
Eye league today, but yesterday wad
one of the most stormy days in its
history. The delegates to the ad
journed session of the annual meet
ing, which was held at the Grand Pa
cific hotel in Chicago, locked horns on
several questions and it appeared for
a time that the matter would end in
a disruption of the league by the with
drawal of the southern clubs. The
two important maiUrn on which tin
delegates could not get together wer
the election- of a president to succeed
M. II. St'xlon of this city and the se
lection of a city to take the Cedar
lock all afternoon and numerous re
cesses were taken in. order that some
solution of the matter might be sug
gested or framed up. About 6 o'clock
Kinsella sprung what he considered
his trump card and the way he was
called on it was a caution.
Kinsella made a motion to the ef
fect that the four southern clubs, Peo
ria, Springfield, Bloomington and Dan
ville, be allowed to withdraw from the
Three-Eye league without prejudice.
The northern clubs were expecting
this proposal and James T. Hayes of
Davenport seconded the motion so
quickly that Kinsella and his cohorts
were taken clear off their feet.- John
son arose at once and explained to
Mr. Hayes what it would mean to tae
league if the southern cities withdrew
and began to qualify the previous mo
tion. Mr. Hayes and the northern
clubs assured the secessionists thai
they understood exactly, what the mo
tion entailed and that they were ready
for the question. With his bluff called
to a frazzle, Kinsella arose and with
drew his motion and substituted one
which called upon the president to ap
point a committee to draw up a reso
lution embodying the withdrawal id?a
on condition that the southern clubs
could organize a league and retain
Class B classification. He understood
at the time that this was an impossi
bility and the northern clubs hooted
at the idea, but expressed themselves as
being perfectly willing that the south
Withdrawal No Solution.
A recess of half an hour was taken
to allow Kinsella and Johnson to draw
up their resolution and when the meet
ing convened again it was presented.
It was a joke, however, as far as a
measure to settle the difficulties was
concerned, and no one took it seriously-
for a minute, and even the ones
who drew it up j nod in the laugh
which arose when it was read.
This left the convention right where
it started, in a deadlock. The northern
ol.i'js suggested, finally, that the .nat
ter be settled by the admission of

pion Abe Attel was given the decision
over Jimmy Moran, the Brooklyn
featherweight, at the conclusion of
their eight round bout last night .at
the Phoenix club. Moran was out
classed in every round, but took a
game beating and apparently was able
to continue several rounds at the
The betting was 10 to 7 that Moran
would not be on his feet at the end.
On account of considerable betting and
the fact that Attel did not extend him
self until the final three rounds, there
were charges hurled after the battle
to the effect that Moran was treated
leniently by the champion.
There was no clean knockdowns and
tne only damage received was a
bloody nose and a partly closed eye
by Moran as a result of -frequent jabs
from Attel. In the sixth round Moran
slipped and fell to the mat, but was
up before the count started. Attel
tried for a knockout in the seventh,
but fell from the force of his own

move, tho spectators were Impressed
a bit more by the Pittsburgcrs dash

Patsy teemed to be raining blows
from all points of the compass at once
but many of his thumps lacked steam
and went to the back of Coulon's head.
Cculon gamely took all that was given
him and drove in some savage re

Mr Johnson was anrointed to revise

vilie for a franchise. This motion was
possible because the meeting was an
adjourned session of the one at which
Danville was admitted. Kinsella wa3
thunderstruck at this action, but he
revived enough to move that the reso
lution, be laid on the table. The na
ture of the motion made it impossible
for Danville to vote on the proposed
reconsideration and the result was a
tie vote on the motion to tab! which
President Sexton decided by voting
against the tabling.

This precipitated the fight at the
very beginning of the convention and
there was no beating about Mia hush.
With the motion to table vo-cd down,
Mr. Van Galder called for a vote on
the original motion and agxin it was
a tie. This time, however, Mr. Sex

that city had gone ahead and spent
considerable money on the assumption
that it was a member of the Thre

at a deadlock.
It was on this vote that the internal
strife in the Bloomington association
was bared. Both E. D. Donnelly and
Holland claimed the right to cast the
Bloomington vote and tho matter was
aired before tho delegates. It ended
in Donnelly's agreeing to let Holland

One of the conditions on which
Waterloo secured the franchise of the
Cedar Kapids club was that it pay :o
Owner Broberg the sum of $1,250 to
recompense him for the losses he in
curred during the year. This was the
idea of the Waterloo club and it met
with the approval of the league di
rectors. Waterloo repeated its guar
antee of an attendance "of 45,000 peo
ple during the season, and a bond f
$2,000 is soon to be posted by tho
backers of the club to assure the other
Three-Eyo league clubs that the guar
antee is no idle boast. In case Water
loo fails to make good on the 45,000
proposition the difference between
that number and the actual attend
ance will be taken out of the bond.
Another condition laid down was that
Waterloo will withdraw at the end cf
the year without any trouble if the
remainder of the league so rules.
Sot President Pleased.
Mr. Tearney, in talking to an Argus
etaff representative after his election,
expressed himself as greatly pleased
with his selection and hoped that he
would be able to fill Mr. Sexton's place
in an acceptable manner. Mr. Tearney
owes his election to the boom
launched in the columns of The Argus
by a number of Chicago newspaper
men sometime ago. He has had considerable-
experience In baseball af
fairs and he Is in the game because he
likes it and. not because he needs the
pecuniary rewards for his services.
Mr. Sexton expressed himself as well
pleased with the results of the meet
ing and stated that he believed an
other prosperous year was ahead of
the Three-Eye organization.
Joint Seaalon Held.
Half an hour during the" afternoon
eets of delegates agreed that joint ses
sions in the future were desirable and
that considerable good to both parties
would come from them.
The Central later at a separate
meeting voted to admit Monmouth
into the circuit, taking the existing
vacancy for which Cedar Rapids was
a bidder. The Central's circuit is
now in ideally compact form.
