Number of Change Suggested by

. It looks as though the Three-Eye
schedule is to be adopted this spring
without Rock Island having a voice in
the proceedings, further than was ex
pressed at the meeting at Chicago.
This morning local officers were in
formed by the Chicago dailies that the
new draft that Wilson Bering had pre
pared had been voted upon by the var
ious clubs and a number of objections
had been made to it, so much dissatis
faction being expressed that it would
be necessary to make important
changes. These Mr. Tearney hoped to
look after within a few days.
Sent l.nit 1elt.
It has been generally understood
that the new schedule had. been sent
out last week, but none was received
here. President W. H. Reck, on re-v

failed to find it in his mail. Not till
noon today was the letter from Mr.
Bering delivered. It was mailed in
Chicago last Friday and the date on

local postoffice on the same day. Where

President Reck had tried to get into
communication by phone with Presi

why no vote had been received from
this city and demand an opportunity

Los Angeles, Cal., March 16. Billy
Sullivan, the veteran catcher of the
Chicago Americans, is undergoing
treatment today to prevent lockjaw.
Sullivan stepped on a rusty nail Satur
day at Chutes park and was stricken
with blood' poisoning. There was an
operation yesterday to overcome this
but there is still danger of tetanus
developing. Friends of Sullivan who
became alarmed at his condition tele
graphed his wife to come at once. The
player's physicians say they hope to
have him in- condition to don a uni

ter a section rich in historic data.
Nelson county, Kentucky, is famed
the world over for its whisky, and
and Bardstown is the county seat. It
is a safe gamble that of the 80,000,000
persons in the United States, few out
side of Kentucky know that here lies
the body of Lieutenant John Fitch of
the New Jersey volunteers in the Con
tinental army. That does not signify
much, but when you add that Fitch
had a steamboat plying the waters of
the Delaware river 17 years before Ful
ton started up the Hudson in the Clair-
mont, one takes notice.
It was in a little pool, near the pres
ent bridge over the creek which sep
arates Bardstown from Federal Hill,
that Fitch tried the model of his steam
engine. The one and a Half story
brick house, where he lived, a stone's
throw from the pool, is still standing
and occupied by a negro family. His
grave is unkempt in a cemetery where
the pigs and cattle roam. In the rear
of the Hotel Newman, which was built
117 years ago. About a year ago the
Daughters of the Confederacy placed
a simple marker at the head of the
grave. They are now trying to raise
money for a suitable monument.
Ketchel-Klaus Date Is Set.
