1300 3d Ave.
Richard Higglna, a young lnfielder
from Cardiff, 111., has been added to
the string of Islander recruits. Mana
ger Jack TIghe received bis contract
yesterday. The signing of the young
ster is the result of his having been
highly recommended to Manager Tighe
by a friend of the Islander boss. Hig-
gins played second base on a semi
professional team last year and made
a fine record, his hitting having been
a feature. With Otto Vogel of last
year's pennant winners back on the
job, and with several highly reputed
infielders from among the list of re
cruits, it does not seem at all proba
ble that Higgins will be able to break
into the ranks unless he is indeed
phenom, but Manager Tighe says he
has room in the training squad for all
the good men he can lay his hands on
as in case they cannot be used here
there are plentv of teams to whom
they can be sold.
Mclvor Comra to Terms.
E. O. Mclvor. the much-talked of
outfielder from the Mobile club for
whom Ilarry Swacina was traded at
the close of last season, has finally
come to terms with Rock Island after
having been a holdout for several
months. Mclvor played last year with
San Antonio, in the Texas league, and
at the close of the season Mobile
drafted him. This spring he joined
the Dallas club and made such a hit
there that Manager Gardner wrote
letter after letter to Manager Tighe
asking that Mclvor be sold to him or
exchanged. Mclvor also wrote stating
he did not want to come so far north
and asking to get away. The Islander
manager understood It was a case of a
little more money as far as Mclvor
was concerned. He didn't like the
tone of Gardner's incessant letters,
and he settled the matter by making
Gardner a proposition to release Mo
Ivor to him for $500. The Dallas
manager couldn't see more than $300,
and accordingly gave up his little
game, while Mclvor at last realized it
was up to him to play with Rock Is!
and or not at all. He did the proper
thing and wrote to Manager Tighe
stating that he will come here and
do his best to make good and repay
Tighe for all the trouble he has
caused. Mclvor has a classy record
as an outfielder and it seems assured
he will make the team probably as left
McDonnell Cane Settled.
Ed McDonnell of Detroit has also
fixed things up with the Islander
chief so that he will be here for a
chance in the outfield. McDonnell had
a strange tangle to get out of before
being able to sign with Rock Island
In the first place both Rock Island
and Baltimore claimed him and Secre
tary J. H. Farrell of the national as
sociation awarded him to Rock Island.
Then it developed that the club of
Lansing, in the Southern Michigan
league, had the best claim of all upon
the crack outfielder, and he was re
awarded, this time to the Michigan
leaguers. McDonnell wanted to join
Manager Tighe's Islanders, however,
and after considerable dickering he
bought his own release from Lansing
and was then free to sign a new Isl
ander contract, which he has done.
Looking: for Caatoffa.
Manager Forest Plass of Freeport is
to spend a week or so in this city after
the season opens in hopes that he can
pick up some of the men whom Mana
ger TIghe does not want and use them
in his new Northern association team.
Plass, who played with Dubuque last
year, part of the time having the dig
nity of manager, will work out with
the Islanders when they first report.
RAIN MARS LAST RACES
No Records Broken at Daytona Track
and Crowd is Irenched.
Daytona, March 25. A drenching
midday rain marred the final day's
program of the Daytona Beach auto
mobile carnival, and the 12,000 specta
tors who had come out with the firm
expectation of witnessing a repetition
of Wednesday's world breaking record
went away soaked and disappointed.
No records were broken, and the fea
ture of the day the 300 mile race for
a $5,000 trophy had to be cancelled
owing to the delay of more than an
hour caused by the storm. In the one
mile speed record trials some fast
running was witnessed, but none of
the well known racers was ably to ap
proach the record established by Bar
ney Oldfleld, although Oldfield him
self covered the distance in 0:27:88

San Francisco. Marcus Shaugnessy,

WEEK BEFORE THE
VERDICT IS OUT
National Commission Proposes

Kling Case. .
Cincinnati, Ohio, March 25. The
national baseball commission met here
today to consider the case of John
Kling, the famous catcher of the Chi
cago National league team, who re
cently applied for reinstatement. It
may bo a week or more before the
official finding of the commission is
given out. Members of the commis
sion consider the ruling in the case
to be of great Importance to the base
ball world and desire to mall it to all
newspapers so the evidence can be
published in full.
NEGRESS GOES ON BOND

saulting Norman Pindar, a puny negro,
The security was furnished by Mrs
Hannah C Walker, a negress. She

1910 Record Book Ready.
The Sporting News' Record book for
1910, published by Charles C. Spink
& Son of St. Louis, Mo., has made its
appearance and is a vast improvement
over the book issued last season. This
year it is much larger and the records
of past events on the diamond are
more interesting and show a more
careful selection. Besides containing
the records, that famous baseball epic,
"Casey at the Bat," also appears.
Schedules of the American and Na
tional leagues for the 1910 season are
given in concise form. A copy may
be obtained by writing the publishers
and enclosing a 2-cent stamp.

HIS WOES PILE UP
Frank Shaub, Former Islander
Outfielder, Being Prosecut
ed for Perjury.
RESULT OF DIVORCE CASE
Slight Lapse of Memory In Connec
tion With Matrimonial Affairs
Basis of Charges.
The troubles of Frank Shaub, the
former Rock Island outfielder, are
piling up. ' It will be recalled that he
went to Wisconsin, obtained a divorce
and remarried, and that It was subse
quently found that his divorce was
obtained fraudulently and it was set
aside through the efforts of his first
wife, who lives in this city. Then his
second wife also obtained a divorce
and is giving her assistance to the
state's attorney, who is prosecuting
Shaub for false swearing in connec
tion with his divorce. He is now
under bond for trial at Fond du Lac
Shaub in getting his divorce swore
that his first wife deserted him at Ot
tumwa, Iowa, June 7, 1906. The flies
of The Argus show that on that date
he played ball with the Rock Island,
team at Dubuque and that he made
two hits. It was several weeks later
that he was farmed to Ottumwa.
Gave Wrog Address.
Another "mistake' that Shaub made
was in swearing that his first wife re
sided at Harrlsburg, Pa., and the
papers were sent tnere ror service
upon her. Consequently she did not
learn of the proceedings for some
time and could not fight the case.
Shaub married Miss Vera Matthews
of Fond du Lac, eloping with her to
Michigan. His divorce was obtained
in the fall of 1908 and he was married
the following February.
Since becoming a resident of Wis
consin Sbaub nas aeveioped into a
bowler of more than local note, re
cently winning an individual match
with one of the Milwaukee cracks for
$500 a side.

Manager Chance of the Cubs has
traded Pitchers Knapp and Willis to
Lincoln for Catcher Nunamaker, the
backstop who was fanned to Dubuque
last season by the Western league
team and recalled near the end of the
season. Nunamaker has evidently
been picked as a possible successor
to John Kling.

been asked to report to Waterloo:
Catchers, Lizette, Searles and Har

Wilkes; third base, Chase; outfield

Grover Laudermllk Is making the
best showing of his baseball career in
practice with the Cardinals this spring
and Manager Bresnahan believes he
will make good. He pitched for the
regulars against the yannigans for
four Innings the other day and but one
hit was made off him, that one being
by Johnny Barkwell, his former team
mate. If Frank Donnelly ever contemplates
selling Kohley Miller, the former sec
ond baseman of the Islanders whom
he has signed for his Galveston team
to any Three-Eye league club he had
better look up the court records here
before pulling off the deal. Kohley
was signed for 1&07 with the Island
ers and was given advance money,
$50. He refused to report and did not
return the money. He was blacklisted
by the local club and indicted by the
grand jury for obtaining money under
false pretenses. Just how it is pos
sible for him to play with any regu
larly organized team is a problem.
