Although old King Borea3 of the
northland withdrew most of hip co
horts last evening and left us today
without any rain, nevertheless Man
ager Jack Tighe felt that it would
be folly to play a game today with
the thermometer hanging just above
the freezing point, and the contest
with Waterloo was canceled with tne
consent of Manager Boyle of the
Boosters. The latter team came
down from Dubuque last evening and
today went to Davenport to play a
series of games, or at least the men
will rema'n for several days in hopes
of being able tq play.
Local fans regret very much their
inability to see the league's infanta
in action, as they are of considerable
interest here. They will be here the
second week after the schedule opens
however, and they will be cf just as
much interest then.
Tomorrow the Galesburg team in
the Central association is due for a
stay of three days.
