TELLS THE FACTS
Springfield State Register Ex
plains Nature of Trouble
AND DIGS UP SOME HISTORY
Seems That Dick Has Failing of His
Kind in Wanting to Run Busi
ness of Others.
The Springfield State Register
digs up a little of Dick Kinsella's
unsavory baseball history in the fol
lowing account of the trouble that
has resulted in the barring of Jimmy
Dix, the sporting writer of the pa
per, from the Springfield ball park:
"So many inquiries are coming to
the State Register from local base
ball fans and from newspapers
around the Three-Eye league cir
cuit relative to the action of Dick
Kinsella in threatening the staff of
the State Register and issuing an or
der that Sporting Editor " Jimmie"
Dix could not enter the local ball
grounds, the State Register is pleas
ed to draw aside the curtain and
present the situation in its true
light Mr. Kinsella, attempting to
dictate how a newspaper must report
"First of all, the State Register en
tertains no animosity toward Dick
Kinsella. If there is any animosity
it is on his side. He has done all
the attacking. He has done all the
threatening. He alone is "sore." In
this little matter his is a complete
monopoly of animosity. The only
thing the State Register has done is
to retain the right to run this news
paper to suit its management, .rath
er than as Dick Kinsella may dic
tate. The Caaun Brill.
"The article to which Kinsella
took exception was originally pub
lished in the St. 'Louis Globe. It
was clipped and used in the Decatur
Review that evening and published
in the Register the next morning. It
came just a few days after the Kin-sella-Hickman-White
affair at the
ball park and the Bresnahan-Cin-
cinnati-McGinnls controversy in the
National league. The article, head
lines and all, said: 'Bresnahan and
Kinsella President Kinsella of the
Springfield Three-Eye league club
was a visitor in the stand. ; Some
one should have properly introduced
Kinsella, who licked an umpire in
the Three-Eye league last week, to
Bresnahan, who would like to lick
a couple in the National league even
with his damaged hand, but 'dasn't.'
"While Kinsella's fight mentioned
in the above was more in the nature
of helping out the umpire against
diminutive Hickman of Davenport
than a battle with the umpire.
events of former years would give
license for presumption that he was
in battle with the umpire over some
real or fancied wrong. He struck
Umpire Wheelock a couple of years
ago, and only last year got Into a

"Kinsella confronted the Regis
ter's baseball writer the day follow
ing the reprinting of the Globe's
item, and resorted to oaths and
threats and finally Jimmie . Dix
laughed and walked away. The next
day Dix dropped the 'games today'
"While the publishing of the
games today is a matter cf news to
many, it is a source of revenue to
Kinsella. . s . s
!'The Sunday following Jack Mc
Carthy and his team were here and
the 'games today were missing from
the State Register. .That it pays to
advertise is shown by the fact that
Kinsella has 6tated, according to a
Story received in this offce, that the
absence of the 'games today' In the

Pure silk hose 50c
sporting pages of the Sunday Regis
ter cost him $100.
"That night Kinsella ran into
Jimmie Dix in a cigar store. Bitter
words ensued, and Kinsella, asking
why the 'games today' schedule was
not run, was emphatically informed
by Dix that they were left out be
cause of the actions of the magnate
at the park, the Wednesday pre
vious. In this regard Jimmie Dix
said 'There has been no .notice of
your games in the Register for sev
ral days unless you have been car
rying that little 'ad' you used to run.'
"Kinsella has interpreted that as an
attempt to coerce him into advertis
ing. He declares the reason for
leaving out the schedule was because
the little 'ad' was not run. Mr. Kin
sella is mistaken if he thinks that
advertising figured in any way, di
rectly or indirectly, in whatever
course Dix and the State Register
may have pursued in this matter.
"The team went to Daniille and
when it returned with Peoria here,
Jimmie Dix was at the game,' but
not in the press box.' Kinsella knew
he was there. The trouble had ap
parently blown over, and though re
lations were strained to an extent
the State Register's sporting depart
ment was ready to boost the game as
usual. Dix is strong for the 1910
Senators, as they are a bunch of
good fellows. From Smith down to
the bat boy they are gentlemen. No
member of the team has ever com
plained of Dix.
Would Make Dix th Goat.
The climax to the trouble came
last Monday. The team came home
from the north. The schedule of
'games today was in the paper, but
Kinsella was mad because there was
not a special story on the return of
the team and the fact that Rock
Island would play here. Notwith
standing his animosity toward Dix,
the story of the team's return might
have been written anyway, but an
over-supply of baseball news, due to
the many independent games, pre
vented the running of such free lo
cals as Kinsella expected. That led
to his barring order against Jimmie
uix. personally, on Monday, and the
retraction of his barring orders
against other State Register report
ers, as contained in a letter which
is on file in this office. Kinsella is
obviously endeavoring to make Jim
mie Dix a goat, an animal which the
State Register refuses to permit Dix
to impersonate to gratify the local
"If Dick Kinsella wants to run a
baseball nine, that's all right. He
is a baseball genius in the picking
of players and organizing pennant
winning teams. The State Register
prints the news about' it. Didjk Kin
sella's business in this matter is
running a ball nine. The State Reg
ister's business is printing the news.
We owe that to our 17.000 subscrib
ers, not one of whom has ever made
a request that we let Dick Kinsella
tell us who we shall send to report
the news or how we shall report it.
The State Register sends whom it
pleases and with the Implicit instruc
tions to 'get the news and print it
without fear or favor.' That's what
the public wants.
Dick Very KenaltlTe.
"If Dick Kinsella wants to lick an
umpire, that's his business. . It is
the business of the State Register to
tell Its readers about it. If the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat prints a
squib about Dick Kinsella's reported
'run-in with an umpire,- there is
nothing in the ethics of journalism
to prevent our stating what the St.
Louis Globe said or to comment upon
it. That's what made Dick Kinsella
mad at the start. We reprinted a
little squib from the St. Louis paper
about him, and he gave our reporter
a vehement and eloquent cursing.
There were a few days following that
the State Register didn't print the
schedule of 'games today.' This
made Dick Kinsella madder. The
State Register wasn't being run to
suit him. He said our reporters
'would have to watch his ball games
from the top of a C, P. & St. L. box
car if we watched aLall. He was
demonstrating his animosity .
"To show Mr. . Kinsella that the
State Register entertained no ani
mosity toward him. the State Regis
ter bought three good seats, sent
three men out to his ball lot and
printed three separate stories of his
ball game. We gave our readers
all the news, but Mr. Kinsella still
insisted our reporters would not be
admitted to the grounds on peril of
their lives, or words to that effect.
Illnlorr Ilepeata Itaelf
"In 1908 when Mr. Kinsella rush
ed upon the diamond during a dis
pute with an umpire, the State Reg
ister printed the fact. He threaten

from his ball lot because we printed
"When visiting newspaper men
came to this city from Peoria at one
time, Mr. Kinsella not only refused
to permit them to enter the ball
grounds after they had lined up to
purchase tickets, but he called II:

taken to the police station. A suit
for $10,000 against Kinsella Is pend
ing in Peoria county as a result and
Dick has not visited there since.
"Mr. Kinsella was mad because
the State Register printed the news
of his action at that time.

failed to please Dick Kinselal Is be
