Bloomington, 111., July 22. (Special)
With the score 3 to 0 in favor of the
champs and everything running
6moothly Queisser stubbed his toe in
the sixth Inning yesterday, and before
he got straightened up and going
again six Bloomers were across the
plate. Frank Lakaff hurried to the
rescue, but arrived too late. The final
rount "was 7 to 4.
The Islanders did well to score four
runs, in view of the brand of ball
Royer was pitching. Had it not been
for the one unfortunate session the
quartet would have been amply suffi
cient. It was booster day for Bloom
ington and the crowd was considera
In the third inning Melchior missed
Snyder's grounder, Vogel forced the
runner at second on a bunt and Royer
walked Queisser and Callahan, filling
the bags. Davidson hit to Staten, who
threw to first, Snyder scoring on the
out. Then Manusch rolled an easy
one safe through the infield and Queis
ser and Callahan came home. Manusch
slied trying to steal.
In the seventh Kelly hit safely, took
second on Snyder's out, and scored
when Nunamaker threw wild to first
on a short hit in front of the plate by
Biff JVotse In Sixth.
Bloomington made its big noise all
In the sixth. Kecnan and Long were
both passed and Nunainaker bunted
safely, jamming the cushions. Queis

home. Roudebush flew to Callahan,

drive settled the fate cf Queisser. La- j

the performance with a wild pitch and
Staten registered the sixth run. Royer
flew to right and Godwin whiffed. Long
who was passed in the seventh, scored

BENJAMIN. AND HIS "REAL" BALL JOSSERS!
CoLUSCTION OF" C?Lf2i 'BML
There were 171 paid admissions at
the game at Peoria Wednesday,
which, as the Star observes, drives
another nail into the baseball coffin
of the city.
Hank Weaver, the Louisville
pitcher, being informed he was to
have another trial with the Chicago
Cubs, fanned St. Paul batters, but
lost the game through poor support.
Perl Holycross is to become a regu
lar player in the Davenport lineup,
being used to pitch only in cases of
emergency. He will be ployed either
in right or on first. Lefty Geyer will
be released and in case Holycross
goes to first Foutz will be played in
right. While the club it on the look
out for more pitchers the staff for the
present will be composed of Smith,
Archer, Nelson and Pinnance. Lind-

Later he removed his uniform and
left the clubhouse.

nolm, the outfielder who has been sent
home to Chicago, has signed for next
season, being one of the first players
in the league to contract for 1911.
Dubuque will stay in the Threes
Eye league, at least for the present.
At a meeting of stockholders of the
club last night it was voted to at
tempt to dispose of the $3,500 worth
of unsold stock of the club. Should
this be taken up it will put the club
in good shape for the remainder of
the season. There has been talk of
Dubuque selling its franchise to
Quincy, but it is difficult to see how
such a deal could be put through
now. When there is a reapportion
ment of territory next fall such an
arrangement might be made, but now
it would require the consent of all
the cities in the Central association,
and it is not likely that this could
be obtained, just at the present time.
LEMONS IN DEALS
Seldom Does a Trade of Play
ers Turn Out Satisfactorily
to Both Sides.
STRONG POINT WITH CUBS
In Nearly Every Case Chicago Na
tionals Have Profited by Kx
Baseball history is full of trade in
which one club was stung badly, and
there are really only a few instances
where both clubs apparently had rea
son to be satisfied. Rather queer when
it is known that seldom are trades
made on the spur of the moment.
Sometimes the interested managers
and magnates will spar for weeks and
months before completing the details,
and then one party discovers that it
has been beautifully gold bricked.
The Chicago Nationals have always
had the better of their trades. For in
stance. Murphy several years ago trad
ed "Buttons" Brlggs. Jimmy Casey,
Jack McCarthy and Billy Maloney for
Jimmy Shockard. Sheckard is still
with the Cubs, while the other four
have passed out of the big leagues,
some of them being even out of the
game now. Chicago also gave Bob
Wicker for Overall. The latter is one
of the Cubs' mainstays in the box,
while Wicker has been in the minors
for several years.
Another deal that worked to the
rdvantaeo of the Cubs was that where
by Mordecai Brown became a member
of the Cutis along with Catcher O'Neil
in exchange for Pitcher Jack Taylor.
O'Neil and Pitcher Pfeiffer were soon
exchanged for Catcher Mornn. Did
Murphy and -Ch.-inee get the better of
those deals? Well, very much so.
Brown has been one of the greatest
ritohers the game has known since
Joining the Cubs, while Moran. who
was recently sold to Philadelphia, lias
been an able assistant to Kling and
Archer. As for the others, they are
now minor leaguers or have quit the
prime. Then the Chicago men put an
other over on Cincinnati when they
acquired Steinfeldt for Pircher Wel
mor. who was recently released out
right by -"-- Vo'-v.
AVhere nonton I. out.
A couple of years ago New YorK re
leased a big bunch of players to Bos
ton in exchange for Tenney and Erid
well. Tenney is now playing in the
minor leagues, but Bridwell Is still in
his prime, while the players let out to
Boston are down and outers.
A year ago the big clubs that won
the big league pennants found it nec
essary to make some trades in order
to strengthen several weak points.
Pittsburg traded Barbeau and Storke
for Byrne. The latter was just the
man needed at the third corner, but
St. Louis lias nothing to show for the
deal, Storke dying, while Barbeau has
been sent to Kansas City.
Detroit pulled off two transactions
that sheved that David Harum did
not have a whole lot on Hughey Jen
nings. First he 6ent Schaefer and
Killifcr to Washington for Delehanty.
The latter has put up a splendid game
at second ever since and was the
champion batter of the world's series.
Schaefer and Killifer, however, have
failed to distinguish themselves at
Washington. Then Jennings gave
Rossman for Tom Jones. Jones is one
of Detroit's mainstays today, while
Rossman is a minor leaguer.
A year ago Cleveland gave Ryan
and Chech to Boston for Cy Young,
there heinir also a cash consideration.
Young has not been of service thi3
season, but he outpitched Chech and
Ryan last season, both the younger
men finding their way to the American
Yes, even up swaps are few and far
STEINFELDT MAY GO.
Veteran Third Sacker Likely to Give
Way to Boucher.
The Chicago fans construe Frank
Chance's attempt to get Third Base
man Boucher of the St. Faul (Ameri
can association) club as another signal
of distress. Should the deal be made
it will probably mean the passing of
nnrry Isteinfeldt, the Cubs' veteran
third sacker. Boticher is considered
one of the best third basemen in the
association. lie formerly played with
the Little Rock (Southern association)
club under Jack O'Connor, now man
ager of the Browns.
President Murphy has secured an op
tion on Boucher's services, holding
good until Aug. 20, and be may wear
a Cub uniform after that date.
Did You Ever Hear the Fans Cheer
Him For Hl Work?
There Is one unique phase connected
with the life of the umpire which per
haps has never occurred to most lov
ers of baseball. You have often been
to a theater and seen the hero or hero
ine yes. even the villain win round
after round of applause for some ex
cellent bit of acting.
You have been to a football game
and beard some ball gladiator cheered
to the echo for making a long run that
resulted in a touchdown or for a fly
ing tackle that prevented imminent
defeat. When some player Is injured
they convey their sympathy to him by
cheering his name.
You have been to a ball game and
heard the fans cheer some crack
pitcher because In a pinch he fanned
some mighty batter. It's Just the nat
ural way of the American to show ad
miration and appreciation.
Rack your brain, think your hard
est, recall every game you have ever
attended, then see if you can remem
ber a time when the umpire drew ap
plause for his work. Have you ever
heard the fans cheer the name of the
umpire after he has worked a fifteen
Inning game which fairly bristled with
close and unusual plays and got away
without a kick? If you can recall such
an incident, just dot it down in your
notebook that you were present at a
very, very unusual happening.
Do they cheer the umpire's name
when he stops a foul tip with his shin
or has a swift shoot bounced off his
mask? Yes. they do not. Any Injury
to the umpire usually gets a round of
derisive laughter from the crowd.
Generally, if he has been going bad.
some leather hinged individual re
quests that he be killed or chloroform
ed. Of course there are many people
In the stands who sympathize with the
umpire. Their sympathy is usually
silence. That isn't much balm to his
injury or feelings.
Applause would sound so strange to
nn umpire's ears that he would proba
bly become so thoroughly frightened
he would Jump the back fence. Billy
