( The Islanders copped yesterday's
feame from Dad Keenan's Bloomer boya
by a score of 4 to 2 despite the fact
Hhat the visitors hit the ball the harder
mnd more consistently. The Islanders,
Jnowever, made their eight hits count
j by gathering them together for the
Sircft part in two innings, only two of
.'the eight hits that were poled, failing
to count in the run getting. A unique
record was set by Pitcher Humes who
6tarted the slab work for the visitors.
He pitched to two men and then went
to the stable, as it was seen that it
-would simply be murder to let him re
iniain on the mound. Callahan, first
men up, smashed out a double and
Davidson followed with a nice single
and both men did it so easily that Kee
uan decided Humes was not delivering
anything that looked puzzling and
Pitcher Davidson was trotted out to fill
the breech. Our Paul's namesake got
away with it very nicely until the
eighth when the champs got busy and
made enough runs to sew up the con
test. ' Ttto In the Flrt.
Callahan's double to the back fence
proved a good starter for the Islanders
and when Humes made a bum heave to
the plate in pitching to Davidson, Cal
went to third. Then came Paul's sin
gle into left and the first Islander tally
v.-p.s chalked up. Humes was then sent
to the bench. Manusch followed with
.a sacrifice hit off Davidson that sent
our man of that name to second and
OXeary's hit to left brought the sec
ond run of the inning over the pan. Af
ter that there was nothing doing for
the Islanders until the eighth when
it was felt that at least one more tally
ought to be chalked up. In the fifth
Lakaff allowed three hits and one run.
Frank was not in the same excellent
form that he showed the day before,
but he was steady all the time and
working hard. The hitters in this
round were Ielchoir. Erwin and Stat
in and a3 they came in a row, one run
v as counted before three men could be
Land on Davidson.
In the eighth inning, the Islanders
received a premonition that the visit
orb were going to make a run in their
next session so in order to make things
cure, two men were chased over the
plate. Manusch sit safely and O'Leary
followed suit, whereupon Slattery
dunvped one down in front cf the plate
and moved both men up a notch. Sny
der, who by the way has been instru
mental in winning a bunch of games
Eince he joined his new teammates,
tapped one out to center field and both
the base runners scored.
In the ninth Roudebush drew a
thiee-sacker into right field and scored
on Erwln's drive to center after one
rear had been put down and out. The
m-xt two batters, however, were fruit
for Lakaff and the side was retired and
the game was won. The score:

The ginger boys from Speaker Can
non's town have given Manager Tighe's
men all they could handle in the last
two series and some close contests are
looked for in the next two days.
Lakaff played a mighty nice fielding
game himself. In the eishth inning,
the first two men drove the ball at him
about as fast as a bullet travels but he
kvocked both of the wallops down and
got his man.
Otllahan pulled off his usual sensa
tional play yesterday. It came in the
second inning. Roudebush skied into
center fieM and it looked as though the
sphere was sure to drop where no one
could catch it. The speedy fielder in
center reached it however while going
on a dead run and gathered it in and

RADIATED FROM THE DIAMOND
Pitcher Ed Walsh of the White Sox,
who is doing about all the work for
that aggregation these days, held Bos
ton runlesa and fanned 15 men yester
day coming within one of the world's
record for the big leagues established
by Rube Waddell. The Sox made but
tL.-ee hits, one of them by Meloan.
Dougherty hit a three-bagger and scor
ed on Billy Purtell's long sacrifice, and
that is the way the only run of the
day was made.
Pa Schaffer, late manager of the
Davenport team, while not physically
able to remain in the harness in Dav
erport, is in a deal to purchase an in
terest in the Binghampton, N. Y., team
in the New York State league, the sup
position being that he intends to take
personal charge if he secures the team.
The franchise has already been sold
t.vice this year and the club is at the
bottom of the heap. Schaffer was given
a complimentary dinner and a purse of
$100 by Davenporters.
Johnny Wanner, with Memphis,
and Pete Lister, with Chattanooga,
filth inning might have proved a fatal
rcund indeed had it not been for the
ex-Bloomer, who is now an Islander.
Three hits were made off Lakaff in a
row but thanks to Hoinie's great stop
and quick delivery of the third, not a
man scored while the one who had
reached third came within an ace of
being caught off. Not satisfied with
preventing scores, Snyder delivered
the hit that won the game. There were
two on and two down in the eighth
vben Heinie came to bat. His hit to
center scored both of the base runners

TO BE REGRETTED
Attendance at Island City Park
is Not What the Associa
CLUB OWNERS FAITHFUL
Have Given the dry First Class Base
ball for 10 Years at a Finan
rial Loss Many Seasons.
Rock Island led the league last year
in attendance and while this year's
showing is far in advance of that In
many of the other cities in the cir
cuit and there is no question but that
tfce required aggregate will be reached,
yet it is a source of regret that the
lovers of baseball in Hock Island are
not taking the interest in the game
that they should. There are several
things that the fan who has been lax
in attendance should take into consid
eration. In the first place there is
the home association which has kept
baseball in Rock Island continuously
for 10 years. In the entire Three-Eye
league there are only three of the cities
which originally made up the circuit.
Rock Island, Bloomington and Daven
port, and the latter dropped out for
two years on account of poor attend
ance. Rock Island's steadfastness is
pretty good evidence of pluck on the
part of the home association as well as
loyalty on the part of the baseball
Monty Han Brn I, out.
Further than this, the men who have
kept baseball here for 10 years, have
lost money nearly every season. They
will lose money thi3 year, and lots of
it, but they will be in the running when
the season is over and ready to take up
their burden again when another sea
son rolls around. They deserve all
the support that can be given them.
Despite the fact that the team isn't
at present a serious contender for the
pennant, though the same can be said
of several other teams as Springfield has
held on tenaciously to the lead gained
in the early part of the year, it must
be considered that at the opening of
the season there were few who imag
ined that the depleted pennant win
ners of last year's aggregation -would
land out of the second di
vision. Nevertheless, Tighe's team
has been in the first division
practically all of the year and most of
te time, as it is today, it has been
fighting for second place, always with
a chance or winning out in tne end.
Dees not that also make the team and
the association worthy of the best of
Have a Good Tram.
The pennant should not be the only
thing contended for, for if It were,
there would he 6even very much dis
appointed cities to one that was satis
fied and baseball would cease to be
the great national game. A good,
steady, hard fighting team with the
same kind of baseball is what is wanted,
and that is what Rock Island has. Th
asr ociation is presenting it at a loss of
nicney. The season is nearly over. At
the beginning of another season it is
probable that a new league will be
formed and in all likelihood the com
pany in which Rock Island will find it
self will be determined by the attend
ance showing made by the patrons this
year. The people are not prepared for
a cheaper and lower class of baseball
tbsn the Three-Eye league has been
presenting for the last 10 years and it
is up to them to indicate by their at
tendance by their support and loyalty
to the Rock Island baseball association
wb'ch has been in the league from
start to finish, and won two pennants,
their determination that Rock Island
shall continue In the league which has
always presented first class ball.
Wake up ye fans and go to all the
rest of the gemes here this year.
