So. after having been given an op
portunity in an open, fair hearing at
Chicago Monday, and after having
waived the right to appear, Quincy
now desires the commission to make i
itself ridiculous in the eyes of the!,aul cluo or ne American associa
baseball and business world, by re-
versing itself at a subsequent closed
session and after a rehearing on but
one side of the case.
CITY WA REPREKTEl),
Quincy cannot plead lack of repre
sentation before the commission Mon
day, because President Tearney and
R. F. Klnsella entered an appearance
there for all the plaint ffs in the case.
If Qulncy's case had any merit it
was up to them to show it then or to
hold their peace. The action they
have now taken is an admission on
their part that they did not know their
business and made a failure in the
presentation of their case. This ought
to have deterred them, if they bad had
any self respect, from going on with
The claim that it is Mr. Hofer's
fault that tho annpal wast tnkpn will ;

pressly stated that he would do noth

KSOW WHAT THEY HAVF.
As a matter of fact the northern
clubs know junt what promises Quin-!!'ith

which to base either an appeal for a
new hearing before the commission,
or a suit in the civil courts. Any let-

Quincy has no valid grounds, either,
upon which to claim protection as a
regularly organized baseball club, and
the members of the national commis
sion admitted as much Monday. Neith
er the national board nor the national
commission protects individual cities,
recognizing nothing less than a four-
club circuit. When Quincy bought its !
way out of the Central It voluntarily
waived all claim to protection in
SAME rDEB-COVEK TACTICS.
Not only did Tearney and Klnsella
have nothing upon which to base a
case before the national commission
Monday, but they were out-maneuvered
by M. H. Sexton of this city, who
appeared for the north, and shown
up from every angle. Now they are
rady Monday to pay Quincy half of
the money it turned over to the Cen

LOCAL ALLEY STARS
IN STATE TOURNEY
Salzmann, Liitt, Easton, Roantree
and Wicii Brothers Entered in
With Rock Island bowlers In mid
season form, it is posle that they
will carry off a few of t honors to
the state tournament to be held In Chl-
i cago beginning April 23. The local
team has been selected from the bowl
ers of the Commercial league and dur
ing the season they have bad the best
averages in that organization. Arthur
Salzmann. Charles Roantree, Oscar
Liitt. Will Huston, Ed A. Wlch and J.
H. Wich will make np the team from
this city which will compete for state
honors. Salzmann and J. H. Wich, O.
Liitt and Ed Wich, and Huston and
Roantree will pair for the doubles.
Salzmann and the Wichs have made
scores this season which have been
over the COO mark, and if they do as
well in Chicago they will surely carry
off some of the money. Salzmann at
present Is confined to his home by ill
ness, but It is thought that he will be
about in a few days. He holds all rec
ords in tournament bowling and on the
alleys of the city for high scores.
Billy Neal won his first game for

with the Islanders last year, has been
sold by Pittsburg to Los Angeles. Pit

outfielder, who was recently declar

place in the league.

were at Danville. The Sox were to
have played at Springfield yesterday
and the Cubs at Danville.
Manager Robert E. Kennedy has re
ported at Bloomington and taken
charge of the baseball situation. Man
ager Kennedy has always been with a
w inning team. He won the pennant
for Enid in the Western association in
1908 and 1909. and would have won It
last season but for the loss of his best
players by draft. Even with a bunch
of bushers he came in but a few
points behind the winner, landing
Enid in second place. He talks mod-

hour at the July 4th races of the Mis

guaranteed speed of one of the boats
will be 50 actual miles.. If this boat

i is a specially designed Fauber hydro-
plane, with six planes. It will be
J equipped with three six-cylinder en

' total of between 300 and 400 horte-

i pellers of monell steel and the build
ers guarantee 50 miles an hour.
! T expect to have it completed by
! April 20th. or by May 1 at the out-)

guaranteed speed is 50 miles an hour,
i but it is. a little early to say just what j

want to make any false claims. We 1
cannot tell just what she will do un

It is considered probable that Com-j

remarkable boat built in 1911. Its
first public appearance will be at thai

Kennedy has the reputation of being a
strict disciplinarian and no late hours.
Phil Nadeau, the Davenport out
fielder of last season, has been given
his release by the management. It Is
the policy of the club to build up a
team of youngsters this season, and it
was thought Nadeau could be replaced
with a faster and younger man. Na

Death Seals Mystery of Attack on
Glass Man at Streator.
Streator. 111., April 6. John C. Ev
ans, superintendent of the two local
plants of the American Bottle company,
died early yesterday in a hospital as
the result of injuries received 10 days
ago when he is said to have been way
laid and beaten by two men. If Mr.
Evans made an ante-mortem statement
shedding further light on the myster
ious attack the coroner's jury which
met yesterday has been unable to get
information of it. The attack is said
to have been made on the night of
March 25, but it was not until the af
ternoon of the following day that the
injured man was taken in an automo
bile to a physician. He is said to have
stated early last week that he knew
neither of the men who attacked him.
Mr. Evans was widely known in the
glass trade. His mother, Mrs. Mary
Evans, and two brothers, Herbert and
Thomas, live in Chicago.

turer of Indianapolis. This boat is
costing $22,000 complete, and it will
make its first public appearance at Du

the Pugh marvel. Those two boats;
should without doubt form the great

August ana Faculty Petitions
for $2,500 Addition to State
TO PUBLISH MILAN SHEET
Would Be of Great Benefit In Ii
s traction of Pupils in Schools
The members of the faculty of Au
gustana college have signed a peti
tion, which will be presented to the
Illinois state legislature at an early
date, asking that an additional $2,500
be included In the state geological
survey appropriation in order to cover
the publishing of the Milan sheet
Field work on this survey has been
carried on for the past two years and
as no report of the work done or of
the results obtained has been publish
ed, it is particularly desirable that
the sheet should be completed and
printed as soon as possible. Two
more years will be necessary to com
plete this work.
The survey proposes to prepare a
topograhphic map at each of the five
normal schools of the state. The fu
ture teachers of the five normal
school of the state will then have an
opportunity of studying the geological
conditions of the state.
INCU DES TWO CITIES.
The Milan survey extends from the
Mississippi river south about' twenty
miles, thus including the cities of
Rock Island and Moline. A map of
the territory. It is considered, would
be a great benefit and aid in the- instruction-
of the students of the local
high schools and also of the high
schools of the immediate vicinity in

MR. HUGHES' STATEMENT.
D. L. Hughes, manager of the Grand,
on being interviewed in regard to the
warrant issued on account of his hav
ing sold tickets of admission to his
theatre in excess of the seating capac
ity, stated that on account of the I
class of attractions he had been able j
to bring to this city and present to
the public, the number of applications
for seats in a great many cases, has
been such as to fill the house to Its
capacity, and oftentimes late arrivals
from Rock Island and Moline were
loath to return to their homes after
making the trip. The rule as to sell
ing tickets in excess of the actual seat
ing capacity, while in the ordinances,
for a long time, has never been strict
ly enforced in the case of these spe
cial engagements, and the only solu
tion of rhe problem i3 that two-night
stands will have to be played by these
companies hereafter in order to satis
fy the demands of the tri-cities. The
Grand has a seating capacity of less
than 1,200, and hereafter its patrons
must take into consideration that no
tickets will be sold in excess of the
seating capacity of "the house, and
they must either secure their tickets
early and be assured of seats, or must
not complain if they come late and
find that they cannot be accommodated.
Mr. Hughes says that he will now en
deavor to book attractions for two
night engagements in Davenport.
PLANS FOR "BEN-HUR."
A 60-foot baggage car containing
advance properties, racing parapher
nalia and a staff of carpenters, and
electricians connected with the "Ben
Hur" company will arrive in Rock
Island Saturday and the work of al
tering the stage of the Illinois the
atre will commence as soon as the
material is unloaded. The advance
representative of the company, Da
vis Towle, arrived in the city last
evening and immediately began mak
ing arrangements for the prelim
inary work in connection with the
installation of the special stage prop
erties which will arrive Saturday.
The play has been advertised in ev
ery town and hamlet surrounding
Rock Island for 50 miles. Mr. Towle
said yesterday that the merchants of
Rock Island should take advantage
of the opportunity to realize from
the great influx of visitors from sur
rounding towns and in this connec
tion he suggested that they put on
special sales for those days. Mr.
Towle will endeavor to get in touch
with the heads of the larger com
mercial houses with a view to get
ting them interested In the great
spectacular play, by showing what it
means to the merchants of the 'city.
He will confer with the railroad of
ficials and if possible procure cheap
rates from the surrounding towns to
Rock Island during the "Ben Hur"
