In addition to pitching eiearty ball
while being hit hard, Humes won his
way into the hearts of the fans by
driving in four runs villi two well
placed safeties. His first swat was a
double into left field and the next was
a single into right and two men scored
on each. In the hitting end of the
game he set the pace for his new team
mates and they followed him nobly.

get a man over the pari. Dick h- i-i the
Islanders to one scratch hit in that

great trouble. The sixth saw the do-1

with a three-sack drle over Stevens'

ing ana wromwien s uomer were easi-
There were three real features the
hitting of Humes, the home run of
Bromwich, and the brilliant catch by
Harry Kelly gave another exhibition
of big league stuff yesterday. Besides
getting a dandy double when it was
needed, he played a great fielding
game, engineering two double plays
and doing some other nice work in ad
dition. It was just like rubbing it In for
Manager Carney to put Humes in
against Davenport and have him hand
our defeat to the team which traded
to get his hands on it. He dropped it.
but it bounded right up into his mitts
and he turned and threw into the dia
mond just as though he fyad caught it.
The umps was fooled and Joe was
0 1 HIenie Snyder stole third on
o'O'Leary in the sixth inning, the
theft being in a most approved style
similar to the method used by Clynes
the day before. Heinie played well
off second and drew a throw in that
direction. While the ball was on its
way to the middle station Heinie was
beating it for third, and he arrived
there by a safe margin.
Umpire Guthrie, by the way, looks
pretty good as an arbitrator. He is not
looking for trouble all the time and at
the same time he looks like a man who
would not shirk for fear of bodily in
jury. When finally convinced after
the game that Crangle had missed Slat
tery's foul in the eighth inning, he said:
"Well, that guy sure slipped one over
on me that time. I thought sure he
grabbed the thing.

TO ROCK ISLAND BASEBALL FANS
Do you appreciate the fact that Rock Island is the only town that has weathered
all the trials and tribulations of the Three-Eye league through the 10 years of its ex
istence, and is today the sole survivor of those making up the circuit in the first place
that has stuck steadfast through thick and thin?
Do you realize that this speak3 volumes for the patriotism, loyalty and true
sports-manship of the fans of this city?
Do you realize that it is a high testimonial to the persistent, self-sacrificing ef
forts of those who have promoted the national game here the stockholders and offi
cers of the Rock Island Baseball association?
Do you realize that it has cost a great deal of money to maintain baseball here and
that those who have backed the team have usually done so at a financial loss to them
selves? Do you stop to recall that Rock Island has invariably had a good team and has
given it full moral support?
Have you reflected that this year starts under peculiar conditions as a result of
the delays and turmoil of the long drawn out controversy, and that the outlook for a
profitable season is not as bright as usual?
Do you know that the Rock Island association opened this year with no money in
the treasury, that it has just suffered a loss by fire, and that to hold up through the
season it must have the constant and steady support of the fans?
Do you realize that upon you individual fans rests the responsibility of assisting
the local association through, thereby maintaining the reputation of Rock Island as a
baseball town and keeping the standard of baseball up to that of former years?
Knowing and understanding these things do not forget that it is the plain duty of
every enthusiast and admirer of the game to make up his mind to be present not at
some of the games, but at every contest that he can arrange to witness during the sea
son. Start right and there will be no necessity to sound a rallying cry later in the season.

VERDICT AGAINST JOHNSON
Head of American league Stung
f l.OOO Worth In 61ander Huit.
New York, May 13. After being out
for a little more than an hour the jury
in the case of John M. Ward against
Ban Johnson for $50,000 for slander
returned with a verdict of $1,000 for
"That was all I was after." said
the old baseball player. "If Johnson
had retracted what he said I should
not have sued him. I have already
said I did not want Johnson's money.
What I wanted was to clear my name
as a toan and a lawyer, and I think
the verdict has done that. I bad more
evidence that Johnson had made these
statements and tha he had traduced
me, but I didn't want to call certain
friends of mine into the caee since- I
had already more than suillcient evi
dence against Johnson and was sur
of the verdict."
At a meeting of the stockholders of
the Rock Island Baseball association
held last evening at the New
Harper, it was decided to S6k
the public for aid in rebuilding the
bleachers destroyed by fire Thursday
A committee consisting of M. H. Sex
ton, H. E. Casteel, H. H. Cleaveland.
F. O. Van Galder, W. H Reck and O.
L. Brnner will start a canvass for funds
Monday morning. The business men of
the city will be visited, and any others
wishing to assist the club in Its hour
of need will receive the hearty thanks
of the club. It is estimated that it will
require about $1,500 to rebuild, and as
the Insurance is wholly inadequate
and the club is without funds, the
subscription scheme is a necessity.
Bl'IEn FOR THE Ft'TVHB.
It was pointed out by one of the di
rectors that it might be possible to get
along this year without rebuilding the
destroyed stands, but the sentiment
was almost unanimous that they ought
to be replaced at once, and to be ot a
quality that would make them perma
nent and a credit to the best park in
the league. The park still has a seat
ing capacity of 2,500. but this will not
be adequate for the double header Me
morial day. Bhould the schedule cull
for games in this city at that time.
The result is that there will have to be
some quick work done by the directors
before that date. The public will also
have to be quick in its financial re
sponse. The stockholders, to be frank are
considerably discouraged as the loss
has come at a time when the associ
ation treasury Is at low water mark
and it is hoped the citizens will re
spond as in the past and give the as
sociation the help it needs and de
serves. GETTING FIGURES.
A committee from the board of di
rectors met this morning with several
contractors, and plans for the new
stands were talked over so that imme
diate estimates could be obtained of the
cost of the rebuilding. It has not been
finally decided whether to rebuild the
old bleachers or add to the present
grand stand. The latter course would
probably be the wiser, for the grand
6tand has proven inadequate time and
time again, while the bleachers re
maining will still seat over a thousand.
