in eight of the events, the old record
being tied in one, and there were but

The Islanders returned to their own
stamping grounds today, and they will
be seen at Island City park each day
during the coming week. A double
header will be played next Sunday, af
ter which the team will take a jaunt
to Dubuque. Commencing today, the
week day games at Island City park
will begin at 3:45 and the Sunday
games, except when double-headers
are to be played, will start at 3. To
morrow is ladies' day, and it is hoped
that the fair fannettes will take advan-

Manager Carney stated that only a
bad streak of luck had prevented the
Islanders from making a good showing
while in the south. He said that the

showed that they were fighters by

siderable extent, and was accountable

if the pitchers begin displaying their
real class, the Islanders ought to begin
a climb towards the top.

Johnson says he placed Second Base

Unsatisfactory results and poor at
tendance are given as the reasons for
the resignation of Dave Rowan, 33
manager of the Peoria team. Rowan
submitted his withdrawal as leader
of the club at a meeting of
the directors Saturday evening
and it was accepted. Appar

of yelling for help and It would not bo
surprising to see the franchise trans
ferred to Decatur before long.
Peoria's predicament again demon
strates the necessity for newspaper
support to keep baseball alive in a
town in leagues of Three-Eye class.
Peoria newspapers, or some of them,
adhere to the old fogey notion of car
rying the petty personal fights of its
writers into print, a practice that has
been out of date 'generally for a num
ber of years, newspaper men as a rule
realizing that it makes little differ
ence to the reading public what their
individual opinions of their contempo
raries may be.
At Peoria if one newspaper waxes

club the rival sheetiromptly begins
to find fault. One of the newspapers
camped on Frank IKnneIy's trail till
he was unahle to do effective work as
manager. Now another paprr hiis
brought about Rowan's downfall, by
casting slurs at him and openly dis
couraging attendance at games.
