What was probably the slowest
and most unique 10-inning contest
ever played at Island City park was
won by Carney's men yesterday af
ternoon by a count of 5 to 4, Dan
ville being the loser. It took two
hours and 20 minutes to play the
game and there were features that
were comical in the extreme. Al
though past 6 o'clock when the final
run was made, a small percentage uf
the crowd had left the park, the

in an appearance, and after waiting
a reasonable length of time. Mana-,
pers Carney and McCarthy agreed to
let Pitchers Dellar and Benz offic
iate, the two to alternate as rlate I
and base umpires. Both players did
their best, and both got into trou
b with their mates and with thej
other side as well. Dellar quit cold '
after the seventh inning and Lakaff
took his place. Benz stuck through j
the to innings and it fell to his lot,
to pronounce Vogel safe at the plate
with the run that beat Danville.
HOW RI'NS KRK MIK
Lakaff started on the firing line
for the Islanders Hit he was hit ,
hard and had to 'lie relieved in the j
seventh, as Jacobsen batted for him
in the sixth. In the second inning
the visitors poled three three-hag- ;
gers and a single and scored three j
rims. All three of the triples were;
in right field. In the fourth a pair'
of hits scored another run for the j
visitors. Whiteside, pitching after .
the sixth inning, had a little better
success than did Lakaff. and only .
, . . . . .
two hits were made off him in four!
rounds. After the fourth the Mc- j
rartheyites did not score, their best '
effort being In the sixth when three i
nen were on the circuit when Lakaff j
fanned Ball and ended the round. I

dandy endeavor to win, but his line

the visiting center fielder. With the
score tied the game dragged along
unil the 10th inning. Custer and
Whiteside were easy outs. Vogel,
however hit one over second base
and Carney followed with a bingle
that was too far back for Ball. Vogel
made top speed around the circuit and
tallied with the winning run.

The officials of the Rock Island
baseball club let a contract this
morning to A. E. Mclnnis for the
erection of an addition to the grand
stand to replace the portion of the
bleachers which was burned. The
new stand will be to the west of the
present grandstand and will be simi

length and will occupy much of the
space that is now used by carriages
and automobiles. It is designed to
seat about one thousand people,
which means that the park will again
have a seating" capacity of 3,500,
making it . one of the best In the
league in, this respect as well as the
best as far as the playing field itself

The contract specifies that the

it will be ready by next Sunday, as
on that date there will be a double
