Usual Tomorrow to Visit
BOOSTERS WORKING HARD
Canvass for Subscriptions Meets With
Success- Determine at Meet
If hard work and determination
on. the part of the friend of the
game in Rock Island will count for
anything the local baseball franchise
will not be lost. Just what the stock
holders will do tonight when they
meet to finally determine the matter
is not known. At all events there is
every reason to believe now that the
team will be sent out tomorrow on
its first trip to Quincy. Business men
In a formal petition will ask the as
sociation to do that much, at least.
In other word, to defer final action
till the end of the week. This would
bring the schedule -up to the time
when Uavenport visits Rock Island.
It is sincerely hoped that the team
will not only make the coming trip,
but some way will be devised tonight
to finish the season.
Ever since Saturday morning A. D.
Sperry and E. T. Dolly have been busy
circulating subscription lists . among
business men. and they have met with
liberal responses. There are also
other papers of the same sort being
circulated in different parts of the city.
M. C. Rice, speaking of the situation
last night, said: "While I am not a
baseball fan, seldom go to a game, and
know very little about it. yet I realize
what it means to a city, not only in the Brooklyn
matter or clean sport, dui as an every
day advertisement of the town. As
The Argus said Saturday night, there
has not been a day during the baseball
season for the past 10 years in which
the name 'Rock Island has not ap
peared on tbe sporting pag6 of the j Boston
Chicago papers, and everybody knows I Chicago
season were to bring a doable price,
and the schedule was made with this
end in view. The rnle did not apply
solely to Rock Island, bnt everywhere.
In the Central association, a lower
class than the Three-Eye, it proved
satisfactory and worked admirably
HOT FAVORED HERS.
It was not, however, received with
favor, in Rock Island, at least. The
two games of yesterday were not
scheduled, the extra one having been
put on for a single admission, in view
of the postponement of Friday's game.
The directors of the club felt that
they could take that option in ordr
to see just how the fans stood on tbe
subject. Yet in some of the leading
baseball centers In the city it was de
clared that the association had made a
great mistake, that If it were really in
financial stress, it should have
charged double fare for the Sunday
bill, and the attendance would seem
to indicate that the association might
have done this and gotten twice as

From various cities in the league

keep Rock Island in the circuit, they
realising that this city is the real

Is expressed on any side of the crisis
here than comes from Davenport. From
our long time rivals come words of j
sincere regret that there is a possibil
ity of Rock Island dropping out of the
league. Across the river they do not
hesitate to express their admiration of
Rock Island as one of the gamest cities
that is in baseball.
The officers of the local association
stated today that they would be glad
to turn the affairs of the club over to
anyone who would assume the liabili
ties of the association.

The directors this morning made ar
rangements to pay the players the sal

of Saturday and yesterday was rather

what it lacked in numbers, as tre

A significant phase of yesterday'"
attendance, however, was presented
In the fact that, while the admission

any more on hand than there wou'.d

by walking two and hitting one in the

scored two. In the next a run was
scored without a hit being made and
Carney retired Whitey and sent in
Humes. The game was a tie from the
third to the seventh, but in that round
the visitors got to Humes, and three
runs resulted from four hits. After
that it was a hopeless contest. The

WON BY ISLANDERS
BY SCORE OF 6 TO 5
The Islanders copped an Interesting
game Saturday from Dubuque by a
score of 6 to 5. Timely hitting coupled
with two errors by the visitors did tne
business. Manager Rowland's men
easily tauthlt the winners, but the bin-
gles were kept pretty well scattered
and some nice pitching and fielding in
the pinches held down the scores.
Pitcher Phil Dellar worked In the boil
ing heat foresight inning and was go
ing nicely, though weakening a little
towards the close. In the ninth inning
with the heed of the Dubuque batting
list up and the score 6 to 5 in favor
of Rock Island Lakaff was trotted out
to do the rescue act and he did so in
fine style, retiring the first three men
to face him without any of them hin
ting the ball out of the diamond. The
first run was made by the Islanders in
the second inning when Kelly lived
and reached second on Paddock's bad
throw to first, Snyder sacrificed hira
to third and he scored on Custer's
grounder to R Darringer. In the fifth,
Dellar hit for two sacks, Vogel live
on Plass' error. Hunter hit scoring
Dellar, and two more scored when
Beatty threw wild to third after field
ing Clynes' bunt. Jack went to sec
ond on the play, reached third on Stev
ens' bunt and Slatfery drove him
home with a hit to right field In the
seventh the run tha: won the gime
was made by Steven3, who beat out a
grounder to Beatty and completed the
circuit on Slattery's twosacker into
left field. The visitors made thel;
runs , by hitting at opportune times
but the bingles couid not be bunched
enough to score the needed number ot j
runs. The score:

in the Dubuque series that are on the
right side of the percentage column.
Both Managers Carney and Rowland
were reinstated Saturday afternoon

Tearney had acted too hastily in sus
Jacobsens pegging arm was not
working right yesterday. He threw 'a
center field twice in trying to stop
men at second and both men reached
third and scored afterwards.
Umpire Guthrie failed to put In an

work and were very satisfactory.
