THE ROCK ISXTAXD ARGUS, FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1911.
TAKE 3 IN A ROW

Pitches Heady, Steady
STING STIS STILL SHAME
Peoria Manager Peeved, bat Afraid
to Say So for Fear of Umps
Danville at Rock Island.
Peoria at Dubuque.
Waterloo at Quincy.
Davenport at Decatur.
Pitcher Harry Hughe' steady work
tn the mound, aided by Manager Gond
ing' s superior catching and head
work was largely responsible for the
third straight victory over the Peoria
Distillers on the home lot yesterday
afternoon by a 4 to 2 score. For the
first four Innings, the youngster held
the visitors helpless, nary a hit having
teen copped off his offering of Bboo:s
and twisters. Then in the fifth came
two hits and a single score. In the
eeventh there was another hit and in
the ninth two more were knocked out,
tnaking a quintet of pokes for the vi3
4 tors, and a measly pair of runs.
Then, too, the timely raps by the lo
cal ilayers helped considerably, for
three of the Islander runs were dis
tinctly earned runs and no fluke about
any of them. They started with the
Jirst ball that Schmirler attempted to
put over the plate when Wooley w&e
at bat in the first inning. That aat
ter knocked the ball down the right
field line and before any one could
reach it he was perched safely on the
second sack. Davidson pushed h!m
along to third and he scored on Catch
' er McDonald's error. That was th?
only unearned run for the locals, tte
others having been knocked in hy
healthy hits of the ba's of Snyder ani
Kelly who each speared triples.

It was a good game, in Fjiite of the
pair of errors for botli sides. Stis, .bu
scrappy, grouchy Distiller leader,
pulled off a couple of spectacular grabs
fif drives that looked like safe hits aui
really merited the applause which t'ne
fans accorded him. Kelly for the Is
landers pulled off a couple of bad
plays but he more than evened nja'
ters with hi second hit which scored
two runs. The plays of the game and

NOTES OF THE GAME
Danville is here again tomorrow.
Wooley continues to hit and field like
Kelly's two good bingles more than
offset the misplays in the field.
Slattery had his usual error, but
then he had his usual hit, too, remem
ber. All three games of the series were
hard fought and full of interest. Ther
were the sort of games that a real fau
is sorry to miss.
"Haw-haw," Gonding's pet phrase,
proved a terrifier to Schmirler, for that
dignified hurler walked the manager
when he haw-hawed.
The game was another heart pal
pitator and might have been either
team's victory till the eighth when
the Islanders scored a pair.
We have to give it to Stis for his
fielding. He pulled down a liner that
was good for a hit and then made a
run way out Into the field for a popup.
Myers was back in the game yester
day. He was on the bench the day
before simply because he hit the ball
when he was ordered to bunt. In addi
tion to being benched the third sacker
had a fine of $15 hung on him.
Fountain hit a ball over Kelly in the
sixth that was good for a hit, but
UmpB Daly called him back. He did
so because the batsman stepped out of
the box when he hit the ball. Foun
tain was so peeved that he whiffed on
the next ball.
JacobB Just to let the fans know
that Peoria has a Bcrappy bunch
argued and argued in the sixth till
Umps Daly sent him off the field. Stis
was mighty glum all through the con
test, but it is safe to say that he bit
his tongue to keep it quiet.
The attendance is increasing day by
day, and soon it will look like olden
times. The team is playing top-notch
ball and yesterday marked only the
close of the first half of the season
We are climbing in number if not in
place, but expect to get there anyhow.
There was a little comedy for the
fans when McDonald insisted on play
ing without a mask and then again
when Schmirler heaved one over the
pan while Daly was doffing his mask
and protector preparatory to going out
onto the diamond to umpire. Daly
could not misjudge the ball, though,
for Hughes, the batter, took a healthy
swing at it.
Agreement Made by Baseball
Magnates Wednesday Cuts
Teams to 13 Each.
LOCALS HAVE 15 MEN
This Includes Bob Coutluiian Indi
cations Are That Pitching Staff
Will Be Trimmed.
In pursuance with action taken at
the meeting of the Three-Eye league
magnates in Chicago a few days ago,
the management of the Islander team
is planning to cut down the number of
players, so as to come within the limit
of 13, which was set when the lid was
taken off of the salary limit. There
was an iron-clad agreement among the
bosses to cut down the number of play
ers by Sunday, July 16, and if the cluba
do not take action by that time games
after that date till such action is taken
will be forfeited.
I F TO GODI!SG.
The directors of the local club have
left the matter in the hands of Man
ager Gonding, but as yet he has an
nounced no releases. At the present
time there are 14 players on the Isl
ander staff, and it is a question which
one will will be cut loose. The num
ber includes five pitchers, Lakaff,
Queisser, Woods, Dellar and Hughes,
and as big Bob Couchman is on his
way here from the coast, another will
have to be cut loose. Of course,
Hughes is not the property of the Isl
anders, having been loaned to the local
club by Waterloo. However, he is on
the Islander pay roll just the same, and
is included in the count. He is going
at a good clip now, and has a reputa
tion for heady work, and is willing a !
all times to perform. As Gonding is a !
player manager, and not a bench man
ager, he is included in the list of play
ers. OTHERS WORSE OFT.
Most of the other clubs are in worse
predicament than the local club, and
will have to cut loose two or three
players, and with only 13 players, some
of the clubs will have a monthly nay
roll far in excess of what was allowed
by the old salary limit. Tomorrow
night will prcbably show which of the
local staff is to go.

still being watched by the big league
scouts. During' the last trip down
state the big first sacker was watched
by a scout of the St. IyOuU Browns,
who was working under direction of
Manager Wallace of that team. Tne
scout is in Rock Island and will take
a peep at Slat's work here. Dave Rowan,
the ex-Three Eye leaguer who was
with the Browns early in the season,
tipped the manager off as to Slattery's
abilities. Joe is a St. Louis lad and in
all probability would hot be adverse
to playing in his home city. It is
