In a little hard, let the Davenport ag

with only two measly hits, one of
which was of the scratch variety.
Frank Lakaff, pitching for the locals,
had everything in his assortment, as
is shown by the fact that but three
men died on bases and there were no
runs. Two of those men crept on on
errors back of the hurler. On the
other hand, Yokohama Nelson, the
sidewheel flinger, was a snap and eight
tangles were made off him.
The game was fast all the way
through and finished when the clock
rounded the fifth quarter hour. In the.
first six innings only three men faced
Frank In each inning. In the seventh,
Koepping hit to center, but he expired
on first, while the following batsmen
followed the example of the leader
and popped out. In the ninth, the first
two men lived on errors, and It seem
ed that a rally was imminent. Sulli
van and Koepping, the pride of Pret
zel fandom, skied out, and then an
other favorite, Bromwich, whiffed the
air and ended the game.

NOTES OF THE GAME
Davenport finishes here tomorrow.
It was the fourth straight victory
for the Islanders.
Three left handed batters secured
hits off Nelson in the eighth.
The Pretzels expired-on 14 pop-ups
yesterday and thereby lived up to
Dave Ingalls located his batting eye
yesterday and clouted two singles in
Chapman's fielding robbed the Is
landers of more than a hit or two, but
the locals didn't need it.
Bromwich's hit was very scratchy. It
went to Ingalls, but he could not pick
it up in time to throw out the runner.
After an error by Ingalls gave Chap
man a life on the second, the Islanders
tore off a fast double play when he
tried to reach third on Obland's sac
rifice. ' Wooley had two hits yesterday and
four chances in the field. The trio In
the garden is as fast as any in the
Lakaff did not have to exert himself
very much to keep the Pretzels away
from the plate. Nary a one reached
the third station, and even that is
some distance from the plate.
Dear, old Daniel was chased off the
coaching lines in the fifth because he
was too noisy. The presence of the
two umpires looks good to the fans
and there was scarcely a murmur be
cause of their decisions.

New Howling Circuit Formed at
Meeting Held Last Night
at Harms Hotel.
TOM CARR0N PRESIDENT
Four Tea mCaptains Are Electee! and
Given Instructions to Draft
Plans for the organization of a
semi-professional bowling team were
furthered last evening at a meeting of
several bowling enthusiasts, held in
the Harms' hotel last evening. Offi
cers were elected as follows
President Thomas Carron.
Vice President Heinie Akeman.
Secretary Harman Clemann.
Treasurer William Steffen.
Leaders for four teams in the league
were chosen. They are Akeman, Car
ron, Jack Claissen and Skip Bleuer.
These bowlers have been named as a
committee to draft a schedule and sub
mit dt at the meeting which is called
for next Friday evening. The schedule
will start Thursday, Sept. 21 and the
league will bowl on the Ilarms and
Patting alleys every Thursday. Me
dals will be awarded to individuals and
teams for high scores. No players who
participated in the Commercial league
tournament last year are eligible.
PLAY FIRST GAMES.
After the business meeting last eve
ning, adjournment was taken to the
Patting alleys, where teams captained
by Akeman and Bleuer staged the
first game for the new players. Ake
man's squad, which comprises the
team which he has chosen for the
league, galloped away with the high
scores of the evening.
The Commercial Bowling league will
reenter the field this year in practical
ly the same lineup as was presented
last year. A meeting will probably be
held next week to arrange a schedule
and conduct other business necessary
before the opening of the season. Pro
bably a third league will be organized,
as the interest in the sport has aug
mented considerably and many candi
dates for teams are kept in idleness
because there is plenty of material.
Baseball Boiled Down

fielder Jones, purchased by Memphis
from the Boston Nationals, was re

wa against the White Sox and held
the Chicago team down to seven hits,
gcod for three runs. Ottumwa fail

Waterloo fans are holding meet

would be accepted. Joe is still ponder

Clifford "Peanuts" Schleberl, who
broke into boxing last winter by de
feating several fast amateurs in bouts
around about Peoria, may be one of
the contestants in the preliminary
preceding the Wolgast-McFarland
fight which is to be staged in Milwau
kee Oct. 15. At any rate, his broth

bring thi3 about and has asked Frank
Mulkern, promoter of the National
Athletic club of Milwaukee to try and
make such arrangements. "Peanuts"
is fast and will give any fighter at
112 pounds a hard battle for honors.
From . the present outlook some 300
fight fans from the tri-cities are con
templating a trip to Milwaukee to see
the fight. They are making arrange

the number be sufficient, this ar

Local Man Got Stronger ma the Play
Progressed and Won the Match
at the 32nd Hole.
Recovering the steadiness which
marked his play for the first 12 holes
of the 36-bole match for the cham
pionship of Rock Island Arsenal
Golf club, Ardo W. Mitchell in play
ing the second round yesterday after
noon had an easy time defeating his
opponent. Decker French, of Daven
port. The match was ended on the
32nd hole when Mitchell holed bis
ball on the second stroke and won
bis match, 6 up 4 to play. He fin
ished the second round with 6
strokes, while his morning score was
79. French. did not return a good
score on either round, his entire play
being rather erratic, which fact is
attributable to nervousness. Mitchell,
besides winning the title and the
championship cup, has thus far the
best claim on the low score medal
with a mark of 74.
