THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1911.
WOULD BE DANDY
Tri-Citj High Schools Furnish
Material for a Powerful
FEW POSITIONS DISPUTED
Hugh r and MacManus of Rock la"
land Ar Two of Best Men Who
Ever Flayed Here,
Could tbe tri-clty coaches get to
gether and have for material the
quadi of the three high schools of
the tri-clties, a better team could
hardly be secured. Tbe men who
won their letters in their respective
schools this year have displayed bril
liant form. Following annual cus
tom, and to relieve tbe tension
among tbe players, fans are picking
all-star teams from among tbe tri
clty players. It Is not an easy mat
ter in some instancees to pick the
best man for the position. In other
positions, men have so outshone
their opponents In every game that
they are entitled to the honor accord
ed through a position on the all-star
ALL STAR LINEl P.
After due consideration of the
merits of the two score of players
who have won their letters this year
an all-star team has been selected.
If tbe team could be made a reality
It would undoubtedly tear a bole in
any other hlph school team In the
country. Here It is.
Hughes, Hock Inland, center.
Kempthorne, Davenport, right
Soderstrom, Moline, left guard.
Trx-mann, Rock Island, right
Salzmann, Rock Island, left
Melln, Moline. right end. I
Sexton, Rock Island, left end.
Kittilsen, Rock Island, quarter
Crosky, Davenport, right half
back. MacManus, Rock Island, left half
back. Sets, Davenport, fullback.
HtTGHES BEST l,im.W.
Hughes, undoubtedly. Is the star
of the tri-clty linemen. He has out
played every man that he has been
pitted against this year. On de
fense, he Is a terror In the hearts of
the opposing team. A surer tackier
can hardly be found. He, possibly,
broke up more plays during the year
than any other man. His position at
center Is undisputed.
Kempthorne has played a notice
ably good game during the season
and his work acainst Moline en
titles him to a guard position. Sod
erstrom played center against
Hughes In the Rock Island-Mollne
game, though he played guard in al
most every other game of the year.
His ability is not overestimated when
he Is given rndlspnted possession of
the other guard position.
Salzmann. through his off tackle
runs alone, is entitled to a position
on the team. His work on the line,
too, has been good. He generally
manages to pick a hole for his team
and clogs one up on defense. Tre
mann has played a steady game
through the year and generally, has
outplayed his man or kept him on
the run all the time.
ENDS HARD TO CHOOSE.
When it comes to picking a pair
of ends, the task is no easy one. In
the game with Molina, Sexton out
piayed the Moline ends and thereby
wins his place on the team. Melin,
Moline's captain, has done some
mighty good playing and his work
In Davenport kr the Pretzels from
running up a large score.
The quarterback position goes to
Kittilsen. He knows the game thor
oughly, can run with the ball, is a
sure tackier, is sure on receiving
punts, can punt and his toe has wen
games for Rock Island via the air
route. Injury sustained in the
game with Aledo handicapped him
somewhat, tut pt'.ll his play contin
ued In good style.
BCK A 1.1 STARS.
There will be little dispute In the
backfleld positions. Seis. there Is
no question, is the best fullback In
the trl-c!tles. His work has be?n
responsible for Davenport's success
in every game and it Is to him that
the victory over Moline Is attributed.
He Is a good all around player, Cros
ky, another Davenport man, is clso
a good all around man. He is a
youngster and has made good th's
year, outplaying older men through
out the season. MacManus holds
another undisputed position. His
work In the broken field outshines
that of any other halfback In the

TWO DEAD, THREE INJURED
IN WEDDING PARTY RACE
Boston. Dec. 2. While racing at CO
miles an hour after Mr. and Mrs
James R. Gormlcy, who a short time
before had been married in St. Jo
seph's chapel, Rozbury, a touring car
driven by John Gormley, agent for
the Loader Automobile company, over
turned in Walnut avenue, Roxbury,
yesterday afternoon. Two women were
killed, one is dying at the city hospi
tal, and two men were seriously in
juared. The names of the dead are:
MISS JULIA C. GALVIN of Porter
Road, Cambridge; stenographer In the
MISS MARY COFFEE, 50 years old.
427 Walnut avenue, Roxbury; a cousin
of the bridegroom.
The Injured are:

After the wedding the newly wedded
couple 6tole from the house, jumped
Into a waiting automobile and were on
their way to the station. The newly

says officers shall be elected annually)
of the Three-Eye Baseball league.
It is not intended to carry on a dis
cussion with the Chicago alderman, as
there would be little satisfaction in
d'scussing with a man from whom the
Associated Press will not take a state
ment unless put in writing or before
witnesses for reasons which can be
easily explained but it may be of in
terest to the league members to know
that he and I did not have any agree
ment whatever regarding the Waterloo
case and its disposition, as alleged by
him in the Star interview, as follows:
"Reed failed" to 6how one atom cf
sportsmanship in giving out the state
ment he did. especislly after hi and I
had agreed to abide In a fair and
square manner with any decision the
board might make."
B' WHAT AUTHORITY f
What authority had he to enter into
an agreement for the league, anyway?
Why would he rest his case with and
trust to the honesty of the board of
arbitration now, when he didn't abide
by it and trust to the board's fairness
last spring? Why, Tearney wouldn't j
have any more chance of . making an
agreement with me than he would
have of making one with St. Peter.
Tearney left San Antonio before
Waterloo took the matter up. Tearuey
and I never talked of the case, and he
did not know, positively, that Waterloo
was to ask for anything. He's the last
man in the world I would "tip my mit
to." In what little conversation we
had, he with his usual gusto, did all
tc one's rnind to feel that he is such a
sportsman that it is better for hl
r.eace and poise not to associate with
the members cf the board and to turn
over to Dick Klnsella the power to
represent the league in all matters
and to feel it more comfortable to trav
el to San Antonio alone, than to ride
with real baseball men on the special
His Intimation that I got advance in
formation from the board as to the de
cision in the Waterloo case is but an
other charge against the honor of the
board and in perfect keeping with
his declaration of a few months ago
that the board's decision was "framed."
No wonder he was discredited at San
Antonio! No wonder he left! No
wonder he did not have the nerve to
represent hi3 league! Vastly to the
credit of the ill-fated Three-Eye league
was Tearney at San Antonio! No won
der he feared he would be called be
fore that board when the Waterloo
case was called! -
SOME: POINTED QUESTIONS.
I would like to ask Tearney whether
or not he told me Dubuque would be
transferred, but that Rowland would
be given a chance for his money;
whether or not he said Bloomlngton
was getting in cheap after selling out
last year (quitters) and that the town
didn't have the right kind of sports to
maintain Three-Eye baseball ; whether
or not he said he was going to clean
i:p that league of the misfits and unde- j
slrables and had things in shape so
that he could whip any quitt's and
make them like it, as he had several
cities that would take franchises and
teams and get them for nothing? As
tc this, he "tips off something" in your
interview, when he says. "Eocatur
would have little difficulty in securing
a franchise if that city could show
where they could deliver the goods
any better than any other city in the
league." It may, beforehand, be con
jectured as to what his answers will
be but it doesn't matter.
CAST REMAIN IP IT DESIRES.
As to Waterloo, this city can remain
In the Three-Eye league if it wants to.
The national commission last spring
ruled that in the reorganization "every
city shall be taken care of." Judge
Gridley, in the civil court, ruled that a
club's property cannot be confiscated
by a process of reorganization, as that
would be only a means of doing indi
rectly what could not be done directly.
Contrary to Tearney, Waterloo did not
ask for reinstatement in the Three
Eye league, and this was the the ground
oil which the case was dismissed. Had
he the nerve to represent his league
before the men he maligned and ac
cused, maybe he would know more
about what transpired at San Antonio
The fact is, Waterloo doesn't wish to
take passage In the ship which can
culy be bound for the rocks (with such
a pilot!), but, provoked beyond endur
ance by the fabrications and misrepre
sentations of the Chicago alderman, it
may conclude to "stick" just to "make
him like it."

At a recent meeting of the Tri
Clty Schoolmasters' club, A. J. Bur
ton, principal of Rock Island high,
and A. G. Hill, member of the fac
ulty and manager of the football
team, held a brief conference with
Mr. Marshall, principal of Davenport
high school, regarding athletic re
lations between the schools of Rock
Island and Davenport. Football, of
course, brought up the question. The
local men broached the subject of
a resumption of relations and the
annual gridiron game. They told the
Davenport principal that the boys
who were in school at the time of
the trouble which arose in 1906 and
caused the severance of athletic re
lations, had gone from the schools
and that the matter had resolved It
self Into ancient history- For that
reason, they were in favor of resum
ing the annual game between the
WOULD STOP BETTING.
"As long as I am principal of Dav
enport high school," came the reply
of Mr. Marshall, "I shall refuse to
enter into any contract for another
game of football between Rock Is
land and Davenport. It la not be
cause of the intense rivalry that ex
isted at one time, that I take this
stand, but for another reason and
I think that you will agree with me
in it. Tou undoubtedly know that
whenever Rock Island and Daven
port or Rock Island and Moline were
scheduled for a game, the boys put
up every red cent that they own on
the outcome of the game, and often
borrow a little because they think
that they have a sure thing. It is
to do away with this betting business
that I take this stand. We have
been under contract with Moline for
nearly five years now, and as soon
as that lapses, I shall take steps to
cut out the Davenport-Moline game,
giving the same reason for that as
for my refusal to enter into rela
tions with Rock Island again."
NO CHANCE FOR CONTEST.
Regarding the unfounded rumor
that Rock Island was trying to se
cure a game with Davenport to set
tle the tri-clty championship, A. G.
Hill stated last night that it was an
Idle dream. Following the discussion
of the matter at the club a few weeks
ago, Rock Island has abandoned any
thought of entering into relations
with Davenport. The season here is
done for and attention will now be
devoted to other lines of sport, prin

San Francisco, Dec. 2. While
Packey McFarland proved in the ring
here Thursday that be is the cleverest
lightweight exponent of the fistic art
since Gans time, his showing was a
disappointment to those who wit
nessed the affray. At no, time did he
exhibit a punch that places him in
the championship class. His defense
was marvelous, and at infighting Mur
phy could not place a glove on Packey.
McFarland feels that some explana
tion is due the public and saya that
he injured bis hand in the 13th round
and was unable to use it after. Packey
also says he was not acclimated. He
says he felt dopey and ont of sorts
It Is sure that the Chlcagoan slowed
up toward the close of the battle and
J allowed Murphy the only chance he
had in the fight. Notwithstanding the
fact that McFarland, was a prohibi
tive iavorite In the betting, odds of
6 to 1 being oITered, there was
plenty of Murphy money in sight, and
many wagers were made at this figure.
Many of the fans doped out the career
of both and figured that Murphy would
get to McFarland in a long battle.
Lacking a punch was an inducement
for the long price players. Receipts
of the bout are estimated at close to
$8,000. McFarland's share, 35 per cent
of the gross, was something like $2,-
400. Murphy ! thought to have re
ceived 30 per cent, or 2,400. The
management took the remainder, $
800. McFarland left for San Jose after
the bout and plans on starting home

days and then go to New York, where
he is "billed to meet Matt Wells, the
