MEW LIFE IX THE GAME.
It can be snen from expressions
such as these that there is new life
and Interest In tbe national
pastime In Rock Island. From one
of tbe best towns in tbe circuit to
one of the poorest. Rock Island's in
terest dwindled last season. The
spirit evidenced thus far Is to the ef
fect that Rock Island will attain be
a leader In the league. Everybody
is satisfied thus far, and after the
franchise Is secured, all that will be
necessary will be to provide a mana
ger who will be popular with public
and players alike, and then its Rock
Island for its old top notch seat in
attendance and an exalted position
in the percentage column.
WESTERN COLLEGE GIRL CHALLENGED BY
BARONESS. ACHIEVES FAME OVER NIGHT
a week ago there weren't very many people who had ever heard of
Miss Sybil Marston. Today she Is famous.
Wben Haronesa A. DeMeyer. visiting in New Tork. announced that
she was British fencing champion, and challenged any American wom
an to a bout. Miss Marston promptly accepted. She Is a California girl,
a Iceland Stanford University student, and few outside of her own cir
cle ef friends knew of her prowess with the flls.
The bout was to have been held at the Colony Club. New Tork. but
at the last moment the bareness backed out, claiming the little Ameri
can airl was a srofessional. and not an amateur.

Weakened by the absence of Neus-
s 111 and with Captain Behnamann
handicapped by an injury received in
recent practice game, the high
school basketball five went down in
defeat before the alumni quintet last
evening at the school gymnasium by
the score of 49 to 32. Though defeat
ed, the high school team made a
creditable showing against the grads,
and but for a little lack of confidence
at the start would probably have
given the alumni a good scare.
FIRST HALF A RUNAWAY.
In the first half the alumni com
pletely swamped the high school boys
and at the close of the period lead
24 to 6. The school team seemed
powerless before the attack of the
graduates, who threw baskets at will
and held the high school team to two
field goals and two foul throws. But
the high school was not discouraged
and with a changed lineup came back
strong, and in the second half out
played their opponents. Captain
Behnamann, who had played forward
in the first half, took center, while
Tremann was shifted .to guard.
Brough was taken out and Hughes
took Behnamann'8 forward. Hughes
played brilliantly in this period and
registered six field baskets, while
Behnamann got three and as many
foul throws. Chalk at guard played
a splendid game and with a little
more experience will develop into a

The high school second team was
defeated in the curtain raiser last
evening by the Western Catholic
Tnion, the final score being 24 to 19.
The game was close and hard fought,
but when all was over the Catholic
team had the big end of the score.
Hughes played center for the seconds
and was easily the star of the game.
He registered nearly all of the high
school's points. Will Whistler, at
guard, also played a good game and
got tow field baskets. The high
school lineup was as follows:

said George Nicholson, the Greek de
mon, yesterday, in talking of the ap
proaching match,. "And if I put

Davenport, who has challenged the
winner, will be my next victim. The
Brondell-Nicholson match, if there is
another, will be staged in Rock Is
land. I am training hard now and
will be in the finest kind of condi
tion when Collins travels down here
from Chicago to wrestle me. This
dope predicting defeat for me can
be thrown into the discard right
now, for I am going to win."
Promoters of the first big wres
tling program to be given in Rock
Island have completed arrangements
for the Nicholson-Collins match. In
addition to that feature event, KM
Fisher, another Windy city wrestler
of ability, is to wrestle with Harry
Brondell. This match promises to
be nearly as good as the main go of
the evening's entertainment. Then
Young Beel of Rock Island, wres
tling partner of the Greek demon,
will appear in his first public match,
his opponent to be Billy Von Dahlen,
another Davenport wrestler. Possi
bly another go will be scheduled for
the wlndup. As in the main go, the
match between Beel end Von Dahlen
will be best two out of three. "Cy
clone" Tommy Thompson is looked
upon as tbe referee. Ringside seats
will be arranged and those who de
sire can be right close at hand to
witness the matches.
SOI M OS GOOD TO HIM.
Nicholson used to live in East Mo
line and most of his matches have
been staged In Moline. He is a
stranger in Rock Island and that ac
counts for a little conversation that
iook place in nis saining parlor a
few days ago. A Davenport wres
tling fan dropped in for a shine. He
said to the man who waited upon
him, "When does this Nicholson
match with Collins come off?" "Jan.
25." came the prompt reply. "Be
lieve me, I will be on hand for It,"
he said, "for that Greek demon is
a whirlwind and I guess be will be
my favorite. I saw him perform last
year In Moline and I will go to any
match where he Is the main attrac
t'on." He was unaware of the fact
that he was talking to the demon.
: His words rather boosted Nicholson's
spirit and now he Is more than ever
determined to win he match.
One of the local pin artists will roll

bowling again after a long rest and
both he and Thorns are expected to
give Collier a hard race for honors.
Monday evening A. Wr. Salzmann and
William Hnston, probably the two
best bowlers of the Commercial Bowl
ing league, will meet Collier under
the same conditions.
TOO COLD FOR BOWLERS.
Counter attractions and cold
weather proved too much for the
bowlers of the Commercial and Semi-
Pro leagues last night, and therefore
the meeting called for the inaugura
tion of a Rock Island Bowling asso
ciation came to naught. A few bowl
ers assembled at tbe Harms hotel
parlors, but because they were not a.
majority, business was postponed un
til the latter part of next week when
another meeting will be arranged,
The organization of a Rock Island
Bowling association means much for
the future of bowling, for this organi
zation will rule with an iron hand the
decision of all protests and disputes
which may arise in either league now
and any league that may be formed
in the future.
It is up to the individual bowler
now to see that his team is repre
sented at this first meeting. A good
plan would be for each team to name
a delegate or two to the first meeting
and authorize them to perfect the or
ganization. Each delegate might be
instructed as to who is preferred for
office and in that way a representa
tive vote would be polled in each in

We will sell you one $500 bond, or one $1000

These bonds are pledges of the public and private

not from freezing, but from weak

HARMON HITS TARIFF IN i
EAST ST. LOUIS SPEECH
East St. Louis, 111., Jan. 13. '0 for
an hour of Andrew Jackson " This
expression, figuratively a wish for the
resurrection of the tariff and economy
policies of President Jackson, sum
marized the views of Governor Jud-
son Harmon of Ohio in a speech last
night before the Democratic club.
The occasion was a celebration of the
100th anniversary of the battle of
New Orleans in the war of 1812.
"Jackson urged a gradual reduction
of tariff taxes," said the governor,
"especially on necessaries, at a time
when they were levied mainly for
revenue. When recently we saw a
president led, against his just inclina
tion, to sign and praise a tariff bill
which broke his own word and his
party's promise of reform, men every
where exclaimed, as they did in the
days of the vacillating Buchanan, 'O!
for one hour of Andrew Jackson!'"
The governor attacked the financial
policy of the three last republican ad
ministrations as having increased the
federal outlay from 1, 000,000,000 ev
ery two years to more than $1,000,-
000,000 each year. He devoted most
attention, however, to what he de
scribed as "one of the worst abuses
known in history" arranging tariff
taxes so as to enable favored manu
facturers to collect from the public a
much larger sum than $1,000,000,000
for their own benefit "According to
reliable estimates," he said, "for ev
ery dollar the government receives on
articles Imported, the favored manu
facturer collects $3 above the normal
of prices of like articles from Ameri
can consumers. This is in effect
farming out the taxing power. It is
significant that the Sherman anti
trust law and the McKinley tariff law
were under consideration at the
same time and passed at the same
session. The first step surely must
be to redeem the tariff from its per
verted use and restore it to its proper
place as a revenue measure by grad
ual reductions so that all concerned
may have time to prepare for the
change. With the chief cause of the
trouble thu3 removed, I believe we
shall make our way safely back to
