The Rock Island Indepndents and

the trl-clty championship. Contrary
to expectations, and despite the fact
that the game is a return contest. It
will be played in Moline, where the
other one occurred. The first meet
In between the two teams was in Mo
line, and the Illlni were to hare come
to Rock Island for the second, but all
efforts to pet them to do so have fail
ed, and rather than miss meeting the
Molinera again. Manager Joe Smith of
the Independents finally consented to
play in Moline.
By winning Sunday, the Illini cou'd
claim equality with the Independents, 4

plonship would be necessary. Inas

give the Independents a real game, be

to the management of the Hpring Val

a game here. Spring Valley lam Sun

In the early rounds Welsh had slight

Vaudeville lovers are getting their
fill in variety the first half of this
week at tbe Majestic. "The Hallow

features the bill. The act is a har
vest of mirth and melody and Is being
well received. Princess Bonita,
"America's greatest educated horse,"
is also getting her share of the hon

managed and controlled by H. S.

owner of Mascot, The equine spells,

act is pleasing, educational and in

their pedal extremities in a classy
fashion and put on a good eccentric
dancing sketch. Corbin, the monolog
ist, gets off some good stuff that
brings laughs. Two reels of moving

New York, Nov. 12. Wholl suc

York American league fans. President,
Farrell of the club, whose Job it will
be to settle the question, is sphinx
like in his silence.
The rumor that Harry Davis, late
manager of the Cleveland Naps, haE
been picked for the Job apparently has
some foundation. At least It sounds
reasonable and likely. Davis had a
chance to manage the New York club
last year. Owing to hi3 connection
with the Cleveland club at the time
he could not consider the proposition.
In fact, Davis had an offer from
New York two years ago, before he
agreed to manage the Naps. At that
time, however, the Highlanders
looked hopeless while the Naps gave
promise of eventually ranking as a
