Rock Island is to have league hall
this summer after all. The Knights
of Columbus have invited Allouez;
our.cil No. f.58 to pla e a team in the
field in a circuit composed of the fol
lowing cities: Galesburg. Monmouth,!
Kewanee and Burlington. At a meet- (
ing of the council, held last night, the I
locals decided to accept the in vita- i
tion, and a committee composed of ;
William Toal. Charles Roantree, :
James Reidy, Roy Barnett, John Roach
and Dan Brennan will convene Friday ',
evening for the purpose of discussing ;
a scneduie, ordering uniforms, and j
electing a captain and manager. !
The four cities mentioned above are
all lined up and a representation from j
Monmouth was to have appeared be-j
frre the council last evening, but the !
visitors failed to put in an appearance.
A letter from Monmouth promoters
was read, however, and the detailed
an angements contemplated for the
new league were set forth. The plan
now in to have a flve-club leugue. pliy
ing Sunday and holiday ball. This
will enable one team to obtain se-t
repose each Sabbath. This arrange
ment is not nc4sarily permanent
There is considerable talk of making
the circuit a six-club affair and invit
ing Mollne to enter. Should this be
the case, the local interest wouM le
much keener, a.s the long rivalry erift
ing between the twin cities would be
sure to swell the gate receipts. The
primary purpose of the organization.
however, is to provide real
cot to make a fortune.

The racing season of 1913 promises
to be a banner year for the lovers ol
horse racing in and around Rock Is
land. The track has been newly
graded and leveled, and on the hack
stretch, where it was formerly sand,
the latter has betn removed and re
placed with black dirt, making the
track several seconds speedier than
before. Carpentere have, been at work
for the past several weeks repairing
the stalls and grand stand, and every
thing is taking on the appearance of
an up-to-date race course.
As Rock Island has one of the best
half-mile tracks In the state, it is very
prolable that should the officials stop
the running races at the Porter track
at Mineral Spr' :a, Ind., the horses
will be shipped to Rock Island and
races run here, and the parl-mutual
betting machines used.
In all, there are about 30 horsps now
quartered at the track, and more are
to be expected at any time. The C. &

have not yet come to Rock Island.
