The afterpiece started out like a
walkaway, but such was not to be
the case. Rowland elected Southpaw
Delano to stop, the Pretzels In this
section and sent Siebert behind the
bat to rest up "Meddy" Boucher. The
elongated port side flinger was given
a warm reception right away. Becker,
point and straw hats remained in i first up, waited for a pass and was
vogue, there was a 99 per cent Christ
mas atmosphere at the Davenport base
ball orchard yesterday afternoon. Re
membering the old saying which pur
ports that It is more blessed to give
than to receive, the Blue Sox handed
the first game of a double decker to
Rowland's pennant chasing chesties,
by a 3-2 count. In the ultimate sec
tion, however, they "ditched" the mis
tletoe effect and helped themselves to
a regular victory, 4 to 3.
The travel stained athletes should
have copped both factions of the
Labor day program, but some woozy
work "gummed" the cards in the open
er. Spicer, the new shortstop, un
corked an uncertain heave in the gen
eral direction of the plate in the fifth
inning, which got away from Peters
and allowed two opposition representa
tives to thunder over the pan. Then

sacrificed to second. Bromwich drove
the apple to the center field fence
for two cushions, and the California
gardener trotted home. Holke drew
a w alk. Flaharty was demised, Isaacs
to Beatty, but Otto Koepping distin
guished himself by leaning against the
old pellet and hammering it clear to
the club house for three cushions,
cleaning the bases. Only fast work on
the part of Redskin Jude, averted a
homer. O'Leary grounded out.
The Dubs counted two in the fourth.
R. Darringer singled. His brother,
Howard, bunted to Barnes, who heaved
wild to second, allowing the runner
to go on to third. Swanson flew out.
Siebert walked, filling the bases. Erle
wein drove a liner into center, and
the Darringer brothers both counted.
The last visiting run came in the
fifth, on Jude's single, a wild pitch
and two infield outs.
The Pretzels were unable to break
the ice until the eighth, when the
winning marker was gleaned. Flahar
ty walked, grabbed third on Koep-
ping's single, on the hit and run play, j
Brute strength, coupled with a grit
ty determination, carried Eddie Clab-
by through ten rounds with Billy Wal
ters at Hammond, Ind., yesterday. The
former naval station battler showed
such improved boxing ability that his
work not only outclassed his rugged
opponeLt, but was a surprise to the
large crowd of ring followers gathered
in the arena. Clabby never had a
chance, and from the first round to
the last bell it was only a question of
whether jt not the Hammond boy
would stick the limit.
Walters-showed a clean left jab and
a wicked right cross, using this com
bination one-two with telling effect
always. Clabby saved himself pun
ishment by bulling around the ring,
keeping his head under Walters'
"bean" and by roughing it in close.
Although there was no knockdown in
the mill Clabby was staggered on two
occasions, both times when Walters
planted a left hook squarely on the
point of the jaw.
For an interesting bout the affair
proved more than advertised. Not
once during the ten sessions did the
men go into a clinch and only twice
did the referee caution one or other
of the men lor holding. It was a
nip and tuck battle from the start,
with Waiters straightening up Clabby
with body blows and then turning
loose lefts and rights.
Walters had a clear margin in sev
en out of the ten rounds, the second
and fifth being even and the tenth
going to Walters by a very slight

and counted on O'Leary's long fly to
shove a little reverse English into the
gear box, and start to climb.
Dan O'Leary says the general senti
ment around, the circuit is strong for
the return of Rock Island to the
Three-I in 1914, and according to his
dope, there seems to be no doubt but
what the deal w ill go through. It
is a practical certainty that Spring
field is out of it and Decatur as well.
Dubuque is way below the attendance
mark and always has been that is,
as far as the oldest inhabitant can
remember. Danville is also below the
attendance mark. Peoria wants to
break into the Federal league and
there will certainly be a general shake-

New York, Sept 1. Jolly John
Bunny, the fat and famous moving
picture comedian, whose smiling face
is known to millions who have never
seen him in real life, has been chosen
by the business men of Coney Island
to be king of the coming MardI Gras,
which will last throughout the week
beginning Sept. 8.
Immediately after his appointment,
King Joha named Miss Lillian Walk
er, 'also a moving picture player of
renown, as his queen consort. Then
he issued the following edict:
"In honor of the arrival of His Most
Gracious Majesty King John, ruler of
the Isle of Mirth, duly elected to his
high office, and la appreciation of the
true and unswerving allegiance so sig
nally manifested by his loving subjects
of Coney Island, a street pageant is
ordered to be held for one week.
"And now, enjoining strict obedience
on the part of all his submissive and
beloved subjects. His Majesty's un
swerving determination is announced
that his brief reign shall leave only
smiles and pleasant memories behind.
"And so, in the fullness of a royal
trust and confidence, the Interest of
His Most Gracious Majesty's realm and
the honor and glory of his house are
intrusted to their loyal keeping.
King John and Queen Lillian will be
crowned Monday night, Sept. 8. A
great throne is being built and set up
in the center cf Luna, and President
James A. Nelson of the Mardi Gras
promises there will be no lack of mua'cj
light and color at the coronation.'
After the ceremonies the first par
ade will take place. Then the entire
executive committee of the Coney Is
land Mardi Gras association, accom
panied by the grand marshal and his
aides, will escort the .king and queen

usual "Buck" Weaver was the big
fender with a pair of blunders in tha
first game and one in the second.
Berger gave him a run with one boot
in the battle, while Lord and Chap-
pell divided the others. Linked with
these errors was the fact that the

St Louis, Sept. 2. Jimmle Archer's
oversealousness cost his Trojan ship
mates a two-ply victory here yester
day. The act that spared the tail-ender
Cardinals a double trimming was pre
sented in the seventh inning of the
second game. Archer's fumble of
Schulte's perfect peg home, allowing
Whitted to score the tying run. An
inning later the contest was called
by Umpire RIgler on account of dark
ness, the score standing 2 to 2. Tha
opening battle resulted in a Cub vic
tory. 2 to 1, with Larry Cheney, tha
master of Slim Sallee, thanks to Schul
te's two-bagger in the third round.
All angles pointed to a clean-up for
the West Slders until the lucky sev
enth arrived in the final combat. As
the result of the unexpected finish
George Pierce has nothing to show
for a splendid pitching performance;
moreover, the Cubs will be forced to
remain here over Wednesday in order
to play off the deadlocked battle. This
will prevent the Trojans from filling
their "Saier day" engagement at Lan
sing, Mich, Wednesday.
