'HOPE TO WIN POLO
f v ?i .- -' ' ' , .1 '
Duke of Penaranda, Clef
New York. June 5. "We are hope
ful of winning, but we do not anticipate
a victory. It will depend on the ponies.
England sent over the best team that
J was available."
In these words Lord Wimborne,
who has brought over the English
team challeneine for the internation-
al trophy. gave his views on the
chances of a victory in the coming
struggle for the blue ribbon event of
tbe polo field.
-la addition to the members of the
English team Lockett, Cheape, Bar
rett, Tomkinson and Traill Lord
Wimborne brought with him the
Duke of Penaranda.
Tbe Duke, a Spaniard, accompanied
the team to play in the practice games
before the matches and to act as an
adviser, lie is considered the best
player in Spain. In the early spring
practice gp-mes ia Madrid, King Al
fonso, the Duke of Aosta and the Duke
of Penaranda were on the four that
opposed the English team as origin
"We iratherod the best players
that cculd spare the time to make the
trip." ' continued his lordship. "We
have many excellent polo players in
England, but a great number cannot
give the time to practice for the games
and then make the Journey to the
United States. It would be a different
matter if the games were played in
England. There a team could be made
un entirely of our very best players
"I think the .team as it now stands
13 quite the equal of the 1913 four.

TROPHY,. BUT DONT
Q. and Lord: Wimborne.
Some of the members of the present
team did not make it until nearly
the last minute. One or two were
doubtful regarding the trip, because
they did not believe they could ob
tain leave of absence from the army
or from business affairs.
"The men are not very heavy," it
was suggested. "Do you think they
are strong enough 'to cope success
fully in tl:e scrimmages for the ball:
with the American players?"
"A light team is better on a fast
Held.'' replied Lord Wimborne. "A
heavy team has a greater advantage
on deep turf. I think the team last
year was too heavy. For that reason
we selected lighter men this year."
"How will the men line up?" he
was asked. .
"We have not selected the team
yet, but the four will be made up of
the five men Tomkinson, Cheape,
Barrlt, Traill and Lockett. That is
the team. I cannot say who will be
Thin English team, when compared
with the teams that came here In
1911-1913, seem very frail and too
light by many pounds to withstand
repeated onslaughts from the Amer
ican players. Oa the basis that La
Montague, Captain Waterbury, D.
Milburn and L. Waterbury will make
up the American team, the cup defend
ers will Iiavo a big advantage in
weight. The light weight of the
Englishmen, however, will be ia their
4 favor in the races for the ball, as the
English ponies will not be as heavily
handicapped as the American ponies.

STORM IN THREE-

Boyle Fined $50 and Keeps
Danville Team No Ac
tion on Charges.
Apparently the storm in the Three-
Eye league has blown over and noth
ing Is to be done about the charges of
President Jimmy Boyle of Danville
that some of the clubs, notably Dav
enport and Decatur, are away over the
salary limit. Boyle's protest Is Joined
in by the weaker clubs, while Presi
dent Tearney plainly takes the side of
the accused teams, though promising
an Investigation. Tearney announces
a fine of $50 for Danville for refusing
to play at Springfield Wednesday.
Davenport and Decatur are offering
a double-barreled defense. They deny
that they are over the salary limit, and
further assert that there isn't any sal
ary limit, anyhow. The Three-Eye is
a class B league and they say if an ap
peal is taken to the national board
that body will rule that any team in
the circuit has a right to run salaries
up to $3,500 a month and to carry as
man yas 16 men. There is no agree
ment, they say, as to keeping the sal
aries down and at the same time they
deny that they are carrying expensive
"What are you going to do about
it?" Is the attitude they take and if It
is left to Tearney it is quite evident
nothing will be done.

Blanding was served with7 a subpoenaj

LAKE A RETREAT;
FOR WILD DUCKS
Conservationists Plan to Make
Use of the Big Pool Above
Keokuk Dam. .
Keokuk, Ia., June 6. Since the con
servation movement has reached the
wild duel in his native haunts, this
city promises to add a few millions
of ducks to Its show features. The
idea is to make the lake above the
Keokuk dam specially attractive to the
The water-power Installed here In
the Mississippi river conserves many
million tons of coal every year; eon-
serves the fruit crop along the shores
of its like; conserves navigation to
the extent of over 60 miles of deep
water navigation and millions of dol
lars to the war department;' is con
serving-many square miles of low land
always overflowed during high water
stages and now the society attending
to the conservation of game birds : is
planning to utilize it for the special
good of the wild ducks. if
Congress has already made it un
lawful to shoot ducks on tbe upper
Mississippi river at any time. Game
wardens enforce the law strictly. Hunt
ers who formerly dined on mallards
row watch Immense flocks of ducks
fly over the water of the Mississippi
while the double barreled shotgun
gathers dust in the attlo. !
Prominent members of the society
which accomplished all this have pass
ed along the shores of the lake above
the Keokuk dam. It is a lake of, a
hundred square miles area. The duck
conservationists quickly saw its capa- -
bilitie8 as a summer resort tor wild
ducks. For one. thing it would save
the ducks a Journey of several hundred
miles to their present feeding grounds
In Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Tbe plan now under way is to sow
wild rice and other duck food in all
the shallow waters along the shores
of the lake in the Mississippi here. The
lake shore generally shelves off quick
ly into deep water, but there are sev
eral thousand scattered acres avail
able for duck pastures. If the United
States, or the states of Iowa and Illi
nois, will sow this acreage to wild rice,
it is believed that the lake will be
fairly alive with wild ducks during the
springs and summers. Local hunters
object to the plan. They do not want
to be tantalized by a million wild
ducks In sight from a bluff with, the
shotgun in the attio. - r.
The United States government has
given a good deal of attention to util
izing the lake created above the big
Keokuk dam. Some millions of young
bass have been placed there under es
pecially favorable conditions. Recent
official reports say Illinois is already
the second state in the union In the
value of its fishing Industry, and It' la
believed that the lake created by the
Keokuk dam will greatly Increase its
output of fish. Iowa also will benefit
In this respect." : :?
Tbe lake which covers with many
feet of water the formerly impassible
Des Moines rapids in the Mississippi
has its surface kept nearly at a con
stant height, lessening flood variations
and making easy the construction Of
terminal docks for its cities which for
merly was almost impossible. '
