ALLIANCE AGAINST RUSS
URGED ON TWO NATIONS
Stockholm. July 6. The campaign
for an alliance between Norway and
Sweden continues, without a dissent
ing note. Prominent politicians of all
parties are advocating such a course
on the public platforms and in the
newsDarers. The movement, how
ever, lacks official action.
Tne irreconcilable differences which
led to the disruption of the union
between Ihe two countries in 1905 and
almost caused war, seem to have
been smoothed out, to the extent, at
least, that both peoples desire to
unite in a defensive alliance against
possible Russian aggression.
The increase in the army and navy
of Sweden, instead of exciting the con
cern Of Norway, is greeted there with
the utmost satisfaction, it is saT3, and
Norway itself has a strong movement
under way for an increase in arma
ments. Sven Hedin, Swedish explorer, and
Siguid Isben have exchanged visits
between Stockholm and Christianla,
and each has found public sentiment
agreeable to the proposed alliance.

that the two foreign offices and the
general staffs should have ome for

tle, and William Demetral of Greece,
are both in the pink of condition for
their big wrestling bout at Exposition
park Friday night, when the heavy
weight championship of the world will
be decided. In' every sense of the
word this match will be a world's
championship affair, for since the re
tirement of Frank Gotch from active
ring work both Roller and Demetral
have claimed the title, -and each has
met and defeated the best men in the
profession to substantiate their claim.
Present indications are that the park
will accommodate a record breaking
crowd Friday night and Promoters
Dan Flynn and Otto Seidlitz plan to
erect a huge platform directly in front

There will be room for a number of

WINDY CITY FANS DREAM
OF THREE 1914 PENNANTS
Chicago, III., July 7. Chicago's base
ball fans are reveling in the delights
of the national game to such extent
that much pennant talk has been
heard in the last few days. The en
thusiasm even was so great that many
saw the possibility of three pennants
for this city this year. The reason for
such expansive ideas was the fact the
White Sox had won 14 out of their last
16 games, the Cubs had won 14 out of
17, and the Chifeds had won 8 of their
Should all the major league teams
continue at the same relative paces of
the last three weeks from now until
the close of the season, Chicago would
have the distintlve honor of taking
three pennants, and the Sox and Cuba
would battle right here for the cham
pionship of the world, and the Chifeds
could challenge the winner, with the
hope of being recognized.

OF ASSYRIAN RULERS
Berlin, July 7. Great enthusiasm
prevails in archaeological circles over
the success attained by the excavators
of the German Orient society, who
have been working in the region of
Assur in.Baylonia for a year.
The most important results include
the discovery of five well-preserved
tombs of Assyrian kings and a very
ancient temple in Astarte, which is
said to be over 6,000 years old.
The temple contains a number of
pictures and other works that are des
tined to amend very considerably the
prevailing conception of the ancient
history of the near east
The temple reveals all the familiar
indications of the oldest Symerian civ
ilization, altnough it is not yet certain
whether it was the Symerians who in
3,000 B. C. worshiped their gods in the
sanctuary just -unearthed.
The finding of five royal Assyrian
sarcophagi is hardly le.es interesting.
Archaeologists had always bemoaned
the fact tnat such tombs had hitherto
remained undiscovered. Those found
by the Germans are in the southern
wing of the palace at Assur.
Although the mausoleums were man
ifestly Injured and robbed in the Par
thian period, the Germans have been
able fully to restore several tombs,
hewn out of gigantic monoliths.
The leader jot the German expedi
tion. Dr. Andrae, has identified thru?
of the sarcophagi positively, namely:
those of King Assur-Belkala. dated
about 1100 B. C; King Samsiadad V.,
the hustfand of Semlramis, dated about
820 B. C, and of tbe famous Assur
Nazlrpal III., dated about 860 B. C.
Five tons of human hair was recently

DON'T WANT CLUB
PLAYING IN CITY
Majority of Baseball Patrons
Oppose Allowing Ottumwa
Team to Come at AIL
A further canvass to ascertain the
sentiment of baseball supporter in
regard to taking over or permitting
the Ottumwa team of the Central as- "
sociation to come here for the re
mainder of the season, shows that the
majority are against evea permitting
the league to place the team here on
its own responsibility.
As one who has had considerable
baseball experience pointed out, the
club, if transferred here by the league,
would carry Rock Island' name and
the city's baseball reputation would
be bound to suffer. No tall-end club
coming here In the middle of the sea
son can be expected to draw well
enough to keep going. The home play
ers would be strangers and the visiting
clubs unknown to the public and un-'
der such circumstances there could
be no interest taken in a pennant race,
especially with the club representing
the city without a ghost of a show
to land anywhere.
No difficulty whatever is anticipated '
tn getting Rock Island into some
league at the close of the present sea
son and till then we will be content
to get along without professional base
ball. This is the way the averaga fan
feels about it
