LOST TWO MORE GAMES.
The Twin-City Teani Defeated at

lers a tjiood Game at
The home team dropped another game
to Peoria on Saturday, the score standing
18 to IS ia favor of Peoria at the end ot
the aixth inning, when the game was
called on account of rain. While the J
work of both teams is sa'd to hare
been very ragged at times, the
grounds are undoubtedly not the best,
and to the latter fact is said to be due
more than to anything else the town ball
scores that have been made there. Um
pire Rauschkolb seems to have lost his
grip with Peoria people if he ever had
any as Charley Bareton, who has since
been signed for the TwinCity team, um
p:red Saturday's game. The boys went
to Terre Haute Saturday evening and
opened the first gams of the series there
yesterday. The mercury in the thermom
eter of hope, which had dropped into the
bulb during the past few days began to
rise again last night when the score was
received from Terre Haute. A bright
beaming smile now ornaments the counte
nince of President Charles Cridilao Albert
Hodges as he assures the less hopeful
ones that things will come ear way before
long. The score of yesterday's game
stood 6 to 3 in favor of the Hoosiers,
which looks as though the Twin-Citys
have at last struck a gait and are getting
down to business.

Peoria club pitcher, and with Comiskey's
Chicago Players' team the first year of tbe

City team, and will be an element of
strength to the club.
There seems to be some doubt as to
whether tbe I-I league will, like the na
tional league, play all postponed game
on the following day. The rule would
cot be a practical one for minor leagues.

President Olsson.of Augustana college.
has a note in yesterday morning's Union
in reference to The Argus' criticism of
the methods of the present chief of the
Kock Island fire department in handling
the fire at the college building Thursday
aiternoon, in which Mr. Olsson says:
"The authorities at Aueustana college
have no criticism to make on the conduct
of the firemen at the fire here on Thurs
day afternoon, but on the contrary we
all feel sincerely grat ful to them for
their prompt response and for the quick
ana energetic manner in wbioh they put
out the fire and saved the college build
ing." The statement thus made contains
no contradiction of The A kg us observa
tions concerning the work of the deoart
ment and certainly ro one has moie lust
reason to feel proud of tha prompt and
tmcient work a paid department is capa
ble of rendering than TnE Argus,
which struggled so long in be
half of such a system. The
A rgcs merely said that the chief, even
with the advanlages the city had given
h'm in a paid servi.e, did not handle tte
fire as he should, and ibat view is still
held. TnE Argus knew what a paid de
partment meant from the moment it firt
advocatid it, and the present chief did not
in this Instanrc at least, meet the expec
tations of a chkf who knows Lis business.
