and the Meachers were fairly swarming
with a arging yelling black mass of
humanity. On account of the proces
sion being a little late, the game was not
called on time. A laree reDresentatinn
of ladies was present, and to all appear-,
ances the, attendance of the fair sex will
become a fad in the Twin-Cities as it has
this season all oyer the country.
It was almost 4 o'clock when Umpire

In its h Uf of the inning the home team

The local management should decide
what places are weak and fill them and
not be all summer making up its mind
Third Baseman George Nulton's wife
arrived from their home at Peoria this
morning and will remain here while the
team is at home.
It is understood that two of the local
players were on a toot Sunday night
Manager Sage should ascertain about this
and enforce the proper punishment.
There appears to be two prominent
points Of weakness in the home team: one
is the lack of proper discipline and coach
ins, and the other indisposition to hit the

Eighteen hundred people ia a good
turn out for the opening game. The

appreciation thus manifested and should
endeavor to merit it by giving good

is desired at all games, and on one par

It is not the results that make a good
game of ball though, of course, we al

active playing and an exhibition of the
athletic and scientific points; of the na.
tional game. 1
McGuirk, the new Twin-City first base
mau, is expected next Thursday. He is
badly needed and should h ave been bere
before. With a proper man at this im
portant corner the local infield will be all
right. Then with a couple of hard hit
ting outfielders, we will be ia it with the
best of them.
Davenport did what ought to make
some of the Rock Island ball cranks re
proach themszlves yeste rday. The con
tingent from that side of the river was
with the Twin-City boys and cheer
ed them from the start, instead
of guying them and encouraging thf vis
itors as some Rock Island people were in
the habit of doing when Davenport was
in the ball business.
Left Fielder Mackey failed to return
from Sterling in time for yesterday's game
as be promised, and Manager Sage has a
fine of $25 awaiting him. . The manage
ment has been altogether too lenient in
handling its men so far. Had it enforced
the proper discipline with First Baseman
Bailey from the first time he came into
the city, and not clung to him like grim
de ith to a frozen oyster, even though he
had proven himself unworthy and incom
petent, it would have no trouble with
Mackey. The latter is a valuable man,
but he is not so much of a credit to the
team but what he should be made to be
have himself, and this is applicable to
every man ia the team.
Nicholas Mertz paid a fine of f 10 and
costs this morning for making himself a
terror to his family last night.
