A few men of the league who are indi
vidually interested are out with another
proposition of beginning a new season
on June 15, the winners of each series to
play for thechampionsbiplat the end of
the second season. This is probably
another of "Onion Bill" McCaull's bril
liand ideas to gife Joliet a cinc'u on the
pennant. The double season scheme
was Drougm up wnen tbe league was
first organized and was given a thorough
discussion at the hands ot the press. At
the meeting of the league directors in
Chicago it was decided to adopt the old
single season, as that seemed to be the
one most preferable to tbe different towns
in the league. But now Joliet has a
hook in tbe pennant, and it is proposed
to clinch it by breaking the first season
off short on the 15th of June, and there
by assure the convict aggreg alion that it
will be one of the contesting clubs at the
second st ason's end.
It may suit the Joliets and the boys
from Socktown, but it don't taste well
here, and its hardly probable that the
Lunatics or Hautentauts would look on
the arrangement with much favor.
Mr. McCaull is paid his salary for serv
ing the league, and until a majority of the
clubs through their representatives sig
nify their disposition to change the pres
ent schedule it behoves William to bold
bis place, and not go hobnobing around
the other towns trying to work through
some scheme for a splitting up of the
league. In the case of the Peoria trans
fer to Aurora no one, not even tbe man
agement of that team had any knowledge
of the talked of change, but Wiley Will
seemed to know all about it, and be took
particular pains none of the other clubs
should knew anything about it. McCaull
may be a nice fellow and all that, but his
high, handed methods of conducting
league affairs won't certainly be approved
by all the clubs. It has been urged by
some that the double plan would add
new interest which is said to be lagging
in some places on account of Joliets' lead
of the other clubs, but as to that it ray
be said that the convicts will not in all
probability keep up their gait much
longer, and even now are beginning to
show a sign of weakening.
Then again should one club fall very
far behind in the opening of the sec
ond season it woula be more apt to
become discouraged and drop out. But
even should a second season be
adopted, it should not be opened
before July 15 at the earliest, so that
all the clubs could have a fair show
from now on of at least getting close
enough to see the pennant. It may be
that the ambitious secretary will not
change the present plan for a day or
two yet, and it might be a good idea
for him to consult some of the clubs and
find what they think about it in tbe
meantime, or it might be in order for
them to take it into their heads Lto give
him a gentle call down.

Quincy has signed Pitcher Davey
Sowders who has been in the city the
past week and he left with them for
Terre Haute this morning. In view of
the fact that President Hodges kept him

been tbe least Manager Sage could have
done to give him a trial.
Rhines and Harrington are on
the stool of repentance and deeply
regret their foolish breaks. Both
have become blue ribbon men. They
have asked the Cincinnati club for rein
statement, and if they prove their worthi

tion will be taken by the time the second
divisionjight commences. Willie Mc
Gill's case may not be hopeless, but he is
not wanted on the Cincinnati team.
