It was another case of the same thing
yesterday, only not as bad as on the pre
vious days. Bartson and Z:is and Kling
and Snyder were the batteries, and but
six bits were made off either pitcher.
Both teams seemed to have taken off their
batting clothes and both had four big
black marks in tbe error column, neither
side having an earned run. It is hoped
that when the boys get home they will
again get acquainted with the ball aod
show the peop'e that they can yet give
the Convicts and Lunatics a touch of high
life in the base bill world. The manage
ment lat night signtd Bert Cunningham,
Moline's crack pitcher, snd an tff jrt is
being made to have him here in time for
tomorrow's game, and with "Ducky"
Hemp and Roberts, (if be is able) in the

since Cunningham has betn signed.
' Ducky" Hemp reported at Rockford
last night, and will probably play in
today's game there.
Second Baseman Corbet, and Fielder
Miller, late of the Terre Haute team, ar
doing great work with tbe Rockfords and
are winning much praise.
Umpire Dave Corcoran, another of tbe
I. -I. league umpires has resigned. They
come and go, but McGinley is with us
right along. He is tbe only one left of
the original staff.
Fielder Roberts was able to l eout and
walk around a while this afternooD.
The club's hard lack of 'ate has made him
anxious to play, and he says be wiil play
soon if he has to g on crutches.
And now comes tbe word from Boston
that Barney McLaughlin who was black
listed by tbe local management for ob
taining f 50 advance and not reporting,
has been sent up fcr five montbs for
drunkenness. How lucky it is that he
