The Jacksonville team made its first
appearance here yesterday under the
management of Guy Hecker.and has sev
eral new faces in the aggregation. They
went out to the field with a vim that was
pleasing, but th?ir uniforms are almost as
raeged as those of our own team. They
will both probably appear in cew ones
ere long. Gragg was pulf in the box for
the visitors and the way I he made the
locals pound the atmosphere full of holes
was b caution. Our usually heavy hit
uuj; team straightened out but four of
his funny curves into safe hits, and but
throe men phssk I over the rubber, they
being all earned runs, however. In the
second inning when the visitors were just
getting their mouths fixed for a shutout
McGuirk, the mean old thing, got one of
Gragg's outs on the end of his wagon
tongue and lifted it high into the
etherial regions and when it came
down it was on the other side of the right
Held fence, the old man trotting leisurely
a oucil ths bases. Again in the third
M.hen Xulton had gotten his base on balls
Paddy Daie hit the ball square in the face
and it climbed over the fence so that the
two runs scored. This ended the run
getting for Rock Island-Moline.
The work of Cunningham in the box
wa? very good and was fully up to ex
pectatiuns. lie has an easy delivery, a
grod eve for watching bases, and fields
his position admirably. He, like Collins,
tins a drop that is exceedingly deceptive.
The game was interesting throughout,
and was well attended, it beiDg charac
terized by no especially brilliant features,
the wo. k of both Lynch and Schnub at
short beir.g however of the gilt edged or
der. Morriaritj's home run was secured

Gragg was too much for the home boys
after the third inning.
The two double plays of the locals yes
terday were clean and pretty.
Bartson pitches today, Collins tomor
row and Cunningham Sunday.
Hemp's a beaut. He plays ball and
plays hard from beginning to end.
Hemp pulled down a couple of possible
three-baggers out in his garden, that won
him wild applause.
Such gam;s as yesterday's, always
please the people, and will no doubt in
crease the attendance.
Summed up briefly, the game was lost
by making errors at the wrong time and
not making hits at the right time.
McGinley is a good umpire.and should
pay no attention to the slurs of those who
permit prejudice to warp their judgment.
Cunningham is a clever pitcher and a
fine player. lie fields h:s position beau
tifully, and the Twin Cities haye reason
to be proud of him.
Jacksonville has released big Tom
Ramsey and is running with two pitchers.
Ramsey will play with a semi-profes
sional team at Freeport.
Becker, the first baseman, manager
and captain of the Jacksonville is a
dead ringer for Anson in the field, and he
plays with corresponding energy.
Fielder Roberts is not improving as
rapidly as was hoped, although he is
gradually gaining, and be expects to

The management ought to remove the
callow youth from the grand stand, who
persists in veiling "Suggs" at Umpire
HcKinley. That one word has tenden
cy to make the ayerage fan feel goose
flesh all over him.
Last evening President Hodges direc
ted Manager Sage to release Hoffman at
once, the move being made in the inter
ests of economy, the club feeling that it
was carrying too many men. Manager
Sage was notified while at Rockford to
make the change.
The home club is putting up ball now
that deseryes eupport and encouragement.
We would rather see the boys lose-by such
a score, and after such a game as that
yesterday, than to win by an overwhelm
ing range of difference. The clubs are
now nicely bunched with the pennant
anybody's until won. Rock Island is
just as apt to get it as Joliet, and the
chances of Rockford and Jacksonville arc
as good every whit, as those of the other
two. But it takes money to make the
mare go, no matter how good the article
of ball presented. There are a number of
outstanding subscriptions due the local
club. They must be secured if the team is
to continue. The management has gotten

pledged will meet with liberal response
The Josephine took a big moonlight
excursion down the river last night, and
returned shortly after midnight.
An excursion train of 12 coaches
crowded full of people, came ia from Ot
tawa over the C. R. I. & P.. this morn
ing, part of whom were taken out on the
steamer Josephine, and 1-trgea number
are visiting the three cities
The steamer. Silver Crescent brought
up an excursion from down the river yes
terday of about 750. and landed them all
in Davenport. The reason for not land
ing on this side of the river is said to be
the objectionable dump boat at the foot
of Seventeenth street.
Rock Island is fast becoming famed as
an objective point for excursions, the
number so far exceeding those of last
season considerably. Another evidence
of it is the ability if the hotels and res
taurans to feed the strangers who visit
our city, which is a drawback usually to
the smaller towns.
There has been some criticism as to the
manner in which the excursionists were
handled as to returning from the Tower
yesterday, occasioned :.y complaints of
some of the visitors to the city. The
Argus ha9 learned upon investigation
that the street car company had given the
excursionists the rate of one tare for the
round trip agreeing to take them to the
Tower and bring them back at 3 o'clock.
The visitors took it for granted that the
rate was good on any of the cars which
was not intended, as those in charge of
the excursion had agreed to go all at one
time, which would not crowd the regular
passengers of the line. As many as de
sired to return in the meautime were
brought back at the regular rate of 10
cents. The company made the regulat
tions, it claims, as a protection to its
In all probability Mr. Cable will be
the next candidate for congress on the
democratic ticket from this district. If
he is be will be elected as easily as he
was before. No man can truthfully say
that he was ever deliberately snubbed by
Mr. Cable, and those who have had bus
iness with him find him exceedingly
accommodating. He has risen in poli
tics and fame very fast within ttie
past few years, and men should rejoice
with him in bis prosperity, rather tban to
contemplate his downfall, from positions
purely within the gift of his own party.
Clearly he is a man of more tban ordinary
ability else he could not hold the posi
tions he hoes. If he is fortunate enough
to eet a foreign mission in case of Cleve
land's election, the Democrat will be
happy to see it, for Mr. Cable deserves
it. II is energy should command respect.
