THE LEAGUE SITUATION.
A Meetinjp Kxpected to Be Held
Mttine This Evening.
The Affairs of the I.-I. Rue Ball Orfrnt
satioo to Be Determined The
A meeting of the directors of the I.-I
leagne in called in Molioe today to deter
mine the ' future of the organization
President Kent of Jacksonville and Di
rectors Uulse of Rockford and Steele of
Joliet are expected at 3 o'clock this after
noon. Nothing will be done before
this evening, the visitor! putting in the
tims meanwhile sight seing.
Aa was txoec'ed Secretary McC&ulI is
trying his best to help Joliet to the $500
forfeit money, that is due to remain in
. the league treasury if it continues, or to
be distributed among the other clubs
which have been faithful if they contin
ue, and do third club is continued. He
Caull was ' in Chicago yesterday and
talked to a Herald reporter. Of the July
meeting McC&ull said: "After Terre
Haute bad besc dropped Joliet consented
to plav one month longer, when it was
agreed that the league was to dissolve
We were willing to lose the money we
had secured from the eale of our
players Only six games have been
claved at home since July 1(J. and our
club was away 83 long that the people
lost interest in it. The month passed,
and the ctber cluos begged so hard that
we plaved another week longer, but Mon
day we dropped oat for good, and the
players are now scattered. Rockford and
Rock Island are up in their dues, and
want to finish the season. Joliet and
Jacksonville are behind. As soon as they
settle up I will return them their checks.
Rck Tsiand is trying to pull down Joli
et s forfeit of 5500. but the league is
busted, and we fell out as per agreement.
I don't see how the league can finish the
season. Joliet has had all it wants of
base ball." Desperate dog in the manger
tactics those of McCauIl and Joliet to kill
the league to save themselves. No matter
what is done today it is hoped the league
will secure a new secretary. HcCaull's
bungling it what his caused all the trou
ble in the I.'-t league.
Rockford. like Rock Island Moline, is
for sticking the season out under all cir
cumstances. The Star says:
It is clearly understood that the clubs
which see the season through will divide
the guarantee money. The Joliet club
cannot well forfiet their $500, as the
management is depending on finishing
the season with a series of championship
games. Neither the Rockford or Rock
Island-Moline club will quit now, as
both are agreed upon finishing the ached
ule. If the present arrangement of
games does not suit Joliet, another can
be made, which the Rockford manage
ment is willing to do. It is hinted that
neither Joliet or Jacksonville paid their
last league dues, and there may be such
a thing aa the Rock fords and the Rock
Island-Molines finishing the season to
gether and profiting greatly thereby.
Tomorrow occurs the benefit game at
Twin-City park between nines selected
from among the players, the field being
filled out by amateurs of the two cities.
Bartson and Sage will be in the points
for the Roch Island contingent, and Cun
ningham and Sage for Moline. A lively
game is promised, and all should go out
and witness the contest and encour
age the local management in its efforts
to continue to maintain the club.
Tine Rascal That Lonsdale.
Henry Lonsdale, steward at the Har
per, who was in a justices' court yester
day on a charge of having borrowed $69
from one of the girls, and failed to re
turn it, skipped today with $15.20 be
longing ' to " another of the girls
of the house. The girl had just
been paid off, and Lonsdale meeting her
in the dining room, told her she had not
received enough pay, and taking it from
her said he would take it to the office
and have it made right. That was the
last seen of him. He shipped his bag
gage to Chicago yesterday under a fic
ticious name. The police have been no
tified, and hope to run him down.

GeBt is alleged to haye done for Mr.Zieg-

The above Sing is from this morning s
Rock Island Union. It is not alone at
Mr. Z esler, but at all of the Moline
delegates to yesterday's county convert
tion who did not vote for the resolution
for the presentation of Mr. Gest s name
at Busbnell. It is a sort of bulldozing
paragraph which is altogether against
the American idea thattvtry man (hall
exercise his own judgment in things po
litical. Mr. Z-egier has supported Mr
Gest three times, and will vote for him
azain if he is the nominee, isut it was
bis Derogative as a delegate to the county
convention to U6e his own judgment in
matters pertaining to the welfare of the
party. It will be his perogatiye also to
use his own judgment when be votes as a
delegate at Busbnell.
