At the meeting of the I.-I. league at the
Peal house in Moline Jast evening for the
porpose of taking some action in tie of
the present criiis in league affiira. W.
W. Knt of Jacksonville, president of
tLe league, occupied the chair, and C.
C. Hodges of R'Krk Island was elected
secretary. There were also present V.
R. Moore, league director, and J. S.
HuIbp, president of the Restore cluo.
Tue following resolution introduced
by Air Hulse was adopted:
WUerens, The Jtliet club is in arrers
for dues to the I. -I. leaane and bis re
fused to pUj the games as per sch.-dule;
therefore, be it

in accordance with the provision of Ar
ticle 2. biciion 9 of the consiiiu ioa of
?b loMt uc Piovided, however, the sai l
Joliet club shall pv the amount of dues
in assessments tbtn it shall be allowed to
retain i'.s franchise.
Mr. Ila'se then introduced the follow
ing resolution, which was likewise adopt
ed: Whereas. From the report of Secre
tary McCaull. subm'lted to this meeting
of the league, it appears that the sccre
tary has drawa from tbe funds of the as
sociation eaUr7 tor six months, when he
has only served the assoctalion four and
ont-aalf months, and has been derelict
in performing tae dut es of secretary;
Resnlveii, Thttthe said W.S. McCaull
be rcmbvafl as secretary and treasurer of
Mr. Moore then introduced the follow
ing resolution which was also adopted;
Resolved, That President Kent be. and
he is hereby authorized to draw from the
Illinois Trust and Savings bank of Chi
cago, the Joliet certified check of f 500.
and to convert the same into the treas
ury of the league, and that the checks of
Jacksonville, Rock Island-Moline and
Rockford he drawn by the president,
from said Savings bank and returned to
the respective clubs, the Jcksonvilles to
pay the balance of duea. $78 40 to retain
ts franchise and cease playing for the
iseason of '92
F. C. Landers of Rockford was ap
pointed secretary and treasurer in place
of W. S. McCaull, deposed, and will en
ter upon his duties at once.
It was determined that the remaining
two weeks of the league should be played
out by the Rock Island-Moline and Rock
ford clubs, which two plucky organiza
tions are determined to fight it out
through thick and thin as long as the
public is wiih them. The clubs start
with their standing of last Sunday night
with Rock Island a trifle ahead in per
centage, the games of tbe week at Jack
sonville and the forfeited one here being
cancelled. Jacksonville retains its fran
chise in good standing, but will disband
for the season.
The Rock Island-Molines go to Rock
ford for a week next Saturday; then the
Hustlers ccme here for a week and wind
up the league games, the second pennant
being awarded according to the results.
It was thought at the meeting last even
ing that it was too late to consider con
solidation this season, but to stick it out
for two weeks and next year organize a
new league of reliable clubs.
I; is possible that at the end of two
weeks an arrangement will be made for a
number of exhibition gam is with teams
cf the Wisconsin lesguc and National
league. It is needles3 to say that both
teams should receive liberal patronage in
both cities and they doubtless will.
This afternoon occurs the exhibition
benefit game between nines of the club,
the positions being fihed out by ama
teurs, and for which a large number of
people have purchased tickets.

Yesterday morning the steamer Everets
started from Clinto.i with a Sunday
school picnic. When near Cordova a 10-
year-old boy named Harry Hall fell over
board and was drowned before he could
be reached. As soon as the barges could

possible effort was made to find him. The
boy was the son of a conductor on the C.

John Anderson, a young man employed
at Williams, White & Co's. foundry, met
with a very unfortunate eccident yester
day afternoon, by which he will lose the
sight of the right eye. He was encaged
in breaking scrap iron at the time of the
accident, when a piece of the metal flew
into his eye. The iron imbedded itself
in the eyeball, making quite a bad
wound. Dr. Dunn was called, but
hemorrhage had set in to such an extent
that the physician advised that he be
taken to Davenport for treatment at the
hands of an oculist.
The Davenport city council turned a
deaf ear last evening to the petitions of
the Davenport & Rock Island Railway
company to abandon conductors ou cer
tain of its lines and remove a portion of
its tracks on West Second street, and fur
thermore ordered the company to return
to a service of running cars both ways on
lower Third and Second streets instead
of down one street and up the other.
The action of the council is a great sur
prise to the company and will in the end
not result in any particular good to Dav
port. which has never manifested the
friendliness to the syndicate that a city
that is getting the advantages that Dav
enport in common with Rsck Island and
A SPLENDID IDEA-
The Formation of Democratic Ward
Clubs at Each l nucui Monday Even
ing: The suggestion of Chairman Wheelan,
of the democratic city-township com
mittee, that at each ward caucus called
for the purpose of selecting delegates to
tbe democratic county convention, a
democratic ward club be formed, i3 one
that Thk Argus desiics to urgently com
mend. It is a most excellent idea, and
one that could not be carried out at a
better time than when the ward caucuses
are held, and when the democrats
of the ward are assembled to
select their representatives to
the county convention. It is important
that the democrats of Illinois have as
strong an organization as possible in this
campaign. aid the best possible steps
that can be tsken looking to such an end
is the formation cf the ward clubs as Mr.
Wheelan has planned.
It is to be hoped the ward caucuses
will adopt the suggestion all over the city
next Mondw nicht.
