The Peoria Journal Continues
to Pursue Onion Bill.
THE ERSTWHILE I.-I. LEAGUE SECT.
An Explanation Demanded as to the Where
abouts of 94,000 of League Moneys Base
Ball I -aw on the Suhject Facts and Mis
The Peoria J6urnal continues ita pur-
Bait of Onion Bill McCaull, erstwhile sec
retary and treasurer of the I.-I. league.
It says in Us issue of Monc'aVj evening:
Although many inquiries are being
made relative to the finaccial sffaira ot
the defunct Iowa-Illinois base ball league
no answer csme from W. S. McCaull,
the erstwhile secretary and treasurer of
that grand segregation of base ball mat
ters. I hat the matter is attracting some
attention outside of Peoria the follow
ing, which is from the Rock Island Ar
gus, of the 16tb, is submitted:
The Peoria Journal is making an
an interrogatory investigation of
the affairs of the late lamented Illinois-
Iowa base ball league, and has come to the
conclusion that somethine is wrong with
ex Secretary Bill McCaull's financiering.
It is only necessary to stale that thus
far Treasurer McCaull, alias Onion Bill,
has maintained a rigid silence in the mat
ter, vouchsafing no information relative
to the $4,000, which come into his poss
ession as treasurer of the league. When
he was iu Peoria, early in the season the
time the Peoria suckers were about to
take the hook, he was asked where tLe
league kept the guarantee fund, an 1 to
this question he answered, truthfully,
"where it will be saTe." McCaull re
ceived from the Peoria orgnn'zuion
besides the $125 which went
toward his modest salary of ft. 000, a
certificate of deposit for $500. With
this in his ieans he set sail for Jo'.iet or
Aurora, and that was nbout the Inst seen
of him ti'l he returned to . Peoria,
with Sanger S'eel of Joliet, and arbitrar
ily took the Pc-oria team, bag and bg
gage to Aurora, where he had opened up
a Jim crow store for the sale of base ball
eoods. etc. Scarcely bad he Jeft Pt-o-r
a before the certificate of deposit was
sent back for redemption, it haying teen
cashed in Chicago, and this before the
season was fairly commenced. Relative
to the matter and disposition of the
guarantee fund the following which is
from tbe constitution of the I.-I. league,
(2). Every league club shall on or be
fore tbe first day of April each year de
liver unto tbe treasurer of the league as
trustee for the other league cluba an ap
proved certified check in tbe sum of five
hundred (f 500) dollars, the same to be
deposited within the Illinois Trust and
Savings banK of Chicago, and there held
as a guarantee that the giver will remain
a member of this league until tbe close of
that season, paying all dues, fines and
assessments and playing all gsmes as per
schedule. In case of forfeiture of fran
chise by any club the check given by that
club shall be converted into the treasury
of the league. Every club that remains
in good standing until the close of the
season shall have their guarantee check
returned unto them) as amended Jan
nary. 1892 )
The facts of the case are that soon af
ter the league was formed, or pretended
to have been formed, there was an ap
parent effort on tbe part of McCaull to
dismember it, and this he fully accom
plished, when he took the Peoria Club to
Aurora, and by disregarding the orders of
President McKee and other officers of tbe
league The three clubs that remnin-d
members of the league till it turned up
its toes, are in the same boat with those
that did not so remain, so far as the
guarantee fund is concerned, for not one
dollar of their mney has been returned
While the Journal is correct in many
of its conjectures, especially that Mc
Caull more than anyone else caused tbe
disruption of the league as it originally
existed, it is in error as to tbe return of
the guarantee money. Rock Island -Mo -line,
Rockford and Jacksonville received
all that was due them, and the worst of it
is that Joliet, which was not entitled to
it. probably did also.
Tonight F. M. Wills, the comedian, is
to appear at Harper's theatre in his
sparkling new comedy, "Wait Till the
Clouds Roll By." The iaston (Pa.)
The orignal Frank M. Wills appeared
las-, night at the opera house in his new
comedy, "Wait Till the Clouds Roll
By. bv W. E. McCann, of the Balti
more News, and the performance was
one of the best we ever witnessed. From
beginning to finish the audience seemi d
convulsed wi'.h laughter. Mr. Wills, tbe
bright par icular star of the occasion, is a
comedian of intrinsic merit, able alike to
portray the ridiculous and tbe pathetic,
while the company supporting him is in
all respects worthy of tbe star. In re
viewing such an excellent performance, it
is difficult to discriminate without doing
an injustice to some one. The musical
numbers were rendered in such manner
taat encore followed encore, and the
audience seemed never to tire. John
Wills is inimitable, his singing and danc
ing very clever.
On Friday evening we are to have
Mi. ton and Dolly Nobles in their new
comedy of the present times, "For Reve
nue Only." The Chicago Tribune says:
Last night Milton Nobles produced
"For Revenue Only," a political and sa
tirical comedy in four acts. There we a
little to indicate a first performance. The
lines were exceedingly even and pat, bus
iness finished and crisp aud the charac
ters all very mellow and well drawn All
of which ia due. I opine, to the level bead
and thorough training of Mr Nobles
himself. Tbe play is astonishingly well
written, good English, bright dialogue, a
bit of pathos and plenty of homespun
humor. There ia nothing absolutely ori
ginal in any of the ideas nor the plot.
The satires of Mark Twain Bret Bart.
Bill Nye and tbe prolific campaign
Punchinello in newspaper columns have
all been assimilated and cleverly redressed
by Mr. Nobles and made to serve as an
admirably if somewhat familiar material
for a plav of exactlv the mmlii Mr.
Nobles' audiences enjoy.
There never has been and we doubt
ery much if there ever will be a genius
to equal Lew Dockatader on the minstrel
stage. He is always original and always
has many bappy surprises for his audi
ence. It is therefore a Dleasure - to an
nounce the appearance of Mr. Docksta-
der and his newly organized minstrel
company at the Burtis at Davenport next
Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2.
Among the leading members of the
troupe are Geo. Powers, conredian and
bmjo soloist; Frank Dumont, who en
joys the sobriquet of "The Minstrel
Shakespeare;" False and Semons, musi
cal specialists and comedians; Blocksom
and Burns comedians, in a very laugha
ble act called "Funnabalism;" Wm
Rowe, a remarkable somersault pedesta
dancer; and John C. Harrington, end
man and singing and dancing comedian.
The vocal department includes eight so
loists, a larpe chorus, and the renowned
"Columbia Quartette." Mr. Dockstader
has a new specialty in which be appears
made up as "Ward McAllister."

I feel it my duty to say a few words in

entirely without solicitation. I have used

Ely's Cream Balm is especially adapted

all sufferers from dry catarrh from per
sonal experience. Michael Herr, phar
Ely's Cream Ra'm has cured many
cases of catarrh. It is in constant de
mand George W. Hoyt, pharmacist,
Imitations have been put upon the
market so closely resembling Allcock's
Porous Plasters in general appearance as
to be well calculated to deceive. It is.
however, in general appearance only that
they compare with Allcock's. for tbey are
worse than worthless, inasmuch as the y
contain deleterious ingredients which are
apt to cause serious injury. Remember
that Allcock's are tbe only genuine por
ous plasters the best external remedy
ever produced; and when purchasing
plas'ers do not only ak but see that you
get Allcock's Porous Plasters.
Catarrh Can't be Cored
with local applications, as tbey cannot
reach tbe seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of tbe best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on tbe
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
