A. playing chart have received a thumbs down attitude on the part of direc tors of clubs affected, and the orig inal draft as published recently in The Gate City will remain official. The changes affected only the four clubs. Cedar Rapids, Clinton, Musca tine and Ottumwa. They were first suggested after Muscatine bad put up a howl about the original draft of the schedule. The changes were proposed by the schedule maker who refeired them to President Justice. Justice sub mitted them to the four clubs affect ed and to the schedule committee. It Is understood that Muscatine direc tors approved the changes, but a negative verdict was returned by the majority so the original draft re mains unchanged. When some wiz ard can draft a schedule that will give Muscatine opening and closing games at home, all holiday dates at home, and can turn all the rest of the day* on the calendar into Sundays with games for Muscatine at home on each and every one of those days, then it may be that Muscatine won't kick.

Editors of two wcore newspapers distributed over as many counties con tributed to the report today. The only general fact standing out in a summary of the reports is that the battle is the biggest ever waged at one time between the liquor and temperance forces of the state. It seems certain that the "dfrys," even if they win only half of the fight, will add heavily to their territory, in many cases gaining complete control of whole counties.

QU1NCY, 111., March 30.—With the Qulncy Equal Suffrage association disrupt id over the liquor issue, the labor unions arrayed squarely against a "dry" city and the Salem Evangeli cal Lutheran church, one of the lar gest congregations in the city, oppos ing the efforts to drive out saloons, the local option situation here pre sents more sensational elements than in any other township in the state. Miss Leona Peckenfcahgh, president of th» QulnKsy Equal Suffrage associa tion, was ousted from her office and membership after an open declaration against the local option fight, and) after it was discovered that she own ed property which was used for sa loon purposes, numerous members severed their connections with the association. The trades unionists in taking their unanimous vote against making the city "dry" declared that the ac tion would throw hundreds of men out of work, and that snrious Injury would be done the wages scale by these men ln their efforts to find em ployment. Rev. H. J. Leemhuis, pastor of the Salem Evangelical church, led his congregation in the opposition, by promptly withdrawing from the min isterial association when that body -brought up the proposal to start the local option campaign. When the an nual meeting of the church was held, the pastor informed hi# congregation that he did not think it the duty of a pastor to meddle in political affairs. The church by vote supported him. Practically the entire south half of Qniwcy, made up of families of Ger man descent, is allied against the campaign. Qulncy has 1« saloons. Dick's brewery employs hundreds of men. General belief is that the women's votes will be divided on practically the same lines as that of their hus bands and brothers.
