wnnia an ace

afternoon a t

because the
long arm of
pulled a bat
tery error of
omission that
opened the gate
for Rock ford '
fint and only ran of the 10-lnnlng
sscouster that the Islanders can
tarned, 8-1.
McQuillan, for seven Innings, had
lata pitching with Invincible
change of pace; mowing down the
Box almost aa soon aa they stepped
to the plate. Too many pltebout for
Urine in the third gave the Rox
aatflelder the only free ducat
George issued during the day. A
aurlfice hit put the runner on

The big Islander pitching ace lost
i Vis chance to enter the ball of basi'
a tame with Catcher Rigeby, first
to feat In the eighth. Before, the
flake, Rigsby had two strikes and
a ball. He bad awung wild at the
second strike. In- bis first attempt
la the second inning he had been
ta easy victim. In the eighth it
looked as If George would fan him
Rigsby swung wild and missed a
tut one on the outside. There had
keen an error of omission between
BcQuillan and Dixon as to the
pitch. Somehow, Dixon was crossed
if. The ball slipped through his
kinds, striking bis right abinguard
ltd rolling into the diamond. Be
fore McQuillan could field it, Rlgs
ky had reached flrat base.

, Strong advanced Rigs on a eat
ncrlfice lo Purpura. Kid Hauk, the
ftppery nox mira sacaer, cnoppea
s long drive that too hard hit for
Hubert Dennis, to get under and the
ball rolled to the fence in left cen-
f jM tor a double, Rigsby scoring the
'Rox' one and only run. Things
looked glum when Leyme smacked
a single to left that aent Hauk to
third, but the aspect brightened
when Foelsch hit into a double play,
Benson to Murphy to Olockaon. It
was Benson's agility that made the
pity possible.
With the exception of the fifth,
when the Islanders touched Lefty
Anderson for stuff enough t break
the scoreless Ice, the Rox pitcher
kid them eating from his hand. The
core might have been different bad
Anderson displayed a change of
pace. v
What Might Have Bees,
Lefty had been slow-balling the
Islanders to death; moreover, with
excellent control. If the Athletics
cut-off had mixed his alow ball
with a good fast one, the Islanders
might have been helpless, despite
McQuillan's grand work in the box.
Hubert Dennis, playing in left
field, carried away the batting hon- J
ors tor the day, getting three hits, j
lacludlnc a trinla. in tour trios.
1 Dennis also scored both runs. He
to on in me urtn wun a naru
mash to left center that Strong
aisudged, the ball rolling past the
flagpole,- Dennie stopping at third.
McQuillan cracked one safe to
right, Dennis Coring. Murphy sac
rificed George along and he went
to third on Purpura'a infield out.
rWce threw out Benson, retiring
to tide.

afternoon In abort and aweet style.
The score at the and of six in

Argus 10 land opponents 1. The
game waa called before the '.com
pletion of seven innings to prevent
further Unnecessary slaughter.
"Sparks" McNealy had something
on the ball In the early rounds
that p aisled The Argus' batsmen,
bnt he weakened In a couple of in
nings and the game became a rout
tor the custodians of the city's wel
fare. "Vamp" Shannon pulled the star
play of the day for his club. An
Argus man bad slammed ont a
double and - Shannon fielded the
ball when It waa thrown into the
diamond. The runner made a break
for third and Earl puUed a Brodie
in the act of making the throw to
the base. This caused the runner
to exhibit violent signs of convuls
iveness and his power of locomo
tion gave out. Consequently he
was an easy -victim when Earl re
covered the ball. Score:

"Bock Island, TJL, lag. It, lKk
Brace Copelaad, Sporting Ed
Bar Bask Island Arcast I am atv.
teg yea this 4e oa tke proposed
Stawkanar-Naaa fight after faJHng to
get Bass' aaaw to a eeatract to
box tke 9am.' Brum all appear
aacea, tt seems that Bass Is trou
bled wttk cold feet or back fever.'
Have conceded everything he want
ed to get him tato the ring again
wttk Stsjokawr, bat aa yet have aot
been saoeessfal, aa be kas tke alibi
that he kas everytklag to late and
aetkiag to gate.
"At this Ume 'Bum' weighs 146
Caads. We tried to get Mass to
x him en a winner-take-all prop
osition Jf he weald do 16t penade
at 8 p. aa, bat be .refused, saytag
ke did aot care to snake weight He
claims to be a welterweight but
c aot do 16t pounds.
"We then raised tke weight to
168 aad stfll 'nothing doing.'. Fin
ally I said 64 pounds on a straight
nrepoatttea, which ke agreed on
aad of course we tkoagkt tke match
was clinched.
"We then got togetker wttk tke
promoters and stated ear terms.
Suss deaaaaded 80 per cent of the
gross receipts of tke gate. This Is
Jnst 6 per cent less tkaa tke world's
ehaasplen, Pete Herman, wants to
box la this city. Bather aa unus
ual demand for a boxer, who claims
to have kad only five fights ; how
ever, I figure It Is Just another
symptom of burk fever.
"There Is oae thing about tkls
match, tf pat on, aad that Is tke
fans are bound to see some action
as 'Bast' Stoehmer will give any of
these so-called tough boys a very
bnsy evening. It Is apparent ke is
net tke most popular boxer ta the
world, but he never disappoints his
nndienee. Some of his admirers
say he kas never beaten either
Commlskey or Dote. Maybe aot
bat yea can ask either of these two
boxers what they think of 'Bum
and yea will hear he is considered
ao set-up for nay of them. In tart
a home town boxer around these
parts has to almost murder an op
ponent before he gets aa much aa
a draw.-
"I am aot writing this letter as
aa apology for 'Bum,' bat 1 Jut
want the fans la this vicinity to
know why the Nnss-Stuehmer bout
feu through and that oar preposi
tion to Noas stands for any time.
"All we ask is tke first chance at
Nasa as I am afraid some one will
atop him before we get a chance
