Today the hearts ef Rock Island, Moline, East Moline and Davenport, and many distant hearts of out-of-the-way centers . where "Babe" Meanor and square-dealing are synoaymous, are gripped with sorrow for the loss ef one who will be hard to re. place.. Fellow-townsmen and chance acquaintances alike will share the grief that only the biggest and bravest hearts may feeL "Babe" Meanor. was an unusual Ban. - He had no secrets, no petty principles, no grievous faults, aad yet, "Babe" was one of the most misunderstood men In the community. His friends ranged from the first citizens of many cities to the lowliest un fortunatesoften the derelicts of life, who crept to him for food and a stake. Friend or foe or total stranger, "lube's" home aad place of business were shelters where the glow of good-fellow ship often opened the door to a new life and redemption. Yet, for all his legion of friends, "Babe" was often crnelly misjudged by those who could not read human nature, or who, perhaps, were too.frausrht with prejudices to yield him the ad vantage of a doubt. The world Is too eaer to judge, too quick to condemn. Bed-blooded "Bit be" never meant the world an lota of harm. He loved life too well to injure It knowingly. , "Babe" lived wholly en the surface. Be spoke his mind and showed his hand without fear or favor. He was no coward. His life was an open book, with the pages thnmbmarked. Many were tnrned back a reminders of something impressive in his life that he wished everyone might notice If they cared to look things worth-while enacted out of goodness-of-heart, which was only natural for "Babe." There were many doors in "BabeV great heart. Many of these swnng to and fro so regularly that the structure was im paired. Scores and scores of his best beloved friends all had latch-keys and used them at will. "The more, the mtsrler," was "Babe's" favorite adage even unto the end when he died ajnartyr to good-fellowship just as eagerly as ne nau uvea. Such a surging tide of benevoleace was gradually Tutting away the sands beneatji "BabeV big, benerons heart. He never eared for himself so long as his friends' pleasures were anpeased. The only question "Babe' ever was known to ask was, "Do yon need anything!" How many, many times was the reply in the affirmative! How many, many times was the need supplied with out a wasted word or a lost motion! Yesterday, without warning, "Babe's" great heart burst It could serve his beloved friends no longer. It was as if a great, sheltering oaht had fallen in a storm. It was as if a lofty moun tain had crumbled in an earthquake, leaving peaceful plains to face the blistering sun without cooliug shade. Something snap, ped after he had brought his happy family and, several intimate friends from an ail-day outing. Xheu all was still By his sqaare.deallng,"Babe" Meanor's name was respected in the highest courts, tte most private homes and on the curb stones, where the eddies of life cast up their flotsam and jetsam, it for no other reason than to discuss "Babe" Meanor's next box ing entertainment. Hlg h state, county and city officials permit ted boxing in Rock Island under "babe's" supervision becanse they knew he would keep the sport tree and clear of disrepute. "Babe's" word was as good as his bond with his contempo raries far aad near. Some of his largest transactions werji clinched on verbal agreements because the otherpartIes knew that "Babe" Meanor never broke his word. "Babe" dealt with the boxers in like manner. He often had to pay for their ser vices out of his own pocket after a disappointing attendance. Once agreed, he never snght to cut a price. In this way, "Babe" was an outstanding figure in the boxing world and with all eyes centered at times on. Rock Island; ' The shock of his sudden passing spread awed silence over the tri-cities. Relatives, friends aad patrons were too stunned to believe that "Babe"t had really taken the final count of the Su preme Referee, clinging to the hopeless hope that there was some mistake. Today they will begin to reaUxe the truth and many a heart will be bowed In common grief, for "Babe" Meanor was one of Rock Island's biggest men; ana Rock Island shall never forget. ' I, myself, cannot believe that he has gone. He was always so virile, so positive, so thoughtful of others and so neglectful of himself. StfH, we all have only to look back Into our own Bves to recall such a passing.. Then, surely, our hearts shall go nt to "Babe" Meanor's bereaved family In a great wave of well meaning sympathy, for their loss is far greater than oars.

Meanwhile Brooklyn politely lost two to St. Louis and the space be tween the teams remained unchang ed today, tho Robins barely main taining a hold on the second rung. Cincinnati didn't take a chance, but salted down another game at Baa ton"s eipense and 7 cemented the Reds in first place, i ' In the American league the New Tork Yanks alone are scorching just now.

Please convey the beys' and my own sympathy to Mrs. Meaaor. 'Bake' was the best sport I ever met "GEORGE M'QUILLAN." - Middle west sporting circles were simultaneously shocked and deep ly touched yesterday when the news of "Babe" Meanor's sudden and untimely . death was flashed over the wires to, intimate friends and newspapers.. Responding tel egrams similar to the one from George McQuillan, next year's man ager 'of the Islanders, began to pour in today, indicating the re spect and admiration of the gen eral sporting field.

The messages came from practic ally every city where "Babe" Mea nor was known. Many who had fostered fancied grievances joined with the others in the almost unanimous tribute that "Babe1 was the squarest-dealing sports man witn wnom uey had ever come in contact City Touched Deeply. News of "Babe's" death touched Rock Island from Mayor Schrlver down. Expressions of sympathy poured into the home today and kept coming. There seemed to be no end of 'the good words for "Babe" from those who, perhaps, knew him best Friend and foe ex pressed themselves in common ac cord. "Babe's" enviable record in the sporting world was the topic In al most every gathering late yesterday and today. His familiar and ever. cheerful presence had done much to tide over dark days of Rock Is land sports; moreover, "Babe" al ways gave freely that sport might not only become established, but continue to prosper. It was learned that he was one of the etaunchest moral and finan cial supporters of last year's champion Independents, and that he never turned a single plea for sports aside. As George McQuil lan says in his telegram above, "Babe" was always one of our best boosters, not for sport alone, but for the welfare of everything es sential to the city. It is hard to believe that "Babe' has passed hard for his legion of friends scattered all over the country. GRAND CIRCUIT. Readville, Mass., Aug. 31.

BT DEA3T SNYDER. 1 Benton Harbor, Mich., Aug. 31. The business end of the Dempsey Miske championship match sched uled here for Labor day is finding plenty to do in anticipation of handling the largest crowd of fight fans that have ever visited, the quiet and Eerene village of Benton Har bor. . It is the opinion of Promoter Floyd FitzsimmoDS, who has al ready sunk 1100,000 in the card, that hi3 show will draw at least 150,000 shekels. That is the gamb ling chance which he is taking. The gate receipts of the Leonard-White bout, which ran around $50,000, will have to be more than di'bled on Sept 6 or Fitz will be out a bunch of kale. ' . Rain or Shine. He hopes to have an advance sale that will cover the cost of tho show and pick up the rest of it on the days of the fight. " Jack Kearns is getting a flat guarantee of $50,000 with a privil ege of a cut on the influx of coin as the champion's end, while Jack Reddy is to get $25,000 for Miske, the contender.' Although his arena has nothing for a covering except the Michigan skies, he says the milling will start promptly at 3 o'clock in the after noon, rain or shine. The reserved section of the out doors arena will take care of IS, 000 people and bleacher seats will accommodate 2,000 more. Prices H. S. FOOTBALL SQUAD CALLED OUT TO DRILL Coach Kimmol Puts His Hopefuls Through First Practice Stunts of Season at Reservoir. BY "ALD3I AL." Although the weather is more suitable for baseball than football. moleskins were issued at the high last night to the letter men of last year's squad and others who made good showing last fall. Twelve suits were distributed, but no prac tice was held. Tonight a general call for football candidates will be made and Coach Kimmel will take the squad to Reservoir park for the first workout of the year. Due to the heat the boys will probably discard most of their heavy football outfits and come out attired in combination football gym suits. Several new jerseys, stockinrs and other material have been purchased .since last spring. The Islanders will be attired in new jerseys of a different design later in the month. The new sweat ers will be crimson with a V-neck trimmed, with gold and a gold Stripe on the sleeves. This i something different than Rock Island has ever had and will go a long way in im proving the appearance of the squad. . . Good Line Predicted. With three ends, a tacklp, center and two guards, all regulars on last year's squad, the high school will have a mighty line. It is in the backfield. on which Coach Kim mel will have work in building up a good machine, With C. Blanken burg, last year's half, and Masters, a sub, making bids tor regular places at the halves, it is not such a difficult problem after all. A fullback will probably be pick ed from the line, but it is with the quarterback that the coach will have the greatest trouble. Both Shedder and Beihle of last season's scrubs, are likely candidates, but lack the necessary experience that will be needed at that position Besides the letter men from last ear there will be several linemen from the scrubs who made a gow, showing last season and will make the regulars put up a hard fight for their positions. There was a full second team out all last fall and almost all of these men will be back in moleskins again this sea son. This will give the Islanders quite a large number of experienc ed men to pick from, which something that waa lacking last faU. .; Title Chances Good. From an advanced outlook , the chances for Rock Island to grab the tri-city title ia very rood. The material is there and all that is needed' are some new plays. The BBraea are Borne Dew pio.yo. . w Islanders are especially anxious to V I w lf?S wwyj rioyVTrr of reserved seats range from $5.50 to $30. Sandy Floor. The sandpit arena is one of the bast in the country. It is a circular tier of reserves being but 125 feet away from the ring. The sand has been excavated from the center of the site and the benches rise on the sloping sands, giving the same ef fect as circus seats. Every fan will have his feet on the sandy floor. There will be no accidents unless the bottom of the world should happen to drop out in this particular section of the country on that day. " Toledo vs. Here. In sizing up things at Benton Harbor now and Toledo, scene of the last heavyweight championship go, a big difference can be noticed. Things were more pretentious in the' Ohio city than they are here. The Toledo atmosphere was very tense and strained. Tex Rickard was a hard man to see. He was smottrered with interviewers and one had to send in a card to get a chin with him. At Benton Harbor anyone who can keep track of Fitzsimmons' red roadster, is welcome to confab to his heart's desire. The Willard Dempsey fight was an "on-again-off-again" affair up until the day they went on. Here everything is Jig. Things Switched. In Toledo the Willard camp was aloof from the crowds. There were , no "tiangers-on about the premises, while Dempsey's training T : win from Moline. Last fall the "Swedes" defeated them by the close score of 13 to 12, and the lo cals claim that if it had not been for some rather shady decisions they would have won easily. For this reason the Moline-Rock Island game this year promises to bo a mean fight BABE RUTH FILES SUIT FOR $1,000,000 VS. MOVIE PEOPLE New York, Aug. 3L (United Press.)

In the Day's News Forty years old today Is Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, who 'has the distinction of being thtf only woman in the world who is a reign ing sovereign in her own right, a nosition she has held since 1890, when, at the age of 10 years, she ascended the throne at the death of her father, King William III. Her mother, Queen Emma, governed the mnntrv as regent until the young queen reached her 18th birthday, when she was formally inaugurat ed as sovereign. In 1900 Wilhel mina married Prince Henry of Meeklenbura-Schwerin, and in 1909 the couple waa 1 blessed with a daughter, the little Princess Jul iana, who is heir to the throne. Not withstanding the fact that she is the richest sovereign in Europe in her own right; Queen Wilhelmina is sftnnle in her manner of living and gives personal attention to her hnnaAhnld affair as well aa to af- , fairs of state. "" quarters were clouded with, camp followers. ' At Benton Harbor things are re versed with Dempsey as the cham pion. While his cottage Is an open house arrangement it is quiet and secluded in a way. Only Kearns, the sparring partners, the colored chef and his wife and a few of the champion's friends are there. Over in Miske's camp there Is more or less confusion. There's quite a bunch of boxers, tans and otherwise stopping at Ike Bern stein's summer hotel. In other words, Dempsey's camp at Benton Harbor is more like Willard's was at Toledo and Miske's is very much similar to Dempsey's surroundings at Toledo. Quiet Life. Willard used to hold court for an hour at the Secor hotel in To ledo daily, when he was training. As regularly, as the , clock jingled high noon Willard popped into the hotel to be stared at, admired and questioned. DemDser isn t nulline that stuff here. He spends his time playing cards, picking big blue plums in the back yard, playing with the kids who happen along ' and occasional ly taking a spin to the downtown headquarters in the Fitzsimmons roadster.. Also there are nd signs of graft ins: here vet as there was in To ledo. You can still get a drink of water at the town well if you can push a pumphandle up and down. Such is the life of a village that entertains celebrities. ; COMES TO PUT JACK IN SHAPE Marty Farrell May Also Sub for Wiggins on Card; New Accom- Kodatlons Announced. Benton Harbor. Mich., Aug. 31. With the arrival of Marty Farrell, Pacific coast middleweight, who has cleaned up everything in his class back in his home sector, the smile of World's Heavyweight Champion Jack Dempsey has taken on new proportions. The object of Fan-ell's long trip here was revealed when Promoter Floyd Fitzsimmons announced that there was a possibility of his sub stituting for C'-uck Wiggins of In dianapolis, against. Harry Greb of Pittsburgh, in one of . the four heavyweight bouts on the Labor day card, " ,.' '- Trial Horse for Champ. Dempsey's interest in" Farroll's coming naturally was in his avail ability as a Bparrlng partner. The champion has one, speedy boxer in Panama Joe Gans to work with, but is tickled that Farrell is now on the job and ready to give him more work. " - Greb was expected to Join the Dempsey ; camp, but he hasn t shown yet and it's a question now whether or not he will arrive in time to, help. . f Six Work on Miske, The camp of Billy Miskerby Sat urday, will Jlni six heavyweights ready to assist the challenger in the final eight days of his training. Jack Heinen, Jimmle Delaney and Texas Billy Burke have borne the brunt of his vicious attacks to date. Homer Smith, matched1 with Tony Melchoir of Chicago on the Labor day schedule of bouts, haa promised to come Saturday. "Roughhouse" Wilson and Jack Blackburne, colored heavyweights, are the others expected in this week. Miske shouldn't lack for capable sparring partners when all the boy get on the job. ' Extra Accommodations. Snecial boat and railroad service has been arranged by Promoter Floyd Fltxsimmons to handle fight fans who will come to Benton Har bor. i Nearly ten thousand persons wit nessed the White-Leonard scrap here July 5.
