GHAJ&EH TEE CIEOTIT SUGGESTED Aaothar fcmt tm lirmw tit lillawaa Cities Fram tha WMtn AmmMIh Bpk C-raraattaa ( m Siw Lnm All towns expecting to have a place in the Westers Base Bll . ciation next season are on the hustle. And Rock Island, while it has been heard from, should not allow inter est to lag or we will be left oat in the cold, such as was onr lot a con pie of dozen moons back. And then a scheme evidently hatched in Hawkeyedom is being agitated to leave Illinois ont of the Western association circuit next year. While such talk is idle and absurd, it is no more than dne the cities of this state, which have con tributed so largely to the support and success of the Western associa tion in the past, to resent this bare faced proposition. Iowa has the sorehead, 'an attack of which was superinduced by being compelled to put np a forfeit before being ad mitted to membership in the West ern association. Now three towns of Hawkeyedom imagine they have a moitgage on the association and want to sidetrack every town on the other side of the b g river and ran things to their own liking. The Iowa idea is to have the asso ciation composed thnsly: Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Dubuque and Burlington in the east, ana Sioux City. Omaha, Lincoln and St. Joseph in the west. Das Moines seems al most sure of a Dlace in tha U.atnrr, league, however, in which case the idea is to take Ottnmwa into the folJ. Expraaaa Too Great. The Iowa folk make the charge that the railroad expenses to reach Rock Island. Peoria. Rockford and Quincy are too great. If such a deal aitnongn it is idle to think of SUCh a thin? cues thrnnirh it has been suggested that a state league composed of Rick Isl and. Bloomington. Peoria, Rockford, Joliet and Springfield be formed. Not much. Let's hold on to tbe Western association, which the Illi nois towns have helped keep on its feet too long to submit to being kicked out. especially through the influence of those Hawkeye burrs. All agree that next season will be the most successful in the history of base ball; so let's all get to talking it over and prepare to do our part toward maintaining a first class team next year. Holly Sonders, who pitched the past season with the Peoria clnb, has been signed by New York. Manager Dugdale, of Peoria, is getting his men together for next season. On his list already are: Collins. Fisher, Frances. Burke. Schanb. Ward, Wadsworth, Mulli gan. Gilmore and Roach. Frank C.

Tha raml Characteristic As is usually the case, when the Lmon becomes distressed af;er hav ing undertaken more than it can swing, tbe annonymons corre.opon. aeni nas come to an attempted relief. One of these nonentities breaks out this morning with a series of nq- tions to The Ar;ls. When this brave individual exhibits eonraee enough to show his face, his proposi tions may rwssioiy oa considered. Tns Argus is too bnsy to grati y tbe whims of any of tbe nondescript army of Union correspondents. It has no time to grope in the dark or fire at random. In tbe meantime the Union s latest may be reminded that the habit of asking questions does not always belong to a man of brains. Am Imaortaat DiSTarMo.

Poor, little, unoffending Johnny Rinck. who would have thought of bally-ragging Johnny Rinck! Tet Tax Anois is scented of this diabol ical offense by the Union this morn, ing because it mentioned Johnav's brick-stay-up wager, which is a till puzzling the brain of the ambitions chief of the miming illuminator. And in the same spiteful spirit The Arocs is indirectly charged with ex posing that little incident which in volved Johnny and the editor of the Union because of a choice on Its part in the exceedingly entertaining controversy now oo. Preposterous as is the proposition that n demo cratic paper should manifest any in. terest in a contest of this kind, ex cept to give the news and such com ments as it may be privileged to. yet The Altars is but human, and there, fore has tbe weakness that makes all men kin, n fellow feeling for those of its profession, so that a criticism of method should not be considered by its pouting, over-excited contempor ary as an unfriendliness to motive. Professional pride, too. impels the suggestion that it cannot look with the highest favor on the hoist-by- its-own'petard practices ot the Union in this instance. FIXING UP THE GROUNDS.
