At the meet tig. held in the office

der of 1'aseball Rooters was organ
ized with nine charter members. The
following officers were elected:
President Ralph Haverstick.
Secretary J. P. Dolly.

There was an understanding that
the titles of these officers should be
changed to harmonize with the regu
lations nt the order as noon as they
should arrive. The colors of the lo
cal lmseball club, blue and gray, were
adopted. It was left to the chair to
ipoint a committee to wait upon the
merchants of the city to arrange for
the closing of their places of business
between 2;30 and 5:30 p. m. on the
day cf the cptningr gam, ho to ap
point an executive committee to ar
range for a street parade on that day.
The proportion is to have the city
officials and members of the two
haAebnl! clubs In carriages, headed by
a band and followed by the Diamond
X). 4. The proposed route of march
is from- Fourth avenue and Twen
tieth street north to Second avenue,
west on Second to Fifteenth street
south to. nurd avenue and east to
Seventeenth street, where cars will
lie iMianlcil tor the park. 1 he execu
tive committee is to arrange the tie
tails of this movement. The meet
ing was adjourned to meet at 7:30
next Monday evening.

SUPT. HAYDEN'S MUSICAL
ABILITY IN QUESTION
Some of the musical people of the
it y are telling a story which has the
earmarks of a joke, though whether
the laugh is on City School Superin
tendent H. li. Hayden. another gen
tleman of somewhat similar name
some ninety odd years deceased, or
the Rock island Choral union, the
listener to the tale is usually left to
judge for himself. Incidentally it
brings us once 11141 rc face to face with
the fact that this is an age of spec
ialists and proficiency in one line
does not insure the possession of tal
ent in another direction.
Yesterday, so it is said, one of the
officers of the Rock Island Choral
union was approached by a young
man who had taken out an associate
membership in the organization. The
latter, after a tine amount of hedg
ing, filially informed the promoter of
things musical that he was not alto
gether satisfied with Ihe turn affairs
had taken and, after talking it all
over with his best girl, who was in on
the deal to the extent of being en
titled with him to attend the four
concerts during the season, he said
they had decided to ask their $3 back
anil the cancellation of the member
ship. The musician was mystified am!
asked for an explanation. "Well;
you s;'e." replied the other, "I've no
ticed that the first concert is to be
an oratorio by Hayden and that kind
of set me against the whole thing, for
I don't believe the music will be worth
much." The dissatisfied member got

I here is as yet considerable uncer
tainty as to whether the railroads
entering the city will run any special
excursions for the main day of the (i
A. R. encampment. Wednesday, May
21. There seems to be a. general dis
position to allow the regular train
service to take care of the business
as far as it is able. The I'.nrlington
has turned down one excursion, that
of the musicians of (ialesburg, who
expected to Dring "j.ooo people Here
on the ground that the road will not
have sufficient equipment at its dis
posal on that date to put on any spe
cial trains. This attitude on the part
f the transportation companies, if
persisted in, will be the means of de
priving the city of several thousand
visitors, who would take advantage
of siH-cial service if it were offered.
The Rock Island claims to have
made a thorough canvasaof the ter
ritory between here and Joliet, and it
is claimed that there will not be
more business either, dav of the en
campment than can be taken care of
by the regular trains, of which there
are four eacn way daily, .11t1111011a1
irs will be put on to handle the ex

The local representatives of the
Milwaukee know of no excursion to
be run by that line, and the claim is
made that there are no organizations
pushing the demand for special train
service 111 me territory covereu
the road, lioth the Peoria and Bur
lington roads claim to 1h investigat

much travel may be depended upon
