With perfect baseball weather, a somewhat unusual condition for the oc casion, and the most flattering pros pects In the league's history, the Three Eye teams this afternoon are playing the first games of the schedule season, with Rock Island at Springfield, Peoria at Davenport, Dubuque at Decatur, and Bloomington at Cedar Rapids. In all the towns In which opening games are being played today special ceremonies were arranged. The oppos ing teams were paraded through the streets in carriages or automobiles with a band and baseball enthusiasts and city officials, and the mayor hand ed up the first ball. At Springfield one ceremony was in cluded that was not down on the bills at the other towns. Preceding the game Mayor Devereux hoisted the pen nant won by the champions last year from a pole especially erected in the grounds for that purpose. BraK;lnt, lint Cnafldrnf. Rock Island has not, officially, at least, advanced any premature claims to the pennant. The uncertainties of baseball are fully realized here. Nev ertheless, local fans are convinced that this city starts out with the best team the city has yet had at the opening of a season and the men are showing the proper spirit. With confidence in the team and the management there Is ex cuse for the belief that every fan in dulges in that we will stir up a little smone netween now and Sept. 17. i Opcalaa; at Davenport. j The parade preceding the opening baseball game at Davenport this af ternoon, started from the Kimbai'j house at 2 o'clock. The line of march was as follows. South on Terry street to Third, west on Third to Harrison north on Harrfson to Fourth, east on Fourth to Brady, south on Brady to Second, west on Second to Warren north on Warren to Third. At the la? ter street the procession dispersed and the members of the band boarded cars for the park. In the procession were the members of both the Peoria and Iavenport teams in carriages. The managers, baseball officials and Mayoi Phillips, also rode in carriages over the line of march. The Davenport Military band of 14 pieces headed the proces sion. The game at the park was called at 3:45 o'clock. Mayor Phillips tossing up the first ball. Clinton. 2 Waterloo, 1. Clinton, Iowa May 4.

May it have a bright season's opening and a brilliant closing. Drennan and Reeves leave tonight for Crookston where they join the team of that city in the Northern league. There have been enough ball players in Rock Island in the past 12 hours to hold a good sized convention. Last evening the Bloomington team under Manager Connor came in on its way to Cedar Rapids, Just as Manager Mc- fifty Years the Standard ado from puro cream of tartar derived from grapes. miCC BAKING POWDER CO..

Hank with Rock Island ind Roxie with Bloomington. being articularly fond in their embraces Later in the evening the Waterloo team of the Iowa league arrived from the north enroute to Burlington where it plays today. The Waterloos ' went on through to Burlington last evening although Manager Meek and two of the players missed 'the train and re mained over, m Rock Island until this morning. Today the Peorias arrived In charge of Manager Nichol for the opening series with Davenport. Umpire Lynch came back from Bloomirtcton last evening and left for Cedar Rapids where he umpires the opening game with Bloomington. Four more i layers have, been releas ed from the Distiller team- Pitcher Weigand, and Infielders Hlppert. Troughton and Hoster were the quar tet receiving the transportation. Wel gand's arm has not recovered from a rheumatic attack; Hlppert and Hoster each showed well in practice. Hlppert being particularly strong In hatting, but the "powers that be" believe that Wilson and 'Balrd have made better showings. It Is Interesting to note that playing third base with the Washington team, the leader of the American league race over which the capital city proposes o go wild in the nature of its demon stration tonight, is Hunter Hill, the former infielder of the Rock Island team. It Is further worth the while to recall the fact that it was the wise headed know-it-all knocker who finally got Hill off the Rock Island nine this particularly in view of the fact that the same class has already started the anvil chorus on a member of the Rock Island aggregation. The knocker is the greatest evil of the day in baseball. He does not predominate In Rock Isl and, let us be thankful, bat he bobs up once in a while. When he does he should be called down, rather than heeded. Umpire Milan starts in with Rock Island at Springfield. That is not very encouraging but it is believed the boys will be able to overcome the disadvan tage. Washington. D. C. May 4. Wash ington's baseball fanatics are prepar ing to give Manager Stahl and his players such a reception on their re turn home from Philadelphia tonight as- never has been known In this city. A popular subscription U being raised to hire a band of musicians and "See ing Washington" automobiles, with which to escort the club from the train to the Rlggs house, where a compli mentary lunch will be served. At the grounds on Friday a big floral horse shoe will be presented to the players before the game starts. St. Louis, Mo., May 4. President i Robison of the St. Louis Nationals an nounced yesterday that Manager Charles ("Kid") Nichols had been re lieved of his position as manager of the club and David Brain from (he captaincy of the team. Jimmy Burke has been appointed to succeed them both. Nichols and Brain will be re tained, although Brain strenuously ar gued for his unconditional release. From those on the inside it is learned that the changes are in reality a sur render to the clique which has existed in the St. Louis National league team for years. Burke is the leader of trTis clique. Nichols and Brain were outsiu crs. Centerfielder George Ives has decid ed to jump his contract with the Dav enport club and to join the Clinton In dependent team.. Rumors to this ef fect reached Manager Hayes and Capt. Webster yesterday, and when confront ed with the report last eveniug, Ives admitted the truth of them but would offer no excuse. BASEBALL PLAYERS ENOUGH FOR AN ARMY Over Ten Thousand Men Engaged In the Game Whose Salaries Reach Over a Million Dollars. MM CP 11 onnnir?) mm era , IN SILK, MOHAIR, CREAM SATEEN, AND ALL THE NEW SHIRTING MATERIALS AT Ullemeyer & Sterling's OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOoXJOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOGOOOOOOOO ooooooocooooooocoooooooooopooociooooocxoooo The baseball fan of today requires something new in the way of ball play ing and in the style of work by the team, but how many fans are there to day who for a moment think of the! salaries paid out in one year by each league and then the entire body of leagues in the United States, r It would knock out the props from under the average person to say that the salaries of all the ball leagues af filiated with, the national organization in one year amount to over one mil lion, seven hundred, thousand dollars, but they do. ' . The"traveling expenses of tbe same number of men is over $500,000. The sundry expenses, such as the board bills, the room rent, the bails, the uni forms, the ground rept and the many other incidentals amount to more than $000,000. The total expenses of the same lot is over $2,000,000 per annum. almost $3,000,000 the price, of a new battleship. In the Three-Eye league the average salaries amount to $G,000 and over. Here is more than '$48,000 In this league that Rock Island is in that goes out for salaries. The expense of trav-J eling is computed to be $2,500 per team. This means an outlay of $20,000 additional to tho railroads for transpor-' tation alone. The other expenses amount to about $2,500 per team, or another $20,000. making the expenses alone $40,000, for just the Three-Eye league. Another point Is that the American league pays out $405,000 In salaries per year while the National pays out $335,000. There are today more than 10,000 men making a living playing the na tional game.
