Sloomington Dope Man is Pro
ceeding to Make Danville
SEEMS A CASE OF POLITICS
Reck Island Fans Believe Rockford
Most Desirable City That is Now
The Hloomington baseball dope man
'.vith the same rockfcW disregard of
consequences as he displayed last
spring when , he attempted to foist
uKn the Three-Eye league, whether or
no, a schedule, to suit his own particu
lar fancy, is proceeding to make Dan
ville a number of the circuit to take
the place of Davenport without con
sulting anybody else. The objections
of Decatur to the prospects of being
paired with Danville are overruled off
hand and the former city is given as
surance that it need not fear anything
on that score, for Blooinington has de
cided to pair itstlf with the new mem
ber in the making of the next schedule.
From this end of the line it looks
like a case of playing politics to keep
the league headquarters at Blooming
ton. Last year President Holland was
teelccted by a bare majority and this
year James T. Hayes of Davenport, it
is understood, will be an active can
didate for the office. Therefore the
best interests of the league are made
secondary to the consideration of get
ting a new town that will feel itself
obligated to the present regime for its
admission and which will therefore bo
bound to repay the debt at theannual
election and in other ways as the op
portunity arises later oh.

Court Holds Objection S'loeld Have
Been Made Earlier Acti-.n Ex-
pected in Mackin Caje.
Louis Meyser of this city, was ex
amined in the circuit court this morn
ing by Judge (Jest on an application
for contempt of couri proceedings !o
cause he had failed to comply wi'h a
decree of the court to pay $4.00 a v eek
alimony to his wife, Mrs. Mary Meyser
since June 22, 190tJ. Mr. Meyser ob
jected to paying the amount according
to the decree of the court on the
ground that at the time his wife insti
tuted the divorce proceedings she was
not a resident of this state, but of
Iowa. Just (lest held that this objec
tion was not good in contempt pro
ceedings, though it might be a good
defense on the final hearing, or before
the court had entered an order for
alimony, and said that had this point
been brought to his attention when the
decree was made, he would have con
sidered it. He took the application

It is undcrstooel that during the
week the contestants in the Mackin
will case, which was closed last week
in the circuit court by a verdict in the
contestants favor, will file a motion
for a judgment on the verdict. It is
understood that before the motion for
a judgment is entered, the proponents
will file a motion fer a new trial, and
this motion is now being prepared. In
case the motion for a new trial is not
allowed by the court, it is expected
that the case will be appealed to the
February term of the supreme court,
so that a decision may be secured by
I)irr-t lo Supreme Court.
The case does not come within th!
jurisdiction tt tne appellate court on

braska lands and the Leland farm are
in question, and the litigation is not
confined to money considerations
alone. Had the case been one that
should be appealed to the appellate
court, a decision would not bo possible
before next October.
