FACE TO FACE
Playing his first season in the Three
Eye league, the present head of the
team has won a reputation as a dia
mond strategist of no mean order and
one who never gives up hope nor stops
Manager of the Islanders.
fighting f:ir victory till the last man is
out. He has been playing ball
for 11 years. His greatest tri
umphs were scored in the east, the
winning of two pennouts in the Con
necticut league attracting the attention
of the Rock Island association. The Is
landers, under his leadership, have held
their own against other teams that will
show a considerably higher batting av
erage than thev. In fact, it may be
staled Rock Island has played the most
consistent ball of any team in
Three-Eye this season, and though now
in fourth place, still has a good chance
to win the pennant.
Manager Tighe was born in Scran
ton, Pa., May !.", 1ST.". He started on
his baseball career in lS'.i:: at Scran
ton, Pa., his home town, which was i:i
the Pennsylvania State league. 1 1-
played wiih the Scranton te:iui one
season and then went to Poitsville,
Pa., in the same league and played th-3
season of IS'.il. In lsnr. ho was bought
from the Pottsviile club, by the Ro
chester club where he played until the
season of IMiO, when he was sold .
Portland. Me., in the New England
league. A couple of years later he
was sold to Du'mKiue. After Dubuque
flunked he returned to the east ami
signed with the New Bedford team.
Up until this season he played in the
Connecticut league and for two sea
sons won the pennant. He played
with the Worcester club in the Con
necticut league part of the season, his
team winning 22 straight games.
TWO NEW MEN FOR
Austin, First Sacker, and O'Mara, Out
fielder From East Report to
President Spencer, through a scout
who has been out for the last week
has secured for the Rock Island teat.i
a new firstbascman and a new out
fielder. Austin, the new first sacker
comes from the Hudson River league,
he having played with Poughkeepsi-?
last season. His hilling average was
.273, which ranked among the best.
His fielding for the seasrn was .970.
He was at one time in the Connecticut
league and is well acquainted with
Manager Tighe. O'Mara the outfielder
is not so well known. The two men
arrived last, evening and reported to
Manager Tighe on his return with the
team this morning. Tighe says he will
put Austin in at once, but will see what
O'Mara can do before starling him.
Another pitcher is expected to join
the team at once. Negotiations are
also said to hi? on for an outfielder a
Manager Tighe attributes the loss
of at least three games on the road
to inexperienced work in the out
field, notwithstanding the fact that
three of his best pitchers are
suffering with sore arms, which was a
great handicap throughout- the ser
ies in general. Tighe said to
day that he was surprised to find that
Murphy had not improved his chance
to get into condition during the club's
absence, and intimated very strongly
tiiat the left fielder would be cut loose
if not ready to get back in the game at
c.nce and play ball.

Home for Their Last Stand
Against Southern Rivals for
CRIPPLES ARE IMPROVING
Manager Tighe Still Full of Confidence
and With Proper Support Team
Will Still Make Good Race.
The Islanders returned today froii
their somewhat disastrous trip to the
south to meet Springfield at home.
While the boys have been losing pret
ty steadily they have never stoppel
fighting, as those who were with the
team at various places since tiiey left
home are ready to testify. No team
ever worked harder to hold its plac-3
than Rock Island has done.
There are several good reasons whv
a belter showing was not made. In ad
dition to the disability of some of the
most important players the work o
the umpires was without question pre
judicial to an extent, particularly at
Decatur. The pitching staff has been
in a bad way and it has been nece.-i-sary
to alternate Scott and Howa-d
daily for some lime. Wilson and Lun-
dm have been in poor condition an J
Neal unable to play. Manager Tigl.r
has himself been and is still suffering
with a bruised elbow sustained at
Springfield, and O'Leary was forced to
remain on the bench the second div
at Decatur from an injury of the same
IIiiIiIn Dinner Mill fiooil.
Therefore, all things considered, the
showing made ni;iv be considered
fair one. Manager Tighe is still full
I of confidence and believes Rock Island
, , ..... ,
iias i hinui 1-ii.iiii-u ui win i ne miming.
The three pitchers whose loss has ben
so keenly felt are getting in form again
and with the new material t hat has
been obtained to act as a bracer the
Islanders ought to mow them down
wi'h their accustomed regularity fro-1
this time on.
The part the rooters take will ho
most important, li is loo late now fo:
knocking to do anything hut harm. The
die is cast and the enthusiasts should
live up to the town's reputation for
being game, Give the team the glad
hand and give Tighe a glad hand. En
courage the players, win or lose, ami
we will make llie ot Hers go some yt
to carrv off the ribbon.
FROM THE DOPE BOX.
It has been reported that the White
Sox have secured Pitcher Charlie
Adams of Denver.,
Springfield arrived last night for the
series beginning today and are qua
tered at the Harper house.
So far Dubuque has had an attend

management took charge of the team.
George Nulton, who played first base
for Rock Island 15 years ago is visit
ing in the city. He is now making his
home at Chicago.
Get out. rooters, and back up the
Islanders in the hard struggles thev
are now beguiling with the southern
teams. Slav with the boys to the last.
Knocking can do only harm at this
stage of the race.

Suspicions in Minds of Some
as to Genuineness.
Walter Freeman, the 15-year-old lad
who has been setting record mark; for
swimming the liver from the Davei
portide to this side Hie last few days,
lowered his record of 11 minutes and 5
seconds to 13 minutes and 47 seconds
last evening before a crowd of about
l.uiil) piMiple assembled at the landing.
The start was made at Brady street
Davenport at 7:3u and the boy landed
a few feet below the Milwaukee depo:
on this side, a drop of about 2iiu yards.
The last 75 years of the swim, in sight
of the spectators, was remarkably fa-sc.
he being uiged on by bis comrades on
the shore. The young man was ac
companied by two boats in which were
about S men. some of whom carriel
stop watches. The start from the Dav
enport side was announced by the Ig
nition of red lights. A number of tha
spectators of the feat can hardly be
lieve that the young man made this
time, and say that he should make it
in day light when he can be seen from
either side of the river.
