THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 1910.
Second Baseman Wrigley of St.
Paul Does More Than Rest
of Team Combined.
GIFT TO HIS TEAMMATES
Hand Out Passes Right and Left in
dosing Tnntwg and Takes Vic
tory from Islanders.
It took only one of the members of
the St. Paul team to -win the game
from the Islanders yesterday after
soon. Second Baseman Wrigley was
the one who did it. He slipped it over
Ttghe's recruits in the sixth and sev
enth Innings and his team won the
;contest by a count of 3 to 2.
It might be well to explain that
'Wrigley, although a regular second
eacker, was not in that position yes
terday. On account of the absence of
any umpires he was given the job
holding the indicator and he perform
'ed far better for his team in .that
position than he possibly could have
done at the usual station he occupies.
His scheme for winning the game was
beautiful in its simplicity. He waited
until sure that his teammates could
not get away with it themselves and
then calmly shut his eyes while Read
Pickering was tossing them up and
sent five men to -first base in a row,
forcing two of them over the pan and
winning the game.
Hard On Iilasdrrt,
It was rough on the Islanders, as
they had the game cinched. On ac
count of the cold wind which was
blowing it was decided to shorten the
game to seven Innings and as this
deoision was not arrived at until after
the fifth inning it behooved the visit
ors to get a hustle on them, as they
were (beaten up to That stage by a
score of 2 to . That is when Wrig
ley made himself useful. In the sixth
he passed Jones and gave him second
base after he had been thrown out by
five feet at least. Errors by Kelley
and Davey allowed Jonrsy to cross
the platter before the side could be
retired. Wrlgley's team was still
beaten, however, and as the end waa
drawing near he took no further
chances. Five men in a row were
given passes to first, although Picker
ing was getting the ball over the plate
enough to have at least four of them
struck out. With his team one point
to the good. Wrigley let up and the
side was retired without any further
St. Paul Allowed Tvro Hits.
The Saints from the American as
sociation, winners of two out of three
from the St. Iuis Cardinals before
coming here, were let down with two
hits and they were both by McCor
mick. One of these came in the sec

neither had anything to do with the

Prexy Tearney is congratulating
himself on landing Bobby Carruthers

wrong about him; he always did de-

hand did some nice clean hitting, but
it was not opportune. Hunter opened
with a two-sacker and in the seventh
inning he secured another bingle. and
Vogel, Basset and Quiesser each made
hits. Davey drove out a two-sacker,
but lost credit for it by failing to
touch first base, a fact which Mr.
Wrigley was quick to observe. Inci
dentally a run was made on the hit
and it, too, had to be lost on account
of the failure to touch the sack. It
is probable, however, that had thi
run been added to the Islanders' snore

NOTES OF THE GAME
Nothing doing tratll Sunday. Then
Davenport Is here.
Yesterday's game belonged to the
Islanders and would have made it
two out of three from Class A boys.
Second Baseman Wrigley deserves
the undying gratitude of his team
mates. The high wind which came np in
the tMrd inning blew a cloud of
dnst over the field. Had it "been
in the old days when the diamond
was dusty the game wonld have stop
ped. Several nice catches were made as
a result of the way the wind blew
the ball around. Kelly made two
dandies and Slattery and Jacobsen
each pulled off one.
Lester Basse tt, the Blue Island
recruit, got his first tryout yesterday
and his work looked good to the
fans. He runs the bases well, hits
clean and as far as could be seen
fields in good style.
Davey robbed himself of a hit
and' his team of a score when he fail
ed in the fifth Inning to touch first
base. He had a two sacker easily,
but Mr. Wrigley was taking no
chances and he saw the foot miss the
at Peoria and work in all exhibition
games till the season opens.
Jack McCarthy has the promise of
Mike Flynn, secured by the Philadel
phia Athletics from Little Rock, In
case the player fails to make good. It
is expected that Danville wilr-also
get at least one man each from the
Chicago Cubs and the Indianapolis
fJavenport, after two days of idle
ness, will leave tomorrow to practice
with Iowa City for the balance of the
week. Sunday the team comes home
for the first big doings of the year in
the circuit, the clash of Davenport and
Rock Island which takes place across
Four Three-Eye players bought by
the St. Louis Nationals last season
must go back to the minors. Bark
well, Laudermilk and Cowell, obtained
from Decatur, and Bell, secured from
Springfield, have failed to make good.
Manager Bresnahan indicates more
reluctance in giving up Laudermilk
than any of the others, for Grover
showed everything that a pitcher
should have, excepting a head.
Peoria Star: "Never in my experi
ence in baseball have I seen such a
demonstration during the exhibition
season in a minor league as Peoria
baseball enthusiasts have made to
day," declared President Al Tearney
of the Three-Eye league as he sat ia
a box at Lake View park yesterday
afternoon and saw his first game on a
Pecria diamond, which was played be
fore 4.000 people. President Tearney
paid Peoria his first visit yesterday.
He liked Peoria, and Peorians who
met the new boss of the Three-Eye
league were greatly impressed in re-
return. Mr. Tearney not only was
pleased with the work of the Distillers,
who he predicted will give the top
notchers a race In the Three-Eye
league this season, but he also was
greatly impressed with Lake View
park. He declared triat the home of
the Distillers is the best arranged and
most convenient that he has ever seen
in a minor league and insisted that it
compare favorably with many major
j league parks.

Manager Tighe showed good judg
ment in the sixth inning by not tak
ing Pickering out. He realized that
any other pitcher would be forced to
do the same that Pick was, that is,
force runners over the pan until the
game was won. Mr. Wrigley and
not Pickering was at fault.
Wrigley of the St. Paul team um
pired a particularly fair game up to
the time that Rock Island got ahead,
and then, realizing that his teammates
could do nothing with either Quiesser
or Pickering, he simply handed them
the game. It would never have done
to have taken the edge off of two cut
of three games from the St. Louts
Cardinals by allowing the Saints to
be beaten by a Three-Eye league team,
even if that team does represent this

Message Found in Cherry Mine

MUCH MONEY ON BODIES
St. Paul Coal Company States That
Remains of All Missing Have
Been Accounted for.
Cherry, 111., April 12. "All alive,
2 p. m., Nov. 14." This, the latest
message from the fatal St. Paul coal
mine, was brought to light yesterday
with the recovery of 31 more miners'
bodies which had been entombed
since the disaster of Nov. 13 last.
The bodies were taken from the
lower level. 300 feet under ground.
The men had retreated to a space
20 feet square and had constructed
a rude fan of boards to keep the air
circulating. On the fan in big let
ters were chalked the words quoted.

least until the day after the fire.

Evidently the prisoners had taken
turns at the crank of the fan, for
one of the bodies had fallen over

That the miners were in the habit
of keeping their savings on their
persons was shown by the amount of
money found on the bodies. One
miner had in his belt $1,400. In the
belt of another miner was found
$10 and.another had $172.
These men were foreigners and
evidently carried their money in
their clothing rather than deposit
it in a bank. In the pockets of some
of the men's clothes were found let
ters, but these were too badly blur
red by water to be deciphered.
Long: Survival la Draled.
A report was circulated that evi
dence had been brought to light with
the bodies indicating that the men
had lived for six weeks after they
had been sealed up in the mine and
that they had existed on corn taken
from the mules' stables. Sheriff
Skoglund of 'Bureau county made a
thorough investigation of the report,
examining all the evidence taken
from the men's clothing, and declar
ed it was untrue. He believed the
men had died of black damp, prob
ably a few hours after they had writ
ten the memorandum on the fan.

It was declared by the mine com
pany's officials that all of the 300 or
more miners entombed and killed by

Washington, April 12. Representa

tinued yesterday to defy the insur
gents, whom he pilloried in his speech
at the republican club dinner Satur
day night. Mr. Iongworih says he is
a standpatter, that he glories in it, and
that he doesn't care what his
father-in-law, Theodore Roosevelt,
thinks about it.
"As a matter of fact, does anyone
know what Mr. Roosevelt's idea of
the present situation is?" asked Mr.
Longworth. "Being a son-in-law in this
case and trying to keep in politics is
not all a path of roses. I have a great

Taft Already Has Covered 28,101
Miles and Outdoes Iredeoesors.
Washington, April 12. President
Taft, equipped with $25,000 travel al
lowance b'y congress and the conveni
ences of a Pullman car, has given the
seven-league boots cards and spades
and beaten them for the champion
trarelershlp of the world and the ages.
President Taft has outdone all of
his predecessors in office as a traveler.
He has taken the record of Theodore
Roosevelt, which was a marvel in its
day, and made it look like the poor
try of an amateur.
Since March 4, 1ff0, he has traveled
28,101 miles. He has an engagement
for the latter part of April and the
beginning of May, which will take
him 2.3S0 miles farther on his way
to Buffalo, Pittsburg. Cincinnati, In
dianapolis, St. Ixiiis and return.
After that his engagements are nu
merous. In the nearly 30,000 miles he
has traveled. President Taft has done
great stunts as a speaker. He has
made more speeches than any of his
predecessors in the same time, and
his first year's record is more than
many presidents achieved In four full
years. The Taft record to date, is
:90 speeches. The coming trip to the
middle west will add about 30 more.

Mrs. Edward Van Gltnen, who re

Rock Island, says: "All my life I
have had trouble with my stomach
and for the past seven years it has
been exceptionally bad. My tongue
was coated nearly all the time and
there was hardly a day passed but
what I had a nasty taste in my mouth
together with this unpleasant state
of affairs, I suffered a great deal of
pain in my back and bowels. In fact,
I became so bad I could hardly do

I made up my mind to consult Dr.

I really feel like a new woman. The
