NOTES OF THE GAME.

the .Davenport left-hand batters who
are credited with being the star
slickers of the team. Not one of
them in the two games thus far
played has managed to hit the ball
squarely enough to send it into right
field, where a hard hit ball from a
left hand batter would naturally go.
All of their hits have been scratched
off the end of the bat and they either

"Manusch's base running is rapidly
becoming one . of, the . many features
of the Islanders' play. He covers
ground in' remarkable manner and,
best of all;-he knows just when to run.
Two stolen bases in an airtight game
like yesterday's bodes well for the future.
, Speaking of gentlemanly ball play

worthy trio did their best to set the
crowd after Manager Tighe, Shaffer
coming out of the players' box plainly
for that" purpose, They made faces
at him, hooted at him and did their
best to get the crowd to follow their
lead. The Rock Island chief bore him
self very becomingly under such treat
ment and showed his contempt for
such practices by refusing to notice It,

!A doctor's first question when con
sulted by a patient is, "Are your
bowels regular?" He knows that 9S
per cent of illness is attended with
inactive bowels and torpid liver. This
condition poisons the system with
waste matter and causes accumula
tion of gases which must be remov
ed through the bowels before health
can be restored.
Salts, ordinary pills and cathartics
may be truly likened to dynamite.
Through their harsh, irritating ac
tion they force a passage through the
bowels, causing pain and damage to
the delicate intestinal structure
which weakens the whole system, and
at best only produces temporary re
lief. The repeated use of such treat
ments causes chronic irritation of
- the stomach and bowels, dries and
hardens their tissues, deadens their
nerves, stiffens their muscles and
generally brings about an injurious
habit which sometimes has almost if
not fatal results.
We have a pleasant and safe remJ
edy. for constipation and bowel dis
orders in general. We are so cer
tain of its great curative value that
we promise to return the purchaser's
money in every case where it fails
to produce entire satisfaction. This
remedy is called Rexall Orderlies.
We urge you to try them at our en
Rexall Orderlies are eaten Jike

soothing, strengthening, healing, reg

cause nausea, flatulence, excessive
looseness, diarhoea or. other annoy
ing effects and they may be taken at
any time without inconvenience.
Rexall Orderlies overcome the

constipation and associate ailments,
whether acute or chronic, except in
surgical cases. They are especially
good for children, weak persons or

Sacramento, CaL, May ' 6. In re
sponse . to scores of letters received
at the governor's office since the death
of Tommy McCarthy following hU
fight with Owen Moran in San Fran
cisco last Friday night, urging that
Governor Glllett stop the Jeffries-John
son mill on July 4, B. "Forrest Mitchell,
executive secretary to the governor,
sent out answers ' yesterday saying
that the state executive is powerless
The statement by Mitchell, . which
officially outlines' the governor's atti
"Gentlemen This office is in receipt
of your letter enclosing resolutions by
the Ministerial union relative to sup
pressing the Jeffries-Johnson prize
fight or contest, July 4, 1910.
"Governor Gillett is en route to
Washington and probably will not re
turn to Sacramento for a month.
Lieutenant and Acting Governor Por
ter will not be in this office for a week
or 10 days.
"Replying to your letter in their ab
sence, permit me to say the governor
is not in favor of prize fights, that he
never has attended one in his life
and says he never will. However,
under the laws of California, I believe
he is helpless to prevent of suppress
this so-called boxing contest, because
the law allows such contests If the
necessary permit ha3 been granted by
the local authorities. In this instance
understand this permit has been
"I would suggest you file your com
plaint with the district attorney of
Alameda county, and if this is a prize
fight and not a boxinsj contest, he has
the right to put a stop to it. In all
probability, however, the local authori
ties will be seriously handicapped un
til such time as the law is amended
by the state legislature sj the distinc
tion is clearly shown between a prize,
fight and a so-called boxing contest.
I have the honor to be, dear sir, your3
faithfully, Er F. MITCHELL,

NO WORD FROM HUNTER
Ft Is Believed Though That His
" Mother Has Died.
Although no ward has been received
from Outfielder William Hunter of the
Islanders since he left, here Sunday
night,alled back to his home in Buffa
lo "by the illness of his mother, it Is
thought that tie latter has died.
Harry Kelley this morning received
a letter from his wife, who is living
near the Hunter family, and from tne
tone of the letter it seems that Mrs.
Hunter has passed away. If thi3 is
the case. Hunter will probably be back
tomorrow or Sunday and his presence
will greatly strengthen the team. In
the meantime he has the sympathy of
the entire team and the followers of
the game in this city.
