For the second time In two days,
the Islanders and Prodigals battled
against each other at Davenport with
the score tied until Umpire Eckman
got hungry and decided to call the
game on account of darkness. That'6
the way the third game of the series
with Davenport ended yesterday
leaving the score at the end cf the
12th inning 3 and 3. Frank Lakaff
Bid the-twirllng for Rock Island and
except In three innings he was all
the candy. Nelson, on the other
hand, had It on the Islanders except
In the third Inning, and although
they hit him at times, he managed
to keep the safe pokes scattered out
bo that no runs resulted. The drop
ping cf a line drive gave Davenport
a chance in the fifth inning to tie
the s ore. and after that the Prodi
gals succeeded In keeping the Is
land 2rs away from the plate, al
though they could not get near it
j Hovr the Scores Cub. .
The Islanders scored all three of
their tallies in the third inning. Vo
gel opened the round, but was chas
ed to the bench when he expressed
a difference of opinion with the um
pire as to the fairness of a strike
which was called on him and which.
Incidentally, was about a foot inside
of the plate which is commonly used
by umpires to determine which
throws are strikes and which are
not. The umps brooked no objec
tions to his views and Otto had to
take to the tall timber. Jim Davey i
took his place and started something
by getting a walk to first. Lakaff
fouled to the catcher, but the lat
ter evened up by a bad throw to
first, enabling Jim to go to second.
Then Freddie Ochs, on w"hose hard
luck in placing drives we extended
a little sympathy yesterday, located
one safely in right field and Davey
made the first score of the game.
Manusch followed with an infield hit
which put Ochs on third, and after
stealing second he scored with Ochs
on Callahan's nice drive to left.
O'Leary followed with a long drive
to Geyer and Callahan got the sig
nals twisted and went to third be
fore he found it was not a hit, and
a double play resulted. The Island
ers best chance to win the game af
ter this came in the ninth round
when Callahan hit safely and reach
ed second with no one down. He
died there, however, as O'Leary, Kel
ly and Slattery failed to advance
Many Are Walked,
In the. third inning Hickman and
Coveney walked. Nelson was acredit
ed with a hit as .the result of Davey 's
failure to cover first on a bunt, and
then the umps allowed Ohland to am
ble, forcing Hickman. Hllley struck
out and Eddie Kohl retired the side
by a brilliant piece of fielding, some
thing about as classy as he pulled
off Thursday when he practically
prevented the game from going into
the lost column, with the bases full
he. jumped Into the air and grabbed
a liner off Geyer's bat, using his bare
hand, and then threw to second and
made a double play.
The other two scores of the Prod
Igals came In the fifth inning. With
one down, Ohland singled, as did
Hilley, and there was a man on
third and jone on first. They pulled
off a successful double -steal and;
Ohland scored. Then Geyer lined
one to Davey and Jim dropped It and
barely picked it op In time to get
Geyer at first. Had he held on a
double play would have resulted, as
Hilley had gone to third.
' Irby followed with a timely bingle
and tied the count and it remained
there until the 12th, when the game
was called. The score:

NOTES OF THE GAME
Three games and only one shows
in the percentage column.
Callahan was there with the wil
low, with three nice clean hits. Cal's
fielding and' batting promise to be
features of tho Islanders play.
The Islanders haven't located that
hitting streak that they exhibited
earlier in the season, but they have
it alright and It will get to working
The base running signals worked
miserably yesterday. Two doubles were
made as a result of runners chasing
wildly for home on fly balls that
were easily caught.
Another feature of the game was
Kohl's handling of throws to second
base. Dan was pegging low and to
one side, but Eddie scooped every
thing and never failed to touch his
Davey could have won the game
in the fifth inning with a double play
retiring the 6lde with one run and
leaving the score 3 to 2 where it
would have been at the end of the
ninth, but he fell down on the job.
Eddie Kohl 'iad a busy day at
short with a dozen chances. The
error charged against him Was really
an error on the umpire as Eddie s
throw, while a little wide,. gave Slat
tery a chance to touch the runner
instead of the bag and Slats made
the most of it. Umps couldn't see
With Vogel on second, Dan's peg In
the fifth Inning would have been
turned back before It got anywhere
near the bag and . the runner home
would have been Intercepted. Davey
was not on to the game, however, and
he let the ball go back to Kohl and
the result was a double steal.
Jennings Want Kieinow.
Hugbey Jennings, it is said, wants
4 get Jack Kieinow from New York.
What Jennings wants to do with the
veteran Is not apparent. Still, Jack
ought to have a lot of good baseball
left at that.
Arguing With Umps a Wast of Time.
Ball players who bother their beads
about the decisions of umpires belong
to the "solid Ivory'' class.
SHOT TO PIECES
Condition of Danville Ball Team
According to Decatur
PLAYERS WANT TO GET OUT
Childs Says They Begged Dim to
Purchase Them from McCarthy
Doc Seeks Old Berth.
Hopes of Decatur of getting back
into the Three-Eye leasue are already
getting a boost as a result of the show
ing made by Danville. The Decatur
'Reports from Danville say the team
is divided into two factions, each of
which is continually fighting the other.
The showing made in the opening
games against Bloomington was decid
edly poor and the fans have organized
a 'Knockers' club and they go out t
the park each afternoon prepared to
roast any member of the team whom
. Decatur May Succeed.
"It looks mighty gloomy for Dan
ville, and-it is extremely probable that
Decatur will succeed that town in the
Three-Bye league before the close of
the season. The attendance over there
Is poor and the club is not expected to
keep its head above water very long.
If Danville should drop out, Decatur
will be the only logical successor to
tho Three-Eye vacancy.
"Most of the old Commodores are
anxious to get back to Decatur arain.
Otto Burns, Boucher and one or two
mora of them have won places ln the
hearts of the Danville fans but Coombs,
Loomis, Duffy, Benz, Foster and others
would like to get back to that dear
old CommievIUe. Benz and Loomis
almost begged Cliilds to buy them from
Danville. Loomis promised to pur
chare his relense outright If Decatur
would sign him."

matter of moving the booms up from
the canal and the clubhouse back
acrosa the railroad tracks to Its orig

partly arranged for, but nothing defi

James Koff to the position of keeper

proved by the members. Guy Reagan
was empowered by the club to take

railway for hauling out boats. The
material for this was secured last year,

TRAINS FOR MILL
Public Interested in the Manner
in Which Jack Johnson
BOXES 12 ROUNDS DAILY
Negro Encourages Rough Work from
Sparring Partners Is Really
' His Own Trainer.
By TOMMY CLARK.
Jack Johnson's adhereuts are breath
ing easy now that the colored cham
pion has begun earnest training for his
mill with Jeffries at Ocean Beach, near
San Francisco. Johnson has outlined
a schedule which be intends to follow
strictly from now on until a week or
so before the. big fight. According to
the colored champion, it wfll be all
work at his camp. Johnson has de
clared that he has a real respect for
the routine training formalities and
that he will not prepare In the haphaz
ard fashion that bids fair to charac
terize Camp Jeffries at Rowardennan.
Johnson Is a stickler for doing one
thine at a certain hour each day. On
the other hand, Jeffries, while working
hard and faithfully, follows a plan that
allows him to do practically what he
feels like. The wisdom of the dally
sameness of Johnson's plan or the
wide range In Jeffries' work will not
be known until Independence day.
Johnson's progr--. provides for a dal
ly rising time of 6 o'clock He then
dons spike shoes and runs or walks ten
miles over the roads as a starter, ac
companied by two trainers. Then
come the rubbers, who work over the
nejrro whil the morning meal Is be
ing prepared. At 7:20 o'clock break
fast will be served.
Having enjoyed his possum and bev
erage, which Incidentally is not serv
ed in a bucket, Johnson tests the coun
ty's automobile speed laws. A spin
around San Francisco in a motorcar
is calculated to aid the digestion of the
doy's first meal. A visit to the gym
nasium is billed for 10 o'clock. Here
the usual bag punching, shadow box
ing, medlriue ball drill and other
stunts are enacted. A rest follows,
and tbeu Johnson assaults the midday
efforts if M' -onk.s.

followed by the real work of the day.
At 3 o'clock Johnson begins boxing.
The negro boxes twelve rounds daily.
These bouts are the real article with
out the posing of the vaudeville stage.
Rough work is encouraged. Another
spin in the ever ready automobile, sup
per and an orchestral entertainment
by the camp's talent completes the
routine. At 10 o'clock Johnson is tuck
ed away ln his little crib.
' Tom Flanagan, the old trainer of
pedestrians, bicycle riders and fighters,
is conditioning him. While Flanagan
has charge of his road work, the color
ed champion has made it clear that
"Jack Johnson" will be his trainer.
Joe Rogers, the wrestler. Is helping
him train." Rogers, who commonly la
known as the American Apollo, is one
of the biggest men ln the country. He
weighs close to 800 pounds and Is fair
ly active for his weight. Besides being
a good mat artist, Rogers can go a
few with the gloves, and Johnson be
lieves the big fellow will do him a lot

William Hnnter, Islander rights
fielder, returned to the fold last night
with the welcome news that his moth

way to recovery and that there was
nothing further to prevent him from
playing. While Ochs, who took Hun
ter's place in the three games Just fin
ished in Davenport,, played excellent
ball, nevertheless. Hunter will add ma
terially to the strength of the cham
