THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY. JULY 20, 1911.
BY UMP GUTHRIE
Bank Decisions Favor Commo
dores and They Win Third
Game of Series, 6 to 3.
KINSELLA AS A WITNESS
Three Slab Men Work for the In
landers, Hughes, Woods and
Quincy at Rock Island.
Waterloo at Danville.
Davenport at Peoria.
Decatur at Dubuque.
Aided considerably by the rank de
cisions of Umpire Guthrie. Decatur
took the deciding game of the ser
ies yesterday afternoon at Island
City Dark by a 8 to 3 score. True
it is that the visitors lambasted the
ball and earned their runs but the j
Islanders lambasted the pill about j
as hard and but for those decisions
would have come mighty close to
winning from the visiting aggrega
tion. As it was they secured only
half as many runs but others were
nipped in the bud by Guthrie's de
risions. HIGHES KNOCKED OCT.
Three slabmen worked for Rock
Island. Hughes began for the locals
but lasted only five innings. In two
of those five Innings hits were bunch-
d off his slants and the game was
practically lost before Woods was J
sent in to try to pull the game out;
of the fire. Then in the last of the ;
eighth, though Woods was Pitching-
good ball, he waa taken out and Bill
Jacobsen was 6ent in to bat for him,
Couchman finished the game and the
visitors finished by chasing a run
across in the ninth, on a pair of
doubles by Smith and Johnson, the
hitting kids of the Commie team.
Schroeder was on the mound for
the Commies and he went the limit
though he as no puzzle for the lo-
als. Time after time he was in bad
nolfK and Clynes and Slattery. who
oiiRht to be depended upon to dlivf-r
hits at almost any period, perished
on sickly efforts to put the hall past
th inflHd. Thpn, too. decisions time
after time on bases were costly to
ti0 locals and that sort of took what
li'tle Kinger there was in the teatr!
out of it.

NOTES OF THE GAME
Ladies' day tomorrow.

out of the lot. i
Some of the fans have learned ,
within the last few days why some j
of the Islanders are playing poor j
Kfi'orts by (.-Dynes and Slattery on ;
two or three occasions when hits'
would have meant runs were sickly
; The pest. Guthrie, sought to j
j square things by giving Rock Island'
the benefit of unfair rulings when :
tliey didn't count. S
Hick Smith had a trio of doubles
and Hickory Johnson had a pair of
'them. The combination was too;
much for the Islanders. j
Dick Kinsella sat between M H. ;
I Sexton and K. O. Van Galder. Not;
; a blow was struck. On the contrary,
they appeared as happy as thfee
j Lige Wooley certainly does . loom j
i up better each day. Yesterday he
had four good clean singles out of
rive attempts. The fifth attempt was
a line drive which Maguire was for
tunate enough to pull down.
Vogel fielded a pretty good game
yesterday and had but one bobbin
in 1 1 chances. That w-as on a throw
after hard stop. Guthrie called
the man out and then after the team
was leaving the field decided to
change his decision.
The indicator man changed a cou
ple of decisions near the last of the
game w hen he had no right to do j
so. If he starts out to retract all I
of the bum decls'ona he made during'
the season he will have enough real
work for a week. Once or twice he
, , . .
was still in the air, but he knew
that the decision would not prove
costly before he made them. j
Callahan is some good short stop.
He fields his position well and fast
aud covers lots of ground. Yester-
day when Collins and he were run-!
ning after a fly ball, he stopped to '
let Collins take it. but
stopped a second later.

It is a little discouraging, if not ir
ritating. to witness players who but a
short while back complained of alleged
severe discipline by Manager Bill
Carney, saying they could not play for
him because he was too strict and un
gentlemanly in his treatment of them,
now outrageously abusing and taklnp
advantage of the leniency and extreme
kindness of Manager John Gond'u.
One of the chief reasons why Tb
Argus regretted sincerely to see Walter
Queisser go was because of the earn
estness and loyalty which character
ized his work and bis evident desire
to do his best, winning or losing, in
every game of the Islander in which
he played. He is a gentleman h-jCi
