side the Two Towdh in the tin-tfrprUe-Talk
The Twin-City base ball team from
present appearances is destined to be more
of a success than was at first anticipated.
Judging from the article In a Davenport
paper a few days go an l from what can
be learned from converse tions with citi
zens of that place, our sinter city will take
hq active interest in the game on this side.
a the grounds on the Columbian site
which it is thought will t e secured, will
be of easy access to people coming from
that side of the river. Negotiations are
dow in progress and a meeting of
the original twin-ci:y committee will
be held early next week to com
plete the arrangement so that work
can be begun on putting the grounds in
shape for practice. The work of signing
players has been actively entered upon,
and will be finished as soon as possible.so
that the team can be gotten together as
soon as the grounds are in shape
for practice. From reports that
are coming in from all over the country,
it is thought that base ball will take an
other spurt this summer.
Avery active interett is being manis
tested in all sections of the country and
especially in the minor leagues. Games
will probably be well patronized here this
year as it will be the on'y league team in
this section, and especially as some ot
our own local baseballists will be in the
game. Aurora and Burlington have
come into the fold, and from present in
dications some strong teams will be
placed in the field, and while we're speak
ing of it the Twin City's will be among

Toe Directors or the Modrrn Wood

Koek lalaod liaat Xtcht'a Reeep
The directors of the Jiodern Woodmen
of America, after putting in the after
noon sight-seeing in Rock Island and
Mo'.ice and vicinity, having been pro
vided with a special electric train on the
syndicate lines, dintd at the home of.
Capt. II. C. Clcaveland, and last evening
were tendered a public reception at the
Harper, which was largely attended by
the members of the order in Rock Island,
their families and friei ds. B'.euer's or
chestra discoursed mus e at intervals, and
the affair proved erjoyable in the highest
sense. Everything partaking of the na
ture of formalities was abandoned, and
sociability proved the order of the occa
sion. This morning the directors accom
panied by Bead Clcik II awes left for
Springfield where they are to be enter
tained by the camps of Sangamon county.
in conversation will an Argus repre
sentative last evening, the directors all
expressed themselves as highly pleased
with Rock Island, their visit having
strengthened previous favorable impres
sions of the city. The directors are all
genial gentlemen, and as heretofore
stated, are prcminent in their professions
aad in politics. It is seldom that an
crder has the good fortune to find its af
fairs in the hands of so intelligent a body
ot men. Would that their visits could be
more frequent to Ruck Island. Indeed,
let us hope that at no far distant date
thev may come nere ctncialiv as well as
socially, at regular in' ervala.
But Oh. how mrrvrent ilie Xext
A weekly paper in a recent issue took
it upon itself to regulate the morals of the
conmunitv and incidentally went for
Ctiief of Police Miller in a rough-shod
m inner, at the same .ime going out of
its way to say "it do :s seem that Tub
Argus might have spared a little of the
energy it displayed in protecting the pub
lic against questionable hot tomalleys
and said a few words more in protest
aztiinst our citizens' greatest disgrace
the disorderly saloons " In view of the
events of the j ast .week, acd
the altogether different view
in which the aforesaid weekly paper talks
of the matter in its second issue. Tee
A rocs is somewhat constrained to say
that its crusade has proved in a marked
degree different frorr that to which the
weekly journal devo h itself that "it
still has a little er ergy to spare," and
that if the aforesaid weekly will send its
office boy around be' ween this and the
time of its next issue he will be provided
with all that is necessary accompanied
by a guarantee that if applied as direc
ted it will be attended by the best result 1
to be hoped for.
Meanwhile it may be expected Chief
Miller and his men v ill partake of the
tempting morsel in the way of game
which came today from a newspaper
establishment from which might naturally
be expected a more toothsome bird, but
which, from the manner in which it is
being relished by the police, would be re
garded as coming from the barnyard
species of the biped tribe rather than that
usually driven out of the cornfields.
