Mobile, Ala., June 18.—Following the
alleged assault on Director Hartwell of
the local Southern league club by Ducky
Holmes during the executive session of
the club, announcement was made that
George Rohe, former member of the Chi-
cago Whits Sox, had succeeded Holmes
Boston—Following Manager Hugh
Duffy's mysterious visit to Boston, it was
intimated here Tuesday that Pitcher
Clcotte and Shortstop Wagner are the
men sought by the Chicago White Sox.
The trade is only a bare possibility,
however, and as far as can be learned
'it is even doubtful as to whether Duffy
really went to Boston for the purpose of
closing a deal with the Red Sox.
Rock Island.—The Rock Island Base-
ball association has decided to continue
in the Three I league for the season
An amount sufficient to relieve the club
has been raised by popular subscription.
