Tearney. president of the Tlire"-! league, saloon keeper and former alderman, yesterday lost an appeal f r n m the decision of the Chicago m u n i c i p a l court, f i n i n g him for violations of the 1 o'clock closing ordinance.

CUP ENGRAVED. The pretty little loving cup t h a t Harry Halnes will give the up in the singles at t h e Centra] Illinois t o u r n a m e n t to be held at the Country c)uh, has been received and engraved ready for presentation. Mr. Haines is very anxious to h a v e some Decatur man or two men give two cups for the runners up tn the double? tournament. He has solicited several without results. Tennis devotees are deplorably few in Decatur, or at least those who can a f f o r d to give cups. Entries continue to come In for the tournament which starts Tuesday r.iorning at 9 o'clock. Among those recently received from out of town are two names from Sullivan, Charles Lindsay -and Harry Barber. Two or three other Sullivan men are expected to enter. Up to date the, n u m b e r of Decatur entries is disappointing. Every man who can wield a racket ought to enter. The competition will not be so f a s t but w h a t he will get his money's worth.
