New York, Oct. GO. At the anmnl
meeting of the National- Association of
Professional Baseball Leagues in this
city yesterday nothing was accom
plished indicating a contemplated
breach with the two major leagues.
After two or three addresses, the sec
retary's report and the appointment
of a couple of committees, the meet
ing was adjourned until today, pre
sumably for the purpo.se of discussiun
among the warring factions with the
Idva of getting them together on dis
President Powers announced that
the association was in excellent shape
and that the season had been success
ful, lie referred to the rumors of the
formation of a third major league, but
stated that the national oilicers had
no intimation of such a plan anil he
did not believe there was anything
, I'uHlaiii Talk.
Harry Pulliam, president of the Na
tional league, who was present by in
vitation, made a brief speech in which
lie said he did not approve of the
players in the major leagues playing
in California after the close of the
regular eastern season, and stated that
National league cUibs had been notified
that their players must not be allowed
to do so. Players on National league
teams who were now playing with the
c lubs of the California league, which I
is not in the national agreement, and
not to be confused with the Pacific
Coast league, had been notified to
sever their connection with the Cali
fornia league immediately, on penalty
of being declared outlaws. He said
he was opposed to the farming )f
players and the drafting by major
league clubs of so many men from
minor league clubs.
Referring to the rumor of the forma
tion of a new major league, he said
that if the flag of disloyalty to the
National association w-as raised, the
loyal leagues would be found solid1;,
arrayed against it and any such effort
would Le fought to a finish.

Lovers of football, who used to wit
ness the struggles of evenly matched
teams on tha Moline Athletic fiell
when the rivalry between the two Mo
line teams was at its height, may once
more see a contest where all the de
sirable features of those games will
be repeated but the bitter feeling and
consequent brutal play will be elim
inated. The Rock Island Independents
and the Moline West Ends will nlav
for the championship of the tri-cities
next Sunday at Athletic park in Mo
line and the fact that the teams are
so evenly matcneu and the rivalry i
keen insures a good contest between
these two aggregations. Great inter

by the supporters of both teams and
by the citizens of both Rock Island and
Moline, who take a partisan interest in
Although the Wert Ends were de
feated early in the reason by the East
Ends, the team is still in the running
for the championship by reason of hav-
ng a new lineup and one which is far
better than the one which met the
East Ends. The defeat of the East
Ends at the hands of the Independents
also gives the West Ends a chance t i
claim superiority over the other Molino
team by winning from Rock Island,
'I'm in n Composed of Start.
Both teams feel confident of victory
and there seems to be little choice bo
tweeu them as both arc composed of
former stars of both cities. Rock Is
land has a number of old high school
players and the other players are men
of years experience in independen
football. Moline has strengthened its
lineup by the addition of such playe-s
