OUTLAWS IN FIELD
Union League of Professional
Baseball Clubs Formed at
THAT CITY AND BROOKLYN IN
Al Lawson, Who Has Piloted the At
lantic League to Success, at the
Head of the Venture.
Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 17. A new
outlaw baseball league was born at the
Iiellevue Stratford here yesterday. It
will be led by Al Lawson, who steered
t'.ie Atlantic league to success last
Philadelphia ia to have a club in
the new league; that's why the meet
ing of the organization was held in
this city, and the other towns of the
circuit will be Brooklyn, Newark,
Paterson, Baltimore, Reading and a
couple more yet to be chosen.
Just where the club that, is to op
pose the Athletics and Phillies for
Quaker City patronage will play has
not yet been decided on. Mr. Lawson
said last night that three or four sites
were in prospect and that, the new
lield would certainly be located in the
heart of a populous section, with
enough fans nearby to assure success
from tho start.
.Nil mod I ii ion l.riicur.
The organization will be known as
the Union League of Professional
Baseball clubs of America. Represen
tatives from the following cities were
present and each was assessed $100
as a working basis for the new league:
A. W. Hussey, Brooklyn; A. Pholetus
Konkle, Newark; Frederick Paige,
Paterson; H. Walter Schlicter, Phila
delphia; Dr. Francis E. King, Balii
tnore; Ed .1. Coyle and A. V. Lawson
Mr. Lawson was elected president
and Dr. King vice president. The
board of directors consists of Mr.
Konkle, Newark; Mr. Paige, Paterson,
and Mr. Hussey, Brooklyn.
Grounds in all the cities above men
tioned have been secured and the
league will be ready for business when
the season opens.
Oiitoiitiir of Atlantic Sit-e-NM.
To some extent the league is the
outgrowth of the success of the At
lantic league. This organization, after
at first making application for protec
tion, took offense when the territorial
rights to "Wilmington and Trenton
were granted to the tri-state league
and decided to go it alone. Having
had a successfnf season, Mr. Lawson
and some of his backers decided to
make the experiment of building up a
stronger circuit. -

SUNDAY'S RECORD AT
MUSCATINE NEW ONE
Sets Mark for Century in N-umber of
Conversions Wins One Out of
' Four of Inhabitants.
The triumph of Billy Sunday, the
evangelist, at Muscatine "was the great
est in his career, the number of con
verts, 3,753, exceeding by more than
500 his best previous effort, tnat at
Kewanee a year ago.. The number of
conversions is. said to te Uic greatest
secured in a century by any revivalist
on American soil: ' As a result of the
Sunday meetings, it has been decided
to form a civic federation to make war
on the saloons. The church member
ship of the city prior to the revival
was 4,000. The proportion of those
professing lhrist is said to be larger
in Miiscatiji than in any other city in
the country. About one out of four inhabitants-
was won over by Sunday's
arguments and pleadings.

who will present Matthew Barry's la

most actresses now before the public.
Her work always pleases, and her per
sonality is magnetic and exceedingly
charming. She is an artist because
she is endowed with the artistic in
stinct and is thoroughly familiar with
all the details of her profession. Her
manager has secured a play in which
she is given the greatest opportunity
for the full display of her splendid
emotional work. From the very open
ing night the play has proved a bril
liant success wherever it has been pre
sented. Critics and public have been
in hearty accord in pronouncing it
among the leading hits of the season.
