More Than Year.

Attempt to Amend Constitution in
Favor of Longer Term Foiled
by Lack of Two-Thirds.
New York, Deo. 15. Thomas J.
Lynch was reelected president of the
National league for a term of one year
yesterday. His acceptance belied re
ports that he would not take such a
contract. An effort was made so to
change the constitution that a presi
dent might be elected for more than
cne year. To do so required an affirm
ative vote of six of the eight members.
On the proposition the vote stood to
B, the "insurgents'' defeating it. They
were, as usual Charles "W. Murphy of
Chicago, Charles II. Ebbetts of Brook
lyn and Horace Fogel of Philadelphia.
But when the proposal had been de
feated. Murphy himself nominate'!
Lynch for president and the nomina
tion was carried unanimously.
The National league appointed a
committee to confer with the Ameri
can league on conflicting Sunday dates
with the minor leagues, particularly in

their three votes, again won a victory

WAR ON "LA SAM A RITA INE."
New York. Dec. 15. A strong pro
test against further performances by
Mme. Bernhardt of Rostand's play,
"I. a Samaritaine." in which the figure
of Chrift is made a speaking charac
ter, has been made to Mayor Gaynor
by Edward Fecney. president of the
American Federation of Catholic So
cieties. Mr. Feeney's communication
was answered by the mayor, who
promised to fee what steps, if any. the
municipal authorities might take to
prevent repetitions of the perform
ance. When told of the protest, YV. F.
Conner. Mme. Bernhardt's manager,
TiiM'fciaiti'Vi'in" i 'iMrtiiiiriaBi
said he could not understand any ob
jection to the drama. It has frequent
ly been acted in France, he said, to
audiences composed of Catholic priests
and during holy week, when it was
looked upon as a sort of religious fes
tival. In Chicago, Mr. Conner said,
the play had received the endorsement
of the clergy. In his letter to the
mayor Mr. Fecney asks: "What kind
of men control the stage in New York
that they should consent to play such
a blasphemous representation before
an audience? I maintain that this is
still a Christian community."
RECEIVER FOR "SHERRY."
New York, Dec. 13. In the belief
that he has not been receiving his full
share of the profits of "Mine. Sherry,"
the musical comedy now running in
the New Amsterdam . theatre, New
York, Cyrus S. Simon, an attorney with
offices in the Ashland block, has ap
plied to the New York supreme court
for an accounting and a receiver. Mr.
Simon's partners in the enterprise are
George V. I.ederer. former manager
of the Colonial theatre, Al II. Woods
and H. H. Frazee. According to At
torney Simons he brought about the
partnership at a time when Lederer
needed backing to star Una Abar
hanel in "Mme. Sherry," and in pay
ment of his services was given a per
centage interest. Simons received a
check covering his share of the profits
for the Chicago run, but though the
business in New York has been phe
nomenal his returns have grown small
er from week to week. That's why he
wants an accounting.
WILLIE HOPPE IS MARRIED
Billiard Champion Wedded in Balti
more to Miss Alice Wnl-h.
Baltimore, Md., Dec. 15. Willie Hop
pe, the billiard expert, was married
yesterday afternoon at the cathedral
to Miss Alice Walsh, only daughter of
Thomas Walsh, a wealthy clothing
manufacturer of New York. The cere
money was performed by Rev. P. C.
Gavan. chancellor of the archdiocese
of Baltimore. The marriage was the
culmination of an elopement, it being
bitterly opposed, it is said, by the fath
er of the bride. The couple came to
this city from New York, accompanied
by Miss May Maxwell, an intimate
friend of Miss Walsh, and Hoppe's
manager-. B. L. Mank. A Baltimore
friend was the only other witness to
the ceremony. A necessary prelimin
ary to a marriage undr such condi
tions being the assent of the pastor of
the bride, this was obtained from New
York by lon; distance telephone.
The first meeting of Hoppe and Miss
Walsh is said to have taken place
three years ago at Atlantic City, when
the yemng lady's life was saved by the
man to whom stv is wedded.
