Toothing In the shape of tangles that
the Three-Eye league has been involv
ed in has approached the muddle into
which the magnates precipitated them
selves upon the opening of the ad
journed meeting at the Palmer house
at noon today. Wrangling was begun
at the very start and It kept up till
adjournment for a conference about
FOIR AGAT5ST FOIR.
On every proposition the vote stood
four .against four, the north and south
standing solidly against each other.
At the time a recess was taken no
vote had been taken on the principal
motion, which was on the question of
declaring the contract of the Waterloo
club with the league terminated.
President Tearney steadily ruled
for the eouthern end of the league.
Time after time he was driven into a
parliamentary corner by the northern
delegates and appeal after appeal was
taken from the decisions of the chair.
Often Tearney. becoming confused
over parliamentary rules, appealed to

Springfield, 111., Jan. 26. The first
bill aimed at the regulation of the
speed of automobiles was introduced in
the senate yesterday by Senator Bailey
The bill proposes to regulate the
speed and operation of all automobiles,
motorcycles, and other motor vehicles
upon public highways. Within the
municipal limits of cities and villages
the speed maximum is -fixed at eight
miles an hour. Outside the municipal
limits the Bpeed maximum is 20
miles under any .circumstances.
RIGHT TO HALF ROAD.
A new feature of the speed regulat
ing bills is the provision that motors
have the right to one-half the road
and other vehicles must grant that
half, but upon signal from a non-auto
vehicle the auto must(slow down to six
miles an hour or stop.
To drive motors while intoxicated Is

The last paragraph is the most im

the revision of tariff by the democratic
party. The term "gradual reductions"
