"The bridge bas been open and free
during Mr. Gent's whole period of con
gressional service." says the Union. Mr.
Oeat baa been in congress about four
years and the bridge was made free to the
people less than a year ago. after Mr.
Oest had done everything in his power to
keep it closed against tbero! And it is
only a few weeks ago that the Union was
offering excuses for Mr. Gest because be
attempted to keep the bridge closed.
What can that paper think of the intelli
gence of its readers? It has arrived at
that stage that it does not consider itself
responsible for anything it says? The
public long ago knew its irresponsibility,
now the Union itself admits the truth of
the people's belief.
The protectionist leaders should try
and "get together" on the relation of du
ties to prices, says the New York World.
President Ilarrison and Mr. McKioley
have envelghed throughout the west
against 'cheapness," and insisted that
high prices mean high wages and general
prosperity. And now Speaker Reed pro
claims that "the present high prices are
not the rrault nf thn tariff " r,r if n,s.

' are, that "high prices will lead ultimately
to low prices." The speaker thus affirms
that the tariff law bas not produced the
result which its author declares to have

and be adds that it will ultimately pro
duce an effect which the president and
Mr. McKinley abhor namely, cheapness
of necessaries. Is it not a beautiful
Thi Union beads an article, "The Peo
ple'a Fight Gest as Their Champion,
Against the Monopoly Power." Truly it
Is the people's fight. They are fighting
tit a chance to live as against the na
tional Iniquity as set forth in the McKin
ley robbery bill. They are fighting
against a system of taxation in which
there Is neither right, nor reason, no jus
tice, nor equity, nor the shadow of any
kind of fairness as between the people
snd the few robber millionaire manufac
turersof the east. They are fighting
against the effects of a bill which Mr.
Gest voted for to take money from the
people's pocket and put It Into the pock
ets of people who are not in want, but
who use it for the purposes of extravagant
living and to buy legislators in Wash
ington and elsewhere In order to have
such bills passed. And yet the Union had
the barefaced impudence to speak of
Oest as the people's champion against the
monopoly powers Oest who bad so re
cently given his vote that this same mos
nopoly power should still further fatten
upon what they wring from the striving,

New York, Oct. 23. -The base ball
'war" will go on if the proceedings of yes
terday in the conference of the three great
aggregations Is any criterion; and it it
doea the players belonging to Brother
hood clubs will be responsible, because
they insist on having their representa
tives admitted to the conference. As tbia
would give the Brotherhood six members
to each of tbeotber aggregation's three,
that is one reason why the latter will not
consent to the arrangement. Tha confer
ence met yesterday afternoon with all the
original members of the committee pres
ent and A lieu Thurman, of Columbus,
A Hitch la the Proceeding.
But in addition three other men pre
sented themselves. John M. Ward, Ar
thur Irwin, and Ed Hanlon all players,
member of the Brotherhood of pi avers.
When Thurman noticed these interlopers
he refused to call the meeting to onler
until they had retired. He said be was
chairman of a committee of nine, not
twelve. Johnson, the Brotherhood mag
nate, then explained that he had been in
structed to ask aix representatives for his
combination, on the ground that the three
League and three Association men would
unite against the Brotherhood. After a
hot discussion it was determined not to
consider the above request until the three
additional men had retired, and they filed
Denied the Request.
The conference then came to order and
the Brotherhood request was read. John
son moved that it be granted, and the
vote was aix to three in the negative, and
the three Brotherhood members with
drew from the conference. They were
quite emphatic in their statements that
the conference was at an end, for they
would not confer unless the players were
given a hearing. The conference then
s'ljoumed subject to the call of the presi
dent. Still Hoping for a Compromise.
Chances for an immediate conference
seem to be dead, but peace proceedings
are by no meana over. It is the general
opinion that it Ib only a question of time
before the conference will be held. The
National League men are firm, however,
in their purpose not to confer with play
er. Representative players said last even
lug that they would takit no action until
they receive some word from the National
Letgue. Negotiations will now proceed
quietly, and it is believed that some satis

President A. G, Spalding paid that he
objected to the admission of the three
players into thn conference. lie said that
he recalled to the minds of Johnson. Tal

informed the National League men upon
the former joii t meeting that they had
full power to act. and the League had
gone into the conference upon the under
standing that the question of a compro
mise should be settled between the mag
nates of both organizations. The players
were in the room a!out fifteen minutes,
during wliieh time Ward and bis col
leagues made their plea for representa

invested in the game as well as we." The

was continued, with power to act.
