National League Club Owners
Will Take Up Schedule at
Meeting This Morning.
NEW YORK, Fob.. 9.-Although tho
principal business for which thc Na
tional League duh owners niel bera
today was to ratify and adopt the
playing dates for tho coining season,
the matter was laid over until to
morrow. The schedule will hi* taken
up immediately after the meeting re
convenes in tlie forenoon.
.At the session of the board of di
rectors which preceded the regular
meeting today President Tener an
nounced thal he had uppointed as
umpires H. I).. Emslie, William J.
Klein. Mal Eason, William Byron. E.
C. QuUrley, Wi Ilium Hart and Al Orth.
Qfc'jrge Coekill, recently manager of
the Harrisburg club of the Trl-State
league, was appointed as a substitute
umprie. There ls still a vacancy on
?he regular staff, however, as Charles
Bigler has not been signed so far.
Secretary John A. Heydler said no
application for a position had been re
delved from Henry O'Day.
Instead of revoking the edict that
no playr? be seAt into truining cutups
by any club before March 1 each year,
this was made a hard and fast rule
and read int .1 the constitution. Similar
action was taken as tc the revision of
the player limit from 25 lo 21 adopted
at the December meeting. The New
York duh representatives tried to
hnvo tho limit raised to 22. but this
was voted down. In addition, all
player-managers who participate in
one or more game? during the season
are t j be included in the player limit
of 21. which will he the maximum
from May 1 to September 1( each year.
Chairman Herrmann, o? thc com
mittee, submitted un amendment pro
viding that there shall be no recall
after a waiver has been asked on a
player, lt will be discussed tomorrow
and probably will bc adopted.
A letter was received from the In
ternational League asking for per
mission to place a club in the Bronx
ooiougn. oj mis city; itt no uctlon
was taken in the matter.
Every club in tho league was rep
resented at the meeting.
Managers Uresnahnn of Chicago;
Moran of Philadelphia; Herzog of Cin
cinnati and Hugguins of St. Louis held
several consultations while the meet
ing was going JU. Humors of trades
2nd exchanges were thick, but 110
names were mentioned and nothing
definite materialized. Manager Mc
Graw of the local club, 1B due herc to
night from his Cuban trip and it ia
expected that tho 'exchange market
will take on a lively tone when these
Ave get t pether tomorrow.
President Gaffney of the Boston
club, stated today that as Manager
Stallings ls detained through illness
it his home in Hsddock. Ga., the
selection of Boston playera to com

General Gregory hos notified all Unit

not intend to sit idly by and permit
federal judges to suspend Indefinitely
either the imposition or execution of

In a circular letter to his assistants.
Mr. Gregory pointed out that thc prac
tice of indefinite suspension of sen
tence has long prevailed in many
"No court has such a power. It ls
in effect a pardon or commutation.
Nor may a court exorcise lt indirect
ly, by a continuance of the case from
term for sentence or by other similar
This custom bas been the cause of
complaint, and has tended to some
what discredit the administration of
the criminal law in the federal, courts,
"In the future you will protest
against and qbject, to any motions or
requests fer such suspension order,
and report the making of the order
to this department. ' that it may take
thc necessary step to compel the Is
suance of commitment upon any such
"Because this involves an attack
upon a practice heretofore tolerated,
proper courtesy to the judicial officer
requires that he be advised In ad
vance that the department finds it
necessary in future to oppose these
orderB. .You will kindly convoy this
information to each judge of your dlsr
tr let and at tho same time offer,
should any judge doubt this limita
tion of his judicial power, to furnish
reference to decision relating 'thereto
-which reference the department' nt
your request will furnish."
