Shortstop Joe Ward, who was tuken bak into the baseball fold by the national commis rion Monday, and hoye purchase from Altoona by the New York Americans for $2,000 lias -been a pproverli ami con cluded, is here demanding; one-third of the purchase money, alleging tiiat the Attiona management promised that part of any sum received by his sale. The Altoona management denies that such a contract exists. Ward says lie wilt notify National Secretary Farrell FINANCIAL AND DROP IN N. Y. C. Nerves of Speculators Receive New Shock Rally in Trading. New York, Jan. 6. The s'tock mar ket had apparently disposed of the dis turbing effect of the coliapse in Con solidated Gas before the day's session at the stock exchange had proceeded far. This factor had not more than rlost Its influence when a drop in New York Central gave a fresh start to the nerves, of speculative holders of stocks. The reaction in New York Central was based, like that in Consolidated Gas, on previous excessive speculation, al though not carried to such length as had been that in the gas stock, nor was the news which caused the specu lators to feel misgivings so definite or so abrupt as that offered by the su preme court decision in the gas case. The unfavorable intluence of New Y'ork Central's priea emanated from the board room of the directors of the com pany, where the action in electing W. C. Brown president of the railroad was interpreted as belying; the supposition that E. H. Harriman was to assume an active place on tile directory and place a man xif his own choice in the man agement of the system. The inference drawn from the result of the New York Central decision of a presi'lcn; that the latest r,nd most con spicuous of the many conjectures re garding Mr. lTarrimnn was mistaken was not relished by the speculative contingent. Heavy liquidation was re newed when the break in New York Central occurred. Ir is not certain that influential liquidation was entirely sus pended nt any tim- during the day, but it was disguised during the early part of the session, owing to the large de mand from the short interest which met it. The bears had sold freely nn account of the collapse in Consolidat ed Gas. and when that stock showed signs today of having touched bottom a large short interest remained td be covered. This was especially notable in American -Smelting, and the buoyant rise in that stock gave assurance of relief from one of the most serious of recently disturbing factors. The Col orado anjl Southern stocks were the center of another demonstration on the strength of rumors concerning the terms to be offered to holders of the preferred stocksby the alleged inten tion of the Chicago. Burlington and Quincv authorities. The whole market was quite Impressively strong at one period, but prices quickly melted away with the renew al of the liquidation late in the day. There were some quarters of the list where the rise in prices has been most marked, where the effort to take profits (ieveloprd a practical with drawal oi support fo.- prices recently in evidence. The effect of speculative sentiment was diquieting and gave additional impulse to the selling. Trad ing ended with a. rally in progress which owned much, palpably, to hasty covering- of shorts. The day's net changes In many prominent stocks are small in consequence.

BASEBALL MEETINGS OVER. All Differences Settled Sexton of I nree I Succeeds Powers as Presi dent of American Association. Cincinnati, Jan. 6. The three days' session of the national baseball com mission closed this afternoon when the national association of minor leagur.s a sreed to follow in the footsteps of Ui-? class A clubs and allow the commis sion to settle the differences between the two factions regarding the. terri torial rights of the Kastcrn league an l the American association. As- soon as this conclusion was reached every dif ference that existed when the confer ences began on Monday had passed away and the complete report of the commission will be issued within the next few days. The commission also brought up "the price of tickets to world's championship games and fixed the maximum price at $2 and the min imum at 50 cents. This does away with the $3 seit that were sold at the recent series. The commission discussed the chances of bettering conditions nnioux the "outlaws" on the Pacific coast and after a talk wilh J. C,Ewing of the Pacific Coast league decided to post pone any action until the next com mission meeting, which was set for Feb. 16 at Ciiicaso. At that time both the National and the American leagues will aluo meet in Chicago. The national association of minor leagues held a meeting today and af ter accepting the resignation of Pres ident P. T. Powers and Director O'Brien, president of the American as sociation, it elected M. H. Sexton of the Three I league to succeed Powers as president of the organization and Ir. F. C. Carson, president of the Cen tral league, as a director of the na tional association board to succeed Jlr. OTrien. All of the visiting baseball managers and owners departed tonight for iheir homes.

''., November and December 8.64 Clarke Griffith, the new manager of the Cincinnati National league club, thinks Lajoie is a hard luck man ager. "He has had more tban his Share of hard luck," says (Griffith. "Cleveland would have won the pen nant the last two years if it had had anything like an even break in luck. Just think of having a team the last four or five jQars that was always picked to win the pennant by the winter dopesters. That is usually the case, but you did not notice Larry making any predictions. I always feared Cleveland, it was mighty dan gerous at the start of the season. When the outlook was rosy, one or two star players would be injured, and after that the team would be broken up repeatedly with accident!, to his good men. i-Jut Liirry clung steadily to the grind and never gave up. "Look at my chances last spring, but my team bleiv up. Larry started the season without the services of Flick, and then accidents happened to Turner and other men. Yet the Naps were only beaten out by half a game for the pennant. That was due to pluck anil lighting all time time. They always say that Lajoie is no manager and cannot handle his men. Well, by this time 1 believe critics will give him credit for some things he has done. One of the greatest stunts was the development otopening and Bir mingham, and I tlTiiik that they are two stars right now. Do yon want me to tell you the greatest trouble with the Cleveland club?- It is the lack of fight shown by some of the players, although I must admit Un certainly made a gritty finish. 'Now, say. had they shown that same spirit all season, why. they would have just jogged under the wire. 'It took I-ajoie some time to in stil that fighting spirit, but when once in the players they could not be stop ped. That is why I look for Cleveland to be in the race for the pennant in 1909. for the players will know how to fight and also keep their tempers. Let them go into every game with that never die spirit and you will se a club called Cleveland run away with the rag." v t, A. A. U. Lifts Suspensions. New York. Jan. 6. What proved to be a tempest in a teapot in amateur athletic circles was stilled tonight when the registration board of the A. A. V. lifted the ban of suspension for alleged -'professionalism which ten day.; ago it placed upon six prominent ath letes, four of whoin won international and Olympic honors. The men who thus again are eligible to compete as amateurs are J. J. Lee of Boston, un attached: F. G. Bellars, New York A. C, and M. Vt. Sheopard. Charles J. Bacon. George V. BonhnS; and H. F. Porter, I. A. A. C. The charges of professionalism laid against the men were covered by an allegation that they don.anded ami ac cepted money for traveling' and otiie' expenses. to cities outside of New Yoii: in excess of what was necessary. At .1 hearing the accused athletes presented evidence to the contrary. Demarest Defeats New Yorker. New York, Jan. 8. Calvin Demarest of Chicago played tonight against K1 ward XI. -Lauarhlin, a local professional billiardist. They played 18.2 balk line and the young Chicagoan won, 250 to 48. In an earlier game Demarest de feated M. D. Brown, a prominent ama teur of Brooklyn, 250 to 98. BASEBALL NOTES. Mike Mowrey is now quoted as anx ious to get away from Cincinnati. The Chicago Nationals have signed James jsavidge. third baseman of the Allentown Atlantic league team. Charley Householder, a famous all around player of twenty years ago, died at his home in Harrisbing on Christmas day. Perry Werden holds a peculiar posi tion in baseball. lie is official coach and assistant manager of the Indian apolis club. Billy Dyer of Yorrester. a one-time ball player on the Norwich team and now third baseman for Atlanta, has been seriously ill at his home with grip. McCafferty, who pitched for Toron to in ID'bi and for Newark in 1907. and was out of the game last year on ac count of an injury, has signed with In dianapolis. Tommy Dowd has had a good record as a minor league manager. He lpd Holyoke to 'a championship in 1906 and landed the Hartford team a close sec ond last year. Mary Blanche Ritchter. daughter of Francis C. Ritchter, editor of Sporting Life, was married on Wednesday last to Robert C. Ledig at St. Stephen's church. Philadelphia. Out in Indianapolis they are wonder ing what they will do without Owen Bush at . short. He set such a high standard of play that they fear no one can fill his place. Brooklyn has signed a young pitcher named Jesse Ryer.-on of Freeport. L. I. He is credited w ith having a "Buck Ewing- arm." It will probably take him years to prove it. Fromme, the nitcher secured by Cin cinnati in the Bresriahan three-coruer-ed deal, is reported to have rolled a 300 score against the big pins at Quiney, III., the other night in a match game. Cincinnati's new college pitcher, Tom Cantw-ell, hails from Winchester, Va., and will not be of age until next year. He weighs 200 pounds and is 6 1-2 feet high. He is now taking- a post-graduate course at Georgetown university. s Napoleon Lajoie says: "Nothing- in the story that Cleveland will let Flick go to Washington. Wo 'have no deal on with Cantillon and do not expect to have any transaction with him. Flick will be with us. and, I hope, will show his old time form. He could not stand the Washington climate in summer time, and we would rot ask him to go there. Cleveland suits him and he suits us." WHAT THE PAPERS SAY. S What Does It Mean? The victory of Judge K. S. Banks over Judge William J. Malone for the speakership of the general assembly is indicative of more than the eclipse of the Fairfield county ministers as work ers in the political vineyard.
