A VETERAN DRUGGIST TELLS FACTS ABOUT PERUNA. Mr. L. A. Richardson, Marine, Illinois, writes: "I have been en gaged in the retail drug business here for the past forty years. During this time I have seen many patent medicines come into use, flourish for one or two years and then gradually disappear. There are very few of these remedies that possess enough real merit to insure them long life. "Peruna has always been a good seller with us, with a marked in crease from year to year. The change in the formula some years ago, by the addition of the slightly laxative properties, has made it a re liable remedy for constipation and for colds. If taken hourly in tea spoonful doses by adults it will break up the worst cold in two or three days' time. I take pleasure in urging my brother druggists to recom mend it for these two ailments." Mr. Richardson's credit rating in the Hayes" Druggists' Directory is "A," which means high, the very best. Those who object to liquid medicines can now procure Peruna Tablets. JAKE'S JUNK. With the characteristic gall of Pa Rourke, the sport writers of the Omaha Bee and World-Herald, discuss West ern League affairs and point out that the "smaller" towns of the circuit op pose the proposition to adopt a daily guarantee of $125 for this season, no matter what the gate receipts amount to And Sandy Griswold kicks in with the remarks that there are too many leagues and clubs. These writers are only repeating the remarks of la Rourke. The fact of the matter is that Omaha is just about as poor as any town on the circuit. The fans of the Nebraska metropolis are tiring of the regime of Rourke and demonstrate the fact by staying away from the games. Pa Rourke was a welcome magnate in Omaha for a time but his crabbed disposition and method of running a baseball club does not meet with the approval of the sport loving public. These same people realize that it would be useless to attempt to tell Rourke how to run his business so they stay at home, or at least away from the games, and allow Pa to run things to suit himself. The population of Omaha is about three times greater than that of Topeka, Sioux City, Lin coln or . Wichita but the turnstiles do not click in proportion. These four towns cannot afford to pay the visiting club $125 per day and neither can Omaha nor St. Joseph. The $125 per day plan also is opposed by a majority of the club owners of the circuit for the reason that they be lieve the plan was not suggested in good faith; because they are convinced by club owners who havev entered a campaign of rule or ruin and would be almost willing to endanger the life of the circuit when they realize that they are no longer in control of the circuit. More than that, Hugh Jones, of Lincoln, is said to be sure that Holland and Rourke do not favor the guarantee but believes they have been talking merely to gain notoriety. The constitution and bylaws of the Western League positively forbid any alteration in the division of gate re ceipts unless with the un animous consent of the eight clubs. It is a certainty that Holland and Rourke get nothing when the unani mous vote is required. McGill has gone east to attend the big meeting which is being held in New York. Before leav ing he gave his proxy to Hugh Jones and is reported to have instructed the Lincoln manager to vote "no" on any proposal offered by Holland or Rourke. The figures show that the Denver club would profit most from a $125 guaran tee but McGill is intent upon being against the scheme for two reasons: He realizes that such a rule would be dis astrous to some of the weaker clubs, and he has so little respect for the opinion of the two czars that he will cast aside personal consideration to throw the hooks into their plans. The Denver News gives out the in formation that Jimmie McGill, of the Denver club, will start out after a world's record that of winning four OUCH! MY BACK!

The following is from the Denver sheet which quotes McGill: "I feel confident that with any kind of luck in securing pitchers Denver will establish a world's record by winning four pennants in succession, something that has never been don j in the his tory of organized baseball." Of course the whole statement hinges upon that clause "with any kind of luck in securing pitchers" and of course also, there will be those who will scoff at the idea that McGill act ually wants another championship team when he has already had three in a row. But the bare fact is that McGill made that statement in 1911, made it in 1912, made it in 1913, each time with more people scoffing and each time he had the last laugh. For our own part we are ready to ac cept it as proof positive that Denver will again be represented by a wallop ing, fast baseball nine, and we are ready to have our friends around the circuit copy. That isn't all that McGill has to say. He doesn't make the fiat statement and let it go at that. Instead he gives rea sons for his belief which are best set forth exactly as he writes them. He opens as follows: "I want to Impress one thing on your mind and that is I sure have my hands full with two ball clubs. I have been on the jump every minute and I feel sure that I can make a success out of both of them if my health will only hold up. "As you no doubt know, we have ap pointed Coffey as manager of the Den ver club for this year, and in making this selection I believe we have picked the logical man for the position. "I gave this thing considerable thought before I came to any decision, and before appointing him I practically signed up the whole ball club with the exception of the pitchers. "We have at the present time signed Spahr, Block, Fisher, Anderson, French, Coffey, Faye, Butcher and Schreiber, and that is more contracts and a better ball club than we have ever had on the first day of February since I have been in baseball. "French, whom I have seen in the past two weeks, assures me that his leg is all right and he will be back in his old position again." POCKET BILLIARDS.

EVERS RELEASED C. W. Murphy of Chicago Na tionals Deposes Manager. Report of the Event Demoral izes Baseball Meeting. HAM O'DAY TOES HIS PLAGE National Commission to Con sider Murphy's Action. Federals Make Orertures Won't Play With Chicago. New Tork, Feb. 11. The disposal of Johnny Evers as manager of the Chi cago Nationals by C. W. Murphy.own er of the club, for the moment has side tracked the important consideration that has brought so many baseball men to the city, the menace of the Federal League. The national commission mem bers Ban Johnson, August Herrmann and John K. Tener were apparently so much perturbed at the news coming as it does, at so critical a time in base ball affairs, that they met and infor mally discussed the matter late last night. No public statement was made after the meeting but it is known Evers will go before the commission in the next day or two with his con tracts. Governor Tener, president of the Na tional League, said he would study the contracts held by Evers and that the player-manager would get Justice. President Murphy of the Chicago club, said that he had nothing to add to his statement given out in Chicago con cerning his deposal of Evers and sign ing of Hank O'Day, one time manager of the Cincinnati club, to take Evers' place. The mission of President Gil more and his associates of the Federal League today remained as much of a mystery as when they left Chicago on Monday. President Gilmore says it is a pleasure trip. The Federal Leaguers are keeping to themselves and mean while the ruling officers of t.he major league are planning a campaign to prevent invasion of their territory by the new organization. Aemrican League Schedule. The American League officers met to day to adopt a playing schedule for 1914. The opening dates will probably coincide very nearly with those an nounced yesterday by the National League, which call for initial contests on April 14, with the closing of the season on October 7. Dismissal a Great Surprise. Chicago, Feb. 11. The discharge of Johnny Evers yesterday as manager of the Chicago National League team and the appointment of Henry O'Day to succeed him, while almost as great a surprise as the dismissal of Frank Chance in 1912, had been planned for some time. This became known today when baseball writers recalled an in terview with President C. Murphy last week in which Evers was criticised. The interview was not published, ; although Murphy still had a grievance against Evers because he thought him personally responsible for the loss of the city series last fall, none suspected that Evers was to be deposed. Last Friday Murphy asserted Evers' bad judgment had enabled the White Sox to defeat the Cubs in the series of 1913. It Is known by those who were in touch with Cub affairs last season that Murphy had several controver sies with his manager and it was be lieved that only the success of the Cubs for the last six weeks or two months of the season prevented the discharge of Evers at the end or even before the close of the season. Long before the season was over, Evers confided to some of his friends that he was manager in name only because he dared make no move of any con sequence without the sanction of Mur phy. During the fall Evers lived in Chi cago and gave most of his time to the Cubs. Then the Federal League be came active In December and was suc cessful in signing Vaughn, Leach, Phelan, Pierce and perhaps two or three others. While he was on trips, O'Day the new manager was employed by Murphy to go to Chattanooga to sign Johhny Johnstone, the young outfielder. Two of his former team mates who now manage Federal Thiamin teams. Joe Tinker, of Chicago, and Mordecal Brown of St- Louis will bid for Evers if he becomes a free agent. Brown already has made mm an offer. Evers has expressed a desire to play again with Frank Chance his old manager, but the latter is bound by baseball etiquette not to discuss a situation like this. Tinker last night received a message from Charles Weeghman, owner of the Chicago Federals, who is in New York with President J. A. Gilmore to hold him self in readiness to start east today. Should it be found that Evers' con tract has been violated these three will be on the ground to negotiate with the deposed manager. Evers in Interview. New York, Feb. 11. "I will never play for Murphy again under any con ditions," John J. Evers, deposed man ager of the Chicago National League team, declared when the news that he had been dropped as manager to be succeeded by Henry O'Day, became known at the uptown hotel where the National League's scheduled meeting was in progress. , . , "I have been approached by the Fed erals and have held conferences with some of them, but I would rather be with the 'old boys," " he added. This was accepted by everyone as a reference to Frank Chance and imme diately there were rumors of Evers coming over to the New York Ameri cans who are much in need of a second baseman, Rollie Zeider, groomed by Chance for that position, having de serted to the Federals. The Chicago club's announcement of its change of management came as a startling close to a day devoted chiefly to speculation as to what the National League club owners would do in ref erence to the invasion of organized baseball by the Federals and threw all the other developments of the meeting into the shadow. Before any announcement regarding the change reached the league's i temporary headquarters from Cni- ! cago, the big crowd of expectant followers of the game, who thronged the corridors of the hotel, was thrown into a mild panic when Evers himself announced he was through as manager j of the Chicago Nationals. ! At first the statement was taken as a "Joke" but when Evers continued to tell of his many tilts with President Murphy since the Chicago city series last year, it dawned on those who heard him that a serious and unexpected break had occurred, livers was bitter In his comment on the happenings that led up to his depo sition. He said that immediately after the city series last fall between the Chicago Americans and Nationals had been, won by the former. Murphy found fault with him for being in the Com pany of Jimmy Callanan. " 'Why do you go around with the opposition?' Murphy asked," Evers de clared. " 'You've lost $50,000 for me by losing the series.' "I replied by asking him how much did he think I made for him in 1909 when Merkle forgot to touch second? When he said "probably 1200,000,' I said, 'well, that's more than even up.' "December 27 we bad another run in but we patched it up again. I went Out anrl MentA un flVA nlawm t asked Murphy to draw up a contract equitable to both the club and myself so that I could not be discharged in ten minutes. He promised to meet me a week from the following Saturday but telephoned my wife on that day ma.i iie coura not meet us, and since then we have not come to n- ment." The terms of Evers' contract with the club as manager and player could not be ascertained, but Evers had a brief talk with Governor Tener and the new president of the National League told him: "Do not act hastily. I have not seen your contract, but I assure you, you can deoend unon lntjra yi - uciug UUUC you when I take up this matter." Mordecal Brown Wants Evers St -Louis.

Murphy, president of the club, in favor of Henry O'Day, former manager of Cincinnati. Chance, who was succeeded as man ager of the Chicago club by Evers, would not discuss the subject further. Commission Calls Evers. New York, Feb. 11. The National baseball commission went into secret conference here late last night. No announcement was made as to what was being discussed, but it was learn ed at midnight that the committee had ordered Johnny Evers to appear be fore it with a copy of his contracts with the Chicago National League club. Evers earlier had been deposed as man ager of the Cubs. RECEIVED BY POPE. Comlskey Accompanies Athletes to Vatican for Apostolic Benediction. Rome, Feb. 11. Charles A. Com iskey, president of the Chicago club of the American baseball team was well enough today to go with the members of the American baseball team to the Vatican where the party was received by the pope. Dr. John Edward Jones, American consul at Genoa, who has attended Mr. Comls key during his illness accompanied the party, which comprised seventy peo ple. The American visitors were in troduced to his holinehs by Monsignor Chas. A. oHern, vice rector of the American college m Rome who ex plained the national Interest taken In baseball in the United States. The pope greeted the visitors with great cordiality. He thanked them for their visit and in a short address praised the practice of athletic sports for the strengthening of the body and at the same time the practice of re ligion to strengthen the soul. He then imparted to all the apostolic benedic tion. The members of the team were then photographed in the court of San Damaso. Cardinal Merry Del Val, papal secretary of state afterward re ceived the visitors. No game was played today owing to bad weather. Immediately after the audience at the Vatican Mr. Comiskey went with Dr. Jones and Professor Giuseppe Bas tianelli to a medical institute where he was examined by Professor Ulderico de Luca with the aid of the X-ray. FEAR BASEBALL. Italian Authorities Won't Permit Play, Fearing Roughness. Rome, Feb. 11. The unfamiliarity of Italians with baseball was demon strated Tuesday by the refusal of the authorities to permit an exhibition game between the New York team of the National League and the Chicago team of the American League, without first being convinced that it is not a "brutal game." After the points of the game were explained the authorities still insisted that a net be erected within the sta dium to protect the spectators. Even when promises were given that this precaution would be taken, permis sion was withheld until today at noon when a few innings will be played for the benefit of the authorities who desire to judge for themselves what manner of game the American nation al pastime is. Arrangements have been made for an audience with the pope today, but on account of the action of the civic authorities, some of the players will have to forego this honor. A regu lar game at the stadium is on the pro gram for this afternoon. They Want a Woman Chief. Pittsburg, Feb. 11.
