election of a manager from a champion

of the league, was virtually completed

Huston, the new owners of the Yan
kees. They left here late today after
completing negotiations with B. B.
Johnson, president of the league, tha't

It was intimated at the league head
quarters that only signatures were
needed to make the documents of the
sale complete. Attempts to get any
kind of an official announcement to
this effect met with refusal. Neither
was there any definite word as to the
identity of the new manager and play

From other sources it was learned
that "Wild Bill" Donovan, former De
triot pitcher and last season manager
of the Providence International league
team, was chosen leader.
Players intvolved were thought to be
Rehg, Boston; High and Pipp, Detroit,

ably will be transferred for moderate
cash considerations, and Donovan will
lie given a chance to figure on trades
for other men after he takes over the

Just tuck a small chew of "Right-Cut"
away. Let it rest easy and enjoy the
taste as it comes along nice and steady.
It's cut fine and short shred, so you
get all the good of it without having to
break in your chew.
Take a very small chew-less than one-quarter the
old size. It will be more satisfying than a mouthful
of ordinary tobacco. Just nibble on it until you find
the strength chew that suits you. Tpc.k it away.
Then let it rest. See how easily and evenly the real
tobacco taste comes, how it satisfies without grinding, hlwv
much less you have to spit, how few chews you take to
be tobacco satisfied. That's why it is The Real Tobacco
Chkw. That's why it costs less in the end.
It is a ready chew. cut finae and short shred so that you won't have
to grind on it with your teeth. Grindingt on ordinary candied tobacco
makes you spit too much.
The taste of pure, rich tobacco does not need to be covered up with molasacl sod
lieitori. Notice how the salt brings out the rich tobacco taste in "Right-Cut."
One small chew takes the place of two big
hliews of the old kind.

AN INFORMAL BUNCH
London.-(Correspondence of the
Associated Press.)-A letter from
Warsaw says that in marching Russian
soldiers present an odd picture.
"The Russian regiments on the
march are the most informal organi
zations in the world," it says. "Ahead
ride a few officers, and thne, in no
partcular formation, come the troops,
some on one side of the road and some
on the other. Toward the rear they
straggle off in dwindling streams,
wandering about the fields and plod
ding here and there, just as though
each was off on an individual tour.
"For miles after a regiment has
passed one sees little groups trudging
along, apparently perfectly contented
and without a worry in the world. Yet
at night they all appear for rations,
and in the morning start off again in
a solid formation.
"I am told that this method of
marching has proved a great puzzle to
the German airmen in trying to esti
mate the number of troops that are
moving. When the columns are so
strung out, it is almost impossible from
any height to tell whether what one
sees is a battalion in close formation
or a company strung out. Most armies
march in solid masses which can be
seen and estimated accurately from a
"The more one sees of the individual
of the Russian army the more one
comes to like the common soldier here.
He is the most good-natured, child
like, playful person in the world, and
in the month I have been with the
army I have not seen any disorder. On
the road and in the camp, all seem
contented and happy as long as the
\\eather is fine. It must be admitted
they look a little dismal in the rain.'

RULING IS EXPECTED
ON OPIUM STATUTES
San. Francisco, Dec. 22.-The fate of
60 men convicted in San Francisco
of violating the federal opium act, will
soon be decided by the supreme court
of the United States, which will de
cide shortly the constitutionality of
the act which prohibits the importa
tion of opium. The 60 Californians
were convicted of either smuggling
or having opium in their possession.
The case was put up to the highest
court on the appeal of 14 United States
customs guards convicted some time
ago as members of an alleged opium
smuggling ring in which steamship of
ficials were alleged to have been im
I plicated. Attorneys for the convicted
customs guards contenr! that the fed
eral statute, as it now stands, is an
invasion of the police rights of the
states and is otherwise unconstitu
tional. They attack the validity of
the provisions of the law which fix
the mere possession of contraband
opium as evidence of illegal connivance
in smuggling operations.
Washington, Dec. 2.--A house naval
affairs sub-committee agreed today to
leave out of the coining naval appro

$3,000,000 for a dry-dock over the lo

folk have been contCssting. The bill
as now drawn is said to follow the de
partment's estimates very closely and
it includes an appropriation of $1,000,
!000 for aeronautics.

FOR CHICAGO'S MAIL
Chicago, )Dec. 22.-One hundred and
seventy-five thousand gunnysacks were
ordered to the rescue of desperate
parcel post clerks of this city and con

purchased by Postmaster Campbell for
his own needs and those of other post
masters of this district, who reported
that the supply of reserve mailbags
of the regular pattern was inadequate
to contain the holiday business.
