Washington, Oct. 9. The National'
Industrial Conference got Into real
action to-day and made progress to
ll ard solution of the country's cco
jsomlc problems. Though the fur was
made to fly In a somewhat heated
cross flro debate in the morning' ses
sion, the day wound up with a closer
understanding and the delegates
nearer together personally than even
the most optimistic members hoped.
There were many significant moves
made on several sides of the confer
ence chamber, but the-real sensation
of the day was an unexepected propo
sal trom Samuel Gompers for the la
bor group that the confernc appoint
a committee of six, two from each
group, to settle the steel strike. Hp
proposed that pending settlement the

the status quo before the strike that
Is, that all strikers bo urged to return
to work and that all men who woro,

In accordance with the conference (
rule of procedure the resolution vas

Commltteo of Fifteen. Action upon
it must be delayed until the commit
tee reports.
Cfiiry AvoldM Comment.
Elbert II. Gary, when asked about the
resolution, declined to make any com
ment whatsoever on the ground that to
do to would bo a violation of the rule
and spirit of the conference.
The resolution 'as presented would
provide In effect for arbitration of the
trlke bj the conference. Various inter
pretations were placed upon labor's
dove. Mr. Gompers explained that It
vas made in absolute good faith as in-1
dlcathe of the willingness of labor to
rut Its faith In the gathering. Labor
leaders in charge of the strike asserted
nhen If was called that the Issue would
be settled In the mills and Mr. Gary and
' his advisers in the United States Steel
Corporation have taken the position con
sistently that matters in the strike
would be permitted to take their course.
Of course there was (suggestion that
labor was weakening on the strike and
"anted It settled, but It was apparent
that the delegates generally accepted
Mr Gompers's explanation as a sincere
one and the comment was offered that
labor had been willing at any time to
arbitrate the strike.
John D. Rockefeller. Jr., with tho as
snt of the public group, introduced a
resolution that, while It did not mention
the steel strike, may have large stgnifl
lunce in that connection. The resolu
tion proposed In effect that the confer
ence approve the principle of represen
tation of labor In Industry, under which
tmployees shall have an effective voice
in determining their terms of employ
ment and working and living conditions,

Cincinnati (N.I..B S 3 .625
Chicago (A. )....!! 3 3 .375
By a Staff Correspondent of Tnc Sun.
Chicago, Oct. 9. Last year It was
a fable, rivalling an "Esop master
piece. This afternoon It developed In
to a fact Incontrovertible. Only seven
short months, ago It was a dream
wilder than the most optimistic vision
born of hasheesh. But ns the shad
ows lengthened over Comlskey Park
to-day it became a stern reality. The
Cincinnati club of the National League
Ilnally won the, baseball championship
of the world. Vor forty years the
Queen City had been Imagining how
It would feel to attain this pinnacle,
and now that Its hour of .supreme
triumph has corao unfeeling men 'de
clare that nil tilings are possible.
It was a raging, riotous, run thirsty
lo't of Cincinnati players who defeated
tho Chicago Americans for tho fifth
time and brought the title to the Ohio
metropolis.- The scoro was 10 to G.
Twice the Cincinnati men, with the
all conquering victory In their grasp,
had been turned back by the fighting
Whlto Sox. Twice tho Heds, with four
successes to their credit and only one
more game needed to end the scries,
had been forced to retreat, apparently
in utter rout.
Iteda Start Attack Knrly.
This afternoon all the pent up
wrath developed In that doublo dis
appointment was let loose by the Heds.
They .began a terrific attack from tho
first moment of their opening turn at
bat and in Ave innings piled up
enough runs to give them the game.
Thus one of tho most Interesting com
petitions In the history of the world's
series ended with Chicago defeated by
five games to three, marking the first
failure of the American League repre
sentatives of (his city in three fights
for the title.
Though defeated the "White Sox pu
up a brave and game battle ; In spite of
the big lead maintained by the Heds
all the way Interest In the struggle was
maintained, until the very last out had
been made. The White Sox were, not
willlngto let that prize slip from them,
and when they were apparently out of
the running and trailing the Reds so
hopelessly that hundreds of onlookers
left the park as early as the sixth In
ning they made a last bravo bid for the
game. The Sox put over four runs in
the eighth and raised the Chicago hopes
from the dead. But soon the rally was
over. - ,
Chicago still was four runs In the
rear. Then came a tenth tally for Cin
cinnati In the eighth, and It was all
over but for the shouting and the rush
for the exits.
Sox Ilopea Dished In I'lrat.
The hopes of the White Sox got their
death blow In the first Inning. Four
runs were chalked up for 'Cincinnati In
that session, in which every one of tho
Heds got a turn at bat, fivo of them
came through wllh hits, two of which
were two baggers. Like a big, game
boxer with a fighting heart the Chicago
club staggered all over the ring, nut It
would not throw up the sponge. It
played for time to rally Us waning en
ergies, and for a time It succeeded In
keeping the. Heds In check.
Cincinnati got one run .In the second
and a sixth tally in the fifth. Hut In the
sixth Inning the world's champions In
the making let loose their attack with
renewed ferocity. Three more hits raroc
off Hed bludgeons and three more runs
were added to tho Cincinnati total.
Again the staggering hulk which repre-
sentrd Chicago stalled and held through
a round and lu the cghth It staged Its
last lighting rally.
It was tho swan song of a club which
had gone Into the series full of confi
dence which bordered on cockiness
another overwhelming public choice
which had failed in a year replete with
disappointment for sporting favorites.
So to-night Chicago thinks of what
might have been, while Cincinnati has
become famous for another B .
Ileer and baseball, one on the wane
and the other very much on the rise.
10 lilts for Cincinnati.
In all, the Cincinnati attack yielded
sixteen hits, which Included three
doubles, two of them by Uddle noush,
nnd one three base hit. The Heds were
guilty of two errors. Tho White Sox
made ten hits, four of which did not
come until that torrid eighth Inning.
That session saw the arrival of two
of tho three doubles credited to the men
under the command of Kid Gleason.
And, lt we forget, one of the Chi.
cago hits wan a home run, an honest to
goodlier four base smash by Joe Jack
son, which came with nobody on base In
the third Inning and gavo the outfielder!

BOYLE DRAFTED
BY MURPHY FOR
BOROUGHHEAD
Tammany Selects Justice
1 Long in Ranks for Man
. hattan Presidency.
I WAS FRIEND OF M1TC1IEL
Ho "Would Check Hylan-Hcarst
Plans and Bo Mayoralty
. Candidate in 1321.
Justice Hdward F. Boyle of the Mu
nicipal Court, who is chairman of the
fexecutivc Committee of Tammany
Hall, has been selected as the Demo
cratic candidate for President of the
Borough of Manhattan to succeed
Frank L. Dowling, who died ten days
ago.
This decision was reached at n meet
ing of tho executive committee at the
Wigwam In Fourteenth street yester
day afternoon.
It was reported that In asking Jus
tice Boyle to give up a Judgeship,
which has nine years to run nt $8,000
ti year, to become a candidate for an
otllce that pays only $7,500 a year,
some assurances' were given to him
by the leaders that ho might bo the
candidate for Mayor in 1921,
Charles F. Murphy and Justice
Boyle himself, who possibly alone
could confirm this story, refused to
comment on It. It seems a plausible
thing, however, that Tnmmany should
desire to train up a candidate for the
mayoralty nomination two years
hence.
Republican Going? Slowly.
The Republican organization Is still
canvassing the situation with the Idea
of getting the highest type of man
available to run for tho important office,
which carries' with It membership and
two votes In the Board of Estimate.
With the six votes of Mayor Hylan
and Comptroller Craig united for munic,-,
ipal ownership and other schemes for
which William Randolph Hearst stands
It is vital for Tammany Hall that the
two votes of the President of the Bor
ough of Manhattan should be in the
hands of a man who could always be
counted on to play the Tammany rather
than the Hearst game.
The Tammany county committee,
sitting as a borough committee, will
ratify the selection of Justice Boyle at
its October meeting.
Representative Thomas F. Smith, the
first choice of Mr. Murphy and the Inner
circle, told the "Boss"' on Wednesday
night that he would rather not take the
designation. After a careful canvass
of the situation yesterday morning it
was decided that the best strategy would
be found In the selection of Justice
Boyle. Although he was Inclined to de
cline the honor he virtually was.drafted
Mayor MKclirl Cave Him ORlcr,
Justice Boyle is both a lawyer and
a certified public accountant. He has
been In tho service of the city for many
years. For fifteen years he was In the
"oflice of the Commissioner of Accounts
and was chief accountant of that office
when John Purroy Mltchel was Com
missioner of Accounts.
When the late Mayor was elected
President of tho Board of Aldormen on
the fusion "ticket in 1909 he took Mr.
Boyle with him as chief examiner In
that office. When Mr. Mltchel became
Collector of Customs for a short time
Mr. Bojie was appointed chief of the
transit bureau of the Public Service
Commission by Chairman McCall. From
there he became President of the Board
of Elections by the decision of Tammany
Hall.
Still retaining friendly relations With
Mayor IMltchel, Mr. .Boyle was appointed
a City Magistrate by the Mayor In 1917.
Early In 1918 Mayor Hylan elevated him
to the Municipal Court jench to fill a
vacancy and a year ago he was elected
for a full ten year term.
Justice Boyle for some years was
Tammany leader of the old Sixteenth
Assembly District, and upder the redis
ricting has been the leader of the north
end of the Twelfth district, which, is the
'Murphy homo territory.

Tho Allied Tobacco League of
America was organized yesterday In
Cincinnati to promote the interests of
tho tobacco Industry all over the
United States nnd with the avowed
nnd special purpose of waging n mili
tant light against the Women's Chris
tian Temperance Union and Its cam
paign for n constitutional amendment
prohibiting tho growth, salo and use
of tobacco. According to the an
nouncement of the organization of
the league Issued by the Association
Opposed to National Prohibitions, the
league will Include In its membership
growers, leaf dealers, warehouse men,
manufacturers, jobbers nnd retailers
of tobacco products, and bankers and
consumers generally who may be in
terested In "defending their Individual
rights against the activities of nntl
tobacco propagandists everywhere."
W. D. Spalding, president of the
Cincinnati Leaf Tobacco Exchange,
was elected president. Other officers
are: Charles Whltrock, vice-president;
William S. Ooldenberg, secretary;
George K. Engel, treasurer, and Em
met Orr, ofllclal organizer and Held
secretary. D. II. Gale was named sec
retary of n temporary executive com
mittee, which Includes Emmett Orr,
It. E. Dundon ot Louisville, and Dr.
W. A. Gardner ot New York. The
league will be Incorporated under the
laws of Kentucky, the greatest tobac
co growing Stato in tho country, and
tho main oflice will bo In Cincinnati.
Subsidiary headquarters will be estab
lished In rifles nf the North. South.
East and West, probably In Now York,
San Francisco, Detroit and New Or
leans. In announcing the formation of the
new organization and its determination
to fight the W. C. T. U. and prevent
a prohibitory amendment similar to
that obtained by the Anti-Saloon League
the Association Opposed to National
Prohibitions issued the following state
ment: "Unlike the various and multitudinous
efforts made to combat the earlier and
pernicious activities of the Anti-Saloon
League, which efforts wcro fruitless to
prevent the Eighteenth or Prohibition
Amendment, the Allied Tobacco league
of America will profit by the experiences
of others and will ..meet the campaign
for nn anti-tobacco constitutional
amendment on equal grounds and with
full preparedhess. The W. C, T. U., ac
cording to n despatch received to-day
from Oregon, has caused to be filed
with the Secretary of State of that State
ah Initiative petition to make unlawful
the sale, use or possession of cigarettes
In Oregon after January 1, 1921. It will
be given a ballot title. The measure
would tlx the maximum flae for tbe first
offence at $100,1 for the second $200,
and the third and subsequent offences
would be punishable by jail terms ot
thirty days besides the fines. It is
Just such measures as these that the
new Allied Tobacco League will light,
"The XV. C. T. U. Is following the
xact programme of the Anti-Saloon
league in Its earlier campaigns. It will
not at present attempt any legislation
or' ordinances against . tobacco In to
bacco growing States. It will, however,
gq into States like Nebraska, Kansas,
Iowa and Maine, whose people are not
particularly interested In the growth,
manufacture, &c, of tobacco, but in Its
use, and where tho voters will not
awaken to the menace In their midst
until the constitutional amendment
against tobacco arrives."
TEST OF BIG BERTHA

Berlin, Oct. 9. The German long
range cannon was manufactured at Es
sen. There was a great deal of specula
tion In Germany aa to the range, at
which it would have to be fired to" hit
Paris. Artillery experts calculated that
It would carry seventy-five kilometers
(forty-five miles), but powder experts
said the piece would carry a good deal
inrther.
Elaborate preparations were made for
a test. This took place on the artillery
training grounds nt Meppen, with the
muzzlo of the big gun pointing north
towaid East Frlesland, Numerous do
tachmonts of artillery wero stationed at
Intervals In the heathland east of IJmden
to report the location of the shell upon
Impact.
When tho first round was fired, to
ier body's amazement, none of the de
tachments made a report, and for some
time the landing place of the shell re
mained a mystery. Three more rounds
wero fired with the same negative re.
suits, and the experts began to wonder
whether the shells had descended any
where at nil. It was discovered event
ually that all four rounds had burst on
one ot the Frlesland Islands, a dlstanco

Copyright, U19, off rightt reterved.
Pams, Oct. 9. Dr. Serge Voronoff,
formerly .connected with the Rocke
feller Institute and now head of the
physiological laboratories of the Col
lege de France, whose experiments in
grafting surgery have commanded
great attention in the medical and
scientific world, unfolded before the
French. Congress of Surgery yesterday
the results of an amazing series of
experiments designed to restore youth
nnd youthful power to the aged.
So sensational appeared to be the
results that Dr. Voronoff received an
ovation from his colleagues. Vistas of
perpetual youth seemed In -a senso to
bo opened up by. the latest develop
ments of grafting, which made such
strides during the war under men like
Vonoroff nnd Dr. Carrel, the latter
being a closo friend of Dr. Voronoff.
Dr. Vonoroff contends that he has re
stored youthful energy to a man of 80
years, giving him tho vitality and
robustness of a young man, the subject
showing all signs of an Intensified exist
ence, Tho doctor declares ho already
has performed this operation on a num
ber of high French personages.
Demand More Information.
At the session yesterday, because of
the engrossing Interest In tho subject.
Dr. Vonoroff was accorded more time
for his paper than was ever given be
fore In the history ot the institution,
and at the end of his lecturo he was
besieged by a company or savants cry
ing for more Information. '
The experiments he detailed, covering
a course of three years. Involve the
grafting of an Interstlclelle gland of 'a
young male monkey onto an old man In
whom the gland had become atrophied.
The result seemingly was a marvellous
restoration of youth, even the man's
carriage and demeanor changing, ac
cording to the doctor. Old, animals
upon which the experiment was first
tried apparently were restored to youth.
Dr. Voronoff conducted a series of ex
periments at the Rockefeller Institute In
1910. His 'subsequent experiments In
France In this new Held attracted great
attention. In these he was assisted by
hls .wife, who was Evalyn Bostwlck of
New York, who e'erved as a nurse during
the Boer war and In the Sudan, and
also on the western front.
Describing his experiments to Thk
Sun correspondent to-day, Dr. Voronoff
said that If the line of Investigation ho
has opened up Is persisted In It would
have a considerable effect on the future
of humanity In prolonging mental power
and physical vigor of useful men. He
said the laboratory experiments ho had
made could be applied surgically with
almost certain results.
"Before applying this treatment to a
human subject," he said, "I made ex
periments with 120 animals, including
goats, sheep and bullocks. I transferred
the Interstitial gland of the you.ng ani
mal to an old, decrepit one almost on
the verge ot dea'th, nnd out of all the
120 experiments 1 obtained the same
number of positive results.
Tried It First on Monkeys.
The next step was to apply the same
theory to man. This gland, being vltnl
to the male organism, It was naturally
Impossible to transfer from man to man.
This led me to go to the nearest species
of monkeys which has-been used eo
successfully in thyroid experiments.
"Taking an Interstlclelle gland from a
young and vigorous chimpanzee I graft
ed It onto a man 80 years old who was
virtually In a state of decrepitude. After
several months' convalescence the pa
tient showed a complete change. His
shoulders became upright ; he walked
stralghter and seemed to enjoy the phys
ical and mental powers of a man only
30 years old,
"I have continued these experiments
with other men with results that were
astounding. This gland appears to con
tain a chemical secretion like strychnine,
and to a veritable reservoir of energy,
which when placed In tho old extends
life."
Dr, Voronoff was head of the surgical
grafting division of the French army
during the war, and the marvellous re
sults he obtained with French soldiers
are to-day In evidence throughout
France.
WALSH ASSAILS
LEAGUE PLAN IN
RINGING SPEECH
Senate Galleries Applaud as
He Calls Article X. Un-American.
DEMOCRATS LOSING HOLD
Hitchcock Foresees Many Bal

Special Detpatch lo Tub Sun.
Washington, Oct. 9. Senator "Walsh
(Mass.) delivered to-day his long
awaited speech on the peaco treaty It
fully justified the interest with which
It had been anticipated, for In addition
to declaring his reasons for opposition
td the treaty as It stands it proved one
of the most able discussions of the
pact, as well us -one of the most elo
quent addresses, that havo marked the
long debate.
From the time when it became
known several weeks ago that Mr.
"Walsh, tho llrst Democratic Senator
from Massachusetts in nearly a cen
tury, was uncompromisingly opposed
to the trenty and tho league covenant
In many essential respects, his position
has been recognized as of foremost
Importance and Interest. To-day he
demonstrated his rank. Seldom has
any speaker held his audience in such
closo attention as was paid to Mr.
Walsh.
It Is seldom that a speech, though it
may consume tho sitting hours of the
chamber, Is the real event, of a Sena
torial day, but tliat was the case to
day. Democrats and Republicans alike
waived tho long established rule that
speeches are inevitable but not to be
listened to. This was ono of tho ex
ceptions when It was necessary to
listen necessary because of tho polit
ical Importance of tho utterances,
which Indicated that the Senator was
going to support the Lodge reserva
tions and at least two of the pending
amendments to tho treaty.
Analyze Article X.
In his analysis of Article X., for ex
ample, Mr. Walsh did one of the best
pieces of work that has been accom
plished by any speaker on that hack
neyed subject. The galleries applauded
dtspite the recent rigid order of the rule
ugalnst demonstrations when be said :
"In so far as I believe the text of the
treaty and covenant before us conflicts
with these principles I havo raised, and
shall continue to raise, my voice In pro
test. I may bo misjudged, my motives
questioned, as has been the lot of many
members of the Senate who havo taken
sides on this question, but whatever ma
be the Judgment of my fellow men I at
least shall have the satisfaction of
knowing that by protesting against the
Injustice of the Shantung provision and
the dangers lurking In Article X. for
America and the world I have not con
scientiously done anything to make It
dllllcull for any American or any citizen
of the world to say, as did Kossuth
when he turned to the Ameilcan flag In
Fanoull Hall, 'A flag without a stain; a
country without a crime.' "
Ilcputillr mm Are Pleased,
Aside from Senator Walsh's speech
the day was devoted to the conferences
among leaders in the treaty contest, out
of which came little new light on the
situation. Republicans were Intensely
pleased with the Walsh address, because
It was recognized as the straightforward
declaration of a man willing to lead any
of his party toward an Independent de
cision free from the partisan bonds 'that
have been so tightly pressed down on the
members of the Administration side of
the Chamber. The disposition to recog
nize that there must be highly important
modifications of the treaty before It can
be ratified gained force to-day. Even
Senator Hitchcock (Neb.) admitted for
the first time that he anticipated a long
series of votes cn many proposed reser
vations before agreement should' be
reached.
This admission was frankly mado dur
Ing a conversation about the parliamen
tary situation. 'Mr. Hitchcock declared
that the Lodge reservations, even if they
could muster the necessary 19 votes for
adoption Into the resolution of ratifica
tion, would fall, because with them In
tho resolution could not poll the neces
sary two-thirds to ratify. After that
there would presumably come a vote on
tho resolution to ratify without anr
reservations. That falling It would then
be necessary to vote on one proposed
set ot reservations after another until
nt length some formula should be pro
duced on which the necessary two-thirds,
or 64 votes, should be polled.
Many llnllots Foreseen,
"I antlcipata there will be a very
long series of votes before the agreement
Is reached," said Hitchcock, "but of
course It will bo finally reached. There
will bo very many proposed forma of
reservation offered In tho effort to reach
something on which the necessary sup
port can be united, but there Is no

Lieut. Belvin W. Maynard, the "flying parson" who has
far outdistanced the fifty-odd competitors who started with
him from Mineola Wednesday morning in the transcontinental
air race, clasped hands with Capt. Lowell H. Smith, pilot of
the leading plane from San Francisco, yesterday afternoon at
4:19 at North Platte, Neb. Less than a day and a half after
the start from the two oceans on each side of North America
the two men had. driven their planes to a common point in 'the
heart of the continent, a point 1,491 miles from the Atlantic
Ocean and 1,210 miles from the Pacific.
But neither flier was disposed to waste breath on the
auspiciousness of the occasion, and although the handclasp was
a firm one, it was hasty. Before night came Lieut. Maynard
had roared on 205 miles to Cheyenne, Wyo., while Capt. Smith
had pushed his plane to Omaha, Neb., 250 miles from the
meeting place.

Col. Gerald Brandt, who la at De

fects of tho crash Jn which his me
chanic, Sergeant William H. Nevltt,
was killed, sent a wire to Chance
Vought, chairman of the contest com
mltteo of tho American Flying' Club,
which proved that his nerve Is Intact.
Col. Brandt wanted to know whether
or not Mr. Vought thought ho would
be able to get liim another IMI machine
precisely like tho ono In which ho so
narrowly cscuped death so that ho
might continue the race.
Word by telephone from Deposit
reached Col. Archie Miller at Hazel
hurst Field that Cdl. Hrandt was still
suffering from bruises and a severe
shaking up. ,
"Any Internal Injuries?" asked Col.
Miller anxiously.
"His only Internal trouble Is a hearty
appetite," answered the voice at the
other end of the wire.
Sergeant Nevitt, who was 28 years old,
was known at Mineola by his friends In
the service as "Hoarlng Bill." Ho was
one of the best mechanics at the field.
He enlisted In July, 1917, In Ohlo and
went overseas In January, 1918, where
he served in the Somme fighting and at
Cambrat. Ho reentered as an air service
mechanic last May.
