As the fleeting hours drew swiftly closer the moment when Washing ton's own base ball idols will match skill for the championship of the world, this suddenly regenerated old town that so recently shrugged cyni cally at proffered thrills, literally throbbed with excitement and joy to day. Completely dropping Us already drooping mantle of official reserve, the staid old National Capital stamp ed it in the dust as it capitulated unanimously to the king of the na tional pastime, and no longer even attempted to make a pretense at do ing any work. Nothing 4»ut -that • game tomorrow makes any difference now. Thousands Clamor for Tickets. The last finishing touches were be ing applied everywhere today. Once more fans by the thousands banged in vain at the stadium gates for tickets. Perspiring carpenters were hammering the last few nails in the temporary stands in center field. And calm in the midst of the storm, the fighting Griffmen went through their i final, spirited workout. Out at the ball park the very at mosphere seemed to breathe the word "'ready.” The lucky few who had • managed to beg positions as peanut and soft-drink salesmen stood in line waiting for their white coats and final instructions. The wire gates were all firmly in position, and ‘‘One eyed” Connolly, in a final, supreme effort, succeeded in crashing the gate. Not only did the champion gate crasher maintain his record of having begged his way into every big sport ing event of recent years, but this time he is going to be paid for it. He was taken on this morning as a program “salesman” and will receive 10 per cent commission for every score card he peddles for a nickel. Kynon Pacifies Kickers. Over in the clubhouse, tired, pa tient Ed Eynon. the man who has had the hard task of distributing the tickets, worked doggedly on, guarded by half a dozen policemen, trying to meet the demands of the thousands of disappointed faas, who continued to beseige him with kicks—some of them justifiable and others simply pure selfishness. A few score wanted different seats from those allotted them. They were promptly shown the door. Others came to inquire why they had not received reservations in response to requests written long ago. Some of these were mailed to wrong addresses, a few others, quite naturally, were simply overlooked in the scramble. To date, it is figured that more than , 200.000 persons wanted the 37,000 tickets the AVashington club had available for every one. And in the meantime, other thousands of re quests are arriving at the clubhouse daily and are not even being opened, it was only natural under such stren ous conditions that some mistakes should have been made. Try to Work ••I’ull.” The worst trouble noticed by on lookers at the ball park today was caused by certain men who consid ered that they had "puH” and who insisted upon being allotted large batches of tickets for “out-of-town customers.” They got the same an swer: “Take your place in line. The minute the people who wrote months ago have finished calling for their reservations we will sell to the pub lic what has not been called for. - This club does not feel that it is fair 'to sell a man’s ticket when he has not been able to get up to the win dow to get them because of the crowd.” Eynon figured shortly before noon that there probably would be 2,000 reserved seats to be sold in this man ner. He expected they would be sent to the booths at noon, but this hour, be explained, depended altogether on whether the lines that still stood in front of the booths where reserva tions were being held had been taken care of. The throng has simply over whelmed the ticket sellers and they are disposing of them as quickly as possible. Many to be Disappointed. t It might be added, however, that' there are already 5,000 persons clam oring at the stadium gates waiting for these tickets, and that at least 3,000 of those are doomed to be dis fcappointed is just as sure as death Itself. Only those who were in line early and had the patience and for t Itude to remain there for weary (Continued on Page 3, Column 4.~ FIGHT IS LOOMING HERE OVER BASE BALL BRIBE Landis, Johnson, Ueydler and Team On tiers, Will Meet Today—Drey fuss Demands Fuller Probe .

LEATKERMAN NEED GUILTY IN TARRING I Myersville Man, Who Denied Aiding Attack on Girl, First of 19 to Be Tried. j By the Associated Press. FREDERICK. Md.. October 3. —A verdict of guilty was returned by the • jury today in the case of Harry j Leatherman, indicted for tarring and ! feathering Dorothy Grandon of Mar i tinsburg, AY.

LOGAN REFUSES POST ON REPARATION BODY Will Remain as Unofficial Ob server. He Says, Declining Commissionership. By (fie Associated Press. PARIS, October 3.—James A. Logan, jr., has declined the post of fifth member of the reparation com mission nnafficially offered to him by members of the commission. This is the post provided for under the Dawes plan, which specifies that it shall be filled by an American citizen. Mr. laigan wrote' to the president of the commission. M. Barthou, last Saturday, it is learned, expressing thanks for the honor offered him, and the confidence shown in him by his associates, t He believed, however, that his duty was to retain the office given him by the American Govern ment and remain an unofficial ob server with the commission, in which position he thought his usefulness to his country would be greater. Mr. Logan immediately cabled the State Department of his decision. He had long been regarded by the com mission as the ideal man for the post and political circles welcomed the idea, because the transformation of an American official into a repara tion commissioner, even though he no longer represented the Government, would, to European minds, indicate a closer relationship of the United States to reparation problems.

GIVEN MORAL SUPPORT OF FEDERAL AUTHORITIES Internal Revenue Bureau, Tech nically Taking No Part, Places Liberal Construction on Laws. Backed by a liberal construction of the revenue law, hut without the technical support of the Revenue Bu reau. the Washington police depart ment early this afternoon launched a vigorous campaign designed to banish from the National Capital the scores of world series ticket specu lators, who have been reaping a golden harvest since yesterday at the expense of the base ball fans. Orders had scarcely been broadcast throughout the various police pre cincts, providing blanket instructions to arrest every person selling base ball tickets in excess of the official ball park price, when the first of the arrests was made at the improvised “brokerage" office located at the Sar noff-Trving hat store. 1215 Pennsyl vania avenue, doing business as “Har nett’s Ticket Agency,” which was closed up by police of the first precinct, acting under instructions from Capt. Brown. The proprietor of the agency, who gave his name as Charles T. Barnett, was placed under arrest quietly and with little formality by Precinct De tective Talley, in the presence of Deputy Collector of Internal Revenue Nagle, who had been on duty at the agency all morning, watching for violations of the revenue law. Returns to Office, Other arrests were to follow im mediately at the closely grouped “brokerage" offices in the same block, several of which opened only last night or this morning. Barnett, who is from out-of-town, as are most of the other brokers, was released on S3OO collateral. Police had orders to continue to re arresting offenders, as long as they sold tickets in excess of the regu larly established price printed on the face by the bail club. Will Test Issue In Court. “AA’e are going to banish scalping during this world series if it is hu manly and legally possible,” declared Corporation Counsel Francis H. Ste phens as he emerged Just before noon frotn the conference in his office with high police officials, at which the dras tic order to the police was drawn up. “Congress, we believe, intended that ticket scalpers should be prosecuted under this law. and we are not going to let them get around it. If our in terpretation of the law is wrong, let these men prove it in court.” Similar expressions came from Maj. Daniel Sullivan, chief of police; Inspectors Shelby and Evans, and Ringgold Hart, assistant corporation counsel, fol lowing the conference. AA’hile the police were thus clamping the lid down on the outburst of ticket speculating all over the city, revenue bureau officials stood by and gave their "moral” support, but expressed the laconic opinion that the police had interpreted the law incorrectly. “That's their business, however." they said. Provisions of I.aw. The wording of the law under which the police acted today follows; “AA'hoever sells an admission ticket or card on which the name of the vender and price is not printed, so stamped, printed or written thereon, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be lined not more than $100." This clause is from section 500 (d) of the revenue act of 192 4. Barnett and the other brokers have been stamping their names and the price at which they sold the tickets on the back of the card with a rubber stamp. This, according to the Revenue Bureau, complied with the law, and although the bureau lias had two representatives stationed in each agency, no arrests had been made. The men were instructed to watch only to see that the "brokers” stamp ed the name and price on the back of the ticket. Crowds See Little Evidence. Lunch hour crowds gathered in front of the four ticket offices which have been opened in tho 1200 block of Pennsylvania, avenue scarcely knew that the police were raiding the establishments, so quickly and effec tively did the hand of the law fall on the admittedly surprised ticket sellers. At the hat store, the proprietors of which evidently had rented space in the front of the store to Barnett, Detective Talley, in plain clothes, stopped a customer, who had just purchased a $16.50 grandstand series ticket for $25, and asked to examine the ticket. On the back was stamped “Barnett Ticket Agency,” with the broker's selling price writ ten in ink on a dotted line provided fer the purpose. Talley immediately announced to Barnett, a short, middle-aged man, that he was “under arrest." "But here's a revenue man,” ex claimed Barnett, pointing to Nagle. “I don’t care about that, I’m a po liceman, and you've got to come with me,” said the detective.

ARMAMENT REDUCTION UP. * I League Council Announces Special Meeting to Elaborate Plans." By Hip Associated Press. GENEVA, October 3.—The council of the League of Nations decided to day to hold a special meeting No vember 15. probably in Geneva, to elaborate plans for the international j conference on reduction of armaments | provided for in the protocol on arbi- | tration and security, which it is plan- I ned to hold next year. The council as it is at present con- j stituted probably will not meet in November, but each of the 10 states represented in it will designate rep resentatives qualified to discuss the technical matters involved in the pro gram for the conference. The opinion seems to be growing here that it will not be possible to carry out the original intention to convoke the conference June 15. as the questionnaire concerning the agenda will hardly reach the vari ous governments before the end of the year at about which time the various parliaments will be considering the protocol itself. A French spokesman expressed the opinion today that the conference could not be convened be fore 'he Autumn of 1925. Such a de lay, it is pointed out, would afford more time for the necessary ratifica tions. Concern Over British Politics. The internal political situation in Great Britain is causing concern among the delegates, as they realize that the fate of the conference de pends on whether the British Parlia ment ratifies the protocol. The atti tude of former Premier Asquith, the Liberal leader, toward the British agreement with Soviet Russia is re garded here as likely to force a gen eral election in England and Eng lishmen here fear that a conservative victory would imperil the protocol.

A fire in the San Gabriel watershed of the Los Angeles national forest resisted efforts of 250 men to bring it under control. The most threatening fires were reported in the Descano region, where 4,800 acres have, been burned; at Palo mar Mountain, 10 miles north of Campo, where a number of ranch buildings and cabins were destroyed, and at Central Camp, in the Tahoe national forest.

Stair Correspondent of Tlie Star PORTLAND, Ore., October 3. Wil liam Jennings Bryan, campaigning in the Northwest, sensing the fact that the so-called Progressive vot*- of the country threatens to split be tween La Follette and Davis, leaving the way open for President Coolidge as the conservative candidate to ob tain a plurality, strongly urges that Progressives throw their strength to Davis. He urged it here in Oregon, wher he delivered a series of addresses But when it comes to giving such ad vice to followers of Senator Iju. Kol lette the Commoner might as well have saved his effort. They are not going to vote for John W. Davis, no’ here in Oregon. G. O. P. Count «n Division. It is in this division of the “opposi tion" to C'oolidge that the Republi cans have the greatest hope of suc cess here. Oregon, in the first place, is a comparatively strong Republican State. A Democratic leader told me today that the ordinary Republican strength was about 2’-j to 1 or per haps even more, when compared to the Democratic, but Ibis leader said that in his opinion the vast majority of the La Follettt- voters would come from the Republican ranks. The Democrats, he believes, will stand firm and in the division be tween Coolidge and La Koilette it will be found that the Democrats will have a plurality on November 4. He harks back to what happened in 1912. when Roosevelt led a majority of the Republicans into the Bull Moose camp and threw the State to Wilson thereby. His conclusions would be correct if his hypothesis were not faulty: La Follette will draw the greater part of his strength from the Republican party in Oregon, to be sure. That is reluctantly admitted by some of the. Republicans. But he will also draw many votes from the Democrats. Bryan View Supported. If the Progressive leader should win twice as many votes away from the Republicans as he does from the Democrats, the deflection from the Democratic ranks would still be such as to leave the Republicans in the ascendency. The size-up of the situation by Col Bryan which led to his strenuous ap peal to the Progressive-minded voters to get behind Davis in the Northwest ern States is much more correct. There, is one thing, however, which has militated against Col. Bryan's ap peal, as the Progressives see it here, namely, his attitude toward Mr. Da vis before he was nominated and his attitude toward him since the nomi nation. Coolidge probably will carry Oregon in November. That is the accepted prediction lu re in many quarters. But the situation politically should not be dismissed. I.a I'ollelle Mde Active. The La Follette campaign has been active. it has been going on for months, in this State, as in others, lie will have a gfeat many workers’ votes; not all. of course, but a very large proportion. The railroad men, the street car men, workers in the lumber camps and factories, and, last, but by no means least, disgruntled farmers are expected to vote for the Progressive ticket. The State lias a very considerable number of Gt rman-American voters. Its largest foreign element is German. These votes probably will go to l.a Follette.
