MORE PLAYERS ANDGAMBLERS fACE CHARGES (By United Press) Chicago, Sept. 29.—“We now have all the evidence necessary to go ahead and prosecute every one interested in the conspiracy,” Judge C. A. McDon ald declared today after Claude Wil liams, White Sox pitcher, had made his confession, naming the gamblers who paid the bribes. Williams con fessed first to Judge McDonald and then was taken before the grand jury. Williams was the third of the White Sox players to confess his share in th( conspiracy. His evidence completed the cha n which Attorney Replople has drawn around the players and the betting interests which have operated in baseball. The grand jury acted immediately upon Williams’ confession. “Sport” Sullivan, named several times in the probe, and a Boston man named Brown were indicted hardly before Williams had left the grand jury room. He de clared they were two of the “fixers” who had bribed the Sox during the world series. (By United Press) Chicago, Sept. 29.—Three more players and three gamblers will be in dicted today by the Cook county grand jury for their conspiracy to “fix'’ the 1919 world series and other games so th-.‘ gambling syndicates might reap a harvest from successful betting. In making the announcement the state at torney’s office said that the players were not members of the Chicago W bite Sox, seven o£ whom were in dicted yesterday, and that the gamb lers do not reside in Chicago. No um pires are under investigation, it was officially said. Hartley Replogle, assistant state’s attorney in charge of the grand jury investigation of baseball, said that many letters have been sent the jury asking a probe of the 1914 world se ries between the Boston Nationals and the Philadelphia Americans, which the j Nationals won, four games to none. Eddie Cicotte, first of the White Sox players to confess the acceptance of a bribe, hurriedly left Chicago today. It was said he went to a farm near De troit, his home. Cicotte and Joe Jackson, outfielder, were the two principal White Sox play ers to admit their guilt. Cicotte ad mitted taking a bribe of .flO.OOO to | “throw” the world series games which he startedsto pitch against Cincinnati. Jackson admitted no effort upon his part to bat when hits meant runs for the Sox. Those indicted with Cicotte and Jackson are Fred McMullin, utility man; “Happy” Flesch, outfielder; I “Swede” Risberg, short stop; Claude ! Williams, pitcher; Buck” Weaver, in j fielder, and “Chick” Gandil, first base I man at the time the world series was ! played. ! rar trom losing: ground because of the dishonor heaped upon the White ! Sox players, Charles A. Comiskey, ! owner of the club, stands out as a he roic figure in baseball. His prompt action in paying off and suspending the j indicted players, although it disrupted his team contending for the American | League pennant, raised the “Old Ro man" higher in the estimation of all Chicago and all baseball. With “Kid" Gleason, his manager, and Collins, cap tain of the Sox, Comisky will turn again to building up a club which will continue to make Sox park the mecca of diamond fans. 2 COfllSlAKE IMMENSE MINS (Hy TTnited I’roaa) Washington, Sept. 29.—Population of two counties in Arkansas were an nounced by the bureau of the census today as follows: Craighead county, 37,541, an in crease of 9,914 or 35.9 per cent.
