NEW LEAGUES PilAY GET PROTECTION Deal in Baseball Amounting Almost to Revolution Said to Be Under Way. (Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.1 Cincinnati. O.. March L?According to storlts carried by afternoon papers here to? day a new deal la baseball, almost a base? ball revolution, :s under way, and within the next few days.

The angles: are: "Utilization of the ball paries in the one club ca.os of thi major leagues for the younger league games during the absence of the senior teams.

Bill HAS FIGHT IN EVERY PARAGRAPH Department of Agriculture Is Doomed to Receive Some Body P.lows. MANY TAKE TO WARPATH Lamb's Big Measure Certain to Bring Out Big Political Battle. Washington, March I.?It Is almost certain tlint before the on<l of tho present week Congress will see one of the most Interesting political lights pulled off In many u day, and Con? gressman John Lamb, of Virginia, will be chief rlngmustcr and timekeeper. The tight Is coining with the agricul? tural appropriation bill, which Is now | lending bet?re the House, and Is re? ceiving consideration except when sidetracked to give way to certain j calendar business, which must bo at- I j tended to. / | j Storm warnings are displayed, and j I clouds huvo been gathering around | Secretary Wilson und tho department for months. Many members of the j House who do not like the way things I In the bin department huve been run I hing have been patiently biding their time until the ngricuiuural up- j I propriatlun bill should be reached to ; give vet,, to their feelings. Under this procedure, when a man is given a certain limit ot time he Is at liberty to discuss ulmout unything he liken, und as the udminlairuilon of Secre? tary Wilson's department is Btrlctly In ! keeping with tno bill It will be almost impossible to cut off speakers becauso of unparliamentary prucedunl or any- | thing like that. Captain Batnb, when asked to-day whut range the coming storm prob? ably wouiei take, candidly said that ho did not know; that there wero many members who wished to speak, and ho had no ideu whut they would ea.y or j w Ithin wnut limits they would confine their remarks. There ure certain members who want I light as to why President Taft has never done that house-cleaning which it has teen was needed when Dr. Wiley wus figuring in the limelight recently. : As yet. however, ho bus dune nothing, and on tho heels of this comes the I Florida evernlades scandal und a brutiu-new row between Dr. Wiley and the members of the food and drugs board over the question of a baking powder decision. Then there aro a number of mem? bers who want information about As? sistant Secretary Hayes trying to get In on the ground floor when he heard there was a goo<j deal of money to be made |f certain land In North Caro? lina could be placed on the market with the- government's Indorsement. But moro than all, there are some who ere Impatiently waiting for an , opportunity to get at Solicitor McCabe. I They say he Is the man they are after, I and that much of tho present discon? tent and disorganization In the forces of the department are due to him, und to the fact that he has Secretary Wil? son "hypnotized." Practically every paragraph In the agricultural approprlutlon bill, when it Is gone Into In earnest, 'e expected to bring on a tight. Congressman Frank Clark, of Flor? ida, who is responsible moro than any others for divulging the manner In which innocent purchasers were buying land In Florida which was practically worthless, is preparing to land n twelve-pounder against Solici? tor McCabe when his place on tho pro? gram Is readied. Ono thing is certain, when Captain Umb finishes tho work of passing his big bill he will know he has bce'n In a fight, and as the Third District Congressman did a llttlo fighting on his own account during the SO's he ought to know what ono means.

Monday afternoon. I Two hours after the arrest, a coroner's jury was cmpannclled. and after hear? ing tho evidence of the attending phy? sicians and Chief of Police Mitchell and Detective Pearson, returned a ver? dict to the effect that Anderson came to his death from a pistol shot wound, und that the Jury believed the pistol was In the hands of Mrs. Barnes.

He never re? gained consciousness, and died at mid li ght lust night.
