ous, and Mclnnis Will Ap-
pear in Lineup
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18.—Manager
Connie Mack .of the Philadelphia
Americans said today that he did not
think there was a possible chance for
Center Fielder Oldring, who was In
jured in last Tuesday's game with the
all-stars, to pla;- in tho ' world's se
Oldring twisted the ligaments in his
knee. „ „
"Some say that wo should not have
worked the players by playing' these
games with the all-stars this week,"
said Mack, "but the games were ab
solutely necessary If wo had to pay
tho penalty in the cost of a star
player. I •
"My men were getting rusty an* a
few days more of idleness would have
seriously injured our chances next
week. As it is, tho series this week
Is putting the team in grand shape."
The manager of tho champions would
not tell his outfield plans, hut said that
there was a chance thai Mclnnis will
take Oldrlng's place. < Ho played cen
ter t.day and handled himself well.
Many Old Stars of Coast League
Fame Discovered Along
Local Rialto
Already the winter ln-rush of ball
players to Southern California has be
gun, and daily the faces of diamond
artists, who hall Los Angeles and near
by precincts as their. homos, appear
along the rialto. Southern California
is the mecca of the ball players in the
winter and with those who live else
where it appears to be a case of "once
tried, always used." "Never was there
a ball player," declares a fan who finds
time to keep the data on the subject,
"who spent a winter In this vicinity
and had the price of a ticket to South
ern California the following wlnt _-, but
returned." As the big league man
agers are gradually finding out that
California is an ideal place to train in
the spring, so the players individually
have long since found lt an equally
ideal place to pass the idle months.
Among the eastern leaguers who
have already arrived, and every train
brings more, are "Dolly" . Gray of
Washington, Elmer Reiger of the St.
Louis Cardinals and "Gavy" Cravath
of the Minneapolis club of the Ameri
can association. "Gavy," by, the way,
led the American association in batting
this year ,vlth the remarkable record
of .326. '
Among the lesser fry are "Bulger"
Walsh, the old Pasadena favorite, who
played the past season In the South
Atlantic league; "Goose" Pittman, for
merly of McCormick's, who worked
with the Newton, Kansas, team; Geo.
E. Dalyrmple of Blsbee, Arizona, Bob
Klnklein, Tim Sullivan and Lee O'Con
nor of the Clinton, lowa, club, and
numbers of others who will soon com
mence to frequent their old haunts.

The first annual dog show of the La
dies' Kennel Association of Southern
California opened Thursday afternoon
at Luna park with 315 canines of all
breeds and classes on exhibition. Dog
land aristocracy from points as far

Judging the entries Is a Job difficult
enough even for those well versed ln
canine lore.
Tho judging was scheduled to begin
yesterday afternoon, but upon looking
over tho field the Judges decided to
make a tour of Inspection before com
mencing their work. Two magnificent !
Boston bulls from the Hollywood ken

F. H. "Williams', Is one of the prom
inent entries among the English bull
dogs." Every variety of dog from toy
poodles to St. Bernards and mastiffs
is at the show, which will contlnu*
untll Saturday night,'
The Kennel association, encouraged
by the unqualified success of Its first
annual exhibition, is already talking
over the plans of the next one, and
Interest In the canine cultivating is
increasing dally. The climatic condi
tions are ideal for the _ breeding of
superior varieties of these four-footed
"friends of man," and the local show
compares well with the exhibitions of
the eastern fanciers. .

Balke and Graves Matched for
Best 2 Out of 3-Free-for
All Hour Race
The local and northern dealers have
especially requested a match between
Balke and Graves, the best two. out
of three to be winner. This race, be
cause of Interest taken in last Sun
day's races at Ascot park, will be
pulled off probably next Sunday at
Ascot. This race will undoubtedly be
ono of the greatest of all matched
races ever run on any track. The in
terest taken by the dealers alone
shows what they expect these two
great riders to do.
Balke is to ride a new Indian ma
chine, which he has named "The Pet,"
and Graves will ride a new Merkel.
With these two wonderful machines
and , daring riders this race alone will
be worth the admission.
. In addition to this race there will
be a one hour, open for all, which
will surely please the spectators. Much
Interest is centered In this race as to
the amount of miles that will be cov
ered In one hour. There will also be
an eight-mile stock machine race,
when little Don Johns . will endeavor
to walk home with the prize.
Musician Relates Sad Story of
Matrimonial Discord
NEW YORK, Oct. Tender beefsteak and
music and melting dollars figured yesterday In
oases In the domestic relations court In* Brook
lyn. The beefsteak and music were introduced
In the case of Albert Gilbert and his wife of
29 St. John's place.
Gilbert explained that be had bought a juicy
steak, and his mouth watered all - the way
home as he kept thinking how luscious it was
going to taste. But he and his wife were not
on very good terms. She tok the steak from
him graciously enough and cooked lt so that
the house was filled with the fragrance, but
when the steak came to the table Mrs. Gilbert
wouldn't give any of lt to him. He got angry
and left the house.
"I don't mind getting out and staying out,"
sold he to Magistrate Naumer, "except that
I can't do without my music. She haa my
mahogany piano. It Is the solace of my ex
istence. I'd rather have music than eat,
though I'd rather have both."
"If your • wife will try cooking you some
dainty meals and you will reward her by
playing the piano," Bald the magistrate, "har
mony may come out of the present discord.
Go home and try it."
When she got married In London seven
years ago she had 114,000, said Mrs. James
Coates. Her husband had gone through $10,000
of It since, she added.
"And now he wants to get rid of me," she
added. • "He's altogether too friendly with a
woman at our boarding house at 124 Ashland
place. .He tried to kill mo by throwing me
out of a window. But I could forgive every
thing if he would promise to move from that
house." ' ,__ ...
"Is that all 7" cried Coates. "We'll move
' out of that house this very night."

Music Notes
A good sized audience greeted the
members of the singing section of the
Turn Vereln Germania at Simpson
auditorium last night. The concert
was arranged in order that local
friends might have an opportunity of
hearing these singers in the same song
which won for them the beautiful
kaiser's cup at the recent saengerfest
in San Francisco. This song, "Morning
in the Forest," by Hegar, was given
with splendid effect and was greeted
with tumultuous applause. Every one
of the singers felt an honest pride in
his part of the success the Los Angeles
body had won, and every member of
the audience last night was delighted
with the singers, not only in this
prize song, but In the many other
numbers of th© program as well.
Three compositions for string or
chestra, written by H. Schoenefeld and
directed by him last night, displayed
again the fact that Los Angeles has
not only singers of high merit, but
composers, as well. A song by this
same composer, "Margaret," was sung
by the club with Incidental solo by
Joseph Blschof.
Madame Bertha Penning Amet, so
prano, sang an aria from Mozart's
"The Marriage of Figaro," which was
well received and to which she, later
ln the program, gave a double number,
"Verborgenhelt," by Wolf, and "Solda
tenlied," by Taubert, in both of which
her voice was heard to good advantage.
Julius Blerllch's Symphony orchestra
contributed several numbers, and the
program was concluded by Podbert
sky's "Frederick Barbarossa," given
by chorus and orchestra. --
The concert receipts were turned
over to the fund for the benefit of the
Times sufferers'.
Question of Changing Name Is
Discussed by Delegates at
' Cincinnati Convention
CINCINNATI, Oct. 13.— house of
deputies of the Protestant Episcopal
convention appointed a committee to
day to meet with a committee of bish
ops and bring in a report at this ses
sion regarding the advisability of hold
ing a world's convention of Christian
churches. ■ ■
- The house of bishops decided that it
would be inexpedient at this time to
bring before the convention the matter
of changing the laws of the church re
garding marriage and divorce.
The question of changing the name of
the church from the Protestant Episco
pal Church of the United States of
America'to the Episcopal Church of the
United States in America was discussed
by the deputies, but no action was
taken. It" ' i •
"The menace of the Idle poor, who
must . work , but ■ wish to be idle, .Is no
greater than the menace of the idle
rich, who give themselves up to pleas
ure with no thought of work," says the
report of the Joint committee on the re
lations of capital and labor, submitted
to the convention by the Rev. Edward
L. Parsons, rector of St. Mark's church,
Berkeley, Cal.
Specific recommendations in the re
port included the gradual reduction of
the hours of labor in order to give that
degree of leisure that Is necessary for
proper social life; one day of rest ln
seven, for all who labor, and a living
wage as the minimum ln all branches
of industry.
Elmer Relger, a local contribution to
the "big brush," Is back from a season
with the Cardinals. Reiger was sent
to the St. Louis club, which is Bresna
han's "reserve farm" for a month, and
while there won nine of the thirteen
games in which he participated. He
joined the Cardinals again Just after
the season closed In the American
association, and then returned home.
Reiger ia counted by Bresnahan the
"biggest find of. the season among
minor league pitchers," and will be a
regular with St. Louis next year.

Wm. C. Owen Recalls Fact That
Educator Was Considered
Latin Tolstoy
Despite the rain and the fact that the
Liberal club had held a similar meeting
the night before, the Francisco Ferrer
association was able to draw a large
crowd to Labor (Temple last night. The
gathering was essentially cosmopolitan,
as had been the intention of the organ
izers, and speeches were made by
Messrs. Stanley B. Wilson, Channlng
Severance, Clarence Melly and William
C. Owen in English, and by Gutierrez
de Lara, I. Camminlta and S. Chaplro
in Spanish, Italian and Yiddish. At
Intervals the assemblage sang "John
Brown's Body" and the "Marseilles."
Ferrer was represented as essentially
a martyr to free speech, whose crime
was that he had fearlessly taught the
radical conclusions respecting church
and state, patriotism and the evils of
the existing social system, to which his
studies had led him, and the first
speaker of the evening, Wm. C. Ow
en, called attention to the fact that
among the numerous messages of sym
pathy received from distinguished sci
entists and men of letter was one from
Tolstoy. Ferrer himself, it was stated,
had been generally known as the Tol
stoy of the Latin races.
Almost without exception the speak
ers emphasized the sentiment that the
only fitting monument for Ferrer was
the continuation of his work, and that
as he himself had fallen a martyr to
the cause of free speech, it behooved
all who professed to follow him to
stand bravely for free thought and
speech at all hazards. "
Weyler Holds Troops Ready to
Prevent Meetings
MADRID, Oct. 13.—Today was the
first anniversary of the execution of
Prof. Francisco Ferrer, founder of the
modern school at Barcelona, who was
convicted of having conspired against
the government and brought about the
rebellion In the summer of 1909.
The day has been dreaded by the
authorities. The free-thinkers, Social
ists and Republicans had planned
Ferrer demonstrations that might
easily lead to bloodshed. Up to early
afternoon no untoward incident had
occurred. This was due to the firm
attitude taken by Premier Canalejas
and the ministry and the orders is
sued to General Weyler, captain gen
eral of Catalonia, to put down merci
lessly any revolt.
Throughout Spain troops were held
at their barracks, ready tor Instant
service. Every olHcer and soldier on
leave had rejoined J his command at
The danger of rioting appeared
greatest at Barcelona, where. gov
ernment refused to authorize proces
sions and manifestations at Ferrer's
Those wishing to take part In such
gatherings were informed that if they
visited the cemetery to place flowers
upon the grave of tho Republican
leader they must do so individually
and not in a body. ' •
■ Even the assembling of small groups
was prohibited.
The recent encouragement the Span
ish Republicans found In the success
of the revolution in Portugal was a
source of special concern, as there are
rumors that the outbreak at Lisbon
was planned originally for today and
was to have coincided with a Repub
lican uprising in Spain. What, if any,
revolutionary plans have been cher
ished by the Republicans is a matter
of doubt to the .government, which,
however, early determined to take no
chances and prepared for the worst to
day. \-;-,. ' '
LONDON, Oct. Special precau
tions were taken today, the anniver
sary of the execution of Francisco
Ferrer, the Spanish modern school
teacher, to guard the Spanish embassy
here. . '
Villa y Urrutl, tho Spanish ambas
sador to Great Britain, recently has
received several threatening letters
and last night the pavement and steps
leading to the embassy were daubed
with red paint.
Only One American Woman Left
in the Running for Na
tional Title
CftICAGO, Oct. 13.—As tho result of
matches In the third round of the
women's national golf championship at
Homewood today, only one American,
Miss Lillian M. Hyde of New York,
was left In the running.
Other players who qualified for the
semi-finals tomorrow were Miss Dor
othy Campbell and Miss Florence Har
vey, both of Hamilton, Ont., and Mrs.
a. M. Martin of Lavistock, England.
The draw brings together the two Can
adian women in the semi-finals to
morrow, while Miss Hyde meets Mrs.
Martin. .. ,
There were no surprises in the
matches today. Miss Dorothy Camp
bell had little trouble with Mrs. R. H.
Barlow of Philadelphia, defeating her
4 up and 3 to play. In the interna
tional match, in which Miss Vida
Llewellyn of La Grange, former west
ern champion, met Miss Lillian Hyde,
metropolitan champion, Miss Hyde was
returned victorious, 3 up and 1 to
play. Miss Florence Harvey defeated
Miss Ruth Layman of Chicago, 5 up
and 3 to play. Mrs. Martin defeated
Miss E. C. Nesbitt of Woodstock, Ont.,
7 up and 5 to play.
Leaders Arrested, and Others to
Be Forced Into Army
PARIS, Oct. 18.— French govern
ment is meeting the situation result
ing from the general strike of rail
road employes with a firmness .that
challenges the admiration even of
those who sympathize with the men In
their demands for a minimum wage of
SI a day. , ,' -
Five of the strike leaders were placed
under arrest early today. This action
was in fulfillment of Premier Briand s
promise to punish the agitators who,
he declared, precipitated an insurrec
tionary movement at. the pery hour
that the premier and M. Millerand, the
minister of public works, posts and
telegraphs, were conducting »negotia
tions looking to the peaceful adjust
ment of tho differences between the
railroad managements and tneir em-
The national railroad union has suc
ceeded In thoroughly demoralizing the
service on the northern and -western
systems, but it had less success In the
eastern and southern lines.
The situation this morning showed
little change from yesterday. The men
from Paris, Lyons and Mediterranean
road are now on strike and the eastern
road is badly hampered, but many
trains are being operated on the for
mer systems. The employes of the
Paris-Orleans road and the Paris sub
way last night voted to go out. but
the subway lines were being operated
as usual this forenoon. j
The hope of the strikers rests largely
in the prospect of sympathetic strikes.
The bricklayers. and pavers have voted
a general strike beginning today. The
unions of other trades are meeting
and aro expressing similar intentions.
The five strike leaders arrested -this
morning attempted" a dramatic scene
by assembling in the office of the Hu
manite, a Socialist newspaper, where
they passed the night In the company
of virtually the complete Socialist dele
gation of the chamber of deputies,
awaiting the arrival of the police.
When the officers arrived and the
deputies began to make inflammatory
speeches the prefect of police cut the
proceedings short and hustled the
leaders off in cabs.
The mobilization of railroad reservists
decreed by the government is pro
ceeding. The men have responded in
largo numbers, but as yet they have
not been ordered to take up the work
of the strikers.
Thousands of suburbanites were
further inconvenienced by a deluge of
rain which made many of the roads
leading Into the city impassable to
pedestrians. As a consequence many
failed to report at their offices and the
business of the city is upset.
A number of acts of violence against
rolling stock are reported in the
provinces. The strike is effective on
the western road leading to Lemans,
Brest, Cherbourg, Havre and Dieppe
and on the northern road extending to
'Amiens, Boulogne and Calais. It had
failed up to this afternoon on the
southern divisions, over which Dijon,
Chalons, Lyons and Marseilles on the
Mediterranean are reached. The east
ern road to Belgium and German
points was badly hampered but not
