National Commission to
Take Up Amateur
Athletic Question
Cincinnati, O . Feb 5. The nation
al baseball commission at its next
mcotlnjr will disc uss the question Of
amateur athletics and will seek to
revise the present rules, which de
clare an amateur athlete a profession
al if he plays professional baseball,
according to a statement by August
Herrmann, chairman of the national
commission here today. The discus
sion will be a result of the recent
Thorpe ruling.
"The Btand which the rulers of am
ateur athletics take against profes- j
sional baseball." said President Herr- j
mann today, "Is u relic of the dark,
ages Thirty or thirty-five years ago!
the professional ball player was re
garded with suspicion and marked
prejudice Unpleasant memories of
the Hall-Devlin-N'ichols-Cravcr scan
dal of 1877 still clung to the gam"
and its representatives. It w,.s while
the game was still in this unhappy
position that the laws that still gov
ern amateur athletics were formulat
ed. Baseball since those times has
advanced to a standing of integrity
and public confidence; the amateur
laws have practically stood stock
still "The college boy who goes out and
plays ball in the summer months
should not be confronted with the al
ternative of cither deliberate false
hood or the penalties now Inflicted
by the amatour rules.
'Both common justice and the hou-
or we owe the game demand that
3(jme early action should be taken j
and the governing forces of baseball j
should be the first to cope with the
situation. Of course the time be
tween now and the schedule meeting
Is limited: concerted, definite action
may not be possible, but we can at
least formulate plans for the Immedi
ate future."

General Mills pays B high compli

The tendency on the part of the
militarj authorities to hold the mil

more marked, One manifestation of
this is a decision of the war depart

Alaskan Commission
Claims Extensive Rail
ways Are Needed
Washington, Feb 5 The Alaskan
railroad commission has reported to
President Taft that more than one
extensive railway will be needed prop
erly to open up Alaska's resources.
The report, which the President will
send to congress with recommenda
tions, says there are several available
' railroad routes from the coast into
I the far interior of Alaska. No defi-
nite recommendations are made as to
the choice of ronte
The report declares that the route
up the Susltna valley, passing near
the rich Metanuska coal fields, on up
through good agricultural land, to the
lignite fields and on to Fairbanks in
j central Alaska with its gold, silver
I and other wealth, could not develop
the resources of the Copper River
The route from Cordova, in the fa
mous ontroller bay region, up the
( 'opper and Tanana river basins to
j Fairbanks, would be near the Bering
I coal fields, which could bo opened up
; by the building of a branch line then
would go north through rich copper
I country and on to central Uaska. An
other possible route would run from
near Juneau In the southern part of
the peninsula, cross Canadian terri
I tory north of the St Elias mountain
range and thence up the Tanana rlv-
er valley to Fairbanks.

ProVO, Feb 5 At a meeting of the
county commissioners of Utah coun
ty yesterday A. V. Robinson, tbe coun
ty clerk, presented a report on his
examination of the county books. Te
stated that he had discovered a num
ber of discrepancies in the balances
made by li ta predecessor ln office.
He buid that Indications pointed tu the
conclusion that "the auditing for
some time had been done with the
treasurers books as a guide'' It is
possible that expert accountants will
be t'tuploved to go over the books
thoroughly and post them to the date
upon which Robinson went into of
fice. Robinson stated in his communica
tion to ihe commissioners that he had
r peatedly requested that (he former
countv clerk. M K,. Kartcbuer Jr., to
posi all accounts to January 1. 1913,
but that the reqnesl had met with no
fiiiswer The commissioners instruct
ed Robinson to send an official re- I
quest from the board to former Clerk B
Kartchner, asking him to post all ac- Br.'-'
counts to January 1, In the event iH
that the former official does not com- B
ply It is probable that the books will IB
be audited by experts.' m
In his report Robinson states that tt
the books show that Kartchner drew B I
$9.27 more salary than was due him; B
thai other officers drew a total of
128.14 more than they should have B .
received. He said the receptacles for K
bills against the county contained Hp

Bt. Petersburg Feb. 4. Those who
are fighring for the privilege of free

The same court also ordered a pre

the degree of guilt of 348 signers of
