PAGE TWO. LEAGUE MEETING WILL BE MONDAY INTERESTING EVENT Manager Frank Runyan of Bluff ton . and Manager Jes sup Will Lead Opposing Forces. POLICE JUDGE SENTENCED SELF Will Spend a Day in Work House. ANOTHER MEETING HELD TO FORM NEW LEAGUE. At This Rump Session in Mar ion It Was Agreed That Runyan Should Be Awarded The Presidency. Toledo, O., Feb. 1 James Austin assumed the rolo today of both police judge and defendant. Police Judge Austin sentenced Citizen Austin to j one day in the workhouse. The de i fendant was charged with "curiosity" and confessed his guilt. The judge believes that his day s confinement will assist him in dis pensing justice from the police court bench. Austin is a close student of criminology and some of his ideas which have been in vogue have borne fruit. "I am going to ride over to the work house in the patrol wagon just like ordinary criminals," said the judge. "I don't ask any favors from officials either. They understand my object and promise to treat me the same as other guests." The meeting of the Indiana-Ohio league at Van Wert, O.. Monday, prom ises to be a mofit interesting event. At this meeting the two warring factions, one headed by Manager Frank Runyan f Bluffton. and the other by Manager Clarence Jessup, of Richmond, will fight it out over the question of the league presidency and the question of tne organization of the league. On Friday. Uunyati. of Bluffton. lannigan of Kokonio and Hall of Ma--rion. met in the latter city anil decided 1o oppose the organization of the league as decided on at a meeting held In Richmond two weeks ago. At this meeting franchises were awarded to the following titles: Richmond. Van Wert. Muncie, Marion, Anderson. Pi qua. Hluffton and Kokonio. At the Marion meeting it was proposed to drop Muncie and Piqua and substitute Huntington ami Decatur, Runyan and his associates were of the opinion that Richmond was "out of the way." but too good a ball town to be eliminated. Manager Jessup was not invited to attend the Marion meeting. Van Wert refused -to send a representative while Manager O'Neil of Anderson fulled to put in an appearance. To Hall and Ijannigan, Frank Runyan annouced that he wanted to be elected president j of the league and they promised to sup port his candidacy at the Van Wert meeting. At this meeting, Crose of Muncie, O'Neil of Anderson. Gamble of Van Vert and Prince of Piqua, will lineup bark of Jessuo. They will oppose Runyan's plan of being made dictator of the I.-O. league for the reason that heis a manager of one of the clubs and 'that it is desirable to have thiri office filled by someone who is not directly interested with any club in the league. At the Richmond meeting Runyan was defeated for president for this reason alone. Manager Jessup has always worked for the best inter ests of the league and he is surprised at the bitterness of the attacks made upon himself and this city, by Runyan. MEETING I M. C. A.

He said that none of Shurley's friends had authorized him to approach Jenkinson with such a proposition or that he had any con versation on the matter with a bank official or employe. He professed an Interest in the candidacies of Shurley and Jenkinson but. admitted that at the time Jenkinson had rejected his proposition he had not taken the trouble to exercise his friendship for Shurley to such a point as to prompt him to make a similar proposition to Shurley. Mr. Dougan ami Mr. Egge niryer, representing the bank, stated that the institution was. not connected with the matter in any way nor was it interested in the candidacy of Shur ley or anyone else. Mr. Shurley testi fied along the lines of his statement published yesterday in the local papers. London. Feb. 1. Heated charges of cowardice in turning a blind eye to the "reign of terrorism" in Ireland in or der to keep the nationalists in good temper and assure a continuance of their support in the commons were launched against the government in the house of lords today. The marquis of Londonderry, who was viceroy of Ireland in ISSO-'SO, led in the attack, and so infectious were his sentiments that even Lord Lang ford, who has been a representative peer of Ireland since ISS-I, broke his silence of twenty-four years and devot ed his maiden speech to a recital of his personal experience with cattle driv ing outside his own gates. Worse Than in the Early '80s. The Marquis of Ijondonderry declar ed that the present state of Ireland is worse than in the dark days of the early 'Nts. when murder and outrage were rampant, and he attributed the conditions entirely to the cowardice of the government. He said it was reported that the constabulary had been ordered not to come into actual contact with the lawbreakers. The judges, he said, were paralyzed in the sections subject to coercion by the Irish league, and aria! by jury was a farce out of 'S.', persons tried only eight being convicted. Even the gov ernment's own Irish attorney general had declared that if the present con ditions continued anarchy would re sult. Ixrd Reauchamp, replying in behalf of the government, complained or tne lUlpmhprQ nf Phlirrh Will Par. exaggerated pessimism of the unionist IViemDerS 01 UnUrCn Wl aP peers and resented Lord Lansdowne's comparison yesterday between Ireland land Macedonia. He admitted that cat- tie driving had increased during the last year, out saui mat. mis was me sole sign of agrarian conditions be coming worse. With a view to arousing increased interest in the work of the Y. M. C. A. the directors of this organization have arranged for a number of popular meetings through the remainder of the winter, the first of which is to be held at 3 o'clock this afternoon at the eGn nett theater. The speaker on this oe asion will be Sylvester A. Long, who enjoys a very wide reputation as a lec turer. No admission will be charged to this lectre and the public is urged to attend and hear the message that Mr. Long has to deliver. It is hoped tnat the seating capacity will be ex hausted. Provided this plan of meet ing proves popular, it is probable occa sions of this character will be contin ued indefinitely and various other good speakers will be brough to the city. Mr. Long, who will speak this after noon, has lectures on a variety of sub jects. His topic this afternoon has not been announced. One of hi.? strongest is "The Man of Destiny. It is a review of the career of Napoleon Bonaparte. It is said to be unpreju diced, impartial and accurate, preserv ing all the fascination without the bur den of historical detail. "Lightning and Toothpicks" is the subject of a humorous lecture. "Drop It" is a striking presentation of some every day mistakes. The subject matter de pends much upon the occasion. ft is popular and of special interest to the young people. "Hungry People," is an ethological study of desire. It is new and thought by some to be Mr. Long's masterpiece. Mr. Long usual ly selects his Sunday addresses from the subjects :"Drop It," "The Master Spoke," and "Why Live?" Though not a preacher, his Sunday addresses have become famous. Mr. Long's success as a lecturer has been most remarkable. He began lec turing while engaged as a school teach er and since 1004 has devoted his en tire time to it. He has appeared with uniform success in nearly every state in the union. It is with pleasure the committee, announces his appearance in this city, as the first speaker. No man bears a higher recommendation by the associations of larger cities. It is his custom to deliver Y. M. C. A. addresses on Sunday, although direct ing his efforts to the entertainment platform on other dates. FRIENDS DEDICATION ticipate in Exercises at Muncie Today.

Muncie, Ind., Feb. 1 Members of the Friends' church from ma-' States will participate in the exer. .-, s de voted to the dedication of the hand some Friends' church here on Sunday. The church with furnishings, was con structed at a cost of about $50,000, due to the tireless energies of the pas tor, the Rev. Charles Hiatt, Joseph Goddard and other members, who con tributed liberally of their time and means. The congregation will aband on its little, old frame building that has been its place of worship for a half century. The exercises attending the dedication will last several days, a special program for each day of the week, beginning Sunday, having been arranged. The dedicatory sermon will 'be preached Sunday morning at 10:30 ! o'clock by the Rev. Joseph John Mills. pastor of the First Friends' church. ' of Toronto, Canada, who will be as sisted by the pastor and by the Rev. j Charles Robert Douglass, of Versailles, O.. and by the Rev. William P. Am gell, formerly a pastor of the local church.

The letter which President Roosevelt has written to William Dudley Foulke, in which the president, in plain, unvar nished language expresses his opinion of his critics and defends himself agains the charge of having used pat ronage in the interest of Setretary Tail will not be given to the public. Secretary Loeb said yesterday in Washington that this letter is not to be published. Since the white house does not care to have it printed, it is not at all likely that Mr. Foulke will permit it to creep into type. Its contents will be one of the secrets which Mr. Foulke will carry around to the end of his ca reer. Secretary Loeb is now preparing a statement on the patronage question which may or may not be made pub lic. It will declare that in Indiana, as in other "favorite sons" states, no attempts have been made to exercise any influence over federal employes, who have been left to work for their favorite sons. The Ixieb statement will contain no references to any Indi ana officeholders by name. Camden, O.. Feb. 1 Though M years. Win. A. Snyder of this place, has withstood successfully the ravag es of pneumonia and is now past the critical and in the convalescent stage of his illness. Mr. Snyder is the father of Mrs. Muncie, Ind., Feb. 1. Though the immediate effect of the action of the Muncie Merchants' association in rid ing on the boycotted city street cars yesterday was to bolster up the flag ging courage of many who have been afraid to ride on the street cars since the strike began, there was no general movement to use the street cars last night, even though a driving rain was falling and the streets were wet and sloppy. But the merchants say they did not expect to break the boycott in a day. They think, however, they have driven the entering wedge and are con fident they have substantial support from the public. Action of Labor Unions. Organized labor, however, is more bitter than ever. The labor unions ac cuse the business men of allying them selves with the Union Traction com pany and many union men employ harsh terms in characterizing the merchants. The various meetings that held regular meetings last night passed resolutions condemnatory of the Mer chants' association and the Commer cial club and pledged themselves to hold out indefinitely against the trac tion company.
