Some L?ssons In Reconstruction, jn
common with everyone here present this
morning, 1 (have heard numerous dis
courses based upon the parable of "a
certain rich man." We all remember how
the rich man of the parable, satiated by
his accumulations, resolved to pull down
his barns an 1 build greater that he might
revel In the luxurious contemplation of
his own possessions. All the preachers
nnd publ.c speakers whom I hive heard
hac presented tho rich man as nn ex
ample to shun, but 1 believe there Is
another side to the e.inracter of this
certain rich man which 1 believe cm ry
one of us would do well t emulate

at Saratoga Working1

Saratoga, N. V.. Sept. While Vnl
tivl States Senator Boot, Stnto chairman
Barnes and other lendeis were at work
to-night whipping Into shape the Bepub

State convention sat by the county camp
fires and discussed tin- candidacy of
State Senator ll.mey D lllnman, which
wns brought forth ugain as a posMble
dark horse for the governorship.
.Sentiment does not appear to have suf
ficiently crystallized about any one of
a number of candidates for the head of
the ticket to make It possible for tbe
leadeis to suggest e en n tentative slate.

One or two of the State leaders went to
Senator Boot lo-nlght and urged him to
use his Influence to bring about the nomi
nation of Senator lllnman. This ' was
after Senator Hoot had told Inquirers that
he himself must not be considered a. a
candldite. A long distance telephone
message was sent to Senator lllnman a-k-lng
him to come here and lake the con
vention tloor to make the light for dlrei t
primaries. The senator wnn unable to ac

A woman's suffrage plank, more r
less modified in form from that sub
mitted by the ardent women suffra
gists here, will, It Is reported late to
night, be drafted Into the Itepubllean
party platform. Just what form this
suffrage plunk would take was a mat
ter of speculation.
The platform probably will take note
of the police scandals In New York
city. It Is suggested that Instead of a
radical provision for a State constab
ulary, the governor be empowered to

many of the county leaders engaged on

the woik of slate making was In con

The second game will be played In

alternate tach fair weather day between
the 'two cities until either New York or
Boston has won the four out of seven
games necessary to win the 1!)12 title.
Boston will conduct Its sale of tickets
In Its own way, with preference to the
season patrons. The sale In New York
will be In the hands of Secretary John
,. Heydler of tho National League and
&J.roo of the 3'i.OOO seats will be held for
sale at the entrance to the Polo Grounds,
one to each purchaser on the days of the
The umpires will be O'Loughlln and
IJvans of the American League and Blgler
and Klem of the National League.
I'hese arrangements were perfected to
day at a meeting of tho national baseball
commission. consisting of Chairman
August Herrmann and Presidents Johnson
and Lynch of tho American and National
Leagues, at the home of John T. Brush,
president of the New York club. There
were also present President James Mc
Aleer and Secretary Bobert MeRoy of
the Boston club, Secretary Jos. O'Brien
of the New York club and Secretary
Hedl-i of the National Leagm
V vantage of opening on home
grounds was lost to Boston when at
tho toss of a coin by Mr. Johnson,
President Brush of New York called
"tails" nnd President McAleer of Bos
ton chose "heads." The coin fell tails.
The Boston club desired to start tlw
series on Monday, October " President
Brush regarded Monday as a poor dav
for an opener In New York and prob
ably also foresaw an ndvnntqge In
giving the Giants and extra, day's rest
nfter their probably late clinching of
the pennant title.

tlon that the Boston American League
club should handle the sale of tickets
In its own way, President Ban John
son of the American League had come
to the meeting to fight It out. The dis
cussion of tlie question, In which Au
gust Herrmann took tho stand that the
national commission should have au
thority over the sale of tickets In both
cities, and in which President Lynch
Is said to have sided with him, was
conducted behind closed doors.
The Ameilcan League president was
backed virtually by an ultimatum In tho
tormtof n resolution adopted by the.
league last winter declaring that It
would r.eier engago In an lntor-leagua
series again unless Its club was given
control of the ticket sellinu In Its city.
On the strength of this determination.
Secretary McBoy of the Boston club be
gan plans for handling the tickets early
in July by canvassing nil tho regular
patrons of the game In whoso hands he
proposed to place the much coveted
world series admission cards.f
What took placo In the secret session
of the commission was not given out In

Boston would be allowed to go ahead
with Its plans.
