New York, Feb. 16. Five to three in favor of a 16K-gamc season was ap parently the way the National league magnates stood when the struggle over the playing schedule was resumed to day. Not In years have the rulers of the National league destinies worked Into so choice a situation as that revealed by the failure so far to ngreo on play ing dates for the coming season. Six votes ure necessary for the adoption of a schedule. The line-up when adjournment was taken yesterday to today was: Ebborts, P.rooklyn; Murphy, Chicago; Robin son, St. Louis; Rrush, New York; and Fogel. Philadelphia, for a long season; 'an(1 Dreyfuss, Pittsburg; Herrmann, Cincinnati; and Dovey, Boston, for a 154-game schedule. P.oth sides today declared their In tention to stand pat and tho prospects for a speedy reconciliation did not ap pear bright. There were numerous consultations among the magnates during the nwnlng and In some quar ters hope was expressed that when they got together In the afternoon for a resumption of their regular session some sort of a basis for a compromlso might be reached. The bitter factional feeling engendered by the Ward-Heyd-ler deadlock at the December meeting seemed to have broken out again, how ever, and It was difficult to guess what common ground for agreement could be reached by the contending elements. American League Adopts Schedule. Chicago, Feb. 16. The American league continued Its annual schedule meeting here today. It Is expected to day's session will end the meeting. The first business to come before the meeting was the adoption of a new agreement to replace the original one which expires In November this year.

This was discussed thor oughly at yesterday's session but no final vote taken then In order that the club owners might huve more time to consider such an important question. The 154-gume schedule was unani mously adopted and the draft submit ted was approved without any .changes. Western League Session. Chicago, Feb. 16. The annual sched ule meeting of the Western league was held here today. When the meeting opened It was undecided whether tho list would consist of 154 or 168 games, but It was generally believed the smaller number would be adopted.

What the census enumerators are required to learn regarding the place of birth of native born and foreign born per sons, and other personal facts con cerning tho latter class, In taking the Thirteenth United States Census, be ginning April 15 next, Is fully set forth In the printed Instructions prepared by the United States Census Rureau to guide them In filling the population schedule. ' It Is pointed out that nil the questions relate only to conditions existing on April 15, tho "Census Day." On the subject of place of birth of a native-born person the Instructions state that If the person was born in the United States the enumerator is to give the State or Territory (not city or town) In which born. A person born in what la now AVest Virginia, North Dakota, South Dakota or Okla homa should be reported as bo born, although at the time of birth the par ticular region may have had a different name. Relative tcr conjugal condition, the enumerators are to report whether the person is single, married, widowed, or divorced. Married persons are to bo asked If they have been married be fore. If the present marriage is the first, the fact Is to be indicated by the sign "M 1"; but if it Is tho second or subsequent marriage, then tho enu merator is to write "M 2," meaning married more than once. The question calling for the number of years of the present marriage is declared by the Census Rureau to ap ply only to persons reported ns mar ried, and tho answer should give the number of years married to the pres ent husbnnd or wife. Thus a woman who may have been married for 10 years to a former husband, but has been married only 3 years to her pres ent husband, should be returned as married 3 years. The number of years entered should be the number of com pleted years. A person who on April 15, the "Census Day," has been mar ried 3 years and .11 months should be returned as married 3 years. For a person married less than 1 year, the entry is to be "0," meaning less than 1 year. In tho case of persons speaking Pol ish or reporting that they were born In Poland, which is no longer nn in dependent country,' the enumerator Is to Inquire whether the birthplace was In what Is tiow known as German Po land, or Austrian Poland, or Russian Poland, and he must write the answer accordingly as Poland (Ger.), Foland (Aust.), or Poland (Russ.). If the birthplace reported is Cnn- oda the enumerator is required to ask whether the person is of English or French descent and write Canada (Eng.), or Canada (Fr.), according to the answer. The question calling for the year of Immigration to the United States ap plies to ull foreign-born persons, male and female, of whatever age. It should be answered, therefore, for every per son whose birthplace was in a foreign country. The enumerator must enter the year in which the person came to the United States. If he has been In tho United States more than once, the year of his first arrival is to be stated. The inquiry whether naturalized or alien applies only to foreign-born males 21 years of age and over. It does not apply to females, to foreign-born minors, or to any male born In the United States. If the person was born abroad, but has become a full citizen either by taking out second or final papers of naturalization .or through the naturalization of his parents while he was under tho age of 21 years, tho enumerator is to writo "Na" (for nat uralized). If he has declared his in tention to become an American citizen end taken out his "first papers," .the enumerator Is to write "Pa." If he has taken no steps toward becoming an American citizen, the enumerator Is to write "Al" (for alien). The inquiry as to the ability to speak English applies to all persons 10 years of age or over. If English Is spoken, the enumerator must write "English" in the proper column. If the person enumerated Is not able to speak English the enumerator Is re quired. In such cases only, to write out the name of the language spok en, as French, German, Italian, etc. If- more than one language is spoken by a person who, however, does not speak English, then the enumerator Is to w rite the name of that language which Is his native language or mother tongue. CARNEGIE SWIMMING POOL. New Haven, Conn., Feb. 16.

MANY CHINESE SMUGGLED IN Present Law Not Operating to Keep Them Out Proposed Physical Examination for Male Aliens. Washington, Feb. 15. Not further restriction but merely to make possible such restriction as the existing law Intends but has not accomplished, 1b tho object of a proposed new immigra tion law recommended by Daniel J. Kccfe, the Commissioner General of Immigration in his annual report for the fiscal yenr 1909. It is proposed to accomplish this by codifying, arranging In logical sequence and strengthening at their weak points nil existing laws on tho general subject of Immigration and Chinese exclusion. Some of the principal suggestions are: So defining the term "alien" as to leave no doubt that It includes all per sons not citizens; extending the con tract labor provisions to forbid nnd penalize the Inducement of immigra tion by false as well as genuine prom ises of employment, penalizing an at tempt to Import foreign laborers, and permitting the Importation of alien skilled laborers if labor of like kind unemployed cannot be found here only If the consent of the secretary of com merce and labor is obtained In ad vance; increasing fine against steam ship companies for taking on board dangerously diseased aliens from $100 to $200. Mr. Keefe believes the time Is ripe for the adoption of even stricter meas ures nnd suggests that a proposal wor thy of careful thought is that nil male aliens between 16 und 50 bo required to pass a physical examination equal to that observed for army recruits. Touching the "white slave" t traffic the report sets out that a "special In vestigation conducted throughout the country and the general experience of tho year, make It apparent that nn enormous business is done In Importing and distributing foreign women for immoral purposes, including the se duction nnd distribution of alien wom en nnd girls who enter regularly, and also to some extent of American wom en and girls. The federal officers have not discovered positive evidence of the existence of a syndicate for those ne farious purposes, but there is among those who conduct the business a cer tain espirlt de corps, nnd there are in several cities clubs and headquarters where they congregate." In some cities, it Is declared, the traffic Is connected with local political conditions nnd some of tho municipal authorities are Implicated or otherwise helpless to assist in eradicating tho evil. The federal government's pow ers, It Is Btnted. are so limited us to mako It essential If any marked prog ress is to be expected that the states and cities shall awake to tho serious ness of the situation and exercise their undoubted authority to put down the evil. During the year there was a marked Increase In deportations as a result of the campaign against the traffic. The provisions on this subject in the bill submitted by Mr. Keefe to carry out his recommendations are In principle the sama as in the bill which already has passed the house except that they do not "o so far in the features uf Ifectlng Interstate regulation of the practice. Contrary to tho general Impression Chinese admitted to tho United States have Increased during the past four years and Mr. Keefe is pessimistic re garding tho operation of the law. He j rf)n,oludcs that the system of exclu sion and expulsion by it Is but lily nu opted for either purpose. lie says: "Despite all that Is said and all that is done, the bureau is always confi dent at the close of any year that many Chinese of the excluded classes have evaded the border officers, how ever vigilant they may have been, have smuggled themselves or been smug gled ashore In seaports ns sailors or stowaways, or have by fraud and per jury managed to land in an apparently regular manner. There ore clou m loss now In this country at least as many Chinese not entitled to residence here ns of the lawfully resident cinss. nnd they have entered In every way that can be Imagined." It Is urged that the exclusion laws be merged Into the general immigra tion law, so that the administrative process of expulsion therein provided may be used. There are also a number of other recommendations which the commis sioner says may be considered revolu tlonnry. but are regarded as necessary If the law Is to be effective and satis factory. During 1909. 6,393 Chinese were reg ularly admitted against 4.624 In 190S, 3.::,.- In 190 and 2.732 In 190. The worst feature the commissioner says Is that the Increase Is almost confined to classes the members of which nre or soon become laborers nnd whose resi dence here violates the spirit of the law. Continued on Tflge 5. Louisville, Ky., Feb. 16. Henry Watterson, the veteran editor of the Courier-Journal and often referred to ns the foremost journalist or tlic South, celebrated tho seventieth an niversary of his birth today and was the recipient of many congratulations. Family boremvemeents and falling eye sight have combined to cause the vet eran editor to relinquish active work almost wholly during the past year, but his Interest in public affairs Is us active and his pen as ready, when he chooses to use it. as in the stirring days of his youth when he was editor of the saucy "Chattanooga Rebel." Mr. Watterson was born In the storm-center of national politics, at Washington, February 16, 1840. In consequence of defective eyesight, which has always troubled him,' he wus sent but little to the public schools, but received much careful education at home. At the commence ment of the war he enlisted In the Confederate army and became chief of scouts for Gen. Joseph K. Johnson. At the end of the war he made his way practically penniless to Louisville, where a few years later he Joined W. D. Haldeman In the newspaper en terprise which made fame und for tune for bth of them. Mr. Watterson became active in pol itics In 1872, and between that time and 1892 no democratic platform was written without his aid nnd counsel. He presided over the convention that nominated Tilden, and was prominent as a leader and plntform-framor until the convention of 1S9G which nomin ated William J. Rryan upon a free silver platform, and called forth from Mr. Watterson, then in Switzerland, the famous telegram, "no compromise with dishonor" a message that con firmed W. D. Haldeman, owner of tho Courier-Journal, in his determination to oppose Mr. Rryan. REFORMERS ARE HIT HARD. Philadelphia. Pa.. Feb. 16.

HOLDS A CONFERENCE TODAY Executive Talks With Senators and Representatives in Charge of Measures He is Anxious to Have Disposed of. Washington, Feb. 16. The slow pro gress of congress in disposing of im portant measures, which the president has especially urged upon its atten tion. Is causing him extreme dissatis faction and he Is taking measures to let that fact be known. Today he was called upon at tho White house, pre sumably at his own request, by sev eral legislators In charge of various measures and tho necessity for prompt uction at least upon some minor mat ters of legislation strongly urged by him. Among these were: Senator I lever Id ge, chairman of the committee on territories, who is looking after the Alaskan territorial bill; Senator Car ter, who Is fathering the postal sav ings bank bill; Senator Ilorah, who has distinguished himself by his actlvo opposition to some features of the Alaska measure; and Representative Hayes, ranked as an insurgent, whoso aid might be helpful in securing unit ed action by the republican majority in the house upon the republican plat form pledges. It Is believed the president desires such measures as the Arizona and New Mexico statehood bill, the Alas kan territory, and others of compara tively minor importance, be acted upon at once Jn order to clear tho way for some of the larger subjects, at least those likely to give rise to prolonged discussion and controversy. Ileverldge is said to have reported ho found difficulty in getting his commit tee together to dispose of business and a similar complaint comes from other quarters. The president will continue his per sonal Interviews with various, leaders in the senate and house, nnd if this course dots not avail to promote seedy action In congress on measures re ferred to, It is entirely possible ho may feel called upon to send a special message to congress placing the re sponsibility where It belongs.
