C. THE AMERICAN TOBACCO COMPANY LOCOMOTIVE IS BURIED. One on West River Road Is Caught in Snowslide. Brattleboro, Feb. 16. Windham county experienced Saturday the worst blizzard since 18H8. An intense snow fall began about midnight and con tinued until Saturday afternoon, so that about 15 inches fell. The Brattleboro electric road was practically put out of commission. The West River railroad train started for Brattleboro, but was obliged to divide at the Salmon Hole hill. Most of the passengers were taken to Xewfane on the first trip. , The locomotive, while returning for the balance of the train, encountered a snowslide which nearly buried it, and at a late hour last night it had not been extricated. Teams were sent from Kewfane to bring the mail and trainmen to Newfane inn for shelter and food. Col. Davidison of Highland Park, 111., was among those snowbound, who will have to stay a day or two at Newfane' until traffic can be resumed. Practically all the trains were several hours late. Searsburg Reports 4 Feet of Snow. North Adams, Mass., Feb. IS. A teamster coming into North Adams from Searsburg, Vt., Saturday reported four feet of snow in the latter place. He left Searsburg at 6 in the morning and did not reach North Adams until late last night. Neighboring villages re port almost equal depths. Chicago, Feb. Ifi.-The American league has declared war," said Ban Johnson Saturday. "We -will stop at nothing to eliminate the present man agement of the Chicago National league club from organized baseball. It is, to my mind, essential that President Tencr of the National league and Garry Herr mann, president of the national com mission, be clothed with absolute au thority to remove from the National league any club owner htjld to be a detriment to the game." Johnson, roused by Charles W. Mur phy's threat to take legal action against him, Saturday broke the silence which he has maintained since the joint league conference in New York, and outlined his plan to maintain between the major leagues the good understanding which, he asserted, was menaced by the pres ent conduct of the Cubs. The Ameri can league, be intimated, was prepared to go the length of changing the . na tional agreement or of favoring the for mation of another major league. "I am clothed with absolute power by the American league to remove any club owner woo is regarded as a detriment to the organization," declared Johnson. "The heads of the National league should have the same power. At my meeting in New York with Messrs. Tener, Herr mann, Baker, Dreyfuss, and three or four others, I told them that if the Nations' league could not control this discordant element here in Chicago, the American league would not longer be able to dove tail with their organization." Johnson said the entire baseball world was indignant that Evers should be dropped a few days before the team started on its training trip. "Nothing could be more harmful to baseball," he declared. "Evers had just been sent South to look over training quarters and had been commissioned to sign a num ber of players men whose signatures I doubt Murphy could have obtained with out the aid of Evers. Then he was dropped at a few days' notice when he thought in perfect good faith he had a five years' contract. Of course, Evers was dropped in accordance with the pro visions of his contract, and he should have known what he was sinim before he signed it. But we don't want that sort of thing in baseball. We want per fect confidence between players, owners and the public. "llly Locke witnessed the signature to Overs' contract, and he came to me afterward and said Evers was standing over a trap door and did not know it. The side agreement attached to th con tract provided that Evers might be dropped at 10 days' notice, but Evers j signed without reading it. We cant i afford to betray the confidence of a ball ! player in that manner. This is the big issue in baseball now, and not the Fed eral league. I think the Federal league comes to us now as a blessing .'n dis guise. The American league has set out to see this matter through, and we will not fulter until it is satisfactorily set tled. "The national agreement," declared Johnson, "can be changed at any time by a majority vote of the partie inter ested. It doesn't require a unanimous vote. As for Murphy's threats against me personally," Johnson said, "they are mere vaporings. I do not reply to them, but I indicate by what I have said how far the American league is prepared to MONTPELIER HIGH BEAT BURLINGTON Evened Up for Previous Defeat By Win - ning 42 to 21 Saturday Even ing at Montpelier.

' "We had a cigar and confectionery store and most of our customers were men," she told the court. "When I waited on the customers I alwavs had a smile and a pleasant word for them. As a result they. bought liberally and w; prospered. "But my husband was sure my smile wasn't entirely a professional one and he nagged and insulted me." , ' J Mrs.1 Saunders got her divorce.
