feared exposure might result fatally for
the two children but it la said tbey

- For many hours the barges drifted
helplessly and those aboard took to the
dory when the barges began to sink.
Orient Point people saw the dory drift

One on West River Road Is Caught in
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
