New York, March 23. While certain Chicagoans are intimating that Charles Webb Murphy is not really '"out of the Cubs," sinister rumors were heard Sat urday to the effect that Gov. Tener, president of the National league, backed by a majority of magnates in his organ ization, will refuse to accept the ap pointment by Charles P. Taft, Cub own er, of Charles Herbert Thomas, Murphy's former secretary, as president of the club. Ban Johnson's recently expressed demand that Murphy be ousted is kept in mind. Both American and National league Vlub owners feel bitter over the failure of Taft to sell the Cubs to John T. Connery of Chicago. A special meeting of the National league may be held next week to thresh out the matter, and vigorous action that may culminate in court proceedings is hinted at. Gov. Tener announced in Harrisburg that lie had made an offer to Taft to take an option for the sale of the club in the name of the National league if Taft would sell for $800,000. The ac ceptance of this offer might avert se rious trouble. "There are conditions to be studied carefully in the action of Mr. Taft whereby Charles H. Thomas is made president of the Cubs," said Gov. Tener in Harrisburg. "The original agreement with Charles P. Xatt calls for the es tablishment in office of a man acceptable to the JSational league. 1 have just re ceived ray first official notice of the in tention of Mr. Taft to have .Thomas serve as president. There have been ob jections filed already. . "At the time I argued with Mr. Taft over Charles W. Murphy I made it plain that there is no room in baseball for men of the Murphy calibre. If there is any suspicion of Murphys hand being in the appointment of Thomas that makes the latter undesirable." TANGO MAY COST SCHOOL JOB. Woman Teacher at Frankford Dances Too Much, Fathers Charge. Newton, N. J., March 23. That Miss Alice O. Walsh, a teacher in Myers school, Frankford township, indulges her fondness for the tango, the hesitation and the maxixe so late at night that she is incapable of teaching writing and arithmetic properly by day, is charged by three fathers in a complaint just filed with the board of education. Miss Walsh insists that she dances only on Friday nights, but the three fa thers, Charles Spagenburg, Thomas Lit tle and John Drake, say her appear ance on other mornings than Saturday has made them suspicious. Sometimes, they assert, she has been forced to call on a 14-year-old girl to assist her in teaching. The case was 'placed before Ralph Decker, county superintendent of schools, Saturday, and a hearing will be held in Branchville Thursday afternoon.

Mystery in Death of Mrs. Hannah Kel ley, Who Made Million in Atlantic City. Atlantic City, N. J., March 23. Mrs Hannah Kelley, 74 years old, at one time one of the most daring and successful real estate operators in Atlantic City, and who accumulated a million, which she is said to have lost on the New York Stock Exchange, was found dead yester day in the- dining room of her modest home on South Pennsylvania avenue. Neighbors give an air of mystery to her death. Some . reported that myste rious noises were heard and figures seen about the premises. They expressed the belief that burglars had entered the house and tried by torture to wring from her the secret hiding places of her jewels, which were, so the gossip ran, the chief assets left after her stock mar ket career. The body, nearly nude, was found badly burned on the dining room floor, Her night robe was nearly burned from her body. Beside her were the ashes of a newspaper which had been twisted into a torch apparently to light the gas after it had beet) ignited in the kitchen stove. One theory is that in throwing the torch to the Hoor she had used her slip pered foot to smother the flame and in doing so her night robe caught hre. Her cries, the detectives say, may have been the strange noises neighbors re' port. They attribute her death to col lapse brought on by pain and fear. The body was discovered by Mrs. Kclley's secretary, John P. Grace, who roomed in the house. He savs that she was in the habit of leaving her room at night for the kitchen and dining room for something to eat. There were no signs of robbery nor of a struggle and the conclusion reached by the county physician was that death was due to shock and age. Her secre tary says that there was no evidence of suicide and he believes that her death was purely accidental. Mrs. Kelley was the widow of Edward Kelley, hat manufacturer, Philadelphia, who left her a fortune. She came to Atlantic City and made fortunate in vestments in Chelsea, a section now cov ered with hotels and cottages assessed for more than $10,000,01X1, and which then was a stretch of waste and treeless sand dunes. With her in the enterprise of develop ing this tract was Mrs. Mary Riddle, mother of Mayor William Riddle of At lantio City, who inherited the fortune his mother accumulated by their joint operations. HOTEL GUESTS WERE ROUTED OUT By $100,000 Fire in Niles Building on School Street, Boston, But the Hotels Were in No Great Danger. Boston, March 23. Fire discovered on the second floor of the rear of the Niles building, at 27 School street, late Satur day night, worked through the roof, damaging the building and contents about $100,000 and threatening .adjoin ing property before it was under con trol. Chief McDonough, as soon as he cached the fire, ordered a third alarm, and a few minute later sent in another alarm from 'Milk and Washington streets, which was equivalent to a fourth alarm. Tenants of neighboring buildings, in cluding guests at Young's hotel and at the Parker house, packed their belong ings and in a number of instances left for less hazardous locations, but the fire men were able to keep the fire confined to the five story rear portion of the building, which is at 16 City Hall ave nue. The janitor, Samuel Griffin, and his wife; a roomer, frank Lewis, and Mr. Griffin's niece, Miss. Sadie Fry, sleeping on the fourth floor, were driven out bv the hre and 12 prisoners in sta lion 2 were removed to headquarters tor safety. John Donovan, manager of the postal telegranh office in City Hall avenue, dis covered the fire and the occupants of the janitor's apartment were awakened by the shrill cries of one of the postal messenger boys, while Donovan was giv ing an alarm. The cause of the fire is unknown. It started in the rooms occupied by the uniformed rank. Knights of Pythias, Janitor Urimn said. Griffin declared that his assistant, George G. Lane, made a final round of the building at 10:45 o'clock and reported that everything was all right. The fire was discovered with in a half hour of that time and was under great headway. Boston, March 23. Gov. Walsh has de cided not to refer the plea of William A. Dorr, the murderer of George E. Marsh, for commutation of sentence, to the-ex ecutive council. . Accordingly, the sen tence of death jn the electric chair prob ably will lie carried out a few minutes after midnight to-morrow morning. "After hearing all the evidence and carefully considering every angle of the atter, I cannot see my wav clear to com mute the death sentence imposed upon Dorr," was the governor's statement late Saturday afternoon. The statement was made after Gov. Walsh had spent practically the entire day in reviewing the evidence in the case and in receiving visitors interested in the light Dorr is making for Ins life. His decision, scheduled to be made public at noon,, was delayed by the ar rival of Fletcher G. Plum mer, who had been a government witness at Dorr's trial, and who was the man from whom Dorr bought the automobile by which he was identified. g After considering several telegrams in behalf of the murderer, Gov. Walsh an nounced his decision at 5 o'clock. It was made, it is said, after every mem her of the executive council had declared that he would not favor commutation in the face of the adverse report of the committee on pardons and parole. In his cell in the deathhouse at Charlestown, Dorr was visited by his spiritual advisers, Rev. Arthur K. Har riman of Lynn; by Rev. Michael J. Mur phy and by his attorney, Charles Neal Barney of Lynn. . The latter told him frankly of the unsatisfactory progress of his "fight for commutation, but did not tell h,im to abandon all hope. Gov. Walsh at that time had not made public His decision not to refer the case to the executive council. It has only been with the greatest ef fort that Dorr's supporters have been able to prevail upon his aged mother not to come to prison to see him. They fear that the ordeal may be too much for her, and are inclined to respect the man's expressed wish, that none of his relatives be allowed to visit him. Atty. William H. MeSweenev of Lvnn Saturday mailed checks for $1,500 to thief of Police frank B. Bnare of Stock ton, Cal., for apprehending Dorr. Mc Sweeney represented Briare. One of the checks was for $500 from the city of Lynn, and the other, for $1,000, came from the George F. Marsh Co. of Lynn, with which the murdered man was con nected. Chief Briare caught Dorr in Stockton several days after the crime and he recovered the diary which Dorr wrote to bis aunt. The diary convicted Dorr.

Great in terest in manifested here in the investi gation which Secretary of the Navy Daniels wilt make into aspects of the case of Lieutenant-Commander Charles P. Huff not developed at the time of that officer's court-martial in Norfolk. The secretary is nartieulnrlv an-xinna to learn what facts, if any, lie behind as sertions by Huff's friends that his en counter with J. Philip Kiesecker, which brought on his trial, was really the re sult of attempts by officials of the Now port News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock company to induce Commander Huff to be less rigid in his inspection of the company's work on the new battleship lexas. Lieutenant-Commander Huff was' then acting as inspector of ordinance material tor the lexas and his friends asserted that because of his efficient service the company was under extra expense. Kiesecker, they charged, as head of the correspondence division of the company was aesignatea to reaen nun. In the trial of Commander Huff only one- reference to this situation was made and this was by the Commander E. R. Pollock, who acted as Huff's counsel, who said: . "Huff' efficient work in behalf of the government was costing the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock com pany $3,000 a day, as he was holding up the acceptance of the Texas." . It is probable that in a day or two Secretary Daniels will write to Com mander Pollock and ask him if he meant to insinuate that the shipbuilding com pany was behind the apparent efforts of Kiesecker to establish friendly social re lations with Lieutenant-Coma mnder and Mrs. Huff, which led to the fiftic en counter between the two men.

Some Branches Pay for Themselves and Carry Others Along. New York, March 23. The recent pub lication rof the various college athletic associations' annual financial statement brings vividly to mind again the large sums of money received and expended in the course of a year for the support Of varsity sports and competitions which, because of popular favor and at traction, not only pay , for themselves but carry the burden of others wherein the expenditures-are far ,in excess of all receipts and subscriptions. Some years ago, during the period when football was subjected to a bit ter attack, a famous defender of the game declared boldly that football, de spite all the sins charged agains it, made possible all college sports which the re formers were constantly comparing with the gridiron game, much to the hitter's detriment. That there ha been little change in the situation in recent seasons is clearly evidenced bv these current athletic association financial reports. Football is still the big money-maker and the sport that supplies the funds lor me support of a majority of the other athletic teams each year. Some idea of the amount of money received and disbursed by the football authorities during a season of approxi mately 10 weeks may be gathered from the annual reports of the Princeton and Harvard athletic associations. These financial statements, so far as football is concerned, refer to the season of 1012. but since there is not much deviation from a general average thev serve all practical purposes when used on a com parative basis. Princeton gate receipts for nine games amounted to $07,313, of which $41,033 or more than one-half was received as the Tigers' share of the Vale, Harvard, and Dartmouth games. The six contests with minor colleges netted Princeton but So,37i, an average of less than $1,000 per game. A source of rev enue, in addition to the gate receipts, was the training table, the players pay ing $636 for board,' while the football programs netted $414. Against this revenue were expense amounting to' $.1,04, showing a bal ance of $32,322, far in excess of the net receipts of all other sports combined. 1 he various items of expenditures fur nish an insight into the wide range of activity and outlay necessary in con nection with the staging of a big var sity football campaign. Princeton spent !i.2tl in traveling expenses and gun ran tees given other teams. The services of coaches cost $7,316; suits and supplies, $1,687. Rubbers, physicians, and medi cal supplies required an outlay of $73S. Payments made to those serving lis of ficials at the nine games scheduled amounted to 91,038. Printing, advertis ing, telegrams and telephone bills to talled $32, while the expenses of man ager and captain were set down as $207. One of the biggest items was the repairs and upkeep of the wooden stands sur rounding the football field. $10,423 be ing expended lor this purpose, which ex plains the present egitation for a per manent concrete stadium at Princeton. No other sport at Princeton ap proached these figures either in receipts or expenses. Baseball cost $15,034, while the receipts were $'2;).693, leaving a bal ance of $10,.V. The track and field team showed a net loss of $3.0R2: gym nasium association $208; basketball $402; swimming $714; wrestling $!)1S and rowing $10fi. Hoekry showed a profit of $75, which puts the ice sport in the financial category with football and baseball at . Princeton. At Harvard similar conditions pre vailed. Football receipts amounted to $114,8ti4, against expenses of $30,151, showing that while the Crimson profits were $46,478 greater than at Princeton, the expenses were $5.fll3 less, but it must be taken into consideration that Har vard with its concrete stadium escaped the wooden stand upkeep necessary at Princeton. Baseball at Harvard was a money-maker to the extent of $6,306. while hockey made $312. Rowing showed a net loss of $11,547; track athletics $7.0f2; association football $1.401 : La crosse $2,367, and gymna sties $P0. Washington, D. C, March '23. It is daily becoming more apparent that ac tion on the passage of the bill repealing the exemption clause of the Panama, canal act will be the severest test of President Wilson's strength since he entered the White House. Reports received in Washington indi cate that opposition to the president's program is growing in many- parts ot the country, and the fear is openly ex pressed by administration leaders that if action is long delayed the situation w ill become worse rather than better. Already the controversy has stirred up hard feelings among Democrats who have taken opposite sides on the ques tion, and the debate which will begin in Congress probably on Monday is certain to be one of the most spiritual and bit terest, that has 'taken place in several years. Tammany Hall in Opposition. Tammany Hall is figuring in the op position. It was learned yesterday that Tammany members in the House who have been approached by administration leaders have replied that they intended to vote against the "free tolls" repeal. The belief expressed now is that Tam many is preparing now to even up some of the patronage scores that it has with the Wilson administration. One of the opening guns to be fired against the president's program will be st speech by Leader Underwood in the House. Mr. I nderwood has devoted a lot of study to the tolls question, and his speech is expected to blaze a trail for those who have taken their stand against the administration. On the repeal bill all party lines in the House have disappeared. Republicans. Democrats and Progressives are lined up together in opposition to the adminis tration, and Republicans, Democrats and Progressives have likewise banded to gether to uphold the hand of the presi dent. Offensive and defensive alliances have been formed by men who never before have, made common cause either in a political way or in matters of legisla tion. On the other hand, old-time poli tical associations have been broken, and it is understood that private discussions of the administration bill have reached such a pass that old friendships have been threatened. .

SPORTING NOTES "Evers will strengthen us wonderfully," says President (iatl'ney of the Braves. He is getting into shape gradually, as all vets generally do. But he will be faster than ever when warm weather comes. Evers says that he never played beside a greater shortstop than Maran viile. Deal is covering third base in a clever style and is also hitting the ball. Our real sensation will be Gilbert, the young centerfielder drafted from Mil waukee last year. He is a wonderful player and Stallings is wild about him." Rochester and Montreal, who hnve been hard hit by the Federal league, will be amply supplied with players by the major league clubs. Freddie Parent, the former Boston shortstop, has not yet reported to the Baltimore Internationalists. Manager Jack Dunn has his contract but lias not heard from him for weeks. Frank Oilhooley has not been proving himself to be the same man as was bought last full by the New York High landers. Chance Is very contented with his grist of outfielders and says that unless tiilhooley shows' signs of life he will be worked back into the minors. President Kananaugh of the Southern league has announced the relcase of Um pire William Hart to the National league. Hart, a veteran pitcher, was a teammate of President Tener when the National league president was a player. Mr. Tener wanted to buy him but Pres ident Kavanaugh then gave Hart his unconditional release. , ; Balin, captain of next year's football eleven at Princeton, and Talbott, next season's leader of Yale, have abandoned wrestling for fear they might receive injuries that would incapacitate them from playing next season. The Rutgers football schedule for next fall has been announced. Tufts appears on the list this season for a game at Newark on Oct. 24. Trinity and Wes leyan, New England colleges, have been dropped from, the schedule. 1 i Newport of the Twin State league' is taking active steps even at this period to insure its town a representative ball club during the coming season. The team is managed by Donovan, who grad uates from Harvard this year. Among those signed to play are Krepps, the Tufts pitcher, and Winkler, the former Vermont heaver. Everett Rooe, last year with the Pittsburg Pirates, has signed to play with the Indianapolis club of the Feds this year.
