MAY END BALL WAR
Pacification of Western League
and American Association
MAGNATES MEET IN NEW YOEK
M. II. Sexton Elected Chairman of
v the National
The Three-1 league was honored nt
the meeting of the National Associa
tion of Haseball leagues, in New York
last week, by the election of M. II.
Sexton, of Rock Island, as chairman
of the new national board. A number
of new regulations for the fourteen
or so minor leagues in the associa
tion were proposed at the meetings.
In his report Secretary Farrcll made
a number ' of recommendations re
garding the propriety' if fixing a sal
ary for minor league players. An
other recommendation is calculated
to rnise the tone of the national
game. Mr. Farrell proposes that a
player reported for drunken or ois
orderlv conduct the second time hnll
ue declared Ineligible to play with any
national association club for the bal
ance of the season.
Ijooklng; tor Peace.
The main object of the members of
the national board in remaining in
New York after the annual meeting
of the association had been adjourned
became apparent yesterday when a
number of conferences were had le-
tween the members of the board and
the principal backers of the Western
league and the American association.
It is with the hope of patching up the
difficulties existing between these two
organization that the members stayed
there. It was said last night that the
efforts at bringing about a settlement
of the war would undoubtedly be suc
Presidents Price, of Columbus, anil
Watkins, of Indianapolis, of the
American association, were in con
ference with members of the board
at the Hotel Victoria nearly all day.
in the evening they were joined by
President T. W. Van llrunt, of the St.
Joseph club, of the Western league.
Mr. Van llrunt is the monied mau of
this league anil has advanced the lar
gest part of the finances for the car
rying out of the war that has proven
disastrous In both the Western league
and the American association during
the past season.
One Clab In City
The scheme for the adjustment of
the difficulties as mapped out calls
for the withdrawal of the Western
league clubs in both Kansas fitv and
Milwaukee and the turning over of
these two cities to the American, as
sociation. At the same time the pro
moters of the Western league teams
in these two cities are to be taken
care of to the extent that they may
be given an interest in the American
association teams or they may be re
warded financially outright.
With the withdrawal of the West
ern league clubs from both these cit
ies the way would be clear for a har
monious adjustment of all difficulties
and the American association would
then apply for and receive protection
under the national agreement of the
National association, coining in as a
class A organization, on a par with
the Kastern league. The Western
league could take in two smaller cit
ies or stand witji a six-club circuit
and come in as a class 11 or class V
organization under the- national

Rock Inland Citizen Got Kid of It.
Comes early, stays late. No stran

know how hard it is to shake it off.
You would like to know how to do
it. Let a Uock Island man tell you.
Read his statement that follows:
F. K. Jenkinson, of 1123 Third av
enue, employed in the foundry on
the island, says: "I had itching
hemorrhoids, and although I used a
number of different remedies, none
of them did me the least permanent
good. I saw Doan's Ointment adver
tised and got a box at the Harper
house drug store. I must confess I
had little faith in it, as I had tried
so many different preparations in
vain; but to my surprise after using
Doan's Ointment three days the irri
tation left me. I continued the
treatment until I had finished the
box, when I was cured."

IN SOLD LEES' HOME THIS TIME
Complaints or Children Occasion
Bloomington, 111., Oct. 27. Much in
dignation is expressed over charges
of cruelty to children in the Soldiers'
and Sailors Orphans home here. The
alleged cases of ill-usage are cited by
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander (Jeer, of Dan
ville. They were here last week and
removed their children, two little
girls, Jessie, aged 7, and Hazel, aged
Mr. an;l Mrs. (leer lived in Bloom
ington rntil a year n&o, and then
moved to Danville, the former being
given a position in the dining depart
ment at the home for old soldiers in
that city. The present superintend
ent is Col. R. S. McCauley, of Richland
county. He was an .appointee- of Gov.
Tanner, J'.n l (io. Yates has retained
Mr. ami Mrs. (Jeer say that the old
est girl was forced to bend over a
stool, that her Vack was bared until
the skin was revealed, and that an
attendant then whipped the child
with a section of garden hose, two
feet in length. The deep, red welts
are still to be seen, and were exhibi
ted to the neighbors by Ihe parents
as proof of the harsh treatment. The
reas:n for the punishment was said
to be some slight infraction of the
Instance of Cruelly.
The children say that the same
teacher seized the youngest (laugh
ter, Jessie, by the hair, grabbing out
a handful, and then punished the lit
tle one in the same manner, except
that the instrument used was a heavy
leather thong, about three inches
wide and eight inches long, which
was attached to a wooden handle.
The child was whipped upon the bare
back, as was her sister.
The children say that the practice
of lifting inmates by their cars and
dropping them into a seat is common,
the acth.n being followed by a threat
to "punish them within an inch of
their life" if a sound is heard from
Complaint a to Fare.
The children also complain of the
slim fare, saying that only the sim
plest and cheapest viands are served,
and without any variety, while the
teachers and other attendants have
delicacies, such as ice cream, pudding
a nil fruit. Mr. and Mrs. (Jeer hac

and the people who know them say
that they have no object in making
false statements. Roth are hard

demand here that the charges be investigated.

every heart that pains, flutters,
palpitates, skips beats, and
every heart that causes fainting
spells, shortness of breath or
smothering, is weak or diseased,

"My heart was very weak and
kept Bkipplng beats until It

the result would be if this trouble
was not stopped, I began taking
Dr. Miles Heart Cure, and two
bottles brought the heart action
