SEXTON CALLS A MEETING Of National Board of Arbitration to Paw on the Action. The Pacific Coast league has prac tically come into organized baseball. but it does not come into the National Association of Minor Leagues on the same footing as tne, other members. The Pacific league, which embraces six clubs on the coast, will enter into harmony with the eastern organiza tions provided it is agreed that its re serve list be respected. In return it will recognize the re serve H.-tH of the Aationai and Amer ican leagues and tr.e general rules of the minor league association. This question Ned Hanlen will bring up for discussion before the National Asso ciation of Minor Leagues, which he represented at the meeting in San Francisco, r n his return east. There is no doubt but that the conditions will be accepted. This was the result of the meeting between Han .lohnson, .Tames A. Hart and Ne:l Ilanlon on the side of eastern organized baseball, and Messrs. Hert, Harris aril Morley, if the Pacific Coast league. When the meeting ad journed it was felt by all the eastern members of the conference that the Pacific Coast league had practically' joiner! the National Association of Minor Leagues. Mr.tlne In Called. M. H. Sexton, of this city, chairman of the national board of arbitration. lias issued a call, for a special meeting of the board, to be held at the Hol lender hotel. Cleveland, Feb. 23. This meeting will consider the terms of the peace agreement entered into yes terday at San Francisco between the representatives of organized baseball and representatives of the Pacific Coast (outlaw) league. Several other matters of vital importance 1o minor leagues will also he disposed of at this meeting. The members of the hoard are: M. II. Sexton. Nock Islam!, chairman; T. H. Miirnane, Iloston. Mass.; James II. O'Uouike. Diidge port. Conn.; Judro W. M. Kavenaugh. Little Hook. Ark.; W. H. Lucas, la coma. Wash.; .1. H. I'airell, Auburn, X. V., secretary of the board. t I' Ue Stage. Feb. 3 Sam T. Jack's Burlesquers. Feb. 4. "Just Struck Town." . Fob. 3. "York State Folks.' The monotony of musical comedy was broken by a Shakespearean offer ing at the Illinois last evening. Hut it does not appear that the patrons of the theatre are losing any sleep over the death of serious productions, for even such a far-famed actor as Charles 15. I Ian ford was unable to at tract an audience of respectable pro portions. "Hit-hard III." was present ed and in a manner' that was highly creditable an I deserving of a full house. Aside from the acting, which was faultless throughout, the tcenic in est it lire and costuming were on a scale of lavishness seldom witnessed in a Shakespearean road production. Comment on Mr. Hanford's interpre tation of Kichard, one of the most villainous of the many characters pictured by the bard of Avon, would be superfluous. 1'or there are few fol lowers of Ihe drama in the city who have not seen him in one of the trage dy roles he has been enacting for the past 2.1 years, having appeared in sup port of Booth, Karrett and others whose memories shine in the theatri cal firmament. He is every inch the artist, and nowhere is this displaced to better advantage than in the vary ing moods called for in the character of Kichard. There was a large com pany in his supjxirt. headed by Mfss Marie Drofnah. a most capable act ress. I.ooal theatre patrons are t have another 1 pportunity to see that pret tiest of all rural plays. "York State Folks." This charming story of typi cal 'American village life made a really remarkable impression upon its last visit, both because of the uncon ventional realism of the story and character drawing, and the very un usual attention given to perfection of detail in the mounting of the scenes. "York State Folks" takes rank as the foremost -f American plays in. these respects. The story of the play ap peals irresistibly to all classes because of the truthfulness of human nature which it depicts. Its comedy and ;ts imthos are absolutely true to life, and it is the sense or reality which im presses all who see it. Many of the scenes are actually impressive in their simple naturalness, and the artist who designed them accomplished what none of. his predeo-essors have ever before succeeded in doing to such a dogiee. Those who saw the production here have talked so much about It. D 4 and those who did not have expressed such a desire to see it, that Manager Oomaan has secured "York State Folks" for next Fridav evening. The seats for this engagement will be tacea on sale this morning, and it is I expected that the advance sale wi.'r.bel large. ifte attraction at the Illinois this evening will be Sam T. Jack's own bur lesque company an3 there is no ques tion but that there will Toe an ava lanche of fun and jollity from the fact that this company Is fully equip ped with, a class of talent that should make the performance go fast and furious. In the company there will be found 20 bewitching damsels that can sing, dance and pote. The comedy ele ment is said' to be more than clever and ample opportunities- are civen to how the eccentric drollery. The bur lesques, and there are two of them one called "A Nijrht at the Circus" and the other "The Keyal Princess, are new and original, and entirely out of the regular rut. The olio is exception ally strong and novel, furnished bj well-known members of the vaudeville. profexfion. During the action of the burlesque, there will be introduced the famous Ianee-du-Froliqne. bv eight French dancers, and it is n serteil that they are bound to cre ate a furore. .Tule Walters new play. "Just Struck Town." with an excellent cast will be produced here tomorrow ev ening. The p!a- has the wonderful flood scene in the second act. without a o'oubt one of the most sensational s:n:i exciting scenes now being pro duced. The streef fair, thT fight in the mansion, the breaking of the old dam are a few of the many other scenes- to be seen. New scenery and specialties- are also carried. Popular prices. . A I llaymnn, Klavv 5c l.rlanger. rep resenting the big theatrical syndicate, and Stair & Havlin. who control 100 popular priced playhouses in the vari ous cities, have combined interests. The syndicate agrees that all its pop ular priced theatres shall be booked by Stair & Havlin. and the latter agree not to give the use o. their theatres to high priced stars or companies. '1 he contract stipulates that Stair & Ifavlin's Majestic theatre, in New York, and either the (llobe theatre or 'the Majestic theatre, in Iloston, are to retain high prices, and that the syndi- .A A . . SI eaic win c penile wit 11 iair v nav- liu in booking these two houses. The object of the agreement is to form at lice a local managers' association in e::oh cily of the country to regulate the local situation. In such cities as lluffalo, Cleveland. St. Louis, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Denver, San Francisco, Ilrooklyn. Washington, Dal timore, and interior points they con trol practically nil theatres excepting burlesque anil vaudeville houses, and in most cases these theatres arelo included in the managers association which is to be formed. The . parties to this new "combine" state that such theatres as the Tremont, in Iloston. or the (irand opera house, in Chicago, and theatres in New York which are not included in the syndicate, will ip in any way lie excluded lrom doing business with either one tif the par ties. The agreement covers a period of seven years. FINISH THEIR SENTENCE: HABEAS CORPUS IS DENIED John Wagner. Henry KirschofT, James Murray, D. C. Nichols, William P.ellmond, J. J.O'llrien and TV. E. Phil lips were released today from the county jail, where they have been serving a month's sentence for vagran cy. Judge tiraves denying the writ of habeas corpus asked in their behalf by their attorney? J. F. Witter. The court announced his opinion yester day afternoon. The sentence of the prisoners expired this morning. The, seven men were arrested in 1 he I'.aker lodging house on Third avenue, near Twenty-fourth street, by the po lice early one morning, all sleeping in one room. The police had been tal bing the fellows since their arrival from Chioagn 11 few days previous. They were suspected of being crooks and of having a hen on. but as the police did not have any direct evi dence against them, the best they could do was to charge vagrancy. The habeas corpus proceeding was commenced r.rt the ground that ihe mittimus was insufficient, the defend ants not having signed a jury waiver, as required by law. Judge ('raves held that they had been sentenced by a competent court of criminal juris diction and that they should reliihln at the jail until the expiration of the terms they were sent down for.

ANOTHER PLEASED CROWD AT SHIFF'S INDOOR CIRCUS The second performance of Shipp's circus at the rink on Si.te?nth street last evening attracted another large and well pleased crowd, the cold weathtT seemingly nof TWTving any ef fect on the attendance. Mr. Shipp i the "ringmaster." He has worn his "swallow tail" coat. cracked his long whip, answered the quips of the clowns and directed the movement of the exhibitions in the three-rings at one time for so long a period that he couldn't be bribed to stay put. Of course the indoor circus opens with a bantl concert, by IJleu- er s band, and of course there is a grand entree," followed by the equine ballet, a conceit now popular with all the great shows and which was origi nated by Mr. Shipp. The same white horses are ridden into a regulation sized ring, built in the center of the rink of dirt, laid on planks and cinders and covered with clean sawdust. The ring must be of exact Iyta ndard size, else both horses and riders are thrown out of pitch. And the beauty of it is that the audience doesn't have to look across a block of ground to see the ring; there is no "hippodrome track" between the ring and the seats. The great room is brilliantly lighted and if the performer's costumes were not all spotlessly clean the slightest soiled place would, be seen. Hut ev erything iss clean, new- and just as good as Barnuni. Forepaugh or the Ringiings would have. Anil there isn't a vord or action on the part of any performer that even a Sunday school sunerinteiHient could take exception I to. That's why Shipp's indoor cir cus always draws wherever it goes; that's why the press of the cities vis ited always feel obliged to say the kindest possible things of Ed Shipp and the people who comprise his com panies. Tastes differ so widely that no one person could possibly decide what is the Le.-t feature of the big show. One spectator does not like to watch the trapeze and aerial work it. makes him shudder to think of thr-langer; an other does not like the contortionist work it reminds him of a snake, and so 011 through the list. F.nt there are features enough to please all and some that cannot fail to delight cveryboiy in the indoor circus. Miss Lowande. queen of equestriennes. doe a regula tion ring act. except that she wears a long skirt instead of the abbreviated eo.-tume of the majority of circus ri ders. Mile. Annette, one of the bright est stars on the flying rings that the circus vvcrld affords, is just as pretty as when she was first seen, and much more clever. The Da Co ma family need no introduction. Their lofty tumbling act is stronger than ever and their quadruple return act, mid-air somer-s.-ultg acros the entire arena, is en tirely new and starting. John Koon ey. undoubtedly the world's greatest bareback rider, is out for new honor this year, and he is preparing to in troduce a feat new to the circus world, a backward somersault from the back of one horse to that of anoth er following at ful! gallop behind. This act is alone worth the price of adraisfiiin and will place Mr. Rooney j in a class by himself. The double! yaultinsr exhibition of John and Carrie iKooney is also clever in the extreme. Signer Ponsol and his wrestling Kus sian bear ccme in for a good share of the applause. The big bear has beei taught to do a number of interesting tricks, but the wrestling act is a won der, appreciated only by tho who can realize that with one tierce hug the big brown brute could end the life of the strongest- man. Hurt Mayo, his educated stallion and trick mules give the real circus flavor to the even uitr's entertainment. A new and stel lar feature of the program is Paseatel the man with 1U0 forms, who does an artistic posturing act seated on thtr six inch cap of a 10-foct pedestal and closes with a remarkable exhibition on the trapeze. Miss Mattie Carroll does. a clever slack wire act. dancing the cakewalk. jumping over high objects. through hoops and riding a bicycle. Pete Hell and a number of somersault artists introduce some sensational spring-board acts, turning over horses. Steve Miaco. Phil King and (ieorge Zammeit, the clowns, mix up their work in an effort to to please both yonng and old, and Frank Smith, the psirie-down man. holds the audience breathless with his startling exhibi tion, standing upon his head on the bar of a swinging tape.e. STRUCK BY FLY WHEEL AND SERIOUSLY INJURED The drive wheel of a gasoline engine at w hich he was working in his black smith shop at Coal Valley yesterday ifternoon breaking off struck Hugh Martin a terrific blow in the abdomen. inflicting a gash that exposed the in testines, and gave fears that he was mortally wounded. However, towards night he improved, and the announce ment was made today that he would recover. Mr. Martin is 2S years of age, married, and a brother of Mrs. George Dennett, of this city.
