He took up the early history of the various breeds and showed how they had developed by cross breeding. He also spoke of the value of cross breeding at the present time In improving the sheep on the western ranges and in producing market animals In the corn belt. He especially emphasised the fact, however, that cross breeding is ruinous when Indulged In Indiscriminately and for the production of breeding animals The last number on the afternoon pro gram was a paper written by Mr. Ellis Rail of Birmingham.

POSITION OF WATER COMPANY Glad to See I.rsallty of Bond Iasne Tested. Regarding the suit brought in the United States court by the C. ' B. Nash company of Omaha to restrain the city officials from further proceedings with the Issue of the proposed J600.000 water, works bonds and with the suit brought In the district court to test the legality of the issue, George S. Wright, attorney for the Council Bluffs Citv Water Works company, had this to say yesterday; "We aie glad that this suit has been brought, because it will squarely test In the federal courts questions which are ot vuai Importance to Council Bluffs and all other cities of the state. Whether the 'friendly suit' Instituted in the district court for the city, is or Is not a fraud on the court, and an Imposition, as charged In this case, it does not bring Into Issue all the questions Involved in the situation and could not de termine what the holdings of the federal courts would be on them. The Injunction suit will, as I understand it, test the ques tion of constitutional limitation, aa well as a number of other questions regarding the legality of the bond election and the pro posed Issue of the bands. These questions sre Important, in my Judgment, not merely because of their connection with the water works matter. The question of a sewer age plant for the western part ot Council Bluffs is one which must be dealt witn in the near future, and It is important that the city should know what Its limitations are, and that other doubtful points re garding the Issuance of bonds for the pur poses specified In the statute under which these bonds are proposed, as well as the validity of the statute itself, should bs de termined. "As attorney for the water works com pany, I am anxious that all these ques tions shall be settled. The company has always stood ready to sell its plant to the city whenever the company and city can agree on what is a reasonable price. I think it Is not yet Improbable that the city wBl buy the present water plant. If the people persist in the view that the city ahould own Ita water plant, in such case you can see we should desire as much as anyone that there ahould be no ques tion of the legality of the bonds which are now proposed." MATTERS IN THE DISTRICT COURT uirorce MHT." the First to Start 'Grinding.

O., Jan. 7.-The thres days' session of the National Base BAH commission closed today when the Na tional association of minor leagues agreed to accept the creation of class AA clubs and allow the commission to settle the differences between the two factions re garding the territorial rights 'of the East ern league and the American association. With the reaching of this conclusion every difference that existed when the confer ences began has been sdjnsted. The report of the commission will be Issued within the next five days. Regarding tickets to the world's cham pionship games the commission fixed the maximum price at $2 and the minimum at 60 cents. . The commission also discussed the pos sible chances of bettering the conditions among the "outlaws" on the Pacific coast, and after a conference with J. Calewlng of the Pacific Coast league decided to postpone any action until the next com mission meeting, February 18, at Chicago. The National and American leagues also will meet In Chicago then. The National Association of Minor leagues accepted the resignation of Pres ident P. T. Powers and Director O'Brien. president of the American association. M. H. Sexton, president of the Three-I league, was elected to succeed Powers and Dr. F, C. Carson, president of the Central league, to succeed O'Brien. Terms sf Agreement. By the agreement reached the American association and the Eastern league get all they asked for, excepting a separata organ isation entirely outside of the Notional as sociation. Of their eight requests the other seven were granted by the National associ ation. The organisations, with the Paclfio coast league, hereafter are to be In a clas sification of their own, to be known as AA. They are to have the right to dratt players from the Southern and Western leagues now in class A, as well aa from all the lower clssses. All players drafted by major league clubs from the smaller leagues can not to be sent back to such leagues without first passing through the AA leagues. Ths AA leagues are to be permitted to draft territory from the minors under certain conditions and the number of players to be carried under reserve by major league clubs shall be limited. It was agreed that all Internal affairs of the class AA clubs shall be decided by themselves without reference to the present national board, and that all disputes be tween AA clubs and other minor league clubs shall go first to the board of arbi tration, with right of appeal to the com mission In every case. This makes It Im possible for any dispute to be absolutely decided by the minor league board If It In volves any class AA club. The National association was willing that theve three organisations be placed in a separate organisation as a third party to the national agreement, but the commission would not grant thla request. Quite a number of the base ball magnates left town last night, but most of the minor leaguers remained over until the agree ment reached is signed and certified by the National commission.
