ARRESTED HERE FOR
Shortstop Jack Miller and
Left Fielder Dolan, of St:
Louis Cardinals, Accused
As Jack Miller, shortstop of tho St.
Louis baseball tenm, nnd Albert J. Dolan,
left fielder, stepped from tho b,rcakfast
room In tho Mnjestlc Hotel this morning,
thej wore arrested by Murray Edits, a
constablo of Pittsburgh, on warrants
charging n'ssatilt nnd battery upon Wil
liam D. Gasper, of Pittsburgh,
Both men were hustled to the Central
station and locked up, whllo Huggins,
manager of the Cardinals,' hurrcld nbout
In an effort to get his two plajers out of
a cell that they might pcrfoi m this after
noon In two giinms ngalnst tho Phils.
Both players were on hand nt bnll tlmo.
It Is said by the Pittsburgh police that
Jock Miller wns too attentive to Mrs
William D. Gnpper. Tho woman's hus
band objected. It Is said, after he had
trailed his wife nnd the ball player
through bright lighted refreshment places
Oaspr approached the ball player and
upbraided him. Then Jnck, It Is said,
emote him on the nose. Gnsper fought
back the best ho knew how when ho was
set upon by another boll player. This
man he believes was Dolan of the Cardi
nals. Dolan, on tho other, explained this
afternoon that he had never heard ot
Oaspcr and had nut the pleasure of ever
meeting Mrs. Gasper.
Miller was arrested by the Constnblo
several weeks ago In Pittsburgh, but
excused himself stating that he 'would
hurry through with a few soft-boiled
eggs nnd Join Edlls Immediately. Whllo
Edlls waited and wandered at the ap
petite of the plajcr. Miller was board
ing a train for home. Ho kept out of
Pennslvnnla until the present trip here.
Gasper, who was separated from his
wife, believed that she was receiving
tho attentions of Miller. His suspicions
were Increased when he found a pair of
trousers belonging to Miller In the room
of Mrs. Gasper. Ho Identified the
trousers by finding. It Is said, a cheek
for one month's pay drawn In favor ot
Gasper accused his wife of friendliness
with the ball player. Sho made no de
nial nnd then Gasper tialled the two,
with the result that he wns badly pum
mcled by tho athletic escort of Mrs.
Gasper. Huggins was about as busy a
man as any In Philadelphia Just two
minutes after the arrests occurred. It
was not until after the bats begnn to
praek at tho Phllly's grounds that he
assumed a normal state of mind.
Both his players had then been held
under $800 ball each for a hearing in
Allegheny County. Huggins did not
have $1600 in his hip pocket, but In his
coat he had a fountain pen and a check
book. He gave a certified check for
J160O and hustled his errant players back
to the ball park In an automobile.

Several sections of Rheims aic re
ported to have been set on fire from
bursting shells, which were directed
against the French troops In that city.
This report is contradicted, unoffi
cially, from Bordeaux In this state
ment: Rheims ii no longer threatened
by the Germans, who bombarded
It on Thursday. According to word
received from the front, the Ger
mans have withdrawn their artil
lery at that point toward Chateau
Porclen, and the Infantry has fallen
back with the supporting guns.
Unofficial estimates place the Ger
man losses at 100,000 men, nnd the
allies at half that number a total ot
130,000 In killed, wounded and missing.
The fighting on the left, where com

In Intensity, but the allied lines are
slowly being pushed forward, accord

positions constructed In the rear of

creased. But at no point have thoy
actually been defeated.
Along the rest of the lino the great
battle continues as an artillery duel.
There has been almost no fighting hy

An English correspondent who has
succeeded In getting through from
Rheims gives the following account or
the situation near that point:
