AVnshlngton, Nov. 13.
Thero seems to be a hitch In the pro
posed United States mediation In the
Chinese-Japanese war. It Is under
stood that mi notification has yet been
received from Japan of the acceptance
of the United States otlicer of media
tion, though that proposition was
cabled to Minister Pun. to be present
ed to the government at Toklo on Nov.
6. China, to whom, through Minister
Denby, the same proposition was made
on the same day, is said to have given
a reluctant assent, as It is understood;
hamperd by conditions which do not
stem to have been compiled with.
Frequent Interviews have been had
within the. past few days between
Secretary Oresham and the Chinese and
Japanese ministers, but whatever may
have been accomplished by these con
ferences, it Is quite clear today that no
agreement has been arrived at which
contemplates a suspension of hostili
ties on the part of Japan, and no such
agreement would seem to be Im
mediately in prospect. There Is an im
pression prevailing in diplomatic circles
that the offer of mediation on the part
of the United States may fail of Its ob

respondent of the Central News says
that the Emperor of China received the

Yokahoma, Nov. 15. The newspapers

They say that Great Britain's influence

offer, which wounds Japanese feeling.

By the United Press".
Pittsburg. Nov. 13. William H. Daw
son, a merchant of Smith's Ferry, near
here, was fatally shot yesterday by a
trap gun set In his store to shoot burg
lurs. The store has been burglarized
several times of late, und every at
tempt to capture the thieves has
proved futile. Dawson arranged a
loaded shotgun with a system of wires
attached so that a person walking
about In the store at night would dis
charge the gun and receive the loads
from both barrels.
Yesterday morning as he was opening
the store for business he accidentally
tripped on one of the wires and was
fatally shot. One arm was nearly torn
off and his abdomen was terribly lac
crated. He died on the train while
being brought to a hospital in this city.

Whereas, The Individual operators on

consistently restricted their coal ship

interest, and this course having, fulled

that in case the price of coal at tide
water points becomes so low that it
precludes the possibility of n fuir profit
to the producers, that t'oxe Bros. & i'oi

The Individual anthracite coal opera
tors think this policy will bring the
coul carrying corporations to a real
izing sense of their obligations to other
producers, und that, at least, It will
prevent the commercial Iniquity of forc
ing a dealer in an interior town to pay
50 cents per ton for the same quality
and the same quantity of anthracite
coal, more thun a dealer In a seaport
town has to pay, simply because the
interior dealer is not protected by tide

further said that the enforcement of
such a policy as contemplated by tip?
Individual operators would, In a single

BASE BALL HATES MEET
Members of the National and Eastern
Leagues in Session.
ABOUT- PERCENTAGE SYSTEM
The l ittle Clubs Give I p Rich Kcvcnue.
Uuffalo's Club Will Hemaln in the I a st

for the I'ncertuin Club,
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. 13. The corridors of
the Fifth Avenue hotel were crowded
again with base ball men when tho
National league begun the second day
of its annual fall meeting. All of the
members were present.
President Young was seen by u
United Press reporter Just before he
called the meeting to order today and
emphatically denied that here hud been
any suggestion of a split, or that there
was possibility of any such uctlon on
the part of the members of the league.
"There is no foundation whatever," he
said, "for such a report. Tho twelve
elul that form the league ure hound
together for ten years, and the idea of
u split has never been contemplated,
und Is mere. Idle talk."
The western delegates sat around the
hotel discussing the question of divi
sion In the league with much earnest
ness. They all said there was nothing
whatever in tho reported split in tho
National league. In connection with
the S-club league rumor, It was said
that If possible a place was to be made
in the league for the Buffalo dub, now
of the Eastern league.
This rumor of Bufl'ulo's entering tins
National league was positively denied
this morning by President Powers, of
the Eustern league. "Buffalo will stay
in the F.aslern league," said Mr. Pow
ers. "She Is making more money than
she would as a sixth or seventh place
club in the National. Besides, did she
desire to withdraw from the Eastern
und enter the National league, she could
not. She bus agreed and arranged to
stay where she Is."
1 he Perceuiugc System.
The greater portion of today's meet
ing of the National Base Ball league
was taken up in adjusting the percent
age system. The big dubs did ull In
their power, but could not make the
small clubs yield to their u and 40
per cent, proposition. This scheme hu'i
to be finally abandoned and another
tack taken. This was to strike out
Section 4 of the constitution, which re
quires each dub to put 10 per cent, of
their receipts of each game Into the
general fund that was divided among
the clubs ut the end of each month.
The little clubs were well provldid
for by the above section and were ear
lied along and virtually supported by
theblgdubs. They realized the fact that
they would have to concede somotllllie;
to prevent hostilities and they wern
finally persuaded to agree to do away
with the system of paying 10 per ecu:,
into the general trustify to be divided
monthly, lu order to accomplish l.V.s
Section 4 wus stricken out und a cluttse
added to Section 4S to make it read as
follows: "Section 4S The general ad
mission fee to all championship gt.me.4
shall be 50 cents, but each club shall
designate u part of Its grounds nn.1
provide seats thereon, the admission fee
to which shall be 1!'. cents and all divi

I A committee of three wus appointed
to receive and consider any amend
ments to the playing rules nnd submit
the same to the league at Its meeting
in the spring. The committee consists
of Ned Hahloii, F. D. Robinson und
James A. Hurt.
