Opinion From Attorney General
John C. Bell Raises Ma
jors' Hopes
''fiteiai to The Telegraph
iSew York, Jan. 31. The first real
hope for the National League recover
ing baseball stars from the Federals
came in an opinion from John C. Bell.
Attorney General of Pennsylvania,
given out following a conference with
John C. Toole, author of the reserve
clause, at which the contracts and re
serve clause were carefully scrutinized. ]
Mr. Bell declared that the stipulation
of a portion of the salaries named foi
the privilege of holding an option on a
player's services are valid.
Under the exlsltlng conditions it will
be possible for the National League to
demand the return of Joseph Tinker,
Mordecai Brown, Otto Knabe and other
players who have lined up with the
Federals. The contention of Mr. Bell
opens the path to the court for both
National and American League club [
owners who have loßt players in the I
expansion of the Federal League.
After a meeting in National League [
headquarters, which was attended by
Messrs. Bell and Toole, John A. Heyd
ler, secretary of the National League;
D. Leßoy Reeves, baseball secretary to
Governor John K. Tener, president of
the National League, Mr. Bell said:
"The present contract in use by the
major league is absolutely binding."
Mr. Reeves said that the conference had
firmly established faith of the club
owners in the reserve clause and thai
he was of the opinion that the contracts
would be declared valid in any court.
Prom the new angle which major
league solons now view the situation,
the Federal League has no basis for
action against the National League or
organized baseball.
In both the lvillifer and Kirkpatrick
cases the attorneys in conference con
tend that the Federal League claim
against the players is shattered by the
existence of the reserve clause in the
contracts under which the playqers
served in the National League last
A man, who has been mentioned as
backer of a Federal I>eague team in
New York for 1915 said that the Fed
eral League would take up a tight
against organized baseball on the claim
that the present contracts will not
hold. It was declared that the ten-day
release clause which gives club owners
a right to terminate a contract at any
time made the contracts one-sided.
John O. Toole insisted that no contract
could be more binding. •

Thinking of Quality
These days, most men when they think of a smoke, think of
King Oscar 5c Cigars
It's the way quality always affects the mind. Its influence
* is simply irresistible. Think of soap, silver, flour and what
not and the quality kinds are the ones you instinctively
think of.
It's a good thing, too.
Local Bowlers Are
in Very Bad Repute;
Lebanon Is Sore
Harrisburg bowlers arc in bad re
pute at Lebanon, according to the
following letter received from Edward
Matthews, manager of the Casino
bowlers at Lebanon:
"What Is the matter with the Har
risburg bowlers? is a question that is
being asked among the lovers of bowl
ing in Lebanon. Is it a case of cold
feet or are they just simply scared,
or simply afraid of losing their repu
tation ?
"A few weeks ago the Casino team
of Lebanon bowled the Harrisburg
boys on their own alleys with the un
derstanding that a return game was to
be bowled January 2 3 at Lebanon. In
the meantime the Harrisburg boys
evidently found out that they were
due for a trimming and decided the
best thing to do was to call the game
off. which they did with the flimsy ex
cuse that two of their men were sick,
notwithstanding the fact that the Leb
anon team bowled them on their own
alleys\with only three of their regular
team, yet they take this loophole to
escape the trimming, which they evi
dently expect to receive.
"In a telephone conversation held
with the writer they promised to play
on January 30; instead now they come
with another flimsy excuse that one
of their men has two boils on his
neck. It seems to the writer that any
excuse at all just so we can get out of
bowling the boys.
"It surely is not a matter of expensta
for the writer told them over the
phone on Thursday that we would
send an automobile up for them if
they would only bowl us when they
arrive here, and they promised to let
us know by 7 o'clock Thursday even
ing. but evidently their memories
failed them as their nerve must have
fniled them on the previous engage
"Trusting that the fair-minded
sports of Harrisburg will understand
this is not a knock, but only a desire
to show that the Dutch team of Leb
anon can bowl as well as talk, we
beg to remain."
Garnets Come Here
For Game Tonight
Harrisburg tossers will give the Gar
nets, of Philadelphia, something real
in basketball work at the Armory to
night. This game is one of the most
important on this season's schedule.
The Garnets played at Wilmington last
night, winning by a score of 29 to 28.
Harrisburg has made good with the
patrons this season and there are still
better attractions coming, Including
the Eastern League stars. The game
to-night will start at 8.15 and will be
followed with dancing. The line-up

Connie Mack to Pick Manager
According to John H.Myers
Reading Backer Arrives in Reading and Hands Out Base
ball Cheer; Reserve Players
Special to The Telegraph
Reading, Pa., Jan. 31.—That Read
ing will have the best team in the
Tri-State League and will be a. farm
for the Philadelphia Athletics was the
emphatic declaration of John H. My
ers, of Lancaster, who is president of
the local organization. He visted this
city yesterday to look over the situa
tion for the racing of the former At
lantic City franchise, here. President
Myers said: •
"Owing to the war between the
big leagues and the newly-organ
ized Federals, which prevents the
owners from making definite nego
tiations with me for the securing of
a big league player to take hold of
the Reading team, I am unable to
state at the present time who will
manage the club. But I can give the
assurance that the manager will be.
Won From Maroon and Gray Af
ter Hard Fight; Rote
the Star
In a game that was featured with
brilliant floorwork by both teams,
Ceneral High last night defeated Tech
High, score 24 to 12. Rote was the
one particular star who had Tech up
a tree throughout the battle. Only
twice did the plucky boy fail to break
Tech's guarding.
In the opening half Tech was out
played most of the time. Professor
Grulib's boys appeared to bo suffering
from stage fright, but they pulled to
gether in the second half and gave
Central their hardest battle of the
season. This victory adds to the gen
eral opinion that Central will quit the
season scolastic champions. It was
the first game with Tech, the next hat
tie to take place on Central floor in
There were roughhouse periods
during which Referee Guyer, of Leb
anon Valley College, one of the best
officials who has ever directed a game
in Harrisburg, was kept busy calling
fouls. The men who were prominent
with Rote were Gerdes, Yoder and
Fisher. Beck. Ebner and Tittle were
Tech stars. As an added feature the
Central scrubs defeated the Tech
scrubs, score 16 to 14. The line-ups
and summaries follow:

During the year the Motor Ciuti
paid out S2OO in the interest of good
ronds and $l3O in entertaining 300
procured from Connie Mack, and
he will be a playing manager. Three
men, prominent in the baseball
world, are being considered."
It has been intimated that Bill
Coughlin, the veteran baseball pilot,
who brought a pennant to Reading
in 1911, in the Tri-State, is considered
for the management. When queried
on this subject, Mr. Myers would
neither verify or deny the report.
Couhlin recently secured his re
lease from Allentown, which he man
aged last season, and is now a free
Mr. Myers stated that in all events
Reading would be the farm for the
Philadelphia Athletics and that the
local team would secure all the sur
plus players on the world champions'
team, besides one or two other big
.league clubs.

On© afternoon In Santiago there
was a parade of employes on a strike
I do not know whether the strike.
Itself was justified or not. Companies
of troops, mounted and on foot, ac
companied the strikers "to preserve
tranquillity." A squad of women fac
tory workers led the parade. Most of
them were girls, but a number were
older women. During a pause, when
the procession halted a moment, I
asked one of these older women whai
her wages were. "Thirty-eight cents
a day, senor." "Have you any chil
dren?" "I have four. lam a widow.
We live with my mother, who is also
a widow. She works, too."
Yet it must not be understood that
the Chilean government is indifferent
to the welfare of its larboring classes.
The government has taken hold of tin
question of providing suitable houses
for wor.klngnien, and this phase of
the general welfare movement has
been made a matter of national policy.
