CHir.VJO, Nov. 22. Thr American
Hnso MnP league met In annual session
here today and!e the avowed state
ment of Charles Comlskey. president of
tin- local club of the organisation, two
dins a (to, that the American league was
on the verge of disruption, today's session
was as hormonlmis as a family reunion.
Routine business occupied the time of the
m.tgnates at today's session and another
meeting will he held tomorrow. 'What
business Is to ronie up for consideration
tomorrow Is problematic. All the members
of the Icncuc tonight seemed averse to dis
cussing the affairs of the organisation.
There, was an apparent feeling of unrest
among the magnates, however, and the
general belief tonight Is tha the proposed
amalgamation of the American and Na
tional leagues will conie up- for consider
ation. Should this proposed scheme be
sprung upon the magnates, tomorrow's
session will be a warm one, as, according
to reports of the proposed plan, should
the deal go through It would leave several
of the t-lubs of which the American league
Is composed out In the cold.
Plan of Amalgamation.
The plan of amalgamation, It Is said by
those In a position to know. Is for a com
bination of the two present melor leagues
into a major and a minor league. In
Boston, Philadelphia and Pt. Louis the
teams of the American and National
leagues are to b consolidated, and In the
other cities where the two leagues re
main the National league ctubs are to be
taken Into the new National league, and
the American league cluba are to be
thrown back Into the minor league, whloh
Is to take the name of "American league,"
hut which Is to belong to class A of the
minor leagues. If this plan should be
carried out It would leave Comlskey of
the Chicago club and Farrell of the New
Tork American league out of the consoli
dation scheme. A knowledge of the pro
posed scheme came to Comlskey only a
few days ago, and this la said to have
caused his attack on President Johnson
Monday night. According to the proposed
amalgamation plan, the new National
league would be made up of eight of the
best cities In tho country, with President
Johnson of the American league aa the
president of the new organization.
One of the prlnclpnl arguments against
the proposed amalgamation Scheme la that
the American league last year enjoyed the
most prosperous season of Its existence.
Nearly all the members of the league
attended today's meeting. The board of
directors first held a meeting In President
Johnson's office and went through the
formality of awarding the pennant to
Playlaar ot Postponed Games.
It was nearly 1 o'clock when the mag
nates got together to take up the business
of the league. The flrat matter considered
was a change In the constitution. After
considerable discussion. It was agreed that
postponed games on the flrat trip must be
played on the aecond trip and that post
poned games on the aecond trip must be
played on the third trip.
Another matter that was definitely Bet
tied was that in the future the ' annual
meetings of the league will be held on
the first Wednesday after the aecond Tues
day In December each year.
T. W. Somers of Cleveland was elected
vice president of the league, and Chicago, I
Washington, New York and Cleveland were
chosen to represent the league op the ruie
committee, which will meet a similar com
mittee of the National league some time
before tho opening of the playing neason
next year and remedy any defects in the
present rules.
Those present at today's meeting were

NEW TOR K. Nov. 22 After being on
the witness stand before the Armstrong
legislative committee on insurance In
vestigation for the greater part of three
days. Gag" F. TarUell. second vice presi
dent of the F.qultnhle Life Assurance so
ciety, finished his testimony today and
Just before adjournment submitted a list
of suggestions for the remedy of existing
abuses in the management of Insurance
companies, and for legislation designed
to give the state proper control over the
companies and to Insure the confidence
nf the policy holders. Prominent among
these suggestions was sbsoluts publicity.
While admitting that wrong had been dona
by life Insurance officials. Mr. Tarbell said
he had no apologies to make for any of
them and thst he hoped they would be
Tarbell Takes Rahatea.
Mr. Tsrbeli was on the atand the entire
day and was questioned as to the system
of agencies and the commissions and other
compensations allowed them for getting
business. Just before the recess the fact
was brought out thst Mr. Tarbell had
taken nut Insuranea on his life and on
members of his family and had received
the agents' commission on the premiums
as well as renewal commissions. He said
that since he became an offlrer he had
taken out fcjln.ftnn on his own life In the
IVlultehle, Resides his policies In tha Equi
table he had taken Insurance In the New
York Life, the arrangement being made
with George W, Perkins, and on this, too,
he received the commission on the premi
ums. He had also a policy in the Aetna
and In the Travelers, on which he col
lected the commissions. He said he carried
Uoo.noo on his own life and W,nOO on mem
bers of his family.
Mr. Tarbell was emphatic In denouncing
the system of rebating by ngents and stated
that any agent of the Kqultable who gave
rebates to get business waa dismissed.
When he told of getting the commissions
Assemblyman Cox asked If that was not
rebating, and Mr. Tarbell said It was not,
that he thought he was entitled to It.
Attempts to Justify Conduct.
Later, when Mr. Hughes took up this
same subject, the witness Justified the
taking of commissions as being similar to
a merchant who purchased goods of a
fellow merchant In the same line, perhaps
to fill an order, snd got those goods at
cost, or of a professional man treating
another and charging less than the regular
fees. Mr. Tarbell further said If he had
done wrong he was sorry, but that he had
acted in good faith.
Mr. Tarbell bore out in a measure the
statement of James H. Hyde when on the
stand relative to the fairness of the Frick
report. The aubject of advances to agents
was under investigation and Mr. Hughes
read some of the figures of the amount
of advances to one agent In this city. Mr.
Hughes asked where the Frlck committee
got the figures, and Mr. Tarbell replied
with marked asperity that he did not know.
"They did not get them from my depart
ment or the auditor's; they made their re
port without ever making an Investigation
of the department" he said.
When Mr. TarbeH was excused he was
followed by Gerald Hrown. who is at the.
head of the bond and mortgage department
of the liqultable. He was examined about
the real estate of the society and was on
the stand when the committee adjourned.
Mr. Tarbell'a Suggestions.
Mr. Tarbell submitted, after reading, a
list of suggestions, among which were:

Midshipman Who Engaged in Tatal Fist
Tight Before Court-Martial
Inaalrr Develops fact that tadels

Ovtn and that Planting
la Prrinrsl.
ANNAPOLIS. Md. Nov. 22 Midshipman
Minor Meriwether, Jr., of Dafajette, Da.,
a member of the third class of tho naval
academy, was put on trial here today be
fore a naval court martial on charges that
Include that of tna nslnughter in having
caused the death of Midshipman James R.
Branch, Jr. of New York, a member of
the class alove him, as a result of a pre
arranged fist flght which took place on the
evening of Sunday, November 6 last.
The sad accident of the death of young
Rrnnrh tinder such circumstances has been
widely noticed, and baa called attention to
tha existence at the naval academy of an
unwritten code governing the student body,
but quite outsldo the authoritative regula
tions, and generally in violation of them.
Under tha "code" every detail of these
fights is fixed, the midshipmen on duty ab
staining from reporting them and excusing
from formation those connected with them.
These facts were very clearly brought out
both by the Judge advocate and In tha
cross-examination by TJeutenatit Com
mander Rnhlson tor the defenaa.
The witnesses today Included Branch's
room-mate, the referee an ft timekeeper of
the conteat and all the four geeonda were
examined In a greater or less degree about
all the circumstances of the fight, the con
nection of the code" and their Ideaa of
their duty under the regulations.
Midshipman A. W. Firth, who refereed
the fight which was followed by Branch's
death, stated that he bad officiated in
nineteen such contests, and Midshipman
McKlttrick testified that he bad taken part
In nine. Detailed accounts were given of
the arrangements by which midshipmen on
duty acquiesced In absences without leave
and other derelictions In order that the
fights might go on, and the testimony also
showed that although frequently severe in
juries resulted from these fights and the
recipients often had to be taken to the
hospital, nothing further was ever heard
of them. This the defense brought out on
cross examination. It being evidently In
tended to show that the authorities also
winked at the code and the prearrange
nient of the fights under It
Hasina; Still In Voarno.
Interesting sidelight to hazing or "run
ning," as It Is called at the academy, de
veloped from the testimony of the midship
men, Meriwether had been generally disliked,
he said, because he was too "ratty." That
is, It whs explained, that he did not abide
by tho rules laid down for tha government
of the lower classmen. Some of these
were that he should never enter "lover's
lane," an academy walk, that he should
turn all corners at right angles, should
not look at an upper classman, and should
answer most respectfully when addressed
