awarded to the Tri-8tate league and to
night the representatives of the U re
maining clubs In the Atlantic league met
and agreed to form an Independent league.
When the board of arbitration met to
day It voted to admit the Trl-State league
to territorial rights In Wilmington, Del.,
and Trenton, N. J., thereby quashing the
application of the newly organised Atlantio
league. Inasmuch aa the application of
the Atlantio league for membership in
cludes these cities, the board decided that
it would not consider the application until
It had been changed, eliminating Wilming
ton and Trenton from the Atlantio league.
Territorial Rights Densed.
Secretary J. II. Farrell stated that the
grounds under which the Trl-Btate applica
tion for the territorial rights was granted
were that the Tri-Btate, though recently
admitted, had a prior claim upon the field,
on account of Its older organisation. A
league standing adjacent to' any territory
may be consulted before that adjacent
territory Is allotted to another league.
Beside settling the Atlantio-Trl-Btate af

The Columbus (O.) club asked for the re

President P. T. Powers presiding.
Next Meeting; la October.
The association made several constitu
tional changes and decided to hold the next
annual meeting In New York on the third
Tuesday in October of this year.
With a view to regulating' salaries and
making them uniform In each league, at
least to the extent of putting a limit on
them, an amendment of article xlli of the
constitution was adopted. This amendment
provides for a maximum monthly salary
limit for each club of the several leagues
below Class A. the classification governed
by population requirements, and to be fixed
by the respective leagues. A statement of
the maximum limit shall bo fixed with
the secretary of the board of arbitration
Immediately after the opening of - the
championship season in each of the leagues
affected and it shall be the duty of the
national board to enforce It.
Enforcing Salary Limit Rale.
Upon complaint of any league club that
certain leagues or club are violating the
prescribed limit it shall be the duty of the
board of arbitration to call a meeting) of
the league of which the offender is a mem
ber and the books be opened for the In
spection of the secretary of the board or
such member thereof aa he may designate.
If It be shown to the satisfaction of such
representative -that the salary limit Is be
ing exceeded, the offender shall be given
Jvn days in which to readjust players' sal
aries so aa to comply with the rule. Fail
ure to comply shall be subject to a fine of
12fi to the offending club for every day until
uch readjustment, the fines to go to the
treasury of the association.
This amendment wipes out the present
section IS. It waa deemed best to author
ise each league to establish its own salary
limit. Inasmuch as conditions differ In
various parts of the country.
The association took a stand the same
as that of the major leagues with refer
ence to post season games, and amends
Its constitution to the extent that no club
shall be permitted to participate in such
games, except under the rules and regula
tions of a board of control, as shall be de
cided upon by the national board of arbi
tration. The national board was glen power to

WASHINGTON. Jan. 10-The house to
day not only was the center of a threat
ened personal encounter between Repre
sentalve Gnlnes (Tenn.) and Represenatlve
Mahon (Fa.), growing out of Mr. Gaines
bill to "dock" members for chronic ab
sence, but it also passed the army appro
priation hill and began the consideration
of the fortifications bill. Several amend
ment were made to the army bill -
The fortifications bill was taken up, but
no progress wa made, the time being
consumed by the statements of Represent
ative Smith (la.). In charge of the bill, Mr.
Fltsgerald (N. T.), who represents the
minority in the appropriations committee,
and Mr. Gaines (Tenn.) In a speech on his
"docking" bill. The house at 4:45 p. m.
The army canteen wa again today un
der discussion In the house of representa
tives. While the army appropriation bill
was up. Representative Worrell (Pa.) In
timated that he would like, to attach a
paragraph doing away with the anti-canteen
law In line with a bill he had Intro
duced In the first session of the Fifty-ninth
Army Officers Favor Canteen.
Mr. Hull (la.). In charge of the bill,
stated that the paragraph would be new
legislation and a point of order would
therefore He against it. He stated, how
ever, that the testimony of army officer
wa almost uniformly to the effect that
the canteen wa a good temperance meas
ure and that it abolition had resulted lo
desertions and a greater degree of drunk
enness. On the other hand, he said, he
wa receiving all the way from 10 to 100
letters a day, whose author are dis
tributed all over the country, contending
that the canteen would be a crime against
society and protesting against its re-enactment
Between' these two widely separate
views It waa the disposition of congress
to let conditions go on as now, providing
the posts with post exchanges and furnish
ing hot coffee.
This gave Mr. Morrell an opportunity to
tell the house some things about the dis
crimination practiced between officers and
men regarding post exchanges.
"If," he said, "the Increase of drunken
ness continues In the army at the present
rate It may becotne a very serious matter
in preventing men from enlisting In the
army." He said the anti-canteen law waa
doing the reverse of what had been an
ticipated. Instead of lessening drunken
ness It was Increasing It and It was driv
ing men out of the army post to low dives.
Gnlnes and Mahon Clneh.
Late this afternoon Mr. Gaines (Tenn.)
and Mr. Mahon (Pa.) were only prevented
from meeting In a personal encounter by
the Intervention of member on the floor
of the house. Mr. Gaines waa making a
speech on his bill to "dock" members' pay
for absence from the house and was being
twitted by both sides of the chamber to
hi evident embarrassment. During his
speech he charged Mr. Mahon with being
absent from the house 96 per cent of the
Previous to this sweeping assertion Mr.
Gaines had read excerpts from the Record
In relation to the withholding of pay in
the Fifty-third congress and the part Mr.
Mahon had played at that time.
Mr. Mahon remained' silent throughout
Mr. Gaines' speech, with the exception of
Interjecting a remark or two at the be
ginning. When Mr. Gaines had concluded
Mr. Mahon rose. He explained how in
the Fifty-third and Fifty-fifth congresses
he had had 17,000 due htm and that Speaker
Crisp had given him an order on the
sergeant-at-arms for the amount, which
waa paid. Then coming to the crux of
Mr. Gaines' charge, Mr. Mahon thundered:
"Any man who charges me with being
away from this house 96 per cent of the
time tells an untruth."
Mr. Gaines started down the alsie from
his seat. "No man can tell me I He," he
Mr. Mann (111.), who was in the chair,
ordered both men to their seats, Mr. Mahon
obeying the command, while Mr. Gaines
stood two seats away from the center of
the chamber shaking both fists and head
at the Ponnsjivanlan.
Mahon Repeats Charters.
When order had been restored Mr. Mahon
again rose. Having been cautioned by the
chair that It was against the rules to ad
dress a member In the second person, he
measured his words, saying he would speak
in the "fourth person." He then said:
"The charge of the gentleman from Ten
nessee that I am away from this house
M per cent of my time Is a deliberate false
hood." With a rush Mr. Gaines reachej the cen
ter of the chamber, making directly toward
the gentleman from Pennsylvania, Insisting
as he went that no man could call him a
liar without personal chastisement.
The rush of Mr. Gaines upon his adver
sary brought a dosen members before the
speaker' desk. Messrs. OUle James of
Kentucky. Taylor of Alabama, Bell of
Georgia, Williams of Mississippi, the mi
nority loader, and Btafftrd of Wlscoraln
grabbed Gaines, who, resisting vigorously,
was borne back to his seat.
Mr. Mahon seemed to wait for the Im
pact which never came. With Mr. Gaines
back In his seat, the Pennsylvanlan made
his speech of explanation as to how he
became connected with the Invoking of
an old statute compelling member to
forfeit pay for the time absent from the
house. He said the charge that he was
away from the house 96 per cent of the
time was a He on Its face and that he
was there 98 per cent of time, as every
member who cared to Inquire could ascer
tain. Oil on Troubled Waters.
Mr. Lacey of Iowa called for the reading
of the statute relating to the docking of
member's pay, and he was followed by ,
Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio, who explained the j
reasons lor ins statute, mr. in jvrmona
of Missouri asked that the minority views
of the Judiciary committee on the statute
When this colloquy wa In progress the
friends of Messrs. Gaines and Mahon were
engaged In an effort to bring about a
reconciliation. In which they were suc
cessful, and at Its conclusion Mr. Mahon
rose to a question of personal privilege.
He stated that he did not desire to im
pugn the motive which prompted Mr.
Gaines to utter what was an untruth about
his absence from the house, but he de
sired to say that his information was In
correct. He had no desire to offend the
gentleman from Tennessee; he classed him
among his friends, but wanted him to
understand the person from whom he ob
tained his Information misrepresented the
Mr. Gaines immediately arose and, show
ing deep feeling, said that the gentleman
from Pennsylvania had always been his
friend, but that he had been goaded be
yond endurance. He regretted extremely
the turn affairs had taken.
Mr. Mahon rushed across the chamber.
The two men clasped hands amid loud ap
plause. Mr. Smith of Iowa facetiously remarked
that "A war had been the subject of the
whole days proceeding, resulting In almost
a personal encounter," he thought the
house was in no temper to proceed fur
ther with the fortification bill and he ac
cordingly moved that the committee rise.
Accordingly at 4:46 p. m. the house adjourned.

Mineral and Metal Production of United States
In It Issue of January E, 1907, the En
gineering and Mining Journal publishes the
accompanying statistic of the production
of the principal metals and mineral sub
stances in 1906, the figures for 1906 being
given In comparison. The year which has
Just closed was one of great prosperity In
the mining industry, and In most branches
of mineral and metal production there were
substantial Increases. The Increases would
have been larger if there had been a suffi
cient supply of labor, the shortage ot which
was a general complaint in nil quarters.
ThiJ was the leading reason for the small
ness In the Increase in the production of
copper. The decrease in the production of
petroleum Is explained by the exhaustion
of certain fields In Texas. The further de
crease In the production of quicksilver is
simply In line with the waning tendency ot
that industry that ha been manifested for
The production of gold In the world is
estimated at $404,649,686, against $37,867,373
In 1905. The production of copper Itt North
America (Including the United States, Can
ada and Mexico) was 1,097,300,000 pound In
1906, against 1,063,582,700 pounds In 19u6. The
Engineering and Mining Journal says:
In the following table we summarize the
production of minerals and metals in the
United Slates in 1900, so far as It has been
possible to collect the statistics at so early
a date. The figures for copper, lead and
spelter are based on reports received di
rectly from the producers, who have com
municated their actual output during the
first eleven months of the year, together
with their estimate of probable production
in December; In many cases the estimates
are for only the laBl few days of Decem
ber. The other statistics are based on the
reports of producers, state rplne inspectors
and special correspondents.
Even under these condition it is impossi
ble to Insure accuracy. Among other difO
culties there are always likely to be dupli
cations or omissions In the reports of the
producers, which can be corrected only by
careful Investigation, Involving considers,
ble time. However, we are confident that
the statistics which we are able to present
at this early date are close approximations
to the truth, and we believe that statistics
giving the production within 6 per cent
of the actual, presented five days fitter the
close of the year, the more valuable to the
liiduntry than statistics that are precise,
or within 1 per cent of the actual, sub
mitted six months or a year later.
It will be observed that there are differ
ences between the statistics given by the
various contributors to this number and
our own statistics. This Is because their
contributions were necessarily written and
put Into type before our statistics were
available, and consequently the statistics
of our contributors are generally estimates.
This explanation will account for discrep
ancies, though the reason will be so ob
vious to our readers that an explanation
is hardly required.
