PROSPECT OF ANOTHER OUTLAW LEAGUE Tot Cities la Atlaatle Lesiarwe Given to Trl-Btate ib! Rrmalaln Clak Owiin Will Oraraslse Iss'eaieaa'est tge. NEW YORK. Jan. 10.-The National As sociation of Base Ball Clubi adjourned to day without taking any action on the draft by the Western league of the city of Topeka from the Western association. This leaves the question of an eight-club circuit for the Western league up In the air unless a special meeting of the asso ciation can be called or another plan de vised for placing soma other city in the Western league. The cities of Wilmington and Trenton. claJmed by the new .Atlantio league, were 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 fair, the board dlspoeed of a number of minor cases. The board decided that all player In the Pacific league prior to the Ban Francisco earthquake last spring, unless they have been sold, drafted or released In writing, hall revert to the Pacific Coast league. Under the stress of the earthquake diffi culties many of the players left the coast and have not returned. The Columbus (O.) club asked for the re turn of $300 draft money spent by it in the effort to draft a player named Fohl from the Youngatown (O.) club. Later the Co lumbus club found that Fohl was not eligible to draft. The application of a player named Car male to have his name stricken from the re- servo list of the Austin, Tex., club was granted. The claim of the Dallas, Tel., club filed against Player Tate of the Rloux City, la., club for $13 advance money waa disal lowed. With the conclusion of all business the board adjourned and the delegate to the National association met in final session. 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. Poat-Seaaoa Games. 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 Impose penalties for offenses against this amendment. The board passed a resolution putting all players who are ineligible to play In the association In the eligible list of the Trl-State league. Provision was made for the trial of play- era and umpires against whom charges may be made. In article xxvll, an Insertion was made Imposing a penalty of $30 for Invasion of territorial rights. Defeated In their attempt to secure pro tection from the Nations! Association of Base Ball Leagues, the presidents of the six clubs comprising the new Athletic league held a meeting tonight and formu lated plans for an Independent league. The Athletic league, It waa announced at the conclusion of the meeting, will contest the Tri-State league, which secured the pro tection the Atlantic league failed to obtain. boats are left to the executive committee of the exposition.

Pat terson, formerly of the Fourth Iowa cav alry and Twenty-ninth Iowa Infantry and more recently consul general at Calcutta. Pennsylvania Member Arrases Mas from Tennessee of Fnlsehood and Fore Only Prevents Phys leal Eneoaater. 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. adjourned. 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 congress. 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 time. 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 exclaimed. 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 be printed. 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 fact. 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. LAFOI.LETTE BILL IS PASSED Senate Approves Measure Limiting; Honrs ot Trainmen. WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.

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 several year. 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. PRODUCT.
