Metes to Leetaree or Experts la
AMES. Ia, Jan. 7. (Special.)-When ths
registrar's office closed tonight, 750 short
course students had been enrolled. There
are prospects for a good many more during
the next few days, although the number
already present makes this the largest
short course ever held here.
The chief event today was the meeting of
the Iowa Sheep Breeders' association. As
the weather was bad and the trains delayed
the opening session was not held until this
afternoon. The meeting was opened by a
few words of welcome from Prof. Curtlss,
following which Prof. R. K. Bliss of the
extension department gave a talk on the
sheep Industry of the state. Mr. Bliss em
phasised the Importance of sheep as cheap
meal producers on high priced land and
with high priced feed. He also spoke of
the great work which the association had
before It in interesting the farmers of
Iowa In thia industry and in disseminating
Instructed In sheep growing.
Following Mr. Bliss' talk, there was con
siderable discussion among the members
present ss to the advisability . of asking
the legislature for appropriations for a new
sheep barn at the state fair grounds. It
was brought out that during ths rainy
weather many of the sheep on exhibition
at the fair are compelled to lie In the
mud and that many exhibitors refuss to
show at the Iowa. state fair on that account-Mr.
Wentworth of the animal husbandry
department at Iowa Bute college next gave
a talk on the cross breeding of sheep. He
took up the early history of the various
breeds and showed how they had developed
by cross breeding. He also spoke of the
value of cross breeding at the present time
In improving the sheep on the western
ranges and in producing market animals In
the corn belt. He especially emphasised
the fact, however, that cross breeding is
ruinous when Indulged In Indiscriminately
and for the production of breeding animals
The last number on the afternoon pro
gram was a paper written by Mr. Ellis
Rail of Birmingham. Ia: Mr. Ball was
unable to be present himself.
Much disappointment was felt by the
members of the association when word
was given out that Mr. A. H. Banders of
the Breeders' Oesette ' would be unabla
to fulfill his engagement to speak this
evening. His place was taken, by Mr.
George H. Van Houten of Ienox. Ia., who

Regarding the suit brought in the United

of Omaha to restrain the city officials from
further proceedings with the Issue of the

Importance to Council Bluffs and all other

suit' Instituted in the district court for the
city, is or Is not a fraud on the court, and
an Imposition, as charged In this case, it
does not bring Into Issue all the questions
Involved in the situation and could not de

a number of other questions regarding the
legality of the bond election and the pro

sre Important, in my Judgment, not merely
because of their connection with the water
works matter. The question of a sewer
age plant for the western part ot Council
Bluffs is one which must be dealt witn in
the near future, and It is important that
the city should know what Its limitations
are, and that other doubtful points re

CINCINNATI. O., Jan. 7.-The thres
days' session of the National Base BAH
commission closed today when the Na
tional association of minor leagues agreed
to accept the creation of class AA clubs
and allow the commission to settle the
differences between the two factions re
garding the territorial rights 'of the East
ern league and the American association.
With the reaching of this conclusion every
difference that existed when the confer
ences began has been sdjnsted. The report
of the commission will be Issued within
the next five days.
Regarding tickets to the world's cham
pionship games the commission fixed the
maximum price at $2 and the minimum at
60 cents. .
The commission also discussed the pos
sible chances of bettering the conditions
among the "outlaws" on the Pacific coast,
and after a conference with J. Calewlng
of the Pacific Coast league decided to
postpone any action until the next com
mission meeting, February 18, at Chicago.
The National and American leagues also
will meet In Chicago then.
The National Association of Minor
leagues accepted the resignation of Pres
ident P. T. Powers and Director O'Brien.
president of the American association. M.
H. Sexton, president of the Three-I league,
was elected to succeed Powers and Dr. F,
C. Carson, president of the Central league,
to succeed O'Brien.
Terms sf Agreement.
By the agreement reached the American
association and the Eastern league get all
they asked for, excepting a separata organ
isation entirely outside of the Notional as
sociation. Of their eight requests the other
seven were granted by the National associ
ation. The organisations, with the Paclfio
coast league, hereafter are to be In a clas
sification of their own, to be known as AA.
They are to have the right to dratt players
from the Southern and Western leagues
now in class A, as well aa from all the
lower clssses. All players drafted by major
league clubs from the smaller leagues can
not to be sent back to such leagues without
first passing through the AA leagues. Ths
AA leagues are to be permitted to draft
territory from the minors under certain
conditions and the number of players to
be carried under reserve by major league
clubs shall be limited.
It was agreed that all Internal affairs of
the class AA clubs shall be decided by
themselves without reference to the present
national board, and that all disputes be
tween AA clubs and other minor league
clubs shall go first to the board of arbi
tration, with right of appeal to the com
mission In every case. This makes It Im
possible for any dispute to be absolutely
decided by the minor league board If It In
volves any class AA club.
The National association was willing that
theve three organisations be placed in a
separate organisation as a third party to
the national agreement, but the commission
would not grant thla request.
Quite a number of the base ball magnates
