oommislson issued a statement tonight.
Inviting the public to prove It It there
was collusion between the New York
National league base ball club or sny
ot its orrictala and ticket scalpers In
the world's series lest October.
So fer, Chairman August Herrmann
said, the commission lias spent $1,600 look
ing for evidence and was prepared to
spend more. It has investigated the
scandal, he declared, and would continue
to Investlgste, but real proof was hard
What evidence already had been gar
nered he did nit dlsolose. .
This was but on tf geveral matters
that kept the commission for six hours
behind closed doors. Another matter dis
cussed was gambling in baas ball pools,
upon which ths miiibers placed a ban.
TO correct this evil the Commission
adopted a resolution recommending to the
National and American leagues that they .
do all In their power in their respective
circuits to end that custom. It also wss
announced that ths ocmmisslon will con
sult with "the postofflca authorities and
the proper federal officials te secure their
co-operation to that end. It having; been
reported to the commission that several
newspapers and othsr periodicals carried
these pools, making it seem a lottery."
The name of the Eastern league was
changed this afternoon to the Inter
national league and Edward O. Barrow N
was re-elected president, secretary and
treasurer tor five, yeara
The committee reported that It bad re
ferred to President Lynch of ths Na
tional and Prealdent Johnson of ths
American league the request of the East
ern league and Pacific, league and the
American association tor higher rat'lngs.
Each major league wlK consider the ques
tion at It meeting tomorrow. The com-
mission will consider the question at its
meeting tomorrow. Ths commission will
receive their reports at Its annual meet
ing in Cincinnati. January J, and dispose
of the 'matter then.

ataited a rigid Investigation. l h..
sxpended more than fl.COt and Is prepared
to apend more. The commission realises
that tickets wars In ths hands of specu

Phis, it also realizes thst the speculators
sold these ticket at exhorbitant prices.
-mat we want te know, however, ia
whether any one connected with the
New York club or the Philadelphia club
was In collusion with any spsculstor or
speculators. We are anxious te secure
information along that line.
"If any newspaper haa Information
