It distinctly understod hat they would
still fight for the principle Involved and
for which they struck.
la returning to. the dub tha players re
ceived no oonceaalona from Bsn Johnson,
who had Indefinitely suspended Ty Cobb
for sttacklhg a spectator In a game In
New York last week. Mr. Navln. how
ever, promised the men. that If they re
turned h' would do his utmost to have
Cobb reinstated as quickly as possible;
that he would do all lie could aa a club-'
owner to have the American league give
be'ler protection to the players on the
field against unsportsmanlike conduct on
the part of the, spectators and that he
will see that nine of the players will
suffer any financial loss as tha result of
any fines that may be Imposed on them
by tha lei sue.
The special meeting of the American
league will be held tomorrow at II a. m..
at which the club owners will decide

Mr. Johnson would not talk about the
action of the men In determining to re
turn to the Held. .
Mr. Navln told the players that he
would do Ills utmost to have tha sus
pension of Cobb rifted at tR earliest
moment and that he would taks car of
all fines Inflicted on the players for their
strike. The players nave consented to
return on this promise because they feel
that Mr. Navln was the Innocent sufferer
In this extraordinary affair. The players
desire it distinctly; understood that the
principle Involved on which they struck
will be taken up and fought to a finish
with the American league.

clothes men to eject objectionable fans
and we have refunded the price of ad
missions to dosens of men who did not
observe the conventions st the local park.
I do- not contemplate any complications
regarding our club."

Th ninety-third annual report of the
board of education was presented to the
general assembly today. The report. In
part, follows: ' ,
"The year now closed has, with one
exception, wtlh a record year In our his
tory. Th missionary operations of the
board have been strengthened, a closer
touch upon th field of Christian educa
tion secured, several new agencies put
into successful operation, and a stesdy
and constant Increase In contributions
realised, all of whlcb furnishes occasion
for deep gratitude and great encourage
ment "Eight hundred and fourteen applica
tions wer received during the' closing
year from eandldates for the ministry,
?7 of which met tha rules of the assem
bly and the board the remainder, twenty
seven being regretfully declined. Of th
recommendations honored 11 wer "new
men." a decrease of forty-one over last
year, and MS were 'renewals,' a decrease
of twenty-seven over th year preceding.
This decreas should not, however, oc
casion grave concern, as It does not
represent aa actual decrease In the total
number of candidates. The ratio of eight

remain practically th same from year
