The game was marked by Its excep

not so much to blame, as they were com
pelled to resort to rough tactics for their
own salvation. The official permitted

reached such proportions that they were
unable to stop It. Mona Berry, captain
of the Omaha eleven, was ordered from
the game for swinging at a Ies Moines

Injuries were frequent and time out waa

commseion Is also to meet, as Herrmann
ha taken measurea to reserve additional
rooms and a parlor, where meetings may
be held. Johnson has announced that he
will be here and Tener will probably
come, so It Is almost asmirred the com
mission will meet.

If the commission meets here Omaha,
will be the place where some of the
most Important legislation In base ball
will be enacted- The commission has
many things to decide, and If they meet
here 'etf'ery big league club otvner and
manager will be here to watch hla own
(.Interests In the legislation. Alro the Feda
will be here to get a line on any move
organised ball may make.
A few days go Herrmann declared
that any announcements' he might makfl
would probably be made here. It Is
thought by many that his announce
