peace with that organisation, that action
must be approved by all organized ball,
not only by the major leagues, but the
National Association of Professional Base
Ball Leagues, from the biggest minors
down to the smallest Class D club." '
- That was the parting word of Garry
Herrmann, chairman of the National
commission, to the Minor League conven
tion yesterday, Just before he departed
"for Chicago. Herrmann spoke before the
convention in session at the Rome hotel.
"I hare met with Mr. Wecghrrfenn of
the Federals four times," asserted Herr
mann. "Monday last I was In conference
with Mr. Weeghmann. Robert E. Ward
of Brooklyn and Colonel Robertson of
Buffalo. Tomorrow morning I will meet
with them again.
"I am for peace. That much I will
definitely state; I am for peace If it can
be obtained through and .sensible lines.
I believe that the Federals think dlffer
ntly now than they did at the start of
the season. They were encouraged to en
ter the base ball war by the promoters

Federals had enjoyed double the business

predictions of the promoters

Discovery of another case of - the foot
and mouth disease In Jones county, Iowa,
has caused the Washington authorities
to indicate that a request for the raising
of the quarantine on Iowa .will not be
met favorably at this time.
"It is a policy of watchful waiting
now," according to E.' Buckingham, gen
eral manager of the Union Stock yards.
The local yards had Intended to formally
request the raising of the quarantine on
western Iowa and to that end ordered 1
A. Stryker, secretary ot the Live . StobH
exchange to "proceed .-. t rom BostoA.'itb
Washington to present the demand. 'Be
fore making a formal ' request Stryker
was directed to reel out the situation.- A
private conversation with A. D. Melvln,
chief of the Bureau or Animal Industry,
gave the yards 'to understand that a re
quest for a discharge of western Iowa
from quarantine, at this time would not
be favorably received. In consequence ft
will not be asked.
Moat Trace Disease.
Before such" request would be con
sidered every state will have to be can
vassed by the Bureau of Animal Industry
and all disease centers located. All live
stock that has passed through the Chicago
yards since October, 6 must be traced to
its final ' destination and carefully ex
amined for traces of infection. I
Infected cattle at Olendlve, Mont., yes
terday . were discovered and 106 head
killed and 800 other cattle were placed
under stringent observation by the au
thorities. Railroads Still Active.
Local officials of the roads operating
into and out of Omaha are proceeding
rapidly with - the disinfecting of stock
cars and expect to complete their labors
by the last of the week. Up to this time
none 'of them has any advloe indicating
that the foot and mouth disease Is
spreading Into Omaha territory. On the
other hand, they are advised that It is
being held in the localities where It
broke out. '
Assistant General Western Agent Du
val of the Milwaukee has returned from
Michigan,: one of the quarantined states,
and asserts that while the farmers and
stock raisers there are considerably
alarmed, ' co-operating with state and
government officials, they are holding
the disease In check. The disease Is not
general throughout the state, but has ap
peared in a number of localities.

the president, "then you know that It Is

Mr. Wilson said General eKarney typi

the United States, adding that "there has
been many another man who. stood
alongside of him with the same qualities
and the same distinction of service.
"The government of a great people,", he
added, "can always count upon great
services ; and the beauty of our govern

that -It is a government of a great people,
prodigal in their gifts of service, always
ready to provide those things which con
stitute the stuff of heroism and elevate
a nation in the annals of- mankind."

Although no German .vessel has yet en
tered, tho north Pacific, and the British

are patrolling the coast, the people of
Victoria, Vancouver and Prince Rupert
have been extremely nervous over re
ports that the way was operi for a Oer-
man naval attack on British cities. The
Strait of Fuca, near, Victoria, has been
mined, guns have been placed command
ing the narrows near Vancouver and
other defensive steps have been taken.
The German war machine has
battered Its war Into the Belgian
town of Dlxmude. The official
French statement contains the ad
mission that the allies were
obliged to fall back from thin
point of vantage In the great bat
tle for possession of the eastern
bore of the British channel. As
an offset, the "French war offico
states that the allies' forces have
advanced along the North Sea
coast, pushing back the Germans
and taking I.onibnertrtede, a small
Delglan town a few miles north
t east of Nleuport.
Along the remainder of the
battle lino, says U French war
office, there Is no change, except
for slight progress by the allies
at a few points. The Berlin view
of the situation, hoVever, is op
timistic, comment is madeathere
of the use of the expression "good
advanens" In the latest official
German reports concerning the
fighting In the west, being .the
first occasion on which such terms
have. been employed In this con
nection. Paris also Is hopeful as to the
outcomo In Belgium. Military
critics there take the view that
the Germans aro faced with, the
Imperative necessity of defeating
the allies,' In order that they mar
turn their attention to the menac
ing armies of Russia.
The German crown prince is re
