CHICAGO, Dec. 15. The end of
the base ball war came In eight to-
I night when American league mag
nates at their annual session here
i agreed to the peace terms arranged
at New York between the Federal
and National leagues.
' Within a tew days, according to
(President B. B. Johnson of the Amer
ican league, the details of the agree
! merit, which does away with the
(Federals as an Independent league,
will be arranged, the American
flleague having consented to appoint
ia committee to meet envoys from the
lother two organizations.
The announcement of the agreement
'cams after a session which took up
Wt of the afternoon and at which
nothing waa discussed except peace pro
posals of the Federal lcanue.

The set a (freed to at New York by the
.National league, were relayed to the
.American league meeting by Barney

Jptlonale. who came on from the eaet
a messenger of peace, t or an hour
r. Dreyfuss a.Jref-scd the club ownera.
T;rm of the agreement were not made
giublic, both Mr. Dreyfuas and the mag
nates agreeing to keep silent on these,
hut it la generally understood that the
'conaolidation of the National and Fed
eral Is the basis. President Johnson de
clared that there would be only two
leagues, the American and National.
To a later session waa left the ap
pointment of a committee to meet the
committees of the other leagues. The
joint peace session probably will take
place within a week, according- to Mr.
Johnson, at New York or Chicago.
.Many details remain to be arranged.

of the trade talk which preceded the
meeting. That the effect of the war's
end would be to create an easier market
rn h.u ninvnra waa admitted by the
managers, and all concerned denied that
any tradea had been arranged .
Peace talk took urn so much time that
the league at Us afternoon session had
no time to take up other matters, though
there was some disousaion of the Cleve
land cluba affairs. Mr. Dreyfuss declared
there waa no mention of the Cleveland
club In the terms he brought.
"Peace ia better than war," said Mr.
ireyfuss tonight, "and I told the Amerl-
n leairue magnates so. Ave reacnea
terms with the Federal league, which are
agreeable to both them and the National
league, and our proposition met with the
approval of the American league. Our
close relations with the American league
made it dealrable that complete accord
exist on the question, and It looks as If
vra had reached that.

"I laid the terms beflre the American

no more about It. I can give out no de

club's affairs sre In the hands of the
American league and our league has noth
ing to say about them."
"The end of the base ball war Is In
eight," aald President Johnson. "The
plans for peace submitted by Mr. Drey
fuss were agreeable to the American
league, according to the senseof our meet
ing, and tonight at a later session we
ahall appoint a committee to go over the
details. It la probable that a meeting

by a meeting of the national commlealon.

The convention opened its session bright

ness ss printed on the program was
adopted several delegates arose to ask
if place could not be found on the pro
gram for a discussion of co-operative
packing plants. The president suggested
that a better wsy to bring about a dis
cussion on the point would be to have
some such a proposition embodied In the
resolutions. The matter waa allowed to
rest at that, and the resolutions commit

"Responsibility for the blood
