probably will be eclipsed by the present
Thl valuation I an Increase of about
$O.0.000 over the value ot INS, hitherto
the il(het ever recorded. The Increase
occuired la th face of decline In

He said 0,OM horses had been pur
chased from an English dealer for about
10,000,000 franca. . Information regarding
this transaction, he said, had been fur

according to the deputy's Information,
received a fantastic commission. Inquiry
now has developed the fact, he continued.
that this lntermidlary waa no other than
the Marquis Crevecoeur, former associate
of Henri Rochette, who fled to Mexico
after being convicted and sentenced to
prison on the charge of swindling.
The French ambassador at London, M

the activities of certain persons there
who were endeavoring to obtain Illegal

DREYIYSS BEINGS MESSAGE
(Continued from Pag One.)
The proposition for peace Includes the re
maining two major leagues."
The peace terms, as previously given
out br members of both the National and
Federal leagues. Include the purchase of
a large Interest in one of ths New York
clubs by Harry Sinclair; the purchase of
the Chicago Nationals by Charlea Weeg
mui and his aseoclatea; the sale of the
Browne or Cardinals at St. Douls to Phil
Ball and Otto Stlefel and the amalgama
tion of the Brooklyn Nationals and Fed
erals. Neither Mr. Dreyfuss nor the
American lesgue leaders would verify
Kasa I'Onar War.
The peace protocol ends a war that
began to attract attention juat two years
ago this month. The Federal league had
been in existence less than a year, hut not
until Joe Tinker, unable to reach terms
with the Brooklyn Nationals, had sgreed
to join the Chicago Federals, did It look
serious. Tinker induced a number of
player from both rival leagues to Join
the new league, and Its organizers suc
ceeded in attracting additional capital
ists, as backers.
The new league then expanded, putting
teams In Brooklyn and St. Douls, In ad
dition to Its former circle, sod one by
one gathered Into Its fold some star ball
The legality of contracts brought the
fight between the Federals and Organized
base ball Into the courts in several
cases, the cllmsx coming with the anti
trust suit filed before Judge Dandla
about a year ago. This case came to
trial last January, but Judge Landls has
never bended down a decision and some
bsse ball men thought he was hoping
for the success of peace negotiations,
since during the trial, he declared he
was against anything "calculated to tear
down this structure known ss base ball."
Following the trial, peace terms were
broached and several meetings between
representatives of the rival factions were
held. The first tangible results followed
a meeting which took place In the east
during the world's series, and which led.
It Is believed, to the terms which finally,
the magnates say, will end the war.
