Louisville, Ry., Nov. 11. (Special Telegram.) The
vanguard of delegates here for the National Association con
vention started 'the ball rolling here this morning when the
Western league held an executive session at (he Louisville hotel.
HOT TIME EXPECTED. , O -
V When the Western boys convened
at II o'clock, the big drive got under
way, so from now on until Thursday
night there will be action and plenty
v of it for the base ball fans and owners
. all over the country.
Nothing was done at the Western
league meeting regarding the much
talked of redisricting of the whole
minor circuit , body. The ordinary
routine stuff was indulged in during
the 'three hours that the league was
in session, ;
ALL PRESIDENTS ON HAND.
.President Dickerson found his full
quota of club presidents in attendance,
when the opening shot was fired.
They are as follows: .lofin Holland.
St. Tceph; Hugh Jones, Denver; j
rranis isocn, wierma; jonn savage,
Joplin; William Holmes. Lincoln:
Tom Fairweather, Pes Moines; E. J.
Hanlon, Sioux City, and W. A. Rourke,
Omaha.. ..'., ;
In the league meeting, which wai
the most' harmonious in the history of
the Western , fcague, according to
President Dickerson, it ' was agreed
tha no sentiment for or against Wie
proposed redisricting of minor, lea
gues be expressed, and therefdre, it
can be seen that, the. Westerners are
sitting still in the boat, waiting for the
b,ig blowoff. . w .
What action they will take then
remains to. be seen. No-doubt they
formed their plans here today, but
these will be kept secret until someone
else shows down in the remaking of
the minor map.. M.r i , .
Find Money on Han4.
: There was a mild sensation in the
meeting when President Dickerson re
ported a sum of money in the treas
ury, a larger amount than has nestled
there in five years. This was almost
an unheard of proceeding and the
magnates immediately formed a reso
lution of a vote of . thanks, which
passed unanimously. ' -
- While no league action was taken
regarding the redisricting of minor
leagues, most of the Western league
magnates represented themselves- as
heartily in favor of it.. Hanlon, Isbeli,
Holmes, Fairweather, Rourke . and
others stated that something must be
done to save the minor leagues during
the war time and that they were of
the opinion that redisricting Mhe
leagues would do the work. They
stated that they expected this would
be handed, them in the event such a
thing transpired, but they were willing
to have it done to benefit the game
and put all of the leagues on a more
sound basis. '
tin.!. T ..J- ! A.. J
wiuaua Ktaua in niicnuanvc.
It was stated that the average at
tendance of Western league clubs dur
ing the last season was 60,000. Omaha
led in attendance, with Wichita sec
ond, Des Moines third, Joplin fourth
and Lincoln right behind Joplin, prac
Hutchinson s future in base ball de
pends upon the actions of Jack Hol
land. Offers have been made Holland
for his holdings in St.' Joseph and the
chances are he will dispose of them,
though not at this meeting.
"Babe" Adams, manager of Hutch
inson, is likely to be disposM of dur
ing these meetings. It is stated that
he will go to major league club. -'
' Westerns Meet Tuesday. "
The next meeting of the Western
league will be held, late Tuesday aft
ernoon. - The American association
convenes here tomorrow, so the West
ern leaguers will have a pretty good
lirtt on the developments by Tuesday,
The Western league will meet from
.time to time during the National asso
ciation, but its schedule meeting will
uc nci'i in ucs aioines in January.
Rourke the Money Maker.
. "Pa" Rourke claims the long dis
tance money-making record in the
minors and the cfonces are that he
will get away with it. Rourke has
had the club in Omaha for 28 years
and during that time he has never quit
loser on' a season. Furthermore; he
has never made less than $8,000 on a
season. Rourke will not have any op
position for his title. , -"
The Western league will give a
dinner tomorrow night at the Old Inn
tor its friends and newspaper men. .

With 176,311 food pledge cards
turned in bythe 93 counties of the
state, Nebraska has outdistanced its
quota of 175,000, set by the govern
ment officials and assured by Food
This total as reported last night is
not yet complete as many of the coun
ties are yet finishing up their cam
paigns. When the final totals are in,
it is conservatively estimated the fig
ures will exceed 200,000.
"Nebraska's response has not sur
prised me at all," said Food Adminis
trator Wattles. "When L assured the
Washington people we would nave
175,000 I only expressed my faith in
Nebraskans. If there were any dis
appointment it would be that of the
seemingly low number. However, this
is a big state and there are many miles
to cover. If we could have gotten to
every family in the state, which was
prevented in many instances, we
would have had even a greater re
sponse. Douglas county continues to pour
her cards in, although she has passed
her quota long ago. Last night saw
45,620 in the offices in The Bee build
ing, and others coming in. Omaha and
Douglas have done well over their
quota of 42,944.
Mr. Wattles made : the hearts pf
the Park and Long school children
glad yesterday by sending to them
the flags they had won recently for
the highest number of cards turned in
by any school. .
With 1,926 signed cards, Park school
made the pace for the public schools
of the public schools of the city and
Long came second, with a total of
1,454. Mr. Wattles ' yesterday for
warded the flags to Principals Miss
Clara Mason and' Miss Martha Powell.
"Without the school children and
Boy Scouts, I do not know -what we
would have done. With them we went
away over the quota, and that's the
answer to the boys and girls of Oma
na. could there have been a better?"

Princeton, First Year Men
Pqnceton, N. J., Nov. ll.The Har
vard freshmen foot ball team defeated
the Princeton first year men yester
diy by24 to 0. Inability to handle
the ball cleanly, as well as a tendency
to throw forward passes recklessly
about the field, marred the Princeton
eleven's play. Harvard scored all its
points in the first two periods.
Rev. Isaac Sharp English
: Quaker, Dead at Leytonshire
' London, Npv. 8. The1 Rev. Isaac
Sharp, for nearly 30 years secretary
of the Society of Friends in England,
and one of the foremost figures in the
Quaker church, is dead at his home at

SMALL, BUT GOOD
landscapes of High Order Pre
dominate, Representing Fa
mous Artists, Corot, In
ness and Thaulow.
Thirty-six pictures are now on view
at the 11th exhibition of the Society
of Fine Arts at the Hotel Fontenelle.
Very well hung, one notices on en
tering that the old-time garish frames
are becoming obsolete and that the
subdued old-gold predominates and
blends more harmoniously with the
In landscapes, 'The Old Dam," by
the Norwegian, Fritz Thaulow, stands
to the' fore. The play of light upon
the water is Thaulow's forte. The
tonal effect is subdued to give proper
snap to the high lights and reflec
tions. The picture is a good example
of Thaulow's art. "Arkville Meadows,"
by Arthur Parton, has a soft, luscious,
after-glow appeal if one cuts out the
sky, clouds and studio finish. Leon
L'Hermitte's "Shepherdess and Sheep"
is pleasing in its softness and tonal
consistency. The tendency in paint
ings of this nature often is towards
too much detail and hard finish. The
picture representing L'Hermitte is far
more poetic and has more mystic ap
peal than his large figure work in the
Luxembourg. " ,
Aside from these, there is a Corot,
a Daubigny, an Inness and a Tryon.
There are other landscapes by well
known artists. They are typical, no
more. Some are of the old Bitumen,
school, others approach qualities,
others are "just landscapes."
In the figure line -Sir Thomas Law
rence's The Countess of Arundale"
is interesting as a sample of old-time
portraiture, a specimen of a past
school of painting. "The Portrait of
a Man," by Antonis Palamede, is a
near Hals-Rembrandt. It has the
rich mellowness of agebut falls short
of those qualities that have made the
old masters live. Notice the hard,
straight outlines in the shadows. Ben
son's "Elizabeth" is marred by its
anatomical inconsistencies. A painter
might not care for this portrait except
from the composition standpoint, but
one must not pverlook the ppint that
a good-looking girl jn combination
with a Mandarinjrobe has a certain at
traction for those who are not look
ing for art qualities, and all those that
go to an exhibition do not delve into
or care about technic or what art
means to the artist. .
If interested in the Dutch school,
one may see before next Wednesday
a De" Hoog, an Artz, a Van der Weele,
Garf- or Snoeck; a wave petrified in
mid-air, or a cotton cloud; nature as
she was never seen before; or day
dreams brought to life. It is possible
to be thrilled by the bizarre or ap
pealed to by the poetry of gaint.
