Jack Holland Slated to Get the
Gate, According to Dope
' That Trickles Out of
St. Joseph, Mo., Nov. 21 (Special)
Despite the news that was serif
forth, from Louisville, probabilities
are strongly against the returft of
Jack Holland as a permanent factor
in St. Joseph base ball, and al
though Holland is now here and is
the owner of the local franchise it
is a ten to one shot that when the
1918 season opens Ed Hanlon will
be the owner and director of base
ball in St. Joseph. -
This .interesting bit of information
comes direct from Hanlon and his
plans for; re-entering this city have
not been in the least changed. H:
will be here the latter part of the
week to confer with civic clubs and
to learn just what can be done. Han
lon is frankly desirous of returning
to this city and has no hesitancy in
saying so and he further says tha
he does not intend returning to Sioux
Tfiat the Western League circuit
5 to materially change in spite of
the assurance of President Dicker
son is also made certain. There is
a bare chance that a deal may be
arranged whereby Holland and Han
lon will trade franchises, local mag
nate going to Sioux City, and there
is also according to this same infor
mation a " better chance that the
Western "will drop both Denver, and
Sioux City and will enter Tulsa and
Oklahoma City instead.' '. ;
Stock Company Perhaps,
Hanlon says that he is confident
some deal will be made1 by which there
is a change in ownership ' here and
there is a chance that if Hanlon does
not return here a stock company may
be organized with Eddie Holly as
manager. Holland leases the grounds
but owqs the equipment at League
park and this would have to be pur
chased. The fans here care very lit
tle who owns the team if they can be
given good base ball, but they are
anxious to have Hanlon return be
cause they believe that is the sort he
would furnish. Hanlon made money
here during his 28-day stay, not much
to be sure, but enough to make it
seem considerable in view of his Sioux
City venture and it is believed that
starting the season here Hanlon rould
re-establish Joe town as oneof the
best base ball towns in the dountry,
but the fans do not want in the same
league with , towns of Hutchinson's
size and will not support base ball in
such a league.- The ideal circuit from
a St. Joseph standpoint would be
Omaha, Lincoln, Des ' Moines, St:
Joseph, ,Topeka, Peoria, Sioux City
and either Kock Island or Davenport;
and that according to information re
ceived today is exactly what may
happen when the magnates meet in
St. Joseph on December 9. In the
meantime keep your ears open big
news is likely to break at any mo
ment. Mrs, George Edwards
Wins Woman's Title
Of Prettiest 'Mile
Mrs. George Edwards won the
woman's championship of the Pret

Supreme Court Decision Put
ting 0. E. on Oral Betting
Makes, Annual Winter
Meeting Possible.
There will be more than sixty days
of horse racing at New Orleans this
winter without interference from the
Louisiana authorities. The supreme
court has just handed down an im
portant ruling to the effect that oral
betting and stakeholding are not vio
lations of the Locke law, which
passed several years ago for the pur
pose of wiping out professional book
making. Racing at New Orleans was revived
in 1915 by the Business Men's asso
ciation, which reopened the historic
fair grounds. Joseph A. Murphy was
at the head of this organization, which
was permitted to run races in con
nection with the individual system of
betting. Stakeholders took charge of
the business in the "Pahn Garden."
where bettors congregated, with the
result that the sport enjoyed much
Last winter, however, enemies of
the sport got busy. They carried on
a vigorous crusade against betting,
with the result that one Edwin Aus
tin was arrested, charged with operat
ing a betting book. Austin made no
memoranda of wagers accepted, but
held the cash and written betting
slips that were handed to him by
speculators. He was convicted in one
of the lower courts and jail sen
tence was' imposed. Austin appealed
to the , supreme courtwhich has or
dered his discharge.' -v
This rutins' clears the atmosphere
after many weeks of apprehension. It
paves the way for the opening of a
new race track in Jefferson Parish, a
suburb, early in December for a
meeting that will cover about thirty
days. Subsequently, the fair grounds I
will resume, operations with a ses-
- - .
sion that will begin on New Year's
day and end with the Mardi Oras fes

As professional boxing in New

American Wife of English Of
ficer One Jo Confer With
Germans Concerning
(Correspondence ot The Associated Tress.)
London, August 4. The first
woman diplomatist to sit at a table
of diplomatic negotiation,, according
to the Daily Mail, is Mrs. Darley Liv
ingstone, who was one of the six
British official representatives at the
Anglo-German conference at The
Hague recently, to deal with ques-
tions on prisoners of war,
Mrs. Livingston is an American,
married to a British officer, and has
been a member and secretary of the
government committee on the treat
ment by the enemy of British prison
ers since it was formed two years ago.
In the early days of the -war Mrs.
Livingstone used to do all the inter
viewing of the sick and wounded pris
oners which were returned periodi
cally, and 'although this work is now
done largely by a large staff of volun
tary interviewing all escaped prison
ers of war.
Mrs. Livingstone, talking about her
visit to The Hague, said:
"People did seem surprised to find
a woman i.mong tjie British represen
tatives. I am sure I don't know why,
because there is really nothing that
1 women are not doing in England to-
aay, is merer l - naa no means oi

impossible to give you .an adequate
idea of the extreme formality of the
"I was there merely to assist Sit
KODert lounger, our cnairman, witn
informaticn which as secretary of the
committee I naturally have at com
mand. It was real hard work all the
time, and both partfes were concerned
solely with the welfare of the prison
ers. Questions concerning them were
the only ones discussed, and I think
the agreements concluded will be
found to be very satisfactory."
Strong men make up their
minds, but also, reserve the
right to change them. For ex
ample, a man may have been
smoking too heavy cigars
and too many of them.
When such a man beconJfes con
vinced, that for steady smoking, a
cigar of milder taste will suit him
better, he is strong enough to ad
mit it. .
His conversion to pleasant smok
ing is quite likely to be effected
by a cigar of the light-hearted
type Tom Moore, for instance.
City. Local Trade Supplied by Branch House,
Washington, Nov. 2L Whether the
United States shall declare war
against Germany 'asllies promises to
be a subject of considerable discus
sion at the next session of congress,
said Senator Hitchcock, ranking mem
ber of the foreign relations commit
tee, upon his return today to Wash
ington. In his opinion the question
presents many complications and is
one of, extreme delicacy as well as
important in immediate future devel
opments of the war.
"A declaration of war against Austria-Hungary,"
said Senator Hitch
cock, "might be construed as an en
dorsement of tlaly's demands upon
Austria. These include a demand for
territory which virtually would de
prive Austria of every seaport a
fruitful situation for a future war. It
is a question whether the United
States would be willing to give such
an endorsement."
Senator Hitchcock said he antici
pated that the coming session of con
gress would be a long one and from
observations during the recess he be
lieves the public is giving whole
hearted support to the war.
