Too Brst, second and final games of last year's world's series were "thrown" to Cincinnati by right members of the Chicago Arm-ri-cans, according to revelations aalil to have been made by Billy Maharg, former boxer and well known In local sporting circles. Maharg's story, as printed today la the Philadelphia North American, says that he and Bill Burns, former American League pitcher, were the first to be approached in the conspiracy, "I received a wire from Rums from Now York the middle of last September, Inviting me to take a hunting trip with him down on his ranch In New Mexico," said Maharg. "We were to take Bill James, one of the While Sox pitchers, with ns. James had nothing to do with the subsequent events, bet, while we were there In a room talking, Clootte came In and started to talk In a low voice to Bums. "I heard enough to know that he said that a group of prominent players of the White Sox would be willing to throw the coming world's series If a syndicate of gamblers would give them $100,- 000 on the morning of the first game. SAW GAMBLERS. "When Clootte left, Bnrns turned to me and repeated Cfcotte's conversation, part of which I luul heard. Burns said: 'Do yon know any gamblers who would be Interested In this proposition?' I said 1 wpnld go to Philadelphia and see what I could do. Burns said he would have to go to Montreal to close an oil deal and that he would wire me about the progress of the deal. "I then went to Philadelphia and saw some gamblers. They told me It was too big a proposition for them to handle, and they recommended me to Arnold Roth-stein, a well-known and wealthy New York gambler. "In the meantime Bnrns and I had returned to New York and I went over again and Joined him. We met Jtothstoln by appointment and put the proposition up to him. He declined to get Into It. He said he did not think that such a frame-up could be possible. "We left Rothsteln and hung around New York for awhile. I returned to Philadelphia, thinking that everything was off until I received the following telegram from Bill Burns: "'Arnold R. has gone through with everything. Got eight In. Leaving for Cincinnati at 4:30.' I went the next day and jolnod Burns. He said that after I had left New York he ran Into Abo Attell, the fighter, who had gone to Rothsteln and fixed things up. Burns said be had seen Clcotte and that eight members of the team were in the deal. "Attell was In Cincinnati and had n gang of about twenty-five New York gamblers with him. He snld they were working for Rothsteln. ATTELL REFUSED TO PAY. "I had my first suspicion on the morning of the first game, when Burns and I visited Attell. We asked for the $100,000 to turn over to the White Sox players to carry out our part of the denl. "Attell refused to turn over the $100,000, saying that they needed the money to make bets. He made a counter-proposal that 920,000 would be handed the players at the end of each losing game. Burns went to the Sox players and they seemed satisfied with the new arrangement. "Burns told me that he saw the players were restless and wanted the full amount, and he wns at 2c per 100 lbs.? THE PANAMA CANAL WASHINGTON OFFICE WASHINGTON Washington, D C. Mr. Leslie C. Smith, Secretary, National Association of Ice Industries, Chicago, Illinois. Dear Sir: The receipt is acknowledged of your letter of the 14th instant, in which you state that information has reached your office that the Government is manufacturing and selling ice on . the Isthmus of Panama at two cents per hundred pounds, which amount you believe to be incorrect, and request such data aa may be available on the subject. In reply, you are advised that the latest information which this office has on hand with reference to the sale of ice on the. Isthmus is that the retail price for Canal employees was fixed at forty cents per hundred pounds, and price delivered alongside ship is $1000 per .ton This office is unable to advise. as to the cost of manufacturing ice on the Isthmus, but the statement that it is manufactured and sold there at two cents per hundred pounds is undoubtedly incorrect, as the Panama Canal aims to sell such commodities at a price which will only net a reasonable profit Should you desire any further Information upon this subject, kindly advise and we will be glad to furnish same if available Very respectfully, (Signed) A L. FLINT, Chief of Office This Utter h published To correct the misinformation that has heen quoted, prominently through the press of this city. Los Angeles Ice & Cold Storage Co. W.

So we went to Chicago and bet all of our personal winnings of the first two days en Cincinnati to win the third game. As a matter of fact, the Sox got even with us by winning this game. "Bnrns and I lost every cent we had in our clothes. The upshot was that Attell and his gang cleaned np a fortune and the Sox players were double-crossed out of $ 0,000 that was coming to them." I, ABE ATTELL DENIES PART IN SCANDAL 1ST A. P. mom wimi NEW YORK. Sept. 28. Abe Attell, former featherweight pugilist, who has been named as a ringleader In the baseball gambling scandal, said here tonight that he ' had retained a lawyer to take care of his Interests, and that In a day or two he would make a statement that would "shoot the lid sky-high." . "You can say," he said, "that the story placing the responsibility upon me for passing the $100,000 to the White Sox Is a He. It looks to me that Arnold Rothsteln Is behind the stories. I am surprised at this because I have been a good friend of Rothsteln. "He is simply trying to pass the buok to me. It won't go. "You can see that some one is trying to make It appear that I was responsible for the deal at the Astor. Well. I can tell you that I was not responsible for It. Maharg's story of the fake telegrams and all the rest, as far as I am concerned, la all bunk." JAP "SMOKE SCREEN" ALLEGED BY BARROWS. POSSESSION OF CALIFORNIA LANDS BY ORIENTALS MEANS END, HE SAYS. ibt a. p. night wixa.1 BERKELEY, fiept 28. Possession of land in California by Japanese means the doom of the United States, President David P. Barrows of the University of California said In a statement today setting forth his stand on the Japanese question. Japan is raising a "smoke screen" In California to divert attention from what ha termed "a bold move" In Asia. His statement to! lows, In part: "California is Intensely interested In keeping the American clttrn on the land. No nation can hold to gether unless it controls the eolU Therefore, we cannot allow our agricultural lands to pass Into the hands of aliens. We are trying to hold a large frontier In California, much larger than people in other seotions of the country realize, unless they have visited the Pacific Coast "Under the 'smoke screen' which Japan Is raising in pretense ef domestic agitation in California, she is undoubtedly planning a bold move in either Siberia, Manchuria or Mongolia, She la trespassing upon the sacred rights of China, to all of which w are Indifferent. "We Callfornians are accused in the East of being sensationalists. We have little sympathy from others, except those Who have been here and understand how fast California Is falling Into. the hands of the Japa nese. However, California sees the menace and is united to oppose it. "In this connection the University of California i trying to do Its part in making life on the farm not only tolerable, but Inviting, We believe we can do this if we are attentive In Instructing our students toward Its merits. The University ot California acts as an agent for the rest of the State In an attempt to raise Its own standards to that of a great protectorate for its own labor." WHITE SOX CONFESS FAKE. Greatest Scandal in Baseball History Shakes American League. (Continued from First Page.) the others would be sent them at once. With his voice trembling. Mr. Comlskey, who has owned the White Box since the Inception of the American League, said this was the first time scandal had ever touched his "family" and that it distressed him too much to talk about it. RUSH OF PLATERS. . The rush of players to bare their part In the affair started today when Clcotte appeared and asked permission to testify. Clcotte wept, court attaches said, and exclaimed In anguish his sorrow for his two small children as he told how he Told his i utmost to lose rather th in tt, . 1919 world series, after he had "found" 810,000 beneath his bed room pillow where It had been placed by professional gamblers. He said he lobbed the ball to the plate so slowly "you could read the trademark on It," in the first game at Cincinnati, when he was taken out of the box after three and two-thirds innings had been played. THE CONFESSION. A court official who was present when Clcotte went on the stand described the scene when the star pitcher broke down and cried as he told the jury of his part in the series "fixing." "My God, think of my children," he cried. Clcotte has two small children. "I've lived a thousand years In the last year," the court official quoted him as Ssyirg. "I never did anything I regretted so much in my lite," the witness added, according to the State official. "I would give anything ln the world If I could nndo my acts In the last world series. I've played a crooked game and I have lost, and I am here to tell the whole truth." The story Clcotte Is said to have told the Jury follows In every essential particular that told In Philadelphia by Maharg last night. CICOTTE'S STORY. "In the first game at Cincinnati I was knocked out of the box," Clcotte told the Jury, according to the court official. "I wasn't putting a thing on the ball. You could have read the trade-mark on It when I lobbed the ball up to the plate. "In the fourth game, played at Chicago, which I also lost, I deliberately Intercepted a throw from the outfield to the plate which might have cut off a run. I muffed the ball on one occasion. At another time ln the same game I purposely made a wild throw. All the runs scored against me were due to my own deliberate errors. I did not try to win." Jackson sold that throughout the series he either struck out or else hit easy halls when hits would have meant runs. When Jackson finished his testimony before the grand Jury he was tnken into custody by a deputy sheriff. A court official said that Jackson testified that he received his money In a Cincinnati hotel and that Rtsberg and Mo. Mtillln were the principal "pay off" men. JACKSON'S STORY, Jackson stated that he received Ids money from Claude Williams. According to the court official, Jackson testified that, while each player Implicated was approoched innmuuRiiy, earn Knew aoout inn others. He said that Clcotte also had testified to this effect. Jackson also testified that Gandil, Risberg and McMullin were the only clique that existed and that Gandil was the lender nf this. G-GW0 Sept, 18, 1920 31k He said that the players thought tiandil had double-crossed litem, but afterwards found out It was A he Attell, who had failed to pay tlie money he promised. Last year's world's series records show that in the first inning of the first game he started by hitting Rath, first Cincinnati batter. Daubert followed with a single over second base that sent Rath to third, and he snored when Groh filed to Jackson. Rath beating Jackson's throw to the plate. . CHICAGO TIES. Chicago tied in the next Inning. Kopf putting Jackson on second with a wild throw. Felsch sacrl "TV h'm thlrd ni t3!""1 h" s&fpIv ln center, scoring Jackson. The end of Clcotte's pitching and the runs that ultimately won the game were scored by Cincinnati in the fourth inning.. All the damage was done with two out With Kopf on first, Neale and VVIngo singled; Reuther, the hard-hitting Cincinnati pitcher, drove a three-base hit to the center-field bleachers. Rath doubled and Daubert singled, the combination resulting in five runs, Wilkinson took Cicotte's place after Daubert's tingle and Groh fiied to Felsch. The final score was 9 to 1. GAME AT CHICAGO DELIBERATELY THROWN. The fourth gany played at Chicago was also deliberately thrown awity, according to the court officials, who heard Cicotte's statement to the grand Jury. The Reds won. 2 to 0, Ring, pitching for Cincinnati, holding the : American League champions to three hits. Both Cincinnati runs were made ln the fifth inning when two of Cincinnati's hits were bunched with a wild throw to first by Clootte and a bad throw to the plate by Jackson, which the pitcher intercepted and muffed. The play of this inning was sent over the Associated Press wires as follows: "Roueh waa out, Sohalk to Gan-dil, the ball rolling half way to the pitcher's box. Duncan was safe when Clcotte threw his drive wide to first, the ball going to the stand and Duncan reaching second. Kopf singled to left and Dunoan stopped at third, but scored when Jackson threw wild to the plate. Kopf reached second. "The official scorer gives Clcotte the error for muffing Jackson's throw. Neale sent one over Jackson's head and Kopf scored. Neale reached second. It" was a two-base hit. Wlngo out, Ed Collins to Gandil. Neale going to third. Ring drove a vicious grounder that Ed Collins got and threw him out at first. Two runs, two hits, two errors." The rest of the game was played sharply and so far as the records j show, cleanly. Clcotte pitched the nine Iiiiit9. cjcotte awFnner in the sixth game. Cicotte's next appearance" ln the series was ln the sixth game when Cincinnati had four victories against one defeat, Richard Kerr, the diminutive left-handed pitcher having shut out the champions in the third game. The veteran twlrler, who today confessed the big gambling deal, went through nine innings and held his opponents' to seven hits. Chicago won, 4 to 1, hitting Sallee hard in the first five innings. Jack son and Felsch each got two hits Jnd drove in all nf Phif-mro'. rum Billy Maharg, Philadelphia prize fighter, who last night in Philadelphia, Issued a statement connecting; Clcotte with the gambling deal and charging that Abe Attell, former fighter, headed the gambling clique, asserted that the Sox were double-crossed by Attell and never received iuu,uuu wnicn naa oeen promised , them. It was late in the series before they found this out, Maharg as serted, as Attell kept postponing the I day of settlement, saying he needed the money to bet. WILLIAMS DEFEATED IN FINAL CONFLICT. Besides the two defeats registered against Cicotte in the series, throe others were chalked up against Claude Williams. The latter, a "side arm left-hander, was wild in the second and fifth games, which went to the Reds, 4 to 2 and S to 0. In the eighth and last game of the series he was found for four solid hits ln the firrt Inning and that game and the title of world's cham pions went to Cincinnati, lu to o. Williams's lack of control was gen erally recorded as the cause of his defeats, the record of the second contest saving: "While Cincinnati obtained only four hits, these came at opportune times when they had been preceded by bases on balls off Williams." The fifth iam wns a shutout triumph for Hod Kller, the big "shin ball'' expert of Cincinnati's pitching staff. Only three hits were made oft him and he established a world series record by striking out the side ln two successive innings. , Four of Cincinnati's Ave- runs ' were grouped In the sixth Inning. Eller doubled. Rath scored him with I a single and moved to second en Paubert's "bunt, perfectly laid," as i the report of the game said. Wll-, Hams walked Oroh. Roush drove a three-base hit to FeUoh's territory, scoring two runners, and tallied himself after Duncan filed to Jackson. I Both Clcotte and Jackson were closeted with the grand Jury for a considerable time today. Court officials reported that they told their stories in substantial detail. As they left the room they were taken ' In cuHtody by detectives and taken away. Their detention was not In I the nature of an arrest and It was announced that they would b re-leased later. ' Clcotte, who earlier In the day had (vehemently denied any part In the I alleged plot as described by Maharg ! at Philadelphia, admitted on the stand, officials of the court said, that the Phllndeiphlan's story was sub-' stantlally correct. , GANDIL IS ACCUSED I BY OTHER PLAYERS. The court officials also quoted ' Clcotte as saying that the players I had believed that "Chick" Oandil. j who, ha said, was Interested In the dealings with the gamblers, had "rtouhled-erossed" them and that Mahargv story was the first intlm. linn they had that Attell had "held out" on the $100,000 which had been irnnill them. The eight players named In the true hills had been with the White Hog for periods ranging from four to nine years. Clcotte was pur. chased from Boston In 111 for the I waiver prir. Jo Jsck.on was boutht from Cleveland in 111 for a Ian sum la and torn play. ers. Felsch was purchased from Milwaukee of the American Association in 1114; McMullin from Los Angeles In 11; Risberg from Vernon of the Pacific Coast League In 1811; Williams from Salt Lake City ln 11, and Weaver from York, Pa., in 19 LI. The purchase price ef the eight, paid by Comlskey. represents a tidy fortune. The Investigation by the grand jury will continue until all phases of baseball gambling have been bared, it was said by officials. The investigation started two weeks ago following reports that a game played here August 81 by the Cubs and Philadelphia Nationals was "fixed" and the inquiry Into last year's world series came up only as an incident to the other inquiry. SEVERAL COUNTS ARE PROBABLE IN RETURN. Assistant State's Attorney Hartley Replogle, in charge of the case, said tonight that indictments to be drawn up tomorrow on today's true bills may contain several counts. The true bills specified but one alleged offense, "conspiracy to commit an illegal act." The penalty upon conviction Is one to Ave years In the penitentiary and a line of not more than (10,000. "This Is Just the beginning," Mr. Replogle said. "W, will have more Indictments within a few days and before we get through we will have purged organised baseball of every, thing crooked and dishonest. "We are going after the gamblers now. There will be Indictments within a few days against men in Philadelphia, Inditinapolis, St. Louis, Des Moines, Pittsburg, Cincinnati end other cities. More baseball players also will be Indicted. We've got the goods on these men and w are going the limit" Harry Grabiner. secretary of tha White Sox, announced that the club would play out the schedule to the end though it had to "emDlov Chinamen" to fill the vacancies in the team. COMISKEY MAKES PUBLIC STATEMENT. Mr. Comlskey tonight made this statement to the Associated Press: 'The consideration which the grand jury gave to this case should be greatly appreciated by the general public. Charles A. McDonald. chief justice and the foreman of the grand jury. Harry Brigham and his associates, who so diligently strived to save and make America's great game the clean sport which It Is, are to be commended In no uncer tain terms by all sport followers, In spite of what happened today. And, thank uod. it did happen. For ty-four years of baseball endeavor have convinced me more than ever that it is a wonderful game and a came worth keeping clean. "I would rather close my ball park than send nine men on the field with one of the men holding a dishonest thought toward clean baseballthe game which John McQraw and I went around the world with to show the people on the other side. "We are far from through yet. We . have the nucleus of another championship team with the remainder of the old world's championship team.". He named the veterans, Eddie and John Collins, Ray Schalk, Urban Paber, Dick Kerr, Eddie Murphy, "Nemo" Lelbold and Amos StrunK. and declared that with addition of Hodge, Falk, Jourdan and McClel-lan "I guess we can go along and win the championship yet."'

Comlskey, who today suspended seven of his players ' indicted ln connection with alleged fixing of games, was sent tonight to the White Sox olub owner by Jacob Ruppert and T. I Huston, owners of. the Yankee club. The message follows: "Your action in suspending players under suspicion, although t; wrecks your entire organization nnd perhaps your cherished life work, not only challenges our admiration but excites our sympathv and demands our practical assistance. You are making a terrible sacrifice to preserve the integrity of the game. So grave and unforeseen an emergency requires unusual remedies. "Therefore, in order that you may play out your schedule, and If necessary, the world series, our entire club Is placed nt your disposal. We are confident that Cleveland sports, manship will not permit you to lose by default and will welcome the arrangement We are equally certain that any technicalities In carrying It out can be readily overcome by action of the National Commission."

When told nf the offer of the New York Americans to Comlskey to turn their club over to the Chicago Whit Sox, Harry Grabiner, secretary of the Sox. said: "Of course, It Is Impossible, but the offer will bring tears to the old man's eyes." "It's a splendid offer and on' I appreciate from the bottom of my heart, but I'm afraid there Is no way I can accept it," said Charles A. Comlskey when informed that Jacob Ruppert and T. I Huston, owners of the New York Yankees, had offered to place their entire team at the disposal of the Chicago team to replace the men he suspended. " "The league rules definitely say that no trades or transfers can be made after August 11." he explained, "so I know that such an act would not be sanctioned by the league, but It was a wonderful thing for them to do." President Ban Johnson of the American League could not be reached. When Ray Chapman, Cleveland shortstop, was killed Owen Bush of Detroit offered to transfer to Cleveland. Mr. Johnson said then It could not be don because of the league rule cited by Mr. Comlskey. WHAT THE WHITE SOX PLAYERS RECEIVED.
