' , DANGEROUS GROUND, SAYS PRES. JAMISON OF OUR PROTEST Stating that to open the question of the forfeiture of games on the ground that a team had fifteen men In uniform might necessitate re-playlng of the schedule of the Blue Ridge League, President Jamison has replied to the Chambersburg directors, through President Hen-ntnger. Informing them that such a procedure would bankrupt all the clubs in the league. The protest against the Hagerstown feam and the claim of forfeiture of the two games played between tho Maroons and the Champs on September I and 2, was lodged by President Hennluger on September 2. in which it was charged that on both days Hagerstown had fifteen uniformed players. President Jamison forwarded a copy of the letter to President Richard Hartltt of the Hagerstown club informing hipi of the protest, In his reply to President Henninger President Jamison practically admits Hogerstown's guilt. He states: "AH the clubs in this league have violated this from time to time, as is shown by my umpires' report. I think you tread on dangerous ground when you open this subject so late. in the season. Am afraid if I undertake to throw out the games and fine for these offenses, will have to play schedule over and bankrupt , all the clubs In the league." In reply President Henninger takes itffue with the league president on the statement "all the clubs in this league have violated this from time to time as Is shown by my umpires' reports." declaring that "no umpire truthfully mad such a report" about the Cham-berPburg club. "Furthermore," continues the letter, "when we called the attention of Umpire Marks to the fact that Hagerstown had fifteen players in uniform at the game In Chambersburg on September 1 he advised us that the umpires had nothing to do with the players limit." Chambersburg directors do not believe that it would be necessary to. play over the games in which the players' limit rule was violated, as no protests were made at the time, or within forty-eight hours, as required by the league constitution. President Henninger incorporated tills argument in his reply to President Jamison. HELD IN CHECK BV SHIP SHORTAGE By JAMES HENLE, E. A. Staff Correspondent:) NEW YORK. Sept. 0 "The .. only thing that keeps the United States from having a million persons added. to its population daily is the lack of ships." The speaker was Frederick , A. Wali is. commissioner of Immigration here. On this day he had seen nearly fcOOO men, women and children of alien, birth pass through Kills Island, the nation's most important immigration station. "The flow of emigration that began with the war has been checked." Wallis continued. "Now the current has turned thp other way more strongly than ever. "If war restrictions were lifted and if shipping could be supplied, the entire population of Germany would decamp and' come to these shores. If there were enough . shipping every living soul in Poland would come here. " The same is true of other European coun- ; tries.-' ' "Only recently the heads of 1-7 important steamship companies' came to see me. They said that immigration was going to be simply stupendous and that they thought 1 ought to bts warned of this in time. "My own information tallies with theirs. The numbers constantly are increasing, though our average is not yet the 500 that has been reported. I am making preparation to care for even a greater number. I have just received permission to take on 95 new employes. "Every ship that comes to port has every available incn occupied. One company tells me that on the voyage of one of its ships it could have sold the capacity of the steamer for the next ten years." In reply to a question. Wallis told me that "he had no idta that large corporations were violating the law by hiring labor in Europe. He said that the Hood of immigration could be explained on other grounds food scarcity, high taxes,- unsettled conditions abroad. "We are getting immigration from almost all the countries of Europe and even from South America." Wallis said. "Italy, Poland, Greece, Scandinavia and Ireland- are some of them. Has Irish Immigration ended? My dear sir, to see them come in here you wouldn't think it had begun. "We are getting a very high class of immigration now; ' I shou' say that the new arrivals are ifie best class mat has ever coiae here since the founders of the republic landed." Wallis has been appointed to his post only recently. He has announced a policy of "humanizing" ths administration of Ellis Island and has discharged some employes plainly unfitted, because of lack of sympathy and understanding, for their work. DYING AT HANDS OF SER! LONDON, Aug. 20 iP.y A. P. Mall) Charges that the Serbian military forces have stopped a British and a Canadian mission from doing relief work in Montenegro are made by Alex Devlne of Winchester in a statement he has Just istiued. : Mr. Devlne describes himself as a friend of Montenegro whose "only interest in that country :s that it shall have the chance of -determining its own fate a right that ha been denied to Montenegrins alone of all the recognixed allied nations, owing to the forcible seizure of their country by Serbian troops." Mr. Devine denies the report jhat'he is a "paid agent" of Nicholas, formerly king of I Montenegro. Mr. Devine alleges that the British relief mission was prevented from entering Montenegro by the Serbian military forces acting on orders from Belgrade and undsr tnreats of violence was compelled to retire to a base in Italy. According to Mr. Devlne, the Canadian medical mission headed by Colonel Burn ham which had been operating in Montenegro for some time also has been stopped. He states that Colonel Burnham has appealed to the British foreign secretary for protection Informing the secretary that "the seriousness of the situation here, created by the Serbs, admits of no delay" and asking that the British government ensure t lie safety of the mission. Mr. Devine quotes Colonel M urn ham' as accusing the Serbians of seizing the boats and material of the mission and of terrorizing his people. Mr. Devlne says: "Colonel Burnham says that he has been threatened with assassination and that the mission is spied on to such an extent that even the sick are afraid to come to the hospital for relief. The colonel adds: " 'When the veil is lifted from the Ipek country there , will be found a condition of affairs which wil) come as a rude shock to those who have put their confidence and given their help to Serbia. The reign of terror is complete, there are not many Montenegrins, and in another year there will be none left. The entire country is mourning and it is no longer possible for these people to exif-t. many have lost their reason and all are in the direst distress. Montenegro is being done to death ' " The Martinsburg club is endeavoring to arrange a game here today, which would complete the Chambers-burg-Martlnsburg schedule. The game scheduled between, these two clubs for August 2 7 was cancelled on account of rain and if the arrangements are completed between the managements this morning the rain game will be played off at Henninger field this qftrnoon at 4:30, THIRD PARTY STUFF -HEL L O MILOREIO V WORLD TO BE REPRESENTED Delegates Will Be Present at Cleveland Convention, September 27-29, From All Countries. : AH roads will lead to Cleveland so far as the American Legion Is concerned when the second national con- vention opens in that dry on Septeni- her 27 to run for three days.
