Details are not yet worked out but the tree will probably be at Armory Hall, and committees will be apoplnted at once. Many Hear Y. M. A. Speakers time President Peacock has named a nominating committee which In turn has nominated the old board of directors to serve for another year. A little Investigation, however, reveals that the condition of the Board so far The evangelistic and missionary work of tho Y. M. C. A. leaders IB this city on Sunday was most successful, and all Interested In the work art gratified at the large attendance an<f the general Interest manifested at the several meetings. As anounced, there were speakers In the several churches in the morn* Ing, hut Interest centered in the men's meeting at the Armory In the afternoon and in the mass meeting in the evening. The afternoon meeting was attended by some 200 citizens who heard an earnest and Interesting address by B. P. Pearson of IMS Angelos.

Fresno Breaks Up the_League Because the Fresno baseball management in the Valley League refused to pay for the meals of the Coallnga players last Sunday, the Valley League Is a thing of the past. Fresno has never yet been able to get" along with Its neighbors ,an<J the history of the latest league la but repeated history. The Republican, In "explanationing", says: Yesterday's broke the camel's back, resulted over squabble, which proved the straw that broke the camel's back, resulted over the payment of expenses. The crowd at Recreation Park was small and Manager Maul did not take in sufficient coin, at the gate to defray the traveling and hotel bills of the Toggerys. Maul was willing to foot his share of the bills, with the excep- I tion of the "eating bills." President on Brownsville WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.—President Roosevelt sent a special 'message to the senate this morning on the Brownville affair. He submits the reports of the Investigation by Herbert J. Brown and Captain \V. G. Baldwin atui snys it Is established beyond a doubt Jh.-it the colored soldiers did the shoot- Ing. Almost nil of the members of Company B were concerned In the shoot,lug iiml practically every man In companies C and D had knowledge oi' It. The President urges the reinstatement of any who tell the truth of what happened and recommends H law era- powering the secretary of war to reinstate any found innocent or In any way helping to bring the guilty to justice. as finances are concerned, are In a bad way. The Income averages only about $150 a month, when the secretary says there should be $12,000 or $15,000 a year to carry on the work of the commercial body. Indeed dur ing the past year, the board has run into debt $500, that amount being what is owed to a local bank on a note, and the prospects are not therefore encouraging. The nominating committee us named by President Peacock consists of Chas. Baer, E. J. Brb, Dr. Dwlgglns, H. I. Tupman and Ira Hochhelmer, and as stated this committee has recommended the old board 'for re-election. But some of the members of that board have different ideas about it, and arc inclined to the opinion that there should be some new blood and a new deal. It is suggested by one that since the monthly Income is so far below what is needed to properly carry on the work of tho board that perhaps a change might rusult in a betterment of the present unmitisfHC- lory condition.
