THE ALLENTOWN DAILY LEADER. GOVERNOR STOPS IT Jeffries and Ruhlin Dare Not Fijht CInctinatl. I BALL PLAYERS HOLD MEETING Members Permitted to Sign Only American League Contract for the PresentHow Bcuta Ought to be Conducted. One of the most Important base batt conferences In the history of the game is on at Cleveland, where 60 delegates responded to the call of President Zlnv mer of the Players' Protective Asso ciation. At the close of Saturday's session Attorney Taylor gave out the following statement, which he said cov ered the entire meeting: 'The Base Ball Players' Protective Association, In conference at Cleveland, hereby makes the following offi cial announcement to the members of said association: "First. The cases of all the mem ,ber reported to have violated any of the rulea of the association have been referred to the Grievance be acted on by said committee after an investigation. ."Second. The association has at present, no knowledge as to any improper conduct on the part of any offi cer or member of the association. "Third. The association is in excellent condition, financially and in all other respects. "Fourth. Members who last year played in the American League are authorized to plan for the coming sea-Bon, in that league only, the new contract agreed upon between said league and our unsoclation. However, all such members are advised to send theli-contracts to the association attorney for inspection before signing. ''Fifth. No member shall sign a contract to play in the National, the Eastern League or the American Association until further instructions. "Sixth. No inomber who last season did not finish with an American League club shall sigh for the coming season in the American League until further instructions." The chief subject under discussion was the action to be taken against the National League if that organization did not give in to the players. Attorney Taylor said that the whole matter lay In the hands of the Executive Committee. "Wo have been trying to get some satisfactory answer from the National League," said Taylor, "but have failed so far. What Is the use of our working any farther on It. It is up to the National League." All Eastern and National 'League players are asked not to sign until they have received further Instructions. This Is a victory for the American League, as it can go right along ami sign its players, while the other two leagues will have to wait until some kind of an arrangement is reached. THEY DAREN'T FIGHT. More than 1000 business men of Cn-cinnatl, representing much of the bono and sinew of that city, sent a telegram to Governor Nash of Ohio, setting forth their reasons for giving aid and countenance to the Jeffries-Ruhiln tight. The telegram that Governor Nash received was as follows: "The undersigned believe themselves just as law-abiding citizens of Clncin. natl as those who telegraphed you under date of January 29. Eminent attorneys assert that there Is nothing Illegal in the proposed boxing contest, and we are satisfied that there Is nothing prejudicial to good order or the standard of morals. We believe this plan for raising money to pay a deficit incurred In extending the hospitality of our city towards visiting strangers Is entirely proper. The Saengerfest was neither a. private enterprise nor was the result due to any negligence or bad business management, as has been trroneously or maliciously charged. The payment of this debt concerns the city's honor, which should stand equal-fly as high in the eye,s of the world as its morals. The Saengerfest board is entitled to the sympathy and support f the people and should not be assailed and hampered by legal proceedings." The governor promptly sent the following reply: "Your telegram received. Unless all outward evidences and preparations tare at fault, the enterprise booked for Cincinnati on the 15th of February will be a prize fight and the entire power of the state will be used to prevent It." NATIONAL REGATTA. Philadelr hlans may be called upon to raise more than $2000, the amount necessary to defray the expenses of the National Regatta, in order to secure that event this year, for Boston stands ready not only to defray all necessary expenses, but to give tne National Association of Amateur Oarsmen a percentage of the receipts derived from the grand stand. Boston is the one city that has succeeded in making the Na- C A N FOOD DO IT? Importance of the Food Cure. To discover a food that will cure a nervous wreck is indeed a Godsend. Mrs. Stella Penal, 1227 West Thirty-first Street, Los Angeles, Oal., had a very remarkable experience. She says: "About twelve years ago, I was run over by a carriage and my spine Injured. My left arm was partially paralyzed, walking was difficult and 1 had continued pains and aches In my whole body. "To induce a movement of the bowels, I invariably had to resort to mechanical means. I would sit up In bed for hours, suffering colicky pains, caused by the non-digestion of the starch of the food. My heart was so weak that at times no pulse could be felt, and It seemed at times as If I must die. I fainted very often, sometimes lying in a half fainting condition for hours, unable to move or speak, though conscious. Shortly after Xmas Providence directed me to buy a box of Grape-Nuts food, which I have since eaten twice a day. "The Improvement in health has been wonderful; now I can eat and digest food, my bowels act naturally ana regularly, circulation Is) better, catarrh moderated, and I have gained much In weight and am better every way. 1 can read and think, while before, my eyes and brain felt too weak to do either. I can walk a long ways and hive not used my air cushion for worn time and I have no further need for It." This Is a direct demonstration of tho fact that Grape-Nuts food aurely doe rebuild the soft, gray matter in th bra! a and nerve centers, and any depleted person can prove this by use. One cannot get well of nervous troubles without the right sort of food to rebuild this curious Bubstance which is found in the brain, and this must be rebuilt from the food. Grape-Nuts food Is - made especially for the purpose. Uon&l Regatta pay. The Charles River course, while far from first class from the standpoint of the oarsmen, Is very convenient for spectators, and the grand stand proved a paying investment at the 1899 regatta. Which was held In Boston. The New Englanders were very anxious to secure the regatta last season, guaranteeing to pay the expenses of the Parts crip of the winning crew, but New York was given the event. While this year's regatta will hardly attract as much attention as last season's owing to the absence of any special feature, the National Regatta will always prove a drawing event, since it is there that the best amateur oarsmen of the country Come together. Oarsmen like the national course on he Schuylkill better than any other, and the rowtiyr clubs, taken as a whole, prefer Philadelphia in preference to any other city, owing to its central position, when all the organizations that make entries to the regatta are taken Into consideration. These facts may give Fhllauelphia the call, even though outbid by Boston, for in the long run the course that will call out the largest entry list is the one to be chosen without regard to money considerations. DONOVAN'S ACQUITTAL. The fact that Paddy Donovan and all the other followers of boxine from Philadelphia who were concerned in the boxing match at Philllpsburg, N. J., which resulted In the untimely death of Frankie Welch, were acquitted of ail blame was received with expressions of satisfaction, as Donovan has always been one of; the most popular of boxers. However, the testimony of the spectators who were put on the stand oausel no little surprise, since from their assertions it would seem that Donovan and Walch were fakirs of the worst kind, and that no 'blows that could he felt were delivered. For a fact, the bout was a good stiff one, with both men trying the best they knew how, but there was no animosity felt and neither man had any desire to do the other bodily harm. Bach wag anxious to win, just as he would had the contest been a foot race instead of a boxing match. The New Jersey laws, which make the spectator of a prize fight equally as guilty as the principals, probably had much to do with the testimony of the wito- ses, since to convict Donovan they would also be convicting themselves, vlt is a cause where the law makers In their endeavors to be . strict overshot the mark. The result of this trial Is another illustration of the popularity of boxing. It seems Impossible to get any jury to decide that the modern boxing contest la a prize flijht. The ordinary citizen can see a big difference between a boxing match and a prize fight, which the law makers, for Eome -reason or other have rarely been able to discern. RULES FOR BOUTS. A man who has given considerable thought to the sport of boxing suggests the following regulations for conduct ing the bouts: Boxing bouts to be held only in chartered athletic clubs. AH bouts to be In stakeless rings.with well-padded floors. Bouts to be six rounds of three minutes each. Program to be limited to four "bouts. Gloves to be six ounces. All boxers to be examined thoroughly by the city or ward phyelciams, and not to be allowed to box unless they have a certificate of health from such physicians. Boxers to be examined by club physician on the night of the contest. No contest to be allowed to continue to the point of brutality, and all contests to be stopped on notice from the police official In charge. ALLENTOWN POST OFFICE.

The Hazel Dell Slate Co. of Slating- ton, owned and operated by Roper & Rice, James Paules foreman, made one day recently the largest a.mount of roofing slate ever produced in the slate regions In one day of nine hours with the same nunvber of workmen. The slate blocks were sawed by William Paules and John N. Williams. The blocks of slate being good, the workmen concluded to try what they could do in one day If they let themselves out. By actual count at end of the day it was found that three blocks had produced 107 squares of roofimj slate. This has never been equalled In tho slate regions, and considering that 21 squares is counted a fair day's work, is certainly phenomenal. The splitters were Chas. Stettler, Huffh O. Griffith and Abraham Lewis and the dressers were George Henritzy, James Jone3 and George Kidd. They say when their record Is beaten they will try again. DEATH OF LEVI KAUFMAN, Levi M.

Of the 32,500 men required at once for the reorganization of the United States army it is expected that Pennsylvania will furnish a very large proportion. Lieutenant Colonel D. J. Cralgie. who is in charge of the recruiting stations in this state, Delaware and the border counties of New Jersey, said that the government will have no difficulty in securing all the men needed, and that this state will furnish the pick of the army. In discussing the matter Colonel Cralgie said: "Pennsylvania furnishes the very best soldiers In the world, and more than her share. We never send out any rowdies from this state, and have never bad any of our recruits dismissed. We have a wonderful field of good, sturdy men to pick from, and we neve: consider applications from those who do not come up to absolutely every requirement' of the department. Tile 12th Regiment has come to be known a! the 12th Pennsylvania, because nearly every man in the communj hails fr..:n this state, and most of them put on their first uniform In the FhiIadeliW recruiting office." READING A TRUNK LINE. M'LEOD'S DREAM'S SOON TO BE AN ACCOM PLISHM ENT. If present plans are carried out. it is said that the Lehigh Valley will soon become part of the Reading system, thereby giving the latter an entrance to Buffalo. With the Lehigh Valley the Reading will become a full-fledged trunk lino and be able to make advantageous connections ftr through business between the East and West. With both the Jersey Central and the Lehigh Valley the Reading would control a large majority of the anthracite mining lands and it would have two outlets to New York. The merger of these three companies will restore the big commission that was formed by J. P. Morgan & Co. in 1892 and placed in charge of A. A. Mc-Leod. At that time bol-h the JerseyL Central and Lehigh were leased tA the' Reading, but this was declared Illegal by the Courts. Reports show a greatly increased death rate from throat and lung troubles, due to the prevalence of croup, pneumonia and grippe. We advise the use of One Minute Cough Cure in all these difficulties. It is the only harmless remedy that gives Immediate results. Children like it. H. L. Keiper, 41 NortU Savanth Street. (MM ft few 1
