President .lohnson of the American league said tonight. "Not only would we release these players," Mr. .lohnson added, "but wo also would look to the welfare ot their deiiendents. Contracts will not stand in the way of American league players who wish to fight in tlio defense of their country. We would encourage tlie spirit to enlist." President 'Johnson '.said tha^ the league would not suspend in the event of war. He called attention tQ the fact that the National league, during the Spanisli-.-Vmerican war, con-; tinued its schedules. Club owners of the American league have signed 8.5 per cent, of their players, Jlr. .lohnson said. The threatened strike of the Baseball Players' fraternity was declared to be broken. "Practically every star in the American league is now under contract," President Johnson said. The major leagues and the national baseball commission, Mr. Johnsori added, "are absolutely through .with the fraternity and David U ITiiUz, its president." ' A call was issued tonight for ihe schedule meeting ot the league to be held In New York February 5 5. The meeting of the national baseball commission will be held in New York,. February li. The commission, Mr. .Johnson said, will report on tlie appeal of minor leagues for the partial abolition of the draft rule. MAW READY IE OYEES' ALL iSED .

K is''poor ^economy to underpay the' men who are-in a position to help us." Mayor. Hardie: "it is all very well to advance-saliiriCH, but Mhow mo where the money is coming from." Commissioner Grace showed tiiat some titne ago he wont to the mayor and asked for $5 per month raise for the water wagon dolivery man. It was refused, and tlie man quit, in oriler to get a new man il was nocessavy to pay $65 per month. There have ijeen continual changes witli the result that the wfltfei' -wagon froze and it cost ?2()0 tor repairs. That was being penny wise and pound foollHli. Mayor Hardie: "!)' the men in one departnieiit are raised, the men in niy department -will have to bo raised too. I'm not going to be pai-tial. If they're not all raised equally I won't sign the - chequefi.": Commissioner Freeman: "If we're going to- run the town on sonviment, we liad better quit." Mayor Hardie: "At these times I think afly one man is as much entitled to a,raise as any oiluii- man." ; Commissioner Grai'o: "1 don't." The Stickley resolution was eventually signed' by CommissionorK Gi'ace and Freeman, Mayor Hardie: "] won't sign il." The mayor tliereupon raovt^d that ever.v'. man in the city's employ be given the same rate of increase of salary as was,granted lo Mr. Stickley. Coran^lssioner Grace-. "I'm against that." Commissioner Fiocman; "1 can't vote tor',it.'.'" Maydi;. Hardie: "1 don't want it passed tjut i want it to go on record as indicating my sentiments." The motion Avas declared lost. Commissioner Grace: "That was just a grandstand plaj-." Mayor Hardie: "It was no grandstand play. The boys at the front are not getting raises in their pay." Commissioner Freeman: "I'm not out to spend money. I'm out to make money for the city and must have efficient men, .and w^e have to pay them." Haying disposed of the Stickley matter,, the commissioners got down to a consideration ot salaries in gen-eral.-anjtl alfter'^'mueh discussion it was decidedrto put the war bonus pj-oposal Into effect. It'was'stipulated plainly, however; tliat the bonus is effective on a prorata basis. If a man works live days-a week he'gets live-sixths ot the $1.75 per- wefek bonus; he doesn't get it all-as-is tUe case with the miners. -^^r--^-^.^-r--1?^-The Bulldogs Are Capiltia^ , J Robins' 'Reysto�e King Ready to Quit if Pay Cheque is Amputated New York, Feb. S.-From Brooklyn comes the word that George Cut-shaw, second baseman ot the Dodgers, hat- decided to cut out baseball' and go to work during the summer. No definite reason; for Cutshaw's determination was given in the letter which reached Charles, *ut he has let it be known that no baseball magnate-Bbbets not barred-can cut his contract salary and get away with'it'. Cutshav,' is one of eleven Dodgers who saw the shine taken off several hundred gold dollars a season, but he is the only one 'viho has taken the stand .that it's better not to play at all than for the reduced figure.
