H. j Af., which takes place in November. ,,"Mike" Quinn, of Quebec, explained that he had sold the Quebec franchise, rights and privileges to Percy Quinn of Toronto, and intimated that �he was desirous, of transferring the Quebec franchise to Toronto. Eventually, tit was unanimously decided to ratify the sale and tov'grant to Percy Quinn the same rights previously enjoyed in the X. H. L. by the Quebec hockey club. TMr. Lichtenhein made ft clear that the Wanderers were prepared to so ahead If other clubs were willing, but niovedthat the N. H. L. impend'oper- ations. This was seconded by George Kennedy, of the Canadtens. Toronto aud Shamrocks fought -i?aius.t the plan aud thought that the N. H. L. should continue. Ul'timotely it was a vote of 3 to 'I to suspend. There was a lengthy conference between Canadiens and Ottawas. the only remaining clubs in the National Association. None of the delegates were able to say, however,, what had transpired. Hence, with the N. H. L. suspended for the time being the NT H. L. owners refusing to declare themselves, the hockey haze would appear thicker than ever.

' W/.v/////////////////////^^^^ No gas-no fuss-no muss- Won't blow out in the wind- Won't spill over and burn the tube JPOU MOTOR PARLORS^ LTD. "THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" Chicago. Oct. l.-^-Turning their backs upon baseball until the German legions shall' have been driven back across Tfie Rhine, members of the Cub machine, who won the National league championship, but could . not garner the world title, have scattered far and wide, complying with the order of the provost marshal general, either to work or fight. Among the men who in normal times would be counted on for several seasons more of baseball on the "big time," but \who under present j conditions probably will not. don the | umform again, Fred Merkle stands ; pre-eminent. The last out in the game i at Boston oh September 11 - sounded ! "taps" on Merkle's baseball career, 'one of the most stormy and the most interesting in the game's history. The Chieago~first sacker Himself admits h"e is "all throngh." _He has ^gone back to his farm and'"will" de-' vote the "remainder of his life to agri* 'culture, with an occasional-ball game from the bleacher for relaxation, he-says. .' " Merkle to Retire Merkle announced his retirement in this statement: "I am mighty glad that I never reached the point where I began to slip back toward the minors. I often wondered what I would do when I . reached that point, but instead of my j quitting, the old game the game has qiiit me, and' I'm. able to retire with some measure of honor at the close of one of the most successful seasons I ever had. . "I am glad to quit, too, and go back ! j to, the farm. I've been on the big ; time for a long while and,for the last j-few seasons I've missed some of the j old pep. Every spring it has been a little more difficult to get into condition and the time would have come soon when .1/would have found myself sitting on the bench, waiting for a chance to bat in a pinch', while some fresh youngster showed me up on first. Then would have come the" release and after that the minors. I'm glad I'm through." Others to Quit Game George Tyler, the pitcher, probably has gone'forever. Local fans do not) ! believe the old timers will come back j after - a layoff that promises to lai('. several years. Bill Killifer will continue to throw baseballs when he is not throwing hand grenades in the army, as will also Charley Hollocher. Bob O'Farreil and Bill McCabe. Rollle Zei&er, another "old timer, who probably *will j never play big league ball again, has retired to his farm. Phil Douglas is booked for a job in the Alabama Power company of Birmingham; Wortman has a job with a Baltimore drydock company. Nick Carter will pitch for the Virginia Du-Ipont company team and do a little- J very little-work in the mill between 'games. Charley Pick will go to work in a San Francisco shipyard as soon as he can reach the Pacific coast. Claude H&ndrix and ."Hippo" Vagghn have' announced they probably will remain in Chicago and seek wartime jobs. "Hippo" expects to stage a comeback in baseball when the war Is over, but Hendrix, with long years of faithful service with the'big show behind, him, }s not so confident. Flack will work as a surveyor for a railroad construction company near his home at Belleville, III. Turner Barber is hesitating between a job in :i munitions plant with a chance to play ball ou the side and a season as understudy to some farmer.

' � ', "Additional prisoners and more cannon were captured, but it has not been possible to count them." British Official Statement London. Sept. 35.-The text of the British statement readsj "In operations yesterday north . of St. Quentin, the Midland division alone took 4,000 prisoners and 40 guns..... .."Between Belllcourt and Gonnelieu the enemy resistance yesterday was stubborn. � American, Australian and English troops had "heavy fighting until the late evening. In spite of the strong opposition they gained ground and took many prisoners. "At Bony and Villers-Guislain, hostile counter-attack's in the latter part Df-the day pressed us back slightly to the western outskirts' of those villages. Elsewhere our gains . were main-v talned and to the north of Gonnelieu further progress was made in the evening in the direction of Les Rues des Vignes. "Heavy* fighting also. occurred yesterday afternoon on the letfof the battlefront. Our advanced troops, who pad' taken wibencheul-au-Bac and/had entered Arleux, were compelled to withdraw from these villages.

"Gen. Plummer's army,'after "capturing the Messinea-Wytschaete ridge, encountered very strong resistance. The enemy vainly attempted to defend the approaches to the river Lys and suffered very heavy losses especially in Ploegstert .wood. "At the end of the day, the BrltlBh army had gone beyond a line from the eastern edge of Ploegstert wood to Gaehert to St, Tenbrlelen to Ter-hard to Dadizele.' E Woman Entitled to Recognition -War Could Not Be Won Without Them. Washington, Sept. 30.-President Wilson today stepped' Into the breach ~ot -the senate fight over the woman suffrage resolution aud in a personal address in the" senate chamber asked for its passage as a war measure. ' "I regard the concurrence of the senate in the constitutional amendment proposing the extension of the suffrageto women as vitally essential to the successful prosecution of the great war of humanity in which we are engaged,"--the president said. "I have come to urge upon you the considerations which have led me to that conclusion. It> is not only my privilege,'it is also thy duty to apprise you of every circumstance and eie-1 ment involved in this momentous struggle, which seems to me to affect its very process and its utmost. Continuing the president said: "This war would not have been fought either .by- the other nations engaged or by America if it had not been for "the services of the women- services recognized in every sphere- not merely -in the fields of efforts in which we have been accustomed to see them work, but everywhere men have worked and upon the very skirts and edges pfth,e ba�tyei.U*elt".-. .?'.,�. "We shall not only be ' distrusted but shall deserve to be distrusted if we do not_enfranchise them with the OF GERMAN DEFEAT London, Sept. 80.-The military correspondent of the Manchester Guar-dlani says, that tho Bulgarian : overtures for an armistice and peace are much, .more' than an admission ..that Bulgaria is defeated; they' express her formal verdict that Germany, has lost the' war. ' Bulgaria came into the war on the strength of her conviction that Germany was invincible, says the correspondent. "When her front was broken through last week Bulgaria must have asked Germany and Austria .what measures they could take,to save her and the recent proposal of Bulgaria -shows the character of the answer." An officer of the Emergency Fleet Corporation has taken over a boarding house in Mobile, Ala., following a dispute over rent payable by shipyard workers. /' fullest possible enfranchisement, 88 it is now. certain that the^ other great free nations will' enfranchise them. We cannot isolate our thought and- uc-tion in such a matter from the thought of the rest, of the world. We must either conform or deliberately reject what they propose and resign the leadership of liberal others.

"And not to the winning of the war only, .it la vital to the right solution of the great problems we must settle aud settle immediately when the war Is over. We shall need them in our vision of affairs, as. we have never needed them before, the sympathy and insight and clear moral instinct of the women of the world., The problems of that vtime will strike to the roots of many'thinga that we have not hitherto questioned and' I. for one believe, that our safety In those questioning days, as well as our comprehension of matters that touch so.ciety to the quick will depend upon the direct and' authoritative participation of women in our counsels. We shall need their moral sense to preserve what is right and fine and worthy in our syBtem of .life i0 ;years.
