NEW YORK. June 20. That there
will be A third major league, in organ
ized baseball with all the privileges
that the prefix "major" implies, oper
ating after the close of the present
season, is almost assured. .
After a lengthy session heTe today,
In which all the presidents of the Na
tional league cluos and several repres
entatives of the International League
took part, the National commission vir
tually decided that a third major or
ganization was neeessary to combat
the invasion of the new Federal
Governor Tener, of Pennsylvania, in
whom was instrusted the entire confi
dence of the National League club
owners, August Herrman. of Cincin
nati the presiding official and Presi
dent Ban B. Johnson, of the American
League, comprising the National com
mission which )s the high court in or
ganized baseball, were in a receptive
mood when a delegation from the In
ternational League called upon them.
The International delegates were Presi
dent Darrow, J. D. McCaffery, Toronto;
Jack Dunn, Baltimore, and J. J.. Stein,
Two Propositions Submitted.
Two propositions were submitted by
this committee. One of these was a
request for financial assistance for
some of the clubs and the other that
the draft privileges of the major
leagues be eliminated so that the In
ternational organization could retain
or sell its players instead of having
them taken at the waiver figure. The
latter plan seemed to be more feasible
to the members of the commission and
the proposition of President Johnson
to form a new major league to be com
posed of four clubs from each of the
International League and American
Association found Immediate favor.
President Barrow, the spokesman of
the party, announced after the quar
tet emerged from the meeting room
that the National Commission had con
sidered their request favorably and a
final answer would be given within
Johnson Verifies Report.
Later gn Ban Johnson verified this
statement and went a step farther by
"The plan to form a third major
league is practically consummated."
None of those present at the meeting
would consent to name the clubs which
would be taken Into the new organi
zation, but it was the general lmpres
eton that these would be Baltimore,
Buffalo, Newark and Toronto of the
International, and Indianapolis. Cleve

Just what would become of the
other clubs in these leagues was not
even suggested but it was thought that
they might bo formed Into a new minor

ACCEPTANCE OF WAGER
CIGAR DEALER 9200.
Ban Francisco Judse Says as Fan and
Citizen He Approves Prosecution
SAN FRANCISCO, June 20. (Spec
ial.) George Schmulian, proprietor of
an . O'Farrell-street cigar store, who
three weeks ago accepted money from a
policeman to bet on a baseball game,
pleaded guilty today to a misdemeanor
charge to keeping a gambling place
and was fined 1200. Attorney Timothy
Haley, special prosecutor, said that the
National pastime was threatened by
the gambling interests and that the
conviction f the gamblers would save
baseball from destruction, which had
befallen horse races and other sports.
Healy argued that gambling had
strangled other sports to death.
Attorney Harry Michael, for the de
fense, said that Schmulian had volun
tarily allied himself with the baseball
league to rid the game of betting, and
that last Thursday night he had intro
duced a resolution at a meeting of the
wholesale cigar dealers condemning
In passing sentence, Judge Deasy
said, he was In sympathy with the
prosecution, both as a fan and as a

arrest, would be continued, with at

John Welch, Jr., Despite Phenome

Intends to Quit Diamond for
fc EARL R. GOODWIN.
It you had a "Waiter Johnson arm
In the making," capable some day, per
haps, of pitching you into all the pos
sible glories to which America's pre
mier pitcher now is heir, would you
"forget it" and turn your nose in the
direction of "father's business"?
Yet, right here in Portland, is such a
new edition of a young Johnsoir-or a
young Mathewson, who considers his
truly phenomenal pitching career of
the last three seasons as only an Inci
dent of his school and university ath
letic days, to be laid aside within an
other year. -
The name of this young man Is John
Welch, Jr. You should spell it "John
nie" Welch in most of the amateur and
college towns of the state to have him
recognized, in print, for Welch doesn't

Welch is a Portland product. He Is
the son ot jonn u. weicn, ueuu ui i
Welch Dental Supply House, in the
He was graduated from the Wash
ington High of Portland In the class of
"11. He has been attending the Uni
versity of Oregon for three years, and
will be graduated next year. Incident
ally, his team mates at the close of the
present university baseball year put
the laurel wreath on his splendid work
'.a their behalf during the past three
seasons by naming him their captain.
In 1912, Welch, having left Washing
ton High, in Portland, entered Oregon
University. That year he won every
game he pitched for his school. In ad
dition he pitched enough amateur
games to bring his season's total of
battles up to 24. In those 24 games he
lost just one game. Johnson or
Mathewson never bragged of more than
that in their early careers.
Three Ont of 27 Games Lost.
Last year Welch pitched a total of
27 games. Including his university
games. Of those he lost three games.
One season of such marvelous work
might be called a fluke, but not so
with two such seasons. Fifty-one
games pitched, all won but four, cover
ing two years, can mean no fluke.
This year Welch has pitched in only
five games, all for his University of
Oregon team. The highest number of
hits made off him in any one of these
games was four. The average number
of hits made in these five games was
2 2-5. That Is getting pretty close to
Johnson or Mathewson form, as a third
But Welch's real mound genius lies
in his proved ability under stress of
excitement, with the tide of defeat
running away from his team, when he
is called upon to go in and win the

son. One was at Seattle, against Uni
versity of Washington; the other at
Corvallis, against Oregon Agricultural
At Seattle, in the middle of the sec
ond inning, the game stood 4 to 3 In
favor of Oregon, but Oregon s pitcher
had the bases filled on him. Welch
was hurried into the box. He not only
retired the side without further scor
ing, but pitched a no-hit game the re
mainder of the game, holding Seattle
to its original three runs.
At Corvallis. the Oregon Agricultural
College sluggers had pounded out five
runs in two innings, Oregon mean
while having only two. With 5 to 2
thus against him. Welch started with
the third inning and pitched another
no-hit game, Oregon Agricultural Col
lege finishing with its original five
scores, and Oregon meanwhile running
its score to 11.
These two games unquestionably
saved the pennant for Oregon for 1914.
Welch's surprise lies In his relatively
light weight, which is around 148
pounds. His great pitching strength
lies in his remarkable shoulder and arm
development. He has every kind of a,
ball, depending largely on great speed
and a wide curve in ms iiu
