A second tclesram from I)nhnnR toMillfgan
was of practically the tamo contont.
Vnu dcr Ahe naya thia proves crooked work ou
tho part of ltushonif.
As the telegrams wcro not sent until after the
Association raco had ended, lioweer, and
when Ilushnns felt confident of Brooklyn win
ulna the World's Championship, it seems to
outsiders only fair to suppose that he and Mil
lican had promised each other a division of the
proflt which would accrue in case cither tho
Brooklyn or the fit. Louis Club won the Asso
ciation race, and that Uushong was anxious to
buy out his partner. , ...
Tho withdrawal of thn Brooklyn Clnb has
caused tho opening of all the vials of wrath that
have been bo long kept.in storo in tho Associa
tion. Lx.Conciosman O'Neill made a fiery speech
to-day in which ho accinod Brooklyn of very un-
avory things, and iaid tho Club would have
been driven out if it had not resigned.
lie did admit, however, somo sorrow at losing
President Byrno snld he had no reply to mako
to Mr. O'Neill, and that the publlo would recog.
nize tho animus of the attack.
