The dlrectora went Into session at 8
e'clook. and a long parley was hold about
the jurlsdictlon of the directors ln the
Breenahan case. The debate ended wlth
the agreement that the owners had en?
tlre authorlty ln the matter. Then the
attorneya for each alde were called ln

$300 was palo furthwlth. The other 1-.

Veraatlon, and Rigler was anxlouB to dls
oern the color of aome of the Philadelphla

declded that while they had Jurlsdictlon
ln the rnatter they could not shock the
baaeball world by declding any thing, and
they placed the claim on ftle and went on
record as being against umpires acting as
