The foregoing statement was made by Clark Griffith, boss of the
Nationals, during a fanning bee in his office eterday afternoon
It is believed that Owner Frank Farrell, of the Yankees, hopes
o land either Frank Chance or Fielder Jones In fact, Tones will be
in Chicago to-morrow, and it is rumored that he is slated for a con
ference with Farrell. In cae the New ork magnate cannot land
Tone:, he will lcac no stone un-y

line pnff. the Old Tox wa asked.
" How about Frank Chinee retiring from

New lork. Dec 5 Roger Bresnahan,
deposed manager of the St Louis Car
dinals Kcored a telling blow In his fight
for the recognition of a four jears con
tract when, before the board of direc
tors' of the Kitlonal League this after
noon at the Waldorf Hotel, he Induced
h's late employers to submit the matter
to arbitration If a few minor details
can be arranged, and the respective ar
bitrators shown before to-morrow after
noon, the National League will have
washed Its hands of a very unpleasant
dutj. while, for the first time since the
national peace agreement waa sub
scribed to by organized baseball, the
civil courts vill pass upon the validity
of organized baseball law
When the meeting of the board of di
rectors of the National League finished
to-daj's session the warring parties had
both tentative!) agreed to arbitration
before a referee In the State of Mis
souri This means, in shor.. a trial bj
common law Missouri boasts an arbi
tration law which permits the calling of
witnesses and the placing of them under
After legal argument the referee bands
down his decision which Is as binding
In law to the concerned parties as any
Jury verdict It but remains for the
counsel of Mrs. Helen Hrltton and Roger
Hresnahan to reach a written agreement
embodying the terms to which the lnter-
ted parties verbally subscribed to-day
If this written agreement Is presented to
the National League board of directors to
morrow the case will be closed, so far as
baseball law Is concerned
rtoirer Han Tito Contracts
Otherwise the National League will be
forced to pass upon the matter It went
upon record to-dav as having full power
to dispose of the dispute Perhaps the
National League might not so readily
have agreed to Bresnahan s recourse to
common law had nothing but a baseball
contract been Involved Bresnahan how
ever had two contracts One was the
usual formula to which diamond athletes
subscribe and In which the re-erve cLiuse
under which the Duke was dismissed on
ten davs notice) was -ubscrlbed The
other was a plain ordlnsr business con
trad l.ikt the playing contract this
ailed for a salarv of JlOOno a veir an 1
an additional li per cent of the net I rofits
of the club Arthur N Sager who with
George Priest Is irtiug as counsel for
Bresnahan drew up this instrument
The National League magnates almost
without ejkCtptlon believe that Bresnahan
has alreodj won his cas" August Herr
mann chairman of the national com
mission rejected the sentiment of his
colleagues when he expressed himself as
convinced of the valid tt of Bresnahan s
Roger has an iron clad contract,
said Herrrnann It will stand the test of
both civil and baseball law He had
a stipulation that whether he plajed or
not he should continue as manager of
the St Louis National League clnb St.
Louis claims he invalidated his contract
bv not giving the club his best plalng
services Now ft does not look as if
an man possessed of Bresnahan s brains
would with a 10 per cent interest in the
net earnings of his team delib
eratelv jeopardize his financial revenues
Bresnahan developed Wlngo one or the
best catchers In the league If he had
been gubt) of all the tr acher) insln
uated I cannot conceive of wh) three
other clubs should be so anxious to e
i urc his services, now that the Cardinals
have cast him off Cincinnat Pittsburg
and Chicago are all fighting to land him.
Fred Clarke the) sa), is willing to pa)
Roger J100O1 a vear Murph) Is read)
to talk business too as soon as Bresna
han adjusts his differences with M. lyiuls
But I am In th. field and If either Mur
ph) or Drevfuss lands this fellow he
will have to do some tall bidding That
doesn t look as if Bresnahan is such a
has been or Is such a grave offender
against organized ball '
The final outcome of Bresnahan s case
rests Indirect!) with this ifternoon s de-
ve'opment If the case is decided by the
National League Roger can scarcely
lose, for sentiment as well as justice
favors him His lawjers are indifferent
as to whether the matter goes to the Vanus . sr i.artrr
