The perfect peace that was sup
posed to reign in baseball is on the
point of taking wings for parts un
known and another fight is in the
Federal league attorneys appear
ed before Judge Landis to have the
suit against organized baseball dis
solved, but the Baltimore team of the
former insurgent circuit has not been
placated and declared its intention of
fighting dissolution of the suit Law
yers representing the Baltimoreans
will be before Judge Landis Monday
with their complaints.
Then some information which has
been carefully kept from the public
may be revealed. In the peace amal
gamation the Baltimoreans were left
in the cold completely, holding a flock
of players and a ball park, but lack

to fight to a finish! Through them

firm foundation the majors could not
live, yet the big fellows show an utter
disregard for the welfare of their
minor brethren. This never was
more apparent than in the Federal
war when, though the majors were
! hurt to some extent, the fellows who
really bore the brunt of the trouble
1 and received the hardest wallops
were the bush people.
