ISFZCI AXi TZLTGRAM TO TBX DISrATCH.1
KewXoek, December 19. To get some
idea of the course to be pursued in the de-
fense of John "Ward in the approaching
equity suit, to be instituted by the National
lieague, a Dispatch reporter tday inter
Tiewed ex-Judge Howland, ot the firm of
Anderson & Howland, who will be asso
ciated with Judge Bacon in the conduct of
all, cases brought against the players. Judge
Howland was shown the statement made by
Counselor Duyster for the other side; said
Judge Howland: "As far as the statement
of Mr. Duyster that the present contract
was not a form of contract forced upon the
players by the National League magnates, but
one which the players demanded, is concerned,
can say unhesitatingly that it is not correct.
A man at that time was at the complete mercy
of the magnates. None of the clubs working
under the national agreement would employ a
player who bad been placed on the reserve list
by a manager of a club which had employed
the player the previous year and they sold
. them without regard to all rights and justice,
SCORES THE MAGNATES.
No; the League magnates made that con
tract themselves and without any consultation
with the players. The latter were asked, after,
the contracts had been perfected, to acquiesce
In the conditions, and after some modifications
they consented, including the eighteenth
clause. "What the meaning of that clause Is
the Court will have to determine after a full
presentation of the manner in which the clause
was placed in the contract, and the construc
tion given to it by practice and by representa
tion of the managers."
nirt nnt the nlaven. in siiminir that con-
tract, agree to accent all the provisions of the
same, including the'reserve clause?"
Ym! lint what does the word reserve mean
In this particularT Absolutely nothing. In
the Crst place, tne piayer contract to puj im
seven months, and no longer. ,
THE EESEBVE CLAUSE.
That breaks all the effects of the reserve
clause. Then, again, the jwoti reserve was not
placed in the contracts, so that an option could
be bad on a player's services for more than a
year, and it was so explained by the magnates
to the players at the time of signing. Is it a
hardship to be held for two years It is a very
great hardship, indeed, if you sign to do one
thing and you are compelled todo another, just
as the League magnates want the playes to do.
It's a bigi mistake to say that the reserve
clause means the holding of a player for two
years. It Is a well-known fact that there have
been players held for a longer time and not
asked to sign a contract either. 1 express no
fears of the result of any application made to
the court of the injunction alter it is in full
possession of the facts."
ZIMHEP. IS THE LATEST.
IHe'Deserta the Brotherhood and Signs an
Old League Contract.
fSTXCMLl TZLMBAM TO TBI DISPATCH t
Cleveland, December 19. Charles L. Zim
mer, the crack catcher of the Cleveland Leagne
team of 189, to-day affixed bis signature to a
League contract for 1890. Zimmer signed a
Brotherhood document several reeks ago -and
received 1200 advance" money. He says be did
not read the contract carefully, and when be
did finally peruse it found clauses that be se
riously objected to.
To-oaybe came down town, saw Secretary
Hawley. and after some talk tbey visited At
torney E wing's office. -The latter examined the
contract and stated that it was not binding,and
that Zimmer would be perfectly safe in con
tracting to play with the League. 3 he $200 was
returned to Al Johnson, and Zimmer signed the
League contractfat a comfortable increase over
his last year's salary.
Zimmer sent the following telegram to "Ward:
"John M. Ward, New York City: Please ac
cept my resignation as a member of the
Brotherhood. (Signed) Chas. L. Zimmer." His
letter to Al Johnson, with a 200 draft inclosed,
was as follows: "Mr. Al Johnson: I hare
hereby availed myself of the right which all
men have, of withdrawing from any society or
organization with the workings of which they
may have become dissatisfied. Inclosed please
find the I2001oaned me December 5. (Signed)
Chas. L. Zimmer." After these details had
been concluded Zimmer signed a personal con
tract with the Cleveland League team for three
years. It was not a question of money that in
fluenced him to this action, for he actually re
ceives less than promised by' the Brotherhood.
He says that he is disgusted with the way in
which the concern is run. and breathed easy to
day for the first time since be was foolish
enough to sign the agreement last summer.
ilELDS FOR THE PLATERS.
He Accepts Advance Money From manager
Banlon and Declares Himself.
According to a dispatch received from Han
Ion by the local Brotherhood officials yesterday
"Jocko" Fields has definitely cast his lot with
the new League, and will play in this city.
Manager Hanion's dispatch was to the effect
that Fields bad accepted his advance money
from the Brotherhood, and would certainly
play with the Pittsburg Brotherhood club. This
would seem to settle the matter. No news has
been received from Carroll yet.
Regarding the new grounds Mr. Kerr said
yesterdays There is plenty of time to get
the grounds ready, and they will be easier put
In shape than many people imagine How
ever, we are prepared to t-pend monev, and if
there Is a fight we'll be there. But 1 fail to
see why there shonld be any bitter feeling in
the matter. If the public is disposed to sup
port one dnb in preference to another, why.
let It go that way. If all this bitterness of
feeling was imported into any of the other
businesses in the city, why, we would be in
continual misery. Yes. Hanlou states that
Fields has accepted our advance money and
has emphatically declared himself on our side.
Dave Orr may come here, bnt there is nothing
certain about any other players that I know
of. Manager Hanlon is bustling after some

DOWff'ON THE LEAGUE.
Strong: Words Amies Those Who
Sign Two Contracts. i
The Clipper, an out-and-out supporter of the
Brotherhood, has the following to say about
the system of signing two contracts:
Ho one questions the Integrity of the National
League magnates, yet it hardly seems the proper
thing for some of those gentlemen to stoop to
means that will In any way cast a reflection on
their transactions. The fact that some of them
have been guilty of encouraging their old players
in dishonest dealing, by inducing them to sign a
second contract, is not commendable, ir the play
ers haye been guilty of auy wrongdoing, or have
violated any baseball law, then redress can be ob
tained by air and honorable means. On the other
hand, IT the players are in the right, then those men
who were weak enough to sign two contracts will
certainly be punished. No honorable person can
admire anyone who would be entity of double
dealing, such as some of the players have done by
signing two contracts. It the players are In the
wrong, and the conrts so decide It, then the old
clubs can obtain their players, or as inany of them
as ther want, without resorllns to underhand
means, but If they are In the right! then they have.
ine prior claim to tne serricesoi an inese men who
haTe signed two contracts. The excuses these men
have offered for their action of signing two con
tracts are very weak. If they bad no faith In the
new leagne. why did not they wait nntll the matter
had been settled In the conns? If the decision bad
been against the new leagne, then they could have
frone to the old League with a clear conscience,
eellng that thev only did what they thought was
right. As it Is, they will be despised by every
honest thinking person. Then, on the other hand,
shonld the case be settled In favor of the new
league, where will these men be and who will
have any faith In themf

Pittsburg club, but it was provisional, and the
Pittsburg officials have not asked him to sign.
Our leagne is under the national agreement,

London, December 19. Many of the most

quote the language of one of the lights of the
Gerrard Street Circle: "Matches are made for
too large amounts. Whenever there are great
stakes there will be fraud and collusion.
Better men than are now in the ring have
fought for 50 a side, yet SnlIlran has the
effrontery to demand thousands for facing

THAIER'S BIG OFFBR
Ho Makes n Statement to Teemer About the
McKeesfobt, December 19. Charles H.
Thayer, of Boston, says in abetter to John
Teemer to-day: "Knowing there will be con
troversy for possession of the world's cham
pionship title,! bave suggested the great re
gatta for the leading oarsmen of the country,
to last for two or three days, for the different
contests to settle the championship question
and receive financial benefits from the purse I
will offer, and I desire to learn your views."
He is getting the views of the oarsmen on
the matter. Teemer answered, as he did before,
that be thought it the proper thing, and that
be could be counted on to take part in it. Ha
is of the opinion that it is probably better than
the sweepstake Idea, and is of the opinion that
oarsmen shonld each put up an entrance fee
beside the $5,000 parse of Mr. Thayer, as it will
make it all the more Interesting to the oars
men. This, he says, would be similar to tne
great international regatta which was
rowed in London on the Thames in 1870.
He is ready for it and hopes that it will
be a go. In the event of Mr. Thayer's regatta
taking place he will postpone bis Australian
visit. Speaking of the remarks of James A.
St. John stating "that Teemer has no right to
claim the championship," Teemer says:
"What's wrong with St. John nowt Has he
come back to aquatics again after retiring pos
itively forever T I did not and do not claim the
championship title. I lay no claim to it;
neither did I make remarks of any kind to be
construed that way; but I mean to contest for
it. I am a candidate for it, and I am going to
compete with all professionals who row for it.
That's all the claim I bave to it. I hope to row
for it whenever It is to be rowed for. Neither
O'Conner or any oarsman In America has any
claim to the title; If It belongs to anyone it is
to Stansbery. Searle dereated O'Connor,
Kemp and Stansbery, ana the latter gave him
the hardest of the three races. This is my
reason for saying that Stansbery can lay claim
to the title."

St. Pattl, Mnra., December 19. It is ex
pected a special meeting ot the Western Asso
ciation managers will be held immediately
after the holidays to Invite the St. Louis and
Louisville clubs to join the Western Associa
tion. The St-Paul and Minneapolis managers
are enthusiastically in favor of the project.
President Thompson, of St. Paul, said this
afternoon that such a move had been expected
for some time, and intimated that letters had
already been passing Mr. Thompson said he
was certain that no attempt would be made to
reorganize the American Association, and that
if St. Louis played ball at all in 1890 it would
be with the Western Association.
Mr. Von der Abe's remarks in New York
yesterday were a hint at what be intended to
do. If Louisville asks to come m the Ken
tucky club will be admitted without question.
Mr. Thompson was in donbt as to what would
be done abont the number of clubs. The
organization is now composed of eight clubs,
and the admission of two more would make a
ten-club leagne. He was not in favor of drop
ping Sioux City and Des Moines, because both
had raised enough money to guarantee them

themselves. The votes ot both St. Paul and
Minneapolis will be cast in favor of a ten-club

A busy day was put in at the metropolis

the metropolis. Advantage was 'iaken of
the morning sunshine, and early in the fore
noon a large party of the delegates enjoyed
a drive overjthe Brooklyn bridge. Nearly
half an hour was spent upon the bridge. The
ladies devoted another day to the big shops,
which bave inexhaustible attractions for
them, and nearly all the gentlemen of the
party spent the day downtown. The Equit.

Halt an hour was spent in the parjors of
the Lawyers' Clnb. Breakfast was served in
the large dining room of the club. At its
conclusion Vice President Alexander for

the society. The company indorsed with a
round of cheers the society which Mr. Alex

Senor Castellanos, ot Salvador, the lawyer
of the delegation, said a word in Spanish

was glad, he said, to bear testimony to the
world-wide eminence of the American bar,
and to express bis appreciation of the ex

momenta, and then Mr. Hughes, of the com
mittee which was escorting them, called for
three cheers for the New York Stock
Exchange. The delegates responded
heartily, and the thousand mem
bers on the floor crowded over in
front of the gallery and returned the compli
ment with vigor. Then the boys out of com
pliment to the visitors, no doubt gave a prac
tical demonstration of their powers In financial
pyrotechnics. The bulls were in control, and
the Missouri Pacific pole happened to be near

party was congregated. They picked up that
stock and sent it kiting. An advance of two
points,representlng a gain in market value of
$2,000, was made before they stopped their

President Bull explained that the transac

$100,000,000 in a single day, and the delegates
looked amazed, and some of them politely in
credulous. Some of the brokers caught sight J
of Inspector Williams- stalwart ngure at tne
opposite end of the gallery, and they greeted
him with all manner of jocose remarks. Tbey
challenged bim to come upon the floor, without
club, and offered to make it lively for him
perhaps in payment of old scores.
From the Exchange the party walked to the
Chamber of Commerce, which they reached at
230 o'clock. They rested for a few minutes be
fore the exercises which bad been arranged,
and in the interval General Sherman" entered,
escorted by Mr. Hughes. The delegates greeted
him with great enthusiasm, and the old warrior
held quite a reception. President Charles S.
Smith made a short aadress of welcome. Dele
gate Aragon, the only merchant among the for
eign members of the conference, responded.
The Chamber of Commerce ot New York and
other public-spirited institutions, he said, fur

members of the conference In their efforts '
General Sherman was introduced by Presi

Scbantok, December 19. Hon. T. V.Pow
derlyfumishesa lengthy statement of bis diffi
culty with Hon. Edward Callagban of Scott
dale, which led to the present prosecution for
conspiracy. In substance it is as follows:
The commencement of this trouble dates back to
tbe appointment of a committee of Knights of
Eabor in the spring of 1887 to watch legislation In
tbe Interests orworklnamen as it came before the
Ueneral Assembly of Pennsvlvanla. This com
mittee was appointed by a convention called by
Mr. Powderly. He Heard no more or tbe matter
until March 2, 1683, when he received a letter from
Edward Callaghan, stating that the committee
neglected its dnty, and that tne writer was re
liably informed tbat members who stood high In
tbe order did not want the committee's reports
published. In replyto this Mr.Powderlywrote tbat
he had not been before apprised that the commit
teenegleetedltsdnty.andatany rate tbe matter
was not In bis hands, in conclusion, Mr. Pow
derly requested Sir. Callaghan to give his au
thority for stating tbat ' 'members who stood high
In tbe order do notwant their reports published, "
asking this under the seal of the General Master
On March 7, Mr. CaTlaghan wrote his reply tell-
lnjrilr. Powderly that "hewpnld see blmin
and the. order on top- of him" berore hewonld
aire him under the seal ot setrecy what was al
ready public iproperty Re also said that Mr.
Powderly was derelict In his dnty In not having
tbe committee report to him, and at best the com
mittee was a sham.-
Mr. Callaghan then gave the history of his cor
respondence with Mr. PovWerly. and said that
after his last letter Sir. Powdeily circulated an
infamous lie abont bis letter to blm and thus be
Injured his political chances badly. "I fen by the
hands of supposed friends. " said Mr. Callaghan,
' 'but 1 rise again to expose the villainy of labor
organizations when the Interests of their pets are
Sometime In June a convention was held for the
purpose of nominating a candidate for Assembly
man In tbe Scottdale district. On June H Mr.
Poirderly received another letter In whleh Calla
gban Informed blm tbat tie was "tbe most con
temptible, the most hateful and the most design
ing villain who ever escaped a halter." He ac
cused Mr. Powderly of vllllfylng bim by circula
ting the stories which led to bis defeat. "Had
you published mj letter," he declared, "yon
wwuld have saved me. but. If you had published
Ityoa would have-exposed your own treachery to
tbe Enlfrhts of Labor, and you sacrificed me to
Mr. Powderly told a reporter to-day that ho
knows nothing of the present case except what he
has seen In the newspapers, but supposed that It
js a renewal ux lue cnarge oi conspiracy.
Powderly thinks tbat there Is no doubt that his
name has been used by Callaghan's opponents,
bat be says he 4s not responsible for tbat. Tbe
libel Is not against Callaghan, bnt against hlm-
eeir, ior, aiinougn ne is tnorougniy innocent in
the matter, he has been subjected to persecution
and damaging allegations.
