Scrappy Philly President
Will Invoke Courts to
Gain His Point.
PHILADELPHIA. Ta., Nov. C Kvcn
though It may smash the National
League, Horace S. Fogel will fight to
tho end against President Lynch. Ho
will tako the matter tu the com Is, and
baseball men high in authority nio ex
pected to milt before allowing the
scrappy Philly mogul to go that far.
Baseball laws and regulations would not
stand five minutes In a court of law,
but Fogel will Invoke such assistance to
gain his point over I.jnch.
The National League faces a possible
disruption. In his dusiro to oust fogel,
Lynch has threatened to blacklist him
as a baseball magnate. Fogel Insists on
protecting his property Interests, and Is
not giving av nn Inch.
"Certain baseball men seem deter
mined to drive mo out of the game,"
sitld Fogtl today, '"i'heyenro not how
they doII,. so long as they do It
They're up against the leal thing now
thnt's all. I have been connected with
baseball a long time, and my experience
as a newspaper man tells me that I
have them Just where I want them.
They can't blacklist me, unless I ciult.
I'm not quitting.
"In some ways baseball laws aro dis
tinctly unfair, particularly to those ue
customed to obeying them ull their
lives, I'm not. you sec. I don't care
what happens to tho league. They
won't blacklist me while there Is a court
In" the land. They know It, too."
Fogel's jdand Is eausmg much shiver

ments urn expected within a day or so.

Talkative Cub Boss
CHICAjGO, Nov. 0. "The so-called

The constitution of tho National
Leaguo provides eight conditions aside
from resignation for tho teimlnatlou of
membership of any club, and In order to

fore, talk of expelling the niesent Cub
owner and substituting cnance or any
other magnate has no good foundation.
It fs undoubtedly true that Mr Mui
