terday-afternoon at tho local ofllcei
of Ban Johnson, president of the Amer

present Tom Lynch, president of thi
National League, and John T. Brunl
and Frank J. Farrell, owners of thi
National and American League club
of the big clty. At the meeting every
thing pertalnlns to the series was dls
cussed. The fact that the two raos
lmportant members of tho Natlona
Commlssion were on hand shows clear
ly that there wlll be no lnterfercno
from the Supreme Court of baBeball.

there were several obstacles in tn

been retained to take part ln the pre

been lukewarm to the proposltlon. wt
even more so when chosen to lead tr

Then, too, there was somo opposltio
from Ben Shlbe, president of the Atl
letlcs, who belleved that owlng to tl
proximity of New York to Philadclph:
a series between tho two New Yor
clubs might detract from the world

quiet was restored. C. A. Bland, leader
of the progressive element, claimed that
the chalrman of the convention was not
giving his slde falr pfay, and led two
thlrds of the delegates from the hall,
and another convention was held.
The rctiult ls two organlzatlorts, two
