Leaguet It lias cost me much time and
the office was accepted at a consider?
able sacrifice," he said last night. 'It
was largely because 1 felt that through
years of Intimate association with
baseball affairs, both as a player and
in an exec ttlve cupaelty 1 might bo
of use to the boys throughout the city
that I was indued to accept the Job.
I do not m<an to say that I do not
enjoy amateur baseball, I do an 1 : ?
docs my wife. Hut this thing of say?
ing that l have .e.-n guilty of malfea?
sance In office Is going too far.
"You may rest assured ehut some?
body will have to give an accounting
lor using any such expression. It Is
:n absurd. I do not hold an ofllc
to which a salary Is attar hed. I am
in office merely to help the players
So tar as 1 can learn, no member of
the Collegians Is responsible for this
Ungracious talk. I expect to see the
author of the story and from h'tn
lenm the name of his Informant. Then
I shall see the Informant, and if the
two cannot agree I shall bring them
"My wife has been harassed all day
answering tricnds who have called her
over the telephone to inquire a? to
whether the Kate.u referred to in the
story is me. Any one not knowing
the true conditions might suppose that
I was on a plane with a hawk robber
or a second-story worker, or some
criminal who was running amuck and
distiii-Kiie the peace of the people, so
far as the facts are concerned, they
amount to the following:
?I did not allow the Collegians two
games which wore forfeited by tho
Athletics, because only one: of the
games was scheduled, and I was not
notified. The second game was In
question: and I determined to Inves?
tigate before giving a final decision.
Ih this I was upheld privately, at It as!
b) s. veral members of the commission.
The two games which-were forfeited
by the Athletic- to the Battle Ave
w. re regular scheduled tames, and as
the Athletics fail"d to place a team on
the field, the victortes went to the
Battle Axe. It has been my intention
all of the time to try and make feach
of the clubs play out all scheduled
"Tall: that I said I would not let Dr,
Parker, manager of the Battle! Axe.
suffer is correct I made that state?
ment just as I have always made state,
tnents to the effect that I would not
let any team suffer. No club; so lout;
as i am president of any league r.monir
the amateurs, is croing to suffer, nor
is nny cluh golhg te> win except by fair
and proper methods. I have said this
all alone, find T say '/ now. I have
never been overruled by the commis?
sion in any decision I have made I
am for amateur baseball, hut 1 bit?
terly resent the imputations against
my character which emanated from a
source at present unknown, but which
I will learn before I am through."
Yesterday the- Southern Bell for?
feited a came to the Collegians. It had
been arranged that the Southern Bell
would meet the Collegians to play off
a postponed u-arne. but the team failed
to show up: therefore, tho forfeiture.
