It is just ten years since the Phillies
first became tainted with synd'icate
ball It was in 1PP; that the American
League, had Its old rival, the National. |
on its hip. In the hour of triumph!
Ban Johnson and his associates had no!
desire to crush th? ir rival. There were
certain men in the National League
that they deaSred to drive into retire?
ment, but they warned to see two
eight-club leagues in the big cities, j
The flag of truce had been waved and
ttrras of peace had been proposed and
accepted. B? fore the papers could be
signed it w.is found that the Phillies
were in a bad plight financially. Harry
Pulliam. who had graduated frem the
secretaryship of fh< Pittsburgh, club
into the presidency of the National
League, went to work to secure pur?
chasers for the club. Pull'am got
Jarms Potter to start negotiations for
tbe club. The latter secured an op?
tion on the Phillies.
Several subscriber-., all of whom were
members of the Racquet Club of thi*
city, were obtained. Despite this. It
looked as if the deal could not he
put through Then l'ulllam called to
his nid his termer employer, Prestdi n;
??racy Dreyfnss of P^tsburgh. Drey
fuss came here and worked nicht and
day with the local promoters. Twenty
four hours before tme was :ip on the
option it looked as if the Potter syn?
dicate would fail Then It was that
Pulliam and Dreyfuaa appealed t*
Garry Hermann, of Cincinnati, to come
tn the rescue. I.ate that night Mr

SAFETY PUY IS
National Billiard Association
Rules Committee Reaches That i
Conclusion at Meeting.
N< w Tark. January ft?Safety play is'
to be retainci as permissible in bil?
liards and not to be penalized in the
rules about to be astahllshod hp the
National Association of Amateur Bil
llat.i ['layers, according to a decision
reached by the rules committee and an?
nounced to-duy. it was learned Baal
a number of prominent amateur play?
ers had realste red their opposition to
the proposed rule on the ground that
it would take from billiards what,
amounted to its only defensive cle- j
Although it is believed by the com-,
nilttce that the new rule was misin-,
tc I peeled. Its elimination has been dc-j
t ided upon. The idea was to do away|
with the deliberate wrecking of a b?- i
liard match by a player who was un-,
able to get his stroke and who would,
not allow his opponent to make any-j
thing out of his turns at table. Play ;
lasting for live hours or more lias often
resulted from such exhibitions.
The meeting of the national asso?
ciation to be held here January Z(>, will
have other new- rules to consider, but
it is expected to take no further action
on the oltauatton of safety play.
