FOGEL EXPELLED
FROM NAT, LEAGUE
Former President of Philadelphia
Olub Excluded from Councils
of Baseball Magnates.

tegrity of Officials and
Umpires.
Nrw York. Xov. :'7.- Hornee s. Fogel,
fotmcr prrsldoiil of the Philadelphia
National League Uaseball club. Is for-
ivir excluded from participation In t'ho
councils of 1 ho National Liagtie. This
was Hie decision ot tlie magnates of
the league after hours' consldi ra
tion to-day of tho charges that Fogel
had made statements reflecting on tln
Integrity of the National League. Of thn
seven charges, the club owners found
the former Philadelphia club president
guilty oti five, and dismissed tlie other
two as relating to privileged communi
cations. Mr. Fogel had no sooner read tlie deci
sion than he countered It with u dellant
statement. Uefore the meeting.-: began
hr had expected such a decision, lie de
olaied. "The Jury was packed against
us." he assorted and lie practically told
the magnates who had expelled him from
their eo'ineils that he would pay no attcn
lon to their findings.
'J will sell or represent as I please
the Philadelphia club in the .National
League as long as 1 fee Inclined to do so."
ac iteilnreil, "and no one can distill b me
from ilulng so."
Sir. Fogel said that his attorney. Sit.
Shields, had suggested to him after hours
f discussion that lie withdraw and re--01
1 to the courts on "the grounds that
here was 11 baseball political consniraey
igainst me t get some one else."
"I thought." said Fogel, "that I owed
!t to my baseball reputation which I
onslder sixitlesu tti fight tlie ease to the
Inlsli. 1 procured witnesses on each
bulge to refute ovenvlielmlngly tho
e-tlmony of tlie opposition. .Mr. Shields
till contended that it wa a waste of
1 1 - and that we might as well resort!
to the inevitable. I still contended that
we should meet the isue because I had
-tiggested at the start that' an open
meeting be bold."
"The entire affair is national politics.
Fortunately my constitutional rights are
safeguarded in common law and the re
sult of the verdict of the packed Jury
against me does not affect my property
tights In the future. I would simply add
that the people of America know my
leputatlnn as a builder up and fosterer of
oaseball and I will stake my reputation
lor fairness and sportsmanship against
that of any man who voted against me
on live of the seven charges nnd who
ruled the other two charges for political
purposes."
President Wiler of the Philadelphia Na
tional League club refused to vote on the
hargea against ids predecessor on the
ground that the leagiiu lacked Jurisdic
tion In tlie case. Mr. Wilder said:
"1 decline', to vote, as I stated before,
on tlie ground of jurisdiction. I want to
state, however, that while I declined to
vote on that ground, 1 endorse all that
was. said on the subject because 1 think
Hint baseball with the largo amount of
capital l.ivcstcd ought to be run on the
highest principles of honor and Integrity."
Ail of the clubs In tho league were
represented to-day and all voted to sus
tain thi live charges against Fogel except
tlv Philadelphia club.. Xo testimony was
taken at the resumption of the hearing
tills morning and the league representa
tives went into executive session Imme
diately. At no time, it was said, was the
verdict in doubt but tlie magnates de
bated at considerable length tile form in
which the resolutions should lie drawn.
There was discussion also concerning
tlie povvirs of the league as to the
pilvlleges and duties of Us own members.
As 1 1 1 1 : 1 1 1 given out in tin- resolutions tho
league magnates deildiil tliat they had
unlimited powers to sav who should not
repiesent 1111) club forming the league
hut that they did not presume to say to
any dub who should represent it in tho
national councils.
The charges on which Fogel was
found guilty were In brief that he had
acciisid the St. Louis club of placing Its
weykest team niMluM Xevv Yoik; that
lie had verbally attacked the Integrity
of tlie National League race of IMS and
Intimated (hat the race was "crooked"
at the same tini" charging that National
League umpires had given all cloo de
cisions to thn t Hants tliat In an article
In the Chicago levelling Post under date
of September -s Fogel lind made ac
cusations against President Lnch and
charged Ills umpires with collusion, tliat

sent to the other seven National League
1 lub ownets, lie had declared the leagtie
raci of t'.il- was not honest and that
Preshh nt Lynch and his umpires were
incompetent, and tliat Fogel had made
cnnl and written charges inflecting
upon a specified Xatlonal League um

had not lead tlie entire statement before

the Chicago magnate refused to discuss
this phase of the case, and tlie other mag
nates, who iiad voted to exclude Mr. Fo
gel from fin tiler councils of the league,

and also declined to make statement.-'.
