Magnates Consider It Impolitic lo
Make Any Farther Declaration
While Matter I* in
PITTSBURG, Feb. 22.-The meeting or
the league baseball officials which was
scheduled for 11 o'clock this morning
probably will not be held until late this
afternoon or tonight, as the delay in
Eastern trains arriving in this city has
prevented Messrs. Roch, Robison and Üb
bitts from arriving in time. JHanlon,
Hart, of the Chicago team, and UoL
Dreyfus, of the local team, are »> the
hotel where the meeting Is to be held,
but they are not talking for publication.
The baseball officials finally got their
conference under way at the Hotel Shen
ley shortly before 2 o'clock this after
noon. They locked the doors and thus
insured full privacy. One of them was
still absent, A. J. Roch, of Philadelphia,
who did not show up, nor was any word
received from him.
Col. J. I. Rogers, of Philadelphia, and
Ebbitts, of Brooklyn, arrived late, und
immediately went upstairs to one of the
parlors for the conference.
Those present were Ed Hanlen, of
Brooklyn; President J. A. Hart, of Chi
cago; Messrs. Rogers and Ebbitts, Har
ry Pulliam and Col. Dreyfus. They pre
served an impenetrable secrecy until the^r
entry into the conference.
At the conclusion of the meeting to
night the following statement was given
to the Associated Pres3:
"A conference was held between repre
sentatives of the Pittsburg Athletic
company, Chicago League Ball club,
Brooklyn Ball club and Philadelphia Kail
club, limited, members of the National
league and American Association of pro
fessional "Baseball clubs.
"A letter dated Point Loma, Cal., Feb.
14, J9o2 r from Mr. A. G. Spalding, was
received, tendering his resignation of the
presidency of the said league, if in the
judgment of the four clubs it should
be deemed wise to accept it. After a
full interchange of views, it was unani
Resolved, That we disapprove of such
resignation and respectfully return it
to Mt. Spalding. That his nomination
and ejection to such presidency was in
support of the principle, which principle
is the eradication from league councils
of the unfair, unjust and unsportsman
like methods which have so marred its
actions in the past. In other words, the
elimination of what is known as "Brush
ism" and "Freedmanisrn," without any
antagonism to the personalities of Messra.
Brush and Freedman, who were and ar©
the authors and exponents of said
Resolved, That we know of no reason
why we should abandon that policy, and
we believe that Mr. A. G. Spalding is
the ideal and practical leader to enforce
Resolved, That Inasmuch as the ques
tion as to the validity of his election to
the office of said presidency is now pend
ing in the supreme court of the city of
New York, and as arguments by counsel
pro and con on that subject will" be made
during the first week of next month,
that it would be unwise and Impolitic
for us to make any further declaration
at present, other than that we will abide
by the decision of that court and will
join in the convening of a meeting of the
eight clubs of the National league either
in recognition of Mr. A. G. Spalding as
thereof, or, in the event of an
adverse decision of the court for the
purpose of filling the vacancy thus de
clared to exist in that office, in accord
ance with the constitution of the said
league, and with the rules of parlia
mentary law. v
