IS THIS VICTORY?
If Injunction Ruling Was Such
What Would Defeat Have
Dane to Three-Eye.
BLOOMINGTON VIEW FUNNY
League Handed a Lemon Right and
Will be Asked to Pay $1,200
for the Same.
From some of the cities in the low
er end of the Three-Eye circuit, and
particitlary Bloomington, the place
where twisted baseball stories origi
nate, come some wonderful accounts
of the ruling of. Judge E. C. Graves
in the circuit court here in the Du
buque injunction case. Rock Island
newspaper men are charged with send
ing out biased reports Bloomington
always judges others by the standard
Victory (f for League.
The Bloomington paper sets up the
contention that "the decision of Judge
Graves, while not absolute and final.
is a complete victory for the defend
ants on all questions going to the
merits, for the court held that men
cannot bo enjoined to play ball witn
each other; that the league had a per
fect, right to throw out any .member
that it desired to throw out if it did
so according to the constitution of the
When it is recalled that the only
part of the injunction which was dis
solved applied to the completion of the
schedule of 1007 and the interference
of the other clubs with Dubuque play
ers in playing that schedule, one won
ders just where it was any complete
victory for the league to have that
portion of the injunction dissolved.
Certainly the court takes the posi
tion that any member can be ousted
if this is done according to the con
stitution, but the court, assuming to
be true all of the allegations of the
bill of Dubuque, which were not at
tacked, holds that the move to oust
Dubuque as alleged was in violation
of the constitution, and that Dubuque
therefore is entitled to protection from
the enforcement of that resolution.
Forget Oik- loin(. -
The Bloomington writer, who boasts
that, he was able to get direct from
reliable sources the correct interpre
tation of the decision, says, referring
to the continuation of the injunction
in regard to the ouster order: "On
that point the bill of complaint of Du
buque alleged that the meeting at Pe
oria Aug. 1:5, 1!07, was a mere pre
tended meeting, and that Dubuque had
no notice of the meeting at all, and
did not know of the action nor the
proposed action of the league at that
time, which of course was absolutely
untrue ami known to be untrue by Du
But why neglect to mention the oth
er allegation on which Dubuque con
tends that the resolution was illegal?
The bill of complaint does, allege that
the resolution was adopted "at a pre
tended meeting at Peoria," and claims
that Dubuque had no proper notice of
that meeting. But it also charges that
j according to the Three-Eye league con-
.stitution the franchise of a club shall
vt Him vim., uuiu
, uiu bi-iieuiiiu biiaii nave oeen compie--
oil Thus. Dubuque maintains, the
league could not by any action, take
away that club's franchise until the
close of the season. Dubuque also
says in tne Dill that the action was
taken on the ground that Dubuque had
not the required paid admissions, not
withstanding the fact that the season
was not over, and it could not be
known how many paid admissions the
club would show.
For the sake of the argument, it
might be granted that Dubuque did
know of the Teoria meeting. But
where is the league on the other
l.rnKiir Lawyer a HiinKlerf
Frankly speaking, jthe handling of
the Three-Eye injunction case here by
Attorney Fitz Henry of Bloomington
was a case of bungling. The local at
torneys who represent Dubuque, Searle
& Marshall, drew rings around Fitz
Henry, as the saying is, and then told
him to jump through. And then Fitz
Henry, it is said, has a bill for $1,200
to present to the league for his ser
vices. He, of course, did not bet the
league into the mess. That is Presi
dent Holland's doing, but it was left
by Holland to Fitz Henry to get the
The Rock Island association and
Holland are the only defendants who
have been served, and thus the only
two at bar. Fitz Henry, for Rock Is!
and, filed a demurer. But Rock Isl
and on its own part filed an answer,
thus waiving the demurer.
Then this attorney did not file this
paper in Holland's name, but Instead
he filed a motion to dissolve for want
of equity on the basis of allegations,
though true, did not warrant the writ.
The main part of the writ is continued
i in force by the court. What has Fitz-

accomplished, or at least that Fitz
Henry would have come nearer to get
ting the action he wanted, by another
method, and that the motion to dis
solve was a' mistake.
Th MtiKiitiou Now.
The action of the court is only tem
porary, but it will likely be months
before the final hearing on the injunc
tion, if it should ever be called for
hearing at all. So the league cannot
oust Dubuque on the old resolution for
Suppose the league at the meeting
in recess at present should again adopt
in ouster order, on the ground of fail
ure to show the required attendance.
Dubuque will, in- that case, it is posi
tively stated, at once start new court
proceedings, on the ground that the
interference of Holland is accountable
for the failure to show the gate re
ceipts. And the fact that there were
games scheduled which were not
played on this account would support
the contention It would be sufficient
to make a settlement impossible for
some time. The courts move slowly,
and Dubuque could keep the thing un
settled for months. What is to be
done in the meantime? The league
cannot enforce the ouster, and thus
must recognize Dubuque or President
Holland is in contempt of court. Du
buque has the situation well in hand,
and can break up the league if the ad
ministration insists on forcing the city
to such steps. It is assumed that
President Holland. Bloomington, and
the other cities of the league do not
desire to disrupt the league, and Du
buque does not desire to, certainly.
There does not appear, either, to
have been any good reason for not
doing business at the meeting in Chi
cago this month. Recognition of Du
buque is all that is necessary, and
Dubuque's rights are protected by in
junction. It is not likely that the
league will do anything at all for
months if it waits for the settlement
of the litigation here, for it will be
from two months to a half year before
this case can nossiblv be snttlni
The court will have no time to hear
the matter for weeks, and possibly
months. Here, too, the Bloomington
papers exnioit the "correctness" of
their information. One savs. "It i in-
timated that an answer will be filed
setting up the facts in reearrf tr, ih.-
Peoria meeting in August, 1907. and
when these facts are brought to the
atteution of the court, the court will
be bound, in view of its holdings to
day, to enter its order entirely dis
solving the injunction and dismissing
Dubuque's bill of injunction." This
action will take an indefinite time, for,
as has been stated, it could not Le
heard by the court for some time to
come, and what is to be gained?

Down in staid old Galesburg a repu

day by solemnly asserting that at 7:20
in the morning he had seen a robin in
his back yard. The neighbors were
getting ready to tar and feather him
when a lady came to the rescue wit'' -statement
that the same day she
heard three house flies walking on her
back porch. Popular opinion was thus
divided and the controversy is still
raging. Over in Geneseo the merchants
