Cincinnati, July 25. A statement la-1

firaw. manager of the New York Na- ;
tior.al league team, to the effect tc.ot i
Pittsburg would not obtain the ser-;
vices of Pitcher ?ilarty O'Toole of at j
Paul without a fight was backed tip;
yesterday afternoon by a eertifiel ,
.check from the New York club for $15,-!
. ooo made out to the secretary of the.
national baseball commission.
Accompanying the check was a let-'
ter from President John T. Brush ti
the New- York club explaining that
President Lennon of the St. Paul el io j
had entered into a verbal agreemecj
with New York for the sale of O'Tool.?
. for J15.000 and that he desired to larj
claim to the player. j
O'Toole was sold to the Plttsbui'
club Saturday for $22,500, but up !

Rock Island fans will undoubtedly
! be Interested in the following from
the Peoria Herald-Transcript:
towns ere rldlcui'Eg the idea of the
i Decatur eprlr.g2f id club president
that his absence from the circuit
would cause the league to close .the
"Either thiB was Klnsella's idea,
or else he wag making a grandstand
play a four-flushing attempt at no
toriety and in either case, his stand
in. such as it was, with Three-Eye
officials is broken and far spent. In
case he carries out his threat, in
which action there 1b much doubt,
it will not cause the league any trou
ble nor any worry, and will have no 1
Influence toward disruption. For
the Bloomington fans are after a
team, and if Kinsella acts as he has
spoken, they will have the remnants
of the Springfield team thrust upon
them. Decatur is a good town, and
would have supported clean, well
managed ball, but they, too, called
Kinsella with the result of the dis
couragement, financial ruin, attempt
to break up the league."
