wis eiiiect.l to formally announce tb
Mnke" against th League magnates; and
it did the work in great shape, leaving tin
League th hag to hold but mighty few ex
pert lull manipulators therein.
War flayer, on Hand.
Amoni the crack players present were
O'Rnurk., H anion, Irwin, D. Brouthers, the
grent Pi'elTer, and th. greatest K-IIy, every
League club being represented. They con
stituted when met in solemn conclave the
oouncil of th. Brotherhood, and were tba
observed or all observers. The ania I boy
who now thinks that to bo a mighty pitcher
is bitter than to b president of the Uuited
Slates f mated bis eye on th manly
forms of th fraternity of willow
wiel.lers when b got a chance and
Gotham felt that tbe eyes of th. nation
. wer upon her on this eventful day. A sec
ond declaration of independence, was to be
prepared and hurled defiantly in th. teeth
of those tyrant oppressors, th League
monopolists. Th meeting of th council
was called to order at noon, and continued
in session until 7 p. m., the business trans
acted b-ing the preparation of an addrese to
leelaration of Independence.
The di cumen t define the position of the
Brotherhood toward tbe National League
an I ia as follows :
"At Inst the Brotherhood of baseball play
ers feels at liberty to make known its inten
tions ami defend itself against the osper
a.ons of misrepresentations which for weeks
It baa twen forced to suffer in silence. It ia
a 1 longer a secret that tbe players of th.
League have determined to play next season
under d liferent management; but for reasons
which will, w. think, be understool, it was
deemed advisable to make no announce
ment of this intention until tb close of tb
present season; but now that th struggle
f ir the various a?unants are over, and the
t Tim of our contracts expired, there is no
loiig-r reason for boldiog it back.
Th. LaaajM. Arraign.!.
"In takiug this step we feel that we owe it
to th. pulilic and to ourselves to explain
briefly aom of the reasons by which w. havs
bsn moved. There was a time when tbe
League stood far integrity and fair dealing.
To-day it sian la for dollars and cents. One
It looked to th elevation of tbe game and an
b inest exhibition of the sport To-day its
eve are npon tbe turustila. Men bava com
Into tb Uums for no oth.r motive than to
xplolt it for evttry dollar in sight. Measure
originally intended for tbe good of the game
h iv. been pi verted into instruments for
That Odlooa Reserve Rule.
"The reserve role and the provisions of th)
national agream mt gav. the msnagers un
I miled powr, and they ha v. not bes la ted
to use this iu the ni .t arbitrary and merce
nary way. flayers have been bought, sold
a id ex hang-Hi a though they were sliaep
Instead of Am Tlcan citit-ns. Reservation'
became for them another name for property
right in tb player; by acombinatiou suiuiik
tli.uiae.lvea, stronger than the strongest
'ti ust,' tbey were aula tu enforce tbe most
arbitrary rosnsur.-s, and tb. player bad
e tfaer to sul.uiit or get oat of the profession
in wlin h b. had spent years in attaining
prufU'ti ncv. Even tn. diabandment and re
tirement of a club did not free tbe players
from the octiipus cluti'h, for thy were then
peddled around to the bi,-h-st bi 1 ler. That
the plurers somatimea prnflteil by tbe sale
das uotuing to do with th. case, but only
proves thu injustice of hta previous re
strant. I'navalllna e(otlatlon.
"Two years ac.o we met the League aod
attempted to remedy some of these evils,
but through what has been politely called
'League diplomacy" we completely lail-d.
Uuwilling to lonver submit to sucb treat
ment, we made a strong effort last spring to
raaicb an understanding with tbe League.
To our application for a bearing they re
plied that tbe matter was not of sufficient
importanoe to warrant a meeting, and sug
gsted that it be put off until fall. Our
committee replied tiiat tb players felt that
tb League bad broken faith with them;
that while tbs rwulta might be of littles im
portance to tb managers, they were of
grat importance to the players; that, if the
L-ague w, u!d not conoede what waa fair
w. would adopt other means to proteit our
selves; that if postponed until fail w. would
b separated anJ at tu mercy of the
League; and that, a the only course left us
required time and labor to develop, we
must tberelore insist upon an immediate
Revolt th Only Remedy.
"Then, upon tbelr final refusal to meet us,
we tetran organizing for ournalvea, and now
are in shape to go ahead next year under new
management and new auspicaa. W. believe
that it t. posalbls to randast mir national
gmiie upon line which will not infringe upon
individual and natural righto. W aaK to tie
juj ed solely by our work, and, believing
that the game can lai played more fairly, and
its business conducted mora intelligently na
dir a plan which exclude everything arbi
trary end un-American, we look forward
with confidence to the support of tbe public
and tn. future of the national game.

Conghlin O'Bntllvau'a Rawkleas Re
mark to th Widow Farrar Tracing
th Wagon and Its Ghastly Load
Mnrdera Most Foal, and Oth.r Trans
gressions. Chicago, Nov. 6. Tbe witness in the
Cronin trial who was so hard to locate last
week Edward Spellman, of Peoria was
present in court yesterday morning when
tbe trial waa resumed and took the stand
immediately. He was a disappointing wit
ness to the state, which proposed through
bis testimony to g't a further twist on
Conghlin and also to implicate Beggs. Hs
said be was a member of the Clan-na-Gael
or United Brotherhood as he insisted on
calling it was district otfl ;-r and had re
ceived certain letters from Beggs. He aaid
the executive of th order waa a body to
itself and gave tli names of Mortimer Scan
Ian, Lawrence Buckley and Rouayne, of
New York, aa three of tbe members.
Th Becgi Correspondence.
Tb state pro laced several letters and
proceeded to identify tbem when Attorney
Foster said It was unnecessary, as Beggs ad
mitted their authenticity. Tbe letter from
Beggs referred to tbe production of the re
port of the trial committee in advance of its
official publication in a certain camp, and
tbe blowing of en her of disunion by certain
members (ooe beini; admittedly Cronin) and
wanted to know if Kpellman couldn't stop
it. There was nothing threatening in the
letters, except the declaration that peace
must be had in tbe order and by-gones al
lowed to be Ly-goues if it r quired war to
reach tbat result Spellman'a answers were
simply a declaration that without charges
being preferred be could do nothing.
Correcting Former Testimony.
In speaking of tbe matter referred to in
Regis's letters, Spellman said tbat b met
Ileggs later, and the tatter told him tbat the
matter had been amicably settled. Tht waa
after Cron ill's disappearance. The state's
ettorney asked witueas whether be did not
testify before the grand Jury tbat Beggs
words were "attended to." He replied tbat
be did not think he did; but at any rate be
was satisfied tbat the worda amicably set.
tied" were those used by Beggs.
Anoth.r of Conghlln's Remarks.
i itnesa, in answer to questions, slid that
Dan Cougblin and a man named Kunte (he
could not recognise the prisoner as the man)
called on him at Peoria, either in December,
January or Februry laat; did not know
whether tbey talked of Cronin there, but
thought not The state's attorney then
wanted to know whether Spellman had not
under oath, before tbe grand jury, said tbat
be did bave a conversation with Con; hi in at
Peoria in which tbe Utter aaid Cronin ought
to be killed. Witness replied tbat be testified
tefure tlie grand jury tbat Cougblin bad
applied to Cronin a very opprobrious epi
thet, not that ha said he ought to be killed.
Upon thinking the matter over he concluded
he might bave done Cougblin an injustice.
He had immediately consulted friend who
beard tb conversation and tbey tol 1 bim he
was mistaken that Cough lin did not say so.
Witness bad taken a goo 1 deal of trouble to
inform tbe state's attorney ot this mistake
aod that be would not testify to those words
at the trial. Witness' memory waa rather
treacherous aa to ta miners the state's at
torney pressed bim about, but tbe featureof
his testimony wus that relative to Cougblin.
O'sulllvan Cornea In Again.
John A. Jlaliou-.y swore that Iceman O'Sul
livan some time before tba murder, while at
a clan meeting, asked him what sort of a
physician Cronin was. Kceivlng a favora
ble reply, O'Sull van asked to be introduced,
and then made tba famous contract for tb
doctor to treat bis employes when anything
happened to tbem.
Annie Farrar, a widow and a former
patron of O'SuIlivan, testified tbat O'Sulli
van called at her house iu May to see about
taking ice. Ti e widow spoke to tbe iceman
about the findm; of Cronin1 body, and
said : "It is eometbing fearful to decoy a
man away and murder bim lik that" To
this O'Sullivan replied: Tbey say be is a
Briiish spy and has given away toe secrete
of a certain order, and if be did tbat he
