the Grounds for Suit.
Hampton, Va., April [22.?A suit for
$2,000 damages was filed *in the circuit
clerk's oflice here this afternoon by At?
torney Francis F. Causey, representing
Frank Darlington, general manager of
the Newport News, ^Hampton and Old
Point Railroad Company, and James Mc
Meuamin, "proprietor of the "extensive
crab canning factory of this place, against
W. B. Bradley, manneer of the Richmond
baseball club, and A. O'Nlel, manager
of the Norfolk naseball club.
Messrs. Darlington and McMenamin
set forth in their declaration Jthat during
the latter part of the baseball season of
1890 the.t were induced by Messrs. Brad?
ley and O'Neil to furnish the funds nec
Ssary to prevent the collapse of the Pe?
tersburg team, which, with the Norfolk,
Richmond, Portsmouth, Roanoke and
Lynchburg clubs, were members of the
Virainia State League.
Bradley and O'Neil represGntcu, it is
alleged, that no loss would result by ii.'!V"
sou of the arrangements on account of
the lateness of the season, as tho Peters
bars team would retain its membership
in the State League during 1897, when
the investment would return a handsome
The complainants allege, however, that
before the close of tho season of 1890
Messrs. Bradley and O'Neil caused the
withdrawal of the Petersburg club from
the State League, and with other clubs,
made it a member of the Atlantic League,
thus entailing upon them a direct loss of
$1,000 and incidental losses footing up
$),Q00 more. As the parties to the con?
troversy are all of the highest standing
the hearing of the ease to take place in
the circuit court of this county at its next

Flnley, vice-president of ^the Southern
railway, as chairman, was appointed to
formicate rules to meet the situation. It
