The announcement published exclusively in

Buffalo Club was hold at noon yesterday,
when President Cushman roslgucd and Deacon

Tho UufTalo baseball peoplo aro rejoiced.
Kut only the return ot two members ot their
old "big four" pleases them, but the virtual
grip upon the pennant, which tbo deal lu
sines, Is a matter for Bolf-cungratulatlon.
On sober second thought It will ho seen that
this niovo ot Wblto and Kowo must brlug
serious consequences If thoy attempt to play
with tho Buffalo Club. In sucB a case- all tho
other members of tho International Associa
tion will bo forbidden to play any games with
tho Bisons. Of what valuo will the Buffalo
Club then bo?
While this prohibition rofcrs to blacklisted
players, thero is nothing in tho National
Bgreemoht affecting tho right of a club to be
come tbo property of blacklisted players.
