Chicago, Feb. 12. Prospects of
drawing up a new working agreement
between the major, and the minor
leagues, at outs for a year, brighten
ed today following a double session
between a committee from the minors
and one from the National League.
The American League was repre
sented at the meet.ng but did not
have an official committee present be
cause most of the club owners had
left the city.
No definite action was taken but it
was announced that the meeting
made satisfactory progress.
The American League will not en
ter' into any written agreement with
the minors until after the disposal of
the Baltimore Federal League suit, it
was said at the forenoon sess.on by
Connie Mack, pres:dent of the Phil
adelphia club. It was said that this
suit, which is stopping any legal
agreement between the majors and
the minors, charges that iue oia
agreement between the two bodies
was proof that organized baseball
was a trust, and thay base their de
mand for an injunct.yit on uai Pji.k.
The sense of opinion at the lifter
noon gathering was that the draft
should be restored. Several of the
members on ' the minor league committee-
declared, however, that there
must be certain reservations made.
The minor league body also declared
itself in favor of appointing an arbi
tration board consisting of two mem-
bers from the- majors and minors. In
case this board could not agree on
a . point under discussion it was de- I
clared that a third party outside of
baseball should be named to decide.
The optional agreement also was
discussed but - everything was put
over until tomorrow: i
Albert Tearney was informed bv
August Herrmann, who presided, that
the maor leagues were not in the po
sition to take, omcial action, and it
was decided to appoint a committee
from the-. National and the Ameri
can League to go into session in the
afternoon, with a committee from the
minors. The National Leaeue an-
pointed John -Heydier,- pres.dent. of
the league; Charles Ebbets, . Brook
lyn; Barney Dreyfus, Pittsburgh, and
August Herrmann of Cincinnati. The
minor league committee was com
posed of; a representative of each of
me leagues- -
It was declared tonight that what
ever -.action is i taken tomorrow when
it is hoped that Mr. Johnson will ba
able: to be present, will be in the na
ture of a temporary agreement which
will .hold until , after the Baltimore
case . is cleared. . . .

It closes with this paragraph: -"A
decent regard for the assembry
as the popular representative house of
the state requires that these five as
semblymen be excluded fronvtheir
seats. They have taken a false oath
to secure seats which they cannot oc
cupy as gentlemen, patriots, loyal citi
zens or assemblymen. They come un
der the falsa pretenses of -being loyal
to their government when in fact they
are really citizens of .' the Interna
