'The leading New York case on th?
point is the Metropolitan Exhibition Com?
pany, at one time operating the New
York bau club, against Jul.r. M. "Ward,
the pre_?nt business manager of the
Brooklyn Federal I_eague club and a suc?
cessful New York attorney.
"Th- rk ball dub attempted by
;? pre-:. non to restrain Ward

hood teams dUTtet the war of MM. The
?eserve Clause Of Sard's contract was
stronger than the one of to-day, as it
provided that tl.e salary for the succeed?
ing year ?should not b? les? than $3.0"0,
while the present one provide? no mini?
mum whatsoever, leaving the matter en?
tirely with the owners.
"The court, however, refused to grant
the Injunction for the reason, among
other?, that the terms were too indefi?
nite. It ?aid 'That a court of equity will
not make a contract which the psrtles
?Ubeonalves liav?? not made and that it
will not enforce an Indefinite one are ele?
mentary proposition? that need no cita?
tion of aatbertttee to support them '
"In the case of the Philadelphia ball club
against I.ajoie. ;t Pennsylvania case
which is looked upon as upholding the
?eserve clause, the <ontract provided
?hat the ?alary under the renewals Should

objection of want of deflnitenesH.
It ali-o ptovided that it could be re?

Simmons bad a twist on the ball that
bothered the opposing batsmen. They
picked off eleven hits, but he had the
knack of putting on the screw-, in time.' of
danger, and, with the exception of the
ninth Inning, allowed no more than on?
j run at a time. His fielders aided to no
I small decree, and an error by the brilliant. ,
' Hcmans alone marred the card. Wileox
and his big stick were prominent in the
victory, too. and drove home several runs.

doubt Falling on the slants of R?e, they
hammered out nine runs in the hrst five '

j eighth and ninth frames they put to- I
i gether five more. Holt, who pitched for j
