This conclusion is in lin" with what every fed eral judge has said who ha- passed on the release ciarse of the old contracts. It >>e?.'ins to look, therefore, as If the organized clubs must make over ?ill their contracta outstanding before this sea-.,,,! at.'! give tbe players exactly the samo latitude in seeking release as the owners alone have hereto? fore exercised. That ?- a reasonable view <?f the mutual obligations of such agreements it was not a view conducive to the discipline which organized baseball sought t<> enforce. The power "f tbe owners will be greatly narrowed it this ?ii?? prevails, and the liberty <>f the players will be greatly enlarged. The ?.'?une will have to adjuat Itself to these new conditions, and it ma* suffer In doing so.

" The out"f-to??.ners presumed to criticise locni police etiquette in that respect and were there upon arraated, After being locked up fur a time they were tried for restating police authority and one of them was lined JO in irks.

ABOUT CRI.ME AND LIQUOR The Fashion to Blame the Former on the Latter, It I? Said. To the Editor of The Tribune.
