s MUM [JFootball Racing Big "•Winnipeg, Man., April 3". The Northern league baseball season will open in Winnipeg and St. Boniface next Thursday as scheduled. Yester day the Judges of the court of appeal «ave judgment in the baseball case which has been before them for two days. The injunction has been dis solved and the bond given set aside. The judgment is that the action shall come for trial by Tuesday June 1. Judgment by Chief Howell was as Sollows: "It seems to me the entire case turns upon the contents of exhibit 1 together with the meeting that was held on Dev. 7. 1914. This exhibit 1 may, and probably would be construed In the light of its surroundings and particularly in the light of the trans actions at the meeting when this con stitution was adopted. One man swears that it was not to be limited to year 1914. The minutes seem to indi cate that it was for that year. How the fact will be established in the court it is impossible for me to say. "Apparently the partnership of 1913 I was dissolved, if I read correctly the allegation in the statement of claim and a new partnership apparently was formed for 1914. "I desire particularly to express no .opinion as to the construction that is 'to be put upon the exhibit because evidence at the trial might greatly vary its meaning. "The plaintiff alleges that he has a property right which this partnership has acquired. He claims that he has a property right which that partner chip is now using and he is deprived. ot the benefit of it. He claims also that, he is still a member of that part nership. If he is, then he will be en titled to any profits that are made by the defendants." The injunction in question was ask ed for by A. H. Pulford. and his asso ciates on the ground that the Winni peg Baseball franchise which they held gave them the territorial rights. The Northern league they claimed had transferred their franchise illegally and they asked an injunction to re strain the new franchise owners from playing in Winnipeg. Justice Curran granted a temporary injunction pend ing the trial of the case but agreed to waive it for the time being if the new owners would put up a bond of $20, 000 to guarantee any damages which jnigh be awarded. The Webb people agreed to this, but appealed and to day the court of appeals quashed the injunction and ordered the case"to be tried as though it had never been through the lower court. It is a victory for the league and against Pulford. Taking a Slant at Diamond Dope ,: The jter superior Telegram sporting edi believes F^argo-Moorhead will have &tie of the best hurlinf staffs in the rKorthern league. V Paul Cobb, a brother of the famous Cteoona Peach, was not fast enough to make Doc Sullivan's Fort William Benefit Game on Sunday —All Stars Vs. Snappy Contest Is Assured Small Fee to Be Charged What promises to be a snappy baseball contcst wlh be staged at the Moorhead park next Sunday. It will be in the nature of a beneflt game for the Farpo-Moorhead Baseball association. The business men who are backing the Grainifrowers have assumed heavy financial re sponsibility in getting a good team together. Several of the players havo been secured under option and it cost a lot. of money to get th^m. 1 ne fans can show their appreciation of the efforts to give the dual citics a winning baseball team by turning out next Sunday. Captain Wheeler is getting together a number of the best amateur players of the two cities. Some of the men from Murray s eracK Moorhead organization and other local stars will be lined up against the Graingrowers and will give them a real battle. The batteries of both teams will be from the Graingrowers' staff. Unglaub will have his regular team lined up and will probably work Bell, Dumont and Fait in the box. The admission fee. to any seat in the park will be 25 cents and if the weather is favorable it will probably result In another 2,000 crowd. Real Baseball Yesterday. A nifty practice game was staged at Dacotah field yesterday afternoon between the Graingrowers and Coach Wood's farmers. The collegians prov ed themselves to be real players and gave the leaguers one of the best practice games that they could ask for. Seven innings were played, with the result 5 to 2 in favor of the Far go-Moorhead squad. Rufus Fait, the big speed boy of the regulars, was on the mound for the lirst five Innings. While he didn't ex tend himself, ho had little trouble in keeping the collegians' hits well scat tered and holding them safe at all times. They garnered six hits off his delivery. Ellis took the mound for the last two innings and disposed of the Aggie swatters in good shape, not a hit or a run being made. Gus Smith did the backstop Job in fine shape. Otis opened the deal for the agri cultural college and pitched good ball, lie was succeeded by Wood in the first of the fourth. In the third inning the leaguers got to Otis' delivery for four lilts and four runs. Crawford paired with Otis, while Catlin did the back Btopping for Wood. injunct i v CASE TO BE TRIED JUNE 1 While the Graingrowers did not over-exert themselves," they demon strated to the fans that assembled to witness the session that they are the goods. The infield worked in fine shape and the outfield never looked better. Fremer, the former Virginia and Superior player signed by Ung laub this spring, covered second base in great style and looks like a fixture for the Job. If he continues his late performances at that saqk, Schuler will be little missed. Unglaub received a letter from Schuler last night stating that he had decided to stay in Chicago and will not play league ball this year. Thirwell, Barrett and Doyle graced the outgarden and went through the paces of a winning trio. All are good stickers and clever fielders. Dries was at his old place at third and will prob ably stay there. Glackner filled short in good style. Another game Is scheduled with the Aggies for this afternoon. Just who will grace the mound for the Grain prowrrs is not known but it is likely that some of the youngsters will be given a chance. Either Thorflnson or Bachman will go on for the Aggies. The game will start abou^ 4 o'clock. ion Dissolved in Winnipeg Case That famous outfield quartet which Grand Forks had lined up early In the spring seems to be pretty well shot to pieces. McGraw slipped out of town for parts unknown a few days ago and now the national commission has awarded Block to Dubuque. Block belonged to Winona and was sold to Dubuque but failed to report to the latter place, preferring to stay in the Northern. It Is possible that Grand Forks will purchase his release from dubuque. The Brewers seem to be gathering considerable of the revenge stuff In their present series with the Millers. In mentioning the galaxy of star box artists on the Graingrower staff yesterday The Forum unintentionally over-looked Wahlstrom. There are so many good hurlers on the staff that it is hard to keep tab on them all. but it is a sad mistake to forget Elmer, who. right now, is one Ute first four on the staff. It Is probable that Fnglaub will keep seven pitchers for two or three weeks after the season opens. They will be Bell, Dumont, Fait. Wahlstrom. Hanschu, Ellis and Delburn. Each will have an opportunity to demon strate his ability in a few league games before the colonel finally de cides which to turn loose. Darby O'Brien, the fast second base man, is having trouble selecting a pitching staff. Darby has nine men who all look alike to him, and he wants to keep them all. It's like the small boy with a basket of pups. He can keep one but has to drown three. Darby thinks its awful cruel to have to drown four or five perfectly good pitchers, and the only way he knows how to pick out the victims is to say eeney meeney miney mo—tag, yo're it. Go drown yourself. Listen to this joyful chortle from The Duluth News Tribune: "Listen to us, Nellie, and we will slip you a hot tip! Despite the fact that a few of the recruits who blew In here early In the sea son were certainly hot sketches, tho boobs and bones have been eliminated. The real ball players are now here. Blume has a strong er team right now than he had at the close of the season last year. This is not chatter—It is the firm belief of every fan who has watch i ed them work. The outfit is as strong is as strong as it was last year. Collins at center, Williams at left and Brammell and Ford changing off in right make a great combination. The infield, if Hen ry or Quidding comes in. will be stronger than last year, with Col lins at third, who was handicap ped by playing out of his regular position. The third base problem is solved. The remainder of the infield is the same. Sweelev is go ing like a whirlwind at the back stop. He is pegging wonderfully, hitting like a boxer and running bases with abandon. The pitching department has just as good men now as on rare occasions disgrac ed the Duluth mound last year. Eeell has his counterpart this year in Bryant. Either Jones or Posten looks as good as did Cunningham when he started last spring, and Boley or Hoffman are as good as Withers or Blancke. The last lat ter statement might be amended— Blancke was "some pitcher," and is yet. Blume will miss Blancke this year more than either Cun ningham or Ezell." If the Northern league isn't about 25 per cent stronger and faster than last year, then the pre-seawm riojfcri* twisted all out of shape. [Merkle Breaks His Arm.
