HEWS OF THE S NATIONAL LEAGUE NOT A PARTY TO PEACE PLAN President Tener Surprised at Remarks of Ban Johnson on Agreement to Withdraw Baseball Suits From the Illinois Courts New York. May 5. —President John X. Tener, of the National League, when informed of Ban Johnson's statement Relative to withdrawing the baseball suits from the Illinois courts, saiil tha: he did not understand the American league executive's remarks. President Tenor stated that so far as he knew there was no intention at this time on the part of organized baseball iu gen et al and the National League in par titular ta withdraw the ease now be icj re Judge Landis. Other officials of the National League «*1 essed the opinion that President Johnson did not intend to convey the idea that the suit had been or was nbout to be withdrawn from court. His .remarks, thev thought, were merelv an res-ion of personal opinion in the Hjatter of the controversy between or- 1 gaHized baseball aud the Federal ■League. While they appeared to be more or i less mystified by President Johnson'si utatements. it was apparent' that the National League authorities did not «ire to take any definite attitude in the latest development of the baseball controversy. Robert B Ward, president of the Brookfeds and vice president of the Federal League, said that he knew of lio plans or arrangements between or nizel baseball and the independent league that warranted such a statement as credited to Johnson. He said: £ "So far a- I am concerned personal* ■h- an I as a representative of the Fed ora! League I am not ready to have !the Illinois s.r.ts withdrawn from the ■court. I don't understand the situa •fion. but you can state for me that the ■Federal League is not ready t;i depart from the stand it took when the case *\ias pleaded before Judge Landis. there can be no withdrawal of the Controversy from court without the *cnsent or all parties concerned, and 1 am confident that no officer of the DR.kLIIGH, Specialist Pfcystclaa and «orceo« Ofiffi: SOU Walnut «»_ Hnrrlshnrz.
