j ,
DEHOIT, Mich., Sept 27.?While attempting~to

sign contracts for next season It Is
said on good' authority the Detroit
* baseball club discovered tat some of
i Its best players refused to sign be>
cause of a new major league that is
s being promoted In the large cities for
t next season.
s Tn the neighborhood of a half dozen
of the stars of the club state, that
i they have received letters from a I
i sport promoter, a resident of Pittsi
burg, advising them to sign no con>
tract for a month or two, as by that
- time the new major league will nave
1 been launched to "Invade the largest
- cities o'f the country.
i The promoters promise that they
I will be able to furnish ample backing
to assure the players, and want to get
i them without any alliances other than
, those of baseball law, which they Bay.
r will not prove any obstacle to their
i proposed plans. Contracts have, howi
ever, been found valid In the courts,
i and UTese are to be studiously avoid?
