CLEYELAND GUILTY American League Baseball Club Violated the National Agreement. SEVEN PLAYERS INVOLVED Lnjole's Club, In Securing Them, Gove Receipts That Wore Irregular. ' 1 Cincinnati, O., Aug. 17. The course pursued by the Cleveland American league club In transactions Involving seven players, Is irregular and In vio lation of the national agreement, ac cording to a decision handed down by the National Baseball commission to-dny, ami the players will he sub ject to purchase or draft In the future by any club. The decision pays: "During the past season, the Cleve land club lllrd agreement with the commission that appeared to be In proper form, nnd were approved by the commission, ns follows, all of them being sales of certain players belonging to said club with options to recall: "With Akron, for players, William Hllle, William Speas, and Dick Itreen: with Nashville, for players, Jacob pnubort, nnd H. E. Flay; with Colum bus for if to Hess, With Toledo for Charles I'rultt; with Portland, for plnycr (. Orsney. "These Agreements with the rxcep tlon of player Hpens stated with respect to the consideration, 'the receipt nf which Is hereby acknowledged,' mean ing tlint the respective minor league clubs had paid the consideration nam ed In the agreements. Last week the .Cleveland club notified the commission tendered In payment thereof certain notes that they had recelx-ed from the various minor leagns cluha Involved xvhen the players were sold to them. All of these notes were promissory ones, becoming due between the 15th and 2ith of August of this year. None of them bears Interest, and the tlma of each was dtrmlned by the time flint the agreement for the particular player was entered into. The notes were not placed In bank for collection, but xvere pimply cancelled by the Clex-eland club and the commission Is requested to return them to the re spectlx'e clubs Interested. "The course pursued by the Cleve land club In these various transactions la Irregular and cannot be approved by the commission and for that reason all of the agreements abox'e referred to are now set aside and the players In volved will be subject to purchase or draft In the future by any club, in accordance xvlth the rules of the na tional commission. There can be no question but that the agreements re ferred are a violation' of the national agreement and In all caeen the Cleve land club Is guilty of farming. "The Cleveland club Is hereby called upon for an explanation to show cause why penalty should not be inflicted against them for their action as well as all of the minor league clubs In volved."1 The commission refused the applica tion for a re-hearlng of the claim of Wllllamsport club of the Til-State league against the St. Louis Nathnal club, relative to Players Charles, Dele hanty and Bailee. Some time ago the commission re jected the claim of the Wllllamsport club for these players.

The entire cast and synopsis have already been given, there being twenty-two big parts and four acts In the last of which there are two scenes. The piece Is by far the finest thing put on by the stock this season which Is saying much. The character of Emmet from which the play takes Its name taken by Wllford Lueat who Is engaged special ly for this production, and ho won his tBimcnce completely from the very start. His speech in defense of hlm jself In the last act was splendidly giv en, and called forth prolonged applause. I Miss Claudia Lucas played him an able support, and a Sarah Curren, the woman who loves Emmet, la seen to even better advantage than usual and that Is saying a great deal for she Is one of the favorites In the present stock company.
