The opening dates were changed so that the seasons of both the National league and the Players' league will open on the same day, April 19 This action of the Brother- hood in selecting the same opening day as the National league makes the fight more aggressive than ever and effectually silences the National league people, who were confi- dent that the Brotherhood was afraid to clash with them in their dates The ques- tion of taking back deserters from the Brotherhood was settled without much ar- gument It was decided that Beckley, Mul- vey and Delehanty be reinstated under a resolution requiring a unanimous vote of the board of directors for such a purpooe Tn the case of John T Pickert, the short- stop of the Philadelphia Players' club, whose services are claimed by the Tfannas City club of the A merican association nnder the rcoorve clause, it was decided to allow Mr Pickert to stay with the Brotherhood Affidavits from that player were produced to show that he had returned the advance money (1300) given him by the Kansas City club and obtained a receipt for it The action of the Cleveland convention in allowing to each club 2 per cent of all the tickets issued as complimentaries was reversed and the figure increased to 8 per cent During the season each club will be known by a flag as well as by a uniform club will be provided with eight flags, and on the daj of a game its owu nng fly from the flagstaff with thnt of the visiting team.
