MORE TROUBLE TWILIGHT LEAGUE GOTCH IS CONFIDENT OF WINNING Winnipeg and, Brandon Forfeit Their Franchises Ignominiously Quit the League of a Thousand Troubles and Try to Fasten the Blame on President Eckstorm -Both Clubs Delinquent Use Salary Question as an Excuse for Throwing Up the Sponge A despatch emanating from Winnipeg, boars the intelligence of Win- nipeg and Brandon dropping out of the Western Camida League. There Is just about two weeks more ball to play In the league, but both tliese teams are suffering from financial embarassment, 30 that to quit noiv would save the clubs from furUier loss. Taelr demise they claim will not Interfere with the other clubs as they play tho balance of their games together. The two eastern clubs are deep iu-tbo hole financially. Thus this action. It is a pity, however, that they couldn't give un the ghost grace- fully without trying to Fasten the blame of their action on tlie president of the league. He is accused of all manner ot negligence, but whether this be true or not tho fact remains that, they are both quitting because of their own failure to malte both ends meet. Winnipeg has been a de- linquent club all through the season. Before they criticize the president they'should take the mote out of their own eye. Had they done this there would never have bwi any differences with the president, in ail prob- ability. Tha gush that is emanating from Winnipeg in regard to the situation of'affairs in the Western Canada League should be talien with a grain o! salt. Winnipeg always was a frost as a baseball town and will continue to he so, as long as the same clique of rummies are attempting to run affairs, who have been in power for the nast number of years. In conversation with the Herald at noon today President' Eckstorm stated that he bad received official notice from both Brandon and Win- nipeg about their retirement from the League. Brandon had nothing to but Winnipeg accompanied their notice.-with an excuse for their ac- tion, viz., Hint as there were no affidavits forthcoming from the Presi- dent of thc League regarding tho salary limit of the various clubs they decided to disband. As a matter of fact the president has been unable to procure affi- davits from all the clubs. Early in the season, Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon furnished the president, with affidavits as to Mieir salary list, but r.o cithers. After the Brandon meeting. June 29. affidavits were again called for by the president. The call, however, received no response at all. Winnipeg has not given tlie league any guarantee '.hat they were within tho salary limit and here they are making a great roar be- cause they fall to see any of the'other chibs submitting their salary lists, nnd then they have the gall to uae it as un excuse lo quit the league. They seek to have tbe president shoulder the blame 1'or the bust-up. President Eckstorm wired Secretary Farrell, of the National Associa- tion, acquainting him with the action of Brandon and Winnipeg oltllis, stating the desire of the Western Canada League to hold their ter- ritory. They both forfeit their franchises which will be at the disposal of he league. -This is nol the on which the two clubs forfeit their standing and franchises: Sec, 9, Article 7, of the league constitution, reads: "Tlie membership of any club may be terminated for failure or to fulfil its contractual obligations or payments of league dues, vhen such have become due." Brandon and Winnipeg have both fallen delinquent in.the matter of assessments. Winnipeg owes the league ?IS ind Brandon something in tlie neighborhood of S240. Drafts made upon .hem for the amount are returned not honored. The essence of diplomacy could never make a league a success with such pikers as Brandon and Winnipeg in it.
