"You're said Umpire Lindsay to the Aberdeen attorney, and then it was all over but the shouting. Of course, Judge Lindsay didn't use exactly those words, but'-that was the decision on the play. Aberdeen was asking for an injunction to restrain the league from making up its sched- ule for 1910 without Including the Black Cats in the circuit, and Judge Lindsay denied the application. How .ever, it was only after a hard dia- mond contest, in -the course of which both of the legal twirlers .put over some speedy ones. Miller held Ab- erdeen hitless throughout the scrap, while the league pounded Brunner for two home runs, winning by a good margin. In denying the application for an Injunction, the commissioner held that the league had a right to drop a 'club under the constitution. He 'heid further that in accepting the for- feit money back from the league, Manager Roowland had acquiesced in the action that resulted in dropping the Gray's Harbor town. Aberdeen still has another Inning to play. On February 18th a hear- ing will be held on the 'alternative writ of1 mandate Issued last Friday Judge Frater.

He has not yet heard anything defin- ite from last years' players, but thinks he can get the best-of them back witboout much trouble; In facf, he believes they will 'all be anxious to get a berth with the Lethbridge team of 1910. "Chesty" claims to have on his string a slab artist that will make the fans forget all about the famous Phil Lezie.
