the latter body tonight denied, the request
of Class C and D lsig-.ipij"Trir' an amend
rrient ot the rule concerning the purchaso
of minor league players,
une attention of the commission was
called to the case by J. H. Farrell, secre
tary of the National association, who sub
mitted a resolution offered at the recent
meeting held at Memphis by the Class C
and I) leagues requesting that rule 36 be
amended so that minor league players can
be purchased by one minor league club
from another without having such players
report to the purchasing club on or before
the commencement of the major league
As the rule now stands, when minor
league players are purchased by one,, minor
league club from another, and they do not
report by September 1, they are subject to
draft from the clubs that they are with on
The commission In Ita ruling says:
we reiterate that If the rule was
changed so as to cover the request as now
made It would be detrimental not only to
the majop league and Class A clubs, but
all players operating under organized
base ball as well.
"The statement recently Issued by the
national commission shows the amounts
expended by major league clubs alone
during the last year for drafted and pur
chased players to be about 8300,000 and In
addition to this, If all the players in ques
tion are to be retained, payments amount
Ing to practically J4,ouo- additional are
made. This shows that the minor league,
interests have been fully protected. The
request of the Class C and D leagues Is
Murray Holds 4o Contract.
PHILADELPHIA. Jan. 4. William J
Murray, deposed manager of the Phlladel
phia National league base bill club, and
Horace Fogel, the new president of that
organization, failed to coine to an agree
ment today at meeting held to consider
terms on which Murray would surrender
his contract with the club. This contract,
which was made by the former owners of
tho ciub, calls for the payment of 87,100 a
year salary to Murray and has two more
yer.rs to run. The new owners of the club
are anxious to lnstal another manager, and
they offered Murray 15.000 to resign with
out litigation. This Murray refused to do
and said he would plaoe his caie in the
hands of the National commissi ,n.
Another meeting will be held tomorrow,
