PHILADELPHIA. March J9.
Organized Base Ball is faring an
other at.ack against its existence In
a suit for $900,000 damages filed in
the United States district court here
today under the national anti-trust
laws by the Federal base ball club
of Baltimore. The defendents In the
suit are the National and American
leagues, and the sixteen clubs, mak
ing up their membership, the three

Charles E. Weeghnian and Harry
Clnclalr, formerly of the Federal
If the Federal league of Baltimore
wins its suit. Organized Base Ball
will be in peril of attack by the
federal government, It is said. The
difference between the suit filed to
day and the one begun by the Fed
eral league against Organized Base
ball in Chicago in January, 1916, Is
that the present action Is one for
damages, while the first one was an

To win the present- action, the Balti

In violation of the Sherman anti-trust
law and the Clayton anti-trust act. If
It proves this and recovers damages,
lawyers said tonight, the government
may have to take cognisance of the
The Baltimore club alleges that It was
not considered In the negotiations last
wintef which reaulted In the so-called
peace agreement between Organised
Base Ball anl Federal league owners
and that in consequence It suffered a
loss of $300,000 and aaks for triple dam
ages under the federal anti-trust laws.
The eomplalnts gives a history of the
present organization of the gauss and
Its operation, mentioning the National
agreement, the National commtsaton, the
base ball players' fraternity and the
various leagues that enter Into Organ
ised Base Ball. The complaint recites
the organisation of the Federal league,
charges that' Organised Base Ball en
tered Into a conspiracy to wreck It and
goca Into details of the negotiations
whereby the Federal league was elimi
nated from base ball competition.
The Baltimore club charges that the
National and American leagues are oper
ating In a combination of conspiracy to
restrain trade and have conspired to
monopolise or attempt to monomollse a
part of the commerce of the states In
violation of the federal anti-trust lawa.
The complaint states further that In
the alleged conspiracy to wreck the
Federal league Organised Base Ball
gave or secured to the Brooklyn Fed
eral league club $400,000 to induce that
club to cease competing with the, de
fendants and that by cash contribu
tions of not less than $50,000 and "flat
tery and persuasion," Induced Charles
E. .Weeghman and Ws associate to
leave the Federal league.
The complaint alao states:
"The plaintiff is Informed and believes

cording to Information of the plaintiff,
of the defendants, James A. Gllmore,

MANY INQUIRIES UNDER WAY
CLEVELAND, March 27. With
a toll of at least thirty persona dead
and forty or more In.lured, federal
nnd state officials and officials of the
railroad company have begun an In
vestigation Into the cause which
early today led to one of the most
disastrous wrecks In tho history of
I he New York Central's lines.
Three trains, Including the Twen
tieth Century Limited, westbound,
the New York Central's palatial flier
and two sections of No. 86, known as
the Chicago-Pittsburgh Limited, east
bound, came together In collision
near Amherst, o., thirty-seven miles
west of Cleveland.
Three Thrown Together.
Hcports generally credited were thst the
first snd second sections of No. 89 were
proceeding st a rapid rate and at some
points were only a mile or so apart when
the second section crashed Into the first
section, tho Twentieth Century plowed
Into the wreckage of the first two trains
which bulged over from the parallel
tracks and the three were thrown to
gether Into a mass of debris.
The roaches and the engines of No. M
were toppled over end wreckage wss piled
thirty feet high. Two cars were smashed
to Junk. Fourteen coaches were ever
turned. General Manager Moon In an official
Statement said this coach wss a "modern
solid steel coach." Passengers and oth
ers who were on the scene did not all
agree aa to tha correctness of this state
ment, many contending that the coach
was of wooden construction. Those who
dispute the sssertlon that tha coaches
were sll of solid steel pointed to tha fact
that the car In which the fire atarted
the "death coach," aa they called it
was torn Into small fragments, which
burned like tinder.
Mr. Moon Issued the following state
ment: , ,
"About I !Q this morning first No, M.

Amherst, O. ' Shortly after the train
started te proceed and waa moving at a
