[reporting the NL special meeting 3/2] The admission fee question was the first business. The Pittsburg and Washington clubs at the annual meeting forgot to have the privilege of selling three tickets for a dollar renewed, and it lapsed. At yesterday's meeting they asked for a special renewal, but this was refused. That made it certain that the Philadelphia Club would not get a renewal of the twenty-five cent privilege. Messrs. Reach and Rogers made a strong fight to hold two of the clubs with them, as it required a two-thirds vote, under a special agreement, to deprive them of the privilege, but it was in vain. Since Pittsburg and Washington could not have their concessions, they were not disposed to see Philadelphia alone in privileges, and accordingly a resolution making the fifty cent fee apply to all League Clubs was passed by a vote of 7 to 1. Turnstiles will be placed on all grounds, and the visiting club will receive twelve and one-half cents for every person registered.
