A story going the rounds throws a little light on the New York situation. It appears that John B. Day has been gradually losing his grip on the control of the New York National League Club until, at the present time, he owns barely one-fifth of the stock. The other reputed stockholders are Soden, Billings and Conant, of Boston; Abell, of Brooklyn; Brush, of Indianapolis, and the Spaldings. Down deep in his heart, it is said, Day cherishes no deep affection for some of these gentlemen. A little over a year ago his relations with the Brooklyn and Chicago clubs were certainly not fraternal. If Mr. Day could consolidate the two New York clubs with a capital stock of $200,000, each of the present clubs taking half the stock, he would be able, by forming an alliance with Talcott, McAlpin, Van Cott and Robinson, to hold control of the reconstructed organization, and in the future nothing would be impossible for the majority of the stockholders., quoting the New York World
