[reporting the NL meeting 11/21-22] The question of dispensing with Colonel Rogers' services as counsel and attorney to the League, and, incidentally, with the payment of his salary of $2,000 a year, was brought up by three League clubs. The other six, including Detroit, sustained Col. Rogers. The latter, however, became offended at the action of the three—New York, Boston and Chicago—and offered his resignation, which was finally accepted, after all efforts failed to induce a withdrawal of the resignation. The League thereupon also resolved not to retain another attorney at a fixed salary, but to instruct President Young to employ one whenever, in his judgment, the interests of the League so demanded and to pay his fees out of the treasury. Of course, Colonel Rogers will be retained on every occasion.
