The experience of the past three years of regular professional ball-playing has pretty conclusively shown that there is but one plan for running a professional club successfully, and that is by regularly engaged and salaried players, paid by an incorporated stock company. The system of co-operative nine has proved a failure, for the simple reason that no such nines can be made amenable to that control of its members required to created a thoroughly trained and disciplined professional nine.
