[reporting the Brotherhood meeting of 5/19/1889] Those...who predicted a strike during the playing season will be disappointed, as nothing positive will be done until the next League meeting. It is well understood, however, that then the Brotherhood will ask the League to abolish or greatly modify the classification rule, and to do away with the selling of ball players unless the player sold receives a portion of the purchase money. Not a contract for 1890 will be signed before the League's annual meeting, at which action will be asked upon the Brotherhood's suggestions whatever plan the executive council outlines at Sunday's meeting must be presented to and agreed upon by the various chapters before definite action can be taken by the delegates. There is little doubt, however, that the council's recommendations will be unanimously approved.
