Prevented From Making Large Amounts Of Money

What a stupendous humbug the national agreement is, anyhow!  Here is St. Louis with two rival clubs, and the entire local base ball patronage anxious to see them play a series of games, but because one organisation is a subscriber to the national agreement they can not meet.  As a result both clubs are prevented from making large amounts of money for their management.  This condition will not last.  Next year St. Louis will have two first-class clubs, and they will play against each other.  It can not only support two first-class clubs, but local games alone will make them highly prosperous.
