The Columbus Club, of the American Association, has signed Kuehne, who played third base last season for the Pittsburg team, of the Players' League, to play third base in place of Elmer Cleveland, who recently "jumped" his contract and returned to Pittsburg. The clubs directors deny the statement made by Mark Baldwin and published in a Pittsburg paper, that he had returned the $200 advance money given him by Columbus. A criminal prosecution against Baldwin is threatened unless he does return it by the time the Pittsburg Club opens in Cincinnati on May 6.
