The Board of Directors was, in procedure, due to meet Tuesday before the League to make up its report, but immediately upon assembling it had to adjourn, as there was a contested seat. The Board was composed of the Washington, Pittsburg, Louisville, St. Louis, Philadelphia and Baltimore Clubs. Both Von der Ahe and Muckenfuss, of St. Louis, claimed the seat and, as the Board had no power to settle the dispute, it at once adjourned, referring the contest to the National League.
