The two older leagues. Mr. Pepper
said in outlining the defense after
the plaintiffs had rested their case,

league was a monopoly within, the
meaning of the Sherman anti-trust
law. ' ' i. ! ' -

from various states. The Sherman

The complaint of the Baltimore
club, the attorney declared, had nar
rowed: down to two charges, first
that organized baseball heads, and
especially Ban Johnston, president, of
