Nashua Telegraph, July 25, 1911:
The control of the Boston National baseball club passed into the hands of President William Hepburn Russell Monday. The announcement that neither “Ned” Hanlon of Baltimore, Md., nor anyone else, can buy the club, followed the transfer of stock.
Baltimore will not obtain a franchise in the league without precipitating a baseball war between the leagues, according to Edward Barrow, president of the Eastern league, who issued a statement criticizing certain members of the National league. President Barrow said “he was feeling pretty sore” over the manner in which Baltimore was induced to believe that it might get the Boston National league franchise.
Ah, the good ol’ days, when the Eastern League could keep a straight face while threatening the National League.
