Tacoma Times, November 17, 1916:

Pittsburgh Press, November 15, 1916:
Organized Baseball was refusing to pay the settlement while the Baltimore Feds’ lawsuit was still active, and the former Federal League owners were threatening to start a new outlaw league. The idea behind this proposed third major league was to take away eight potential markets from the angry ex-Feds.
I guess that makes some sense as a strategy, though I’d have been inclined to invite the Feds to lose even more millions of dollars trying to pass off inferior players in inferior markets as “major league”.
