During the morning session, the position of the league in regard to entering the National Cup competition, staged by the United States Football Association, was discussed. The National Association demanded a guarantee of 15 percent of the net receipts. In order that a decision may be reached in time to register in September, a committee of three was appointed to arrange the matter and report at the next meeting of the league. The committee was comprised of Fred Smith, president of the league, from the New York club; T. Bagnall, Fall River, and N. Agar, of Brooklyn. A favorable report is expected in which case the various clubs in the league will enter and compete for the cup. They will be exempt from participating until January.
The resignation of the Fleisher Yarn club from the league was accepted as that club has disbanded. The league now numbers twelve clubs. With the exception of Shawsheen, every club was represented as follows:
Fall River, T. Bagnall; Providence, F. Pyron; J & P Coats, A. Pringle; New Bedford, H. Pamfert; Brooklyn, N. Agar; Newark, T. Adams; Philadelphia, H. Brooks; New York Giants, M Vanderwegh; Indiana, E. Viberg; Boston, J. Woods, and Bethlehem, J. Easton.
