The commissioner explained tha he had over-ruled the voting of th rtavers and ordered them to cu Billv in for a full share. Elliott, the Boston third sacker was contacted at his home in San Diego, and had this to say abou the Series-cut incident: "It was the most shameful thin;. I have ever experienced in my base ball career," said Elliott. "And know that Tommy Holmes, he'; Boston outfielder, actually, wa sick when he had to sign the tab ulated results of the voting." Eliott savs that he and Holme ied »h intercede /in favor o Southworth when Ihe team wa voting: on how to .distribute tht money. "At the time of the meeting-, said Elliott, "I expressed .mysel as strongly as I could. Maybe som. of the boys thought they wnuh not be back next year. I don ! know. "All I do know is that they wer. de^d wrong." Holmes was asked to commen on^ the incident and begged off "Man, don't ask me to say any thing," Holmes told one newsmari "I've got lo live with those peop] next year."
