Stop the persecution

March 28, 1892
A certain Liverpool publication treats the Houlding party of the Everton club in a most unfair manner, and, indeed, it is open to question of their statements are not libelous. The private characters and occupations of several gentlemen are criticized in a most un-English fashion, and observations made of a particularly offensive and personal nature. Mr Houlding and his supporters have left the club, and are willing to forego their legal fight to the name of Everton, and why on earth should they continue to be persecuted simply because they wish to use their own ground for football purposes?
