Date Sunday, July 2, 1871

[Athletic vs. Boston 6/26/1871] At times, the conduct of one man, who holds a position in the Water Department, was disgraceful. We consider the officers of the Athletic were derelict in duty in this instance, as they had but one course to pursue, and that was to eject this drunken individual. It is the toleration of just such fellows as this that calls forth the disagreeable comments that have appeared in the newspapers of other cities with relation to Philadelphia ball audiences. The Mayor has kindly detailed a squad of policemen for the purpose of preserving order, and if the officers of the club are unable to remove these disorderly characters, it requires but little exertion to notify a policeman, who will escort them without the enclosure, and, if necessary, to the station. One example will be sufficient, and it is to be hoped that the next instance will receive the attention it merits.
