|Date||Wednesday, January 23, 1889|
The Sporting Life's intimation that the Messrs. Booth and Farren had not become financially interested in the Baltimore Club is confirmed by both Messrs. Barnie and Waltz. The latter writes to a contemporary that he and a partner have purchased Vonderhorst's interest in the club and the the partner is “a prominent Baltimorean, with plenty of money, who admires the National game, but for business reasons desires that his name be not know in connection with the present deal.” Doesn't that description fit Mr. Vonderhorst exactly? Mr. J. W. Waltz is the traveling representative of a big fancy goods house in Gotham. He is said to have a comfortable bank about, and has the reputation of being a clever man of business.
