The St. Louis Club have been armed and equipped in as perfect a manner as it was possible to do. The expense attending was simply stupendous... As to an idea of the expense of this undertaking it is enough to cite the figures at which some of the men have been engaged: Mr. Graffen [Mase Graffen, the manager] will draw a salary of $2500; McGeary the same figure; Miller and Bradley $1800 each, while Clapp shrewdly auctioned himself off at $3000, the Bostons and Hartfords being the disappointed bidders. This makes in toto $11,000 for the serves of five men.
