The Centennials ‘stepped down and out’ some time ago, and the Keokuks came to grief last week. The Eastern clubs did not propose to go to a country village, and not get enough gate-receipts to pay their fare from the hotel to the grounds. Think of a club receiving $1,300 in Chicago, and then have to put up with $13 in Keokuk. They may have got more, but clubs never get enough to pay expenses. Now let the Red Sox, Washingtons, New Havens, and Atlantics disband, and leave the diamond to the clubs that know how to play the national game, even if they don’t always do it.
